The overall perspective of the cylinder/spiral of bodies is just insanely impressive. And achieving this kind of a focal point + movement in a c64 pixel piece is exceedingly rare. So glad, you are part of our scene, Veto!

Great motiv and impressive MC art. I don't even know what it lacks to the "usual Veto awesomeness", my suspicion after watching the Workstages.GIF in production notes is that your really clever plan to create depth by color effects in the concentric/circular lines of the web might produce a little harsh contrast when red/blue/purple meet.

Still can't vote this less than 10, but what Yazoo and Shine say, one of your "weaker 10s" ;)

Wow! Excellent work, reflects that status of today's social networking madness, and is incredibly detailed for Multicolor. Next time try NUFLI for such a motive :) Thumbs up Veto!!

great stuff, the theme matches my thoughts on social networking :) but makes me whish it had been done in a bigger resolution, because c64 restrictions force the loss of a lot of details.

Just look at that hand reaching out and grabbing the shoe of the other person. It's so rich of details! Just stare on it for a while, and get overwhelmed. Of course a few more pixels here and there in the cyan sky-area might improve the dithering, but it is cleaner as is and it presents the motive spot on. 10/10!

OMG, not only is the picture nice and the technique good and recognizable as Veto, no, also the topic is awesome.

thanks for the comments.

actually i was kinda sure, that this picture would be tricky in different ways. the amount and size of the people here would benefit from higher resolutions, this is for sure. strictly speaking: the idea for this was initially meant for a 1080p hd painting, but i simply thought it is a cool challenge if this can be done in low resolution. could have been a whole mess, but even it has flaws here and there the picture works imo.

@cons: yep, it is true. the final version is not exactly what i had in mind, when this had been started. the whole process was vibrant. eg it was planned to show a third layer with shadows of people in the background, but the impression was overcrowded. same with the bg-color it tended to look more 2d-ish the more the light blue areas had been enlarged. tbh i am not totally satisfied with the overall blue sky.

anyway. the result makes me happy. it was fun to play with a complex scene subject, which is not necessarily obvious on first sight.

btw i recommend to watch it on the real thing.

I really like the idea here, but I feel the pic is a bit unclear. I'm thinking maybe the cyan is too bright for a background.... Still a nice job!

More details? WTF? This picture has so many amazing details it's unbelievable. I was very impressed by this one.

this is not one of my favourite veto pictures. but i can imagine how hard it must be to put all those details there though, especially because it is multicolor. so the result is still quite nice and impressive. i know it took ages to turn almost every single pixel again and again, and so i can say its a great attempt to see what can be squeezed out of multicolor.

Though technically great, I miss the level of detail I am so used to with Veto's paintings. Perhaps it could be redone in HiRes with moar detailz for 10/10?

Seeing this now, after we talked about it in the process of its making, I can totally relate to the things you said then. Its a complex motiv and having it fit into multicolor does seem like a huge challenge. Knowing the workstages, I see the sacrifice that had to be made, especially around the spider, to fit it into the specifications. The overall impression does work, but I wouldn't be surprised if this didn't turned out the way you would have liked it to.
