Reidy and Friends' Showcase

A general showcase where pretty much anyone can post anything they want, barring porn. Maybe. Probably. We also try to be civil whenever possible, so don't go out of your way to piss people off. Other than that just sit back, relax, and enjoy the showcase.

Anyways, you should have at least SOME experience spriting before applying to join, should you want to. We don't accept recolors and are very much against sprite thieves.

Accepting Author Applications

We welcome both spriters and artists, but please try to be better than a recolor. We'd also appreciate it if you take and give critique with an open mind. To apply, either use the application system or send a PM to Shard or Z. BE SURE TO INCLUDE AN EXAMPLE OF YOUR WORK SO WE DON'T HAVE TO DIG AROUND FOR IT. That annoys us and generally makes it less likely that we'll let you in. We're lazy. So sue us.

A little Genji sprite I made.

An explosion sprite that I made.

I really should make bigger sprites so I don't have to resize my entire sheet by 200% every time I upload (leaving it at 100% makes it pretty tiny). Any tips?
Basic sprites of my character drawing and firing a gun.

Give credit, do not steal, and so forth.

Don't expect much shading on my sprites since I specialize in 8-bit spriting
@The Magnificent Z: Fair enough, I guess. I'll see what I can do.
@The Magnificent Z: I blame Windows 10 paint, cause I *was* going with one shade of red when designing this thing.

I'll try and see what I can do whenever to try and improve upon the part that's a top.
Yes, they do need definition. As it is, his chest is pillow shaded: otherwise known as "no, bad, stop shading like that." What you'll want to do is have the shading face a certain direction relative to the shape of his chest (pecks and such.) Notice on the original zero sprite how the shading helps bring out the roundness of his chestplate. Additionally, if that's a shirt or some other sort of cloth piece you'll want to put a ruffle/fold or two in there.

Also again you have some palette issues. His shirt needs to either be the same colors as the arms/boots or you need to make it a noticeably different color from them, depending on what you're trying to do with it.
Limit your palette. I see you're using two shades of red, which is completely unnecessary on an 8-bit sprite.

In order to stay upright that top would have to be spinning constantly, so I'd say blend the green and purple together here and there to give it more whoosh. Maybe make each line two pixels wide and give them a subtle screw-curve upwards.
Could use some more editing to differentiate your character from Mega Man. Without the dingleberry on top of his head, the outline is pretty much exactly the same as MegaMan, which tbh makes it little more than an advanced recolor. Maybe make him a bit taller, straighten out his legs and arms a bit, that kinda thing.

Half~Zack
Here's a Zero Edit, and Zero for comparison purposes. Let's call the edit 'Half'.

So, I've been told by one person who saw him, that his shirt seems flat, and, that his chest needs definition? But, does a male chest really need definition, when they're not wearing any armor over their torso..?
Clownbot
Okay, lets call this one 'Snickers', at least for now. Laugh-based clown names, right?

He's more or less custom, even if I did use 8-bit Mega Man stuff to help me with the design. Head's definitely custom, so's the top.

Might use him and Roboranger both in a future comic.
Roboranger
So, yeah, basically, my first edited Mega Man stuff, more or less(Although, the second and third sprites could be considered splices, since I basically pasted the head, but, then, they all pretty much more or less had the same Mega Man head before anyway).

So, thoughts?

Edit: Replaced with a taller edit and Mega Man sprite comparison.
This time I'm trying for the quick dash animation. Based off of any critiques I get on this and from the last upload I'll be combining this and the run animation to be a little more polished.
@Shard: X3 awesome

[distant screech] SO THIS IS A THING THAT HAPPENED, AWARE PASSED 300 FANS I GUESS???

So I was thinking, when we passed 100 fans we had a preview of future Worlds, and when we passed 200 fans we had a drawn image celebration... so for 300 I figured, WHY DON'T WE HAVE BOTH?

So here we have it, a preview for Worlds [17], [18], [19], and [20] in all of their spooky mysterious glory! I mean I don't really know what else to tell you, to say anything else about them would mean spoiling the surprise.

Although, astute people might recognize some of these guys. I wonder if anyone'll guess the context, though. PROBABLY NOT OH WELL
The closer arm should always be more brightly shaded. It looks like it disappears when he swings it forward.
He looks like he's going in reverse. You should probably add more frames to it as well.
Been A While Since I've Posted Anything
Yeah this is my first try at sprite animations like this, thought I'd start with a simple run.

So do your thing and tear it apart so I may learn.
