veto's main strength is that he avoids dithering but at the same time he gives every object strong sense of texture thus colour areas are not plain :) look at the right bottom for example :)

You are right, Jammer, the colors used on the right are my favorite part!

btw., the right side gives me almost amiga'ish feel. reminds me the technique from 'lemmings 2: the tribes' intro or 'lure of the temptress' ;)

It is just a matter of personal tradition. Initially the biggest influence on this style were the works of Michael Kosaka (e.g. Skate or Die, Budokan or Sentinel Worlds). I was totally impressed how good his gfx look even with very limited dithering. I tried the same way and decided to abandon dithering at all. That was before my first public release - about 1988/89. Right from the start the reactions were controversial but IMHO it was a good decision.

No way to hide your roots :)
This absolutely has the spirit of a game.
I also like the look the boy throws at his father.
Nice and looks alive!

@Jammer: Read this Portrait for more info. I think Veto has always been unique. There's a great deal of warmth, both visually and emotionally in this piece. Excellent work!

lack of dithering really disturbs me and gives me a felling of watching a convert. similar impression when i saw your portrait for the first time.

Thanks for all comments. I am really pleased and also surprised. In fact the picture was not intended to be some kind of game-intro-picture. Cannot hide my roots I suppose...

jesus... it's multicolour! even if i dont like the motive so much either, this still kicks serious asses.
User Comment
Submitted by Archmage on 27 October 2008
Not my favourite type of motive, but this is still very good use of the multicolour mode.

User Comment

Looks to me like an intro-picture to a full-price game many years back... and this is meant in the most positive way possible.

Very nice oldskool piccy. Looks like it was made for a sequel back in the 80's. (If the game hade this kind of graphics I'm sure I'd played it thru) =D
