(Preview)  SoE - Gotta Wait For It by HeartGear (Preview)  SoE - Gotta Wait For It by HeartGear
DISCLAIMER - THIS IS THE PREVIEW
The finished comic won't be up until Monday or Tuesday.
Scratch that. Should be up tomorrow.
Flash is a beast among beasts, but I think I about got it.

I decided to try something that would work well for the next page, which is turning out to take me WAY more time than I anticipated. I'm animating this in Photoshop, but I think it's about time I switched to flash...

Enjoy the preview. The actual page will be up in the next few days.

Best

Sounds like a fun game project. Too bad I suck at sprite work. I'd probably wait till the comic is further along though.

Awesome preview! Was there an actual sprite of Peach that you could alter to look like Samus or did you create this one yourself?
This is a really good view of what you've been working on in the classic 16-Bit format. Brilliant idea to do this and you pulled it off wonderfully! :D

HeartGear confirmed a few posts down in my response chain that this started life as a Peach sprite from the SMB RPG on the SNES, but had to make alterations to it (hair, leg motion, eyes... color).

Oh, thank you! :hug:
It's very well done. Looks like it's an official sprite from the game.
Thanks to this I can see SOE as an old SNES game if someone were to take the time to emulate it. I'd definitely love to play it. ^_^

Somehow I don't think "play from the Helpless Princess' perspective" would be very successful outside of a number of us "Damsel in Distress" fans. ;)

It would be worth a shot. ;D
Besides, throw in the rest of Samus's adventure as we'll soon see how the rest of it plays out and we might have something here. ;)

I mean Metal Gear Solid had a scene where Snake gets tortured (I think) and you actually have to play it out and that game did pretty well when coupled with other good gameplay.

I know sounds like a bit of a pipe dream, but I want to keep dreaming about it until it becomes a reality damnit, lol. XD

Your Metal Gear Solid reference has me imagining Samus, still all tied up but mobile, snake crawling her way around and trying to be stealthy and hiding from recapture.... XD

However, her choice of using a box every time she hides leads to her getting caught more and more. ;P

Or, more amusingly, using a box to hide in randomly alters the restraints (keeping them at the same "level", which is set by how many times you were caught) or something silly like that.

Awesome! Very surprising. Didn't think you had it in you. By the way, what happened to the cage Samus jumped out of?
Thanks for reading.

"PRINCESS"? Shouldn't it say "SAMUS"?
Either way, looks interesting. Really curious about the finished page. And I think I hate you now for teasing us so much.

*LOL* I don't know if you grabbed the sprite from one of the SMBs and recolored it, or made your own from scratch, but that is perfect!

It's a recolor of a sprite from Super Mario RPG, a SNES game.

I thought so, but I wasn't totally sure, so I figured I'd ask. :)

jovial's right about the recolor, but I also had to edit some things for continuity. The gag, the feet placement, and the hair all needed substantial changes, and I gave her angry eyes instead of the normal worried look.

Thanks for the comment though. I'm glad people seem to like it. ^_^

TCPolecat7 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well yes, I figured you had to alter it. I mean Princess Aran isn't a dead ringer for Peach, she just has the same sort of dress... plus if I remember the sprite, she was scissoring her legs when she kicked, which would go against those lovely ankle shackles you gave her.

Oh yes, I think we indeed "like" it. ^_^
