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!

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!

The DangerTerrorHorrorThon 2021 continues

I used to say that it never feels like I’ve been doing this for more than 10 years, but after a year as crappy and time-distorted as 2020, it feels like I’ve been going for 15 years now. You may notice that this update is heavy on beat ’em up (a.k.a. belt scroll), and you’ll see why in a bit. For now, here’s the newness:

Custom Sprites
Bad Dudes: new sprites of Animal (+ Zombie Animal) and Hage Ninja
Battletoads (new separate gallery): Pimple (finally completing the playable trio)
Double Dragon: redone DDA stance Billy and Jimmy Lee (replacing the ones from the 20th ScrollBoss anniversary), classic stance Billy, Jimmy and Jeff
Kunio-kun: Misuzu (SD style)
Mega Man: new scratch-made MvC style Mega Man in Rockman Famicom cover art pose.
Rushing Beat: New Lord J taunt, and improved fight stance sprite, improved Douglas Bild stand sprite
Streets of Rage: new Max Thunder sprite (back turned) in SoR 2 and 4 designs
Undercover Cops: The Zan (Claude) sprite I teased in the gallery icon since January is done and in the gallery, along with Matt, completing the playable crew!
Marvel Comics: Black Widow (semi-remake of an old sprite edit pose), Crossbones (boss in DECO’s Captain America and the Avengers), Firestar (assist char in Maximum Carnage, but not in this outfit)
– DC Comics: Green Lantern Hal Jordan (scratch-made remake of the edit-based pose I made for him 20 years ago)
G.I.JOE: all-new Baroness fight stance (referencing her old sprite edit pose from the early days of this site)

Mini-logos
Marvel Comics: Crossbones (Captain America #363 cover), the Defenders
Capcom: Shadaloo (SCRI logo) and Street Fighter x Tekken

All new sprites and mini-logos have been added to the Graphics Generators, along with the brand-new (and long overdue) Beat ‘Em Up arcade background!

The “Memory Lane” page was updated for the first time in almost 10 years, mainly trimming a few things down and adding info on the image generators and videos.


Thanks to an incredibly kind Ko-Fi donation, I put enough money together to buy the latest version of MOHO (Anime Studio)! For the first time in half a year, I have access to all that old work I did for videos again, so I can get back to those video Works-in-Progress. Being without AS Pro 10 had one positive effect, because it forced me to dig deeper into using Blender (even if it’s the pre-2.80 version with the old Blender engine) and building the clips inside Vegas (instead of just using it as a clip assembler). All of those things will be used for the next Sprite Showcade:

The first ever Superhero Sprite Showcade is up on ScrollBoss YouTube channel:

A huge thanks to AVPboy for letting me include that excellent CPS-2 sound remake of the Genesis/Mega Drive Batman’s first stage BGM! It sounds so good that I went back and sprited two thugs from that level that you saw in the first Batman clip.

The last two Superhero Sprite Showcases that people voted for last year are finally here in the same video, making it a Sprite Showcade, along with some bonus material at the end. I’m still locked out of my Anime Studio Pro 10 install, so the new clips were done with Blender, Magix Vegas, and combinations of both (like that quick panning shot with Iron Man, Hawkeye and Cap). The “pixel cover” format that made its debut in last month’s video are in this one, including tributes to some real comic covers. You’ll also see some sprites you haven’t seen before that aren’t in the sprite galleries or generators just yet.

DC Comics: Batman,Joker
Marvel: Iron Man and Whirlwind
EDIT 2020-03-27: Titanium Man added to the Marvel Gallery

All new sprites have been added to the GFX Generators! Whirlwind and Titanium Man are in the “Marvel Villains” character slot.

Still trying to take a bit of a break and give my drawing/spriting hand some rest, but still putting time in the lab, too.

Custom Sprites – Marvel: Storm (scratch remake of her Capcom Children of the Atom idle pose) and Monica Rambeau (resprited the pose inspired by Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 by John Romita Sr. and Jr.)
Custom Sprites – DC: DC: Bronze Tiger

mini-logo – DC: Bronze Tiger

All new logos added to the GFX Generators, where you can make graphics and fake screenshots like the one at the top of this post


Been experimenting in the lab with more video stuff, too, including an old idea I had for comic cover style clips for the Superhero Sprite Showcases/Showcades. Those clips were done in right in Magix Vegas because I don’t have my Anime Studio Pro 10 issues fixed yet. Since it’s Black History Month, it’s all Black Superheroes, and I’ll eventually do a full vid of this in the future.

Custom Sprites (DC Comics): Lois Lane, Captain Marvel, Elongated Man, Vixen, and Raven.
Mini-logos (DC Comics): Elongated Man and Raven

All new sprites and mini-logos were added to the main image generator, along with a new scratch-made Metropolis background.

Finally, here’s the Superman Sprite Showcase vid debuted a few days ago. You’ll see new sprites and animations of Superman, along with another new sprite of Lois and the new Metropolis background.

That last shot was for all the old-school cartoon fans out there.

custom sprites:
Friday the 13th: Jason (part III head crush)
Horror (other): Sadako (the Ring/Ringu)
Phantasm: Reggie and Rocky (part III outfits)
Marvel Comics: Carnage
DC Comics: Swamp Thing
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Baxter Stockman

mini-logos:
– Carnage added to Marvel Comics

New custom sprites and mini-logos were added to the main GFX Generator.

Tomorrow’s update drops on Halloween and you won’t want to miss it!
