Title: Freeza Z2 [Project]
Post by: Balthazar on December 27, 2011, 06:59:29 PM
Happy Holidays everone

As you can see, this character thread is for Frieza/Freeza/Freezer Z2 

I'll have to start by saying;  I did not sprite the character! In fact, it was dear MFG user Chamat 
This cat has been studying my style, and started making a ton of animations for Freezer!
Politely, he asked if I could launch the thread so perhaps it would attract more people 

This is his stand version:

And this is how I'm revamping him:

here is the palette template

Here is an experiment for color seperation/Mecha Freezer he did.

+Color Separation

So congrats Chamat, you are hereby added to team Cybalthazar, making it...
Team CyChamathazar...with ICING on the cake...with a side-dish of WeezyWhipIt... Or we could just call it Team Z2!

Please come at us with your feedback/comments!

That WIP walk back anim looks strange/unnatural, if mostly for the fact that both arms are making the same exact movement.  I'm sure Chamat knows that, though. :)

Also: FRIEZA Z2 NEW YEARS RELEASE TO GO ALONG WITH VEGETA Z2 XMAS RELEASE  :twisted:

I don't like those sprites.  They look very disproportionate compared to your own.  His head is gigantic compared to his body, which looks ridiculously small anyway.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Cybaster on December 27, 2011, 07:24:36 PM
Yeah, this is really great. More work for me, but these graphics are really worth it.
Great work Chamat, can't wait to see more. ;)

Head is a little big, making Frieza almost Super Deformed, and legs are a little large, but the animations are really very smoooth, and I like the shading very much, which is really on spot with Balthazar's style.

His Backwards/Backstep move, well i want to give him some sadistic move, like Vice does, something like a taunt, i did a test as a normal walking loop, he looks like Urien/Gill, didnt like it


Ah, didn't catch the Vice influence.  The first thing I thought was maybe trying for a Urien/Rugal-style backwards walk, but after hearing your explanation, it makes sense now. :)

Repeating what i said to baltha ( with a lil example, do not mind the shading my shading is terribad and i didnt even try )

Freeza animations are smooth which is great, the only thing I think he needs is to thin out the legs to be more femenine and to get rid of that profile head he has on his stance, its at least one or two pixels wider than most of his heads, here is an example where I used the head from crouch with a minor edit to the eye.

(http://i.imgur.com/rUqPC.png)

All in all a great effort and im glad more spriters are getting into the action. Congratulations Chamat.


edit: forgot to mention, the animated crouches you have have the tail too short, I know you were going for perspective but the tail would look better like in that other crouching attack you have where its trailing to the left.

Post by: Xenomic on December 27, 2011, 09:03:21 PM
Oh my, Frieza now? At this rate, the big guys are all gonna be done by you guys x_x. They do look nice, but yeah it could use a bit more work on the head and legs as said already. Really surprised though, but for a minute I thought it was gonna be his brother from the name. Darn names being so close together like that!

Frigida eh? Odd name, but looking at it, I guess there really wouldn't be much else in the way of a female Frieza eh? He's already girly enough as it was IIRC lol.

All in all, great job on this!
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Palette Jesus on December 27, 2011, 09:13:51 PM
Yes, Freeza needs to be skinnier if that's his final form. Less bulk, more tone.  Although, his 100% power does give him huge muscles, but most people are used to skinny final form Freeza. Freeza is my most preferred, so I am pleased to see this is an actuality.

Great job on the sprites, Chamat, you've really done a great job at the replication of style, considering it was Freeza. If it were someone else with baggy clothes or bigger muscles, you probably would have done the sprites close to flawlessly.



My ideas:

1. The walk could possibly be a levitation, considering Freeza is psychic, but as his health gets lower, he begins to walk. I think that's a feature that should be in all of your characters, to be honest, the different stance and walk animations on low power. Would be a nice little Easter eggs that screams "Balthazar and Cybaster made this characters (ignoring the sprites in this case)!"

2. Have him go through all of his transformations as an intro, or at least the one before the final form.

3. Have him maim the planet as an ending.

4. Have him kill somebody before the fight. Someone who makes sense, of course. Lol.

I have some more suggestions, but I'm not going say them yet!

Goodluck, guys. As always.

4. Have him kill somebody before the fight. Someone who makes sense, of course. Lol.

Ah, yes. That would be a Frieza-like nature to do.

For regular intro, have him kill a regular Namekian/Nail.
For Goku, have him kill Vegeta or Krillin.

Anyway, good luck guys!

(http://s14.directupload.net/images/111228/4lha8g8l.gif)

Both of you fail to really bring to light that the head is too big. That's the other problem...THE HEAD IS TOO BIG. Freeza's head should only be the size of Goku/Vegeta Z2's but bald (Don't try to account for the hair.) perhaps a tad bit bigger than that to really establish his face. His legs ARE too big, and you both bring it to light with the thighs, but Iced kind of did it wrong a bit by not editing the whole sprite. Either way, what Chamat should do is lower the size of the head to the proportion I said before, lower the mass of the arms and legs (Tail too if you want.) and make the sprites less stiff (He doesn't need his arms crossed ALL the time, and he's always standing straight during alot of his moves, but no one really stiffens their legs that much.). THEN when you do THAT, make sure he's the right height, because he's bound to get shorter if you do what I told you.

If you want a reference image you could just use the one from Bardock's vision of Goku and Frieza staring eachother down.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Cazaki on December 28, 2011, 03:42:50 AM
You might think that Freeza has a big head because he's has no hair and a small body, but in reality his head is around the same size as Goku's. Same for Krillin, small body, same size head.

Yes actually, that looks really good. You just need to work on the animation now, but I can't really say much about it since I'm not so good at breaking down the frames.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Rolento on December 28, 2011, 06:50:24 AM
Rather nice so far. Regarding stance animation, breathing is off a bit as the chest seems to be expanding a bit too much, and his shoulders are actually inflating as they move outward. That part is more noticeable on artist's left shoulder. Would also suggest making an extra sequence where he blinks and maybe moves the tail in another fashion just to add some variety.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: NiO ErZeBeTh on December 28, 2011, 09:29:53 AM
well... here's my idea on it...

editing someone else sprite could be rude... but I already know Chamat and Balth, so there's no problem... it's my time to return a favor to chamat (he did help with some sprites for Lien) so...

here's the thing I did to the head (only the head) to make it look more villian and similar to the DBZ series...
I'm not a fan of DBZ, but I watched some of those episodes and I remember how cool Freezer is, so here's my take

Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on December 28, 2011, 06:24:44 PM
That Iced' stand looks more sadistic, i like it, like ignoring the opponent instead of keeping an eye on him. You said feminine? lol man well i heard some clips of DBZ in english and see why you say that, but he is a man
Glad you liked it, I honestly think that profile  head didnt look good and it threw off the sprite, when you show both eyes you have more of a sense of depth in the whole head.

Quote
The crouch stand doesnt leave you a lot of space for playing with the tail, because the ass is near to the floor, i dont know what to do about it.

I guess something like this:
(http://i.imgur.com/jDmK4.gif)
but you already did it in your own frames
(http://i.imgur.com/jeOeD.gif)
the tail in your last frame here is perfect, in fact the whole frame is perfect as a crouch.  I think it would be too much trouble editing your crouched attacks to use this animation tho, wouldnt it?
Be careful that in some animations you have the tail seems to be extending


The following drawing is based of one of the old covers showing the proportions between them, Im not being able to find the toryama pic but it was even used on one of the games as menu art.

I would totally like a voiceless and longer version of this as a freeza theme.There is actually a death rock music for freeza from a japanese band, but its a bit too weird for most tastes.

Anyway when you want suggestions for intros and whatsnot, give the signal and I bet that many ( me included ) would want to chime in.

Your right, let me re-phrase that, then....

There's a Mecha Frieza sprite.  If something ever becomes of that, a seperate project from the normal Frieza here....is there a chance of the re-design Frieza's cannon on it, in an intro or something?

Just thought it would be a nice reference for DBZ fans to reconize.

Hum, palette separation doesn't mean you can add external items on the character's back.
But couldn't you use a helper that depended on the palette to add the cannon on his back that aligned itself differently with different animations? It'd be an obscenely large workaround, but I'm pretty sure it could be done, couldn't it?

Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on December 30, 2011, 10:05:42 PM
Ideas ahoy.

First up, I Still rather like that crouch you have on the other gif, thought I would point it out, its really good, but if you keep that crouch, at least change the head, since it has the same problem the standing head had.( lack of depth)


now the following is only suggestions:


From buuyu retsuden there are some moves that are classic

Elbow slide: freeza slides forward gracefully, then extending his elbow almost carelessly his hand on his chin as he does it, this hits heavy using the velocity to push the opponent, the move is open for the first frame as he slides only hitting in the end.
Tail flip- freeza jumps and spins once with his tail going down in an arc, hitting anyone standing ( but not crouching)
straight headbutt: freeza leaps forward head first, if he connects, the opponent is sent flying
meteo attack: freeza kicks the opponent in the chest sending them upwards, he teleports up where he slaps them down with his tail, as the opponent is rebouncing in the floor he lands and uses the headbutt above to finish the attack sending them flying.


INTROS:
Freeza arrny grunts  ( do like, one body, with the animation of shooting , flying ( one frame) and the animation of falling dead, several heads can then be done to make them seem like many   ) they point at the enemy and shout threats, a big blast of energy falls from above blowing them up freeza lands from above.

One army grunt pointing his fist, freeza teleports behind him, raises his hand to his head and a short beam comes out, he falls down headless as freeza laughs.

Freeza sitting in the ground with a skull on his hand, he crushes it with his hand and rises to his feet.

tiny freeza with several army grunts around him as if protecting him, freeza goes through his transformations but the moment he flares up all his minions blow away.

freeza floating with his arms widespread, graciously floats down and gives a small bow.

Freeza furious, muscles bulging ( like in his 100 percent mode, really huge) slowly calms down, thins down and smirks

hooded freeza, his eyes shine red and he eyelasers his hood off, making him burn.

The whole stage is littered with defeated army grunts, one last one stands shaking, freeza teleports behind him, and punches through his chest

Freeza sitting in the ground, his tail waving like a cat's tail.




winposes
raise one finger and starts doing the death ball animation as he slowly rises, the ball growing and growing

yawns

his army grunts land around him as he poses with several of them

army grunts drop down from above and give him a glass of red wine on a platter
http://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters2/karin-btlr1.gif

He spits angrily to the opponent, then points his hand to the distance, gestures and a giant rock falls on top of the opponent, burying them ( this could also be a move)

His father falls out of the sky besides him and they both share a laugh.


for his emotion system, where he charges up hate for the death ball, he could gain meter from hitting the opponent or taunting him instead of actually "charging".   He could also have moves that are only avaliable in this form.

goku has the kaioken as a move that can be powered up by genkidama for a finisher, with other finishers if he doesnt have genkidama energy for it, freeza could have a similar move, a hyper combo that finishes in several ways:

A Firing squad appears to attack his opponent as freeza laughs it up
A squad of minions beat up the opponent phisically
( maybe both at the same time?)

The coup de grace would be that freeza would be able of finishing with a deathballl that engulfs everyone and kills them all ( maybe a couple are alive after and running for their lives, think bardock and planet vegeta)

Skeleton...skeleton...I wouldn't even know with this guy lol. Seems humanoid enough, but probably want to make it a bit different than a normal one...just not sure what on that bit (obviously, it seems like less toes and fingers (or did he have five fingers? I don't even remember now...) and a tail, but other than that, must be something to make him more unique no?).

Also, that cleaved-in-half reminds me of Samurai Showdown now that I think about it. Nice little touch though (hell, I'm almost tempted to say that that could make him go Mecha-Frieza/Freezer, but that's pushing it. I'm just thinking of how he goes into that from DBZ Budokai 2).

In a few minutes when I get into the mood of typing I am going to tell you everything you need to know, but seriously, go and play Goku Z2. To be honest you can't really replicate something you don't know about. It'll only take you 10 minutes tops to see the gimmick

Chamat, you just need to open the readme to learn about the Hope system for Genkidama, and test it in-game, and you'll see it's very easy. ;)

Very nice animations, I'm loving what I'm seeing here. :)
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on January 02, 2012, 09:57:19 PM
Chamat im guessing your question is about the flip, it would be like the one in the bottom of this image.


Also, I noticed that the gif you posted earlier on was missing frames so here is the full frames for his transformation from hyper dimension.

What do you think about my suggestion to shift crouch onto that one with the hand on the ground?


Hey Cy, maybe its about time to make a goku video with his "fatalities" and cinematic attacks.

Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on January 02, 2012, 11:14:33 PM
He didnt had it back then when i suggested lol, he made it for the flip into headbutt thing.


Baltha, the three genkidamas hitting, and all the different kaioken endings, including the final spirit bomb.

about the hood, while chilled had it i was thinking back to this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6UODhBf4EM

Its all good tho!
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Cazaki on January 03, 2012, 12:35:40 AM
Well okay. The headbutt starts wrong IMO, the way it is now Freeza stiffens up and rotates to the side then head butts him, but really it should be a start based on his footing. Similar to the original move you drew inspiration from at the bottom of this: http://www.spriters-resource.com/ds/jus/sheet/20846

Forth row from the bottom, you see Freeza doesn't go into a vertical flight before going horizontal, but instead he acts like he's diving forward normally, but then transitions into flight. I think that's how should have yours.

The Dash Collision on Freeza's end is too tame. He doesn't look like he's struggling, this is because his left knee is bent, and his back is slumped over. You should have his back arched in a similar angle to Goku's to really create an epic feeling.

Post by: Iced on January 03, 2012, 12:42:22 AM
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5xFD-OJ6k0&feature=player_detailpage#t=108s

the one up there is based on the genesis meteor here, but yeah the constrast has to be stiff or he wont  look like he sprung forward  and instead just look like he flew forward.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Cazaki on January 03, 2012, 01:12:20 AM
Well even though I got the reference wrong on that, honestly it just looked like lazy spriting, he transitions from his stance to the headbutt instantly without any frames in-between.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on January 03, 2012, 09:03:09 PM
Hmm the only one i know that revamped those sprites was Armentis:
(http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/344/4/f/frieza_by_armentis-d4ie7x2.gif)
Im not going to do it exactly like this, thats why i did him in the pod
You can have several intros with different animatins, and then mix it up.

Quote
There will also be a vertical headbutt, based from his win pose:
(http://i.imgur.com/til6n.jpg)
Like that, rotating in fetal position with a flame effect surrounding him, Like Maxima

That animation on the bottom is his jump up animation, for when he flies upwards.
If its gonna behave like maxima maybe you could consider having it as a telekinesis move where he motions his hand and a huge chunk of rock falls from above, it will be less work for you and look more natural than a vertical headbutt.


For the horizontal headbutt its a matter of timing, if the frame where he is tensed up in the ground lasts a few more ticks then imediately transitions into him flying headfirst at a high velocity it will look like a snapback effect.


What do you think of the comments on the crouch?

But dont be mean with poor Cybaster, he has more work to do now... :S
If he wants to code Freezer of course... ;P

That is the curse of being really good at something....people will steal all your free-time!!

Well, nice to see you cute face around here, makes browsing the threads a lot more fun  ;D
We need supporters like you (I know I do  ::) )!
And now that you are here, let me tell you, good luck with your learning to code, and create!
Another duty that was awaiting Cybaster  ::) Oh lord, we are asking so much of him  ;P

Thanks for you kind words, ofcourse a great New Year to you too...  ;)
Good Luck to you too  :D !

I'll wait for Chamat to send me the sprites and tell me it's fine to start to actually start (ie. when he's finished with the gethit sprites I guess).
until then, there's no template,so refrain from making palettes please.

Indeed, template is not even indexed, so it's not usable in Mugen. No need to make palettes with this one yet.
Chamat, do you want me to post a template with correctly indexed colors for Mugen, so that people can start submitting palettes, or do you want to wait till you finish gethits or color separation ?

Nice anims as usual boy ;) !
But Yeah I agree on the pecks being too big in the jump frames
*Chamat, I took the liberty to edit a few things on of of your sprites, i hope you can use them in the creation of your later sprites;
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/FreezeradjustmentsbyBalthazar.png)
Let me go through the changes I made;
1.The pecks ('breasts') you gave them are too big and square, when they should be streched (because of how he has his arms positioned)
2.I made the kneecaps bigger
3.Changed the shape of his shoulder pads.
4.I put a lot more of the darkest shade of his skin on the edges of his overlapping body parts, most prominently on his left leg (that has the left arm behind it)
 and also on his body and right arm, that has the tail behind it. Also the fingers. Even though sunlight falls on those part prominently, I still add the dark colors   
 to have a better sense of seperating the body parts.

Hope you can use this feedback :)! Good Luck boy ;)!
Title: Re: Freezer Z2

Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: AugustAPC on January 22, 2012, 04:35:34 PM
Is that a grab? It looks kinda goofy that he pulls himself up with one leg. I think it'd be better if he hopped on top of their head, and then did the spin if it connected, a la Dictator. Also, having him pause for a moment after he gets on their head would be good.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: AugustAPC on January 23, 2012, 02:58:02 PM
Well, the pause could be done to insinuate confusion. If someone gabbed me and hopped up on my head, I'd be thinking "wtf?", lol. It's a funny move, but it all just happens too fast. It's hard to even tell what happens, which is a shame, because it's a pretty unique and interesting attack.

