@MarioKong: Same... if you're talking about the 16-bit ones based off Bass he was using in Mega Man 2 when it was 'out of game' stuff. If you're talking about the 1st ones he had in this comic, way back in Mega Man 1... those were pretty terribad, to be honest. No offense, TMO.

@Advertisement: Oh shush you. Djoing was practically BEGGING for that joke.

I don't see the begging.

@MarioKong & @Shadow_Da_Hedgie:

I don't like the previous version. Way too bulky, TMO isn't bulky:

Plus, this newest one is based off the Mega Man sprites and therefore matches better with Dj's and has more movement poses. (yes, I can make fully custom sprites, no, I don't have time for making a fully custom sheet).

What I can do, however, is change it. Any reasons why you don't like this one?

Also, agreed on the MM1 version. It was really just a quick mock-up (based off an ugly sprite as well) and wasn't even intended for any real use.

Huh Been a while since we saw you guys out of the game.

@The_mad_one: Glad you're not taking any offense at the MM1 one... it really was quite horrible. Although I can't really talk, the only sprite work I've done is a minor edit to Zero's MMX2 sprites so they have the colour palette of the MMX3 sprites. Here it is:

As for what I dislike... I don't really know. This one I guess feels bulkier to me, being based of Mega Man rather than Bass, whom I think your previous sprites were based off of, since Bass generally stands taller than Mega Man, and... I dunno, the face and the hair just seem to give off a huge aura of 'obnoxiously arrogant' to me.... but in any case, it's your choice in the end, I'm sure me and everyone else who dislikes them will get used to them with time.

Geez, it's been months since you played? I hope you guys didn't get too rusty... if you're not rusty, the stages will be hard.

If you are rusty... the Doc Robot stages will DESTROY you. The stages are harder than the original ones, and there is a nasty suprise in store for you...

...Hmm. I hope that didn't actually spoil too much for you, did it? I mean, saying that the stage is harder than the original versions and that there is a nasty suprise? I didn't say what the suprise is, after all, and it's pretty much a given that they'll be harder since it's later on in the game...

None taken.

I just wish you'd would give me the reasons you dislike it without me having to ask for it. X3

Ahwell, why the "O_o"?

Reply The_mad_one, November 30th, 2011, 2:43 pm


...Myeah I should make them less high-heel-like and more booty.

Well, this one also matches the new 8bit sprites better, that was a massive change as well. :3

Reply The_mad_one, November 30th, 2011, 2:52 pm

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Oh and I'm having trouble seeing exactly what you mean... The arrogance might be the big mouth, I spent a lot of time on getting that right. A small mouth looks silly, but I'm not fully happy about this. The stern eyebrows might be involved as well.

The bulkyness... Maybe... The face is less rectangular now, though, and the arms more relaxed... I might decrease the fist size further (darnit, even less pixels to make it look like fingers). I do think MM7 style always somewhat involves bulkiness to some extent though.

I could decrease the boots' size... I think Dj will have to change his sprite accordingly as well doing all this.

Face shape...... I could make it even less rectangular, but that leaves awfully little space for the mouth...

@Pharaoh Man: Hm... I see some things to change about the hair shades which might help, as well as the hair shape.

Thanks for the pointers! Anything else?

@Iwillbenapo: Noticed that as well, but we may have played the next day at the same time.

Pretty sure we didn't, but it doesn't really matter.

Reply The_mad_one, November 30th, 2011, 2:59 pm


Um, the last time we played before panel 2 and 3 was several months earlier, as stated in panel 1. ;)

By reaching the end of gemini pages, I was referring to making the pages by the way, not the buffer running out.




Myes we are, though at the time the stuff in this page happened we were at a buffer of about 20 pages.

So darn busy these days.

Reply Neon-J, November 30th, 2011, 3:01 pm

I much prefer the new sprites to the old actually. xD

Reply The_mad_one, November 30th, 2011, 3:23 pm

The 30 NOV 2011 under Stage 9 is not the upload date. ;)

Well, it is, but only by coincidence. It's actually the appear date.

Reply The_mad_one, November 30th, 2011, 3:37 pm


Or maybe the 8bit characters are very small. :3

Reply The_mad_one, November 30th, 2011, 4:14 pm


I'd like to see you try and dismantle a tiny Needle Man, that tries to attack you, using nothing but your hands. :P

We ARE wearing a different set of clothes.

They just look identical.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, December 1st, 2011, 1:24 am

@The_mad_one: Well it's just my thoughts on them, really... I don't know much about spriting, I was just saying the sort of vibe I was getting from them. I'm sure after a while I'll get used to them. The reason I said nothing when your sprite changed the first time was because it was a definate improvement, and I suppose I liked the contrast between your sprite and Djoing's having different bases but still from the same game, y'know? If you have a comic where all the character's sprites were based off the same character, it'd probably end up looking fairly dull and uninteresting.

Huh? Is it another Smackjeeves update change or another break?

Reply The_mad_one, December 2nd, 2011, 3:02 am

@IwillbenapoPRODUCTIONS: Lolno.

Well, our 8bit sprites are both Mega Man based as well, so it seems more consistent to apply that to the other sprites. Plus, I reshaped (mostly sized down) everything, so there's not actually any Mega Man shape remaining besides the overall pose. X3
