    ChoW 213 :: 8bit Game Character Redesign!



    ROUND #213:: 8bit Character Redesign Challenge!


    DESCRIPTION


    8bit Character Redesign



    We are going to try something different this week: an assignment brief for a fictional game company!

    A very cool and amazing game company has decided to make a sequel of a very old franchise, dating back to the 80’s. They need complete new redesigns for the 8bit characters to make them ready and fitting for the new generation of consoles and graphic power! And they hire YOU to make these redesigns.

    They selected ten 8bit characters that need a cool redesign.

    Please choose one or more of these and make an awesome new version!

    ChoW 213 :: 8bit Game Character Redesign!

    Cantaurman – Megaman 6
    Firebrand – Gargoyles Quest
    Barry – Resident Evil Gaiden
    Black Mage – Final Fantasy
    Gorgon – Castlevania 3
    Splash Woman – Megaman 9
    Yama – Digital Devil Story
    Cellica – Fire Emblem Gaiden
    (thanks to sprites-resource.com for these images)

    Keep in mind the following:

    - Be creative, since new technology gives character designs almost no boundaries!
    - BUT the character must be recognizable as the original 8bit one. (think of similar colors, shapes etc)
    - Try to create your own original design, not simply something you saw on the internet. This is a real challenge for concept artists, so go for it!

    Good Luck!

    I had to go with Yama, as she was the only character from a game I had never heard of.
