Carnival Sunset Eyes by KatieAlves Carnival Sunset Eyes by KatieAlves
Oh god... just... just no. Let's never try this again! This took me 3 hours to do! I seem to put all the important details into the most difficult spots! I wasn't going to add the dots, but without it, it really didn't look like much, especially the swing thing. Now those dots were a pain to do, because they had to be so small! So give this one some love, it was disgustingly hard to do. Favourite it, even if it does look like crap! XD I'm kidding! (sort of)

The wonderful/horrid idea was from Kennedy Smith.

Alright, so we've got a roller coaster with the sun behind it. Balloons floating into the sky (No matter what kind of carnival/fair/exhibition it is, if there's balloons, there's going to be a billion floating up into the sky) Then on the other eye there's one of those sky swings, a drop... thingy? I have no idea what those are called. People walking around with some of them holding balloons. A ticket booth/food booth/game booth and finally a ferris wheel.

So... for the love of god! Don't ask for a tutorial on this XD!! My camera actually wouldn't be able to handle it!

And as always, it's brighter on my facebook: [link]

OH OH OH! Don't forget to join my Halloween Contest! It's going from now until the end of september! [link]

First, let me just start by saying wow! I love how you captured the actual glow of the sun. The light details are just stunning, and the stray balloons are a nice touch. Not to mention the people at the bottom and on the roller coaster look fantastic. I really love your golden lashes, it really blends in with the sun. The layers on the eye are cool. Please tell me how you did the loop? It's stunning! You are an amazing artist, always remember that. I've seen a lot of your work but this one always leaves me speechless.

Like I said for the other one of yours (the Harry Potter one), this is just amazing. It's extraordinary and it's obvious how talented you are.
What actually made me fall inlove with it, however, it's the way you exposed it - the setting sun it looks like it's almost moving and so do the roller coaster or the balloons. You just have, in some way, the amazing abillity to create a whole universe without making it something big and spectacular, it's juist the small carnival of every child's dreams and it holds in itself all the warmth and beauty of such moments.

Wow. This is gorgeous. I love the detail you put into adding all the little lights. Must've taken some time.
