[Request] Vwep for this Female Space Marine set

Postby GooberMan » Sat Jan 12, 2013 2:20 pm

Hello, people who can do things with Photoshop and not make it look like ass!

I'm currently using Alice Jameson's marines as modified by LeviathaN for female marines in my Prime Directive project. They've been working out quite well for me, and as far as female marines go they suit the look I'm going for.

One of the testers, however, has pointed out that it's a bit unfair that all marines look the same but aren't armed the same. Fixing this for male marines is quite simple thanks to Ghastly_dragon's marine sprite collection. When I get around to updating my DECORATE, male marines will look armed appropriately. However, as I'm going for an equal-opportunity marine force, only letting the female marines play with one weapon (probably a pistol) is downright discriminatory and goes against the equality our society is striving for (and most likely achieved by the time Doom is set).

So, my request is simple - can someone go through and make a set of sprites based on the linked sprite set that have visual representations of the stock Doom weapons? The work itself is not so simple (for a career programmer), otherwise I'd do it myself. I can see this being beneficial for everyone too, as I'm sure someone out there would want a vwep-supported female marine skin.

The only real deadline I have for my request is before I release Prime Directive. As I'm aiming for November at the latest, and to have it in a finished state in October so I can test it, I'd like to have the sprites by October at the latest.

not to blow my own trumpet or anything but, maybe you should consider my Crash sprites as you marine sprites? She is more anatomically correct.

Neither of them have vwep. If you did go and make vwep for Crash though, I'd use it instead.

Hey, sorry I haven't been authorized for private messaging yet, but I started working on a female protagonist, realized your crash sprites were everything I was going for, and wanted to know if you'd like to collaborate. I've already been playing around with your stuff in a PSD file if you wanted to toss that back and forth... or if you're done, I could pick up where you left off with fatalities and stuff (with the proper credit, of course).

I'll gladly test/compile in to resource WADs any vwep sprites you do.

With kids toys/dolls, that's used as a euphemism for "it's got men/lady parts". :shock:

Seriously though, that Crash sprite is very good and probably the best female marine sprite available.

It would be easier to do it with Virtue's Crash sprites, because the way she holds the gun is closer to normal Doomguy, so it's easier to copy/paste from existing skins.
