The Night Circus:Contortionist by Fluffball264 The Night Circus:Contortionist by Fluffball264
Anyone heard of "The Night Circus"? No? Neither had I until yesterday. If you don't know I'm an avid player of "The Echo Bazaar" an online browser based game. "Not another one!" I hear you cry.

WELL! I'll give you a quick overview. Echo Bazaar is based in Fallen London, an AU in which London fell into the earth, the city has become a place where devils walk the street alongside the Church dealing in brass and souls, you can run with the urchin gangs, exchange favours with the Rubbery Men, or explore the depths of Fallen London (Far more difficult when the Masters of the Bazaar have ordered the removal and destruction of all original city signs!) and nightmares and madness are far more dangerous than you can imagine. Trade in in Whispered Secrets, Echoes, relics of earlier Cities and far more to find what you need.

The great thing about EB is that it embraces whats makes most browser based games terrible. It's narration, EB is all about the narration, it's absolutely fantastic and really immerses you in it's own little world.

BUT that's not what I'm hear to talk to you about XD
This piece of art is based upon "The Night Circus" a similar game made by the same company in the same game play style with all the emphasis on the narration again.

And the result is stunning.

You can get a taste of the game's contents by reading the diary I've been putting together as I explore. [link]

Finding games that I can enjoy as much a a good book is incredibly rare, so all I can do is recommend this to anyone who enjoys a story.


Well.....that was a bit of a ramble eh?

The basis of this picture is a section of the circus where you can view the contortionist performing. The art style of the site and description on the card lead me to this.

Water colour and acrylic with water-proof pens.
The Night Circus online browser game belongs the Failbetter Games.
The Night Circus book belongs to Erin Morgenstern

The art is mine :) (aka don't steal)

LOVE it. I'm amazed there isn't a ton more Night Circus fanart out there - it's just BEGGING to be turned into all sorts of creative media. <3

thats so cool, those are her tattoos in white right?
Fluffball264 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you!
I would tend to say the black, but that's just because I saw her as having tied her hair back so if there were any tattoos on her head we wouldn't be able to see them.
But the pictures is pretty loose in style so it certainly could be her tattoos in white ^^

I didn't detect any sarcasm! :) Questions like that are always more fun to answer, and thanks again!
