Welcome to my humble portrait abode loaded with plenty of high quality portrait sets to help sex up your Mugen, making your customized selections look like something completely official in the process. There's something particularly awesome about having great, varied and official artwork that pops on your screenpack's select screen to go along with a favorite character of yours. The main purpose of this thread is to offer all of my older 1.0 portrait releases in one complete spot. While these portraits will indeed work for any version of Mugen, this thread covers all of my released content covering 1.0's engine since 1.0 allowed only for indexed, 256 color .png files.



A FEW FORMATTING TIPS AND NIFTY PHOTOSHOP SHORTCUTS

MY MOST RECENT RELEASE

1.0 Portrait Collection

I thought it was finally time to give 1.0 the sendoff it deserves. With all of the work I have been doing for the past two years, content was starting to pile up rather nicely. My original intentions were to continually release content for 1.0 in my indexed package standard. However, work got to be so overwhelming and time consuming, I first began to jump around from art style to art style just to stay a little sane and keep things exciting. Once that got tiring, I eventually stopped creating content all together (that dry spell lasted 8 months!!) and merely looking at indexed portraits became unnerving. I was very close to throwing the towel in for good; moderating and portrait work all together. Yes, I almost quit Mugen because it wasn't fun anymore. I wasn't happy about it, but I was on that fence and almost jumped off. :(

Fortunately, NoZ and Two4Teezee came around showcasing beta work for 1.1 material in the form of their sexy Screenpacks. If it weren't for them two coming around and pretty much saying "Look at what 32bit PNG files can do" I wouldn't have decided to move on to 1.1 portrait material. With the move to sexy PNG files that require 2/3rds less cleaning (There is still a lot of work to be done, but not as much comparatively), I thought it would be wise to share all of my 1.0 work wrapped up into one package. And there's a lot of content.

First off, you get 58 varied portraits showcasing lots of different art in the form of:

  • Batsu
  • Chelnov
  • Crome Dome
  • Chun Li/SF3TS
  • Death Star
  • Decapre
  • Donatello
  • Doom Guy
  • DragonClaw
  • ED 209
  • Fat Buu
  • Freeman/Garou
  • Freeza
  • Geki/SF1
  • Goku
  • Goku/Super Sayan
  • Grant/Garou
  • Ryu Hayabusa
  • He Man
  • Homer Simpson
  • Ivy Valentine
  • Jin Kazama
  • Joe/SF1
  • Ken Masters/SF3TS
  • Krang
  • Krusty the Clown
  • Lee/SF1
  • Leonardo
  • Link
  • Lion-O
  • Luigi
  • Mario
  • MasterTurtle/PNinja (A TMNT Edit that is my favorite)
  • Michelangelo
  • Mr.X/Tyrant 103
  • Neo
  • NudeMai (The only decent Nude Edit. And why not!?)
  • Omega Tom Hanks
  • Peter Griffin
  • Raphael
  • Rare Akuma
  • Retsu/SF1
  • RoboCop
  • Ronald McDonald
  • Rorschach
  • Ryu/SF3TS
  • Scorpion/MK9 Classic Costume
  • Sean/SF3TS
  • Shredder
  • Skeletor
  • Solid Snake
  • Spawn
  • Spydama (One of my favorite Joke Characters EVER)
  • Sub-Zero/MK9 Classic Costume
  • Terry Bogard/Garou
  • Vegeta
  • Vegeta/Super Sayan
  • Yoshimitsu

And of course, plenty of screenshots. ;D














But it doesn't stop there!! Along with everything you get above, I also intended to do full sets for all of Street Fighter II's releases showcasing official artwork that Capcom is known for. I nearly finished all of SF2 Revival's Artwork with the exception of E. Honda, Dhalsim and Zangief. So you get 14 portraits in Revival's sexy style.





I also intended to do a full SF2:HD set. Work for each of these added up to about 15 hours between cleaning up the main template and the finalized indexed image. These came out really nice. You get:

  • Akuma
  • Balrog
  • Bison
  • Sagat
  • Vega
  • Zangief

Here's a singular screenshot of Vega and Zangief. It's hard to believe that these are 256 colors!!


And you also get full portrait sets in the form of actual in-game rips from those awesome classics, Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 2 Turbo and Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo. To say that these are a treat is an understatement. Here's some singular shots in each style:

Here's Sagat and Balrog in SF2's style


Here's Ryu and Ken in SF2 Turbo's Style


Lastly, here we have Blanka and M.Bison in Super's Style


So with everything included, you get a massive 118 portraits to add to your 1.0 roster. And even though I use BrokenMugen as my standard, keep in mind that these will work for any screenpack that supports your standard portrait style. :2thumbsup:

You can snag them at Cybaster's Office in the Hosted Section.
**The file weighs in at 1.96 megabytes total**

I'd like to thank Cybaster for hosting me, as always, and NoZ along with Two4Teezee for getting me off of my lazy ass so that I can continually make Portrait Content for the long run. I ain't going anywhere soon now that 1.1 material is now a reality for me. This also marks my last indexed, 1.0 portrait release. Every future release will be in 32but, 1.1 PNG formatting.

As always, Constructive Criticism and Feedback are welcome!! I sincerely hope you guys get some good usage out of these varied portraits. Enjoy everyone!! :devilish:

If I change the scaling to what you said simply to have these portraits, would all my other ports be messed up?

Yes. For standard resolution offerings, you will skew how low resolution, or 120x140, portraits look. You could always just scale down the bigger ones I provided and see what happens.

How would I scale them down? I probably wouldn't notice any differences (you'd probably flip out over all the differences or something :mmhmm:).

LOL You are correct.

Just open up an image in photoshop and go to image/image size and cut the resolution in half.

However, 240x280 resolutions are that much better quality and clarity wise, hence the standard I follow. Also, each 240x280 portrait took a solid hour or two to thoroughly clean up. Sooooo.... cutting back the detail further would simply ruin the quality. :(

You got it Max. I've already got my eyes on what's next, and its gonna be a doozy. I seriously need a damned break though. I don't "play" Mugen. Unless if you consider Photoshop and a Mouse as my controller, then I play all of the time. With PIXELS!!  :woeh:

Is Gimp an acceptable substitute? I don't want to indirectly spend a good 500$ or so just for some sexy portraits.

@C.A.N. Infranview is a very small free and awesome application that can resize the portraits for you. It will even batch resize the ones you point it to in mere seconds. Give it a try.

Such a nice early Christmas gift for the community. I'm really hype and ready to put these epic ports to work and show off, of my mugen. Awesome release and thanks for such a phenomenal job. Your works will not be in vain, trust me on that tip. Now I can really hook up my mugen, even more in style. I love custom good stuff, so I can pimp out my mugen. Thanks again Sai, for all the hard work you put in man.
