The Art of James D. Sachs

Posted by Beamer

A game designer and programmer, James D. Sachs created his art using his Amiga, usually at lowest resolution (320×200). Amazing stuff. Makes me feel like I’m playing EcoQuest again.

Thanks for the extra links Simon. I can’t imagine how long some of those must have took to make!

It’s slightly faster than it used to be as PC pixel art applications mean people can paint in the C64 restrictions using a Wacom tablet (or at least a decent mouse!). Back in the day, most people created graphics with a joystick! It still ultimately comes down to setting individual pixels though! The C64 also has much tighter restrictions than an Amiga and only 16 colours to pick from.
