  1. Shit, I thought I changed that. I'll get on that today.
  2. That design work is KILLER. Well done, sir.
  3. Wow. Someone's been honing his craft while I was gone. Most impressive, brother.
  4. I thinking I can still do more with Deja's look. Some motif designs on her gear perhaps. But I also don't want to overdue it and make her look to flashy. As for Ashley's new look, it's actually a new 2nd attire, replacing the Wonder Woman themed one. I'm going back to a lot of characters and giving them new 2nd attires . Not everyone, but those folk who may need an updated look IMO.
  5. Thanks. It's to see my work is still appreciated. I'm hoping when the next slew of games come out we see a resurgence of creators come back to the fold. In the mean time, I've got some simmed matches that've been collecting dust on my HDD, so I figured I may as well do a little editing and upload them. So here's one for everyone's viewing pleasure.
  6. It's been far too long... But I'd like to announce what's to come for myself in the CAW community space. I'm not gonna lie to you guys and gals...for a while I was thinking of packing it all in and calling it a "career". I've been doing this yearly on this forum since 2005, and as a whole since 1999. 22 years total. That's a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time to devote to a hobby. And that's what this has always been, a hobby. Something I do as a creative outlet. Never looked to monetize on it as other creators have done in recent years. I do this for the love of my craft and for community feedback. The appreciation I get for my work, and getting told how much my work has inspired so many others over the last 2 decades is enough of a reward for me. But there was a point many months ago where I sat and really thought to myself perhaps it's time for me to move on. Other areas of my life have begun to take up loads of my time, and admittedly in those same months I hadn't even touched the game. I've still got a number of characters sitting incomplete, and I had no drive to finish them. It was almost the end of an era. Almost. Then I had an epiphany from where I usually find my inspiration, a piece of digital art. The idea for a character came into mind. A character different from any I've ever created. Because he's a character I'll literally be growing into the greatest individual talent of my CAW universe. As the idea took seed in my mind, I wanted to figure out a way to present this character. Then it hit me...why not make my own Story Mode? Using my video editing skills, why don't I present this character in the vein of a fully fleshed out career mode, which will start from his humble beginnings as a rookie, all the way up to him winning his 1st world title? This makes it different then your standard fair CAW show, in that the focus will be just one character. Obviously my established characters will make appearance, but the primary focus will be on my new main character. But then I thought to myself...why stop with this new guy? So I'm not. There's another story I want to tell. Whereas the story of my new main character will be beginning, the story of my original main character must be given a fitting end. So the other Story Mode project I'll be working on...is the last ride of The Destroyer. Yes...I'm retiring Simon Fierhart. He's been my flagship for 22 years, and in canon he's nearly 70 years old. It's time for the old man to do one final tour and ride off into the sunset. I've got other plans for Simon beyond being a wrestler. BIG plans that will come to fruition in another project that I'm waiting to see how the new slew of wrestling games (including 2K22) shake out before pulling the trigger on. Simon's story mode will obviously be a lot shorter, and more targeted in it's presentation...but both will be played out in 2K19 as I know they will overlap with 2K22's release, and I'm not about to start over...yet. Depends solely on what 2K22, AEW, or The Wrestling Code have to offer in terms of their creation suites. So yea, that's the immediate plan. Next step is to bring life to my new "main character"...Isais Obilor. Needless to say, I'm excited to have the fire back in my gut. I think everyone will like what I've got in store the next few months.
