Title: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: StormEX on July 03, 2012, 09:35:27 PM

Finally Naruto characters! Such there are only small and large are disproportionate or only small resized.
I'm anxious to see these characters! Congratulations!

Most likely no. Jin Kazama will most likely have Pots Style Gameplay. As most of the anime characters will have there own style. :)

I fucking hate chibi characters with a deep, dark passion! ALL the characters will be in full scale.

Please Make a luffy sprited by Tsao-ri and you will be my god hahaha :D
I wouldn't mind doing it, if Tsao-ri Didn't mind spriting him. If so, I'll add him to the list. But I like to focus on one project at a time. :)

For me Jin should have his gameplay from the Tekken series, with each button assigned for left punch, right punch, left kick, right kick, something like Hwoarang by Silver.

I'm glad to see a better Edward Elric is soon to be in the works, and that someone is finally putting CVSNB's Sean sprites to good use.
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects!

About Sean.. I had started on him a long time ago, but my pc got stolen at the time, so I lost all my data. ¬_¬

About the sprites Tsao-ri will create/have created, will they be open-source?

Yep frommwhat I've last checked. Everything in the StormEX characters are open source :)

As nice as POTS' FX is nice, I'd go for something more original.
You have original sprites, try to use something different than what everybody uses for Super BG. :)

I happy you are going to use the sprites I have commissioned!!

What's your plan for Gouken? PotS stile would be super awesome!
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects!
Post by: StormEX on July 18, 2012, 08:55:46 PM
That's the style I'm using on most of regular characters. The anime characters will have my own stormEX style, as usual. :)

Cool, cann't wait to see Gouken!

Title: Re: StormEX: Projects!
Post by: StormEX on September 02, 2012, 01:17:06 AM
Natsu Dragneel's Moveset:


Specials:
- Fire Dragon's Claw (火竜の鉤爪 Karyū no Kagitsume): Natsu ignites his feet with a very large flame to increase the power of his kicks. He can also use the strong ensuing flames to jet-propel him in any direction he wishes.

- Fire Dragon's Iron Fist (火竜の鉄拳 Karyū no Tekken): Natsu engulfs his fist in large flames and punches his opponent which makes his opponent fly away.

- Fire Dragon's Wing Attack (火竜の翼撃 Karyū no Yokugeki): Natsu takes hold of his opponent and ignites his arms and hands on fire, in the form of dragon wings as support, to throw them far away while burning them.

- Fire Dragon's Brilliant Flame (火竜の煌炎 Karyū no Kōen): Natsu creates fire on both hands, and brings them together, creating a giant explosion that destroys everything around him. In the anime, he ignites both of his hands and combines the flame, but instead of creating a giant explosion, he throws a very large fireball at his enemy, blowing them away.

- Fire Dragon's Flame Elbow (火竜の炎肘 Karyū no Enchū): After Natsu ignites the tip of his elbow, he uses that flame to strengthen his fist, and rocket the opponent high in the air.

Supers:
- Fire Dragon's Roar (火竜の咆哮 Karyū no Hōkō): Natsu breathes a long line of fire that becomes a large fireball, which burns his opponent.

- Fire Dragon's Sword Horn (火竜の剣角 Karyū no Kenkaku): Natsu ignites his entire body on fire in order to ram into his opponent at full speed, then launch them high into the air with his large horn of fire.

- Fire Dragon's Crushing Fang (火竜の砕牙 Karyū no Saiga): With his hand ignited with a large flame, Natsu gouges his hand into his enemy and quickly swipes his enemy away from his sight

- Crimson Lotus: Fire Dragon's Fist (紅蓮・火竜拳 Guren Karyū Ken): Lighting his hands on fire, Natsu rapidly punches his opponent. Each punch causes a fiery explosion.

- Crimson Lotus: Exploding Flame Blade (紅蓮・爆炎刃 Guren Bakuenjin): After a series of destructive attacks, Natsu finishes with a torrent of blade-shaped flames that strikes the enemy in a spiral formation. Every time the enemy is hit with a blade, it explodes and burns the enemy. Described as the ultimate Dragon Slayer technique, this attack is so powerful and destructive that it has been shown to smash through any opponent Defenses.

- Hidden Fire Form - Crimson Lotus: Phoenix Blade
("不知火型" - 紅蓮・鳳凰剣 "Shiranui Gata" : Guren Hōō Ken): Natsu ignites his entire body with the power of the Flame of Rebuke. He then charges towards the enemy and delivers a devastating punch that blows up the enemy, then proceeds to headbutt him. This is also described as The Ultimate Dragon Slayer Technique and the Dragon Slayer's Hidden Art, Sea Fire Style.

Tsao-ri you need to empty your inbox man. Its full again :)

In Reply to this:
(http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/248/9/2/natsu_dragneel_by_zahoriglez-d5dqdul.png)

I respond with this:
I think That's a Fantastic sprite! I only have These issues:

- His abs look they look like they're sagging down? you should move his six pack, & his chest up a bit.
- Some parts of his vest needs to be seen more, on both sides, cause it almost looks too small for him. just try to give him it more breathing room, cause its pressed up on his chest.
- His arm that has the symbol on it looks to big on the upper arm, while the wrest looks too small? Balance is the key. ;)
- The Scarf should also have some lines on it to look more like a fabric. It looks like silk right now, but thats a miner thing. ;P

Besides just a couple of miner issues, You've got my attention completely! I can't wait to start working on him! :)

the arm sleeve isn't necessary unless you wanna do that style of him. But personally I like the old outfit better anyway. And I just gave an example about the scarf as well. I know you can do much better then I can. I'm a bit rusty on my spriting an animations. lol ^_^

solid natsu =)
Thanks! But All the sprite credit go's to tsao-ri. Without him our characters would be a great as they are now. and will be. :)

Post by: StormEX on September 06, 2012, 12:11:57 AM
I couldn't agree more. :)

By the way:
Try to aim for about 8 (Or more) frames for his standing animation. Plus blinking and grinning as well. I want his approach to be sorta cocky.  :)

And the first one's much better! About the 2nd one. the only issue I have about this is the when he turns around In gameplay, his sleeve will be swopped to his other arm, so I thought it would look  kinda odd. But I can fix that easy with simple coding, as long as you don't mind making making the sprites twice. So his arm sleeve can stay on its correct side. :)

Title: Re: StormEX: Projects!
Post by: StormEX on September 09, 2012, 10:46:08 PM
I'm making Natsu Dragneel, not the natsu from rival school. :P

Cool, I still want to do it but i was thinking now in another style, GemPocketFighter, (I know, shit, i change of styles everytime), but believe me it is way more original, because if i do it MVC I could cheat and use MVC Megaman recolored, and thats lame.

