Process and intention explained over there.
Thank youu iLKke! Means a lot.
This has to be one of my favourite pieces of pixel art. Amazingly stylish and confident
i love it!
Definitely a favorite.
One of my favourites on the site. :)
Who doesn't love zombies? How can I not fave this. :D
this is one of my favorite pieces of work from you that i think ive seen. purely awesome and i love the subtle pulsing.
holy crap I think I just had an artgasm! fav'd for sure!
amazing, awesome, wonderful, fantastic
What a amazing work! I really like it, colors are nice, like the animation.
the colours and distortion really bring it to 'life' =P
How powerfully intimidating the picture is, is what attracts many people I believe. It's so reminiscent to me from Stephen Gammells work, but at the same time, it's not. I don't know if you know about him. Just a thought.
What might be retracting a bit is the amount of similar colors you got here.
Jus brainstormin a bit.
It's really cool but it don't have that pixelart 'feel' to it. It has more of a colour reduction feel.
That is awesome! :)
Coolest/creepiest thing I've ever seen
Like Alma's Wade from F.E.A.R. Great job man!
Colors are fantastic, pretty crazy stuff.
Yeah there's a lot of resemblance. I think this one is creepier due to both eyes missing, and when he tore his mask off in the movie, it kind of stopped being scary from there. This one is probably creepier, but the movie was scarier.
Doesn't it? I just watched that movie a few days ago on TV, and I can't decide what is creepier.
Anyways, I'm going to have to agree with everyone else. Great work, Helm.
This kind of looks like the guy in House of Wax, incredible details and the colors are great!!
Wow. I think this may be the best piece I've seen from you (at least in your pixel work...your comic stuff is fantastic). It has a nice grittiness that suits the subject and the suble flicker makes it looks like a bloody hologram. Great stuff!
this is dark, this is helmet!...
I triple checked, the image is a .gif comprised of two frames of alternating hues on the purples. Something else must be going on.
Then my computor is playing tricks with me...
edit: there it is again.
I have not removed the blinking.
I think that it lost a lot of atmosphere when you removed the blinking, though it is easier on the eyes.
Splendid rendering as per usual Helm!
Great use of colours, this has a great atmosphere.
Well that's odd.
If you care, the preview being over 10k is preventing this from being on the front page (it's in weekly showcase range).
I honestly don't care how the initial process of this was created because no matter what, this piece is brilliantly executed.
Now this is just amazing. I like the blinking effect for the peice, too.
The palette is absolutely great. Really nice piece here.
That little flicker animation does wonderful things for the mood of the piece. At first, I was really upset that you hadn't polished up the halo bit, but now I think it's an effective way to concentrate focus around the face, and not distract the eye with fancy textures around it.. So, good thinking I suppose. If you'd like to make a tee shirt of that, and sell it to me, I will pay all shipping. xD
Love it. Very spooky. Wonderful use of color, what else is new with this guy. I loved the pulsing as soon as I saw it. It gives the peice an extra level of polish and life, an ethereal quality.
Great pallette. Great motive. I find the blinking a bit unneccesary though. But it's okay I guess.
THIS IS NOT PIXEL ART ! I SEND A PROBLEM REPORT RIGHT NOW !
This is awesome. Well pixelled and with a great subtle animation.
Wow, nice colors, looks very scary :)
Wow this is freaky!
It's not, it's just something I've grown to enjoy and it gives this piece an occult radiance, a suggestion of subtle movement.
Experiments are good.
The question(s) which started this is(are) more important than the answer, I think. There will always be disagreement about answers, but the process of questioning what we're doing on all levels should be an everyday driving force for all.
I love this image, but I don't really dig the blinking. Specifically, I don't understand if and how it's part of the experiment.
