Lily spots Destiny and begs for forgiveness. After pleading her case, the two kiss and make up.

At Chuck's Devils HQ, Destiny learns about Lily's profession and living conditions. She gives Lily the chance to live with her and leave her life of crime behind.

Ming-Na easily escapes from Lily and Candace, but Yu-Ri puts up a better fight. Yu-Ri gains the upper hand... until Candace butts in.

Yu-Ri regrets losing her temper, but Lily is able to console her. This act of kindness triggers a memory from Yu-Ri's past.

It took a year, but thanks to Noveltybest, I've finally been scouted for the Art Portal! It seems my Pixel Day submission attracted some attention.


If you've just discovered my user page and are looking for more pixel art, you may want to check out over two thousand smilies I've made since 2001. I've created tiny icons for emotions, food, animals, characters, flags, and much more. Emoji seem to have made smilies obsolete these days, but they're still online and available for use. Just visit: Mazeguy Smilies.


Recently, I've been developing a comic series called Chuck's Devils. As the title implies, it's a loose parody of Charlie's Angels starring three aspiring models turned thieves. I hope you'll enjoy the misadventures of Lily, Yu-Ri, and Candace as they stumble through their new life of crime, as well as life with each other. You can read episodes on my art page or at ChucksDevils.com.


In between all of that, I've also made domino toppling videos, animations, and games in DOS and Flash. You can find all of my past projects on my personal website: Mazeguy.net

Thank you for visiting! :)

This is a Flash cartoon from 2001 that I converted into a movie ahead of Adobe killing the plugin. It features a yellow guy called Cool Dude attempting to impress Cool Girl by bungee jumping. Super creative names, right?

This was meant to be the first animation of a series, hence the word “adventures”. Unfortunately, this is the only one. I started a snowboarding episode, but it never got finished.

In each cartoon, Cool Dude would try to get a kiss from Cool Girl, only for things to go hilariously wrong. I think I drew inspiration from the old Legend of Zelda cartoon, where Link suffered a similar fate.

Check out wallpapers of the characters:

Having had little success at theivery, the Devils switch gears and attempt a different kind of crime... kidnapping?!

They plan to capture and collect a ransom on Ming-Na, an heiress who might not be the spoiled little rich girl she appears to be.

You can read "Episode 6: The Chinese Conundrum" here or at ChucksDevils.com.


With this episode done, the entire series is officially 1/8th complete! The finish line is practically in sight! (What have I gotten myself into...)

In 2005, my brother and some of his friends made a short film called The Challenge. It’s about a man trying to beat the most unfair video game ever made. I was enlisted to animate the gameplay footage.

The game was called Hoagie’s Revenge, and starred an Italian deli owner battling the forces of evil with an endless supply of hoagies. About 25 animations were made of the player dying in the most bizarre ways I could come up with.

I thought I lost most of the sprites to a hard drive crash. Fortunately, the editor of the movie still had a file containing most of the animations in lossless quality. After ripping them, and recreating a few missing assets, I assembled these sprite sheets for your enjoyment:

Deli Owner - Enemies - Backgrounds - Effects/Extras

Years ago, several people asked if they could make a real game based on Hoagie’s Revenge. Since then, the Kaizo genre has risen in popularity. So if you want to put in the time and effort, you have my permission to use these sprites. Just be sure to credit me, please. :)


If you'd like to learn more about the movie, I wrote an article about it here:


And to see these sprites in action, you can watch this compilation video:

Lily meets Destiny for their date, with Candace and Yu-Ri tagging along for support. As it turns out, the backup wasn't necessary.

Lily forms a love connection with her kindhearted idol. Sadly, their bond is suddenly broken by a connection of a different sort.

Lily is shocked when she's told their next target is a necklace worn by her favorite actress, Destiny.

The movie star's martial arts training foils their plans. But Destiny decides to give them the jewelry in exchange for a date with her superfan.

You can read Episode 4: Decent Proposal here.

A preview of "Episode 4: Decent Proposal" has been added to my art page. You can start reading it here.

In case you missed it, I also made an animated promo for my comic. Check out Candace, Yu-Ri, and Lily in motion:

Destiny is a famous actress from action movies.  The Devils attempt to swipe her necklace, but her martial arts training foils their plans.

However, Destiny takes a liking to super-fan Lily, and the two form a complicated relationship that begins in "Episode 4: Decent Proposal".

Destiny makes her comic debut in May, and will be a recurring character throughout the series.  I hope you'll like her.  :)
