The Hero/Actor Recolor Project


What is this?/ Just got home and decided I would start up this tiny little project that I wanted to do for a LONG time. Some might remember my villager recolor topic a long time ago. Well this time, this is dedicated to the hero/actors of RMVX. Not only are you going to get recolored charsets, but facesets to go with them.

Why make this?/ I wanted to give everyone alternative options to what your heroes look like.......... ...okay.. to be perfectly honest, I think I was just getting sick of looking orange-haired Ralph or purple-haired Elmer as the main hero for EVERY new game that was being made. So to everyone who wants to make a new game, please consider looking at this first. : )

When does it update?/ I'm going to try to go for 1-2 times a week. Just because I'm pretty busy most of the time. But updates will go from left-to-right order starting with Actor1. It will keep going all the way until all the actors are done. Once it's all finished, I'll ask a mod to close it.

Do you need credit?/ I've always been pretty 'meh' when it comes to crediting someone JUST because they recolored a charset/faceset they didn't make themselves. I just don't get it. So the answer it no. These charsets/facesets are credit-free. : ) All I ask if that you don't post these up anywhere else or claim that you made them. That's just not cool. If you want to show them to other people, please just link to this thread.

I hope you like/will use!

First up is Actor02-03.




Next it Actor02-04. She's so cute.




Last, but not least, Actor02-05. You can tell this is where I started to slack because I was running out of color combination ideas. So it doesn't look very good. Sorry.




Actor02-06.




Actor02-07! Old.. wizard.. hermit.. guy.





And then Actor02-08. I'm a fan of hers, just because she's a character in The Drunken Paladin. XD




First up is Actor03-01.




And next is Actor03-02.




Actor03-03 and Actor03-04 for you.

I am evil, I know.
But I was just wondering, if I wrassled up all the Ralph stuff - on horseback, downs, etc, would you do a recolor set of those, too?

Here it is, and thanks for considering it.

Well.. if it's fanmade, as long as I have the names of the people who originally made them so I could credit them, then yeah. I could have a go at it. The more resources, the better. : )

Also, finished two actors today. Actor01-02 and Actor01-03. I just need to finish Actor01-04's facesets and she'll be done too. Here's the other two meanwhile.







(I guess I should start fixing up the first post so it won't look like a wreck when I start finishing more stuff.)

Thank you for doing all of this. It's very helpful for those of us who can't recolor worth anything ^^. (I can recolor sprites ok, but facesets are a nightmare!) While my project is currently on hold while I rethink the story, my main characters "were" actors 1-2 and 1-3, so I may just end up using a couple of these. biggrin.gif

Thankyou very much. If people like them, then I'm happy enough. : )

Here's the recolor for Actor01-04. (Ulrika's always been a badass, in my opinion.)




I probably won't work on anymore today because I need to work on a picture for a friend, but I'll get around to Ralph when I'm done, grandma. : )

Dripping ruby rain
Leaking from a crystal heart
hanging among the trees

A heart of bright gold
Corroded em'rald green
Pierced with icy lance

A light in the dark
Embraced by the coldest depths
Refused hope's last wish

Moon in the morning --
A sil'vry cresent of light
On an orange canvas

With a pen in hand
I can raise nations from dust
Or tear it to ash

Never clsoe your mind
Free your imagination
Unleash your true dreams

A single picture
A moment in time held still
Always to be seen

There, an apple sits
Dark red, the color of blood
Crying once bitten

Skies of baby blue
In the infinite beyond
Always out of reach

A plastic device
Warmed by my aching fingers
Texting to my friends

A bright ray of light
Breaking through the clouds above
Upon a trash heap

Rain falls from on high
Crashing to the ground, it drops
Music to my ears

A pink pen, why's that?
I ponder this and answer
A pink pen, why not?

To be who I am
Is to disagree with what
Others think I am

Throw rocks at the water
Watch the ripples that follow
Waves that shake the world

Sit in the corner
Set your tears free on the world
Drown away sorrow

Ice-encrusted hair
Blowing with the frozen snow
A story to tell

I know there's a lot of them, but its really only a small selection of what I've written ;P

Sorry for the wait. It's been pretty busy.

Actually, I just forgot about this thread.

*cough* But erm.. I managed to get two more done. Just two more and the first set of actors will be completed.

Here's Actor01-05.




He was kind of a challenge to think of colors for, especially the way his default armor is colored. But that's the best I got.

Next is Actor01-06. She's another favorite of mine.

Well.. this isn't a recolor shop. But if I find time, I could try. But you need to be a bit more descriptive than that. What about his clothes?

I don't really know what that means. Different races like what? Elves?
I'm not sure... I'm not going to do much else until I have all the actors recolored. After that, then I could try different things with them.

Well.. it's easy because I have photoshop. It's an extremely powerful program that let's you do things like this in a breeze.

Thankyou for the comments, guys. I appreciate it.

Edit: Finished the last two for the Actor01 sheet. Here they are.







Guess I should edit the first post now. :P

Really great recolors Antares, I just have a couple questions about recoloring facesets.

So I have Photoshop CS3 and I have a general idea of how to recolor things, but whenever I do them they look no where near as crisp and clean as yours do. What I normally do is just highlight area the I want changed with the magic wand and then change its hue/saturation. This doesn't always bring out good results. laugh.gif

I was just wondering what you normally do when you are recoloring a facest.

Truth be told, I don't use the magic wand OR the hue/saturation. I have photoshop7.0, but for CS3, there shouldn't be anything too different from what I'm doing. (I have no idea how gimp works, so I don't know if it's the same for that too.)

I use alot of layers. For instance, to start changing hair..
1. I make a new layer
2. Select the polygonal lasso tool and make go over the hair.
3. In the new layer, I fill the polygonal selection with the color I want.
4. In the layer window, I use the drap down menu and switch it from normal to color. (If it ends up being too light or too dark, I make a duplicate of that layer and put it to screen or multiply depending on what I shade I want. And then just adjust opacity.)
5. Then I press ctrl.G to group it with the faceset and make a new layer to start with other clothing and such.

I'm pretty sure that people will consider that to be a longass task to do, but I'm comfortable with it and it just makes the colors appear much smoother as opposed to just selecting a piece and using hue/saturation. Hope that helps. : )

I'm having a little trouble with these steps. I used the drop down menu and changed to color and it did end up being too dark, so I made a duplicate layer but I don't know what you mean by putting it to screen or multiplying it? I adjusted the opacity though and made it look better. Also I tried ctrl.G to group but it didnt do anything so I went up to layer and grouped it that way but the original color (one that was too dark) is the one showing up, so I had to go and delete that layer and just keep the duplicated one with the lower opacity.

Using the Polygonal lasso tool is a little weird too. Must be just the harsh lines it makes and you cant really wrap exactly around the pixels unless you really took your time on it.

But yeah this is what I came up with on my first try (forgot to lasso around the ear so its kinda pink lo)l:

Antares, I updated my brassy request =) to include EB's downs.
Everything is credited. You have been doing such super stuff!
(I can provide links to original posts if you prefer...)

Hope you will consider it down the road. (It is for the main char for my big game.
I have caught so much greif for using ralph, so I was hoping for a super recolor,
so the Ralph haters will still play my game.......)
