"If you're thinking of coming to America this is what it's like: You've got your Comfort Inn; you got your Best Western; you got your Red Lobster where you eat. Everybody's very fat, everybody's very stupid and everybody's very rude. It's not the holiday programme, it's the truth."

Blok Copy
Blok Copy cassette inlay


Rendering: T.M.R
Tools: Imagine and Photoshop

Blok Copy is the new name for the project formerly known as Shyfter. Since the original rendering was done a few years ago now, i wasn't entirely happy with the look when it came to producing the cassette inlay for the release version of Blok Copy, so i went back to the virtual drawing board and spent a day building a new scene and then experimenting with transparency to see what i could make the cubes do.

The end results are, at least to my mind, far better than the mocked Atari 2600 box artwork and it bloody well should be; the rendering time for so many semi-transparent objects was vast, three hours for a full render of the background alone (and it took a few rough tests before that was launched) and nearly an hour for the multi-lightsourced logo and reflective cube. The green on black format flash is ours (mine and Simon's) since Mastertronic didn't use a black flash or produce PET software to assign it a colour scheme.
