Title: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on May 24, 2011, 09:48:17 AM
Hi Gang,

This thread is for anyone in need of sprites/tiles from games, whether custom or original.  
This is also a good thread to showcase any work you guys have been working on.  We have a lot of talent in this Forum, as well as people in need of resources for whatever projects they need.

So if you have a request, or you saw a cool spritesheet somewhere and want to show it, feel free to do so here.
Note:  Please do not hotlink to sprite sites (Spriters Resource, Pixelation.net, Shyguy Kingdom).  This is for something you either created, found (that cannot be credited anywhere), or ripped on your own.  If a sprite artist gives you permission, you may put up their works, as long as you host the image somewhere.

You can also showcase maps and palettes you may have worked on.

Not particularly promoting Sprites Inc, or any other sprite website since I typically do all my own sprite rips. However, I think we should list, probably in the first post, known sites for sprites.

Sprites Inc is one;
http://www.sprites-inc.co.uk/vania/ (http://www.sprites-inc.co.uk/vania/)

Sprites Inc use to have some lax policy on quality, but they've seemed to have gotten somewhat better at least. They probably have the largest collection, and most complete per game. Though they haven't updated since 09', so it doesn't have OoE. I wouldn't take their sprites as gospel, since they do make mistakes, miss things, or improperly format things from time to time, but it may be a good start and or general idea of what is out there. I can't honestly think of any other sites at this time with remotely respectable quality, as like I say, I get nearly all my rips privately.

I have an odd request, I'd like to have a CVC-styled Simon Belmont sprite that would fit in with the COTM style. I like the COTM style, it reminds me of the classic Castlevanias. Anyone think that would be possible?

It's definitely possible, but you should probably provide a template.  So you mean a CVChronicles Simon Belmont with the dimensions of CotM's characters (small & slender) and the same types of animations?

////////////////////////////////

I'm showcasing Simon's Quest's Simon Belmont, by the way, based on the box art.
The hair and the armor can be palette-swapped to different colors (so you can have him blonde just like the boxart, or redhaired, like CVChronicles, or brown haired like how I have it, and how CV4 has him).
The box art seems to use cloth gloves and cloth boots.  I went with silver gauntlets and silver leggings instead.  Although those can be palette-swapped, you'd have to alter the gambeson color along with them because it shares a few of the indigo colors.

More to come later.  Here's an animation for now.

I've been playing around with the OpenBOR engine, and I want to make a Castlevania-styled game with it. The engine itself is very friendly for someone with no coding talent like myself, and in test with a character I've made it's easy to make that classic gameplay feel that I like.

First, gotta say that your Simon is awesome! Very nice work! Now as for a template, what all would I need to make one? I have an idea of what's needed, just want to make sure though.

Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on May 25, 2011, 05:13:42 PM
A template for a full spritesheet, for someone to make, would be:
-dimensions (width, height) of a regular stance
-types of animations and level of complexity.  For CotM, you have three frames for a walk, one frame for jumping, one frame for falling, etc. so it's rather simple when you compare it to, say, Symphony of the Night (Alucard has a ridiculous number of sprites just for walking, because of the Cape).
-Color Style and Limit (3-color NES, 7-color Retro, 15-color standard)
-Composite or broken sprites.  This is mostly for enemies, but it also works with protagonists.  The latest games have used a Marionette-style template for enemies, where you have sprites of individual parts, and the enemy programmer and enemy designer marionettes the single sprites into a cohesive composite sprite.

If you want CotM mimicked perfectly, then just find me a composite spritesheet (nothing broken up into tiles) of Nathan or Hugh and I can, given enough time, make a similar sprite set with Simon.  Just don't hold your breath since I've been doing a lot of projects lately. xD

Also, thanks for the Simon comment. :)  He came out pretty nice.  I'm nowhere near done with him yet though.

Reminds me of Chronicles Simon's animation, with CV2 design. Very nice.

The only thing I have to crit at face value is the frame where Simon's left shoulder shows around the back. Looks completely off. I'm not even sure at that angle you'd ever see it in the back. Even if you would, it's too abrupt, and visible to a much greater degree than it should be.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on May 25, 2011, 10:07:05 PM
Yeah I looked at that.  I'll mess around with it more tomorrow.
You're right that it looks off (not 'completely' off, but off... but I know you have no concept of gray values and deal only with black & white :P :P :P).

EDIT:
I fixed that thing UZO was talking about with the arm, and touched up 50 other things or so, so now it's a lot smoother of an animation.
Everyone!  Hit CTRL+F5 so you can refresh to the new version (if using Firefox)! :P

EDIT:
Added crouching! :D
Seamless crouches from the action stance and from the town stance (as seen by the GIF).

EDIT:
Added a Basic Jumping/Falling animation!

I don't think your Simon sprites really fit the classic CV walk. You'd be better off giving them a more fluid, and natural walking animation

Well the beauty of it is, you can edit those colors (at least the three brightest blues) with your own palette.  Why don't you try it out?
I'm interested in seeing other palettes.  I've tested out quite a few that look quite nice.
You can edit the gold set to turn it into a silver-lined armor, you can definitely color the red set (two colors) to get stuff like CV1's armor or CV4's armor.

you should really go for a different walk animation; right now it feels like he's got an 8bit castlevania movement inspired animation, and it's really stiff and feels kind of lifeless. personall; i would go for something composed more like SC4's. it was essentially the 'same' but there was more life, and power to it.

I'll actually disagree with you there. Just the fact that he lifts his feet instead of sliding along is vastly superior to the NES animations.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Claimh Solais on June 02, 2011, 06:47:05 AM
Well, with Simon's pose with his arms down, he'd look like he'd have more of a DXC Richter walk, or may LoI Leon/CoD Hector/Trevor/Isaac. But with the pose with his arms up, the classic Belmont walk works fine.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on June 02, 2011, 09:28:46 AM
With the arms up higher, it's more classic (as Claimh Solais says), that's really more the reason I'm doing it that way.  It would be, after all, a remake of a classic title.  If I ever did Leon Belmont 15-color sprites, I might animate him far differently.

Also, I'm working on stair animations but they're not fully baked yet.  Hopefully over the weekend they'll look nice.

@Jorge
Ever see Vedora-Kingdom's Leon sprites? Those are pretty nice, other than a few stiff movements and problems with how thin he gets occasionally.

There's a link to his sprites. I think he used the Dungeon banner Leon sprite as a reference and worked off of it, but yeah.
http://a.imageshack.us/img827/6500/0xcdleontest.png (http://a.imageshack.us/img827/6500/0xcdleontest.png)
And if anyone's wondering, Vedora says anyone may use his sprites as they please. They may also edit and everything and stuff. Says so on his Kingdom of Vlahado website.

And that is how Simon would walk in the arms-down pose. (:

Those are quite nice!
BTW, any sprites in this forum's banner are either official, or I made them (except for Nathan, which belongs to a sprite artist named "Camus").  I made Leon, Pumpkin, Gabriel, Kid Dracula, Aeon, Grant, and others.

And also BTW, here are rudimentary stair sprites for CV2 Simon.  I did not care too much about the step placement because if they were to be used in a game, they'd never be on-step with the stairs anyway (Belmonts like to skip steps when they go up and down the stairs, it seems).
(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.inverteddungeon.com%2Fjorgefuentes%2Fimages3%2Fcv2new-simonbelmont-1-1-climbupstairs2.gif&hash=a18cf805c5e3fed574242318bac12e4d)

I'm aware that the stairs are hiding some of the feet.  My animation program is stupid.
But rest assured, when the entire thing is completed, I'll upload the spritesheet.

Huh. No wonder a lot of them are pretty darn good. I like Camus's Nathan. The quality of it is actually better than Cyberdragon10k's. Of course, a few of the banner sprites though look a little odd.

Sonia's legs look a bit misshapen.
Grant's pose looks pretty uncomfortable.
Cornell's upper body looks misproportionate to his lower body.
Reinhardt just looks... odd.

That's all I really think look odd. Other sprites, such as Gabriel and Desmond look really cool. And then Aeon looks amazing. :D You ever think about doing full sprite sheets of them one day?

I guess I'll post my very brief edit of Richter, too:

This was going to appear in my homebrew Castlevania, when Richter gives Maria a brief tutorial. Later he would appear with the SotN outfit, just to tell you "hey, you-know-what is gonna happen now!".

Whoa, that is a really nice outfit. :o Is it based on his DXC outfit or is it just a whole new design?

And I dunno why, but your homebrew sounds rather interesting, despite the vague description you gave.

Huh. No wonder a lot of them are pretty darn good. I like Camus's Nathan. The quality of it is actually better than Cyberdragon10k's. Of course, a few of the banner sprites though look a little odd.

Sonia's legs look a bit misshapen.
Grant's pose looks pretty uncomfortable.
Cornell's upper body looks misproportionate to his lower body.
Reinhardt just looks... odd.

That's all I really think look odd. Other sprites, such as Gabriel and Desmond look really cool. And then Aeon looks amazing. :D You ever think about doing full sprite sheets of them one day?

Many of those sprites were made ages ago, so they're not as good as sprites I make these days.  Grant is in the middle of a walk animation though.
I have some extra sprites of Aeon, actually.  I may put 'em up at one point when there are enough for something worthwhile.

Also, you mentioned you used my sprites as a base.  I'm totally cool with that (people tend to do that, it's fine), just drop me a credit on your sheet somewhere for the starter base sprite.

Cool. And yeah, I noticed that those sprites weren't as good as some of the stuff you posted up. Plus, I saved them ages ago, so whatever.

Well, I didn't exactly base it on your sprite. Rather I only took the palette. Everything else I just sprited over Richter. Well, if its okay with you, then cool. I'll put a little cred to you in the full sheet.

Here's a sprite of Trevor in his CoD outfit. Made by me of course. (:

I have a pet peeve with people using Richter as a base sprite... for two reasons:
1. It's usually very obvious that Richter was used.
2. I haaaaaaaaaaate Richter Belmont.  I think he's overhyped/overrated.
If people must use that type of Belmont, they should use Fake Trevor and figure out how to do stair animations like how Thaddeus did it.

Oh. lol.
Well, I originally posted the sprite on Serio's board, and then attempted to hotlink it from there. But for some unknown reason hotlinks to his board send you to a porn website (lolwut?), so I just added the attachment from my computer instead.

I'll admit Richter edits are getting pretty old, but hey, he's the easiest one to work with. Of course, I have tons of other projects that don't involve Richter, such as my DXC and SotN young Marias. Then there's also my CV3 Alucard. I'm also attempting to redesign Simon. I imagined this Ayami-style outfit for him in my head and I want to make it. (:

Oh I know why that is.

Serio used to post here long ago, but his constant misbehaving conduct caused him to be banned.  It seems he's held a grudge against the forum ever since, though I hear tell other boards have had other problems with him that were worse.  This is why anything hotlinked from his forum/site to here (specifically to here, I think) doesn't quite work out as expected.

I used to do the character portraits for his game, too.  I did the Kid Dracula spritesheet and helped in giving CV4 Simon Belmont a roll, a dodge, and superjump attack.

Just so that you know.

Yeah, I knew about the portraits. Didn't know about Simon, though. He said something about Sypha once, too, but I didn't really read the post. I wasn't even a member of his team at the time either.

It's the DXC outfit, but the idea is to give him only a few frames to make him into a decent NPC. And I'm honestly tempted to use Ralph's Fake as a base, just because Richter's sprite is almost 20 year old and seeing all those edits of him causes my eyes to bleed.

Yeah, or maybe try spriting out a new standing pose for him at least. It'd be weird for an NPC giving a tutorial to be standing in a battle pose, unless you have to attack him or something.

On another note, he was reasonable in his argument when I made a crack at the name Ricardo.

Over here, we call the red guy from Castlevania Bloodletting "Hanz".  Is that the character you refer to as "Ricardo"?  Or am I completely wrong and this is about something else?

I've seen him referred to as Ricardo. But I am one of the people that refers to him as Hanz. I was more referring to the correct translation of Eric Lecarde's name as Eric Ricardo. I told Serio to use the name Lecarde instead cuz Eric Ricardo sounds like the name of a "gay porn star" (and in truth, it is, someone I know watches that stuff and feels the need to talk to me about it). Then he assumed I was referring to the name "Ricardo" itself, when I actually like the name, just not grouped with "Eric".

The blue coat prototye-Trevor sprite I believe is what he's talking about. In the MUGEN fangame Dracula X something (forget the title) I believe they named him Ricardo, and gave him a musket style weapon.

That was actually a pretty good fan game. Has it progressed at all? Where can it be found/does it have an official website?

That Simon sprite is nice, but I second a different walking animation. Also, I think he would look a bit better if you trimmed his calves up some. You know, gave them a more defined shape and made them look less cylinder-like. Something about his legs in the action stance looks like it could be made a bit better. It may not be that, exactly, but something.

After looking it up; The game's name is "Castlevania X", and the name used in the game for that character is "Lucius" apparently.

I'm annoyed that the game doesn't allow you to change the key config though. Even if you hack the options menu back in, the configuration doesn't change your controls. Super lame.

Mine. ^.^ The Hector sprite there is... not so well made (the guy got much better and I like his sprites lots now), and I laughed at the irony of the situation.

Not that I'm bragging and saying my sprites are better. At least he could scratch sprites. I can't. >.>
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on June 06, 2011, 09:24:02 AM
Who was it?  The sprite seems familiar.
Speaking of Hector, I had the beginnings of a walking animation for him:
(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.inverteddungeon.com%2Fjorgefuentes%2Fimages3%2FAni-HectorWalking1.gif&hash=989f7ea217ada47d988af9ad77ce4a2b)
He's missing hands (completely) because the hands were supposed to be attached to various weaponry he was to carry around.... but that never happened, so here's the WIP without hands (just 'nubs' at the end where the hands kinda would go). xD

EDIT (with critique):

Well, right off the bad I notice your Trevor uses more than the usual number of colors, and yet looks like he's not using enough colors.  This is probably because of the low contrast the colors are using.  You've got very nice leathery browns, grays, and greens, which would be great for a 3D model, but for a sprite, it makes it look very plain since usually a hero/main character sprite is supposed to stand out.

I would probably start using more high contrast colors like green instead of gray, and a slightly brighter brown, to bring him up.  The other thing is, I'm not fond of the tuft of hair on his head.  I realize it makes him look just like the artwork for CoD Trevor, but it just looks like an Afro to me in the regular 'stance' animation (his hair looks better in the attacking animations).

Lastly, there's a lot of three-color line-shading going on in some of the sprites.  Line-shading is where you're just using three colors progressively getting darker, in a line, in order to create depth, but the problem is that it makes things look very amateur-ish.  Specific examples are the the boot in his very first jumping sprite (sixth from the left, first row).  If you notice, the boot is just three colors progressively getting darker at the bottom.  Line-shading, like Pillow-shading (a similar problem but appears more in bulbous areas) is particularly apparent, here.  It's not nearly as apparent in his regular stance, though.  That's a pretty nice-looking stance.  I might give him more of a crotch bulge though, 'cuz he's got a female crotch right now. xD  Again, this is just personal preference.

Blame Serio. I'm using his color palette.

Again, blame Serio. The only thing I did was the new walking animation and the unfinished sprites toward the bottom.

Lastly, there's a lot of three-color line-shading going on in some of the sprites.  Line-shading is where you're just using three colors progressively getting darker, in a line, in order to create depth, but the problem is that it makes things look very amateur-ish.  Specific examples are the the boot in his very first jumping sprite (sixth from the left, first row).  If you notice, the boot is just three colors progressively getting darker at the bottom.  Line-shading, like Pillow-shading (a similar problem but appears more in bulbous areas) is particularly apparent, here.  It's not nearly as apparent in his regular stance, though.  That's a pretty nice-looking stance.  I might give him more of a crotch bulge though, 'cuz he's got a female crotch right now. xD  Again, this is just personal preference.

Well, I still am an amateur at this. I took up spriting not too long ago. I can fix the line-shading.
The jumping sprites were made by Serio, so again, blame him.
He didn't have a crotch bulge to begin with. XD

So yeah, everything but the walking anim is Serio's. I only added a few fixups, since they were really old sprites.

I'm still more particularly fond of my Richter edit up in the corner. o.o
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on June 06, 2011, 09:46:48 AM
Haha, I'm not gonna blame him.  But the character itself does seem kind of color-less.  This is fine since it matches the artwork, but I would imagine it makes the character look washed out when compared to characters with brighter palettes.

You don't have to fix anything if you don't want to.  Just a few things I noticed.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Claimh Solais on June 06, 2011, 09:52:19 AM
I'm not necessarily saying blame Serio for all the mistakes. Haha. It's just a saying I use commonly, kinda like the "We can all agree" thing I winded up using when it came to the PSP SotN's voices.

In all actuality, I gotta fix up any problems before submitting them to Serio for his project, cuz his partner Cyberdragon10k is VERY strict when it comes to the sprites.

He does amazing contrast work and can really convey darkness in his spritework and tilework.
Unfortunately, he falls off the Internet quite often, so finding him is often a taxing endeavor.

Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on June 06, 2011, 06:57:22 PM
I'm debating if I should give him the MultiDirectional whip... technically he didn't have this ability in Simon's Quest...
I could also go for broke and add the standard animations for Metroidvanias... that's... let's see:

Dodge (hee, I can probably make him backflip, but I did make a Dodge for CV4 Simon so I could just do a backdash-style one)
DoubleJump
SuperJump
ItemCrush
Death in the Air
Death in the Ground (Classic, haven't done it yet)
...or something else.

I think I will replace the 'rib' shield with just a forcefield that appears if he gets hit by a projectile whilst having the Rib item equipped.  It's never made a lot of sense to me to see him with a Shield.

Right now my CV2 Simon Belmont has a grand total of 73 animation frames. ;)

I could also give him a Counter/Guard animation, but I haven't thought it through yet.

RIGHT NOW THOUGH he just needs the following:
-stairsup-frontleg-getting hit
-stairsup-backleg-getting hit
-stairsdown-frontleg-getting hit
-stairsdown-backleg-getting hit
-death (classic)
-damage knockback
-subweapon animation (replace the final frames of the whipping animation with a slightly different version; easy peasy)

Rondo had a "gettinghit while crouching" and "getting hit by a minor attack-no knockback" set of sprites too.  I might make those.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Claimh Solais on June 06, 2011, 07:10:50 PM
That sounds really interesting. If  you did make those, then someone could probably make a fluid Metroidvania version of CV1 or CV2.

Multi-directional whip is cool, but you should probably limit it to him whipping down-forward and downward like in Chronicles. (His CVC appearance WAS based on his Simon's Quest outfit anyway).

I think the CV4 Simon in the banner should be replaced by yours. Yours is tons cooler.

Trevor sprites by Serio and me.
Colored Richter in corner by me.
SotN Richter by Serio.
Hector by Arukado.

I also agree not enough colors, but design wise the costume is on point! With some more sprites for the animation this could be outstanding!

I'd add more colors if I could, but I'm not good with palettes. For almost every sprite project, I get permission from someone else to use their palettes. I've never been good with colors. D:

That's a shame, Solais.  You only get good with practice.
Once you get good with color usage, you can really make your characters pop.

One of the things in sprite art creation that one must be aware of, is that your character is going to be always within a game's backdrops.  You take into account the backdrops of the game as you create the character, so that he or she is versatile no matter what background is in there, as well as the style of said backdrop.  CoDTrevor's colors are fine... in that they match the artwork.  However, if you put him in a game like, say, Rondo of Blood (just as an example), you'll notice he will not be as noticeable as the backgrounds in the game, since the backgrounds use vibrant colors with high contrasts, while he uses the subdued low-contrast colors of the artwork.  As such, I suggest you turn his color contrast up.  If he's got grays, make them brighter grays.  If he's got a secondary color like a green, then make sure the grays and the greens have contrast.  This will make the character pop out more.

