Title: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Miles07 on April 17, 2009, 10:48:16 pm
Here's the list. And the key for this list:
Green means it's already TMC-style.
Blue means it's easily editable to be in TMC style.
Yellow suggests other possible ways of doing this foe.
Red requires customs from scratch.
* = not taken yet.
x = claimed; W.I.P.
X = completed and submitted.
Bolded enemies come in multiple varieties, each holding different enemies.

Minibosses:
* Rolling Bones
* Hinox
* Dodongo Worm
* Cueball
* Stalfos Warrior
* Smasher
* Grim Creeper
* Vire
* Blaino
* Stone Hinox
* Large Buzz Blob
* Gohma - use FSA-styled sprites, if possible?

Non-dungeon Guardians:
* Great Moblin
* Large Armos Knight
* Turtle Rock Turtle

NIGHTMAREs:
* Moldorm - Use FSA-styled sprites, if possible?
* Genie in a Bottle
* Slime Eyes
* Angler Fish
* Catfish / Slime Worm
* Fascade
* Evil Eagle
* Hothead
* Giant Hardhat Beetle

FINAL:
* Shadow Zol
* Shadow Moldorm - Use FSA-styled sprites, if possible?
* Shadow Agahnim
* Shadow Ganon
* Shadow Lanmola
* Dethl

Have at it.

That actually looks really good :), I changed a few small things:
(http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/2783/boss.png)->(http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/7178/genie.png)

The hands were kind of off compared to the arms so I moved those, then I made his tongue a different shade of red and changed the color of the ball hanging off his cap, and added a few lighter spots to the pink around his neck and hands. Thats the only stuff that I saw was off though, if you could make animations for it then that'd be awesome :)

Deku, that's a pretty awesome sprite!
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Jeod on April 21, 2009, 08:52:45 pm
Now the question is, will the sprites have a more advanced animation, or just be a two or three frames like the gbc?

Thumbs up, Deku!
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Ryuza on April 22, 2009, 12:04:17 am
I'd suggest a more advanced animation to get the MC feel.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Miles07 on April 22, 2009, 05:10:02 am
Definitely good. In that case, I'd suggest contacting Shyguy Grey at The Spriter's Resource about ideas. He wanted to make a complete remake of the sprites and the enemies for LA, so he's a good person to look to for ideas.

Post by: Deku_stick on April 22, 2009, 02:29:23 pm
I'm real bad at animations so I will just make the basic stuff

Wow, really impressive.
Except that outlines are not all black in mc, that's amazing.
And it's easy to fix.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Jeod on April 22, 2009, 06:22:26 pm
Animations shouldn't too hard to do if we have a base. But what about the sword for the skeleton?
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Ryuza on April 22, 2009, 07:18:23 pm
those look really nice deku, the giant mini-boss looks awesome.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Jeod on April 22, 2009, 07:30:13 pm
Agreed. If the Armos Knight has the same fighting style as the one in LttP, then why not just revamp that one?
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Xfixium on April 22, 2009, 10:45:40 pm
Made a Rolling Bones some time back, it might help.

Looks pretty good Xfixium :)

Here's my contribution =P
I barely sprite so it might not be the best, but I tried my hand at the Slime Eyes(the outline needs some work). Now edit it to hell XD

Post by: Kren on April 23, 2009, 01:22:33 am
hmm I like them all but they aren't mc style, the need more mc perspective :P.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Jeod on April 23, 2009, 01:26:36 am
Oh? Maybe we should put them in mockups and see how they fit then.

good enough?

Post by: Mamoruanime on April 23, 2009, 10:29:08 am
The anti-aliasing on them seems odd even for MC style. MC uses a mix of dark outlines with light outlines. Those have all dark outlines.

Honestly though for proper crits, I would say post them on http://pixelation.wayofthepixel.net/ . They'll be able to give advice on getting them to a near professional state.

hmm doubt wayofthepixel-ers like fanart, I would prefer to get some top of the top GBa spriter for help.

There's Facade, but you might want to make a few recolor touchups. The blue doesn't really blend well with the carpeting, and since it's just a revamp you might want to change his size to be a bit bigger.

