Where babies come from.

Inspired by ThePixelKnight's no longer no longer existing no longer challenge entry and W. Somerset Maugham's "The Magician".

Rather last minute, so could certainly do with some cleanup.

Very cool, I love homunculi!

 Peculiar, but exceptionally well done.

Oooh very cool :)

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 9/13/2011 00:43

Beautiful & atmospheric :) It's just the bottom ring that look a bit less than perfectly elliptical.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/13/2011 00:11

 that looks good :) could have needed some lighter blue's 

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/12/2011 02:57

This is so awesome idea-wise and not bad pixelled either. Just didn't like the hard shadow under the baby. Ofc got my vote.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/12/2011 01:34

Definitely creepy. I haven't told you what the candle is made of, or what vital fluid the homunculus is suspended in.

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/12/2011 00:28

Impressive work and terrific idea!

Muiriled (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/12/2011 00:08

 Wow. creepy, yet amazing

Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 9/11/2011 23:27

Yay creepy candle baby!  The jar lighting is exquisite.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/11/2011 23:19

I guess another vote is coming from me too!

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 9/11/2011 22:38

Awesome. I'm going to be using this as a reference for dithering in the future. As for the baby, I can't really decide if this is a wonderful way of imagining babies come to life, or just creepy.

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 9/11/2011 22:11

Lovely :)

GreyScale (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/11/2011 21:50

It's beautiful, and it's even more amazing how quitckly it was done. *-* I truly admire your skill.

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/11/2011 21:41
