READ THIS FIRST PLEASE, OR ELSE I'M PRETTY SURE WE'LL BOTH END UP PRETTY ANGRY.

Hey guys, I'm making a game called Pokémon Opal (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=183929)! It's a fakemon based game made by me and a bunch of other great designers! So, I'll be posting my fakes here in a sugimori style.. Though, I'm a starter, so PLEASE critique NICELY like the rules say... right? Don't say it looks really bad. Use KIND CRITIQUE to express that. It's very annoying when you don't... And please don't come here to say "it looks great!" Tell me why it looks great. That way I know what I'm doing well. Sorry for being so strict with you all.. Here's my newest ones:

Best one so far:

I can't go a day without seeing this one... lol, and also my second best:
http://www.pokecommunity.com/picture.php?albumid=3899&pictureid=35826

I used the 2-color shading technique.. And pink-metal shines. 2nd evo under progress.
But I am grounded. (http://kitsukitty.deviantart.com/journal/28339972/#comments)

ANYTHING BELOW HERE IS VERY OLD, DO NOT BOTHER CRITIQUING!

After I finished the second one, I actually did another project and learned how to use paths, so the lines on the third evo are MUCH smoother. HUGE pic, I'm sorry!

One I think was very good, but the coloring is loose, and the lines are blocky and thick! (Hadn't learned paths!!)

Here's a very old one. It's abnol, a pre-evo to absol. THE FOLLOWING PIECES ARE VERY OLD AND I WANT YOU TO NOTICE THAT. THEY SUCK ALOT MORE BECAUSE I DIDN'T LEARN PATHS YET!

VERY BIG. AGAIN. Very sorry.

Here's some more at my dA:

I was giving a light shot at sugimori, but I didn't know any of it yet, so I just experimented!

DO NOT USE. I MAY WORK FOR YOUR GAME, BUT I'M REALLY BUSY, DON'T EXPECT FAST WORK!!

Ok, you want some crits, here are some crits!!! MUHAHAHAHA!!!

... lol. I may sound a bit harsh, but that´s what crit is for. So don´t take it personal please^^

The first thing that comes in my mind is, that most of these don´t change much, when they evolve (Bowhydro for example). I don´t know if this is supposed to be, if yes, nevermind.^^
Alright, now to some more detailed things:

First Fake:
-Same problem as I mentioned before. Maybe give the evos some lines on the back, some spots, marks, anything, that makes it stand out a bit.
-The head of the last evo looks IMO a bit flat. Maybe it´s because of the ear, because it goes down...

Second one:
-The clouds don´t look bad, but as you said, the lines are thick.
-If I were you, I´d remove the cloud, that stands out of it´s chest. Not the whole thiing, just the long thing. For me it looks like an arm. An hitchhikers arm, if you know what I mean XD

Third Fake (Abnol):
-IMO the head looks very flat... Like it got pressed...^^
-The face has no shading at all, except for one little light spot. Maybe some shadow under his... helmet? XD
(-Maybe give the eyes some colour?)

Fourth Fake (Bowsail-Bowhydro):
-The tail of Bowsail looks... strange... I´d check the lines again.
-Bowhydros Tail is strange too. It´s too thin at some parts.
-Bowhydros Tail again^^ Don´t make the line between the tail and the fin light blue.
The dark blue would be much better.

Fifth Fake (Tulup-Mayribo):
-Nothing to say, except that Tulup looks a bit fat, if you look between the front legs.

Sixth Fake (Kindleo-Emane):
-The outlines of both could be a bit darker.
-I´d remove the white in theyr ears. That just don´t look right. Maybe light orange? Or dark Orange...


All in all, these are good drawn fakes, and I´m waiting for Opal.^^
But most of them look a bit... blocky... (Not the right word, but I can´t think of a better one). Try to make the outlines rounder.
Hope that´s crit as you want it, it´s the first time I actually did this much ;)

Good luck,
Bombah!

You actually seemed to have failed with reading the info!

"I was giving a light shot at sugimori, but I didn't know any of it yet, so I just experimented!



So, er, yes. Those are very old. You should really only be rating the top two because I had learned sugimori a bit by then. But thank you anyway!

And the blockyness, like I said, was because I didn't learn paths. (much like photoshop's pen tool, I think...) Eventually I learned to use them, though. So the lines on the upcoming ones will be much smoother!

