Wow, Hunchback II is very interesting. Is there all your zx pictures at PJ or there is some more like HB2?

Thank you, diver.

Well, I used to make these kind of copies of Crash magazine covers when I was a kid back in the eighties... When I found out it was possible to emulate the software I used back then on a PC I decided to make a few more, just for old times sake. So that's probably why it looks like an 80's pic.

Redrawing of original game ads was (and still is) good fun as well. Especially when the original loading screen left room for improvement. Here's one I did a while ago: Hunchback II

Awesome picture. Looking at original illustration i can only say that there is a face missed a bit in the leftup corner, but hell, what a technique!!! I've never seen that style since DAP pictures at Enlight 1997 and spanish game title screens by ACE from far 80s.

BTW it was my dream - to redraw some original posters for the old lovely games using modern editors and techniques.

Whoa very nice! Like the 80's video game colors there!

Thanks a lot.  But I must say that I didn't pick the colors myself: Sir Clive did that for me...
