I just started messing around with this style recently. There's some Laharl, Lilim (these are just new poses for the existing sheet), plus an OC of mine with a cheerleader motif (as opposed to the cheerleaders with a belly dancer motif in Disgaea 3) that I haven't named yet. Also, the Ciel Phantomhive (from the anime Kuroshitsuji) used in my avatar.
I'll post new stuff when I can; I can't concentrate while people are watching me, and I have roommates so it's difficult >.>
From the time of my first sprite post to now (and only because I have to go to bed for work), I've been tweaking some old Laharls and making a bunch of new ones. No Laharl sheet is complete without a "stupid laugh" (as Etna would say) pose.
Bow poses are a shout out to anyone who made their Laharl in Disgaea 1 an archer. Surely I'm not the only one. ^_^;;;
Nicely done. I like the Laharl ones.^^
And here I thought I was going to be updating more frequently than this...anyway, here is a few Maos. I couldn't really decide what kind of weapon he should have, so I made a crazy weapon fitting of a crazy character such as himself. Sort of a staff-axe thing with a spear head on the opposite end. Mao will get more poses later. I'm on vacation from work soon, so I will have more time to sprite.
Those are very nicely done.^^ Did you make them out of scratch, or did you base it off anything?
I like the weapon!^^
Pretty much all of my stuff uses a base of some sort. In the case of Mao and Laharl, I used the male Warrior sprites from Prinny: CIRBTH as a base,
although some of the arms were taken from the Lilim from the same title. When it comes to hair, I usually use the character's original sprite and
make appropriate adjustments to the size. Mao's weapon was a frankenstein of a staff belonging to the female Healer, and an axe I found on a female
Mage's sheet along with a few edits.
Now, for my next piece of work, everyone's favorite mid-boss, Mid-Boss!
This one I put together using some cutscene sprites from Phantom Brave (Raphael and a Warrior, specifically) due to me discovering that the PB sprites and CIRBTH sprites have roughly the same proportions, thus can be used together. Laharl's a bit taller than his PB incarnation, but let's just say he FINALLY hit puberty and got a bit taller.
Some more updates, pardon the double post. Here's Adell, who got sprited because that's just his style.
Next up is an OC of mine, Susumu. He was mainly inspired by Lelouch Vi Britannia, so you may notice some similarities. Also, pettankos are his favorite.
Nice! I love the Adell comment.XD
Yeah, I saw some similarities in the sprites too. Very clever, using a warrior for the base, and resizing the hair. What do you use to make your sprites? I use the program "Paint".
Imageshack was being useless, so I had to find a new image hoster before posting sum updates.
I put Laharl and Mid-Boss on a diet. NOT the Fatkins diet, though. I also made Laharl's head a bit smaller to fit the body better. In other news, I have a 9 day vacation beginning today, so I plan to sprite a lot more.
Laharl looks much better, and so does Mid-Boss.^^ Do you think you might do any of Etna or Flonne?
For something made in Paint, these are very nicely done!
Paint is really the only way to go with sprites. It has less baggage, allowing one to focus more on working at the pixel level instead of being
distracted by bells and whistles.
Originally, I planned to not do any of characters that already had CIRBTH style sprites, but after seeing you inquire about it, I gave Etna's CIRBTH sprites and her PB sprites a good look-over, and the pompous critic in me found more and more flaws. So, here's the result:
From left to right: official Phantom Brave sprite, official CIRBTH sprite, and finally my version. I couldn't decide which of Etna's outfits I wanted my version to have, so I threw canon out the window and incorporated parts from each that I liked, along with my own refinements (much like I did with her body and head). I'll let the masses decide which Etna looks best.
I do plan on doing something similar for Flonne if she needs it, and perhaps also making an Angel Trainee version.
No Flonne yet, but I have some other new stuff.
The first one is a re-designed Star Mage more akin to the Disgaea 1 version. I also made an Aramis so Laharl isn't lonely all by himself in the short person club. Speaking of short, I shrunk Laharl some more, because I figure if I need to redo all of his sprites, I may as well make him a little more proportional.
Oh, nice! I like your version of Etna more then Nippon Ichi's! Sweet, more Aramis. I like the Star Mage too, and Laharl looks great.^^
Yeah, "Paint" is really a great program for making sprites. In fact, I don't think I've ever made one sprite without using "Paint"!