K, didn´t see that...^^
Anyway, better have too much crit, then nothing at all, right?
And, theres one thing I have to ask... What´s Sugimori??^^

Besides, thanks for leaving a comment, but this was an older thread, I have a new one, just a few threads under yours XD

You left me crits for something you didn't know about? -.-"
Sugimori is the Pokémon style art, by Ken Sugimori. People use the method all the time to make fakemon. Like this: http://plateman.deviantart.com/art/Fadeon-Sugimori-Art-97615791

I did not make that one, of course.
And an official one made by the one and only Ken Sugimori:

But hey thats just my Opinion.

Well, most people use something called kind critique to express that.
Most of them are old and like I said, I'm a beginner. Way to give encouragement...

You don't get better all the sudden, you practice, and that's what I'm doing. I came for critique, not "that's horrible" get it?... >_<"

Here's the legendary I was talking about.

I know that the tail's messed up. It's a little blocky near the end of the tail, before it splits. I dunno, the paths weren't happy! o_0"
Good? No? Tell me!

I feel as if I should warn you before you read: I am an incredibly harsh critique. I don't give a damn about you wanting me to go easy on you; you won't learn anything if I do. So don't give me the crap you've been giving everyone else. However, feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong. That said, feel free to read on. But don't expect any compliments until the very end.



http://www.deviantart.com/download/132135069/Electric_Tiger_Fakemons_by_Kitsukitty.png
The first evolution:
I'm not entirely sure what the W-like shapes are on the cheek, whether they're supposed to be fur or stripes. If they're supposed to be fur, you should put shading under them. If they're supposed to be stripes, make the lines darker/bigger, whichever comes first. The line under the chest, right next to the left front leg doesn't connect. There should also be some shading inside the ear.

The second evolution:
In this position, you should barely be able to see its left eye. There's nothing more that I see other than that.

The third evolution:
Now I really can't tell whether those are stripes or fur. I think they're supposed to be stripes, though. Correct me if I'm wrong, which I probably am anyway. And I gotta wonder: You went into detail on the paws in the second evolution, yet you didn't in this one. Why? It would make more sense not to give the final evolution that same chibi-like feel.

http://www.deviantart.com/download/126306487/Fakemon___Cloud_by_Kitsukitty.png

This looks fine as far as I'm concerned. The shading is nice and the style is nice as well.




http://www.deviantart.com/download/125720921/Abnol_by_Kitsukitty.png
The chest fur on both of them is flat and doesn't look as smooth as it does on Absol. And at the bottom, a little part of it isn't colored in.

http://www.deviantart.com/download/123724377/Water_Starter_Evos_by_Kitsukitty.png
It's hard to differentiate between the two evolutions as they both still look. . Chibi, I suppose I should say. They still look cartoonish. The second stage should look way different than the first stage. The only difference I can see if the tail.

For the second stage evolution, the top spine looks stuck to its head.

http://www.deviantart.com/download/115170121/Grass_Starter_Evolutions_by_Kitsukitty.png
The first evolution:
I have no idea what those things coming off its body are. Really. . What are they supposed to be? If I had to guess, I'd say ears, but I'm probably wrong about that. Anyway, the vines for the tail (or whatever that is coming out of its backside) are poorly drawn. They spike and are not the same size on both sides of the vines. Where they're supposed to be a certain width, they are smaller than they should be. I hope I explained that well enough. Just take a look at the third spike from the end and you should see what I mean.

The second evolution:
The left arm looks like it's coming out of its ribs. Good news, however, this one looks much better. I can actually tell what everything is.

http://www.deviantart.com/download/115404160/Fire_Starter_Evolutions_by_Kitsukitty.png
The first evolution:
Where's its chin at? I can't find it. That's the only complaint I have.

The second evolution:
Considering the bushiness of the eyebrow, you should be able to see a bit of it from the left side. And the left back paw is much too skinny.

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/hiatudex/images/1/12/Vitaofficialart.png (http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/hiatudex/images/1/12/Vitaofficialart.png)
The shading is something I found to be just a bit inaccurate with this one: the top of the head should not be shaded.

You are an okay artist. I like the smoothness of the lines and the way you color. What do you use?


