Contact info

I was going through my blog settings and noticed I had setup the contact email to go to an address I don't check often, my MobileMe account @mac.com. Some of the messages sent to it were forwarded to my primary email account @gmail.com, but after reviewing my junk mail folders for my MobileMe account I see that some messages that have been sent to me over the past couple years went unanswered. For that I apologize; I typically respond to emails sent to me as some of my followers may know. If you've reached out to me in the past and found my lack of answer displeasing, by all means don't hesitate to try and contact me again. I've fixed the glitch.

Kratos

And now for my pièce de résistance. My buddy who is a huge God of War fan requested Kratos. I searched around for a sprite and found one on a DeviantArt page from someone claiming to be an artist on the cell phone God of War Game. Turns out it converts really well to my PixelBlocks palette, but I ran out of light grey and grey building it! I had to add some more white to some areas, I don't think you'll really be able to tell. I am really happy with how it turned out, I plan on keeping this one for some time.

Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden. Yet another request. I'm happy with how this one turned out.

Battletoad

Another co-worker request. I chose Rash from Battletoads. I picked a cool pose, but unfortunately it wasn't able to stand up on its own in the real world. Way too top heavy, didn't balance and the leg was very skinny so it was floppy too. I stood it up against my iMac and another monitor, snapped the picture, then took him apart for parts.

Fire Mario

It's been a while since I made any creations, and a co-worker suggested I make the fire suit Mario from the NES Super Mario Bros. Skin tone is pink instead of a light tan; having a limited color palette has this effect. Overall I don't think the piece suffered for it.
