Please do, you have a knack for this kind of stuff. :3 If you could do updated/HD artwork of the veterans that'd be cool too.

well, usually what I do work with his promotional artwork itself, and HD mario and stuff doesnt look as good as smash mario does, just due to the art style.

this might be out of my ability right now, but ill look into doing some characters. I might start with Link and his look here.

Not to sound mean, but I fail to understand how this is considered hard to do at all?

I mean, you're just resizing existing pictures on a blue gradient, it's not much trouble.

This makes me want to make my own roster icons by drawing the characters and letting people use them. If I weren't so busy with college lately, I'd get on to it now, but unfortunately I'm overloaded with work and I barely get to sleep, if I sleep at all.

I'm not for the idea of mixing renders and artwork from games that do not fit together, such as Brawl Toon Link with Wind Waker Tetra and the Kotobukiya model kit of Mega Man.

If I were you, and if you know how to do it, since your roster icons are mostly based on the Brawl type of graphics, I'd only use renders from games for the newcomers, and if the style doesn't fit, then simply edit the image as they're pretty small icons and it shouldn't be too much of a big deal. Also, since the small icons have a reduced quality due to their size, you could easily find a screenshot of Lucina's model in-game and edit it if needed. For Lloyd, I'd use his design from Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

For Mega Man, I like the idea of using the figure but it doesn't fit too well. I'd use 3D renders or even the mod of Mega Man on Pit for SSBB if you know how to use them. I'd also use a screenshot of Mewtwo's new form from his release trailer instead of the artwork, then add details so he fits more with the other icons. Isaac's icon should be further zoomed out and Takamaru fits pretty well, although I'd make him a tad bit more detailed and/or darker.

Shulk should also be his 3D model, Tom Nook should be more zoomed in like Olimar, and Palutena should be darker. Dillon also should be his model.

Hopefully you'll accept my criticism, and again, I'm not trying to sound mean. I appreciate your work and would like to help you out but since I cannot right now I thought I could point the mistakes that a fellow artist can easily spot.

Keep up the good work and I really like your roster, pretty similar to what I want myself!

No, I fully agree with you!
what im doing isn't difficult for most, its just some people have trouble and I dont mind helping in this sort of thing.

its really minimal work, but im just doing this for the people with OCD like me, who really hate seeing some of the images with blank white back grounds or artwork instead of character models,

however, unfortunately, lots of characters like Lucina, Dillon, and Shulk are incredibly difficult in finding high enough resolution to actually look natural in it.

I also made a list of comparisons for other people.

and thank you for pointing out the tom nook problem! its starring me right in the face now ill have to fix it!

I actually did as well! even added more details, but they went by fairly unnoticeable when sized down :(
this is the image I used.

Can you put up a list and individually uploaded links(I'd use imgur so you can do them in bulk; also maybe make an album of them and link to that?) so we know what all you've done already?
Also I wanna request... let's see...
1. Samus/ZSS in the same style as your fancy Zelda/Sheik.
2. All the characters you haven't done that are on my SSB4 Realistic Roster http://i.imgur.com/I6PRMtW.png
3. All the characters you haven't done that are on my SSB4 Wishlist Roster http://i.imgur.com/6TukCob.png

That's not too much, is it?

I made this Wonderful Joe icon, but I don't know what the font to write his name is. Can you tell me the font or just write it in and upload it?

Is there any chance that you could make icons for one or some of the new Captains?
