Hi everyone, I'm back after a hiatus of almost 2 years
This time I did a picture matching the Thomson TO8 specs (early 90's 8 bit computer from France):
- 16 colours chosen from a 4096 colour palette
- Only 2 colours per 8x1 block
The block limitation makes it really hard to have proper anti-aliasing on the edges or any colourful fine detail, but being able to chose the palette is a massive plus compared to most other 8 bit machines.
The picture was done initially for a demo targetting the earlier Thomson MO5 model, where the palette is fixed and the colours not particularly well chosen. The version here, with a custom palette, is a big improvement.
You can check the demo there:
