I'm not sure where this should go, so the mods can move it where they will.

 

https://www.spriters-resource.com/

 

So this is a website where people post sprite sheets they've ripped from games.  The range is huge.  There are sprites from the NES, from shooters like Doom, from adventures like Deponia, hundreds upon hundreds of sprites.  Also (and core to my suggestion here) the website serves as a repository for custom sprite sheets.  You can look up, for example, "Metroid Customs" or "Pokemon Customs" to find sprite sheets not from any one particular game, but created by fans for other people to use as they will.

 

I know that people on BZP have created dozens of sprite 'kits' for use with comics.  However, many of the links to these old kits lead me to 404 error pages.  I suspect the pages have been deleted from BZP forever.  However, I would like to propose starting a page on The Spriter's Resource to hold these sprite kits - call it, maybe, "Bionicle Customs".  This would have the twofold advantage of both preserving the sprite kits both on TSR and BZP, and collecting them all in one place so someone looking for sprites doesn't have to rummage through the bowels of the forum to find them.

 

In short: what do you all think of this idea?

Pretty sure those old sprite kits were lost in the Dataclysm. Anyway, that sounds like a great idea! ^^

Some are still running around on Brickshelf (here's a big Rayg one, and an incomplete Razor).

I'll poke at some of my old Biotech backups, might have sheets circa 07-09 in there.

Would I be free to upload these sheets, then, or should I track down the creators and ask their permission first?  I don't want to get into any trouble, just to preserve the sprites.

 

EDIT: The people on TSR say I should ask permission first, so if anyone can help me contact the creators of old sprite kits it'd be very helpful.  I'll start pestering Soran and T1S first.

 

EDIT 2:  T1S gave me permission to upload his Okotomation kit.  The sheets are pending approval right now.  In the meantime I'm still looking for sheets (if nothing else, I'm backing them up on my PC) so keep 'em coming!

As a sprite comic author, I have a few kits lying around on my hard drive.

As for Razor sprites, I know of few more complete than this one that I put on my Brickshelf ages ago. I'll root around and see what I can find later.