Im trying to be way more original, and i have been doing some edits using eFeX' bases, pretty good.

In fact i liked this style because it is creative, everybody can give their ideas, for the bodycharge moves (when they change clothes and attack). Also it is to show our support to eFeX, since it is the style he has used more, if you could i would like that you donate him too in the future.

Also you may be wondering why i want to commission CVSNB, i have another project on the run too, not a char.

Ohh yeah and Frieza just needs a few moves, the gethits & animated intros.

About the payment lets not worry about it now.

(http://i.imgur.com/yblL6.png)
I Don't mind what style you choose in the end, as long as its not Chibi. And I'm not familiar with eFeXs? mind showing off a bit? :)
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects!
Post by: AlexSin on September 09, 2012, 10:49:01 PM
Voted for "Other", but since Gouken is winning this poll...
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects!
Post by: StormEX on September 09, 2012, 10:59:24 PM
hmmmm >_>

The problem I have with chibi is that not everyone like it, plus I got a thing for characters that aren't standard size. I don't know if I'm down for that style. Steamboy's seemed like the best way to go.

I voted "Other" as in Mugen from Samurai Champloo which has been put off for far too long.
I'm sure someone else will win, though. Which is perfectly fine with me.

Those Natsu sprites are looking sexy.

What made you decide to make Natsu?

Personally when I saw the anime itself (Fairy Tail) I enjoyed the fact that natsu (Being the main character of the show, like ichigo, goku, ect) wasn't the strongest character on it. He's very well balanced in his fighting style, plus I really like his personality all together. I for one; don't really like it when a main character of a show HAS to be the strongest. Its boring an played out. So natsu felt new to me, like a breath of fresh air. Plus I've gotta shit load of emails asking if he could be done, so I decided to give his a shot in Mugen! ;)

Don't be surprised if you get a shit load of emails asking to make Mugen from Samurai Champloo. ._.
I know what you mean, but all Shonen Jumps usually end up going in the route of the main character being the strongest at some point in the story. In the latest chapters, Natsu is....let's just say Erza, the supposedly strongest, would get her ass kicked now. Only problem is that Hiro Mashima has this obsession with making Erza invincible so it would probably end up with Natsu losing regardless of how much stronger he is now.
One of the main reasons why I hate Erza. So over-hyped. If you make her, I will NOT support you.

Anyways, the right foot looks unnatural because of the way his leg bends in that animation. I might be overseeing things.

great work here :)

In the turning sprite he has two wrist bands, while in the stance just one.

Post by: StormEX on September 22, 2012, 02:54:13 AM
So I was just browsing the internet (Not for porn) when I came across this move idea from duck king. ^_^

(http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c257/8slan8/duckKing.gif)
Natsu did something similar to this in the anime, but both his feet were on fire and you combo'd it with "karyu no tekken" (Dragon Punch)! This isn't something we would be doing now, but later in the future when we've got the basics out the way. :)
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects! (Natsu Dragneel)
Post by: Tsao-ri on September 22, 2012, 06:06:11 PM
no prob here dude !!!
looks easy to me
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects! (Natsu Dragneel)
Post by: StormEX on September 22, 2012, 09:13:23 PM
Great! but again: lets wrap up on the basics first :)

I also Had an idea to give him three finishers to selects, before the match starts!

- Crimson Lotus: Phoenix Blade
(http://th01.deviantart.net/fs71/150/i/2012/016/b/a/natsu_gif_by_kuro_38-d4mk0wr.png)
Natsu ignites his entire body with the power of the Flame of Rebuke. He then charges towards the enemy and delivers a devastating punch that blows up the enemy, then proceeds to headbutt him. This is also described as The Ultimate Dragon Slayer Technique and the Dragon Slayer's Hidden Art, Sea Fire Style.

- Dragon God's Brilliant Flame
(http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120229175342/fairytail/images/4/4f/Dragon_God%27s_Brilliant_Flame.gif)
The same as the Fire Dragon's Brilliant Flame, but on a much larger scale. Natsu summons flames on both fists just like the original technique, but combines Fire Dragon's flames on his right hand with Fire God flames on his left hand. The moment he brings them together, he creates a giant explosion powerful enough to destroy the surrounding area and blow the enemy a major distance away.

- Lightning Flame Dragon Mode
(http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120219112123/fairytail/images/thumb/8/83/Natsu_With_Lightning_Absorbed_Anime.jpg/200px-Natsu_With_Lightning_Absorbed_Anime.jpg)
Natsu gained the ability to use his Fire Dragon Slayer Magic enhanced with lightning. Which doubles his attack power by 50%

It doesn't say that anywhere. That's my feature added. But to be a bit more clear. I'm talking about his special attacks. :)

only the " Dragon God's Brilliant Flame" i don't like cuz i don't think it an actual natsu move
he could use it only once when he absorbed zancrow's flames he don't have godslayer power anymore :p

The smartest thing to do is to finish Ichigo before starting either Gouken or Natsu.

I'm disappointed how Storm moved on after releasing Ichigo's beta without any note of Ichigo's progress.
However, I understand his plight.  When you've numerous ideas/WIP's, things can get a bit tangly.  :S

you shouldn't insist anything unless its a fact. People have their own opinion of things, so you shouldn't speak so soon. You didn't see me flip off cause he asked a question. Just take is for what it is. :)

This Guy's. (http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/ryu-and-gouki-10912-update-144306.0.html)

Anyways, That gethit looks a little stiff IMO (yet i haven't seen the entire animation or anything.)

And what Tsukuyomi said, he looks like he's smiling (like, if he was enjoying being the punching bag ;P)
Flip the "smile" and see what it looks like, also his Left foot looks like he has 2 toes.

