The hologram of alien Santa. He breaks into people's houses and leaves presents for the kids who kept their pets free of cerebral parasites.
edit: Fixed the few stray colors that escaped my notice. It's down to the proper 4 colors.
@SeDiceBisconte Thank you very much!
Funnily enough, this is my least favourite entry here on PJ (although I spent the most time on it).
I knew that I wanted to make a hologram once I read the theme, but after talking with Jinn, I decided to go old-school and just use the three primary colors in a CRT-like effect. I usually like even more outlandish aliens, but intentionally kept this one simpler, because any fine details would be lost in the RGB combo and if I made the alien too... alien, it would lose the Santa familiarity.
Thanks! I wouldn't say skill exactly. I do have decent understanding of how displays work, so same as my other work, I think I have more perseverance and basic aesthetic sense than actual talent. In other words: pick at it until it feels right.
Didn't get a chance to comment at the time but came across this again and it was my favourite entry for the Alien Santa challenge. There have been other pieces with a similar colour-blending effect, but I can't think of any where it's so thematically appropriate or looks so good (those scanlines are fantastic). I also love the design of the alien Santa so much!
the fact that we can see cyan, magenta, white and yellow when they're not there... skill!
They are just... involuntary bug testers.
Thank you very much! As he would say: ϗѻ, ϗѻ, ϗѻ.
Thanks! He deserves more colors, but that's what happens when you get An Idea.
Thanks a lot! I hope it's on the safe side of eye-cancer.
In 2077, Krampus gives bad children seizures instead of coal.
Wow that a remarkable Santa!
Woah! Extremely cool execution, and I love the illusion of the pure white.
Amazing job, crazyfox!
