Awesome stuff!

I wonder what state of mind made people voting down this one that much in the party...

well, i assume that it's very hard to appreciate such picture on a beamer, especially that single graphics isn't displayed for a minute or longer. definitely not a party killer but something to enjoy and wonder about at home.

It would seem the judges at the party completely misunderstood the originality of this picture. it was certainly worth a much higher place than #9.

I am glad to see GFX releases like this -- fresh as a graphics-in-general it may not be, but it surely is fresh in the stale pond of C64 GFX where most of the competition is still about FLI vs. who-can-emulate-FLI-in-multicolor vs. who-can-do-it-even-in-hires.

The use of red was unnecessary IMO, though, pure grayscale would have been better.

@ duce: Thanks, that's the one I was looking for! I do like your implementation of the design, it works well with hi-res and the colors you've chosen.

Cool optical illusion. Staring at the skull makes it appear to go from light to dark and back again. Nice work!

Theres also an (almost) unreadable font using a similar style...imagine that in a scroller.

Nice work Duce.

@ saehn : look at the production note, there is a link to the original. You might find other variations of it by google with words such as "skull illusion poster"

So, as long as the idea & design is not by myself, it's not worth of calling "original / fresh / etc" :) But still, it's nice to see that many of you have liked this one, hopefully no one has got any vomiting seizures while staring at it :)

Very interesting and original. I liked checking it out from various angles and distances to see the different effects.

Nice one.

That thumbnail looks strange if you quickly scroll the browser window up and down.

This is great! Nice to see some original artwork. Love the suttle "background" image, how it contrasts to the strong diagonal foreground lines. Fantastic work!
