Topic: Spin Slash sprites (High Quality image rips from E3 demo video)
Alright I'm gonna start working on Spin Slash sprites here soon. I just wanted to make this clear so if anyone else is working on it as well please post here. Here are the goals of the project:
*Capture frame-by-frame images from the E3 demo video featuring the Spin Slash.
- I will attempt to get the sprites of Sonic going into the Spin Slash as well as the Spin Slash itself.
- Total of 39 images captured covering the span of 2 seconds. Went ahead and did a very rough crop of one of the frames just for the sake of showing the possibility. It needs a lot of cleaning before I consider it a decent sprite. Despite this the sprite actually looks fairly decent when shrunk down to a much smaller size (see the difference between the png file attached and my avatar).
-Judging by the pure amount of time it takes to work on 1 frame, I might need to make very rare updates from this point on. Taking the backgrounds out is going to be extremely time consuming and it's something I won't be putting high on my priority list due to work and such. I have the images uploaded in an archive so anyone else who wants to take part in this simply post here in this thread. I do apologize for not having more to offer at this point but I gave anyone who wants to take on this project a great starting point.
Remove the background from each frame (longest portion of the process).
Attempt some copy/paste work to compensate for the portions of the sprite that go off screen during the demo.
