A couple of old captures we used to communicate:

May 4th, 2011, first sketches (the guitar thing had various version en ended up very simple, without any mechanical part; the other instrument almost didn't change at all):

December 30th, working on text rendering, most shapes are still very rough, most instruments are still missing (the ribbon shape is a proof of concept for the then future train rail):

sensenstahl, it's really impressive before/after, what things have you done to get there?

I think it's actually maytz's answer you're looking for. Also - it seems the before-after order is somewhat screwed ;)

Punqtured, you are right, this "name at the bottom" keeps getting me confused.

I'm especially impressed by what Ferris brings to the table here.

As soon as I release my next 64k, there'll be tons of work in progress images ;) I was just about to spoil everything.

@TLM: what I did? ...I punished the coders :) I whipped them WITH the carrot!

@PunkTun: Theres is no order, only some prototype routines send my way. Usually comes with a lot of restrictions like, "you can't use more than 16 colors..." "you can't have glow..." "you can't actually have anything... but please make it look interesting" :)

Here the stages for the logo in ISO. The VCS has a resolution of 40 lores single colors pixels per line. In addition there are some sprite like objects which bring a total of 2x(8+1) "hires" pixel in two more colors. No DMA, everything done with CPU, timing, splits and limited movement of the objects. Took 6 weeks for everything to complete.

Stage 1: Paper

BB Image

Stage 2: GrafX2 design of object splits and raster splits

BB Image

Stage 3: GrafX2 layout for full screen

BB Image

Stage 4: Tranferring every pixel into code for combination of pixels, object and splits

BB Image

Stage 5: Final VCS result

BB Image

Now you get an idea what "painting" means on VCS: 470 Lines of code :-)
