Added another Fakemon:
It's an anemone ( Water / Posion ), it can use its "tentacles" as fingers so it can learn elemental punches.




I've received no comments so far, but that hasn't let me down. I'll keep adding sprites, see you everybody.

Although some of them are shaped a bit strangely, these are really good!
I like the ideas put into these Fakemon. Keep up the good work!

The number 8 one looks like an Ambush Bug, sort of! And they concepts are good, but there are a few things you may want to rework.

The left leg of the first sprite appears to be unconnected to the body, moving it to be aligned with the right leg may work.

The body of the Larvug appears 2 dimensional because of the shading.

The tip of Mostugs nose blends a little bit too much with its hand, maybe give it a darker outline. And its body also needs different shading.

The Ambush bug thing needs darker outlines, but its a great sprite nonetheless.

All of your spiritng is excellent still, but I found those things to be issues if you wanted to improve the sprites.

They;re weird looking (in a good way) but I love the coloring and shading. Its also great how you named the Pokemon that you use to create those fakemon. My favorite one is number 09

These sprites are pretty nice. One of the best ones I've seen all week! I like the mosquito Pokemon, no one I know never came up with that!

Your Camoufly is pretty monochromatic. Give it a little more color. And the line down the back seems awkwardly straight. Wouldn't it be rounder?

#9 looked like a heart, then I saw it's tiny, tiny eyes. Could it have bigger, more noticeable eyes? I like it's tiny, tiny legs, though. Go figure.

Yeah, the "arm" is its nose. I'll take Eos Aduro's advice and give it a darker outline. The hands float because it's supposed to be a ghost like Haunter or something.

I agree it's monochromatic. I'm working on Camoufly's sprite right now; it's wings (back) became a headache.

First off, this isn't your thread to put images in, and secondly, you need to have at least 15 posts to be able to put images in your posts.

NEW! I made this fusion of Metang, Foretress and Venonat.


NEW! Mostug sprite was remade from scratch, this one's better and even proffesional looking! I'm proud of myself.

As you can see it's wings resemble those of Hemosquito and it's shading improved, its pose changed (obviously). Tell me what you think?

The hands are what made it look better, and the hands aren't even yours. Perhaps don't try to pull off calling Nintendo's Haunter's Hands your own. The sprite itself IMO still needs some work too, the end of the body is all jagged and I'm still finding it hard too see the mosquito portion of him, except for the stinger/nose. 3/5 but 2/5 cuz of the stolen hands.

Haunter had three fingers.

They look similar but that's because I copied shading and fingers in the right hand.

Oh. I'll give credit for the fingers then.

I made a new version of the sprite, Haunter's hand glow was removed (didn't liked it too much), the hands were re-made to be less Haunter-like, and the end of the body was made less jagged.

(by me) --> (by PBFHDude) --> (by me / Nintendo*) --> (by me)
*Right fingers from Haunter
