You are totally blowing my mind, Ste! This is a remarkable re-work. ...and to think, I only saw the Biggles movie for the first time, a few months ago (it was great!). Splendid work, ol' chap! ;)

This one is great. I really love the biplanes and the vibe of the background. Something in this breathes 1991-ish games from Enigma Variations. Great improvement from the original, though there's something odd with the logo / character interaction.

I think this piccy at least deserves an 8. I gave it a 9!

The original was quite poor, but this one is a nice and genuine C64 GFX. I would vote 6.5/10 for it = definitely above-average, but due to the constraints of the rating system I voted a 7.
(a real 7/10 would be something "very good" by my scale, one notch even above this picture)

Wow! 10-12 hours! But then you get a really good product! With my music the 64 version takes much more time than the original! (I compose first on pc with Renoise which is than ported to the Roland Hermans player I use). So in Photoshop cs2 you have the 64 colour palette and pixel size? And yes good idea Slator! These pics deserve a game. Maybe STE should make pictures for Protovision games! Unfortunately not that much games come out but maybe in future? Interested STE?!

it's difficult to give a timeframe on this one, because the Biggles figure was mainly redone last year, i just didnt know what else to do with it. I picked it up again a few weeks ago and kept fiddling with it while i was doing "here be dragons" but in the last week everything seemed to fall into place. it has however been one of my longest ever projects simply because it had no real "goal" it just evolved.
usually i would say a project would take somewhere in the region of 10-12 hours overall.
as to the app, my choice is Photoshop cs2.

Really like this one! Great! Much better than the early version! Just curious: How long does it take to make such an enhancement and what drawing prg do you use? Compared to this Ratt's version looks pretty crappy!

Like the original you did more than this crappy new one...

.... no really, fantastic update dude. Love it! Ritch and full of nice details and so clean at the same time... the bottom is absolutely marvelous and all the love put into the whole image really shows!
