Another picture made for the mighty Thomson TO8! :) For added authenticity I even chose a retro theme for inspiration - the colourful science-fiction from the 70's and early 80's (suggested soundtrack:

Unlike last time, I went for the "multicolor" mode that's lower resolution but doesn't have any block restriction. This time the palette used should also be correct, taking into account the weird gamma of the Thomson palette : very few dark tints and too many near-identical bright ones.

160x200 "wide pixel", 16 colours

 It's so crisp and colorful, I really like it. :)

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 11/20/2013 14:08

 Indeed, our 2 images have quite a similar vibe 

Yours is a lot more detailed and I like the feeling of overall remoteness and calmness. The dog is a really nice touch too. Great work 

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 11/20/2013 14:01

 Hehe, I tried a few designs for the building and I think this one work quite well so the top doesn't seem out of place even if you don't know the logo

 Thanks for the great comments!

 Very impressive, it reminds me of my own last piece..

Of course, I think your "Planete Thomson" is much cleaner looking. The city scape is so crisp.. I really really like this. Also the colors are just insane, I'd use this palette in the future.

Great! Beautiful colors and nice atmosphere!

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 11/19/2013 17:34

Nice touch with the logo ;)

 I think the moon could use some de-dithering. Besides that excellent peice!

helcril (Level 7 Colonel) @ 11/19/2013 15:48

 those colors and overall feeling are beautifull 

RetroStark (Level 1 Private) @ 11/19/2013 15:16

 I love the warm palette. I could see this being a cover to a game or something, but this is absolutely great. 

AlexHW (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/19/2013 14:23

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 11/19/2013 13:36
