A-MIGA Paint

A-MIGA Paint

Is a concept for AmigaOS machines.

A modern painting/animation software tool that blends all the nice features of our favourite paint programs on the Amiga (Deluxe Paint/Brilliance)

I've spend months on the project back in 2013.  These files sit on my harddrive and while I have always enjoyed contributing to other paint packages in recent times, I still crave good tools.

Current tools I use are:

PPaint 7.3 (68k)
Brilliance 2 

Main Menu and Various tools

Zoomed export - custom Png Alpha menu

Tileable texture creation panel with zoom

Symmetry tool

Other designs not included in the post include:

- Complex gradient generators using images with colour limit settings
- Saving animated brushes with Sprite editor
- Lighting effects
- Animated gradients (think modern colour cycling)

...and much more... One can Dream :)

Other tools used in the past:

Opalpaint | TVpaint-AuraPaint | Gimp | ?

MIG n ZIGGY - Amiga Platform Game - 2015-2016 update

MIG n ZGGY update:

Project Concept has had a few small updates since the first post in May 2015.
Space level, Egypt and Ice Level started.

The example maps below are by no means completed. 
This stage is testing how well or not the tiles work together.

"Alex Zirconstar and the Escape from planet Sina" - Amiga 68k game

"Alex Zirconstar and the Escape from planet Sina" - Amiga 68k game.

Some time ago last year (2015) I posted a teaser image, these are some concept images for different levels showing the 16 colour palette used.

Created in PPaint 68k and Photoshop.

Patrick Nevian deserves the credit for the excellent music tracks and game/level design.

The game will hopefully be released in the new month or so.


2015 has been a very busy year The next few post will be a collection of what I have been working on and the focus for 2016.

Some information of other projects.

P.S. The above image was a bootscreen concept for the Amiga NG machines (elements of the design have been removed) but I have always liked the idea of a few boing balls bouncing.

Thankyou for viewing :)
