Hiya y'all,

Tonight I visited the website of a fellow Electric Light Orchestra fan.
Brian's website is at : http://www.yqcomputer.com/

I was majorly impressed by his black & white image of a logo named Eclipse,
and wanted to recreate it on the Oric.
(Brian, the Oric is an 80's 8-bit computer with a graphic resolution of
240x200).

Here is my weak attempt at immitation :

The screenshot for the Oric may be downloaded here :

Threw it together in less than an hour using SPAINT ;)

Eclipse,

Not bad. Now do the Spaceship logo from the Out of the Blue days.

Hiya Steve,




Your command is my wish......
(still a work in progress - especially still to add the outside ring
clamps/wings.)

You can see the official logo that I am working from here :

A little bit of a resolution to work in, and attributes are going to be
*** (if possible - given all the curves), but finding this fun.

I thought you'd have fun with that one. Pretty cool to have when you
succeed.
I don't think you'll get the colour attributes unless you cheat a bit and
use some form of cross-hatching, thought you should be able to fill in the
blue bits using anyscreen bits that get taken away as a 'shadow'.

good luck !
