Hello everyone, I’m new to FEU.
First of all, I apologize if I do anything wrong, or if my syntax or grammar is imperfect.
Then, I’m not very active, so if you respond to my post, there could be a long time before I reply.
Furthermore, I am currently studying and school is taking a lot of my time and effort, being the cause of the point above so I just do this as a hobby during the holidays, I’m not a spriter at all and don’t intend to be one so please don’t ask me submissions because I will not do them (and I don’t have the skill as well).
With that out of the way, let’s dive into the real topic.
I want to make a ROM Hack, however, I lack the skill of doing it and the time as well, you will probably notice a large number of playable characters which is due to the story being separated into 4 parties, adding to the complexity of my project being overly ambitious.
Still, I made some GBA portraits by splicing and wanted to share them.
I have to give credit to TheFlyingMinotaur (on Reddit) for making the Fire Emblem Portrait Maker that I have been using as a base to make most of my characters, the link to his following post here: Fire Emblem Portrait Maker: Now with More Sprites!.
I also need to thank the user @7743 for making FEBuilder GBA and for helping me with this software. I recommend checking @Klokinator for the very useful feature that is the [FE-Repo]: GitHub - Klokinator/FE-Repo: A public graphics repository for Fire Emblem portraits, battle animations, map sprites, and other assorted graphics people might like to use.
Here are the characters, I might add more in the future, if you have any advice, comments, feedback, or anything regarding those (the characters used, their personality, backstory), please feel free to contact me on Discord (Matthieu#4396) even though I might not answer your message in the shorter delays.
They are not free to use however you can download and edit them as long as you make them different enough from the original in the latter case, except for those with F2U, which are also F2E and their names and personalities might shift based on how you want them to be, only for those under the “F2U” label, please.
Beowolf/Beowulf from FE4. I know he doesn’t exactly match his original appearance and I apologise for it. I tried to make a hybrid between the multiple references I used. I hope despite his original touch, you still enjoy the mug that was originally created because none could be easily found in the GBA style format.
- Summer Darin
- New Year Gunnthrá
Now, some variations of @L95 Skeleton:
The original portrait:
All characters (generics excluded)
Characters with details
- Eight Legends
Geesinimo: The charismatic and mighty leader of the Great Eight. Also known as the Savior by the people.
Meddalwch: The sweet and mother figure amongst the Great Eight. Her love is universal. Also known as the Peacemaker.
Leitsung: The cold tactician of the Great Eight. He cares deeply for his sister, Meddalwch and his wife, Katadiki above all else.
Katadiki: The intrepid speed demon of the Great Eight. Always looking for a challenge. Also known as the Pirate Queen.
Seikaku: The representative of the field tribe. His stealth made him earn the nickname of the spy.
Renhet: The pure and innocent lady of the Great Eight. She symbolises hope for the human race.
Janakari: A deep source of knowledge and a valuable ally. His creations made him worthy of the title of Architect.
Altaeaqul: Being known as the Blacksmith, this distant woman was able to make the Legendary weapons of the Great Eight.
Regarding the following characters:
- Matthieu: Sharing my name, could be considered a self insert so I might change that in the future.
Cathia: I wonder if her forehead is too big.Issue fixed (check the fourth reply)
- Isabelle: One of my first characters ever being an Isadora recolour, I added a ponytail and moved her slightly to the left to match the requiring box.
- Jeff: His hat was too big and didn’t fit in the requiring box so I had to scrap it, here is what he originally looked like
- Safria: One of my first characters ever being a Leila Reskin, I added some makeup.
- Bastian: One of my first characters ever being a Murdock Recolor, I added some scars to make him unique.
I deliberately did not show every character to avoid major spoilers in case my project could come to an end but bear in mind that there is more. But if you’re intrigued, I can tell you there are at least 3 units per class line.
Thanks for reading me.