Your call though, I just can't seem to move past of the awkwardness of the giant step he has to take to get on the character's head. Kinda reminds me of when I was a kid and I'd try to climb flights of stairs 3 steps at a time.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on January 23, 2012, 03:00:48 PM
The sprites are already there, its a matter of the coder to test both ways, although i agree that one second pause as freeza is standing on their heads will make the move look that much more impactful.

Its likely that an fx to symbolize teleportation will have to be adde after freeza pushes his foot against the opponent, since not everyone will be the same height.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Cybaster on January 23, 2012, 03:03:27 PM
Well, we'll see when I get to coding Freezer anyway. I always follow the directives given by my spriter(s), but I also make it look as fluent and good as possible, not following what was told to me, and it can end up better than what the spriter had thought at first.
It's all compromises and personal ideas, and about agreeing when the end product is fine to both coder and spriter.

And yeah, I see what people mean with the spin animation. We'll see when time comes. It's a great move with a neat idea. :D
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: AugustAPC on January 24, 2012, 06:03:47 AM
If this is a standard grab attack, I personally wouldn't worry about it interrupting the flow of the battle, as that's basically what throws end up doing. Perhaps the pause could serve dual purpose, it could insinuate confusion, and impact to the move and also, you could take this time to give Freeza some personality. What if during the pause, he laughed at his enemy, then raised his leg back and did the spinny-kick-attack?
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Maekron on January 31, 2012, 11:20:50 PM
I don't know if somebody suggested something like this before but if you need more winposes why not have Freezer put on his scouter, push the button and have it play his TFS theme. (FREEZAFREEZAFREEZA FREEZA) while he smiles demonically.
I know you might have to ask for permission but you could give it to him like that sunglasses winpose goku has.

So far so good. Some minor things can be improved for the animations. As far as color seperation you guys are crazy especially being that is low res thats insane. I wouldnt even do that with my High Resolution sprites. By doing that, doesnt that take a lot of your time to put the color intact?

i will do the template when i do more color separated frames.

Chamat. To effectively do what you are proposing here will take you twice as long, since you are proposing to do a left and a right side.
You will be far faster if you do the whole of freeza first and only then you start applying things like those.

Post by: Cybaster on February 23, 2012, 08:02:44 AM
I'm not really sure. If the palette separation means you can differentiate left from right, then in 1.0 the change can be done by just using remappal, as GM did for SF3 Gill.
It's true in Winmugen you needed to have twice more sprites, but 1.0 kinda fixes this.
I agree the color separation takes a lot of time to do though.

HERE GOES A BIG BAG OF CRITICISM. Been awhile since I've done this.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

I can understand if this isn't the final FX, but this isn't a death ball is it? Because it's supposed to be a black, purple, swirly little ball of death.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

Why is he waving his arms like that? If it's supposed to be like a "come at me" kind of deal, it's not being illustrated correctly, doesn't make a lot of sense. It would be better if he were just floating away.


Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

That jump animation is already really weird, and the kick isn't really, uh, practical. If he's jumping it probably should be directed to the ground, and it's really weird that his legs even get to go all the way to his shoulders, he could be that flexible of course but it looks weird and uncomfortable.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

On the very first frame his right leg is too small, and on the last frame his torso looks really odd and uneven.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

Well that throw doesn't look very convincing to me, maybe that's just a nitpick but who really throws like that.

The rest I didn't comment on look pretty good to me though. They look much more fluent and consistent than they did when you first started, there's significant improvement but your proportions seems slightly off and some your animations look fairly robotic and weird

Looking really nice here  :o just one issue I have... He shouldnt be running IMO

You can have that walking animation you did (I think its walking) where he is gliding. I dont ever remember Freeza running. From what I remember I think Metal Cooler was the only one I saw running but that was so long ago. Also if you are going to have him run that tail needs to go up and down. like the dancing movement  style of waving your arm.

Also I just noticed. That big Earth destroyer is held up with his index finger not the palms of his hand.

That run is completely in char, down to the crossed arms.
his death ball is using his index, the super nova was a different move.

some of those sprites seem to have gained thick legs again, he looks kindof bloated on those.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on June 28, 2012, 11:36:04 PM
Agreed. Some frames look bigger than others or the tail is longer than others. I know its a pain trust me. I know there are a few animations on Mel that are either a little big or small. but it just teaches you for future projects.

I disagree, it's not a flag or clothing. His tail is a massive and powerful, appendage, it shouldn't flap in the wind like what you're describing.  I like how the tail is now, reminds me of a velociraptor's movement and how it's used for counterbalance when they run. This animation seems perfect to me.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on June 29, 2012, 01:39:30 AM
That tail is way too stiff IMO. Im not saying to make it move like water. Even Dogs and Cats tails move a bit more when they run. So when he flies forward his tail shouldnt move at all because its tail is mighty strong and has a mind of its own  :-\

so it moves here but doesnt move when its running. makes perfect sense  :S

(http://i.imgur.com/lV6eg.gif) (http://i.imgur.com/XCxRB.gif)

Now if the tail doesnt move ill just take it as Freeza's a dinosaur  ;)
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on June 29, 2012, 02:10:35 AM
Even that looks wrong to me but I know what you are saying. It was just a thought to look over it. Nothing I say should change your imagination on the animation. Overall I just dont see him running period but thats just me like i said. Its not that I didnt get what you were doing I was just saying to give the tail a little more movement not to make it just like the air dash.

I was thinking about something like this. If i had more time I would had made it move better.

Tail movement I just did is a little big. Smaller waves would be best.

The sweep lacks impact, maybe if the tail whipped around more it would look better, plus Frieza himself is barely even turns around, doesn't seem powerful enough. In the tail attack his other arm disappears entirely, I know that your trying to convey his body covering it up but it doesn't quite work.

It would be great to have an especial Win pose for SSJ goku with Freezer, where goku avoids a destructo disk and this cuts freezer in half while Goku is shoked.

Frieza did a beam? cant seem to remember, other ideas could be a finger laser or a giant orb of ki (could be used as beam struggle too if done correctly)

Make a simple text file for ideas, or an Excel/Open Office sheet for the movelist, so we can see everything clearly.
I can even make the Open Office file for you if you send me the text ideas with pointers on what each move does. ;)

For the sprites, it's important to organize them in folders with each move, separate the sprites, and put an animation (GIF) in the folder so the coder can understand the alignment and timing for the move. :)

Hey Chamat, your animations are looking great. The length and girth of Freeza's tale definitely change in animation. I'm not sure if that's by design, but I think it looks good that way. When he thrusts his tale, I like that it increases in size, it seems to add to the impact of the strike.

I have some thoughts on a couple of your animations.

Firstly, on his recover animation:
(http://i.imgur.com/f5oNg.gif)

I see you have two inspirations, Orochi and Freeza from Hyper Dimenson. I personally don't feel like those two mesh very well. It looks kinda indecisive, for lack of a better word. Almost like he wanted to use his tail to push himself back up, but then just decided to levitate instead. I'd say if you wanted to go for the "tail push", then you should have his tail coil beneath him and then quickly straighten out, to create a spring effect that would launch him up. If you wanted to go the levitation route, I'd have him elevate his tail as he does it. As it looks now, it just kinda seems like he drags his tail on the ground.

Secondly, his slide attack.
(http://i.imgur.com/JeEwN.gif)

Two little notes on this one. I kinda think his tail should have some movement at the tip while he's sliding. I also think his leg and possibly his torso should stretch a little bit more to match the consistency of his tail strikes. I think his body stretching a little would add a more of a sense of force during the slide.

/mytwocents

Everything else looks great. I can't wait to see some video of this character.

been following this project a bit, that medium kick(close) looks nice, I know the frame is in ub22\shinb frieza but the 2nd frame  looks a little weird, it looks more like he's going to punch instead of kicking.

Maybe try doing a different right arm? Good job though this is looking nice. making me want to code my own frieza next lol.

Looking cool, a suggestion for later, it'd be a little cool if his tail smacked the ground hard(maybe a sound and a little dust kicking up) when his health is at 50% or below, to show him getting frustrated.

looks cool, I had some more ideas but I think I should keep them for my own frieza =p cant wait to see it further though, good luck!

The background color only needs to be a color not already in your palette, so that you won't mix it up with a color from the character ; it can be any color you want. Hot pink is usually chosen for the easy contrast. Some people chose bright green for example.

Chamat, i think the destructo disk can be bloqued with an ki shield, but i dont know.
I think it would be great if the disk pass the enemy while it cuts him, rather than desintegrating or exploding.
This could be done too even if the enemy is bloquing, this move could inflict sighly more damage while bloquing than normal.

is the move where he puts you in a ball then goes everywhere smashing you around going to be included. I can't remember the name : (.

Its called "You might die this time" in Ultimate Tenkaichi

In Budokai Tenkaichi 2 it was "Psycho Lock Smasher".

Post by: Cybaster on November 27, 2012, 10:05:06 PM
I don't get your point, he is doing "his kamehameha" that's why it has the white effect, even in the skin but it is unnoticeable
Frieza's energy attack is only in front of him, so the lighting should reflect that and not be round and full, but more oriented towards the front.
Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: AlexSin on November 27, 2012, 10:08:39 PM
The light effect should come from the energy beam, not from above, here is an example:

Sixth frame of the gif.
I should have said that you should do this also to the shoulders.
But maybe mine is just a nitpick.

Psycho Break Smasher is the "other" name for Final Psycho Crusher, and Frieza's headbutt super looks exactly like it, so naming it Psycho Lock Smasher in BT2 is clearly in reference to it.

It is with the head?
(http://i.imgur.com/Uegh7.gif)
Or with the hands?
(http://i.imgur.com/a6dx4.gif)

I like the head bash better. His tail definitely needs to be straighter, to add more of a sense of speed. Also, upon hit, he should pause for a split second and then do a back-flip or a front-flip and land on his feet. As it is now, it doesn't look like there's any real impact.

(http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100709164246/streetfighter/images/a/a7/Ehonda-headsmash.gif)

If you wanted to make it even cooler, perhaps have him spin like a drill.

Lastly, I think he should squat even closer to the ground before he takes off. I feel like you're being a little too reserved in your animations. The more exaggerated you make the poses and positions, the more life you're going to breathe into your character and the more impact the animations will have. Your animations are extremely smooth, they just need a bit more personality.

He squats more just for the Rage version, the one with the hands, and spins if hits the opponent

About the tail, I thought it was good if it moves like that, facing the wind, because you don't note that there are 3 frames, you even see like if there were 2. Gotta see it ingame anyway

I see. I didn't consider that you were showing the whiffed version. It looks awesome with the flip at the end.

Regarding the tail, I like how the tip moves, I just thought it might look better if it came out in less of an arc. As if it was being pulled back by the velocity of the headbutt. Not really sure how to describe it.

Title: Re: Freezer Z2
Post by: Iced on November 28, 2012, 08:47:53 PM
have the ship descend on winposes. slowly down behind him.

for intros you can show just the tip, and he is already in the ground, it would probably best to have it be separate intros from the "full transformation" or you will have really long intros.

An intro where the ship is hoovering and he is already there is the best visually.

Post by: \0/ sunbro on November 28, 2012, 09:27:18 PM
yes! i agree!! like in one intro he could be standing with his arms crossed or something laughing... on the "capsule" sorry i don't know what's its name,  then he jumps to the floor and the fight starts.... i don't know... it's just an idea... :P

He needs some greaser hair, shades and a huge grin while doing that.

About that attack though, weren't they always full beams that extended from his finger until they hit something, or another one is fired?  Those tiny projectiles just seem odd.

I agree with zero to have them form the full straight line.  Can stay the same speed, just need a little more "omph", so they look like they'd hurt to get hit by.

Comparisson gif included. Not trying to bash Chamat's Frieza, ofcourse when he started copying my style, I was still learning and evolving a lot, and the style kept changing.

I don't know what could be good for the contest, maybe Freeza backstabbing people or crushing things while seated.

This one seems fundamentally flawed. The way he positions himself before he leaps makes him look like he's going to spin in the opposite direction. Also, he looks like he's building up momentum in that frame, which just kinda evaporates when he casually hops backwards into the air.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: AugustAPC on December 15, 2012, 03:30:54 AM
Yea, I think it's the backdash sprites that are throwing it off.

In Kyo's animation, when he takes off, his back is completely toward the 'camera', whereas in your animation, most of Freeza's front is facing us. Freeza goes from twisting to show us his back and building momentum, to leaping off the ground and showing us his front, to twisting and showing us his back again. I think when Freeza starts with his back turned toward us, on the ground, each frame after that should have him twisted even more (showing more of his back), until he starts the kick.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on December 19, 2012, 07:31:25 PM
Hey everyone, time to mix things up a bit here.


Dear old Chamat here has passed his Frieza character to me, for me to perfect and finish it, so he can move on to other projects.
I assure you he is in good hands with me. I have taken the liberty to take the already very good sprites and animations, and put my own spin on them. Being the got-to-be-perfect jackass that I am, that means completely respriting them. Mostly because I kinda HATE editing...I'd rather redo a whole sprite then to fix it.
But, I'd like to make it clear; Even though I'm completely redoing the sprites I'd like the Frieza sprites to be forever credited to
Chamat & Balthazar ,
since Chamat did make all the animations that I am simply taking as bases. Maybe four or five animations I'll scrap and make completely new, but I'd say about 95% of it I am straight up drawing over Chamat's sprites.
Without further delay, I present you some animations that I've completed already;


(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_run_zps096b4362.gif) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_crouch_idle_zps351d2f19.gif) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_crouch_turn_zps695e9426.gif)

Didn't take much effort for this one eh? I always thought Frieza was a girl for the longest time. It doesn't help him any that his VA is a woman lol. Nice touch with the heart there for the abdomen crystal or w/e that is. :P Is it weird that I find Frieza cute like this?

The heart came from Chamat's sprite (although in his sprite he was still small, almost a midget...I added some lenght to her ;),
but I took it upon myself to infuse some extra sexiness to it :D
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: AugustAPC on December 19, 2012, 07:57:01 PM
Kinda sad, but at the same time happy. Chamat was a beast when it came to getting this character going and I absolutely loved his work, but I'm happy to know that if the character has to be passed on, that it's to Balthazaar. I know Balth, having created his own style and being more than a bit of a perfectionist probably had an itch to paint Freeza up a bit.

Only critiques would be that the tail seems kinda fat on the Midnight Bliss and his face looks a little squished when he stands up from the drop down entrance.

Yeah, I noticed. I haven't seen the original sprite. However, I see the definition in waist/hips to be proportionate to a female. Very well done. Always wondered what a female of their race would look like. If it's anything like that, that's not half bad at all lol.

Is this animation a hint towards someone (a certain blue haired Saiyan) we could expect to see in the future?  :P

Trunks' hair is purple mang...

Actually isn't it blue on the manga covers? I think his hair is only purple in the anime.

Also finished blocking (air, ground, crouch..but they're all just 1 sprite as with Goku/Vegeta), the largest part of backwards jump,
Shock, Flip KO, forward airdash, part of aerial HeadCharge (which is some front flip sprites).
Guess I'll work on some more gethits next, then jumping and backwards airdash after that.
The portraits for the Challenge Mode are also already made by Chamat (King Cold, Cooler and SSJ Goku ('legendairy'  look).
Even though Challenge Mode will not be made very soon (we haven't even gotten to Vegeta's yet...well...I did my part; I already designed 20 combos for Intermediate and exported all the text sprites).
I'm waiting with making a palette template, because I don't know what I'm going to include (King Cold, the spaceship, some effects, stuff in his transformation sequence (they have a lot more colors)...and I obviously haven't gotten to those yet.

...Goku is his challenge mode partner?  That seems rather....odd.  Is he trying to convince Frieza to quit or something?

Just a quick small something I noticed, on the animation where Frieza is cut horizontally, the shading on his tail moves.  Intentional?  WIP?

SSJ Goku as Frieza's mentor...wel he'll be for Expert Challenge, which is basicly putting the player through hell, it seems fitting having SSJ Goku telling Frieza what to do, imo.

Post by: Long John Killer on December 20, 2012, 12:31:14 PM
This might be more than too late, but if it's meant to put Frieza through hell, sounds more like something Cell or Raichi would do, rather than Goku during Namek's end.

Still, sounds like it would be funny to see while working on those challenges.  Looking forward to it all.

Hey everyone, time to mix things up a bit here.


Dear old Chamat here has passed his Frieza character to me, for me to perfect and finish it, so he can move on to other projects.
I assure you he is in good hands with me. I have taken the liberty to take he already very good sprites and animations, and put my own spin on them. Being the got-to-be-perfect jackass that I am, that means completely respriting them. Mostly because I kinda HATE editing...I'd rather redo a whole sprite then to fix it.
But, I'd like to make it clear; Even though I'm completely redoing the sprites I'd like the Frieza sprites to be forever credited to
Chamat & Balthazar ,
since Chamat did make all the animations that I am simply taking as bases. Maybe four or five animations I'll scrap and make completely new, but I'd say about 95% of it I am straight up drawing over Chamat's sprites.
Without further delay, I present you some animations that I've completed already;

I guess we'll make a new palette template for you guys soon. Hope you like what you see here.

