Just wanted to leave you all a quick note, because I've been getting a lot of PM's and e-mails about this already...
Yes, you may use my resources (both from this blog and from the official forums) in your entries for the 2014 Indie Game contest at no charge. Please make sure that you're crediting me as well as any other people/companies mentioned in my credits and TOS. I would also appreciate a link to my blog. :)
One of the last things I did for TUAH before I got super busy is to start converting NPCs into a mix of VX-Ace and RMXP. Basically, I took the VX-Ace heads and stuck them on RMXP bodies. I do like very much how it turned out, and I'd like to eventually have a huge converted database, but it might be a while before that happens.
I figured I'd share a few of the sprite sheets anyway, just in case they're useful to someone out there.
Free for use in non-commercial games made with RPG Maker products.
Please note that you must own both RMXP and RMVX-Ace in order to legally use these sprites.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think. I can post a few more when I find a free moment. :)
I haven't been posting very much lately. I've had too much work to do, and really nothing to post about. My game development was put on temporary hiatus, as was the majority of my random art/resources that I normally give away for free. Sorry about that!
Celianna wrote a really great article about tileset and just how much work goes into creating them. I think it's something that everyone should read and I hope that it puts some things into perspective in terms of what's involved in making tiles.
My zombie survival set, for example, took 493 hours of work total, spread over 6 months . Toward the end of the deadline, I was working 60-70 hours per week to make sure everything was top notch quality and ready for release. It was a lot of work, but I'm really happy with the end result. I hope you guys enjoy the pack, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with it.
With that out of the way, I want to mention that the holidays are on their way. Like every year, I'm making home-made gifts for my extended family. It will take quite a bit of time this year, as I'm doing paper art (cards, etc) as well as baking goodies. So, the updates might be sporadic until after Christmas, still. I'll try to periodically update with a stray resource or two, so hopefully it will make up for lack of consistent updates.
One of the big things I've been into lately is paper crafting - more specifically, making handmade greeting cards. I get to exercise my creativity, as well as practice various traditional art techniques. For one of the cards I made a few months ago, I got back into watercolors and came up with a fabulous sunflower. For another, I used a patterned paper to make a pinwheel that you can spin around.
Today, I finished a Steampunk-inspired birthday card and I wanted to show it off:
I haven't decided who's going to be getting it quite yet (I have to find a fellow Steampunk enthusiast first), but it came out pretty neat. The best part is hard to see in the picture, but there are areas that are torn off. So, there are these raised little paper edges that are fun to touch.
