For God sakes, STOP CLONING ME by leon-fenrir For God sakes, STOP CLONING ME by leon-fenrir
I love sprites, but my biggest pet peeve is the fact the there are hundreds of recolors of Zero (from Megaman Zero). With two sprite-based game projects lined up, the pic shows my ultimate definition of CLONES!!!! These are worse than the clones of Melee and Brawl. This pic is bad enough without Roy and Young Link. And Regular Link is my least favorite. This isn't jaw-dropping or awe-inspiring. But I was so frustrated and had to speak my mind.

Naw you seem to bring up some good points, as do other people on the comments. Way i see it, for spriters the best place to start is with pallete swapping or recoloring other allready made sprites, it gets the spriter used to choosing shading and using different colloring techniques

I had the link in my note archive but the link doesn't work anymore, and i doubt Spriters Resource or Sprite Database has it. I'll snoop around and let you know what i find.

nah it's ok. This was just a statement of my own opinion. People still like using them. Geno I found on the Sprite Database. But apparently, it's not there anymore. You'll have to Google the sprites. Sorry bud.

You weren't a burden at all. Actually, if you find them, please let me know? I'm kinda curious myself. I wish you the best of luck. :salute:

I will continue to make more, and if you want leave me a note if you wanna request a drawing and I'll do it.

Just to clear things up, I made those Link sprites from sprites back when the first MMZ sprites hit the Net. This was back before editing MMZ sprites became a fad. The temptation was too great, because unlike TRADITIONAL Mega Man sprites, MMZ sprites are more realistically proportioned and they don't have bulky limbs.

Also, for the record, I did sprite edits, not recolors. There's a difference. :)

Okay, that makes sense. I didn't find these sprites until quite sometime after MMZ. Due to my reclusive redneck step-dad he forced me to live under a rock for a few years (thank god my mom divorced him). That aside, I really hope this didn't offend you or any of the others. If it does I'm truly sorry.

and yet somehow the original zero always looks better than all those clones. People need to learn how to shade. Good point, by the way.

yeah sad enough, there's more much more than what I've shown. In fact the same is true for ALL the Mega Man characters.
