Well I can finally make this thread, if you want to comment on these please be honest and don't say anything positive just to make me feel better as I am constantly trying to improve. Finally, I did make all of these sprites, and to my knowledge they are all original. Please give credit if they are used.
Side-note: All base sprites used were taken from websites such as Elite2000 and The Cave Of Dragonflies Sprite Generator.

Well I decided to make a range of dark pokemon sprites so this is one of the first ones I did.

http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/7498/darkaerodactylbv2.png
And here's Aerodactyl.

http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/1749/darkgastlyyj4.png
Ghastly, although I wasn't sure how much darker I could make this dude seeing as it's already a ghost.

http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/8898/darkmoltresnasn9.png
Moltres.

These next ones aren't dark variations but just other edits I decided to do.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/8581/arcawolfxi4.png
Arcawolf, the Ice/Dark type.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/8281/elechupikakidpn6.png
Elechu/Pikakid.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/8443/blazbatum4.png
Blazbat - the wings belong to Crobat.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/1484/wingedrhydontu5.png
Rhydon finally learned to fly, IMO this is way better than the new evolution it has.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/7291/shiningregipq0.png
This is a new Regi but I have no idea what it is called. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me. IMO this is my worst one.

http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/6763/ferazillarq4.png
Ferazilla, not supposed to be Dark variation I just tried to copy Godzilla's colours.

http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/1922/falzartoiseop8.png
Falzartoise. This is a cross between Blastoise and Falzar from MMBN6.

Well I sure posted a lot, but I still have more to come.

Cool! Your Ghastly is really nice, its as though you can still see its orb-like body but not!?
It gives it a sense of a rell ghost! Great Job! ^_^ 10/10 (for the gastly)
You should try making a dark Aggron!

Yuur Aerodactyl, to me, is a little....well its just that the purple is to dark. Try keeping the skin all black, it may look better.

Your recolor of dark lugia is better! ^_^ 10/10

Your Falzartoise is rely cool looking, I like that cape-wing thingy he has aroung him. 10/10

I thought Godzilla was a greenish color!? But its a very cool recolor ^_^ 10/10

Your Moltres is awsome! 10/10

Your Regi is better than what you think, but those 6 circles no its chest-I think it would look better if they were different shades of purple. But still, is a good sprite! 9.5/10

You Rydon is very good, no scratchy marks where the wings are meeting with the body......
.... I give it a 10/10...........Oh, and just to say it, I like Rydons evo! ^_^

Again, your Blazbat is very good. The yellow contrasts the black very well. 10/10

I really don't know what to say about your pikachu/elikid. Y'know, baby pokemon mix well with other baby Pokemon, try...Pichu, it may turn out better. I give it a 6/10

I really like your Arcawolf ^_^, grey suits it well. 10/10

Overall, I'd say you did a very good job, very good. Keep up the good work dude! ^_^

Thanks for that, but I think that name sucks as much as Dosaidon.

For all of them overall they are done amazingly well, the coloring/shading I will give a perfect score because they are done very well, your creativity with the mixes and getting colors from other monsters is great. Oh Yea I love the gastly one alot

Thanks, but I hate that new Regi so much. Anyway, I'm going to start making trainer cards so if you want to help me practice give me a request and I'll have it done in about one to two days.

Here is what I need from you:

1) Give me a link to the trainer sprite, and the background image you want. Any image will do for the background.
2) Also, tell me your Pokemon (six maximum), and the badges/symbols you want.
3) I have all the badges and symbols, minus the silver frontier symbols, but including the Shinou badges.
4) Also, if you can tell me whether you want the D/P FR/LG or R/S sprite for the pokemon otherwise my default will be the Diamond and Pearl sprites.
5) Shinies are also allowed.

Like you said, the horn on your charizard is out of place, but I think you should replace that horn with Rapidash's horn!! I think it would look a lot better.

For some reason, I am absolutely in love with your Aerodactyl and Moltres. I like them all, but there's just something about those two. Perhaps it's the purple and black!

