Gallery of Galdr
I was looking for this art section, seriously. I don't mind critiques when needed, as long as they're constructive. (However, I can tell constructive from flaming most of the time)

Here's a few works I've done. This includes sprites, actual hand drawings, pixel art, and a few banners/signatures and avatar(s) I've done. I've been getting better at making signatures, though they're probably still at beginner stage. Enjoy. I may update when I get something new in. I'll try to keep them organized. Also, I'll more or less post characters that are mine in a fandom. Most people do, isn't that right?

Note: You can find most of these at my deviantART. So if you see it here, then there, then it's fine.

Pixel Art

Preeti (pronounced as "Preh-tee" not like "pretty") My Town Minish character

Iozefina (pronounced "Yo-se-fee-nah") My Fire Emblem wolf laguz character

MSPaint + Gimp Art

Aria, one of my many Pokemon trainer characters.

My Chao character, Verde. He looks like a Hero Run + a Pichu. That was intended. He's a partner of my Sonic character, Shun the Hedgehog.

Anyone know Golden Sun? Well, this is Isaac + Eevee combination dubbed "Isaacvee" on deviantART. Ain't he cute?

Hand Drawn + Gimp

Demitri, my Legend of Zelda character. Well, my first one. (Preeti's my second)

Toma, my DBZ character (one of them), in Super Saiyan form. Styled after the DB Heroes main male character. I'm aware Tora in Japanese is named Toma, but all Saiyans like recycling names in the DB world. Trunks was reused, so Wynaut?

Toma again, just not SSJ.

Inga, my first Pokemon Trainer character, as the Dark Magician Girl. Requested by one of my male friends, however. Lol.

Toma's twin sister, Pota. I wanted to make the BG transparent, but I was too lazy to. Oh, and SSJ1 form, by the way.

Pota again, non SSJ.

One of my friends online, her Autumn colored Simisage, Lefru. I adore this character. Styled after the Conquest art style.

Sprites (Includes Recolors and Trainer Sprites)

Lucario devamp
Mewtwo devamp & revamp
Zoroark devamps
Jolteon devamps & revamp
Pikachu revamps & devamps (collection)
Shiny Mew devamp
Shiny Celebi revamps
Shiny Celebi devamps
Geoffrey Rendall, another of my Pokemon Trainer characters. Mainly used Ethan's Pokealthon sprite and everything else was scratch. (The pants and hair)
Miu Inoune, another trainer character. Obviously used Mei's (B2W2 heroine) sprite.
Miu's vs sprite, using Mei's.
Malcolm and Inga couple sprite. (Malcolm's not mine, but a friend's. The same guy who requested the Dark Magician Inga picture previously posted)
Matthew, from Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, as a Mercenary unit from Fire Emblem.
Ryu, the Breath of Fire III version, also as a Merc unit.
And a collection of Pokemon Ranger outfits in sprites that I did. It's: Wintown (male), Ringtown (female/Solana), Oblivia (female), Almia (male) and Summerland (male).

Banners, Signatures & Avatar(s)

A story banner, personally. I never did get rid of that annoying shadow around his head... Oops.

A Link signature. My first one. As you notice, it sucks. XD

My personal Youtube banner/signature. Using it for somewhere else.

Since I love Coatlicue's summon from Dark Dawn (way better than TLA's version) I made this sig for myself. But, if anyone else likes it, they can use it. Just let me know ahead of time.

A popout Registeel sig I made for my friend (the same one that requested the Dark Magician Inga picture, yes)

Hope you guys all like these. And my current avatar and signature, I made them as well, but I'm too lazy to find the links for them.

I'd say you need some comment!

Well, I'd like to say, I like the variety of different kinds of artwork you make! Since I'm more familiar with GIMP and hand drawings, I took a look at those for a bit. =]

I'd have to say, I like the "Autumn colored Simisage" the most. I like the orange color and I think the line-art is much neater. The shading was okay, but the shading on the head, face, and legs made it unclear to me where the light source was coming from. I'd watch out for that! Why? It's less confusing where the lighting is coming from and it looks so much neater and better. Trust me! =] If you really need help on how to shade better, I'd just study normal objects around your room and see the different shadows an object has because of the lighting. Outside is good, too.

Shading help:
Sorry for not having a fantastic/awesome doodle, but you'll understand here where the source for the highlights are. From the angle, shading and highlighting, the Mudkip looks somewhat three-dimensional. You can tell pretty well where the light source is coming from. Once you get the basics of that, you can expand to other kinds of light sources in different angles.

Other than shading, I'd try to be a little neater on the line artwork. Erase some lines here and there, and try to make lines with one stroke if you slowly draw your outlines. If you draw a line quicker and in one stroke, it looks a lot neater than slowly building up that line.
I like to warm up by drawing more than 50 circles, very fast! All of them drawn with one stroke. It helps to draw much better, less bumpy lines and circles. ^..^

Uh, if I can think of any other advice, I'd maybe play around with colors more? To made set a mood or show what time of the day it is in your drawings. You have some nice work, and I hope I somewhat helped you out!

Thanks for the comment.

Yeah, the shading on the Simisage, the light source was supposed to come from the right. I was a bit tired when adding finishing touches on that one, so I go fix it. Sometimes I do have trouble shading. Thanks for the small tutorial, it helped clarify a couple small things I was unsure of. XD

I drew the Simisage by hand, and therefore, my eraser sucks. I don't use the pencil's eraser, I use a white eraser. I also try to clean up my hand drawings in GIMP as well.

Edit: Here's another batch of drawings:


Toma, my DBZ character again. Redrawn and so much better.


Letus, my friend that I drew the Simisage for, another Saiyan DBZ character. She's not mine, but is Toma's love interest.


I recall mentioning a Fire Emblem + Legend of Zelda role-play I wanted to start here, but it never pulled through. I started it on my home forum, though, so yeah. I made the banner for it, and so I'm putting it here.

Light bump. I have more new things.

Poke-Shipping (Lucario x Pikachu)

Reshiram Avatar & Signature

There's a reason he's not gijinka or whatever. It's a huge story behind it. And this is a revamp of an old attempt. Man those wings were annoying to do by hand.

I'll be updating occasionally. Enjoy/comment what have you. (:

Just light bumping again, as usual, as I have a lot of new things, but will only post a few.