Now, for everyone's favorite tsundere not named Laharl.
Poor Rozy. Her love is doomed to fail because Adell does not like demons or girls.
Adell has got to be the best looking one of the bunch thus far.
You know, I was about to ask you if you were going to do any Rozalin, but nevermind, you already did it yourself!
I like how you did Rozalin's dress. I think you'll have to put Adell through Demon-Toleration school then, if you want them to be together.XD
Adell lives in Hicksville (gidoffamahLAWWWWN), so I don't think they have schools there. Oh well, I made Main Hero B so he won't be lonely
Speaking of MHB, I wonder what his actual name is? I'm prolly gonna start calling him Tenhi-tan, the "s" in "tenshi" being omitted because it's a he rather than a she. :p
...Isn't Main Hero B a female? Or just a guy with a girly voice?
Main Hero B is a trap. For example, he is affected (somehow) by Rozalin's ability. Also, here is Almaz Vi Britannia.
Hmm, Almaz's legs are a little bit thin compared to the others...Other then that, he looks okay.^^
Let's begin by sending Almaz to the gym. He's likely to get his head flushed down the toilet by the local jocks while he's there since he's such a
hero geek, but you can't commit multiple chicken abortions without cracking a few eggs.
Now for some new material...kinda. I gave Flonne a makeover much like I did for Etna. Again, the masses may judge accordingly. From left to right: PB cutscene sprite, CIRBTH sprite, my sprite.
I gave Aramis a makeover too, just a...different kind.
*Hides from torch and pitchfork wielding lynch mob*
I like how you made Flonne. Almaz still looks a bit off, though. Sounds like Almaz got his head stuck in the toilet so often, he only got fatter legs.XD
Maybe you should shorten him, and make his head bigger. I'm sure that should make some improvement.^^
Another attempt on Almaz. I'm experimenting on him more than Mao does o_o;;;
I also made the loliest of the lolis,
She's here to give a badass lecture on "Discapline With Love". ^_~
For today's work, here is the
cheerleader BELLY DANCER from Disgaea 3. She's definitely tsundere. All twintailed girls look like
As much as she's a cool class to use in D3, whoever designed her has probably never seen a real cheerleader. Ever. Due to having their head flushed down the toilet by the football team so much in school whenever they tried to go out on the field to see the cheerleaders. Therefore, we can determine that her original designer was in fact Almaz Vi Britannia.
Maybe you should make his head bigger, and make the eyes bigger. That might do some damage, sorry for being picky with the spritework...You're
getting there though.^^
"Paddlebutt-tan"?! Where'd that come from?! Raspberyl looks good. The "Belly Dancer" from D3 looks good too.XD
I'll prolly get on Almaz again in a bit...
As for Paddlebutt-tan, she is called that because her tail looks like a paddle. She likely uses it for Discapline With Love.
Today's work, though, is nothing Disgaea-related with the exception of the base sprite. Enjoy Vocaloid #1, Miku Hatsune. Vocaloids are awesome, because they are the first step to phasing out celebrities.
Nice job on Miku. Do you think you'll make Kagamine Rin & Ren? Those two are my favorite.XD
Ahh...So that's what Paddlebutt-tan is about...Funny.^^
Yeah, Vocaloids are nice, but It's still good to hear a real voice not make from a computer.
Hmm, it's cute although you could work a little with the palettes - they're not as lively as they could be. Try experimenting between crosses of
colors. (Darkest shade is bluish, lightest shade is greenish.)
Also, the hair -- give it more shadows in a stranded way so that it doesn't look so flat. Really, a palette change might be all that's needed, as they're pretty good anyhow. ^^
I'll admit that my biggest weakness in spriting has to do with shading/colors. Hence why scratchworks are not my thing :p
Couple updates tonight. First off, a battle mugshot for Susumu (in case it's not obvious from my signature):
Obvious Axel base is obvious. Also, slight updates to Laharl and Aramis, and more poses for Aramis. Note Laharl's baffled expression. This is because tsunderes have the amazing ability to have a one-person conversation, at someone else, and somehow everything becomes the someone else's fault by the end of it, even if they were totally innocent initially.
"You think I'm cute, Laharl?...S-stupid! It's not like I WANT you to think I'm cute! That was just OBLIGATION chocolate!"
