Bubble Bobble was the first game I ever played in the arcades and it pretty much decided what my career was going to be. So I thought I’d try out some Taito inspired characters. There’s 100 all up :)
Boba Fett, the infamous jetpack-jumping sarlacc snack and criminally neglected badass from the “Star Wars” saga, now given a much needed update.
He’s also one of the many stickers you can get as part of the big “Star Wars” sticker set giveaway going on right now - so hop on it !
I did a thing. I haven’t sprited in probably 5+ years or so, much less something completely from scratch, so I’m pretty stoked off of this.
The main site will get a really small update this week, but one thing I had to make was the long overdue ShiftyLook version of Wonder Momo. Fans of that comic might recognize that sprite’s pose from something else. One of the few things that suck about running my site is that I don’t have enough time to enjoy what other people make, and I never had enough time to read enough ShiftyLook comics. Sadly, the ShiftyLook site will be closing up shop soon, and I hope they find a way to continue those stories in offline form. I’ll be picking up the trades, especially the excellent Bravoman revival.
Because seriously, you cannot tell me you don’t see this sort of thing when you listen to the Game Boy RoboCop title theme!
Robocop, nigh indestructible (and very badass) law enforcement cyborg and titular protagonist of the cult "Robocop" franchise, now given a rather fetching little avatar head based on his iconic helm.
Peace, Justice, a rather large gun and a bulletproof chassis make quite the convincing argument against crime, wouldn’t you say ?
Those who watched the original Filmation series should recognize this pose. I remember being irritated that I’d sketched him out and made him so thin-looking compared to how the toys usually look. I usually have to horizontally stretch my sprite scans a bit, and you can really see that here. This was rushed and I forgot to take process shots when I was making the linework look more, er, spritey? I don’t even care if that’s not a word. This would be a perfect Time Over animation if he were in a fighting game.
New River City Ransom sprites (Alex, Ryan, and the Dragon Twins) and new Shantae outfits and palettes added to the ScrollBoss GFX Generators in honor of the Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and River City Ransom: Underground Kickstarters. Shantae is working on worthy stretch goals and the RCR:U Kickstarter is about $30,000 away from being funded with five days left, so please them them out if you can.

Isometric Lego pieces. YAY
Dragon’s Crown heroes (Amazon, Dwarf, Elf, Fighter, Sorceress, Wizard)
I changed the fighter’s armor from gray to blue while working on this group shot with the gray background.
