The Revenge of 1989 – 2018 edition and Horror vs. Horror 2 revelation
August 9th, 2018 by PrimeOp

I’ve been working on a secret project (both pixel and drawn art) for someone else lately, but I couldn’t let this day pass without the Revenge of 1989 rising from its grave once again, even for a small update. The sprite count may not large, but most of the sprites are big enough to make up for it!

Custom Sprites:
Double Dragon: Mysterious Warrior (DD2 NES)
Golden Axe: a new Death Adder sprite
Strider: a new Solo sprite

All new sprites have been added to the GFX Generators, where you can make your own graphics and fake screenshots like the one above!


I also made progress on the next Horror vs. Horror print. The new sprite of Jason Voorhees was shown a while back and you’ve seen previews of the select roster (everyone from the original print returns!), but now it’s time to show you a bigger hint of what’s coming your way. Let’s roll that hastily made promo vid.


Looks like we’ve ended up with more questions (and question marks) than answers. Stay tuned for more horror as it develops.

18th Anniversary
July 19th, 2018 by PrimeOp

18 years ago, I started this site with at the public library with Tripod’s free site builder, screenshots from the PC version of Sega’s Smash Pack (made on a friend’s computer, didn’t even have my own PC yet), and a bunch of tips and tricks I’d scrawled in a notebook. Seemed like it’d be a fun thing to do on the internet. Multiple hosting moves and weird ideas later.

The theme of today’s update is… every theme, including the lack of a theme. Characters from games, a few from comics, some 1989 icons (to rep the Revenge of 1989), an obvious crossover face-off (outside of Crossup Beatdown), a horror villain (before October’s DangerTerrorHorrorThon), an eighties cartoon character (before the usual Toy and Cartoon update near Christmas), a new original character for the site and the return of a character born in the long defunct Minus World section. It’s like a Whitman’s chocolate assortment of this site’s usual habits, so here’s the map that lets you avoid that one weird cream candy that makes you scrunch up in the face.

Custom Sprite additions
Bomberman: all-new Bomberman action pose
Final Fight: Cody (Street Fighter V stance)
Megaman: Bombman
Shinobi series: Joe Musashi (Revenge of Shinobi title screen)
Sonic the Hedgehog: Knuckles the Echidna (classic)
Konami: Cyber Ninja (Metal Gear Solid)
Toaplan: the Snow Bros. Nick & Tom
DC Comics: Harley Quinn
Marvel Comics: Beast and Hawkeye
Toys and ‘Toons: Cheetara of the Thundercats (1980s)
Horror: Pamela Voorhees new (and better) sprite
Illmosis/ScrollBoss: Endless Duck and Maddie Tenay (ScrollBoss mascot from the upcoming movie section)

All new sprites have been added to the main GFX Generator where you can make your own pics and fake screenshots! Other things added to the generators today:
– characters added: KoF Sports team added, Mojo (Marvel)
– characters updated: Mai Shiranui

While I’m at it, all prints on the site are on sale until the end of the month!


all 8 x 10/ 8.5 x 11 on the site are now $4!


11×17 inch prints are $8!

That’s the main part of the update. Some small preview additions to the Vs. Horror pt. 2 pixel print, an unfinished promo video and a thank you message are behind the cut. So, if you don’t read that, I’ll put an extra “Thank you” here to let you know that you’re appreciated!

He… wasn’t a very good swimmer

“You see, Jason was my son… and today is his birthday…”

Just a bit of pixel art to hold you over until next week!

Mega Man pic and Youngstown Comic Con
June 30th, 2018 by PrimeOp

As posted earlier this week on the main Illmosis site, I finally drew new inked artwork of classic-era Mega Man!


That new Mega Man pic has just been added to the prints area of the shop page!


The Youngstown Comic Con takes place at Youngstown, Ohio’s Covelli Center next weekend, July 7th and 8th! In case you’ve missed the earlier site posts here, I’ll be in Artist Alley again, but, sadly, only on Sunday the 8th.

Don’t worry, it’s not just about comic books, as a lot of the other artists and vendors will have video game merch, and there’s always tons of video game cosplay going on. In fact, some of my earnings last year didn’t make it out of the building because I bought a loose copy of Gauntlet IV for the Genesis!

I’ll have a lot of the prints you see on the site along with the mini pixel art prints that I only have at conventions:

They’re only $1 each and… hmmm… a few seem to have a some sprites and backgrounds that aren’t on the site yet. Yes, a few of ’em find their way into future site updates.


Arcade Quartermaster just dropped its July update with a trio of beat ’em up shrines: Legionnaire, P.O.W. and, a personal favorite of mine, Karate Blazers!


That’s all for now. See you in July!

Mini-pause for the cause
May 15th, 2018 by PrimeOp

I need to work on new prints to be ready for the Youngstown Comic-Con (I’ll only have a table there on the Sunday the 8th), so ScrollBoss will be KINDA quiet until after the convention. Conveniently, this site’s 18th anniversary will hit a little over a week after that. There will probably be small updates here and there, especially when I get pixel art or game-related prints done.

Until next time, here are a few previews:


The long-awaited Raging Justice is out now! I bought it for PC/Steam and had fun playing it. There are tons of nice little combat touches, including knocking characters into the background, enemy arrests (with bonus points for catching foes who have warrants out for them). No, it’s not a stat-building, free-roaming game like a lot of other modern Walk ‘n Brawls, but I know a lot of other people who prefer arcade-length games; the can be played through with a visiting friend and short enough for a non-marathon stream. Check this out if that sounds like your kind of party!
