Hello, I'm just checking the topics, but as a thunder a great idea came to my mind, to redesign the Lifebar and then to make some Lifebar Portraits, for Single might be a la KOF XIV/2000 (but a Custom Style, not necessarily the 2000 Style), for the Simul and Turns, it might be the VS Screen Portrait (only the eyes and face, with name), that my idea....

And, what do you think about it?



Since some months and weeks ago I've planed to redesign the Lifebar with @City_Hunter: and me, so I think you guys you can choose on which Style do you like your favorite characters, so I feel the KOF 2000 Battle Portraits are fitting for this:



Here there are some Battle Portraits:

       (Remake from Tatsu Original)   

More to come...

Well, something like KOF XIV/2000 Hybrid, Green Bar with a Some Spiky Mask Style, like KOF '99 to fit the Portraits...

I'm all for adding KOF 2000 styled lifebar icons as well, especially since someone (Tatsu, I think it was?) made plenty of icons for many other characters in the style.

Hello. I'm watching this topic, but haven't yet shared anything in terms of feedback. I'm not sure yet what I'm really looking for, so I wanted to see more what others were looking for. A "metal" like border wouldn't be bad. I also would recommend a different kind of shading to avoid black-ish like shadow. Dark green to light green. Could also experiment with how the shading works (rounded vs top/bottom). Sorry, these are just scattered thoughts so far. Give me a bit more time. In the meantime, keep on showcasing ideas. :)

Hi, @swipergod:, I've re-done the concept, some metalish border, added KOF-ish Shadows into the "TIME" Word, an some other stuff added, like Player No. and the Beta font Design, hope you like it:

Based on mine, huh, @City_Hunter:? What a great surprise, but you've removed the "TIME" word, and we could think you to Portrait every character...

We could do a collaboration, me with the Portraits and you with the Lifebar, And not forgetting we've based one each other...

Just here thinking about how the Portraits may look like, but it's merely an Hybrid of XIV - 2000 Style (well, almost), but here it is the Progress of the Lifebar Concept:

To be honest, I really don't see the need to make entirely new lifebar portaits. I would if they were something unique that didn't have anything similar done before, but the layout right now looks like you could just put the KOF 2000 or 2002 lifebar icons in there and no one would argue with you.

Being honest, the Neo Dio portrait is very messy. It doesn't has a solid shading like all the other portraits does, and instead, the shading on his face is all weird and random. It just looks bad to look at.

I prefer 2000, but I'd say play to your strengths. Why not take one character and show off a few different styles and let people help point you to the style that is strongest for you. Try a trickier character like Elisabeth and see what you can pull off. :)

I'll be honest in here, MX, and it might sound rude, but I need to get that cleared out. It doesn't really feels like you're trying. A good portion of your attempts so far feel like you only intended to make the portraits slightly resemble the character you're spriting, rather than going all the way and polishing said portraits and making sure to look up reference to see if it fully matches the design of the 2002 portraits and the character you're making. That Elizabeth you made just barely resembles the design you were spriting, her hair is a complete mess, and her jaw is incredibly large and pointy.

To add to that, she's all outlined, for god knows what reason... oh wait, you're trying to make a "new" style. Let me just put it like this, buddy. This "new" style of yours isn't working. It's basically the same thing as the 2002 portraits, except it looks more unappealing. Like, seriously, compare these:



To what you're doing:



It's a serious visual downgrade, and you're doing it just because you want to make something "new" that looks about the same but worse. You want to create a new style? That's fine, that's how NEW things are made. But you should at least get a better grasp at spriting the normal KOF portraits if you want to understand what makes them work  and what makes the character designs look appealing to the eye to begin with, and you shouldn't use this project as an excuse for your new style experiments. If you're going to contribute to this project, then don't try to twist the direction it's going to.

TL;DR: Use reference, and forget the whole "new" style idea.

EDIT: Just found out that some remake of SVP Infinity has a lifebar portrait for Elizabeth. You might want to use that at least for reference:
