You may not believe it, but my gallery has been around for five years this month! In celebration, I revisited one of my oldest pieces:

I tried to make the new version capture the eureka moment more triumphantly. Spending time sketching variations of it on paper helped the final image to closely represent the one in my head. The colors are fairly optimized with a simple, split-ramp palette. No dithering, cuz that's for suckas, yo.

Nice work on the outer lines ! I also like the composition and the colors as well.

ArmyFrog (Level 6 Major) @ 11/3/2020 07:53

The bombastic misspelling of clue made my laugh out loud.

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/10/2012 11:57

Perfect picture! Funny, dynamic, and with a mustachio!

Kiwi (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 12/9/2010 06:49

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/8/2010 07:53

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 8/4/2010 12:07

very awesome! luv it

junkboy (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/4/2010 06:05

Hurrah for five years of kick ass art, like this great piece on display here

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/3/2010 11:12

Damn man, that's fantastic! You're such a natural. That pose and design gives Dr Wallace SO much character. Even the background is stupendous. I cannot fathom how you managed to turn bad perspective into whacky-but-working perspective like that, but you've definitely achieved it..

I shall rate this a 5, favourite it, rate it 5 again and then favourite it once more.

Please tell me you'll turn this into an adventure game!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/3/2010 06:14

Fabulous! One of my fav pics got a facelift :D

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/2/2010 22:13

good work! 

MMM103 (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/2/2010 18:30

I love the happiness that comes from him. You can almost feel it radiating off the screen. and the spelling of 'clew' is an awesome touch.

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 8/2/2010 17:37

fantastic. I love the ripples his feet makes in the carpet.

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 8/2/2010 16:48

This is great! Beatiful execution of a great idea. The text confused me for a moment, the C looks like a capital I to me (serif). The shadow below Mr. Wallace seems to be a rather odd shape, it doesn't look quite right to me. Beyond that, no complaints. I love the colors.

st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 8/2/2010 14:10

heheh i like the humor :) the perspective is very confusing where the two angles in the bg meet though. bottom of the book case looks like its going off in a diff direction than the top.

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2010 13:44

 great scene. funny 5/5

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 8/2/2010 13:31

Nice stuff. I like the picture of the nude \o/

The sig is a bit too large tho I think. It distracts somewhat.


dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 8/2/2010 13:05

I love growth pieces! This is for sure one of those. Very well done indeed!

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/2/2010 12:51

i want know how you made this awesome pixel art..  

Artist (Level 1 Seaman) @ 8/2/2010 12:47

 Really Fantastic. I agree with Mr Blu. Kudos for you 

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/2/2010 12:40

 Wow man, that wins so hard. 

Mr Blu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2010 12:11

 Amazing.  A drastic improvement, I feel the full brunt of his majestic finding.  It even makes me want to shout along.  INDEED A CLEW!
