I totally agree with Frantic: the somewhat reverse direction either makes this work timeless and valuable. I can't emphasize enough how I like this style. 10/10

I love minimalistic GFX, and this is a nice motif. However, the dithering as it is is too rough for me. I realize it is HIRES and all, but still I would like to see it redone in NUFLI, IFLI, or even interlaced HIRES, with a finer dithering and better detailed "Z axis" effect on the crossing strands.

EDIT: Just as an extra note, it looks very much like a well-made speccy GFX, and from me that should be taken as a compliment. I like well-made speccy GFX... ..but the C64 can do even better. \;]>

@Deadbone: Check FunkPaint 0.39d!

What I like in particular about this picture is that it is not the result of an obsession of doing something that is difficult to realize on a C64 due to lack of colors etc, but is instead simply focused on doing something that looks nice by means of form/geometry etc. Relieving, sort of.

Thanks, all. @Jazzcat: that's a really good idea and I'll have to see if I can get the guys to implement it for a similar picture in a future release. @enthusi: thanks, fixed!

Very nicely styled image. Would definately improve even more the impact of the design if made animated by code. I love good use of hires colour, i'd love to try it myself sometime. Who can reccomend a good simple hires art program on real hardware for me?

Very nice! Good use of hires. I agree with Jazzcat about adding code to it. Some colorscrolling or animation should add wonders.

Nice. I would like to see this in a demo effect (loader) so that the strands are being woven in real-time.
