It remind me some of the 80's loading pics. Well done!

The recollection pic looks fantastic, but I'm not sure the hieroglyphs are directly comparable in the two pieces due to the size difference... (20-30 pixel vs 5-6)
I don't know what else can be done in such a small size...
(Again I'm not whining, or being defensive here, just discussing the topic at hand)

The dither/antialias here is definitely limited by my abilities in big part... I'll keep on learing, these are my first two released pics :)

@Viza: Unfinished for me is lack of dithering/anti-aliasing, it doesn’t take much time but helps a lot. For hieroglyphs check Mirage’s approach Recollection #2

Can I ask what parts make you feel that it is unfinished?
Thats a genuine technical question, not some whining or something. :) I don't really feel it unfinished, and want to learn :)
Is it the mummy's far limbs? Something other

Very nice!
I partially agree with the statement "unfinished" (maybe the mummy leg and arms towards the wall could be deeper brown, not reddish, or the adventurer's shoe could be different colot, but C64 palette limitiation, eh... Try the Plus/4! :-) ).
On the other hand I see some really nice shadow depth execution, especially the sunlight/shadow contrast on the wall.
A very good story can be read on the hieroglyph wall!

I like it dude! :D (Idea is cool, but execution is a bit "unfinished" imho) :)
