"An 18th century funeral cortege, filled with guns? Seems like cause for concern.
Is the dreamer the violent one, or is the danger external? Either way, it's bad news"
When I saw this project, made with a 1990 Mac Classic program called Superpaint, I went back to Tom Moody's animation archive to look at these again:
Nice! As someone who has a reputation as a retro-tech nerd, however, I have to point out the error in the statement "Computers at that time did not have color or even a grayscale."
Thanks--as you can see I started working with those 1-bit grid patterns again. I just realized the RGB sliders in MS Paintbrush (monochrome mode) line up as a single vertical cursor and sweep through all the shades one step at a time.

I love all that peculiar articulation for shade in those tools. (I have to play with them one of these days, but I'm enjoying what other people can do with them.)
from the private Legrady stash:
Love that black and white stuff. We should do the whole blog without colour for a while.
I did greyscale for a week until artfag released a new issue and it inspired me to sparkly rainbows and unicorns.
So instead, lets do porn without for a week.
do porn without, do porn within.
meant porn without colour, my keyboard is missing whole words. Needs cleaning.
I just realized how disgusting that would read if I was a guy.