I want some news about gouken as well. Good luck with all your projects!

Maybe he's smiling because the purple fx is some kind of fire and he's eating it.
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects! (Natsu Dragneel)
Post by: StormEX on November 04, 2012, 10:07:37 AM
I'll be showing gouken soon enough. remember: I said Natsu comes first either way. :)

Is it just me or Natsu is smiling O_O ?

From that angle, is does look like he's smiling? I'll fix that, along with his feet. And speaking of the "eating fire" thing. I've been trying to come up with a good way to work with that idea? I don't know if I'll add the eating fire move, cause so many characters us fire in mugen, it wouldn't make sense to just eat some fire, and not all fire. And it wouldn't make sense even if I made him eat all helpers, and projectiles. cause not all projectiles, & helpers are made to look like fire, so it would just be a mess of stupidness.

I think that Heavy Standing Kick is too much outside of a Marvel environment, perhaps if I was a special move or something. I would recommend something else
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects! (Natsu Dragneel)
Post by: StormEX on November 24, 2012, 11:58:14 AM
I don't think so. It fits natsu's fighting style very well. If I'd change anything, (which I'm not) it be Sean's headbutt. Other then that, it looks fine to me. Graphicus will be doing all his basics attack animations, while tsao-ri will handle the shading, plus other animations. & I'll just be coding and color separating him. ^_^

All I need now is a voice actor. Lol

Ed's Voice sample was good, but he's got a couple things he still needs to work on, before I really decide to have him voice an english Natsu Dragneel. Although I can't wait to get to making Edward Elric once I get the priority characters done an out the way. (Natsu Dragneel, Gouken, Kin Kazama)

Also I've decided to layout Natsu's command list, so let me know if you have any objections to it... :2thumbsup:

One question: What about Fire Dragon's Roar? It is one of his staple moves, at least from what I've seen of the show. It could be back, down, back. Other than that, looks awesome!

It's not that I don't make progress. I have to wait on sprites, make effects, gather sounds, hire spriters, voice actors, ect. So I'm spending most of my time waiting on content to work on. Once I get it, it's a breeze from there.

8-bit? What are you talking about? If you're asking if I'm gonna make him hi-res, or 3D then the answers no. Wait are you talking about graphicus's sprites that've been left unshaded? Cause that'll be fix when tsao-ri gets back :)

I honestly like what you did to the cvs2 sparks.
Will they change color (basic attacks,specials,supers)?
Or trying something original might be the right way to go.
I'm sure you'll pick a winner.
Title: Re: StormEX: Projects! (Natsu Dragneel)
Post by: TRUEMicah on January 04, 2013, 05:10:12 AM
Making your own sprites sounds like a win in my books also.
IMO, your hitsparks are a little too close to CvS sparks.

I like what you did with them but they don't have a "custom feel" to me.

I think Its best to keep it like it is now, cause his fire changes depending on the palette you select. If I make it look like fire, then it wont mach the fire color on some of his other palettes. So I'd rather keep it as is. :)

Here's the medium punch. The new way of doing these is so that they're easier to shade for you guys, and so I can easily define color borders without having the black outline going over it.

Strong punch is almost done and looking super smooth. I'll post it here when it's complete.

My new method is a LOT smoother than my previous one (with the black outlines). The outlines caused problems when it came to certain areas, particularly those with 1-pixel wide parts.

Sean matsuda, from street fighter. :)

I based his animations on characters that had similar personalities, movements, fighting stylies, ect.



      Posted: January 23, 2013, 12:11:34 PM
Just Came up what a Unique Way of adding in THREE Finishers without it being cheap or cluttered. ^_^

Slayer Mode:
Slayer Mode will be a meter added at the bottom on the screen. Much like other characters, similar to CVS, Z2, ect. When natsu's attacks are "guarded", the meter will increase gradually. It'll go though THREE stages, based on how long your attacks are guarded. If you use slayer mode, on either LVL 1,2,3, you bar will go down and you'll have to gain it all back again. Think of it like CVS's, "K Groove bar". But rather your attacks have to be guarded instead of you having to attacked in order to gain meter. This won't apply to any other regular Supers he has, like karyu no, hoko, Guren Karyū Ken, ect.


Two of which will act as finishers, & can only be done once per round (Maybe). While the other is a MODE, Based on enhancing all Natsu abilities by adding an after shock to each special & Super attack. (Modo Raienryu)

Guren Houken
This Finisher Launches Natsu at a high speed, engulfing him in a ball of fire. based on the direction the player is holding Natsu can go: Up, Forwards, or Diagonal. This is his LVL 1 Finisher...

Guren Bakuenjin
This Finisher acts as a rush, and sends natsu charging at his enemy. Once he makes contact, he unleashes a flurry of attacks. After the attacks have connected; he launches his opponent into the air, then preforms the finisher known as "Bakuenjin". This is his LVL 2 Finisher...

Modo Raienryu
This Finisher acts as neither of the previous finishers. But as a Mode. Once activated; Natsu gains the ability to attack with lighting, as well as fire under all his special/Super attacks. when a special/Super attack connects with the opponent, an unblockable aftershock occurs to the player, & causes additional damage. The shock last for 10 seconds, & comes in at random. So you're opponent wont be able to time his/her attack correctly. The finisher itself wont last for more then 40 seconds, so Its best for natsu to get his hits in while he can. This is his LVL 3 Finisher...

Amazing ideas Dragonslayer, I look forward to it! It sounds really unique, and a good way to add more of Natsu's moves into the character (especially since Natsu is the impatient type. He doesn't like getting guarded against!). Looking forward to seeing this in action!

