A loooong time ago when trying out CVII did I have the thought... What if Dracula was playable? I tried to imagine what he'd look like was a playable character on screen. This was of course way before IGA brought out AoS. Good sprites by the way. The walking sprite could use more work to help smooth it out a bit.  :)

Rather than him extending his shoulders forward while walking... Perhaps Batman can help you out.



Reference the way his arms and chest are moving. It'd give it a more... natural, but still powerful, walk.

NOTE: Yes, I'm aware you can't see his boots and gloves and cape all too well.

I like that walk, I think that's a brilliant representation. I'll definitely give it a go.

I've been pondering the idea for awhile now, atleast 2 years, and I sort of decided to give it a go. It's basically a what if but with sprites. I thought "what if Dracula was a playable character" I think he would definitely have a more human size, abit larger than Alucard. So I started compiling sprites, so far I have:

Stance


Sword attack (unfinished)


Crouch


This is the walk so far, it would probably be changed in future.


The reason I'm making this thread isn't to merely show off my sprites, I wanted people's opinions and ideas. Such as what magic abilities Dracula would have, how he should react when hit, other abilities and so on. I want any ideas or opinions any of you may have and would be very happy if anyone wants to get involved in the spriting. :)

This could be great!
