YUS. Nice name. :D
Interesting progress animation. Cool to see it grow. Very nice Ptoing.
Man, I keep on seeing this style. I'm just confused on what's it for. Some kind of old screen resolution? Or some limitation?
Can somebody point me to a thread or give a small explanation.  :o
Thanks.

It's C64 multicolor limitations. The C64 is an old computer from the 80s. Great machine.
Here is some info about the mcol graphics mode.

Very impressive...

And the datas about the c64 graphic mode interesting, but I don't understand how you draw your art ?
You draw directly with a c64 or with a "normal" machine ?

It should be tricky...  :-\

ptoing has an old computer

na na na na na !!! na na!!

LOl just kidding. in fact I like how you bend the rules to take the most out of the hardware. I do like the colors, and dont see a problem with the pallet. makes it interesting in fact.

how many colors do you have? 16, 32, 64?
you put up some wiched stuff!!!

take care

Kaz
Image size doesn't matter! It's what you do with your pixels that counts!

Thanks for the replies.

jujucece: I draw the pics in Promotion on my PC, but i will definately try pixeling something on a real c64 when i get mine (it's still in Germany, but i am not).

Kazuya Mochu: I don't "bend" the rules. I just try to use them to their full potential. There are 16 fixed colours on the C64 all of which are in this picture.
