Ellipses.

More Ellipses.

And a bit of a background too. With some lighting gimmicks. :)

Atto the vote is for. :yoda:

This one looked great from the start. Instantly recognisable and beautifully cinematic. Was worth the vote straight away but then you added the portrait and made it even better. The subtle way you introduced it into the background with a reflection is convincing and also poignant and that takes the picture even further, turning it into a genuine tribute to the man.
And that tribute is exactly what the brief was supposed to be. So ....
I vote Atto!

And one for Val, there is.

Thank god you didn’t just rip off the great mans designs like that other entrant did!
It’s still Tron but it’s a reworking that, to me, is an alternative version of the movie. A bit like Bladerunner was a reworking of ‘Androids....’.
Those ellipses work really well and the colours mimic the movie perfectly.
Great work!

*guessing Banj made a Blade Runner joke*

Congrats Atto! Even though you called someone old who was born in 74! (yes, I checked, you naughty little tyke you!)

also, I forgot to vote :dry: but I think I would have voted Atto, though I like both end results. I really like the inclusion of a billboard Mead :) It's a great tribute!

Thanks all!
I don’t remember calling anyone old!? Certainly not someone born in 74 as I was born in 76! But I guess your memory slips as you get old huh?
