    So, I am trying to create a FanGame, and are in debate whether to try either having pictures for my Fakes, or go traditional and try out pixels instead. If anyone's got anything to say, especially critically, I would love to hear it :D

    Starters:
    Spoiler:


    Tenki, Grass Starter. Dreams of being a Super Hero one day.


    Tiskoon, The Sidekick. Whenever troubles arise, they flock to the source to settle disputes.


    Smokit, Fire Starter. It's tail emits smoke every now and then. People sneeze from it too.


    Mysticore, Heir of the Clouds. Wherever they fly, clouds are created. People wish upon these clouds for rain.


    Botappa, Water Starter. Staring at it's goofy look will cause problems.


    First Route Staples:
    Spoiler:


    Furral, Generic Rodent. Not very high in percentages, but it's fur makes great, comfy shorts though.


    Kardeenal, Common Bird. They like to wake people up in the morning, like it or not.


    Fairly Early in-game:
    Spoiler:


    Shleep, Zzz...


    Random, One-Stagers:
    Spoiler:


    Bisnow, Buffalo, or Bison? Untrue to common belief, they can actually get cold, despite their Ice-Typing.


    Late-Game Loungers:
    Spoiler:


    Basalist, Cooked Frog Legs. Their mask is constantly changing form from the heat of the lava they live in.


    Scholune, Gentleman Scholar. Their noses are proportional in length to their intelligence.


    Dufessor, Intelligence at its finest. While praised for their genius understanding of the world around them, they still hesitate around woman.



    Also, I'm sorry if these look kinda bad, so here's a spider I hope you'll like

    Spider, Rainbow Type. Lives in the corner of houses, and smiles all day.

    And, umm, I'll try to update this occasionally. Or when I feel like it.

      The starters are kinda messy, but the designs are nice!

      Edit: That forth piece looks the best!

        Thanks Joey :D
        If you mean that the lines were weird, I ended up just leaving them as black solid lines now.

        As per rules state, I removed the 4th piece, but added in 2 more Fakes.

          Is the spider complete? Because it doesn't really look like it for me, and it seems you haven't been putting a lot of thought into the design. Not sure what Rainbow-type is too.

          The other sprites, however, are good. A lot of stuff can be done, but I think you're headed the right direction.

            haha, the spider was a diversion >:D

            but anyway, thanks for the comment! I'm trying to make at least some more before I update the OP. And is there any suggestions as to what I can do to make them better?

              I have no idea why I thought the Spider was real. I can never tell if people are serious these days. Jokes on you though, I'm going to edit it and make it look amazing.

              What you could do is have smoother outlining, also the majority of the outline is black when it could be a darker base colour especially the first route staples. And sometimes the outline, like the fire starter, needs to have some more rounded edges especially the tail.

                Finally, someone else that does this! Line shading is my least favorite part, so I procrastinate with it. :D

                          I am super duperly sorry in advance if this sounds mean or anything like that.

                          Okay looking at the starters...

                          The designs are a little too plain, they need a little more oomph, but they are original. Your colour choice is good, but the red on the fire starter is really bothering me for some reason. The rest of this crit for the starters will be in this picture below so I can easily explain it. Apologies for any spelling mistakes in the picture, I just made it in Paint, which, unfortunately, doesn't have spell check.

                          Spoiler:

                          Okay maybe making the words that big and my choice of font were not the best idea.


                          You don't have a problem with this (Outline dithering) on your other sprites, because you never finished the outline shading. It's best to showcase your sprites when they are 100% finished, or at least write "WIP" underneath so people won't mistaken it for a finished sprite.

                          Looking at your other Pokemon, the shading is good, the colours are also good! You Pinochio one looks more like a Plague Mask that doctors used to wear than a lying puppet, so maybe you can make it a Dark Type, by the looks of it? Your lines are still a bit shaky, but they have gotten better.

                          You're last update is a big improvement, and you really have some potential Just keep practicing, don't stop what you're doing, and you will get better! Everyone starts somewhere! You're Pokemon are very original and I'm excited to see more! C:My favorite would have to be a Pinocchio, it's a cool design and look like it's the most well-made.

                            Definitely liking that post :D
                            I have to admit that I'm horrible at shading, but that little tutorial you wrote is definitely great at explaining my flaws. I'll work on that "dithering" thing you mentioned. At first, I always thought that official sprites used dithering at the most random places, but that could have just been my imagination

                            And yeah, the starters are really crappy, and were literally my first attempts at spriting. I'll see if I can try to remake them later! I'll totally used that info you gave me to start on better shading!

                              After some thought, I tried revising my current fakes with better line shading, but ended up with a slightly better, but not perfect or even noteworthy, designs:

                              I'm actually really proud of thie one


                              This one was rather messy, or really dark


                              added line shading to this one

                                  I had no idea what a plague doctor looked like, but after I looked it up it seemd to fit with what I had planned for his evo to look like anyway :D



                                  So here's Dufessor, a great guy that can calculate 10-digit multiplication, knows over 25 languages, and understands the plot in Inception.
                                  His one flaw is that he still doesn't know how to talk to girls.

                                    Not bad!

                                    First of all,the nose's shading can be better.
                                    Don't put that black colours for something like eyes or whatever, I think it can work better with a dark grey, also, put a little anti aliasing in his eyes.
                                    Hovewer, I think the fingers looks too much like human fingers.
                                    One last thing, the shading is missing under his head.

                                      Ah, gotcha on the nose. For some reason it's like I forget to do things, then I just end up posting it without realizing what I did wrong :D

                                      The eyes are also supposed to be hollow, but I can see that using super-black is giving it a weird look. I'll touch it up with grey instead.

                                      The hands are supposed to be more squared off at the ends of each finger, but pixeling it to look squared off is really hard since the workspace is so small. This is what it was supposed to look like:

                                      And thanks for the comments. They're a big help for a new guy like me

                                        These new sprites show amazing improvement. Keep it up. :D

                                        I love the simple witch-doctor idea. It's just so clean and simple other than most complicated designs with the witch-doctor idea.

                                          Fixing up the smoothness on the shading of the nose/face and adding some AA to the eyes would definitely improve the look. However, I think the fingers are fine. I mean, look at Machop's evo line. They basically have humanoid hands. So it's not unheard of.

                                            Ah, well I wasn't going to alter it anyway haha :D

                                            And yeah, the face is definititely a mess, and I'll give him a "nose job" later.
                                            Also, got the Fire starter's final evo done. 128x128 on accident though...


                                            Mysticore spend their time flying around in the layer of clouds. The heat they generate alter the many clouds they pass through, forming many interesting shapes. Fire/Flying

                                              Eh, this is kind of an awkward update...
                                              but I didn't want it to disappear off the radar, so here's a 96x96 version of Mysticore, which I beleive is the correct size for the sprites found in Black and White.

                                              I also fixed up the weird legs the previous version had
