MegaMan "Sprites"-Bosses of 2 by WaneBlade MegaMan "Sprites"-Bosses of 2 by WaneBlade
And once again I am one step ahead of that puzzle battle junk. Not going in any particular order with these guys, just a random shuffle. But seriously, MetalMan naturally has to come first, even if he does grab himself down there like that... His gears of glory/discs of doom/saws of slaughtering are TOPS. ...Though on his pixely head it looks more like a doctor's light. I think I fancy him more as a surgeon than a dentist that way.
I have to be honest that some of these guys seemed tricky to "depixelate" at first. BubbleMan is a pretty good example; you know how his 8-bit sprite barely resembles his official artwork? At first I was all like "screw it" and tried making the new sprite for him look more like his artwork self, but I couldn't get it to stick. Then I saw what this guy did here -> [link] and took his word for it. The key wasn't to add more detail within the proportional parameters, but to make the details that are already there more definable. ...I'm not sure if that jibber-jabber made sense, but whatever.

Ever since the beginning of the end of the 8-bit era, Capcom has made one attempt after another to give their mascot a new coat of paint, but for some reason, none of them could even come close to being as good as the original NES titles. It seems like you can't have a good Mega Man game without having a bunch of bug-eyed, big-headed, stubby-handed little people frolicking all over the place... and are actually able to outrun freaking bullets! ...with their BUTTS. It's so dorky and it completely defies the laws of physics, and yet that's what makes the series so awesome somehow. The better reason they went back to that style in 9 and 10. I would pretty much desribe it along the lines of dorkily awesome and awesomely dorky.
Anyways, I kind of got an idea for this thing after I saw some videos for Mega Man Universe. What they're essentially doing is basically sucking out all the "squareness" while retaining the 8-bit feel from the glory days. I'm kind of doing that here too, but I'm more leaned towards a full blown 2-D standpoint rather than 2.5-D. It's a style I like to call ∞-bit. It's like a version of 8-bit that shows about as much detail as a bunch of tiles could, but has a much smoother way of doing so by far.
Knock yourself out.


Disclaimer just to be safe: Characters belong to Capcom blah blah blah. That should be pretty obvious.

I never thought 8-Bit sprites would translate so well into a vector style!
Keep doing what you do; you're incredibly good at it :D

Woah DUDE, this is an honor! It's like, you know, with you being a popular pixel wizard and all. It's pretty cool getting some feedback from a guy like you of all people. Right on.

No Problem! I've really like the look of this stuff but cannot do it myself as PhotoShop does not want to work on my computer.

Anyways; I wish you good luck with the vector style sprites! I pressume you're doing the other 9 games aswell? If so then that would be awesome!

What program do you use to make these?

:iconwaneblade:
WaneBlade Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2011
It's done on Photoshop, though I can see how it looks more like something out of Illustrator. I would've used that program, except I never got around to getting the hang with it as much as with PS.

...Darn, not sure I can help you with that. It's been quite a while since my own PS has been installed, so I barely remember a thing.

Those are actually pretty cute, I didn't expect the concept to have been around for that long.
