19th Anniversary
July 19th, 2019 by PrimeOp

In the year 2000 AD, the first version of this website was cobbled together with a some brief game reviews, a few tips and some sprites. Now it’s pretty much just a lot of sprites. But how many sprites are really enough? There’s never enough! So here we go with the 19th Anniversary Update!

Final Fight: Maki (scratch-made FF2 fight stance)
IREM: Ryno (Ninja Baseball Bat Man)
Metroid: Ridley (classic)
NuChallenger: Lisa Santiago (new pose, better style than my 2014 sprite)
RAK Graphics(new page): Chakan the Forever Man
Marvel: The Kingpin, Nick Fury (scratch-made “Punisher” Capcom fight stance in three versions)
(added July 20th)


Denjin Makai: Amazoness, Silf, Valkyrie

Ryno was done for EddieMountainGoat, one of the main people I know who want to see the NBBM team finished! The female acrobats from Denjin Makai were added for SKB, another friend of the site!

By the way: I’ve had a chance to meet Robert A. Kraus, the creator of Chakan, a few times at events in the area this year and I was able to give him a printout of the Chakan sprite (and mini-logo) at the Youngstown Comic-Con a few weeks ago. Not only is he a great indy comic creator, writer and artist, but he’s a toy customizer and just a really cool person to talk to if you find him at a convention. If you’re like me and always wondered what the Chakan comics are like, check out the RAK Graphics site for a look at the Forever Man and more. There’s a mix of horror with sword & sorcery/fantasy and I’m glad I’m finally getting to read it.

Mini-logos: the Kingpin (Marvel gallery), Chakan (RAK Graphics gallery), Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (Midway/Williams gallery and DC gallery)

GFX Generators: Various improvements and bug fixes were made to the main engine, including allowing you to change text and font on the Picture Modification screen. I added that part a few days ago, but needed to make a few more fixes to it. Please let me know if you run into any problems with this.

the new sprites, mini-logos and more have been added, along with…
– other updated characters: Mega Man, Cammy, Chun-Li, Sakura, Vega, Apocalypse, Iceman, Rogue
– idle/fight stance added: Adon, Balrog, Blanka, Sagat, Blackheart, Captain America, Colossus, Gambit, Magneto, Juggernaut, Omega Red, Sentinel, Silver Samurai, Spider-Man, Shuma-Gorath, Storm (Marvel), Thanos
– fighter-sized screenstyles: Marvel Legends updated with X-Men Sauron-series box.

Here’s possibly the biggest part of the site update: Marvel vs. Capcom 1 endings have been added to the Fighter sprite generator!


Choose up to five characters, pick a background (65 so far), sprite layout (mostly based on actual endings) and frame, add your own text.

ScrollBoss Shop: All prints are on sale for the rest of July! 8×10 and 8×11 prints are $4.00 each!
11 x 17/11 x 14 prints $8.00 each! Sale prices are also in effect for the main Illmosis print page, which has more than game or pixel-related prints.

I may add more to the update through the weekend, so don’t be surprised if this post changes. There’s one more thing I’ve got, but I may not have it ready before the day is over, but I’ll add it here once it’s done. It’s about 95%, but I’m waiting on a gift from a guest contributor you should recognize.

Whether you’ve been here before or this is your first visit, thank you for stopping and I hope you enjoy this mess of a site!

Youngstown Comic Con 2019 + future site events
July 5th, 2019 by PrimeOp

The Youngstown Comic Con is this weekend!

I’ll only be there on Sunday the 7th, unfortunately, but I’ll have line art (including the new Carol Danvers/Warbird pic) and pixel art prints with me, along with the pixel art mini-prints:

I’ll have previews of other stuff, including pixel art that isn’t o the site yet, so be sure to stop by if you’re there!


There are two things coming up in the near future:

Two weeks from today, this site will be 19 years old. I know, that’s ridiculous, but it’s true. I’m still kinda waffling on what will be in the update, but there will definitely be some newness.

Then, on August 9th (8th month, 9th day), The Revenge of 1989 returns to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the best years of video games (and more)!

Shinobi, Golden Axe and a sneak preview of …
May 31st, 2019 by PrimeOp

I put up a poll on Twitter without saying what it was for and it was won by Shinobi, so here’s a mostly Shinobi update!

All-new sprites of Joe Musashi (O.G. Shinobi gear), Masked Ninja/Nakohara, Mongo and Crawler were added to the Shinobi gallery and new Zubaroka amazon sprites were added to the Golden Axe galleries. As usual, all these things were added to the GFX Image Generators where you can make screenshots like the one at the top of this post!

Well, that’s all for thi – – you know what? No. That’s not all. That’s not all at all.

I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time and it’s time to give you a taste. People, here’s the first segment of… episode 000

Later this summer, you will see the full Episode 000 of the ScrollBoss Sprite Showcade.

I’ll be at the Youngstown Comic-Con on July 7th (sorry, Sunday only this year). Come through both days, because they always have a great artist’s alley and lots of game-related stuff there!

That’s all for now. Expect a few announcements on a day that isn’t known for pranks. Right. So, until then…

Show and Provie
February 20th, 2019 by PrimeOp

Today’s update has brand new sprites of Black video game heroes, including a couple of new favorites, the return of a ScrollBoss original, and lots of new content for her section of the site!

Custom Sprites
Illmosis Network: Vernacula (one new pose added, 2 earlier updated)
Combat Core (new separate gallery) Squaz added
Mortal Kombat: Jax
Mystic Warriors (new gallery): Brad
River City Ransom: Provie from River City Ransom: Underground
Marvel Comics: Misty Knight (improved sprite)

By the way, I’m mad late with this, but huge congrats to MABManZ on Combat Core hitting the Nintendo Switch. Any fan of 3-D arena combat fighters like Power Stone should check it out on Switch or PC. River City Ransom: Underground, of course, remains dope and highly recommended to beat ’em up fiends.

As usual, all new sprites have beed added to the main GFX Generator, where you can make your own pics with a bunch of game and custom-made sprites and graphics.

Info Center – Irritated at the current state of the sections with which she shares a name and also has to help maintain, Vernacula threatened insisted that the section got some updates this time. New definitions have been added (amazon, arcade, console, Neo Geo, parallax scrolling) and many definitions were improved (crowd control, fighting game, mega crash, palette swap, pro-wrestler, sprite edit), including a few getting new main pictures and support for animated main pics. I also made some improvements to the Info Center code itself and I’ll keep working to streamline it more so I can move more site sections to that format.
