Is there such a thing as an MZ demoscene?

I didn't notice that! Thanks for all the links. Vectrex is very impressive.

This isn't really a demo, and it's not that impressive either, but I made a picture using the pseudo graphics on the Sharp MZ-80A. The graphics are stored in a compressed format and unpacked to the screen, column by column. This is BASIC, so it takes some time to draw. Ben (mz-80a) later translated the drawing routines to machine code.

Here's a little more artwork made by Datadoor using the MZ character set. Nice big images :)

Maybe we should have a separate section for MZ artwork !
