C64 MCOL pic. Really happy with this one.
I should do more images with interaction / storytelling

you have such an excellent sense for funny, nuanced expressions. They remind me of mad magazine

One of my favs of your C64 work.

Though to be honest a lot of them are my favourites :D

Love the story telling and stellar pixelling.

Great piece.

Thanks everyone :)

Goodlyay: I use Cosmigo Promotion, which has functionality for various aspect ratios, like 2:1, 1:2, etc.
Grafx2 can do this as well, and Photoshop for example can do non integer aspects as well, which can be helpful for certain things.

Wow... Awesome!!! So colorful in so little colors. It makes me happy...

How is this made? Is there a mode in (whatever you're using) that automatically changes the grid to 2x1 pixels? Looks really great though. Love the texturing on the big guy's chin.

It's really neat how well C64 images based on gray backgrounds can work ...
