This would look good hanging on the wall somewhere. Very well done composition. There is a lot of color here, excellent contrast, interesting arrangement of line, shape, & tone. Keeps my eye moving all around, exploring. I'm not a fan of descriptive titles, so I think you could've done better with that. In my mind, the paper white of the bone, the arrangement of the red, blue, yellow, green, & black, work perfectly together with the lines, shapes, & tones. Perfectly.

You get the Flying Pig award for a fine art composition.

I wish it were more obvious it was a car, but I really like the heavy pp'g on this.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Love the composition and the PP on the car to give it a textured aged look. The skeleton adds the halloween touch to the scene. I think that this had potential for greater visual impact if you added a little bit of age/texture to the bone white skeleton that seems to stick out because it does not fit with the PP of the rest of the scene. Taking the texture/colors of the top right and overlaying it over the skeleton at an opacity of 20 -40% (recommend playing with to see what works better) would have added a textural dimension that would have made it 'fit' better into the scene. Lastly, I think this would have been a great opportunity to take advantage of the Expert Editing rule-set to erase the line on the skeleton's forehead so that it appears whole.

Well done on this creation! This is not just another skeleton in a car, but it actually looks like the real thing! As if indeed someone died and was left for years in a car! The colors are wonderful and give a strangely serene feel to the whole thing! It deserves a 10!
