Dark Harlequin by Intactus Dark Harlequin by Intactus
Everyone knows there's something wicked in clowns of all kinds, especially harlequin kinds.

Mystic creatures performing in a dark, sinister, almost perverse gothic masquerades in the spirit of medieval times. Invisible and mute observer of man's wickedness. Perhaps it was some vile deed witnessed or unattended beauty misplaced that drove this one to attend to his own appetites.

Pieces of bells missing because there was another thing i drawed on the same paper. I liked this harlequin so much that i had to give it it's own picture. =)

Very good your artwork!

Didi you vectorized and then trowed some shadow at 'im right?

Beatifull idea to mesh up the old style mask ball with the bells stile on top.

Are you a Vampire the mask player? Be cause you just have the style.

perhaps, dark ages it's your favorite right?

thanks for sharing.

Keepers of tales long forgotten, observers and performers in twisted parodies of this infernal tragedy called life, tales of their own lives being the most tragic of them all.

A rather well done depiction.

I like this
I like it's softer edges
It's noble and slightly tragic
like a guardian of something time has forgotten
or the host to a room full of broken dreams.
