Hey folks, starting about 10 years ago, I did quite a lot of sprite work for RPG Maker XP - You may know me better as Alisatana or just Tana.
Well, as is the case with a lot of things on the internet, my work has been spread around the game making communities. Also, several things have also been attributed to me when I wasn’t the original artist - most notably the Half-Kaiser templates by ShowKaiser - although I did help a great deal with expanding the library for that template, it saddens me to not have SK get the credit he deserves.
I’d love to put together a comprehensive list of /y RMXP sprites into one location for ease of finding, and hopefully correct some of this incorrect credits. Unfortunately, I’ve been through quite a few computer deaths and swaps in the last 10 years, and didn’t always bother to back up the rmxp stuff.
So, have you seen my sprites? Or sprites that have been credited to me?
I’ve been re-watching Avatar as background to working, and I just realized something kind of significant about the role that @georgetakei was cast as. He’s the warden of not just a prison, but a work camp, or concentration camp.
As you may or may not know, George spent some of his childhood living in an American “internment” camp for people of Japanese decent during World War 2.
When the warden says the Earthbenders have broken spirits, the same could have been said for George’s family, and other Japanese Americans of the time.
Why did it take me this long to realize this?
