View Full Version : Worst fakedex


Equinoxe
April 10th, 2011, 10:14 AM
I'm trying to sprite a whole dexful of fakes, revamping some designs me and my older sister made sometime before gen 4 came out, I think. I'm not that good with making these exactly pokemon style, so I'm mostly concentrating on making the whole bunch of them harmonious in terms of shading and such.
I'm not that great a spriter and there are several things that give me trouble, such as shading (how do I make shadows ugh). :B

I've previously done spriting for fangames but not anymore because they tend to give me massive motivational issues. These aren't for any game, nor do I have a deadline, so they're much more fun to do.

I apologize for the watermarks; I'm kind of paranoid and overly protective of my work (especially on bigger forums such as this one).
As you might've guessed, you may not use these for any hacks or fangames, and I'd be really happy if you didn't steal the designs or ideas either (not that anyone would want, but... you know).

Question:

Why are you making all of the starters become Dragon types? T_T

Other than that, it looks fairly good.

lalo0101
April 10th, 2011, 10:32 AM
I really like most of these but, you should try to change the pals of the grass starter because it look like a fire Pokemon, change the fire starter just the first one completely because is does not look remotely close to the evolutions it has.
What i do like is The last stagiest of the starters they are very good and well made:D

Hope you keep up the great work:D

Equinoxe
April 10th, 2011, 10:38 AM
The dragon type is there to balance out the fire>grass>water triangle P:

The typings are mostly set in stone because they have all kinds of other reasonings behind them too (water starter is partially based off the chinese dragon, for example, which explains the pearl too). And there's also the fact that these will never be in a playable game, haha :D

Thanks C:

@ lalo0101: "change the pals"? Not sure if you mean the coloration of Aromild or something else, but I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna change that (sorry!). The flower should make it painfully obvious that it's a grass type, plus I don't think grass=green should always be the case.
Also, I'm not sure if I want to change Oisera either, it's a hawk anyway like its evolutions, just quadruped. Maybe it's just because I've gotten used to it, but I can see it evolving into its evolutions (it has sun-horns, last stage has horns and is yellow like the first).

(oh man I'm sounding so defensive right now, sorry about that)

Oryx
April 10th, 2011, 10:39 AM
I would say that the water starter needs more dynamic posing. Right now, it's just...standing there. I like the grass except for the first coloring, because it doesn't match at all with the rest. maybe make the flower on its back green to balance it more?

Equinoxe
April 10th, 2011, 10:44 AM
I know, I'm pretty bad with poses :U I'll see if I can do something about it later (though as my defense, most B/W sprites have pretty neutral poses, but then again they're animated, ugh).

For the grass starter, I can't change it because it's based on cloudberries and that's the colour of the flower in real life. Changing it would take away the idea behind it :C

Pals are the colors, i knew it was grass since its label but the colors you gave it kinda make it look kinda like a fire Pokemon, and i'm staring to see the fire starter now:D
But not at all

Edit
Never mind i just read what you wrote about Aromild but you should then try to follow through with the design and make nectrons(hope that the name) a little bit more of fall color

sorry for sounding kinda pushy:/

your shading and coloring is amazing. great palette selection.

i know you said you use your sister's concepts, but do you do any concept sketching? if not, i highly suggest it!

Equinoxe

@ lalo0101: You're not being too pushy, I see what you mean :P

@ beca: Thanks C:

@ Samson: These are all collaborations, plus there are going to be ones that are completely designed by me. It's hard to say which ones are mostly hers and which are mostly mine because we've thought these particular ones up together.
In addition, I have made designs all by myself for some fangames before.


Added a new line to the first post, and might as well put it here too:
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/e_wm.png
Obligatory first-route mammal thing, although not as weak as the usual ones.
I have no idea what I was doing with the shading here so it might be a bit weird.

Talking about the very first Grass one? I have to agree! xD
That is one of the coolest pokemon I've seen.

But I honestly really like your pokemon :P, Too bad they won't be used for anything. I think it would be cool to see a pokemon game full of these types of creatures :P!

Equinoxe
April 13th, 2011, 04:48 AM
Thank you :D
Of course, it would be amazing to have my own creations playable, but the amount of work that a proper game/hack needs is just way too much. I'm a realist (and kind of pessimistic sometimes) so I'm not going to kill my motivation by attempting such a large-scale project.


