The previous thread had a last post dated back to June 22nd 2013. It's not that old, but I'll revive it anyway. Here is the link to the old thread.
The basic instructions are to continue the artist's previous image and expand on it by adding colours, shading it, changing outlines, add appendages, add parts, etc. until we have completed and created our very own Pokemon! Read the rules for some extra information and looking at the old thread will help you understand the game. Any questions and concerns can be posted here and I will get to it ASAP!
Please follow these rules otherwise your contributions will not be accepted because of the violation.
Artists must make small changes to the sprite such as a simple hue change or adding some spikes, etc. Do not try and complete the sprite in one go just so you can start a new one yourself.
The size restriction is 96 x 96. Use this size and ONLY this size to post your post.
Do not double post and make changes twice in a row. Once you've posted your contribution and changes, it's final.
The current Pokemon/Fakemon must be completed before starting a new one.
Have fun with this and make funny or crazy stuff!
The save file-type must be in .PNG format or .GIF. The former is more recommended.
There is no palette restriction. You can have as much colours on the sprite as well but pay attention to rule 1.
Do not start colouring, shading until the outline is complete. After that you may alter colours, outlines, design, etc. Addition: Whenever it's time for a new sprite, you can start with a solid colour/silhouette. Make sure it's not too large.
I'll try and make .gifs of the progression of the sprites as they are completed. The sprites are chronologically ordered.
Yep, adding more entangled tentacles into what is now more apparent as a sea-witch. Water/Fairy, I reckon. Somebody please complete the shading and all, because I honestly thought these new tentacles were a must for later use. Also added some studs.
That sprite honestly looks incredible, I'm sad to have not been a part of it! I had no idea the game had restarted haha. There's nothing I could add to improve it though, so let's start on a new sprite.
This is how they should create new Pokemon.
Get about 20 to 30 artists together.
Draw a random scribbly line.
And tell them to get to work.
They each add on, pass it down the line, and when it's done, have some other artists screw up the colorings but keep it looking nice.
Throw out half of them after a week's work, and BAM!
