i agree... but i generally feel that something more can be done with the carrot concept.

i'd like to think of that carrot line as some equivalent of Bellsprout and evos, but even Bellsprout has some unique qualities to it that makes it well regarded even though it is typically a vine connected to a bell.

The carrot basic looks like it needs some work on the greenery. And, the first stage, maybe it should get 'blunted' or atleast sized down?

Yup, just that I don't have a good program for resizing cuase whenever I resize any sprite, it becomes fuzzy and pixelated. :x

In any case I'll just let people know again: You may edit my sprites to add improvements etc. etc. xD

Today when I was looking at the basic ideas for pokemon I saw "Narwhal". Since Narwhals are my favorite animal I created an outline for a narhwal pokemon. The oultline still needs quite a bit of work. Anyone can do something with this I don't really care. Anyway here it is....

I think that it needs to be smaller. A lot actually. The BW sprites have 96x96 so i don't think it would be wise to be bigger then that.

It's really good!
You should just work on the lower fluke and make it more curvy.

Whoa, sick. I decided to work with the carrot, so i cut it's tip off to suggest second stageness... Maybe make the final stage bigger?



And concept:

Name: ???
Type: Grass
Blunt Carrot Pokemon
Pokedex: It is an overgrown carrot, but it has it's tip cut off. It sticks it's leaf-arms into the soil to absorb nutrients from the ground. The leaf-arms can also be used for combat.

I was hoping you'd resize the whole sprite instead of just the orange bit. xD
Like, instead of just chopping the tip, you could resize the orange bit so that it has the same size as the final stage carrot.
The leaves on the head you could leave, but the feet leaves should also be shortened.
Or you could resize the whole sprite using a program and then redraw the sprite since it'll be all pixelated. That's what I intended to do but well, I'm a lazy guy. xD

In any case, I can't make the final stage carrot bigger, only wider. xD The height of the final stage is 96 pixels tall already. xDDD

Yeah, well I'm lazy as well.... I was suggesting that it was nearly full grown, except it had a flaw... And yeah, the final should be wider.

Carrots are taproots... Removing the pointed part basically renders them useless.

What have you done Nimblethumbs!?
You made boss carrot sad! D:

And uhhh, I have no idea how to make the final evo wider apart from making the vines more showy? xD
Or change his pose, like make the carrot spread his leaves and do a buggi dance. x3

I kinda love the 1st Evo but the Basic and the 1st Evo don't really match. Like the colour are different and the Sprite style is also different. That's just my opinium.

I was thinking you could make the root wider and more bulbous. Look here. Not all carrots are long and thin and since we're not really going for realism we can exaggerate as much as we need to. I could take a stab at it, making it smaller and all.

Raaaarrr Scyther and Scizor are totally different colors and look really different raaaRRR!!!

Anyways yeah I agree with you, but hopefully a happy pixel artist will suddenly bump on this thread and decide to fix up our palletes. xD

I think the final evolution is perfect as it is, and while I don't have a problem with the middle evolution being larger, it is kind of plain... and of course there's nothing wrong with sizing it down a bit.

Ok you are right about that thing about Scyther and Scizor xD. But still the colours are really weird.

It's Pokemon. They're all weird.

Anyways nuff with those jokes and stuff.
Yeah I geuss my palette is too bright or something.

Some Pokemon that evolve have their palettes change for instance Charmander is orange and Charmeleon is red.

The Gen 1 Pokemon which evolve into Steel types also have a really different color (Scizor is completely ketchup lol) such as Steelix, becoming more "blue-er".

Also Golbat's evolution looks really different compared to Zubat -> Golbat, where the blue big bat evolves into a smaller purple bat with 4 wings.

Anyways that was just a long excuse. I seriously think that my palette doesn't match with Pokette's style. xD
Maybe someone should darken it or something.

EDIT: Maybe my palette is too bright AND I have too many dark and black lines? O_O

Okay, so here's a chubby carrot and a slight alteration to it to try and give it a little something different.



I could have tried for different colors, and maybe done a slightly cleaner job, but I just wanted to get the main part done. Maybe tnguye3 you might want to give it a final touch or something.

I also unintentionally made it look like this guy. Oh well.

I edited the Basic Fakemon with the colours of the 1st Evo and i really think it got better.

I made 2 version. 1 wise the horned also edited and another with the horn with it's original colours.

What do you think



Here is the evo btw

EDIT: I'm not saying that it doesn't need more work. Because the only thing i did was change the colours but i think it looks kinda better. IDK

Dayum nice job there Scarf!
I really like both and I actually think I like the 2nd one (with the 3 spikes) more as it gives the carrot a more "Pokemon" feel to it.

Nice job, the sprites seem to compliment each other now (that's how you say it right? xD)
Also I think you should leave the horn as it was originally, as the whole point of the evo is that it "becomes" steel type.