I came across this dragon character (Blood Bane), which I haven't seen in awhile. I noticed a couple interesting things in his coding, like the stun armor. I might add this to a couple EX attacks so they can't be stopped once preformed. He can still take damage, but the attack continues. Or i might add it to his lighting flame dragon mode, I don't know yet. :)

I like your ideas for Natsu's finishers. I hope it will be useful and usable, since being based on "opponent blocking attacks" may make it harder to use. On the other hand, it may prove to be a powerful toy to fight turtle fighters. :yes:

Nice to see you've started on Trunks too, even though not so much has been sprited yet.
Obviously, feel free to take all necessary code from Z2 chars to build your template (system.cns, all the override.cns and part of the state-2-3.cns). ;)

I don't think it'll make it harder to use. Mostly cause you're either doing two things while fighting. Attacking, or guarding. So this actually works for the best. Like you said; it'll stop turtle fighters pretty easy. :)

I might need some help on making the gadge itself, cause I've never done that kinda thing before. :p

Natsu actually needs about 6 more frames in his walking animation for it to really look good. Its kinda odd looking at the moment. Plus he needs some animations between his "Standing" & "Walking". The transition to his walking animation from his standinng look really weird. In addition to that: He's also smaller then the other sprites? These sprites are fantastic, but still need work.:)

The Air jump back looks perfect, & the running as well.  :yes:

You're absolutely right. I'll also send you a basic movement sheet so you can get the correct size needed. :)

No offence. But I don't even have your first few characters in my roster. Its not cause they're bad characters.. They're not size friendly. Meaning they're too small compared to kfm, and cvs characters. It was kinda unusual looking. If you updated your old characters like hitsugaya or ogichi that would be amazing.

There was a way to adjust the size from the DEF file that was much cleaner but i don't remember how

Post by: StormEX on February 16, 2013, 12:50:24 PM
No offence. But I don't even have your first few characters in my roster. Its not cause they're bad characters.. They're not size friendly. Meaning they're too small compared to kfm, and cvs characters. It was kinda unusual looking. If you updated your old characters like hitsugaya or ogichi that would be amazing.
I see what you're saying. And none taken. But I don't have plans to update those characters anytime soon. As of now, Try This:

[Size]
xscale = 1            ;Horizontal scaling factor.
yscale = 1            ;Vertical scaling factor.


Mess with this in the characters main file and you'll get it. ;)

if they work in 1.0 localcoord works way better than scaling up in the cns.

I personally use
xscale = 1.15
yscale = 1.15

but I guess you can find a better setting if you had the time :P

Post by: Cybaster on February 24, 2013, 03:06:24 PM
While the lineart is nice on both, I think what bugs me is probably the lack of anti-aliasing on the contours, making the portraits look a little too sharp.

Fast! Hard Hitting attack. Its not easy to see it coming, so guarding it will be a bit of a challenge.

(http://i.imgur.com/kwfbPmi.png)
when Trunks is close to his opponent he teleports behind his enemy & hits with the back of his fist!

Its not official though. After I send it over to cybaster, & Balthazar we'll find out..!
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Video Added)
Post by: Cybaster on February 28, 2013, 11:24:36 AM
By teleporting, you just mean the posadd you put for the move created this bug that you now consider a feature ? :P
Yeah, for this type of move, I usually align the sprites with the center of the waist X-wise and use a bunch of possadds during the whole move.
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Video Added)
Post by: StormEX on February 28, 2013, 11:39:33 AM
Sense the sprites kinda helped promote this bug, I might as well try to fix is somehow. Unless force makes a close strong punch; I'll have to give it another approach. :P

But for the most part:
Yeah, Its a bug. I tried to fix it with posadds but its not aligning with his feet properly.
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Video Added)
Post by: Cybaster on February 28, 2013, 02:56:05 PM
Just look how I coded s.SK on Goku and SSJ Goku. The alignment of the sprites is mainly done around the belt, but I have a big bunch of possadds defining stuff every frame or at the end. Not very sexy, but it works.

Hey Guys! Been awhile huh ^_^

I've got some good new & some bad news.

Good news is:
- Natsu his still being worked on, Slowly but surely.
- I've picked back up on coding him this afternoon, so expect some developments later this week/month

Bad news is:
- Graphicus resigned from spriting Natsu's animations. Although I still have Tsao-ri handling it, so progress will be slow.
- Force hasn't produced any content for trunks yet, so I don't know when I'll be picking back up on him. but hoepfully soon.

Revamped Walking animation:

And tsao-ri: Beautiful asa always. I can always count on you to do a hell of a job! And no, it wasn't too long. :)

I'll send you the Next beta once I get all the animations in (including the fillers)

Edit:
Tsao-ri I noticed you missed a couple frames when shading the 'Strong punch'. If you could fill in the animations missing, that'd be great! also send them to me as exported images, cause its showing up odd when I try to export them myself. Thanks! :)

Does he do that initial step into the ground for footing too?

Post by: Andx on July 18, 2013, 09:34:11 PM
I think he's done it once or twice, but he doesn't end with the uppercut though.

I know you probably want to be done with the basics before moving on to the super moves but I really wanted to see how this would look...

This is an EXTREMELY rough sketch of what the Guren Kanryu Ken might look like:

(http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/452/9s9.gif)

Maybe I've taken too many liberties... I dunno :(

What do you think?
that's as true to the anime as it can get. It's beautiful, even as a rough sketch. The dust adds in a unique look. So no worries, or boundaries. I appreciate your creativity. That's what this is all about..! :)

also:
It does end with the uppercut,  & he has stomped the ground before preparing for an attack. :)

They were talking about Luffy's Gattling Gun, since they stated it remembers that attack.

Do you already have a portrait in the same style as Trunks, or was it because Trunks is in Z2 style?

Honestly, I don't think it matters if it's exactly same as the source. Since this character is fully custom made (sprites and coding) I don't see the problem if Storm decides to put in something of his own.

But that move does look pretty badass indeed :smug: It reminds me of one of Krizalid's supers; which ironically also ends with a flame punch :llama:

Actually it does if you saw Natsu's Battle with Gajeel he Ends Guren Karyuu-Ken with a uppercut

Ichigo was put on hold, for now. I'm actually glad I did, so I can focus on my StormEX style more. Personally I feel like it's for the best. Gave me plenty of time to get his moveset down. :)

Post by: Watta on July 25, 2013, 11:06:45 AM
Ichigo's been goin through all sorts of changes in the manga/anime so it's a good thing Ex put it on hold. Now he can get a version done where he doesn't have to worry about new moves or abilities Ichigo might receive. Besides, the Beta storm released is a pretty solid character.

