Zak Jones Backgrounds with Tyler Warren Battlers

It might just be a match made in RPG Maker heaven.  My long time artist friend and mentor has drawn (1 so far) some backgrounds that I hope to use with my battlers to give people more compatible options to build with.  The first one is brilliant, can't wait to see more.

Coloring Book Page - Angel Level 3

To save on loading, I'll just post the preview for the level 3 version of the "Angel" coloring book page.  Right now I'm sitting at around 17 pages total...and hoping to launch this summer.  I really need a good 35-40 pages to go live, so I'm not really all that close yet.  I just need to keep serious about it.

The previews on these don't do them justice.  They are drawn 11" x 17" and are quite big.  My intent is to make the book available as both an 11" x 17" and an 8.5" x 11" book, since Amazon will let me use their service for the smaller size, but not the larger.

5th set 50 is Alive!

It's alive!  This is my 5th pack of 50 for RPG Maker.  I set it at a lower price point to hopefully attract some more interest.  It was seriously a ton of fun to make and was one of my favorite projects.  Here's hoping for more to come!

Buy it today!

Coloring Book Page - Octo

Started to get a little more aggressive with my coloring book and decided on the theme, which is meant to be usable by all ages.  So each drawing will come in several levels of complexity.  Octo is shown here, lots of fun to draw.

Filtered Battlers Part 3

Last example.  I find there are some nice things about the filtering, but still not quite the same.

Filtered Battlers Part 2

Another for comparison, here's the clay monster, the second image is filtered here.  It certainly cleans up some of the "dirty-ness" but I think it looks sharp still.


Filtered Battlers

Small update on my RPG characters.
I ran across some forum posts saying my battlers are not very smooth (actually called them "dirty" looking), but thought I would run some filters on them to see if they could be smoothed a bit.  I think I hit what I was after with some noise reduction filtering.  I'm going to polish them all and include as an option for folks.

First image is filtered, second is original by comparison.  What do you think?

Happy Birthday RPG Maker

Here's a couple screenshots from a little Mimic Cake I drew up to celebrate RPG Maker's coming birthday.  Hope it's well received.

Coloring Book Progress

Making progress on the coloring book project!  The concept I've settled into is to offer each image at varying levels of complexity.

Example sample here is the three headed dragon...which is what I thought Tiamat was, until I looked him up (he has five heads).  Anyway, you can see the three levels of complexity that will all be included in the book, hopefully appealing to the casual colorist and the dedicated details type as well.  They look pretty sharp when printed at full size (11x17) and I can't wait to see what people color them into.

More to come,

Tyler Warren RPG Battlers - 1st 50 Re-Mastered

1st 50 has been Re-Mastered for better quality and compatibility with the new RPG Maker MV.  Actually turned out to be a lot of work to do, but in the end it made them much stronger.  Love MVs resolution.

All the best,

50 Shades Screens from RPG Maker MV

I'm really enjoying the new RPG Maker MV, much better graphics and such.  I've retooled some of my work for the next pack to better match it's settings.  Here's some screens from my adjusted monsters.

Leadership Yourself! Available now!

It's here!  It's really here.  After much to do and some great help from people who proof read, my book is available for sale.  Yay!

Leadership Yourself! Leadership Lessons From an Air Force OTS Instructor.

Available now!

After 3 years as an Air Force instructor at Officer Training School, Captain Tyler Warren breaks his silence by sharing his impassioned leadership lessons.

Primarily for new and aspiring military officers, these lessons are applicable to anyone seeking to improve their leadership competency.

Tyler Warren's 15 years of military experience as a Marine, Airman, 4-star speechwriter, and OTS instructor, culminate in his unique perspective on what matters most to those in uniform.

Becoming a military officer can be a surprisingly challenging paradigm shift and this book is designed to help you, or your loved ones, navigate those waters with a greater sense of confidence, purpose, and responsibility.

Get ready to have your mind blown, because when all else fails, it's time to...Leadership Yourself!

Buy it online today at any of these locations:

Be sure to share the news, and thank you!

All the best,

Tyler Warren

Tyler Warren Characters now on Etsy

Tyler Warren's Etsy shop is now open and offering up many of the same characters that were previously exclusive to RPG Maker's shop.  I will be expanding these as new sets become available.  One plus, for those who previously purchased packs for RPG Maker, is that these sets have an expanded license and can be used in any project, not just RPG projects.

All the best,

Tyler Warren's Adult Coloring Book

Testing concepts right now, but would like to get into the adult coloring book niche here shortly.  I didn't know such a thing existed until recently and hope I didn't miss the wave of interest.  I've done two demo images and learned a ton from them.  I'll be sending them to some test color-ists and see if they can give me some feedback and guidance.  After Leadership Yourself goes live, my next project is a coloring book for sure!

The best,
Tyler Warren

Leadership Yourself! Cover Art

I've been working furiously on my first book, Leadership Yourself!  And today semi-finalized the cover art, which has me excited.  Once the cover is done, the book can't be far behind, right?

My target is to complete it by the end of the month, so watch out!  Wish me luck, because I need to complete this project before I can get after any of my other artistic endeavors.

Ive started another blog to add updates and promote the book when it comes out.

Wishing you all the best,

Tyler Warren's 50 Shades of Battle

50 Shades of Tyler Warren.  Basically I was craving some black and white art and went to town making a set of 50 silhouettes for use as battlers, or logos, or other elements in the game.  It may not sell well, but I really like it, which is usually a strong indicator that few else will :)

Anyway, no release information yet, but I'll update this post when I get some.

50 Shades of Tyler Warren - Screen Test

First test screen from my "50 Shades" project.  I expected the editing piece for black and white drawings to be really simple...and it turns out it hasn't been.  I'm pleased with what I've gotten to today.  Many thanks to my computer for crashing, which set off a chain of events that had me finding my copy of CS5 again and being able to leverage a 1TB hard drive...sometimes what looks like a hassle turns into something wonderful in the end.

All the best,

RTP Redesign Part 1

It's alive!
Part 1 of the RTP replacement pack is now available on RPG Maker's web site.  Buy it here: Tyler Warren RTP Redesign Part 1

This particular pack was a TON of work, and was a rush to the finish line, but we got it done and I'm very pleased by the drawings, a lot of new "favorites" for me in there.  I think sometimes I'm my own biggest fan...which is not a bad thing to be I suppose.

Hope you are all well.

Doodle 40 - Little Sahagin

Little Sahagin, started as a doodle and is going to be a part of the upcoming set, replacing the RTP in RPG Maker.  Very excited about the project, and hopefully it gets knocked out soon :)  I just need to keep myself engaged in the game of completing the pack.

Keep it real,

RPG Maker - Tyler Warren RPG Battlers 3rd 50 is Live!

Yes, the Tyler Warren RPG Battlers - 3rd 50 as mentioned previously has been released!

This pack is ready for you to explore and exploit.  I really, really enjoyed making the pack and hope it attracts lots of interest, especially following the success of the RPG Maker Humble Bundle event last month.
Please hop on over to and pick up your copy.

I would so love to see someone craft an entire game with my characters...and if any of you happen to do just that, please let me know and let me cheer you on (by that I mean play your game).  This RPG Maker thing has been quite the adventure for me and hopefully I find time in the next year to craft a fourth 50, but we'll see.  Other work related things will start increasing for me shortly.

As always,
