The restrictive colours of the Spectrum never feel imposed on your screens, it's rather like the limited palette is a conscious artistic choice. Very natural and unconstrained. It's a joy to see that you manage to be this prolific as well!

Thanks Ersh. Its sometimes a struggle especially when creating screens of other peoples artwork, but I enjoy the challenge. As long as the main focal characters look ok I find you can be lenient with some of the background details, but I do try to fit the main elements into the composition. I find the attributes decide what route the artwork takes at times and this can sometimes lead to better screens than I hoped. As for being prolific, some screens are easier to do than others! ;)

PS - I try and make the palette work as best I can. I think the colours on the Spectrum are perfect and wouldn't enjoy doing Amstrad or C64 screens because the challenge of limited colours and attributes isn't there. Too many colours - too much choice. Less is more.
