This piece is wild - I love the decision to keep the hair in textmode, which (along with the pattern on the top) pushes you attention onto the face because that's where all the detail is! Very cool.

Awesome protrait as always! :D

The animation here is  mesmerising to watch. The patterns in it reminds me of those looping animations of Conway's game of life.

The flickering reminds me of CRTs. The end result is pretty cool! =)

Great stuff. I take it you did the PETSCII stuff first and then worked over it? Really love the animation you did as well. Works amazingly well.

I was about to write another comment about flickering tv. Great stuff!

BigPotato (Level 4 MSX) @ 6/5/2021 16:11

Man, that semi-textmode style is fascinating. Really cool!

cjlm123 (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 6/5/2021 14:32

Really creative take on this, I'm very impressed!

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/5/2021 09:09

Absolutely wonderful self-portrait. The animation goes so well with the palette and the happy expression is great. The hair is very impressive, especially considering it didn't change much from the text mode version.

Cyangmou (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/5/2021 02:15

Really interesting animation effects, which I think liven this up a great deal. I like the way how you made the blue pullover pull the eye up towards the focus.

railslave (Level 2 Tulip) @ 6/5/2021 00:40

tripping balls, as they say 

Noctiluca (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/5/2021 00:23

Looks trippy haha. Textmode seems really hard XD It's so cool how you made this,especially like how funky the hair and beard look. 

vrine (Level 8 Megalodon) @ 6/4/2021 16:30

Absolutely hypnotising! I love both versions equally I think! 

Taks (Level 6 Chrysanthemum) @ 6/4/2021 13:59

Wow!  The textmode version is already so good. The animation made it even better.

sjd_sjd_ (Level 9 Leftovers) @ 6/4/2021 13:43

Love the retro feel. The flickering animation reminds me of bad analog tv reception.
