Here’s another sprite from this week’s site update. I almost forgot that I’d sketched a crappy lil’ Penguin pose along with ’80s Brainiac, because I was going to sketch an all-new sprite of the dapper criminal. The stupidity continued when I finished the sprite and realized I’d made him too small and had to resize the sprite. It seems to have worked out okay, though.
Toy fans can probably figure out by who Cobblepot was drawn with and the coloring of the sprite that I had the Kenner Super Powers Collection on my mind. He’s the last that I needed a sprite or sprite edit of for a complete set of the original 12 figures.
Some of the Round Over art from Taito’s Superman arcade game was based on the art of the legendary Neal Adams, a man known for drawing some of the best Superman art ever, including one of the greatest team-ups of all time. I haven’t been able to find the picture that the first round over picture is based on, but I’ve found the head for round two and the full art for rounds three and four. Does anyone recognize the round one pic (posted twice to keep the layout from screwing up) or the round two pic’s body?
This is (almost) all of the new sprites from last week’s comic book/super-hero updates. Spider-Man was edited from a Capcom fighting game sprite, but the rest were done from scratch. Bravoman and Chelnov the Atomic Runner are both celebrating the 25th anniversary of their games hitting arcades in 1988, so I had to get them in on the action, too.
These screens are from the GFX Generators, a clunky web-page project of mine that lets you make your own screens like that. A nice side effect is that I can easily make site update previews like this. Lazy, but true!
The Graphic Generators and Custom Sprite Galleries have been updated. The VsMaker and GroupShot generators just got a big overhaul I’ve been working on for months. There’s a new screen mode in the GroupShot that demonstrates the user input feature. Lots of Darkstalkers, KoF and even Super Dodge Ball/Kunio-Kun characters and sprites were added along with other things I’m too lazy to mention again. Just read the update log and have fun. Please let me know if find any bugs.
edit: Thanks to anyone who has followed, reposted or just checked out this Tumblr. I’ve been working this update for a while and haven’t had much time to post here.
