I kinda liked this entry in the competition, it looked very 3d'ish on the big screen :) But this screenshot in csdb doesnt do the effect..

I love you guys, it's really entertaining to read all your comments :)). And i look forward to seing Oswalds improvements on this mosaic stuff, you seem to know exactly where i wanted to put certain pixels but failed and put a wrong one there instead :). But it's ok, you don't have to prove that my picture is crap, since the low votes already gives you the right to slag down on me ;).

@HCL: definition of a critic: "someone who knows the way, but is unable to drive."

Thumbs up from Ed and Joe!

This piece of art really put things into perspective. If a lot more people had the guts to do stuff like this! We simply love it, David!

oswald, it's called abstract art. picasso suffers from bad anatomy as well, but still people pay millions for his works of art ;)

Anyways, I liked the image at the party. I could hear a rustle of surprise going through the crowd at x2006. Jup, even though it wasn't my favourite, I was amazed by the amount of guts to hand this one in as an entry.

No constructive comments here, sorry :) but a nice 7

sigh, constructive critism:

1. the mosaic parts should be roughly of the same size instead of a, changing the size to get the face shapes right b, changing the size so where there are no details its easily covered with a few pieces.

2. I'd prefer each piece have similar texture instead of having hair like stuff in the hair parts.

3. not even the fact that its made out of mosaic pieces saves it from getting the impression of bad anatomy.

I really liked that one. Original idea. "GOOD" execution.

At least I semi-like the shading.

Oswald: I always appreciate constructive criticism, but saying it is poorly executed without any reasoning isnt constructive :)

@JA: The gouraud cube.. maybe it's a hidden part ;).

@TB: Thanx for your comment! Honestly i don't know what's with those other guys. I thought the scene would be more positive to original paintings rather than the usual photo-based stuff, but maybe they just want to try if i'm really immune to their critisism :). I mean if i saw a picture like this and i didn't like it, then i sure wouldn't bother writing a negative comment about it.

Private war, hm? The fact is that this picture lets me dream to be in a church with organs playing.... Great stuff!!!
Also, the idea is really special and look at all the fragments.
So tell me, whats the problem here...

I agree with Oswald (for once ;), and i get the feeling even HCL agrees. But he is immune to it anyways. he said so atleast...

look at the votes (I did not vote..), and sorry for the honesty, but maybe I dont need to be a bricklayer to tell if a wall is badly done, and I hope I dont have to be dishones to get respect (style..)
