Matthieu's Sprites

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.

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
    Jeff
  • 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.

Welcome to FEU! If you’re ever interested in getting dedicated help on any of these (I’d totally help you with Jeff if I had the knowledge, that hat is amazing), or you just have an insatiable lust for more knowledge of everything or you just want to meet the best user of FEU ObsidianDaddy, you can join our Discord server! Although, you might already be there and I might be goofing because it’s 2:30 AM.

Lots of these, much like everything else the Portrait Maker tends to create, are shoddy at best and at other times the neck decides to just not exist. FEU’s many portrait makers, like Busk or Obsidian would be really well suited to making these more unique than the maker’s. I love the colors you’ve chosen for many of them!

First of all, thank you very much for your reply.
I joined the FEU server. No, I wasn’t on the server before, and regarding time, I might not live in the same region as you so don’t worry about it.
Then, as I wrote before, I’m not very active generally so I will respond whenever I can, and I’m still on holiday until this sunday so I will do my best to be active while I can.
Also, regarding Jeff’s hat, I cannot receive the merit of this work considering it was already in the portrait maker so TheFlyingMinotaur was probably the one who did it, actually I only spliced it and recreating it on the mini portrait but thank you regardless.

Thank you once again, I hope to see you sometime on the server, have a nice day, until next time.

Hello everyone and happy new year!
Quick update regarding my work. I have finished making every playable character’s portrait for my project. The number is a high 65 but as written before, they will be split into 4 parties. And it’s true my portraits are spliced and are not perfectly refined, despite all of that I’m satisfied with them for the most part. I’m not an artist, nor a spriter. I’m not done yet, I have some NPCs and enemies to make and of course coding.
For obvious reasons, not every single character will be shown.

Then, I have made several minor updates (mostly colour updates) in my first post however I doubt anyone could notice them, hence, in the future, I’ll make a new reply for every update as well as editing my original post.

Here are some examples of the changes I have made since last time.

Colour changes (On the left the old one and on the right the new one):
Clover alphaClover beta
Jinia alphaJinia beta
Léo alphaLéo beta
Ulrich alphaUlrich beta

Design changes (On the left the old one and on the right the new one):

Palso Old EPalso

Paolo Old EPaolo

New characters:

Have a great day and thank you for reading me.

(Edit: Forgot to add Suzanne as a new character and I also want to show Barney)

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing great.
I apologize, there are no new characters this time around. However, I updated the colors of almost every character so far because I noticed some colors were overall darker than the outline so I brightened up most of the portraits and did some minor updates as well.
With the red background are the old versions and with the greenish background are the new ones.
I still prefer some of the darker alterations but it’s more harmonized this way. I would like to have some feedback on some of these if you want to do so.

Some examples (edited because originally way too long)

I will most likely from now on exhibit random bosses who don’t impact the story very much aside from fighting our protagonists.
Also, I wanted to round up things and decided to raise the number of units to 70 (it’s too much but I couldn’t resist), 5 of them would be “secret” units (like Karla in FE7). Although I would like to show other characters, there are some I wish to keep the surprise or I might directly spoil their role in the story otherwise. And with how I orchestrated my first post, their side will be revealed, therefore I might rearrange it to sort characters by their country more than their allegiances.
I will continue to work on new characters but I will probably focus on making palettes now that I’m done with the playable characters. I’ll add them to the first post once they’re done.

I will mention as well that when making a “character”, not only I make their portrait, I also have their base stats, inventory, growths ready, as a result, I might display in future, their stats to give you some content to be excited about. However, since the game might need balance, they could change and are not set in stone. If I’m being honest, my project isn’t ready for at least ten years considering the ambition and speed of development. And even if this project will never be ready, I hope it would have brought fun to all of us.

On another note, I vaguely discussed this project with of friend and they got excited and wanted to play it before the end of the scholar year. Not being possible, they then wanted me to do a smaller project. Indeed, I might focus on this smaller project (still connected to that one, it could be considered as a prequel or a DLC) beforehand which would be 2 chapters long and also being a way to “test the waters” and be more familiar with FEHacking. I cannot guarantee the deadline at all, because it’s also stressing me out, and that’s one of the reasons why I was reluctant to mention my project to anyone alas here we are. Nevertheless, I’ll do what I can. I’ll update any news regarding this project in another post.

Thank you for reading me, I hope my paragraphs weren’t a slog to go through. I wish you all a very nice day.

