Scanned at 600dpi, Cleaned and Retouched by GameStone.

The file sizes are quite large (2-4MB each), I'll scanned the rest at a later date.

Konami Windy
コナミ ウィンディ

I started with the 32x32 pixel version for the Arcade Games section on Gradius Home World, I then decided to do a more detailed version.

Doubling the size and re-edited it to add more detail, I've also started a 256x256 version but it's taking a very long time to add the needed detail and much more detail in needed due to the extra pixels.

32px, 64px v1, 64px v2, 64px v3, 64px v3 Top, 128px, 128px v2.

All images have been resized to make them the same size as the 128px version, otherwise they look like the two images below.
