Double Screen Compo Voting

Okay - all entries are in and it is time for voting.

Take your time and check the pictures properly. If you like to check it on a C64, I'd recommend to turn off the volume, because music tends to alter atmosphere. Now here come the rules:

---
CHOOSE 3 FAVORITES - NO MORE - NO LESS
SEND YOUR CHOICE VIA PM TO ENTHUSI OR ME
OR BY MAIL TO << COMPO[AT SPAMSUCKS]C64PIXELS[DOT]COM >>
PLEASE DO NOT FORGET YOUR HANDLE/GROUP OR NAME
---

Deadline for voting is June 7th 2011 (know it is a long term but c64pixels-visitors are watching random)

Good luck to all contestants !

I give up, if even multi-screen bitmap pictures are considered C64 Graphics (multi-colour) my arguments are pretty invalid.

Though using my definition of a gfx format (only code required to show the gfx, which includes moving gfx if larger picture, and having an editor for the format publicly available), I guess it's okay.

@Compyx: The double screen compo was supposed to be kind of a mini demo competition - not specifying double screen as graphics format.

Right, well, that's what you get from not reading all 190+ previous posts. :)

I'll shut up for now.

Yes another compo would be great, so long as it's not full of converted gfx again, otherwise we could have a converted pic compo? ;)

converted pic compo?

YES! It could be very interesting...

Do you remember the rules of the second double screen compo? Including the animated reference check (try mouse over the icons)?
http://compo.c64pixels.com/doublescreen/entries2013.html

Actually I found it pretty interesting and also entertaining to see how the artists worked or implemented the reference pictures.

Atm I am thinking about another competition, probably later this year. But no promises.

In theory it is (or it will be) possible to write i.e. a Phyton script (Mr. SID come on!) to convert any image into pixels using i.e. Hein or Carrion's pixelling style.

So I could create my original artwork in PhotoShop and then convert to C64 in a best possible way (preserving hand pixelling quality), it's even possible to breed a few styles (using genetic algorithms) to create hybrids (i.e. Mermaid/Archmage).

Sounds too scary? ;-)


Yeah, definately. I'd like to see you try! <:-) There's a reason why Mermaid, Carrion, Archmage, Joe, Ptoing, Mirage etc pictures look so good, and it's because they know things about pixelling you could never teach a program... A program will never actually "see" a picture, it does not know which detail is important and which is not, and it cannot place pixels just like someone doing it by hand. I know Lars has spent considerable time in Timanthes to "teach" it all his knowledge, and we've done a lot of that with Mufflon, too... But there's simply a limit to how far software "intelligence" can go... You could teach programs to simulate a certain dither style, but that's about it... And I'd like to see a program that emulates f.ex. Joe's crazy dithering experiments, that'll probably require a supercomputer! ;-)


6 years later and it's coming ;-P)
