    I voted for legendarypokemon because in my opinion, it flows more. While I do think the outlines are a bit strange at some points, I like the ideas you came up with, and it looks realistic. mzmingles is pretty cute (IDK XD I thought so), but it doesn't flow as well, and looks a bit muddled, and some parts look a bit forced. A good attempt by both of you though.

      If mzmingle's had a more consistent face (the mouth and eyes aligned better), it would get my vote 100%, as I like the design of the body, tail and head-fin-thing. The colours flow well and it looks reasonably cute. The face, however, is really off-putting, unfortunately.

      With regards to legendaryfusion's, everything seems to 'work', so to speak. It's more colourful, and the head-fin/'wings'/tail combo has a nice edge to it. I agree with Retribution's comment about the outlines, but on the whole a good job. (For both, that is.)

        I voted for mzmingle's sprite. Although the design wasn't as good, I feel as though the spriting was superior - for example, it followed the same pallet throughout the entire sprite. The only suggestion I would make to mzmingle's would be swapping the tail and 'head tail' around, so it would flow more.

        I love LP's design, but I'm not a fan of the chosen colours or shading. The red tail just seemed out of place, and he could have chosen to stay with the original pallet (I know Croconaw has red, but it would have looked more aesthetically pleasing with a cream or blue tail).

          mzmingle gets my vote.

          Comparing the sprites as fusions, I can't help but think of how lp's sprite is too distinctive. I mean I feel like it's just a decorated croconaw of some sort, and iirc the concept of a good fusion is a result where you blend some pokemon together, making a new one that is difficult to tell apart but balanced as a sprite itself. The outlining in lp's sprite is also in bad shape, and the only flaws I currently see in mzmingle's sprite are the bad attachment of the tail/face alignment, but no lining flaws. I don't really get to whine about how colorful the sprite is, given the pokemon each one of them went and fused.

          So by thin advantage, mzmingle's sprite is a better fusion, always imo. Good luck to both of you either way!

            I voted for mzmingle, it just has to flow a bit better.
            legendarypokemons was a good fusion but really looked like a croconaw with some extra parts added.
            mzmingles was like a new pokemon

              My vote goes to legendarypokemon's sprite due to the fact that it has more flow (even though it's basically a Croconaw with extra parts as Ciax stated) than the other one. However they are both well made IMO

                Voted for mzmingle because of the great consistency. In legendarypokemon's sprite, the outlines went all messed up like Mudkip's head part and Wartortle's tail has gone all black and jagged outlines. Although legendarypokemon's concept is generic and cool looking, mzmingle's is unique. Also I don't get why it has one arm.
