View Full Version : First atempt at spiritng

June 19th, 2007, 5:58 PM
I got bored two days ago,asked a friend what color scheme should I try on a ninetales, she suggested gold/black.


I quite love black parts but gold parts I don't, I feel something's wrong. oh well

Yesterday I atempted dark ninetales.


I feel as if I sucessed, I love this one.

I wanted to try black/red and on another pokemon so I chose vulpix


I think I sucessed

this was my fourth atempt


I hate the shade of blue I picked but I did my best.

This was a request by someone on Furcadia


she asked for tan and dark pink cubone. I hate shade of pink but I love tan though it's kinda pinkish.

I acpect feedback. thanks for taking time to check my artwork out. I'll work on some more. all above were recolored in MSPaint


I've made more since this post:

Yesterday I asked my freiends to pick random #. they did


Heh, I had to use 3 colors for this. I'm not sure if i like or not.

I asked again.


Easiest recolor I did.

then I jsut had to recolor my favorite pokemon


im liking it!

a friend told me they loved Ponyta.


I only recolored fire parts. I'm loving it!

I wanted to try back spirit recolor


Haha blue eevee. lol I picked out totally random colors but it's blue.

Another recolor of back


Similiar colors to ponyta's mane i recolored.

Today I wanted to try recoloring a trainer..


So I did. Brunette. I'mm a natural brunette. Pink trim inspired me to do all purple for dress, bag, shoes and hat. Haha.

These are really good! You picked the shade colors very well! I love these, keep up the good work!

June 20th, 2007, 2:56 AM
Thank you, Rivion! ^_^ I'm glad you like those.

June 20th, 2007, 5:35 AM
Better than my first whack at it. I tried making a pink Charizard and the colors were WAY too different from each other.

Well good job!

June 20th, 2007, 5:42 AM
Well done, but you might want to consider outline shading and white backgrounds. ;)

June 20th, 2007, 12:41 PM
the outline are shaded and sure about white backgrounds. Thank you all for your comments. LOL, Chirika, Gold parts on black/gold ninertales were bit off..lol

June 25th, 2007, 1:53 PM
lol ninertales (good name!)... For the ponyta, I noticed an the top of the fire, there's alittle bit of pink on the outline. I reccomend changing to dark blue or another dark color.

June 26th, 2007, 11:47 AM
Ok thanks, pkmon!



My first splice. Nineichu! I'm proudddd


My first cusotom Pokeball I love it!

Also request.


First Trainer card with pokemon I recolored.


I was in mood for swimmer lol


I wanted to try Raichu. I'm not liking tail.


I wanted to do something like that pose. its one of my favorite poses.


Above is my most recent work I got bored, picked out random trainer and recolored it

June 26th, 2007, 12:38 PM
wow you really like blue&pink don't cha ^^ You know how you use lighter colors for the outlines? I'd like to see you do a darker color outline to see how it'd turn out!

June 26th, 2007, 12:42 PM
Haha I noticed most has blue/pink of all shades lol. thanks for suggestions. I'm wondering if i should go ahead and atempt eevee and its eveolutions splice...

June 26th, 2007, 1:07 PM
good Idea! I think i'm going to attempt revamping a Feraligatr

June 26th, 2007, 4:34 PM
Hahahaha i'm in silly mood -ish wondering how she should atempt that splice-

June 27th, 2007, 5:35 AM
great work it is really good, nice colors, good pokemon choice, keep it up! ;)

June 27th, 2007, 7:00 AM
Thank you! ^_^ -really need to atempt another splice-

Anyone wanna comment on my first splice?

June 27th, 2007, 1:52 PM
Well, since these are the first sprites youve ever done, i wont attack you for the recolours, but i sugggest you read up on some tutorials and learn some new techniques.

June 27th, 2007, 2:39 PM
Allright. May I ask which tutorials do you suggest?

June 28th, 2007, 6:44 AM
Maybe the one by the rules? I think it's stickied on the very top of the "pixel art" topic

June 28th, 2007, 10:50 AM
Alright. I'll check it out. Thanks

June 28th, 2007, 5:26 PM
No prob.... Did you happen to edit the Trainer sprite? it looks better than it did before!

June 28th, 2007, 9:40 PM
I like ralts' evolution did you invert the colors to make it?

June 29th, 2007, 10:20 AM
Pkmn: Which trainers?

Rumor: Nope. I picked up random pallettes which happened to be dark purple and blue [I have few in my files] and did it. lol

June 29th, 2007, 10:50 AM
As Desgardes said, maybe different kinds.
But now you've gotten into splicing, it's pretty nice.
I love you recolors, you have a knack for picking palettes out, and you don't seem to forget much, no different colored outlines, nothing is left out from being recolored.
Maybe now you should start adding stuff when you recolors. You know, add stripes, or spots, or anything that changes the color of the fur when you recolor/splice. It's a little harder, but you can do it.
I'm looking forward to the next update!

Keep up the good work with your spriting just always try to add some black to the outline of some of your recolors.

July 2nd, 2007, 4:19 PM
Thanks, everyone! I have an update!


someone requested this. they gave me list of theur favorite pokemon and colors. I was bored so I picked few out and did this. I'm loving this. Yeah I know, Growlite isn't recolored fully, one of their favorite colors was orange so I left it in. It was perfect shade.


