Hi, I'm Thedge McClure. You may remember me from such characters like KOF E. Honda, KOF Sean, and my current project KOF Alex.
Recently the company that I'm working for decided to cut some heads, mine included, so, I have bills to pay and a lot of free time starting january 10.

What am I capable of?
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

What do I offer?
A full KOF sprite set of any character you want.

What is a full KOF sprite set?
Basically these animations:
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

Price?
400 $us for edits.
This is changing some KOF chatacter's outfit to resemble some other character or simply change the character's outfit, think of Sean or Marco Rodriguez.
500 $us for a convertion.
Get a character from another sprite style and turn it into a KOF sprite set, see E. Honda and Alex for examples.
1000 $us for a scratch sprite set.
I've never done a full sprite set from scratch, but I've done a lot of animations from scratch, but this will be required if you want some character that has no sprite set available.

I may be pricey for this kinda stuff, I know.

Time to deliver?
Four or five months.
If I'm lucky enough to get a new job this may increase, but will finish it anyway.

Character?
That's up to the ones who put the money, I rather convert characters I'm familiar with, but, I'm not the one deciding.

How many of these will I take?
Two at a time, this way I wont get tired of drawing the same character over and over.

Payment method?
Money Gram, Western Union or More transfers, Paypal proved to be very problematic in this country.

Wow, that sucks man. What a great belated Christmas gift.

Well, you're pretty much the only KOF Master Spriter™ on the market, that's ought to be a profitable niche. You'd do well to show some Honda/Sean/Marco/Lien anims on the first post for the folks that are not familiar with your work.

Goodbye Trump comic.

As Cyan Paul suggested, I added proof that I do not suck balls at spriting in this style.

Nope, lack of time because of job/life/other projects, but the first one's not an issue anymore. :P

Again, not a paid commission character, not the subject of the thread at hand. Please cut it with the previous unfinished WIPs talk, this is about Thedge setting up shop for a paid gig.

taking a wild guess there as I have been through similar situations:
rather, to put it in simpler terms, any non.paid wip is on undefinite hold to give more priority to the paid comissions as bringing food to the table takes higher priority. they will only be discussed in case people wants to pay so they get finished sooner, becasue that needs negotiation (as an example maybe someone want sto pay so lien/someone else whom alrayd ahs progress gets finished ).

if some business go right I might be comissioning something for february, consider the slot open but I will keep my eyes on this.

I'm sorry for your job.

But instead asking a price to one person for one char, why don't try a crowdfunding with many persons who wan"t the same char (with a vote for exemple).

I am sure a lot of people want a Zanguief, a Dudley or a Makoto for his KOF game. But personaly, I can't paid 400 or 500 $.

Its a good idea since 400 or 500 is expensive for me too.

the crownfunding idea could work...

at the same time maybe doing small comissions can help you out, like doing some sprite edits for animations that doesn't exist in the character

and question, the prices include coding or that's a separate thing?

Man that sucks about your job, bunch of A-holes!

Aye the prices are very reasonable concidering your skill, but the simple fact remains that not a lot of users here are able/willing to pay those kind of amounts, I would also suggest the crowd-funding. Perhaps make a poll for which characters you would want to sprite yourself, then after that, make another poll to see how much people would want to pitch in with (it'd better be the same amount (or more) of people that voted on the winner of the previous poll).
People pitching in with 50 or 100 dollars is I think reasonable, 400/500 less so.

I agree Zangief is a possibly popular choice. Besides Blanka, I think he is the only one out of the original 8 World Warriors that doesn't have a KOF sprite set (if we include your own KOF E.Honda).
I don't know if there is a KOF SF fullgame but if all char sprite sets are available, people might want it ;)

Good luck, Thedge!

But Balthy, KOF Blanka was in fact made

I'd love to see Zangief for sure, I remember eFex even made a very good sprite of Zangief in KOF style, which could be used for reference.

Yeah, that sounds pretty reasonable to me, IMO.

Two things:
1. Wasn't there a decent looking KoF Blanka already made by 119way? Nevermind, MotorRoach beat me to it LMAO. :D
2. I'm all in for a KoF Zangief. Would make my life easier converting him to CvS. :laugh:

You mean this one?

Yeah, only Zangief is missing from the bunch.

Sorry to hear about your job, Thedge. Really saddening. Good luck, man. :)
