on the one side....that hurts the ego to know that nobody will ever hear of you or know you...on the other side you'd be nothing...and that'd make you perfect, I mean how can nothing do "something" wrong? :p. I feel like I've heard these phrase before but never watched Doctor Who either....I wonder where...

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/7/2010 08:35

I don't, actually. As this is rock with a rocky texture, not something else with inexplicably rocky texture. I dislike the practise of 'shape bluffing'.

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 11/6/2010 14:58

On shape bluffing: see here

ilkke made the term up, but I think it fits pretty well for what it describes.

What is 'shapebluffing'?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/28/2010 07:20

Love how the silhouette integrates into the ground. Also love all the adorable shapebluffing :D

The muted tone would make this a great wallpaper or a bg for a demo.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/27/2010 11:45

Thank you.

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 10/27/2010 04:01

possibly one of my all-time favorites! congrats! :)

Spherical Ice (Level 2 Dealer) @ 10/26/2010 12:49

Really awesome. "Not to have died, but to have never existed" reminds me of Doctor Who. :D

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/25/2010 17:06

 Really smooth! I like the background texture.

greengun (Level 1 Gangster) @ 10/24/2010 09:50

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/24/2010 07:52

Please. Quoting a 2004 release by Mayhem?


"Between the bushes we stared
At those who reminded us of another age
And told that hope was away forever

We heard elvensong and water that trickled
What once was is now away
All the blood, all the longing and pain that ruled
Are away forever

We are not dead
We have never lived"


However this is not directly an inspiration to this image.

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 10/23/2010 19:38

Thank you for the kind words :)

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 10/23/2010 09:09

By a long margin the best in the weekly so far. Great conceptually and nicely simple in it's execution. 

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/23/2010 09:04

Fantastic piece Helm, nicely snuck in head also.

Mallonee (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/23/2010 08:32

astounding :O you made excellent use of the colors and of widepixels. Awesome job :)

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 10/23/2010 08:31

Of the pieces submitted to the challenge so far, I definitely like this one the most O_O

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/23/2010 08:22

'disqualified' i guess.

brilliant piece!

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/23/2010 08:10

What is 'DQ'?

Red_Mist (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/23/2010 08:04

You used extra colors in the  preview piece! (Sneaky way to up the ramp without getting DQed (Disqualified for the contest lol.).. brilliant!)

Actually loved the font in that btw. Loved the art,  this is my favorite entry so far. I love the design of the rocks, the cave art, the colors everything. Great job.

eishiya (Level 6 Dingonek) @ 10/23/2010 07:45

That is some nice use of 4 colours. I don't know what to make of it, but I am really liking the background.

baco (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/23/2010 07:30

This is probably one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. I love the use of the brown and the way you created that texture for the background. Its is quite detailed and overall lovely to look at. To me, I get that spraypaintt graftiti kind of feel. What a lovely piece. c:

Neocrone (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/23/2010 07:00

wow i like it ^_^

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/23/2010 06:14

No. I have never watched Doctor Who.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 10/23/2010 06:06

Love the use of black.

Side note: Doctor Who reference?
