Carnival City - Rio by WarrenLouw Carnival City - Rio by WarrenLouw
Recently I was contacted to create some art for one of South Africa's biggest casino's, Carnival City. [link]

This is the first carnival theme (Rio Carnival) and it looks like I will still be getting to numerous others from around the world. Why the Jester? Well, he's the mascot to Carnival City.

This is one of 4 illustrations that I created for them so far, which included way too many late nights considering the awesome deadline. Was quite a challenge, and even though I couldn't quite put in the quality I would have liked to, it was definitely a great experience.

Painted in Photoshop CS4 with an Wacom Intuos 3 and lots of coffee.

Some brazilians saying jesters are not there... If a samba school would choose a theme which includes jesters, they would look like this, for sure.

The Queen is absolutely beautiful, but guys here in Brazil don't dress up as jesters; the male suit we see as related to samba would be this one: [link]

Great, flawless painting! :hearts:

The art is flawless, very realistic, the woman is very beautiful, but i don´t remember seeing any jesters here in Brazil, that´s too much "Cirque du soleil".

Try searching for "carnival malandro" in google, a guy with white suit, hat and red stripes. i think it would be more authentic.

Thank dude! Well that jester is the mascot to Carnival City, so I had to include him like that. The jester dude as far as I can tell is doing a kind of world tour. Next is Mardi Gras, either in France or New Orleans. It hasn't been confirmed just yet.
