Did anybody check if perhaps the use of these colours would be possible with ECM?
With a PETSCII based charset, having only the chars that have been used from both lower and upper case, I say it'd be close enough...
(just trying to save your ass, here, Sander ;-) )

ok, that's enough! ;)
i've failed, better luck next time..

Oh, i just noticed you're using the upper- and lowercase charset at the same time (e.g. lowercase small v, uppercase shift-M / char!)... That'll be another problem to adress when converting to actual PETSCII!...

@SanderFocus: This picture can't be converted to text mode, since you're using multiple background colors. It's still a wonderful picture though.

Very nice work Sander. I have seen many petscii works in my time and this one is ranking quite highly, well done! The execution of the motive was very well made. Feel lucky I don't have multiple boards I need graphics for, you would be on my list! </nag> :D

@Urban Space Cowboy: Sprites were only used for the borders. Otherwise it's PETSCII (see first comment).

@Deekay: Damnit, you should've given me the tool ;) It would've saved me many hours.

Very very nice, Sander! ;-)... Awesome idea, great execution, nice styling bit with the background and yay for border sprites! Though I have to say I've seen Bitbreaker's PETSCII converter deliver rather similar results - after all finding the most suitable char for any given block IS pretty much ideal computer work! (see also aalib and libcaca! <:-) Great that you did not only Tramiel and Jobs, but Dennis Ritchie, too! Paying him the respect he so rightfully deserves...
