Just as a point of clarification, are the front sprites from the first post already recolored to what you want, or are we supposed to do that?

Edit: I'll just assume that it is. Here's my attempt:

Hopefully it's up to scratch. I didn't end up resizing the frontsprite, because, from paw to firetip, it was the exact same size as the Gen III sprite. If this is an issue, I can resize it, although it seemed fine when I tested it.

Yes, the front sprites sheets on the first post are already colored to what I want. But why did you change the colors of Quilava's backsprite? The Quilava front sprite in the sheet is exactly the same as HG/SS, with no color alterations whatsoever, so the backsprite shouldn't have the different colors you used. Your backsprite has different color distribution to the HG/SS backsprite, which is weird because my front sprite is straight from HG/SS.

As for resizing the front sprite, you're not judging correctly. The amount of pixels does not matter at all, actually. Think of it this way: if R/S/E Quilava was to pose like HG/SS Quilava, how big would it be?

Asides from those issues I mentioned, you resized the backsprite perfectly (except it looks like you missed a few pixels on it's back fire, but I can fix that). Don't worry about fixing the front or backsprites, I'll resize the front sprite myself, but I'll use your backsprite after I fix the colors and fire. Thank you for your contribution

Ah, I'm sorry. I'm generally a very analytic person by nature, so I typically use numbers, like pixel height, to figure out if things look right. I changed the color of the backsprite because I thought you changed the color of the frontsprite; I neglected to check with the existing sprites, so that was my fault. I couldn't figure out what part of the back fire I missed...My only conclusion was that you're talking about the flame to the farthest right, which doesn't have an outline. The original sprite also didn't have an outline there, so I was just emulating that. Of course, it's your sprite, so put any outlines you want on it

Of course, I don't mean to sound critical or anything. My main goal was to thank you, both for your sprites and for allowing me to help

I'm talking about this:


Yes, I know the right part doesn't have an outline on the original sprite, but the left part does. The outline looks really sloppy in your sprite, while in the original its really clean.

Also even though the sheets I posted for Gen I-III contain recolored sprites, not every Pokemon is recolored. I only recolor the Pokemon that don't look anything like their Sugimori art, such as Parasect or Golem. I've also recolored certain Pokemon to mesh better with their evolutionary families (and their Sugimori art), hence why I changed Gallade's red thing to maroon, because the Ralts family's red things in the B/W sprites are maroon, and Gallade's thing in its Sugimori art is also maroon, just like Ralts, Kirlia, and Gardevoir's Sugimori art. But there are plenty of Pokemon that I didn't change the colors at all, such as Charizard and Steelix.

EDIT: Just for clarification, I don't mean to sound angry or anything. I really appreciate it when people like you help, especially when they do a good job, because the way you resized the backsprite (not the color issue, but the actual clean up job you did) is actually really good.

Oh, I see what you mean...I was looking at my sprite zoomed in, and I'm sure you know that viewing a sprite might look good zoomed in, but bad zoomed out. Now I can stop cluttering up your thread... Thanks again for everything...hopefully, I'll end up doing some more sprite work for you.

EDIT: I just saw you edited yours before I posted my response. For lack of a fancier way to say it, you don't sound angry. I'm honored that someone with your expertise in spriting thinks highly of me; I was worried the whole time that you'd hate it, to be honest. I'll definitely help as much as I can!

lol please do! Just for future reference, on average for most 4th Gen front sprites, I resized about 90%. There are indeed some Pokemon that don't need resizing, for instance, I did not resize Shellos, or Chingling. Pokemon like Koffing or Cyndaquil don't need resizing either. Just use good judgement I guess.

If you look at the first post, you'll see that I'm at Herdier.

