Maybe this was the inspiration?

I find myself looking to the right side here all the time, as my mind kind of blanks out the left one as a bitplane bug or something. Anyway, not my fav among the Mirage pics, but as always the technical execution is flawless.

Somehow I come to think of:

Yoshimi

Maybe it is the twin theme that does it? ;D

I just love how you have redrawn the lips of the two faces in the background.
In fact little details like this are often forgotten.

Thank you for the small details in most of your pictures. Be it pink or light blue. A pixel here or a hint there. Would love to see more stuff like this.

Hmm. I could never do anything like this, but I have loved the previous Mirage pictures a lot and this kinda leaves me cold. There doesn't seem to be enough 'beauty' in it for me to get anything out of watching it. In my opinion most of the picture is just garbage and then there are two small parts of faces which seems to be mirrored, even .. Sorry to say, but I know Mirage can do so much better, this pic doesn't seem to manifest even half the potential of this wonderful pixel-wizard-druid-magician-sorcerer <:-)

ok. it's an old b&w movie, a doorbell rings, a man opens the front door, there is nobody there.. but on the doorstep, there is a little handwritten perfumed note saying: "dont ever mess with the evil twins again" ?

now have a closer look at the left eye of the clown on the lower right. i guess the winking eye makes it a lot more obvious that the clowns are mirrored.

We don't know for sure who renamed it.

I guess the artist behind the picture is either all subtitles or then sighing, for you people not getting the joke. ;)

Welcome to the C64 scene, Helm!
User Comment

Kinda scary (not the art) if you look at it this way: art from the scene, locked in a meta-dialogue with the scene. People making jokes of other people or rebutting them trough their submitted pieces. Completely unintuitive and limiting, in my opinion. More like watching a soap-opera, less like looking at art as an end in itself.

I wish artists would keep the dialogue for forums and inner drive for their art. Just another opinion.

this feels so very much as a full photoshop/layer job. i like the circular and crescent shapes alot, but the colors not so much.

but, why bother with a simple belittling of two certain persons like this, when it makes the whole effort backfire? such a shame, and what behaviour... I like the subtle "E" and "J", though :)

The famous theater mask suddenly got apathetic. Reflecting the mental state of the modern (read: western) world pretty well.

@jailbird: the figurative stuff is _behind_ the background for a change... if you don't like that then take it up with the wrath guys ;)

Timanthes, layers and recycling is cool and all, but I preferred the old Mirage. Don't understand me wrong, it looks really really amazing, but I start to miss the traditional pixelling soul from the latest releases from your workshop. And no Mirage, this wasn't a call up for another picture in two days which somehow relates to pixels and soul! ;)

@mermaid: just responding to recent comments... i _had_ to recycle in an obvious way and put scary clown-twins in there

Hmm. I prefer The Pianokeys Are Black and White. Recycling isn't always a good thing.
