@Hein: Well, I realized the picture with Pro Motion. It was completely painted on my pc using a 2-pixel-brush/matrix and a predefined C64-palette. Just aided by a photo of myself for the head (as a model, no scan) and ConGo for error detection related to fli. No other drafts had been used.
@all: Thanks for the nice comments. I enjoy reading so much positive response after such a long time offside the scene. You really make my day, dudes.

Very nice portrait, though I'm not too sure about the technique. Is this a scan of a real painting you did? Or is this classical etch-a-sketch c64-art? Nevertheless, the composition is excellent, so it'd be a killer if it'd be cleaned up and pixeled the way you did in the 90s. Hopefully next time.

i like the overall impression and the choice of colors. but why this must have been FLI??? i haven't digged too deep into this but i couldn't really find any area in this pic that would justify the use of FLI. ... as i'm a big fan of the multicolor standard i have to hold back my vote and rethink if i want to give points here. ;)

Nice to see new stuff from Veto. Beatiful background and a very good colorscheme. Though I'd prefer some well planned dithering + rastering + antialising instead of this sketchy look :)
