So, what are we using to make pics these days?

Howdy, everyone!

Let's say I am in a mood for getting my hands dirty with some pixels and I dont have anything handy to do so (my C64 is far, faaaar away from me in some forgotten, dusty closet)...

The question is, what tools are available out there for such suckerz as me? Ideally running on Mac OS X, but if not possible, could be for Windows 8 as well. If there's something that would work under some emulator, and could handle a mouse in sane way, that could do the job as well.

Oh, and so that the question wouldnt be too easy to answer, I'd love to be able to try out these new NUFLI (and other) wonders - but hey, HIRES/FLI should suffice ;)

Cheers, R.

Real pixel artists use graph paper and type in data statements!

What is this "type" you speak of? I enter my data statements in binary with a row of electrical on/off-switches.

after OS change from Win to Linux (ubuntu mate) I'd also appreciate some non-Win suggestions

Hi, I'm using a cool combo of Grafx 2 (mouse) then ppolizei for error checking.

I'm looking to move to Pixen though; as much as hours and hours of error checking made a man out of me, it sort of zaps the fun out of it (but maybe should be enforced as a kind of discipline for the uninitiated :P)
