Sometimes it's hard to think. and I mean really hard to think. My mind keeps jumping between so many channels it might as well all be static. It's all just a blur of ideas and it can be very paralyzing.

I honestly feel like this is one of the best pixel-art pieces in the world. I mean, I'm not one to speak because I'm not exactly good myself, but this is truly inspiring.

Thanks. i really appreciate that

You've heard the part about it being spooky already, but like how did you get here without realizing the unnatural horror of this thing? Like, great dadgum job and all, but blank eyes and black tears are pretty convincing arguments for fearing something, you know?

On a technical level, I do greatly appreciate your work making sure the tear streaks looks like it has the static running down them. It greatly adds to an effect of "this is her, and she cannot escape it," so hopefully that is what you were shooting for. You certainly got the paralyzing part of the piece done too, as it feels as though she is stuck in some lovecraftian trance from which she cannot escape. My one gripe is the mouth, as it feels out of place, as where the tears fall, whatever comes from the mouth seems to be pumped out. Overall, great work!

gatekid3 responds:

I just wasnt thinking horror when i made it. just trying to capture what i feel

So is this what it's like to chew 5 gum?

CMB pouring out everywhere!

Just changing the channels of your head until you find something good to remember
