Almost as touching as your best draw here.... Only one thing.. it being so long but not so..fat?...it makes the image looks tiny, my glasses were almost useless when trying to see it without zoom, other than that nice job, i jsut dont get how u make thigns like this out of 8 bits

Thank you! :)

The artwork is that long because it was created following the 80 columns wide standard of ANSi art, used back in the 90's as the visual interface of Bulletin Board Systems. So the users would log on the BBS and view the art scrolling on their monitors by 80 columns x 24 lines until the end of it. The BBS days are long gone, but the retro digital art style still lingers.

I've used PabloDraw (textmode editor) for Mac to create all my works posted on NG.

Reminds me of that beautiful bygone era.

Which makes this piece beautiful.

Not only is your work just beautiful, I very much enjoy the unique method of story telling you use.
