I hate to bump this, but this has been bouncing around in my head and I don't know how to classify it if not a nitpick.

I really do appreciate the work that goes into each character resprite, and I think they do a great job replicating the official Smash style, but the new sprites have a tendency to look really wooden and devoid of emotion. I get that its an unfortunate effect of doing the sprites 1:1 with the Smash equivalents, because a lot of the nuance in the 3d faces gets lost at such a low pixel density, but I do miss how the old sprites could pack so much personality in them.

Don't get me wrong, the new sprites are a definite improvement. I just miss how expressive sprites could be back in the earlier demos.

Anyways, that's my nitpick. Sorry for bump.

So what you're trying to say: somehow, recolored brawlified sprites somehow convey more emotion than more modern sprites that follow a more grounded artstyle?
I don't know about you, but there was a period where every character put on the same copied-and-pasted facial expression for literally every action they've done other than expressing pain. When a character gets a resprite, it's for a pretty good reason.

Yes, but those brawlified sprites understood for the most part that a different pixel density would require embellishment or stylization. A lot of the resprites suffer from their own issue of every redrawn face looking equally dead as a result of chasing a 3d aesthetic in a 2d sprite, while the earlier ones could convey so much more with less.

I don't see anything conveyed in your examples, both that old Ness and Yoshi look completely empty and without any personality at all.
