Sure, with lots of ideas borrowed from different other. E. g. the waves ("big wave of kanagawa").
But I'm not a professional one (like mentioned in your other thread) which can be obviously seen, just an amateur.
I like low res too. The only thing spending time for gfx is an issue. I'm somewhat short handed those days, therefore few images made. :'(

I enjoy the semiology in this thread, with the message in Hal's pic being 'Attack the Titan' while this thread was created to feature horrible-to-average mostly converted (without crediting original authors) pictures done by someone actually calling himself 'Titan'.
I'm sure Hal didnt have that intention, but still it's an interesting coincidence.  :D

My intention, when I created this thread was to show images of Amstrad CPC, which in my opinion are quite beautiful, or at least with a lot of color, without more ... at the beginning of the thread, of course I put the author of them , and as more images were published, as I have been adding them.
I have no idea about graphics or drawing techniques, or anything related to CPC, I just enjoy them as an old user, but if you consider that: " ...  this thread was created to feature horrible-to-average mostly converted pictures ... ", maybe I should stop posting images and let the thread die.

Perhaps my wording should have been different but by no means my intention was to criticize you, or your opening of this thread, or your intentions to share pictures that you find interesting. I sincerely apologize for that.
I just found it amusing that there was a picture posted by Hal that (unintentionally) seems as if 'attacking' this thread's main 'theme' in metaphorical glory. Of course I did make a statement about this thread's 'theme', but my criticism is not towards you, rather towards the practice of Titan to put his tag on other people's pics that he happened to transfer onto the CPC.

Ok, I also wrote that in many cases he does a lousy job in terms of quality, and I think I had said the same in some Toki thread some time ago. Some of the pics are indeed horrible, others are acceptable. It's not a bad thing to tell that something is not nice when it's not. That might even push the person involved to get better with time. But even so, he needs to credit people he, ahem, 'borrows' his pics from instead of just putting his tag on the pic and claiming it as his own.
Then again, perhaps he does credit the original authors on his personal space where he uploads his pics.  I can only speak from what I see, and there doesn't seem to be a link in this thread, so...

Please carry on, I have been a fan of this thread since it started.

railslave: are your pictures original work or reworked conversion?
I like the unusual colors!
All original

No intention by myself. "Attack the Titan" referrers simple to the tentacle in the middle. Afterwards I realised it - funny coincidence. ;D
The image had been created months/year before the thread started.

Absolutely stunning.

Phew! These images are so damn beautiful ...

I hope that you forgive me to say that I really enjoyed these images - knowing to be careful to be critical whether Titan is the real author - but at least he brought these images to us CPC users, let them shine in the beautiful colors that machine can produce, and be thankful for getting them converted - even if that's not nearly the same effort than creating them from scratch - it still is some effort, thinking of that little finetuning to box the colours into our palette, removing artefacts and such.

May the credit go to the original authors we might never get to know. If someone reading this thread ever identifies the provenience or some of the art shown here, please drop a line.

But for now let's forget that, enjoy these stills, and be thankful to whoever did them.
