You took a nice pic, enhanced it, put yourself in it and added a perfect atmosphere. It's a good example of how you can be inspired by a pic, copy some bits, maybe, but still add enough of your own work to make it quite unique.

It is better if you invent everything yourself but now and then "an inspiration" is ok!

Any supplied info on sources should really have been posted in prod notes or something when the images were uploaded here (whoever uploaded them) or by the artists themselves.

Well, the clue was either that - or simply the cropped snapshot below which I grabbed from the movie and submitted along with my entry under the name "original.png"? :-)

Many refreshingly "un-C64-ish" graphics in this compo. This is my personal number two.

Awesome picture and my personal favorite. So stylish and moody. I don't think the format does it justice though.

This is fantastic sir! The colour are beautifully chosen, and especially the cyan pixels are placed particularly exciting. I am in awe!

Atmospheric - moody.

Great theme. There's definitely more stuff of interest going on on the right side.
The music - Green Beret Loader inspired ?

UPDATE: Cargo has become my favourite pic from the compo.

UPDATE 2: Interesting to see the reference image posted by Mermaid. Originally I thought Twoflower had based the face on reference material, possibly added in the hair / wires, and invented a backdrop. All those thoughts have gone out the window. But still, it’s a good image based on a good image.

Really stylish presentation. I actually like the limited palette used here, the orange/grey/cyan suits the scene perfectly. Great work!

gray with orange combination is really interesting but i liked the result. i like pictures like this one which have completely "pixelled" feeling. :)
