Tyler Warren RPG Battlers 6th 50 - Monster Evolution Yanfly Example

I will admit having way too much fun with this set!  Many thanks for Yanfly for the inspiration.  I was going to make the Yanflayer many other colors, but finally settled on keeping with the established color scheme, I'm happy with the end result.

Yanfly Evolution WIP

Yanpi, Yanfly, and YanFlayer!  Work in progress on my homage to the great Yanfly, who makes arguably the largest range of RPG Maker plugins.  Hoping I capture the likeness well.

Fish Evolution (example)

I was very pleased overall on how these three turned out.  The third is massive compared to the other two, but the excess scale doesn't impact them as a whole negatively, in my opinion.


Fish Evolution (WIP)

I haven't had time yet to complete the third element of this evolution, but thought it fun to post the first two in the series, since the colors are done.  It'll be interesting to see if I can do some variations on the colors once we get it in the computer and cleaned up.  I wasn't trying for green actually, it was going to be a white/red/yellow coloration, but there was so much red in the crab, that I wanted to give some balance to it.  Hope you enjoy!  More to come.

Tyler Warren RPG Battlers 6th 50 - Monster Evolution (Concept part 2)

Second concept example for you to chew on.  It's been a fun adventure so far, hoping you have some ideas of what else we might want to make in an evolution set.  So far themes I've been working on are water, fire, earth, electric.

Tyler Warren RPG Battlers 6th 50 - Monster Evolution (Concept)

This is the concept of what may become the next pack, featuring monsters in various stages of evolution.  Not as cute as Pokemon perhaps, but would open up a lot of battle setup options for RPG Maker users.  Tell me what you think?  Should I keep going (3 down, 47 to go)?  What monsters do you want to see evolved?

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,

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.

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,