Great work on Natsu as usual bro!

Now that I look at the medium kick again, I really screwed up his size... he's shrinks when he kicks... (blame myself for trying to freehand these for once instead of using the template I normally use... I thought it'd help me finish them faster)

Tsao-ri, do you need me to fix them or can you work with it? Either way is fine.

the pants change cause these sprites are temporary until they're shaded. :)

GOOOD AFTERNOON/MORNING/EVENING

Sorry I haven't had much to update lately. My pc is currently out of commission until later this week, & progress has been slow. Graphicus works when he gets the time, an tsao-ri is a father now, so time is limited..!

However:
I've got some new animations to show, once things start moving again. Thanks for all the support, & expect more in the future. :yes:

What was your next step after Natsu? I'd also like to ask if cvs Ichigo will get his bankai in the next two years?

Don´t know about  EX, but from my end i also like to continue whit the bankai mode, and some updates on the existing moves...
yes of course add some vizard stuff and some basto lord type of deal :D an why not maybe  a final move....
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel ( 2nd Video Added)
Post by: StormEX on December 06, 2013, 02:40:46 AM
thanks for the support. We'll most likely be continuing ichigo, right after Natsu. I've got ichigo's moveset completely redone. I'll lay it all out once I get the time. This version however won't be projectile based, like the previous. I decided to skip on the traditional, can go with something more original. incorporating some punches, kicks,  grabs, unique attacks. :)

However my pc is still giving me a hard time. It's constantly crashing, & showing signs of hardware issues. So I'll be getting a new desktop (opposes to a laptop) within the next month or two.

This sounds good. Are you still going to have it like 3 attack buttons or are you going to make it along the style that Natsu's in? Either way, it's gonna be good :)
If only he actually had more than one move in the series, I'm sure it would have helped you guys out a lot lol

how about the Getsuga Tenshō that he copied from White zangetsu or should I say original zangetsu where he would be about to chop you and the character would be in a block state and a question mark would appear above the characters head and Ichigo would hold his hand on his sword and do the Getsuga Tenshō bomb like in 4:53 in this video

By the end of tonight: you'll have your money. That's a promise. :)

by the way: just incase everyone doesn't know how this attack works, I'm going to give a brief description on how the commands will be executed.

command: super karyu no tekken
- 2x QCF, any punch command.

Properties:
- by default,  this attack will move straight forward, hitting the opponent once, with a 150% damage. You can hold up to maneuver the attack into the air, diagonally. This attack consumes 1 super meter, & has an EX version which consumes 2 meter, plus a special arts version, which can only be done with health below 300% & 3 meter. each version increases in, speed, damage, & hit count up to 10 hits. do version 1, hits only once. Version 2 hits 5 times. And version 3 hits 10 times. each version create a wall bounce effect.

I think it looks perfectly fine, at least for Beta stage. just make sure it has proper alignment with the crouch animation and I think everything will be good. :yes:

Be careful when using blurs. Because I can't fit all those mixed colors into the palette box properly. Otherwise, it looks phenomenal!! :)

great work Tsao-Ri:) now it looks perfect! I really like how you did the blur!

do you mind me helping you go over some other animations you posted? like the headbutt for example. You have great animation skills but there is still some small things that can be improved easily, just like the one animation I just showed you. Some of your animation lack the impact - Diepod and Balthazar are very good at it and are a great reference to learn from.

aligned the head in a frame and removed one frame in order achieve more speed.

He's an interesting character to look into. He's from an anime known as "Fairy Tail". If you get the chance, just look it up. You're bound to like at least one character from the series. Mine just happened to be Natsu. Lol ^_^

And that's the  SSJ Trunks Z2, me & force were working on. Though I haven't heard from him, in several months. I'd love to continue the project with trunks, but it's not possible unless I can find something that's able to sprite in that style.

So late last week, something had ended up corrupting the natsu dragneels file. So some of my coding progress was lost. However I was able to rebuild what was lost, so everything should be back on track. ^_^

nothing you couldn't learn. Find a style you think you're comfortable with, and just give it your best. :)

the only thing that's left are the special attacks, & super arts. And a few minor things, here and there. Once he's released, any bugs found, will be fixed in an update. :)

Ichigo definitely isn't finished yet. Though he's on hold until natsu is done.

You'll just have to be patient, this char is being made from scratch.
Show some respect for their work instead of rushing them.

Post by: StormEX on November 08, 2014, 07:58:00 PM
I understand that people are waiting, & that it's been an extensive amount of time. However, Keep in mind that everyone involved in this project HAS to put their personal lives before anything. I only program the character. I stopped Sprite characters awhile ago, so I'm not responsible for the amount of time it takes to hand draw the animations. So just be patient.

You'll just have to be patient, this char is being made from scratch.
Show some respect for their work instead of rushing them.

Big time this ^^
Just look at the sprites and see how much effort has been put into each. You can't do that without taking your time.

Small Update:
(http://i.imgur.com/5ZPHJ1n.png)(http://i.imgur.com/nCTGth2.png)
(http://i.imgur.com/m0duthA.png)
I decided to change ALL of his special effects, from Hi-res blur animations, to Simple Pixel animations. This doesn't include his hitsparks, or super arts effects. I decided to make this change, because I felt it blended with the characters design more naturally. In addition to my previous lack of special effects, when using Hi-res. So I hope you guys like it. Let me know what you think. I'll keep everyone posted for more! :)

Me too. Hi-res fits him better, they use hi-res in the anime anyway.

Post by: StormEX on November 28, 2014, 11:52:02 PM
I agree that the Hi-res was a more stylish approach, but I was limited on effects that fit him. I might just turn these into Hi-res later. I'll see how I feel about it, as time goes on. :)

well it is your choice DragonSlayerEX but I also agree with them as well. I guess I can only say so much seeing that I'm viewing pics and not seeing these effects in animation or video.

I actually like the low-res ones, they compliment the sprites better and look less similar to PotS styled effects (not implying that they're bad).
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Original Sprites)
Post by: Aldo on November 29, 2014, 08:53:16 PM
Bunch of low-res h8ters. Low-res effects are a piece of art over the hi-res extremely overused hi-res effects concept. I feel those work for the character but dunno how well with those blend with those hitsparks (hi-res I assume?)

