V_Translanka, I know you said you didn't like the idea of sprites and all, but reading your post in the story thread about Amy made me want to try my hand at her.  So...



The silver rings at the top of her thighs are the knives you said she carried, and though I tried to animate the knives coming up from her boots, it didn't look right.  Additionally, the light silver things on her gloves are shurikens and other small weapons, if you can imagine.

I see what you mean by the fact that a lot of detail is lost in the sprite-making process, but I still think the basic idea of a character can be displayed very well in this manner.  That's what I'm trying to do - provide a basis for the character to be imagined, rather than a substitute for a mental image.

Haha, yeah, I guess I get it now...Especially since we're just dealing with sprites here, it wouldn't hurt a mental image that much anyhow...I just hope no one (although I guess like said these won't be in the story or anything) will think of these images when they're reading as a substitute for the mental image created...

That looks great for Amy...Although her hair is supposed to be more pulled back...Or, did I write that? I have character descriptions in my file for writing about them, so I'm not sure if I wrote everything like their descriptions into the actual story or if I just wrote it in my little helper descriptions of them as characters...

I don't really see any of the knives, ninja stars, or chakras (thems would be circular  boomerang-like deals) in the sprite though...But I wouldn't expect there to be...16-Bit doesn't allow for the most detail in such little images...Overall it looks nice and fitting with the Chronoverse.

Thanks, dude.  I tried my best to express detail, but it is only a sprite.

Also, I just spent the last 30 minutes making this from scratch.  See if you can guess who it is.

It's Green Lantern, right?

If Green Lantern can dual-wield an assault rifle and a shotgun, then yes.

No offence, but...I don't see that in the sprite...

I've updated the pic a couple of times, so you may have to refresh the page.  And if that doesn't work, look at his hands and you'll see a gun in each one.  They're kinda dark (they are almost pitch black weapons, after all) but they're there.

Oh yeah, and Green Lantern could...Only his weapons would probably be made of the green light produced from his power ring-deal.

It means I wasn't sure, and I couldn't figure out why you'd be making a sprite for Master Chief anyway. I forget that not everyone is an anti-X-Box troll like moi.

Ah, okay.  Well, here's another one I just whipped up.



Whatcha think (on a purely artistic and detail-oriented level)?
