16-bit Memories by Intercepto 16-bit Memories by Intercepto
Childhood, Christmas time, friends, family, joy, happiness ... and, a new toy on my desk. Toy that will define my life, responsible for such a beautiful experiences from my childhood. Kids imaginary world, lost over time, a glimpse of it left in my head, a glimpse of priceless memory.
But, it wouldn't be such a great experience if it wasn't for my friends... do you guys remember how we spent hours playing games, competing and exploring these new digital frontiers?

I must admit I had Atari ST not Amiga ;), but my friend had Amiga and it had way better graphics and sound than my ST. So that's the reason why I decided to model Amiga for this illustration, out of respect. :)

Hello your work is great I would like to use it as a wallpaper in a linux distribution that wants to bring back the feeling of amiga on linux see… obviously behind your permission and on your terms.

I had an Amiga 500, I remember upgrading it to a whopping ONE whole megabyte of ram. I did more upgrades later; adding a 20 megabyte hard drive, even more ram and a thingie to increase the chip ram, but I can't remember what it was called. Now I run 0S 3.9 via win uae on a windows 7 machine; which isn't nearly as much fun. Very well done - thanks!