This is one of the reasons my CV2 Simon looks a little weird; he's using the box art's colors.  In reality, when he gets placed into a game, his color palette will have to be altered so that it matches the type of game it is.  If it's a dark atmosphere game like, say, DraculaXX (the SNES one in stages like the Clock Tower), then Simon's palette will have to be toned down so that it's not as poppy as it is now.  If my CV2 Simon were thrown into Rondo of Blood or the DS titles (or Harmony of Despair), I think his current palette would fare well, as those games use brighter palettes for the backgrounds.

Oh, speaking of my CV2 Simon, he can whip in the upper directions now. ;)

To be honest the way the hands are positioned for the upper and diagonal animations look a little awkward. Looks good otherwise.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on June 13, 2011, 12:51:55 PM
Yeah I think he needs a whip in his hand in order for those animations to look better.  He's got more frames than CV4 Simon (whom only uses three for diagonal whipping and upper whipping).

I should post something with a chainwhip to showcase better.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Inccubus on June 13, 2011, 01:02:09 PM
I'm more referring to how the upper looks like the palm of this hand is facing his... uh... face. And how the diagonal looks more like he's thrusting rather than whipping.

I'm working on palettes. I've tried making a few sprites using my own palettes. My biggest problem is just selecting colors that blend well. Once I finish the sprites, I'll experiment with Paint.NET to see if I can make a brighter palette. Of course, Serio's game generally uses dark and broody backgrounds, so he might fit in well. Dark and broody are the types of games I'm going for, too.

And yeah, the upward whipping animations look like he's thrusting his fist into the air. It's not as noticeable on the straight-up one.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on June 13, 2011, 05:13:40 PM
I think that, once you put the context of the whip's location & placement, the animations make perfect sense.
They look odd only because there isn't a whip in his hand.

Perhaps this should help:

Yes, there's one frame in which the foot is slightly bent toward, so since my boots are more like greaves, there'd be a little extra sheen in there.  I might edit it though.

I only added it to prove a point, but yeah, Fake Trevor has a similar one (only it's got a gradient of colors and is translucent).

-Same as above, but for CoD Trevor.

-Same as above, but for SotN Richter.

-You know the HUD portraits from CV3? Could somebody possibly make me some for Richter (both RoB and SotN outfits), Leon and Chronicles Simon?

-And lastly... does anyone have the hit grunt sound effect from the NES CVs? They're not included in the NSFs...

If you help, credit will be given where credit is due. Thanks. ^^

Already made the getting hit (and getting hit on stairs) as well as Death.
What's missing is:
-SuperJump
-Whip Swinging
-Whip Attack (in the air)
-Directional/Down and Down Whip attacks
-SubWeapons (and their 'on stairs' versions).

@Jorge
Ever see Vedora-Kingdom's Leon sprites? Those are pretty nice, other than a few stiff movements and problems with how thin he gets occasionally.

There's a link to his sprites. I think he used the Dungeon banner Leon sprite as a reference and worked off of it, but yeah.
http://a.imageshack.us/img827/6500/0xcdleontest.png (http://a.imageshack.us/img827/6500/0xcdleontest.png)
And if anyone's wondering, Vedora says anyone may use his sprites as they please. They may also edit and everything and stuff. Says so on his Kingdom of Vlahado website.

And that is how Simon would walk in the arms-down pose. (:
I started hearing Leon's theme in my head the moment I saw these. XD


Yknow, Im in no position to critique when I can barely sprite, (I usually just edit and frankensprite. Scratching is slightly beyond me.) but @ Jorge, I really dont like the way your Simon's feet look. They seem too small. Tiny. And in his regular standing sprite, they look too rounded to me.

Just my opinion, but it was really bugging me.

Speaking of which, if any of you know a bit about Mega Man sprites, particularly the Mega Man 8 style,  I wouldnt mind a critique of my ONE scratch sprite

Wow. You can actually scratch. (I can't)
I'm not too familiar with the Mega Man series, but I have played enough of the games (and edited sprites) to know a thing or two. The only think I find that irks me (from what I can tell) is the shading on the leg in the foreground. Something about it looks odd, and the transition between the colors is a little abrupt. Or something. Also, it looks slightly (SLIGHTLY) pillow-shaded. Just that one leg though.

I can give a more in-depth look once my damn computer loads, and I can actually open up Paint.NET and take a look (and finish recording my lines for a Halo machinima).

Yet, my sprites are still a little on the amateur side. :P

But in all honesty, I like that sprite. I envy the people that can actually do scratch-spriting. >.<

Speaking of your sprites, I think the way you're placing highlights is doing more bad than good. They seem to be specks following a vague lightsource, it just makes them seems as noise rather than building form. I think rather than spreading them out just for flavor, you should have broader highlights with the intent of accentuating form and folds. Also, you have a random dark blue pixel on his coat that's used nowhere else.

That blue pixel used nowhere else is probably a spot I missed when recoloring his coat. >.< For the most part, on the coat and pants, that's all just recolors from the original outfit. But from what I can see, your edit of my edit looks... pretty cool.

I used the CV2 color palette for Simon, and Uzo's palette for Jorge's Leon. I'm trying to find someway to fix up the palettes for them so they don't look as pale. I have to stick with 3 colors, since RPGMaker doesn't support that layering concept without some extensive coding. ^^

Woot. Double post again just cuz I got more to show off. ^^ Hope that's okay.

TA-DAAAAAAA
It's a Metroidvania sprite sheet for classic Simon. It was part of a sprite project I was making a while back, titled "Badass Castlevania", making larger sprite sheets for characters in the NES/GB age, as well as redesigning enemies and such. There are 6 volumes, one for each game on the NES and GB/GBC. And each volume contains a sprite set for various characters/enemies.

I planned to do this a while back, and even started up the Simon sheet (that being only his CV1 and HD poses). But now I'm actually working on it simultaneously to my game (Greatest Five), and some of these moves will actually be included in there. ^^

I planned more moves for Simon, but I also remembered his CV2 incarnation would need more moves. So CV1 Simon's a basic Metroidvania Belmont.

This took a long time to make. It's free for anyone to use, but please give me a line of credit. ^^

Love those 8-Bit Simon sprites.

But by the way, has anyone ripped the sprites and tiles from the second Cellphone version of Castlevania? I'd love to use those sprites for something.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Claimh Solais on June 30, 2011, 08:47:34 PM
Well, they're not 8-bit style, technically. It's before I even knew what the hell the whole concept was. There's more than three colors, and that's without using layering. I prefer to think of them as retro styled, rather than NES styled (you know, retro 7-color limit?)

EDIT: Or did you mean my Metroidvania Simon ones? If so, then thank you. ^.^

Post by: Mega Man Model T 101 on June 30, 2011, 09:41:57 PM

I could do it if I had the game file. Any links for a download? I'll gladly rip them.

I like the first one better. His sprite was meant to be in a darker SotN-like atmosphere, so the darker color scheme works better.

Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on July 12, 2011, 05:47:54 PM
Yeah that's 'cuz the legs are slightly more 'facing the camera' so perspective makes them look smaller (like the crouching legs of Chronicles Simon).
I did say it wasn't perfect but given the space I have for it, it's not bad.  It certainly looks like he's crawling, though.

As for your edits, I'm not sure I should comment, as they're technically still Serio's work.  So you're changing the palette, huh?  I certainly like the brighter, more Rondo-ish colors (the original's have a slightly washed-out palette but that could just be me, I've not seen 'em in a while), though I realize they're not the same as the Rondo colors.  I don't know what else to say about that.  Critiquing a color palette is somewhat difficult since you might like it but someone else might not...

Warning:  I'm not so sure I did a good job on the going-down-the-stairs animations.  I think I was a few pixels off when I was drawing the legs.  If you use these, make note of that.  I may, once I see them in action, re-do the stairs-down frames to fix anything that's wrong.  I will also periodically touch these up, but I won't really know what's wrong with them until they're used.

So use 'em!  And give credit! :D

When it comes to spriting for me...

I'll get bored of working on one thing at the moment, so I'll switch over to something else to keep my mind going. Trevor Belmont is my main project at the moment, but I'm currently bored on working on it (doesn't mean I'm quitting). And I also got bored of working on my Mobile 3 Richter. So then I winded up making this.

Animating that cape was a b***h. And something tells me it's not right...

Anyway, it's a HoD representation of Alucard. I tried to copy the choppy animation and shading of sprites from HoD, but I might've screwed up.

I used what I think is the Portrait of Ruin Vampire Killer. I just had to rotate one of the whips cause otherwise using it's initial rotation would look odd. In regards to that. I think I'll provide said whip for use.

EDIT

Here it is. I used the coloring from the PSX Symphony of the Night Vampire killer to give it all the frames you could need. Simply because this one didn't have the colored frames, so, here ya go.

Here's a little something I'm gonna be using in my game "Castlevania: The Demon Castle":

It's a redesign of Simon for a hack of CV1 I made years ago called Castlevania Extreme. The only remainder of it left now is an early beta with basically just a remodeled stage one and no BG graphics edited. It's been floating around the interwebs for over a decade. Too bad a hard drive crash killed the 60% finished version of it, oh well. The content from that will be in my GM project.

Anyway this sprite is basically a cross between CV1 & CV2 Simon with a lot of modifications that weren't even implemented in the original ROMhack. Feel free to use it, but make sure to hit me up with a little credit. ^____^

it's currently with a 48pix high character and I'd like to see that resized to a 128px please ?
Anyone up for that ?
It might not be used in the end it mostly in order to have an idea of what it could look like at this size. it's only gonna be the run cycle for that reason. the character animation was mostly based on Shanoa.

Hi im new im not really sure how to go about this stuff but I made Mathias Cronqvest Sprites and im looking for feedback.

I like the general shape of the sprite, specifically the one with the brown tunic and the white top.
However, you appear to be using a few more colors than normal (24 colors exist in the brown sprite), as well as a lot of off-white, so because of that it seems to look a little too pasty.  I get that he's supposed to be already undead/nearly-undead since he's got the Crimson Stone, but there's still too much of similar 'gray' colors in there.

On the other sprites, there are too many off-blacks, and 20 colors.  There are probably a few too many off-blacks that you can probably just omit and still have a nice, detailed sprite.

Lastly, the green/brown mandle colors on the top, in the spot near the crimson stone... that looks like it's missing some definition.  I know you're following the artwork but when you go into sprite mode it's a good idea to make good solid lines rather than use a dithering mesh of colors like that.

That's all I have to say.  I'm not a professional but I think it's sound advice.

This was actually based on the character you play as in a CV clone i've played though little did i know was that she's actually a generic character class in ragnarok online (didn't stop me from making this single sprite though). was thinking of making a full sprite sheet but it'd be useless since i doubt anyone would use it.

so how does it look?

I'm fond of the hair color and the pose.  Is she looking down at the floor though?  Does she wear glasses?
You don't need that many pinks on the hair, or those two (three?) shades of off-black, though.

Those sprites you made look great, but why Coller looks so tall? I thought he was about the same height as Reinhardt.

And uh, I don't know if this is what you want, but here is a spritesheet of Jonathan's whip that I ripped.

She's actually facing forward or whatever the correct term is. I based it off the original sprite that's in the original game so yea. Also she's not wearing any glasses. Though any tips on how to make it not look like she's looking down?
btw, thanks for the feedback.

Yep, that's the game. Though didn't know you guys were talking about it a while back. I'd think discussing an H game is forbidden in a forum like this.

And its fine. I can just screencap whatever pose i want then just sprite from there. Though on the author's pixiv page, he posted the whipping animations so those might save me some time.

I've been waiting pretty patiently for awhile now, so I have to ask, what's the progress on the Sophia Belmont sheet? I haven't gotten any updates and the like since we finished her stance animation, so I'm getting kinda antsy not seeing any progress or anything for a pretty long time.

Is it still in the works? Or was it quietly discarded after awhile and people forgot to tell me? I'd really really like to know.

The game yer talking about is Unholy Sanctuary, right? First guess that came off the top of my noodle when I saw that pink hair and RO Priestess get-up. Though for some odd reason I feel like the stance doesn't look like she's standing with a decent center of gravity... or maybe it's just me.

Personally these are better than serio's. Im not a fan of serio's sprites. I think alot of them have too much detail for castlevania sprites. Dont get me wrong they are good and some are just recolors (that are awesome) but i just prefer the original shape design for them.

@megaman t model thanks bro! Yea,i guess I can,a little,with what,may I ask? :-)

Well, I'm working on a fangame project, and I'm trying to get the animations for the main character made. We have the regular standing stance made, but nothing else, no attacking, walking, jumping ducking, ect. The character is a Belmont so that can probably give you a good idea for how the animations should go and look.

Here's her sprite, Sophia Belmont: (https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fcastlevaniadungeon.net%2Fforums%2Findex.php%3Faction%3Ddlattach%3Btopic%3D3776.0%3Battach%3D1519%3Bimage&hash=02ae8c59a009148efa6df31abd62e732)

A lot of people here are busy with their own sprite projects, so I really don't want to pester them a whole too lot, I do appreciate the work they did to make the stance animation though, it at least gives us something to work with.

Post by: Mega Man Model T 101 on August 29, 2011, 03:09:52 PM
Well, I can't really think of any. Except a neat detail of having a secondary attack.

Like Simon's sword attack in Serio's fighter sheet. Here's what it looks like for an example.

Kinda adding the N64 games thing on having a quick sub attack. While most of the time you'll be using the whip, there will be a few instances where the sword will come in handy.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donoffrio on August 29, 2011, 03:31:43 PM
So,she's gonna have a sword? If so,ive thought of a perfect sword swipe for her..then if its still a whip,ill think more of it..also,may I suggest giving her a more rounded body,longer hair and slim waist,just to give her a more feminine look(she looks kinda buff IMO)? Or at least I cud giv her a little makeover?
:-D
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Mega Man Model T 101 on August 29, 2011, 03:45:07 PM
Well, I found the concept of her from Deviantart, I'll show you the picture.

(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffc01.deviantart.net%2Ffs71%2Ff%2F2011%2F167%2F7%2Fe%2Frichter_style_vampire_hunter_by_akatsukigirl2-d3j3q21.jpg&hash=18a847bff0e0f9393a9e9fed92b7b142)

And she's supposed to be using this version of the Vampire Killer as her main weapon, hope that helps give you an idea of how her whipping animation will look Belmont style.
(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fcastlevaniadungeon.net%2Fforums%2Findex.php%3Faction%3Ddlattach%3Btopic%3D3650.0%3Battach%3D1575%3Bimage&hash=e797c8d8bf8173cdf4c787471b1216d5)

Personally, I'd rather not have her design fiddled with too much. Maybe a slightly more pronounced waist, but that'd be like it. Anything else would make her a bit too fanservicy I think. I don't want her to be overly womanly. That's kinda the problem with a lot of girls and women in today's games. They have something about them that makes them overly attractive. Like say Samus from the original Metroid for Nintendo. While sure you can play her in a leotard, it wasn't overly revealing or ridiculous because her figure was properly in proportion. There was nothing that attracted you're attention to a certain bodypart because she was so in proportion. Nowadays girls in games either have big chests or big butts.

So a slightly more womanly figure, but nothing over the top. Also keep the boots around the height that they are now. I've seen enough playable thighhigh or ankle boots on women for a good while.

Now that's a lot better than anything I could do or attempt! :o

Well, here's a little bit of help with how the whip animation works. You technically mean 2nd and 3rd frames, I even provided a little animation example for it. The second frame, it a bit overhead, as the whip is starting to go up. The third frame is the arm going forward, thus starting to snap the whip forward, and then come forth where as you see the whip is starting to go fully. I really love how you did her coat and skirt so far. ;D

Hey Las here,  Ok well i though this was a good place to show these sprites cause i'm having issues with the back end of alucard's cape. I also need to figure out some shading issues on the back of it. This is some artwork i'm helping ESCO with.I have 3 sets thus far for him a stand attack, ducking attack and jumping attack for a heavy sword(incomplete however).  Here are animated gif files of them and the latest sheet i've made aswell:

Anyone who might have some advice on alucard's back end of his cape especially it would be greatly appreciated. I know ESCO is serious about his game and i really wanna get these sprites looking professional. Thanks to anyone who gives ideas or help. OH sorry bout the gif's i made on clear background so they'd be better viewed if you save and view em through windows internet explorer gif player.

*One last thing i wanted to ask. Is their anyone out there who has all of soma's katana sprite moves. For some reason i don't think the ones i have are A)enough of his sprites for  the move and B)in the correct order. Any one who has them i'd appreciate it if i could get my hands on those. Thanks again!

Al has three sets of midair attack animations, ascending and descending, along with a diagonal downward attack for one-handed weapons. Try to match these for your midair attack animations. By the way, your midair landing greatsword slash animation looks like the legs mysteriously swapped positions, try making it transition to the crouching one instead.

Cool i'll look into that. Thanks. Sometimes it almost seems like it's easier to tell when something works when you see it in gameplay even though animted gifs' are the closest way to tell. I think those jumping sprites will probably be better suited perhaps than what i had for the him cause of his cape. I'm guessing the last two sprites of the jumping one don't need the leg to hit the ground. Don't the players have some sort of landing sprites. I mean it seems characteritic of alucard. In theory i think that would happen then again their would be far more frames than i have, though it would appear i have the correct amount on the standing and duck attack sprites. I do think the jumping ones should line up the same aswell. Maybe i'll just continue a similar pattern except use the cape like in the sprites you've shown for the jumping sprites. I almost tend to think the cape on the stand and ducking attack would slide forward a slight bit thus making it smoosh up against his back leg in later frames. Well i'm gonna sit down again and try and get something that makes more sense for the jumping sprites for sure.

Speaking of which, what program do you use for Gifs? I had a really crappy one which involved long processes to fix even one frame.

Post by: Las on September 03, 2011, 12:52:33 AM
I use the gimp 2.6. I know there's newer version by now. It works really good. I can tell you it is easy to make an animated gif file using it.  What you do is put your first layer down(i usually do it on a clear background). Then go onto the toolbar and go into windows, then down to dockable dialogs and then to layers to open up your layer windows and keep track of your animations. I typically also tend to label my layers aswell by numbers so as to keep track of them. When done save as "the name of your file".gif and save as an animation(very important), make sure "loop forever" has a check mark next to it. And where it says  "frame disposal where unspecified" select "One frame per layer(replace)". And you can change the delay between frames of it too by putting in the miliseconds you want( i typically leave it at 100).  Hit save and walla!!!!

Post by: Las on September 03, 2011, 12:55:37 PM
Yeah Vlad CT, i looked over that sheet you had and i think i've come to the conclusion that alucard's body turns a bit too much in those picks. He would have to come straight down with the great sword for example. Also it seems to not be enough cape frames in it. Their are about 9 frames per animations. It almost seems like nothing on his entire sheet would work with teh small expection of this turn and run the other way sprites. But i think i've found somewhat of a solution. It may work it may not but i think soma's sprites for that seem to have more dynamics to the cape that alucard might see. I think i just have to make it flow better and make it longer plus use the correct grey lining for it. ANy suggestions?
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donoffrio on September 03, 2011, 02:55:23 PM
Walla: lol you mean voila,right?XD
Abt Al,yeah there are quite a number of issues ya got there,the jerkiness in the leg movement at the beginning,his leg all of a sudden bends halfway down in the end..
And the most obvious one,his cape magically shrinks as it flaps down..i would suggest that you try perfecting his hitting animation first,then sketch the cape animation from frame to frame..if you look back a few pages in this thread,my hugh run animation is done similarly..;-)
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Las on September 03, 2011, 03:12:27 PM
Ok i'm back with an update cause the last two animated gifs weren't working so well. THe capes angles were inaccurate.

may be my best yet. I'ts really hard too tell but he's leg is edging closer to the ground so as too land. Also teh cape seems to come down more on a slant. I think this would look more accurate on the back end animations. Ok i may sit and doddle with the leg a bit? Also teh would the cape hit the ground momentarily to go back into the stand position? But besides that any other comments.

