I was playing around on paint and I made this.

I think I'm gonna use it as my avatar. I used the Absol sprite from Pokemon Emerald, and drew this from that. Do you think it is good?

And I will make more, and post them in this thread, but what ones should I make next?

It's really rough and bad... the shape of the body is all wrong... and I would recommend you stick with your Flareon avatar for now... :\

Thanks for the encouragement... :\

I thought it was pretty good for just doing it on paint. You know instead of telling me it sucks, how about pointing out how I could make it better. If they were no rules, I'd tell you some really rude words. ;)

hey, i think its ok, you definatly know the rules of spritig, i like that!
neat lines and pretty good shading...
however you need to work on your anatomical skills some more.
also... paint doesnt affect the quality of a sprite as such...
i always use paint, its not different from using photoshop. in fact, i find it much easiuer to use paint...
anyway, id definatly like to see more! and some nice steady improvment! ^^

Thank you Aviator Maz, this was my first time ever making a sprite, so I don't really know what I'm doing. I just tried shading as best as I could and making it how I think it should be. What should I do next, and how should I improve on doing it?

Yeah, it is pretty good for paint. Paint is all I really have to do anything, since I don't have any fancy programs or nothing, but I'd say it's pretty good for a start. All that really needs improving is the fact that the body is a bit too long. Using the Free Form Select should fix it. Otherwise, I think it is awsome.

just anatomy, give iyt more shape, ie the top of absols body was flat.
(was that line tool abuse : ( i hope not!)
erm.. try somthin smal and simple.. like eevee maybe?

this is good! thought it does need some work on the anatomy.
I do think the shading is allright, i like that :)
I would just point out that not all things are bad if you do it in paint. I don't have any fancy programs ( @:o ) so I use MS Paint, and it works just fine.
check out http://pkmncommunity.com/showthread.php?t=79636. I don't think that they are that bad :$

ha, man i give you props for just trying it in paint. i use photoshop for my spriting and graphix (much much more accurate, if not a pain in the neck) but i could never do something like that, i suck at freehand.. (hence the term splicing ;) )
but yeah, its pretty good putting aside the roughness and maybe some needed improvement

To be honest, it's stupid to say "I only use paint" I've never done any of my pixel arts in anything bar paint,and they've all turned out decent.

You should work on the rear, round it off more, same applies for the upper torso, the feet are very sketchy, you should neaten those up as well, the head's fine, but the eyes need work. After all that you should use a better palette and re-shade the whole thing.

Oh, I'm pretty sure this thread is breaking the rules too :/

To however reported this thread: Sprites are the only ones counted towards the 4 example minimum, otherwise any other kind of pixel work is allowed its own thread.

I'll be posting more up, I'm doing an Eevee on paint and it's near done, if you want then lock this thread, and once I make 3 (is it 3 total or 4?) unlock it and then I guess we're good.

To be honest, it's stupid to say "I only use paint" I've never done any of my pixel arts in anything bar paint,and they've all turned out decent.

Guess what though, you've only used paint probably hundreds of times. This is my first time every doing a Pokemon drawing on paint. Sure I've done other things when I was little trying to draw happy faces not knowing there was a circle tool. So instead of saying "they've all turned out decent", and "it's stupid to say I only use paint" how about being kind and just telling me what I should work on. You implied that mine didn't turn out decent as well... Either lock this and re-open it when I have 2-3 more done, or just close it, because I don't really want to hear people telling me stuff like this. If people are like this all the time in the pixel center, then I don't want to make pixels anymore. You remind me of the preppy kids at school you pick on other kids because they don't play sports, or because they're smarter than them.

Yeah, I blatantly didn't tell you what to work on at all. To be honest, it's criticism, the rules state we're supposed to give it, but if all you're gonna do is whine about it then you're right, you should probably give up.

Erm...? It wasn't whining, it was proving a point that you should be taught how to act to other people. What if I was an 8 year old because 8 year olds are on this forum... Yes the rules do say to give criticism but they don't say that you have to be mean while giving criticism...

Blazed and .:Kaku:. : Please keep this thread to the discussion of the pixel art that Blazed has created.

If you would like to continue further on the matter, then take it to PM. Or heck, even talk about it in the Spriters Showcase/Discussion thread (http://pkmncommunity.com/showthread.php?t=65931).
