thanks for update. i needed parry, falling and idle animation. 

i look foward to your new work

thanks for the support πŸ˜ƒ

Hi, I'm new to this and I kinda need help. I became your patron because your artwork looks amazing. I want to download some of your packs that should be free for patrons, right? I just dont know how, so if you could help. Thanks

hi thanks so much! Means a lot. I post the access links on my Patreon channel (pinned at the top, highest post) just click those and follow the instructions πŸ˜ƒ

If you still have issues, join the discord and send me a message! Lots of helpers in there as well!

I found it, thanks a lot πŸ˜„. Man they are so cool!


Have you considered making more characters with separate sprite sheets with sprite stacking like the gunslinger again?


Hey! Yes absolutely 😊 not sure when but definitely will be doing more!

Ok cool! I love your style and I'm looking for more sprites that can attack in 4 directions so that'd be great

Amazing aanimtions! Cannot wait to use these!

Thanks bugsy 😍


have you considered adding a patreon tier where i can just drop money and get ALL the artwork, past and present? or will you consider it in the future when your collection grows much larger?

keep up the good work!


hey Gooby! 

That's an interesting idea! I do have a bundles on itch for each of my series containing everything in them! Which is sort of the same thing, but would be cool to offer something on Patreon as well!

Thanks πŸ˜„

I love your artwork! Are you planning any more heroes, or what else are you planning in the "Dark" series?

thank you so much! And yes I want a bunch of heroes I the series. Have a lot of plans but what comes next is influenced by my Patreons as well πŸ˜„

Yesss! Im a patreon, i wish well all agree that its time for a bunch of heroes β™₯️β™₯️β™₯️

Yesssss heroes galore πŸ˜„

Hope to see more animations / skills in a future update. But already great as is!

Definitely gonna do an update for her! Not sure when yet ☺️

oh man probably one of the coolest characters youΒ΄ve done!!


thanks so much Spinola! <3