That's actually how I've felt about it, too. I wanted something to match better with the sprites, but who knows. Everything is still subject to change.

If anything, I'd have to change the hitsparks to better match the effects. In addition to every other blur effect, which I'm honestly not gonna do. Lol
So I'll just continue throughout the project and see how I feel about it, later. After all, this character IS for you guys to enjoy! :)

It Probably needs more shading in a few places, but this is what I got. With or without fire? :)

Maybe late to this but eh, I'm not feelin the low res flames myself, I don't think they mesh well at all, in fact they look mega clashy.
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Original Sprites)
Post by: StormEX on November 29, 2014, 10:16:40 PM
If I were to use Z2 effects, I might as well use everything else. I doubt any permission would be needed, given the fact that pots didn't permit anything released in his style. :P

I'll just stick with my own personal style, but find the medium in all of this. :)

Haven't posted in a while, so I thought I might as well throw my two cents in on this one. I've been following this project for a bit, though.

TBH, I dunno which side to take in the whole Hi-Res vs Lo-Res debate. I understand why some people would prefer the lo-res effects, but I'm honestly not sure they suit the sprite style very much. They look like something out of MvC when the sprites have a pseudo-CvS thing going on, and it clashes a bit too much, IMO. But at the same time, I don't really recall what the hi-res effects look like, so I can't say for sure if they looked any better than the lo-res ones or if it would be worth it to turn the lo-res ones hi-res.

It's ultimately up to you, however, and I'm sure the character will turn out well enough that the effects don't really matter in the long run. If enough people make a fuss, however, I'm sure a config file to choose between them would shut them up. The Z2 characters had something similar, I believe, although I haven't seen many people play with the hi-res effects on, so what do I know :P

Good luck with the project!  :)

I think the position of his pupil looked better on the previous version.
It looked more like he's staring at you, now he's staring at the flames like he's ready to nom it.

Try to work on his eyes and eyebrows, I thinks that's the main issue.
I might help if you anti-alias it a bit I think.

The position of the flame is better, but it's still clashy.

I like the extreme colorshades though :)

personally, I think the character will be so interesting to play as, that most people won't mind the effects. But I'll definitely look into touching them up, or turning them hi-res. Seems like that's what most people are looking for, & that's usually what I would go with. :)

You might want to narrow the space between his eyes a little bit though.
Also the outline underneath his eyes are a bit harsh.
Otherwise I think it's really fine as is to me, really well done this time

Thanks, I appreciate your support. I'll definitely check out the details you've pointed out, and I'll see what I can do. Though keep in mind, the lines underneath his eyes, were supposed to replicate his special ability, known as "Dragon Force". His skin gets scaly, & his eyes form a dark layer, around them. Though this sprite wasn't completely done. :)

The animation will serve more than one purpose (special/super) so I didn't wanna have the range too extensive..! This will also be followed by fire effects so the outcome will be tasteful, flashy, & satisfying..! :yes:

Also Tsao-ri unfortunately isn't able to dedicate his time to the project any further, due to lack of time. He recently took up an important career, in addition to having to raise a child & focus on his marriage. I fully support his decision, regardless. And if not for him I wouldn't have gotten this far. I owe him (and many others) a HUGE thanks for pushing forward on this project for the longest.

This will serve as the animation for his level 2 special abilities, like:
- Guren Bakuenjin
- Guren Karyū Ken

One being a command input combo rush attack
The other being a rapid hitting attack
And the last being a Directional bash attack

I take few seconds to say that I'm really looking for your character, DragonSlayerEX.
StormEX has a special place in my heart, a little bit like Choujin.  :coollove:

Good luck! :)

While it looks good shading-wise and proportion-wise, he walks as if he has shit in his pants. Seriously, there's no other way to describe this walk cycle.
Maybe your spriter could possibly tweak that somehow? But aside from that, it looks good.
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Original Sprites)
Post by: deddy95 on December 20, 2015, 09:34:01 PM
I honestly don't know how to remove that shit from his pants. Try and focus only on the legs or only on the upper part of his body. The problem is the motion itself or some keyframe?
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Original Sprites)
Post by: Graphicus on December 21, 2015, 02:14:33 AM
Looks fine to me. My guess is that you're seeing it that way because he's walking in place. Either that or there's too long a pause after each foot touches the ground for your taste.
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Original Sprites)
Post by: StormEX on December 21, 2015, 02:49:21 AM
I don't quiet understand what you're seeing, but my guess would be maybe the torso movement or spinal area, giving him a slightly stiff upper body..?

Either way, I agree that it's not a big enough issue to really spend a lot of time redoing. It's a hell of a lot better than his old Walking Backwards..!
Title: Re: StormEX: Natsu Dragneel (Original Sprites)
Post by: rhiggatwat on December 21, 2015, 06:01:22 AM
That is pretty much what people look like walking backwards. You don't walk the same as when you're going forward, you're more careful and awkward because you can't see where you're going. I think it looks great.

(http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/fairytail/images/7/7c/Fire_Dragon's_Sword_Horn.gif/revision/latest?cb=20120303153647)
Identical to that of Ruby Heart from MVC2 or Jon Talbain from Dark Stalkers. If you're unfamiliar with the move or how it works - it's basically a multi directional attack, which provides a great level of versatility & advantage over your opponent. Expect more concepts to come and I'd love to hear more feedback/suggestions..! :yes:

kenshin said it well. the cvs styled bison (by pots) is really good for this move.
And in comparison with the sfa styled one, the cvs fits better in game.
here below some images:

StormEx's using low-res/pixelated effects for the character.
Having hi-res effects with low-res effects wouldn't feel right.

Post by: StormEX on January 06, 2016, 04:21:32 AM
I do agree that m.bison would be great reference, but my issue is that I don't want any on his fire dragon supers to feel the same. His fire dragon iron fist, for example, will also jet toward - causing multi damage to the opponent. Sword horn is a directional based attack, which adds a little more diversity to the mix. I also don't want the move to feel as strong, because he'll have other supers that'll Definitely out preform this one - but require more meter. Blah blah blah :P

Iron fist:
Dash

Sword horn:
Directional

Wing attack:
The Grab

Dragon Raor:
Wide spread

Crimson lotus:
Counter multi hit

Also, it's charge time!!

