Hi. I’m the guy you probably know because I like Berserkers too much, or that I like monster sprites too much, or you were here in 2020 and think I still do maps for some reason. That’s a mistake. I make lots of things, but I’m inconsistent as fuck at doing, well, anything.
If you have questions for me, please first read my FAQ, because there’s a good chance your answer is there.
Addendum: DO NOT REHOST MY MATERIALS. If it is here and I haven’t placed it anywhere else, there is good reason for that. Thank you.
And, more importantly:
Here's the Q/A shrunk down for space
Q: What’s F2U and what’s F2E? What can’t I use?
All of my Maps, Palettes, Tilesets, and Battle Animations are F2U F2E and I have zero attachment to them. If you desperately need a tileset/map that I’ve made and you can’t find it in my private collections, DM me on Discord and I can try and find it for you.
My only portraits F2U F2E are ones listed below. They’re also all in the Global Repo. If I have stated it is not F2U or F2E, do not ask me for use, you’ll only annoy me. And I really don’t take kindly to that. Especially if you ping me for it.
Something’s missing! Where can I find X thing?
Well, a lot of my oldest things are slowly being phased out, both to make more room in my Dropbox folders and because I hate a bunch of my older stuff. Maps and Tilesets are exempt from this, because I see value in keeping those around, but lots of my older portraits and especially my oldest battle animations are getting nuked from orbit.
Please don’t ask me for them. I keep them in my own folders, but thats so if I want to revisit them, I can.
Q: Do you do commissions or requests?
I used to take requests, but I don’t anymore, and I would advise you to not give me a request if you aren’t prepared for me to both go overkill on what you want to do and not care about your statements on the works. Let alone, don’t even give me one at all.
Also, I never do commissions. Ever. Don’t ask me for one.
Q: Why don’t you make maps anymore?
I just don’t enjoy doing them much anymore. I mostly did 'em for the longest time because they were one of the few things pretty much nobody slaughtered me for making decisions on (many portraits were that way, along with my one attempt at making a project), but now that I don’t care much for what the community thinks at lance, I’ve abandoned them. I’ll make them if I really feel like it or see a cool tileset, but that’s it.
Q: How long does everything here take to make?
ah yes because i make stuff anymore
Tilesets take upwards of 20-30 hours. If it’s a more basic edit, it can range from 4-20.
Maps take a few hours at most.
Battle Animations are sinful and are aids, and I don’t make many of them. Making them varies wildly depending on the concept, but my recent ones take around 10-14 hours. Scripting takes from 30 minutes to a few hours, depending on complexity (most Obsidian ones took ~3 hours to get correct)
Map Animations take a bit of time, but barely an hour each if I’m lucky.
Portraits vary wildly. GBA-scale can take from an hour to over 10. Halfbodies can take upwards of 30. I’ve been experimenting recently with other styles (namely, VA-11 Hall-a’s art style) and those have varied as well but take ~8 hours.
Q: Are you ever coming back for full?
I never really ‘left’, but I’m also producing only the stuff I want to, which means no more maps and more everything else like portraits, halfbodies, and battle/map animations. I’ve been enjoying ‘coming back’ to do lots of work on Berserker and Bandits, but that’s really it.
All of my F2U, F2E with credit Portraits. Half of 'em are splice anyways, so there’s no harm in splicing with them. Still would rather you not, though.
(Starting with this batch below, I’ll soon be making a Portrait Dump Link for easier access. Halfbody is also F2U/F2E.)

Recommended people to look up to because you shouldn’t look up to me, no seriously these people actually good at art:
ObsidianDaddy does basically everything right. He’s a great battle animation maker, makes the funny portrait, likes kirby, and shitposts without being a dick about it. Please follow him on twitter.
NickT had the best maps on the planet when I started, and I still think he did a better job than almost everything I’ve done.
Wan helps me through virtually every major project, giving advice I both do and don’t want to hear in the pursuit of making my stuff actually good. They’re a cool person and give me actual motivation.
How the fuck do SHYUSTER and Redbean do all that cool stuff animation wise what the hell
zahl was the best staff member, but Chair, Gamma, and Levin are also based as hell
