Mau5head V.2 by Pureav Mau5head V.2 by Pureav
Aight guys so this is version 2 of my contest entry (version 1 in my gallery)

EDIT:

So, the voting ha closed, I came in at 3rd place. Votes don't necessarily decide who recieves the top prize so I still have my fingers crossed.

But anyway, congrats to all who made the top 10 and a big thank you to all who voted. Results are announced on the 3rd Aug so I'll update then with either good news or info about the winner :)

Meanwhile, here's the link to my official entry page, you can still leave comments there, but if you do, please make them thoughtful and preferably you'd be a deadmau5 fan so you understand what the concept is actually about: [link]

EDIT 2:

I made a minor update to the indent gradients, made them radial instead of linear and added a soft edge to them. Dono why I didn't do this to begin with... #brainfart

Peace, Lance

So, I'm watching a video currently of Deadmau5 on Netflix wearing this helmet.
Did you actually win first place after all, or am I confused?

Hey. Yup, I ended up winning :) Got a flight out to Hollywood to meet him and again to New York to see the head once it was made. Here's the official youtube vid of when I met him: [link]

Can't believe I never updated any info on here about the win... Thanks for the heads up, I'll put something together. I owe a lot of thanks to the voters on dA!

Well the prize was obviously to have it made and worn, but I also got two free trips to Hollywood and New York too (along with lots of other sick stuff that happened along the way). Did you see the official video of when we met backstage? It's on his youtube channel here: [link] You get a good upclose view of the head :D

mik3j Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
haha of course of course, i was just wondering if there was more to it :). that's really cool though, i'm sure the trips were quite the experience, especially because you live overseas. i didn't see that video, but wow. "cuz it was awesome." congrats again. i saw the head very up close during the concert since i showed up hours early and got a nice spot in the front row. deadmau5 concerts are always awesome.

Excellent work. Congrats on winning!

I have to agree with the "less is moar" philosophy. A lot of the contest entries were just loud and garish and not really practical designs.
