Looks beautiful! If you're basing him on Megaman's sprites, tho, shouldn't he have black outlines and shouldn't the leg/arm in the background be slightly darker than the one in the foreground? I noticed his legs have a midtone color, too, but his torso doesn't (Megaman doesn't have a midtone color either, unless you count the slightly darker color for the background limbs).

None of these are criticisms, just observations. Like I said before, the sprite looks beautiful. I'm just curious about your thought process.

@Genosan742: Thank you, bro! :)

@Graphicus: But... it doesn't have outlines? lol

I mean, yeah, perhaps because of the 2nd outline tone, I ended up making it sorta like a mid-point between Mega Man and the other MvC fighters. But he looks quite fine this way too, I guess.

About the legs shading - that's the result of me being reluctant of changing too much from the references I've got. And also, I thought maybe the giant hand that's right in from of his leg would actually help even out the lighting difference between them? Although yeah, the more I look into that I see it doesn't really need to be a factor, within the CPS2 style of shading.


But yo, what about this one?

That definitely matches the way Megaman is shaded more closely, yeah. The white for his left hand should be the same gray as his background foot, though, since both of them are in the background (unlike his right foot, which is in the foreground).

Again, all of this is if you want to follow Megaman's example 100%. If you want to do something halfway between Megaman and the rest of the CPS2 characters, that's fine too! Don't feel like you have to change it, I just wanted to know your thought process.

Understood! :hyo:

And yeah, the left hand definitely sticks out more if only the legs get a change on the shading style. So I went ahead and updated it as well; along with a slight change on the palette contrast to accomodate everything.

Thank you so much for the feedback! This was a fun exercise overall. (1st time I try to truly emulate the CPS2 style from the ground up)

I've made a new stance for Sir Ghostler's Shin Akuma.

Alpha Chun-Li CVS stance sprite. (credits to Ehynd, Warusaki3, and Capcom. The right side is the original stance I used as a helper on shading in Alpha style)

Those who love Chun-Li's CvS stance would love this attempt.
