Custom Sprites – the following scratch-made sprites were added to the galleries
Sega: Opa-Opa and Upa-Upa
DC Comics: an all-new Riddler sprite
Jaleco: a new Kazan (Brawl Brothers/Rushing Beat Ran) standing sprite
Games (Independent): new gallery page with Bruizer and Pugi from Combat Core and a 2013 sprite of Sen from Project Sen (which reminds me that I need to make a better sprite of her)

Mini-Logos – Opa-Opa and Upa-Upa added to Sega gallery, the Riddler added to DC Comics gallery
All of these things have been added to the GFX Generators. Opa-Opa was secretly added last week, but this update gives him a palette for his brother, Upa-Upa.

The Bruizer and Pugi sprites were made to show support for the Combat Core Kickstarter. The campaign ends on Sunday, June 14th, and the party brawler (the best name I’ve seen for that kind of fighting game) still needs your help to be funded. You can even get an alpha of the game from the Kickstarter page to convince you that the game is worth helping!

Check out this MABManZ interview with Rated S Gaming that also has footage of new things in the game, including an arena with a Japanese Exploding Ropes Death Match wrestling ring.

That’s all the main info for today’s update, but there’s a bit more info behind this cut. Have a good weekend!

So this update looks really random, right? Well, there’s a reason for that. I have to prepare for a convention in July (the All AmeriCon 6 in Warren, Ohio) and I’m working on things for new prints, including pixel art prints. One of those prints will have the Riddler sprite and another sprite that I finished Wednesday.

The other sprites in the future prints won’t be in the generators right away and that’s something I’ll talk about when that print debuts. The Riddler’s in this update because it was time to replace that really old edit I made in the early 00s.

The theme of replacing old edits continues with Kazan. I’d been making MvsC Hiryu-based edits of him almost since I first started editing older Capcom sprites to make new characters. Now that I’m firmly into making pixel art from scratch, I plan to replace many of those old edits with fresh sprites made from scratch. I doubt that I’ll be able to remake everyone, but I plan to come close to that. Feel free to leave a comment if there are any old sprite edits you’d like to see get replaced sooner rather than later!
