View Full Version : My First Sprite

April 21st, 2007, 11:30 AM
Ok well I just got into spriting this morning and I have done a few things.

My first re-coloring was a green Umbreon:

Second re-coloring was a red Nidoqueen:

Third re-coloring a purple NineTails:

Then I tried to make my own sprite (its pretty bad but pls rate):
(sprite name: Roagga)

Anyway these are my first 4 sprites ever please comment and I accept all forms of criticism ;3 thanks!

Those are decent but you need to work on the shading on the first two sprites. The colours for different shades are too similar so they look like one colour in some parts. Try contrasting the brightness/darkness of the colour you want the Pokemon to be. Secondly, backgrounds tend to not be a good idea as they can show any imperfection on the outlines.
Now, your original sprite seems interesting but i cannot tell if it has a head or not. Anyway I give it 7/10.

IF your just getting into spriting, dont try anything to hard, like scratches. Stick with revamps/mixes. Your recolours are very good, but a little over-shaded.

Your main downfall is colour, on the first two they're very, very bright and vibrant, try using slightly more muted colours.

As for your scratch, well, it's very good for a first attempt. Well, the main problem again is colour, you really need a higher contrast between the shades, on the topic of shading, that could also do with a tad of improvement. Try making each shade curve a little, with a tad of dithering to add a feel of texture to the sprite.

All in all you seem to have the right attitude and raw talent to become a good spriter, keep at it and I look forward to seeing more of your future works :D

Like the Nidoqueen its my fave of yours,it looks ok the others i dont much care for(Dont mean to seem harsh) I love umbreon but green just doesnt seem to look right on umbreon. the fakes background is to dark cant really see it so ill rate it a 6/10 probably and 8/10 with better bg color. Um thats a guess though i cant really see it other than that their not half bad.

the nidoqueen looks like you need to work a bit on it.

For a first-timer those sprites are pretty decent. Yeh i agree that you need to work on the shading a bit more.
