As the years go on by, I keep improving and improving, continuing to sprite whatever latest thing I want to do. And now, as January comes to a close, I feel like pumping one more Kingdom Hearts-related thing, to round out all the improved stuff I've done.
In late 2015, I made a custom sprite sheet for Kingdom Hearts 3D's HUD. It was decent, but now it's not really up to par with the other two KH HUDs I've made last week or so. So it needs a well-deserved upgrade - and it didn't even take me that long, either!
So I'm still in a Kingdom Hearts mood, so I decided to do the basic battle HUD for Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. I mean sure, there's already one out there, but I felt like doing my own spin on it. Here, you can see the complete Player HUD, the Command Deck, enemy HP, Shotlocks (tiny edition!), and the D-Link menu. Overall, not too shabby.
It's been over three and a half years since I first began spriting, close to two years since my DeviantART account began existing, and over a year since my Weebly came into existence. And in that time, I've made many wonderful sprites, but none have been as prominent as my Kingdom Hearts III HUD sheet.
Oh hey, it's 2017 now! Sorry I've been away for two straight months, but I really wasn't in the spriting mood - there was a lot of distractions in my life. Grades, Star Rush, Pokemon Sun... It's been a bit of a wild ride. But it's the new year now, so why not start things off with a bang? Or rather, a redo?
Now that I'm finally getting back on track with this project (not that long now!), here's what I have done of the Guide Menu. I'm actually splitting it up into two parts - the buttons, and the content. I'm doing this to try and condense the sprite sheet size and make sure I get this out faster.
It's been seven long months since I last worked on this project - but at last, I have finished with the next part of my Paper Jam Main Menu.
It's not a very big sheet, as you can see - basically the only *real* work I did came from the eleven new icons. This really should have been done last spring, but unfortunately I was burned out from doing the bigger things first, so this unwittingly took two thousand forevers to finish.
Hope you end up finding some use for it, no matter how few uses this will probably find.
So today, I decided that my Mock-ups page was becoming too crowded with mock-ups to keep using and adding new ones, so I decided to split them up and cut out all the fat. The mock-ups menu now consists of - in order - Mario mock-ups, Sonic mock-ups, KH mock-ups, and AA/Misc. mock-ups.
Each of the pages now use galleries too, instead of slideshows, to showcase the mock-ups better without a caption box blocking the bottom part. I hope this will be a better viewing experience for all my loyal visitors (if anyone is still here, reading these blog posts that I'm sure no one cares about).
In the future, I hope that I can get some more sprites done - I have Kirby Triple Deluxe sprites I should really be finishing at some point, but I just haven't had the motivation to even do so. (I'm only six or so icons away, and I just lose my motivation now? Why must I be so fickle?)
Well, that's really it for now. Hope to see more sprite sheets come out soon, because I should really get some done...
It's been a while since my last blog post (FOUR MONTHS!), though that could be due to my laziness with getting things done. (I still have a Kirby Triple Deluxe HUD and a Paper Jam Main Menu to finish! And when I said I'd do the latter over the summer, too!) But hey, I'm back now, and I'm here with something pretty awesome.
I'm FieryExplosion - a casual gamer and avid spriter. I've been spriting since 2013, and have plenty of sheets. I enjoy fanfiction, reading books, and drawing.
