Hello. It's been a while, hasn't it?
Despite what this upload implies, I'm sorry to say I'm not coming out of spriting retirement. I just made these one-offs as a way to keep my mind occupied. Figured I'd share them with the place I had my sprite roots most firmly planted. Though, from taking a look around, most of the people I've interacted a lot with have unfortunately left as well.
Shot in the dark, feel free to reach out to me on Tumblr if you're one of those people.

In regards to the sprites themselves, Lyn's one of my favorite Fire Emblem characters. And thanks to the Choose Your Legends poll that was run when Heroes first came out, I found I'm not in the minority with that opinion. (Though it was hardly surprising.) Luckily, Intelligent Systems seems to have picked up on this, and graced us with four alternate versions of Lyn: Bride, Brave, Love Abounds, and Legendary. I remade each of them in the style of the Game Boy Advance's FE7, where Lyn is originally from.
Bride and Love Abounds are based on Serra's Bishop sprite. I just widened it a bit to make it a dress rather than a robe. The present for Love Abounds is based on a gift box from Mother 3. I just shrunk it a bit.
Brave is based on a Nomad Trooper. Straightforward enough. The design of her bow, Mulagir, is silly, but I tried to keep its horn(?) intact.
Legendary draws from Lyn's own Blade Lord sprite. I used the prototype sprite of her wielding Durandal for the recoil from her aerial shot. There's a lot going on with her equipment with this one, (sword at her side, fur cloak, sash, quiver...) but I'm happy with how it turned out.