Ok i'm reupdating again. I'm trying to bust ass on these sprites and get them right for ESCO. I honestly think most of alucards' cape movement for this move are gonna end up being rather inacurate for the direction in which he swings. I abandoned the other ideas way up on an earlier post seeing how they really weren't working for him.

 I'm trying to perfect his cape so it looks like it's coming down right and what not. I know ESCO mentioned to shade the back end, but i need to get the mechanics down correct before i can take that next step. Anyone think his cape flows good or no? Just trying to get it really nice. I realize earlier today when i morphed Soma sprites to Alucard they simply didn't work(to bad). those soma sprites are nice. But his cape is too small compared to alucard's. I'm gonna try and retweak the duck animations cape so it flows to his back better too. When all the mechanics are done i'll touch up the back end with a bit of shading and do my best to perfect the hell out of these animations. After that it's katana sprite time. Say anyone got his full katana sprites(in correct order) the sheet i got doesn't look right or seem to have enough animations.

Udate 2: Ok so i've updated the sprites once more in an effort to get this godforsaken cape correct, or closer. Maybe i need to take mechanics 101.

I wasn't saying that to be offensive. Yeah these sprites are for ESCO. He made a good point about having things dl. I agree comletely. I probably shouldn't have posted these in the first place. Not anything against anyone but i've already gotten them pretty much taken care of anyways. Oh and yeah i already have some of the soma sprites started not done completely. I feel like i'm missing some animations. I think the ones i have got his arm goes diagonally up right. But i wanna say their are ones that go even further up. I need all his animations for him if possible, i just don't know if the sheet on him from spriters resource is 100% complete. I get the feeling some sheets are not. Well if you or anyone has a full sprite set including swinging fast sword weapons please let me know, i really need those sprites to continue with. Thanks ahead of time!

Nope, they are in fact SoTN Chain Links, I would some Rips from the PoR Whips so I can design extra whips from that source using the SoTN Material.

Oh I do Plan on Changing some of the Animations on Simon 2.0, this will be a project that Uses Priority Flip.
The New Whip Animation will be whipping Right, as a slightly Changed original Animation will mark Left, So the right Hand is intact without basic mirroring
Honestly, it was much easier to Give Jon the Poses as opposed to mofiying the source material.
I think your Sophia and Hugh Sprites are Boss, Keep up the awesome work.
Try out 10 ms per Character Frame to see how smooth your animations can get.

It seems pretty cool overall, but the graphics from it look like they could be used in a mobile cell phone game. Honestly the graphics are like that of the game with desmond belmont.

I can make the PSX, but its about 25+ frames, I can Redo the Pre-Extend links to be consistant all the way through.
Plus the whip never really changes in size, I just Crackles like the SoTN version.

Hey, that's pretty sweet Donoffrio! If Serio was to use Sophia Belmont, that could be her victory pose. I'll see how I can use it in the game.

I know I'm not very far along on my engine at all, but still, I had an idea for an enemy and I'd love it if someone could hash a decent one together for me:

I want an NES-style sprite (i.e. 3 colors + 3 colors for the hidden face) consisting of a mash-up of the robed men from Simon's Quest or Sypha's sprites from Dracula's Curse, or something very similar in design (but not the ghouls, because I need the arms down), and a fishman; or it could be ghoulesque but with the arms down near its side (would take more work, though). Ideally, it would shamble along with its face concealed in the shadow of the cloak, but then it tilts its head back and the cloak shifts back a little to reveal a fishman's head, which then spits at the player before concealing itself under the hood again. It's basically a concept for an elder citizen in a port town predating Innsmouth by many centuries. In other words, the concept would be something like this:

I expect him to look brighter than serio's Richter.

Ever thought of the possibility of it being a mere coincidence? That said, the animation looks fine, but his body still looks a bit too small...or rather his head a bit too big, maybe trimming the hair down a bit would help make it more proportional compared to the rest of his body.

Just FYI Alucard from SotN is a lot taller than other characters. You may want to reconsider the scale you're making these sprites at. At the scale your show here, they would look too tall to fit in with the normal heroes.

To prove a point, they shrunk Alucard's sprites down in Dawn of Sorrow to fit better with Julius and Yoko.

Got on someone else's computer and found these again on Serio's board so I figured I'd post them, since Pemburu was asking for them. These are Julius's HD sprites. All of the original ones from DoS plus the new HD ones. These were ripped by Serio so any credit goes to him. See attachment.

Looks pretty cool.  I think it's using the CotM palette so it's kinda Gold-ish... but Jaguars are that color (Yellow/Gold).  I disagree about it being more orange.

Hey guys! :)
I need your help. Here's part of main town in my game. I need something like town hall, where major works etc. Now it uses background from Dr.X. which is out of style and does not represent what it must be.
If someone comes with idea and makes background for this part of level it will be placed in the game. Feel free to use any castlevania & other sprites, i'm not really about all these copyright stuff since it's just a fan-game. But if you can work out something from scratch it will be even better, of course.
In attachment there's zip-archive (rename from .txt) with .psd file.

Title mock-up for the Rondo of Blood Translation. Needs to be shrunken down to the right size and color reduced.
I made it because I really don't like the one they decided to use. It basically takes the graphics from Bloodlines & I have an impassioned hatred for the reuse of graphics in fangames that are out of place.

it looks pretty nice, especially the color choice. this had been said before but i'm still seeing a julius with dyed hair, i understand this is a WIP so it's probably subject to change right? i'd suggest shortening his bangs if it works well with the sprite. also, i feel that his crucifix dangles too much in the idle animation, like it jumps to one angle/position too suddenly. i'm not sure if you're willing to make intermediate frames or not but i think it would look a lot better.

just forgot about the cross chain ;p wanted to showcase the tattered trench coat. since i want to make my game in a post-apocalyptic contemporary setting with disrupted time (sections of old world gothic realm), i wanted to make items that reflect that - replacing the holy water is the holy hand grenade. the dagger becomes a combat knife, the cross is something like a glaive (like in dark sector game), and the priest will have a shotgun.

Looks like Julius with alternate colors Omen. But I guess that's because that is essentially what it is.

I like the coat, but if I were you I'd try making a new whipping animation. The one that Julius uses is too distinctively his.

omitted some sprites to make it closer to simon whip animation.

Looks like Julius with alternate colors Omen. But I guess that's because that is essentially what it is.

yup...

Something about the whipping animation just looks..off to me. Or choppy. I don't know, I really can't put my finger on what's bugging me. It might be that there's no defined whip-blur (like the transparent purple triangle thing on Fake Trevor's whip), or that it doesn't have Julius' usual "pull-back" frames, but I cannot pinpoint specifically what's got me pegged. He himself looks great though.

That's not quite what I was thinking. It does look less like Julius' anim without the missing frames, but I have to agree it looks noticeably choppy. And that last frame where he's leaning forward into the whip strike is what is most Julius-like. I think you should try using a completely different whip animation and edit the sprites to look like your design IMHO.

Post by: omen on February 16, 2012, 10:06:07 AM
great critique guys, i see what you mean. i think the whip lends to the "choppiness" of the animation cuz i ripped it from simon without editing. i'm going to work on a brand new whip animation, hope it bodes well.

I know what you mean Dracula 9. I've always felt that way about the Julius sprites though.. Something has always just bugged me about him. Same with the John Morris sprites from Portrait though. Just kinda off.

The black outline on his inner coat tail on his right side disappears in his final frame of animation in the whip attack as well.

That's just an awkward whipping motion.

Bullwhip Expert Anthony De Longis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpvIXcAZ74s#ws)

Hard to catch cuz he moves so sanguinely, but he has different footwork for different angles of attack. What you are showing is the vertical attack or possibly even diagonal attack. Notice, for starters, he doesn't lean forward very much. With his sidearm attack, he actually steps forward. For the backhand attack he steps back. Also in almost every case he maintains an upright posture. He doesn't lunge with the whip, he fences with it. He is using light footwork so he can maintain his agility during the attacks. And most importantly, if you watch near the very end, he doesn't straighten his back leg, he drops down into a half-kneel.

Extreme Marksman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9LfTw6K2XU#)

You're not trying to pull the whip forward, momentum will do that; you're trying to pull the whip down so it accelerates faster.

his leg moves too much

didn't know what that meant, so i assumed it meant the back leg moved too far back. the changes made are almost unnoticeable  but somewhat substantial.

EDIT: made the whip animation pivot off the back foot. looks like he's stepping forward. (damien-whip-edit4)

Post by: Las on February 19, 2012, 03:19:56 PM
I'd say overall very nice job on Morris Belmont. On richter very nice too. Maybe an extra animation could be needed to make his hair flopping a bit more(towards back end of attacking).The magma golem looks like a good start too. Juste seems very well done, actually the best imo. Very nicely done on him!!! He does look like like he'd fit right into serio's game. As for hector imo, i still think he needs a bit of work. I do like where your going with on him. Not sure what he's attempting to do on the ducking sprites with his hand. Also on the run sprites though they look very well designed his leg in the back almost doesn't look like it overlaps the front leg enough(gives him a skipping type of feel). On his kick aswell, he seems to need an extra frame or two from what i can tell. A frame or two that gives the bending of his knee motion towards going into his kick. Overall a very nice start to these hector sprites. Tweak some stuff and he'll look pretty stellar for sure!!!

Morris certainly looks good, Juste is pretty slick, Richter is using the GB Belmont, Morris whip, doesn't look too bad at all. Hector not a bad 3D to 2D sprite. And the monster, looks like it can be from anything just about.

A abundance of too many reused SOTN sprites for my taste..not really a bad thing.... It looks like it could use some extra polish, the Leon sprites are the only thing that look original to me...the jumping looks terrible. I know it's early, but if he could fix some issues this could be really sweet.

Post by: TheouAegis on February 22, 2012, 01:16:17 PM
Swear to god I hate that whip animation. I don't think whips even move like that at all. Watch that first vid I posted. The problem with Omen's whip animations (the one on Don's Richter is ok) is that it's unnatural and doesn't trail enough. The whip should remain mostly behind the character while the whip's handle moves with the arm. The length of the whip stays behind and is pulled forward. A loop is formed between the handle and the length of the whip (this is due to the thickness of the whip toward the handle), then the whip's momentum pulls the rest of the whip forward. The whip cracks when the character starts to withdraw his hand (doesn't have to redraw very far, just a flick of the wrist basically). Omen's whip right now stays out front too long and I have always HATED that little wiggle in the middle of the animation.

ok, theo, i'll try the "trailing" whip style, even though i've always thought it looks like they're swingin round a wet noodle. i like the retro castlevania style of whipping. i have to agree with ya theo, bout the whip staying out front and "wiggling." otherwise, i appreciate your critique.

big-ups to theouaegis for pushing the alternate whip style. i think i'm going to change the character's head, i dunno - my original concept had the character in a ponytail but i want to distance his appearance further from julius...

good eye on the leaning head vlad...i fixed that and made some changes, and decided to make the character clean shaven. i was watchin van helsing on television and was inspired by hugh jackman's hairdoo, i only wish i could sprite a decent hat for him.

Wow, they totally ripped you off.

Alright, here's what you do. First, send them an email, but be polite, and ask them why they are using your work without permission. Do NOT mention whether or now you WANT them to use it, or if you will allow them to under certain circumstances. Right now you want to see if they will reply at all.

Next, decide if you want them to use your work at all at this point. You need to make a choice: allow them to continue using it if they credit you, or do not give them permission at all. Post here what you have decided.

Once those have been completed, we wait for the results. Post the reply email you get here, if you get any at all. Don't be anxious if you don't get one right away. OK?

So the reply basically says (in broken English). He found the sheet without it being credited, and he decided to use it anyway. He also goes on to say the game supports mods by others too, so if he doesn't use it someone else will anyway.

So, what did you decide?

That last part he said really comes off arrogant and jerkish. It sounds like hes saying "tough shit, it'll get in there either way, so stop whining."

Post by: Belmontoya on March 04, 2012, 11:21:22 AM
I'm wondering what kind of rights you actually would have over modified konami sprites though? Is there actually anything you can do? I'm not sure how that sort of thing works, just curious.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Las on March 04, 2012, 11:53:00 AM
Hmm... Montoya brings up a good point. If that were konami guys. And they wanted your work you may have little to no choice in the matter. Seeing that they own the character trademarks already that would be one thing. But i do agree, if it is the castlevania online guy, why would he not just simply ask permission??? This isn't right!! I'm totally with Donoffrio and UZO there. Why not just simply ask. I assume Donoffrio some or most of your work was for Serio's fighter and it is you who ultimetly decides where your work goes. With that being said i myself personally would want certain stuff for certain projects. I have already mades a full set of CV3 characters and at least 2 versions for each player. I'm very hesistant about just throwing them up their online. It'll become debatable whether the project i'm in continues, seeing the main coder is no where to be found. Right now i'm trying to code stuff in but i'm very unskilled with coding. So with that being said, i may try a very unlikely shot in the dark scenario. Make every sprite possible for a cv3 remake(perfect them) and contact konami. Even the effort alone would be well worth it even if they do not want anything to do my sprites. At anyrate they could be used for another project or if the one i'm in gets finished.But anyways that is just me and what i may do. All  in all donofrio i would try and contact him. I did talk to a guy but he's not kotai.He does however know him though. If you want i can pm you his youtube link. If you want to talk to him furthermore that's cool but i don't really wanna get in the middle of anything. I am not a fan of drama. Say off the topic, but, has anyone seen or heard from jorge in a while? I was wanting to ask him about some of his cv3 sprites prefreably the ending for trevor and intro(not sure that's him). I wanted to see if i might be able to use that for other players endings which i already have sprited up so i could mesh them. I thought i read somewhere he posted his stuff being open source for community, but i could have misread it. I'd like to be certain their. If he's cool with it then i can put them together. Either way i will ask for first before doing anything rash like that kotai guy. Say speaking of that. The leon belmont sprites by vedora kingdom??? what about him.Also didn't Claimh make a desmond? hmm.. i thought i'd seen a video on that too for his game. Did they give permission? i may be careful posting up sprites now if i were you guys.

Well i did see your video you linked here Donoffrio and i'll be honest your juste looks very cool and very well done.!!!!!  I personally would like to see myself's spritework in a game. But like i said i,myself, would be more concerned about what type of game. Like, say, my cv3 stuff. If it's for a remake i'd be like hell no!!! i want a part in on it. If it were for say Serio's fighter or something that'd be a different story entirely no problem cause it won't conflict with the remake......see what i'm talkin' bout. But yeah i mean the bottom line is this guy outta be asking permission to use sprites. Also i did get a chance to play his online game. Those characters are not yet playable that i could choose from. So maybe he's putting them in and then plans to ask. Still i would think it would get him into trouble to just show the video alone. Why not simply ask? He's eitehr gonna get a yes or a no, and besides that do you know how much easier it is for a coder to get artwork from someone than for a coder to code a game in for soemone else. Shhhhh...eyeah well you get the picture. He will find someone eventually if you were to say no. Say,Montoya, maybe you could post some demo vids on your game when enough is completed or your gonna release a demo. Same their UZO. BTW you guys outta be supporting each other's games both look very good  and sound very promising.

@Uzo
That's where the dude's wrong,i did happen to put my name at the end of the sheet..
All of sudden,i'm thinking of not giving them the right to use it.
But the main point is,those sprites are only intended for Serio's game and nothing more..I can't really reply to them at the moment though,i got school.
@Mont
I keep asking that question many times before too.
Seeing how many others use them,i assumed it was legal.
@Las
No questions there,Las..
And I agree,we should all be careful of posting our work after this incident..
And I dunno weather or not they did ask permission for vendora's leon.Basically at his site,he said his work could be used by anyone and credit is a must,if memory serves me right..
On another note,i also found a screenshot of the game with cyberdragon10k's Nathan in it.

Post by: Inccubus on March 04, 2012, 05:36:31 PM
You know what, though, you have no real rights to the sprites since it isn't our IP to begin with. Even if you don't give them permission you couldn't DO anything about it anyway. The only party that has any right to complain is Konami because it's there IP. I've personally never understood how people make fan works of IP that doesn't belong to them and then complain when someone else uses their work in another fan work that they also don't own. Either way you're not losing anything tangible. All you can really do is ask them to credit you. If they don't then all you can really do is spread the word on your own that you made the sprites. Unfortunately that's how it is. Fan works are only protected from the IP owner as long as you're not trying to profit from them and that's IT.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: uzo on March 04, 2012, 06:09:53 PM
The best you can do is bluff it and hope they buy it. Realistically you don't have much in the way of rights here.

I was hoping they would be reasonable respectable people, but that doesn't seem to be the case. They seem to be of the opinion that they don't care about respecting yours or anyone else's work. So chances are they wont buy it. The only thing you can do now is give them bad publicity, but as the old saying goes; no publicity is bad publicity.

However, do be aware, this is just how things go on the internet. If you never want them used you cant post them anywhere. They will get taken with or without permission if you do. The other option is to not care if they get used with or without permission.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Las on March 04, 2012, 10:41:14 PM
Yeah Donofrio i see what you mean. I really have to say in a sense Uzo's got a point,there is nothing much you can do. You can complain up a storm but in the end the dude will probably use it anyways. The fair and just thing for him to do is to at the very least credit you because we all know you did that artwork. It's not hard to tell when you see someone's art. Same with vedora's and even Claimh's Desmond. But if that we're me and knowing what i know i would just say for him to at least give you credit or pull it. Who knows what he''ll do. I think the smartest move would be in the future to pm Serio or his team members directly without posting up on the internet so as to have your artwork in his game and only his game. For all i know he could have my stuff too???. Now, if it was me personally as long as i got credit i wouldn't mind, cause it's not directly interfering with my plans on the sprites. Obviously after i'm done with my own artwork(mine and konami's i should say) i'd give whoever want the sprites free reign to do whatever. I mean you gotta think too even if serio puts him in his fighter mugen game he could still rip sprites he wants from it. Yeah i agree it's a bit shady, but i would try not to let it get too you. I doesn't make it right but we all know you did it. Whether that guy does credit you or not. Hopefully he rights the wrong and credits you. I for the record(even though i did sorta start this fiasco) am not trying to bring any drama what so ever. I didn't know about this till i'd seen vidoes on it and figured i'd tell the owners of the artwork, so they were at least informed. Personally i'd have more respect for the guy(if i were in your position D) if he gave me credit. Then all would be forgiven. But that's me. You guys handle your opinions how you want too. Ok then,chow, logging off.

