Quick, janky Detective Comics #27 pose sprite with no passenger. It’s a bit too late for the 75th anniversary, BUT STILL.

Pretty freaking sweet!

Thanks, Pix!

Celebrating 500 followers! To commemorate this glorious occasion, I offer wallpapers from some of the most amazing (and beautiful) games ever created—the original Metal Slug releases. These are easily the most difficult wallpapers I’ve created so far, because of the gut-wrenching decisions about what to try and include from each game. I’m still not sure I’m satisfied with them, and I may never be. Metal Slug as a series just aren’t the kind of games you can envision in a single wallpaper. I could create two of these for every stage in each game and still not come close to capturing all the detail, nuance and personality these games possess. And something no amount of wallpapers could ever dispay is the animation quality. Enemies, characters and items each have dozens, sometimes hundreds of frames of animation. It is truly crazy. There is a reason that these titles are often considered the pinnacle of 2D sprite-based graphics.

Including Metal Slug X may feel like cheating since it’s a remake of Metal Slug 2, but it did feature different items, enemies and stage palettes and even if the general layout was the same as 2, I still call it more inspired than Metal Slug 4 (ptui!) Remember that these are artistic impressions and do not represent the actual enemy, item and level combinations in the game (I’m especially guilty of this with Metal Slug 3, which is just a big mish-mash of all the alien activity from various levels.)

As always, Tumblr scales down the size of these images so in order to get the full version of these wallpapers (with properly-distributed scanlines), use the links below. These have also been added to my online wallpaper gallery.

Some of the reward art I liked from the missions in Dragon’s Crown, the use  of color is flawless.

On a side note Owl bears should exist, that’s a combination the makers of Avatar the last Airbender would be proud of :P

Sorry for the low activity level here, but I’ve been getting Windows 7 set up on my system this week, a process that’s eating up my time like crazy.  Part of the fun is finding out just how much older programs are mangled by a newer system and some of the art and game tools I use are really up there in age. It’s going to take a while for me to adjust, but there will still be a site update in early April. That mess of pixels over there is a clip from a portrait you’ll see added to the GFX Generators in that update.

I was going through old folders earlier and found some things. Old graphics tags from when I scanned/converted comics, sigs, sprites, banners, and the like. Even included the avatar I use on some forums I made using my old artist buddy Chinua’s art he did of me. I decided to share some of this stuff here. These are positive memories and I need to focus on the good things.

CLAW better hide because the Mercenary Kings are on the move RIGHT NOW on Steam PC and Mac!!

Mercenary Kings is our biggest project yet : a 1-year project eventually turning into a 1.5+ year production. Sharing it with you in it’s full, completed glory is thrill for all of us here at…

The Game Cube can be hit with a sledgehammer and work just fine. The Nintendo DS was specifically designed to be able to survive a 1.5 meter (five foot) drop onto solid concrete without breaking, and one of the company’s bigwigs wouldn’t let it go past the design phase until the design team could guarantee it could survive the drop at least 10 times. In fact, Nintendo products have such a reputation for being impossible to break through normal means that they spawned the term “Nintendium”—an all-purpose phrase given to pieces of technology that survive extreme punishment. For example, take the Gulf War Game Boy, an original Game Boy console that survived having a freaking bomb dropped on it.

Nintendo never advertises their products as being durable, they don’t brag about their Game Boys being bomb-proof or their consoles being tough enough to survive being hit by a car. They just expect their customers to be human and include features to prepare for that humanity. While other companies decide that they’re nice by including a cover to protect the screen of the $600 phone you just bought in case you drop it, Nintendo just builds a device that can survive being dropped in the first place and doesn’t make a big deal about it. Because that’s how a real company does business.
