Alright, I've been spriting on and off for a few years now. I'm a little rusty, but here goes.


Kingdra based on the Sugimori artwork for HeartGold and SoulSilver. Sprite form.


V.1 My personal trainer representative, using bits of Falkner, Jasmine, Misty, and Silver (and minor custom edits to hair and clothing).


V.2


V.1 Same V.1 as above, just as a battle pose. I used the same people and did little custom work (What can I say? Silver's clothing design was perfect for me!)


V.2


Signature I made using the above sprites.

On to some older stuff... (Just a note, this was pre-Gen IV, so it's pretty old. I hadn't even started spriting until the beginning of Gen III)

Spoiler:



An Espeon revamp. Gold, I believe?


Back in Gen. III, I redid the Johto Leaders... Fun stuff.

I had attempted some Gyms too.


Violet Gym


Azalea Gym

I had done Goldenrod, too, but I lost it somewhere... And another note: I'm horrible with tiles. I can't make maps for my life. Well, maybe for my life. But I don't enjoy them as much.

your Kingdra is the best one of your work, I really love it. The shading is great but for the eye you should fix it up a bit

Well thanks, and I'll see what I can do about the eye.

Here's a preview on my latest. I haven't finished yet, but I'm planning on unveiling my SoulSilver team through pixel-overs.


EDIT: Is this any better? I'm not sure what you meant on the eyes other than a few loose pixels. I've also edited the one in my first post to match this one.

Your personal trainer is my favorite so far; the color combination and hairstyle seem to match perfectly well.

The trainer representative is really quite pro, nicely done. It may just be because I'm still unfamiliar with the shiny new HG/SS sprites, but it was hard for me to notice that you reused pieces from existing stuff and that says alot about your talent.

The maps seem a bit stale, but I'm willing to bet that it's simply due to the unexciting style of Gen II and III. Compared to the new stuff the maps look boring, but I'm sure they'd fit in with older stuff.

Espeon's shading is really impressive.

Hope to see more from you. Always good to see fresh talent around here.

Awesome, thank you so much. I appreciate it. When the VS sprites came out, it was something I had to do. Mugs are easier to do for me because I sprite Fire Emblem mugs quite often (or at least had in the past). For example:

This was a custom mug I made about 2 years ago.

So faces come a little easier to me than other things.

@T3h Kaiser: Thanks much for your comments, I appreciate it. I know I'm still rusty (I haven't really sprited in a while before yesterday, actually...). And the maps are pretty horrid, if you ask me. I am definitely NOT good with maps.

Cool, thanks so much for the nice comments. When I have time, I'll finish the Espeon pixel-over.

EDIT: Finished this for World King...

SK, you're epic. Thanks so much for that. You're on my list of Gods to praise. *builds altar*

Wow, everything is so awesome! I really like the VS. sprite you did as well as battle pose. If you dont mind though, I'm going to critisize on some of the older things, gyms to be specific, if you dont mind. If you do just ignore everything below this part. xD

Violet Gym: Weeell walls look very weird to be honest, I think it'd be better if they were dark blue or something, to match the rest of the gym. Also, the floor tiles, I like what you've done with it, but the part where it goes from normal to black doesnt really match with it...
Azela Gym: Outline of Tree is missing it looks like and green shadow under is slightly odd. Also maybe the grass should be darker.

Hope I wasnt being picky or anything, just trying to help. But, what I critisized was old as you said, and you have gotten better, but thought I should critisize anyway. The redone Johto Gym Leaders look great though.

Yeah, I'm horrible with tiles, anyway, so it's all good. And that was what, 2005? Yeah. It was FR/LG era that I did that, so there.

Better then what I can do, I can revamp and highly edit but I can never make 100% custom things. I really like the in battle sprite though, you should make more then one pose so it's more gym leader like. xD

It would of been so much cooler if you gave the guy white and black hair like that lady from 101 and 102 Dalmatians (forgot her name lol) but either way this is really good

Very interesting pixel work, although you more or less took the official artwork of Pokémon and converted them to pixel art, I do see your effort. The tiles I'm not too sure about, seems to me that you could have been able to tweak them up to your current skill standard, maybe even revamp your maps to something more fresh and unconventional. Either way, keep it up.

Well thanks much. I know I'm not too great. And my tiles are quite a mess. I still have a lot to learn.
