SNK vs Tekken vs. Capcom’s Street Fighter vs. Marvel’s X-Men
September 21st, 2017 by PrimeOp
Well. I decided to make a Marvel vs. Capcom update for Tuesday, which went well until Tekken’s Heihachi Mishima decided to show up. So Wednesday’s update saw Tekken added to the crossover, with the X-Men fighting them off (and adding a new print to the shop). That was ruined by Gesse Howard lurking in the shadows at the end of that news post, and the only way to save it is to finally put some new (and long-overdue) SNK-related content on the site.
– SNK: new CvS-ish sprites of Andy Bogard and Blue Mary from Fatal Fury, Robert Garcia from the Art of Fighting (all three are in their KoF 2000 gear) and Fio Germi from Metal Slug
– Tekken: Heihachi gets a KoF-style sprite. Believe it or not, it’s the first KoF-style sprite I’ve ever made from scratch, and I don’t think it’ll be the last.
– Final Fight: Poison (Final Fight CD outfit)
– Portraits: SFA3-style Geese Howard
All of these things have been added to the main GFX Generator, where they can be used to make fake screenshots like the ones at the top of this news post.
You know what, I’m tired of this, even more than anyone who’s been following this since Tuesday. Every update this week, just when I figure I’m done with this Vs. Crossover theme, a “HERE COMES A NEW CROSSOVER” screenshot pops up and some new series or company bum rushes the show and I’ve got to do another update. Guess what? Tomorrow is the last-damn-day and if any of you lurking series out there don’t jump in now, you’re chicken pluck outta luck. I know you’re out there, so just co – –
See? That’s what I thought. Well, what game or company is it this time?
By the way, those all-new (but only Colossus is giant-sized) X-Men sprites come from a print that makes its debut today!
**cue funky Konami X-Men music**
This print is guaranteed to increase the mutant population of your wall, but not to ward off masters of magnet. You’ve gotta do that on your own! It’s available now from the ScrollBoss shop page!
Well, that’s it for this theme. I’m gonna go get some re – –
So… another update? Okay. Come back tomorrow if you want to see how ridiculous this crossover gets!
Marvel vs. Capcom 2017
September 19th, 2017 by PrimeOp
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite hits consoles and computers today, so I figured I’d pay tribute to the whole series, seeing as how the original game is one of the main things to get me into spriting fighting-scale sprites. This update features remakes of characters from the entire series!
Custom Sprites Marvel: Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers, War Machine, Hawkeye, and Deadpool Capcom: Morrigan, Meichelle Heart Mega Man: X (Mega Man X)
Street Fighter 30th anniversary
August 30th, 2017 by PrimeOp
Happy 30th anniversary to the original Street Fighter game
New sprites of Street Fighter 1’s Geki (an often-requested sprite) and SSF4’s Juri (a few people asked for her, too) help to kick off the new Street Fighter Custom Sprites page. There isn’t a lot there yet, but I figured today would be a great day to set up the gallery. Of course, they’re also in the main image generator that I used to make the graphic at the top of the post.
No promises, but I might make a few more Street Fighter sprites to add to this update, even after the anniversary day is over.
edit (2017-09-01): Now that I’ve gotten some rest, here comes a new challenger sprite:
Always wanted to do a tribute to that Super Street Fighter II intro and this seems like a good time to do it!
I would’ve had more done, but I spent most of my free time yesterday working on one of the dozens of sprite video ideas I’ve had in my head for almost as long as I’ve had this site. I just decided it was time to stop doing the bit-by-bit work on it while chasing themes and anniversaries. Oddly enough, there will be a lot of Street Fighters in it. Here’s a sneak peek:
100 years of Jack Kirby
August 28th, 2017 by PrimeOp
Today would’ve been the 100th birthday of the late, great King of Comics, Jack Kirby, and this update is filled with characters that he co-created (alongside Joe Simon or Stan Lee) or created himself. I’ve based sprites on his poses over the years because he was able to breathe a fully dynamic sense of life into his characters that they almost seemed to move on the page. In a Jack Kirby comic, every run was a breakneck dash, every punch was a haymaker and even the taunts seemed dangerous. He turned every attribute up to ten (or beyond) in the same way that fighting game sprite artists did years later. We comic fans owe him a lot and this update is in his honor. With this being the 100th birthday, I felt that I had to do more than usual, so I hope you enjoy this tribute to his work.
– Marvel: Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, the Thing, Thor, Ant-Man, the Wasp (new outfits & fixes for the 2016 sprite), the Silver Surfer, Medusa, M.O.D.O.K.
– DC: Orion, Big Barda, Darkseid, Granny Goodness
All these sprites, along with some new mini-logos, have been added to the main GFX image Generator, where I made the fake screenshots at the top of this post. I also completely remade all the Marvel face portraits for the Mego card tribute in the main image generator, even the characters who already had Capcom sprites.
edit: after a bit of rest, I’ve added the mini-logos to their galleries. Marvel gets Ant-Man, Medusa, MODOK and two for the Silver Surfer. DC gets Big Barda, Granny Goodness, Orion, and OMAC.
Capcom's Marvel Super Heroes fighting game is very, very loosely based on this story. Thanos' stage comes directly from a fight scene in this book.
