MarioKirby's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)

  1. SO, considering that the most recent post in my previous sprite topic is over 2 years old (2 years, where does the time even go?) and that many of the older images are broken, I've decided to revive my archive in a new topic. I have cleared this new archive topic through global moderator Eclipse, so shout-out to her for permission. She also wanted me to link the previous topic for historical purposes, so: https://forums.serenesforest.net/index.php?/topic/41248-the-royal-sprite-topic-of-myself/#comments For those who don't know me, and those who vaguely remember me, I am MarioKirby. I'm not an outspoken member, mostly just lurking around the forums, but I have been spriting on-and-off for many years - well over a decade now - and while I wouldn't consider myself the best artist, I have made a fairly large collection of sprites that i would like to share. I also want to push myself to start spriting more regularly again, so doing something like this should motivate me again. Alright, enough about me. Presenting what I've made. They won't be in any particular order, so the ages and quality may fluctuate. Two attempts at a self-imposed 100-character challenge. As you can see, I didn't get too far. An assortment of various upvamp/upscale attempts on existing sprite styles. Left to right: Zelda II, Link to the Past, a handful of NES characters, GameBoy Zelda titles, and Super Mario RPG (with an update to that following), plus a couple takes on a 2D Smash Bros. style A chibi artstyle I made that I've periodically added characters to. L to R: Female Villager (New Leaf/Mario Kart 8 design), Female Villager (City Folk/Smash Bros. design), human Broom Hatter, Inkling Girl (original Splatoon/Mario Kart 8 design), and Ribbon Some original Kirby enemy concepts. A wide variety of custom-styled pieces that I've made, some as "doodles", as I call them, some as ideas for small video game concepts. This is where a lot of the fluctuations that I mentioned earlier are, as some of these are pretty old, while others have been updated more recently; some have been updated on what I call "work files", big sprite canvases that I'll start ideas on before moving them to their own files. And, considering this is a Fire Emblem forum: Some mugshots and battle sprites. Again, some fluctuation here due to age. I've also made maps, but those will be posted at a later time if people are interested in seeing them. Also, something I want to do more of is posting those "work files" I mentioned earlier. There are a lot of ideas that I start in those that I'll work on here and there for a while, but I don't feel they have gotten to a point where I can upload them by themselves. So, here's a few to start with: https://imgur.com/kjWD2G5 https://imgur.com/SInmb79 https://imgur.com/4WVwiVn - Of my various custom-style pieces, this is probably the most "fleshed-out", in a manner of speaking. https://imgur.com/KeNXboQ - This one is kind of the main work file that I have. https://imgur.com/LFUuYu0 https://imgur.com/nHwmUgR https://imgur.com/qIc2WqW https://imgur.com/uaZhSfM Alright, I think that's everything of note over the past several years. Comments and criticisms are always welcome. Suggestions, too; I know I'm pretty limited in my personal creativity, so having some ideas to read over could help to stretch me.
  2. I second the F-Zero/Starfox crossover mentioned earlier and would like to add Metroid to that, as well. I would also like to see an FE fighter in the future, especially done by ArcSys, but only if it isn't just Fateswakening Featuring Marth and Lyn. Speaking of fighters, I would love to see more Nintendo-franchise-specific fighting games, like Mario or Kirby no I'm not biased, or even a Nintendo vs. Capcom, but those seem less likely to happen.
  3. I'll probably watch some of the Youtube VODs when I get the chance. What was the total amount raised this time?
  4. Impressed to see that BotW is already in an AGDQ and that they're doing something longer than "rush immediately to Ganon." Also nice to see more Fire Emblem and the LttP Randomizer.
  5. Not too terribly surprising, as Nintendo has shown off Directs in January the past few years, but nice to have confirmation that it's coming.
  6. For me, it's less hatred and more...irritation?, at how much attention they get. I give Awakening the benefit that it did what it had to in order to either salvage the sales of the series or send it off with bang. It also helps that I enjoyed playing the game - heck, it's probably my most-played game on the 3DS. I was also initially excited to play the Fates games, but that quickly fell off for me. That being said, I'm not really sure if it was the games themselves or just being burnt out at the time, but regardless, I haven't sat down and played them since, instead going back to an older title and playing that through from start to finish. My issue, then, is how much these two titles garner so much focus and attention in any media involving Fire Emblem. It's not because I hate them or think they're overrated, but rather that this amount of focus feels like there's an ignoring or eclipsing of the older titles, as if they don't exist or don't need to be acknowledged. Fortunately, there's been some effort in recent months to celebrate the entire series instead of a fraction of it. I also don't like the increased focus on fanservice and self-inserts and the baggage read: waifus that comes with it, but for a different reason than most: it's starting to eclipse the core gameplay of the series. Like, if someone didn't know better, then back when many people were griping about the localization of Fates, said individual could be forgiven for thinking the game was a visual novel. I also noticed some people throwing "elitism" around as a reason, which I don't doubt is some people's reason, but it runs both ways; I've seen a number of people, both here and elsewhere, that won't give the other games in the series the time of day or even outright trash them because they aren't Awakening/Fates.
  7. More Inklings. I tweaked the orange one a bit, then used that to make the green and Futaba variations.
  8. Thank you! And I can see what you mean with the nose. I have a habit of cluttering smaller sprites like that. That being said, here's a tweaked version that I made before seeing your post: And here's a companion piece The Inkling sprite is more a base for other ideas I have, so I want to make sure it looks correct before going ahead.
  9. So, I've been playing a decent amount of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe recently, and I really like the design of the female Villager. So I whipped this up real quick when I didn't have access to the internet.
  10. The game looks both fun and interesting. I like the pseudo-3D levels and the flipping perspective. Definitely on the radar for me.
  11. Pleasantly surprised with this E3. New Kirby game looks amazing with two of my favorite mechanics in the entire series returning, enjoying what's been shown of FE Warriors, incredibly hyped for Metroid Prime 4, glad to hear of a Metroid 2 remake (if only to rub it in people's faces after the past year's tantrums), and Super Mario Odyssey looks like it'll be fun.
  12. Thank you! And the new guy was my attempt at a kinda chibi style, plus I wanted to exaggerate some of the features to practice making a full animation rather than just the single sprite. Thank you as well! And I have done a few more sprites with that style. I actually really like that set in particular, as I (someday) want to try and use it for an actual game. The second style was my attempt at a style similar to the handheld Castlevania titles. Both the perspective and the designs were rather different to what I usually do, so I'm glad to hear that people like it.
  13. A little sprite I made that I want to use as a base to practice spriting animations.
  14. Quick questions involving Nintendo accounts. Are they the same thing as the Nintendo Network IDs or something completely different? Is there a way to merge the two together? These may have been answered somewhere earlier in the thread but whatever. For the record, I haven't made a Nintendo account yet, and I feel there's no point in making one if I can just use the network ID.
  15. Well, while we're on the subject of shrines: I'm down to the last few (I want to say 5?) shrines in the game, but I'm getting frustrated at finding them. Can anybody point me in the direction of a walkthrough or a map of all the shrine locations?