Hey, Julian, I wanted to apologize in a sense. I am not meaning to get anyone in trouble or start drama. It's debatable whether or not i should even open my mouth at times. It has been known to get me into trouble. But hey either way i wanted to say i really do think you did the right thing here bud. I also say that your project Castlevania online has a lot of potential and seems very original.Nicely done thus far!!! I actually like the layout because it has an arcade style feel to it which no other vania game does. I would also like to point out,that you should talk to your friend Rune. I gave him something to give to you. You won't be dissapointed! So either way i hope you guys enjoy. Hopefully it will be of help! Also i played your game and it seems some levels aren't playable. I was told you have to unlock them. Do you also have to unlock players? I gotta say it's coming along nicely. Their's definetly some kinks to work out, but the levels and gameplay seem to be pretty strong!    
Luego mi amigo. Buen trabajo en el juego!
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Corpsecrank on March 05, 2012, 09:43:42 AM
I'm working on some models of the doors. These are super flexible to work with. I took the doors and created some 3D models in Illustrator. I traced the front and edge of the door and applied them to the models which allows you to rotate the door however many degrees you need then screenshot the model. So you can start with the door front facing or from the side then make an adjustment screen it then adjust it again rinse repeat to get a smooth door animation. A lot of the door sprites are only the front and edge of the door with no frames between them. I think this is because those graphics were applied to a 3D object and then rotated in the game. Look at door in sotn for example. So anyhow here is a preview of what they look like right now.

That is a screenshot taken directly from Illustrator while I was finishing the initial design. I still have a little polishing left on these before I release the Ai file. I also want to nudge the doors 5 or 10 degrees at a time and screen them and create a PNG sheet containing all the frames. I will release both a frame sheet and the Ai model sheet when I get done so look for that soon.

UPDATE: Door frames are ready and the Ai file is up for grabs too. Someone test out these doors for me and let me know if they all look alright. They should be good to go but I haven't tried animating them at all to see what happens so they may need a minor tweak before they are solid.

10 Frames Reverse all but the closed frame to make them open in the opposite direction.

I won't really be supporting that Ai file you are on your own with it. If you understand Illustrator and how it handles 3D you will know what to do. If not maybe you shouldn't bother getting the Ai file.

Ai File: http://www.mediafire.com/?xh949ojpgo2j7av (http://www.mediafire.com/?xh949ojpgo2j7av)

NOTES: The doors are in 10 degree increments. Starting at 90 degrees on the closed frame and working down to 0 degrees which is full open. These doors are also at the same resolution they are in the original game. I made a 3D model the same width and height and then gauged the Depth based on the width of the closed frame. The Ai file contains a large traced version of the full open and closed frames that was used to texture the models. Each texture is a symbol so removing those large traced frames will result in the texture going with it. You can use the row of models at the bottom of the Ai file to make any changes you want.

You can use these however you want no credit necessary because I essentially stole them anyhow :)

Well,julian..
At least now I know your'e one of the reasonable type of guys..
And excuse me for saying this,it took me all the time I needed for something else to finish up those juste sprites..
And the thought of my name being uncredited in your game and you using without my permission makes me think that you were claiming it as your own..all my hard work gone.. :(
Would you like it if your game was somehow re-modeled by someone else and they didnt credit you? Instead they claim they made it in the first place?? I don't think so..
So please,i'm hoping that you and your team would refrain from using people's work without their permission..honestly,do you have trouble asking? Your english seems understandable enough.
Now,the best thing for you to do now is the above I stated..And also ask permission to the others for their work(vendora's leon)(claimh's desmond(his colour scheme from what I can tell)),see weather they allow you to use their respective sprites and credit them for their and my work on your site and game..also to the videos of the characters.Thank
You very much..
And those juste from imageshack are indeed mine.. But the old and outdated one I made..did he steal them? :x
Jorge,if you would be so kind to translate these for jop? Thanks

You are LaslundLazaro? in youtube i am rune XD and no its right to tell to the others that sort of things, you have a nice collection of things for Castlevania thanks, for the time being only we can change others characters from the game to use other but with a new update Kotai want to create a mode to select the character without the problem to change characters and put other, its not complicated but take time to change character so the select mode will help a lot, its good the idea to unlock the characters i think we talk this with him, i will talk again and see if i can convince

@Donofrrio
I have good news about your character, i think that i upload the sprites to download so that the people can play with him but i did not upload so no one download the character i am more relax for that so no body can use your character but other person use the first sprite sheet that i show you in the other forum so i think that he found that or in castlevania fighter Text board or in another page if some one copy the sprites i will not steal your project but i can not guarantee that someone else do it, mmm the character Desmond i dont do it but yes i use him and same with Leon but i change some sprites but in the post or the most of them i say that this are not my sprite works, and some time i dont find the name of the creator that was your case and you can see in this video i mention Vedora and i because i was altering the sprites of Vedora:

 In another i mention Claim Solains (i dont remember how it was his name) but i remember that i found an incomplete sprites of desmond and a friend finish the job but never forget that Claim do it the first time.
 Well i think its all sorry for talk (write XD) so much

@Jorge D. Fuentes
Thanks the next time that i was to write i will do in spanish and you translate to help better to understand

@Jop But your'e still giving me credit right?
And did you say your friend finished claimh's desmond sprites? I don't think he'll be ok with it..
In any case tho,may I still be able to play as juste? I did drew all of his frames.. And I might be able to help you with the sprites too.. :)

Ok yeah i didnt' know. I thought julian was someone else,sorry i didn't realize i had even caused any problems until i upload the video to vedora's leon that tthings happened, then all these responsed flew out.Once agian my apologies. :-\ Either way a very nice game you got going on their. Yeah i'm pretty sure if you check with most people they wouldn't mind. The way you have that game set up, i swear it looks like it outta be in the arcades or something man ;D ;D ;D. It would be sweet as hell if konami decided to pick that up from you and wanted it in the 'cades or something. Honestly it is pretty kick ass. That would go nice along side of the whip Castlevania game at the arcade. Then again i realize you have it for online purposes,plus you can keep adding more players as time goes by. 8)

Just finished some horizontal rotation frames for the cross from sotn. I used Ai to build a model and used the only frames you can find to build all the textures needed. Once applied I rotated the model from 0 degrees to 180 degrees in 10 degree increments. If mirror and loop this it will spin. If you took it a step further you could reproduce the cross effect in sotn.

I will probably be releasing some more rotation frames. I want vertical and angled rotations for it so look for a full sheet of multi-directional animations when I get around to finishing it up. For now the horizontal rotation should be very useable and probably the only one needed if all you want to do is recreate that sotn effect.

I am also doing the sotn cross sub weapon as a 3d model that will rotate on dual axis as it travels and some return frames that use multi-directional rotation. That will also be coming soon. I have the model built I just need to hammer out the frames.

NOTE: This technique used in the doors and cross so far is the same method that was used to create donkey kong country and killer instinct. It is called ACM or 3D pre-rendering. Provided you can use a graphic without it distorting or throwing off the palate etc you can build a 3D model of your graphic and rotate it to create views you need. Using the model you simply change the view on it and then save that as a flat sprite. In this case I rotated the graphic incrementally and saved out each increment as a new frame.

Again free to use as you please credit given or not. These textures aren't mine.

UPDATE: Currently working on a full sheet containing every 10 degree increment possible. The final sheet will be 2240 frames. It will have views for 360 degrees in increments of 10 and at each increment it will have a full 360 degrees both ways in increments of 10 also. This would allow for any rotation or view you would need. The full sheet will be released as soon as I finish it up. Expect a wait because it has taken hours to get roughly 1/8 of the views done which is where I am at right now with it.

I decided to try to redo the Dooky Faces from Castlevania 3 in higher-res sprites.

(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi5.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fy185%2FRidureyu%2Fscreenshots%2FDookyFaces-Remixed.gif&hash=fc6bdbe42b85dde98c803c838e8f1a51)

As you can see, it's made from the Evil Force in OOE and the guts of Portrait of Ruin's Behemoth, with some gory parts of the tileset used for the brains, hanging guts, eyes, and some other parts.  Since the eyes on the original Dooky Faces were the same color as the rest of the sprite, I decided to give them a gouged-out look.

Maybe. I'm thinking making the gore a little redder, and maybe the faces a little pinker and smoother?  You can barely see the blood between the faces.

Post by: Corpsecrank on March 06, 2012, 12:50:04 AM
I don't remember which one it was but one of the games I believe on the DS had a form of dracula that had some good gut parts and a brain I think also.

Would be cool to see this idea become an entire sheet. That had to be my favorite form out of any of the games. Needs more colors to if you ask me. I know the original was pretty limited being NES and all but bringing more color into this would really make it look detailed. Mostly on the guts I would say. If you keep the colors dark it would look fairly realistic too.

You're thinking of Harmony of Dissonance (http://spriters-resource.com/gameboy_advance/cvhod/sheet/13963) on the GBA, and it really just had some skull, brain, heart, and eye parts, btu that's not a bad idea.

You know, the sprite doesn't really look that bad when you get used to it.  The colors seem to fit, at least.  Here it is pasted onto a scene:

Yeah seeing it in a scene makes it look much better actually. Still the entire thing seems to be mostly one color. That is why I suggested maybe changing the organ colors a bit to see if it helped. Looks pretty good though as is. I still think we need a whole sheet it would be amazing lol.

I can't change the in-game voice yet. So, I won't be replacing maria with an adult girl, like Sonia or Annette.

You should see it in action.

Castlevania: Potrait of Ruin Hanz Belmont hack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nqcu1Vcc8l4#)

What do you think?

Parts of the animation look kind of stiff or something. Not really bad though. Did you do a direct swap out for the original sprites? It looks decent anyhow.

I do plan on changing the sheet drastically from what the others did. I plan on taking my extended richter sheet and using that to build frames for this character. I started building out a decent richter sheet quite a while ago I figured I could take that and use it to build a rival sheet. I still want to build the 32x richter using the sotn trevor as a base since that is what richters sprites became. They used 32x richter to make trevor and the 32x rival to make richter in sotn. It would be nice to build out sheets for the 32x stuff. I have gottan kind of obsessed with the bloodletting lately for some reason.

@ Corpsecrank. Man i seen your last video of all that jazz on the custom richter sprites. You got some great ideas their man. I'm so jumping on the Corpsecrank bandwagon! Hell yeah man, that whip swing turn around thing is stellar for sure. Totally see him with a sheild too! Yeah can't wait to see a demo on that for sure!!! @ Pemberu, some one did do a carrie somewhere, i dunno about Reinhardt. But it'd be cool to see what jorge comes up with too. Also that custom chick you made Jorge is kick ass. Man i had some crazy ideas for a custom game too. Came up with some ideas for a main character and two others so far. One being Abrahm Van Helsing(not Abraham from brahm stoker maybe even Adam Van Helsing, a Dr, Jeckle/Mister Hyde player, and a ninja(which i only started spriting), i thought of coming up with a girl from old england too. But never really came up with any sprites for anyone other than the ninja. I have it mapped out in my head with Abrahm or main player, same with Dr jeckyl sorta. But yeah here is the ninja:

Yeah i know not too origanal kinda a morph from maxim kinshine. BUt it's a start perhaps. I almost like the blue on his shirt but maybe darker. Probably not a mask either, he needs to be different, more direct, not as stealth as a normal ninja.

Holy crap you too Corpsecrank. I'm totally feeling the bloodletting thing too man. Hell i even got that richter/ricardo sheet i found online(most of which i didn't do). I did some extra frame for it too, a death, stairs animations too. If your interested i could post it or pm it too you. Oh i also made some of Hanz too back in the day, extra frames i mean. I think i did a death for him and one or two other animtions to add to what Serio(or who ever did him). Yeah does anyone know who did the sprite sheet with guns on richter/ricardo or hanz. They are impressive as hell. Also i started an edit to gretchen or whatever from Maria. It is just a simple reskin at this point( i didnt' work on it any further) but i did make stairs sprites for her). Also i had some intersting witch sypha sprites which i never fully toyed with they could use a little tweaking too.

Eikes sorry for the double post, i though someone posted in between my post, at least that's what it said before i posted the second one.

Yeah if you have some stuff you could share it would go to good use. It would probably save me a bunch of time anyhow.

I just got bloodletting fever all of a sudden and now I can't shake it. I want to do what you saw with my richter sheet and build a rival sheet. I still have work to do on the richter sheet though. I like the way richter looks in bloodletting so I am pushing to get the rival done or at least up to where my richter sheet is so I can start that. Richter will be tougher I think since there were not enough frames from trevor in sotn. I been wanting to build out the trevor sheet anyhow so maybe I will do that when I start richter.

I am losing some time on my rival sheet just getting the existing frames colored. I am adjusting the palate to fit sotn because the original was to bright. I am using a mix of things to do that. Some colors are just dialed back from the original and some are sampled from other sprites etc. I like the way it's looking though. It looks a lot closer to the brightness level richter has in sotn. Just eliminating the orange and yellow for red and tan makes a huge difference.

That turn around frame for swinging with the whip needs more frames. What you see works and I animated it once in flash just to test how it looks. I should update that animation since I added a couple frames since I did it. But it works. The only problem is that there are only frames to swing then turn around so it just loops and richter swing back and fourth. As for a game well there would be no attack while swinging and you would face the wrong way at times because of the turn around. Pretty much I want to add some transition frames and make other swinging frames so that you can swing the character and turn around with a button press while being able to fire sub weapons off.

Lots or work to do and not nearly enough time lol.

Ok well i dunno what program do you use? I am meddling with game maker now but don't really know how to code well. I have a base engine with alucard runnign back and forth, attacking and jumping. I haven't even figured out how to get his jump frames all working out yet. I do know some of the lingo to use but i'm really a begginer here. Is that construct or something? I've heard of it but don't know anything about it. I did plan on making the 3 player of the bloodletting with stairs animations. And though i hadn't finished i did plan on making a slide for one, and dash attack for the other. But personally your richter's shoulder bash is extremely cool looking. I really dig your ideas with the whole soul floats up to heaven thing. cool concept for sure. And yeah the swinging thing. I would keep that definetly. Ok well either way here is the hanz added sheet(most of which i didn't do), the richter/ricardo i'm not even sure what konami was gonna call him though i think it is was richter originally(half of these are morphed from trevor didn't and didn't quit finish). I also made a maria bloodletting reskin. It's not much really and i was gonna rework her costume totally and hair aswell(but didnt get around to it cause of SCV3). Either way i made stairs animations for her. I did all this way back about a year or year and a half ago. Funny thing is i was planning on trying my own bloodletting a while back but hadn't gotten to it. Ok well anyways. Here's what i had:

I will add the extra couple frames from hanz to my sheet for sure and that is also a great start on richter. I think those richter frames ought to save some time. Maria I haven't considered as much there is a lot to do right now with 4 character sheets all going at the same time along with many other things. But eventually I am sure that will come into use as well.

Still trying to finish out this stage design before anything. I want to finish that up tonight some time so I can get back to working on characters again.

hey pemburu,are you going to learn other methods of replacing sprites besides the copy paste method? that'd be cool dude.. :)

That's what I wanted to, to be able to add and delete frames. I can resize frames to an extent though.

Not to mention modifying the hitboxes, attacks and subweapons, command skills, etcetcetc.
So yeah, I think we're stuck with clones of the original characters when it comes to character modding for the time being.


That is correct, unfortunately. :(


But yeah I'd love to do a Reinhardt & Carrie spriteset.  It'd be awesome.

Hell yeah! I'd love to see it.

Not sure what you meant, I just copy pasted in the Hanz sprites that Serio gave me.

Thanks. There wasn't much work needed to be done for hanz unless he's gonna use a similar whip swing like richter. Imo i would give them all differnt moves and item crashes possibly. That sheet of Maria/whoever was supposed to be the girl(i think gretchen???not sure) but either way i do have Maria stairs sprites too. That's what i morphed them off of. They were also done by me a while back. Yeah i never did do a slide for hanz which woulda came in handy. Also i didn't do any 8 way whipping like in SCV4 either for him that i'd planned for.

@ pembaru. As for carrie i'll have to look around. Maybe it was in an earlier page of this thread, or possibly at Serio's site. But if so i'm not gonna post without permission. I will however pm you the link if i find the page.

That last run animation looks really solid I like it. I like the way it leans forward which looks more natural for a full speed run than the other one which suited a jog better than a run.

It sure is going to be hard to get anything done this week with all this nice weather lol. It's killing my efforts. I may have to go into night mode here if I want to accomplish anything and just avoid the sunny daytime distraction.

Yeah, Donofrio, sorry i failed to mention that. I got a tad excited when i heard"the bloodletting" yesterday. Yes indeed, the ninja is a morph of donofrio's maxim kinshine. Very nice job too with maxim thus far,like the sprite run.  I must say i like the fact that sprite artist are making new versions of some of the game boy advance games, all of which i haven't yet played. The juste belmont is very well done also. Solblaze stopped onto the forum with an amazing looking nathan graves too.  Be nice to see all these players in action at some point in time. Wether Serio's game, a hack, or custom fan games. Nice too see such talent. It makes me wanna sharpen my skills too. I've been on somewhat of a code learning tear lately though. Starting to learn this and that.

Sounds like your doing what I am. I been trying to get decent with C# and building sprite sheets etc but I feel like I am getting spread to thin these days. I have a lot going on. Most of the stuff I have going on all ties in together some how though.

I think it's back to characters for a while this damned stage just isn't going how I want it to. Gonna scrap this stage build and drop stage designing for a while to focus on characters. It's to taxing to try to do both at one time.

Hey corpsecrank. I don't much about construct or it's level editor. But i do know a ton about game maker. Just shaky on coding. I know a ton of stuff though, with obj, tiles, backgrounds, parralex moving backgrounds, plus imbed code in an object. I also have a basic understanding of the terminolgoy of coding in gml i just don't really know how to right out code and know what to expect. Also i understand the concept of scripts and what they do. The hardest part form me is the creat event,step, alarms, all that jazz. Which i am reading about. It does seem game maker has way more pro's than cons. I guess it may be loosely based off of C++ or at least that is what i hear. Which probably means it is just a shortened easier to learn language then c++. Is c# a trimmed down version of C or C++? I really have no idea but if you ever decide to use game maker. I can give a low down on alot,just not quite coding yet. I know it depend on your skills for sure. but i think it's probably way easier than c++ and i particularly just plan to use code skills for making games.  You know its funny too. I almost think it may be wise for 2 people to put their heads together on a project. Like say 2 coders as opposed to one. 2 can help each other learn faster, plus ideas willl come quicker more than likely. Also if it were me,i would prioritize. Before worrying about level building or even how they'll look. Get all the sprites done for the game first. Then have a game plan, like a storyline. Next start coding in the players, then enemies and bosses. When that's all done then start building levels, and eventually teh game will get done. I think most fan gamers rush into all of the phases and ware themselves out before they get far. It makes way more sense to me that way. Just trying to offer some suggestions

2 people working on any given aspect of a project is a good thing. The code for my main project isn't getting written solo either. I got a friend who knows C# who is working with me to help me learn. We worked on other projects in the past where he handled code and I handled integrating his code to the server and maintaining the server it worked well.

I don't care much for game maker or mmf or many of the other pieces of software that allow making games without code knowledge but construct seems to be the best of the batch from what I can tell and I gave each of them a try at one point or another.

But hey we are all wasting our time with these programs. It won't be long and we will have a real time editor that allows changes in code to be viewed in real time and specifically for making games. Go check out my other thread.

Hi guys, no showcase for me this post, but a request:

I'm fleshing out some parts of the CVDungeon (the site) that don't have pages.  However, I do not have graphics to go alongside said pages.  We'll start with something small for now:

I need one snapshot from each stage from Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
Note: DO NOT search the internet for them.  I would like them to be new screenshots, not something that can be ripped off of Mr.P's or CVWikia or whatever.  New stuff.
It also needs to be in the proper resolution and in PNG format (no JPEGs or squished graphics).

This means that those of you with ROM Hack and/or Emulator tools are the ones I'm asking.