Thank you. No need to curse, though(but, whatever.. XD)

Well I'm not going to go through and correct everything you said wrong. I appreciate your critique, you were straight forward and honest.
Yeah, you're right, it shouldn't be shaded there! D':

My lines, hmm? Well I learned this thing called paths on GIMP. It's like Photoshop's Pen Tool, I think. It's pretty hard at first, but after 1 day of using it, I got used to it! It makes the lines very smooth. I now color with the selection tool by checking "sample merged" turning off oll the layers but the lineart, and clicking on the inside, where you want to color. I keep pulling the threshold up as much as possible before the selection moves around the line, not in it. Then I use the Paintbrush tool on my color layer and fill. That's all.. then I shade and etc..

And yes, the spine is connected to it's head.
The grass evos aren't based off any animal, so I can see it's hard to guess what those things are. They're actually leafy streamers, but I'm sure the gamers will get that, because it's called the Streamer Pokémon.

Thank you, any more questions?

I have some points of critique too (if that's what you call it, I'm not English sorry), but most of it already has been called out by Shinjis. The only critique left is that your lines are a bit shabby. They're with a lot of bobbly things, ah you know what I mean xD. But I know how hard it is to make straight lines on the computer, especially if you're doing it with your mouse. Are you? 'Cause then it's pretty good. You do have interesting poses though, the evo's look different from eachother. The first one could use some more differences though. 3rd evo looks more like it could be the second.

Oh and I really like the last one! That one can have some compliments. (I'm talking about the legendary btw) Though the top of his left ear doesn't need shadow. Only the (for us) right side of the ear needs shadow. Unless it's flying in front of a fire or something but I don't think that's the case :p

Good luck with your sprites/sugimori! For a beginner you're pretty good.

Like I said, I learned paths in the middle of that project, so the lines were wiggly. The shadow, I already know, Shinji said. But thank you.

For trying to imitate Sugimori's style, you have QUITE a bit of a trek yet. Your outlines are way too pronounced and thick and the coloring needs work too. Just comparing your work side by side with one of Sugimori's art will instantly bring up a huge clash in style. I'd say study it more and keep at practicing.

Personally I think too many people try to imitate his style and to me this gets old very fast. I like seeing style in people's work and if everyone is trying to imitate a single style, where's the fun in that? That's why I work in my current cell-shaded style; It's distinct and personal.

August 20th, 2009, 06:37 PM
Well it's called a fakemon, so I'm trying my hand on it to see how I am on different styles. A bit of "trek?"

o_0

This isn't the only style I draw in. I just do it for the fakemon.

"Just comparing your work side by side with one of Sugimori's art will instantly bring up a huge clash in style."

Yup.. That's why I'm practicing... of course i know that.


I want to be a master of digital art, so I'm trying to imitate and experiment. Like said earlier, I have my own style but it's really not that great.

I don't know anything about the creation of fakemon, so I'm hardly the one you want a critique from. But hm. With the blue/cloudy one it is not quite clear what the cloud really is. There is no arm visible on the other side, so I assume there isn't one and it makes it look a bit strange, maybe you should clear that up a bit.

With bosail, the eye looks like it doesn't belong to the picture. I assume that's because you used the circle tool, am I right? It makes it look too neat compared to the rest of the lines.

Mayribbon's (my) right paw looks a bit strange, like it's not entirely attached to the body. I think this would be helped if you continued the line of the arm to make contact with the tuft of hair.

I'm not a fan of the last ones, the proportions seem all over the place. Overall I think you might want to experiment with the thickness of the lines a but. The lines are a bit too thick to get away with having no variation in thickness. You could also take the eraser tool and make the lines pointy where the stop.

Perfectly fine, experimenting can lead to innovative breakthroughs at times. ON the other hand, it also might not work in your favor, so be mindful of that. And by trek, I meant journey.


This isn't the only style I draw in. I just do it for the fakemon.

Well since the fakemon are the only posted pics, I have no way of knowing. :(


I want to be a master of digital art, so I'm trying to imitate and experiment. Like said earlier, I have my own style but it's really not that great.


Like I previously stated, it is artistic nature to experiment and try out new things. Experimenting was how I happened upon my current style, and I'm hopeful it will help you happen upon yours. Fearing your own style isn't too great should only be incentive to build upon it and improve it.