Some flipping going on. The somersault is light-source accurate...the flip KO is not, but doesn't need to be IMO.

I also finished the Backbroken and Trip sprites. Think I'll do jump-landing and standing turn sprites next.
I wanted to go back to my parents this afternoon, but I might postpone it until tomorrow since I got a cold, and that's no fun when in public transport for 2,5 hours. Actually I already went through hell last night; we went to the movies and had a beer after that, and pretty soon after we left I had to piss real bad, but it was another 20 minutes walking to the trainstation, and then I had a Sprinter train (the one that stops at every goddamn little hillbilly station that exists, and doesn't have restrooms in them), and basicly I had to man up and hold my bladder for about 1,5 more hours. The world might not have ended (it was past midnight), but I think I died a little anyway last night.

When going from his base form to his first transformation, Frieza's armor should explode first, but maybe that's too much details.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on December 23, 2012, 12:02:13 AM
nah thats feasible, its just that those are overlays explods and he was just doing the base sprite. doing the pieces of armor breaking off and falling wont be as hard as doing the rest.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Byakko on December 23, 2012, 12:22:40 AM
There's that, but I was also thinking that it means adding Frieza's base form without armor, before he grows to first transformation, when the armor explodes. It shouldn't be much, but it's just that it keeps adding more and more stuff just for this intro.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on December 23, 2012, 12:26:33 AM
If you look carefully you will notice the base armor is there on the first form. =) (check the shoulders)
It breaks apart when he turns giant but you cant see the pieces flying off because they werent made yet.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Byakko on December 23, 2012, 12:28:33 AM
Oh, okay, it breaks at the same time the first sprite for the transformation appears. I was thinking about the manga, it explodes, he's calm in his armorless base form, and then he grows big.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Karasai on December 23, 2012, 12:39:55 AM
Speaking of the armor, I dont understand why he blew it up, it could have stretched to fit his second and third form.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Byakko on December 23, 2012, 12:42:41 AM
Third form has spikes in the back plus his shoulders (shoulder pads) are a completely different shape, it would have been mightily impractical. For the second form... He probably didn't care. At this point everyone could break through it anyway (Vegeta had recently smashed Jeice's with a chop, cleanly punched through a few, etc.)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

His gauntlets and anklets stay on when he grows tho. Only his chest armor piece breaks.

Uh... ?? Somehow I always figured they were part of him, not some armor, especially since nobody else has them. This (http://images.wikia.com/dragonball/images/3/3b/Frieza_armor.jpg) screenshot (taken from the Wikia (http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Frieza)) shows them pink like his body in the non armored version, but brown in the armored version. I don't know...
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: The Real Niko on December 23, 2012, 01:23:57 AM
His Final Form is the only real one without ANY armor. His third form has more of an 'organic' armor property to it I think. Just like Cooler. But with Cooler it wasn't actual flesh or anything and could be shattered without harming him. I think it's kind of like an exoskeleton.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on December 23, 2012, 01:25:18 AM
His other forms have them brown, considering that he doesnt have brown on anywhere else on his body, I always thought those were gauntlet and anklets, they are even coloured the same as normal armors.

I also thought the same for his panties tho!

I would make the head, tail extreme, and chest armor a little more blueish, but its not that important.
Previous forms are going to share pallete with final form?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on December 25, 2012, 11:28:30 PM
^Most likely, the white and purple, and the eyes are all already shared with the actual sprites.
Depending on what people want, I could maybe seperate some stuff, but I don't see the point in that honestly.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

When Frieza goes from Third to Fourth form, he should crack apart or something, or have some sort of flash.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Neocide on December 26, 2012, 12:11:45 AM
daeron's colors seem spot on. I need to make some frieza intros myself at some point. After doing all this armor on ginyu, frieza's earlier forms should be easy peasy lemon squeezey.

Post by: Balthazar on December 26, 2012, 01:41:30 AM
Yeah, don't get me started on armor :P! It's what caused Vegeta's initial halt in progress.
And because I want to get it just right, I spent way more time then usual on that Freeza sprite.
Naked Freeza is much easier ^^

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on December 26, 2012, 11:53:01 AM
Good Idea Chamat, I'll keep those outlines handy just in case.
What I planned to do was also showing cracks appearing all over, turning more deeply red, and having him flash overall.
Then it would be cool if you actually saw his armor chunks fly off from the explosion (very briefly before a white flash covers the screen.
Then with a very slow fade-out, you'd see final form Freeza, most likely in the fetus position, I haven't decided this yet.

If it seems fun enough, I could make the Budokai 3 alternate version where he goes into fetus position in his first form, then an egg forms around him, and then the egg hatches/explodes and he appears in his final form.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

Heh, a bit of trivia here.  The "egg" you see in Budokai isn't really a part of the transformation, it's actually there to cover up some lazy animation.  When Frieza transforms, the game literally just swaps models for him; the "egg" conveniently covers this ghetto process.  I know one time my game slowed down during the transformation and I was like "oh, that's what that orb is for!".

*also, this is gonna be his idle animation. It will look 100x better once the animated tail is added.
Also, the eye blink sprites will be seperated, so they can be more random, and also faster (now it looks like he's constantly dozing off).

Backwards jump I want him to do some somersaulting :neutral:

I think that should be a two hit move when you use it. as it looks like his tail would hit the opponent too. nice work.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on December 31, 2012, 06:57:53 PM
We'll see how it works, but I think 1 hit should suffice. His tail 'covers' his leg the whole time so I don't think he'll actually hit something with it.


(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_walkbackwip_zps5c0d285c.gif)
Halway done. it actually kinda works already, in this state.
Finishing it should take less time, since I'll most likely re-use the upper bodies. Just new legs and tails.


Does the head bobbing look funny to anyone?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Froz on December 31, 2012, 07:02:03 PM
On the contrary, it makes the anim look smoother, IMO.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Cazaki on December 31, 2012, 07:05:43 PM
The head bobbing isn't the problem on this one, it's the rape face, and his neck. He just looks awkward overall.

I wasn't a fan of the first walk back animation either so hopefully you can make it look more organic
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on December 31, 2012, 07:08:27 PM
When the loop is finished, Ill probably make half a loop that transitions nicely from his stance (where he has his arms crossed).
I'll keep the face, because I like it. I did change the face for his stance, it now lacks the smile (which he has here).
And walk-in-place animations will always look weird, once they are in actual motion they always look a lot better.
*Also finished air backdash sprites today, and a few random outlines here and there.

It looks a bit much like he's frowning or angry, as opposed to a cocky grin type of deal you'd expect with the whole "Bring it" idea, although honestly walking backward isn't really used enough for it to be a noticeable thing in-game :P

^ You guys sure do love to nitpick things to oblivion in this thread... the animation looks perfect if you ask me.
Holding one's mouth in a neutral closed line doesn't read as "frowning or angry".  And folding one's arms mid-battle is evocative enough of the cocky "Bring it" feel, Balthazar was going for here, what's the problem guys?

Yeah, about the run, I wanted to honor your subtle changing of the upperbody, but it wasn't that neccesairy to me,
since he'll move really fast anyway.
Damn, some people like the smile, others don't XD!
I guess we'll make a seperate .sff at the end; one with a smile and one without it.

EDIT:  ^ yeah he does!

Maybe try moving the later frames of the flip down a little successively?  It looks like he starts to fall quickly out of the flip, and then his gravity kicks in and slows him down when it starts.  If he moved down a little during the flip it might get rid of that apparent stall in speed.  Looks great none the less.  Super fluid as per your usual.

I wasn't trying to be an issue, I was just saying if someone like me had no life and enough time to stupidly over-analyze an animation that there was a thing there. I'll admit at first look, the animation looks as wonderful as all of Balthazar's work always does, but I enjoy over-analyzing things. Still a huge fan of your animating, just figured it was something I could point out :P
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on January 04, 2013, 01:48:16 AM
There is nothing wrong with nitpicking on things. Its whether or not Balth will fix it or not. You want us to just say, "awww its beautiful, keep it moving?" then have us artist second guess our self and redo sprites over again which Balth had to do with Goku the first time around.

The walking back animation looks good just something about the head that is a little off. I do like the head on the first one just going up and down.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on January 05, 2013, 05:35:31 PM
In-game the walk will look fine. Probably. It's fine as it is, I won't fix anything on it unless it does look off in-game.
For now: FOOOOHHHHMMMM!!!

A dual release is highly unlikely since Freeza hasn't even begon being coded yet.
No just taking it easy on SSJ Goku because he doesn't have THAT much left, and at this point I'm still running in front of Cybaster
(he hasn't begon the Ultimate yet so I'm not rushing to sprite the Finishers).

Is the effect done? Because the ball needs more contrast, in my opinion. It looks too solid. Like it's not made out of energy... and the red dot in the middle makes it look like Brother Eye or something. Lightning also seems a bit stiff... doesn't really look like it's flowing around the ball.

Post by: Balthazar on January 06, 2013, 01:30:54 PM
It won't bounce off walls, but yes he'll have it for Level 1,2 and 3 and the Level 1 is gonna be tiny.


Backdash:


(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_dashback.gif)


It will look odd if he could throw out a punch during all the rotations, therefore I think he shouldnt, but maybe have added invincibility frames.

HMm yeah maybe something like Sonic's Spin Attack, you press a button during it and he does another spin loop, this time with energy fx around him, it could be nice if a defensive-attack.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Saikoro on January 06, 2013, 05:59:59 PM
Speaking of Sonic, since Freeza has a tail, perhaps it would be fitting to give him a few attacks with that tail of his. I'm reminded of Tails and how he used his tails as propellers.

Just wanted to take a second to say I love and appreciate your talents. Your animations and style are very well done and refined. 2D spriting is a lost form, and you represent that form very well. Your Z2 characters headline my Mugen, that's for sure.

Keep up the groundbreaking work!!
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on January 06, 2013, 07:15:30 PM
I hope there will be a force to the throw of that planet destroyer. Meaning that it should be a solid sphere as he is throwing it. Look into the anime where he throws it. I am just pointing that out so you two can bring more characteristics to it. Overall its coming out great. Few more characters or so and you'll have a full game ^^
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on January 06, 2013, 08:12:58 PM
You shouldn't judge wip/experimental animations too much :mtongue: I haven't even began polishing or editing it, nor have I even started on the animation itself. Come on man, you KNOW it's gonna be good ;) !

This still has a couple of Chamat's frames in it but I just wanted to throw it out there.
It's his high standing Zero Counter. Yes, it reuses frames from his diagonal head dive. Yes, it looks awesome.
It's the best drop kick I've ever seen. Kudo's to Chamat for coming up with the design of this move!

Wizzy's really on a low point right now, but let's all wish him good luck!

I've finally gotten past my mental block and did the idle animation. At first I wanted to give the poses and the tail sprites seperate, but I wanted to polish him a bit more so it's merged now. Notice the darkened edges on his legs as the tail is behind them, and ONLY on those spots (the eye blink sprites are still seperate though).

Jokes aside, I think it looks good. But for some reason; his tail looks kinda sluggy? Also it's missing a frame or two at the end. If you notice, his tail kinda snaps back down on its loop. :P
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 24, 2013, 02:03:23 PM
Yeah it's actually ment to animate a bit sluggish. But you're right; I should add 1 more frame at the very start of the loop to seam things up a bit more.
*edit
yeah that single added frame really patched things up :D!

The fact that he doesn't need to breath doesn't mean he doesn't breath. Doesn't he breath heavily and pants and all during the fight against Goku ?

that's a little redundant, if you don't have to breath, what would be the purpose of breathing? he said he didn't need to breath. The panting is something only in the anime.

It's just weird seeing him breath in a stance. He's never shown breathing, just panting. and again that was limited to the anime's interpretative of him being exerted from using up ki

I'm not sure but who cares if he breathes or not?

just feels a little weird is all, coming from frieza.

whether he breaths or not is up to balth, I like the tail movement though.

That's not really a receivable argument against breathing. Plus, you give an example right after that yourself - maybe breathing is for ki, that doesn't make it necessary to live. You're sure he never breathes heavily during the fight in the manga ?

Post by: Neocide on February 24, 2013, 04:03:24 PM
I gave the reason why the ANIME used it. Not what is given in the manga, goku realized frieza's power dropped significantly, and decided to stop the fight.

i suppose you could have him not breathe for one animation cycle and breathe on the next. i think it'd look weird if his only animation in the stance was the tail though, which is why i like the breathing regardless.

Wow the last few post was whether or not Freeza breathes? Really? I mean really? might as well say saiyajins dont need to breathe either like Goku's father was out in space trying to get to freeza. Balth, I am going to apologize for everyone for such dumb post and not taking to consideration about the animation. I understand what and why you animated it like that.

What you can do here is instead of having his upper body go down that way you can have his upper body expand. this will make his head go up rather then down giving it a more natural look. something like Cyclops of course don't do it exact copy because I have an issue about legs breathing lol but you can see how he is breathing.

3. If its not helping them improve I have the right to.

@Cazaki: Its just a sample, no way I would want Balth to do it like that. I was just saying to change the order on his breathing. instead of natural stance (upper body) to down. Do it from natural stance to up... kinda hard to explain. I would have to edit it to show an example ><
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Byakko on February 24, 2013, 04:56:20 PM
You're right, it looks like the "natural stance" is the frame where he's the lowest, almost hunching over. It should start from the highest point in that animation, like his relaxed position is cocky leaning high back a little, and expand out or up from there, rather than contracting downward and inward. And since he probably shouldn't lean back more than that, it might not work to make him rise up further, so just expanding his chest area outward, his arms spreading a little, should be a better choice.

We'll let Balth decide what he wants to do. He already hard a very hard time getting motivated to sprite the idle animation, and to me it's good enough as it is, but yeah, if there are ways to make it even better, so why not.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on February 24, 2013, 05:35:00 PM
Here, Balth can add a lot more frames to make it even smoother. I don't do Low Res like I've always said.

When you breathe like that your arms slightly moves upwards then expand from each other as your shoulders moves slightly downward/out. Your head doesnt move much but in animation it would look too stiff so lightly moving the head would add more life to it. This is just four frames being rotated so if balth really goes in there and add about four more to add smoothness to the animation this would look 10xs better.

^You didn't add the tail in your preview? You lazy bastard! [/joke] Yeah I can probably make a 4th frame for his upperbody without having to re-add all the tail sprites to the seperate body sprites. But I won't change it more then that, I personally think it's fine. I'm not gonna add animation to his legs for instance.
And the whole breathing thing is fuckin' stupid. My understanding was similair to Iced's; he can breath in space; doesn't mean he doesn't need to breath PERIOD.   F.James, I'll probably just take your edited upper body and put it on my sprites, might tweak it where needed. Thanks.

(Cry) I wasn't being lazy, I just wanted to focus on the breathing rather than adding all the other stuff :) I was tempted though; and yes, you dont need to move anything else other than the tail and upper body. Capcom and Sammy did horrible with Cyclops and and Sol Badguy. I guess they thought every body part have lungs  --;

But yeah take it and make it your own. I don't want to be so focus on my project that I don't get to give feed back/help to other projects. Glad I was able to help.

I actually like Cyclops's idle animation. And I also decided not to change the idle for Freeza; I tried a bit but didn't like the result.
I'll probably just give him one loop where his tail swings but he doesn't 'breath'. Eye blinks will be random, as usual.

When you send me the sprites later on, can you send them as they are in the GIF right now, even if it consist in 30 frames to create the loop ? Because I sure don't want to have to build the loop myself with Photoshop, and having body+tail as separate parts will only cause bugs later on. ;)

dude, use the frames where the tail is at its utmost left to start the attack, it will pair up with the transitions better.

I'm not your dude and the tail looks very fine like this to me. It's more 'snappy/whippy' as it should be for this kind of animation.
Having it transition slowly to the side and then forward will look weird and weak.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on March 21, 2013, 11:36:48 AM
no one said "have it transition to the side slowly" , start with the frame in the loop where the tail is fully to the left and it will look as if he extended it further and snapped it forward, like a whip.

Since my reply was pointed towards Iced himself, it's all cool because he knows me and I didn't mean to disrespect him.
Don't worry I'm not becoming high and mighty, I was just throwing a little friendly dirt in Iced's face.
We still talk with eachother daily and our conversations are almost husband-and-wife like, so he can take it. We're totally bro's.

Also the tail thing he suggested for the first frame doesn't hold up because he can have his tail on any position of his idle pose when you tap the button to launch the attack, as Iced himself pointed out (on chat though, not here).

I've already apologized for my previous comment that was out of order (the 12-year old thing in Trunks thread) so I thought I was leveled out again :P

But alright; sorry Iced for treating you too much like my would-be wifu.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on March 21, 2013, 08:52:45 PM
Suggestion was for gif alone, since it moves around in his idle whenever you attack it will start with whatever frame is there at the moment!
And dont worry we are friendly hazing each other. He's sleeping on the couch over it, tho.