If this gets done, I'll ask for more stuff.  Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Jorge

@Jorge

There are some issues with ooe on the emulators at the moment at least that is what happened to me. The latest version of desmume wouldn't play it properly anyways. I had an older version that I was playing the game on before that worked. If anyone is to do this they will need desmume version 0.9.6 and even then I cannot guarantee it will play all the way through. I wasn't able to get the flight glyph because it was impossible to grab it without falling on the emulator. Kind of like the dos magic seal they were really hard to use on the emulator using a mouse to draw them and that caused some frustration playing that game on an emulator. Grabbing glyphs in ooe seems to also have issues making a couple of the glyphs pretty much impossible to grab.

Anyways if anyone does attempt it those are some important things to keep in mind.

No$GBA does screenshots if you press PrntScrn.
I can do these myself, but I did not want to have to play the entire game all over in order to do so.
I suppose the alternative is to provide me with a completed game's .SAV file.
I might need these for PoR as well.  There have been some contributions to the site in terms of stage descriptions, etc. but the pages look barren without images.
And I don't wanna be a tool and rip 'em off of other people's sites.

POR I can do easily right now actually. I am almost 100% sure I have a completed game sitting here from the last run through it I did on desmume I think I also have a no$gba save that is complete can't remember.

ooe did not play through on no$gba last time I checked or it was really really bad if it did. Your best option for ooe is almost certainly going to be on desmume 0.9.6 which I can give you a copy of in either x86 or x64 if you need it. But like I said I haven't been able to play it through yet.

I was just pricing the ds collection I think I can get all 3 games new for like 60 bucks which I will probably be buying soon. When I get those in I can always get the screens you need with my nikon.

My take on Leon belmont..
Pretty happy with how it turned out..  :)
Wow, that's boss!
finally got my computer workin a month ago. lost ALL my files. gonna restart revamped alucard after i finish mathias.
Ever looked at disk digger? It found bout all my stuff in a hdd crash I had not too long ago. I think the full version was like 8 bucks or so...
POR I can do easily right now actually. I am almost 100% sure I have a completed game sitting here from the last run through it I did on desmume I think I also have a no$gba save that is complete can't remember.

ooe did not play through on no$gba last time I checked or it was really really bad if it did. Your best option for ooe is almost certainly going to be on desmume 0.9.6 which I can give you a copy of in either x86 or x64 if you need it. But like I said I haven't been able to play it through yet.

I was just pricing the ds collection I think I can get all 3 games new for like 60 bucks which I will probably be buying soon. When I get those in I can always get the screens you need with my nikon. If I shoot it properly it should be every bit as good as a screenshot once it gets cropped and sized. So if we have to I might be able to help out that way.

Was it POR? You asked me about something a while back and some of my emulators won't run on my machine at the moment since I am using win8 cp but I do have good news! I am actually glad you reminded me by bringing this up. I did manage to get my haunted castle rom to work! I captured a bunch of the frames from the statue crumbling. I think there is enough if not all of the frames to remake it. So now that I am thinking of it I am going to go rip them up and put them in a sheet for you. :)

NOTE: I checked this is the complete animation. The first frame on the left is the normal state of the object the next frame forward are the break animation. It disappears after the last frame and the contents are shown be it a heart or whatever.

Uhhhh no, that implies that they'd end up as a compressed picture (usually a Jpeg).  Thanks, though.
I'm specifically looking for either:
-OoE screencaps (from an emulator so that they have proper resolution and clarity) of every stage (just one per stage will do, usually a nice part of the stage).
OR
-a completed OoE save file (.sav, so that I can do it myself).

No$gba runs well enough on my system that the game is playable.

Just the main game (I've only cleared Normal mode) or does it have to be a true 100% (Both Shanoa and Albus Hard mode Lv. 255 at 100% exploration rate, which would be quite a feat to accomplish)?

No I don't think you understand my camera is not a point and click it's a dslr and I shoot in raw not some crap compressed type lol. I would clean it up in camera raw then save it out as a png it would be pretty nice quality actually.

@VladCT:
It doesn't have to be a perfect/100% game, just a game in which I can have Shanoa re-visit all the areas in order to take one screenshot.  I don't need Albus mode.

@Corpsecrank:
I appreciate the offer, but no matter how wonderful the RAW format of the images is, and no matter how much image manipulation you do, it will never be the same as one emulator 'perfect' screencap.  For example, you might catch a speck of dust on the screen, or a smudged screen might show up, etc.  With an emulator screencap, it'd be absolutely accurate, and small in size, to boot (only 256x192 I believe).

Thanks anywayz but, someone posted something similar a few ago....lol Anyways about the PoR deal I just need the maps because they aren't widely available on the net. Also on a side note I could also use the stage maps for Contra Hard Corps on the genesis, if someone is experienced with ripping from the Genesis emulators...

Yeah it was the contra ones I think you asked about but my emulator won't run under win 8 my DS emulators do work but I can't view tiles to rip the stages I don't think the tile viewers for the DS work quite right and that may actually be the reason no one has ripped and posted the stages. I know smithy was working his balls off on some DS castlevania rips and if he wasn't able to get them then I doubt anyone could. I may have to hit him up about the stages and see if he made an attempt on them and what happened. He would surely have more info on it anyhow.

Contra I could rip if my emulator was working. I don't have my laptop at the moment either I loaned it out or I could have tried running it there and pulling stages. I know the tile viewer in that emulator was good.

But bottom line you need a tile viewer/editor to pull stages. Characters and objects seem to be a lot easier to grab. I actually pulled the statue by hammering on the screenshot button while approaching the statue. They aren't an actual breakable they crumble as you get near them but could also work as a breakable. The animation is pretty slow in the game though so I was able to capture each frame in a single attempt.

Yeah that's cool man. I do sprite art yep.  I must really say that you have some good ideas with your artwork aswell with the skeleton diver.What an awesome start to a 2d version of him and his beast fish. I thought i'd seen that on a board a while ago, but yeah totally diggin' that. Plus i seen your screenshoots of your game using leo pedrozza's old engine. Dude for real that shit is hot, i would definetly keep at that man! I like the fact that you code all that cool stuff man. You have what appears to be reflecting water, and something about that lighting effects looked interesting aswell. Plus the familiars for richter. Yeah dude definetely some cool stuff going on their. I gotta say i like the name of the game too. It's got that originality i think konami would come up with. Also the enter your name screen looks pretty good.....are you hinting at a secret player with the name....YEAH? I know that is a common theme in some castlvania games. Sometimes you put @trevor for that game Curse of Darkness as an example. I'm sure i'm reading into that a bit much but i do like it when people get clever like that.

For some reason your sprites look "flat" to me not sure why though. They are pretty good just kind of off in that aspect. They look more like older sprites I guess. How many colors per sprite are you using? You might want to try increasing the number of colors and then try shading the edges more to make the sprite have more depth to it.

It depends on what your going for though really. If you are stuck with limited palate then these are probably perfect or if you want an older style etc.

Wow man now that is looking good. I think you may be on to something. That looks a lot better to me. The darker color in the shading seems to have helped a lot also.

The size looks like it changes I liked the black outline on the wagon a lot too. But the shading seems better on this last version. The thicker wheels may or may not be a good thing try adding an inside and outside darkened line on them so they don't appear as fat and have some good hard edges which would match a wheel better. Also remember those old wheels had that iron band around the outside of them you could add that as a deep silver/iron color for realism.

Hello everyone! Yes, I am really in need of an original sprites for each character of Soma, Julius, Alucard and Yoko from Castlevania Harmony of Despair, Mina, Hammer and Arikado from Castlevania AOS/DOS, creating an old age between 40-50 version of Jonathan Morris, old age between 40-50 version of Charlotte Aulin and Death from Castlevania POR, Olrox with a similar outfit like how Jbetbrice had done at the first place as you saw it in CV dungeon which Olrox is actually wearing his own purple color with yellow color lines king cape as his exterior outfit "http://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/index.php/topic,4781.30.html". Whereas for his interior outfit, has the same exact as you saw him wearing in Castlevania SOTN and Saint Germain from Castlevania COD with sprite sheet version and some NEW character sprites from my fangame storyline, Castlevania: Souls of Sorrow. Most of the Castlevania fans over the IGN which I posted about what "Castlevania: Souls of Sorrow" was all about and what's the reason I made that fangame storyline for, were kept on demanding about creating some new sprite sheets in order to show them and prove to them that my fangame storyline of Castlevania: Souls of Sorrow is actually EXIST. Here are some of the NEW characters sprite sheets request from one of the biggest fans of Castlevania such as myself.

The 7 Divisions of the Immortal Vampires who works under King Olrox.

Shadow- A rage 24 years old young boy with short spiky blue hair, blue fringe, some black tattoos on his face, black singlet, black color shoes, black color jeans, wearing 3-4 necklaces and dark black color flames on his both hands.

Maximo- He is thin with some muscular on his physical body appearance, shirtless, 27 years old, a long red punk hair, cool, arrogant and a selfish gangster punk looking guy with much tattoos on his whole body, brown color jeans, white color shoes and a black bandana on his forehead area.

Zamelia- A beautiful lady with a long pink hair, blue eyes, a purple color on her lips and a mole on her left cheek of the beauty spot. Apparently, she has the same age with Yoko Belnades. She wears a black greek costume of a female warrior, due to her family generation from the past and similar to Sophitia and Cassandra's costume from Soul Calibur. She who wields a great rapier and a strong shield to defend herself who stands in her way. (Maybe you can use this song to give you more strength and inspires you more to create a sprite sheet more about her!) Devil May Cry 4: The Viper (ECHIDNA combat) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtlhadd8gjI#)

Chibi- A cute little vampire girl with a mix color of black and white maiden costume that has the same age as Mina Hakuba, apparently. Pink color eyes, maiden shoes with black shoe and a white long socks on her legs, a black color fashionable headband with a big black rose on her headband as well. (similar to this picture "http://www.polyvore.com/luxury-shops.com_chanel_headband/thing?id=7808520") She who wields a deadly black umbrella and ability to summon her own favorite 5 huge “deadly pets” which are bear, horse, rabbit, bird and dragon too.

Abuwa- A clumsy fat vampire man at the age of 40-50 years old who really loves to eat chicken and he can’t live without chickens in his life. He has a brown mohawk hairstyle color, brown mustache, brown beard and wearing a waiter costume as his attire with black slacks and black shoes (similar to this picture "http://www.tipsuniforms.com/tips/catalog/popup_image.php?pID=229"). He who wields a deadly poisonous vomit until to extend of creating a sea of deadly vomit and ability to crush anything he wish to destroy it. Just becareful, do NOT make him mad and steal his chickens while he enjoying eating chickens with good appetites.

Leo Narcadia- A silent person mysterious immortal vampire who wears a pure white hoodie with a plain white mask, black gloves on his hands and a black boots on his legs. His age is unknown and he was once living in a pure miserable and pure suffering kind of life when he was still alive in 1999 where he was suppose to be dead. His attitude, his voice, his power and much more, are very similar to one of the villains from Metal Gear Solid, Psycho Mantis. He uses the opera songs and his deadly huge amount of collectable puppets by using strings in order to control the puppets as his deadly precious weapon to kill people who stand in his way. Plus, he has the ability to control people’s body, mimic someone’s voice, use strings to beak on the back of the victims to suck blood in order to refill his health and read people’s mind as well. He is kind of hard to fight with. (Maybe you can use this song to give you more strength and inspires you more to create a sprite sheet more about him too!) "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nlgh6Rh0mPk" and "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_B12n6YUEU"

Virex- A cool tall gentleman captain among of all the 7 Divisions of Immortal Vampires who has a long spiky red hair, red beard, a black costume that has similar to one of the awesome cool characters, Johnny from Guilty Gear "http://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters2/johnny-toosweet.jpg". He who wields such deadly Yamato sword and his sword is as fast as "crissaegrim" and "valmanway". Apparently, he has been told that he was influenced by the Japanese culture. He is very hard to fight with and kind of annoying too. During in a midst of any battlefield he had ever been to, he always keep yawning and feel very sleepy simultaneously. Apparently, he is a type of a person who doesn’t even care about anything of what happens around him. His own favorite quotes “Just keep it cool. Alright.”

I would be more happier if you could really help me out and work together with me to create this fangame for supporting and bringing back our old beloved Castlevania 2D game back to its throne with HD graphics! Basically, now I'm still creating the cover artwork box for the game and it's still under progression currently too. Plus, I am really passionate and heartening over this fangame storyline of mine and to create it until it's successful for an example, Serio's game Castlevania, www.vampirevariations.com (http://www.vampirevariations.com) and other Castlevania fan-made game as you can see it on youtube. These are lists of the successful work that they've done.

Castlevania: Souls of Sorrow's plot of the storyline:
"Ever since the incident of the Demon Castle War in 1999, Lord Dracula had finally defeated for good by the hands of the Belmont clan. However, in the year of 2038, a young legendary warrior, Soma Cruz stands once again alongside with his dear friends to face the final battle against the two Castlevania's own favorite Immortal villains, Death and Olrox are the only one left and they who attempt to rule the Demon Castle after Lord Dracula's demise. 2 years after the incident of the Dark Lord Candidates which they've miserably failed, Olrox and Death create a Demon Castle under the darkness of eclipse which Olrox believe that the Demon Castle is his own Utopia and where he is belong. However, though Olrox and Death collaboration together to rule over the world, but each of them have different visions to fight for something which are still unknown for now. Olrox has become the new King of the "Immortal Vampires" and Lord of the Demon Castle who living in a pure hatred and revengeful world upon the humanity and living in an agony upon his elder brother's death, Brauner. The Legendary son of Lord Dracula, Alucard, may have defeated him once but the man, who can bring Olrox back alive from the dead, Death, resurrected him by using Olrox's SOUL. Death tells Olrox everything about what had happened to his elder brother and how he died. Olrox's new comrades, "The Divisions of the 7 Immortal Vampires" and his beloved armies, attempt to rule over the world and wipe out all the humanity for eternity. Prepare for the FINAL chapter of sorrow! Peace and victorious must be prevail forever!"

Hello there Donoffrio, my name is Aznur, just call me Runza if you want to. Nice to meet you ^^ As I can see from your last post in this forum which was about the Isaac sprite sheet version and apparently, you have an awesome talent which you can actually create a 2D sprite character from 3D character. I was really surprise to see that you can actually create Isaac in 2D sprite version. Nevertheless Donoffrio, are you interested in helping someone like myself, who is really in need of making a new sprite sheets version of Castlevania characters? Because as you can see about my last post in this forum at the page 45, which was about the plot of fangame storyline of Castlevania: Souls of Sorrow, please do spare some time to read all the words that I've stated. I would be more happier and really appreciate it if you could help me to create sprites version characters that I've mention at the page 45. Cheers! :D

The "Enjoy!" would suggest he is making it free for use with credits given. Seeing as how he admits it's a SOTN edit, it's not like there's a whole lot he can do. Just give him credit and give Konami credit and all will be good. If he even notices you and throws a hissy, you could just threaten to tell Konami that he's claiming their work as his own. Custom sprites are a tricky, grey area. But looking at that sprite sheet, he doesnt' strike me as that kind of person. After hanging around the Spriters Resource for a while, you learn to read people's personalities just from their sprite sheets. All they want is credit for going through the effort of making minor edits for your sake.


Still looking for Succubus put together, but for now here's the succubus from Demon Hunter Legend:

Post by: vyck_st.judas on June 27, 2012, 12:36:37 PM
Man, I really hope i this is the right place.
I have all of Alucard's animations.
http://spriters-resource.com/psx_ps2/cvsotn/sheet/3228 (http://spriters-resource.com/psx_ps2/cvsotn/sheet/3228)

I have this weapons sheet from the spriter's resource CV:SoTN page.
http://spriters-resource.com/psx_ps2/cvsotn/sheet/15230 (http://spriters-resource.com/psx_ps2/cvsotn/sheet/15230)

I cannot for the life of me figure out how Alucard uses the Nunchuku/tonfa. The weapon animations are bunched together in such a way that i simply cannot tell where they begin or end. I also have no idea which of Alucard's attack frames are used to swing them. If anybody out there has an animated gif or a small sprite sheet of this one animation I'd be overjoyed if you could share it. I'd even take a messy jpeg at this point. I'm using this animation as a weapon base for a new character entirely. The sooner someone is awesome enough to share, the sooner I can finish. Thanks for the time guys! :)

And as a show of good faith,  A "Richter Belmont" sheet is attached. I know, There are probably a million Richter edit's here, but trust me it's worth the trouble of a peek. It's Serio's Rip and Palette originally. I added new animations (3-hit combo, Running attack, directional up/down attack, Back attack like Eric Lecarde, other stuff...) and a LOT of very subtle, very tedious repairs to the original Konami sprites. I wanted to add some new things, but still have him look and feel like Richter.

Help me with the sheet i need, and I'll send you a playable demo.
 
EDIT: The second attachment pertains to my second post in this thread.
This is Kreiger. He's an Albus/Richter fusion with an edged weapon based moveset. I think I made this shortly after OOE came out. He may look very simple, But he's got so many tiny animation tweaks and fixes I shudder to think about it still. This includes Numerous instances of Richter's improper footing, Adjusting the walk animation to look more like a 32 bit Vania. Subtle differences in jumping animation, giving him rolled up sleeves, and fixing every instance of that Mother-F'N piss poor Rubber knife sheathe that Richter seemed to be equipped with, but never once used.

Finally, If you want to use these for your own project don't worry about tracking me down to ask. Anything I put up now and in the future is public domain the moment it posts. Just don't be a... I really don't have an un-convoluted word for people like this that isn't complete profanity... Ok then, Dont be a Sanguisūga. I'm like the library in this regard. Use what you want, but don't say you wrote the book, Me oye?

In my zeal I, like a dumbass forgot to read the rules, and posted here before making my initial 3 posts. I went back and did that just now. But figure maybe I should share some stuff to contribute? Sharing is caring right?

I ripped Ganryu for the neo geo game because he kinda fits the style, Can be used as a base to create new moves for other characters, and I just hadn't seen him anywhere before.

Simon is just a basic edit with a couple of new things thrown in.

The hero guy is basically all the animations he uses in the SNES game Nosferatu. I was in the process of making his colors more vibrant. Also, Every rip i found was terribly incomplete. this is Belial's old rip, i added ALL the missing animations from screen captures. (including his second running animation. The first is more of a jog. The other one has much more urgency.)

The last is a set of playable characters for another project in the Classic NES art style. It uses the correct color palette, But I'm not sticking to the 3 color rule for this endeavor. The blue and red martial artists might have a familiar movesets too. if you look closely and are older than 25 you may recognize them.

I have more but i'm only allowed 4 attachments. Maybe I should edit the first post?

............. if you are the same guy who posted on my blog, I am a bit confused as to WHY exactly you made this post, when I actually told you EXACTLY how to get the animation easily.  :-\

The animations used are the STABBING one, followed by the SWORD swinging one. Simple.

Since you appear to have some spriting skills if that is not enough to fix your issue (especially with the advice I already gave you) maybe we can arrange a trade of some kind where I make you the animation, and you make me something. U2U me if you want to do this.

Post by: vyck_st.judas on June 28, 2012, 01:24:16 AM
LOL! Yeah I am the same guy! I gave you the Kreiger set a ways back. I've been pretty sick for a long while now, hospitals, all that jazz, but I finally beat it!!!  ;D Now I can get back to work. (I wish there was a F#@K. YEAH!!! smiley.)
Anyway, I'd been checking the post. I don't know why, but I kept looking above the post instead of under, so I must have kept missing it. I face palmed pretty hard when I saw your post here. Checked over there and felt Like a tool. Only made it worse that I forgot I was wearing my heavy ring... ug. I just assumed you might have been too busy. That project of yours is quite an undertaking.
About the advice... it helps a lot, but my problem is more the weapon animation itself. The sheet I got from the spriter's resource is good quality and it has all of the animations, They're just bunched together (the standards with the diagonals) so I cant make heads or tails of how its supposed to animate.

