Pignite. Thanks to LassLaura for the name.


It's pretty fine for a sprite, but the proportions are a little off at some parts and it misses the characteristic head pokemon are usually identified by. I'd round out the shading and make the outline smoother if I were you. I don't understand what's covering it's eyes since the golden part looks more like a mask like portion of the skin.
I'd definitely enlarge the head if I were spriting this as a fakemon, and you might want to make the mask more like markings to give it a natural feel.

Razoboar. Thanks to Ninja Caterpie for the name.


Something is really off in this design as far as I could tell. It does have a large head and somewhat of a memorable face, but the shading really irks me at parts. Rounding out the shading is a must here because the neck really look unnatural with the shading there. I also think you might want to remove the back's shading since the light source wouldn't really illuminate it in that manner.

Proton (http://sushiekat.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d279dmk). Thanks to sushiekat of deviantart for permission to use the concept.


You done quite some work on this one, and I like the end result although you could improve it. I love the glowing sphere effect too.
First, color the outlines (especially at the place where the hair meets the head) and you'll notice a drastic change in the quality of the sprite. I've noticed that from the way you shade, you seem to think a lot about it that it doesn't flow naturally anymore. Relax a little and just shade it the way you think the light source would reflect on it.

This is my favorite from the bunch of sprites you have. I like everything about it, and I can't seem to spot any obvious mistakes. Good job on this one. ^^


I've got some other concepts ready, so you may see some more fakes.

I'm looking forward to that. ^^

You forgot to mention that I helped you with the shading/outline on pigmite and razoboar ;D
But anyways nice sprites the only one I would worry about is proton.
http://i46.tinypic.com/mkvjeu.png

Now lets look at the outline on this. First of all its pretty rough, which we don't want we want some smooth lineart so it looks more appealing and not so scratchy. I found a tutorial on lineart that should help you on it. link (http://www.derekyu.com/?page_id=221)
I would also take away the lines that hold the little atom balls. It seems to get in the way of the sprite and in my opinion it would look much better without it.

Lets get on with the shading, You have literally the shading and the lighting literally all over the place. On the upper portion of the body it should have more lighting less shading and on the lower portion more shading and little to no lighting. Remember the sun is always facing in the top left hand corner and if any body parts get in the way of it, there should be shading in the shadow of the body part.

Now I like the overall design I just feel its missing arms :/
Otherwise its fairly nice.

Anyways some things you might want to work on Haroun otherwise its a fairly decent sprite <:

I think you could work on the anatomy of the boar-evolution line (maybe use a base of another Pokemon?) as they are lacking, slightly.
The other Fakemon are really nice and I think you should make much more like them.

Tangrowth's cousin? It's kind of ugly-cute, if that makes sense. I wouldn't have thought it was 'furry' from just looking at it, but I see it now with the highlights and such. The left foot looks a little bigger than the right foot. One eye has a round highlight under it, another has a square-ish one. Are the eyes meant to look like they're looking in different directions? Am I going to keep spouting the first things to come to my mind?

Fixed left leg. Fixed the eye shadows highlights. Added some fur things to give a more... furry feel, including a sort of eyebrow covering the top eye. I actually didn't realise the similarities with Tangrowth and Tangela, so he's not related to them in any way. And yeah, the eyes are meant to be looking in slightly different directions. I'm trying out different palettes as we speak, but I don't think they're working tbh.

Oh, I like the palette you have. It just reminded me of those pokemon. Blue makes it look more like a monster since it's not a color you normally see in nature. I think the texture is a lot clearer now.

I know, but changing the palette might differentiate (SP?) mah Furrboi from Tangela/rowth. Here's one palette I quite like:

Haha, that looks great. The only thing that bugs me is the 'plate' where the mouth should be. It makes the head look misshapen. I can't think of exactly how to fix it, besides changing the 'plates' to form more of a snout shape.

Proton's hair reminds me of NiGHTS from NiGHTS into Dreams. Are you trying to make the hair look like a ponytail shape?

Are you talking about this plate? http://i31.tinypic.com/5f2hsl.png

As for Proton, I think the design is mean to be ponytails (or is it pigtails in that style? idek), so yeah. Haha, it does remind me of NiGHTS, actually. :D

Yes, that's the one. It just short of sticks out and... ugh I don't know.

