ZX-Spectrum gallery 1997-2003 by gas13 ZX-Spectrum gallery 1997-2003 by gas13
EDIT: Now you can download this artworks to your mobile at [link]

Some people were asking why they can't find artworks from my site here in dA gallery. It looks like I found a good solution to post them all with not flooding my devwatch friends with 39D ;)

I was pixeling ZX-Spectrum artworks since 1997. Most of this artworks were taking part in demoscene competitions. It was really great to be a part of ZX-Spectrum demoscene. But I think it's time to turn the page.

Joining mobile game market and learning not that limited styles of pixelart I've decided to set some bold DOT: . :)

All this artworks were made using Art Studio or Burial GFX Editor, some recent artworks made with Photoshop. All this artworks made with EGA pallete (16 colors). Every 8x8 pixels cell have only 2 colors.

Sorted in order of appearence. Newer is higher.

Description for every single artwirk could be found here: [link]

Thanks for looking :hug:

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-04-26
With enough trend and style to keep the women and children (and the men as well, in some cases!) locked up at night, ZX-Spectrum gallery 1997-2003 by *gas13 surely is a feast for eyes to stuff themselves on. Check this engaging collection of portraits and scenes and works in the most pixeled of nature! ( Featured by halfliquid )

Wow, these are all fantastic. I honestly don't know where

"Winter'97-98 in Elizavetinskaya" reminds me of a XIXth century woodcut for some reason...

Amazing, almost incredible when you know ZX screen restrictions.
In Spin Emulator now you can see the screens in 15 different colours: [link]

Impressive, for only two colours per character, I came from the Commodore side of things <gets beaten back by swarms of ZX zealots> where I had to work with four colours per character with three preset and only one colour that you could change each character. Man some people clocked out some mad work with such limitations. I didn't even know the ZX was capable of such pictures - great job!

If you give people a bottleneck, they'll come from miles around to see what they can fit through it. All the best computers have that sweet balance between power and limitations and people manage to eek incredible things from them. I've seen a C64 do castle wolfenstein!

nice, I was showing a friend some of these from your site (at school, in the library) one day, but there wasn't enough time to go through too many, but now they're all here :nod:

Anyway, just as great this time around as they were last time I saw them =D

holy shit dude - i used to draw pics in clut modes on amiga - i even had plans to join the amiga demoscene but somehow never got round to it...

your stuff rocks!!! i love graphisc with limitations, like lo-res 256 cols...

do you know a decent program for pixelling in pallette modes for pc/win? like deluxe paint for amiga? damn, i love the look of hand made antialiasing in the morning;)

oh, almost forgot: fav!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
