That's my fave shot of gytha. Also, contortionists are way cooler than the average clown that blows little foam balls out of their noses. Contortionists do things that are real. They cant pretend to bend over backwards, nor do they need to :D

I'd say a lot better, not only because of my interest in contortion but also because it merges two different roles in the circus. Of course, this would work well in the circumstance you've provided, in which the clown wears clothing that shows the bend. I've seen a video where contortionists dressed up as stereotypical clowns in baggy costume and did a standard enterology act, but it didn't seem that effective with the costume as it would without it.

With the artwork itself, I find it really good. There's a great use of perspective and shading, and Gytha's costume looks great. My only concern is that the hips look like they're in a middle split, but it could just be the angle.

Yeah, I've seen ragdoll acts where the contortionist was wearing a big, saggy jumpsuit and it really killed the act for me.

I'm not totally pleased with her hips either, but you live and learn.

I remember seeing a documentary about circus and they mentioned that not only young acrobats and contortionists, but also young clowns are trained to be flexible, of course not to the same extent but i wish they were because in your drawing it looks absolutely amazing!! :#1:

I'm totally picturing her being a 'sporty' clown on a kids show a la LazyTown.

Going off the theory that a fear of clowns is at least partially a fear if the breakdown of Mores...

Slightly better? At least some expectation of what may happen can be created.

I've heard that before.

I don't know if I entirely agree with it; I mean clowns can be expected to act out of the ordinary, so to my mind there is an expectation right there.

Ah well.

Well, all I can say with that is that people seem to form their expectations in different ways.

Another possibility for clowns in general is bad makeup jobs creating an "Uncanny Valley" effect.

Which might lead to in interesting study in correlations with advances in animation techniques and exposure to the same... blah bla blah FOR SCIENCE blah.

It's a hard call, I avoid clowns in general and make threats at ones that come near me. *shudder* Creepy, fake.

I'd resent that if it wasn't true. But I haven't encountered this specific example of fetish, so I was being... hmmm... open minded? Or is that closed minded? Nah, all just humour.
