Voting for Valora17 because I think -ty- did too much and the colours are too bright.

I was saving my 500th post but w/e.

Voting for Valora17, basically because I believe that it really somehwta resembles it's pre evolutions which is Parasect right? I had to think of what pokemon -ty-'s descended from. So from that, I vote for Valora17. But good work both of you.

Let me start off by saying they are both great! -ty-'s is GREAT! I love the Jynx evo, it has great expression, and vivid color, pose, and design! The only thing that could be worked on is a bit of darker lines, but this is it. Valora, also GREAT! But I do not see a pokemon here, I see more of a digimon. I like the mushroom growing tree-like on the back! But I have to say the sprite seems a bit lackluster in expression and pose. So I vote for -ty-. Good luck to both!

BTW, Curious, I think that it is unfair to judge by which one looked the most like the pre-evolution. Look at Milotic, Octillery, Dragonite, or like any of the butterfly/moth pokemon!

i like Valora17's because of the quality if the sprite and the general idea, it could have had a better design though

While I don't have a strong preference to either of the designs, I do think that Valora17's sprite is drawn to a style more closely matching that of GameFreak's.

I agree with SoaringSomeone. The Parasect evolution looks more like Gamefreak style. I like the colors and design. I don't think the Jynx Evo is close to the other picture, but it is pretty intresting and neat. I would like to note a few very tiny problems. 1, the colors are too bright. It also looks like it is made from contest props, (I just thought of this now,) Which looks good if it was in a contest, in game of course.

I vote for Valora17's sprite because it has a better concept, design, and is shaded better in my opinion. If you get right down to it, it looks much more like a Pokemon, too. Nice job to both of you, though!

I vote for ty. The colors are vibrant, and I like how the pokemon has personality and emotes someting. The shading is great and the whole singing pose is excellent. All-in-all I wish this was a real pokemon!

Valora's is a bit messy; I try to invision it walking and I can't. The legs and face are just kinda there and it's hard to understand the concept. Also the Pokemon has no personality. I like pokemon that exude something whether it is confidence, cuteness, fierceness, or glamourous. The shading is nice though.

I went for -ty-, but I would like it a lot more if the sprite was smaller.

Valora's sprite looks like a pokémon. The addition of the microphone in -ty-'s kind of killed it for me. The colours were pretty, well, not great, too.
The mushroom crab looks like a really pretty part of an environment, though. It's nice.
