A character concept for a detective that can telekintetically move his own brain around.

Kung Fu movies inspired Dave Gilbert, and he mentioned the idea to me.

Nice little thumbnail. I think it will be cool if you decide to develop it one day.

obscure and beautifull, this image tells a story.

Wonderful! 5/5 and fav. Love the upper jacket and the colors are great as usual.

it's so silly and paradoxical :)

i think my favourites could do with a little company also

Since I am the one who inspired this idea, I might as well defend it!
The idea beyond the power was that the little girl would ride the brain and be able to get into places others couldn't.  Also, the grandfather could inflict some serious damage with the brain, bringing the phrase "fight with your mind" to a whole new level.

i love how youre method of color reduction goes to the warm side of colors. most color reductionists(lol) like me go for the unsaturated greens and dark blue purples.

Its very nice image. Just: whats the point of moving your brain around (telekineticaly or any other way) while being investigator ? It seem to me that lately there is more and more pixel pieces popping out on pixeljoint that are very nicely done, but have (with all the respect) totaly fucked up or stoned idea. Not my cup of tea Im affraid.

ChaosEmerl, probably when someone comes up to mug you, you can slap them in the face with your brain and either run off or kick their ass while they pause thinking what the hell just happened.

Like all your other works, this is great.

That pixelart is awesome, but that's a pretty stupid power.  What purpose could it possibly serve?  =P

Awesome palette bro.

Macks (Level 5 Detective) @ 6/5/2006 03:32
Very cool. Nice uese of colors.
The highlight on his knee looks like the girl's(?) hand, in my opinion.

Hairyu (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 6/4/2006 16:04
I already thought this was awesome,'cause of shading(mainly the pants), aa and the kid's expression,  but then again 13 colors?You've been touched by THE pixel itself or something like that!

Nevanda (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/4/2006 10:28

 WOW ! 13 colors only ? Excelent...

limenu (Level 4 Killer Klown) @ 6/4/2006 02:56
damn, and again i can just say "beautiful" ;p

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/3/2006 23:18
I like the compostion. The deepest red seems off in its saturation. The single highlight on the man's knees looks like the girl's hand is blurry because there are no other highlights in the pants. The shirt may need an additional color too, no buttons. I don't see this as finished somehow.

Gnarf (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/3/2006 19:32
Freakin' awesome man.  Your style of shading/highlights is great!  I love how well the colors work too.  Nice work!

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 6/3/2006 16:05

Before I forget, I loosely based the girl's outfit on Jin Chonshu's.

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/3/2006 14:31
I really like the floor's texture. The highlights/shading on the man's jacket is my favourite part of this.

mikl3 (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/3/2006 14:18
flying brain. Cute!

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/3/2006 13:27
Move his own brain?  Interesting concept.  Beautifully executed.  :D

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 6/3/2006 13:11
Looks awesome! Little kiddie is cute

Stitchy (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/3/2006 12:22
The colors, the shading, the AA... just perfecto. The kid seems right amused, too. xD