Aramis' current moe points: trap, tsundere (seriously,
|Spoiler: Scroll over text to highlight spoiler text.|
Not bad sig, Kiruka. I also found the Laharl and Aramis thing funny.XD
Though, I have a huge question for you. Is Aramis a girl, or a guy?!
Here's some moetastic Aramis in a frilly pink maid outfit for those who didn't see in the Corrupt a Wish thread.
Laharl looks like he's gonna need to change his shorts when he gets back to the castle.
Oh my gosh!!! You actually made sprites of it!? Not only that, but you make it your avatar!?
I think i'm crying and laughing at the same time.X'D
Teehee, poor Laharl. gay guy coming through...
I LOVE it. It's really funny.^^
Nothing too exciting here; just tweaked versions of Laharl and Mao. Maybe Mao can get some more poses soon. I'll prolly update again later tonight.
Very minor tweaks + new poses for Susumu (including his shoulder eyes that he prefers to keep hidden). Along with him is the Netherworld's #1 supporter for updating the cheerleaders' wardrobe to something more cheerleadery, Takumi. Takumi is not only a cheerleader, and not only Susumu's favorite vassal, but also a trap (traps are pettankos that never "develop", says Susumu).
A note to Almaz Vi Britannia: THAT is what cheerleader outfits are supposed to look like.
Nice work, Kiruka. I like how you tweaked Laharl and Mao. Suzumu and Takumi look great, too. Think you'll make new poses for Adell and Rozalin
By the way, how long are you gonna have that avatar?! It's making me laugh everytime I see it!
Who indeed...Nice job on the sprites, I like the poses.^^
Yeah, Rozalin would take longer, and her dress is so hard to make! I can hardly draw her dress on paper, so I just put her in tennis clothing, another character's outfit, or a shorter version of her dress. I've only drawn her in tennis clothes once, though. Whatever.
Adell in tennis clothes...wouldn't be his style, would it? Yeah, I also suck at drawing Adell, I can never get his hair right.
Tennis clothes would indeed not suit Adell; he's too GAR to be crossdressed.
Speaking of things that don't suit Adell Here's Rozy. The hardest part was probably spriting the Noble Rose; had only a Disgaea 2
in-game sprite and some official artwork to go off of. Also note the obligatory noblewoman's laugh pose. Oh~-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho!!
Teehee, of course people like that need a laughing pose. You did a nice job on the gun too.XD
Nice work on Rozy. You did her dress quite well. Think you'll do walking sprites anytime soon?
By the way, could I please save your sprites to my computer for sprite comic purposes? Of course you would get credit if I put a comic on a website and used your sprites. Of course, that's kinda unlikely, having my comics on a site...
Thanks so much for your permission.^^
If you're having trouble finding backgrounds, I've got a folder full of them on my flashdrive from the first and second Disgaea, and a lot of other games. I've also got character cuts, but...they're kinda huge, and you'd need to use paint and clean it before use.
Not to mention, I've got sprites. Probably the only sprites I DON'T have is Disgaea 3, Soul Nomad character class sprites, and Raspsody 1 and 2 sprites.
What type of setting did you have for your comic?
Wha?! They're so cute in Lucky Star cheerleader clothes!
Yes, revenge for beating me up!XD
I changed Takumi's outfit a little bit and made some more poses as well. At that point, I thought to myself, "Maybe I should do to Susumu what I did
to Laharl". Little did I know that it would work TOO well and divide by zero at the internet. Also, a shirtless Susumu so one can actually see how
big he really is, rather than how big his poofy coat makes him look.
This is now Susumu (or "Sumeiko")'s official disguise for spying on his own allies to ensure that there are no potential traitors or enemy spies in the ranks. It's not like it'd be that hard for him; he's quite the actor and manipulator. Only downside is that since he's physically a wuss, forming the base of a cheerleader pyramid and using the "Lift" command is a bit of a pain.
At least now Takumi doesn't have to be all by himself in the cheerleading squad.
Nice job on the sprites, Kiruka. I really like the Sumeiko and Takumi's new poses.^^
Yeah, I have all of the Phantom Brave cutscenes backgrounds, but none of Soul Nomad. I also have some in battle backgrounds of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness(they're kinda low quality, though) but only cutscene backgrounds of Disgaea 2.
Hmm...don't you need an account on Megaupload for that...? Besides, I could always use the browse option.
