These are some awesome images. I got a good grade at O level art as well but my strength was in putting what I see down onto paper - not creating new things.

I wonder if would be 'polluting' the thread if someone did some utilising the new 4096 colour palette ULA?

I wasnt allowed to take GCSE art on account of being useless. My wife is very good with oils though, and my daughter is a dab hand with the pencil. Every time something gets posted to this thread I show it to them. My daughter is impressed and 'oo's at every picture, my wife just rolls her eyes.

Ah brings back memories of some of the first pictures you created, I think some of the original dither patterns work well in mode 2.

Do you think it's worth adding some of those patterns ART for windows?

We could try that Fourthstone.......although there are rather a lot of dithers already in Art 2...but having more means more shades available.
It is good to go back and finish a picture I tried first time.............I don't often finish stuff so I am trying to change that....
