Dpainter's Deluxe Paint Gallery

It's true, I did buy Deluxe Paint and Deluxe Paint II and I used them. Here are some very old pictures I drew on my Amiga.

This one I drew for a Christmas graphics contest at my local Amiga users group. I placed 2nd. The first place winner drew some really elaborate fonts. In .IFF form, the snow on the little monitor cycled.

This one was more an exercise in drawing very small, but as most of us know, pixels blend better on an older monitor.

This one shows just how serious I was about making a Deluxe Paint fonts disk that would make me a small fortune. I never made the disk after realizing that fonts disks don't make fortunes. (Side note: I once met "KARA" of Kara Fonts fame and discovered that she is actually a he, and I mean make-up, dress and all.)

"Homeless for the Holidays" which I drew rather quickly using the "squiggly-fill" tool or whatever it is called in Deluxe Paint. Notice the date: 1989.

Forgive me if this one is way too large, but this was my vision of Workbench 3.0 during the 1.3 days. I was going to send this to the JumpDisk magazine but I think they went under by then.

Believe it or not, I drew this Workbench prompt by hand from looking at a photo! This was before any tool existed, that I knew about, which could rip the image from memory.

If you have the June 1988 issue of Commodore magazine, you can find this picture on page 71. I was one of the runners-up and won $100, which I think I spent on games. (Original image was 320x400)

A very enthusiastic lawyer and "game developer" convinced me to join up with him to do the graphics for what was going to make us rich -- a virtual online community where users walked about a town. I think it really was a great idea, just too ambitious for the existing technology. I worked my little tail off, photographing buildings and drawing detailed tiles and panoramas. I didn't earn a cent. The programmers got scared off and I learned an important lesson: Get as much money as you can up front.

DAMN, dude! Excellent stuff! Now I know who to call when I need gfx work (my old artist, The Tapeworm, has temporarily disappeared...I may post some of his work soon, though).

If you have more, by all means post them. Were any of these spread on BBS's back in the old days? My guess is no, or I would already have them...

Great job, DPainter! You must be the Deluxe Paint Master by the looks of it. You've played around with all the Deluxe Paints?

Your prediction of Workbench 3.0 looks so treeeemendously COOL, man! I wonder why Amiga never noticed your work though? They could've made WB3.0 into something like that!

Cool

Hey, thanks for all the compliments! Wish I could say I did this game and that game, but the only thing I worked on was the Disney Animation Studio (splash screen and icons). There was a CDTV demo I worked on but I don't know if that saw the light. It featured a kid walking through a museum, and he had a remote control that brought art objects to life. Here's a Paradox logo I drew back when I fancied I could be a scene artist:

dpaint - your vision of Workbench 3.0, had way too much STYLE for commodore... :-)

It took me a very long time, because I was always struggling to make pixels do what I wanted them to do in just 32 colors.

I think I recall Jim Sachs saying once that it took him about 24 hours to draw one of his masterpieces. I'm sure it took me at least that long, and I have very few completed pictures to show for it.

Too bad you didn't save yours! I transferred mine to PC back in 1992, otherwise I would have lost my pics too.

Yeah, I always liked those crisp and clean GUIs that many Amiga programs had, not to mention the slick and colorful copiers like X-Copy.

Having a small color palette actually forces the artist to make better use of color and contrast. You can tell right away when comparing Amiga stuff with the early 256-color SVGA stuff on IBM.
