I had over the last few days a chitchat with a fellow deviant about his deviantion which required him to do work manually without fancy tools, like it used to be in the old days when gfx on the computer was still pixeled by hand.We talked about that and I made a comment about my Friend Dream Design who was one of the 5 first SAC Members when we founded the Group back in December 1994. We was still using his Amiga 500 for his pixel art. He was more restricted that we were on the PC. He had to work with only 32 colors and a resolution of 320×256 (PC VGA 320×200 256 Colors).I still have his stuff on my computer and decided to show some of his best work, remember max. 32 colors, pixeled. No Filters, so Special brushes, no digital camera, no scanners, no graphic tablet (he used the mouse).Dream Design made the top 10 best pixel artists on the Amiga 500 at some point. There were a lot more and better artists on the Amiga than on the PC at the time, I just say J.O.E. , Peachy and Angeldawn. He teached me some lessons what I really appreciated. DD was flat out what you call a Genius. He understood perspective, lighting and shading like nobody else I ever met. Its funny how I met him.

The Blog continues to use black as the general background. The MS DOS background was black and ASCII’s look best with white font on dark background which made me pick the template with the black background in the first place. I did not want to change anything about that concept, because I liked at back then and I still like it today.In incorporated some “fake” and “real” Block ANSI elements into the design. I will probably continue doing some fine tuning over the next months for those elements, especially the text borders. Over all does my Blog now look much better and you can tell, that it is primarily about me, Roy/SAC and what I did and do using that nick name, ASCII and ANSI Text Art and some Pixel VGA Art.Please come and have a look for yourself and tell me what you think about it. If you have any ideas, generic or specific or even criticism, do not hesitate and just add a comment to this post. You can do so anonymously, if you[…]
