Skeleton Monster
More stuff for the game I'm trying to do (… ) needs a few bits done I suppose looking at it here :/, It's deliberatly got a very limited palette to try and get that MegaDrive look.
Zombie Walk Death
Had to do a quick little game a while ago and had to a few anim of zombies and the like, not too much time to spend on them but this is one. I quite like this because he's got a bit of character in the walk, Oh and killed by a chain saw hence the juddering.
50's Style pinup Redux
I ended up redoing a pic I'd done ages ago just for practice, need to fiddle more but I think I'll move on.

What ever happened to the battalion wars games? Will there never be a BWiiu? I was such a big fan of the games when they came out, it's so sad to see the franchise die.

Never say never but the chances of BW3 are VERY VERY slim, BW just didn't sell the numbers that'd prompt a sequel, you and all it's fans should have bought 2 copies :).

Too Late, Though I saw one in a second hand shop for a pound so you could probably buy 50 for not much more that it would have cost you to buy a new one at the time.

Just want to thank you for your work on Battalion Wars 1 and 2
It's one of the game that has the most effect on me, and I'm sure the design of the units are a great part of it.
So simply, many thanks
