When you click the link on the csdb frontpage, see the image and your first thought is "that's some party banner photo, what upcoming event is that?" and need a second to recognize it's bloody MC... this deserves a straight 10!!! sad that I can't raise up to 12 here ;-) *Masterpiece*

Edit: An CJ's saturated version makes it Amiga :-D

Just want to say... the image is insane cool... as always I would almost say to JonEgg... I only ment the comment about them colours because you are on another level and I suspected maybe you did not hold real hardware to test on... I also use that low color combos, but sometimes I have gotten surprises from that... howerev it works in yours... it is just subtile in a small part anyway... love the image!

Great usage of texture patterns as usual also... you are very very great at this. I have been said to be quick at gfx, but you are lightning fast... your way must be super insane effective... cudos to you.

As for the dark blue, it always does come up a bit brighter when people run at a high saturation, but I wouldn't sweat it. Personally I quite like the glow it gives this one.

Here's what the pic looks like if I run it through my vic2 composite output simulator, with a fairly maxed out saturation on the composite to rgb leg:

Another nice one from JonEgg... I looked at it on a C64+1084S monitor and couldn't see a big problem with the colour combos (brown/blue) but this might be because the colour is at the edge of the explosion where it doesn't matter that much.

It could be the image looks a bit better with a low/mid saturation instead of high/max saturation.

Great! I like the 80s-style plain MC coarseness while the dithering looks quite modern. Simultaneously feels like a loading pic from back then and not. :)

Thanks for all the kind comments!

@PAL - Cheers for the advice. I'd be grateful if someone could tell me how the red-brown-blue gradient looks on a real 64 (as I don't have one). It's not too late to adjust the colours for the release of the game.

Maybe I could replace the blue with dark grey?

Really amazing... Just wow...
JonEgg: I did do some images with dark blue, dark brown, dark red and then up... what I found was that this looks often very strange on the real hardware, it outlevel itselfs and actually the dark blue often eat in on them others like contrasty way... I am just saying so because I really love how it is done but maybe it will look a bit like a colorbanding on the real hardware... You are at a level and so super so hope it is ok for me to write this to you without it beeing scene wars and hell on earth ;-)

Fantastic image, absolutely super!
