It’s interesting — during the development of the Amiga, artists were contracted to come in and draw impressive and demonstrative digital art using versions of the first Amiga drawing program, “Graphicraft,” so early on in its development that file operations had yet to be implemented. The drawings were completed, photographed by Commodore, and then lost to the ether when the system was powered off.
It’s amazing to contemplate, so groundbreaking were some of these works, carried out on a $1,295 consumer-oriented computer in 1985.
One such example is “Four-Byte Burger” by Jack Haeger, here scanned from one of the Amiga 1000’s manual covers.
Note the CRT scanlines in the image … and their orientation.

"Four-Byte Burger" by Jack Haeger
Drawn on an Amiga 1000 in its VERY early days, using a graphics program that didn’t yet have a save function. Scan here from the Graphicraft manual.
