Wow, that looks great! FF books always had good artwork, and the Sorcery series had a unique style as well. One of my favourite pictures was this chap from Return to Firetop Mountain. It would definitely be nice to see more FF-inspired games on the Speccy!

Very stylish screen.

And yes, it's very red but we shouldn't be afraid of using some dominant colour. There are cases where using whole pallete is good because it makes picture more vivid but there are also cases where mood of the screen requires everything more toned down.

If we watch some pictures from demoscene, these guys often try to use as much colour as possible. It's good in some cases but sometimes seeing these rainbow people again and again is too much.

Couple of screens recently finished...

Quahappy (new homebrew game by Jaime Grilo). Note: I'm also doing a version for myself (without title or face and the building a different colour. All the details is lost with dark blue although it does it purpose of making it look spooky...)

... and City of Thieves fan art loading screen (from the Fighting Fantasy book by Ian Livingstone, 1983)

City of Thieves looks lovely.

City of Thieves looks excellent. It also helps that this is also my favourite FF book of all time. I got it from Safeway supermarket in Kingswinford on our monthly shop back in 1983.

Thank you! I'll probably be quiet for a while as I'm currently working on some new homebrew screens. And also, that little thing called real life is interfering too much for my liking lol.

Technically an alternative loading screen, alhtough it's hard to call existing loading screen a loading screen;)
