That's how I feel when I decide to recode a existent version of certain chars into my VS Style Debuts template.
Sometimes you even want to give up because you can possibly fucks up a character which was already maded well and more accurately to source games by another coder. [Even if the intent of recoding it's more for a experimental changes and etcetera]
I'm kinda of sad about that cancellation(Vector is one of the characters I would love to code alongside other Sonic characters), but it's his decision after all, and I don't blame him for that(And after a lot of works he did, and i'm talking this being one of his beta testers, he really deserves some rest).
(And I'm sure someday someone can try to sprite him completely, there's always two sprites to work on so...There's nothing to be worried about that.. I just wouldn't sprite because i'm honestly HORRIBLE at spriting, just like i'm horrible at drawings lol)
