    Also, Summer and Autumn will look more intimidating; a cold snake is a listless snake, and I didn't really have any ideas for the Spring version's expression.
    Heh, it looks bored. Mebbe give it large fangs and an angled head to make it hostile.

      I'm not trying to make either of these look hostile; snakes usually hibernate in the winter, so a snake that's active during the winter would be understandably pathetic. The Spring version isn't up to full power, as its flower hasn't blossomed, so I was trying to reflect that. Have it protecting its tail, etc.

      I have been thinking about fangs, though. Maybe small ones for Spring, large ones for Summer, moderate ones for Autumn. I also wanted each one to have an interesting feature other than the color scheme and tail, but I haven't thought of what it could be yet. I'm far from done, in any case, and I'm going to fix the Spring version's too-light-too-soft colors after looking into B/W sprites some more.

        BW Sprites seem to have more contrasting shades and more darker outlines from what I can tell. O_O
        Anyways:

        Name: Bambear
        Type: Fighting
        Pokedex: Bambear is constantly training itself in the wild to become stronger, it is also a popular pokemon, because of its appearance.
        Abilities: Guts
        Description: A cute, small panda with a belt on.
        EDIT: Removed highlights


        My smallest sprite ever made!!! Woooot!
        .................and prolly my worst, lol... xD

        Anyways, feel free to pimp it.

          True, the Spring Snakeason should have some black outline. There's a lot of black outline in the B/W style.

            IMO bambear should be fighting/grass (bamboo+bear) I mean bamboo is the only thing they eat, it would effect them sooner or later :/ Hey! maybe it could have a bamboo staff

                The next evolutions are meant to have bamboo staffs. Also it's Pokemon so it doesn't necessarily have to have the exact characteristics of the real animal e.g. Sea Horses don't breathe fire. xD

                Anyways, refer to the first page of the thread for more info on this Poke. I believe it's under Karpman's suggested idea bit.

                  I noticed the black outline thing... but I really don't see a correlation between the different instances in which it's used. So, I'm still looking into it.

                    There are sprite comparisons between the generations here. Might help.

                        As a rule of thumb, sprites in the Gen V style use a black and darker outline colours in greater amounts. The general outline colouring and shading in general also differs from Gen IV style. Often there's less use of shading in general.

                          Even though i'm not a creator,even though they are pretty nice designs,they are also too large. Compare them with size of other sprites.
                          It's around the size of Reshiram,Zekrom or Kyurem,and its tangled up,making it even bigger than Wailord when "unknotted".

                          It's a forest guardian that pities how bad a type Grass is, so it gets moves to help out Grass-types, but is smart enough not to be Grass-type itself. The appearance is simply mimicry to hide from humans.

                            It's not 'tangled up', it's coiled. XD

                            I don't know why, but the idea of a tangled up snake is hilarious. Anyway, that's the only snake pose that won't make it look like an existing Pokemon, as it hasn't been used since the original games. In regard to the size, it takes up about the same space as tnguye3's Swampike. Uncoiled, my Snakeason WOULD be longer than Wailord's sprite, but that doesn't mean anything; Wailord is forty-seven feet long, while Azurill is eight inches tall.



                            Pokemon come in such different sizes that it would be impossible to accurately depict with sprites like these. I would say that my Snakeason is around thirty feet long, which is how big the type of snake I based it on gets. If anyone thinks its too big for a standalone species, they can make a baby form or something.

                              Well, for blaydyte, it looks good as it is. So maybe that could be a final sprite and Ice could edit the description so the tail-attached to body thing is gone. And the horn not suitable for combat thing. The horn looks too epic.

                                    IMO the sprites are good, just that the dithering on bunpaw's belly seems awkward (as in not curved enough) and the shading on Jackapaw's left leg (our right) makes his leg look weird as in bent in the wrong way.

                                    Other than that it looks great.

                                    I also think this hasn't been given enough attention? These are realy good IMO.

                                      Dithering is not my specialty. >.> And I was using Dageki as reference, but I tried fixing those problems.





                                      As for Poketta's, the fur ends on the rear and its front right arm (our left) look odd to me on the wombat. Fisey doesn't look like it has enough contrast between colors, same with Flaroo, but I'm rather fond of how the latter looks.

                                      EDIT: photobucket takes forever to update new pics..... -.-

                                        Yeah I agree with what you said about Poketta's sprites. I also prefer his GCS version of Fisey as it looks cuter imo.
                                        Anyways, about your sprites I also realised you do a lot of dotting especially on your Jackapaw. His paws and feet have this unfinished feel of outline on him but that's just my opinion.

                                        Anyways what's Dageki? O_o
                                        The one I know is an online Polish shop selling Japanese goods.... xD

                                        Continuing work on that vampire flamingo (Vamingo?). I think it's turning out nicely.



                                        Also I thought I would throw out this other sprite I'd fiddling with even though it's not based on anyone's ideas. I'd thought I'd make some kind of ghostly seed, or something, one that could evolve into some kind of ghostly tree. Or maybe a shrubbery.

                                          Those look really nice, Scarf. I especially like the ghost seed. It looks adorable. xD

                                          Okay so, comparison.





                                          Which is better?

                                          They are great, but I have said that for now we should concentrate on the concepts we've got on the first post before adding more and more ideas.

                                          As for Poketta's, the fur ends on the rear and its front right arm (our left) look odd to me on the wombat. Fisey doesn't look like it has enough contrast between colors, same with Flaroo, but I'm rather fond of how the latter looks. :)

                                          EDIT: photobucket takes forever to update new pics..... -.-
                                          Added.

                                          Also I thought I would throw out this other sprite I'd fiddling with even though it's not based on anyone's ideas. I'd thought I'd make some kind of ghostly seed, or something, one that could evolve into some kind of ghostly tree. Or maybe a shrubbery.




                                          Dageki's one of the new Gen V pokemon.
                                          I've added Vamingo/Flamincula to the first post, though for now I'll omit the seed dude for reasons mentioned before.

                                          Okay, wait, can we just make sprite up on the spot or do we have to use ideas by other members in the first post?

                                          For now, we're using ideas posted in the first post. Most of them are pretty vague though, so you'll have quite a bit of creative freedom. :D
