Hey guys! It has been a while since I don't post anything new, so I decided to release the sprite sheet of Sailor Moon that I was working for a Mugen character, which by the way, I decided to drop the project but still... after all the hard work and time that I spent, I decided to release at least the sprites that I worked, so... if someone wants to continue this... Go for it!


A short background, from the project (for anyone who cares about it).

I started to work with Sailor Moon pretty much after I finished a Sailor Mercury for Mugen, I had a lot of help from Erradicator, which he was programing the character, however, I lost the contact with this guy, which was a very nice friend from MGBR forums, btw. That was like in 2008 or something... I just had finished my Master degree, I was unemployed at the time, which means, that I had much more free time to work with it. Anyway, the time passed and once that I started my PhD, I had no time to work with this character anymore, so, I am basically holding these sprites for like... eight years? Huh! Once that I realised that, I would never be able to return to work at this project as before, I decided to drop the project due to the lack of time and lack of motivation to finish it. 

Those sprites were made using the 3DO Sailor Moon sprites and the Arcade game as base, with tons of edits on every single sprite to make it more cartoonish and somewhat original. However, I haven't finished all the sprites, I got done the sufficient sprites for a dummy, but I haven't worked with the all basic moves like punches and kicks, so, yeah. Anyone who decides to continue, will still have some job to make this character completed. It worth to mention that this character has some stuffs that I started to fix but I never finished (especially in the boots), so, the older sprites may be a little different than the newer ones, which they are not in order.

If anyone has any question about it or anything feel free to ask.

This looks awesome. I really hope these get used honestly, Plus I always have wanted a Sailor Moon that looked nice but was also balanced, Y'know?

Wow. That's a lot of work you have/had done so far. Those sprites look really great! Hope somebody can finish off where you left off. So far, I love the look of the edit you made. Looks like CVS style or your own, right?

Actually, Sailor Moon has my personal style, however, my "style" has a HUGE influence in Capcom's CVS and SFA design, but I wasn't trying to make  CVS Sailor Moon or something, I was just trying to make Sailor Moon with a better graphic quality than Sailor Mercury, a character which I created a while ago using the same 3DO sprites as base with edits.

I see. You did it very unique in your design.

Great stuff! I am sure someone wouldn't mind finishing what you started.

I hope that too, not counting that, the missing sprites are the most fun part, which are the hit moves. I may have somewhere in my computer the base of most of the missing sprites from 3DO, if anyone ask for them, I wouldn't mind to share them.

Perfeito.

Valeu Nino! Já que eu não achei nenhum candidato para continuar o trabalho, desta vez pode ser que consiga algo, nem que seja para outro tipo de plataforma, não necessariamente de algum fighting game :P

Pode servir para otra engine (Open BOR....)

Isso também, só por que os sprites foram desenvolvidos com foco em jogos de luta (1x1), não significa que eles não possam ser usados em estilo briga de rua, embora precise de algumas re-adequações dos sprites para outro estilo em algumas animações como walking, por exemplo.

How bad your project died because your sprites were always very promising but it happens. Sometimes we have to do it because we're busy with our own things. I'm so happy to see these sprites though, I didn't know you'd finished them. They're amazing, Zir! :)

It's good to see you again, dude :D

Hey duuuude! How have you been? About the project, I used to consider it dead because I wasn't working on it at all for a while, but now. I consider it like available adoption. Probably someone will take the challenge, who knows. There is also a bunch of moves that are missing like punches, and kicks (except low kick that is finished) and some more moves. Anyway, I was getting really sad, to see all these sprites being holded for that long time, so, share what I have finished is the best thing to do. I think I haven't mentioned this, but I really appreciated all the support that I got while I was working with this character, and because the support I got that I decided to release all the finised moves for someone else interested to continue this.

Hey! Everything ok. I'm trying to finish my thesis and to finally get my degree. I've been waiting for 3 years (sadly, not my fault). I hope you're doing great!

I'm sure will give them a good use, they're amazing! Your sprites were always good and it's great to see this sprite sheet!
