Well I joined recently spriting and wanted to show the stuff i did until now...it's kinda not so good though xDD
so here we go.

Pokemons:

Fakemon:
(Those which arent mine)
Spoiler:

Mssigno's

Toonie's(elaynii's)

HourglassHero's

(BUT those are mine)
Spoiler:


Overworld's:
Spoiler:



Btw i really need some critism on them because i know there is still space for improvement's there and some fixing but i am spriting only one week now so i think noone will complain that they are soo bad:D

Important:
Yes the official Pokemons can be used in your Hacks/Games with the condition that you add a "Credits to Anbuja/Anbuja's_BlooDY for some sprites" if that wont hurt you.
Just don't use the fakemons.

So i hope i get some CnC. see ya xDD

Don't say they suck because you're putting people like me who actually do suck down. These are actually very good.

All the reposes are awesome, but Charizard looks too small. Also, I definitely love the Scrafty repose! The eye bothers me a lot though because the pupil is incredibly hard to see.

Fireworks, yours does not suck, no ones sprites suck.

Anyways Anbuja, I'm quite surprised, these are pretty good. Like Logiedan said Charizard is to small, and guantula? is a bit weird the char line in general is a bit smallish or off. But I really like these, good job!

Quit overdoing your outlines so much.

You're trying to anti-alias them and all that jazz but the shapes are too small and the outlines too dark and strong to make them look anything more than thick, smeared dirty lines all over the place.

Generally just clean it up. Clean up the lines, make them curve smoothly and make the lines straight, and clean up the shading into smooth shapes without overdoing the amount of colours like the gradient on Joltik or repeating the jaggy shading.

I liked scrafty very much too that's why i did his line:P
Charizard is that small because i had to make hi fit the 64X64 pixels size because i'am going to use those actually in a hack i don't want those to go waste...if i had made them in 96x96 size they would have more detail.
Also im gonna try to fix Scrafty's eye if i can , actually i didn't notice that it's pupil is hard to see until you mentioned it:D

The same with joltik i took the pic from an TC.
And the charmander line and scraggy line are taken from :Battle and Get Pokémon Typing DS the pokemons sticker or so i never played that game just found it on the spriters resource.

Well actually that is my main problem...i have still very much problems with the shading , anti-alias and they're outline when i try to shade them i always think that i'am shading the wrong outline and use again they're black outline...
But i will try as much i hopefully get better in shading and such to fix them once a time when i make more..what im definately gonna do.
Thanks for pointing those things out:)
Btw thanks again to all i try fix everything pointed here on those sprites..wish me luck xDD
I think today i'm gonna post maybe some other's.


-EDIT-
I have those quit some time...and thought maybe i should post them but wasn't sure if i should post them or not....
but well here they are i post them anyways xDD:
Spoiler:

yeah OW's i do those too:P
The heros (red , gold , ruby , diamond and hilbert or black...might not be they're names)are public you can use those...and that guy and fat guy too ohhh and that yellow guy too...you only can't use the three first OW those two with gray hairs and that one with black hair and orange kinda clothes they belong to my hack...

You're sprites are very good, but there is a lot of black outline, and in this recent sprite there is actually a lack of depth. For me when I sprite I think about the coloring being between three and five colors, with each outline color corresponding to a specific previous color.


Color 1 - Highlight [Uses Shadow on outline]
Color 2 - Base [Uses Color 4 and 5, anti-aliased, on outline]
Color 3 - Shadow [Uses Color 5 on Outline]
Color 4 - Outline (Color)
Color 5 - Outline (Black)

Maybe you could give that a shot? It's just a suggestion, to get used to coloring the sprites a little. Obviously it's up to you I believe your sprites are actually REALLY good. :D

Thanks!

I would SPRITE those sprites bigger if they wouldnt be for a hack, and for a hack you need 64x64 pixel sprites, so they will look this tiny.

The sprite for Chandelure really reminds me of its regular sprite from the games; guessing you use parts of the already-existing sprites since some portions of it are exactly identical. Litwick looks adorable, though! :3 I really like the angled pose you gave it. The front view it had in the games had was a little boring and I prefer your version.

Minccino's line also looks good, though I really am bugged by Minccino's mouth and eyes (which look a little strangely shaped among other things), mainly the former. The grayish brown looks very out of place right next to the red on the mouth - really think you should change it to a color that sits next to the red better so it so it isn't as intrusive on the eyes.

Don't say you sprites suck, thay are actually alot better than most i've seen and made, so don't put yourself down like that

On the constrictive criticism side, the charmeleon's head looks a little flat, try to make the nose more prudent. I also like the poses of galvantula and scrafty, they look nice, but scrafty's looks a bit blurry, but it could just be my crappy screen, so don't mind it too much if it is.

All in all, its good pixel art, great job

I hope posting after almost 1 year isn't considered spam, or reviving threads.

Thanks to everyone who posted here, I've been reading all comments and critics and try to follow them as much as possible.

That said I wanted to post some sprites I've done:


I know Stelix and Zekrom might look "TO TINY" but that is just how I need them to be used in a hack.

I hope they aren't "THAT" bad.

Also I dont mind if anyone goes and use the official pokemons, just please don't use the fakemons, made by me or anyone else.

You guys might get alot of trouble from the original autors if you do.

Aww, man, your sprites are too good!

Actually, Zekrom isn't tiny, ,maybe a bit large bcuz he is big anyway.

I like the poses, and I can imagine fitting Zekrom over there would've been really hard. I think Shedninja's shading is put on nicely, and the Steelix looks clean. Your bunch of OWs are amazing! And Charizard's pose is awesome! Also, I think Axew's and all the other Pokémon's eyes have been put together really well. Don't stop making awesome sprites!
