I added in my 5th sheet today! ^^ Now that I have 5, I'm thinking of making larger sheets to take up less thread space.

My newest sprite:

A Scython egg. (If you havan't seen my other sprites, Scython is my creation! ^^)

My newest sheet:


Other sheets:


The Songbird and Maxie Set- from Mewtwo and the Lake of Rage, and requests by Skeetacular. You may NOT use any of the sprited that are red, except for "Old Maxie."

You must PM me if you want to edit any of them.


My recolor set. 2 kinds of recolors: Crystal (6) and Evil (4). You may use any of these you want, but please PM me, or at least say "Recolors by The Songbird." To edit any of them, you must PM me.


Edits, splices, and buggy eyes. I know the buggy-eyed ones are really simple, but I think they came out well. My favorite buggy-eyed sprite is the Swampert. Heh. This sheet has my angel Alakazam, my favorite of all my Pokemon sprites.

You may use them all, but they must all have the proper credit. I prefer it if you PM'ed me too, so I know where and how they're being used. If you want to edit any of them, you must PM me first, except with the buggy-eyed Pokemon.


Voltorb sheet. From left to right- VOltorb as Great Ball, Ultra Ball, and Master Ball.

Also, if you look at the following sprite, you will never think of Machamp the same way ever again. You have been warned! XD


A pink Machamp with a heart tattooed on his hand... AWWWWW... XD

Don't say I didn't warn you!!!

Thanks for looking and commenting! I appreciate the support!

Here's two more sprites I made:


Maxie, kneeling.


Maxie + 50 years = This. XD

Save your images as .PNGs. JPEGs ruin the quality of your sprites, and .BMPs take up way too much space. o.O

I edited most of my sprites, so they're more clear now. I also added in Garryn as a Golden Magikarp. And he still wants a kiss... XD

And here's some new ones.


Bulbasaur got torched... XD


I recolored my own character. Now I'm even more MAGMA-Fied! XD


I also added the recolor to my sprite with Maxie. Maxie was left unchanged.


My character plus overworld sprites.


A green recolor, requested by Skeetacular.

I like the May character you've made (and their recolors), it's the one I'm most interested in. The pokemon sprites look odd when they smile, but they're okay. I suggest you try to make more character sprites, people can get more attracted in viewing them.

The sprite of Maxie kneeling is fine, it's just his right leg doesn't look right.

Keep it up, make more.

June 27th, 2006, 5:12 PM
Hah. I love the Bulbasaur getting torched. The expression on his face is priceless. XD

These are simple, yet pretty well done splices/edits. You've got potential to be a really good spriter if you keep it up. I started out spriting similar splices like you're doing with small custom parts added in, and just worked my way up to doing completely scratch work. All I can say is keep practicing. XD

there good 9.45/10 overall, I really like the expression on bulbasaur's face.

Thanks for the comments everyone! ^^ I acually am kind of new at spriting. Right now I'm content with finishing off simple sprites and doing well, at least until I can make more complex ones with any success. XD

I know the right knee on Maxie is a bit awkward, and I think I messed up on the bottom of his coat, but I don't think it'll be too difficult to work on in the near future.

My character's sprite was actually a bit simpler than it might look. I used May as a base, and added in Drake's coat, Spenser's staff (the Palace Maven), and the pants of a Team Aqua Admin. And a good amount of recoloring.

I'll probably end up making more trainer sprites than Pokemon, cause I seem to be a bit better at it, at least right now.

Here's something else I randomly made. It's just a simple XD recolor, but I don't think it's too simple... XD


And they call that huge thing a berry? LOL!

You got some lovely sprites down there XD There are really cute and great! 10/10. Also, if it's possible to request for one, May I?

@xoxkris: Sure! ^^ I'm kinda new at spriting, but I'll give just about anything a try! I PM'ed you about it. ^^

To everyone: I put most of my sprites into 4 sheets, on my first post, in case you're wondering where some of them went. Heh. I did with all of them except the kneeling Maxie.

And here's my newest sheet:


Voltorb as Great Ball, Ultra Ball, and Master Ball.

And... I think I should put this in a spoiler... Not for those of you with weak stomachs... Hehehehehe....


Fear the Pink Machamp! With the heart tattooed on his arm!!!!! Fear him!!! XD

Amazing....what program do you use to do this? This is top quality work worthy of selling!

June 29th, 2006, 9:55 AM
Sweet colours, i like your shading style.

I wonder... do you use Photoshop or just Paint?

The Songbird
June 29th, 2006, 1:51 PM
I'm a faithful Paint user! XD

Here's another treat for everyone- a new sheet!

Splices and recolors. My faves here are the Ghostorb and Evil Ditto.

June 29th, 2006, 3:08 PM
You've got some nice sprites going. I'm rather fond of the dark-looking Dragonair... *laughs* The berry thing is very funny as well. Keep up the good work!

Another new sprite- Scython's egg! ^^


Here's a description for Scython I made:


Scythe Pokemon.
8'2", 387 lbs.
Type: Dragon/Rock

A long description:
Rarely seen, but they're more common than it's usually believed. They are bashful, but loyal to kind trainers. Despite their appearance as a savage killer, they are scavengers. They have a sense of smell that's so accute it can unfailingly tell whether a scrap of food is safe to eat. Once thought to be legendary because of their rare appearances. It is believed that they protect the seas, because they only kill if there are no edible scraps to live on.

Very nice, I like the Scython's Egg, its good. But MegaFuz is right, saving them as PNG's or JPEG's may ruin the quality. But your sprites are good.

Here's a new splice I did. I call it Houndyena. It has Articuno's colors. This was made for a sprite battle I'm in.

And a request by Icebramz:

Here are some new recolors- Shining version of my others:


July 7th, 2006, 1:47 PM
i like the alakazam wih wings, and the dragonair looks really cool with those colours!!! <3

July 7th, 2006, 10:12 PM
Wow! Great Sprites! ^^ The ones with the spaced out eyes are just plain funny! LOL Espeacially the Bulbasaur. XD

July 8th, 2006, 2:57 AM

Like the funny eye pokemon :P

July 8th, 2006, 5:39 PM
The recolored Mewtwo and Houndoom sprites are wonderfully done. *giggles* I'd love to see what you can do with the other Legendary Pokemon! You're doing a marvelous job! Keep it up!

July 9th, 2006, 4:46 AM
I like most of your sprites I think you have made them well. The fusions and eggs fit togeather nicely.

The funny-eyed Pokemon were actually the easiest of all of them. Out of them, the torched Bulbasaur is my fave! XD I also like how my Scython came out. I didn't think it would come out as well as it did! X]