  7. @darkwarrior3007 Thanks. She's got an interesting backstory. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2004, when my brother and I ran XWA as an E-Fed, one of our members, close friend and long since retired creator Matsuyoshi312 clued me in to a text based E-Fed he had been part of for years called Virtual Championship Wrestling. It was run by him and a couple of his friends, and he wanted to bring them into XWA as their VCW characters. So I went and scouted the place as Jayson Jones to see what kind of writers they were, and I was more then impressed. Mat had got to work converting the particular characters we wanted to bring in to CAW form; The Troys (Pollux, Castor and Helena) as well as his own VCW character Johnny Aces and last but not least...Tanden Fearse. Her writer didn't stick around long though. I forget why she stepped away, but during the time Tanden was part of XWA she made huge strides...including becoming XWA Diamond champion, and one of the few female characters to beat my brother's character Jaime Fury clean in the process. Tanden defended the title once against against a character named Michelle Marx (who Hungrywolf80 has taken ownership of) before losing it to Michelle's running mate Bianca Dianaco. Not long after that, she was gone. I just decided since I've taken the reigns of the VCW characters, it made sense to bring her back after all this time. She's one of Helena's oldest rivals, and Helena's now a mainstay on my roster...sooooooo, yea.
  8. @Kontra16 Beards always make one look more badass.
  9. Next up would be finishing up the remaining male wrestlers of the CAW roster. From there...who knows.
  10. Ok...I've procrastinated enough. At long last, the final 4 members of the N1 roster Don't let his jovial nature and funky looking ring gear fool you, Shingo is in actually not only the best pure striker in N1, but one of the top ranked Shorin-Ryu Karate-ka practitioners on the planet. Son of the famed Grand Master Hitsugaya Uchiyama, Shingo was raised to follow his footsteps...and does eventually plan to take his father's place as Sensei of their dojo. But before that day comes, he's dived into his 2nd love, Pro wrestling. Happy-go-lucky and always with a smile on his face, Shingo is naturally one of the most popular wrestlers in the company, despite having fell short of winning gold a few times. "The Rabid Wolf" Shohei Tenrai is a man of few words, but bold...and often violent action. With a singular focus on proving he is the most dominant force in N1, Shohei holds no allegiances. The true embodiment of the "Ronin", he walks a solo path paved with the bodies of broken foes, his prize being defeating Rokuro for the World Title.. Kenpo Karate expert, MMA fighter and long standing rival of Shingo, Tarou in recent times has found himself under the wing or Honma, serving as one of his right hand men. A loyal and fierce competitor, his striking is only surpassed by the likes of Shingo and Rokuro...but make no mistakes, he's more then capable of besting anyone with his arsenal of punches, kicks, knees, elbows and submission holds. What he lacks in flash he more then makes up for in brutal efficiency. The Japanese "God Of War" and easily the most imposing figure in N1 wrestling. Gohda began his career training to become a Sumo wrestler, but became bored with it...despite having the talent and skill to move up the ranks quickly. He would depart the sport of Sumo in his by 27, and decided to make the jump into pro wrestling. Since then, he's firmly established his place among the most dominant super heavyweights in the business. Tags are OZDBX and N1.
  11. Thanks. Seeing as I've been doing this 21 years now, I've had a lot of practice. (Yes...21 years. dating back to WWE War Zone, which released in 1999...lol)
  12. That's a loaded question. Almost ALL of my characters draw influence from real life wrestlers or characters from other media. Jayson Jones draws from Booker T, Shelton Benjamin and Jay Lethal. Dru Mercer draws from Brock Lesnar and Michael Elgin. Evan Slade draws from Jeff Hardy and a piece of digital media that was shared with me ages ago. I can go on. Over the years many have taken on unique looks and evolved to the point where you'd either have to have seen the earliest versions of the character or reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally be paying attention to tell.
  13. Things have been rough for me the last month or so. Financial issues. But I'll be back at things soon.
  14. A bulk of them are done, I just have to get off my lazy ass and upload them.
  15. One of my new girls Kari Freeman one on one against Brittany.
  16. My bad guys. I'll be uploading the last 4 later today. Been busy the last couple weeks and I completely forgot...lol.
  17. That's the general idea. There aren't many re-works I've got planned, but those that will be I'm prioritizing at the present moment. The "Nitro" gimmick I felt ran it's course. There's nothing new or innovative I could have done with it. But as Brittany Monroe, I can essentially make her a more gritty character, though still with all of the bravado she's known for, just with a longer mean streak.
