Okay, here's the deal: I have four Famicom-era characters I'm looking for pictures for. What I need are pictures at least 350 pixels high with one-color backgrounds (preferably white, but not required.) Here are the characters and their respective games....
Donbe - Shin Onigashima Hikari - Shin Onigashima Goku - Yuyuki Mach Rider - Mach Rider Bubbles - Clu Clu Land Tamagon - Devil World
If anyone has an image of these characters that fits description, please give it to me, alternatively, If anyone knows where I can find one, tell me where. Using search engines is getting me nothing I want.
By the way, I want them in their forms from the Famicom. In the case of Donbe, I want the Disc 1 design, for Hikari, I want her Famicom design and NOT her Captain Rainbow look.
Basically, for those characters you have the boxart to work with and that's it. Your best option is to find the highest quality artwork you can and do a clean cutout around it in Photoshop or similar.
Best option is to go to Wikipedia and copy the Japanese names of the games into Google image search. You tend to get boxart, flyers and all sorts.
I'm sure I've got a big image of Donbe knocking around, but Hikari only shows up as a small background character in the art. I did find a flyer the other day for Yuuyuuki that had a piece of official artwork of Chao, which I had never seen before... so artwork for these characters is still out there.
Of course, you could also buy and scan the game covers/manuals yourself
Artwork of the characters can be found, but I fear it won't fulfill your requirements in terms of size and/or background. As Fryguy said, it is helpful to search for the spelling in Japanese characters with Google. Anyway, here's what I found:
nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.

Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.

nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.

nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.

nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)

nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.

nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.

nocturnal YL: Finally starting to see some good equipment made out of my post-game item optimisation in Atelier Sophie 2. I don't plan to write a review now as I don't feel a burning need to unlike BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light; I'll wait until my next game's done.
