Breath of Fire II Nina Wyndia by misterpickles Breath of Fire II Nina Wyndia by misterpickles
Oh a treat for you folks today! I managed to find an old sprite of Nina that was nearly completed. There were quite a few mistakes and I managed to fix most of them. Color management was a bit tricky and forced me to be a bit creative. 16 colors total including the transparent background.

In any case, Breath of Fire 2 Nina is in my opinion the best Nina of the series and those black wings are to die for.

A nice reinterpretation of Bof 2 Nina!

This would be perfect if she was made for mugen.

I'm so late to the party but it's Nina II. Nina II is best Nina. Always. Also, the purple was used back then because solid black is bad for sprite work and when working with such small graphics it's better to add darkness using purple (not as much contrast, blends nicer, and looks freakin' rad to boot). Not that you need to hear that, seeing as your a good spriter, but for those wondering why her wings weren't black in-game.

Awesome! I wish we could have a game in those graphics.

That looks awesome!

Cool! This is a really impressive sprite. Plus BoF2 Nina is my favourites of the series.
Nick5200 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2011
what do ya think should i play BoF 1 and 2
i played 3 and 4...but idk should i play 1st and 2nd
cool sprite by the way O_O
misterpickles Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2011
If you plan on playing the BoF 1 and 2, I would play it in sequential order because number 2 is an actual sequel to the first one.
GutzGrilla Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011
Man, oh man... if Capcom ever thought of remaking the gem (no irony meant here) that is BoF II, it should have THAT style of yours applied to the entire cast. As well as fixing the glitches, maybe extending the game just a bit, developing all the arcs and further explaining some aspects of the story (I mean, Sten, Katt and Bow's background... they deserve more respect).

Finished that game once, but I look forward to get the best ending. And it would be nice to try the first game someday... but, for some reason, the sequels don't seem too appealing...

For people which like to point out the purple in Nina's black wings, here is some explanation on this.

Not that you really have to do this, but I wonder how would the other BoF II heroes look like in your art. Again: good job here :thumbsup:!

Great details.

So beautiful x_x

Curiously enough, a long time ago I was playing a game called 'Aion' and one of my characters were called Nina. The whole point of the game is that everyone has wings, so.... yeah.

Black wings are so graaah, purty TwT
Raftrider Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011
I agree! She had the most appealing design!
o-FiveAsOne-o Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011  Hobbyist
Holy crap! This is fantastic sprite work. Also, I agree on the fact that she's the best Nina of the series.

Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL version of Princess Nina! I love it, great job! :)
Aotenshi Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2011
black? wings? -gasp- O.o they are purple right??? I m going to recreate her costume so I Must know for sure what color they are xD anyways, lovely work ^^
misterpickles Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
Thank you for the kind comment.

Her wings are indicated as "black" according to Capcom, but most artist including Capcom's artists color her wings with a touch of purple to make it more visible. Additionally, the color scheme works well because the purple wings are analogous color of her outfit and is pleasing to the eye.

I hope to see your cosplay of Nina. From the looks of your gallery, I have no doubt you will do an amazing job!
Aotenshi Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
Thank you so much for your explanation about Nina's wings :) I will keep it in mind while constructing her wings...

You have such a lovely avatar from Milennia, I love her character and her looks ^^ Too bad constructing her hair would cost a lot of money due to the different hairpieces, maybe some day I will find the time and money to cosplay her as well ^^

And thanks for the watch Mister Pickles :)

Stumbled across this the gelatin filled pool of google image search and wondered how the hell this has managed to evade me or three years straight as I logged on just to say that this is freaking AMAZING before I smash the favorite button so many times my PC dies.

That's all.

Sweet. Though I prefer Nina of BoF IV .
Dratio Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2010
Crazy! This is why I still prefer 2D to 3D even today. Makes me wish for a remake with updated graphics.

You wouldn't believe my reaction. At first someone would of thought I was having a break down... which I guess I was, but whatever. The point is, this is awesome. I love you forever. Thank you for reminding me of one of my fave BoF2 characters. I love this franchise so much. ;_;
misterpickles Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010
Thank you very much. I could see your reaction.

It was probably first :-) then :-O followed by :O_o: and :blowkiss: finally landing on :boogie: with a bit of :eyepopping:

If time allows I might do one or two more from the series.
Reily96 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2010  Professional General Artist
Yes, it was very much like that. And that would be awesome. OH FOND MEMORIES OF YESTERYEAR.
Aurihalcon Featured By Owner May 5, 2010
Yup. The best Nina, and one of those "video-game-crushes" of mine-TMI!!!
Drazhan Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010
Awesome work, I'd really love to see the older Breath of Fires with upgraded graphics that would do them justice that is. Would die if they butchered treasured gaming memories.
MenrowSpirit Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2010  Hobbyist
Great Job.
I always liked the older Breath of Fire games where she was an adult and not a kid personally
Terpfen Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
WOW. An excellent representation of Nina. Makes me pine for a remake of Breath of Fire II. Wonderful job. :+fav:

Just curious, do you accept requests or commissions at all? I know of a character or two that could really stand out as a high-res sprite.
misterpickles Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
Thank you for favorite. I do not personally take requests or commissions, but I will take suggestions.

This way I am not obligated to do it, and if I choose to do it, I can do it when time permits me. For me personally, pixeling is a hobby and should not be a form of work. On a related side note, if the character is a bit obscure I might ask for reference pictures.
Terpfen Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
Agreeable reasoning. Alright, a suggestion it is.

Jeane from Suikoden II: [link] [link]

She has a couple of similarities with Nina, such as her dress being slitted on the left side, and a fair (but not excessive) amount of detail. She'd be a very good high-res sprite: higher than Nina, hopefully. Heck, anything is better than the original sprite sheet: [link]

Your skills simply make my drool more often than not. Absolutely fantastic. =D
