This thread is one year old today, and I'd just like everyone to know... I really am making more tutorials! Honest! The next two tutorials in the works are Trainer Backsprites and Establishing Shots; if there's a tutorial that you would like to see which isn't listed in purple at the bottom of the first post, let me know in a VM!

Thanks for the great tutorial, Chesu! I've been sitting on some fakemon ideas for a while, and now I feel confident that I can bring them to life.

Here is my first "good" sprite:
Sauraxe, Dark/Steel
Mostly from scratch, except for the arms.
What do you think?

You can use his tutorials for 4th gen sprites, you just need to remember that the limit is 80x80 for regular sprites instead of 64x64. And in his overworld tutorial he showed you with D/P/Pt, Fr/Lg and R/S/E for a large part of the tutorial.

I like it.
I do think the black portion of the tail needs some highlights though. You have plenty of gray colors already, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Well, it's not all that bad, really, especially for a first try. The only two problems I can really see are: A. His pose doesn't really look right. His legs are facing towards the front, but the rest of his body from the waist up is facing to the left. This looks very unnatural. Try to replicate the pose of your sprites in the mirror if it helps. If it looks or feels unnatural, then you should probably change your sprite accordingly; and B. The entire outline of his right arm is completely unshaded. Even though the light source is hardly hitting him there, it would at least look better if you got rid of that black outline.
I know I don't seem like one to mentor you on your spriting skills, but trust me, I've been doing it for a long time.
Why does everybody hate Joey? There are far more annoying people out there, like Liz the Picknicker ["Listen, listen! My Nidoran Female is so pretty... and... giggle... so awesome... yes...

No offense, nmorr, but I can't really tell what that sprite of yours is meant to look like. I guess it sort of looks like a new Rotom Forme. I'm not saying it's bad, though, I'm just curious as to what it might be based off of.

It's a custom pokemon of mine, it's not supposed to look like a pokemon that already exsists.

I don't think that's what they were asking, either. What is it supposed to BE? i.e. is the first one based on an egg beater, or is it holding loops of fire? And what is the thing in the middle of the wheel of fire in the third image based off of; what are its physical characteristics, that is, where is its face, etc. Right now I can't even tell if the first two are supposed to be the same as the last three...

Okay, based on my pokedex definition for them, the first one is a guardian pokemon for Moltres. The 2nd set is a Motor, you know for cars?

(EXTRA INFO) I started off drawing a pikachu and failing when I made that pokemon. I scribbled it out, flipped over the page, and I saw the image of Blazmotor, the 2nd pokemon there. I just drew Blaznom, the 1st, as a random evolution.

I hope what I said was right...

Great Tutorial! Especially for a Noob and totally unartistic like me!

Just wondering whether you'd be able to extend the Overworld tutorial for the main character to include the FLY/biking sprites?
