15th Anniversary
November 6th, 2019 by James Beaver

Surprise, I didn’t completely neglect the site on its birthday! Currently taking a break to get some rest, but I just had to sketch my poor old neglected characters. Will this turn into something bigger later on? *shrugs*

Illmosis 12th Anniversary
November 6th, 2016 by James Beaver
2016 Fighting game-style sprites of NutrollFighting game-style sprites of Hazelle Spellcaste

It’s the 12th anniversary of the Illmosis site! Between sinus problems and a month-long stretch of trying to churn out horror sprites for the DangerTerrorHorrorThon on ScrollBoss, I’m a little tired. There’s still some newness to be had with the Hazelle sprite seen on the other site (but with a new, simple background) and an all-new Nutroll sprite. Both gallery pages have .GIFs made from different points of progress as I worked on the sprites.

Now that the big code rewrite of the GFX Generators on ScrollBoss is finally done and the DangerTerrorHorrorThon there is over, I can give this place some of the attention it’s needed for a long time. Sorry for the absence and I’ll try to breath some life back into this spot!

11th Anniversary
November 6th, 2015 by James Beaver

This isn’t an 11th Anniversary post as much as it’s a “this place isn’t dead” post. I haven’t updated since the All-AmeriCon and a lot has happened since then. So this post is going to play catch-up and talk about what’s next.

Sprites were made and posted on ScrollBoss, including a lot of horror characters for another DangerTerrorHorrorThon that wrapped up on Halloween.

Updating the sprite group pics on this site to add sprites is too time consuming, which is part of why they haven’t been updated in months. ScrollBoss’ sprite galleries are easy to update, but lack the features that the I made for the art galleries. I’ll stick to adding single pieces here (including pixel art prints) until I can make one merged gallery system.

I did some commission pixel work, but you’ll have to wait to see the ridiculously fun background I made. The biggest thing was buying Anime Studio 10 with money I made at the All-AmeriCon and then, for once, following through with trying to learn a recent art program purchase.

It’s easier for me to learn the ropes of the program using pixel art, so that’s part of why my focus has been on that. The program can also use Manga Studio/Clip Studio files, so that’s even more incentive for me to learn those program and transition to having fun with drawn art in the program.

I was going to talk about things I plan to work on, but that never works out well for me, does it? Example: plans to do a big group of Illmosis character sprites for this update fell off when my sinus problems decided to hit me with a truck, and my concentration is so shot that even typing this post is tougher than it should be. That didn’t stop me from getting a Nutroll sprite finished. I’ve been working on some character redesigns and revamps while doing the pixel art sketches, like Exponent over there. Her hair color change is thanks to how a major TV show decided to have a redhead who can make duplicates of herself. I also shortened her hair in hero mode so that her silhouette looks less like Mindsight’s. Honestly, I dig the purple hair, so it all worked out. I’ll be making more Illmosis sprites this month and I’ll add them to ScrollBoss in a special update.

Feel the love
July 13th, 2012 by James Beaver
Maceo feels the love as only he can.Nutroll's 2012 character profile artwork2012 Illmosis network promotional flyer.

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who put the All-AmeriCon together and all the people who came out to enjoy it. The event keeps getting bigger and better each year as the word gets out about how much fun it is. There were even some cosplayers this year and that’s when you know you’ve got a convention going on.

Today’s update puts the recent Nutroll pic and the 2012 flyer into the gallery with extra information along with a new picture of Maceo (or Maceon, I’m still undecided on his first name) doing that thing he does as only he can do it. As the 2012 party flyer mentions, the War Begins Again starts in October, so you won’t have to put up with the annoying teasers for much longer.

The 12th Anniversary of ScrollBoss hits next week on Thursday, July 19th and I’ve been stockpiling quite a few sprites for the update. It won’t be huge, but it should be interesting. Expect a mix of well-known characters, semi-forgotten legends and a few obscure characters. I posted a sprite of Chin Taimei (from Technos’ “Double Dragon” game for the NES) in this Tumblr post, so check it out there and follow both the ScrollBoss and Ill Side-Mission Tumblrs if you want to. I just enabled them with Disqus comments, so you can leave comments, too.

By the way, I’m not sure how I’ll be handling this, I will be selling prints through the site this year… somehow. Until I get a print store set up on the site, anyone who wants to buy prints should contact me and we’ll work out some sort of Paypal/snail mail stuff. Anyone who buys prints will get a free party flyer, if you like that sort of thing.

Nutroll and… his name is WHAT?
June 29th, 2012 by James Beaver

Here’s something that I just made B&W prints of for the All AmeriCon convention in Warren, Ohio this Sunday:

And here’s something from the “War Begins Again” project:

I f@#$ing hate that guy.

I’ll have gallery pages for the new stuff next week.