One minor thing--on Eleku/Pikakid, it looks like you simply chopped off Elekid's arms and stuck them on Pikachu, no editing at all! I don't know if it's because the colors are so similar or what, but it doesn't look natural.

I know what you mean, I really hate that one, I don't actually know why I posted it. Also it looks like no editing I think because of how hard it was to get the colours to match properly. I think I'll try Pikachu and Electabuzz next time.

Anyway, another update of sprites I'd uploaded but didn't have time to post yesterday.

http://img362.imageshack.us/img362/4523/nioksf1.pnghttp://img441.imageshack.us/img441/514/034nidokingnz9.png
I felt like contrasting the colours on Nidoking so I darkened all the purple parts and this is the result. Original after edit.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/6121/metbatdukus5.png
Another combo, but something about this one seems a bit unusual. Maybe its the pose that doesn't seem right.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/4025/scizorgreymd9.png
A crappy grey Scizor, I don't know what I tried to do here.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/3655/aerodactylfossilcc2.pnghttp://img410.imageshack.us/img410/2163/kabutopsfossilbe1.png
These fossils were ripped by me from Leaf Green.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/3384/donphanux2.pnghttp://img441.imageshack.us/img441/9666/232donphanir4.png
I tried the same thing with Donphan as I did for Nidoking, but this one looks better IMO. The original is again after the edited so you can compare them.

http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/5759/alakazamarmouredtq5.png
Alakazam with armour. I'll probably re-do this one to make the colours look and match better.

Ignore the height differences on the Donphan and Nidoking sprites, that's just because the originals were unedited.

Also, a note about the trainer cards. The backgrounds are all proper pictures. The space one I found on wikipedia when I was doing some research for school, and the sunrise one I took a screencap from the episode where Bulbasaur learns Solarbeam.

I tried to do a Crystal Onix, but the colours didn't work well on Photoshop so it came out looking like an Ice type.

Some Pokemon edited to look more simplified. I can't explain what I tried to do here but I think they look OK.

I remade that Ferazilla from the first post, but I think it's too light.

Some more dark variations. The dark Aggron was something someone recommended I do (can’t remember who) but that was pretty hard with Aggron’s original colour scheme. The Tyranitar breaks the standard colours of black and purple as well.

Well shadowedness, by rereading other posts of yours, you have some colorfinding problems. I have made a color sheet a long while back, and it is hosted in the ressources thread. You should try using that, it has some really nice colors.

Firstly, I was bored and tried to turn Charizard into Charmeleon.

Pidgeot and Palkia came out looking wrong but I figured I should post them anyway.

And finally, the Forte Cross MegaMan from Battle Network 5 recoloured and animated. Expect more of these unless I'm told I can't post them.

Please excuse the white background on the animations as the program I'm using only offers white/black as a background colour. The sprites also come out a lot faster than on my compuer. :\. Oh well.

You're nothing special. Theyre a bunch of cruddy recolours, you dont even have good color choices.

Youre lazy, and you dont try at all. Siamese sprites take less then ten seconds to do, and your photoshop effects are just some simple filters and brushes.

June 28th, 2007, 03:04 AM
Well simple effects work better than overly complex ones that you can't do properly. I know my work isn't incredible but I never said anywhere that it was. I also asked for honest comments but there is a difference that you need to learn between commenting and being insulting.

This one scares me in a way I can't explain O_o... If you could make the ring looking things sort of more "gold" looking and... Why is it always me that notices these things?

What things do you keep on noticing? Anyway I'll try and make Umbreon a bit less "scary" then.
I might know why you find it scary, it kinda reminds me of that evil rabbit from Watership Down. That was the only time I ever got scared by any type of rabbit (even though Umbreon probably isn't a rabbit).

Great rip. Why a rip though, might i ask? If i can recall:

Pixel Art
For your creative works that focus on every individual pixel. Share (but not steal) your works with others to suit many purposes.

http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/1261/electabuzzsk8.png
Another excellent recolour.

This is a great cut and paste job.

There you go.
