Sprite Work: Halo (Grrl Power)

Made a sprite based on one of the characters made by :icondavebarrack: for his awesome comic 'Grrl Power'. 

Sydney Scoville Jr., the latest addition to ArcSWAT, the premiere superhuman team in the world of Grrl Power. A nerdy comic-book loving girl in the midst of some of the most powerful people of her world. While not exactly possessing powers of her own, save for a ridiculously high tolerance to dangerously spicy foods and a nasty temper, that changed when she stumbled upon some mysterious orbs (the things floating about her head, thus giving her the codename 'Halo') that grant it's user various powers, though really only about two at a time so far (or one per hand). Flight, Force Field, Energy Beam, Telekinetic Tendril, and Telepresence. The abilities of the last two orbs are still a mystery. She was soon approached by Archon (the heads of ArcSWAT) to join their team.

I've grown quite fond of the story, characters, and humor of the comic... so tried my hand at making a sprite for Halo. Made using Dungeon Fighter Online sprites, as the mage/witch characters have the right body type for her. The Orbs come from FF7, the 'Materia Slot Icons' from the Inventory/Stats screen.

Hope you, and :icondavebarrack: enjoy.

Grrl Power is one of my favorite webcomics and the character you have here is very good and convincing. Now we just need someone to create a game about the world. Though figure that is way too much effort. Still, very cool bit of work, and definitely enjoying seeing your creativity here, it is a pleasant thought to consider such a game existing. Though it would have to wait a fair while yet I fear, given that the webcomic is only starting and so much of those powers and even the "skill tree" we've seen in that -1- level-up so far is rather daunting to think about what all is unlocked in time.

a grrl power game would be pretty awesome

Combo multiplier by mixing up the most shocking profanities in a hurry in a mini-game in between sections for extra upgrade points maybe? Given how the heroine has acted so far, making both sailors and nuns blush.

And dangerous hot sauce breath for a "status effect" attack ;p
Sydney has another power, due in part to her being a comic book nerd she is pretty Genre Savvy and more than once uses that to good effect in the big super hero vs super villain fight.

Just a curious question even though you don't have to fix / re-modify it yourself; why not making those materias be in a circle instead the line-up rows? or have them be attached on bodyparts or something, for interesting appearance? XP

Either, she do look cute in sprites, :)
SXGodzilla's avatar
well they float in a halo around her head... :shrug: kinda hard to make that work. ;p plus she's not MY character. ;)
Jachan19's avatar
i know she is not yours as i did read your desp. :P
And you do recongize halo is shaped of a circle? XD
And it's kinda bit easy to make a halo though... just make a dummy oval above her head then place materias on that oval line... then remove the oval line and you are done. :P

Cool, didn't expect to see this. I was about to say you need some sprites of her floating upside-down but then I realised you could just flip these ones.
