@cArrion: +1

I'm thinking of shape masks to a full screen dithering pattern done with an adjustment layer, right? :)

I think of creating a photoshop .PSD template for c64 pixeling and publishing it in a few days/weeks for people to try it. But here, what Leon did is totaly different than my technique. PS is incredible tool, even for us C64 demoscene artists and I wonder what other usecases we can find with this tool to do scene gfx. TBH what I do for some weeks now is experimenting with PS for 8bit (C64, C+4, A8bit) graphics. To be unveild soon.

The .psd file is enlightening.
Do you use any particular plugins to ease with the C64 style of painting, or do you just have custom brushes etc?

I'm not familiar with draz-paint, I'll look into it.

WOW!. just chekced the PSD file.
looking at it I can tell we have totaly different approaches to this technique.
Actually my first thought was that you used Timanthes, because I get simillar results as your clouds when using timanthes replacement tool on the chessboard'ed dithered area. but since I switched to photoshop too I have to rething my workflow.
keep posting new images ;)

carrion: first step - photo-shop (clouds layers, dither-clouds layers etc., second step: vice+draz-paint
check the .psd file,