And oh gosh, I just noticed the red star on Proton's chest! TOTALLY A NiGHTS PRE-EVOLUTION. Also you're right, pigtails.

If you want to make it look like pigtails, I'd... uh... well, make the dark part of the head outline come further up the head, to make the 'pigtail' parts look like they're behind the head instead of extending from it. Right now you have some shadows there, but they're not quite enough to make the shape pop.

Good roof. Non-square (roof) tiles are a plus for me.

Well, one simple idea that comes to me is rounded windows. That would only be a small change in the details, I know. Maybe looking at random pictures of houses, like this (http://image07.webshots.com/7/6/35/74/180463574spbnfQ_ph.jpg), might inspire you. You can find interesting things people have on their walls.

Meh, I just did a quick google search, most things are too extravagent for an ordinary house.

The pictures are fixed now. They were broken 'cause I did some rearranging on my Photobucket. Mind you, after I had rearranged, it was still showing, but idk. It's fixed now.

For making the circles you could try making a square (well, a diamond since it's iso) and then start shaving off the corners until you have something that looks like a circle. That's just the first idea that came to me. /don't know much about how to do iso style

Well, I used http://www.dragonflycave.com/dpsprites/377regirock.png Regirock as a reference. Not much shading there. I'll give add some shading here and there but I'm not sure if it'd work well. In any case, they're supposed to be relatively flat; they're rock faces.

Chesu
November 17th, 2010, 10:35 AM
The difference there is that Regirock has a lot more facets, in varying sizes. Its torso looks like it has depth because of the way the facets shape it, and the gradual shift in shades. Your sprite has larger plates, which changes shades very quickly due to the sprite's size.

Golava's red spike things on the back is a little odd. It's not very centered with Golava's body. I also think that its face could use a little more contrast.

Everything else is fine and decent and I very much like the Deoxys revamp. The Electrode can have some more contrast as well with a little darker shade and a brighter highlight.

Dumdoh, the Idiot Pokémon
Types: Normal
Pokédex Entry: Their clumsiness is usually the death of them, and, despite having wings, they have never been recorded to have flown.
It's a pure Normal type Dodo fake. Yes, I realise that Doduo is a dodo, but it's loosely based on one (well, two) and I think Dumdoh and Doduo are different enough as it is.

I really like this sprite, the design and color and over appearance makes it look quite clearly like a bit of a dunce.

But it does look a little unbalanced based on the direction of the feet. It looks like there isn't a lot keeping the back end of it from falling. I'm not quite familiar with what dodos look like, but that's a wing, right? I only ask because it seems like it's too far forward, not quite on the side where you'd see wings on most birds.

__________________[/css-div]So I was bored and had this spare palette and began making random shapes. As the subtitle suggests, all of this was the result of my boredom. No, it's not going to made into some sort of game, but the idea behind it is the the white blob, Monokid, is travelling the land to retreive his colour from the evil painters. The sun, Sunny, helps him out and stuff. I realise the mockup lacks hearts, health (wtf, I originally spelled this as gelath o.O), points, etc., but idrc. As I said, this is just a result of my boredom. Hover over the sprites for their names.

Oh, and the palette can be found here: click (http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff288/Sphericalice/palette.png).

I see a few small atomical errors. Beginning at the top we see it's two 'ears' while one is perfectly round (the one in front) the other is pretty much one straight line. It bothers me a bit since it makes it look less symmetric.

A bit lower we look at the back of the shellos. The first thing that came to my mind was the 'wing' in front. A black outline from the back seems to be cutting it off a bit. this makes it look a bit odd. Also the outline of the back is suddently getting a straight diagonal line downwards.

The belly is also a bit too straight.

Further the sprite looks fine to me. :p

These are some nice sprites. On monokid however, the highlights seem to be in wierd places. I would put them in a blob-like form, towards the top of the head. The highlight over the eyes just look wierd.

February 1st, 2011, 12:30 PM
I think that's simply the style, as they all have the highlighting in that location, and the facial features are independant of the lighting effects. I rather like it, it gives a cutesy appearance.
