I'd say your very talented! Good revamps, shading is done well and you've revamped everything that needs to be. Fakemon, that water starter is really cute!

On your pixel art you've put Subomi but the picture is of one of your mixes :)

.:Tom~Nook:.
24th October 2006, 4:20 PM
Woops >.<
Well, here's my Subomi, silly me, must;ve forgot to Paste the link =P

And thanks much for the comment ^_^

Aw, he's cute! I can't really think of anything to c+c you on at the moment, although I think you should try Chao and other sprites now :D

.:Tom~Nook:.
24th October 2006, 4:26 PM
I've tried Chao before, they were a lil too simple and boring for me =P

Anyways:

Just a bit of fun

Pretty good. a little bit of fine tuning is needed on everything though. keep it up :)

.:Tom~Nook:.
24th October 2006, 5:14 PM
Thanks, mind telling me what I could tweek?

Anyways, just two overworlds.

Everything seems really nice. Although, if I were have to give a piece of advice it would be not to over-dither. It is possible to make sprites nice (or even nicer in some cases) without too much visible dithering. You could also follow the official style a bit when it comes to the revamps, but it isn't so necessary as they look rather well done. But I must say, you have an excellent choice of palettes, especially the one with the brick wall.
All in all, keep up the good work.~

.:Tom~Nook:.
25th October 2006, 2:17 PM
Thanks dude =D

I did try not to dither once, and to make the sprites bigger, but it turned out crap
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/Zubat.png
See, althouigh i generally like the shading.

EDIT: Why is it my threads always die this early on? -_-;

Anyways, something else for ya all.
These were originally going to be saved till I posted the comic itself, but I might aswell show you anyways.

Basically, I;m making a completely hand pixeled comic (Apart from the text, of course) I won't reviel anymore as of yet, but I will show you the style I made for the characters.

My character

A scene advertising the special Pokemon issue.

Every things great, The revamps look perfect, the water starter is really cute and the mixes are really good too.
Keep up the fantastic work!

.:Tom~Nook:.
25th October 2006, 5:08 PM
Haha, thanks dude =D

Anyways, just a banner to advertise my sprite thread =P
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/Spritethreadbanner.png

Chaotic Pink
25th October 2006, 5:53 PM
The overworlds look a little small in my opinion. Nice little advertising banner, although that sprite/bear with axe thing is really creeping me out!

.:Tom~Nook:.
25th October 2006, 6:05 PM
It''s because Tom Nook is really an evil Racoon, he acts all innocent, but when night falls he's out chopping down trees, and with any luck, killing Truffles.
If you've never played AC:WW then ignore that =P

Thanks for the comments =P

Shroomish can't be too small as it;s a pixel or so bigger than Coronis' Bulbasaur OW, Hariyama...I';m not so sure about, haven;t measured him up yet >.<

Anyways, thanks again

True =/

Anyways, a few fun things that were made for a website I once made:

The mascot: (Based on a joke my friend made once)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/klemtron.png

Three characters who were also gonna be mascots. (A parody of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/wannabeathf.png

And Fat Sam's QOTW (My friend Sam generally says a lot of stupid things, they really needed to be written down XD)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/Fatsambanner.png

All are fully scratch, like most of my work =D

25th October 2006, 10:24 PM
Ahh, you're briliant. I like your ideas and stye, only I agree with ShadowP that dithering is good only untill you overdo it or use it in the wrong spots. Like with your Hunger Force parody trio, the dithering is perfect for the broccoli's leafs becuase of their appearance and texture; round and coarse. But with the stalk of the same character and the orange, the texture is much more smooth and reflective and should be given straight highlights and shodows that emphasise those properties.

Keeping your sprites small is a good idea, unless you're going to use dithering on it.
[Link] (http://ic1.deviantart.com/fs5/f/2005/123/2/8/old.gif) or http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pkrs011.gif
See how dithering is used in the large one but "cell" shading is used in the smaller, Pokemon one?

.:Tom~Nook:.
25th October 2006, 10:35 PM
I know a lot about dithering. I dislike shading the wya most of the Pokemon are shaded, as it never turns out right when I try it =P The Orange one is based on a battered Meat ball 9We have them in Britian >.<) I sued dithering as the texture of a battered meatball is very crumbley.

When doing pokemon sprites, I do try and steer away from dithering, the hunger force parody are quite old =/ But I feel the dithering works on most of my pieces.

Thanks very much for the critique, as it's giving me a better look at my techniques =D

Although to be fair, quite a few Pokemon offical sprites contain a lot of dithering.

Anyways, quite an old piece, a tribute to Earthbound Zero on the NES.

