i just updated the production notes and took a photo (with the camera of my mobile) of the original picture postcard that inspired me to do this pic: http://www.hergenoltmann.de/c64/csdb/egypt_original.png

ah yeah "misr" is a nickname I think for egypt. ok I see that you want "s'ad" not 'tah' on the second letter :) they are similar.

thanx again for the comments, guys!
@blackdroid: hmmm... i wanted to write 'Misr' which is AFAIK the arabic name for egypt (correct me if I'm wrong!). But my spelling might be wrong as I'm not really good in writing Arabic. ;)

Hello Higgie,
there is nothing wrong with the pixelling.
It´s probably the picture that got you a 3.
Doesn´t have to mean anything.
Lots of downvoting going on anyway..

Oswald gives some good advise,but keep doing your own thing.

I think you did more than well, so just keep on with the pixelling and don't let a low vote discourage you!

higgie, well I'm not a graphician, but they tell me they learn the most from eachother. You should check many many pics, very carefully to learn how others mix colors do dithering, etc.

Thanx for your comments and votes. But please give me a hint what I could improve when voting a '3'. It would really help me alot as I haven't done anything between 1993 and 2006. And the taste and techniques did change a little in that time. And I'm willing to learn and improve my style.

Funny, when I look at the figure I get an impression of sand. Maybe even a stronger one than when I look at the sand.

Like the colors, like the motive. This would have fitted nicely in our x-masdemo Candy, released a couple of years ago.
