Thanks.

The Wes I actualy found on a Serebii.net forum, and I needed a Gym leader, so I used him.

The badges need some work still.

Uh, guys. Constructive comments please. State what you like or perhaps dislike about the sprites. Comments that show no detail of commenting what so ever are regarded as SPAM.

DragonQueenRachel -- DO NOT use sprites that do not belong to you what so ever. The whole point of making a thread here in Pixel Art is to showcase your OWN work. Take out the 'Wes' sprites or you shall be warned for sprite theft.

She has a point there.

I'm still thinking on the villains, that will probably be next.

Wow, everyone who has posted about the sprites so far have no sense of what's good and what's bad. Your sprites are just really bad recolors. You use the standard Paint colors and have no shading at all. They are completely horrible. Make them better by shading them and using different colors.

Indeed.

They're just sprites that you haven't made and are recolored poorly. Try working on recolors, even though its not something to say your experienced at.

Okay, I've had to go through this before, so I'll get right to the point.

I'm a terrible artist, I'll admit it, and I don't know how to get better coloring.

Double click on one of the color square things in Paint. It's pretty obvious what to do once you've done this.

Hehe, wait a minute, I've never stolen a sprite, forgot to give credit yes, stolen, no.

Regardless if you even gave credit or not. You're not supposed to be using other peoples' work to showcase.

Okay, to be honest, I was out of ideas by the 8th Gym Leader, and it was the best I could do, I'm really sorry, I admit that I was wrong, and I guess I'll have to think harder on that one.

Listen to yourself. You sound like a blubbering idiot.

"I didn't have any ideas, and I'm a terrible artist, so I just took someone else's sprite. But, I didn't steal it, I just took it without permission, and forgot to give credit."

Unbelievable. How would you like if you worked incredibly hard and long on a sprite, and then someone just took it and edited it without permission. I still can't believe that we even give out warnings for sprite theft. If it was my choice, you steal a sprite, you get banned. If you have no art ability, and are just going to steal people's sprites, do us all a favor and stay out of here. o.O

The shading is horrible. You basicly just took one color and put that one color over the many shades of the original hair color. If you would like me to help you pm me

Okay, I admit my mistakes, but you don't have to rub it in.

Desgardes, if it was, I am really sorry, I didn't mean to do this, this was all a mistake.

I knew I should've stuck to Fanfictions.

Please don't double post. The edit button exists for a reason. :)

Anyways, about the sprites themselves. They're not too terribly bad, in my opinion, but you do need to watch out for a few things in the future. Just be careful to not knock out any of the shading or outlines when recoloring. The default Paint colors have already been mentioned somewhat, but yeah...those are the colors to try to avoid, especially with pokemon-related sprites, as they're a bit too bright. And just a little note about the outline, since I see a part on the Hathor sprite that stands out (the one thing around the hip area): on pokemon sprites, the outline is never a pure black/dark color, but instead has lighter colors around where the highlights are on the sprite.

Even though these are just recolors, I'd say to keep on practicing anyways - everyone's gotta start somewhere with sprites.

Yeah, I kinda realized that.

I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to sprites, so I doubt that I'll ever be able to make my own.

Oh well, I guess I just have to go with what I can do.

These are okay...but you have to understand that spriting isn't as easy as you may think. You don't just pick a color you like and start filling in parts you want to recolor. You need to make the shading nice and make sure to keep your patience at all times. Spriting isn't a thing someone is born to do. You get better over time so don't doubt yourself and keep at what you're doing and you'll be a better spriter ^^

If its any consolidation, just doing this was hard enough.

honestly?
I made my avater in like, half an hour.
What i suggest, is to read some tutorials, and just keep practicing, learn to not angry when you are presented with critique, (not sayng you do,) and never give up =P

We all started as lazy, bad pixelartists, we all got better eventually =P

Thanks for the advice.

Well, at least I can keep my temper in check.