Hello everyone, as always, I hope you’re doing fine.
Once more, I’m updating you on my work. Similarly to last time, I updated almost every character but this time it was about the shadow and colour gradient in the neck/chin separation. But unlike last time, I won’t show every updated portrait because it seems rather pointless and I don’t know if you want to see that.
Besides, you might have seen my contribution to the 2021 mug-blitz, I didn’t know when it was, I had nothing prepared and happened to check during the right period. I submitted mostly lazy recolours of generic bosses (O’Neill, Damian, Eubans and FE7 soldier) with different variations based on the different nations but it can be whatever you want, of course, they are free to use and free to edit (check the first post). I also submitted this original character who is a bad splice of Duessel and Raven, named Melrose, for once this splice is also free to use and free to edit, it was a friend submission (the one who I already spoke about), here they are:
Melrose Melrose V2
Speaking of which, unfortunately, I don’t believe I can do even the smaller project until the end of summer because I have a lot of personal issues and I want to focus on those and my grades first. I also happen to don’t know anything about Programmation. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have announced it when I knew I couldn’t keep my promise. It’s quite ironic because I used to make those portraits for fun, at my own pace and to escape those issues, the torment from real-life however it’s now another thing that’s stressing me out for no reason. Therefore, I think I will stick to make some portraits now and then. I hope you’re not mad about this decision.
I suppose you didn’t want to see me whine all day long so let us go to what you probably came here for, a new set of characters:
AlexandraAngelicaTheresaWinonaDiana
SamLandroffChikaraHanranGodefroy
I recommend checking my first post where I updated the portraits and lay-out to display characters by region instead of their affiliation to the player’s army or not.
Regarding the palettes, I tried to do a few but they looked unappealing. The places with parenthesis are place-holders. I don’t show everything now to at least provide you with a few characters each month. And I hope next time, I won’t blather as much as I did this time.
Thank you for reading, I wish you all to have a wonderful day. Until next time.

Hello, I once again hope you’re doing fine, happy new year 2022.
Well, it’s been a while since I last posted, I’m very sorry, I had some personal struggles and didn’t really want to post, please do not worry, just forget about “Until next month” of last time.

Alright, I made some progress on the Romhack, I made all palettes for the playable units, incorporated their skills, base stats, growths, etc… in the engine, as well as new classes and new weapons. I also made the prologue playable even though it’s imperfect and that I haven’t made the dialogues yet. Finally, what I believe is most interesting, new portraits! I also edited my previous posts, mainly the first one where you can find all of the portraits posted here, which are once again not all the portraits I made but all the ones I wish to show for now.

Some edits:

Jinia Old EJinia

Hello everyone, I dispense a new batch of characters.

ArchbishopGaelleKristovPete
StanislasTimTomZdradliwość

There is also a character with different colours in order to be more easily edited that will be F2U/F2E. I might address this as well, honestly, I wouldn’t mind people using all of my sprites, my issue is that I fear their depiction is drastically different from what I envisioned for them. However, if you want to use a sprite that isn’t listed under the F2U/F2E sub-title, feel free to contact me so I can provide you with their full template and discuss it.
I don’t think I’ll upload many more soon but I’ll try to update the first post with characters names, descriptions, classes etc… I wish you a very nice day.

I also did a couple of edits:

I changed the last one because I was dissatisfied with how they looked, however, I’ll keep the original and the redesign to be F2U/F2E

Then, another character that I must admit is very heavily inspired by what @BoneManSeth in the EDGE post, link here. Nevertheless, even though some might say it’s a copy, I remade it from scratch and since it isn’t really original, it’s F2E/F2U:
Wagner

Here is the character mentioned in the previous reply:

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I posted here but some of you might have seen that I helped with other projects such as this PME, orchestrated by @Falkyrie that I advise you to check if you’re interested:
FE7 Falkyrie’s PME.
For this PME but also for fun, I made some portraits that are totally F2U/F2E, I’ll put all of the new ones here and then add them to the first post, as always.

Here are featured the various portraits I made or modified since last time.

Pre-existing characters

Grégoire von Varley requested by @Petey
Ludwig von Aegir

The last two are quite late for Father’s day, however, none of them is an example of a good father. Despite how you feel regarding your own parents, please be kind to them. And if you’re having trouble with your parents, please reach out to someone you can trust to talk about this.

Most of the preexisting characters don’t have clothing that reflects their canon appearances in the game, however, I’m incredibly bad with those so let’s pretend that they were introduced in Elibe or Magvel, hence their armour being the way it is.

Once more, I hope you all had a wonderful day and happy pride month :rainbow_flag:! Please take care. :slight_smile:

EDIT: Updated Ludwig’s portrait, I found some inconsistencies while looking at it again.

I also made Emperor Ionius IX, there are two versions slightly altering his hair colour. His hair colour is white, however, you can similarly to Edelgard, spot some reflections or colour tendencies. Therefore, I made a yellowish white and a blueish white version. I hope you’ll appreciate both, and like the other last characters, he is F2U/F2E, nevertheless, a mention would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.
