The OP wrote artworks/concept arts so I'll take the risk of posting some of the Commodore 64 pictures I've done, they certainly aren't concept art but they might qualify as artworks. Some are in multicolour bitmap mode (160x200 pixels, 3 colours + screen colour for each 4x8 pixel block) and some are in singlecolour bitmap mode (320x200 pixels, 2 colours total for each 8x8 pixel block), a couple use sprite/raster timing trickery to put graphics in the borders and two of them use intense raster timing majic to squeeze more than 3 colours+background colour into each 4x8 block.

Thank you guys :)

[quote="Noga":kot9inao]Was it all done by mouse or tablet?[/quote:kot9inao]
Most of those were done with a mouse, and some were actually done with the keyboard.

The C64 paint program I used from 1992-2006 had keyboard control for drawing. I used the cursor keys to move around on the screen and 1, 2, 3, 4 to set different coloured pixels. Control + 1-8 and the Commodore key + 1-8 were used to copy colours from the palette (16 glorious colours predefined by the designers of the graphic chip) to the 4x8 pixel block I was working on. If you think this sounds bad, also bear in mind that the C64 only has two cursor keys, one for up/down and one for left/right, so you have to press shift+down to get up.

This picture was the last one I did in that program, using the keyboard:


The program I used before this (from the 1980s until 1992) had joystick control, which was far worse.
