Another year, another Amiga Art Contest! (Thanks Doug and Vicky!) It was a big success so congrats to everyone who took part, and the winners.
Again I used my EHB palette as a base, and I’m getting a little bit better at documenting my process too!
I drew all three of these in PPaint using a Wacom Ultrapad serial graphics tablet plugged into my A1200. The first two started in EHB lowres (though could easily be reduced down to <32 in the first pic’s case and <16 in the second! The third is EHB High Res Interlaced, ad uses much of the 64 colours!
IFF versions of these images available here.

Amiga Art 2020
I drew a lot more Amiga art last year. I’ve been concentrating my energy on CMO:Hex Night in ’21..
Another type of art I’ve drawn on the Amiga is the Workbench/AmigaOS Classic patterns (wallpapers, desktop backgrounds.. Whatever you want to call them!) of CMO characters. Specifically the Hi-res variants with the half-width pixels were something it made sense to draw at the Amiga in PPaint. Here they are..
And more besides…
A lot of the art I’ve been doing of late has been targeting the Amiga and not drawn 100% on the platform itself. Some of the files I move back and forth between PPaint on the Amiga and Pixaki (iPad), Aseprite (Win, Mac) so I don’t feel like I can put them on this gallery page. All the graphics I’ve drawn for my Amiga games pass through the Amiga and sometimes get tweaks there..
