Now that all Warzard characters have been properly made for Mugen, onto the next fantasy game.  Been working on the Amazon character.  She has two modes.  Axe-on and Axe-off.  Two modes like Gen, but actually fun to play as.  :P

1) Axe-on is a fighter style gameplay.  Big swinging axes, big attacks. projectiles, etc.  However, less agile for combos. 

2) Axe-off (Ass-on :P) is a quick grapper style gameplay.  She can bounce you off walls and the ground with more attacks and throws.  Pretty dangerous to be close to.  She's also incredibly good at zoning with her roll attack distances increased and her fast dive kicks.  One more fun fact, she has more lengthy taunts than Shao Kahn thanks to her narration voice.  Currently, 17 and counting.  ;)

Also, as a side note, I've never fully removed transparencies nor black background from her sprites in rpcs3.  I had to manually edit them out of her face and hair or put back in black pixels across her gloves, feather, or boots.  Oy vey.

Editing sprites for her has been a pain in the ass.  She doesn't have very many to begin with.  The sprites are like oil paintings... every pixel has multitudes of colors in them.  I'm having to edit the sprites with the cloning tool in Photoshop and actually using brushes with opacity instead of pencil as we're used to with sprites.  Some fun times honing my photoshop skills.  She currently is missing blocking without weapons and perhaps some better gethit anims.  The rest, I think I improvised pretty well.

Something else kind of fun, the source effects were sometimes still frames.  Had to manipulate them usung angle and transparency to give them the appearance of animating like the source game. 

Here are 2 preview videos.  As usual, she is made for Mugen 1.1 only.  This unfortunately has to be the case being that angle for explod only exists for Mugen 1.1.

I'm really looking forward to this release.

Dragon's Crown is one of my favorite games of all time, and the Amazon was the character class I used. Back when I wanted to make my own characters I would've tried my hand at making Gwendolyn (Odin Sphere) but the in-game sprites are separate pieces and it would be extremely difficult and tedious to put them together.

very nice progress, the fact that you have to edit all those sprites, must have taken you hours upon hours so mad respect man.

Making Vanillaware characters into mugen is no small feat. You are a wizard!

Hence my comment about trying to make an Odin Sphere character.

It would be no small feat to have them color-separated either :c

Thanks for the palettes!

Just so there aren't duplicates, here are the ones I've created so far.
