Рисунки Рика Паркса

Рик Паркс (Rick Parks) – один из тех, кому мы обязаны представлению об Амиге, как о платформе с лучшей пиксельной графикой. Впервые его рисунки появились на Амижных BBS в конце 80-ых, и именно эти рисунки я скачал с Аминета, переконвертировал в PC-форматы и выкладываю сейчас на наш сайт. Заслуга тут конечно по большей части Fred Fish, который собирал все, что было сделано на Амиге, на своих сборниках.

Постараюсь отобразить картинки в хронологическом порядке.

Title: WONDERFUL PICTURE OF ALBERT E.

This is an absolutely wonderful hand-drawn picture of Albert Einstein
by an artist named Rick Parks.

The picture is 320x200 lo-res 64 color HALFBRITE mode - so you need
the Rev. 6 Denise Chip in your Amiga to be able to view the picture
as intended. All Amiga 500s and 2000-series computers have the
halfbrite-capable Denise. Only some Amiga 1000s do but they can be
retrofitted with it (see your dealer).

Look out Jim Sachs.. this guy Parks is VERY talented.

Enjoy

Title: MORE FANTASTIC RICK PARKS PIX




Rick Parks just uploaded these pictures to the capital district Amiga users

I know HARV had been waiting for these, so for the first time:
STYMIE - the Little Rascal
NORMAN - Ricks AMIGAWORLD Cover
BRYCE - A beautiful canyon in Nevada

If you know Rick's work, I'm sure that you will be eager to download these.

Title: ABE LINCOLN BY RICK PARKS


Here's another Rick Parks picture - a stately portrait of the
16th President of the United States - Abraham Lincoln.

320x200 low-res HALFBRITE mode (so it may look slightly funny if
you've an older A1000 without the halfbrite-capable Denise chip which
all 500s, 2000s, and 3000s have).

Another picture from a very talented Amiga artist.

Почти сразу талантливого художника пригласили в Westwood, где он до своей смерти в 1996 году оставался лидером и главным специалистом по художественной части и дизайну. Именно благодаря ему мы можем наслаждаться замечательным артом в ставших уже классикой DragonStrike, Legend of Kyrandia, Eye of the Beholder, Lands of Lore.
