Another C=64 mcol pic

This one was hastily made for Syntax 2014 compo, thus the mirroring and all. Still I picked a motif that would work well mirrored, and also added some differences here and there :)

mcol mode limitations: 16 fixed c64 colours, 2x1 pixel size, 4 cols per 8x8 block with one of the 4 being shared accross the entire image

@Mathias: Ah sorry I missed that completely, should really log in more often :P

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 10/7/2015 12:39

No! It'll reveal all the stolen art!

Ok, Mr. iLKke, specify a color for the frame to go on this print, please. Black?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/5/2015 16:35

I want to see a panoramic photo of your room :)

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 8/15/2015 19:18

 Otay let's see about some mounting now . . .

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 8/14/2015 11:36

I'm tryna print this, today.

brb . . .

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/10/2015 20:34

Yeah I generally think a passe-partout is a good framing practice :)

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/5/2015 13:14

Sup, Sventoing! I'm interested in making it work, yeah.

I wonder what iLKke would suggest doing.
If I laid it out so the image wasn't touching the extents of the canvas within the frame (which like you said would give it some nice room to breathe) I could put a small line of text below the image or something.

(here's the last PA I printed - pink frame! You can guess who created the image. Oh wait, her moniker is printed on the image; forgot.)

Mathias: How about scaling it up 3000% (on a 33.375 x 27.5 inches at 300dpi canvas) and making the bg black? On a real C64 there is always somewhat of a border. And it would give the image some space to breathe.

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 12/19/2014 11:44

Also, it's only 15 colours! Poor light green feels left out.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 12/1/2014 14:39

Whhhhaatatt's that pixel art, you want me to print you??

Whhhaattt, at like 33 3/8" X 27 1/2". Weellllllll I happen to have a frame maytchiong those dims, naow.



The frame in question would actually result in the red areas being cropped. Screw that.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 12/1/2014 14:37

YYYYYYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSSS iLKke C64 stufffffff!!!!7777777

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 11/30/2014 22:55

Always wonderful to see your work =)

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/27/2014 14:48

Nice one!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 11/26/2014 12:50

@tomic: no, it's not intended. also, didn't even know it was on artcity!

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 11/26/2014 05:37

Cool as cucumber. I can't say I see the monkey sitting on the robot when it's turned upside down though when flipped over.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/25/2014 14:24

Lovely! ;)

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/25/2014 12:54

nice work, mirror image works pretty well here

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/25/2014 06:21

oh golly a new ilkke piece

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 11/24/2014 22:54

yey, first piece in a year! here.
recently noted on artcity that, when you do the Baselitz and flip the pic by 180 degrees, you get a monkey sitting on a robot's shoulders. absolute genius if that was intended :)

submitted something to syntax as well, but the organisers messed it up :/

Goodlyay (Level 6 Centaur) @ 11/24/2014 20:37

I normally dislike the look of how wide the pixels are in these, but this looks really great!

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 11/24/2014 20:02

Nice feeling of depth in this one!
