Gloria's Theatre: [link]

In the videogame Psychonauts, where players dive into the minds of the disturbed, Gloria Von Gutten is a bipolar actress haunted by the memories of her life in boarding scholl and the suicide of her mother.

To me, gloria's level stands out because rather than playing out like a normal platformer, you'll be listening to dialouge and manipulating the scenes of Gloria's through different moods. It feels more like a classic point-and-click adventure with platforming elements, until the very end. Also, Jasper is so cool! Who doesn't love an angry critic?

This might be my favorite level because of my own experience with theater... humorously, the play I produced last year got a bad review from a rather large red-haired critic who was quite full of himself. We kind of deserved it though because like one tenth of the actors bothered to help build the set and tech stuff despite me and the director's passive-agressive urgings. And I ended up feeling a lot like... Betty? Becky? Whatever her name was ^^; Anyway THEATER IS A DISASTER that's why I love it <3

Not played the game yet, but the image looks nice. Also the "dolls" at the top are looking awesome! :D

This is beautiful. I love the colors and composition, they're really awesome!

Ah, Gloria's theater. I hated that level until I figured it out, haha. xD It took me so long, and the dancing flowers were so annoying. But now I think it's pretty awesome.

nice : D u portrayed the emotions very nicely in this. i really loved the colors too, the balanced out composition of the overall image. I don't think my comment can do this drawing any justice o__o lol

I love everything about this, the colors the expressions how you captured the characters, but the thing I love the most is the composition.

Really really awesome job.

Ooooh, this is a great picture! I love all the colors- they remind me very well of Gloria and her mind- and the composition is really cool. (I like how Bonita is floating and pretty much fading into the dark.) Also you draw all the characters really well!! Sometimes I have trouble drawing Gloria, but you've got her spot on! (Loooove her eyes. :heart:)

Nice picture! Good job on it! :D

Such a fitting tribute! And I agree, that level was so interesting. To be sure, it was also one of the most serious ones in terms of plot. You dealt with one of the characters dealing with a serious mental disorder not brought on by being burned in high school or some weird Napoleon thing, but by losing a loved one in an awful way. Then again... Milla's secret room has something similar...

Oh geez, I'm sorry for the babble. Great piece! <3

It does! Except the whole time you are also being attacked by hellhounds and thistle children.