Post by: Balthazar on March 21, 2013, 08:54:48 PM
Ok, so we made a big problem out of something again just because you didn't formulate your sentence well enough again. YOU're getting the couch tonight mister!
And this is an idea I had for a special recovery move for Freeza, but I'd like to hear some opinions about it.
Basicly when he gets back up after a knockdown, you can press the Strong Kick button to do a suprise kick and punish the enemy.
I think it'll fit his sub-boss vibe that we will be trying to incorporate.

Yamazaki has something similar in Real Bout Fatal Fury 2.  I like the idea, it creates a nice mixup especially if Freeza has a strong zoning game.

Think of it like this, when the opponent knocks Freeza down they will want to rush him down and anticipate his wakeup option since getting to him will have been difficult due to his zoning options.  But if they're not careful they'll get hit by the wakeup kick.  Now if they want to avoid the kick they'll have to stay away from him, allowing him to resume his zoning game.

I think its a nice touch (the kick from stand up)

Balthazar, as a suggestion, i think you can make that kick raise some dust, like hes trowhing sand to the enemy´s face.
I think it would fit with the cheat-villain acttitude

I've added a frame at the start, and edited the tail of the 2nd frame, it looks even smoother now.
Been working on his get-hits as well ever so slightly.

His tail is growing longer because he has a boner on this one ?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Duos.act on March 21, 2013, 11:35:26 PM
His tail is already long, it just looks shorter because it's curled up behind him in his stance.

Nah it was Yamazaki, not Cody.  Cody's dirt kick is a normal special move.  Yamazaki throws sand in your face while he's recovering.  I like the idea of Freeza kicking dirt in the other guy's face too.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Sinnesloschen on March 21, 2013, 11:37:07 PM
I think you got Yamazaki and Cody mixed up. Cody's the one with the wake-up sand attack, Yamazaki does the dirt kick for a normal special. Cody kicks sand while standing in some of his supers, not as a special.

No I'm making his tail stretch/be a bit elastic in the attack animations; I think it looks pretty cool.
Daeron; yeah we can add a dust sprite for his tail, but I don't think its should hit the enemy, but just for graphical enhancement.

You could use the dust as a little hitbox extension to improve the range of the move, like if the opponent does anything dumb to rush Freeza down they will get hit as he wakes up.

Post by: Balthazar on March 24, 2013, 11:22:20 PM
Thing is, we usually deliberately leave those strongest move a bit vague, so we can have some fun with them when the time comes to code them and most of the 'boring and neccesairy' stuff has been done. It can also change depending on what sprites have been made.
So basicly for us, it's more fun to not plan it out before hand too much.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on March 25, 2013, 09:57:37 PM
Yeah the arms on that falling animation are backwards, because I lazily reused the frames from his getting-up animation. But I kinda like how it turned out (I wouldn't have gone through the trouble if I thought it wouldn't :P).
I know you had the 'reversed shading' for his power-up, but I thought he wouldn't have aura around him so I chose to do regular shading.
He'll have the cracks appear, glow red and then 'explode', and after it fades out it'll reveal the final form.
I still plan to do the 'bubble/egg' transformation as a tribute to how he transformed in Budokai as an alternate transformation intro.

*edit
hah (this is a joke)
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_knockedoutlol_zps5e1543ef.gif)

-knocked out
-trip
-flip KO
-fall from great height
-super gethit in gut/beam fatalaty
-backbroken
-shocked
-midnight bliss
-cut vertical
-cut horizontal
-my toes! my toes!

that just leaves out the high and medium normal standing gethits, maybe launched and i guess i'll throw in cursed as well

I would actually say that's more realistic, when you're thrown back you'd instinctively put your arms back to break your fall. ... Well, now you edited it and made the arm fling back upward, which isn't that.

Freeza also stains his hands with the blood of a LOT of people, so I thought why not  :dealwithit:.

Also for those people wondering where his palette template is; not-having a palette template has been giving me a wonderful feeling of freedom when making Freeza's sprites; I could recolor some colors on his complete sheet whenever I'd want, and add things to the template when I see fit.
So you'd probably have to do without a palette template for a while, at least until I finish a lot more animations.
It will most likely include his power-up aura, of which I'll most likely use the colors for some of his special effects (Death Beam/Wave whatevs).

Thanks guys.
Now for the palette template; It's not here yet because of previously mentioned reasons, but I'll state some facts on it and I'd like to hear your opinions about it:

SHARED COLORS
*eye pupils and nails are shared.
*'eyeliner' and lips are shared.
*the white and purple is shared with these same colors in his previous forms.
*the armor, white and purple form his first form is shared with these same colors in King Cold (who'll only appear very briefly anyway).
*eyes and nails are similarly shared between Freeza, his previous forms and King Cold.
*the armor, black and purple colors are shared with these same colors on his flying chair thing.

SEPERATED COLORS
*eye whites and teeth are seperated.
*inside of mouth is seperated.
*his inner body (when he is cut in half) is seperated.

If you have any special wishes for seperation, like his eye pupils and nails or whatever, let me know and I'll take it into concideration.

The victory pose is win for sure, but a few things seem a little off to me. His tail seems to get thinner at the end and thicker at the front. His right arm seems to darken at the second frame more than it should. And his brow seems to get larger in the first or second frame and shrinks back to normal. Other than those details (and I'm not sure if it was intentional), it looks fine.

Looks like one of Terry's MOTW taunts. I can totally imagine Frieza going all "SAWREE."

Reminds me more of Rugal.  Or more specifically Segalow.

You're welcome man! Happy to help!
Edit:
Holy frick, I noticed a few more things. His ear looks like it grows in the second frame, the area around his nose brightens in the first and second (?) frame then darkens like how it originally was, and the bio-gem on his right arm disappears completely when it goes behind his back.

I'll look into it. In the meanwhile, new attacks!

Post by: BlueSunStudios on April 12, 2013, 09:37:21 PM
Looking good Balthazar! BTW, not here to correct, but I noticed that you changed his nails to red to emphasize that his hands (and feet) are stained with blood from his countless foes. I like that little touch you added to him. Oh, and it's nice to see some more of his attacks done!

Thanks, and I might color-seperate his nails from his eyes when he's all done, so he can have black nails as well.

Post by: ~*Ishida-Uryuu*~ on April 13, 2013, 03:45:22 AM
One criticism, that second animation has it look like his shin is being shaded from a frontal light source and looks wrong. Seems you added an extra lighter shade just for those frames as well.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on April 13, 2013, 09:40:03 AM
I've never really purposely shaded him anything other then from directly above, but I can see one sprite where his tail is lit more then it should. And thet extra lighter shade you're referring to is probably the blur sprite. In that case it's not an 'extra' shade as in, it's the same color as his skin.
You do mean the tail flip animation, right?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on April 13, 2013, 03:18:22 PM
I thought it'd be cool that when you'd hold the button down, he'd automaticly do a second spin...

For the aerial Ki Wave/Death Wave, I think it works similar to how it works in Hyper Dimension..he shoots a small bullet down, and it becomes a traveling wave upon hitting the ground. Not sure yet but we'll see. Animation will likely be reused for Daichiretsuzan, where he cuts p2 in half (if we keep that).
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on April 13, 2013, 05:54:32 PM
Looking good. The bottom right ones tail look fater but it just might be the angle from where the tail is positioned with the arm. Also on that default jumping pose HIS right leg position makes it look completely small due to the angle but I know its hard to do that type of angle with smaller sprites because you cant fit in the other details without making that leg too fat so its just based on IMO.

Good work so far man, this is coming up well done. Sprite wise I can see youve increased in skill because Freeza looks better out of the other two.

Man, Frieza is just looking better and better by the days. Just as we'd expect from a top notch spriters like you Balthazar (though I am aware that Chamat originally made the sprites).
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on April 15, 2013, 01:43:17 PM
Thanks. Here are some more basics: Standing Weak Punch and Kick (the kick is from some SSW sprites + frankenspriting and editing of existing sprites. It may look a little weird but I like it. It could have one or two more frames for recovery but since it's a Weak Kick, I think it's fine like this).
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_sLP.gif) (http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_sLK.gif)

*EDIT

So, I just have to finish his Twist KO and I think animate his fridge state (and revamp it as well), then get-hits are done. Minus cheap KO and time over and dizzy. I've been doing some basic attacks here and there, those are filling up nicely. I've mostly been having fun rearranging stuff in his spritesheet, thinking which bases of Chamat to keep and which to change or use new bases for. There've been a few changes so far:
+Death Star won't be a special move anymore, but a basic move, and a launcher at that (d+SK).
+He won't get the Uppercut special move either, but I might reuse the sprites for something else, maybe his Ultimate, we'll see.
+Still pondering if he should still get his divekicks or not (d+K in air), he already has his diving headbutt special move..
+for his d.SP, I'll probably switch the first animation with the second (below). I don't like the first one anymore.

Damn Balthazar... Your work only improves as time progresses. If I had extra income, I'd gladly support you through donations. Just sayin. Also, I really love all of the nuances you get just right as his animations flow perfectly like water. Capcom should take notice of your efforts. They rock.

I'm looking forward to seeing how all of this will come together once Cybaster gets his hands on coding.

And I'm sure this has been asked a TON, but I gotta ask it here: Perfect Cell. You're gonna make him. Right?? The only reason I say this is because in your hands, he would be absolutely incredible. Him and Piccolo. ;D

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on April 15, 2013, 07:25:31 PM
is he using his own tail as a bat? grabbing it and swinging it down? it looks awkward.
There is a lot of stretch on the anim, wihch is good, but the release goes down instead of forward.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on April 15, 2013, 08:25:14 PM
I think the tail needs to have a more bounce to it for the impact. Looks too stiff. I didnt realized he wrap his tail around his arm until I opened the gif up. so people wont see that detail.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on April 15, 2013, 08:42:42 PM

Post by: AugustAPC on April 15, 2013, 11:01:44 PM
I'll echo the sentiment that it's a strange attack. I love the idea and originality of the attack. It does seem to need some tweaking... I wouldn't have any idea what would make it look more natural, though.

Freeza looks badass as usual. Nothing short of Balth's always enjoyable artwork! However I came to this thread for help. Is there anybody who can tell me how to remove filters(occasional dark and light effects) from a character in Fighter Factory Ultimate? See,with SSJ Goku Z2, in all of his appearances as normal base form Goku,(intros, winposes, genki dama finisher ect) he is given a slight dark tent, that causes his SSJ form to look more illuminated when he transforms.

     Posted: April 17, 2013, 12:18:22 AM
I'm trying to do something with his normal base form sprite's colors. However this dark filter effect is getting in the way. I love this effect and it really makes his SSJ form pop out when he transforms, but they are kind of in the way of my colors. Can anyone help me on how to remove these dark filter effects? Help would be much appreciated. :p Sorry for the bother, and loving the look of "Freezer" Z2. XD

Indeed.

Not perfect but it serves it's purpose perfectly. This is for when he breaks his armor in his first form in the transformation intro.

Seeing how you did spritework of Freeza and Mewtwo staring each other down, consider using this?

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on April 19, 2013, 11:32:25 AM
They might get a special intro or whatever, or a special winpose where Mewtwo shows up to face him.

Alright, time for a little update:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_HenshinWip1_zps892d8d0b.gif) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Tracks2000/media/Frieza_HenshinWip1_zps892d8d0b.gif.html) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/Frieza_HenshinWip2_zps0bf51dc9.gif) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Tracks2000/media/Frieza_HenshinWip2_zps0bf51dc9.gif.html)
(The second animation might be more accurate as to how I envision it ingame)
This is a little part of his transformation, but I might have to redo it (or partly) because I'm leaning towards giving it inverted lightsource after all, like this
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/invertd_zpseeddc121.png) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Tracks2000/media/invertd_zpseeddc121.png.html)
(minus the purple parts; I hadn't recolored those in that image yet).
I've got most of my ideas typed out already, this transformation promises to be very epic. And you know we'll deliver!

For a little status update; I've finished his Twist KO and the Curse as previously posted. So all that's left for basic stuff is Cheap KO, Time Over and Dizzy.
Currently I'm doing a few more basic attacks as well (jumping MP and crouching LK). I think all he needs for standing attacks is his MP, but I still have to figure out which attack I want to give him. The animation below is what Chamat had listed for his s.MP, but the animation might be too 'big' for just and MP. Do you guys have an opinion in this move?

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/b04PchMd_zps51897550.gif) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Tracks2000/media/b04PchMd_zps51897550.gif.html)
Also, I think I'm about ready to make his palette template. This doesn't mean that I'll be exporting frames for Cybaster to use already (minus one or two to use ingame obviously) since the previously mentioned 'freedom' it gives me in his sprites (not having to go back and fixing some nitpicks up without having to export them AGAIN and having Cybaster replace them ingame AGAIN over and over).
His overall movelist has been given little scrapes off the sides here and there, but usually it comes together really well when we are building him.
But I'm trying to envision it as best as I can before hand so I make as little animations as usual that might end up on the scrapheap.
As for that palette template, this is how it looks currently. I'll most likely seperate his eye pupils and nails (so you can have black nails and red eyes), but I think that's all I'll change to it.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Daeron on April 19, 2013, 12:29:57 PM
Awesome progress, the transformation intro will be amazing!

That punch to me its rather a simple strong punch or a foward+medium punch, but not a simple medium punch
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: F. James Fernandez on April 19, 2013, 03:51:13 PM
Awesome animation Balth. This is turning out to be really good. Keep up the good work. That bottom punch needs more frames before the punch comes out. Its really more of a delay you need to show the twist on the hips before he punches. So its twist, step, and punch.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on April 20, 2013, 09:33:49 AM
Yeah I might give him the divekick even if it's only on (in air) d+LK or something, shouldn't hurt.

As for the punch, I don't thing putting it on f+SP will help much, because the move I put for normal SP has even longer range!
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_sSP.gif)
The punch COULD be f+MP but we've never used those commands for any moves in our previous characters, so I don't know.

I honestly can't promise you anything about Mecha Freeza color seperation...I don't think it's worth it and he has more details in Mecha form then here.
Maybe in a year or whatever when he's all finished, the sheet can be color seperated more. Maybe you can do it then :P.

For the transformation, I he looks a little static I agree, but I didn't want to put too much effort into these big sprites as he would have a lot of EnvShake going on anyway, and you'd miss those small animations anyway. I since updated the inverted shading on his legs, and it looks better now then in the image I posted yesterday. But yeah overall it does come out better on smaller sprites (I also did the power-up pose for form 1 Freeza).

And yeah that Readme portrait looks sweet !

Alright I've put my full sheet in Photoshop to patch a few things up (there were a bit more errors then I anticipated, like blank spaces and colors that shouldn't be there), and seperated the nails from his eye pupils. The nails are now shared with his eyeliner though. I didn't want to bother with any more colors. At least you can have black nails now for a more authentic look. The eyeliner's gonna be black anyway, and if you don't want black nails then that's tough luck.
I'm currently working on his Death Star move, which is going to be mapped on his crouching Strong Kick and will be his main launcher. The other move I'm working on his his crouching Medium Punch, which is a double trust (and his crouching punch from Hyper Dimension).
That still leaves s.MP, c.LP, c.SP, c.MK, a.LP, a.SP, a.LK and his focus attack, and that should be all of his basic attacks.
Also I might swap his Close s.LK to his Close s.MK, which requires another Close s.LK I have bases for.

Also for Freeza, don't try any Cooler palettes. It's not pretty. And NO I will not add color seperation.

Air kick looks like the head shrunk a little and seems to lack a little power behind the kick. It might have to do with the way the frames are 9 through 11. kick doesnt fit the way his leg bends before he kicks. not to mention his arms are so stiff doing it too. I know its not a heavy kick but still.

The tail is in the wrong place. its suppose to be on top of his butty, not dead center of it.

That crouch SK feels like its missing something. Right not it just looks like a push. Why not add a minor glow to the palms. Nothing flashy of course. just added detail.

Call me picky or what not, but you should know me by now.

I'm assuming he means a glimmer like fx on the purple crystal like part on his forearm, during the anim.

Correct. Meaning Do a minor glimmer FX to the "PALM of his Hands." That move is basically using his palms >_> how are you lost.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Lunchbillion on April 25, 2013, 12:09:07 AM
I agree with James, it could be like a cool ki palm spark. Would be a lot more interesting than just a shove.

And yeah that launcher is fantastic.

Oh right, it was in no way clear to me you were talking about the d.MP, it sounded like you were talking about the launcher.
I'll see for a spark or whatever :)
*EDIT'
This one's updated now. The tail on the kick frames has been moved up, and the recovery actually has one frame less, it just came out looking better.

They're both so EVIL  :crowngrin:

This takes care of all his basic air attacks. I think the divekick will be just down+weak kick.
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_aLP.gif) (http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_adLK.gif) (http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_aSP.gif)
Also don't mind he still has red nails in half of the sprites. I didn't replace them in these animations, but obviously they are colored correctly in the sheet.
And damn that last animation has a blur, but you can't really see it because of this background color on MFG; it's practically the same.
Take a look on my Mugen page, it has a dark grey background and you can see the white blurs there.
http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/freeza.html
What's left for now are crouching LP, MK (30% done) and SP, standing MP (got bases) and Focus Attack (got an idea for it). That's all basic attacks. Oh yeah df+SK slide kick as well, he'll get that.

