Hey look it's a sprite that's nothing to do with Doctor Who!  But surely that's all I pixel anymore?  Hm, maybe not.

I saw the current weekly challenge was to pixel a fighting game sprite of yourself so I thought hey I've kinda been wanting to do that for a while so here you go. Been ages since I sprited anything like this so I'm sure it's flawed all to hell but it'll do for me. And yes I posed and took a photo of myself in those clothes to help sprite it. Damn, my jacket's stripes are annoyingly placed and probably ruin the arm on the left's sense of volume but yeah.  I might  tweak the sprite before the challenge week is over or not cos I've already wasted enough time on it and I'm a busy little furball. I dunno. Anyways...

As a little extra here's the sprite appearing on a section of background from Gen's stage on Street Fighter Alpha 2 with arcade monitor like scanlines just for fun.  Background is work of Capcom's artists obviously so copyright or whatever to them.  Is just being used as an example of how the sprite looks with a quality pixelled background rather than a blank or too bright a background color.

Love it - reminds me of an early 2000 KoF game!

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/19/2012 13:08

 So amazing. I loved the colors.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/18/2012 10:22

9_6: Thanks for that.  Means a lot coming from someone whose pixel art I like a lot, especially the animations.

ultimaodin (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 3/14/2012 11:18

You know this sprite avctually reminded me of Street Fighter Alpha 2 so that additional extra is just plain awesome!

I'd like to see more sprites by you. =)

9_6 (Level 1 Intern) @ 3/12/2012 03:19

I like this one best.

It's just a normal guy without magic or robot arms or any of that pishposh yet it still looks more interesting than others while also staying true to the challenge rules. 

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/11/2012 13:00

Thanks for the tips.  I had tried some of that but wasn't overall satsified with it.  And thanks for saying that last bit though I'm sure you must waste time checking because I very rarely post much at all other than update the Doctor Who sprites bit which is more of a personal hobby.   Very much appreciate the comment though :)

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 King Checker) @ 3/11/2012 11:28

This is very good. I think perhaps the stripes would look better if the contrast were lowered on them and also if possible the stripe itself were thinner.
I know you aren't working on it anymore, but I guess some ideas can't hurt anyway.

Whenever I go to this site you are one of the few artists I make a point of checking out to see if any new pieces have been submitted.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/11/2012 04:32

Thanks.  I particularly like your style for colorful monsters.

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 3/10/2012 15:23

 Sweet stuff, man. Nice to see you work again!

 This is my favorite entry so far.  I like the pallete for the jeans, in particular.

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 3/10/2012 07:33

The sprite gives the feeling of the old Beat 'em Up's but still good your recognisable style, great job!

And I have to agree with Delicious, would be awesome to see some more charakters.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 3/10/2012 00:21

 Could you make more fighter sprites? Gosh, your style is to drool for and works well with this type of stuff.

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/8/2012 16:03

You might be right but I'm not gonna touch it anymore.  And thanks about the jacket.  It's only a cheap one I got from Primark a year and half ago (was already cheap at the tagged price of £20 but came through the checkout at £10) but it's mine and I wear it lots so it's part of my general look these days.  Heh.

randomboy2007 (Level 2 Peon) @ 3/7/2012 13:13

Love the jean!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/7/2012 06:48

Yes - I also like the fact that your wearing your own clothes too!

Very nice, but my only nitpick is the back leg as I feel that it would work better if the knee was pointing inwards, rather than out.

(That's a very cool jacket your wearing:)

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/7/2012 04:18

Main point of these challenges is to really just give you an idea to inspire your creativity and the 'restrictions' are there to help develop your pixelling skills so just take part and anything you do is likely to make you a better pixel artist anyway.  Just had a look at your gallery and you've got some very nice works in there (and hey you've even WON one of these before) and show a lot of promise so please do enter.  :)

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/7/2012 01:19

Has it improved?  Been so long since I did this sort of thing.  Some bits still bug me.  The arms look almost like they're different sizes but on the original photo I took of myself to pose it looks like that anyways, perhaps due to foreshortening and depth.  Some things can just look 'wrong' in real life too I suppose.

And yeah my 'boxy' black shoes of stompiness.  They were meant to be just for job interviews and special occasions but since my trainers fell apart I've had to wear them for most things now til I can get some more trainers.  Sucks being unemployed.

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/6/2012 20:25

What a great sprite! It looks like you're style's improved, yes? Those jeans are mighty fine, too!

*Gasp!* Those boots... 

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/6/2012 17:52

That's cool.  I do like your samurai sprite though. :)

Sergiotron (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/6/2012 17:18

@Carnivac, I think your point of view would make this challenge more interesting. Your entry makes me want to submit a new and more accurate one, and I'd love to start right now!, too bad I can't :(

maybe tomorrow :)

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 3/6/2012 17:06

really like the colours and use of black. :)

Danori (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 3/6/2012 17:04

 Its gunna be a hard contest against that :o

May the best pixeler win!

(which probibly wont be me x#)

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/6/2012 16:43

I am almolst not entering this one

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/6/2012 16:28

What's the point of pixelling 'yourself' if you end up dressed in clothes that aren't yours or not even resembling yourself in any way?  And considering I wear that jacket pretty much all the time I'm out, people have just got used to seeing me in it so it's part of my look.

orange08 (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 3/6/2012 16:26

Where does it say in the rules you can only be wearing your own clothes? :P

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 3/6/2012 16:24

But then it won't be my jacket. 

orange08 (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 3/6/2012 16:22

Yeah your right arm looks like the skin is showing through. You'd probably be better off removing those stripes.

Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 3/6/2012 16:16

wow that looks good. Good luck in the voting