I don't really get the movement of the right arm on the eleventh frame, are you suggesting to add more recoil to his arms?
Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites

Yes, more recoil + his upperbody goes up first, the arms should return a moment later I think :)

Post by: StormEX on January 07, 2016, 09:13:06 PM
More recoil does in fact look more appealing. I would seggest that you make his arms & body jerk around while charging up, in addition to giving an ending sequence..! Looks amazing nonetheless..! :yes:

The loop section is obviously incomplete yet:
- the hair will shake
- the shading on the arms and the legs will add a shaking effect to his whole body
- the pants wil shake a bit
- his left leg will be shortened to match the height of the right one
- the tattoo will be added

Now i'm not sure about adding an up and down movement to his arms.

In the crouch get hit, the left foot (viewer's right) moves a bit too much from the first frame to the second.

Also, it's the only one with a different palette. :P
Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: Thunder-Shock2004 on January 26, 2016, 01:22:22 PM
the crouch gethit anim is strange on the legs. i agree with alex, that leg moves too much, but it's not only that. i think you can give it a different movement. i mean, if you get hit in that position, your legs won't slide like you did. instead, they'll would move on the sides with the crotch going slightly forward. so, natsu right leg would move in the opposite direction compared with this one, and his feet would be still visible in their initial position, albeit slightly inclined backward. Beh, at least in my opinion. I see it more natural than yours. Logically speaking if you are hit while crouching, you'll do what you can to not fall behind, thus using more your legs to keep your ground. The sliding cancel this logic.

..my only doubt is that you did that way to match some later-to-do kneeling animation, like a time up losing pose.
Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: StormEX on January 26, 2016, 03:03:56 PM
I agree with the leg jerking around a bit more than necessary. I actually didn't noticed that straight away until you pointed it out. I don't see anything too strange about the crouch gethit, outside of that. I did intend on keeping a consistent theme, so-to-speak.

finishing ichigo has little to do with my desire to finish him. It has to do with the lack of animations necessary to do so. Tsao-ri isn't available to participate in making that happen. So unfortunately it can't be finished, beyond its current statues. Unless another animator steps in, or I complete the task myself.

Now Natsu is a completely different story. :thumbsup:

Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: Thunder-Shock2004 on March 27, 2016, 06:39:48 PM
Tetsuga, i think it's better short, even if the longer hair gives him a wilder look. Looking in the manga, when he show himself gives off the image to be really powerful, more than ever.
Maybe DragonSlayerEx can do the trick as a possible intro. Something like this:
He enter the stage like in the manga, with cape and all, then shout giving out heat shockwaves. Lucy appear with Cancer and they cut off the hair in a quick fashion, leaving Natsu confused (interrogative points over his head, maybe him looking his hands - for cutted hairs), then assuming fighting pose. Just an idea :D (all in few seconds. i think it's possible)

Anyway, Good Easter Day to all ;)

it was definitely entertaining, but I actually read the manga and for what it's worth: I'm holding back on a lot of ideas I could be using, because of the time period I'm working on specifically. That being said, there are certain things you should/shouldn't expect this version of natsu to have. ;p

Think of this version of Natsu only going as far as the grand magic arc, in his character development. Right before he beats rogue..!

I'd love to take credit for the animations, however the artist behind what you're seeing is Deddy95. He's been the lead designer for quite some time now, and I own him, tsao-ri, fayt, graphicus, & a bunch others a huge thanks for helping me push this project along..! :thumbsup:

Most if not all the animations he's done, have all been original in concept. Early on, some bases were provided as reference material, but he's talented on his own..! :yes:

Truth be told, I'm actually behind on a lot of programming, & color indexing. Just expect his release before the summer. ^_^

Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: StormEX on March 29, 2016, 12:49:58 AM
Short answer: yes :3

Long answer: I just like to pay my respects to the ones who help push this project. Look at it for my perspective. It's been three long years. The characters been on & off for a long time, and if not for deddy95, tsao-ri & all else; this wouldn't get done. This project has become very personal for me now, and it's one of my main focuses. I enjoy it, so I hope everyone else does as well. :)

a few times I felt like quitting actually. I can't tell you how often I wanted to drop the project and move into other things, but I personally hate leaving things undone, so I just kept at it. It was mostly due to the inconsistency, not the motivation itself. :P

I wanna say illusion, but I think it's just how his body is arched. Natsu's a bit of a lean guy, so I think it's angle. It's the proper size, when compared to his crouch pose.
Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: deddy95 on March 29, 2016, 02:27:25 AM
I spent a lot of time on the size of that frame, it kept looking too small compared to the idle frame. I tried taking photos of myself as reference and i noticed that the only thing i could do to increase the size without fucking up the proportion was to break the limit of the ground making his knees lower than the feet. That might be one reason it looks a bit small, the other reason is that is back is a little arched as stormex said.
However i'm glad you pointed that out :)

That's rather unlikely. As far as this Natsu's abilities & cameos go: it'll only extend as far as the grand magic games. Anything past that isn't gonna make it into this version. However there will be certain exceptions to this, when it comes to particular fire dragon spells.

Guarding Natsu's attacks will increase his "lighting mode gauge", while hitting Natsu will increase his "dragon force gauge". Landing hits & powering up won't increase either of the meters but it will increase his super meter..! Make sense?

No, he doesn't. He just meant the gesture and like the guy above you said it's Fairy Tail's signature pose.

the reason for this is because the magic particles resonating from Lucy are gonna blow upwards onto natsu face.

Sooo much of his gameplay was based off of Jin saotome, you'll instantly feel right at home..! In fact I based Natsu's gameplay off of a lot of different characters, like sean matsuda from street fighter, Jin saotome, and other familiar sources..! :yes:

Important Announcement
- How would you guys feel about me Releasing a public beta, showcasing his combo system, and general progress?

None of his special
abilities or supers would be accessible, However it would give people a chance to:
- provide feedback on his current progress
- suggest alternative mechanics for his combo system
- satisfy their need to test natsu's build..!