Post by: Balthazar on May 04, 2013, 01:41:25 PM
Haven't numbered them or anything, but he's got a bow, a chuckle, a laugh probably, one where soldiers might offer him wine or whatever, and I think that's as far as I thought ahead for winposes.

Post by: Cybaster on May 05, 2013, 01:40:58 AM
From an original voice actor, for which we already have many (all ?) voices.
We'll probably include voices from video games too, so he'll have 3 voices : Japanese (video games), English (video games), English (custom, with many original lines, as we did for Vegeta).

Also, Vegeta's update should be finished pretty soon.
I'll then start working on Majin Vegeta. However, Frieza is so nice I couldn't help but start working on his basics. :D

This is just looking sweet as always. Hey Daeron, is that for one of Freeza Z2's winposes? It looks nice, but there's something odd about it: Only his upper body is getting mucsle maxed instead of his whole body, unless that's intentional?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Iced on May 06, 2013, 05:18:56 AM
Its freeza full powered, he mostly only increased his torso , with his shoulders and arms being particularly muscled out.
(http://media.animevice.com/uploads/1/11232/217795-216676_100__power_frieza_super.jpg)


it looks pretty good, it could make a good winpose or even a good activation anim for his dark force type move.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: BlueSunStudios on May 06, 2013, 05:26:54 AM
I know that, but what about the rest of him? I know that his legs and tail muscled out too. It can't just be his arms and upper torso.

not as drastically.
Even in the 3d games they kept his legs the same size and increased his torso only.
Considering how small he is, increasing his legs in that sprite probably wont look good.

Post by: BlueSunStudios on May 06, 2013, 05:57:27 AM
That's...I don't know what to say about that. I just have a thing against odd-proportioned muscles (especially if the body is small). Honestly though, I get what you're saying, but it just doesn't bode well with me. They either could've made his legs bigger too, or not size up his upper body that much. Why couldn't he be more like his father or brother (in terms of evenly proportioned muscles)?

Post by: SuperGohanSunderland on May 12, 2013, 10:10:11 AM
A small suggestion, but is there anyway you can give Freiza a sort of challenging AI? I can imagine that running into Frieza in arcade mode with Goku would be pretty epic, just as running into Vegeta is. But I can't help but feel that due to the AI given to your epic opponent in this supposely climatic battle, the fight ends up being just a little too underwhelming. However I understand that AI programing probably takes specific skill, so no harm done if you feel the normal AI is most suitable. :p

Just ask ShinSmoke. He does awesome AI's.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Balthazar on May 12, 2013, 12:17:35 PM
I'll probably ask Infinite. He also did the Winmugen AI for Goku Z2. That's not released yet and will be included in an update. Here's a video of me as Vegeta fighting against Goku with that AI.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Cybaster on May 12, 2013, 12:27:29 PM
However, I'd rather not have any AI coded until Vegeta is 100% finished, which means until Majin Vegeta is coded into him too.
AI for Goku was fine since the last updates were more about fine tuning some little things, and he's really finished at this point.

Also, since this is Balthazar we're talking about, the AI is not scalable, since it was coded for Winmugen (not 1.0). :P

OH MY JEZUS! YES! :DD that is awesome programing! If I ran into that Goku in arcade I'm pretty sure I would feel like I'm fighting THE legendary super sayian himself! So you plan on doing the same for Vegeta and Majin Vegeta when they're completely finished, can't wait!

Question, have you guys ever considered making some sort of interactivity between your Z2 characters in a mode? I suppose an example would be: you go to team arcade and in the turn mode say you pick Goku and SSJ Goku. And as you lose with normal Goku, when round two starts, Goku goes SSJ as a neat little transition. Or vice versa for choosing the two in another order where in that case he would revert. (Please note: my terrible examples have been known to kill people due do their complex and retarded structure. CAUTION IS ADVISED)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Cybaster on May 12, 2013, 11:40:06 PM
This kind of stuff is too complicated and really not worth the time and effort.

You already have some big compatibility between Satan and Goku.
You have a special intro between Goku and Vegeta.
You'll soon have special winposes and intros.
You also have back breaker, spin KO, Dash Collision, Beam Collision struggling.

That's already quite a lot of interactivity.
Oh! And fuck team mode. This mode has no interest for me, and any bug happening inside I hate fixing and probably won't.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: SuperGohanSunderland on May 13, 2013, 12:16:30 AM
Well, I see you're very outspoken about team mode CY. XD
 Yeah, I figured it would be a bitch to code.:l  I was actually wondering if that was even possible, with how much work is necessary.
 I guess this is just another example of how ballzy it is that you guys have done already so much with this cast.

Reverse throw, all finished! I went the extra mile to make it awesome. Obviously based off M.Bison's kick/axe throw, with a jumping spin kick added for good measure (the opponent bounces up after the axe kick throw, then Freeza jumpkicks and kicks them away, twisting.
Actually this might be turned into his special move counterattack, I don't know. For a throw it does it's job well.

From saga bosses, my favorite villain is Kid Buu because i like his design, powers, and "insurgent" fighting style. However, I feel that he and Cell, have the defect of being bad at the will of others. Cell was created by Gero to kill Goku, and Buu by Bibidi. Frieza is bad because he chooses to be, and that's really cool; for this reason, I think is the best villain of all Dragon Ball Z.

EX Death Wave finished as well. Launches P2 in the air in order to juggle him.

Aerial versions have been coded too. Freeza basically launches a small projectile downwards, which then moves forward like the regular version once it hits the ground.

Okay, so I toned down the reds and made sure they didn't have too high lumosity, any better?

It's a general thing that you're supposed to edit your previous post with the next one, to avoid your name appearing twice in the post listings.
Also, I guess it is odd that Balthazar hasn't made his palettes yet. Is he failing us in his slave work? :gonk:

Probably the extreme contrast between the reflection of his 'glassy' bits and it's other shades?

Personally it's one of my favorites thus far. I like everything about it.

Probably the extreme contrast between the reflection of his 'glassy' bits and it's other shades?
It's a bit extreme in the first shade because less contrast makes that shade look a bit pinkish, which is fine but ruins the look I was going for. I made an alternate version just for the hell of it although I prefer the first version, but this second one looks good too.

"Do she got a booty" is what I was referencing (out of sheer boredom). And I was sort of hoping it would be a victory pose or a taunt for him.

Finally!
It might need 2 more frames for that extra fluidity, but I guess I'll do those when I REALLY REALLY feel like it, which isn't any time soon.

Animation has minor alignment issues but they're not that noticable. I just think they are there.
(Where it could use an extra frame is before each frame where he puts his foot down)

I personally don't like that queer walk.
Same here. Frieza is a bit androgynous but not enough to do a girly walk that's borderline frollocking. The sprites and animation look damn good like always but I can't see this as being his normal walk. Maybe as part of an intro or winpose but that's about it.

Loving this new walk. I think it fits Freeza mocking the opponent pretty well.
I agree it need 2 extra frames for smoothness though.

This is the same walk with the 2 additional frames (in wip state) added, improves it a ton!

To be fair, they're different persons.

Unless I'm dumb enough to notice that's the entire point.
That is the point, my bad. :sick:

Frieza looks fine, and his walk doesn't have to be changed.

I think the major thing I don't care much for in the new walk is the way his right hand flares up very girlishly when he swings his right arm forward. If it wasn't for that I think I'd be more cool with it.

Post by: TheNOGoodThief on June 22, 2013, 03:23:02 AM
It is beautifully animated but doesn't fit Frieza. While a lot of us questioned his gender at first, it wasn't because of his actions, it was his looks. Frieza was made to look very weak later in the series but remember, originally he was intended to be the end all, be all villain of Dragonball Z. Frieza was cruel, manipulating, murderous and evil creature, especially in final form. While i could see him with a regal walk, the hands open all cutesy like a woman is too much for Lord Frieza. In my humble opinion i agree that his hands should at least be closed.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Viscount on June 22, 2013, 03:31:42 AM
I agree with TheNOGoodThief.

What Cybaster said made me realize that the walking animation is meant to convey a mocking attitude, but it isn't very apparent. Maybe a sly smile would make it look a lot better. It feels like the entire concept would be more well-suited for the walkback animation ('come at me you little sissy!')

Still impressive work guys.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Iced on June 22, 2013, 04:09:34 AM
I disagree with most of you.
The femenine non challant attitude is brutally opposite to his other animations, making him look the most like a cruel little monster.
that he would take time to walk ( instead of dashing, jumping hoovering or anything else) towards you is a symbol of him disregarding his opponent.
He will then, after walking towards you casually, shove his tail into your eye socket and pop your skull out.

and it becomes more brutal when paired with pieces of speech in his creepy ass voice

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/FriezaWalk2wio_zpsc84b15e5.gif)

Freeza is a snake hidden behind a man's face. His body movement needs to portray that somehow.

(everyone allowed to their own opinion tho )
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Shadow0X3 on June 22, 2013, 04:27:23 AM
I'm tempted to agree with what Iced said, but still. Even looking to the anime, Freeza never acted that nonchalant. As nonchalant as he got was waving a hand to blow up some subordinates. As he was fighting anyone who could challenge him (most of the mugen roster, since balance is a thing) he became more serious. Granted this is the walking animation, and therefore won't show up much in a fight, it still doesn't seem to suit him. I'll let this be the last I say on the topic before Balthazar comes and silences us all, though

Post by: Aldo on June 22, 2013, 04:44:37 AM
That moving arm is what bother me the most, that movement is more feminine than flamboyant. Making the movement of that arm less feminine (not move around that much) would solve it.

I doubt it will be changed if Balthazar likes. It thought but it will most likely get unnoticed.

Gonna leave it like it is now, took me too much time/effort to make this to even think about doing another walk.
And if I'm making a new one all you're gonna do is say how lovely it is when it's in progress, and bash it when it's finished, so whatever :P
I might change the right  hand when he swings is right arm forward on this one, but for now it's fine imo.

I'm not saying you should change the walk animation, since I find pretty cool. But, do you consider the Chamat 's suggestion about adding a smile?

Sorry for my english.

Post by: Balthazar on June 22, 2013, 12:39:49 PM
Your english is miles better then most native english users, so don't worry ;)
If you look closely he smiles in the frames with his right arm forward.
I'll wait until I see how it looks ingame before I do any changes.
I'm still suprised how much seeing it ingame can look different from the original sprites.

Post by: Steel Komodo on June 22, 2013, 02:55:19 PM
Gotta say, I disagree with most of you on the walk. I think it's goddamn hilarious and actually kinda fits not only Frieza, but the kind of silly tone the Z2 characters have been going for. I can just picture him saying "Come at me, bro!" as he swaggers towards the enemy, and then BAM! Tail in the face or what have you.  ;P

Been watching this for quite a while, haven't posted until now, so I thought I might as well follow this. Keep the work up, guys! But Chamat's comments do make me wonder - did he already sprite a walk for Frieza to have, or did Balthazar have nothing to go on? If the former, both walks could easily be a config thing, like with Vegeta's voices and so on, if either of you have the time to implement such a thing. Just to stop people from complaining, of course  :)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)

Chamat had Freeza floating forward instead of walking, it's also nice and in character, but we wanted something a little more unique.

Ah, yes, I remember seeing the sprites from earlier. I suppose that, in all honesty, the floating thing could be reserved for a more boss-type character in the Z2 style, like Bills (wishful thinking :laugh4: ). The walk looks fine to me, and in all honesty stands out a bit more compared to floating.

In the end it's Balthazar's decision but i disagree that it fits Frieza. As stated by a previous poster, maybe it fits with TFS Frieza. Visually it looks very effeminate but beautifully animated i must say again. I think, once again as previously stated, closing the hands into fist would solve the issue. As of right now, he looks as if he is two seconds away from skipping.

I agree with NoGoodThief, but I also think you guys are trying too hard to get him to change the animation. Just give up, he's not gonna do it. It's just like what everybody told Balthazar about SSJ Goku's aura. Everybody said it looked bad untill they saw it in-game, and now it looks pretty badass, and adds to his SSJ look. Frieza is supposed to be very princely and feminine. Although I will say I'd prefer a crossed arms walk, I don't think this is quite as far from his character as some think.

vegeta doesn't look gay in his walk hes doing a "haters gonna hate" walk which is fine but this just looks ridiculous, I know hes the spriter but really he should consider how the users (who download the char) feel about it. is there anyway possible balth to add a fly forward anim for ppl to use if they so choose? cause I really refuse to use this walk.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: BlueSunStudios on June 23, 2013, 11:33:58 PM
Flying is overused when it comes to DBZ characters. Frieza needs to stand out from other characters, and walking with arms folded, fisted, and flying would make it look too similar to Vegeta. Frieza is known for fucking with people, and him walking like this is one of the best ways to show how much of an ass he is.

Also, Balthazar does care about what people think, but some of his fans are way too nitpicky and demanding about certain things (often trivial) that he doesn't listen to any of his fans, as what he and Cybaster stated on the Majin Vegeta thread.

To him, killing's a game, when faced with people he knows all too well are weaker than him. The walk fits here if he's facing someone who isn't a Saiyan or Goku, or his family. To him he can just play aound and still win without a problem.

I truthfully and honestly see nothing wrong with how he walks. I also have no problem with Balthazar's decision to keep that walk. Arguing over something like this is like how people would not shut up about Majin Vegeta's eyeliner and the M on his forehead. I can understand if it's a friendly suggestion, but this is not what I'm seeing here. All I can see is unsatisfied grievances over one animation. Not everyone is satisfied I know, but be serious about it and offer constructive criticism instead of flat-out hate.

Post by: Iced on June 23, 2013, 11:51:37 PM
the "previous" walk was a float that was never converted , so it has all the old shading.

Not only does a float looks weird when the run is actually running as someone would actually have to resprite that... you would also end up with a walk animation that is barely animated.

I dont think its feasible , specially seting up a whole config option because some people dont like a walk animation, thats hella spoiled.

Specially something as weird as "he looks like a pussy" as commentary

I was just vocalizing my opinion about his walk then some of you jumped on me and some agreed with me. I never said (you must fix this) I said "please do something" if he wanted to say no thats fine hes the spriter but I am allowed to complain as a downloader of said char yes?

Of all the decisions, this is the only one I dislike. That walk is way too girly, especially because of his right arm movement (it´s the right arm in the gif). Making that movement less girly (it almost look like it does a 135 degree angle) will work.

Well the issue here is that I feel we can't speak different opinions, even Chamat mentioned he was insatisfied, and he is the co-creator, not only him but a bunch of people. Chamat even suggested to edit it a bit, not to do it from zero again.

Plus than that, it is not an original char, the char is from Toriyama, so we the people have the word to say our opinions about it.

There will be a 10€ DLC to get Frieza with a crossed arms walk.
The DLC only costs 8€ if you pre order it now, and comes with an additional bonus palette only those who pre-ordered it will get.

Well the issue here is that I feel we can't speak different opinions, even Chamat mentioned he was insatisfied, and he is the co-creator, not only him but a bunch of people. Chamat even suggested to edit it a bit, not to do it from zero again.

Plus than that, it is not an original char, the char is from Toriyama, so we the people have the word to say our opinions about it.
and the persons doing the spriting have the WORK to do whatever they want.
If balthazar wanted he could make freeza lack walking forward, he would just walk backward all the time.
Just because you can express your "word" ( you can, no problem there ) doesnt mean that someone has to make what you want happen.

I think he more meant most ppl have a view for what the character should be compared to an original char who has no previous backstory so no one can alredy get a feel of what the character is like.

More like voicing it for 50 pages until we comply. Sorry for not noticing the subtle difference. :)

But you'll be happy to know that as Capcom wannabes, we'll comply and make Freeza with his alternate walk as a 10€ DLC, available in the DB Z2 Arcade Edition.
Please head to Balthazar's paypal account right now to get your 2€ discount. ;)

anyway, for those that do not enjoy the walk i have a solution. don't walk. freeza is capable of jumping, dashing and performing several cool attacks. he can even taunt as far as i know. you have many options that do not involve walking.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Laharl on June 24, 2013, 01:50:04 AM
like I said I will probably just on my end change his walk to his dashing anim and slow it down to fit a walking motion.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Balthazar on June 24, 2013, 10:14:52 AM
My initial stance remains unchanged; I won't change the walk until I've seen it ingame myself.
You make it look as if I never listen to anyone's suggestions or opinions, yet that's exactly what we do.
But when these discussions over those kind of things bleed out over 3 pages, you'll also have to understand we're starting to think
"well fuck this".
This is another prime example of such a situation.
I'm very glad of the interest in our characters, I don't think any DBZ characters, or most other Mugen characters even, ever got so much attention and interest from the users here, and that is good. One of the reasons they've become so nice, is the initial vision we've had for these chars
(in it's bare essence: DBZ chars that play as Street Fighters chars), which we've followed through eversince.
We're keeping our original vision in tact.
Hence no ingame transformations or planet-destroying moves, as much as you'll plea for them. It's not going to happen.
So don't get mad when we don't 'listen' to your suggestions.
I also don't like how fast I turn into a bad guy here when not following through on such suggestions.
Spriting a walk cycle is one of the most least interesting things to do
(even if the results are mostly nice and really add character to the, well, character).

