More mixed stuff here, friends... some new and some VERY old.
, the lovely hybrid genie from the good old GameBoy Color
games,..I did her sprite in April of 2011
for the NinXCap project
, due a misunderstanding that I made thinking she was a Capcom
character. (well, she's not
). For celebrate her new title (Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
) that is coming to Wii U
and the others platforms, and the 3DS
one (Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
) I resolved to post this here.
next, we have Valentine
,... oh, that game..I just fell in love for that game,..and not even is something to do with those voluptuous girls on the battle (
well, not at all.
), but was the art style,.. the feeling of a 90' fighting game, the gameplay... the soundtrack,.. everything!
I can't pick a favorite chick from this game, but I sprited the nurse Valetine
(love her Blockbuster move). This sprite was done in June 2012
here we have Sparkster: The Rocket Knight!
, you must remember him from his gold days from SNES
and SEGA Genesis
games. I used his sprite from the SNES
game as base and then I resized it for a better equivalence between my other sprites.. of course, after that, I gave a treatment of a brand new sprite for him and I put his new design on it from the (poorly) "Rocket Knight"
that was released for Steam, PSN
. (I just kept the hair outside from his helmet as a characteristic thing)The Bear and The Bird, of course
(I know that you already understood that I'm in a "Banjo-Kazooied"
vibe at the moment, Gah-huh!
)... I couldn't miss the oportunity to put those guys in my repertoire. Besides the horrible
thing that was Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
, I can accept their new designs (with a little change in Banjo eyes, you know),...principally to Kazooie
, she now is really looking more female
(when I was a kid, I always thought she was actually a boy, lol). My only comment here that I used the
sprite to help me with Banjo's snout, but everything else was 95% custom.
and then, this little cute thing called Meat Boy
. 'u'. his game is pretty hard and cruel (lol), and was just one of the reasons that make me love his concept. I never was deeply in the experience, but I thought that would be cool make a sprite for him. Besides, some of my friends enjoy a lot of Super Meat Boy
, and this was a kind of gift. And in any case, I think that Meat Boy represents very well all the genre "Indie"
. He's like the mascot of all the Indie Games
. So there's no doubt that he is a character that I think that is worth to sprite. --------------
