These sprites were an experiment using a different process to resized SF3 sprites and reduce their palette to look closer to CvS sprites. No touch ups have been done to these. Original sprite rips by ZweiFuss.

your spoiler doesn't load to me on Opera and Firefox. Internet speed is not an issue here. I'd suggest uploading the gif somewhere like mediafire or dropbox.

edit: looks like direct link after quoting your post works: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451492018271682561/463424930449588224/CvS-Necro.gif

I like the result. Any chance for sharing how exactly it has been done? Maybe a link to your photoshop macro?

For Street Fighter III characters in CVS style some mugen authors use xscale= 0.83333, yscale= 0.96754 for [size] in constant file, and the result is surprisingly good. What's the scaling factor used here?

New palette example added to first post! (CvS King's palette)

Thanks K4thos. I'll try to give a rough idea of how it was done.

Two gifs using all of his sprites were made.

The First Gif:
-All of Necro's colors were reduced to only use 5 colors. The colors were reduced according to what would look most like CvS, not by choosing the amount of colors used in a dropdown menu.
-The gif was reduced in size using Bilinear.
-Scale was decide by comparing CvS Ryu sprites to SF3 Ryu sprites.
-Once resized, the colors were reduced once more the same way, to only use 5 colors.
 
The Second Gif:
- All section of Necro's original sprites were made solid colors. Pants solid purple, skin solid blue ect. (no shading)
-The gif was reduced in size using Nearest Neighbor.
-Scaled to the same size as the first gif.

Combined The Two:
-All of the sprites from the second gif are put above the layers of the first.
-Each new layer from the second gif is made visible on top of their matching sprite in the first gif.
-Each new layer's Opacity is set to 50%. This color separates the sprites.

That's a clever technique that can proportionate really impressive results, my friend! :D

Now I must see how it handles a hi-res fighter...

Thanks man. It should work on hi-res fighters too, as long as they don't have a tone of detail. A lot of detail would make the resized sprite pretty muddy.

I updated the first post. A CvS palette has been applied to show off the sprites better and Effie has been separated a little more.(she was sharing one color with Necro before.)

If anyone decides to use these, hit me up with some progress and I'll put together the remaining CvS animations. (Run, etc.)

So you hand picked the colors you want, right? But why only 5 colors for all the sprite and not for areas, like pants and so?

My guess is because Necro only used different shades of a few colors and they narrowed it down to five colors to use for the basic look. Other than Twelve, I figure he was the easiest to convert to pseudo CvS style because of it. Besides, this was probably a test to see if the process would work.

I tried it the way you're describing but found I liked the results a little more by doing it this way.