Also, I want to say this (not directed at anyone in this thread): I will not join your hack/fangame/project no matter how nice it is or how much you need me, so no point in PMing me. I've already received three PMs from people I don't know asking me to join their projects, so apparently my subtle hint in the first post wasn't enough to ward these people off :I


On another note, here's the early route normal/flying line!

I really like them, but they seem more like Grass Types, or at least the second one does/

Equinoxe

Ah, yeah, the tailfeathers kinda ended up looking leafy, but I'm not sure what to do with them since I would love to keep that green colour :U I'll probably look into it later.

Now, here's a three-stage grass line, mirroring Seedot and the like (trufax: my sister made the concepts of the first and last stage before gen three, and Ocuseed was originally called Seedet).

April 14th, 2011, 08:27 AM
I like your burds, but are you sure you want to go with that color scheme? Most people associate brown and green with grass-types. That aside, I love your designs! They all feel very different; Bountail, Flocular and Drusol seem Chinese, Japanese and north-African, respectively. Tangaroma and Woofresh are just... Well, you don't often see things like that, they're kind of alien.

They're all very close to B/W's style as well, with clean lines, even shading, minimal dithering (actually, I can't find any in your sprites), and almost no palette conservation. Some of the designs, like Ruffickle and Nectang, aren't very interesting to look at though. Bountail suffers from it a bit as well, with that largely featureless mane.

Equinoxe
April 14th, 2011, 08:32 AM
Thank you all C:

@ Humm96: I'm not sure I could make a helpful tutorial O: I just kind of do things my way and I'm genuinely bad at explaining things. I could, however, take simple progress shots of a sprite the next time I do a new one, maybe that would help at least a bit?

@ Chesu: You have some good points (ones I have thought about myself!). I'm pretty sure I'll consult my sister this weekend and try to find a more working colour scheme for Rashop/Exbinar.
Bountail's mane bothers me too, I'm just not sure how to fix it (I tried adding a white stripe but it looked awful). Ruffickle and Nectang, on the other hand, can stay boring because middle stages are often a bit iffy (plus I can't think of anything to spice them up either, haha).
But thanks for the insightful comment! I like receiving feedback like this.



Today was a good day so I finished two lines!

First is one of my favourites design- idea- and namewise (all credit, except for the sprites, goes to my genius older sister)!
I think the sprites, especially Judom's, came out pretty good this time O:
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/h_wm.png
(here's a little c/p from somewhere else, explaining the typing)
Now before you go WHY ISNT IT A GRASS TYPE, here's some dex info for you:
Karoto's body is mostly composed of chalk so it would collapse if it wasn't for the flower that it plants on its head. The roots of the flower keep its body together and allow it to move around without crumbling. The flower itself doesn't give the pokemon any special powers, it's merely a skeleton of sorts.
When it evolves, the roots have grown so so strong they allow the newly-evolved Judom to perform all kinds of kicks and punches. Judom is very flexible and bouncy because of the roots supporting it.


And the second one (why we have two eye-based part-psychic lines I do not know):
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/i_wm.png
this one was rather challenging to sprite :U

Humm96
April 14th, 2011, 12:44 PM
Yeah :) screenshots would be better, then i can see what to do :P

Chesu
April 14th, 2011, 01:46 PM
Regarding Karoto... Well, that explanation doesn't really work. I'll accept that it gains no special abilities from its plant parts, but that flower still has to be vulnerable, right? Anything that hurts a Grass-type Pokemon should affect it as well...

@ Chesu: shush, that's pretty nitpicky, don't you think? :D Sort of like saying Blaziken should have the weaknesses of flying types because it has bird parts.

Besides, arguing about typings doesn't really help me with my spriting, now does it :U I'd be more delighted to hear something like 'fix that outline' or sth I don't even know

Equinoxe

Double post because I have several new sprites (I'm pretty sure that's allowed).

We had a very productive brainstorming session last night with my sister so we redesigned all the legendaries (there are only three).

http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/y_wm.png
These are sort of like Kyogre/Groudon for this dex, 'Rayquaza' coming next.

