A bit of an oldskool romp. I felt like practicing 'shape-bluffing', a method for adding abstract detail often used when pixeling logos in the days of  teh skene, and also employed by some game artists as well (Dan and Henk, most notably).
I thought I might find the practice useful for game graphics.
Also I kinda missed working with a saucy 16-color ramp :D

Possibly unconsciously influenced by Achewood.
All you asymmetry cultists, enjoy!

Great job!

The preview has "ilkke" written all over it.
Very nice, you should teach me how to do that.

great great great!!! I love that strong edges and the way you managed the colours through them. Smooth!!

And also it seems to be a heavy golden head. Really good and hard work!

Too much knowledge, technique and care here!!

yey, seeing the preview it was obvious who is behind. top-notch as always.. and top-down (in terms of lightsource), why change something your fans are used to =D

metal shading is just awesome, damn, i've recently started a logo here. now, halfway finished watching your piece, i needa work over the whole piece or clarify my letters made of stone, thank you

edit: always thought i don't like cats, but it seems that if they are coated with gold and only consist of a head i want to stick them on my cars gearshift, yey, this one on the gearshift would be awesome =P

I love the shading and I love the detail but the face seems kind of off to me. Almost like one side is bigger than the other.
