Mindsquish by justanotherfool Mindsquish by justanotherfool
I feel like my brain has liquified and is currently running out of my ears after working on this thing... my eyes are going insane from having the zoom level almost maxed out to be able to edit this thing... My god.

I am actually really really really really really happy with how this bad boy came out. My precisssoussss.... ALL MINE!!!

Thank god for my inhuman patience and spare time. Please please please comment on this piece as it means alot to me.

Edit

you ->NEEEEEEED<- to view it full view... There is no point to seeing it unless you have full view... Trust me on this and click the frickin image.

Gaze into it and loose your sense of balance =P

--------------------UPDATE-----------------

You won't notice the difference between the new version and the old veresion.

I did though. I have been staring at the bloody mistake since I first posted it... I've even had a fixed version of it ready on my drive for at least 4 years now as well...

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-08-23
Although Mindsquish by *justanotherfool will (as the title suggests) do funny things to your brain if you look at it too long, it's intricacy and the amount of effort put into will more than make up for it in the event of any lasting damage. ( Suggested by seinin and Featured by blackice )

Ouch! This is a really evil creation :) My eyes what have you done?
It is wonderful btw. It very well shows that you can really do good looking pixel art with only 2 colours and no need for all this lolly pop palette colours. Amazing effect this hypno blurring "I see things but I know they aren't there". It must have killed you slowly doing this(not only the time it took but also the never ending cruel attacks on yer visual nerves)!

There was a reason it was called "mindsquish" it took it's toll on my eyes 'cause I had to work on it at a highly magnified level which was actually worse at times. Thanks for the great comment, and if you liked mindsquish, check out my featured deviation "Mindkiller" which uses mindsquish as it's cornerstone. It's quite neat. =P

And one reason for doing this in 2 colors is that I suck at coloring stuff =P (but I intentionally used black and white for the effect.)

Very intense piece. I just spent thirty seconds studying about 2% of it, and it was a very good time.

I will comment:

Wow. This is amazing. I love how it vibrates and changes color when you look at it for a while. It reminds me of celtic knotwork and of a maze book I used to have when I was a kid. I think that may be part of its appeal. You get lost in this piece.

To repeat: absolutely amazing. Thank you for posting this. :+fav:

Firstly thank you for commenting, and fav'ing.. i'll be going "Hey, thanks for the fav" in every single one of you who faved this.. (in your profiles that is).

Yeah, i love the kind of mazey feel at times.. and i've heard the celtic thing a couple of times.. it just started off as boredom, drawing patterns on a school desk and eventually covering the whole desk in this stuff... *grin* Too bad i did it in pencil and its gone forever... *sigh* it wasn't that good anyway

See, this is why you must take a digital camera with you wherever you go. I have a picture of a doodle I once did on the back of my left hand during three concecutive boring classes. Maybe I'll post it as a scrap sometime. 'Mindsquish' is still awsome though. Are you thinking of making prints?

Prints? You think it's good enough for printing? I'd love to make prints, but i don't think i've got anything good enough that would sell enough...

Better yet, stick it on a forward and add that if they don't send it to 20 people in five minutes, their crush will never love them. And that the forward has been going since the 16th century. ><; It works on all the other ones!