Here's the promised step-by-step image of Cometrice's Active Forme:
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/stepbystep_wm.png

I hope you like these as much as I do, they came out better than I expected!

TheAngryPidove
April 16th, 2011, 06:24 AM
Those are really cool! Based on Comet and Meteors, I presume? That kinda sucks, I was planning on using that in a fangame I was making :P Whatever, I can still use them, different name, different design. Great minds think alike, you know?

Anyway, love the new sprites, especially the Bloodaria!

Equinoxe
April 16th, 2011, 10:42 AM
Yeah, no one's stopping you as long as you don't go blatantly stealing these designs and ideas :B I'm most likely not the first or last person to make meteorite/comet fakes.


Anyway, here's the promised third legendary!

I didn't want to name it 'Best Fakedex' because it would've been a lie?
Really, I just don't want people to expect anything supernaturally awesome so a humble title works best.

i mean any tutorials out there tht u can suggest me??
Uh, not really. A basic spriting tutorial? Idek, I've been spriting for four years and only read some really basic tutorials when I started. Practice is what helps more than a bunch of tutorials.

Equinoxe! The new fakemon look amazing, my only gripe is that the fluffy clouds on Pegasteed's tail is a bit too static and droopy (unless that's what you were going for). Also, change the word "worst" in the title to "best", as I'm sure a virus that changed words to their antonyms, must have attacked your computer.

Wow i must say i love all of your sprites, you are hugely talented. the concepts of the sprites are very unique, and i love the colous and patterns you use on your sprites aswell. You also use unique types for your fakemon too.. and the fact you called this spread 'worst fakedex' is ironic because you couldn't be more wrong, i like these sprites more than the new official ones they have gone downhill :D. I love the starters, The idea of dragon types is awesome, gotta love dragon types.

Wow i do know how to ramble (:

All I have to say is wow. I normally can't stand fakemon since most of the time they don't even look like pokemon, but you managed to give off the feel that some of these could possibly be real. I'm amazed at how you managed to pull that off. All i have left to say is that there's something "off" about the shading and outlines on active Cometrice and the Bountail family. I'm not sure what, since I'm no spriter, but I just didn't want this to be another generic compliment.

@ ~Kian~: I'll have to disagree with you a bit here: I think the newest generation pokemon are really great! :P It's probably just a matter of personal preference, but I really like the direction Gamefreak has taken with the designs.

@ Geras32: Yeah, there may be something weird going on with those since I wasn't really sure how to shade them (ice is pretty difficult to do properly, and Bountail's mane in particular gave em trouble).

Fluffy fur + cold weather = MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF STATIC ELECTRICITY :D
Their dex entries are also mostly about their static-y fur (but I never post them here because they're poorly written oops)
Plus, adding yellow or something looks pretty iffy with the blue (at least the yellows I tried).
By the way, I've also noticed that there are official pokémon whose type doesn't really show up in their looks (Sneasel an ice type? idk if they even explain it in the 'dex). :U

Older sprites I touched up a bit; these two were originally final forms of starters for a contest on another forum. I think they do pretty well as standalone 'mons (besides their pre-evolutions were kinda plain).

I also finished making shinies for all the finished sprites but there are so many I don't think I'll upload them. Probably when I've finished the whole dex? idk

Colour doesn't necessarily imply type, there's tons of cases backing this up, Flygon is green&red ffs.
The only exception are the starters, which shouldn't go too far from their traditional green/red/blue colours.
And also there's types that don't really have an obvious matching colour like Fight, or Dragon...
I find it annoying when people tell you to change the colours on a fakemon because of it's type x_x

As for Sneasel, note that it's type is Dark/Ice, not Ice/Dark. It's main type is Dark, so it's to be expected that this one would stand out in it's look first, if any.

So if Flaaffy (being pure electric, not just as it's extra type) is alright, the yeti is too.

Their backstory does explain things but I still haven't had the motivation to clean it up into a more post-able form. I'll be sure to post it here once I get it done, though P:

A rotating blob that shoots fire out the sides, after gaining speed upon evolution the result is a fiery whirlwind.
Genious!

I've been thinking about how I could integrate a whirlwind into a pokemon, but seems I wasn't thinking in enough dimensions, never occured to me the body would be in the center and off ground wtf xD

This is one of those designs where people would wonder how the hidden part looks.Need to come up with one of these too lol.

