A gift from me for MY Birthday!!

Post by Santhosh CHRiS »

My birthday is coming up this September 22nd and I thought since you guys gifted me this awesome space in the forum I thought I'd give you guys a little present from my side too :D

Request your favorite old dos game or whatever game (can be as old as you like) to be re-made into a High Definition version. All you have to do is post the pixelated version or game screen shot of the character here. Some games have no higher resolution versions and it could be fun to see what they look like when transformed into HD!

For example see some of my sample works I made here to practise my illustrations...

STAR FOX

Image

WARIO

Image

DHALSIM

Image

I will try to do as many as I can! Hope this can be fun for all of you!

Wow, that's some awesome artwork right there!


Hmm... always wanted to see Radnor in HD... I wonder if he'd look like dosraider? :laugh:



Think you can do anything with this sprite?

Thanks Larry. Uh don't expect the quality in my sample images cause that was done when I had waaaaay too much spare time and I just wanted to impress some girls uh... I mean staff at college. But yeah I'll give your sprite a shot. Look for an update on it maybe in 2 days. Hope you like it. I'll try my best to make it look like Sir dosraider :D

Sorry I really didn't find the time to finish this sprite yet. Here's just a small pic of some work in progress. (The hands are IMPOSSIBLE!!!!)

I'm not too satisfied with it. Seems my skills have weakened since I became a professional lol. Hope when I finish it may look better... or worse heh... I think I can get started on Wally's sprite later this week.

Btw my birthday was a BLAST!!! They gave me a surprise birthday party at work with my name on a big cake and everything... and I only joined 4 months ago lol :bday:

Sadly however the girl I like didn't come to the treat I gave everyone later. She said she'd come if she wasn't busy and it turned out she was busy :(

Utterly lovely! So life-like! :thumbsup:


Wardrich wants pixel porn. For the love of all that is [un]holy, do NOT give it to him!

Hey thanks Larry. Glad you like it. Now put it somewhere safe. Btw I noticed your name was Larry Laffer and not larrylaffer so i changed it and re-uploaded it :-)

Uh.... I think I'll wait for Wardrich to confirm his order before I get started lol
