Looks nice, I think that Mindchamber has captured the essence of Pico with the nonchalantly violent pose that he strikes. Also, the blending of the colours together, without many hard border lines tend to just add an almost pastel quality to the image.

Pastels with Pico? Is he mellowing out? Nah, I'm sure it;s just a blip.

Of course, I could say that it makes it look more street artistry, as if you would expect to see this upon some sort of wall - that's what we need to adorn NGHQ - spray painted murals of some of the NG greats.

I'm new here so if someone could explain what pico day is? If I want to make Pico Day submission does it have to be related to Pico or I can make movie about anything I want?

Ah well, it's still great looking! :)

I work on 30Fps and it seemed that more than half the submissions were lower than that, and the result is a really slow animation which people got tired of waiting for. I might animate something simple of next year, but honestly it seems like more of a burden to the people waiting for the play button to appear.

Perhaps you should do a still version, and also an animated version. Maybe a small 10fps animated one (for the slower animations) and a larger 20fps (for the faster animations).

Nah on second though that's way to much work...