Well not if you present it as such. They didn't give me a hard time with my Raziel sprites :p

In the end, in order to save time (and work and effort ::) ), revamps may be what will be needed to fill the gaps. Of course, it'd help if the revamps were (1st) shaded like TMC-style, and (2nd) edited to come closer to TMC style.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Jeod on April 24, 2009, 07:20:45 pm
I thought it might help more if people could get a refresher on what boss goes with what name. So I'll start the list...

Minibosses:
* Rolling Bones (1st dungeon miniboss)
* Hinox (2nd dungeon miniboss, the cyclops)
* Dodongo Worm (The black crawlers with huge mouths. You have to shove bombs down their throats)
* Cueball (? Don't remember this one. I assume the 4th dungeon's miniboss)
* Stalfos Warrior (5th dungeon's miniboss)
* Smasher (? Don't remember him, but 6th dungeon's miniboss)
* Grim Creeper (The skeleton dude in the 7th dungeon)
* Vire (The red bat in Turtle Rock)
* Blaino (The punching guy who guards the magic rod, in the 8th dungeon)
* Stone Hinox (Color dungeon, the rocky dude who pounded the ground and caused boulders to rain)
* Large Buzz Blob (Color dungeon, guarded the boss key)
* Gohma (I thought he was only in the Oracles?)

Non-dungeon Guardians:
* Great Moblin (The guy who stole BowWow)
* Large Armos Knight (The guardian in south face shrine)
* Turtle Rock Turtle (The guy guarding the 8th dungeon entrance)

NIGHTMAREs:
* Moldorm (Worm dude in 1st dungeon)
* Genie in a Bottle (Who can forget him? 2nd dungeon)
* Slime Eyes (The blue-ringed one with the eye in the middle, 3rd dungeon)
* Angler Fish (The piranha, 4th dungeon)
* Catfish / Slime Worm (5th dungeon, used hookshot to pull him out of the wall)
* Facade (The face on the floor)
* Evil Eagle (Who can forget him? 7th dungeon)
* Hothead (The flaming face jumping from lava, 8th dungeon)
* Giant Hardhat Beetle (Color dungeon boss)

FINAL:
* Shadow Zol (The jumping one)
* Shadow Moldorm - Use FSA-styled sprites, if possible? (Clone of 1st boss)
* Shadow Agahnim (The wizard from LttP)
* Shadow Ganon (Ganon from LttP)
* Shadow Lanmola (?)(I don't recall this one)
* Dethl (The final form, kinda like Vaati)
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Miles07 on April 25, 2009, 01:17:41 am
Gohma's there. Trust me. 5th dungeon, I think. You take it out with a few arrow shots.

I forgot Normal Lanmola (Guards Angler's Key in the Desert area).

Shadow Lanmola is just the shadow Nightmare that you have to shoot with the Magic Rod to beat.
Smasher is the miniboss where you have to throw the large sphere onto it to damage it, but it can do the same to you.
Cueball is the large creature that goes around the room in straight lines at a time. You have to runs around and slash him from behind to get him.
And yes, I thought Dethl and Vaati were very similar...

Post by: Jeod on May 06, 2009, 02:59:17 pm
So what's going on now?  :huh: No activity for a few weeks. In four weeks I'll be free of school, so I can work on animations from base sprites.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Ryuza on May 06, 2009, 03:01:52 pm
At the moment I think that everyone who is working on the project is either coding or gathering usable resources (check mammy's resource thread to help with that).
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Jeod on May 06, 2009, 03:03:52 pm
Ah yeah, I should have attributed the resource project to the lack of activity. Still, the Resource thread has become a community project in itself, no?
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Ryuza on May 06, 2009, 03:06:11 pm
seems like it, not thats a bad thing though. anyway we should post there rather then remaining off topic here.

Agreed.

