This has to be one of my favourite pieces of pixel art. Amazingly stylish and confident

this is one of my favorite pieces of work from you that i think ive seen. purely awesome and i love the subtle pulsing.


user
Dr. Funk (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/21/2011 01:31

 holy crap I think I just had an artgasm! fav'd for sure!

HotDog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/10/2011 07:47

 amazing, awesome, wonderful, fantastic


user
Vanilla tiramisu. (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/29/2011 05:21

What a amazing work! I really like it, colors are nice, like the animation.


user
Psychotron-3000 (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/9/2010 03:33

the colours and distortion really bring it to 'life' =P


user
Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 9/28/2010 20:52

How powerfully intimidating the picture is, is what attracts many people I believe. It's so reminiscent to me from Stephen Gammells work, but at the same time, it's not. I don't know if you know about him. Just a thought.


user
Lizard (Level 5 Sniper) @ 9/6/2010 06:25

What might be retracting a bit is the amount of similar colors you got here.

Jus brainstormin a bit.


user
Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/21/2010 14:26

It's really cool but it don't have that pixelart 'feel' to it. It has more of a colour reduction feel.


user
UjnHunter (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2010 10:08

That is awesome! :)


user
Justincrdibl (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/27/2010 22:33

Coolest/creepiest thing I've ever seen


user
Lordz (Level 4 Murderer) @ 2/27/2010 01:08

Like Alma's Wade from F.E.A.R. Great job man!


user
OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/17/2010 14:40

 Colors are fantastic, pretty crazy stuff.


user
hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/16/2010 23:57

wonderful piece


user
Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/16/2010 20:05

Yeah there's a lot of resemblance.  I think this one is creepier due to both eyes missing, and when he tore his mask off in the movie, it kind of stopped being scary from there.  This one is probably creepier, but the movie was scarier.


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/16/2010 17:51

Doesn't it? I just watched that movie a few days ago on TV, and I can't decide what is creepier.

Anyways, I'm going to have to agree with everyone else. Great work, Helm.

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/16/2010 16:18

This kind of looks like the guy in House of Wax, incredible details and the colors are great!!


user
Pumpkinbot (Level 2 Peon) @ 2/16/2010 16:02

OH SHI-


user
Krigorn (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/16/2010 13:17

Hop, favorites.


user
nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/16/2010 10:52

Wow.  I think this may be the best piece I've seen from you (at least in your pixel work...your comic stuff is fantastic).  It has a nice grittiness that suits the subject and the suble flicker makes it looks like a bloody hologram.  Great stuff!


user
ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/16/2010 10:35

 this is dark, this is helmet!...


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/16/2010 10:31

I triple checked, the image is a .gif comprised of two frames of alternating hues on the purples. Something else must be going on.


user
Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 2/16/2010 10:30

Then my computor is playing tricks with me...

edit: there it is again.


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/16/2010 10:26

I have not removed the blinking.


user
Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 2/16/2010 10:20

I think that it lost a lot of atmosphere when you removed the blinking, though it is easier on the eyes.

Splendid rendering as per usual Helm!


user
Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 2/16/2010 08:15

Great use of colours, this has a great atmosphere.


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/16/2010 06:53

Well that's odd.


user
Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 2/15/2010 13:08

If you care, the preview being over 10k is preventing this from being on the front page (it's in weekly showcase range).


user
Broli (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/14/2010 21:01

I honestly don't care how the initial process of this was created because no matter what, this piece is brilliantly executed.


user
cassiechihuahua (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/13/2010 21:42

Now this is just amazing. I like the blinking effect for the peice, too.


user
SHANN0N (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/11/2010 21:53

 The palette is absolutely great. Really nice piece here.


user
Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 2/11/2010 20:58

That little flicker animation does wonderful things for the mood of the piece. At first, I was really upset that you hadn't polished up the halo bit, but now I think it's an effective way to concentrate focus around the face, and not distract the eye with fancy textures around it.. So, good thinking I suppose. If you'd like to make a tee shirt of that, and sell it to me, I will pay all shipping. xD


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 2/11/2010 14:54

Love it. Very spooky. Wonderful use of color, what else is new with this guy. I loved the pulsing as soon as I saw it. It gives the peice an extra level of polish and life, an ethereal quality.


user
Flarfy (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/11/2010 12:41

Great pallette. Great motive. I find the blinking a bit unneccesary though. But it's okay I guess.


user
Manjaman (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/11/2010 11:51

THIS IS NOT PIXEL ART ! I SEND A PROBLEM REPORT RIGHT NOW !

Congratulations, 6/6


user
elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/11/2010 10:37

This is awesome. Well pixelled and with a great subtle animation.


user
Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 2/11/2010 08:41

Wow, nice colors, looks very scary :)


user
RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/11/2010 04:22

Wow this is freaky!


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/11/2010 03:47

It's not, it's just something I've grown to enjoy and it gives this piece an occult radiance, a suggestion of subtle movement.


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/11/2010 03:11

Experiments are good.

The question(s) which started this is(are) more important than the answer, I think. There will always be disagreement about answers, but the process of questioning what we're doing on all levels should be an everyday driving force for all.

I love this image, but I don't really dig the blinking. Specifically, I don't understand if and how it's part of the experiment.


user
Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/11/2010 00:23

Great job, helm. This is gorgeous in the most disturbing way. :)
