Finished up my redo of this line of Fakemon. Thanks to other projects I haven't been showing my Captace region the attention I owe it. However lucky for it, my spriting ability is better now, so hopefully they'll look even better as I go through them.



A Psychic family line. Lizwiz, Lizgician, and Lizarlock. I'll soon get a video uploaded of me making the second stage soon actually. I'll edit it in here after work.

Hahahahaha, for some reason they remind me of the magic koopas from my Paper Mario game. They look very nice. I'm not the best spriter, but I can't really point out anything to criticize.

I've been asked a couple of times if I could do a tutorial on scratching sprites, sort of like I've done with splicing. I usually turned those people away, saying "I'm not a good enough spriter to teach scratching yet." Well I don't think I'm all that better yet, but I think I'm good enough that I could make a decent tutorial for it, even if I'm not a pro yet.

I will be doing a Fakemon as the example sprite for it, but hopefully I'll make the tutorial in a way that will apply to most sprite styles. I've written up a sort of rough outline for how I'd do it. It would be multiple videos, all split up into these categories. I know if I make it too long most won't want to follow, but I really want to hit on all points that I can.

Sorry this isn't me posting anything that could be consider true content. I haven't gotten any finished sprites to show since I've been jumping between projects and don't have anything that's ready to show quite yet for that.

Intro
- What is Spriting
- What it can be used for
- Scratching
- Overview of tutorial
- Explain what I'll be doing
- Explain I'll be making a Fakemon, but I'll do my best to explain other styles too as I go along

Concept/Planning
- Start off by explaining people should have a plan
- What will be the purpose of the sprite?
- Go over styles and games that they might choose from
- Show that starting with a hand drawn doodle can be a good way to start off
- Show off doodles and planning stages I have for the example

Basic Form/Line Art
- Introduce them to MS Paint
- Should explain programs like YY-CHR and others for game sprites alterations
- Start by showing two methods of basic form
- Blotchy method
- Doodly method
- Saving as .PNG
- Describe things like how to do curves
- Explain that looking at examples can help
- Fixing up and double checking stuff

Coloring and Shading
- Color choice
- Palettes
- Light sources
- Saving as .PNG
- Textures
- Form through shading

Finishing Touches and Posting
- Check around for errors and fixes that can be done
- Saving as .PNG
- Presentation choices
- Uploading
- Posting
- Dealing with critique and responses
- Closing


Since I am doing this to teach others, I do not mind at all if anyone makes comments on my plan so far for this. If you think there is something else I should include or explain, let me know, and I'll see if I can get it added.

I think the Colour and Shading section should have a section on hue shading if you're confident on it. I really love seeing varied shading. I look forward to this tutorial. :D

Don't let that hold you back; the first Pokemon sprite I ever made from scratch was for my tutorial. :D

Just one question Spherical Ice, what do you mean by "Hue Shading" ?

I might know what it is, but I don't recognize the term.


Edit: Never mind, found out.

I really dont have much to say about this, do I? It's another set of Fakemon I guess.

I'm taking a risk with the lack of a border on the wind there. No Pokemon in 3rd gen really had just wind going about them, so there wasn't really a standard to go by there. Everything seems to almost always have some form of border, but the attack gfx for wind doesn't use borders, and some things like Ghastly's gas don't use a border, so hopefully my lack of it doesn't break too far away from the usual style GameFreak uses.

Here are some over-worlds I'm working on for a friend's RPGmaker game. Although I suppose that isn't all too important.

The little fox boy is a character of my friend, Red Ryu. The big guy is of course my usual Raizou guy.

The sprites are based/styled after some of the generic sprites from RPG maker.

I know it's been a bit, but some time ago I mentioned how I was working on a scratching tutorial. Well I finally took the time to go back to that in finish up a sort of intro. Now this isn't the finished product. Before I move onto the real meat and bones I wanted to sort of post this video and see what you guys think, a rough draft.

There's some extra fluff and added images in this intro just because I don't have anything to show off otherwise. Less padding will be in the actual learning videos since I'll have the actual sprite making to show off.

So any comments or tips will be appreciated. Hopefully the other parts won't be as difficult to edit as this one so they can get done in a timely manner.

-------------------------------

Oh and I did some work with some Fakemon. Some of this isn't new, but a few tweaks here and there.

Put together part 2 of the scratching tutorial. Still not up to the true meat and bones yet, but it's getting there. All useful info I feel though.

Of course any comments are appreciated. I'd rather know something is wrong with my teaching method now rather than later.

New part for the Fakemon tutorial.

I promise, next video there will actually be some Fakemon creation. Yet all this side stuff is very important stuff I assure you.

More Scratch Tutorial:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxG5B00JqQQ

In this segment we start creating our sprite. We create our shape and lines and various details. Part 5, Coloring and Shading, will hopefully be up soon. I have voice and video recorded, need to edit it together though and fix stuff up.

Also been jumping around recording software, so this video will probably seem different than the others. Feel free to let me know what you think.

A lot of these are really neat, the colors flow well and the sprites are well thought out. The kangaskhan male's mouth sems a little strange and he doesn't have nostrils, loving the sprites though, they each are unique. :D
