Thank you! After that, Fox would be nice. He's one of the few from the Original 12 without a skin (Not even in the original game)

Agreed. I did a skin for him on request back in early 2008, but it was mega-crappy, we're talking pretty much just a furry Mario. By the time I got to Wolf in May of that year, Fox was already unrecognizably awful in comparison. I'll definitely give him a better effort this time!

I'd been leery about taking on Link, but I don't know why. Really, really happy with how his standing pose came out. And since he got me in the appropriate mood...

The old Toon Link was never a horrible skin, and I like the bold move to draw him with no outlines in order to get across the cel-shaded concept. But the color distribution was bafflingly silly, and there were other aspects - such as getting those cat-like eyes - that I wanted to improve as well. I didn't know whether this one was going to end up being a total revamp, but indeed it did.

Updated the Mediafire zip, too.

I really like how Duck Hunt turned out. The fourth pose was so clever.

This is my first time in a long time. Pardon the Request but could you do a Krystal Skin? (You know, from Star Fox Assault with the clothes changing colors to represent the Team Colors.)

Thanks a lot for the request! Hit a slow patch lately because of a new dog and some other developments, but I'll try to get back into it. I was working on the Fox request and a few other characters before slowing down, so I'll add Krystal to the list.

As you'll see if you view the comparison image below... This Fox is quite a bit different from the version I made in 2007. That one really was one of my worst efforts. I've read back and it looks as though the requester, Meracket, was the one to ask that Fox be drawn in a style reminiscent of 4matsy's Mario skin, but... I must have taken him too literally. P... Pardon me for even allowing that old skin to show its face around here.

And then some other space person! I went off-palette to get that neon green color for Samus' visor and highlights, there was no other way to get all the colors together that I wanted.

One new skin...

...And one revamp of an older skin that hadn't been posted in this topic.

IKE

I took a big chance in trying to emulate a specific pose of his from the Smash series instead of a generic standing pose. Getting the walk animation to look all right took some doing, but I'm reasonably satisfied with the result. The original skin was one of my better efforts for that time, but looks a little silly now, especially with his weirdly squashed jump pose, so I preferred to redraw him completely.

I like these... added to my favs... This guy (Ike) is walking like a Beat 'em Up character and that's nice...!

LUCINA

My girlfriend's favorite Smash character hits SMW! As with Ike, I was trying to hit a couple of specific poses for her standing and jumping frames. It's a fun challenge.


YOSHI

After Lucina, I wanted to tackle an easier one, and this Yoshi came together really smoothly. I don't see mine as any real competition for Blasted Landmark's, but still worth doing.


KING K. ROOL

Just a tiny tweak: I felt the original looked a little cluttered, and found that darkening K. Rool's skin both read better and was more accurate to the way he's usually depicted.


PAC-MAN

A Pac-Man revamp? Yeah... the original skin was one of the first ones I made for the return last year and it definitely shows signs of my old outline-heavy style, with the boots especially suffering a lot. As you can see, this isn't a full redraw, just a revamping to bring him more in line with my current style.

Thanks so much for the kind words! Let me know if you happen to have any requests - otherwise I'm just going to keep trying to crank out Smash characters.

No problem. Keep doing.
Maybe I'm coming back to action with some new stuff too.

I have! I wanted to do a sprite where the Inkling would walk as a human and jump as a squid. But after multiple tries I couldn't get the squid looking good at all, so the Inkling went on the shelf. I'll have to give her another go.