Lets see if I can do this again...I decided to do Cyndaquil, because it seemed a little odd to start in the middle of an evolutionary line (Quilava is my favorite pokemon, which is why I jumped to it first). I took your advice and didn't resize the frontsprite (I hope you don't think I can only resize backsprites). Anyway, here it is:


I ended up spending nearly 45 minutes on the backsprite, and just as I was finished, I realised that HGSS and DPPt use different backsprites for Cyndaquil. I blame Bulbapedia; The normal backsprite was DPPt, and the shiny backsprite was HGSS -.-". I like the HGSS sprite more anyway.

I hope you like it D:

Your main problem is perfecting the outlining. Just make sure you look at the unresized sprite while cleaning up, and make sure every single outline is as clean as possible. These are my edits:




Also never, ever get your sprites from Bulbapedia. Lots of Pokemon had their backsprites changed in Pokemon Platinum to fix anatomy errors, and a few Pokemon had even more changes to their backsprites in HG/SS. I get all of my backsprites from veekun: http://veekun.com/dex/downloads Bulbapedia only has the crappy anatomically incorrect D/P backsprites. Make sure all of your backsprites are from veekun, and choose HG/SS.

Dear Rodriguez, I don't think Chaos Rush would teach those. Actually, never. If you want to add Pokemon to Fire Opal, just use the sprites available from Chaos Rush right now using Wichu's Pokemon Sprite Editor.

Well for front sprite, I just open up plain old MS Paint, shrink around 85%-90ish% depending on Pokemon, and then zoom in and smooth out all the distorted pixels, while looking at the original sprite right next to it as a reference.

For back sprites, I just open up MS Paint, shrink the HG/SS backsprite to exactly 80%, then zoom in and clean up the distorted pixels, while looking at the original sprite for reference.

For Unova Pokemon backsprites, I either make a custom sprite from scratch, using both the official backsprites and the Sugimori art as a reference, or I just crop part of the B/W backsprite and enlarge it, and then clean it up.

Also if a Pokemon's colors look absolutely nothing like its Sugimori art, such as Golem or Mantyke, then I adjust its color palette to resemble its Sugimori art more.

Chaos Rush, do you think you could elaborate on here about what you want specifically in an outline after a sprite has been resized? I find that to be the toughest part, and I bet that there are others out there (myself included) who would want to help more with the sprites if we knew how to do it "properly" (being an inexact science and all).

The rest seems pretty straightforward (80% on back sprites, relative size on front sprites, use correct palettes, etc.) but the outlining seems abstract. Any help would be appreciated, and I think the people who watch this thread would pay you back for it many times over. A layman's explanation though, please.

Thanks and keep it up.

Looking at your backsprite, I circled the parts that I found problematic, and circled the corresponding part in the original (left is your sprite, right is HG/SS).

There are certain outlining techniques in the original sprite that you have to notice and observe, and then you have to replicate it in the resized sprite. You can't just "clean it up", because the outlining technique might be lost in the process. For instance, look at the big circle on Totodile's head. If you look at the HG/SS one, you can clearly see an outlining technique that was lost in your sprite. You have to look at the original and think, "Hm...why did the artist draw it this way?", and then apply the same logic to the resized sprite. Or at least, that's how I do it.

I'm not sure if this would help or not, but I went and did my own version of Totodile as an example, and you can compare them if you want.


Left is yours, right is mine. Hope this helps. Come to think of it, Totodile's original sprite is kinda weird anyways, I'm sure if you tried another Pokemon it'll look just fine.


EDIT:




If anyone can come up with a better backsprite for Stoutland, please go right on ahead...it was the best I could do after several designs, and I can't seem to come up with a better one. I personally think my Stoutland back is "okay".

I can't believe I'm posting another sprite... I almost feel like I'm doing too many. Maybe I should slow down? I feel like I'm cluttering up your nice thread

I felt a sense of obligation to finish out the Cyndaquil family by doing Typhlosion. I'll post it here first:



I was really stressing out over this one; I felt bad that you've had to redo all of mine, so I tried to make it perfect. I doubt I did though...you're much better at noticing that kind of stuff than I am, so I'll post here anyway and hope you'll forgive me for my poor outlining again

Also, that thicker bit near the base of Typhlosion's neck bugs me >_< I wanted to make it normal-sized, but the original sprite never lies, so thicker it is.