...Can I build you a shrine? <33

Love them. ^^ I think your shading is fine! It's your own style, which makes your sprites unique. X3

.:Tom~Nook:.
25th October 2006, 11:56 PM
=^_^= Haha, I'd love a shrine =P

Thanks dearly for the comment =D

Anyways, this was just a bit of fun, it's Chardude, the teenage Charmander thing 0_o
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/Chardude.png

And a half arsed attempt at baby Chimecho

Togepi has nogender, kecleon's outline is horrid to be pro, and that is coronis's munchlax's sprite. You are an idiot if you think those can be real.

The chimecho pre-evo looks cool. I think that you shouldn't put all the dark shadeing by the black dot on it's cheek though. Looks like a blobish kind of thing with the dark shadeing around it.

The charmeleon dude looks odd. But I can't crit it because it doesn't have really any flaws that I can find.

26th October 2006, 12:25 AM
What an idiot that dude is. He left and deleted his post and made you multi-post. :o

Pretty awesome? I especially like the Grimer/Kingler mix.

Mind looking at my sprites. I don't have a thread on Serebii so I'll post a link to another forum. Most of the other N-Parody authors went there at some point so I think you should be fairly familiar with it. Anyway, http://z9.invisionfree.com/Shpam_Man_Forums/index.php?showtopic=360&st=0&#last

.:Tom~Nook:.
26th October 2006, 8:47 PM
Thanks dude, but I'm pretty sure it;s against the rules to direct link a forum in a post =/

And for the record, I've never read much of Sponge's comic, never mind joined the forum ^^;

26th October 2006, 11:49 PM
Ahhh. :o

I multi posted right after I complained about that person multi-posting.

Well, this post is about the button in your siggy. I have been wondering of he is on a mail box or an axe. If it is a mail box, then it looks flat. Also, you spelt thread, tread. I think that was done on purpose though.

.:Tom~Nook:.
26th October 2006, 11:50 PM
It's an axe =P

It originally had an H in there, but it got erased when i was messing around with it, though the Tread looks better =P

Thanks for the comment.

At the risk of sounding impatient, but I must ask, did you look at the sprites, or would you prefer I make a Serebii thread?

.:Tom~Nook:.
28th October 2006, 12:43 AM
I would prefer you make a SPPF thread, saves me joining upto another forum to leave a comment =D

Anyways all, just a few small things today
firstly, a banner ad thingy for my comic, N-Capable! (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=163534) Feel free to check it out, by clicking the bold text in this post =D
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/matt-crowe/ncapablebanner.png
Done in the space of 5-10 minutes, so deffinately not one of my better works.

And to end this post, a fakemon I made a few weeks ago, it's fire / water, I'll explain why when i post more Fakes.

Rightio guys, a real treat for you this post, that's right, my attempt at a Green version Sceptile!

I feel I captured the crapness, yet resemblance that the Green version sprites portray quite well :>

Manetric
29th October 2006, 10:05 AM
They are quite good but I don't like the 1st 2 mixes. At 1st first glance the 1st one looks like an ordanary Tauros and the 2nd one, thew top of the claw isn't done.

.:Tom~Nook:.
29th October 2006, 2:06 PM
Thank you all!
K-os, glad you liked 'em
~milotic~ the kingler / Muk is my favorite mix, thanks for enjoying it ^-^
manetric: Thanks, the claw was only half slimed because I wanted it to be, I rarely leave a sprite half finised.

29th October 2006, 2:20 PM
You should make something that involves Crazy Redd fighting Nook.

Manetric
29th October 2006, 2:29 PM
Are the revamps D/P or R/S?

.:Tom~Nook:.
29th October 2006, 5:17 PM
Saito: Damned good idea amigo, Nook needs to be more violent!

Manetric: Ruby and Sapphire my good sir, i revamped them before D/P came out.

Socrates With A Lobotomy
29th October 2006, 6:03 PM
And Redd should wield a fake painting while Tom Nook fights with bags of Bells.

.:Tom~Nook:.
29th October 2006, 6:19 PM
Nah, Toom Nook's gonna have his Axe or something >D

Anyways, today I got the Sceptile but in colour, this is one of my favorite pieces.

29th October 2006, 6:39 PM
I like it, but I wouldn't say it's your best. Still it's pretty hard to do something crappier than you normally do. Anyway, if you wanna see more of my sprites, the forum in my sig uses buttons I made.

I'm not sounding arrogant or impatient, am I?

Manetric
29th October 2006, 6:42 PM
Can you do all of them on a white background?

.:Tom~Nook:.
29th October 2006, 7:19 PM
Extreme devamp yellow?

Nah, Red/Green/Blue

Saito, you couldn;t be more right. It's horribly hard trying to avoid using my usual shading and style, especially when i;m aiming for a sprite style that's renowned fro being somewhat crap.

Manetric, I take it you're having problems viewing my sprites due to transparancy? Try viwwing them with firefox, that should sort it out :D
