Backseat Drivers by JohnSu Backseat Drivers by JohnSu
This piece is both fanart and a birthday present to :iconlarein:. Happy birthday, you!

This comes from larein's Journey in Nightmare, which was originally a game idea. And maybe still is! I don't know. But it has had the honor of occurring three times in her gallery.

Starting from the top, there is Rouge, who is a jerk with flowers growing out of his face.
Then there is Wendy, who is a girl whose arm was cursed into a glass-cutting arm.
And on the bottom there is Clockface, a man whose face was cursed into a clock? Or maybe his clock was cursed into his face. I am unclear on the matter, but he is my favorite.

Anyhow, this was fun to draw, as I got to use colors I don't usually use (Blue! Look at all that blue!), as well as draw fewer than four characters in one picture. Also, coloring night pictures is surprisingly amusing.

About the deviant:
Larein is a purple-loving artist with a knack for both fan art and original characters. She has a subtle humor that is expressed through her characters. Go check out her stuff, especially if you are into very girly things (though there are a lot of different things in there too)!

Made in Flash

Somehow, it just doesn't look like 6:00. Mr. Clockface needs winding?

That aside, I love the nighttime atmosphere, and how it effects the colors. Gorgeous lighting!

Hello, John! I have not had the pleasure of commenting in a while.

I really love the night time lighting in this. The light source looks well done and it has a neat atmosphere. It feels like your shading has gotten more in-depth and it is quite nice. The girl's pose (and for some reason, her hands) are really cute.

It just seems like it deserves something clever; something about conquering time, or going with it, or something, but I just can't put it together in my head in a way that sounds awesome enough.

As not for who the stopwatch tolls.....it tolls for....never mind!^^;

I am guessing the resoundingly strange and utterly bizarre theme that makes this story idea what it is what attracted you to it for a Fan-art February correct? Or you just like making people with faces (as in clock faces!):D Did I ever tell you John that I view you as a modern day version of Lewis Carrol???(Well either him or Tim Burton.....maybe both!:blush:)

Still the giant thorns in the background are a big plus!
