I always feel so discouraged when I see people's WIPs, 99.99% of the time they are better than my final product :l

It shouldn't be on how good it is, it should be on the topic and how much emotion you put into it.

I don't play much games, somebody said if that was inspired by Matrix ( lol ) and I said no... Actually I was a little inspired http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/69252.htm - by this. and I always had this idea of this room on my mind :p.



WIP:


edit:
btw, brainstorming about your piece and re-doing it is always good, everybody can do it :p do it and you will have a way better ´feedback!

WIP sound box. How is it?

Interesting idea, can't wait to see if thats the power source or whats being powered. The circle in the box is a little 'jagged' in the top left and bottom middlish, should be fine if you fix it. (soz that was towards S257)

Fixed up the lines a bit, added some WIP shading to the part in the the middle. Not sure about the color of the actual box though.

I know you've called it done and all, but if you happen to revisit the piece out of boredom some time in the future, I believe making the tubes the same blue glowing color would create a better visual effect. Like in your very first WIP, I preferred the white sketched tubes.

Riley, yes I was thinking about that too, I will probably change it, I am just going to finish the third entry before.

Final entry, finishing them both.

The destroyer robot who was kept in the dark finally got some light and it's recharging.

I don't think that solar is an unusual light source.

I attempted to make an entry this week. I am so bad at this. D:




A zombie attack has happened and this person is taking advantage of it by using one of the zombies as a power for their TV. The zombie is trying to reach him, but can't get passed the wheel.

I don't know. I am not a big zombie person, but this idea kept popping in my head. XD
