Some Commodore 64 pixel and PETSCII graphics I did for fun for our World Wide Zoo -event held 25th of September – an online C64 party with playful competitions. Just FYI, C64 has a fixed palette of 16 colours that you can’t change. PETSCII is a text graphic mode using 255 fixed charset with one global colour and one colour per 8×8 px character. Added animations so you can see how these were made, pixel by pixel or char by char. I’ve done stuff for C64 since 10 years old as a hobby. While in the past these were done on the real breadbox with a joystick (and one undo), these days I’m using mostly PhotoShop, a cross-platform tool Multipaint or Marq’s PETSCII editor. Zooparty is an association we’re running to support C64 demoscene in Finland and internationally. We’re arranging events and publishing SID music and printed stuff.
