So I was going through my old stuff again and came across another concept for some simple, higher-resolution FR/LG (With some HG/SS influence on the trees, grass & dirt) tiles, presumably to be used with that large overworld sprite.

Hey, it's one of those fancy sprite thingies again:


This one is fresh from lining and colouring, thus lacking that snazzy animation stuff.

November 4th, 2010, 3:50 PM
Why is there a highlight on its right shoulder blade? Wouldn't the direction of the light source cover it up with shadow. In addition, the tail directly behind the body should have a bit more shadow on it, don't you think?

Also, its right elbow doesn't really seem like an elbow at all, it sorta just curves there.

Anyway, along with the other sprites from your super secret project, I think its pretty tops. I love the amount of detail you put on the heads.

The 100 Mega Shock
November 4th, 2010, 4:02 PM
Of course, my super secret project that nobody knows about.

Also now that I consider it the tail's shading was kinda thrown together quickly.

where we're going, we don't need elbows.

The more eagle-eyed views here may be able to figure out where the reference poses for that sprite originated from.

Wow, you really are amazing at spriting. XD

Anyway, the new sprite looks amazing. The only thing I can fault about it (and this is probably debatable) is that the right foot looks slightly... dodgy? I don't know, but it looks a little bit off, as if a bit of it is missing... Also, this isn't really a problem as it might be your spriting style, but the outline is quite bright. :P Apart from that, it is very well made. :D I wish I had your spriting skills. XD

November 10th, 2010, 1:37 PM
I must say, you are quite the pixel artist, everything in your gallery looks solid.

Dageki's sprite is unrelated to the earlier ones and just shares a common source of reference for the pose.

December 6th, 2010, 11:40 PM
A couple of things:

Arcanine looks extremely isometric to me. I'm not sure if that's the look you were going for or not, but it reminds me of a Duplo toy. lol

Something about the shading on Scizor's face. I dunno, it kinda bothers me. o.o

I thought Tyranitar's head was oddly shaped.

Other than that, looks awsm. :bandit:

The 100 Mega Shock
December 8th, 2010, 5:43 PM
Arcanine's pose is essentially Sugimori's art with the head of HGSS sprite placed over it and redrawn (which itself is Sugimori's piece with a new head and the front legs redrawn) It's facing the screen at pretty much a 3/4 angle which is what I was going for with the piece.

Scizor's shading is imo the worst part of the piece; trying to fit more detailed shading (because he's made of metal) into a sprite that was a lot thinner than everyone else when drawn in consistent proportions. Any more problematic and I would have probably considered deleting the art and putting a different Pokémon in his place (which already occurred with one in the spriting stage)

As for Tyranitar's head it was pretty much the only decent reference I could get of his head that wasn't a near side-on angle.

The 100 Mega Shock
December 11th, 2010, 1:34 PM
The proportions could probably be made further accurate and his left hand is a bit ****ed up (You can't just excuse screw ups away by calling it 'RBG Style' - you still need to be a good artist to purposely imitate a style that has it's flaws) but I've spent an hour and a half on this and that's enough for me.

The 100 Mega Shock
February 5th, 2011, 6:44 PM
It's actually a combination of two things:

for the body (incidentally which is probably an original design sketch from Street Fighter II), and

for the head because I'm even worse at drawing faces.

Sure, if you like you can technically say it's not a "truly" scratch sprite, but that leaves a lot of things out as well if you're not counting things that have been pixelled and shaded originally but worked off a base illustration (Like pretty much every sprite in Pokémon or Street Fighter)

The 100 Mega Shock
February 20th, 2011, 6:50 AM
eh, that would kinda mess up the proportions I've got going on.


The basic rule is that they're about the same size as an old arcade sprite (Lucario's ears push it slightly taller in this scenario) with proportions based around sprites from SNK Vs Capcom on the Neo Geo Pocket.

The 100 Mega Shock
April 13th, 2011, 4:37 PM
So let's get back to fighting game sprites because they are a hundred times more stylistically interesting than Pokémon.

In 2004, ex-fighting game giants SNK decided to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the King Of Fighters series by releasing The King Of Fighters '94 Rebout, a remake of the first King Of Fighters game with newly drawn, higher-resolution sprites. The only problem was that the game kind of sucked for two reasons - it played awful, and it looked awful.

SNK decided to keep the general fighting engine and characters identical to the original game, which posed a bit of a problem - it isn't that fun to play anymore. The game feels much less refined and unpolished compared to later instalments in the series, and every character in the game was missing several of their signature special moves which were added in later King Of Fighters games.

While the graphics, although they were all re-drawn in higher resolution, SNK chose to redraw them based on the characters' sprites from The King Of Fighters '94. This poses another problem, as the sprites were also not very good - every character in the original game have had their sprites revamped at least once by SNK, showing how their artists improved in their style and skill. As an example, compare here Joe's sprite from The King Of Fighters '94, and two revamps later, his sprite as it appears in The King Of Fighters '99:

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100419183560/snk/images/1/19/Joe94.gif http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100419183650/snk/images/8/8c/Joe99.gif

So, I decided to redraw a better sprite in a style similar to KOF style to see how the game might've looked with sensible design choices:

You have some reeeally good stuff here!
I love seeing then-now-resprites and that Scizor just screams 'improvement'. Really dig the hue shifting in the shading, it makes the sprite pop out in a whole different way from the old one. Use of aa and outlines has also improved drastically, so you can definitely give yourself a pat on the back.

Your previous work is very nice on the eyes, too! The beat 'em up -style pokes are really neat and not too cutesy, and I really love the fiery palette on Blaziken.

makes me wonder why you have to double-triple-quadruple-post; you should be getting a non-stop stream of 'your sprites are awsum' or something with stuff this caliber. :?
