[QUOTE] This has been bugging me for a while, last month I was talking with a friend about old neo geo games when suddenly he told me that Lee Pai Long sprite in AOF 1 was based on a 3d model. I inmediately told him that he was crazy, since I doubt that SNK would do that for just one character. But there is something in the movement and specially the colors on Lee Pai Long sprite that made him look different from the rest of the cast, which used more colorful pixels. And in AOF 2 his sprite looks more fitting compared to the rest of the cast. I still has my doubts about it, so it will be cool if someone could enlighten me on this I also doubt he was based on a 3d model. If he was, then SNK were real innovators back then! Art of Fighting was released in 92. That would mean SNK would have been doing 3d character animation before Virtua Fighter, Toy Story, Donkey Kong Country etc. If you come across an evidence of SNK using cg as a base for their characters all the way back in '91/'92 please let me know, because I think that would be quite historically significant! :D But there is something in the movement and specially the colors on Lee Pai Long sprite that made him look different from the rest of the cast, which used more colorful pixels. You have a good eye. His sprite does stand out and look like it's cg compared to the rest of the cast, but I think it's because of his design leading the developers to approach his sprite in a few different w [/URL][/b][/s][/i][color=660000]-- Message too long, Autoquote has been Snipped --[/color][/QUOTE] Thanks for the explanation, it really makes more sense now. I thought the same about SNK not using a 3d model, otherwise, they would have used it as a selling point for their game [QUOTE] I suspect there's a story behind Lee's sprite that needs to be told. Kind of like how Gen-An from SS1 originated from a scrolling beat 'em up concept. (can't remember if it was just the design or the actual sprite) He looks brawny in this sprite but the hand drawn character art depicts him as a lean martial artist. Also, because Lee isn't a playable character the decision to leave his sprite as it is must've been easier. [/QUOTE] Lee is playable in the versus mode of AOF 1
