to me totally enchanting what you did with a relatively plain and straight style and motive in terms of perspective illusion, indeed a worthy winner!

blame me for using pepto palette screenshot when adding this release, feel free to replace as long as you don't use spectrum neon palette

Great pic! Is this maybe already the first fan art for the upcoming Unknown Realm RPG? Doggy on this picture sure looks like a pug. :-)

sorry mighty Ilesj, I partially agree with you: I think the castle on real c64 is "a little" less muted compared to the screenshot, not "a lot" less, IMHO.
using many black pixels on the foreground character (a dude holding a ice hockey stick? lol) and zero black pixels on the rest of the screen did the trick.

By bringing in that atmospheric perspective you have made really good use of the limitations, hinting at so many more colors that wouldn't be picked up. really like. Inspired !

Too bad it's not C64 colors in the screen shot. The "shadow" colour in castle is actually dark blue, and it's a lot less muted on real C64.

using less contrast on the castle works so very great here to put it into deep background, giving the impression it is a bit foggy. Also crisp and clear approach, me likes.

that castle really looks like it is in background! 10/10 for me.