I love the new line. That's honestly the best fakemon I've ever seen. Perfect design, perfect sprite. Oh, and on the yeti, I understood the static concept, but didn't think the electricity was evident enough.

WOW im actualy loving your Dex! hope you complete this :) Also have you seen Project community dex? its a page on here where people look at ideas people have submitted and sprite them for a pokedex made by us :) its run by moderators so its completley allowed, you would be a great help to it :) your skills are fenomenal :D

I HATE TENCLIPSE'S SPRITE and probably will do a new one soon so I don't necessarily need any crit on it
probably also make my sister alter the design (asked her, she promised to try tomorrow) so that sprite is just a placeholder

note: this is a split evolution, i.e. Lunarf doesn't evolve into Tenclipse

Pupcent being pure Rock doesn't seem right. I don't mean design-wise, but illogical. It would mean that upon evolution it becomes less Rock type, since it changes from pure Rock to Psychic(or Dark) with Rock just as the additional type. Also this has not happened in the past official 650 (not saying it's impossible, just that it's usually not viable), so a pure Ground Trapinch evolves into Ground/Dragon Vibrava, not Dragon/Ground.

To make sense it should be either:
-Rock -> Rock/Psy - Rock/Dark
-Normal/Rock -> Psy/Rock - Dark/Rock
depending on whether Rock is the main type of this line or if it's just the extra.


Btw, why don't you add methods of evolution? As long as there's just stuff that evolves by lv up it's not that interesting alright, but when you get to stuff like split evolutions, one starts to wonder what the difference in evolving would be which decided what it evolves to.

@MiTjA: whoa whoa does it really matter? This isn't gonna be in any game or anything, yet people keep writing essays on why some of these should be typed differently or how the types are in the WRONG ORDER RAURGH :?
I have yet to receive much critique on the sprites themselves, mostly just about typings (and crit on the sprites is why I'm posting them here!). If I wanted people to argue about the typings and concepts, I would've posted some concept art in the Art Gallery instead. :U

To your other question: I could probably make a complete dex with abilities, evolution-howtos and poorly written dex entries after I've finished spriting all of these.


@Negative-Zero: moon = a big rock, Pupcent = moon + wolf


@bouttifull: nope, you're not imagining it :D
it's just a bird name combined with knockout, nothing wrong with that (it was named by a person on another forum, I liked it and so it stuck)


My sister's busy with her plane mechanic school so I got her permission to edit Tenclipse's design myself.
maybe better? idek at least I don't hate it that much (aside from the paws but I've never been good with them anyway)
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/u_wm-1.png

Fowilisk is maybe a bit to big, I mean it's head and neck are the same size before and after evolution... or not that's really just my opinion.
The black line in it's back should look better if it was slightly less curved, so it'd end about 2 pixels farther outside along it's right ear.
Otherwise the shading and sprite quality in general are great as always.

You post sprites with types below them, people will comment about it. Maybe if you only posted the sprites... no, people would start asking if they're this or that type, because types are simply part of pokemon.

I just thought that maybe you'd find it interesting to find out that type order is not random, but yeah, except for me and those guys at gamefreak no one actually cares, so sorry I won't say a thing about types again.

Yeah, no one's stopping you as long as you don't go blatantly stealing these designs and ideas :B I'm most likely not the first or last person to make meteorite/comet fakes.


Anyway, here's the promised third legendary!
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/z_wm.png
FORMES FORMES FORMES FORMES

(it's supposed to be very alien-looking and eccentric since it's extraterrestrial like the comet/meteor ones)
There's a long story behind these legendaries and how they're connected but I'm not typing it since it's loooong!


Sorry,but only the balanced form looks impressive,imbalanced form looks,well....crappy.

Equinoxe
May 3rd, 2011, 09:11 AM
@ MiTjA: I'll probably see if I can make Fowilisk a bit smaller (not today though, I got things to do).

@ moudinho: any reason why? The sprites or the designs? Does the asymmetry bother you?
Just saying they're crappy doesn't exactly help much :/

QUICKEDIT: also why exactly should they be 'impressive', as you put it? They're supposed to be imbalanced, grotesque shadows of the balanced version anyway.
(not trying to be that defensive here, it's just that people who go 'lol opinion but no reason for it' tick me off)

The only thing I would have to agree on is the positioning of your water starter... i especially think 'Woofresh' would look cooler taking on a difference stance.

