Sad World by JohnDSmith

AS OF 9/18/13

Dedicated to all the sad people of the world,….May your sadness be short.

I wanted a look of a sad clown,..
I find a image of a sad clown online ,…..This is really a classic look of a sad clown,…
I use that look to create the image you see here,…
Using PSE 10,…Brushes,smudge tool,and a few filters….Then I ran it through Topaz simpilify. Many hours later,….with a lot of fun along the way,…….I was done,…I think????,…LOL.
First time I have done a image like this.
After my wife had seen this image she said,…He`s so sad looking,…Then she said, your not sad are your?,…..I said honey,.. I have the Lord in my heart,….what do you think?
