The Treachery of Clocks

Author Comments

Another entry for the Clocktopia Art Gallery Collab, this time including frame. This one is based on the famous piece "The Treachery of Images" better known under it's tagline "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe"). Accordingly, this means "This is not a clock".

It took some hours spread over the last weeks, so I can't really tell how long. All done with GIMP and a Wacom Bamboo.

Yes that's my scrawly handwriting, but I didn't want to use the text tool.

Deadline is August 14th noon NG time (tomorrow), so hurry if you still want to submit your masterpiece. (http://www.newgrounds.co m/bbs/topic/1186549/4)

I hope you like it!

Well Strawberry clock never gets old and to think I seen all the crazyness evolve into what it is today, but you have made a nice piece here I even like the little bit "SHINE" you have there but wouldnt mind some more shine to it. and even some more "TEXTURE" in the backround scene there.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
As mentioned above maybe more backround texture and some more shine on SBC himself.

Awesome!

Aw, man! I can't believe you drew this with GIMP! How did you shade it?

Thanks a lot!

I get a little colour palette together for every base colour to add shadows and highlights, like 3 or 5 colours, and blend them together.


Mais, ceci 'est pas une faise...

nice take on a classic : D

Merci beaucoup!

I was thinking of "Ceci n'est pas une horloge." or "...pendule." but I think clock is a proper name in this case.
