I used this cat's head as a schema, but ofcourse this is a hand-eye coordinated similar copy of the head. As wrote at bottom, i lost all the starting phases and other workstages with everything long time ago, because my hdd crashed. Only 1 prv. screenshot returned back to me, because sometimes i sent prv's to some friends. Then reconverted the remaining prv and started to work on it again and this unfinished picture was my result. For me, this is another proof of my observation/design skills. Btw, im working on my new picture and trying to be made even better piece than previous works, but this time i can show all the workstages from absolute zero if you not belive to me. Just wait for it!

not that I care _that_ much, but it just slightly distorted. Here: slight x-stretch and VERY slight rotation.
I.e. a second photo of that motive might be a perfect match right from the start:

Added a NUFLI version. Might need a few fixes, but looks really nice already. No time to PRG this now, start with SYS$3000/12288 (or load into the editor!)

Hoild, speaking bravely of a tool he has never seen. Sure, I guess photoshop would also be rather usable from the command-line.

Great stuff, one of AMN's best IMHO! But WHY the flickering? <:-) I know, we still haven't released the converter, mea maxima culpa, still found another bug in the pythonGUI today while showing it to Ragnarok, and we still need that Windows all-in-one EXE that does not require python from alih...
should i put this through it and add a NUFLI version?

Vwry good picture.

Don't forget the rule of those 136 colors which derives from the existing 16 if dithered as Crosshatched or Lined,
which then looks rather ok. At least to my own experience as a small thumb on the screen.
Though, the interlace is a bit tough as is with all horizontal lines of interleaved colors.
I'd guess on the real hardware and telly the thing works very well?!

And obviously enough on the real BIG THING ;D

AMN originally made this picture for last year's BP, but ran out of time. Then he had a harddrive crash last summer and lost all phases + data of this picture (and a lot more). He started again from a preview jpeg he sent in email to me (before the hard drive crash) which I converted back to C64 colors (but as you can imagine since it was an interlace picture sent in a lossy progrssive format a lot of info was lost) and all subsequent pixeling was based on that. That's why the early workstages are missing.

I planned to release this pic originally at BreakPoint 2009, but not finished till deadline. I sent screenshot from the last available workstage to some friend last year. Meanwhile my hdd crashed with everything, Eddie helped me to bring back 2 rough bmp somehow and i choosed a yellowish one to start the rework. I used Oswald's P1 to reconvert the raw bmp to drazlace, then continued in Clarence's Pixel Perfect. Ofcourse i don't have the time again to finish, but i decided to release it. :)

the result looks really great - respect! (but joe is right with the workstages)

Really great! The workstages seemed awkward though, like a colorised prefixed image.
