Tandy by JohnSu Tandy by JohnSu
A misnomer, really, since this 2-bit pallete was found on the CGA and not quite so much on the Tandy. But Tandy just so happens to be a lady name, so I stuck with it. Tandy is an original character I made on whim.

Anyhow, this will be one of my duller deviations. Sorry folks. Made this mostly for nostalgia; remembering those ugly old games I used to play is soothing in its own sick way. Ah~

#000000
#55FFFF
#FF5555
#FFFFFF

Made in Paint

She looks pretty good, actually. the lines are pretty good.
There are more things I'd complement, but I don't know how to word them.

Sweet! I love old computers. How do you make old-style limited-palette sprites?

I dunno... sometimes I think being forced down to a pixel-by-pixel level forces you to be more careful about where you do place your... dots.

Like, I admire Paul Robertson's animations partly because his designs are very solid, and that depends a lot on the restrictions of the medium he chooses to play with.

She's actually supposed to have silver-white hair, but it turned out looking better lined with the red.

Ooooo oldschool. I wish the games I'd played back then (and not-so-back-then) had characters like this. :o Hmm... *suddenly has the urge to play Kings Quest III again* :giggle:
