c64 multicolor mode. Made in exactly one hour, timed and filmed. The film won't be released, sadly.

something about fields of the nephilem always puts a big old smile on my face, porbabably the sillyness of english goth boys making ennio morricone styled music. they where a pretty cool band though. and this is an awesome tribute to the album cover

Whoahh... love the palette. The composition is great, like how you've made it seem he towers over you... intimidating.

Uploading the video now. Ter-o was awesome enough to edit it properly to 22 megs. He's a god.

i didnt know this was put on pj! i thought this was the best piece out of your c64 dump at pixelation.

i would LOVE to see the video.

B.O.B. : thank you for the critique. Eclipse = correct. About upper lip, those are the teeth inside the mouth.

Looks like an evil version of the 'V' comics. The palette is superbly used, and the character design is AWESOME!

Ahh, another c64 piece. My God man, you must bleed c64 colors...

   First and foremost, let me just say that I love creepy scenes with large amounts of black making up the piece (I guess, it's more of a Chiarroscurro fetish I suppose). This piece is great in that aspect, though I wouldn't go so far as to say that its actually using Chiarroscurro( can't remember if it's one word or two...). The detail on the face is great, and so is the technical execution of the color placement, which is nothing new from you.(...I hate you...) 

My only issues are:

 A) the shadow on the moon looks as if it is bieng eclipsed rather than a normal shadow,(i.e. the moon seems to shine more from the lower portion than the sides... ) and

B) the brightest colors you used to designate his eyes seems to be mixing in with the shinieness bieng reflected off his nose.(his right eye to be exact)...Also, I was wondering why his upper lip is of a brighter shade than his lower lip, seeing as how the upper lip curves downward, so the bright eyes couldn't be creating it's strange light source.( unknown lightsource I suppose?)

Other than that, amazing execution, detail of the face, and choice of color. I'm not trying to be a prick, I'm just trying to treat every one the same and crit as much as I can. The real downside of this piece was trying to find its flaws, seeing as how I know nothing of c64...Great effin' job though...

ohhh nice. brings back memories of nights listening to fields. and memories of hardware, where carl mccoy is at his coolest. =)

This is great.  Why won't the film be released?
Also this is fav'd. 

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/18/2006 18:44
No. Look at the cover of the first Fields of the Nephilim LP for all the inspiration.

I also immediately thought ninja scroll. Did you use that as reference?

@Gnarf; The chin is not off centre! The chin is perfect right where it is...

Ugh, killer piece, nothing to say. I LOVE the trees in the background, & the hat is neat.

Gnarf (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/18/2006 18:35

Just so awesome!  How you fit so much texture in with such a crazy palette really makes for a great combo.  The chin seems a bit off center, but that's all I can see.  Awesome work as always.

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/18/2006 11:04
