I just realized my last update was like 5 or so years ago. Time to catch up with another piece.

Here's a title pic for 2017 demo on Amiga. This was my first demo I coded on Amiga and made gfx for. This one is a title pic. The alien with cigarette is a homage to old Amiga's image from RWO.
This piece is 320x256 and 32 colors. 
Please be aware that I use a lot of dithering as all my pictures are meant to be displayed on a real hardware and PAL TV sets (oldschool!). Sometimes the dithering plays the purpose of a texture and sometimes it's used to mimic the new colors by exploiting the PAL color blending "feature". 
This was done in 2017. You can find this demo on YT.

Yup it's OCS Amiga meaning palette 32 of 4096 colors (no truecolor). I've spend some time on coloring. To be honest I painted this image in Grafx2 in shades of grey and then recolored in Timanthes (c64 tool on windows). The sketch was done in Photoshop. This was also my second real pic on Amiga. The first one was Teapot Genie also here in gallery on PJ.
I have some other images from Apparat demo that I will probably upload soon. 


Thanks for kind words so far. much appreciated

Cool. Maybe you should mention that it's just OCS/12-bit as well? Actually, you have a fun selection of colors (and dithers) here that makes it look different from a lot of ordinary A500 stuff... it even had me wonder if it was AGA at first glance! :)
