I can see you revamped most of them, they all look great. I'm loving the new shading style..but i'm not too fond of the water starter's pose, you could try a more dynamic pose. And the arms look like they're in an awkward position.

Fantastic job on the heads, especially the eyes. Like Logiedan said though, the pose and arms aren't as good on the water starter and, I think, the arms on the grass starter have a similar problem. They just hang there.

If I might also make a suggestion: the bluebird's eyes might stand out better if they were a different color from the body. I don't think there's enough contrast between them and the area around them.

hey you had the same idea as me! Fire/grass/water mixed with flying/rock/fighting! agree with what Logie and Scarf said so far. GREAT SHADING, but the water starter pose is lack luster. Also,the cardinal could look toward the opponent more, and less to the side.

I occasionally click on sprite threads, and when I do I always think there's something "off" about them that makes them not look like they could be real Pokemon. Whatever all the other sprites I've looked at lack, you definitely have. I could see these, especially the fire starter, inserted directly into a Pokemon game.

Thanks everybody for commenting on my work :D Anyways i have got an update, yay! I edited the sprites that you guys told me to. (see 1st post!)

Woah these look great!
you've definitely improved your sprites from the last thread, and they look fresh and have this feel of a new style. Sorry if I can't express myself properly. xD

I especially like the birds, the lineart is really impressive and the shades are on the right spots! :)

nice sprites dino. seriously how did you learn to sprite this well, its amazing! i really like the new style your going with, except the grass starter, i dunno, for some reason it doesn't strike me as a starter, its just to conspicous, all the others look great i especially like the fire starter and the new cardible. keep up the good work man.

I really love your fakemons. That worm one is a bit weird because it looks like he has wood growing out of his face and tail but other then that i just see real talent.

Logiedan

The red on the evolution of the water starter is way too..red. It just seems way off and unbalanced, so I think you should lighten it up a bit. Maybe you could make it close to the red on the water starter.

The caterpillar looks a bit flat as well and the eyes are unusual. You could try using real Pokémon as references for eyes. I love the updates though, keep spriting. c:

Oryx
April 15th, 2011, 04:28 PM
Did I mention that I love your sprites? Because I really do. I'm in love with your fire starter line :x

The only things I would change are what Logiedan suggested. I don't think the caterpillar itself looks flat, but the eyes should maybe bug out a bit? Or, for added effect, you could take the eyes off altogether and leave people wondering if the eyes belong on the yellow spot or the red ones on top.

Logiedan
April 15th, 2011, 04:39 PM
I just noticed that there was shading on the caterpillar. XD I couldn't really tell, so possibly have some more contrast? I also noticed that the outline of the caterpillar is mostly all black, and that's a bit heavy on it.

bleedpark

idk i liked the first version of the fire starter evolution ALOT more. love the water evo and the bug is quite...whats the word im looking for...keen, if u will :P

Those are actually poison barbs, it is based on the Dryas iulia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dryas_iulia) caterpillar.
The red on the evolution of the water starter is way too..red. It just seems way off and unbalanced, so I think you should lighten it up a bit.
Yeah, thought there was a little to much contrast.
I don't think the caterpillar itself looks flat, but the eyes should maybe bug out a bit?
True
I just noticed that there was shading on the caterpillar. XD I couldn't really tell, so possibly have some more contrast? I also noticed that the outline of the caterpillar is mostly all black, and that's a bit heavy on it.
I did that so it would look dark and menacing, but i don't think caterpillars can be dark and menacing :D

Anyways lets get to the point here, I have got an update. I edited some of the fakes and I put the evolutions of the birds in the dex. Personally i think they look bad*** but i want to know what you guys think.

I think it looks odd in how all three of the basic stage starters have different walking styles for lack of a better term, as in how the grass is a Biped, the Fire is a Quadroped, and the Water is Lapras-ped, but then in the first stage, both the water and the grass are bipeds, and quite frankly, look like a retype of the same pokemon. I suggest making the Second stage a floating serpent as well.

