This is an allusion to two of the wonders of the ancient world, namely Hanging Gardens of Babylon and Pyramids of Gisa. There are waterfalls of light, some of which flow upwards. Not that I noticed it earlier but now it also reminds me of citadel of naxxramas. Btw a 12 color palette was highly limiting, anyhow it was a good practice.

Very smooth animation and color usage is just fine. Only flames look kinda dull but there is nothing you can do beside sacrificing some other colors because its limited to 12 colors :)

I like how the animation has a spring feeling to it, nice one :)

Metaru, from your comments I'm somehow sure you were hardly even born at 80's. And yeah it's the pyramid so it's retro, and I'm a product designer as profession, so I'm quite aware what the design looks like.

Thanks guys and gals, yeah blue palette also reminds me of Another World/Flashback too.

Haven't watched Immortel but read the comics, Enki Bilal rocks.

Freedon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/29/2010 14:54

Remind me of the movie "Immortel, ad vitam" by Enki Bilal too, looks like the pyramid of egyptian gods coming above New York ... I like this kind of pieces, nice work.

Has a Flashback feel to it.
