Another thing from long ago I never got around to posting. Was originally supposed to contain the -entire- cast from SF2 but that never happened. Seeing as these are all the characters from the opening act I figured it's good enough.

These are all remakes of the character sprites from Shining Force 2 on the Genesis at double their original size while trying to make them closer to their illustrated counterparts all while using only the colors present in the original sprite. It was a fun exercise~

Here's a link to the original sprites (at double size):

EDIT: Cleaned it up a bit, since this turned out way more popular than I expected~

Thanks everyone! :D Went ahead and did some touch ups and removed that stupid stray white pixel outside of Jaha's head (Detail file only)

One of my favorite games from my childhood, and overall! You did justice to the sprites, good job. :)

Very pro.  Love the high contrast.

They look fantastic. Very well done! :)

Wow! Definitely going to use this as references for future stuff.

I downloaded a bunch of old roms recently in a fit of nostalgia, I think I may bump Shining up close to the top of the list now. XD

Peter when he first joins you: "What the hell is this AI character doing stealing all my team's last hits with his weak attack and getting no EXP! What a pain!"

Peter at the end game: "Man I really wish my other characters could level, but promoted, player controlled Peter moves first and farther and destroys everything without effort!"

My last playthrough years ago I made Sarah into a power house actually. Fed her all the stat increase items and made her a Master Monk. Unstoppable kiling machine that heals~

Man... now I'm sad I didn't get to Peter... hmmmm...

I think Peter and Slade are tied for the biggest underdog story. XD

Zeratanus (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/10/2014 12:36

Are you kidding? I love unpromoted Kiwi! :D So much cuter than the giant fire breathing monster he turns into (though that does get points for being totally awesome). Slade on the other hand... it took me a LONG time before I got him to promotion level and learned he's not completely useless and lame!

Maybe I'll get around to finishing the rest of the cast sometime in at least one of their forms since so many share body sprites at different classes. Seeing as how I'm still working on an animation from 2012 in the forums I wouldnt rule out the possibility of seeing this finished 

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/10/2014 12:27

I forgot how lame Slade and Kiwi look like in their unpromoted forms. XD

I'd like to see you tackle those steampunk tanks and what's his name armadillo's second form.

Zeratanus (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/10/2014 12:19

I'm not surprised~ I really should of given them a closer once-over. I'll see about getting a fixed version up sometime soon, because now I'm seeing them too and it's bugging me!

Nice job overall but some single 'crazy' pixels around when zoomed...don't be lazy.
