This thread is exactly what it looks like, a place for you ask someone to make something for you. It works like any other request thread. Just remember a couple of things:
  • Only pixel art related requests, please. Non-pixel art requests should be made in the Official Request Thread in the Art Gallery.
  • No excessive bumping. eg. if your request hasn't been taken up wait at least a day or so before asking again.
  • When you take someone's request or finish a request let them know here or through VM/PM.
  • Be as clear as you can about what you're requesting.
  • Be nice.
All the regular rules apply.

(Shops in Pixel Projects are still okay, in case anyone was wondering.)

I really, really, really hope this doesn't turn into a one stop shop for lazy hackers.
I tried and failed that should be enough for u BEN!
not everyone is a great hacker like u (if u r one).
thats what this thread is for, er, how should i put it, incapable hackers, people who want too make sprites but cant.
Hey, play nice :|

Everyone is welcome to post requests, but if too many outrageous requests (like asking for someone to make 100+ sprites) start pouring in I'll consider adding some kind of limit on how big a request someone can make. For now I'm giving everyone the benefit of the doubt and hoping people will use their common sense.

Does anybody have all the maps from HGSS (or at least, some of the indoor maps) ripped? I really need it, but it's not THAT urgent.

EDIT: Made it simpler. I don't need custom or animated, though. Like ripping the maps using A-Map for HGSS.

I'm certain it's not every single HGSS map, but Bulbapedia have a great deal of Johto's maps in Generation 4 style. Just search for your desired map (e.g, Mahogany Town).

Since my game will have seasons i wanted to ask if anyone could put this tile with snow
I would love to help you, trinity, but I'm afraid there is no tile in this post. >:

It's work with pixels.

So i think this can be asked here.
Yes, it can since tiles are made with pixels and it's not some kind of emulation/game development question like how to insert the tiles.

You know Fakemons are really hard to do and are really time consuming. I think you asked for a bit to much :S

that just explains why i can't do it.
srry for rushing, im a kinda impatient guy,plz answer my request,anybody, i'd really appreciate it if they were made, whoever makes them will get credit and may use them as he/she wishes.

you dont have to do them all at once, take your times.

Im just going to throw out my stand point on this thread. But this looks like its going to turn into one of these threads where we are going to get just rom hackers/game devolopers asking to do fakemon and only a few pixel artists around here can do fakemon to an exceptional level, and as far as I know they don't do requests. If you are going to make fakemon for your hack/game here are 2 of the best options:

1. Learn to sprite yourself: This is always the best thing to learn if you have the time, patience, and effort, I can say right now that you will be better then most of the spriting community around here. Just read up a few tutorials and that would just help, sure it might take a few minutes of your time but it is worth it. Even if you aren't artist you can become better artistically through pixel art Myself and a few other names in pixel art weren't always artistic like both former PA mods Amachi and Fox. They turned out to be lovley pixel artists with time, patience, and effort they got to the pixelated greatness they were at. Like I said this is always the best option.

2. Hire a pixel artists: Now really if all else fails you should try looking to hire someone to pixel for you. Im just putting this out there, it is difficult to find a good pixel artist that is willing to work for your hack/game. And if you do find one you really want to work with their time schedule and not to rush them. Pixel artists DO NOT like to be rushed, because like the saying goes "you cant rush art". Again its my own opinion easier to learn to sprite yourself then hiring someone to sprite for you but if you do you want to work with them.

Anyways most pixel artists around here probably wont do small requests just because of our schedules/uninspired/committed to a hack/game. Im just putting down my opinion on this thread. I honestly see it as a flood of requests coming in and a lot of disappointed people who never got their request answered. Too bad everybody will just go and tl;dr this.

Agreed with Chibi Robo.
I don't think anyone else will request something else instead of something for their Pokémon rom hack or game. For my point of view, this might turn up to be what Chibi said,a place for rom hackers/game makers to request sprites, or just another Pixel Art showcase thread where people can get constructive criticism on their sprites and/or a Rom Hack/Game Making resource thread.. The simplest thing I can probably see being requested is a simple overworld or edit/recolour/fusion/whatever of a sprite.

I'm quite in agreement with all of Chibi Robo's points. I also might add that if it's small enough to request here, it's small enough that the requester should be able to learn to do it themselves, not that it usually turns out that way, though.

I do think the best thing is to just see how it goes for a while, but I'm inclined to think that this thread isn't really helping anyone.

I understand everyone's concerns. It may well be that this thread devolves into a place where many/most/all requests go unanswered because they are too numerous/too time consuming/too difficult to get people to fulfill them. I am, however, still optimistic that some good will come of this thread. It if seems like that isn't happening and that this thread is becoming a hindrance (instead of merely remaining neutral) to Pixel Art then it might have to go the way of the dinosaurs.

Its not only that, people might start to rely on this for their hacks/games or whatnot. Instead of just learning on how to develop spriting skills they rely on a thread to get they're work done artistically. That in my opinion is not a good message to be sending to upcoming pixel artists. That you don't need to learn how to sprite when you can just request something in this thread here and all your troubles will melt away. This isn't the only thing that has been bothering me, the recent exception about pixel art shops has had me worrying about where is pixel art coming also. I don't want to offend anybody but I just want pixel art to be a unique area in pc with unique and fantastic pieces of pixel art. Not just repetitive fusions or recolors. I might be getting off topic but Im just stating some of my concerns in the pa section. Back onto topic, request threads are really just big letdowns and it promotes laziness in the pixel art section. Like I said before, it is the best option to learn how to pixel yourself and not rely on others to do it for you. I really hope what I wrote out is really taken into consideration.

funny how there is no really request here yet.

And to anyone who thinks that this will become a one stop shop for hackers and game devolopers, bleh. :P. People could say that that request cant be done ect.

Though this may turn out like the graphics request thread.
I still have hopes for this thread, im sure itll create some good to some.

And for you saying this thread will make people not learn how to sprite themselfs, if they really want to they can learn themselfs, :)
And some people some people just dont have the talent no matter how much they practice, everyone is good at their own things.
------------------------------------------------
I might post a request here when I figure out some stuff. :)