Edit: I remember what I was going to say. For Stoutland's sprite, it looks weird that you can only see one-half of the beard on the backsprite...It seems like you should maybe be able to see a little bit of it on the other side also. The darker brown also seems really dark; I don't know if you can tone it down or not.
...
I sound super-critical, I think...I'm sorry! I just want to help D:

There's some minor nitpicks, but I don't have time to list them right now. But its good enough for me to use (with some very minor edits), so I'll add it to the first post this weekend

Yeah, but the original sprite doesn't have a clump of ugly red pixels either.

Don't worry about sounding too critical. I don't like the Stoutland backsprite, so any suggestions on improvement are welcome. I'll take those suggestions into consideration.

EDIT: I'm afraid I'll only be using the Typhlosion backsprite (I had to make some edits though). The front sprite is too small, and there's some pixels you missed, like the dithering technique on Typhlosion's left foot/leg was lost in your resized version. Also there are pixel inconsistencies between your normal and shiny sprites. Are you recoloring them by hand? There's a special flawless method of recoloring that works much better than recoloring pixel by pixel, which I'm assuming you did.

I love the Stoutland backsprite you made, personally. But hey, that's just me. C:

EDIT: It just occurs to me that I had actually attempted to make a custom sprite myself. I remember editing Archeops's sprite so that its tail is behind it, rather than dangling down below it, freeing up space so it fits within a 64x64 sprite. I was doing this for my hack (before I decided to stop using Archen's evolutionary line in favor of Tirtouga's), but I still have the leftover sprite. Just did a few touch-ups on it and then recolored it in Archeops' shiny palette.

Lemme know what you think of it, if you don't like it, then that's no big deal. I have no backsprite only because I had used the actual B/W backsprites for all Gen V Pokemon (which I now realize looks really stupid). I'm debating on doing a backsprite, though, although that might be pushing my skill limits. :Y

I'm debating on doing a backsprite, though, although that might be pushing my skill limits. :Y
I don't like how choppy and rushed the tail looks, but I'll consider the idea of having the tail behind the sprite when I do Archeops's sprite.

Oh and on the bright side:




These backsprites turned out quite nicely IMO, almost as good as my Servine :D

EDIT: Since making backsprites for Gen V Pokemon is significantly harder than making front sprites, I decided I'm going to focus completely on Gen V backsprites specifically. Similar to how Wiznatts had all the backsprites on one sheet, I'm going to do the same:


This would speed up the process a little, and it allows other people to contribute more easily. (Jambo51 I hope you're fine with me doing this because I know you would prefer having front sprites and backsprites at the same time...)

Yes, I would prefer them both together. However, I leave it entirely up to you. Whatever you feel works, go with it. In the mean time, I shall return to fighting against several ROMs and their Pokédexes...

Would you like me to try and fix the tail, Chaos Rush? I can agree that it definitely looks choppy. I also started working on Meowth and Persian (because I've now gotten inspiration to improve myself), although at the moment I'm not very happy with the way Meowth's backsprite looks.

Sure go ahead, but I can't guarantee I will use it, because my picky-ness is ridiculously high. Also I really hope you're not making custom backsprites for Meowth and Persian, all Pokemon from Gen I-IV will use their HG/SS backsprite resized 80%, and recolored to match the front sprite if necessary.

Okay, thanks. It's no big deal if you use it or not, I just wanted to get your opinion on it. C: Also, I'm not making anything custom, I'm using the HG/SS backsprites at 80% like you specified.

Okay, good Besides, even if I don't end up using it, you'll still be credited for the idea, and working on sprites will make you improve regardless


EDIT: Elemental monkey backs!

Simisage is WIP though (obviously)
