OK, you guys know me as a sprite critic, well guess what, I started off as a spriter called English Avatarman. I'm not that good but you can say I'm terrible as long as you have a reason, give me advice, I'll try to update 5 days a week. I do except fusion suggestions.

Here are some I've done recently
A classic I did to get me back in the spriting mood (Peeveechu). (http://img234.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mix2peeveechuef4.png)
Hopefully part of a two part set (Snorskull). (http://img65.imageshack.us/my.php?image=mix3snorskulllq4.png) Snorskull edit (http://www.imagehosting.us/index.php?action=show&ident=1715340)
A Sarbleye halow'een mask (http://img65.imageshack.us/my.php?image=untitledhi3.png)
A horible Quillava Scratch (http://img238.imageshack.us/my.php?image=quilavaof3.png)
Here's an old one (Grimnea) (http://www.imagehosting.us/index.php?action=show&ident=1715955)

More up tommorow.

It looks as though your sprites are mostly scratch-based, and the fusions are pretty good. However, the Snorskull looks like it has a bit too much shading (try halftone maybe) and its face looks a little polygonal (not very curved corners). The Sableye mask looks very uneven, but that could be fixed pretty easily. And the Quilava scratch is pretty bad, but you said that yourself, so meh.

It took me like five minutes to get the title. xD

The pages load so slowly, so...

I like the Pikavee, but something about it makes it look too.... old. Do you know what I mean? Also, the mask's shading is kinda bad. Anyways, you aren't that bad of a spriter. ^^

Yep, the new critic sprites back, sorry but you do spam a little when c&c'in...

Now onto what I think, the fusion isn't bad, although the shading could do with a little work.

The 2nd ones eyes are too completely different colours, the outline is a little shaky too.

The 3rd one, the outline is shaky and the eyes don't seem right.

The last one is too thin in places.

Oh, Anyway they're not both eyes. Look at a Duskull sprite, anyway, what do you think of the edit (3rd true post)
I need suggestions people!

Better on the shading, its like the G/S/C style, a bit at least.

Suggests on fusions: Altaria and Pikachu, Azumarill and Pidgeoto.

I tried Azumarill/Pidgeotto and it looks like a blue potato, and I've tried Dusclops/Glacie and it's too dark.

On the First one the head dosen't look right to me, I'm not sure why. I think you need to shade in the head a bit more, Good to see someone scratching bits on a fusion.
For the second one: even though the eyes are like that on a duskull, I would still colour them in because on a Duskull sprite the eyes are slightly on the other side of its head but on your sprite there not.
On the Quilava scratch make the head smaller or make the body bigger.
The rest are good too.

The Grimnea is really good IMO. I looks like a Cacnea was made of Chocolate and then it melted. Really good effects.

Grimnea is the best you've made, but your spriting shows promise.
