So...is the Normal-type Unown design okay? I'm trying to make it in the correct way, but it's not working on my computer. Anyone else who wants to do it for me???
(if you have a better unown design thats great use it)

Is this acceptable?

Oh my. Overnight the, dare I say, best sprites in the whole thread show up.

And on the subject of Unown, there's a really arbitrary and complicated problem with trying to update the whole line, so even though the sprite is fine I'm not sure I'll actually be able to implement it. I'm gonna try to figure out what the problem is but I can't promise anything.

Alright. Also, is it possible for me to provide designs? My computer is so crappy that it can't do much more than spriting in MS Paint :T

If that's referring to mine, I have to say, I'm really surprised by the amount of compliments I'm getting. Thank you!

I just now finished the backsprites, although, I don't really like how they turned out.


Would it be okay if I did Sneasel too?

Maybe the person doing the unowns could splice parts of them into numbers 0 - 9 instead of them being letters. And then they could make them white.

I'd honestly just prefer we ignore them until the rest are done. It's not something worth focusing on right now.

backs


the little hippo

i gave its sludge a little bit immature touch to make it look like it is a young version of hippowdon.

and btw they all look better without background colours.

and for that mesprit, it doesn't look so nice, don't know why or how but i think you should give it an other try

The sludge doesn't really look like sludge, you should make it more like the sludge Hippowdon has. Also the colors on the frontsprite and backsprite are different.

Please explain what's wrong with it. I can't give it another try if i don't know what to do.

i don't know, maybe its belly? is a little bit weird. but i love its design, having no eye and stuff.

and i know them, it wasnt supposed to be a real sludge, it was supposed to be ditto kind of sludge, and i think i was able to do that , the backsprites colour is diffrent due to:
1 colour limit
2 the colour blends on back, i mean it blends with other colours so it looks so bad.

I'm talking about the sludge. The colors are flipped.

I finished Sneasel.

I don't think it has as much originality as my Weavile did, but I wanted to give Weavile that "cool" vibe that I don't think it really got when it was created (although, I'm not saying it's uncool).

I like the colors and the overall design personally, however, its chest seems a little flat. It's left arm is also a little weird, about where its elbow would be. These can be easily fixed, and I think it'll make the sprite look better.

I also like the colors you chose for the Hippopotas. This may just be me, but I personally think that the lines for the sludge are a little too thin. Not the outline, but the lines within it, if that makes sense. That should make your sprite also look better, I think.

Guys.
The original Mesprit sprite also has that chest.
It also has those arms.

I looked at the sprite, and yes, it does have that funky arm, so I guess it's okay if it's there.
However, the top of the chest does resemble the one from the original sprite, but it's sort of a straight line afterwards.

This is where I can see that the chest looks fine, but
this is where I can see flatness.

I made a slight edit to the sprite on its chest (and its arm, but that's the original sprite designers' fault), so you can see the difference.

The one on the left is mine, and the one on the right is yours. The body has a curve the whole way through now, not just at the top.

I wasn't trying to say that your work was bad, I do like it. I was just trying to help improve it.

Wow, a lot of stuff went up while I wasn't looking, this thread is really picking up steam!

This Sneasel design is pretty sweet imo, but I have one suggestion. It looks to me like the grays are roughly the same, but in the originals Weavile is noticeably darker. I personally don't see that with these two, even though the Weavile is slightly darker from what I can tell, maybe you could try making it a little more so. But either way both designs are grand!

I have an update on Tentacool. Lemme know what you think, I decided to make the gems look more like diamonds in shape rather than trying to shove a bunch of crystals coming off of it. If it's good, I'll try to apply it to the animation sprite too, and then start on the back sprite.

Oh crap I have to fix the formatting of the Sneasel sprites. They're not 8bpp indexed so I'm gonna have to try to remake the palette in GG without losing too much color information.
e: AND THE AWARD TO DUMBEST IDIOT GOES TO ME, I totally missed a step that will totally save them in the right format without the extra steps I was taking. In conclusion, I am dummy me am dummy.
e2: Turns out the Duskull had too many colors though so I was going to end up losing color information on it one way or another.
e3: Tentacool should be fine

Alright, cool! I'll probably finalize the sprites on Tuesday. I know, I'm slow compared to a lot of you, but I have a trade shop and challenges to do as well. I'll let you know when I'm done.

I feel like keeping a part of it normal adds a bit of flavour, haha. I like having rare/new type combinations, I was the guy who made that evil electric/poison Chatot in the OP. I did a grass/rock Glalie and a grass/ghost Froslass too, but they were lost to photobucket last year...

I'll post my sprites when I eventually hit 15 posts.
