Okay, so let me break it down for you. Fundamentally, it's the same, but I made a few small aesthetic changes that I think you'll like. First I changed the general flow of the lighting from the tail, just to give the piece a bit more direction. Second, because of the change in lighting, I changed the shading to reflect that. Third, I've made the highlights yellow. Fourth, floofed up the neck fluff, for fun! n_n; Fifth, I gave some direction to the ear fluff to match the lighting on the tail. Sixth, I didn't change the face-- it's just unfinished.

I know it sounds like a lot but, really, the changes accumulate to like 8 pixels. Anyway, I hope you like it! I gotta be honest, it's one of my favorites so far.
:O
WHY WOULDN'T I LIKE THAT!

It looks great Alexial!
The changes were much needed! In fact, I kinda like your version than mine :D
That light-wisp was pretty cool too.
And I'm cool with anyone altering what I did, because it's not really a Community Project if no one's allowed to express their opinions! :D

@Beefy
We've already got a candy-mon, so might as well have a Taco as well!

Haha I was just messing around with the Taco stuff, if I had a personalized pokemon it would probably be a sports based pokemon. I might actually make something like that.

Alexial@ Im gonna learn to create sprites to help out, I think that all of our fakemon should be colored and turned into sprites to make the Pokedex look complete.

Do it. I think we should all have at least one Fakemon that's emblematic of ourselves. I mean, it's our pokedex after all!

And funny you should mention that...



It's by no means finished and still needs a heck of a lot of polishing.. but I wanted to show you asap! n_n;

I'm having a hard time negotiating all of the different shades of grey. I mean, there's not too many shades in your original drawing; but normally I outline in a darker color / shade in a darker color / highlight in a lighter color (as expected) and it seems that one of those three always ends up being indistinguishable from the adjacent shade. That's not to say it's a bad thing, but I definitely had to get creative when it came to the base colors and base outline. Which, honestly, is a good thing! I really got to push myself with this one.

I highly recommend anyone who hasn't dabbled in pixel art to do it over the course of this project because it's seriously fun. There's some really great tutorials over in Pixel Art too [check it out!]. Anyone who does want to start spriting, I will gladly help out (to the best of my ability) along the way. :) But I agree, I do think it will be fundamental at some point to have the better half of our designs sprited and far be it for me to take on that task alone. x_x;

Pfft, Alexial, where's the navy blue? I think you may have missed BeefTaco's second post with an updated sketch. d:

EDIT: So I change the body colors like Nakuzami requested, its not as similar to Dialga as I thought so Im choosing this color

Spoiler:


Name: Ocendra
Type: Water
Classification: The Sea Titan Pokemon

Special Abilities
Pressure: The Pokémon raises the foe’s PP usage.
Multiscale: When this Pokémon is at full HP, damage is lessened.


Ill be starting work on the other titans. Also I think it would be awesome if somebody did a a Region map, I pick Alexial since hes the best artist here.
Just a simple color change, so I don't think it's an issue to fix, lol.
(Other than that, great sprites!)

I'm just plain bad at the pixel art, lol. I could check out that tutorial and see if it helps at all. I have checked it out before, but I didn't go very far into it.

@Slendy - Seems to be coming along nicely! Can't wait to see how it turns out~ c;

@_@ it's so beautiful Alexial! and thanks for agreeing changing the colors you're a real pal.


Man I just can't believe how good it looks, I kinda wanna make the other legendaries already.

EDIT:

My first sprite attempt, not as good as Alexial but I think it looks ok

Welcome, Oops. [:

Another WIP of the Fakemon I've been drawing.

(Sorry, something messed up and turned it sideways and I'm too lazy to fix it.)

The funky looking tentacles are intentional; same with the hands. Each hand kind of does its own thing, unless the creature is trying to use them.

Oops@ Thats pretty cool, got name for it? Also its okay if its not related to Greek mythology, not all pokemon have to follow that theme

Slender@ Don't you think its a little to scary for a pokemon, don't get me wrong design wise this it the best you made imo, it would fit perfectly for something like a Persona game but I don't know it just feels too scary for Pokemon. Just a suggestion but maybe keep the design the same but tone down some scary features.

