Hello all (if anyone reads these)!

It's been a long time since I've been active and submitted anything here on DA.  After almost 2 years of inactivity, I finally was convinced to pick up my beads again and make something new.  You can see it here!

I don't know if I'll be making anymore in the immediate future, but here's showing that I'm not completely dead yet!

That moment you realize you have to scrap ~4,500 beads of work and start over because you fucked up the color pallet by using a color that's not supposed to be used until later and can't be replaced by another color because it's the darkest color in the pallet and will mess up the rest of the sprite if you try to use it because then it'll look weird!

DAMMIT.

At least I was only 5 boards in rather than realizing this half way through...

Beads on order

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 10:49 AM
Despite the overwhelmingly huge stockpile of beads I already have, apparently it is not enough since the colors I need are in low supply.  This upcoming project is going to require over 20 different colors and will consume almost 70,000 beads! That's crazy talk! 

Also: WHEN DID PERLER STOP MAKING NEON BLUE!? I use that color so much and I've only got a few bags left! ;___;

Oh shit when did that happen?! 


To any and all who have visited my page, commented, and favored my work: Thank you very much! It's great to know I still have people who come to look and appreciate it.


Now for a status update:

Q: When is your next post going to be?!
A: I wish I knew ;A;

Q: Are you open for commissions?
A: NOPE. I recently botched a commission job super hard and doubt I'll be doing any for awhile.

Q: When is that AWESOME PHANTASY STAR IV SPRITE YOU KEEP TALKING ABOUT COMING?!
A: When I can afford the rest of the needed materials and can quit working for 2 months >_>;;;

So in short: I'm alive, but not doing much of anything sprite wise at the moment. Life is work, work is life.

Coming to theaters next year...

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 19, 2013, 12:27 PM
There was once a young spriter who had a dream...

A dream to realize a larger-than-life ambition...

Fearing nothing, he set out to take this challenge head-on without regard for failure...

But, he was not ready to accept and complete such a task and was cast down from spriter's glory...

He vowed he would never be defeated again and honed his craft over the months and years...

Now he's back for vengeance.

Next year, TheChairSlayer returns in the most highly anticipated sequel in the bead sprite community.

Coming to a dA portal near you it's...

Spriting will resume by the end of the month

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 2, 2013, 3:06 AM
Ok, guys! Here's the gig. So as you know (maybe, I'm not sure if you actually care or not) life has been very busy for me the last few months. I am moving in 2 weeks, and after that plan to be back up and in business again!

So please bear with my absence a bit longer!

I feel awful. I've been commissioned to do a 4 part portrait pack and I haven't even finished the 2nd one. Life has gotten so damn busy lately and I barely have had any time to even sit down at my sprite desk...

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 8, 2013, 8:10 AM
After quite the long recess due to getting a new job, E3, and other life circumstances, I'm finally getting back to bead spriting. You should all expect to see a number of pieces coming from me in the coming weeks! Stay tuned folks!

ALSO! WHEN ARE THERE GOING TO BE SPRITE SHEETS FOR PROJECT X ZONE AVAILABLE?! I WANT TO MAKE EVERYTHING FROM THIS GAME!

So I just finished my first week at my new job and it's friggin' awesome!  However I'm going to be very busy for the next month or so with work, graduating, and then off to E3! I've got an idea for my next sprite, but it's not going to be here for awhile, so thank you everyone for your patience and understanding!

Well, I enjoyed it while it lasted. Can't really afford to keep it going for another yet, not right not at least. Damn shame.
