    Asteroids - 10MARC
    This is a HAM6 image created on my Amiga 500 with Workbench 1.3 running Photon Paint. The asteroids are from a picture of some stones in someones front yard with a flower growing in the middle of them. I converted the original picture from her iPhone into a HAM6 image, and used Photon Paint to manually cut out the coolest looking stones. The ship is something I created in Photon Paint probably in 1989 or 1990 - I had a fantasy of working on a game back then, but never got further than drawing the ship. I thought the stones looked like neat asteroids, so i combined the images, resized a few rocks, added a starfield and had my ship blast away at the asteroids.

    Tron - Eric from Amigalove. Created on an Amiga 3000 in AmigaOS 1.3 using Deluxe Paint III, C= “Pregnant” Mouse, 1084S CRT Monitor. Below is a photo of my screen (hence the curvature of the letterforms). It was done using a palette of only 16 colors. It was a very fun challenge! Creation Video -