Tailop and Bountail are my favourites!!! :) I also like the hybrid type of Ice / Electric...

Wyatt Fire
May 11th, 2011, 12:27 PM
I really like Equilance, lol. Did you just do the storylines or have you made up a fake region and fake storyline? That'd be kind of cool if you did a complete ~150 Pokédex and had stories and descriptions.

But, I don't think you really like your own designs... apparently? :P I've come to accept that anything can become a Pokémon now that we have ice cream cones and trash bags for friends.

@Wyatt Fire: some sort of a storyline actually exists! There's also a region map but it needs complete redoing because it's old and kind of horrible. Dex entries and such are in progress.

That VS. Sprite is the greatest thing ever.

Anyhow, the concept of Arminite is great and the sprite looks pretty good, too. I do think some parts of Arminite look a bit flat, though, due to the shading on the arms or lack thereof and the shading/lighting techniques used on the metal spikes. Other than that, everything other than Sheeld's legs (maybe have the lighting look a bit more natural?) looks great. Keep up the amazing work!

scarball looks great however his eyes dont seem to suit the rest of him, to me they appear small and hard to read

fantastic dex though

I thought Scarabal's eyes were pretty big considering how small it is but idk (the yellow tiny spots are just the pupils).
I had some problems with the back area, I really hate doing these kind of curvy things with pixels because they always end up looking odd. Might try to fix it later though (I have a list of sprites that will be edited/redone after most of the pokemons are sprited).

here's Scaraburr's counterpart (and woops Dytiscal seems to have some perspective abnormality going on too, try to ignore that O_o;)
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/vg_wm.png
Dytiscal changes into a bug/water type when Rain Dance is in effect, sort of mirroring Scaraburr's behavior.

I think I gotta do some explaining here. This line is based on the para, which is a neat little spirit-creature in Finnish folklore (I just recently found out about this thing and found it fascinating). A para steals things from others and brings them to its master, ain't that cute? It can appear as a ball of yarn or a roll of birch bark, or alternatively as a cat or a bird. The design of the fake (done by my sister, again) combines some of these elements.

Evilade

My favorites are Firbulen, and Exbinar. They're SO COOL. I think you should be the new spriter for Game Freak. EVEN BETTER THAN WHAT GAME FREAK COMES UP WITH.

Your sprites are very well executed! The only major problem are the eye expressions. Aside from the flower plant, the eyes are very small. The eyes are extremely important in order to instill some type of memorability and livliness to the sprite. With that being said, these sprites are well designed, shaded, and shaped. GREAT JOB!!!

@ -ty-: Ah yes, I can kinda see that. I'm pretty sure we have some bigger-eyed pokes already designed, just waiting to be sprited P:



anyway, there's still one legendary left!
It's not much connected to the trio, it has its own purpose.

I think it's kind of odd that by the first evolution, the horns/ears are dropped but later come back by the second evolution. The poses are pretty similar between the first and second evolution but not too much of a problem.

The shading is excellent and the palette is excellent. The linework is clean and the selective outlining is impressive. It's hard to see this as a dragon as it looks more like a bird/pheonix. XD

The old sprites are still in the posts that they first appeared in but I already edited the new sprites into the massive first post, so that might be why you can't see any differences. Most of the edits were pretty small (the legendaries were almost fully resprited though but I didn't change much, just made 'em the tiniest bit smaller).

It's based on... uh, a snake. Has a hint of Ouroboros in it though I guess but the steam stuff is just kinda thrown in there.

@ Logiedian: I always found it weird that Wartortle got cool feather-ears and dropped them when evolving into a Blastoise ;]


Touché, m'dear. Also I think you did a wonderful job with the shading on the ice. Great colours too, they work well. (:

These are very good.
Dursol is awesome but It looks more fire/psychic, mostly because I think egyptian designs are more psychic or ghost (Cofagrigus). But a dragon starter line is unique.

Also Cockout ftw

First of all, I agree with the feather-ear-wartortle thing stated above.