As stated by me before: I won't change the walk until I've seen it ingame myself.
The float forward that Chamat did I've had my doubts about because
I thought it wouldn't transition nicely to his attacks (since he's leaned forward).

For my current walk animation; I'm convinced making the hands into fists will make it look very awkward.
I can envision it, and it doesn't look good in motion.

Chamat, I know I haven't really responded to you much lately, and then turning down your Teen Gohan proposal has most likely changed your opinion about me for the worst, but you know more then most how much work shading a full character is, and I'm tied to almost a dozen other projects already, PLUS I don't really like the idea of having two Gohans (of two different ages) in a roster.
At least not for now.
I also don't really like the idea of recycling that many old Goku/Gohan animations like you did, especially now that 'our' Gohan is back on the menu and there are already 2 Goku Z2 characters, you'd be seeing many of the same animations throughout 4 characters!
Lastly It's clear you spend a lot of times on those outlines, so, my apologies.

Well I think the global vision from Freezer varies from country to country, for the latino version a man did the dubbing so when I recall my childhood memories it is awkward to me as a latino to see him feminine, his voice and attitude were different, the videos are the same and I still don't feel it.

It is totally acceptable for the english version and I see why you classify him as feminine, but the most important version that is the japanese one his voice is masculine. So yeah I see the reasons (or part of it).

I get it as a child I watched it in spanish and his voice was not like the english but the way Freiza (Freezer) carried himself and t way he worded things seemed prince like and feminine the english and japanese versions have frieza's voice in a more feminine way

... Yeah no not really, in fact not at all. Or at least, not "manly", it's very uptight and sadistic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khD4Ycl9XcQ). The animation is odd at a glance but it fits alright.

Well, um... I leave this topic for like two days and this happens. o_O

Seriously, though. All this over a walk animation? I've seen some bile and negativity in Z2 topics before, but not on this scale before. I guess I'll have to see the walk in-game before I can judge, but I still stand by what I said in that it suits Frieza and doesn't really need changing. If people really are bother so much by how "homo" it looks, then all I can say is that Fighter Factory still exists, doesn't it? Edit it yourself, if it really gets to you that much :P

Glad to see you're sticking with your guns here, Bath. Keep up the good work!

I agree with the right arm thing, but don't lower it too much. He is supposed to be effeminate and the animations have been nearly perfect so far. Don't let these homophobes tell you it's wrong. Frieza is Frieza and you got to keep it Frieza to make sure he remains himself.

What is with that homophobic shit anyways? It is irrelevant to this thread and it is degrading. Let's move on here.

I wonder if Frieza's Ki blasts will look more like thin laser beams instead of what every other Z2 character has. Who here would like to see that?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Balthazar on June 26, 2013, 01:19:26 PM
There's been minor discussions about his Ki Blasts, from not including them at all (so you'd only have the Death Wave) to having them be like small beams indeed, that's probably what's going to happen. Freeza certainly was a lot more 'beamy' then most other characters, so it'll look nice on him.

I forgot about the Death Waves. If you plan on keeping them along with the Ki Blasts, maybe they could be implemented as Lv. 1 Supers. That's how i'd do it, but i would rather see your take on this.

ive played budokai 2 3, (sagas ugh) , all the tenkaichis, um raging blast 2. in all of them friezas Death wave was a super move it was a "level 2" not sure how I would say it since it comes from budokai and they did meter differently.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: AlexSin on June 26, 2013, 01:55:57 PM
Death beam: 1 power bar;
Death wave: 2 power bars;
Death Ball: 5 power bars
(in Budokai series)

For the Ki blasts, you could make Frieza fire small (like in DB Final Bout) death beams from the fingers, or from the eyes. I don't know what's planned, so this is my suggestion.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Laharl on June 26, 2013, 01:58:01 PM
yep 2 bars it was also very slow and easy to dodge death beam on the other hand was very fast.

Post by: Balthazar on June 26, 2013, 02:58:34 PM
Well we've done Death Wave as a special because I like it and wanted it in,
and we've already violated our "1 projectile super, 1 physical super" rule with Freeza (getting both Death Wave and Death Ball as supers). So yeah.

Probably, but it's not set black on white yet exactly how it'll be used. Either a counter move or part of his Emotion System.

Post by: Iced on June 26, 2013, 03:52:36 PM
initially it was planned to maybe be in as a hyper where he froze the opponent inside a ball, you could then hit the ball to attempt to make it explode before the timer ran out.
But this was kindof really cheap , so its likely it will be a scripted throw as part of a counter.

^ I went for the "pearly" gradient cause I think the dull blue gradient has been done before (I mean there are plenty of color combination submitted already) so I went for a rather unusual tone to bring something different to the table.

You mean Chamat started it before Vegeta and SSJ Goku, After that Balthazar took him not that long ago which is why he is far from being done. I think he'll be done in like 7 months or something.

Not bad at all what you say, but Balthazar is the spriter, projects should focus on the way he wants. Focus on a single character can end being boring for Balthazar.

sorry if my post caused a slight flame there.. wasn't my intentions, and i was under the impression chamat was apart of the Team Z2 o.O guess i was wrong.

umm but like i said wasn't my intentions to start any kind of offtopic or flame.. i think it has greatly progressed since balthazar took lead on this project.. and i'm just eagerly excited to see it released that is all.

I also agree that they should focus on the character that is closer to completion and i'd assume it was Gohan since most of it is a headswap and some extra moves and some moves that were originally already sprited for goku which again is just a headswap.. so i'm also looking forward to this release.. Team Goku is nearly complete :P.

good luck to the team with this :) sorry once again if it causes any type of offtopic or flame.. not my intentions :)

What about this elbow?
His standing Medium Punch is the last thing that still has SSJ Goku sprites (in the char), so when this is finished it'll clean up nicely :)

Yeah, looks good dude. Now it's much less Cammyish. Could use one more frame on the recovery, maybe.

Yeah don't worry about the framecount, these wip animations don't mean much right now.
I make those just with the keyframes, in post I usually add a few frames here and there to make it smoother.

This is a lot more finished. Got rid of all the Cammy frames at least!
Focussing on standing MP  and Dizzy for the moment, then the missing MB sprite and I guess that's everything needed to make him move from 'beta 1' to 'beta 2' (eliminating all still present SSJ Goku sprites, which was the template for Freeza).
Also working on Death Beam. Oh and I shouldn't forget his taunt.

Hey pal, you want to start something? CUZ WE CAN GET INTO A FIGHT RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NO-yeah sorry, I will.
But in all seriousness, violating the 1projectile super, and 1 physical super rule, shouldn't be too bad. I mean, Frieza is just full of long distance attacks in the show. Sure maybe it's breaking the average playstyle of the other Z2 characters just a bit, but it's also nice to get a little flexible from time to time, to make for a more justified character of the anime. But as usual, your vision.

Wouldn't knocking the opponent back be more appropriate for this move? Or the idea is a headbutt to the stomach?? in that case Freeza shouldn't pass through.

Post by: Cybaster on July 02, 2013, 09:51:10 PM
@Iced: Yeah, possible. I'll try that. Almost wondering if it wouldn't be out of place to add some Samurai Shodown blood or something ?

Also, the beam will deal very few damage, I'm thinking something like 110 (Goku's Kamehameha deals 166), to balance the fact it's a 1 hit beam that can pierce through all projectiles. Vegeta can basically launch a Chou Galick Ho, Death Beam will pierce through it and hit Vegeta as if there wasn't even something on its way.

Wouldn't knocking the opponent back be more appropriate for this move? Or the idea is a headbutt to the stomach?? in that case Freeza shouldn't pass through.
It hits P2 3 times, with the 3rd hit sending the opponent into twist KO, much like POTS' Shin Gouki's qcf*2+K in the air. You're seeing the part where he's being sent in the air before twisting.

Maybe about 130 damage? Just a thought.

its too much, its better that he deals little damage with it and its a move you have to use strategically.
I would even lower it to 90 to push the idea that you use it at the end of a combo or in a strategica l situation.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2 (first post updated w/ palette template)
Post by: Sinnesloschen on July 02, 2013, 10:04:44 PM
It doesn't sound like it'd be a good combo ender at all anyways, given how much Z2 chars' damage gets dampened in their combos. I suggested 130 because 110 sounded too low, even for an all-piercing beam.

I think the death beam should have a fatality version like kamehameha

Let me explain it with a little image:

Another idea could be to make the enemy get killed displaying cheap Ko anim, to dramatize things even more

its part of his buyuretsu moveset.

a headbutt that causes wall slam, strong and fast with a slow startup and really bad on block.
a dashing elbow attack ( not a elbow shove , a elbow attack) that has a slow startup but can be linked into other attacks after, giving him a strong opening.


We know what we are doing.

Coding:

-Lv2 Death Beam

Post by: Iced on July 03, 2013, 08:24:41 PM
sure enough.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRn-adJD7X4

this video shows my point ( and a few cool poses for taunts and winposes)

Headbutt charge being a move that shoves the opponent far away when on the ground makes for a pretty spetacular way to deal with someone trying to combo your arse ( look at cell at 5.40)  and when blocked gives him a distinctive flaw  where he can be caught by the opponents attacks.
moves should have downsides and upsides.

Another fun stuff is to headbutt the opponent away gives you time to get in a bit of energy charge yourself or to perform a level 1 to follow them up ( deathball will hit on the ground so you can use that to otg the oponent up )

- The aura needs more contrast, like a lot
- IMO the gray on main Freeza could use a little bit more contrast
- The red in main Freeza needs more contrast in the darkest shades

overall, not bad.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on July 06, 2013, 04:37:11 PM
So I've been testing Freeza for some time now, and I've to say this is REALLY going in the right direction.
I'm really come to like him, and I think we nailed his persona. The amazing custom voice by [still a secret!] helps a lot in this.
I still want him to have a bit of sub-boss-ness, without being too unbalanced or overpowerful ofcourse. Here's some notes thusfar:

-His standing Strong punch his great range, but his crouching Strong punch is a deadly weapon in itself, it covers about half the screen,
 making it one of his best zoning tools. If you catch the enemy with this attack from mid-range, you can still continue the attack by comboing into his EX Death Wave into a launcher, or his Death Beam, both of which are fast long-ranged attacks.

-His crouching Medium Kick hits twice (once the the leg, once with the tail), giving you a tad more breathing room to think and imput your next command to do the best combo for the current moment.

-His Z-Counters are the best of any of the other Z2 characters, especially the punch version, which has a big range and is so fast, you can even succesfully counter fast and weak attacks like a Weak Punch. His kick counter has him doing a slide kick, similar to SSJ Goku, which is better to counter ground moves from a little further away from you.

-He still only has the Death Wave (no standard Ki Blasts) and I think we're keeping it that way. Even if it doesn't cancel out all other normal Ki Blasts (it goes under them and sometimes you'll trade hits, which is kinda fun). His EX Death Wave launches the enemy upon impact, and by pressing UP, you teleport right next to them in the air, allowing you to follow-up with an aircombo or a special or supermove.
Death Wave MIGHT need to be nerfed slightly though, it might recover a tad too fast.
With the EX Death Wave, this means you can shoot it under oncoming Ki Blasts, and when normally you would trade hits, now, if you hit with the Death Wave just before the Ki Blasts impact, you can teleport next to p2, completely evading those blasts! The teleport even works if the EX Death Wave projectile is destroyed mid-screen! Although if this should stay in, we'll have to see. It doesn't work when it's blocked, though.
His air version of the move is also another great zone tool, and you can even use it do destroy blasts shot at you after jumping backwards.

-His Death Beam (Lv1) can destroy ANY projectile instantly (although it doesn't work on all character's projectiles, but at least the Z2 ones). This includes eating through Vegeta's Machine Gun Temper and even his Chou Galick Ho! Damage isn't THAT high to balance that ofcourse.

So he's really coming together nicely, I was even able to beat Vegeta Z2 (the current version available with Infinite's AI, which hasn't been balanced yet), which was nearly impossible for me to beat with Gohan/Goku Z2. And he doesn't even have his Focus Attack yet!
To be honest I don't think there's ANYTHING in this character that people won't like, but I've been proven wrong before.
Oh well, to US, the creators, this is very Best Freeza we could possibly make, and that's what we're giving you.

ps. if this doesn't scream 'zoning' I don't know what does!

I'm complaining about it going under opponents' projectiles. It's just a small peeve of mine and...wait, how does damage relate to what I said? :-\
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Aldo on July 07, 2013, 04:16:37 AM
^ Because you wanted it to deal 130 damage?? whatever let´s drop that. Death Wave always passed under/over/in the middle of opponent projectiles. The first thing that comes to mind is the Tenkaichi series. I like that way cause is supposed to be that way, thought the way of nerfing it would be the recovery time.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Sinnesloschen on July 07, 2013, 04:19:57 AM
I talked about Death Beam's damage back then.

I know, but I'm talking about in standard 2D fighter format, passing under enemy projectiles is pretty annoying and shouldn't happen. It didn't happen in most games because it turned fireball wars into nothing but trading and it just got annoying.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Aldo on July 07, 2013, 04:53:04 AM
In standard DBZ format is ok :P the problem with the move IMO would be if it´s too safe, turning the move into an unsafe would definitely make it less cheap. Dunno, but this is an interesting discussion... I need to see points of view.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Sinnesloschen on July 07, 2013, 05:06:42 AM
Clashing with projectiles would make it less safe IMO because it wouldn't lead to Frieza avoiding all of the opponent's projectiles in EX Death Wave's case since it would cancel them out or eat through a certain amount of them depending on how Cybalth handles it.

Eva 00:

- That Blue tone is pretty bad cause it has a lot of saturation problems. I can´t even see the outlines and most shades are lacking contrast (second & third for example). I suggest modifying that color... everywhere.
- The white needs more contrast except the first & second shades, those are alright.
- First form Freeza skin color needs more contrast.
- Fix that Aura, it has inverted colors.

Eva 01:

- It´s still lacking a bit of contrast on violet & green colors... I see you have a difference of 20 for the violet and the green. Try changing that value (difference) to 24 or 28. Should look nicer.
- First form Freeza skin color needs more contrast.
- Kind Cold Cape needs more contrast.
- Fix that Aura, it has inverted colors.

Eva 02:

- Probably the best, again, the red in main Freeza could use a bit more of contrast from the second shade onwards. Values of 24 or 28 should do it.
- The 3rd to 4th shade of white from First Form Freeza could use a little bit of contrast.
- Fix that aura, it has inverted colors.

Eva 03:

- Whites need more contrast... everywhere (except eyes since I think they´re supposed to look like that, right?)
- First form Frieza is lacking contrast.
- Fix that aura, it has inverted colors

Eva 01 Angel Mode:

- The purple is lacking a bit of contrast, red are alright.
- Kind Cold cape is... ugh, it needs a lot more of contrast.
- Fix that aura, for God´s sake, it´s horrible right now.

Mass Production Eva:

- 1st to 2nd shade & 4th to 5th shade (whites) are lacking contrast.

I did plan to edit Goku's head so he doesn't look down that much.
The angle of both their heads would work if they're closer together, but that would put them in kissing-range  :lipsrsealed2:.
I scaled the base image of Freeza and Goku but because of my style, it became wider, and thus the angles of their had was altered as well,
which I hadn't foreseen. So giving Goku a new head with a better matching angle will fix this.

Freeza has also crossed the +100 palette mark and while obviously we appreciate your contributions, this is when I'm gonna have to ask you to slow it down on those palettes, he's got way more then enough now :)

The walk was in first, but I cut that part at the end.
The walk does work as in the animation shown here in the thread, but you can't really appreciate it in this content, It kinda went under the radar as I edited the video.

The voice is very very sexy and nice, sadly there weren't that many lines implemented yet so you can't really appreciate that either, but I thought it was about time we showed a video of him, it was about time. I guess I can reveal the VA soon...

Looks great, seems like he's going to play nothing like previous Z2 characters. Hopefully his zanzoken is utilized to the fullest like SSJ Goku but not to the point where they have exactly the same mechanics.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: Cybaster on July 12, 2013, 09:38:48 PM
We always try our best to give each character unique attributes that will make him play differently from other Z2 characters.

His Zankoken works no way like SSJ Goku's one. SSJ Goku's was a special move that basically allowed to create your own combos and offered endless possibilities.
Freeza's one are just special follow-ups that occur during certain moves.
- Instead of super jumping after a launcher, he'll teleport.
- After an EX Death Wave connects (air or ground), you can press Up to instantly teleport to the launched opponent.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!

it's on page 60. And nice shot One thing that bugs me about me using more shiny effects, is that death balls tend to not look good. Looking good though. Making me work hard on my own :D.  How is it going to work? hit the opponent for multi hits? anything happen if it hits the ground? like damage to a opponent whose near.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: Cybaster on July 13, 2013, 05:33:48 PM
For now, it works just like Goku's Air Kamehameha.
5 hits projectile, creates a wave if it hits the ground before hitting the opponent, dealing possible hits if the opponent is close enough.
We'll see if Balthazar is fine with that.

