Yeah, sorry, but if you're gonna use already existing Pokemon as base (and there's nothing wrong with that), you need to edit it beyond recognition. The bast way to do this is to sketch the fakemon the way they look and then edit the sprites to look more like something new instead of just a re-element, which is what the starters look like. The Raichu edit is the closest to looking original.

ZOMG! Your talented. Your sprites are good for beginners. Make sure to keep it that way.

EDITZ: But I agree with Chibi Pika, if it's not your sprite, it's not yours to say it's new.

Wow!

That's your first scratch, no? It's very good for a beginer. I think it's a bit too big, but maybe it's just me. The head and tail look rather twisted, though. Mainly the tail, but again it may just be me. I think there should be some color on the belly's outline, as all the black right there looks out of place. The outline shading on the tip of the tail looks dotty; in those areas use either more blue or more black so the outline looks more natural.

Keep it up. I'd love to see more of your work.

Wow, that is so much better. It is a little big for only the first stage in the evo line, but oh well. The outline on the tail is a little shaky--playing around with the color would fix that, and on the flipper, the shading seems off, like you can't tell where the light source is coming from, but on the whole, much better.

Thease arn't bad for a starter.
Some wise addvice.
1. maybe you should at leats get 5 - 10 posts before adding in your spirtes.
2.Save as either PNG or GIF any other will ruin the pixels and make it real small.
3. White backgrounds... CLICK ME!

Keep on trying.


Edit:Fixed them up for ya:

Yeah, King Boo may have fixed them up for you. But his is way better.

Yours is just slight bad modifications to original Pokemon sprties, and they're way out of scale.

Sorry dear. D;

You're very creative. =) Just try sketching out what you want to do first, and then transferring it to pixels. It's better than taking bases and just changing them. It also keeps people like Wudge off your back. xP

Keep up the drawing! :3

They are good sprites, but you should edit them more, as some others have said.

The one quoted above is very good for your first scratch, but its head is a little small.



For those two, the water dragon looks distorted.

The Fraligater line is good, but again, you should edit them more.

The Charizard is okay, except it would look better if you took the wings off of it's head, or edited it to not make it look spliced.

Uh, I've been wondering this for a while, but how many of you actually clicked the images in the first post? I'm mostly referring to Wudge and King Boo here - seeing as he used the attachment system to showcase his sprites, what you see are thumbnails. Clicking on them will show the proper uploaded image, which btw King Boo, are saved as PNG's.

Image compression doesn't change the dimensions of the image, so your conclusion about not saving as GIF or PNG is incorrect. Furthermore, transparent backgrounds aren't everything. You only need to post your link once.

These sprites look fairly good, especially for a first go.
And as Amachi said, transperant backgrounds aren't anything, they don't make it look better, it just basically adds the colour of the background of the page instead of white ;x.

I think you should try revamping some Gold/Silver sprites before starting to scratch, because it improves your shading and gives you some ideas of how to do certain parts on the sprite.

Good luck.

Somthing looks off with the recolored treeko. And about the scratches- AMAZING! They could of course use some work, but they are some of the best I've seen. You didn't use any other sprites did you? The grass line is better than the fire line. Good shading too.

yeah, you´re right, there´s something with the treecko...i guess it´s the left arm (it looks like it is growing out of the head cause the colors of the skin and the eyes are similar)
maybe i´ll make a new one with another treecko as base

EDIT:
well cause i don´t want to double-post i show my newest work in this edit
heres the new autumn-treecko

and the bellsprout line in autumn

i know that this is just a slight change, but the effect is quite impressive

here are some revamps from gold/silver-sprites






i also found some old red/blue sprites with pretty cool poses



i guess these are more recolors than revamps...

so tell me what you think of them

They are the same sprites though, Boo only fixed the size problem and tidied them up a bit, the difference isn't that big.

The scratch is ok, some pose and anatomy issues, but nothing major. Very good for a beginner.

The revamp turned out good i think, abit strange in atonamy on his back, but still you can fix that.
That mix is pretty simple :P good job on it though.