The thing about artists is that they continue learning until the day they die...

hmmm well. i don't really see and problems with your style or how you;re drawing these. tbh whats REALLY getting me is the designs.

individually, they're pretty nice. together... they need work.
TBH, you seem to have got it right with Mayribbons evo line and your absol pre-evo. what i'm getting at is that the evo lines besides these, as an entirely are pretty well. okay i'll be blunt.
they're bland. they don't change much at all besides getting bigger and their eye design changing. Now, i KNOW evo lines look SIMILAR, but look at Pichu Pikachu and Raichu, for a good example. YES they're similar you can see they instantly come from the same family, but look how much they change BESIDES getting bigger! yeah, you've gotta see what i mean, right? you need to strip the preevos as somethign dull, tiny,little, basic. the basic physiology of what its GOING to be. lttle or few marktings denoting relatedness to the final form. they are basic!
But then after this, add brand NEW parts to it that weren't there before, yes make it bigger, it's going to be stronger, right? but theres alot mroe you can do with somethign then making it bigger and more seriosus looking. I mean, yu kidna got it on the electic ones tail... don;t be afraid to do something unpredictable in an evo line. it will make it more interesting. i mena, look at trapinch and flygon? how different are they?

i hope you see what i mean and take soemhting away from this. what you have now is certainly showing promise, ALOT of promise. yu just need to not be afraid of soomething different and new. good luck!

Wow i really like them! I'm sorry but im not good with Critque so i don't know what to say, but youve inspired me!
I have one question though, is the game like...a game like the rest (Example, diamond, pearl, etc) If so could i help? Cause i really like spriting and stuff, oh, and if you dont mind is it ok if i make a couple ideas for fakemon? Then you could draw them, we can get equal credit. Im just asking, but anyways, your pretty good in my opinion!

I must say that I've gotten so much better. Thanks to ShinjisLover, or whoever it was who said that my lines needed to get thinner. I followed that, and used my own sort of sugimori style instead of tutorials. And I got this!! ^^

no no no, people don't seem to get this. Those are gems. I'm not really sure what they do, but I'm planning on learning a bit of Item scripting so that in the game the Pokémon will have the gem and it'll induce an illusion on the foe, reducing accuracy or something. It's based off a kitsune and tanuki, so it's sortof like a racoon and has closed-ish eyes like a kitsune.

Wow these are great! Only problem is that the evolved forms just look like grown up versions... Still great maybe add more features to the evols?

*new art*

Thank you. Yea, I love the tail too! XD I've gotten that multiple times just from deviantart. Some person asked me to make a picture of their fakemon(which was actually annoying), and just today someone wanted to use it in a youtube video. And of course, that won't happen.

I know. Not everyone knows the japanese creatures (tanuki/kitsune) so I'm fine. I'm not sure if they're really closed, though. I guess they're just really tight.

Really good piece right here, I love the attention you're giving the paws...it really brings 'em to life, and a lot more close to that Sugimori style. :D

Nice, the newest evo chain you made look quite nice. Could be spiced up with a little more variation between the steps up the evolutionary chain, make it more interesting...

Other than that, the second evos arm is a bit messy, it looks awkward from the angle you've drawn it at, it'd not clear what it's supposed to be doing as such. Unless its trying to breakdance or something.

Speaking of, i like your red panda design, but you were right, it's a little too much like a stylized red panda right now, it might be better to start thinking of fakemon in terms of what they DO, whats their niche, so to speak, and how can they best fill that niche, instead of just choosing what they should look like first. Give them a background in the pokemon world, do you see what i mean by that?

Besides that, these are really good, your style is looking really clean, neat, tidy and pleasing, you're nearly there, you just need that little bit more edge and these will be just amazing.

Yush! Every artist has those times when the poses just mess up, and then you're too lazy to clean it up! XD
I'm more of a designer, so when I think up fakes they tend to just appear without a story. But I'm usually able to think up their purpose without much.

I don't know why, but your recent images just don't scream Sugimori at all to me.
I love Sugimori style and most people who attempt to imitate it really are awful at it.

You have the shading style down, but your lines look a little ... weird and unique to your own style. That is alright, but ... if that is the case -- why claim you are making 'Fake Sugimori' styled pokemon?

Honestly, I think it'd be better to practice actual animal anatomy before experimenting in creating your own creatures. Legs seem uneven, and just because it is a cartoony style does not give an excuse to dismiss error. I wouldn't listen to buttering up people give you occasionally. If you want to improve, take all the critique; good and bad -- and learn from it.

