This guy is incredible!

I don't remember ever, since 2003 when I started using Internet and browsing Spectrum news that anybody produced so much and so good quality loading screens for Spectrum games. What else can I say, waiting for even more :)

Oh I don't know, the original has a minimalist perfection to it, with a conjunctive practicality that perturbs the negative space within the the realm of discourse the distinctive formal juxtapositions.

(modified from an online art critic generator :-p)

It's weird that so many of the top graphic guys, Andy, MACBG, redballoon, Rorthron don't use the (IMO) best ZX graphics package out there!

It's very kind of you to include me in this list, but I'm really not in the others' league. And if my graphics manage to look half-decent, it's probably in spite of my methods, not because of them!

Nice screens, I like the way that some are for games that didn't have loading screens originally.

My favourites are probably 3D Tunnel and Styx. The Pyramid looks pretty cool too.

Do you take requests? Not that I wish to lower the tone at all but... I always thought Soho Sex Quest deserved a decent loading screen ;)

Here's a new one. This time not an alternative loading screen. I use to do scenic pics on the Amiga and wanted to prove to myself I could do the same on the Spectrum. So settled for a wintry scene, added a few Spectrum game characters and named the pic, Horace & Friends Ski Lodge. See if you can find them all. :)

Great stuff! Green Beret has his winter camouflage on to help him blend into the trunk of the left most tree. And I'm really hoping Robbie the robot is skating on top of the lake and not frozen solid underneath it. :)