Next, actually on topic, I love that for the most part, these feel creative, and it's amazing. You actually based these on something remotely interesting (LOVE LOVE LOVE the horus starter...some of these should be real pokemon, like the elemental rock thingies), especially in comparison to the majority of the fakemon I've seen (it's like "fire snake, water monkey, grass turtle") which are nothing but normal animals with leaves or fire or something on them. Not all of them look exactly like pokemon, but who cares, they look great!

The names could've been worse on a few, but atleast it's not as bad as the Gen 1 names were (What were they thinking? Bulbasaur? Squirtle? Charizard? Blastoise? SEEL?)

...I personally don't think Sneyel looks good in comparison to the others. It kind of reminds of that stupid movie, "Monsters Inc." *shudders* Also, Eclash has a really wierd look on it's face.

Thanks for all the comments O:

Yeah, there may be some sprites that are a bit derpy, but I'll try to keep fixing them every once in a while P:
I come up with the names pretty quickly usually so it's no wonder some of them aren't exactly the most beautiful |D Good thing they're easier to 'fix' than sprites. P:



now, angst bats!

(c+p from a different forum:)
long story short: bat is sad because it has small crappy flappy arms instead of wings, next step: it gets bitter about it. Bawws itself to death and becomes an angry, fire-y ghost bat.
Has no cool mythology base or anything but dayum do you need one for an ANGRY FURNACE GHOST BAT?!

the idea for this line is a bit older, but the designs were bleh so I redesigned them in my drawbook today during a lesson P:
Kind of like how they came out, especially Murcimor.

Kinda weird xD But love how the furnace looks like his mouth. I don't know if that was your intention or not but looks really good.

Is it going to be in any Hack or MMORPG?

No, these aren't gonna be in any kind of game because there's just too much work, haha :D It's just a 'for fun' kinda project P:

Ablebe is actually one of my personal favourites >u<


I decided Fractone needed a little bit of redesigning because the sprites were a 'bit' awkward in terms of shading and colours plus it was sort of clumsy-looking :U
I feel more comfortable with this even though it's a lot more cutesy than the original, haha.

I for one like it. Especially because the difference in the Formes is a more subtle.

I didn't even notice how bad the originals were until you updated them; the current ones look amazing though

I also love the equality-legendary, and cockout (even with the wierd name)

They are cool. Just that Gitsell or something, I dislike very human-like pokemons. Put a proper face on it, or maybe just a nose and it becomes a girl...

@ warekurt: I can see where you're coming with that (because I dislike Jynx and the like) but I guess a few human-like pokemon won't hurt, right? There are people who like those too P:

oops
I made these like weeks ago but forgot to post 'em here:
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/vn_wm.png
First line from a bunch of critters based on the animals from the Burgess shale. This one is based on Wiwaxia (with some artistic licence; I gave it eyes and feet because it might've been boring without) which is basically a ball of scales and spikes.

There's actually a thought-out reason why these pokemon aren't the fossils in this dex, can you imagine that?
If this was a game, you would find these guys alive in a hidden, dive-accessible underwater cavern where time hasn't passed like in the outside world. Cool? y/n (n?)

The typing goes very well for these Pokemon. I love the coloring, shading and the constrction of these 2 fakemon. Its good that you have a little background of where you got these ideas from.

Here's a non-fakemon thing I did for tutorial-ish purposes (school stuff, bleh) since I haven't been in a fakemon mood lately:

I absolutely love your sprites! Most of them are better than real Pokemon.

Best of luck!

I wouldn't say 'better' than any real pokemon, since the people making them are professionals and they know what they're doing, but thanks anyway C:

So yeah SUPERMASSIVE BUMP because I can finally concentrate on doing my own stuff instead of graphics for school game projects.

here's a nastily-watermarked collage of things I've done this week. Revisions of older sprites/designs plus some entirely new ones! How horrible is that?
http://i244.photobucket.com/albums/gg23/1337freak/Fakes/collage2.png
I finally learned how to do VS sprites the right way. I realized I only needed some kind of official sprite as a base, because the anime faces are really difficult to conjure up from scratch.
So, they could be classified as 'sprite edits', but there's like 95% scratch and just a couple pixels that aren't edited. See if you can guess the people I used as face-bases. (hint: it's probably impossible)


so
