Hey everyone! Im SpiderMew, The Superhero Pokemon! I've been around the internet for a long time now; my first appearance was in 1997 in the Pokemon In My Pocket chat-rooms aka P.I.M.P chats. (I bet no one from then still uses an Identity they created there.)
When I first started to sprite editing I tried to join the Mega Man Spriter's Guild Community. (That is what I remember them being called but I cant find records of their forums' existence.) I started learning by studying their works and I made something that was a bit too close to a Bass made by Zepheroth X and everyone thought I was stealing his work and ridiculed me. It was a while before i would make any artwork again.
I popped up again eventually in the Giant in the Playground's forums. I made artwork there and I felt popular for a while.
I got banned from there for protesting the mods who muted me for defending my religious beliefs in a topic where the mods were violating their own rules on talking about religion by badmouthing Christians. So after that I disappeared again. Eventually I learned about MUGEn and that got me back into making sprites.
Lately though my life has been in a big downswing again. I disappeared from the Mugen scene because I lost the joy in it after struggling for so long to find someone to code my work.
I've tried to make some new art recently but I really just feel like crawling into a pokeball locked away at the bottom of the sea.

So my last computer totally died.
Rather blessed to be able to get a new computer. It was the only gift i got for Christmas. (Brother got it for me, wish i could have gotten him something.)

Unfortunately the people behind the gimp removed all support for older versions. Even finding old version 2.2 on another site, i couldn't find the right runtime thingy it wanted. So i had to learn to use the latest version of gimp. I do not like the changes. The lasso works complexly differently now and all the selection tools don't grab anything! I have to cut and do a lot more work just to move some pixels around then i used to. Worst of all is that all my working files and old assets are lost along with some unreleased sprites and writings. 
I was able to figure everything out in time to finish Genepool for the art-swap, but only barley in time. I wanted to do more with it but I just don't have the same tools and I didn't have the time anymore.

I am not sure what I am going to do next.
My life is in shambles. I wish i had an income. At least things are starting to look up for my little brother, but he shouldn't have to be supporting me. I am a 32 year old man I should be able to take care of myself.


But i cant.

I got bored and googled "Pokemon in my Pocket chats" to see who's still kicking around you popped up, haha! I don't know if you'd remember me though... I went by "Mistygirl" and later "Queen Vaporeon".

Ive got to say, your art is great! Lots of Negaduck Love, I like it.Pokeball 
I used to also rp as Darkwarrior Duck sometimes, i even made a mech for him, (which should be up on here,) the colors look weird on my modern screen lol.. I should remake that someday...
