Spriting? What the hell would that be now?

Postby N.K. » Sat Dec 01, 2007 2:25 am UTC

If this is in the wrong forum, then sorry, but it seemed to fit.

Moving on...

First, a website me and my friend have. Miscellaneous files is awesome. By the way, I'm rancher there.

SECONDLY.

Spriting is rather obscure, so I'll explain. You know those old, pixelly characters you had in, say, the GBA games or the old sonic games? Those really pixelly guys?

Those are sprites.

-My personal Sonic, mostly custom-made.. Creds to Chaos Studios and Danial Sidney.

-8-Bit style human. 100% custom, except the poses underlined in green. For those, creds to Vortex.

Let's see some animated GIF's of those:

And my avatar too. =D

Also, Work-in-Progress-Calvin and Hobbes.

SO THERE.

Nice. I wish I was able to do stuff like this, but I'm really bad at low resolution stuff in general.

@o0o0xmods0o0o: Thankies.
@Maseiken: Alas, no. Friend of mine (N1) gave me that. D:
@Falcon: It is hard cramming detail in very little sprites. Gets easier after a while, though.

It looks really good!

Might feel a bit more natural if the feet were static when he isn't stepping. Right now it looks just a bit "off" when they slide as he bounces up and down.

But well done overall.

If you'll just notice my avatar (and if you learn that I made it), you can easily guess that I like spriting, too. I don't claim to be very good at it, but I like this art form very much.

I pretty much had to, though. I was hard core into GBA game editing a while back. Wanted to be one of those guys who could change anything he wanted...to be able to completely remake a game. Being able to remake graphics is a key step in that process. I don't really mess with it anymore, but I still love hanging out in places where people still do and seeing what they've concocted.

It's really impressive to see someone step up from making sprites out of bits and pieces of others to making sprites entirely of their own technique. While I don't think it's all that great to copy art styles instead of being original, I can appreciate the difficulty the spriters I've seen must go through to make such an original work fit the style of the environment their sprite is intended to go into.

@VTHodge: Thanks man. I see what you mean about the feet, I'll try fiddling with that later.

@Hecta: Yay, another spriter. Thanks.

SHAKE THAT ASS SONIC.

Oo, spriting. Those Sonic ones are pretty awesome...

I used to be a spriter for a FullMetal Alchemist fan game a friend was making in RPG Maker XP (RTP sprites, mainly). I've gotten a bit out of practice though.

A friend of mine collects sprites, and does some minor editing.
