Nothing too interesting... just wanted to see what both of these could potentially look like so I figured I'd edit them myself...

MvC3 Wolverine


MvC1/2 Non-"Iron Man swapped" War Machine based on the in-game artwork (that actually WAS war-machine).


MvC3 stance for 2D Iron Man (old stance visible next to it):


These are not projects, just sheer curiosity on my part. I'm posting them in case you find them interesting or something :P

You're welcome to give me some crits if you want (I always welcome feedback) but again, nothing tangible is going to come out of this anyway (other than self-improvement on my end, maybe :P)

If you have suggestions for any sprites that can be updated/fixed, let me know... these are fun to do.

War Machine edit actually looks much nicer than the original. :)
It's such a shame that Capcom got lazy and made him just a color swap of Iron Man with slightly modified moves. A new design would have looked better for him IMO. :P

But yea, nice work. :)

The funny thing is that all the portraits and artwork WERE changed... it's only the sprites they left untouched... so the portraits didn't actually match the sprites they were representing, which actually makes it worse in a way :P

My understanding is that they wanted to actually put Iron Man in the original MvC since he's the title character of the comic book, but Activision had exclusive rights to the license during the time between MSH and MvC2. It was Marvel's idea to use War Machine instead as the closest replacement Capcom could use for Iron Man.

My War Machine edit is supposed to address exactly that problem... I didn't just pick ANY War Machine design... I copied the one from the portraits and artwork in both of the games in which he appeared.

Hmm... That's an interesting story. While that may be the case, a color swap of Iron Man and labeling it War Machine was still pretty lazy. Yeah, it may have taken a bit longer to add the extra details to him, but the core basis was still there with the Iron Man sprites. That does look really good. Nice job.

graphicus I think this is the same idea , I know  is more like iron man but have his differences

That's pretty awesome!

Again, mine are all supposed to be edits based on the official games/artwork. I don't usually do custom changes. Think something along the lines of "What if CAPCOM had had the time to edit the War Machine sprites?" or "What if MvC3 was still 2D?". Pretty much that.

war machine ( *__*) gooooooooooooood <3

Haha, glad you like it :D

You do a full sprite sheet of that War Machine and I'll let you shit on my chest.

Okay not really but it would be pretty awesome and somebody would inevitably want to code it.
No, YOU move.

Current WIP:


This is the conversation that went through in my head:

- What would someone need if they wanted to make an MvC3 Iron Man in MUGEN?
- Resprite every frame in his 2D sheet to match the new armor?
- Hell no! He has the exact same moveset, just a different armor!
- Ok, well... his stance is different. He's no longer hunching.
- Wouldn't it be easier to just sprite that stance in his old armor then?
- Well, sure... you lazy #$@*!.
- What was that?
- Nothing! Don't forget to sprite his ultra move too. That's also new.
- Yeah... not happening. It's a stupid ultra move... Why is the beam from his chest stronger than his Proton Cannon? I mean, if that's the case... why the #$@* does he even have a Proton Cannon then?
- You suck.
- #$@* you too, buddy.

So, after I took my medication and stopped hearing voices in my head, I decided to just do an MvC3 stance using his 2D design. Some of the proportions are off (left shoulder, mostly), but I plan to fix those during the coloring process.

All done!



It says "Edited...", but technically I drew everything from scratch except the head and looked at other sprites to ensure that the shading looked legit.

Process: I took a screenshot of MvC3, then resized it, streched it horizontally (this Iron Man is a bit chubbier than the sleek MvC3 one) then drew over it. I had to make the arms more muscular and longer to match the 2D sprites.

EDIT: Love you too, buddy! :D
Sorry that I haven´t made much progress with your request :P

Dont worry it's fine! There's no rush for the animation. That Iron Man sprite looks really official. Nice work!
