My commission work is done (for now), so it’s time for a site update!


Custom Sprites:
Friday the 13th: an all-new sprite of Pamela Voorhees’ knife ready pose, a reshading of the 2018 “power lurk” pose sprite, and FINALLY the Jason sprite from my old “Horror vs. Horror” pixel art print has been added in a modified form.

All new sprites added to the site’s main image generator

My commission work is done (for now), so it’s time for a site update!


Custom Sprites:
Marvel Comics: a do-over of my Doctor Strange Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 stance sprite and an all-new Scarlet Witch sprite
DC Comics: Doctor Fate
Sonic Blast Man: an all-new Sonic Blast Man sprite in the same pose as my old edit

Looks like a bunch of magicians and some hero pulled out of an unexpected version of reality. Hmmm…

Mini-logos: Dr. Fate added to DC Comics

All new sprites added to the site’s image generator, and so has a new Marvel Legends 20th Anniversary package tribute. Oddly enough, while the only one I have (so far) is Cap, I made a pixel version of Iron Man’s figure stand background. Don’t worry, there are also options to use backgrounds from various Marvel games by Capcom and a few that I’ve made. This ML card is MOSTLY finished, there’s another thing that’d require modding the whole engine to do, so that’ll have to wait for another day.

Custom Portraits:
X-Men:Children of the Atom: Bishop and Scarlet Witch
Marvel Super Heroes: Storm

All three portraits have also been added to the main image generator, X-Men CotA Vs. and MSH Vs. Screen generators.


I’ve just started working on some pixel art commissions, so I’ll be very busy for a while. I’m not sure when I’ll be done and have enough time for site updates, but I’ll be back as soon as possible. There’s some new video stuff in the works, to the point where I’ve made pixel remakes of some old-school TV overlay fonts:


Other plans (besides sprites) include a frequently asked questions video (because people have been asking more questions), some new screen layouts for the Image Generators, and a ToyBoss section update.

Couldn’t let Black History Month end without an update like this, so let’s get into it!

Custom Sprites:
Sega: B.D. Joe
DC Comics: Nubia (original armor)
Marvel Comics: Bishop
They weren’t alone, as new sprites of Balrog (Street Fighter) and Doc (G.I.JOE) were added to the gallery earlier in the month!

Mini-logos:
Sega: B.D. Joe
DC Comics: Nubia
Marvel Comics: Bishop (1994)

These new sprites and mini-logos have been added to the GFX Generator, where you can make pics like the one at the top of this post!

It’s time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 80s-born A Real American Hero toy line with more G.I.JOE sprites!

Custom Sprites:
G.I.JOE: all-new sprites for Cover Girl, Doc, Grand Slam, Gung-Ho, Zap, a new Big Boa (made from the same base sprite as the scratch-made Balrog I added earlier this month), and a v.4 (1991) version of my scratch-made Snake-Eyes – fight stance sprite was added.
(also, Tomax and Xamot were added two days ago during the Twosday 2022 update)
Street Fighter: Vega (G.I.JOE figure, a headswap and repaint of Banzai)

Trivia: this specific version of Snake-Eyes appears in both the Konami arcade game and G.I.JOE the Atlantis Factor for NES, and most of the mold was reused to make Nightfighter Guile in the Street Fighter: the Movie toyline. These v.1 versions of Gung-Ho and Zap both appear in the 1-on-1 combat section of Epyx’s G.I. JOE game, easily my favorite toyline-based game made when the toyline was still new.

All these new sprites were also added to the main image generators, along with that new background based on the G.I. JOE Headquarters Command Center playset. Yes, finally, a G.I. JOE background! NOTE: if you don’t see a character’s name in that section, they’re either in the G.I. JOE or Cobra character slot. Snake-Eyes has his own character slot, the others (except Vega, he’s in Capcom/Street Fighter) appear in their team’s slots.

There will be more G.I.JOE sprites in other updates this year, so keep checking in to see who gets added!

Hot dang, that’s a lot of twos! This site is going to celebrate that with some new Double Dragon sprites, along with some other twins, including another pair of Technos game twins!

Double Dragon: Billy and Jimmy Lee (Double Dragon Advance cover art pose), Skullmageddon (Double Dragon Neon), an update of my 2017 Chin Taimei sprite
Kunio-kun: the Hattori Twins/Dragon Twins (who are based on the Lee Brothers)
Streets of Rage: Onihime and Yasha (a.k.a. Mona and Lisa) had their standing and crouching sprites redone
DC Comics: the Wonder Twins Zan and Jayna (sorry, you’ll have to wait for Gleek)
G.I.JOE: Tomax and Xamot, evil twin brothers!

All new sprites have been added to the main image generator, where you can create graphics like the one at the top of this post!

Finally, because I couldn’t let this day happen without doing this, here’s the Double Dragon Sprite Showcase video!

Stay tuned, there’ll be a “Yo Joe!” update later this week!

The first update of 2022 is here!


