To alleviate any confusion in those who may follow my account, 90% of what I post here is designs intended for the community Sprite Wars (www.spritewars.com/). My "primary" faction there (though I am still in the building stages) is my own take on a futuristic Canada. As such, the descriptions and "history" that I attribute to everything is entirely in-universe, and conceived of by me. Mashing together of technology from real life and various fictional universes is going to be a result of that, and realism will generally take a back seat.
I do not make any pretensions about being an expert artist. My skills were not the best even when I was doing sprite/pixel work on a regular basis, and years of inactivity on that front (due to the simultaneous loss of both my primary computer and my Majhost account) have not done me any favours. Everything that I "make" is edits and recolours of work that other people have done - All of it used with permission of the original creator when requested, and credit given on the sheets.
Sit back and enjoy the ride, folks. That's all I ask.
