Inspired by 8-Bit Theater, this is Black Mage - the sadistic psychopath the Light Warriors keep around for reasons unknown (though it may have something to do with the fact that he could kill them on a whim).
It's not as refined as I'd like, but I had a lot of fun making it. This was the first product I made after getting a Tablet for the first time, so it's a little rough and took longer than you might expect. It's all done in Macromedia Flash 8. The gradients and layering is all done within that program - which is somewhat limited in that respect.
