Could you add a little more to his portrait so it isn't just a bust?

This thread is getting rather huge O_o. I must say however, it's been really nice seeing many of the artists tweaking and improving their entries.

@Captain Blood: Its great to see you spriting again, that portrait is superb, truly impressive... I miss your site... bring it back *cries*.

@Bo: You've made a nice improvement with your new werewolf. The pose is *much* better.

@Razz: Thats a kickass sprite ya got there, very beautiful colors; the black outline helps focus the sprite as well. Also your portrait came out quite nicely, dynamic as well.

@istvan: Somehow I don't trust that guy with a wrench... very nice fighter still.

@allthoseotherpeopleImtoolazytocommenton: d('.'<) thumbs up from kurbeh!

Question for Scuba: Are you allowing palette swaps or not? I think a few pages back you mentioned it was a royal pain to implement...but I can't remember clearly. >.<

If you really want to, go for it.

I've made some progress on mine--finished getting rid of the black outlines on the portrait head, and got some work done on the upper torso of my sprite.  I'm doing all the pixels from scratch, but I'm using Urien's sprites as a reference for the lineart

I posted the sprite and portrait in a thread in the Pixel section... Here's a link -> http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=747.0

I'd like to have my (ooold, but still mine :3) website linked -> http://www.llama-land.net/keops/

Cheers! Great work everyone, keep the fighters coming!

PS: Wouldn't it be neat if this was a real game? I'd so love to kick Skalle's butt >:) lol

semi-final, will probably tweak later on. Portrait's simple, but effective. Should go over any darkish creepy background, even almost or pure black. no url.

that's awesome, but the portrait looks a lot darker than the sprite...no complaints with the sprite itself, it's beautiful, but maybe try making it look a little more like the portrait...

This was the inspiration, of course.

I AM considering making the sprite darker, obscuring the face, doing the eye glow... but I'm not sure if it would work for a fighter sprite where lighting conditions are dependant on stage and generally you have to strive for clarity more than silly lighting effects... but I might indeed edit after all...

EDIT: decided to update anyway. Various tweaks, armed the guy with MISTIKAL FORCE OF EVIL and generally spiced this one up
