Poll

Are you familiar with demoscene artwork and if so does it influence you?

Demo-what??!?
I have seen some stuff people have posted here, but that's it.
I know it, but it does not really float my boat, i'd rather do sprites.
I know and like it, but never attempted anything like it.
I know it and I try to use demoscene stylings in my work.
I know it and I aspire to make big pictures like Amiga 500 stuff for example.
I am in the Demoscene.
I used to be in the Scene, but not anymore.

I've been watching demos since 1994, and I'm active in the scene since 1999, went to my first demoparty in 2000. Not that active anymore recently though, I just don't have the time for all the things I'd like to do.

Following the scene a bit since around 1998-1999, and became active in the c64 scene 2005 :B

Eh, I know what it is, and I've seen some of it around. It'd be nice to try the style, but I couldn't pull it off as good as I'd like, and... I'd rather do sprites!

Demoscene stuff always feels too distant to me. I know what it is, and I can appreciate the work that goes into it, but it's not something I'd like to try.

I feel like a total ditz asking this...

Um, what is demoscene?

Is it basicly doing artistic graphic designs with pixels? Like, just designs, not people and landscapes and stuff?

way back when, there was this piece of hardware called the amiga. people would do " demos" on it, using code and images to make interesting little things that basically tried to go beyond the limitations of the machine( am i correct) demoscene artwork is the images used in these demos.

Mildly entertaining (at least for me) read.

(is there an echo around here?) :S

Yes... and Yes.

Hey - Ryumaru - don't take this the wrong way dude - but It makes me laff the way you describe the demoscene with the word 'basically' in that it wasn't that in the slightest - in fact - it was a great deal of hard work... but I know what you mean - you're absolutely correct though... and yes it does go beyond the amiga... the c-64 was a big demoscener machine... it may go back beyond that too - but that's out of the limits of my knowledge...

Well nowadays there is a bigger or smaller scene for pretty much everything you can code for :D

The biggest being the PC scene atm, but the C64, Amiga, Atari ST/Falcon, Spectrum ZX scene is still alive as well. There even is a tiny Oric scene and people do stuff on consoles as well. There are demos for Ipod, Cellphones and some Calculators even. If it's a challenge to get something out of a machine some demoscener will code for it :)
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
