Game Sprites

Recommended Posts

I finally got around to bringing these into my life.

To celebrate these exciting times, I brought the bloke from Excitebike into the real world.

Not as complex as the others in the thread, but I think he's cute.

Tails looks fantastic :P

I'm thinking of taking my creations apart to make something new, but I'm not sure what yet. If only the Yoshi's Island stuff didn't use so much black...

I wanna use a new game for reference...

I keep using Nintendo's stuff (for obvious reasons), the rainbow island stuff looks lush.

Anyone got a sugestion for another bright and cheery game that I could use the sprites from?

Do Wonderboy!

It was going to be taller than that with a beanstalk instead of the mushroom or something, but it's pretty wobbly as it is.

[edit] I've just noticed theres a bit missing on Mario. Woops.

These things are too addictive to be healthy.

I don't have enough blue to make Sonic, which is a bit of a bugger.

Cor! That's excellent.

Which game is that sprite from, though? It looks more modern than the megadrive games.

He's from Sonic Advance. The MD sprites are too big for these things, really.

He's been updated a bit since then aswell. I think I preferred his old pose though.

:wacko:

I'm so going to have to try and not buy these for the sake of my bank account... but I really want a flying Tails :)

Wow, you lot are fucking brilliant.

I'm completely hopeless at drawing and realising scale etc, would I struggle with these things? Or is it a case of getting a blown up sprite and just copying every block one at a time?

For the ones in this thread (game sprites), it's purely copying. Just open a screenshot/sprite in Paint/Photoshop and zoom in until you can see each block clearly.

You can also convert photos and such easily with the 'Digital Stained Glass thingy on the official site.

OH GAWD I've gotta get me some of these pixelblocks.

More money wasted. So cool though! I'm turning into a right bachelor freak, robots last week, pixels this week...

I got the Dream Set from TK Maxx for £9.99 the other week. They only had one box of that and one of the Vision Set (£7.99) so you'll probably be lucky if you can find them at your nearest store. :unsure:

I might have to run down today and check on the off chance it's open. I need more black!

That's brilliant. The dolls, too; where did you get them?

The only one i've done recently is Luigi (click here)

Also, I think i'll be off to TK Maxx tomorrow.

The kodama were a present, but I think they came from ebay. Luigi's great! I wish I had that many colours...I'm stuck with only one shade of green :unsure:

Cheers.

Yea, the lack of colours is annoying; especially as even buying the expensive sets, you get a strange mix of colours - loads of hideous bright green, but very little black, for example.

This first one is a slightly older one that I never got around to posting:

I love this one, but it's a bit too big to be practical:

And thanks to T.K. Maxx, I can now make these! Took nearly 600 black, but I think they're worth it:
