Here's my WIP right now, Its me, Pixel pushing. I thought i'd go with the more abstract/playful idea than try to get too serious. I think the Background needs some work. I wanna keep the piece grayscale except for the "pixels". Any ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Edit: I also wanted the light source to be coming from the "pixels" so any advice on that would be helpful.

Anything? Anyone? nothing? Really?

Your idea is really interesting. Just try to increase the contrast using vivid/less satured colors. It would be magnific.
