I'm really excited to announce that a project I'm working on is on kick starter! You can find it here:

I'll be posting quite a few graphics from it this month.

Jouren is the main protagonist in the game, Grapple Knight. I'm the lead pixel artist and art director for the game at Red Knight Games, and it's been a lot of fun to work on. :) There's a demo on the Kickstarter page, so I hope you guy have a chance to check it out!

I want Jouren to have a lot of energy and youth in his moves. Some of his attacks will be a bit over the top, since he's suppose to be the first person born with magic abilities in a very long time.

Great idle and run animation. I like the extra frames as he turns from one to another.

Heh, that's really cool!  Is Charles's BnG username something you can share?  (I know that there are posts I made on BnG as "Steve" that I might like to distance myself from [I was in middle school after all] so I can understand if it isn't).

I'll have to make a contribution once I get a payment I'm expecting--this project looks awesome.

Haha, ah, the BnG days. The other artist on the team, Charles, is also a BnG alumni! I recognize your work, Redshrike, but I know you went by a different name on there. :) Great to see you're still pushing pixels!

And I love anything that Treasure develops, so there's no doubt some Gunstar might have snuck in there. ;)

 So much energy in such a small space <3

 I'm getting some Gunstar Heroes vibes, nicely done!

I'm so happy to learn you're working on a game like this.  I remember your posts on BnG way back in the day--very inspirational even then.
