I wanted to try using Aseprite for something a bit bigger. There was cga palette on the palette presets menu, so I decided to use it to make a sort of combination of two earlier pictures I have submitted to this site.

This was originally supposed to be 200x300, but I kept making the canvas larger, and it ended up being twice as big :)  This is the biggest single picture I have submitted to this site, but It really didn't take nearly as much time to make than of some of my earlier stuff.

EGA stands for 'Enhanced Graphics Adapter'. It was a display standard that allowed 16 simultaneous colors  from a palette of 64, at a resolution of up to 640×350 pixels. (Copied from wikipedia, I don't really know this stuff too well either)

This picture uses the default EGA palette, which is the same as the only palette available in the previous display standard CGA.

Dude's got balls for taming that EGA, just like in all the other taming works you've done. By the way, what does EGA stand for?
