    As some people would know, I wanted to make an 8-bit themed poster.
    Somewhere around the 'temp, I've seen this signature that served as part of my inspiration:

    I was wondering who's signature it was, if they have the original, and if I was allowed to use it as part of my poster.

    I've seen that signature a few times.

    Yeah. I managed to track it down recently, but I was on my iPhone and I forgot who it was.

    It's mine [​IMG]
    I used the screenshot feature on an emulator to make it... oh and paint heh.
    If you want to make modern videogame characters into 8-bit sprites you have to think about the NES color limits, if you want to make it easier copy sprites from various 8-bit games and change them around a bit.
    oh and you can use my signature if you want to.

    Here's an almost 8-bit Rydian...

    Aha! Thank you! Sadly for you and Rydian, it's going to be featured at the Monash CGBC 2011, so no one would understand the Rydian reference.

    Do you have an original that I could use to make some edits and add/modify some of the characters? I showed it to one of my friends and he came up with the idea to use Mac and Doc on the bike and make it look like they're running away from Bowser.

    Oh and ground, I wish I had the idea to make one before Eerpow. It looks freaking awesome!

    And after a solid hour or two, my modifications are complete!

    [cue suspense]

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Opinions? Refer to Eerpow's sig for the original.

    Cool, I'll PM you the original sig later if you want, I'm in school right no.
    Remember to keep original proportions when you work with sprites.
    And Rydian, if you look at the sprites right elbow and compare it to the larger ones you'll see that I fixed some pixels.
    Il' upload that when I'm home.

    What do you mean by original sig? The one you got in your sig at the moment?

    Sure, I don't have Fireworks or Photoshop, but I'll see if there's any quality differences.

    I did all that in Paint as well.

    That all looks pretty nice. [​IMG]

    Nice 8-bit Rydian too. [​IMG] I'm not sure if I remember seeing you say you wanted to make a poster like that though.

    Yep. In this topic:
    http://gbatemp.net/t277443-need-suggestion...s?gopid=3435487

    Then I saw Eerpow's signature, so I just decided to work on it. Hence why I asked for permission in THIS topic.
