Great colors.

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/9/2011 19:25

I think it is a heart with an eye

gripfire123 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/10/2010 12:56

it looks awesome. i like how the orange stuff just moves back and forth but...what the thing inside?

imera (Level 1 Private) @ 5/27/2009 01:13

it looks wonderful, love the animation and the colours. the thing inside there reminds me about an octopus

AlexHW (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/15/2009 06:42

I love the fact that the liquid is yellow-orange(you don't see that color liquid too often, unless you're peeing, lol), that takes some creativity, though maybe its just because the creature is purple and so its complimentary ;P


Scribblette (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/8/2009 21:23

The liquid really is lovely. It took me a while to realize the animation of the surface simply scrolls to the left - by making it two pixels thick the flow is all the more mesmerizing.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/6/2009 18:25

Good deal! You won.


Pixelated (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/4/2009 17:12

 Very nice smooth animation, great pixel art. I love it!

fano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/2/2009 19:07

SuperKirby (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/1/2009 23:24

Animation is really smooth.

Noet (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/1/2009 04:19

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/30/2009 11:30

Very cool animation.  Smoooooth.

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/30/2009 01:38

good stuff


Stranger (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2009 23:01

Wow, this is terrific! I can't stop looking at it, It's mind boggling.

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/29/2009 20:50

 So thats what the sine function is for.

Good use of 11 colors :]


Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 4/29/2009 02:12

wow, I love it... so strange.

Tunc (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 4/28/2009 08:56

Love the liquid animation, got my vote. : )

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/28/2009 06:39

Masking effects in the liquid are very effective. Intriguing little machine. Should have more moving parts.

KaLanGO (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/27/2009 14:37

great stuff. realy cool liquid fx...metroid inspired?

Cone (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/27/2009 13:24

i hope this one wins

Tre Le Coco (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/26/2009 04:18

I dont know how its exactly considered a self portrait, but you used some really smooth animation there!

FrostedMayhem (Level 4 Murderer) @ 4/26/2009 01:41

Still don't quite see how this is a self portrait, but hey, its awesome!! Maybe try fixing the preview though, as the rules for this challenge say that it has to be exactly 64x64...

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/25/2009 16:14

I'd have done the same - if  (:3) sees himself this way, it's mighty fine.

besides - It's just to damn awesome @__@

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/25/2009 16:08

ska, I added this to the challenge because at least I can see a face in profile quite clearly.

I know the rules says self-portrait and who am I to say (:3) doesn't see him/herself this way.

Since the rules did not say 'realistic' and because 4 other entries are not actually portraits either I wil override and put it back into the challenge.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 4/25/2009 13:34

An awesome piece, but by no stretch of the imagination could this be considered a self-portrait.

adriprints (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/25/2009 13:32

Is this what you look like?!?!?  Very intense, but I love that you're in an oily bubble.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/25/2009 13:20

This has to be one of the cooler pieces I've seen on this site in a while. Very new feeling! Congragulations!!!

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 4/25/2009 13:19

That animation is excessively cool. Although I can't help but think it looks like it's floating it orange soda. :p

Great, now I'm thirsty. A+ job overall.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/25/2009 13:10

The liquid animation is sexy.

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/25/2009 13:07

Should be put on dark background instead of transparency in my opinion, but nevertheless very nice work

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/25/2009 12:51

The best so far, great stuff.