Hey Oops! Glad you made your way over to our little project! n_n; Your fakemons don't need to be Greek mythology related at all! That's just the "reoccurring theme" not a mandatory element to every fakemon. But hey, we're just happy to have more participants! If you can give us a name for your Grass-Bird, that would be wonderful.

@ Slender : I am inclined to agree with Beefy.. but I can't pinpoint any particular feature that makes me think "oh that's too much", you know? I think something that's lending to it's "creepiness" is the style it's drawn, not necessarily the design itself. Once it's on clean paper and done digitally, I'm sure it'll have a completely different feel. So I say keep going and see where it takes you. Besides, it's not like Drapion isn't scary as hell to some people, you know?

@ Beefy : I'm still working on your Sea Dragon. .__.; I haven't been feeling very well today, so I've been rather slow. Regardless, I love the counterpart to Grekko. They're totally the Hitmonchan/Hitmonlee, Thro/Sawk of our dex. <3

Thanks for your comments guys. I'm really bad with naming things so if anyone else would want to name it maybe?
Also, I personally think it's slightly too colourful, don't you think? Eh. And do you guys think it should have a pre-evolution or something Idk.

Note to self : Don't shade your drawings because your shading sucks.

I was honestly aiming to give it a creepy effect. [: I don't know if we should even use it, though...it doesn't seem much like a Pokemon to me. Or at all, for that matter. It just looks like something that would kill you in your sleep.

Haha, looks like everyone is getting sick. Hope you guys get better. x;
Now then. It's almost 1pm here and I haven't eaten yet, so I probably should stop lurking. I'll try to get back here later with a drawing of that Fighting-type.

Jetstream@ One of my fav cards as well when I used to play, good luck with your design

Oops@ What kinda bird are you going with this design, parrot, eagle, falcon? if you would tell me Ill help you come up with a name. Also a pre-evolution sound great, the more the merrier right?

Slender@ You don't have to drop it, maybe you can finish it post it and we can help you tweak it a bit.

Well I'm done with my Fighting type Eveelution, it took me some time to figure something out but I eventually got there

Spoiler:

Name: Strifeon or Strikeon (which one you guys like more?)
Type: Fighting
Classification: Scrapping Pokemon

Special Abilities
Vital Spirit: Prevents the Pokémon from falling asleep.
Moxie: Attack rises when you knock out an opponent.

I haven't really though what kinda bird is that. I think it looks more like a Falcon though? And alright, I'll go ahead and sketch out a pre-evo or something.

Oh, a community dex based on greek mythology? Well doesn't this seem interesting! If it's alright, I'd very much like to join in, creating Fakemon and what-have-ya is one of my favorite past time activities, so to say. I hope that it's okay for me to join? I consider myself to be pretty good at spriting and not too shabby at drawing and I can post some work of mine if you need some kind of reassurance.

Yes! Welcome to the project Mr. Mammoth! We love it when new people can join. And heck, we always need more spriters! Just post some of your designs and jump right on in. ;)

And also a big omg. Beefy, that fighting Eevee is fantastic. I never even thought a Fighting type could look like that. It's perfect. Also, I like "Strifeon" better.

Oops, you've been added the our list of contributors. :) Now keep'em coming!

Yay, more people for the dungeon!
Welcome to our lair,Mr. Mammoth, where we hope for you to forever stay :D
@-Oops
Wow, after less than a day and you already got a Fake! I like the color scheme and the design alot, considering its a green parrot of some kind. And the shading wasn't too bad, If you look back in the early pages of this thread, mine was far worse :L

@Slenderman
I really like your Slenderman Fake!
And to expand on what BeefTaco said about it, I think the reason why it looks too "creepy" is that it looks too human. Otherwise, I wouldn't mind if you change it or not, because it looks pretty darn good already :D

@BeefTaco
I like the Eevee design. The nun-chucks for a tail was pretty creative too! But since you used a nunchuck, why not make it more "kung-fooey"? Just a suggestion though!
