PostVSI: The Vortex Spriting Initiative

Ok guys, you've asked about it.
Imma tell you about it.


VSI, the Vortex Spriting Initiative, is mean to create the largest coherent library of LSW sheets in a single, uniform style ever made. How many times has someone wanted to make a comic, only to have to sheet several characters on their own, or request someone else to do it for them? Well, we're here to fix this issue.

VSI spriting is open to every member of the DBZ Vortex community. With that said, there is a small group of quality-control staff, the VSI Submission Team, who will go over each submitted sheet and check it to make sure that it matches the VSI style in terms of shading, proportions, and overall quality. The overall goal is to have all the sprites appear as if they'd come from one single DBZ game, rather than appear obviously from dozens of different creators.

The overall style is an updated, 3-tone shaded, LSW. More examples will be made available in the coming days as we hammer out the last details, yet I can provide you with a one-shot emphasizing the basic style:

This goes without saying, but please don't use this without giving credit to VSI. This whole project exists for Vortexians to use and expand upon, but don't take it for granted eh? Hee

Now for the logistical side of the coin: all sheets must be organized in basically the same manner, which will be given an example as we get a sheet or 2 completed for reference. Anyone on Vortex can begin a sheet, submit it to the VSI review team, and once it's been polished, it'll go into the Vault for public use. You cannot make your sheets exclusive and require your permission to be used. Essentially this is a public service from all of us to all of us, so the VSI sheets are free to use for any member of Vortex, provided that proper credit is given to VSI and the individual spriters of the sheet being used.
What should you do if you want to sprite say, Bojack, and someone else might already be working on Bojack? The simplest thing to do would be to talk with whomever that is and collaborate. Rather than submitting 2 Bojack sheets to the VSI review team and then having us basically reject one or combine them into one sheet, you both should work together to provide a better sheet than either could do alone, and then submit it to VSI.

I'll keep a list in this post of who is currently working on what characters, so that they can be easily referenced. If you post saying "I want to work on ___________!", then work on it by all means. However, if someone else wants to sprite the same character and completes a sheet before you, then you've missed the boat. Perhaps yours could be combined somehow, but this is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so I would STRONGLY advise teamwork and community spirit with this project.

Lastly, don't think of this as VRP was, a private team making sheets for you. Yes there is a small team of reviewers for VSI, but this is to ensure the overall style is maintained, not to take over the project. If you want to know who the spriters are for the Vortex Spriting Initiative, they are each and every one of you who logs into this place and wants to see it become as great as it once was.











List of current sheets in progresss
-Goku, Cell saga: BL, M_J, and Afro.
-Vegeta, Cell saga: BL, M_J, and Afro.

It's nice to see some accuracy in terms of height instead of kid Gohan being as tall as Nappa.
I take it we're not including GT as a part of VSI?
They are, however they're focusing more on Z related shit before Dragonball or GT.

Well I contributed a lot. But I only made a few like Trunks/Goten/Gotenks, and those are probably the worst looking ones in the bunch. The rest are a complete culmination of everyones talent, I assure you.

-Just noticed it- The hairs correct though, you should remove the nose and etc I think.
Also the goku ssj2 hair is a bit big and changes from the okay ssj one to a large version of it.
Have you seen a picture of Super Saiyan 2 Goku?
Spoiler:
 
I tried making it as accurate as possible.

Then make better left hands.
I'd love to start on GT characters asap, thank you for reminding me :)

Hmm.. Acutally I've looked over everything and the ssj2 goku looks pretty accurate, but I think what bugs me is how big his hair acutally is compared to ssj and ssj3 but it doesn't matter.

The sprites don't looks so bad however I don't think you guys should put noses however it still looks great.

10/10 I think

Maybe add Adult Gohan SSJ 2 if it wasn't too much to ask.

I don't believe I've made it clear that we do not, under any circumstances, want these sprites to be used until we're fully satisfied with what we've made. SO PLEASE, refrain from using plz&thx

Sir, yes sir. As you wish my lord.

We're almost done with Vegeta and Vegito, and once Vegito's done then Goku will be done. Pretty simple, so expect a biiiiig muthafuckin update in coming weeks.

Ohh there is, patience is a virtue my friend. We've finished the Vegeta sheet, and I'm currently working on Goku. We also have facesets

I think you guys are gonna love the final product, but we're still working on some kinks and getting the uniformity down to something the whole team can agree upon.

I kind of missed out on this entire topic the entirre time, but the only question I have,

Isn't this just VRP in a different jacket?

I Agree with Axxon, it does look a lot like your work, i just think you should change the palettes around a bit, you know, make them a bit brighter etc.

but otherwise it looks amazing, keep up the good work guys.

You guys give up if you keep changing then there's no point, its just gonna waste your time. You guys got YB and you still haven't released even one sheet, that's saying something.

It's been finalized now. We "have" YBz but sadly he has been lacking in participation. Don't worry, stuff will be released if I have anything to do with it.

We've already made a sheet and a half. All we really changed was the standing pose, so it's not that different.

YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! Release Vegeta! Very Happy
Didn't you say on the beggining that VSi would be for the whole Vortex to participate? But right now, no one can participate, as we don't have a sheet for base off.
