This works so well. Kind of trippy, definetly see the 60s inspiration. Really well done!

cjlm123 (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 6/8/2021 12:03

I really like this.

amberMechanic (Level 3 Sea Otter) @ 6/7/2021 07:50

@Hapiel It does feel a bit of a music poster you're right but I was thinking 60s at the time. I'd be happy with Abba though!

amberMechanic (Level 3 Sea Otter) @ 6/7/2021 07:43

@SeDiceBisonte I was definitely thinking 60s  psychedelic images borrowed from art noveau when I was making it.

amberMechanic (Level 3 Sea Otter) @ 6/7/2021 07:36

@Christoballs Thanks! The animation was going to be the final thing but then I decided the still image was better and I kept the animation for the preview.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 6/6/2021 05:03

I don't know what exactly it is about your expression and colors and background, but I feel like you could be in Abba or some other 70s band!

Great work, I enjoy the preview a lot too!

verionj (Level 2 Corporal) @ 6/6/2021 04:34

Impressive! The contrast, background and the animations on the thumbnail. All great =D

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 6/6/2021 02:05

Great piece! Really digging your use of EGA. The animated preview is the cherry on top, with its shimmering eyes and expressive eyebrows.

Very nice. Great use of the colours. I like the very sparing use of black just to accentuate some parts as well.
And lovely clusters in the hair too.

railslave (Level 2 Tulip) @ 6/6/2021 01:49

wow, unique 

gawrone (Level 11 Dumpster Fire) @ 6/5/2021 23:27

I second @SeDiceBisonte. Retro pixel art style + new wave psychedelics = 

vrine (Level 8 Megalodon) @ 6/5/2021 18:42

I second the use of blue as the main shadows being really great!

BigPotato (Level 4 MSX) @ 6/5/2021 16:44

One heck of a stylish piece. I dig the big, clear clusters.

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/5/2021 15:07

It's reiterating what I said on Discord, but I also love the use of blue as the main shadow colour. The large blocks of colour remind me of a screen print, as does the trippy pattern in the background. I get a strong late 60s psychedelic poster vibe from this piece!

@sjd_sjd  So glad you like it!

amberMechanic (Level 3 Sea Otter) @ 6/5/2021 14:25

@zombieMode I ended up with the blue shadows so I could sneakily add a few black accents for the bits where I really needed it.

sjd_sjd_ (Level 9 Leftovers) @ 6/5/2021 14:08

Great work! I love the expression you have captured in your self portrait.

zombieMode (Level 6 Garbage) @ 6/5/2021 11:16

Awesome job!! I love the big shadow shapes, gives it a very atmospheric feeling, especially with the darkest being blue and not black. Super cool background too!

amberMechanic (Level 3 Sea Otter) @ 6/5/2021 11:06

@Sarahboev Thanks!

Sarahboev (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 6/5/2021 10:58

Lovely job on this!