Someone asked for dark Espeon with lavendar gem so it totally inspired me to do this. I think I did rather well.

my first color swap. I love this, espically ice type-looking pokemon [forgot name]Any feedback on this is thanked for.

I got bored one day and picked out few pokemon and did this. I wanted to simplify them. took me an hour to do this. I had to do black outline then recolor shading into one color. I'm not pleased with Mudkip. I may redo it.

my first TC above was made with temple. this was made completely scratch [expect for sprites and background] I'm not liking how I did it. oh well

I wanted to make slightly bigger TC with circle slots so I made this. I think I did better on this than other one ^^

Again I got bored and made this,with diamond slots. I like this too, took me 15 minutes to make.

I'm loving this too, I wanted to aim for baby pokemon TC, I think I achieved that look, I'm not sure. Yeah, Trainer look cluttered, I know. lol

I got bored and did this, I didn't transplant background I know, ignore it. I'm hating how I placed pokemon.

I love this, I wanted to do Kon sisters [my OCs] as pokemon trainers. I love it.

My older brother and I were talking about pokemon one day, I had an idea of this so I made this. I'm brunette one with Ninetales behind me. Yea, it's clothing and colors I would wear if I was her. Yeah, my hair's same length and volume. My older brother is black-haired one. Yeah, his hair's that way. Why do he have Jigglypuff with him you ask? Well, Ninetales is my favorite pokemon and Jigglypuff's his so that's why.


Second splice. this one took me a hour and half to make. ears is Glaceon and colors is Flareon. Tail is Espeon and colors is Umbreon. Body is Eevee, head colors is Jolteon, neck colors is Vaporeon, belly/legs colors is Leafeon. I know I need to improve, please give me lot of feedback on this. I'm not liking it.

A trainer card I had an idea that was floating around for two weeks before I made this. took me 15 minutes. I'm liking this but I'll accpect feedback for this.

And that's my update. Sorry for not transplanting most of images. I'm considering starting a TC shop. Should I?

Spriting man, not spirting...
And I don't think it's spriting either, just sprite-making, or sprite-editing.

Pardon me. it is Spriting and your post is useless to me. Please do comment on my sprites. otherwise you're no help to me...epect for reviving my topic..=^.^=


Once again, another request from a friend. I think I finally found out the secret to recoloring the flames.....variey the shades lol

I forgot to transplantify this one lol well I took up Astral's advice, did 1 stripe different color from other stripes and did dither colors on belly and 1 spot. I'm loving it!

I know, the shell's supposed to be normal but I couldn't ressit and did it black. anyways, my splice of pikachu and squirtle. I'm loving this, I think I did well with splice, expically ears and head! Compare this with different splices I did and you cansee I improved a bit lol

Another request. I know I didn't do flame on Charizard too well forgive me. I'm loving this recolors, espically the Rapidash ^^

A splice between Mew and Artcuine [sp?] I named this Mecuni! I know, lot of errors, actually this is my first time adding wings onto someone. ^^; Please point out errors and how I can improve.


July 7th, 2007, 8:59 AM
hmm finally a few that are actually real sprites....
Most of these are simply recoloring. i never liked recoloring a whole lot, but i suppose they looked pretty good either way. nevertheless, ifd youre going to call this spriting, try to do some more real sprites. i think they could turn out pretty cool after a little more practice.

July 7th, 2007, 9:40 AM
Thank you! I can try to do real sprites. Any suggestions for that? ^^;

July 15th, 2007, 10:23 AM
I believe a month hasn't passed. I apologize for double post...


Above was an image I found online, it asked for no credits and I was bored so I recolored this ^^; I apologize if I'm supposed to credit it

Another site, I found this and decided to recolor. I forgot where it came from ^^; I'm not sure about shades of blue I chose ^^;

A WIP I'm working on. I want to finish it then animate it. Any tips please? Heh

Another WIP, I'm thinking about doung a series of dark-colored fire pokemon. Should I? Any tips please? lol

I opened a request shop on another forum, This was first order I got. Hard one but I managed. Any tips would be loved. I hate the headpiece.

Second order was a Trainer Card, It was easiest order I had, finished it. I hate the hearts. Oh well heh

A order for orange/green/dark orange Clizard [sp?] I did it pretty fast heh

Someone asked for three. I hate them, Hardest I ever did. I'm not sure about Ninetales. Oh well.....Tips would be loved

I hated that order, I had to do it anyway. I'm not sure if I like this. I had to chop Butterfly's lower wings off.....Oh well Tips would be loved
A recolor and pokeball. It's snuuball, I know it's blue becausae I wanted blue to reflect the spots on Snuubbull's body lol I'm loving it. as for ninetales, I hate it. It look funky. Oh well

One of hard orders I had. A splice of Charmader and Horsea. Please give me lot of tips for this, I'm hating this.

Someone ordered this, I love this, espically the ears lol it actually completes my pika ball line lol ^^

Any suggestions would be loved. ^^

July 15th, 2007, 11:17 AM

July 16th, 2007, 3:27 PM
Nice sprites, recolors are simple, and I like yours a lot.

July 16th, 2007, 3:30 PM
For just starting out, you're pretty good! Keep up the good work! I also like your Eevee recolor!

July 16th, 2007, 4:03 PM

Some of the color choices don't work well, and some of them don't look like Pokemon themed.. =\

July 22nd, 2007, 5:40 PM

May I ask which color schemes? I don't care for pokemon themed, I recolor them to my likes ^^;
