 Hi Victor! 

Great art! 
I am from Brazil and I have a game that talk about bicycles. 
Now we are finishing a version that also talk about the Riots. 
I would like to use your image in the YOU LOSE screen, can I? 
The project is open-source, and the files can be downloaded here: 
You can find the pixel art from the characters here: 
More info about the game here(in portuguese):

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 2/16/2011 11:13

I did!  It was like that feeling you get when you find Waldo because it was such a subtle frame and shape with the nearby plantlife, haha.

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 2/15/2011 18:17

hehe, thanks for take a moment to look at this ^^ have you seen the Mantis?

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 2/15/2011 12:52

I find new bugs every time I look at this.

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/17/2009 09:20

 The robe doesn't get so baggy in the arms of the Christ. 

Aside from that, fantastic piece. Love the colors.

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/9/2009 13:20

TheInquisitor - Thanks!

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/8/2009 07:53

Wet Paint - Its true, maybe i need to edit the skull... thanks for the useful comments.And I'm glad you like the third layer, it is true that animals are better

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/8/2009 07:50

Skurwy87 - The truth that it should improve the palettes I use, I hope to learn more and improve. And the rest, who knows XD

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/8/2009 07:45

Blueleds - Thanks! ^^

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/8/2009 07:43

Darchangel - Thanks for the very useful information, thanks! ; D

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/8/2009 07:42

smk - Thanks for yout information and comments are very useful ^^

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/8/2009 02:27

Very cool pic, this one.

Wet Paint (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/7/2009 19:10

Great choice of color and I agree with the others who said it depends on your monitor as to whether or not you can see the wonderful skull at the bottom. I also like the animals throughout it: the snail, the birds, the iguana, the mammal in layer three.  

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 10/7/2009 14:14

very atmospheric although the first plane (the skull) is barely visible, it runs together with the background. you could use a bit more complex color ramps, or define the tones in a more contrasting way. either way, it's a cool picture that deserves highest grades. hope this is not the future we're going to see. . . :) big up mate!

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/7/2009 07:33

 fantastic mood and so much detail in the skull, love it

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/7/2009 04:14

Love the colors, love the the whole piece. It's too bad you were not able to enter it in the challenge, #1 for sure. My favorite part are the bugs and flowers on the skull.

I have seen this on 2 different monitors - On a Dell Ultra Sharp it looks exquisite, no need to change a thing. On my other monitor (a generic older model) the skull is harder to read, so your monitor definitely plays a big part.  

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/7/2009 03:24

Nice. Of course it depends a bit on the monitor someone is using, but for example I have a very high contrast and brightness on, still it feels a bit out of contrast :) Then again, you might not even need an edit, as it's cool that the skull isn't noticed right away... Your choice mate.

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/6/2009 18:48

Smk - Maybe, everything was indeed a war, I had in mind , i love war games .I think you're right, though the skull would not be seen easily, but maybe I've gone a little, soon I will modify a bit. ^ ^

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/6/2009 18:42

Manjaman - it is true that is forced, but I wanted everything tight to the composition, and , the tower without nothing seemed very empty, so I fill it with the sole of the plane before, but maybe does not look good ^ ^. thanks for the comments : )


smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/6/2009 15:07

Reminds me of Red Faction: Guerilla for some reason.... Might be because I've been playing it a lot for the last few days ;D Great work. Perhaps a tad more contrast would be nice though.

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/6/2009 11:34

This piece is gorgeous but your layout isn't. Your foreground is not radable (as a foreground) at all. We have to concentrate to understand the skull is closer to us than the the background. Would have been better if the skull had been higher than the second plane...

Edit : same problem with the plant which is growing "inside" the tower of the third plane...

Very nice work though :)

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/6/2009 07:37

Thank you, ^^

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/6/2009 00:24
