December 31st, 2017

I hope you enjoyed this year’s offerings for the site, even if I didn’t get to finish some of the things I teased for it. There were a lot of sprites…

… and not all of them are even in that pic. I’ve added two more in this update.

Storm was in the X-Men print, but not on the site (until now) and the Chainsaw Boss from Crime Fighters was done during the DangerTerrorHorrorThon, but I didn’t really feel like he completely fit the theme for some reason.

edit: As much as I want this year over as soon as possible, I’ve got to add some stuff here.

The Steam Winter Sale is still going strong and I want to recommend some of my personal favorites:
River City Ransom: Underground (a worthy successor to the original), Fire Pro Wrestling World (the legendary series finally hits PCs with more customization than ever), Combat Core (in Early Access, a fun arena brawler for those to still miss Power Stone), Mercenary Kings (easily one of my favorite recent run ‘n gun games), and Owlboy (a pixel art masterpiece 10 years in the making, and it shows).

Most of 2017 was crappy for me, but some of the few good things I was able to experience this happened because of this site. Those pixel art commissions made up for the loss in day job hours and, fortunately, everyone I worked with was incredibly cool and paid me to sprite things I enjoyed making. The biggest event was being asked by Cuddly Rigor Mortis to make a print for the Gallery1988 Mattel show, and the limited edition print sold out! I finished a lot of my own personal wish-list sprites (the Capcom Aliens vs. Predator crew, completing the Mega Man 2 Robot Masters, the Last Dragon, Konami X-Men, Dr. West from Re-Animator, too many others to list). Lots of behind-the-scenes work was done on the site, and I’ve got another chunk almost done that will change and add a lot of sections in 2018. I want to thank you for the feedback and extra encouragement I got throughout the year, because it helped me get through the rough spots. See you in 2018!

  1. Happy new year!
    Hope 2018 will be a better year.
    Please let us know when will you be open for commissions again.

  2. I don’t know when it will be, but I’ll post about everywhere that I can. Weirdly, I haven’t been able to log into Facebook after a NoScript update. I’ll just have to send you an e-mail if I start them back up again.

    How are your projects coming along?

  3. hello that day give you an idea that could put sam of the film trick or treat horror movie that came out in 2009 and the other is a doubt but could get a beta of DangerTerrorHorrorThon and the other if they have a question about any idea to make sprites of terror could contact me as I am a fan of the horror genre and would be excited to help them

    and if you have the doubt as is sam here I have an image I hope
    help them in any way

  4. I think it’d be good to finally have Sam in one of this year’s Halloween updates. Even with the 40th Anniversary of the original Halloween this year, there’s room for Sam.

    Thanks for the offer for ideas. Even with a to-do list as big as mine for sprites, sometimes I can’t decide exactly who to sprite. The biggest problem is time, because there are a lot of characters that I sketched out for 2017 that I didn’t have time to sprite yet.

  5. hi how are you I come with new ideas
    it occurs to me that you could put cassie hack comics hack slash
    since it is also connected to the world of the slasher and the others are kayako
    toshio will let you know if I can find more

  6. and these are the last ones I hope they serve you
    victor crowley, annabelle, colonel herzog, the creeper, peter rottentail, Mary Shaw,
    stitches the clown, Damien Thorn, the gremlins and slenderman since his movie is coming up on May 18, well, it could also be king kong and godzilla
    and the others could be of classic movies like frankenstein etc

    PS I’m really fascinated by helping you know that I’ve said it before but I love your work and I like that you put a lot of effort to make your sprites

  7. and these are the last ones I hope they serve you
    victor crowley, annabelle, colonel herzog, the creeper, peter rottentail, Mary Shaw,
    stitches the clown, Damien Thorn, the gremlins and slenderman since his movie is coming up on May 18, well, it could also be king kong and godzilla
    and the others could be of classic movies like frankenstein etc

  8. PD sincerely I like your work and I see that you put a lot of effort to do the sprites I hope this helps you and if you have a problem and you could not do them I understand you

  9. and finally and if this last one is jigsaw and the Billy doll of saw and I have a doubt in the gallery of the movies was not carrie nor the thin man you are going to post

  10. That’s a really solid list of ideas, and you have my thanks for the suggestions and kind words, cristobal! There are times when I feel like there’s no point in making these sprites or working on this site, so the comments like yours help keep me going.

    Victor Crowley (and the Danielle Harris version of Marybeth), Carrie, Godzilla, King Kong and the Gremlins are characters I definitely want to sprite. I really wanted to sprite the Gremlins for Christmas in 2017, but I was too tired. I want to figure out a good size for characters like King Kong and Godzilla, because they’re too big to sprite in scale with the regular sprites.

    The Creeper would be cool, but I wonder if I can find enough reference pics for him. It’s hard to sprite characters that aren’t completely shown. Damien Thorn would be a fun challenge, and I think he, Carrie and Regan MacNeil could be part of a 70s horror themed update. I’ll keep the others in mind if I’m working on a mini-theme they’d fit into (like evil dolls, mad doctors, etc.).

    Thanks again for the ideas! Just in case I forgot to mention it before, I want to do some horror-themed updates other than on Halloween, so I’ll get some of your requests in there this year :)

  11. you could do to the demogorgon of stranger things
    and to cthulhu

  12. or also to
    pale man’s labyrinth of the faun

  13. I could honestly help you with others from the video game section

  14. these are really my last ideas and I also want to ask you some questions krampus character from the movie with the same name of the year 2015 van helsing the demon lipstick-faced the babadook and finally professor gordon crowley from the movie jack brooks monster slayer

  15. 1 as you came up with the idea of ​​a horror video game 2 which is your favorite movie 3 predator and alien and mania cop will also be in the game and 4 you want to be my friend

  16. and if you do not have time I’m sorry I do not want you to feel pressured by the list
