GFX Generator: Marvel Legends and fixes
December 14th, 2017 by PrimeOp

I still have a small toy-related update planned for later, but here’s a little something I figured I’d add to the site right now:

The recent Marvel Legends boxes have been added to the main GFX Generator. I posted teasers for this in different places months ago, but I just finished a few things that made ’em ready for the site. There are more box set-ups, including some that let you choose a mini-logo for the bottom of the box. I’ll add more if people like how these turn out.

BTW: I got hooked on Marvel Legends again thanks to the Spider-Woman, Captain America (with Capwolf head) and Whirlwind (because of that Avengers beat ’em up). They became ridiculously hard to find around here back in the Toy Biz days, so I gave up on ’em, but ended up getting into Hasbro’s smaller Marvel Universe line. Between their becoming easier to find and using classic designs again, I’m buying more ML’s. I hope they keep putting out that Marvel Retro line, too (I still need that retro Iron Man, since he has the armor from the Data East beat ’em up).

Other things in the update:
1.) Improved the sprite of G.I.JOE’s Grunt
2.) fixed “the Holograms” (of Jem and the Holograms) so it shows up in the GFX Generator’s Toys & Toons section. It’s only Kimber for now, but she may have some company in a few days.


Fellow pixel artist Mr. Gilder has a brand-new site with his work, including those beautiful wooden pixel sprites. Please give that site a visit if you’re a fan of pixel art!


Yes, I saw the Street Fighter V trailer with Cody in it. Believe it or not, I was working on something appropriate when the news hit the internet:

You’ll see what that’s about either right at the end of the year or early 2018.

Justice and Punishment
November 17th, 2017 by PrimeOp

The Karnov/Bad Dudes update from a few days ago wasn’t all I had for show and tell for this week. Shamelessly timed with their live-action premieres this week, it’s time for visits from the Justice League and the Punisher!

Custom Sprites:
DC Comics: Green Arrow, Zatanna, Hawkman, 90’s Superman Red & Blue
Marvel Comics: the Punisher

All new sprites were also added to the GFX Generator.

Shameless plug reminder: I’ve got a Justice League pixel art print with the old-school line-up in the ScrollBoss Shop


pixelart Justice League – v.1 (10×8 & 11×14 inches)


Heads-up:

Zvitor’s “Justice League United” OpenBoR game hit last week and is available at zvitor.com (of course). I played through it, but don’t expect me to spoil anything for you! Here’s Zvitor’s promo vid for it:

River City Ransom: Underground is on sale for $9.99 on Steam until November 20th, 2017! I’ve been disappointed by a lot of video game comebacks, but I’ll never pass up a chance to praise RCR:U. There’s a character for just about every play style and has the depth of a one-on-one fighting game. If you need a story as an excuse to have a good time, don’t worry, there’s a story in there, too. If that isn’t enough for you, they’re getting ready to make the game moddable. It’s easily one of the best beat ’em ups to hit the streets in years and well worth a buy.

Not all the new things this week are bleak or hostile. This Wednesday was the debut of Tiny Bird Garden, a mobile game by Super Retro Duck that lets you befriend the cutest crew of birds you’ll ever meet. If that sounds fun to you, check out the game’s site and give the game some love!

Dragon Ninja reinforcements
November 15th, 2017 by PrimeOp

Karnovember is in full swing on Tumblr and Twitter! It’s time for this site to pay a little tribute to the legend that is Karnov and a few of his friends.

New customs sprites of Karnov, Zako Ninja, and Buki Ninja, and improved Kunoichi sprites have been added to the Bad Dudes gallery and the main GFX Generator.

Speaking of the Custom Sprite galleries, I did a lot of behind-the-scenes work to just about all of them and a few look a bit different. Metroid and Transformers now have their own galleries and other games will get their own pages in future updates. I’m working on something that will replace a lot of the coding on this site, but I’ll explain that once the first upgrade hits.

Stay tuned, there’ll be more small updates very soon!
