Wanted to try doing a fullscreen GBC pic a while now.

8 palettes with 4 colours each. You can check the palette to see the duplicates and such. Actually it is 32 colours, but 13 are unique.

Also added a border, because I can.

really nice!

It would be great to see game with Yus on gbc :)

(I still play zelda on gbc from time to time - approx. one time a year ;)

 so simple, yet so amazing

No I don't. I have not checked this on a real GBC, I just know it would work because it is within the limits of the system.

I really like this picture!

Can I ask (just because this is something I want to do myself) if you have any good way of selecting colors for gbc? The screen has a really weird non-linear/saturated kind of color representation. So if I take a picture and display it on a gbc screen the colors look very different from what they looked like on the computer screen, in a sort of unpredictable way.

I like the background very much :)

(but it seems more detailed than the bird)

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/9/2010 05:47

 How could I not fav this?

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 8/9/2010 03:16

hooray, yus returns! :) not sure about the beak aa though (too fat in places, especially the curves) -- looks fine at 1:1 anyway!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/9/2010 02:34

Yus! Love the format. Always wanted to give it a go myself.

IMO there is one AA pixel missing on the nostril.

Chibi Robo: The character design is by Helm originally. Tho how he and I draw Yus birds is quite different. 

Chibi Robo (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/8/2010 20:28

Amazing color use, great backround and a wonderful character design.


ekobor (Level 4 Murderer) @ 8/8/2010 20:26
