Well, there are actually two versions of this picture. The main “1980s style” version of this picture was mostly just an excuse to try out this editing technique I found online for creating scanlines using a freeware editing program called “GIMP“. I also combined this with a variant on my “fake pixel art” technique, as well as a few extra effects from an ancient version of Paint Shop Pro.
The original version of this picture, with more detail, more vivid colours and more “normal” digital editing can be seen by clicking here.
