.TakaM's up to no good

on: March 08, 2006, 01:26:35 am
my first topic here, the one about animal crossing graphics.. you might remember some of the mockups i made..

well, specifically:

has been getting a bit of attention
especially since someone flashed it onto their GBAmicro:
(I'd fool for it :P)
making topics at all the expected places, gamefaqs, various ac forums, nintendo forums


I may as well mention my last hoax, that got HUGE

(I made the screen in mspaint like usual, but made it look like a scan in photoshop ( dont ask me what the article says, i have no idea :P)
i got golden sun 3 added to databases at certain sites, and I counted over 200 topics I found when i made this image, since I got it hosted at the most trusted golden sun site, it quickly grew..


oh well, just letting you guys know..

and has anyone else ever done anything like this? :P

To be serious, <_< I thought those were real XD, well, I have never done something like that, I must say / type that those fake things are really impressive.

Amusing. I was hoping something similar might happend with my Vagrant Story GBA pic, then I realised I'd done it totally the wrong size :P

I like trees (on the first pic.). Did you draw them pixel by pixel or did u use any other technology (like 3D model)?

Very cartoony and stylish. I think the stones are a bit odd though...along with the lack of shadows anywhere in the image XD.

If I didn't read through it, I would have suspected someone was actually making a GBA-animal crossing follow up. That Micro pic is enough to make most people slap on the "authentic" label. The Golden sun transfer pic had the same effect.

I suddenly have an urge to make fake mockups now O_o

hehe, thanks guys, I was waiting to see if kennethfejer would post, coz I know his kid icarus DS mockup got picked up at a few sites and people thought it was real, funny thing was he never intended for anyone to think it was real :P
I like trees (on the first pic.). Did you draw them pixel by pixel or did u use any other technology (like 3D model)?
no, i didnt use any 3d modeling software to make these graphics, I was aiming for a pre-rendered, yet cleaned up look and Ive always been very happy with this work of mine. :)

And finally, the urge got the better of me:



Fake screenshot from The legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Figured i could fool people into thinking there was a "secret" way to meet Ganondorf at the end of the game.

Made the Ganon sprite and changed the patterns on the walls, columns, carpets, stainglass windows and so fourth.
I'll upload the actual pixel art later. I've got work to do tomorrow.
