Why wouldn't it come off... by scatterherz Why wouldn't it come off... by scatterherz
Okay this isn't very surreal, but I don't want to submit my precious Joe to that dreadful "portraits" section.

It's amazing to think that here is this work of your's and unless you know it's Joseph (the Elephant man) it does indeed appear surreal proving that most people's view of reality is in fact wrong...i could make an excelent thesis on this.. Thanks your work is not only wonderfuly done, it's inspiring!

I think the eyes are perhaps a little too bright, otherwise this is good work!

Personally, i think it is very surreal. The eyes are so piercing and the whole piece is haunting....As usual, a very interesting picture!

Well, he is quite realistic, the only surreal things are those swirls of white and yellow around. I guess the're bits of symbolism here, I can't think of it now, I just know that I tried to draw a growing despair and pain.
