Since I already got people questioning my skills, let me make clear what help Bokanoid exactly gave me for converting the picture.

I drew this all on my iPad using C64 Paint. The app's main and *only* good point, is that it allows me to sketch on an iPad using the C64 pixel sizes and a rather distant cousin of the C64 palette.

The app has barely any functionality beyond that, since the export exists of making a png of the picture and that's about it.

Bokanoid helped me convert the picture into proper C64 palette using Photoshop, saving me the hassle I had with Nautilus of having to manually copy each pixel into ProjectOne by looking at my picture in zoom mode on my iPad. You can imagine I would not have made the deadline that way...

As for the picture itself, I used 3 main references: the face, the bird's stance and the bird's color pattern:




Besides these, I used a heap of other sources with pictures of tribal tattoos and bird anatomy. Because I experimented with flowers, branches and about 7 other birds, I looked at pictures for these as well.

I copied the face by looking at it and redrawing it on my iPad manually. No computer-import was used. I then continued with the tattoos, lighting, the tattoo animals on the right, lots of dithering and redrawing of the tattoos and finally the left, which took me the longest. I used several parrots, finches and even a cookaburra before ending up with this yellow-breasted musk parrot.

Oh, and before you decide, check out the gif, which has plenty of work stages.