It's been quite a long time since this project began. I'd like to at least provide a sample for people to enjoy, until it's full release..! :yes:

there's a few mixed posts about this and personally mixed feelings, but StormEX as much as i'd love to play test the shiznit outta your Natsu i'd hate to say it but i agree with Johnny to beta test the heck outta it then release it after the bugs have been fixed.. anything else found afterwards should be simple fixes from there..

although if you choose to go ahead and public beta test.. i will be grabbing it of course lol.. just like i did with your incomplete Ichigo .. well its completed up until the point where he fights byakuya in the soul society.. in other words no bankai.. but still overall enjoyment to play with.. and tbh.. i do prefer his shikai days more than his bankai..
Title: Re: StormEX | Natsu Dragneel | Fairy Tail | Original Sprites
Post by: Dope on August 27, 2016, 06:02:17 AM
My personal practice on the matter in recent years is yes release it. Sort of. I post download links in the project's wip thread and leave it at that instead of clogging up space in the release section with something that's incomplete. It gives people that are actually following the character's progress the chance to try it out without overhyping and causing shitty knockoffs to appear. Although my choice of projects aren't as popular so I don't know how something like that would work out on a character like this. That's just my personal opinion on how I handle my projects these days (when I actually bother to work on them that is).

Hit me up some time though man. It's been years since we last casually talked.

Edit:
Be sure to ignore placeholders, and animation inconsistencies, as I'm very much aware of them, haha..! I'm doing what's needed in order to sharpen the edges, so to speak. So look out for programing flaws in particular. Not so much animation :P

He feels great so far minus these two issues. By the way its all corner stuff.

- I've notice canceling after the first hit in his air Hk after doing Jump+Mk is too inconsistent depending on the size of the character.
It works on pots Ryu with no issues at all.
Any character thats tall depends on the timing of the Mk for the Hk to cancel the first hit. If your timing is off your Hk won't come out or he will do both hits which is a knockdown.
You can't Jump+Mk, Hk short characters like Talbain, Wolverine, Jin Saotome, Jill etc

- How come after doing his Jump Hp into standing Hk only the first hit lands?

Post by: AlexSin on August 28, 2016, 09:06:50 PM
Feedback:
- Tsao-ri is spelt wrong; :P and you didn't add deddy95 and artchell!

...
Jokes aside (I'm sure you'll credit them),
(testing on 1.0 against himself)
- when opening the characters, there are some debug messages regarding the config file:
PLAYER SYSTEM CONFIG (115) IN STATE 96443: CHANGED TO INVALID ACTION 96443
- If the c.SP hits only once, wouldn't it make sense to make the same thing when the enemy is guarding?
- About the c.SK, my idea would be that it could be unblockable only when the enemy is flying.
- No running-jump sound;

- in groups 3200 there are sprites with pink dots. And before someone says "it's the hair", I mean stuff like this:
(http://image.prntscr.com/image/3855d0cb00844b88a0a81a2f176eb1b1.png)(http://image.prntscr.com/image/e1005fc6ea1643dd92a7724e3b913749.png)(http://image.prntscr.com/image/e8a21a209fca4020be0005cc0d1b6974.png)

Also as a reminder:
Any palette or animation inconsistencies you find are all very much accounted for. They haven't been cleaned or indexed which is why you might see a few pixels outta place. But trust me, my nitpicky ass will definitely clean them up..! I left them as is simply for the beta version. This also includes his read me file in addition to incorrect spellings. So just be mindful of that. :yes:

Hey guys, I know this has been a long and running processing - but I’d like to call to your attention that I’ll be continuing this project starting Monday, December 11th. I took a substantial amount of time off, which I dedicated to family, & other projects I’ve been working on..! However with those things aside, I’ll have the free time required to pick back up where I left off. There’s a lot I’m still very excited to show you guys, and since the failry tail manga has long sense finished - I don’t have to worry about material I didn’t include. Though do keep in mind that this version of Natsu still only goes as far as the grand magic games, so I still wouldn’t want anyone to set their expectations where they shouldn’t. So with all that being said, do expect to see some progress in the coming days/weeks. 

Thank you all for listening <3 (I hate you too)

Guess who’s been working on an Updated Natsu Dragneel, after an Absurdly long hiatus!? Any guesses!? Well here’s an updated Portrait I’m working on, to better showcase what’s to come..! How’s everyone been? Hopefully none are too upset after such a long wait. But it’s about time I dusty off my old work, & finish what I started back in my Youthful Days..! I told myself I wouldn’t update this topic until I had something to show, but I’m currently in the mindset of do it now; and think about it later..! I hope I haven’t missed much..!

Welcome back. Glad to see you back on this project.

What are your sources of inspiration for this project, aside from the Anime?

A friend of mine (thanewdude07, the gentleman currently working on an Original Sprite “Yusuke Urameshi“) and a couple of others I’ve keep in touch with we’re working on projects of their own, which laid a lot of the ground work for me (in terms of inspiration) to continue this project, & finish it to its fullest degree. What killed my inspiration early on was my old computer crashing & ruining all my progress. However; I’ve ordered the necessary tools to work on the damages, & retrieve the files needed to put myself back on the map.

While I was away, I gained a lot of external knowledge & more refined ideas for what I’d like to do with Natsu as a character. A lot of what I’ve said in the past still holds true, today. Natsu will be a Predominantly close range fighter. He’ll have some minimal ranged attacks, like some of the more obvious ones (fire dragon roar). But the rest will rely heavily on combo mix ups, that lead into command attacks. There’s more to come, so my exit post here will have more to showcase. Stay tuned for the weeks to come..!

One final note. In terms of inspiration; Destiny 2 was part of why I came back as well. I found myself investing a lot of time into its grind. Noting several aspects of the game i thoroughly enjoyed. Warlocks are my favorite class, and the solar element gave me a lot of fond ideas for what to do, with certain attacks.

Maybe a youtube video with voiceover explaining the thought behind the character? That would be nice, like the MR above did :D i really like his video.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

once this parts done, I'll move onto revamping his sprites..! I also commissioned an artist to possibly do his own version, or use mine as a base. So what you see now may drastically change, over the course of now & next week..! Stay tuned
