For some reason I like the 64-version better than the original. Guess I might be too much of a pixelhead :P

It would be nice with more original graphics in this competition. It's one thing to be inspired, another thing to copy. It looks nice, though...

Many refreshingly "un-C64-ish" graphics in this compo. This is my personal number one.

WOW! The pic and the TRONish style are amazing. But even more cool is that charset mode / editor you wrote for it. Keep it up!

My personal favourite, even with the new entries by Yazoo and Twoflower (which are completely awesome aswell). This one just kicks ass. It is great to have Digger back, and even better his gfx are awesome! Well done sir!

Thanks for all the comments - it was quite challenging to do it using chars (and limited palette). I've ended up coding my own editor – actually, it's available online (and soon as open source with the .asm for the viewer)

Let me know what you think.

Wile Coyote: We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one, it looks great to me as it is.

The large purple chunk looks fine.
The vertical cyan meets green in an abrupt fashion at tip of hair is the area I refer to.
A couple of well place sprites would have worked wonders.

UPDATE: Having seen the source image behind Monroe 6569 has altered my original views. While Digger’s take on the original is proportionally accurate, he has failed somewhat in recreating the sparkle present on Monroe 3000 / Noeeko. The sparkle really makes the original what it is.

Great use of char mode.

Wile Coyote: Large chunk of cyan? I don't see much cyan except a tiny bit at the tip of the hair? Did you mean the chunk of purple?

charmode gfx rulez... good job with this! maybe it is a bit too close to the original to be something special gfx-wise (i miss a little own creativity), but still the result looks really nice.

Nice piece - the original was made by the Polak 'Michal Sycz' (aka Noeeko) and is entitled, Monroe 3000. Nice work for chars!

The face looks great, as does the ear ring. There's something about the hair that bothers me, it might the large chuck of cyan.
Also, I see a parrot wedged in the front of someone's face :)

If I was asked to pick a winner from this 2 screen compo, Monroe 6569 would be 2nd to Cargo.
