The blue shadow on the head versus the black shadow of the hat was a conscious decision. The 160x200 resolution with 2:1 pixels and use of 16 or less colours from Amstrad CPC palette are the only Mode 0 restrictions I am aware of. An Amstrad enthusiast contacted me and was able to get the image running on an emulator which is pretty cool. Glad you liked it.

the lighter blue shadows on his head vs. the hat is a nice touch, unless I'm ignorant and that's just a palette restriction thing

Really well done given the limitations!

Thanks Wayuki! It was a fun challenge. I'm looking forward to doing more wide pixel pieces in the future.

Very fun caricature!

Thanks vrine! It is certainly an improvement on my Tony Abbott piece, but I would have to say Shm31 and Jinn are the caricature masters!

You are the caricature master Steve!
