Belly Dancer, Nurse, Knight, Double and Meat by TheGuy07 Belly Dancer, Nurse, Knight, Double and Meat by TheGuy07
More mixed stuff here, friends... some new and some VERY old.

first, Shantae, 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 from Skullgirls,... 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. =P), 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 and XBLA. (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! :P)... 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 :iconosm1017: 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. =)

Suuuuuuuper Meat Boooooy!
It really does look like Meat Boy made for a SNES Game.
Banjo-Kazooie is the best sprite here hands-down

Thanks for all the compliments, I'm really glad that you liked ^^.

I really love your work.
Banjo and Kazooie - best sprites ever.

Is there any way you'd consider working to make a Smash fangame for sprites? Me and about 11 other friends of mine are making it.

Additionally, whatever happened to that Nintendo x Capcom project?
TheGuy07 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2013
Thanks for the compliments, at first place. XD.. thanks a lot! =)

second, I already helped a team with a SmashBros. fangame, ...directly and indirectly, with Sprites, Backgrounds and other ideas.. was Super Smash Bros. Crusade,.. my Bomberman sprite is there, and Ryu will be very soon. =D.. but sorry, I can't help anybody right now, .. my life is a mess, and I'm trying to organize everything, principally the spriting stuff (which I have some requests and art trades delayed);
About the NinXCap question (thanks for your interest, first ^^), I paused that for give focus in those delayed sprites that I mentioned here.... but it's not canceled, very soon I plan to show big things for the project, don't worry. =)
Keybladeguy Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
No prob. I really love your work.

Yeah, I know, Crusade. That said, despite how good a game it is, they may or may not be updating from your sprites to match the style of their own customs. Bomberman unfortunately doesn't match (yet). That said, Bomberman is one character we'd like to possibly use your sprites for. Is that alright?

You're very welcome. I thought Nintendo X Capcom was a good idea, and thought it got cancelled, which made me sad.
TheGuy07 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013
Thanks again. =D
SSB Crusade is still in developing... and already improved a lot! the team is working hard for a good final result. ;)... and of course it's okay to use my Bomberman, it's pleasure to help... just, as usual, don't forget the credits, please. =) .. and nice to know you're one interested in NinXCap, I hope that I can update the project as soon as possible. ^^.
