[Oni + Evil Ryu] SF4 Characters as SF3 Sprites

Check out the Tutorial here

Hey everyone, I made some SF4 characters in the SF3 style.
The Gouken one I posted on another thread as an April Fool's joke, but I started making more so I thought I'd start a new thread, enjoy~

*update* Oni + Evil Ryu


Since a lot of people have been asking similar questions, here's a short FAQ:

What program do you use?
I use Photoshop for everything. I learned the basics from this awesome tutorial: Derek Yu's Pixel Tutorial and also zweifuss.com for SF3 sprite reference.

Can I use your sprite for__________
Please feel free to use any of these sprites for anything you want.

Please make [character]
I'm not really interested in making any characters who already appeared as an Alpha style sprite, other than alternate costumes.

    Ah, I thought I seen this before.

    If you're really planning on making some more, I wish you luck. These turned out fierce.

    Very pro dude! They fit right in with the other characters. They're looking about the right size as well. Very very good job.
    The following statment is true. The previous statment is false.

    As mentioned in the older thread, you've got that SFIII sprite style downpat. The newer Rufus one is yet another example which shows it.

    gouken is beast there. i also hate you for being so good at it. the color scheme is very sf3. sf3 for some reason is still my fave in the series.

    i saw a sf2 rufus before but this is another detail of work. you should try to do a standing animation for your fave fighter. thatd be cool to see

    Sprite animation is no joke when it comes to the solid amount of mind numbing work it takes... Would be fun to get a complete set of the 'missing' characters from SF3 and crank up that roster though. I really like the color palette used in both of these- Gouken especially looks like he belongs.

    Hi. ;)

    Still not happy with it though, I'm still making a few changes.

    --

    Back onto the OP,

    I like them both, though, Rufus seems a bit off on the color and shading, but only when compared to Yang. His pallete bugs me the most because of the fact that he has a lot of large spots that are one color. It's hard to avoid this though, I learned that making Rufus in SF2 style.

    I think the outlines seem little too boldly done on the darker areas (black on Rufus, grey tunic on Gouken), and doesn't match the original style and pops out too much giving it that cartoony look instead of a 3D-esque style. Rufus' outfit seems to depend too much on outline as well.

    Facework and framework is definitely excellent though.

    I have a whole flash drive of completely incomplete animation sheets. It takes me about a month to perfect a 2/8-bit sheet, and even longer for 16-bit (I've only ever completed one). I don't think a 32 bit sheet would be possible for me to complete within my lifetime unless I dedicate myself to it for a year or two.

    Oh my god these are beautiful. I would love to see Rufus doing a dive kick in the 3s engine. You should seriously send these to the Capcom blog or Ono or something.

    Like I said, animation is no joke. Unless you could somehow compile a team of spriters that can swallow egos and work together to lighten the workload. My Felicia animation is taking yonks due to the higher amount of detail- so much more is noticeable in the HD. I've learned alot just from working on that.

    Other than Gouken's left hand, excellent! Great job! (^_^)-b

    I'd suggest copypasting someone's hand. With the tons of frames SF3 has there has to be one that fits well.
  • Mr ListMr List Lord of the Scrubs Joined: Posts: 1,393
    is gouken really that much larger than akuma?
    (i cant remember seeing them together in sf4)
    (also they have different dads dont they? lol shoto chav mam)

    can you put up those two sprites you made in 500% please?

    i want a good look at them.

    they are both very good but i would have expected a seth one in the first round up since he would be a mod of urien or gill.

    Wow.. truly amazing. I love the Rufus one, but as Mr. F1xxy said, it does stand out a bit. Must be hard. Spriting was a biotch for me while I had an interest in MUGEN (I made a Radioactive Man one from a Venom, using Sagat's head). Shading was a bitch too haha.

    Also, Gouken's hand seems a bit funky, maybe find another one?

    Overall, really nice, did way better than I did back at MUGEN.

    By the way, if you were to make characters out of these, that'd be kickass. Even better, send those chars to someone big at CAPCOM (Seth K. , Ono) and see what they will do haha

  • steamboy33steamboy33 Joined: Posts: 88
    thanks everyone :)

    I agree that Rufus doesnt really fit in, I think that's because 90% of the SFIII cast is muscular, which is something that defines the look of the sprites in general. That's why I think i'll do Abel next. Or Fuerte.....or Seth.. hell, they're all muscular

    Sick. I can imagine these took quite a bit of time and effort. Looks like you paid pretty close attention to detail, too. Especially awesome to see Viper in the 3S style.

    How about Abel next?!
    Please let me know if you need stick mods or repairs!

    i zoomed them up:

    2cfqg68.jpg

    you can clearly see rufus is by far the best sprite of the 3.
    its a perfect representation.

    c.viper is next and then gouken.

    i think vipers foot is too long and as others have said goukens hand looks a little fliddy.

    but quite frankly thisis amazing work.bravo.

    are you only doing unique sf4 characters?
    i wouldnt mind seeing blanka or dhalsim done in that style.

    but that means there are only threee left :(

    you should do some extra frames for these guys then. :bgrin:

    those look really damn good. Good job, bro.
    I see how much was editing and how much was original work from scratch. Either way, I'm sure those took forever.

    I haven't sprited at all for a few years myself. Might have to for a decent avatar. :p

    Anyways, lookin forward to your Abel if you get around to it.

    @ BillJersey

    Actually, they were all from scratch except Seth (didn't want to reinvent the wheel with him looking so close to Urien). The other ones I did while referencing from SF4 screenshots and existing SF3 sprites :)
  • kte03kte03 The Hundreds Joined: Posts: 1,013
    DUDE, that Seth looks deadly!

    EDIT

    I worked with Urien before, I never really liked his left calf-to-foot, the shading on his calf-to-foot seemed to really stick out, and it does the same for Seth. Either way, AMAZING JOB

    my post was worded wrong. I actually meant to ask how much was editing/original. Not that I seen how much was. (kinda looked pompous now that read over it. :p)

    But I still got my answer. I'm very impressed. Its a looong process to do. You used screenshots side by side, or did you sprite over them? Because the accuracy of the stances is the first thing I noticed.

    I sized the screenshots down, morphed them a bit (to match sf3 proportions) then painted over them :)

    This is how modern day VG companies make their sprites. they make/look at a 3D model of the char and then they draw over it.

    Seriously godlike stuff

    is it not possible to teach a computer to make/draw/create pixel sprites from a 3d model?

    ps

    sorry 'bout off topic.

    seth is cool, but a little boring (not your fault guy).

    pps
    how can people say twelve could never fit into a game with sf2 characters when that pile of malformity is sf4?

    Haha i got tired of trying to coordinate the exact player positions ^^;

    I chose to put him vs. Remy because they are both from France (i think?)
