G'day! Just an aspiring artist wanting some opinions. Maybe to become a Spriter and/or Trainer Card maker?

Anyways, just a few comments, tips, tricks, or whatnot would be appreciated. Thnx.

My Avatar, created from scratch.

A new Pokmon I created for a not-yet-in-progress Pokmon videogame.

That's all I have for now. Oh, wait, and I made my own Trainer Card too. Only first time, so nothing too special.

Heey..That mankey looks like a ninja...It's cool!
BTW your creation is just AWESOME!I'm really impressed..Does it have a name?

Yep. Vudu. It's a Dark type, and evolves into a Dark/Ghost type at level 42 called Gurat. I'll have a picture of it up later on.
As for the Mankey, it's just a l'il stupid thing of mine. My username ''Iron Mankey'' is a pun of my favourite movie ''Iron Monkey'' and the suit Mankey's wearing is based on the Iron Monkeys.

Thanks for the comments!

I don't think it's stupid at all :) I often get influenced by movies too.BTW I can't wait for Gurat!!

"I AM NINJA!!!" This phrase a friend of mine said is what can describe your avatar. Plus, your made-up pokemon is cool...but is it me or is it a little blurry? If it's not just me and it is indeed blurry,try saving it as a PNG. Helps heavily. If it's just me, then great wirk, and it's time to get my eyes checked.

''your made-up pokemon is cool...but is it me or is it a little blurry?''

I guess it's because I made it in MS Paint. You can't really get smoothness on the lines, so it shows up all pixelated and stuff. (It is saved as PNG.)

Oh really? I saved stuff as PNG and they never come up blurry...a real brain buster for me...

OMG you're a talented creator!!!!I may use sum of your fakes(!) in my future art..if you let me,of course ^^

June 26th, 2005, 4:41 AM
Sorry, but all my creations are restricted. If you want me to sprite anything of yours though, I'll be more than happy to do so, just show me what.

June 26th, 2005, 4:49 AM
^^ Okay,no problem....I've never worked with sprites and I don't think I will,but I'll let you know if I do and need you..^^

June 26th, 2005, 7:47 AM

Haha. It's extremely good. The fakes are amazing. They look like the real deal. O_O;

Here's Gurat, the evolution of Vudu.

As well as a sprite of another Pokmon I made up. It doesn't have a name yet, but it's a Grass/Ground type and is based upon tumbleweeds.
Once again, any questions, comments, etc. are appreciated.

June 29th, 2005, 1:42 AM
Man,you're still here?Go work with Nintendo,with the Pokemon team...XD
You're one of the best Pokmon creators I've ever seen..(I've seen many.They were good too,but you're just awesome!..)

June 29th, 2005, 10:04 AM
Holy s**t your sprites and pixel art pics rock. Just the ideas are amazing.

First of all, I would like to express my appreciation of your compliments, they're hard to come by. ^_^

Also, If any of you would like me to make something for you, I must tell you now: Patience is a virtue. I am a very busy guy, and am currently working at: My job, school when it starts, a videogame, a comic, another videogame, and any requests that I receive. And every now and then I like to do regular human things too (Sleep, Eat, Watch a movie.) So I'm telling you, if you ask something of me, you might not get them soon, but you WILL get them. Guaranteed or stab me 50 times before hanging me, burning me, drowning me, throwing me unceremoniously into a hole and then pissing on my grave.
