gpz: Yes, I've also noticed that in the _original_ poster it's an explosion (see my NUFLI one). However, we don't know if that was what Steve Wahid was actually trying to paint, and I've always seen it as sunset sky with wisps of clouds - which I even think works much better than the in-your-face explosion, btw.... It certainly looks more like that than like an explosion! ;-)

But I liked how Glenn turned explosion to sand in his image. Great. ;-)

Is certainly an improvement of the original!

Gah, to follow the general logic, I'd set the background color to orange instead of yellow, and that would have made wonders. The antialias is withdrawn to a witty non-dithering style, showing each none-shaved limdb under the skirt, one might wonder if the old 80:ies ideal was a oily bare shaven man or a hairy woman?

Rambo was the first game I ever picked up for the Commodore C64. Back in the day, the loading screen and music blew me away. Now in 2011 the original Loading pic hasn’t aged nearly as well as the music. It gives the impression Steve Wahid was given about one day to do his best, and come up with something. This new polished version works well. I have to admit, it exaggerates the shinny almost inflated balloon look of the original.

‘I have two entries coming, one of them handpixel work (improved original) but the other one of them is converted (though manually postprocessed and hand-layouted to match the original pic).’ - Deekay

That’s the one I want to see most, the ‘other one’.

Tribute to the original while trying hard to get it better looking. Respect. I like this one.