  18. Quick little update. Brittany Nitro has been one of my most popular female characters and the top heel female of CAW for a few years now. She's gone through several iterations since I first created her in 2014. As with all of my characters, they evolve over the years, and I felt it was time to do so with her. So much so...that Brittany Nitro as a gimmick...is now dead and gone. She's now Brittany Monroe. Same charcter, just ditching the "80s" gimmick and going back to the original idea I have for her in 2014...just with substantially better execution. I decided on the name change based on the two women who she's heavily based on, Marilyn Monroe (Face texture) and fitness model Nahla Monroe (Body type & tattoos/no relation). Since she's packed on a bit more muscle, I've also changed up a few moves to give her arsenal a bit more physicality. Same moves, just more impactful looking versions of them. She's available for download right now. Tags are of course CAW19 and OZCAW.
  19. Thanks guys. My faves out of the bunch are Rokuro, Ryunosuke and one of remaining for to be posted Shingo Uchiyama. Rokuro because of the character's evolution. He's sort of a hybrid of KENTA and Katsuyori Shibata in terms of look and fighting style. I'd always struggled with finding a definitive identity for him, but I think I nailed it this time. As far as Ryunosuke goes, the preview pic doesn't do him justice. You have to download and use him to get the gravatas of what kind of character he is. Then there's Shingo, who started out being a "joke" character like Danshuko Dino...but I decided "what if I make him look like a fool, but he's actually a stone cold bad ass?" You'll see what I mean when he's posted.
  20. As promised, here's the 2nd N1 update. The "Flying Warrior". The "Flyboy Ace". No matter what the moniker, what can't be denied is the impact Ichiro Tennouji has made in N1. Grandson of the legendary Masato Tennouji, Ichiro has cut a path all his one in time in pro wrestling. Regarded one of the most complete talents in the industry, wherever the match goes, Ichiro is more then capable of pulling off the win. "The Prodigy" has fast become one of N1's top draws. Brash, confident and cocky...but with a work ethic beyond reproach, Kyo took the business like a duck to water. Only 4 years into his career, he's demonstrated skill that far surpasses his experience. Since aligning himself with Ichiro to form "Prodigal Ace", his stock has only continued to climb. The reigning, defending N1 World Champion...Rokuro Inoue has undergone a dramatic change in attitude since the year's begun. A more aggressive, calculating competitor, this change has seen a fundamental shift in how he's perceived among fans. Some love the change, while others long for him to return to his more noble ways. Now calling himself "The Conqueror" in defiance to "Samurai" Sanada and "Shogun" Honma...Rokuro has no intent on relenting. One name says it all...RYUNOSUKE. The most flamboyant, arrogant, self-serving man in N1...and maybe the entire industry, since bursting on the scene 2 years ago, one thing is certain: He's looking out for himself and ONLY himself. With model like looks and an imposing 6'6" frame, he matches his ego with unparalleled physical skill coupled with a nasty mean streak. He's not above breaking rules or hearts to get what he wants. The legendary "Shogun", and eldest member of the active N1 roster...Shingen Honma has seen and done it all. Regarded one of the most influential men in Japanese wrestling, he's held titles in multiple promotions and in recent years, formed his own academy as well as his own stable "The Shogunate", which comprises of members such as Sean Trueth, Tarou Hayashi and Shohei Tenrai to name a few. All of the above are available right now. Tags: OZDBX and N1.
  21. The 2nd update will be live tomorrow.
  22. Anslem, Jarret, Liedhamer, Pavlos and Simon are all up. And speaking of Jarret, here's a match with him versus a character a few old school e-fed folk might remember...
  23. Indeed there is. The new laptop is up and running, downloaded all of the programs I use (Photoshop, Power Director, etc) and I'm ready to rock and roll. Decided to give her a test run as far as video capture and editing...and here's the results.
