Black Superheroes: Bronze Tiger, Storm & Monica Rambeau
February 27th, 2021 by PrimeOp

Still trying to take a bit of a break and give my drawing/spriting hand some rest, but still putting time in the lab, too.

Custom Sprites – Marvel: Storm (scratch remake of her Capcom Children of the Atom idle pose) and Monica Rambeau (resprited the pose inspired by Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16 by John Romita Sr. and Jr.)
Custom Sprites – DC: DC: Bronze Tiger

mini-logo – DC: Bronze Tiger

All new logos added to the GFX Generators, where you can make graphics and fake screenshots like the one at the top of this post


Been experimenting in the lab with more video stuff, too, including an old idea I had for comic cover style clips for the Superhero Sprite Showcases/Showcades. Those clips were done in right in Magix Vegas because I don’t have my Anime Studio Pro 10 issues fixed yet. Since it’s Black History Month, it’s all Black Superheroes, and I’ll eventually do a full vid of this in the future.

2021 kickoff
January 29th, 2021 by PrimeOp

Starting the year with some replacements for old sprite edits and some long overdue and requested characters.

Custom Sprites:
Rastan Saga (new separate gallery): Rastan (new scratch-made sprite based on his stance from the first game)
Ninja Gaiden: Bloody Malth
Undercover Cops: Rosa Felmondes/Blaze
Marvel Comics: Iron Man – classic armor in pose from cover #126
Movies: RoboCop

Sprite Rips:
Name Graphics: Select/Vs. from Vampire Savior-Darkstalkers 3, also includes the dozens of custom names I made for this site’s image generators (and a few that are still unused) by cutting, pasting, and rearranging the preexisting letters. Most of the extras are horror-themed. It also includes a gradient pattern file to use as a layer or fill when you make your own custom name graphics.

GFX Generators: today’s new sprites have been added to the appropriate generators (mostly the main generator), along with…
– the main generator’s side panel now has more short cuts so you spend a bit less time scrolling. I’ll continue to work on this and add it to the other generators later.


In December 2020, ownership of the Anime Studio/MOHO (the animation program I’ve been using since 2015 to render most of my video clips) changed to Lost Marble, which will be a really good thing from what I’ve read. What isn’t good is how SmithMicro didn’t give any warning about how the software ownership verification on your computer would stop working if you didn’t update immediately… which I only found out after it happened to me because they sent no heads-up e-mail of any kind. That means all my work in AS is either temporarily halted or just completely dead and will have to be redone. So I went back to the lab with other tools.

The 3-D shots were done in Blender with techniques I was experimenting with before I got Anime Studio. The 2-D Hall of Armor shot was made in Magix Vegas, the video editor I usually use to edit, assemble and render full videos, with layers of PNG and GIF files. So I’ll be spending a lot of time in the lab getting these alternate techniques down so I can get the videos going again.


Also, I’m taking a break for a month or two. I’m still very tired, mentally and physically, from how the last half of 2020 went for me offline, so I probably need to get some actual rest. My plans for taking commissions are going to be on indefinite hold, because I think I’m too tired to do those effectively.

Future updates additions to the Toyboss section, like my new Golden Axe Skeletons by Storm Collectables (lucked up and caught the restock on Bluefin) and the Articulated Icons Ninjas (most are 50% off until the end of January!) I finally got after fiending for them for a while. I highly recommend those ninjas, especially because they’re built for martial arts poses and customization.

Merry Christmas
December 24th, 2020 by PrimeOp

Merry Christmas from Miss Santa (really, Wonder Woman, but don’t tell anybody), Santa Gilius, Haggar Claus, Santa Bison, and Kram-Poison (idea by @Myruh_Ret2 on Twitter last year) and I, PrimeOp. May it, or any other holiday you celebrate this time of year, be a good one!

All of those sprites have been added to the main image generator (which I used to make that screenshot). Yes, even the older sprites you’ve seen before, because I kept forgetting to add them.

Toys and ‘Toons 2020
December 18th, 2020 by PrimeOp

Shake a hand, shake a hand, because it’s that time of year again! I can’t afford to give out toys to all of my friends, so I make an update based on my favorite toys (mostly from the 80s), including toys based on preexisting licenses. This year, G.I.JOE and Masters of the Universe made some strong comebacks, even if some were ridiculously hard to find on store shelves. That’s enough from me, go open your presents!

G.I.JOE: Clutch (v.1 toy, v.1 comic, v.2 tan recolor)
Street Fighter: Chun-Li, Ken and M.Bison (all G.I.JOE figure v.1, made from parts of preexisting Joe and Cobra bodies with new heads)
Masters of the Universe: Zodac (last figure needed for original line-up of figures), Hordak (highly-requested)
Thundercats: Tygra (finishing the original crew of adult Thundercats who weren’t ghosts, sorry Jaga)

All new sprites added to the main image generator!


Whatever it is that you’re celebrating this time of year, I hope it’s a great time for you!

BTW: this WON’T be the last site update for the year… stay tuned…

Karnovember 2020
November 24th, 2020 by PrimeOp


Custom Sprites:
Karnov: the RoboCop Karnov
RCR/Kunio-Kun NES: Karnov (classic)

These sprites were added to the image generators along with Clown (sprited him a while ago, somehow forgot to add him to the generators) and 4 Fighter’s History Dynamite/Karnov’s Revenge stages: Marstrius, Ray, Ryoko and Zazzie.

LordBBH has the Karnovember Fighter’s History Dynamite Tournament 11/21/2020 video up in case you missed it last weekend. I got there kinda late (and dropped a $5 into the prize pot), but there was a lot of wild stuff to be seen. Watching the tourney also reminded me to get more of the game’s stages into the generator. Congrats to everyone involved for putting together a solid tourney!


(edit: sale prices changed)
‘Tis the season to put on sales, so this is a reminder that the print sale in the site’s shop is still going on!
8×10 (and similar size prints) are $4 each, buy 2 and get one free!
17×11 (and similar size prints) $8!
Buy some as a gift for loved ones, total strangers, enemies, or even yourself. I’m not here to judge!
