Sprite Jam 23 April - 3 May 2003
« on: 23 Apr 2003, 11:35 »
Okay, here we go. As in the last jam, your sprite should depict an existing adventure game character. What I want you to do is to take a human character and draw what he/she would look like as a furry animal character... Or, conversely, take one who is already an animal character and draw what that character would look like as a human.

There are no limits to size or medium, but you will score points by staying close to the style of the original; i.e. make your sprite look like it could be put back into the game the character came from without looking too out of place.

Have fun!

Here I come:





His name is Bobcat, of course. (hehe ;D )

I think I must have a rest, for unknown reasons I'm drawing *things* of one single game over and over again...

-- EDIT --
Don't know why, it appeared as red cross to me, never happened before, I may look for ways to fix it later...
Nevermind, it's just a matter of time.

Heh, at least you didn't just grab the swan from the end of the game and say "Well it is in fact Bobbin as an animal, duh!"

All good entries so far. Keep 'em coming!

What a good idea! Why didn't I think of this before? That way I didn't need to waste my time! ;D

I totally called that before I read the text.  The hands and the tie gave it away.  And the hat I suppose.  Whatever.  Good job!

Wow, N3T... that's a lovely one... I immediately got it because of his suit... and of course he's washing his feet... I mean, he was running around all bare feet, when he was a dog!

Actually Geocities doesn't allow hotlinking, so all we saw in your post are just 2 big red X. (I can view it by copying the link to teh address tho).

You may not know of this because the pic's probably in your cache already.

To make your pic viewable, one way is to use
http://invis.free.anonymizer.com like what Quick did.

The winner: N3TGraph! Sam looks good and is recognizable by more than his clothes. The features are translated creatively (e.g. long ears -> long hair) and the personality shines through. So, N3TGraph is up next to run the sprite jam!
