New Vs. Old: Digital Distress? #2

[Normal vs. Digital Distress.]
I thought about Sci-Fi as a genre in relation to this project, specifically the typically more retro feel sometimes associated with Sci-Fi. I came to the realisation that older work from this genre usually have an image on screen that typically suffers form a digital distress effect; think old Television Monitors & VHS with scan-lines... So I decided to give it a try myself, using an image I'd previously put together for my last post as a media test.

With digital art, its easy to recreate images containing distress effects that mimic screen grabs from television monitors. Typically using a horizontal line pattern, adding noise filters and adjustments.
