Hey guys, I made a few Sonic 1/2/CD sprites of Tails, for you guys, especially the ones from the Sonic CD 2011 rerelease which I didn't made. These will be perfect for the player sprite style's Sonic 1/CD and Sonic 2 Tails, I hope you like it.
Ah, ChelseaCatGirl. I've looked at some of your past work with the Genesis Cream sprites, and I heard of your assistance with E-122-Psi's Sonic 3 and Amy hack. You've done great sprite work from what I've seen! In saying that...
...I don't know how much use these sprites will be. As you said, several of these sprites are straight from CD 2011. The problem with using those is that they are (supposedly) Chimpo's work, and I don't want to ruffle any feathers by using them without consent. Considering I don't think he even shows up on Retro anymore, I don't know how I could get in touch. Because of that, I'm just going to leave them by the side.
Looking at the custom sprites there, they appear to be just a cut/paste of what's available from the CD 2011 set, especially with the carrying sprites (that o_o look, which doesn't seem to quite fit with the fact that he's carrying a hedgehog who's probably heavier than he looks). The biggest offender, though, appears to be the spinning platform sprites. Four of the seven are the CD 2011 sprites, but I'm mainly looking at two of the other sprites in that set. They're just the S3K sprites with previously used tails appended right to them. Not only does having full-size, stationary tails look off when riding a spinning platform, but when two consecutive pairs of sprites have the exact same
tails, things start to appear "sloppy." I'm only saying that about these particular sprites, of course. Plus that second sprite in the set looks nice.
I could also mention that Tails in S3K/S3C doesn't have a mahogany border, but that's besides the point. Anyways, I've already made changes to the S1/2 Tails sprites that need them, particularly those that hold that "True S3 Tails" style. I think everyone will be happy to see that the particular tired face used in CD 2011 and the sprites you posted will make it to the next S3C revision. That particular face originated from the Sonic Crackers ROM (not Chimpo's original work...unless he was working with SEGA in 1994), something that I didn't even notice until after the last release.
Thanks for the sprites, regardless! Always happy to see work on sprites for S3C from others.
