Vai Piccino, Vai e Vedrai by Dopaprime Vai Piccino, Vai e Vedrai by Dopaprime
Vai Piccino, Vai e Vedrai
(Go Child, Go, You'll See)

where fortune walks
you can't reach there with the heart any more
only with your feet on the moon
oh my child, you'll see
go and you'll see that
a smile
often hides a great sorrow
go and you'll see
the madness of mankind

Inspired by Vai Vedrai [link] Cirque du Soleil, a song from their show 'Alegria'.

Featuring my OC, Nero Cruxast.

I just wanted to make something a bit surreal, used a different color palette and composition from what I usually use. Though it's just the beginning of October, I'm already in the Halloween mood.

Edit: Thank you for those who revised the title. >u<

This piece is one of these wonderful, magical artworks that tell a story. I don't even know how to describe my feelings towards it but I wanted to write a critique because it deserves it completely.

The atmosphere is sad and joyful in the same time. You have this little child with his old jacket and his broken face, yet he holds these two colorful balloons. He look at this man dressed like a magician, a conjuror. This man with a smile-shaped scar, a beautiful jacket ( the texture is so well done omg ) and a topper. He invites the child to go and see.

And then we see the background, the circus, the big wheel, and the smoke of the big plants chimneys.

"Vai Bambino, Vai Vedrai" sounds very good in italian, it adds something to the piece. It's hard to come up with a title sometimes, and people underestimate its value. You did well, even if it's the title of a song, it's just so well done.

First, you will stare at this wonderful scene. Then, you'll read the author comment. You discover the quote that inspired the artwork.

And you understand the big moon in the background. You realise that the artist made a perfect, flawless illustration of a quote.

You just have to take your hat off and thank her for sharing such a wonderful piece.

Dear, I follow you since a while now. As your follower, I wanted to tell you that I'm very, very proud of you.

I really enjoyed this one, since I was born in the circus.. :3
Neat! I like the dark colors, although it does give off an almost-scary vibe because of that and the expressions. I do like the contrast of the dark colors and the bright balloons. :) Very pretty!

This is really beautiful. Technically, this is really great, but the atmosphere is absolutely brilliant. So surreal, it's difficult for me to describe exactly what I'm felling, but for me it's a real masterpiece. :love:
