Go ahead and ask for one if you want. I love to critique art of all kinds and skill levels. Just keep in mind I'm a very critical person! :)

Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition Logo by DragonDePlatino
Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition Logo
It's been a while since I posted any of my vector work, so here's the official logo for my "Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition" project! I'm not a big fan of the blurring used on the globe, but this logo's gone through a lot of iterations and it's the best I think I can do for now. As usual, everything you see here was drawn in Inkscape.
Mega Man NES Sprite Sheet by DragonDePlatino
Mega Man NES Sprite Sheet
You know, I never really was a big fan of Mega Man's sprites in the ol' NES games. They had really awkward anatomy and could have used the limited space of the NES much more efficiently. So to prove my point, I drew up these sprites.

While making this sheet, my goal was to reuse as many 8x8 sprites as possible for each of Mega Man's frames. I also wanted to redesign Mega Man's sprite to be larger and more detailed, but not too big as to create sprite flicker problems. As it stands, the widest sprite in this sheet is 5 tiles (jumping) and everything here would only use up 6 rows in the NES' CHR-ROM. I'm really proud of this!
Mario NES Mockup by DragonDePlatino
Mario NES Mockup
I while ago I realized I had never drawn any Mario-related art, so here's a mockup with a few characters and tiles! Everything here adheres to NES restrictions, so this could feasibly work on the good ol' Famicom. I might animate a few more of these characters or draw a few more tiles later, but for now I'm pretty satisfied with this.
Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition
Hey, guys! Guess what? I just recently released version 1.1 of my Earthbound Zero ROM Hack, Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition!

The hack was a six-month project that pushed my NES skills to the limit, and actually forced me to work with real hardware. If Earthbound is your cup of tea or you're looking to get into the first game of the series, you can read more about the project and download it here!

Hey there, you got some nice pixelart around and well, I was wondering on something: are you available to partake in another game project or no?

Hey man! I've been listening to this album frequently and I really like it. I think you might like it too!

It's a guy that goes by the name of "Shnabubula" who did a few chiptune albums, but the one I want to share with you is "Game Genie". He mixed 8-bit with 16-bit soundfonts and adds a funk/jazz style to his music. I think it's really good and ingenious the way he composed those really catchy tunes.

You can find the full album here:…
