Hi again,

I thought I'd update with a new portrait, if that's the kind of thing which interests you.

Starting the year with a little tileset to showcase my tiling skills. Hope you like :)

Hi!

A few updates:
I've been working on Buzz Kill Zero, which will be released in November. Check out the trailer for a peek at my pixel art (backgrounds and boss sprites)!
Latest trailer (https://twitter.com/KapaEnt/status/1184503614875885568)
I made the graphics for an entry for the Alakajam game jam, and it won first prize! Here is the entry's page:
Tasty Tower - Alakajam! (https://alakajam.com/7th-alakajam/790/tasty-tower/)

I'm working on a MSX game, which I'll tell you more about in December.

I still have some art under NDA unfortunately, so I can't show you some pixel art I particularly like.

In the meantime, here are a few sprites:

I am open to small/short gigs, and I'll be looking for bigger projects to work on from end November onwards. Don't hesitate in sending me a PM for any inquiries.

Hello again!

I'm available for work. I come with news, too!

Buzz Kill Zero was released last Friday, here's its Steam page:
Buzz Kill Zero on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1082480/Buzz_Kill_Zero/)
A few screenshots with my tile and background work:
Space Station Walls (https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/apps/1082480/ss_898f7f34e45a98c4058019e4af46e654fb826c73.1920x1080.jpg?t=1573815737) Planet Buzz Background Layers (https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/apps/1082480/ss_ff190c976fc0976002ae5eb66c2e7d3b381458be.1920x1080.jpg?t=1573815737)
I'll post more work when I get approval to share the sprites.

I've been working on a MSX game called Dragorieta, by LUEGO LUEGO Studios, which is still in development. I've been making illustrations for the game, which I can't show you as I'm under NDA, but I can share the title screen I've made:
(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/627394909414096897/644567309486391306/title.png)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing back from you regarding your game projects. Cheers!

Hi! Open for work. I've been talking with some shmup developers, but nothing in the works for now. Let me know if you need anything.

Here's a recent piece:

I also recommend checking out FULLSET's Project Neon, which is looking promising:

Hello again!

Update with two finished pieces:
(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/mg16_metroid_queen_final.png)
(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/shmupidea_final.png)

I've had inquiries into environments/backgrounds, so I'll try to work on a few of those to show you what I can do. What would you like to see more of?

I'm still looking for work, so if you like what you're seeing and you need graphics, please contact me.

Good luck and hope to hear from you soon ;D

Hello!

Just updating and letting you know I'm available for more work.

I've almost finished working on some projects which I can't disclose/show, so instead, here are some 8-bit sprites of Julius Belmont which I've made recently:

Hi again! ;D

I'm available for work. Recently I've worked on a dungeon crawler for a client, and it's inspired me to make this mockup:

(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/dungeoncrawlerwmauler.png)
Made with my 20 colour palette, 20MN.

(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/dungeoncrawleragc.png)
Second mockup with another 16 colour palette of mine, the AGC.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing back from you regarding your game projects. Don't hesitate in sending me a PM for any inquiries. Cheers! Good luck.

Hey again ;D

Hope you're doing OK, what with COVID-19 spreading. Another update from me! I've worked on Ronin Wyld (https://roninwyld.com/), and now I'm working on a game called Alchemist's Tower, and another which is a WIP tower defense game. I'll see if there's anything I can share with you so far.

Besides those, here are some recent pieces:
(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/rc24_interface.png)
UI made with a 24 colour palette I designed, the RC24.
(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/shmupbugv2.gif)
Shmup enemy study.

Redux of an old Rampage sprite - perhaps some of you remember this from back in 2009?
(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/647493307198472202/689518712218320933/unknown.png)
A trial piece I made in 4 hours.


Stay safe, and do send me a message if you want a quote or anything else! I'm available for work until June. :)