Title: Genie in a Bottle
Post by: kakashiblackops on October 08, 2009, 04:03:12 pm
Does anyone have an MC sprite for the big blue pots that link jumps into. I could make the genie's bottle. :D I am new here and I want to help.
Title: Genie's Bottle
Post by: Dark-Hylian on November 11, 2009, 04:56:36 pm
Hey, I'm not too great of a spriter, but I did happen to have a Genie's Bottle from Link's Awakening in MC style. Not too good, but you can edit all you want.

hey i kinda took some of the boss sprites and revamped them like the clown guy and the rock head with 2 hands (don't know his name).
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: zeemo71 on February 03, 2010, 06:49:34 pm
i posted the sprites i revamped on my DA page if this project or anyone else wants these

There is others too!

At the moment this project is on hiatus. At least untill we get a decent enough engine to work with. But progress has been that big, any help is always welcome though.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: zeemo71 on February 03, 2010, 07:48:25 pm
well maybe we should continue the project like for the graphics while we are waiting for the engine, i mean i'm working a game zelda and pokemon but i don't have any programmer.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Diminish on February 04, 2010, 01:16:21 am
About continuing the MC Link's Awakening whatnot for graphics, if there was a team put together to work on it then it'd be considered; namely if you could get RyuKage2007 and maybe one or two other spriters together. Looking through some of the stuff you did, some of it is just edits of other users' sprites while others aren't fully up to Minish Cap style. If updates are going to be few and far between it might not work out so well to restart it up officially - about the engine working with it too, personally I'd rather just focus on the engine. I don't know.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: zeemo71 on February 05, 2010, 02:39:30 am
Well why not 50/50? We can maybe work on some graphics (not all) and focus our main attention on engine. And about my sprites i do a lot of edits and recolors but i sprited a lot of custom ones too like my zora and links sprites (i have the collection i put together from ones i found and i have the ones i made separate as well). And i have some not posted on DA.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Zaeranos on February 05, 2010, 08:26:45 am
There were also people who wanted to do an Original Zelda title and not a remake. Thus we can better focus on the engine now and when the engine is good, and well done we can look at what CP game we make.
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: Ryuza on February 05, 2010, 02:40:58 pm
A bit of both sounds like a good idea, as for the graphics part it should probably be all general graphics for MC, like dungeon bosses and puzzle related stuff from older games in MC style, things that could easily be incorporated into the engine once the basics are out of the way. Before that I think that getting together a large amount of ripped MC graphics might be a good idea, if you could help get this topic started back up: http://www.zfgc.com/forum/index.php?topic=34025.0, namely the MC sprites part, it would probably be a big help to the engine.

I think that when the engine is finished, or far enough along that work can be started on a full game, that we should start with a remake of an older game, that way there are some boundaries so things don't get too out of control with everyone wanting to do something different on a custom game. When it comes to remaking an old games there probably won't be too much of a need to modify the engine as most of the general stuff in older Zelda games has made it to Minish Cap. I personally would like to continue on with LA but its up to the community as a whole once the engine gets far enough along.

Gathering together some MC sprites for the resource topic should be perfect for you Zeemo, from the looks of your DA account you have a pretty good amount of sprites already collected together.

Thank you and thats nothing compared to what i have in my hard drive.

Post by: zeemo71 on April 16, 2010, 02:33:23 pm
I know its passed the amount of days this topic is run but i want it to keep going!
I will provide anything the project needs:
Tilesets: i have and TSR
Sprites: we have made or we can finish them
Engine: if we work hard enough maybe we can find one and/or someone will make one for us

I really want this project up and running again.
Here is my DA account it has some sprites on there along with some i found/collected

I know its passed the amount of days this topic is run but i want it to keep going!
Ditto! I will help in anyway I can. I can sprite some enemies or edit tiles. (Probably can't do bosses.) Is there anything in our version that isn't in the GB/GBC version? Is there the color dungeon?
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: zeemo71 on April 16, 2010, 09:36:15 pm
i can do bosses and some normal sprites and eventually i can MAYBE make maps. (i haven't tried yet so i don't know if i can)
Title: Re: Boss / Guardian Sprites
Post by: zeemo71 on April 19, 2010, 12:11:42 pm
What sprites do we need still? cause the genie from 2nd dungeon is good except fireballs but we can find some on TSR and the rock head with 2 arms is done (there was only an out line but i finished it. And some other ones on here

Zeemo, these are really old threads for a project that's been gone for a year now. Please stop posting in the archives <_<;;
