Just some pixels I made semi-recently :)
The first, a zombie mermaid parody of Venus at Her Mirror by Diego Velazquez that I made for the Secret Santa activity at the Pixelation forum (13 colours):
A sprite of a mechanical elephant made of a barrel, diver’s helmet, pipes, and rubber hoses, done for a pixel joint challenge (15 colours):
And a quick portrait, also done for a pixel joint challenge (15 colours). Not crazy about this one, though I do like parts of it:

Well, just some news that we have just switched servers and so this site was down for a while. But we’re back now, with a faster, better(?) blog ;) The reason for the switch? HostGator couldn’t handle the traffic for the IndieStone when Lemmy & Binky (now with Nick) announced Project Zomboids, and when we relied on them the most they could not deliver the service (and not only pulled down and locked the site, but displayed a 404 error which made it look as though the site was not legit, a HUGE problem when money is involved). HostGator can serve basic needs, but if you want your site to have any level of popularity, I cannot recommend them anymore. Hence the server change.
But enough about that!
I was cleaning up some of my files on the server and came across some sprites that I made a good while back for the TIGSource Assembly competition, in which artists/musicians made assets that were used by programmers to make games. I thought I’d put them up here, so anyone can download them. Yup–they are free for use in any game projects requiring a violent mushroom (although credit should be given, and a link to my site is highly appreciated), no need to ask permission :)
Animations and a tile demo up here, and the spritesheet and tilesheets are after the break for your downloading needs :)

Just some practice sprites I made in the PAWS style. 13 or 14 colours with transparency, I can’t remember ;)
Speaking of PAWS, if you were wondering where it is… it took a largish break in production due to a spiffy game called Privates, by friend Zombie Cow Studios (the other members of the PAWS team were the ones working on it, btw–I was just a scientific fact checker ;) ). I have been that assured PAWS will be finished some day!

In the heat of summer day
Walks the Lady of Decay.
Her skin is pale like gone-off milk,
Her clothes are made of rotted silk,
Millipedes surround her face,
Her dress is trimmed with dirty lace.
With maggot pet and fungi’d hair,
She parades around the square.
She’s a sight from head to toes,
But whilst you look, hold your nose!
For nothing festers like Decay
In the heat of summer day.
14 colours, and the poem was written spur-of-the-moment when submitting to PixelJoint ;)

Some small pixels I’ve done lately (and not so lately ;) )
First, a little beagle puppy holding a Cintiq stylus I made for Captain Binky’s birthday! (waaaay back in April!)
And now some minis, which I’m showing at 2x here so they can be seen more clearly :)
Ghostbusters for Nickenstien’s birthday! (also waaaay back in April!)
Some Dan and Ben sprites from Time Gentlemen, Please! (with accurate walkcycles! ;) )
And some Muse fanart! (made before my disappointment with their last album :( Giving it another chance as I type)

…an INTERSPECIES dinner date! Think of the herds are saying! :o
Based on the work of the awesmoe artist iLKke, although it didn’t really come through in the end. I still like it for what it is, though :)

It’s a little known fact that the high mortality rate of princesses kidnapped by dragons is not due to burns, being eaten, or as collateral damage from rescues gone awry. No, the majority of princesses die from acute cases of boredom, as dragons insist on playing chess until they win, and dragons, even Shrewd ones, are incredibly poor players ;)
A late bday gift for my buddy Buloght :D It’s been a long time since I worked on a complex pixel piece, and it was fun to do.
Shoutout to Captain Binky :)
16 colours (I have to admit I’m pleased with that ;) )

What’s my secret?
Frankly, dear forgive my candor
All to do with herbs.
Things like being
Careful with your coriander,
That’s what makes the gravy grander !
Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd. 16 colours