Er. Ahem. I mean, hello, dear friend. c: Your coloring looks like some authentic Sugimori, but there's something about the lines that seems off... sorry, I can't pinpoint it. Perhaps it's just your own style seeping in too much, but like Kizamaji they don't look too official unless you look pretty hard. D: Your artwork is great and works as a sort of semi-Sugimori merged with your own ways of drawing things, but I think the Pokémon themselves are just a little too soft and rounded for it to look proper.

The lines aren't wierd, they're unique - yes, my style has blended in. This is only because I haven't learned how to make lineart like that of real sugi's..
I can claim that I'm doing sugimoris.. that's what I'm trying to accomplish.. what else would the point be?
Who said I didn't ever draw normal animals? I have practiced animal anatomy ever since my interest in animals appeared when I was about 5.. I never said I was perfect, though. Actually, i've said that myself many times(here, and on other sites..) I do consider critique all the time, even though I say things like "i don't think so" or "I think that the ____ is fine".. it sticks in my mind because I turned it down. Of course, doing that is always a little prideful(y'know, thinking that you know everything..)
I AM improving, and I DO want to improve, and so I will take all critique; I'll try my best.
Thank you.

Er.. you're Kizamaji from deviantart? Awkward. You said you were no good at anatomy on one of your journals. You're not bad, just unique. :)

Too soft? Too rounded? I dunno what you mean. :/ Sorry.
Anyway, whatever it is I'm sure that it has to do with my drawing style. Hey, you can't blame me, though.. I'm just an imitator. I can't be perfect since I'm imitating an artist. Don't get me wrong - I guess I can, but.. I'm not perfect. It'll take a while.



BUT, NONETHELESS, I have considered my lineart to be off. Like said before, I don't think I'm perfect, don't think that I think I know all about sugimori. I have used tutorials in which lineart is not described. *shrug* I'll need to experiment, but I've gone back to school from break, and my deviantart commissions are now taking up a lot of my time.
Though I have discovered a new easy way of making similar lineart.. I'll need to try it out sometime. I have actually made a tutorial for it already..

http://kitsukitty.deviantart.com/art/Instant-Lineart-Tutorial-148758619

I see the lineart is more like a natural ink pen, but I'm still experimenting.. just be patient, time will teach me.

I think I'll agree with a lot of people here, this Fakemon is too precious to ignore. The eyes are cute even if they aren't open and that's what makes it exciting to not know; almost like if the legendary Uxie were to open it's eyes. xD It's not as colorful as a lot of Pokemon/Fakemon out there, and that's why I think it's unique.

I personally believe that you're getting the hang of Sugimori style. This is a great tutorial (http://yayster.deviantart.com/art/Pokemon-Art-Style-Tutorial-30134365) made by the ex-moderator of the Art Gallery. She's really amazing. The tutorial covers everything about executing the official Pokemon art style perfectly. Even better, its for digital artists who use a mouse. :D

My own tip to follow the Sugimori style is to maybe try actual Pokemon as practice? Then maybe you can get a good idea and a better start on making more Fakemon. Pretty much just take what you've learned from real Pokemon and incorporating it into your own. Just a suggestion, of course.

You're stuff is neat. You're always presenting fresh ideas and have a lot of creativity. I'll be following your work. ^^

Fave it on deviantart if you like it!: http://kitsukitty.deviantart.com/art/No-66-Vulcier-154116464

PLEASE. DO NOT COPY REDISTRIBUTE, RECOLOR, SAVE THE IMAGE, SCREENSHOT IT, OR EVEN PRINT IT WITHOUT MY PERMISSION.

I'm an admin in an Art Theft reporting group..

You're off to a really amazing start. The designs themselves are unique, though they still manage to retain that classic Pokemon feel. The shading is nice and subtle as well.

My only concern is that your lines can sometimes look a bit... stiff? I don't know how to describe it, but it seems to come from excessive use of the pen tool. It's almost unavoidable if you don't have a tablet to work with, but if you do, you might want to consider going freehand.

Excessive use of the pen tool? I don't have a pen tool, I use GIMP, not Photoshop. Anyway it's the Path tool which is pretty much the same thing.
Really, I can't do anything about that now until I buy myself some really thin pens or a pen tablet, which I'm saving up for. D:
For now I will just have to experiment.
