    After Season 2

    February 9, 2017 by AllHailPinwheel

    There will be no new story lines, nothing to continue after the Serpent and Odin's defeat. Shouldn't we put out a cohesive follow up like Season 3 and new Spec Ops (I know of the Spec Ops already made and am not ripping on those, FYI) I see that there are hundreds of unused sprites from various talented people. If someone needs a storyline or dialogues, then I will be delighted to supply them. So, what do you say?

    Hey guys,

    In case anyone didn't read the post, here's the matchups for this round.


    GladeusExMachina/Hero vs. Lady Liberty

    Alyx Burne vs. Ray Penta

    Kaileia Nir'bak vs. Aaron Taylor

    This is a knockout contest. Whoever writes the better fanfic moves on, the other person doesn't. There's only two finishers, it's not placed like the other contests. However, since we have an uneven number, the 'fan favorite' of the losers will also be permitted to continue to the next round.

    If anyone doesn't remember the rules, they are here.

    Post your entry here between 11/5/2016 and 11/30/2016 for submission. I'll then add in polls, and we'll have a 'voting' week where you can choose the winners.

    Tutorial:Move Icons

    October 7, 2016 by Loupi

    In this tutorial i'll show you how to make move icons for your movesets. As always i use Photoshop for these.

    There's two ways to make a move icon:

    1. Edit an existing one.
    2. Create one from scratch.

    For this tutorial i'll be doing a move icon for Rick Grimes. So Level 1 move is your typical Gun attack. Depending on the character and move you might need to search a bit for a hand/gun that fits your preference.

    I'll use part of the sprite to create the icon. So open the ' and paste the sprite below it.

    Create a new layer and fill it with any color of your preference.








    To fill a Layer with a color click Edit > Fill. Click on Use and select either Foreground, Background or ColorForeground and Background colors are the ones on the left, the tool sidebar.

    Alternatively hit …

    September 28, 2016 by Wynter's Sloth

    Yup it's the title, so I'm cancelling this because I just don't have the time for this, and people would complain about their characters and everything. It could still be made with collab of everybody that way people can be happy with their character's use, but thats more of a WCC and it'd take ages. Thank you to everyone that allowed their character's use. Sorry it's cancelled :/

    Hello to anyone reading this, i'm going to be creating a 1st season of a story only with user's OCs, it'll be the same as MAA's ones, 12 chapters, 6 missions, tasks, dialogues, all of it. It's mostly just for getting experience in editing and my story telling and I think it'd be cool.

    I still have to finish all of mine, but that gives me time to get responses on this.

    Now i'm asking for permission to use your characters, heroes and villains, leave a comment on who I can use.

    They can't be alternate universe characters or have any huge connection to other storys/franchises, like my Scarlet Spider but characters such as Avatar are fine, personal characters are allowed too such as Wynter's Sloth/Hero. Make sure your characters are finished and i…

    Some future Projects

    July 24, 2016 by Sunder4321

    So right now my Secret Invasion SO is still a WIP, but I've got a next SO working on, Special Operations - The Gauntlet. It's about the Infinity Gauntlet and it's Infinity Gems being gathered by Thanos, of course, who will make his "grand comeback" after his lack of appearance. This will also introduce some new characters familiar to us and have appeared in the Infinity Gauntlet event, who are Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock, and Death.


    During the events of Secret Invasion, while the Skrulls are keeping the heroes busy, Thanos made use of the Terrigen Bomb Maximus the Mad gave him (during SO 23) to control minions and get them to find the 6 Infinity Gems. He then captured Adam Warlock, wielder of the Gauntlet, and took the Gauntlet for himself…

    Marvel: War Zone

    July 22, 2016 by Truelegden
    "The Marvel Universe is besieged by war, now it's time to choose a side"

    Hi, and welcome to my Pitch for a 1st/3rd-Person Shooter Game based in the Marvel Universe. My idea is to drop players in a war zone in Iconic areas of the Marvel Universe, including Wakanda, Knowhere, Asgard, and the Avengers Mansion.

    You get to choose a side, Good vs. Evil. You choose to be a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and play as iconic heroes such as Captain America, Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Iron Man. On the Other hand you could choose to play on the side of villainy playing as H.Y.D.R.A. or A.I.M., and in certain areas other kinds of villain infantry. You'd get to choose Iconic Villains such as The Red Skull, M.O.D.O.K., and Green Goblin.

    So this isn't really a tutorial, more of a way I do some sprites, but you can count it as a tutorial if you want. Hoping this isn't another one of those boring blog posts.


    Concept Art. It isn't really the first thing people think of if their making sprites. But, Concept Art is where it all starts. Playdom started using Concept Art for their heroes to style their sprites, whether its the design or the position.

    You might or might not have noticed my new Spec Op going on in here, so I'd like to show you the process of how I'll be making the sprite of my Spec Op's Reward Hero, Echo. You probably don't know who the heck that is, so go to her wiki page to know more info. I'll be using Concept Art (obviously, its the main reason for this whole blo…

Ugh, they even got the cool sprite and moveset done: Thundra as a Worthy gif. They're going to make Ghost Rider the Worthy instead, so I hope this one will be cool.

    Hello there ! Welcome to Sunder4321's tutorial on how to make shadows on defaced sprite parts. Josh27 asked me how to do them, so Josh and to anyone else reading this, I hope this helps.


    NOTES BEFORE STARTING:

    • You're gonna need to have an image editor software for this. Right now I'm using Paint.net which is my default image editor, but you can use other, more familiar image editors (examples are Photoshop or GIMP).
    • This tutorial is for shadows. For making custom-sprites, go here. I also suggest you read that first before reading this because it will give you more insight.



    For this tutorial, I'll be doing Modern Hisako Ichiki aka Armor, and I have already started her out as seen here.

    1. I mostly do Marvel and DC, but anything else is fine.
    2. You can go crazy with the request/s, I don't mind (e.g. Donald Trump?).
    3. OCs must have a layout or a description of how the character looks like.
    4. Lockboxes, Icons and gear are accepted. Just be patient.
    5. Please ask permission when using my sprites. No need for credit, but always appreciated.
    6. Now I'll start adding a limit for your requests. 10 requests per person. Lesser requests, the better. If you have more than 10 requests, I'd still do them, but that'll take waaay longer.
    7. 10 requesters at a time. If you're, like, the 11th requester or higher, your requests will be tackled after I finish the first 10 people's requests.
    8. Don't steal.
    9. DON'T STEAL.
    10. DON'T EVER STEAL.

I felt the color and the shading of her legs were a bit rushed, so I fixed some of the properties there in the crotch area. I also changed her face, I think it looks much better now. I also tilted the arms and the legs and made the gold have a little bit more gold-l…

    Tutorial:Skin Tone

    January 10, 2016 by Loupi

    User Josh27 has asked me to make a tutorial on how i change a part in a sprite to look like skin be it either light or dark etc. 

    (Note: Some images are cropped by the wikia so open them in a new window to view them in full-size.)

    So we open a random sprite. I'll be using Crystal for this tutorial. 

    If you're going for a specific character then it's a good idea to use the eyedropper tool to select a skin color right from an image of said character.
