My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!

GrafX2 is a bitmap paint program inspired by the Amiga programs ​Deluxe Paint and Brilliance. Specialized in 256-color drawing, it includes a very large number of tools and effects that make it particularly suitable for pixel art, game graphics, and generally any detailed graphics painted with a mouse. The program is mostly developed on Linux and Windows, but is also portable on many other platforms.

If you are not sure why Grafx2 is so much better than the good old Microsoft Paint, here are some of the most important features :

  • Image editing in indexed colors (with palette), up to 256 colors
  • Classical tools : lines, circles, text, multiple undo/redo, built-in brushes, …
  • Less classical tools : airbrush, splines, gradient-filled shapes, custom brushes
  • Dual-view mode, you can see and draw both zoomed and actual size views at the same time
  • Extensive palette editor : RGB and HSL color systems, editing group of colors, define and create color ranges
  • Palette control : reorder colors without altering picture, common palette generation for merging two images
  • Shading mode : helps you to antialias with your own gradients
  • Grid mode : draw tile and easily assemble and copy them to create a screen mockup.
  • Patterned mode
  • Transparency, smoothing, smearing, and other advanced effects
  • Extensive and customizable shortcuts. You can control everything with the keyboard and disable the menu to draw fullscreen
  • Unusual screen modes : wide and tall pixels, constrained palettes. Very useful for pictures dedicated to 8 and 16-bit computers.
