    And Finally a Fusion of Onix and Weedle

    I know they aren't that good but, come on, the last time I tried anything like this I was 10 or 11 and I haven't tried anything like it since.
    Hmm.... I like the Weedle and Onix one a lot, and the rest aren't too bad, but could improve.
    Starting with the Ash one. Firstly, everything seems a bit disproportionate in comparison to normal sprites. Second, the arm sleeves seem to just fade into the arm. Also, the sleeves should be a couple pixels or so wider so it doesn't look like he's wearing spandex.Third, you need to improve your shading a bit. The pallette could be better too, if you really wanted to get nitpicky.

    Now for the first fusion. I don't have any complaints here, other than the fact that the head seems kinda rushed. Try to splice them a bit better, because at the moment it doesn't really flow.

    The next one looks good too, but on one of the fins there appears to be a rather big black line connecting to the body on the lower left.

    I know that's a lot of stuff, but don't get too down on yourself. Keep it up and these sprites will improve.
    I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
    Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
    I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
    But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
    So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.
