Thoughts on Sam Sho Atomiswave


#1

I asked some folks on the street what they though about SNK going back on their promise of Hi-Res sprites for Sam Sho AW, and this was their reply:

That is pretty fucking nice. :tup:


#3

Glad someone liked it…

I’m working on a Cham Cham right now that should be done in around Wednesday/Thursday, and then I’m not sure what I’ll move on to.


#4

I want that green bastard back in the game.

Here here!

Gen-an was the first char I played when SS first came out, and when I think of Sam Sho, Gen-an is still the first char that comes to mind.

Gen-an has so much fucking personality! I can’t get enough of his “scratch my ass” and “babies popping out” win poses from SS2.

Yeah I always remembered something about him turning the opponent into hamburger as one of his win quotes I think. He and Galford were my first too, there was a sam sho and a World heroes I think it was machine at my stop n go years back.

#8

Sure dude, when I’m done with it, do whatever you want with it…so long as you give me those hella props.


#9

hella hella hella hella hella hella hella props yo!

What steps do you take when creating a sprite from scratch? Also, can you make a Basara sprite next?


#12

Well, I start by taking a low-res sprite.
Then I blow it up to 400%.
Then I generally make it about 50% transparent so I can better see what I’m doing.
I then draw outlines pixel by pixel in a new layer.
Then I shade it in using the lighting/shadows already on the original sprite.
Then I post it here, and wait for people to tell me how great they are.
Then I keep waiting…
Then I give up, sad.

And as for Basara, if I do another one antime soon, I will, but they take about 4-6 hours to do, and I don’t have a lot of free time at my computer these days. I only finished that last one up because I did promise it, and felt bad about not delivering.

…seriously.
