Cover artists

General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

I get what you mean but shouldn't there be some consistency with how he's credited to games in the sense that his "proper" name is always first? Maybe I'm wrong but if I didn't know any better then when I skim through the list of games and artists it looks like Fantasy World Dizzy and Rock Star Ate My Hamster were done by two people with really similar names rather than them actually being the same person. To be honest, the Alistair name is really just a typo that's come up at some point. My nephew put Richerd on my Xmas card because his spelling is still at the phonetic stage but it doesn't mean it's an official variant of my name! ;)

Actually, to clarify what I mean by "official", Alastair and Alistair are both proper names but I don't think anyone who was called one or the other would accept the other spelling as being the correct spelling of their name. As for my name, some people choose to spell Richard with an e but I certainly don't! :)

Good point. Typos shouldn't be catalogued, only intentional nicknames.

I will fix it in the next ZXDB update!

Back to the Future (Electric Dreams) - Drew Struzan

The site talks about the film cover, but it's just the same as the game cover.

Phil Gascoine made some CRL artworks, as it's confirmed in the corresponding instructions:

Glug Glug
Handicap Golf
3D Desert Patrol
Lunar Rescue
Pandemonia
Stargazer Secrets

The next game's artworks were probably made by him, as they look similar to Gascoine's style (can't confirm as no mention of cover author in the instructions):

Caveman
Crawler
Endurance
Formula One
Grand National
Rescue
Woods of Winter
Zaraks

Did some similar research couple years ago about authors of original art, which was used as reference for loading screens (and not only):
https://zxart.ee/eng/graphics/tags/alfonso-azpiri/
https://zxart.ee/eng/graphics/tags/louis-royo/

they are also authors of cover art basically.

Both Roger Tyssiman and Roger Tissyman were mentioned in this thread.

May I assume they are the same person, and the correct spelling is Roger Tissyman?

Yes, both are the same: Roger Tissyman is the correct name.
