 Lost in this year's Assembly oldschool gfx compo rightly to pHASE 1's 'me and mah booty' pic. But didn't lose rightly to BOOBS and HASSELHOFF. Oh well.

For those not understanding what they're looking at. This is a c64 piece. The c64 is an old computer. The pixels are double-wide, the 16 colour palette is given by the machine, I didn't make it. every 8x8 tile ( well.. 4x8 ) has 3 colours max from this palette, with another universal colour being a wildcard. The universal colour here is the deep green.  This mode is called multicolour mode. It's reasonably challenging to make art like this.

Reasonably challenging to create art like this but you do it magnificently. Love the contrast of colours of the scene. I would definitely frame this and have it on my wall.

Reminds me of Spacequest

it's not the amiga palette. It's the c64 palette. And thanks, wycat, it's more like a Flashback landscape, but BaSS and Flashback aren't very different in the aesthetics. Gibbons is a great artist, but Delphine wins, though.

OOooohhh, crazyyy old school. Where do you get the colours from for the amiga pallete?
