It started with a simple idea to create a game, but I needed a main character. Rather than use a generator, or work by another artist; I drew one. That then presented a new problem, I needed monsters in a matching style; and that is where it all began, Shades of Battler.

What started as a pet project has evolved into a database of over 100 battlers complete with animation-sheets, and its still growing. All of these are here, for wannabee developers and designers of their own games, free of charge for commercial and non-commercial alike.

I can’t do it alone, as it stands my time to dedicate to art and the creation of such works is being squeezed tight, withering away due to the monster that is finance. Become my patron via Patreon. Provide support via a small monthly donation, every little will help me stay for the long run.
