Top notch... it took me some time to appreciate it. Especially the hair... brilliant. I assume it only ended up 5th cause it was not shown too long on the big-screen.

A serious kickass to me. Would like the blood to go from the very top down to the hand but.... And aha, the skulls in the hair (also these barely visible to be the skulls) - top notch!

Fantastic picture - pretty sure this is Louie's own design aswell. So much style and it's such a carefully considered piece. Some dithering turns me down a bit, but the rest completely makes up for that.
One of the best in the compo. Thanks for the chats too, it was nice meeting you.

Wow, I'm glad and surprised that this one placed so well... because it's not what I'd expect would appeal to a compo audience. It's more minimalist than many traditional entries, but is very well executed with an interesting theme. And if I were to voice my own gripes, they'd simply be objections to the few unaltered vertical lines that don't flow as well with the rest of the work. But congratulations, it's a keeper. :-)

In all it's simplicity, this is my favourite from the gfx-competition at X this year. The way of communicating the idea by means of effective use of black and white here is just great. My favourite part is the blue/cyan bit defining the chin and the face itself. My least favourite part of it is the generic dithering of the hand and shoulders. Those are minor gripes, because overall this is a picture that works.
