Classic Kyo Kusanagi sprite upgrading
« on: March 02, 2009, 08:55:30 AM »
It's always annoyed me how, most of the time, when SNK uses the '96-'98 sprite set of Kyo, they never actually bother retouching any of his sprites so they don't look like absolute crap. The closest we got to a full retouch was '99 Kyo, though that was a completely different outfit.

So I've come up with this as a possible set of upgraded sprites:


On the left is the original, oh-so-re-used KoF '94 sprite.  On the right is my upgrade using parts from the '99-2k2 outfit.  Most of the upper pants is guesswork thanks to the fact that Kyo's shirt cuts off at a different point.  Any other problems I'd just attribute to lack of experience with the style.

Swap '98 Kyo stances head with new Kyo head, that would be useful :)

I like the shoes on the original better, personally. Besides that, it's a nice and much needed update.
