Rubik's cube: Aftermath

As I said some time ago, I was going to make a still and an animated revision of my original "Rubik's nightmare". But it would be too easy to add just some lighting and nothing else, so, I decided to play with different stuff a bit... pixels, words, thoughts... and this is the result. I decided to put the source of light at the top of the cube, so it gets brighter at the center, and darker when it gets further the center of the cube.

For now, this will be the last installment on the Rubik's cube theme. Maybe, if I get hit with inspiration, I can add another piece, but for now, that's all.

As you can see, the cube isn't solved. Perhaps it can get solved someday?. It's up to me, to you...or somebody else...who knows.

Specs: the entire pixelation was made in Paint Shop Pro. No filters of any kind were used. As the text that came to my mind was so large, I wasn't able to pixelate it letter by letter, so I used the Text tool, although I took the anti-alias out to mantain the picture as pure as possible. Only tools used were the brush, the color replacer tool, text tool and the paint bucket.

Hahahah, this if funny. The composition is great and the text is funny.
I have a friend who can solve a Rubik's cube in a minute or two...I don't understand how he does it. I bet he could solve this in no time. Me on the other hand, I'd end up breaking it in frustration.
Good work =) (Smile)

I said this on your past piece... and I'll say it again.

That, my friends, is the scariest rubix cube anyone could probably ever encounter.

I... am... scared.

very nice, would take a long time to solve

I think the color differences are due to the lighting effect.

pretty nice, but. . . you have got what looks like more than 6 colours, so you wouldnt be able to solve this as the cube only has 6 sides! :) (Smile) ahh thats just me being finickey, nice deviation Thumbs Up

Orange, White, Blue, Red, Green and Yellow + shades of each for the highlights/shadows.

I only count six base colours... and.. incidentally, the sides are thirteen cubes in length - nice detail.. or coincidence.

Nice art, either way.
