Well obviously this is the ....

The Official Acanthite Trainer Thread
Thread is here. (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=73183)

This is going to be a collection of the trainers sprites that Maneachicken, ccoa and myself ([ray.z]) are doing for the fan game Pokemon Acanthite, being made by Fangking Omega and his dedicated team.

Well now ....

Hippie Sprites, by [ray.z]

Well pretty soon more will be coming, from both Maneachicken and myself.

We'd both appreciate any c+c on the sprites (and of course no one is too use these unless we give our permission).

Thanks for your support :D

Completed so far ...

woW! amazing sprites you've got there! Did you scratch build them? If I were putting them in the game I would make them a choice of maincharacters for a hipee styled PKMN Adventure LOL!
Good work

August 12th, 2006, 1:20 AM
The thread is up! Sweet!

My Sprites are here...


August 12th, 2006, 1:40 AM
Those are fantastic sprites for Acanthite, They are very well done. The shading is good, the overall sprite is good also. So, it gives me a 9.1ish/10.

Awesome work guys, but that goes without saying.

Acanthite seems to be taking over?! XD

I wish.

Anyways, I figure I'd best inform you of what's coming next... could be a bit of a challenge! :P

Manea did the Ninja male and Ninja female for the Koku Clan of Bambotta City.

The Shuyo clan are Samurai.

These guys are an important plot event, and we require both a male and female samurai...

Both clans also require some sort of leader.

The idea here is that the normal Samurai are somewhat... faceless.

For the female perhaps - sorry the pic is so small, it's the best i could find :|

But this guy'd be cool as the leader

August 12th, 2006, 4:00 PM
ooh, i didn't see the ninjas at the forum board. they're kick-butt... nice work on them manea. heh, thank god you didn't give the second hippie dude colorful pants, ray. looks good.

August 13th, 2006, 1:38 AM
awsome sprites! love the hippies!

August 13th, 2006, 9:09 AM
Hmm... I may attempt the Leader of the samurai's. Looks kinda simpler than the normal Samurai.

August 14th, 2006, 11:31 PM
Well, I'm kinda in the process of doing that (I'm doing the pose at the moment), but if you wanna race to it's completion, go ahead ;)

August 14th, 2006, 11:58 PM
Nah... if your Offering its less work for Me!

August 18th, 2006, 3:43 AM
Well, here's the Figure Skater for a sidequest.


Thanks for your comments.

August 18th, 2006, 4:06 AM
man, the hippies are hip! wonderful use of colours!
the figure skater has a beautiful pose! i cant wait until i can see the whole game together, its gunna be awesome!

August 18th, 2006, 5:28 PM
My main pet peeve is that most of the heads look sort of misplaced. Other than that, the male Ninja's sword looks more like a lightsaber (not pointy enough), and the female Ninja's daggers are just kinda weird looking.
Trainer sprites are hard, though.

August 18th, 2006, 5:46 PM
Thanks Mazil and Rashoumon :D

@ Rasshoumon: The head's of which sprites are misplaced? That'll be helpful :) (and yeah, you're right, they are kinda difficult - it's the pose that gets me most of the time)

August 18th, 2006, 5:51 PM
The female Bug Catcher's hat makes her head look a bit misplaced, the TR Admin's head is angled a bit too much to the left, the Scientist appears to have no neck, and the female Young Trainer's head has too much neck, I think. It just looks too big.

August 18th, 2006, 5:57 PM
kk well thanks for your help, I'm sure Maneachicken will get right to it.

August 18th, 2006, 6:01 PM
;2226620']Thanks Mazil and Rashoumon :D

@ Rasshoumon: The head's of which sprites are misplaced? That'll be helpful :) (and yeah, you're right, they are kinda difficult - it's the pose that gets me most of the time)

you kidding me? your poses seem flawless. i'd love to be able to make such descriptive trainer sprites, rather my stupid, boring "stick-figure stance" avatar of a trainer sprite heh. what you working on next?

August 18th, 2006, 6:08 PM
Well I ain't really sure. I'm trying to do a female punk, but I can't be bothered at the moment. And I should be doing some Samarais, but once again, it's the poses that annoy me (and the samarais have heaps of clothing).

As for Maneachicken I don't know what he's doing at the moment.

And poses are annoying cause when I splice them and mix them up (I couldn't do scratch parts even if my life depended on it), it's hard to get the pose I have in mind or from a picture.

But thanks for the comment (and BTW, your avatar sprite has a mad design).

Female Bug Catcher: Hmm... Yeah. I Tried for an action pose, and Im in the Process of Editing the hat on that particular Sprite.

TR Admin: Meh. Looks Fine to Me?

Scientist: They are meant to Be cringy, Humpback, evil, odd scientists. They had to have something wrong about them.

Female Young Trainer: There is a Black Pixel I Obviously Forgot to Remove. When It comes to My review of the sprites, I'll change what I have said. Including the shortening of the neck.

and What am I working on at the moment??

I've just completed the Hiker AND Mafia Trainers.

August 18th, 2006, 11:32 PM
Mafia trainers aye? So why don't you post them then?

Tha Pkmn Prodigy
August 19th, 2006, 5:39 AM

August 20th, 2006, 12:29 AM
I will Do, Im going to post them Soon.

Hikers First on Acanthite, then on Here.

August 20th, 2006, 1:47 AM
kk well I'll be waiting then. BTW, when are you gonna have the mafia sprites done?

August 20th, 2006, 2:18 AM
Hopefully Tommorow. I'll Post them on Acanthite first.

Sorry they're 2x, they're set up for the game.

And a random trainer, this one is a self-portrait. Might show up in-game, might not.

Hey All those sprites are looking really great (hehe, you can use as many colours as you want) I love the shading, since it isn't overly done and my favourites are the Hippie sprites!

Ray-7 your sprites are so cool did you do them yourself

October 22nd, 2006, 6:07 AM
Pokemaster, you arent allowed to showcase other peoples work with asking, so yes those sprites are Ray-z's great work.

October 22nd, 2006, 3:20 PM
Actually there are sprites by Meana and Ccoa ( SP? for both) in the first post, not all are his, but anyway Ray.Z and crew I am loving the trainers, I can't wait to play Acanthite.

sorry whitey I didn't know......so shut up

October 23rd, 2006, 3:44 AM
Thanks Pokemaster, WPG and Unoriginally Funny (needs to be shortened down :P) for your praise, we really appreciate it.

Wow, I have a crew now too :P

But yeah, we should get around to posting some more up aye ... I guess I get a little sidetracked :P

Thanks for the comments.

Poke'master, there was no need to tell anyone to "shut up" - Whitey didn't do anything wrong in that post. Also, your signature and profile are unsuitable for the forum. I suggest you edit them or a staff member may have to edit it themselves. If you have personal differences they should be sorted out over PM rather than on the forum.

Please remember that one of our rules here at PC is to respect all members.
