Endless Duck
Princess Peach

The Princess Peach (from Nintendo’s Super Mario series) pic is finished **wipes brow**, complete with an appropriate background. So that’s two All AmeriCon requests down, one to go (and I just started inking the third). Meanwhile, from my ScrollBoss site, Endless Duck, a character from my ScrollBoss video game site, returns to menace anyone dumb enough to cross his path.

Reminder: the sale on prints (8×10 and 8×11 prints are $5.00 each, 11 x 17 prints $8.00 each) ends Friday, June 23rd, so you’ve got a bit more than a week to save on ’em!

Princess Peach

The second of three requests from past All AmeriCon conventions is here with a new Princess Peach pic! That’s much easier to type than it is to say. I’m not 100% sure what I’ll have ready for the show (I’ve got one more request pic sketched and one replacement of an older pic started), but I’ll try my best to get it done in time AND make it look cool.

By the way, the All AmeriCon (Facebook page here) has a promo up on YouTube now:

Also, those sale prices on prints (8×10 and 8×11 prints are $5.00 each, 11 x 17 prints $8.00 each) will end Friday, June 23rd of this year. It was going to be next week, but I didn’t realize until now that I forgot to remove the “until April 1Xth” from the sale sign on the page when I brought the sale back. I owe you a week for messing up like that!

I also have a Ko-fi page for accepting tips. Things have gotten a bit tighter with less work hours and I’ve had to spend more time doing commissions than working on the sites, so any small amount will be appreciated!

If you’re into pixel art, I just had an update on ScrollBoss with some new sprites of old side-scroller villains, including Ton Pooh from Strider and Marvel vs. Capcom!

More new pics will hit next week, so stay tuned!

Spider-Man (Miles Morales)

Two updates in the same month? Trust me, I’m more shocked by that than anyone.

The Miles Morales Spider-Man pic now has a background, though it may get modified if I have time before the convention in July. I’ve got pencils for two more pics, but I also have a lot of commission and site work to do and don’t know how many new pieces I’ll have done in time for the All AmeriCon convention this year. Still, we’ll see!

Speaking of the All AmeriCon, there’s a month and a few days to go until that convention hits Youngstown, Ohio’s Covelli Centre for two days!

You can get more info at the Facebook page and these links here and here for the event!

Spider-Man (Miles Morales)

Things are still busy on the commission front, but managed to get the shading done for the Miles Morales Spider-Man pic. No background yet, but I’ll get there.

I’ll be hanging out at All American Comics in Warren, OH (check ’em out on Facebook and Yelp) this Saturday for the Free Comic Book Day event. I’ll have some prints (not everything, still need to restock) with me and they’ll be at the same sale price I’ve got going on the site, so you won’t even have to pay shipping if you can make it there. This shop is a huge reason why I didn’t completely drop comics back in the 90s, so check them out (or the Boardman location) if you’re in Northeastern Ohio!

I’m still working on commissions, with 9/16 of one batch and 2/10 of another done, so things will be kinda slow on these sites for a while. I’ve got a bunch of ideas sketched out, so I’ll be back with a vengeance once I’m done with that commission work!

Spider-Man (Miles Morales)

Dang, I haven’t been here since November of last year? Sorry. it’s not the worst gap between updates on this site, BUT STILL. Today’s newness is a Miles Morales Spidey pic. “He’s drawing kinda recent characters now?” It was a request, so that explains that! It’s in flat color mode for now, but will be finished either this or next month.

What I’ve been up to since last November: first, a ton of updates on ScrollBoss since then, including lots of finishing touches for that site’s image generators and some video work (even a 2016 recap video).

I’ve also been doing a lot of fighting game-style pixel art commissions, and I’ve opened up more commission slots. Check out that commissions page for all the details

I’m putting all line art and pixel art prints back on sale again until further notice. 8×10 and 8×11 prints are $5.00 each and 11 x 17 prints $8.00 each!

2016 Fighting game-style sprites of NutrollFighting game-style sprites of Hazelle Spellcaste

It’s the 12th anniversary of the Illmosis site! Between sinus problems and a month-long stretch of trying to churn out horror sprites for the DangerTerrorHorrorThon on ScrollBoss, I’m a little tired. There’s still some newness to be had with the Hazelle sprite seen on the other site (but with a new, simple background) and an all-new Nutroll sprite. Both gallery pages have .GIFs made from different points of progress as I worked on the sprites.

Now that the big code rewrite of the GFX Generators on ScrollBoss is finally done and the DangerTerrorHorrorThon there is over, I can give this place some of the attention it’s needed for a long time. Sorry for the absence and I’ll try to breath some life back into this spot!

So I’ve been doing to DangerTerrorHorrorThon event over on ScrollBoss for a few days, but I decided to put one of my own characters into the mix on the final day:

There’s Hazelle, my old Halloween mascot, right in the middle and with a slightly modified outfit.

I also made a portrait of Blade:

I still suck at likenesses, but people seem to be digging that pic so far. Happy Halloween!

Sprite of Link from Legend of Zelda series of games by NintendoPixel art group shot of DC's Justice Leauge

I didn’t want to get ring rust with the pixels, so I had to dip back into the dot art side of things, and I have two pics to show for it. One is of the Justice League, though you may have seen some of the sprites when I posted them on ScrollBoss. The other is based on the ending for the original Legend of Zelda.

Don’t forget, the All AmeriCon convention is on the way! See their Facebook page for more details!

Street Fighter's Chun-Li leaps into action

A new pic of Chun-Li from Street Fighter has been added to the gallery! It’s been a while since I scribbled a Street Fighter and Chun-Li just seemed like the right character to draw. I also added the original sketch to the Black Panther pic I drew earlier this month. I still need to get test prints of both pics before adding them to the prints section here.

Chun-Li here will probably be the last color pin-up I finish before the All-AmeriCon convention in July. Cue the flyer image!

Note that I said that’s all for line art, because I plan to get at least one more pixel art print ready. I finished a few new sprites in-between all the new line art pics I’ve done for the past few weeks and some will probably be used in those prints. I’ll keep you updated on what I’ll have at the convention, but I’ll try to have some free coloring pages and flyers to give out, plus previews of new stuff to show if you stop by my table.

I’ll be back next week with more stuff! **claps and points like Chuck Barris**
