Flay / Hyena Colored Art

Flay the Hyena - Title.

Flay the hyena!

What started out as just a simple sketch evolved into completed pictures and 3-d artwork of a character I dubbed “Flay” the Hyena.

Nearing the end my 3-d program lightwave was making decent hand-colored pictures.

About the primitive coloring.

Many of the art pieces items were done on an Amiga 500. The maximum color palette of about 32 colors. You could go up to 4096 colors in HAM-8 mode but it was problematic. During this time the software used was called “Digi-Paint” made by Electronic Arts. Resources were tight at the time. However, learning how to color during that era has taught people a level of restraint that may have been lost with modern painting programs.
