- A work done by me nearly 40 years ago,

technique using PLAKA(R) colours.
- Redone on VIC-20.
- The original still exists. :)
My own editors MINISKETCH and MINIPAINT
on VIC-20. MINISKETCH for the raw draft
(#1), MINIPAINT to refine the picture
from #1 to #2, and from #4 to the final.
Two batch tools using MINIGRAFIK did the
spray process (spray.prg, which resulted
in #3) and the silkscreen process
(combine.prg, #2 and #3 -> #4).
MINIPAINT requires a +16K RAM expansion,
the other tools run with +8K RAM extra.
How to view the pictures:
The workstage *.prg's and 'final.prg'
are actually executable pictures, when
your VIC-20 is equipped with at least a
+8K RAM expansion. Just LOAD them (with
just ",8", *not* ",8,1"!) and then RUN.
If you want to view the picture on an
unexpanded VIC-20, load "VIEW3K.PRG",
run it, and enter "FINAL.PRG" at the
