scalloped llama

The ZIP archive contains multiple separate sprites of Keen and additional images of curbs and rails.

Sciz CT

a.k.a. Scizor CT

In 2003, Sciz CT posted various drawings in two threads called "Dopefish, Shikadi, Mimrocks, oh my!" (DSMOM). They were scanned and (with the exception of some sketches) digitally cleaned up and in most cases also coloured. While some are missing, the majority of those files is still available. The following sketches were the first images posted by him:

The sketches were followed by drawings of various creatures and the BwB, all posted in the first thread:

In the second thread, Sciz CT published more creature artwork. He also made a recreation of the Keen 4 title screen and a Robo Red jack-o'-lantern picture.

As mentioned above, some of the images were missing, so I asked their creator about their whereabouts. Sciz lost the files long ago, but still had the original sheets and scanned them all, including several previously unpublished drawings. The 47 high-res scans, made available on this site in April 2020, are up to 6600 pixels in size on the longer side. I split them among three ZIP archives you can download here:
Download A–H (33,5 MB), J–O (34,7 MB), P–Y (36,9 MB)

The thumbnails below lead to the same images, but reduced to 2000 pixels on the longer side. Forum links are only included for art where none of the original files (be it coloured or non-coloured) is available.

The sketches again, this time including the first sketch sheet and a later sketch sheet which was mentioned, but apparently not published in the second DSMOM thread.

Various creatures, the BwB and the heads of Mort and Keen:

Jack-o'-lanterns with well-known faces:

Recreations of the title screens of Keen 4 and Keen 6, and two Shadowlands scenes:

Sciz also created concept art for the Commander Keen Community Mod (CKCM). The original files were posted in the Keen: Modding forum in late 2003 and early 2004.

Slasher abandoned his fangame Spork III: Code of the Sporkia in favour of a comic version of its story. The comic didn't last long, though.

StupidBunny

a.k.a. KeegTech

Various art by StupidBunny. Also included is the inside of his house.

Below are images that are at least partially based on existing graphics, as well as original pieces of pixel art. The two Keen-style sprites of Doom enemies were StupidBunny's entries for a spriting contest initiated by Maruyama, while the custom character named Blastie was considered to star in a mod. "Hip Spleen" is based on Genius314's edit of an avatar of Commander Spleen, who did actually use StupidBunny's version after Genius314's one for a while.

Over time, he made a number of Emotikeens, most of them in the style originally introduced by TooMuchSpareTime.

In July 2007, he posted several screenshots of a Keen-themed Doom mod titled Cosmic Oblivion. Note that the fifth screenshot is an edit of the third one, with the gun from an image posted by Apocalypse Gohan added. The project was abandoned in 2008, and its creator released what he had done so far.

Also related to the above project is a GIF animation of an enemy which StupidBunny used as his avatar. Two other images of mods, which have yet to see the light of day, were published by StupidBunny, too.

StupidBunny also posted some obviously Keen-inspired level design drawings from the early or mid-2000s.

SynDuo

John A. Galvan, a.k.a. Syndeux

SynDuo made multiple of his old Keen artworks available on DeviantArt again upon my request. Nowadays he is active on Twitter and Instagram.

He posted multiple coloured versions of an early header image for Mort's comic strip, which also include a new logo. I received the file from him.