Also, this is the Death Ball 25% version (Level 1). He'll get a 50% and 100% version, which will probably have different attributes.

oh thats cool. never thought of doing that, I was just gonna be lazy and have the ball hit the opponent or do the second option you mentioned. lol. Thats the fantastic thing about frieza, he has a huge moveset. Wait till you test mine. :p

I think this ball should be scaled down, its a bit big for 25 percento =P

The Death Ball looks fantastic, and I do agree that it could be scaled down for 25%. It looks a little too large for that.

That has been standard issue with ALL of our chars until now so there's absolutely no reason to think we wouldn't include it.

Death Ball looks amazing so far. I am looking forward to seeing it in action.
In my opinion when compared to all the other effects, the death ball (on the screenshot) partially feels out of place (compared to death wave and death beam). Regardless, it still looks awesome.

Also, Freeza's voice sounds snazzy. It suits him well.  :)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: Erroratu on July 14, 2013, 02:20:49 PM
If he misses and hits the ground,the planet should explode in 5 minutes.
And i think the size of it is pretty normal.
It was big in a bunch of other games,but it was slow as shit there
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: AlexSin on July 14, 2013, 03:57:20 PM
But that is the 25% version, that's why we said that.

Post by: Cybaster on July 14, 2013, 05:23:33 PM
After testing, Balthazar likes the size of the Death Ball. We'll see how we go with the 50% and 100% versions, and change things from there if needed.

Now with Focus Boomerang in your face :

Post by: kakabot on July 14, 2013, 05:30:32 PM
You should make the 25% one around this size http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Izhp0lIjqCw. also would it be possible to make Goku and Frezia be able to have a ball struggle ( yeah yeah I know what I said it sounds gay). Say Goku has a spirit bomb activated and frezia does a death ball or visa versa, would you be able to make it work like Goku and Vegetas garlic gun and kamehameha? Like just a simple command during the startup of the attack would activate the struggle if Frezia had enough ki or Goku had a spirit bomb activated. Because that would be epic!
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: The Sudden Rarity on July 14, 2013, 07:23:11 PM
It'll probably be a standard beam struggle, like it has been with the other Z2 characters.  Freeza will probably use his level 2 Death Beam with the standard f+2P command during superpause.

To be more on topic: is the dust needed in that Focus attack? Maybe you could take that out or use a smaller dust animation.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: The Sudden Rarity on July 17, 2013, 06:03:46 PM
I think the dust animation is fine, gives all the characters consistency.  Maybe if it was in motion it might look better?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: Cybaster on July 17, 2013, 06:06:33 PM
All Z2 chars have this dust on their focus attack, and the animation is so fast it's not bothersome anyhow.

Post by: Wolvegeta on July 18, 2013, 12:25:34 PM
Just saying, it would look AWESOME if Freeza's focus move would be a tail bitch slap.
 
Pretty much like Raditz's (Yes! Raditz!):


Just picture it: Freeza stands there, hands crossed holding back his tail like not giving a single f*ck and suddenly, slaps you/your projectile back, LIKE A BITCH!

Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: BlueSunStudios on July 19, 2013, 05:17:57 AM
I actually like Freeza's Focus animation, though some may say that it is rather lazy to have one animation serve two purposes. The animation itself looks like it could do multiple hits (the kick and the tail) so a two-hit focus attack wouldn't be too much of a stretch for Freeza.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2: first video added!
Post by: kakabot on July 19, 2013, 05:40:49 AM
The two hit thing would be a very sweet idea, especially since you said you were kinda going for a almost boss type character.

and the hot weather turning my activity to just about zero, who knows how long it'd take before he has more speeches in the char.

Ok I finished it! First is the normal version, second is the EX version (which'll have aura that I'm spriting now), both cause a wall-bounce
but the EX version gives you a bigger dismount and allows you to cancel into an Air (EX?) Head Charge! Which in turn causes a ground bounce! (Dismount on EX version should be larger ingame, I didn't do it for this animation because I'd have to realign every sprite if I made the canvas higher).

Yours is not correct.
To make one using Fighter Factory Ultimate (I use it too):
1- go to the palette section:
2- change image (and you select the image, in this case the palette template; in case you don't know where it is go to page 41);
3- set the edit mode to Image;
4- edit the colours;
5- save image (in png);
6- and that's all. Not that difficult. Of course you have to upload it.

The palette should have the organized colour index (like Cybaster said once). Both when you open it and when you make and save it.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: BlueSunStudios on August 14, 2013, 07:49:56 AM
Since you asked, I'll give.

1st Palette: I do love the multiple shades of green and yellow for him. His eyes look really good on him, though I'm not a big fan of the bright red here and there. To me it clashes too drastically against the green (especially his insides). I would probably add darker shades of red to him and King Cold. His aura almost looks mud brown, but that's okay with me.

2nd Palette: I like his shades of pink and purple, but his blue eyes seem a little out of place (maybe because they're so dark colored) and some shades of purple seem misplaced to me. The darker shades could be used for Frieza's insides instead and thw lighter shades for base Frieza and King Cold (who has too much purple if you ask me). His aura seems really out of place and it probably would've fit with your first palette better IMO.

You did good on your palettes. I don't know if I'll make anymore than the one I did, but I'll see about it.

Lightest pink could be a little less saturated ... OR! the second shade should be darker/have more contrast.

In the green one, second shade definitely needs more contrast

This FINALLY takes care of the dizzy, one of the remaining essencials. That second image is part of his characteristic taunt bow, used in intro's and winposes as well as his taunt.
ps. I have now OFFICIALLY set the switch to using Diepod/CvS the Abstract's shading method (filling it with dark, then add the lights, versus first placing the darks). The second image has been done using that method. It's easier and gives better results imo.

The shadow appearing on the tail for one sprite looks odd in the .gif, but that should be fine in game.  There's a single lighter spot showing on and off on the dizzy state's purple section of his torso as well.

Looks good otherwise.

EX Ground Head Charge binds P2 to Freeza (much like Rugal's God Press, only with the head instead of the hand), slamming him to the wall before a wall bounce, from which you can combo.

It would completely hide anyone not thick enough. Maybe make it blink between "on top" and "behind" quickly enough ? (having Frieza at the max sprpriority, and the aura alternating between minimal and max-1) Unless it looks too weird compared to everything else. At least for the God Press-like version, it's probably not worth it for the "hitstun > sends opponent flying" version.

Transparency option? In the cfg have it counted as the same thing you've done for power up effects, and then if it isn't partially transparent, have it flicker between being in front and behind behind, like Byakko said
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on September 25, 2013, 10:31:16 PM
The flicker thing might work. But not transparancy. Like you said you can choose transparancy for all effects in the config. anyway.

And it's funny how you and Laharl haven't made a post in two months on this thread until I said something. Do you get off on this?

In all seriousness, though, that was incredibly lame. Being a fan is like having a penis? How long'd that one take you?

If the guy wants to express his fandom, then what's the big fuckin' deal? It's not like anything he said was anything even remotely excessive, regardless.

"Just goes to show you can't get a better villain than Frieza. And you can't get a better Frieza than Frieza Z2."

I fail to see how this should elicit any sort of dramatic response. Looks like a pretty damn average post to me. If you ask me, you guys are the ones overreacting. God that analogy was lame.

Heh, no offense, but you're the annoying one in this case. I've got two answers for you:

1. Don't read his posts.

I'm aware of that, looking at his history it seems he only posts in the Z2 threads. Sure what he's saying can be annoying since it's putting down others but it doesn't seem like he's doing it harmfully, just holds one creation a lot higher than others and isn't too respectful of the others. He doesn't seem as bad since he seems to be helping out where he can.

He's not done shit. He made a very mundane remark, half of which didn't even involve Z2.

Perhaps he should PM his messages to you prior to posting so you can let him know if he's being too heated.

I hate to belabor a point, but it seems that it's falling on deaf ears.

There was nothing wrong with his post. It was not even remotely excessive.

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on September 29, 2013, 08:27:09 PM
Yeah mean you'd sprite it for Bluestreak? Well yeah I dunno, as far as I'm concerned it's something we're still planning on including.
I think it'll look pretty rad! But I'm not sure, I remember it just felt wrong seeing Goku cut in half like that, I couldn't really get over it, so maybe it should only be included for villain characters? Good characters would just go to their cheap KO anim I guess.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Diepod on September 29, 2013, 08:36:08 PM
no, I meant the alternate mode for Freeza when he get cut in half at the end of his fight.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on September 29, 2013, 08:39:59 PM
Oh you mean where his upper body remains? I thought you meant the vertical cut fatalaty move he'd get.
Oh wow I don't think you ever mentioned something like that. I say it's a go!
Unless, well I don't know how that'd work in Mugen. Somebody should say something before you'd start animating stuff.
Frankly this is the first time I hear about anything like this, there being a cut-in-half-mode. But I like the idea a lot ;)

And even if it's dismissed, it can probably make for a neat special character on it's own, like my FireQuacker project thing.
And nothing prevents you from doing DBZ stuff on your own. We don't hold a patent on it or anything!

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Ness on October 06, 2013, 12:11:29 PM
For some odd reason, a goofy victory animation just came to my mind ...

When Frieza wins, the character stands back up, and Cooler flies by and delivers the finishing blow, then Frieza yells for his father, complaining Cooler is always one-uping him ...

Also ...

After the round ends, Frieza picks the opponent up (kinda like Yamazaki in CvS2, or Oni in SSFIV), with their back facing then and hits the repeatidly ala when he's giving Vegeta kidney shots before he kills him while holding him with his tail.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Quuadvent225 on October 12, 2013, 12:59:03 PM
Just thought of something off topic, is there a chance of his death disc (if given) being able to follow the opponent or being controllable, maybe something like balthz batman bat-o-ring
Also for a win pose how about some foot soldiers come running to him and he tell them to kill everyone to which they run out the screen   
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: BlueSunStudios on October 18, 2013, 06:31:51 PM
That would break him. I saw that they are "varied angles" according to the current movelist on his page (which can change over time); that probably means that they are fired at different angles when executed or function like Goku's/SSJ Goku's Kamehameha.

I can't see his mooks doing anything else other than posing with him for a winpose. They're just so unimportant...
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

Post by: Cybaster on December 14, 2013, 12:30:01 PM
Interesting, sort of like one of Jedah's moves.
If he had just thrown it in front of him to cut the opponent, the move would have behaved like Death Beam, which is not interesting in terms of gameplay. I like your idea.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on December 14, 2013, 12:47:23 PM
Yes, having it act more like a (medium/far-range) anti-air works well I think, he didn't really have a move that covers that area yet.
The concept is for the Weak version, not sure if it's good enough for both Medium and Strong button versions, the original idea was having different arcs, but they just might rise higher into the air with a stronger button.
If he gets a high-to-low arc, I don't really have an animation for Freeza for that yet.
Lv2 will probably stay the same; he creates a disc in both hands and chucks them one after the other.

No problem Wizzy, I'm already making a standing close Strong Punch animation, which is a left uppercut, I can very likely reuse that animation for his 2nd throw by just changing the fist to an open swipe hand :)

Once it hits, it keeps hitting the opponent in place, while freeza is free to move after release.

when on a street fighter gameplay environment you have to take in account how the moves will be, otherwise most dbz techniques become just a X -axis moving thing.

Nice, adds to the creativity of combo and make the move less punishable if blocked.

Also, I dabbled a bit in this intro transformation thing again....
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/henshintest11.gif)
The legs+tail are seperated from the torso, to save precious character size. Next, the torso gets a size boost, then the legs catch up.

It'll have the inverted lightsource throughout the whole thing.

@EVILNEON: Just play as Goku vs Goku in Training mode, and the challenges menu should appear. And to get the password, you must finish kame-sama challenge in less than a certain time.
I have no idea how this little Goku appeared, mind reproducing the bug and telling me how it happened (even use Ctrl+D and toggle through it to give me the stateno of this little Goku).

Also how in the blue hell does freeza seem like a cloak wearing guy :p where in his history would there be evidence of that?

don't answer that, it's going to end up 2 pages of why he should or shouldn't wear it. Just seems weird as hell to me, oh well, still looks cool.

The egg coccoon was a staple of the budokai games, everytime freeza transformed his aura formed a egg around him that hid the model swapping.

I thought it was a reference to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sl-aDnbNFxI), to be honest.

Damn, ninja'd again.

On the cocoon thing, since its purpose was just because showing the actual transformations didn't work in those games, are you using it as an alt. intro for the first form's transforming intro?  Or is he just starting in there then breaks out?

Either way, still looks neat.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on January 08, 2014, 04:28:08 PM
Yes both transformation intros were planned (the full physical one and the 'Budokai cocoon' one).
It's also my 'backup' transformation intro for when I give up on the physical one.

Not only that but one of his Hyper Dimension winposes had him in fetal position as well. It's all not THAT far stretched as you think :P
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Long John Killer on January 08, 2014, 04:33:38 PM
Okay, just clarifying, thanks.

If the full version is turning out too tedious to go through, you can always save it for a future update down the line, you know.  Won't make or break the character, after all.

Just my 2 cents on it.  Mean no disrespect or intention to stop doing it altogether or anything like that.

First time I see some fancy sprite actually use full in a mugen character and honestly I like it.

As for the intros, like that you used the budokai 3 transformation (the purple crystal ball) for the intro.

Thank you :) Yes the crystal bubble transformation is so fun, it has something about it.
(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_DancingElbow.gif)
This is now finished, actually has one frame less on the recovery, it looked better without it tbh.
I think this takes care of all his sprites, at least the attack ones.
As for Finishers, the Super Torture Beam reuses Death Beam sprites, Daichiretsuzan reuses Air Death Wave sprites, and Super Nova the Death Ball ones,
so I don't think I have to do much for those besides fx.
So it's mostly intro/winpose stuff that is still required to sprite.

Yes, hopefully once Gohan is finally released, Freeza'll be done as well in not too long. Should be possible to have him done this year or even the first half of this year, he's actually quite far done already. Just missing;
-close s.SP.
-Dancing Elbow +EX version (if it needs it).
-final tweaks for Death Ball (ball staying on the ground a bit), when that's done, Lv2 and Lv3 which should be easy (just more hits).
-Death Saw, Lv1 and Lv2, this should take quite some time though I think. (all three button presses cause a different arc for the Saw).
-Death Charge (Lv3 ultimate super headbutt even though he uses his fists to strike not his head).
-Taunt
^all of the above is sprited already, just needs to be coded.

-Sadism Mode
-All Finishers, which I think don't need much new if any new sprites at this point.
-more Intros and Winposes, some of which are sprited already.
-I need to finish the sprites for his bigass, badass full transformation sequence, which is super involved.
-add moar sexy Shocky voices.

That's very nice looking, I vaguely remember seeing it but it was a while ago.

So when you sprite the transformation, are you spriting it form 1 -> form 2 -> form 3 -> form 4, or do you just hop around and sprite different parts in the sequence and then modify them later so that they match.

He said base mode, so I think he means the form 1 one. But he's just as tall as form 4, in the sprites form. I think he's about the same size in the manga/anime. Anyway, no reason to come up with comparisons, I am not going to redo those sprites anyway ;).

I'm getting curious... what does Z2 mean?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Cybaster on January 21, 2014, 10:14:28 PM
That's an old question, so the answer may be buried in a very old topic. :P
Balthazar started spriting a Goku a few years ago. He hadn't really defined his spriting style yet, and started with sprites a little smaller than the regular size. These were Goku Z sprites.
Then, he resprited them at a more Street Fighter-ish resolution, as Goku Z2. That's when I came in and started to code him. From there, all our chars were created with the same spritestyle and gameplay, which we called Z2. If one wants to be anal about it, one could say that seeing as Balthazar resprited Goku entirely at least twice since then, our style should be called Z4... but whatever. :P

Balthazar, when you'll send me the sprites for this intro, once you're finished, just send me all the frames of the animation in order, even if many of them appear twice. Fuck optimisation at this point LOL.
Would also be great if you could send me the number of ticks each frame has to stay on screen (a simple text file or something). :)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: BlueSunStudios on January 21, 2014, 11:06:13 PM
Mind blown here. Really can't wait to see it finished. And yeah, I've thought about why the characters were called Z2 considering all of the sprite styles Goku went through, but I don't really mind too much.

Sees animation, *almost choke on my vanilla coca-cola not trying to spill some on the keyboard*.
But that tail, is it supposed to grow instantly as soon as he gets big or you just said f it? Not that I care so much, just asking.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Long John Killer on January 21, 2014, 11:20:30 PM
It does grow slowly for a bit, but it does suddenly jump to a bigger size as well during the transformation, and in my honest opinion, it looks better doing so.

