Shiny Game Sprites
« on: October 08, 2023, 05:20:06 pm »
This is a slightly odd request, but I do bead art, I posted them here in the past, but I wanted to try something I'd seen before, which is when you iron the beads, you take something called "Diffraction Sheets", it's a clear, holographic, sheet that when you iron, it transfers that holographic aspect to the beads, making it look like a holographic pokemon card or holofoil comic cover.

What I need help with remembering is video game sprites that give off that sort of vibe, where they get flashy looking, from the NES/SNES era.  Genesis could be possible too.  The best example of this is the Super Star from Super Mario Bros.  I kinda need help finding stuff like that.  Others that maybe I can think of off the top of my head would be like Mega Man X when he's holding a blast, same for Samus with her charge beam.  I don't just want ANY and ALL stuff like this, but stuff from notable characters that could fit within this would be greatly appreciated than me spending an hour or more digging through dozens and dozens of different games lol

Super Star: https://www.spriters-resource.com/nes/supermariobros/sheet/52569/
Mega Man X: https://www.spriters-resource.com/snes/mmx/sheet/1225/

And what game for Samus are you talking about?

Oh sorry, no, I know where to get the sprites, I go there all the time, I'm asking for help on finding other games that have the similar elements to them, like the flashing when Mario uses the Super Star or Mega Man and Samus charge up and hold a blast, so I can replicate that idea with a holofoil layer.  I can only think of a couple off the top of my head, but I know there's a bunch that might be notable game characters of that era that do the same.

Would some Sega Saturn sprites work? I'm thinking of spells being used by the cast of games like Magic Knight Rayearth and/or Albert Odyssey.

Yeah that would cool, anything from that general era would be good as long as it looks kinda neat.  Like I'm thinking of doing some of the Pokemon cards from those early GB trading card games, and then making them look holo.
