ptoing: What, you set every pixel by hand and then you're not supposed to care about huge 8x8 blocks and artefacts? 8) That's a bit of a contradiction, wouldn't you say?
I know there are c64-gfxians who TRULY don't care about artefacts. But they don't care about misplaced pixels either, though! 8) Their style is completely different to yours, and quite often I don't like it! ;-D

DeeKay: I dunno, I like it how it is. I think it helps the retarded looking character in looking even more retarded. I like the odd artefact here and there and don't really see the need to hide restrictions like your life depends on it :)

A great picture ruined by blocky coloring. One may call it another Ptoing style experiment, yes, but sorry, for my eyes that's as much of a "style experiment" as writing random numbers into SID-registers is a style experiment to a musician! ;-)
It just hurts, i can't help it! <:-)
Calling (M)UFLI to the rescue! 8) Or just make it plain 2color hires, would still look better...
Now i just need to decipher the writing...

It does look like a storybook come to life on C64. I enjoyed the use of background against foreground. The Main character really stands out because of this. The cat is nice and just as demented as the main character. :)

nicely done as always! I don't think the artefacts are a problem, they fit in nicely with the slightly deformed/demented look of the doll.

ptoing is a strong breath of fresh air among all the graphicians, his style is a bit somewhere nearby mermaid but ptoing's works are more original speaking of technique. keep going man, i really support your work :)

It feels so good to see such an abuse of color blocks -- keep it up my dear deviant artist!

man what another great picture again!
I am awaiting a demo with graphics from ptoing only. any chance for that?

@wec: MRT told me the exact same thing via PM and I am totally aware of this, but I have to say that i quite like characterclashes every now and then. Without the blocky nature of hires I would have never arrived at the style I used for Yus Chunk for example. Embracing restrictions without hiding them every once in a while is very nice.

Haha, great one Ptoing! :D The way you have used the 2col/char limit gives it a special flavour.

I realy love the background and the style of this image! It reminds me of those old '50 years books, which tell a story accompanied by loads of images (some of the first comic books?), but with that wicked Ptoing twist!
