Finally putting out some pixel print things I’ve been scheming to make for a looong time. First up, the easy part. First up, as teased off and on for over a year, a print of the winner’s podium from Street Fighter II, completely sprited from scratch:

That sprite is now available in the shop! But maybe some of you would rather see someone else in those podium spots. That’s the other thing I’m announcing: Custom prints (a.k.a. SelectPlayer):


For a bit more money than a print, you can commission me to create a customized print! Choose a background and any sprites I’ve made from scratch that you see in the custom sprite galleries (and a few that aren’t in the galleries) for your print. Here’s a quick example:

The basics info is up on the new page for the SelectPlayer prints. Yeah, this is what the “Player Select” in the old X-Men print meant, and that’s how long I’ve been trying to get this together. More background options and sprites made for the prints will be added as time goes on, so stay tuned!

One more thing: since the price of shipping prints from my print supplier has gone up, I’ve temporarily adjusted prices and added deals to offset that a bit for you. 8×10 (and similar size) prints are now $5 each, buy 2 and get one free. Also, buy one 17×11 (and similar size prints) and get one regular 8×10 print free.


Another update will hit the site before September ends. Frequent site visitors who use the Image Generators and look at the SelectPlayer backgrounds may notice a background that they haven’t seen before. You’ll see that background again in the next update, along with some sprite related to it. You’ve got a few days to guess!

Beating River City Ransom: Underground this week kept me in the mood for spriting more characters in the original NES game’s style. I’m still trying to find a balance between sticking in that original game’s look and trying more unique things like RCR:U did. Today’s batch features do-overs for sprites I’d edited from RCR sprites years ago (the Lee Bros. and some Street Fighter stalwarts), other teenage characters (including five with attitude), a few clownish characters (including my own character, Nutroll) and one man who will pity these fools.

also, one character that I thought I’d done for the Megaman NES style finally gets his turn:

You can now have such a thing as Thunderball Fists!

They’ve been added to the River City Ransom custom sprite page and, of course, the Fake Screenshot generator.

2014 only has one Friday the 13th, so here’s an update with some dangerous masked characters who like to work with sharp objects without being an annoying Spanish ninja. Jason got a sprite and mini-logo in a similar update that hit last December, so it’s time to give him a bit more this time. Other characters wearing goalie masks (or masks similar to them) also get a bit of attention today.

GFX Generators – the following characters were updated:
– Jason Voorhees: Street Fighter Alpha (Zero) 3 Vs. portrait and namegfx, Friday the 13th (LJN box) mini-logo.
– Rick Taylor: Wanpaku Graffiti-inspired sprite and SFA 3 portrait (edited from Jason’s) added.
– Crime Fighters – Enemies: Boss 2 (the goalie-masked enemy) sprite added.
– Juli, Juni, and the Dolls: Decapre gets some sprite edits and SFA3 Vs. screen portraits while Juli and Juni get a few more sprites.

By the way, Friday the 13th for the NES, Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti for the Famicom, and Crime Fighters all debuted in 1989, so this update is also part of the Revenge of 1989. See how that all worked out? That rarely happens here, so enjoy it while you can!

Edit: Today’s Illmosis update has the lineart for Jason’s SFa3 portrait along with a Black Widow (Marvel) picture!
