Gladiacloud here.

Have you missed me? :)

You should know that I have not been inactive during these months. In February, after Lou's release, I simply decided to do some private mugen works, for fun, before working on the my new character, which today I decided to release with great satisfaction.

After so much time and hard work and, above all, having had some creative blocks and despite the lack of respect I received, I can finally release a sonic character that I wanted since I discovered the Mugen, around 2002/2003.

VECTOR THE CROCODILE!

Yes, I know, it is my habit to post the screenshots immediately after the announcement of the character, but today I will make a small exception to tell you how my character originated.

It all started simply from this Mugenhunter's screenshot I found on Google Images several months ago:

https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/mugenhunter/images/9/9d/FFEndChaotix.png/revision/latest?cb=20180619020648

I was postponing Vector for many years now, and this screenshot had what I needed to get started: the source for an initial sprite.



However, due to the non-human physiognomy of Vector (it's a crocodile!), making this first sprite took me a lot of time. But there was also another problem: it was too much small. And so I scrap this sprite and recreated it from scratch using as base a resized version of a Vector custom sprite that I found on Spriters Resource, hoping to create it with the same method as Cream.



Also in this case, too much time spent drawing it because of the physiognomy ... and also for too many details. I then had to resort to the good old "Charizard method": Xnalara screenshots and tracing.



I was almost close. And to my help came my friend MotorRoach, who gave a nice final touch.



In addition to Xnalara, I also had to use the graphics tablet to make the complete spritesheet. And, in the end, the result is what you see in the screenshots below:

Well, I inform you that this is the last character I will release ... for now. After a lot of work, I think I deserve a little vacation, don't you? ;P

Have fun with Vector!

I knew you would release him. After all, I had seen how much trouble you had just trying to get sprites in order since you had only 3d as a reference. To see you finally going and release Vector, brings a smile to my face. We all had to be patient because it did seem like you had given up on him, I had too since it did seem like you was burning out a bit. Yeah definitely going to play with him as soon as I can.

I’m glad you released him. I am impressed. Vector is such a good character to play as.
Treat others how you want to be treated.

  • I do feedback on detail and aesthetics.

Some quick feedback on him:

-Short Jump doesn't have a jump sound effect, which his double short jump does (The volume of the jump also sounds inconsistent).
-Crouching WA and MA can miss on certain opponents with smaller hitboxes.
-Bubblegum Apocalypse's damage feels weak for a super move (Thought the move doesn't knock the opponent down, but I realized the level 3 version does and is probably intentional).
-Hammer Down has a weak hit sound instead of a strong one (Makes the move sound weak and feels off when doing the EX version).
-The strong ground shockwave effect of the Hammer Down feels misaligned (It's too much on the bottom on both versions).

That's all for now.

This is probably the most sick Vector you have ever created!
Nice job!
Give Kula a big hug!

If you have a chance can you create classic sonic and a better modern sonic in your style?

 I would actually be glad to code Sonic for Gladia if that ever happened. Vector's sprites are great, but the gameplay is a little lacking, so, I feel like I've always could lend the guy a hand at some point.
