Great pictures. Love the aweseme setup!

Do you have any of the pixel- or 3d-art to share?

Some of your original C64 work from back then??

Uhm, in fact I have. ;) I recently had backed up my old C64 floppy disks with my VERY old work. Also, I try to backup some of my old Amiga artwork, yet unfortunately a lot of my 3.5 disks have been destroyed during a water damage incident. :(

As for the 3D-art: Since this is what I mainly do as a freelancer, yes, I can share some of it. Yet I have to remind that this is all nowadays state-of-the-art, if that's ok for you?. I fear that my old Lightwave/3DStudioDOS 3D-attempts are (partially) lost.

Hi,

i can't speak for everyone here but I'd be interested.

I have a Kryoflux adapter, so if you would want to try to read out some older disks let me know.

The Kryoflux has both 3,5 and 5,25 floppy drives.

Cheers,
McT

PRINT "OMG!!! A blast from my past. This feels like looking back at the first steps of a newborn pixel artist." :lol:

Actually, I have my roots at drawing with ink & pencils on paper (want to see that too?), but as the computer became a part of my life, making graphics there was inevitable of course. Alrighty, here we go: Some 8-bit graphics from lil' old me. Back then, I've been using the alias "Lyte" in the demo scene...
C64_Graphics_by_Lyte_1.jpg
Ahhh, doing anti-aliasing pixel by pixel with my good old Konix Navigator joystic. The beginning...

I got better over time, and blue seemed to be my favorite color. Blue makes happy...

Monochrome graphics and, ROFL, the first attempt of converting an Amiga IFF graphics to the C64...

Various logos and graphics for demos. The disk on the little monitor of the "Turn Disk" graphics was rotating actually...

Thank you. I'm here for quite a while though, now just spamming some graphics. :D

LOAD "AMIGA&LIGHTWAVE" ,8,1
READY
RUN

PRINT "Newtek's Lightwave 3D on the Amiga was my first contact to 3D graphics."
PRINT "Back then, I'd been heavily inspired by the science fiction show Babylon 5."

Unfortunately, I am still searching my old Amiga Pixel artwork, those disks are... somewhere. :roll: What I found are some renderings I did with Lightwave 3D on my Amiga. The rendering times have been insanely long and the results are... well, those were my first steps into the world of 3D graphics.
Amiga_Lightwave_SpaceScene.jpg
I'm a SciFi Nerd, so - yes - a spacship scene was mandatory back then. Gee, those renderings are far over 20 years old, I was young an unexperienced, and I had a lot to learn...

Amiga_Lightwave_Babylon5.jpg
I even re-modelled some Babylon 5 vessels and their hyperjump gate, animated of course, but those animations are lost unfortunately...

Well, 3D graphics was and is part of my life since then, I evolved, learned all I needed to know by myself, and nowadays I do 3D graphics as part of my professional freelancing.

Thanks to all of you for your positive feedback! :D The following graphics are from the Playstation 2 and PC, so they are not really related to the Amiga. I'll post them here to finalize showing the evolution of my graphics till today.
Showcase_InGame_LegendOfKay2.jpg
This is from the Playstation 2 Jump&Run game prototype "Legend of Kay II". The game unfortunately never came out due to the closedown of the development studio back then...

Showcase_Settlers_BowmakerBuilding.jpg
3D assets I've done for the Settlers 6: Rise of an Empire game.

Showcase_Settlers_NorthEuropeanCastle.jpg
The goal was to create a medieval comic-like look for all of the buildings.

Showcase_Settlers_SiegeEngineWorkshop.jpg
The Siege Engine Workshop has been the building with the most complex animations in the game.

Showcase_SciFiChopper_wip.jpg
This is from a private project, the creation of a SciFi Chopper with two front wheels. I never finisted this one though...

HeavyLiftOffshore_JackupVessel.jpg
This is what I do nowadays: Creating 3D assets and worlds for the Macro Technology Industry and for Simulation and Training purposes.

DOLL_X-CATMF_Catering_Truck_Rendering.jpg
On of my focuses is 3D models of fully operational vehicles for driving-, flight-, and nautical-simluators.

TUG_Pushback_Truck_Rendering.jpg
Last but not least: A airport pushback truck for on eof my lastes clients.

Ok, that's it guys. Now you're all up to date. ;) I hope you enjoy the graphics, though most of them are done with nowadays state-of-the-art hardware.