Anyways, what do you mean by layers? Each background is completely put together in one huge picture per file.
I got them from this site. You need to be a member there(which I am), but it's not hard to apply. Sadly, they don't have ANYTHING having to do with the PCIRBTH game. They have a lot of stuff though, so it's worth joining.^^
There is, however, something close to the backgrounds that you could use.
Do these work for you(Warning, they're huge)? Funny picture, by the way.XD
Wow! Lots of new poses...Don't forget to give Laharl a hug too~! (NOT including Aramis.XD)
Oh, well that's cool. I'm glad you like the links.
Actually, I've never ever ripped anything from any game. I've just collected many things throughout the years.
The poses are nice, and it's good that Vyers(Etna:"You forgot Mid-Boss!")got some love for once.^^
Blah, there was no update yesterday since I was busy self-teaching myself how registering a channel and setting up a bot in mIRC works, but today
there is new material! Also, for ease of seeing now and in the future, small updates such as this one will be zoomed in 2x.
First and foremost, the Defender of Earth, Kurtis! I've always preferred him over that trio that consists of a large ham, a swimsuit model who does not find the vacuum of space to be cold, and the robot from Lost In Space after the timeskip. Sumeiko's taken a liking to him too.
Next two are Sumeiko and a
cheerleader belly dancer, who decided (maybe) to try out each other's outfits and hairstyles (to an
extent). The cheerleader looks content, but Sumeiko looks like he's gonna have a stroke. Oh well, more prizes from the Dark Hospital.
Finally, a winter cheerleading uniform for Sumeiko and Takumi. Pay close attention, National Football League and Almaz Vi Britannia: girls (and traps) can be bundled up for warmth AND still look good. If you don't know how to make that work, don't complain when your cheerleaders and/or belly dancers get frostbite from dancing at the Frozen River during that game of Zombie hockey and have to stay home for a day.
Nice job on the sprites, Kiruka! I like the winter cheerleading uniforms and Kurtis.^^
Think you'll do more Aramis?XD
Cheerleading outfits always excite me. =P
I liked the Kurtis one, also, but you need to give him an uber large nose. =P
Kurtis. Gigantic Nose. Very important. =P
Great job on your work, also! =P
Aramis will get some more attention at some point, for sure. Here's some stuff for today:
First off, a behind-the-scenes look at the winter cheerleading outfit; sweaterdress is worn underneath for even more warmth. I also made more
cheerleader belly dancer outfit poses for Sumeiko because I'm mean. Kurtis is there too to express that such an outfit on Sumeiko is
relevant to his interests (d'awwww, pat on the head!). Finally, gothic lolita Sumeiko, for MAXIMUM MOE.
Teehee, I don't think Sumeiko appreciates the belly-dancer outfit.XD
Nice job on the sprites.^^
Some new material.
A couple more poses for Sumeiko, an underwear only version for the fanservice (and the frostbite), as well as the Evil Academy girls' uniform (that is, if they had one). Also, walking poses for Kurtis. The last one I made to throw everyone for a loop, and to test my skill. I present Roukotsu, a zombie chimera created by Aramis as a sort of "ultimate vassal" to please Laharl. Roukotsu won't listen to anyone but Aramis though, so it's rather troublesome.
Also, new avatar, so Cranilla doesn't have chronic laughing syndrome anymore whenever she sees my avatar. OH WAIT. :p
You're just overdoing it, aren't you?!XD And what's with the frankenstein's monster of a zombie!?
It's nice you thought about me, but THAT's not any better.
Another curve ball after many days of slacking off; I missed spriting even more than a repeat offender misses the point. Here is the proof that plants
CAN be moe: the Alraune.
Complete with half a cheerleader outfit. Since Alraunes have that baffling physiology known as "no legs", no zettai ryouiki for you. Also tsundere. "S-s-s-stupid! It's not like I WANT to heal you or anything!"
Aww, she's so cute.^^
Think you'll do some Taro and Hanako? They deserve a snuggle.XD
Some more Laharls. I'm still alive!
Oh, those are sweet~!XD
hey can i edit the lahrl sprites i'd like to see what i can do
You may want to contact Kiruka since they havent been active on the forums for a while if you want a direct response from them.
Just letting you know,since I dont know if they mind that you edit their sprites or not.
gess il say this do u like gig?
