What I've been losing sleep over...

Yeah, I'm not done yet and I know nobody reading this is interested, but this is why I've been ded/MIA for awhile. Making these little guys is addictive.

Yey Prince of Tennis! Can't wait for the OVA...

Yeah, I drew them, one pixel at a time. When I first got this video game I was enthralled by the cuteness of the character sprites, and recently I decided I could live without having my own to play with no longer. What's on that page took me prolly a little over a week if you strung the days (not hours) I worked on them end-to-end, but really I started on these before the holidays.

And thanks. ^_^

Oh, and in case it's not clear, they're exact replicas of the video game sprites, as close as I could get them (There are DS emulators out there, but they're not up to handling the graphics of commercially-produced games yet. And besides, if I could screencap them with an emulator I wouldn't bother drawing them by hand).

Well, except one guy, who looked a little weird in the video game, and even weirder once I extracted his head from it and put it on a plain background. So there were some (extremely minor) alterations. And really, everywhere I've got one pixel, the DS screen has 4, so the colors are sometimes fudged, but in general the particular heads I used (from the character selection/gallery) have each 4-pixel block one color, so that wasn't a big deal really.
