Asgardreid's Hand-Drawn Skins 2014: The Changing of the 'Gard
« on: August 07, 2014, 04:36:16 PM »
UPDATE: Shortcut to Asgardreid's Smash Project!


Hi!

Anybody here?

No?

Great. That's fine. I was just over here cookin' up some skins again for the first time in -- what, five years? Six years? Five -- Six years. Cool. The thing is, I've been suffering the Smash 4 fever something fierce, and what better way to ease off the hype than by pitting some Smash characters against each other in SMW? That's, uh, what I've been doing. Drawing Smash characters (along with some appealing Smash candidates) as skins and then um... yeah.

SO HERE WE GO!

I'm not going to repost every skin from my old topic, because there are way too many and most of them weren't too hot. But I'd definitely like to bring back a few of the old gang. Beforehand, though, let's get some things out of the way:
  • Mediafire zip containing all skins posted here - 85 as of July 9th
  • 1.8 beta 2 compatible (I'm not making them with the Stomp Arena alpha in mind).
  • All of the skins as seen below are .PNG, NOT .BMP. This is annoying and I'd rather not do it this way, but I haven't found an image uploader that 1. accepts bitmap files and 2. lets you keep the original assigned file name (as opposed to renaming it with a gibberish string like Imgur or Tinypic). You can easily and losslessly change any .png skin to a .bmp by renaming it, but you can also just download the above zip file, in which all the skins are bitmaps like they should be. Or, where applicable, you can also just click on the SMWStuff link and individually download the skin as a .bmp.
  • Unlike in my old thread, I'm not planning to try to accommodate every skin request. I'll consider anything, but by far, the best chance I'll fulfill a request is if it's for a Smash character or one who would fit well in the Smash setting (like Bomberman, Black Mage, or Geno).
  • I'm not really sure why I bothered specifying that. Requests?? Like three people are going to read this by the end of the year!
Well, who cares? On to the returning skins!

Excellent! Since i'm trying to save all the forum stuff in a single huge folder, in case of things going down again, this is really a pleasant surprise. But say, so you don't want to repost all of the old skins, right? Well, it's a shame because i would really like to get the Froslass and Twinkle ones. :/

Happy to oblige! I'm not planning on dumping most of the other old skins (though I might bring back a few more), but any skin of mine is readily available on request, except for the ones I made for the Halloween edition which may have disappeared completely. Too bad. I seem to remember putting together a pretty bitchin' Cthulhu.

Anyway, here are Twinkle and Froslass. I can't really see the appeal of this Twinkle skin (tbh I don't even remember what franchise she's from) but Froslass still looks okay, I think.

Oh, really thanks! I needed these two so much!

Don't worry about the HWE skins, i managed to save them all. In fact, i am planning to create a Rar file with all the stuff i saved, though it will take a while until i organize everything.

Oh, I wouldn't want to tread on your DR territory. Actually, I was thinking of suggesting that you tackle Oogami along with Nidai, since their bulky frames would probably fit a square canvas better than their skinny classmates.

But, sure, Blizzard Buffalo looks like a fun challenge. And Simisage, well, I can manage that too.

In the meantime, here's one I previewed all the way back in July 12, 2008, but never finished. In fact, I couldn't find a draft of this anywhere, so I had to reconstruct the skin from the preview image I posted there. Worth it. Didn't change a pixel on the standing pose. Cutest little evil sorcerer/pig-man ever.

GANONDORF

(Also, I edited the Geno skin. His eyes were the wrong color, I can't believe I didn't notice. They should be red when he's on the blue team, so secondary color it is.)

Today, an old fighter returns to the fold -- but not in his original form. I had a skin for this guy dating back all the way to late 2007, but it's no longer very good by my current standards. I wanted him to return to SMW as much as I want him to return to Smash, so I give you the new and improved...

Really good! Now that's an improvement!

I will keep both the new and old versions, because why not? Since you're giving priority to Smash Bros related skins, do you plan to bring back the Kirby forms?

Oh yeah! What with the Smash theme, I guess there's no reason to keep Kirby on the bench. Here's a new version with some slight remodelling (I didn't like the way he didn't bob down while walking) and a major color overhaul. The monochrome palette of the original was bothering me a lot, and this pink-colored version looks a lot better in the red team.

KIRBY

I'll have to see about bringing back the hats, too. Actually, it'd be fun to make a Kirby hat for every other SMW character I draw... That'd be quite a project, though.

Anyway, I've got one more skin to get out of my system, and then it's on to Hinatediz' requests. (Or do you prefer to go by Greasiggy?)

Maybe the hats will be more fun than difficult to do.

I suppose that this "one more skin" is Ike?

Hinatediz, Greasiggy, Blizzard Bufallo, Edo or Iggy-san, as he is known. I second his requests, since i like to collect MagaMan and Pokemon skins.

No, this next skin is an all-new one! I do feel bad about Ike. His stand pose is pretty good and appropriately hulking, but I hate his jump pose, it looks silly. If I bring him back, it'll be with a partial or complete revamp.

This next skin is an assist trophy in SSB4 who could totally have been a playable character. Next time, maybe.

"Dillon's Rolling Western" is a 3DS game on the eShop. Haven't played it, but when I saw him unveiled as a SSB4 assist trophy, I loved his design.
