Can some one rip the water for me from this scene? Just the water in the Foreground that's moving left and right...

One thing that I really want to do is make SotN style special effects, like all the stuff with transparency.

You could always use Photoshop. And if you don't have it, I could help you.

I actually use Paint.NET, which can also do transparency, but there's a lot of really complicated stuff about the SotN graphical effects, especially fire.

Not really. And also, I use PAINT.net for that little shadow behind Maria, and the transparent background. You should try Aesprite. It has transparency, you can make APNG's and high quality gifs with it too.

Someone should make a Mega Man style Maria. She practically has the Mega Buster!

Ripped the Inner Quarters clouds background from Aria. It's not perfect and it's only a single loop of the sequence, so the thunder loop is pretty bad, as are the few skips, but it's halfway decent. I'm trying to get a better one now.

Anyone got the whips from the "Red Richter" version of Simon's Quest Revamped?

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

Nice! I like it. I dunno much of that looks like it would be quite doable on an NES.

This could be translated with NES styled graphics. Someone should take this project up and you do the sprites for it because they all look great!

Ha, that Richter sprite looks a lot like a prototype NES Richter I had made a long time ago. Same colors, even!  :o

Thank you all for the input guys.

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.
