Group Picture Masked Ball by ~Puttbill is just full of quirky surprises, an ingenious concept to say the least. ( Suggested by Leonca and Featured by snowmask )

These are amazing the color and intensity the masks are portraying a sense of curiosity and playful dark humor when compared to the dog on the bottom. As a result it seems more atmospheric than it would otherwise. The only critique I have a lack of background as the characters are vibrant and alive despite being dead and they look like they are just suspended in black space. Otherwise I have a lot of ideas here that are spot on.

I really really enjoy this. I was going to move on straight to your gallery when I saw the dead-like bird thing in the nest on top of one of the critters' heads and it just stopped me in my tracks, for some reason, just made the whole thing click for me on an even higher level - wonderful, weird, wistful. Ephermerality of life. The dodo skeleton. All that stuff. Just wow, really ka-wow.

At first glance I thought they were representations of the Chinese zodiac. I see Horse, Dragon, Tiger, Monkey, Rooster, and Dog, and things that can pass for Snake, maybe Pig, and maybe Rabbit.

It's an interesting parallel, especially if it wasn't intentional.
