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
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!
Just a little something to observe the miracle that is Karnovember. One new (“BAL-LOOOOOON!”) and one old sprite that I didn’t post until now (classic Karnov fireball) have been added to the Custom Sprite gallery and the Image Generators!
Also, I uploaded the Karnovember logo I made this afternoon in a .ZIP, with a bigger transparent .PNG and the SVG vector file from Inkscape. It needs work, so feel free to improve/fix it before using it for your own stuff. Download it from this link!
The 2021 wrap-up is coming this December, stay tuned, especially if you like mutants!
Metroid, Marvel, and mini-logos
November 12th, 2021 by PrimeOp
– Metroid: Samus Aran (Metroid Dread) and Kraid (Super Metroid design, NES-ish height) added
– Marvel Comics: Living Laser scratch-made sprite added
1.) I added the Comic Books hub to the bottom of any comic book-related pages, just to make it easier.
2.) Living Laser replaces the last of my old Marvel Villain sprite edits made from Capcom sprites. I cleared the DC Comics villains last year, so now it’s down to getting scratch-made sprites to replace the last of the heroes, with six for Marvel and six for DC. I’ve got line art drawn for a few of them, so finishing them up will be one of my 2022 side-missions.
Mini-logos: Grim Reaper (who got a new sprite a few weeks ago) and Living Laser get new mini-logos in the Marvel gallery
Anyway, all new sprites and mini-logos were also added to the main image generator, where I made the image at the top of this post
I’m currently doing some paid pixel art work right now (commissions aren’t open again, this was set-up long in advance), so the things here will be slow for a bit.
With social media still going downhill and the likelihood that Web 3.0 will be built to shut out more people than it’ll let in (and even more likely to exploit people as much as possible), I find myself being more grateful to see the independent sites updating.
Dire has been working up a storm over at both the West Mansion Splatterhouse shrine and the OPFCG blog. It’s more than adding things to the sites (and there’s a lot of newness in West Mansion), but talking about things like his revived Turbografx-16 collection, finding his Metal Slug fan site in the Internet Archive, and more.
mini-logos: I dipped back and made mini-logos for characters who didn’t get them during the weekend, including…
– DC Comics: Croc (Killer Croc’s logo for the ’85 Who’s Who)
– McFarlane: Violator
– Movies: Tiffany (Child’s Play)
– Music: Geto Boys
– Television: Movie Macabre (Elvira’s original TV show logo)
DangerTerrorHorrorThon 2021, October 31st
October 31st, 2021 by PrimeOp
The DangerTerrorHorrorThon 2021 dies tonight!
October 31st, 2021
Custom Sprites: Friday the 13th – LJN game heroes (Crissy, Debbie, George, Laura, Mark, Paul) redone Halloween – Michael Myers (choking Bob added) Music – Scarface/Brad (Geto Boys) in the cane, the black suit, and the Diary of a Madman. Halloween fell on a weekend, had to do it.
One last thing: a short horror-themed video! It’s just over a minute, either brand-new and updated clips!
Arcade Quartermaster updated with new shrines for Sinistar and Missile Command! A gigantic howling demon-faced death star flying at you is considered horror in my opinion.
The biggest game site surprise of the year: Dire has resurrected the West Mansion Splatterhouse site! One of the earliest fan sites to haunt the web, the site is so legendary that even Namco acknowledged it! Check out the link to see Dire’s message about what he’s been up to and the future of the site.
