My first C64 multicolor piece. It uses 3 colors plus one background color (in this case light gray) per 8 x 8 pixel square. The pixel ratio of a C64 monitor isn't exactly 1:1, but I decided to worry about the color restrictions this time.

you know, i was never too sure of what it was either, to be honest.
i always thought it could either be a fly or like... a crack in the helmet (the way his head is kind of fat, and expanding)
either way, it's amazing, of course.

Is that a fly on his nose? It doesn't read very well (for me at least). Other than that it's a very cool picture!  Funny too.

Very nice and funny picture. Also very competent handling of the restrictions esp. given this is a first :)