If you need something I'd be happy to help. Honestly, I'd have done it without the trade. I've been OD HYPE to see this since I first heard of it. ;D I don't know what U2U is though. I know it may sound stupid, but I'm being for real. I've been out of commission for a much longer while than I would have liked. Is this a term for something, or some newfangled skype thing? Once again, I'm really sorry for not knowing this. Kind of embarrassed to ask actually...  :-[

Edit: I hope this comes out right. I didn't want your personal resources, or any advanced privilege. I'll still be crazy hype to play when it comes out. For a while I didn't think I'd get too. I've had people steal my shit before. It's even worse when you gotta eat it because you cant prove them wrong. I wouldn't want to put someone else in that position. Least of all a fellow Boricua.
I'm just trying to put together an Sotn style martial artist for my own project. I like the idea of beating Dracula in the neck with a Tonfa. It's just more satisfying to me when the dude you're playing as, doesn't look like a chick. Freaking Japs are weird.

I'm just trying to put together an Sotn style martial artist for my own project. I like the idea of beating Dracula in the neck with a Tonfa. It's just more satisfying to me when the dude you're playing as, doesn't look like a chick. Freaking Japs are weird.   
Nice to hear from you again Vyck!

LOL! Yeah I am the same guy! I gave you the Kreiger set a ways back. I've been pretty sick for a long while now, hospitals, all that jazz, but I finally beat it!!!  ;D Now I can get back to work. (I wish there was a F#@K. YEAH!!! smiley.)

Now I remember.... you showed it to me some time ago. Glad to hear you are doing better now.  8)

About the advice... it helps a lot, but my problem is more the weapon animation itself. The sheet I got from the spriter's resource is good quality and it has all of the animations, They're just bunched together (the standards with the diagonals) so I cant make heads or tails of how its supposed to animate.

Wait... I thought you needed alucard's animations not the weapons? The sheet on spriters-resource for weapons honestly sucks! The reason is you really have to go thru hell to arrange it. I have resources and tools that will let me easily get it though.

Glad to hear that you are looking forward to the engine. And U2U is the message program on here. Scroll up to the top of the screen and look above the posts and you will see "my messages"; that is a U2U. Click it and you can send me one. That what I was referring to.

Damn Vyck! i'm totally digging your Kreiger and Simon. Very nice! Also it appear you've made some extra animations for Richters. tottally give you props on the whip twirl thingy. That would kick ass for an item crash move in sotn imo. Of course it should suck up alot of hearts i'd think.

The whip crash thing there is a place holder. I found it strange that he can crash all these subweapons but not his whip. Homeboy has been training with that thing for how long? He's practically a victorian era super hero. He can make it rain holy water, Turn the pages of the bible into whirling blades of death, and summon jesus christ, but he can't crash the whip?!? The real attack will look more like an SNK take omega red's tentacle whip thing.

Edit: Correction, He CAN crash the whip. He enchants it with fire, But I'm using that as a buff spell reaction from another player.
I have to give separate Fire, ice, lightning, and nature FX to each weapon.

Hey guys i got a brief question. Does anyone have a full screenshot of this chapel room without the stairs,ceiling, and pues:(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1176.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fx337%2FLaslunder%2FChapelroomnormalprobablyflatfor3dzplot.png&hash=c47744d607f9c9f791b9740dc5b4922f)

Reason being is i would like to at some point use this with that 3d zplotting background for a particular room. I still have to learn how that kind of code works. And if anyone who knows would care to explain i'd be greatful. Sadly though the image here will not do. I need the overlapping sprites removed. I know backgrounds while taking screenshots can be removed. However the room is so large that i am not sure where in the room the actual image lies. it isn't a locked in 320x240 view. Like where the hell the middle or median of the room would be. there is a way to remove all that hoopla(sprites etc). But i really dont' wanna have to cut and paste. That will be a headache i don't wanna deal with seeing its a flattened 3d image. IF anyone can be of assistance it would be greatly appreaciated. I am looking to do the same with other backdrops like buildings, and perhaps the clocktower. Well ok thanks guys!

Hello ladies & gentlemen.

A while back in feburary, I made a topic on looking for a sprite artist who could create a custom set sprites of Sonia Belmont to replace either Jonathan or Richter in Portrait of Ruin. Unfortunately, I couldn't follow up on it due to personal issues affecting my everyday life. Now finally, I'm freed up to continue this pursuit. Would anyone be kind in taking up this request of mine please? If it helps in motivation, I offer to pay $100 cash for the time & effort into this. If anyone is interested, please do send me an email at shadow_RavenX@yahoo.com. It's much appreciated. Thank you.

True. You do have a point. Thing is, it is a service I am asking of someone to do for me, whoever it is that is willing to do me the favor. In return for their time & effort that goes to making something for me from basically nothing, I'm willing to pay for the work & credit them for the work.That's why I offer $100 for anyone who is willing to do the work. Again, you do have a point, that I'm not arguing.

There isn't really a location, dude.
This particular room is comprised of several 3D objects on a dark gray (24,24,24) background.
It is not a set of tiles or anything like that.
You need to make a 3D box.

If you were gonna replicate this room with 2D objects, the perspective as you climb the room will look off, as the windows will not look right.

If you really have to attempt it, it would be like this:
-Far Background - a solid color (that 'dark gray' behind the altar cross)
-The altar in the back
-A 'picture frame' composed of the left window, the right window, the floor reflections, and the ceiling archway, with a transparency in the center of the frame so that you can see the altar.
-Repeat 4 more times.
-The line in the bottom of the center

You would have to include alphatransparency grayscale lights on the right side of every pictureframe background to simulate the window's lighting, and set the alpha type to something like additive light, so that each light in front of it brightens up like in the picture.

The windows will NOT look right when you superjump or climb those stairs in the stage, though, because the perspective will be off.

An alternative would be to find a script that does something like the floor effect in Street Fighter II games, and apply such an effect vertically to the left and right of the stage... five times... each time with a different window.  It's work but not impossible.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Las on July 06, 2012, 10:39:30 AM
Hmmm....yeah seems somewhat confusing. So each area is a part. Should it act as a cube. Like the back wall where the alter is is 1wall. The windows on teh left and right 2 more walls. The pillars on the ceiling another. And the floor yet another? I honesty tried using a tutorial engine called the w3d by snider. Though i haven't totally figured it out. I was able to get some of those houses from the nightmare in sotn in as fake 3d models. They rotate from side to side as you move and up and down as well.

I really haven't figured out all of the code yet. But i did figrue out what some of it does to change the x,y size and it's depth. You can make it appear right at your face or way the hell away from you. Yeah here's an example of some things i put it. I'll assume this room will act somewhat like the houses or the cube. As for the alpha thing well i'll have to figure that part out. I know ssf will allow you to pull out layers of backgrounds. So these stairs can be removed. Problem is the background colors are all black for the most part and i really woulnt' where the top and bottome begin and end near the windows.

Also because it's coded in as a 3d model i'm assuming the image may never be flat. I know i used to make jedi academy models and you needed to have a flattened image so as to wrap it around the wire frame model. Not that this exactly relates, but i just assumed it would be similar for real 3d models. So if you fake it how exaclty do you do that? Anyways here is that vid i recorded.
3d objects,rain fx,lens flare 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_rl2GLG5JQ#)
room1 has just a 3d cube i pulled from the other engine. room2 has rain, thunder, and lightnign effects( not what were' talking about) and room3, has those sotn houses(very incorrect)and i added lens flares.Well to be honest i know very little about this stuff and it's a learning process so i'll try whatever advice i can.

Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on July 06, 2012, 04:30:26 PM
My host is down so I cannot host any pictures, argh... otherwise I'd whip up something.

The reason the 3D box houses look off is probably because the 3D model is just a box.
It cannot be a box and have that shape in the textures.

I saw something similar with the pinkish seam issues: Those 'probably' mean that the UVMapping of the texture to the model are slightly off.
You usually wanna oversize.  It's better if the graphic falls into the ether than for the graphic to be too small, because then the pink color will show.

Post by: Esco on July 06, 2012, 06:01:44 PM
LAS: You really should consider making posts like this on the GM FORUMS. The fact is while we have some talented people here, most of them don't know GM well. Jorge for example gave you an excellent and VERY detailed post above, but now you basically have to take that and put it on the GM forums asking "how do I do this in GM?"

To give you some assistance you will need to use flat primitives for the windows, and purple light beam, as well as the windows reflections; The stairs and floor are of course tiles. The ceiling arches and background cross are just normal 2d sprite objects. The light can be done in several ways, including a 3d primitive with alpha.... but I'm sure the GM people can come up with better ways for the light than that.

Also if you do it right, it will actually look just like in SOTN, but more detailed. Even though you will be using 3d stuff in a 2d game.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on July 06, 2012, 08:33:43 PM
**+1's Esco's post**
Indeed, you should be looking into the GM forums and asking the right questions.
Or asking questions in a matter pertinent to how you want to make an effect, with detailed explanations so that they know what you're trying to convey, as there are a myriad of ways of making that effect, or a similar effect.

Everything Esco just said make sense.  He calls 'em "Flat Primitives", some other people say "Quadrangles", while others say "Textures on a flat polygon".
All of these things mean the same thing:  That flat window is essentially being superimposed on a polygon (a rectangle) and placed in 3D space.  It's one of the simpler 3D objects and if you learn how to manipulate those, you will be able to do it with other objects that are the same way (Puppet Swords, Azaghal's Weapon, Sword Familiar).
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Las on July 06, 2012, 09:39:22 PM
Yeah funny that you mention Gm forums Esco.  those damn yoyo forums i can never enter. I signed up twice and both times wasn't able to so much as even log in,or post a comment. I also email the adminstrater. They never got back to me. I suppose if i can't ask any questions on their maybe i wont' need to. I'm more than certain someone on there is trying to do similar things aswell.  Theirs probably tons of post on that. So yeah i'll just check their.  As for flat primitives. I can only imagine the image needs to be flat. Then coded in maybe. That's how most of those 3 d sprites are shown. When someone rips them they rip the parts but their flat.

 I have an idea of how the concepts work, and yeah good call on overlapping Jorge. The way the code is that i use is for a cube which will work only for somethings like here. Each sprite animation is another wall. JUst really confused on those houses with the roofs. That is a bit more of a task. I am gonna fool around and see if i can't take jorge's advice on that to make that room work just like in sotn. And yeah yoyo forums all that way! Say anyone know of any other very informative forums like yoyo. I found this one tutorial site, very detailed very nice. It's where i learned how to make paths. Got death partially working from that.

If you can't sign up, try a different email. And then another one if you need to, until you succeed. You WILL need to ask for help there for a game this big. I have had to do it MANY times, and I personally didn't have an issue luckily.

Also look up the word PRIMITIVES in the help file. There is a reason I specifically used that term. A flat one is actually very easy to do. The houses you will want to ask for help with under the 3d forums.  You might also want to DL model maker 3d, model creator, uvmapper and GM model fix. The facet fix in gm model fix is especially useful, but the rest of those tools me and my 3d artist needed on many occasions.

Yes, they belong to Joao from south america. He was working on a Castlevania game in game maker. He has been MIA for quite some time now sadly. He was quite talented.

Yes...
Shyguy Kingdom doesnt even have DS sprites from any castlevania and Spriters-Resource doesnt have whips and sub-weapons from POR, and doesnt have all animations from sub-weapons.

Someone please can hel me with these? POR whips and sub-weapons and DOS Julius' sub-weapons.
I cant rip these myself with TileMolester, it says that it needs more memory when I try to open a DS rom and I have searched for this sprites on internet too. Please, help! lol
I can even tell what is the whips adress in TileMolester if someone want to help, because I've seen it in a old post that Esco asked help and Pemburu Vampire helped him telling how to rip and the sprites and palletes adress.

More or less what Pemburu said: "Open the ROM with TM and set the codec to 4bpp linear, reverse-order and set the mode to 2 dimension and go to address 21DA000, for the gfx of Jonathan's weapons and 158A000 for Soma's weapons.
For the palette address of John's weapon it starts at 2584828, for Soma's
weapons palette address it starts at 1994316.
Just add 36 to it and you'll get the palette for the next weapon (example; 2584828+36= 2584864)."

Since Im not a genius like him, I dont know the adresses for sub-weapons and its palletes, but if you can rip atleast all whips... thanksthanksthanks lol
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Dalles on August 31, 2012, 02:09:42 PM
I have several requests for spritework:

Level of quality: comparable to SOTN.

http://www.unseen64.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/castle-beta-06.jpg (http://www.unseen64.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/castle-beta-06.jpg)

I'd like her to:
- use a dagger as a main weapon in this default color set and a whip in a black-colored version.
- also a succubus-style poisonous kiss would be a nice touch.
(when HP is down to 50%:)
- pink, dagger-wielding version would drop/lose her dagger and start moving like the Persephone enemies from AoS.
- black, whip-wielding version would start jumping around Harley-Quinn-style, also with her whip lost.

Request 2:

Victor Delacroix. There's gonna be a whooole lot of him due to him being a central character of the project Lelygax and I are working on.

Here's how he looks:

http://static.dailystrength.org/groupfiles/2/8/1/2/10002182/g_774790757.jpg (http://static.dailystrength.org/groupfiles/2/8/1/2/10002182/g_774790757.jpg)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v426/VeryGnawty/Victor2.jpg (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v426/VeryGnawty/Victor2.jpg)

Quality level: SOTN-comparable as well, please.

OK, so basically form 1 is the most seen: he'll be appearing in convos when the players will play as Farah, he'll be confronted several times as well and have his own campaign too.

Movement: basics (running, walking and jumping, with and without the sword), teleporting in and out, summoning a glyph, capturing one and enshrouding himself in darkness to transform into another form, kneeling (for the last few cutscenes).
Fighting: sword (several moves), fist (several moves), glyph summon.
Other: fist grip in anger, facepalm, shake head, nod head.

form 2:

colors would be the exact opposite of the current ones, basically like a negative of a photo.
movement: walking, running, jumping around, teleporting.
Fighting: sword, fist, glyph summon as in the previous one.

form 3:

eyes red, sword: red with black handle, cape/suit: black, hair: black, skin: white.
movement: as above.
fighting: as above.

form 4:

similar to this: http://devils-lair.org/enemies/dmc4/alto_angelo1.jpg (http://devils-lair.org/enemies/dmc4/alto_angelo1.jpg)
but entirely black and with helmet not covering face, and with hair 'comin' out' from under it. Two types should be made, one with white hair and the other with black hair (the 'Negative Delacroix' form will not use AT, so he will not transform into this).
animations: running, flying would be more like series of jumps
fighting: sword and wing-formed shield (any of the two wings could be temporarily turned into a shield).

Both Lelygax and myself would appreciate any help on this.

And then one of the old men... he's not done.

I wanted to remake CV2 even though everyone else has already at some point, but for me i wanted it to resemble an upgraded version of the original.. much like Nintendo did with super mario allstars back in the day.

Looks very impressive so far (though simon's sprite needs some work still, but the rest look great). Believe it or not though, coding simon's quest's engine is very simple. It is pretty basic, and doesn't require much work.

Here is a sprite I could use some help with; it is the 3rd and final palette for the axe armor:

I was trying to create one that had colors similar to the rondo version, but having the feet as red too just didn't look right, so I made them orange instead. I also wanted to give him a golden axe with a slightly golden colored shield. However, something just doesn't feel right about him (probably because I have ZERO artistic talent, lol)

This is something I whipped up last night; it's meant to be a more SotN-esque sprite of Rondo of Blood Richter Belmont's design, more accurate to his design and the graphic style of SotN. Yes, this was inspired by Thaddeus' project a few years back (too arsed right now to find the topic for y'all), but his were edits of Fake Trevor's sprites, whereas this is a fix of Richter's original graphics (I did use references from Trevor for Richter's head and loin-cloth, however).

To a certain somebody (they'll know who they are): don't worry, this isn't gonna take up my attention in the least; this is just something I did out of boredom. I don't think I'll even do much more for this, so anybody's free to take this and expand on it. (all I ask is credit if you do :P)

The sprites are still slowly being worked on... i got other things i'm doing all at once.. so i'm taking my time on all this.

But yeah, i know CV games have been remade over and over by fans .. but mine will be more like a ... NES game ported and upgraded to a SNES game.. much like the Super Mario All stars games.

So it turns out that the sprites' differences in shape and shading made them basically incompatible, not to mention one having more outline. As such, I decided to resize mobile Simon, but the head didn't look right so I used X68K Simon's again.

Nice work. :) But I found out that your Richter may an edited version of your Isaac because they look similar especially the head and hair style (I found out that your CJ Simon are too) ;D Other than that is effect of shader that make his shoulder look sharp. :-X But shader and color look awesome.  :) Keep going.

No doubt, Jorge. Maybe for 2013 we could have a section of the forum just programmers, coding issues,etc. Even though we don't have so many programmers here now, I think by just having a section (not a thread) just for programming and programmers it would invite more programmers that are checking out Castlevania and would want to do something like that to post and hang out there.  You wouldn't believe how many video game programmers that I know at at school that actively look for artists and they really hate when they have to draw and do that kind of thing.  I also think that there should be a section just for individuals that are looking for talent or help with projects, that type of thing. It's just that I really think the forum should get a makeover for next year.  I think you should kinda make The Castlevania Forum similar to Polycount.com. Could you take my ideas into consideration for a makeover. I found a pretty good home here and I have heard a few rumblings of this site "falling off" a bit. I think it's time for a makeover. Cheers!

Post by: Donvermicelli on January 19, 2013, 08:20:51 AM
So I am trying my hand at spriting...
I'm not that experienced yet but my current project is making a sprite for Coller, he's a character that I would have loved to see featured in a castlevania game hence me choosing him.
I think I've made a pretty good first attempt.
Here's two versions, not sure which one I like better. Can any of you experienced spriters give some feedback on areas that I can improve?
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on January 19, 2013, 09:14:38 AM
Did a small update the the sprite, made a standing animation for both with and without chainsaw:

I believe the moving of the chainsaw looks rather clunky but am not sure how to make it appear more smooth.
Tips on that are also greatly appreciated.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: PyramidHead on January 19, 2013, 09:22:52 AM
I think it looks weird because the chainsaw is moving, but his hand - no. And may be you need 3 frames for that moving, not only 2. Anyway, looks nice!
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on January 19, 2013, 09:56:29 AM
Thought maybe having it move slower would help. My alternative was animating the blade but there doesn't seem to be enough space for such detail.

animation V2:
Added Jump animation (it's more like a hop, Coller doesn't seem the type to jump very high imo)
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: PyramidHead on January 19, 2013, 09:15:22 PM
That one looks much better.
What are you going to do with this Coller (if it's not a secret, of course)?
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on January 20, 2013, 01:10:41 AM
I just felt like making it to try my hand at spriting, maybe I'll try and write an engine to go with it when I'm done but we will see.

added a walk animation (gun animations are up next, then I'll find a way to deal with the saw)
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on January 20, 2013, 11:08:54 AM
So here's the shooting animation, was thinking of maybe making his machine gun for his itemcrash.
I'm still new at spriting so if you see anything weird with the animations let me know, feedback helps me improve :)
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: PyramidHead on January 21, 2013, 12:00:07 PM
Nice! :) But may be his other hand is too big - it looks bigger than his face.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jorge D. Fuentes on January 21, 2013, 02:05:34 PM
Well he is Coller.
Right now it looks a little too similar to a super-buff Julius Belmont from AoS though.
The big hand is OK 'cuz it'll probably have a chainsaw on that hand most of the time.

