step 1: make glow around every sprite + sonic is covered in glow
steap 2: make a ball shield texture over all the sprites

this is actually quite a large project lets see where it goes wink

Re: Sheild Request

not sure what you mean by a glow and ball texture, do you want both?

Re: Sheild Request

1 sheet with all blueish sonic sprites with glowing blue boarders
2 sheet with balls around every sprite

Re: Sheild Request

Re: Sheild Request

Re: Sheild Request

How do I get rid of the blur around the sprites?

Re: Sheild Request

Doesn't look like any of the sonic sprites we have match what is shown in the video. check out Sonic's eyes spines and feet. Totally different. ( feet are longer, eyes smaller, and spines are uplifted more on the video sprite) Looking at it more closely, it does remind me of the sonic 3 sprite somehow...

Re: Sheild Request

I agree, I can still make the shield for the heck of it.

Re: Sheild Request

good catch on the sonic 3 actually cool  cool  cool

i do think they were mock ups for the shield in x-treme

i think the sheild was saposta look exactly like this tho it looks nothing like the shield in sonic 3 or any other sonic games

plus we do not have a shield as of now so something  needs to be made

edit:

i think best bet is get a entire sheet together use photoshop to create a glow around the sprite and then tint the entire sprite blue ?

Re: Sheild Request

problem is that there's a blur around most of the sprites from Andrew's rips.

Re: Sheild Request

Aren't those the low level rips that we're not using?

Re: Sheild Request

Actually we do have 2 official shields from Sonic x-Treme, a lightning shield and a standard shield.
both are found in the leaked def files. the standard shield is a normal pixel animation similar to Sonic 3's shield. The standard shield is actually an effect that looks like a magnifying glass over sonic. however its very much unlike the one seen in the video.

Re: Sheild Request

the white from the ring magnet might do well as the glowing boarder ?

edit: vi cant seem to make it the blue like in the picture ill play more later

Re: Sheild Request

Also the pixels for the shield alternate every frame. Call it a small dynamic change in the transparency effect.

Frames for reference, (or frames of reference tongue)

Borrowed a ball texture from Super Mario 64, changed the color, lowered the color levels to 32 with posterization to give it a 32 bit look, then used a checkerboard transparency effect.

Re: Sheild Request

You're using the wrong sprites. They're from Sonic 3.

Re: Sheild Request

I think what Tech is doing is taking it a step further from the mock up and actually making shield sprites like it.

Will do. Maybe if we make it pulse a little.
