Simply hit it on the nose to shut it off... if you dare.

I was trying to combine mechanical features to create something totem like that could possibly resemble a face.. even if it's a pretty hideous one. Unsure

It is cool! Especially if you keep in mind that you only used a 3 colour palette.

Thanks. :)

Wow, I thought my robotic thing was cool. This blows it out of the water. Good job.

I read your comments, and I thought that it was Mrmo's work, until I saw that it was yours. I...REALLY love this piece.

user
nedink (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/20/2014 15:59

This is definitely you at your best, got that rusty, wrought iron feel with a wonderful fading aspect. Oh and btw thanks for the palette; people should include theirs more often imo.


user
Mandrill (Level 9 Vice President) @ 7/20/2014 13:05

Cheers, cool you enjoy the colours.

Thanks, chap! Great to hear it's pleasant to you eyes.


user
albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/20/2014 05:39

Fantastic palette! Warm / cool constrast always works. I would use this in a dark lab for a game, or something like that :D


user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/20/2014 05:06

Looks really nice. Even if it's not supposed to be anything, the style and details are very well done.


user
Mandrill (Level 9 Vice President) @ 7/20/2014 03:07

Haha, cheers!

@ bobston

Vielen Dank, freut mich, dass es dir gefällt!

Die Übergänge waren einer der Ziele.

Ich habe eigentlich mit dem Neon-Grün angefangen und versucht eine kurze Palette (7 Farben) zu finden welche sich gut bis auf das extrem dunkle Blau runterskalieren lässt. Ohne die "Lampe" in der Mitte, hätte es aber ein wenig zu langweilig und unausgewogen gewirkt.

Mit dem Effekt könnte man noch ein wenig mehr anstellen, z.B. entferntere Gesichter in der Dunkelheit.

Aber wie gesagt, freut mich dass es gefällt. :)

You absolutely deserve it

Thank you very much, justin. :)

@ Motrox

Thanks!

I wanted to give it some space to "breath" in order to phase it out more easily.


user
king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/20/2014 01:26

Mir gefällt der Farbübergang, wie das Gesicht aus dem Dunkeln kommt, sehr gut. Es gibt einem das Gefühl das da noch soviel mehr im Dunkeln versteckt ist.
Scary stuff, man


user
Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 7/20/2014 00:56

Awesome work.

I specially like the colors and the way that you applied them


user
Emperor_Pixel (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/19/2014 23:48

This reminds me of H.R. Giger, even though it's completelly different to what Giger did.
This would do a cool boss for a shmup!

Reminds me of a tarantula.

Beautiful palette!


user
JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 7/19/2014 21:35

Those are some truly excellent lighting effects.


user
Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/19/2014 19:59

Love the details you put into this :)

I just feel that some places like the bottom are a bit empty. But that could very well be the effect you were going for like a dark room.


user
Mandrill (Level 9 Vice President) @ 7/19/2014 18:40

Awesome that you like it! Your critique is always welcome

Cheers!

It really has a Mrmo flair to it.... I hope it satisfies the master. Shock

user