Would also be great if you could send me the number of ticks each frame has to stay on screen (a simple text file or something). :)
So if you don't care about optimisation anymore, you don't want to have the tail seperated or the legs seperated at the beginning? I should just compose all the frames without having you have to add seperate sprites pieces? Sounds easier indeed. SFF might get beefy in size that way but as you so wonderfully said: 'Fuck it'.
Having the big tail on all the sprites will make my spritesheet crazy large though. I guess you can have the tail added seperately, if even only at the last bit (where he goes from form 2 ~ form 3, his lower body will be static all throughout thus you won't have to move the tail at all).
Same for his form 1 powerup though, his lower body remains static until he starts to grow his legs. I could add the tail for those sprites, but leave them out for the static poses.
Btw I also finished recoloring his stomach on all the frames (like Walt pointed out in my Graphics thread, the shading was inconsistent there).

Yes, he has been progressing slowly but very nicely.

Quick update: I finished the shoulders forming for form 3. Now I'm doing the head transforming from form 2 to 3, I expect this to be the most fun part. I'll have to redo the cracks appearing at the end of form 3 before his cocoon breaks because I redid that sprite, but that's no big deal.
I will likely not post anymore animated gif or image updates from this point on, so you're not completely spoiled before seeing it ingame!

Are you going to combine the Budokai cocoon with the transformation from form 1 to 2 to 3 to Perfect?
In the anime I recall that the form 3 was like a casing, it gets destroyed, a big light and the last form appeared. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=zGdFXUJ1o1U#t=248)

Post by: Balthazar on January 24, 2014, 02:45:16 PM
Alright, the thing should be all done now, sprite-wise. The head transformation is complete, I added a seperate piece for the spikes on his back growing, redid the cracks leading up to his form 3 shell exploding. There are sprites of his full form 3 body minus the purple pieces; like in the show and instant before the flash of light engulfs the screen, you can see those purple glassy bits explode and shatter.
Now all I have to do is export all the sprites, as pre-compiled as possible for Cybaster.
I WILL leave some pieces seperated like his tail animation, but only if it's easy (or seems to to me) for him to match them up properly.

The whole thing takes up about 1/5th of Freeza's spritesheet (which like the other Z2 chars is so big it doesn't even show fully when zoomed out as far as possible in MS Paint)!

It's just stuff that's added to my thoughtload (if that word makes sense) and I can't use it. It just makes it harder for me whenever he would be released and I'd want to add sprites. It's the same for SSJ Goku, now it gets madly in the way would I want to updated some animations, I'll have to concider the newly added color seperation.
And indeed, it doesn't even look like you read other people's posts at all, you're just so damn ignorant. STOOOOOOP IIIIIIT.
If you want to help us Z2 lads, punch yourself square in the face, take a seat, and shut the hell up until things are released. THANK YOU
Because how things are going now, each time I check my threads and I see you've replied I can just sigh and groan, it actually affects me in a negative way. You're working AGAINST US.
And if you keep on posting, ignoring the things I've just said like you've done before, I might be inclined to make more drastic measures.

It won't be hard to add as long as you put the sprites in the right order, give me a file with the right timing AND ESPECIALLY not ask me in 3 months to add various sprites in the middle of the other sprites for more smoothness in the animation, as well as update half of the sprites, which appear several times throughout the animation. >:)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 02, 2014, 10:10:21 PM
Nah I don't see why they'd need updating, I'm happy with them as they are.
I did add one frame in that form 3 animation, to cover the slight jump you noticed :)
Here is the added readme for that tranformation quoted so you know what you're in for:

A   = form 1, idle into powerup loop
B   = growing right arm
C   = growing left arm
D   = growing torso, collapse
E   = growing full body into form 2 powerup loop
F   = transform into form 3

*general note; think of overthing in loops of 3 sprites (since the leg+tail loop is 3 frames). the order of the sprites is the correct 'shaky' order.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A 001      = display for a while, at least 3 seconds I guess, perhaps he even has some things to say in this sprite.

A legs 001~003    = this looping animation is played all the way through B, C, D once it's being displayed. Only the torso sprites will change in those sections.

A torso 001~003   = these are played for maybe 4 seconds before proceedinig with the arm growing. In this pose you'll also play with the bursted torso armor/shoulder pads explods.

B right arm grow 007~009    = played for maybe 3 loops / 2 seconds before proceeding to C left arm grow. not such a long delay. he's just getting started!

C left arm grow 007~009      = played for maybe 3 loops / 2 seconds before proceeding to D torso grow. not such a long delay. he's just getting started!

D torso grow 009      = after this frame,  the A legs loop dissappears; from here on the sprites have both the torso, the legs and the tail.

E collapse 007~009      = displayed for maybe 3/4 seconds. after this, he goes all the way to form 3, there's no stopping him anymore!

F master grow 027      = watch out for the alignment jump that happens from this point on (his tail would be cut off the canvas otherwise so I had to move Freeza)

F master grow 027~032      = this 6-frame loop will play for maybe 3/4 seconds, after this he tranforms to form 3.

G xenomorphin legs+tail 001~006   = this legs+tail set will play all the way through the end of the G series until he gets a full-body composite at the end. Also, get your mind set on 'sets of 2' for this series (rather then 'sets of 3').

G Xenomprohin torso 011~012      = loop this for just a little while before going into the form 3 head transformation, no longer then 2 seconds though.

H Xenomorphin torso headless 001~002   = this 2-frame loop will be played for the rest of the H series, which are all just neck+head pieces that fit on top of these 2 sprites.

H Rear Spikes            = these snugly fit in the same crevice that you align the head/torso sprites to. Just remember to put these BEHIND the torso sprites. Keep looping 013~014 until the end where it changes to the fully-composited sprites.

H Xenomorphin head+neck         = this is the best part of the whole transformation! As soon as your reach 042, the last frame, jump to the Fullcomposite frames and keep looping those. If you aligned everything correctly, the transition should be completely seamless. So basicly, as you reach the point of 042, remove the torso, neck+head and the rear spike sprites, and replace it with the fullcomposite sprites.  Only the seperate tail animation remains through the very end, so leave that be.

I cracks            = After displaying the fullcompisite thing for about 5 seconds, start displaying the cracks. The sprites contain the upper rim of his um underpants, to help you with aligning them. Each Crack sprite should have a delay of at least 0,5 second. Very quickly after the last crack sprite, continue with;

J breaking up            = Loop the two fully composited sprites with the cracks included, and the purple glass bits of Freeza removed.  You'll be using the debries code to stick a whole big bunch of those glass shards on where his purple bits used to be, and explode them away. This will look mighty impressive! To make it even more dramatic, you'll only display him very briefly once the glass is shattered. The screen will be engulfed in white very quickly (using Goku's SSJ 3 transformation code i guess, it has the same glowing white ball thing).

Afterwards            = when the full white screen slowly fades away, Freeza will be kneeling in his LandFromHenshin003 sprite (that will be used for the alternate transformation intro, the bubble one). He probably has a speech here! Then he just using his normal get-up-from-crouching animation to get up to his Idle. EPIC!

Post by: Cybaster on February 03, 2014, 01:02:02 AM
What I actually wanted was just an extraction of the full animated GIF showing the whole transformation from start to beginning, without the effects.
Then I wanted my text file to looks like this (without caring if sprite 1 and 10 and 26 and 456 are the same) :
Code:
sprite   ticks
1           2
2           2
3           5
4           3
5           2
6           3
7           2
8           4
...
1468        5
1469        3
...
:(
The value of the ticks would have just been extracted by Balthazar from the animated GIF he made. Hell, he already made several parts, so he has the number of ticks for each sprite.

And then I would have added the effects over the sprites.
It actually doesn't bother me a bit if part of the sprites are static and take some huge space throughout the animation. As said, it's not like it was going to add 50MB to the SFF ...

PS : I usually never listen to what Balthazar tells me in terms of timing. He keeps saying stuff like "3/4 seconds", when I actually end up playing it for 1 second, only to have him say "it's played too long, make it shorter!" :haw: So yeah, that's why I wanted my exact timing in terms of ticks, so I don't spend hours guessing what Balthazar wants (since he already knows what he wants from the animated GIF). :(

I personally disagree. While I'll admit that move was pretty evil and played a major role in the series, I find the Death Beam barrage to be far more fitting. Not only to his character, but as a lvl 1 finisher. We've already seen Z2 do a "make you go boom" attack with Vegeta's Dirty Fireworks finisher. Frieza loves to extensively torture his foes, and we can definitely see that here in his face. I mean just look at the guy! Clearly he's getting a serious kick outta this. :devilish: Anyway, I don't know maybe they'll still use it in a different one, this is just me.

So I see lots of progress is being put on Frieza too. Are you guys planning on a double release? That would be really awesome.

SuperGohanSunderland I totally agree with you, this Freeza already has the best possible moveset though i thought about the "make you go boom" more like a winpose when he wins all the rounds of a match.
That would definitely fit his sub-boss style to make the player disappear like he was nothing to the evil tyrant :p

Didn't Balthazar already sprite some sliced in half sprites for existing Z2 characters? Maybe if it's a Z2 character you could use those and for all other characters without them you could use the one on the left.

Post by: Speedpreacher on February 08, 2014, 03:22:24 PM
If the body's going to stay there, the first one is better. The second one would be more radical if the body vaporized, but seeing the two halves of the body is kind of like an awkward pause at the end of a sentence.

That would be too much work (and pointless) in my opinion, the one on the left is better since it would work with most characters that have a sprite when they die when blocking.

Yeah but in my opinion it seems a little bit pointless to do some work just because you want to have 2 different animation for the same finisher based on which character you're facing.
In the end, it is their choice to do what they want with the characters.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 08, 2014, 04:44:08 PM
The first one might be better because indeed it might actually not need new sprites.
It actually has that sprite seperated in two pieces (one overlayed on top of the other) with the fx inbetween those pieces.
But if we cut the fx in pieces and put one in front and one behind, there's no need for people to make new sprites for their chars.

Anyway for the second, SamSho and Darkstalkers chars would already have the sprites ;)

They have done similar things in the past already. That's the beauty of mugen to begin with, the multiple little details you can add to a character. Besides, coding that extra detail is a two minutes max work.

I agree with red there on checking the character for compatibility. I personally favor the second animation.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on February 08, 2014, 07:15:25 PM
I favour the second with the first used for non compatible.

However your chars already have a cut in half state, this one is a cut by the "waist"  state , darkstalkers characters have both, would this mean you would have both as well ?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 08, 2014, 07:34:32 PM
Actually they get cut more like this (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/cut_zps7c784f09.png) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Tracks2000/media/cut_zps7c784f09.png.html)

And to be honest the second isn't that much work, the first cut body is in going to be in silouette anyway, so just getting a sprite and cutting it into two pieces (adding some mass to one of the pieces) isn't that much work, the other sprite needs a bit more work since it's not in silouette (which is just the dead sprite cut into two pieces and some mass and innards added to one of the bits. I use the darkest shade of his mouth-inside colors to show his blood/innards but for chars that don't have mouth colors, the darkest skin tone will suffice I think). You can sprite it in like 10 minutes!

So yeah for anyone who'd want to add the custom state/sprites, very little effort. And the first should work for non-compatible chars. I mean the overall behaviour shouldn't change I guess?
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Iced on February 09, 2014, 04:03:06 AM
I kinda think we should aim for a bit of simplicity.

Yeah some od the darkstalkers get cut in half without slicing the head either.
Check it out:

(http://i.imgur.com/GM8qCwD.png)

At any rate, i think that cut you got there is darkstalkers "sliced at the waist" style.

I checked out the slice in half you had before and its really not the same type as those, those you fall to the ground and then you separate, while the ones you did had them cut vertically in half and then explode.

I figure that to adapt this one move you use the slice at the waist style, so basically adapt your frames that way. ( well whoever is coding it ) .

I agree with TheSnackist and Speedpreacher. It seems like a lot of work incorporating the second one, with the opponent being shown in half in all, but if it's really not that big of a deal for you or Cyb to code in like you say, I suppose it's a matter of personal preference. I personally think both should be left to the choice of the user. Either way, that's a cool finisher.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

As you can see, Darkstalkers also has split down the middle, which is closer to matching Freeza's attack you sprites.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: TRUEMicah on February 10, 2014, 03:32:28 AM
As SpeedPreacher said, there would be more of a "wow" factor if the bodies were to be cut in half and then vaporized into oblivion.  Compatibility with DS chars would be awesome too though. 

Disintegration could be Z2 exclusive IMO.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 10, 2014, 10:10:30 AM
Thanks, yeah the two cut halves are definitely more visually wowing, though I think having the halves lie on the ground afterwards is even stronger then seeing them vaporized. I mean having them vaporized kinda nullifies the meaning of them being cut in half ;)

(http://network.mugenguild.com/balthazar/images_frieza/Frieza_DeathCutv1.gif)

This one would be awesome, it could easily become a mugen standard by just taking a GetHit sprite of any character, and erase half of it through the vertical middle, which would require veeeery basic knowledge of 3D proportions. I like this.

Edit: For example...

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: walt on February 10, 2014, 05:53:52 PM
Well, in general it would catch on if it was worth the trouble (which I'm not saying THIS ISN'T THE CASE) but I think mugen should be about trying to be imaginative with the existing standards, like you guys (we? remember?) did with the Kamehameha Fatality, Black Silohuettes and so on.

Now, maybe if you could go around to Creators' WIP threads (active guys from around here, JMM, Koopakoot, Vans, Divine, Quickfist, Chazzanova, etc), and GIFT them with the 1 required sprite you made yourself for their WIP, and a plan ("we're using State### or VAR(#)") it'd be easier for them to implement and see if it catches on :P
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 10, 2014, 05:55:34 PM
Haha we'll see, sounds like a plan, somewhat. Though I don't like the fact that it comes down to more work for ME in the end (though this edit would be rediculously easy tbh)!

Actually it would be more something like this (you didn't edit the other half)
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/Tracks2000/morelikethis_zps79b62cde.png) (http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Tracks2000/media/morelikethis_zps79b62cde.png.html)
I edited the arm from the other half away, and obviously used the darkest skin tone to show the innards (though if it's gonna be as in my example, the parts would be in silouette anyway). It's mainly the dead/lying sprite that would need this editing.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: walt on February 10, 2014, 06:10:00 PM
Not needed, because you'd only need the front half to cover the beam going through them. That's why I only quoted the 1 GIF I agreed on, the one that required the least work!

Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: walt on February 10, 2014, 06:16:07 PM
NOW, I was in the King's chair a few minutes ago, and just figured... HOW ABOUT! instead of sectioning the opponent, you section the effect itself, or the hitspark? Use one of the GetHits with alignment around the midsection, to calculate that the beam goes through "near" there, and it doesn't look completely out of place.

That's how Reu's E.Ryu Shun Goku Satsu follow up fatality works. He cut Ryu's arm, and positioned the rest of the arm in the BG (Ryu w/cutoff arm Layer1, Opponent Layer2, remaining half of the fist Layer3). That same way, you could cut the FX in half, with some generic shape in the middle (not exactly cut off in the middle) so it doesn't commit to 1 kind of "3D body". Hell, there could be like a collision hitspark in the middle, behaving erratically to avoid the commitment.
Title: Re: Freeza Z2
Post by: Balthazar on February 10, 2014, 06:18:47 PM
Yeah seperating the fx for a front+back piece has been suggested by me before. And oh I kinda missed you quoted that first example I posted. I thought it was generally agreed at this point we were going for the second example :P
But yeah if it's the first, no new sprites are needed, just the front+back fx pieces.

So yeah those Kyo examples you did, that's exactly what I did with Vegeta in that first example ;)
Title: Re: Freeza Z2

I know! :P

I thought it was generally agreed at this point we were going for the second example :P
This is the paert that I missed. I just saw 2 examples and thought "#1 is easier for everybody".

Again, my whole point was that the FX front and back seems like a more universal solution, and if you think it'd look too simple, I was offering ideas on how to make it look less generic. Just thiking outside the box here, to avoid trying to implement new standards that people won't follow, and to help you avoid that sense of defeat when the new standard is ignored.

I'm all for building community, but I'm also even more ALL FOR being inventive with the existing standards. Only 1 guy will have a hard time coding that, only once.


Hey @Cybaster: did you ever actually implement this into Goku Z2? I never downloaded it to check :-X

Yup, I did that the moment you suggested it, and it works on pretty much any character now (even huge ones such as Hauzer and stuff). :)

This should give you a taste of Finisher 1: Torture Death Beam.

Sorry for being so late on this, but i think it would be pretty cool if this still continued even after the match was over, kinda like Quan Chi's Fatality in MK9.

Hows dancing elbow going to work?
By the looks of it seems like a very fast arpoaching move with combo potential (Like Vegeta elbow)

I hope his ground Headbutt attack will gain some buff to diferenciate it from this one, because i think this elbow looks better.

Aniway liking these 2 new attacks so far, superior dance kinda reminds me to Bison(dictator) kicks super :)

-Edit when i saw your edit-

Laught animation looks neat, this reminds me on a way to improve one of his winposes (ill talk about this with you later)

Move concept looks unique, but kinda hard to balance, ill say stick it as a phisical counter, it will be very usefull for countering Ssj Goku justice mode.
(imagine both chars teleporting like crazy)

dancing elbow evades at first, with a rotation, having a small period where he twists on himself, then dashes out. its comboable out of, but not really into. 
Its a tool for starting combos, so it hits very weakly.


Btw in that eyebeam he only teleports if he hits, so he can keep comboing.
