I'm brand new to the community and I joined because I'm looking for someone who'd be interested in helping me with a long term retexture project. I'm a recent grad from MICA (an art school in Baltimore) and I first got the idea during my senior thesis when I downloaded Toad's Tools to screw around and see if I could make something. I ran out of time to invest messing around in TT but I'm still really enticed by the idea.
Basically I'm trying to create a hand drawn video game.
What I'm looking to do is have every texture, pattern, and sprite isolated and individualized so that I can make a drawing for each, which, (ideally), would be placed back within the game to create a hand drawn mod.
I have no idea how to do this.
I'm hoping it wouldn't be too complicated but I lack the technical insight to say either way. I'm looking for someone who could rip all the images and patterns out of a rom for me so I could draw them all. After which they could be placed back in the game in the proper formats.
Is this a feasible idea? Will it be possible to convert scans or jpgs to the proper formats for the game/ROM?
Also, I'm open to drawing any game whatsoever. I just suggested Mario 64 cause of TT and sentimental value.
Here's a link to some sketches to give an idea of some of my work (the last one is a ten foot long painting):www.louisabbenemeagley.com
I'm really invested in this idea and want to see it come to fruition. Any help or advice would mean a lot, thanks.
