how to change the outfit of a char only using color separation

the main idea is when you have a sprite in only one tone,
you have the oportuniti to make a lot of different outfit for that char, only using layers or cut and paste, the idea is cut a part what you need in other color and put again to the sprite and then you have a new outfit , but if you what to go farther the textur of the separation could be change only making the same, in this case the lines of spiderman , using the same colors; only putting the lightest of the palette out of it(the palette) and change it for the next light and the next , and the next ... and use a new more dark and again you put the parts one over the other

ore with other color in the case of Wolverine (Bone Claw)


I experiment with the shiniest colors and I notice in that for make the lines we need to put the 2 or 3 lightest out of the palette

with capitan america i guess have all the steps
resize , green line (yellow) , start the shading with only one color , change the palettes (in this case 3 more times), and cut and paste , and extra texture

That seems like a lot of work, specially the War Machine. Loved how you fez Wolverine by the way, awesome art tho

Those look really good, but I think spider man is too tall, he looks like he'd be higher than WarMachine and Captain America, I think Wolverine could be a little smaller too.

I love using this, it's such a simpler way to recolor certain parts. This was especially useful when I was recoloring a base Pokemon egg for several intricate designs for a friend's website...the downside to this is that it can potentially raise the color count, but that can pretty easily be fixed. :3

Mugen is a 2D based fighting engine. Just assumed that this was a possible WIP character available to play on the engine. nvm. Great work non the less.

Are you gonna include Iron Man? 

I'd suggest you give Iron Man his MVC3 stance and change War Machine's stance to the MVC2 one
