I planned to have a bigger update than this, but, well, I’ll get into that later. For now, here’s the newness:

New sprites of Adam Hunter (from Sega’s Streets of Rage, Vixen (DC Comics) and Monica Rambeau in her Captain Marvel uniform (Marvel Comics) have been added to the Sega, DC and Marvel galleries. Ms. Rambeau’s Captain Marvel logo being added to the mini-logos gallery. All three characters are in the GFX Generators where Vixen also has 3 more palettes.

The All AmeriCon convention hits Warren, Ohio again on July 18th (one day before this site’s 15th Anniversary) and I’ll be getting a table there to sell scribbles. Get info about it by checking out the Facebook page for the event. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that a few people I know from the internet will roll through, but I’ll announce that once it’s ready.

My plan is to get some pixel art things to sell alongside my usual scribbles and, possible, a mini-art book. To do that, I really do have to detach a bit from this site to work on those things and it needs to start not now, but right now. This site will still be updated at least once a month until the anniversary in July, though it won’t be as much as the crazy deluge of pixels I’ve been dropping on you for the past few months. Clean up work on the generators will continue to make way for crazy new features and a few things on the site will be fixed up. Some of the things I’m working on will also be sold through this site, because I want to make a game-related mini-book, too.

BTW: I had line work for one more sprite, but I might just save her for May. You’ll know why if you know who she is.

“This Valentine’s Day, lucky couples will find themselves in the sack. The unlucky ones will end up in a body bag. The DangerTerrorHorrorThon continues!”

Friday the 13th got its due in yesterday’s update, so lets celebrate Valentine’s Day with a horrorific twist!

Custom Sprites
Movies: Candyman and and the miner (My Bloody Valentine).
Capcom: two scratch-made Jill Valentine sprites in her MvsC3 fighting stance
Konami: A new scratch-made sprite of the Succubus from Symphony of the Night (replacing the old sprite edit)

– Movies: Candyman and My Bloody Valentine(1981)

Those bits of newness were added to the GFX Generators. The Candyman was also added to the Fake Screenshots in Mega Man NES sprite form.

That’s all for this weekend. Take care and keep having a great weekend!

Get ready for two days of the sort of horror-based pixel nonsense that rarely happens here outside of October!

Pamela Voorhees returns to physical (well, pixel) realm in search of her son only to find look-a-likes, doppelgangers and pretenders. Why, these men aren’t her son! What should be done about this mockery? Unfortunately, her answer is the only answer she’s known since Jason drowned all those years ago: “Kill them, mommy! Kill them!”

Custom Sprites
Movies: Pamela Voorhees
Namco: Rick Taylor (Splatterhouse, new pose)
Sega: Kid Chameleon as Manaix
Taito: Booster (Growl/Runark)
Tecmo: Hockey-masked thug (new to replace the 2013 sprite)

The GFX Generators were updated with the new items.

Here’s a few links to some cool stuff to keep that horror groove going:
Anyone disappointed that the real Jason didn’t show up here today should check out Rusty Shackle’s artwork of Jason Voorhees.

The Xiamat Tumblr has a very cool, low-color .GIF of Freddy Krueger that looks like he’s glitching his own NES game from the inside.

Seriously, just follow both of those Tumblrs if you want more of that goodness.

Also: be sure to check out Zombiepalooza Radio’s site and Facebook page!

Tomorrow’s tagline:
“This Valentine’s Day weekend, lucky couples will find themselves in the sack. The unlucky ones will end up in a body bag.”

Big changes are coming to the GFX Generators this year, but here’s a small one that may save you a few headaches. The GFX Generator now has a feature on the last page where you can adjust your choices of where the characters should be, hit the button, and see a reset version of the picture. You can even repeat one sprite/character in all the spots. Things like the character portraits and mini-logos will also switch with the changes. Unfortunately, character name text in the Mega Man NES select screens will not change, but there will be an option for that in the future if this new feature works. Site updates will continue to be a bit small while I work on things like this.

Meanwhile, people seemed to like how that new Raphael sprite looked, so now it’s Mikey’s turn:

I’ll probably wait until I have Don and Leo made before making full-on alternate versions (classic Mirage, 1988 toys), but he’ll have those palettes in the generators.