The cardinal based bird is awesome, but i think the feet are placed badly, and it looks almost on a tilt.

Keep spriting, cause I know your worlds better than I am!

The grass line looks stupendous and hands down the best of the three. The fire starter is my least favorite of the three but it's quite cute really. The water starter's head is a little too bulbous and its evo looks nothing like it. Drastic change is drastic. The first blue jay is kinda average but the second stage is so cool, same goes for the final stage. The cardinal is the opposite. Everything looks good until the last stage where it looks too pudgy and its legs are awkward looking. I'll wait to judge the caterpillar until after I see its evolutionary relatives.

Teach me the ways of spriting O wise one! Could you make like a tutorial or something? Otherwise, all your fakemon look great, especially the bird, but as Logiedan said, the water starters pose should be a bit more dynamic.

You have great pixel work, your lines are outstanding and your colors are vivid!

But, one thing: Your Bug / Poison looks a bit like Venipede

your scratching Fakemon Pokemon are done very well but you can use a little bit of more shading on some of the fakemon such as the second and third evolution for the grass/fighting starter around the belly area. my favorite one will have to be the Fire/Rock type because it reminds me of Camerupt and Entei

So, nothing big just a random pixelation (not a fake)

It's something called the "Black King Kong Shrimp" very rare (and expensive) variety of the "Caridina cantonensis" shrimp. I don't have any but i want one.

i especially like the final stage of the blue flying bird. I like the design and overall the lineart and shading, which somewhat resembles the BW style. :)

Good job!

well done. Your stuff still looks quite good. I enjoy seeing work from you. and I'm glad you changed the second evo on the water, the evolution seems to have more flow while not copying the grass evolution. do you have plans to make more fakemon?

Thanks, and yes, I do have plans to make more fakemon, however yet again I am in the process of editing them all.

im loving all those pokes except the grass/fight... and the dark flying bird (just that one not the previous evos of it). i liked the 3rd stage fire/rock poke too. and i like the new water evo. looks more realistic.

wonderful job on their eyes.

caterpillar and the fire evos are my favorite.

keep up the good work.


EDIT: I ONLY SAW THE FIRST PAGE...

the last post: grass starters look better... so does the ptera thing...

I really like these sprites! I especially love the design of the red birds. However, I think they could use a palette adjustment. To me, the red and black are a tad too dark(?) maybe. Also, the right wing looks rather flat in the second red bird.

deviantART user JESGRAD07 (http://jesgrad07.deviantart.com/) claims you've taken parts of other people's fakemon and used it as your own. I compared your recent fakemon with a lot of other people's fakemon sprites and I don't see a lot of similarity, in most of them except for the final of the ptera and grass starter.

In a recent blog entry of JESGRAD07 (http://jesgrad07.deviantart.com/), she says:

I happened to come upon the dex when browsing around. I noticed the arms of the grass starters final stage were exact match for my Water Starters Final. I left a simple comment "http://e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/blankstare.gif" and then later I went back and commented " I don't care if you take from the official pokemon sprites. But I do mind when you take from my fakemon sprites. The arms of the final stage of your grass starter are the arms from my water starter plattasaur. Don't freaking leech off of others because you feel you can't sprite yourself" or something to that effect. He replied "wooo hold on there. you should be grateful when someone uses your work. It means they respect you and shows how good a spriter you are. Calm down your acting like I robbed a bank" or something to that effect.


After comparing them, I did notice that the lineart was exactly the same. but the shading is different. Now for the comparison images.

http://i53.tinypic.com/2qx9axg.jpg

Notice how the claws and arms fit in exactly from JESGRAD07's piece and dino's piece.

http://i56.tinypic.com/why650.jpg

This is something I thought of, though I'm not sure of it myself. Just notice the similarity in blazeknight-94's piece (http://blazeknight-94.deviantart.com/gallery/23638672#/d2cpv3b) and dino's piece mostly around the mouth, eye and neck.

Just to clarify, the second one does NOT belong to dinosaurodon. It was used as a similarities and differences comparison.