Magic Sword: new scratch-made sprite of Alan/the Brave One (player one)
Tomb Raider: new v.1 Lara Croft sprite
Shantae:new Shantae sprite
Sonic the Hedgehog: Amy Rose (classic)
Illmosis: new Nutroll taunt sprite and improved fight stance sprite and the first Beans vs. Cornbread character sprite: Al1mighty Grandmaster Wizard!
Marvel Comics: the Vision (arms folded, white rebooted design)
DC Comics: Fire/Green Flame sprite

all new customs sprites added to Image Generators.

Also, a quick little video showing of the new sprites (including a few with eye blink animations), a display of all the X-Men sprites I’ve done so far, and a little bit more of something I’ve been posting teasers of since last year.

Custom Sprites: Finally, every character in the Marvel and DC gallery that only had a sprite edit based on a Capcom fighting game sprite now has a sprite I made from scratch. I’ve been working toward this goal on the side for a while, but I just decided to clear them all out before 2021 ended. Some of these new sprites are exact or close replacements for the old poses, but not all of them. The edits for those characters who weren’t originally in the games will be removed from the Image Generators.
Megaman: Megaman classic – redid the Rockman 1 title screen pose from scratch, Elecman (NES stance), Dr. Wily, and (by popular demand) Yellow Devil
Run Saber (new separate gallery): Allen and Sheena, new scratch-made idle sprites
DC Comics: Blue Beetle (Ted Kord), Red Tornado, Green Lanterns Guy Gardner, Arisia, Katma Tui, Kilowog, and a new Justice League group sprite with the Brave and the Bold #28 line-up.
Marvel Comics: Archangel, Havok, Professor X, Psylocke, Rogue, X-23, Doctor Octopus, the Lizard, and new group sprites of the Avengers (issue #1) and the X-Men (Konami beat ’em up playable roster)
Masters of the Universe: new Skeletor sprite (with Havok Staff)
G.I.JOE: all-new scratch-made Quick Kick

Mini-Logos:
Atlus: Run Saber
Marvel Comics: Archangel, Professor X
DC Comics: Blue Beetle, Red Tornado

ToyBoss: Added a page for my first custom figure in FIFTEEN YEARS and first custom Marvel Legend has been added to the page, the Red Skull in his business suit (as seen in Data East’s Captain America and the Avengers)!

All sprites (except for the group sprites) have been added to the image generators, along with:
– the Comic Book arcade background being added to the main generator (Group, Vs., MvC Ending, Comic 88×136, Boxes).

Last, but definitely not least, there’s a Wrap-Up video on the ScrollBoss YouTube channel! The vid is a mix of clips from my 2021 videos (the Superhero Showcade with Iron Man and Batman, Beat ‘Em Up Showcade 2021, DangerTerrorHorrorThon, and more), a few updated clips (The Gotham villain scroll no longer has Bane in it), and some all-new clips, including some with the sprites in today’s update:

It’s been a tiring year (online and off), so I’m going to get some rest for a while. Thank you for coming through, I hope you have a great remainder of 2021, and I’ll see you on the other side of New Year’s Eve!

Just a little something to observe the miracle that is Karnovember. One new (“BAL-LOOOOOON!”) and one old sprite that I didn’t post until now (classic Karnov fireball) have been added to the Custom Sprite gallery and the Image Generators!

Also, I uploaded the Karnovember logo I made this afternoon in a .ZIP, with a bigger transparent .PNG and the SVG vector file from Inkscape. It needs work, so feel free to improve/fix it before using it for your own stuff. Download it from this link!


The 2021 wrap-up is coming this December, stay tuned, especially if you like mutants!


Custom Sprites:
Metroid: Samus Aran (Metroid Dread) and Kraid (Super Metroid design, NES-ish height) added
Marvel Comics: Living Laser scratch-made sprite added
Extra notes:
1.) I added the Comic Books hub to the bottom of any comic book-related pages, just to make it easier.
2.) Living Laser replaces the last of my old Marvel Villain sprite edits made from Capcom sprites. I cleared the DC Comics villains last year, so now it’s down to getting scratch-made sprites to replace the last of the heroes, with six for Marvel and six for DC. I’ve got line art drawn for a few of them, so finishing them up will be one of my 2022 side-missions.

Mini-logos: Grim Reaper (who got a new sprite a few weeks ago) and Living Laser get new mini-logos in the Marvel gallery

Anyway, all new sprites and mini-logos were also added to the main image generator, where I made the image at the top of this post


I’m currently doing some paid pixel art work right now (commissions aren’t open again, this was set-up long in advance), so the things here will be slow for a bit.


With social media still going downhill and the likelihood that Web 3.0 will be built to shut out more people than it’ll let in (and even more likely to exploit people as much as possible), I find myself being more grateful to see the independent sites updating.

Dire has been working up a storm over at both the West Mansion Splatterhouse shrine and the OPFCG blog. It’s more than adding things to the sites (and there’s a lot of newness in West Mansion), but talking about things like his revived Turbografx-16 collection, finding his Metal Slug fan site in the Internet Archive, and more.
