Artworks - Concept Arts - My and yours.

  • The OP wrote artworks/concept arts so I'll take the risk of posting some of the Commodore 64 pictures I've done, they certainly aren't concept art but they might qualify as artworks. Some are in multicolour bitmap mode (160x200 pixels, 3 colours + screen colour for each 4x8 pixel block) and some are in singlecolour bitmap mode (320x200 pixels, 2 colours total for each 8x8 pixel block), a couple use sprite/raster timing trickery to put graphics in the borders and two of them use intense raster timing majic to squeeze more than 3 colours+background colour into each 4x8 block.

  • hot damn! these are skillful!

  • vanja you're a talent. Was it all done by mouse or tablet?

  • vanja those are awesome! Loving the old-school look to them.

  • Thank you guys :)

    Was it all done by mouse or tablet?

    Most of those were done with a mouse, and some were actually done with the keyboard.

    The C64 paint program I used from 1992-2006 had keyboard control for drawing. I used the cursor keys to move around on the screen and 1, 2, 3, 4 to set different coloured pixels. Control + 1-8 and the Commodore key + 1-8 were used to copy colours from the palette (16 glorious colours predefined by the designers of the graphic chip) to the 4x8 pixel block I was working on. If you think this sounds bad, also bear in mind that the C64 only has two cursor keys, one for up/down and one for left/right, so you have to press shift+down to get up.

    This picture was the last one I did in that program, using the keyboard:

    The program I used before this (from the 1980s until 1992) had joystick control, which was far worse.

  • I really like your art style, Vanja. Great work!

    SoldJahBoy? You... you definitely have skill. We would have to be really jaded not to...

    But...

    Ummmm....

  • Here are a couple Amiga (remember those?) pictures I did...and one I never finished:

    ^ 32 colours

    ^ this has been rotting on my harddrive for about 12 years now

  • that stuff looks impressive, it looks way better than any of my drawings even though you used a keyboard

    this last one is an early mock-up for a project I've been working on for almost 2 years now

    the plane and icons were the only thing in the original screenshot. I painted over the rest to get an idea of how it would look in a final version.

  • Those are some great contributions guys. I think Vanja kinda stole the show haha, that's some sweet old-school pixel art.

    Also, Davioware those concepts are looking fantastic mate.

    And yes... most of the old-timers here know what to expect of my artwork... sorry if you were offended, embarrassed, shocked and or appalled. I have far worse (explicit) though. At least those ones have clothing on.

    The Drafling, a character from Everquest lore. He doesn't appear as an NPC in the games, but is mentioned in many EQ2 stories and quests: "Looking just like a halfling, the man had lizard scales covering his entire body, and two small little horns sprouting from the top of his head. He was chewing on a small wooden stick, and would puff smoke between words."

  • That's pretty good, I like how you managed to get that Everquest feel to it.

    I'm not much for character artwork, but here's one of me "monitoring" this thread.