My apologies gentlemen but I need some custom item carrying frames for my Richter Belmont sprites (for such situations as carrying a koopa shell, pswitch or any such items, preferably in the "carrying over the head" style of SMB2) I would sprite them myself but I'm terrible at spriting organic stuff and humanoid shapes from the ground up.

May I request someone who is good at cleaning up (please use the minimum amount of colors that would still make the picture pretty) a pixel picture for a cross stitch pattern?
Too many colors makes it hard to translate a picture to a pattern since not all colors in the computer can easily be matched to its equivalent thread color plus it is hard to stitch with all those colors! Just for reference: 1 pixel = 1 cross stitch.
And I just gave up editing the picture... (T___T) I am really bad at this...

This is the picture:

ShiKou, Its because its in .JPG, JPG does that kind of damage to sprites because it tries to blur everything so it consumes less memory space, I will try to find a clean sample to you, if I dont find one, I will clean it myself, since you are a nice person and ever plays with me in the food game. :P

edit: that was more fast than I thought.

Problem lies with the transparencies in sotn. I get a white water splashes, then it's blueish and then dark purple cause of the caverns. Wel if anyone knows please let me know.

So I'm trying to make a better looking animation for walking and I've made 2 versions so far, one is a 6 frame walk and the other an 8 frame (both different styles too).
Only drew rough outlines of his legs to see how the animation would look. any feedback/ suggestions?
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Omegasigma on April 27, 2013, 08:51:08 AM
do you plan to animate his clothing at all? at the moment both look decent, but the "test" one looks more like the traditional CV run/walk
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on April 27, 2013, 11:09:34 AM
yes, point is clothing isn't really the issue for me at the moment. I want to make sure I have a walking animation I stick to and then shade and animate the rest.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on April 28, 2013, 02:40:14 AM
OK so I made a casual walking animation instead since that seemed to be going better.
Points I'm still trying to work on:
- hands, any tips on how to draw a pixel hand diagonally without it looking weird? said hand is 3x3 pixels at maximum size.
- is the coat animation fluid enough?
- does his shoulder move too much?

Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Jop on April 28, 2013, 06:46:28 AM
I think the problem its that the body dont move, perhaps if the body moves like for example the Hector from Jorge D Fuentes it will look better

(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.inverteddungeon.com%2Fjorgefuentes%2Fimages3%2FAni-HectorWalking1.gif&hash=989f7ea217ada47d988af9ad77ce4a2b)

if he dont have this i cant judge the animation, pehaps that's what makes it look weird, im not good with the sprites so this is only a opinion of a rookie
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Belmontoya on April 28, 2013, 07:43:01 AM
There are a few problems here. 1 is that the body doesn't move. 2 is that the head stays perfectly level and also doesn't move, and 3 is that the left pops out in one frame and it should at least be 2 frames.

 In short, he looks really stiff.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on April 28, 2013, 08:05:17 AM
Thank you both for the honest and useful feedback, I redid some stuff and he appears more fluid now.
Not sure what you meant by: "the left pops out in one frame."

Edit: ok sorry this turned into a wall of questions, I'll sort them in a list to make it more readable,
if anyone can help/answer/suggest any of these it's greatly appreciated.

[1]Currently using 6 frames for the animation, would 8 be better to make the walking more smooth?
or does it look smooth enough with these 6?


[2]One more question: at the moment I am using 12 colors for the entire sprite
I noticed the overlap I have at his legs when he isn't running and was wondering if I should consider
using more colors to add contrast?

[3]While I'm at it I'm looking into what weapons Coller would realistically be using if he was in a game.
A given is his chainsaw, in his art he is seen holding a gun and also a machine gun.
So I'd like to know peoples take on these:



Thank you all for wondrous feedback it really helps me improve at what I'm doing.

First post  ;D
So, for my first post here, I figured I'd share a GIF I recently made of a recolored CV3 Trevor, made to look like Fake Trevor.
I made it just a few hours ago and I'm really proud of it.  :D
It's not as smooth as I had hoped, but trust me, there's a lot of stuff I've made that's pretty damn smooth animation-wise.  ;)
But, in the meantime, I would like some critique.  :)
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on April 29, 2013, 01:03:35 AM
It looks really good, depending on how/where you want to deploy it, it's fine.
Only thing that I could point out if you want it to be more smooth is to insert another frame during his 'step' animation while whipping.
And welcome to fanstuff section ^^

@donver. Sorry dude, what I meant to say was that his left arm sticks out in one frame. But it looks like you fixed it! Good work!

Now that I'm back on my editing laptop, I figured I'd share some more things with all the nice people here  :)
First, a spritesheet of recolored Trevor.
Second, a RoB-style leather whip animation for Simon.
Third, a chain whip animation for Simon.
Last, Simon swinging a CV2 dagger in a Alucard-like animation.
Hope you all like it ;D
EDIT: Thanks for all the help! I fixed the weird foot in Simon's animations after a few people pointed it out. I'll post the new results as soon as I finish the animation process.

Post by: Inccubus on April 29, 2013, 07:16:45 PM
Nice. Very smooth animations. Only thing is that leg shifting one pixel. That's a little unnatural. I could see the foot lift and the knee flexing a little. Really. Grab a whip and swing it while looking in a mirror.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Bel on April 29, 2013, 07:23:42 PM
Hmm.. Maybe if I shifted those frames a pixel to the right, it might look better.
And, actually, I sometimes swing a rope while looking in a mirror for reference every once in a while. It's led me to believe that Fake  Trevor's whip is the most realistically accurate. :P
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Belmontoya on April 29, 2013, 07:51:34 PM
Donver, I would say "yes" to all of your other questions.

When I am creating a sprite and I question something about it, I change it until I don't question it. More color and contrast almost always helps. I would say in this case, it most certainly will.

As far as how many frames to use, take a good look at all of your frames. See if each frame is doing a good job of filling in the blanks. Sometimes you may notice that one frame isn't serving as much to the animation as it would if it were changed and perhaps made a little more dramatic.

I've created walking animations with 6 frames that look like they have a lot more frames than your current walking animation does, so I would go through them and make sure that each frame is doing the best job it can. If the answer is yes, and you're still not happy, then add more frames.

Compare your work to some Konami sprites too, just to get an idea.

Good work man, it's coming along nicely! :)
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Donvermicelli on April 30, 2013, 01:14:09 AM
@Rozul: Nice work!, I think the alt whip version suits him better from a color perspective.
At the whipping animation I think it's indeed better to shift the rest of the sprite to the right, he is stepping forwards after all.
Notice that while he does so he shifts his weight to his front leg so most likely he will be slightly lifting his back heel up a bit.

@Montoya: thanks! I'll keep that in mind and mess around with it a bit more, maybe I should shift his body a bit more?
At least this animation is helping me figure out a ton of problems I've been having with the running one :P

Hi people, This is my first post. Firs of all, sorry for my bad english  :-X. I'm glad of joining the community.

I'm currently working on a fan game based on Castlevania. I hope i finish my game project some day  :P. I'm looking for a contributor (or contributors) to help me on creating monsters/enemies sprites for the game. I'm not using ripped sprites. The size for the main character sprite is 64X64, so it requires a lot of time to create the corresponding enemies.

This is how the hero looks:

This is a still frame of the Zombie (unfinished, just started today)

I'll post more from time to time. Tell me what you think. I'd like to hear opinions from castlevania fans. So, if someone is interested in the project, PM me. The game will be free, I can't pay any money. I can only give you credit for your work.

Ok so I increased to color count and made the leg area more detailed, I think I will rework the shading a bit after this though.
Also probably will use a softer version of the leg palette for the back leg to simulate shadow and depth more.

Edit: noticed a mistake in shading depth with the first two frames, fixed that.

Try to dont move the shoulder, when you walk the shoulder its stay in the same place mmm i dont know how to explain, try to walk like your character and see your shoulder its like he have dislocates shoulder, well that i think, if hi is not going to move his body make the shoulder do that it will see strange

Post by: Donvermicelli on May 03, 2013, 02:57:46 PM
while I disagree with the shoulder not moving while you walk I think I see what you mean. Too tired to go through all of the frames now to fix it but will do it first thing in the morning and see if that works. Thank you for the feedback.

its very good but i dont know if i see this wrong but when you walk or running and you put your left foot forward your left hand is going to be back and i dont know if i see good but there are sometimes when the right foot and hand are forward, perhaps its nothing, its better to wait Jorge or someone that know better this to answer

Vyck, that is absolutely amazing!
Also, yes, you can do what you wish with my whip animation.
For Hiryu's sencondary attack, he should have some sort of air-rolling spin-sword attack.
And, also, do you mind if I reference your Trevor and Sypha sprites for my fangame? I will give credit when I finally publish the beta of my game. :)

Looking for help finding a sprite for mud or really muddy water, swamp water, and sewer water. I looked at the ones in all of the castlevania games, and the only one that I thought looked good was humorously enough the one in castlevania 3. Which obviously wouldn't fit into SOTN. Any help here would be appreciated.

Wish i could help you their. We have mud in our game for swamplands. Lemme know,Esco, if you want it.  Also figured i'd post this. Credit here goes to Abster and Serio from Serio's site. Anyone know what frames our what for the sotn hyppogryph. I think it's rather obscure. Seems like their maybe extra frames i've never seen. When watching in footage it's rather hard to tell what it does. I know when it lands it spreads it's wings out, similarly when it makes eggs. Many moves i can tell but the last 4 rows other than it's death are rather hard to tell. Anyhow here's the sheet. If anyone knows what moves are what that would be cool. It's a bit boggling.

Yes Las I would like to see your mud effect. BTW here is hippogryph; btw some of these animations (like death) are missing frames. My advice next time is to set epsxe to run at 10 FPS; you can then switch between that and normal speed by hitting F7 to examine the frames easier in game. Save state at the boss too of course.

BTW, I did not forget about what we discussed in PM's; but I am still working on 2 of the examples in it and have been very busy.

Yes, not finished since I busy  :-X But for the full 3D conversion of Leon, Maybe take longer than Eric. :-[ I think I need LOI's Rom and PS2 Emulator for help for Leon's spriteset. :rollseyes:

Those sprites are truly amazing, excellent work on CV Judgement's version of Eric Lecarde and I especially dig your other Erics as well.

Thank. In my plan, the other 2 Erics will have similarly movement but may have something extra especially "Wind" who didn't carry spear in Idle sprites. They are harder to sprite than the Judgement version since they have more qualities.

I haven't been on this forum much lately, so here's a whip animation of Trevor. The motion in the whip is a combination of Richter's RoB whip and Christopher's ReBirth whip, but leans more towards Richter's RoB whip. At first, I took the first 2 frames from NES Trevor's whip animation, but added a 3rd overhead frame that resembles modern Belmont animation, and split the last frame to emphasize the swinging. Later, after adding a custom whip, I realized that the base animation needed some changes, so I added some.

Personally I've never been fond of either of those styles of whip animation. That said, your work is of quality nonetheless. What I've always wanted to see done is a whip animation like the one they used in the La-Mulana remake. Don't know if it would "work" for Castlevania, bit I'd still to see it for myself.

I've been having this idea in my head for a while about a CV game with digitized sprites kind of like shinobi on sega Saturn, or the original MK games.

I thought it looked really cool in shinobi. Simon in CV4 almost looks digitized. It might be a really cool look for a more realistic looking side scroller.

I'm not going to do this any time soon if at all because I'm in the middle of making a game with a completely different art style. But it's something I've thought about as I research costumes for characters.

But it could be fun to try to make a digitized Simon sprite sheet.

Has anyone ever done it?
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Lelygax on August 20, 2013, 03:58:05 PM
I've seem some people doing this in Newgrounds and Mugen. Also they did it in the web-series "Captain S", you should check it since its very fun.

I have some prohibited footage from MK1 Making of too (Jonhy Cage actor leaked it in his youtube channel before being taken down), you can only normally find photos from MK2 and videos of MK3, where they used the green screen trick for chromakey. But in MK1 they dont used a green or blue sheet, instead they used a very bright lamp in a dark room.

I'm thinking it should be an alternate sequel to Simon's Quest, set after the best ending of the game, since you see Dracula rise once again in that ending. The game will have 8-bit graphics (duh) with smooth animation, and improved control, similar to the likes of Richter in SotN or PoR. Most bosses from the NES trilogy will return, in a more powerful form.
Sadly, like all my other projects, I don't think I'll have the time and patience to complete it.

Its better, but this "air effect" is wrong, even in the official games I think. If it really had this much strength in this direction it would hit the floor or Simon foot. This air effect should be used in the part of animation when the whip is behind Simon in my opinion.

Well, the power-ups are going to be from Contra capsules. I don't know if you know, but basically there will be a weapon fusion system. I.E. Holy Water + Whip = Ice Whip. And all the regular Castlevania sub-weapons will have 3 varying forms increasing in power as well as an item crash. The whips will all have an Item Crash as well. This looks cool though. If you want to make more ideas, you can post them on my Vamprotector thread and I will look through them. If I use one or more of them in my game, I will credit you accordingly! Just make sure they are PNG files. Good work there!

So, like I was saying before...
I know that in the Saturn version of SotN, the sprites were streched. Also in that version was Richter's alternate outfit. Therefore, any sheet of the alternate outfit is stretched. Does anyone have a non-stretched version of Richter's alternate outfit? I want to use it as a base for my custom Juste.

I decided to recolor the terribly-colored HoD Blood Skeleton with different palettes.
With CV4's Blood Skeleton, I think it worked pretty well, so... that's good. I also tried to use the SotN Blood Skeleton, using only a selection of the colors (there's a HUGE amount of color, too much for the HoD sprite) and it made it look kind of like the one in CV1, but there's less contrast in the color scheme.  :P
I guess I really like the HoD Blood Skeleton, even if they have a terrible pallete.

I've always wondered what my persona would like like in Castlevania. If anyone has sprite editing skills, let me know. People often don't do stuff for free I'm aware, but it's better to ask and know that you're not going to get something, than not asking, and never know if there's someone out there that will consider your request.
 
I was thinking of some kind of werelion type boss as for me, not that I'm a bad guy or anything, but just to get an image in your heads. I don't have much experience sprite editing, so if there's anyone willing to teach me, I'll take that as well.

Hello dudes.
These are some spriteworks done by me, depicting SotN if it had been ported to the NES. A "demake" if you will. Some considerations are important:

-I know that it's pratically impossible to do what I did on the real NES. My intention is more to "imitate" the NES style than to do a complete, 100% NES limited art. It's an artwork intended for "imagining", not "developing".

-Alucard is made of two sprites, Mega-Man style. One for himself, another for his cape, which can change colors depending on what he is wearing. I'm still thinking if it would not be cooler to change his darkest color to depict the current cape instead of having a new sprite, like the old games used to do when wanting to show you that the character had a different equipment on. Oh well~

-Palette color-count on screen/per object, and tile-sizes/positioning were respected. HOWEVER real NES hardware palette limitations were not... Probably... A NES game palette is not free to pick and choose any color you want. It requires you to choose a set of colors from a pre-determined palette, then choosing the RGB inclination of hues and saturation for all the colors you have choosen for the game. It's pretty obvious I simply picked any color that fancied me, even though most of then came from the original NES palette... Probably...

-I did my best to respect the 256 bg tile-count per screenshot, but considering the nature of the game, this is one of the aspects that demonstrate how it'd be impossible on the real NES. The "Load CD" room being the greatest offender of the 256 bg tile-count rule. Even though a friend of mine counted the tiles and said they were ok, I'm still pretty sure it goes beyond the limit somewhere...

-Finally, there is some "adaptation" going on on the rooms. If you look carefully, some details were modified intentionally to fit the restrictions I respected. The Doppelganger room being the most obvious, as the portal in the middle is not multicolored and bright, having a "swirl" on the middle.

-In my defense I scream "Summer Carnival '92 Recca!" and may the art gods be with me xD

-Palette color-count on screen/per object, and tile-sizes/positioning were respected. HOWEVER real NES hardware palette limitations were not... Probably... A NES game palette is not free to pick an choose any color you want. It requires you to choose a set of colors from a pre-determined palette, then choosing the RGB inclination of hues and saturation for these colors you have choosen for the game. It's pretty obvious I simply picked any color that fancied me, even though most of then came from the original NES palette... Probably...

-I did my best to respect the 256 bg tile-count per screenshot, but considering the nature of the game, this is one of the aspects that demonstrate how it'd be impossible on the real NES. The "Load CD" room being the greatest offender of the 256 bg tile-count rule. Even though a friend of mine counted the tiles and said they were ok, I'm still pretty sure it goes beyond the limit somewhere...

-In my defense I scream "Summer Carnival '92 Recca!" and may the art gods be with me xD

I will have you know that I specifically searched for Richter 8-bit sprites models to avoid. Also I found yours and Jorge's, and I was kinda sad with myself because I though mine looked extremelly amateurish and unpolished. Even so, I pressed on. I really hope you don't think I've stolen your sprite, since the only one I have knowledge about is a mostly "white-ish" one. Also, it'd be really dumb of me to steal your work and post it here where you dwell (and other people are well aware about it).

Also, your work is fantastic. Love your whip animations.

First im going to say somethings, 1st for hector, yes the first sprites are based of the sprites of Jorge and i use that base to make the others so the only credit its to make the others and its not finished, i want a better jump but well its to show, about Trevor, why say made by Slogra? its my friend and we work in this sprites, so i think i must say all credits go to us but well.
 Edit: i was saying bad things that thanks to my friend i erased and never have to tell, sorry for the people how read this, i want opinions about my works thats all, a long time ago i wanted to do this but i was afraid of bad things that perhaps some one tell about the sprites but well i decide to go ahead on that, have a nice day

The cape isn't the problem, it's the legs.  Garments on the human body take their shaped based on the position of the body under them.  Try doing another version of him walking without his cape so you can be sure you get the leg positioning right, and then draw the cape over it.  So far the cape looks fine and has a pretty natural drag to it.

That's looking like a pretty good start, ZSB. You look like you've improved from your earlier stuff over on Inc., especially where highlighting is concerned. His (your?) shirt could do with a little more contrast and maybe a darker tone in there somewhere, but overall, it's not bad at all. Good job. :)

And thanks, Inc. I share a similar dream.

Got his base tones and shaping done. Now I just have to start shading everything. Still not 100% on his weapon, but that thing's pretty funky in design to begin with, nevermind at several thousandths of the in-game scale and held at a different angle. But it's good enough for now, I think. Also got him in the right dimensions for the FFVI battle screen. Of course, he takes up literally half of that screen, but since hypothetically there'd just be Lightning's sprite on there with him, I think it's fine.

Almost there, woot!

Also, I need to know if the checker pattern fading up from his robe bottom blends alright with the cloth folds. I worked like mad to keep the folds consistent, but kept going back. Wanna know if I was just being paranoid or if it really was that bad.

Need to fix the shading on his rear hand, since it's almost invisible at 1:1.

I think that that scythe might be my new favorite thing I've ever sprited. I'm a little iffy on Lindzei's face there, but that's more to do with the angle than anything, so I'm not terribly concerned about it.

Post by: Dracula9 on May 27, 2014, 07:41:17 PM
Considerably better. There still could do with some minute detailing, though. If you look at Richter's idle animations in RoB/DXX/any game where he's sleeveless, you can see that in the third frame of his "exhale" that his arm "moves" forward by extending the forearm and shortening the hand by one pixel. His back muscles also roll in tandem with this movement. Of course that would be more hidden in a thicker undershirt and frock coat, but it would still be there. You've already got a bit of it, but it might need that little extra push. It's hard to tell without that arm extension, though.

