Hal as Orange Lantern
Saturday, August 15, 2009
Here's the second palette idea I've had for our Hal Jordan character to commemorate the Blackest Night crossover. Still no download yet, and I'm thinking "smart palette" might not happen... his current palette is pretty difficult to work with, and I don't really feel much like hand-editing hundreds of sprites. But I will do enough to make all of the palettes work, anyway.
As with the red palette, Orange Lantern Hal will have several changes beyond the outfit and construct colors:
- Custom intro and win/lose poses (the custom intro you see in the above shot is courtesy of my talented friend and ScruffyDragon forum regular and contest winner, Amon-Ra)
- More defensive stance animation
- The Plasma Sphere special will behave differently: instead of holding the opponent in place, it'll draw them closer to Hal for a follow-up attack
- I may alter/replace one of the hypers, too. Not sure yet.
Next up, yellow!

Don't sweat the "smart palette" Having custom intros and attacks is a really great addition.
Good job so far!