But that one definitely looks better than the first. Keep it up. And I think I have Hanz's sheet on my hard drive, so I'll look. If I don't, I'll pop in the CVBla boards and see if I can get them from Serio. He's usually cool with older, finished sheets, so long as they were his to begin with (hence why nobody can get their hands on Cyber's Nathan sheet; Serio doesn't share what isn't his, and Cyber doesn't want them floating around either), so I should be able to get you what you're looking for.

Also, Bhunivelze's done. Finally.

As for his disproportinate looks, Zero...that's actually the way he looks. In-game, his body is very elongated. It's almost at the level as Alucard in Hellsing (Alucard...level...heh). The fact that he has two heads (the other on the back of his front one), and that massive horn headpiece crown thing, only serves to make him look even wonkier. But since he's got that Vedic Rakshasa vibe going on(now that I think about it, Bhunivelze shares a lot of traits - though downplayed - with the Rakshasa king, Ravana; only two heads instead of ten, but his eight wings and two arms are reminiscent of Ravana's twenty arms), that's somewhat justified.

Isolating the render frames with tedious screencapping, and spriting over them, for maximum accuracy. And great justice.

Reason being is my laptop decided to up and die on me, and while I still have all of what I had, and was able to relocate most of the things, this is one of the tougher ones to relocate. It also features Johnathon as a place holder example for some of the sprite frames.

Nothing's wrong with the wrestler - actually, he's among my favorites - but whenever I bring the Undertaker boss from Swagman, people almost always assume I mean the wrestler, and thus irritation and mass confusion ensues.

Because I was a member on Inc. back when Old Inc. was still around. You, luckily, didn't join up until after the board revamp. Be glad you did, because Old Inc. was the stuff of nightmares. The shit that went on there is legendary (and often infamous) with the oldies on the boards now. Some of the stuff was just fucking hilarious, though:

The Discord Incident, in which one of the then-mods hacked the forum config and gave everybody mod powers. You can imagine the absolute chaos that ensued.

Favic, which I wasn't around for, was a lovely time in which the Internet's favorite little shitbag had some fun at Inc.

And then there was Bearz. A glorious, shining example of why ten-year-olds should not be allowed on the Internet (assuming he was indeed ten like he claimed, or just a master troll, we still don't know), this guy once started a "which member would you rape" thread, made some of the absolute worst sprites ever and refused to take any crit for them or make changes, turned his sprite thread into, IIRC, and eighty-something page fiasco of a thread that was moved to the Smeghead boards. Oh, and we can't forget that he was a paleontologist with an dick bigger than the Searz Tower. And he had like three alts which he used to obviously defend his base account.

That was a fun thread. I used to read it just to laugh my ass off, before Old Inc.'s domain plug got pulled.  :'(

Yeah, be glad you joined up when you did. People are much, much more civil than they used to be, and the mod selection is far better than it was. I can put up with Inc. now because Inc. isn't nearly as bad as other places and people I've run into.

LOL. Also, whaddya guys think of those new sprites? III FEEEEEEEEED OFF OF YOUUUUUR COMMENTSSSS. In all seriousness, I need some criticism before I do his walk animation.

Also, I was about ten when I first joined Inc. so.... I guess some people never grow up, they just learn more interesting things.

Alright. But I seriously need feedback on that NES-X

Also, I realized how choppy one of my *old animations were,      *http://fav.me/d6epsd6
so I decided to remake it. The result is below.

That's pretty good. Would make a nice addition to the original game.


Again, excuse my double post, but this needs to be posted. I started goofing off in paint earlier, and this dude was born.
I put Chris there for comparison.

The proportions and stance on these look awkward.
The arms are too small.
The legs look twisted in the wrong directions.

Just throwing this out here:
I managed to rip Shanoa's raw Pneuma VFX using DeSmuME + GLIntercept, but sadly they're just that; raw VFX that needs to be animated using 3D transformation and layering and stuff. If anyone can replicate the animations as sprite animations, it'd be great.

...Except the Pneuma + weapon glyph union one, since that's basically just Crissaegrim all over again anyway.
(About the duplicate union sprites with an inverted palette, I dunno why it's there, but it's there.)

All rips are as-is because I was afraid I might end up screwing up some of them when assembling them.

So, I upgraded Dracula's 2nd form from Castlevania III as pixel practice. Tried giving him a more "nightmarish" look, while maintaining the alien-ish aspect he originally had.
I know some people here are remaking Castlevania III, so you're free to use the sprite if you wish, as long as credit is given. Please keep in mind I'm not doing extra frames for him. If I do however change my mind and do some frames, I'll let the person using it know.

@VladCT: Cornell has come to a halt until I can finish some work. As you may know, I'm working on a game myself so I have little time to spend on a continuous work (like a spritesheet), and I can't simply sit to do one or two frames per day. However, I and Don are working together to bring Hector and Cornell into the fray. They haven't died.

Wow. NES sprites are too easy to make. I made a 100% custom Trevor in one night.

Rows go as:
1.Walking and standing
2.Standing and whipping
3.going up and down stairs
4.crouch whipping
5.crouch walking and idle crouching
6.Leather whip
7."holding up pose", Richter Belmont, and CV3 boxart sprite

EDIT: Damn, I forgot to do a 100th post special. :( That CV3 dracula is looking good.
I upgraded Richter to match his NES counterparts, as well as some other fixes.

EDIT#2: added hurt poses

Hot damn, yo! Those sprites are killer, dude.


Edit:
Here are some modest recolors I did.
Nothing Spectacular.
Just an upgraded Alucard Wolf Form with a more common brown coloration and the harness and sword completely separated from the rest of the palette.

Next are some variants for the RoB Axe Armor based on other versions.
Going clockwise from the upper left, original axe armor, the weak green axe armor from SotN, the red axe armor from CVDX, and the axe armor from SCV4.

And the last two are SotN Axe Armor recolors based on the Red Axe Armor and Antique Axe Armor respectively.
The red one is based on CVDX again and the antique is based on SCV4 and I gave it a 'Golden Axe' just cause I'm a silly bastard.

Ive been workin on this mostly on my breaks at work for the last week or so and I was lookin for some suggestions before I continue. Its an engine Im workin on for more then just a zelda game but I figured a remake of zelda 1 would be a good idea to make to develop the engine and my systems like the editor and stuff.

Anyway as you can see in the pic its the first screen from zelda 1. The 2d version is how it looks with my tileset Ive been workin on and the 3d is how it looks in my engine currently. Dont worry about how the ground looks different in each I just threw it together to see how it looked.

My question is: How could I go about making the actual 3d tiles look closer to the 2d version. Keep in mind this is 3d... so its textures on polys not just flat tiles. I also wanna keep the poly limit super low to help keep 2d game in 3d look

Here's some futzing around I did with Megaman since that seems to be the flavor of the week. ;P
It's my own retooling of his original design with a bit of the Wily Wars sprite thrown in.
And that is my interpretation of an 8-bit X that I did partially 'cause I didn't like the ones I've seen around and for scaling purposes against Rock.

(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffc04.deviantart.net%2Ffs71%2Ff%2F2012%2F028%2Fc%2F6%2Fnew_sprite_for_megaman_v0_1_by_lordvanya-d4nx80u.png&hash=ab3210d0c32e882e5f0f7b94371551fb)

And this is an edit I made of the Archie Comics sprite of Timeman in 8-bit style.
I feel like I should tweak the right arm (left from your view).
Maybe move it up a pixel or two so it doesn't look like it's as long at the elbow as his whole other arm.

@ Inccubus i really dig the time man 8 bit megamn sprites their!..i often wonder if played in a level what the nes famitracker midi would sound like..i havent yet youtubed to see if anyone did a version yet. I do remembre that song being pretty neat in the psp game..and cutman's music especially. But yeah it's so crazy to see him in 8 bit..

@Las
There was one dude that I remember that did famitracker versions of both Timeman's and Oilman's stage themes.
There are two versions, actually. He did one using exactly the same "instruments" as in MM1, and later on he updated them to sound a bit more like the later games.
I actually have the nsf files of the first versions.

Jop, your sprites are great, but they don't look CV style. They look more like you made your own style. If your going for a CV style, try using darker colors with more contrast.

I tryed to make something like the activation of the DSS of Nathan but i think its a mix of both, the animation of X and the DSS of Nathan i think there is one sprites that i cant see, perhaps i make that sprite faster, i need to see that and make that part slower.
 The form of the body it was made by slogra but i made the coat moves and the hair, that was a hell since im not good making that things but since my friend dont know how to do that i was the better option XD.

Two of my creations, done in my spare time. Firstly a screenshot of a secret boss I fought on SotN:
(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ezimba.com%2Fwork%2F140909C%2Fezimba14497888689604.png&hash=7da4cd9a84d8db59ae1d5ba85883a08b)

Of course, it is fake. The sprite was created for a special post on a page I moderate at, aiming to talk about videogame rumors and the such, and teaching people about the validity of rumors without source. The creature, also, wasn't choosen by chance, as "Chimera" also stands for "Fantasy", "Rumor", "Lie".

The rumor was something along the lines of "Chimera is a secret boss that can only be accessed through ludicrous means, and is supposed to be the guardian of the trapdoor. Although everyone knows how to glitch through the trapdoor, nobody knew how to properly open it, until now. Chimera is the secret boss which, upon defeat, unlocks the trapdoor".

I made some other sprites too, so I'm dumping them all here :P
The first is my vision of what a Fleaman should look like, more like a Flea+Human mutant hybrid than a cute tiny man. The other is a Faun/Pan as a Castlevania enemy. Maybe I can use these guys someday:

Nice work!
My only critique is not of the sprites themselves, but if you're gonna use it as a Castlevania enemy you should go with Satyr, not Faun.
Fauns are good-natured while Satyrs are wild tricksters.

         I suggest having his chest move in and out to signify breathing. Unless you want him to not breath at all.
Title: Re: Spritework Request & Showcase Thread
Post by: Las on October 04, 2014, 11:23:16 AM
Well in this case his chest isnt showing, the only real alternative woudl be to move his back legs up and down to make it look like their some front torso movement. But with his head moving and the other heads..it must be done in a way were they all look like they are still attached and not floating in the air. I did think about that before having justhis body go up and down. So yeah i will more than likely attempt to alter his forward torso from the back end. If his head goes up with whataever there is of his chest(not really present) it could throw the goat and dragon head off so as to not look like it's actually attached to the body at all. I had to fiddle with that several times...cause that's exactly what happened up until this last take. It's alot of mechanical thinking. I know what you mean about the breathing..but it must be done in such a way the rest of the moving parts arent thrown off. Hopefully by the next time it will be complte. I am however working on revamping some other stuff.  Perhaps its possible to have his head/chest, middle torso and then back leg/but/snake tail..alternate and be different moving sections..this  maybe a bit too drastic..but i wont be sure unless i try it..

zero, did you notice the goat ears flopping and the drool from the dragons' mouth. Jop like those. Just trying to get creative you know!

OK, since I made a lot of awards and wanted to give my input with some ideas for the sprite contest, but arrived too late and it was already decided that only one award was allowed, I'm dumping the sprites here!

Here are the awards. Only the Golden Bat is on the contest:
(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ezimba.com%2Fwork%2F141006C%2Fezimba14497826674104.png&hash=0092cc0950a13a8f839c139dd56ad674)
Here is the rationale I used to create them (plus some other sprites to accompany the suggestions I had in mind):

The first three awards follow a Castlevania Enemy Hierarchy: Golden Vampire Bat (Dracula) for the 1st place, the Silver Reaper Scythe (Death) for the 2nd place, and lastly the Bronze Medusa Head (Annoying/Hard enemy) for the 3th place.

Then I made special awards, too, based on the discussion I read at the thread and some of Uzo's quips:
-The Alloy Vampire Killer was a special award for the Honorable Mentions contestant. Sometimes we want to give the 1st place for two people, or they come to a Draw but one of them is too good to be 2nd, but not as good to be 1st. So they get an Alloy Vampire Killer. Meant to represent the Belmont's stuggle to defeat Dracula (symbolized by the 1st place winner trophy).

-The Alloy Pot Roast was a special award for artworks that are very original, but lack pixel skill. Different from the honorable mention above, though, this one doesn't look good enough to deserve one of the main three, but you wish it did, as the concept is too good to overlook, and the artist only needs more skill. (Meant to represent a player that tries with all his soul to beat Castlevania, but can't. He does, however, get to find a Pot Roast, and finding a Pot Roast is always welcome, but it doesn't help him beat the game, yet. It does makes him confident in trying again, though).

-The Heart Brooch was for people who took part on the contest, but won nothing. It's a "Participation Prize" and denotes a spriting devotee who is still too rough to truly compete. It serves as a spur to keep the artist spriting! (Meant to represent the commonplace-ness of the Heart. Everyone can get a Heart, but not everyone can beat the game)

-The last one, hoo boy... The Graveyard Duck prize would be awarded to those artworks edging on trollish. It's so bad it's good. Being bad at spriting, though, is not reason to win it. You would've to be so bad and the art must have such a sarcastic theme to it, that it wraps around and becomes actually good. Would be a very rare trophy to win.

OK, since I made a lot of awards and wanted to give my input with some ideas for the sprite contest, but arrived too late and it was already decided that only one award was allowed, I'm dumping the sprites here! You're free to use them as you will EXCEPT for the Golden Bat which is this forum's.

Here are the awards. Only the Golden Bat is on the contest:
(https://castlevaniadungeon.net/forums/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ezimba.com%2Fwork%2F141006C%2Fezimba14497826674104.png&hash=0092cc0950a13a8f839c139dd56ad674)
Here is the rationale I used to create them (plus some other sprites to accompany the suggestions I had in mind):

The first three awards follow a Castlevania Enemy Hierarchy: Golden Vampire Bat (Dracula) for the 1st place, the Silver Reaper Scythe (Death) for the 2nd place, and lastly the Bronze Medusa Head (Annoying/Hard enemy) for the 3th place.

Then I made special awards, too, based on the discussion I read at the thread and some of Uzo's quips:
-The Alloy Vampire Killer was a special award for the Honorable Mentions contestant. Sometimes we want to give the 1st place for two people, or they come to a Draw but one of them is too good to be 2nd, but not as good to be 1st. So they get an Alloy Vampire Killer. Meant to represent the Belmont's stuggle to defeat Dracula (symbolized by the 1st place winner trophy).

-The Alloy Pot Roast was a special award for artworks that are very original, but lack pixel skill. Different from the honorable mention above, though, this one doesn't look good enough to deserve one of the main three, but you wish it did, as the concept is too good to overlook, and the artist only needs more skill.

You're free to use the sprites however you wish!

Dude, you should run these through the mods before making them open-source. Alot of good ideas there that could get used in future contests...

For your sprites, I think the head position should change a little, and the hair should move. You also need to get out of the habit of a horrific thing called "Pillow Shading". It is one of the worst things you can get into a habit of doing.

coming from you makes me feel good but I can not understand the part you say Skipped too many leg days, no soy muy bueno con el ingles pero me gustaria que me explicaras en español que trataste de decirme ahi.

Es un dicho que dicen en los Estados Unidos cuando una persona muscular tiene unas piernitititas "Skipped 'Leg Day' " sugiere que la persona, cuando fue al gimnasio, no trabajo en sus piernas en el dia apropiado para trabajar en los musculos de piernas, si no que concentro todos sus dias en el gimnasio solo a su torso/brazos.

(In English)
It's a saying in the USA when a muscular person has itty bitty legs, they "Skipped 'leg day', which suggests that the person, upon going to the gym, did not work on his or her legs at all in their appropriate day to do so, but rather they concentrated completely on their arms/torso.

So, while watching Uzo curse at the gods for dying so much at Kid Dracula, I decided to actually upgrade Kid Dracula's sprite. Lelygax went further and proposed for me to create more forms for Kid Dracula beyond his Bat form. So I did:

For Kid Dracula himself, I made his colors a little different than the originally intended. He now has a wolf form, his bat form is an upgrade from the form he takes in the intro of the game (which boggles my mind as to why they didn't use this one ingame), and a mist form that is enabled when Kid Dracula holds his breath, and persists until he has to breathe again lol.

Did you use those LOS2 sprites from the character book and painted over them?

Or did you do those by just eying reference and painting?

Good job, Jop. You keep spriting like that and you'll be an expert in it in now time!

You should make a goal of making a full sheet. That way you can start having a influx of completed work that can be judged and improved upon.

Keep entering those sprite contests too! You are definitely improving leaps and bounds!

Thanks and about the full sheet i made the full sheet for the characters (at least the sprites i need), i dont show because i think it will be anoying but you can see the sheets here:

 The new update i made for Simon Belmont from MoF i dont have there because i dont finish the sheet.

So to see how well I can sprite for myself I tried to draw Reinhardt from scratch. Unfortunately, stupid old me being a stickler for details ended up nearly running out of colors from doing the boots alone, resulting in his under armor sharing colors with his skin, and his vest with his pants, among other things. So, aside from that, how much did I screw up?

Looks good! I would use solid colors for the vest rather than that checked pattern you've got going, but that's because I'm thinking of what might happen if one goes full-spritesheet (that mesh will do funky things when set up in an animation sprite).

Nice to see some love for the N64 characters. :D

Well, not doing what I did there would probably break the illusion that it's not using skin colors (15 + transparency color limit and all), and like I said, I'm a stickler for details. :V

Nice! Those are pretty kick-ass and they fit the style pretty damn well.

In a completely unrelated note I've been working on recreating Firebrand from Demon's Crest in GameMaker.
I'm also adding some new abilities to him to improve the game play that currently mostly only exists in my head... like crouching.

EDIT:
Also,in case anyone wants it I'm including an attachment of the sprite rip I did of him. It doesn't include any of the projectiles and whatnot, but his actual sprites are complete including some that were missing from the only other sheet I was able to find on line.

Yeah, this all started when I was thinking about how I'd go about remaking both Quest games in the style of Crest.
I even wrote up some mini-design documents and a longer one just about how I'd expand the different forms from Crest.
It always bugged me that you never get to use the completed Fire Crest and the Heaven Crest as their own things.

Arikado sprites in SotN format made a long time ago for my personal '99 project (which also started a long time ago, but in text only). Arikado will be a playable character if one day I ever release a fangame of my own. He's one of four playable characters (Julius, Lenora Belnades, Arikado and Timothy DaNasty), each having active role in the storyline, which is told in "chapters" where the protagonism is switched among these four characters. No, you do not control them all at the same time, you only control one in his own chapter, and each chapter interwines with the others. And: DaNasty is an enemy, not a friend. So yes, you get to control a foe too. I can speak more about it in a new thread if someone is curious.

To the left, original Arikado and Alucard sprites. To the right, Arikado in "Arikado mode" and "Alucard mode". He would have two gameplay modes, where he switches between his true power, and his repressed power, through a story-driven gimmick. Yes, the aesthetic change would be mostly only his hair, but there is a reason for that: I find it simply ridiculous that Alucard's armor "appears" when he needs to enter his vampiric powers. Thus, the hair is the only change, as the power supressor he uses also makes his hair short and black, and when removed, returns his hair to it's platinum color and length. "Alucard" is playable in a business suit, but with flowy, white hair, but his gameplay changes drastically. Also, there is a price to pay to enter "Alucard" mode, though :P

I have such an ungodly amount of work to do in other things, that this project might never lift ground  :(

And yes, I felt like posting about it exactly because the creator of Tears of Pain did. I felt motivated to share with you, but my ideas are much different than his, so no, I'm not ripping anyone off (and God knows how much I try to evade looking like this).

Also, one thing I noticed: When I had internet at home, this goddamned thread was a wasteland. Now that I'm having difficulties, you dudes post the most awesome things everyday. C'mon, not fair :P
