Answering the direct question, moreso fails. They are badly c+p'd and horridly shaded, leaving the sprites to look mashed and messy. I'd suggest veiwing the sprites of the other successful members and the tutorials and improve from there.

Also, did you get permission to use the concepts?

Out of everything about your sprites, your personaility needs the most work. Nobody likes someone who insults themselves. It's obnoxious.

As to the sprites themselves, they vary hugely in quality. All the concepts you've made yourself don't seem to be based on anything, just random jumbles of shapes and colours. "Tapyro" is the best one here, but it doesn't look like any one of your other sprites, not to mention you took it from an artist without permission. The combination of these facts make me a bit wary as to your validity.

The splices are very jumbled and copy pasted, without shading even changed so the light sources come from all over the place.

Please do not call me a thief, I 100% do have permission to use the concept for Tapyro Twurm, Twurphir and Corsweet, if you don't believe me then search for them on DA. The reason Twurm and Twurphur are so different is because they were done months after I had done any spriting. But the rudest part of your comment was when you said that my own concepts were just jumbled up messes. Wtf? I have two ther, one is a WIP and is based on a hammer, and the other is based on a phantom and was really rushed, what you just said made absolutely no sense at all! Please, if you are just going to be rude and make accusations, do not post in my thread.

Please don't take my post as mindless bashing; it's constructive criticism. I never said you were a thief ; don't put words in my mouth. I said I questioned your validity because your sprite's style and quality changed so much. You never said in your OP that you actually had permission for the concepts.

I did say your Fakemon were random jumbles of shapes and colours because they actually do seem to be, especially the thing with the square head. It doesn't look like a hammer, it looks abstract. If it's a WIP, then say as such. Besides, why are you getting offended? Didn't you yourself call them "fails"? Does this imply that I have no right to do the same?

Don't post things that you've rushed. There's no point; it's like someone making a design for a car, and when someone asks why they forgot the wheels, they say "Oh, I rushed it." It's not even an excuse.

If you don't want me to post constructive criticism, then simply tell me and I'll leave. But do know that this is what this part of the forum is for.

And at what point was BynineB being rude? To any spriter looking for constructive criticism, that's pure gold there. A basis for improvement and increase in skill. If you can't handle what you want, why bother posting your sprites here anyways? Your "WIPs" are jumbled messes however. What would you expect from a "rushed" slack *** job? Perfection, if the word should be used, requires effort, time, and failure, because without it, we'd have no basis for improvement. Quit your whining and try. As Bynine mentioned, if you can't handle the truth, just ask us to stop. We will.

So him accusing me of a thief and what you just posted there wasn't being rude? I can tell you get on well with your English teacher.

Quit being immature and grow a pair would ya? Now Im being rude, when we're trying to help you, yet you persist that we're being rude. If you want us to lie, get out, as we're probably not about to. If you want to improve, listen to our so-called rudeness and follow the tutorials. If not, get out.

I agree with the two above, your concepts do appear to be random jumbles of shapes and colours. Actually go look at a hammer, if you are baseing it off a modern day one, the head should look like: http://www.psychologytoday.com/files/u107/hammer.jpg
Rather than just a block.

If you are basing it off a hammer that people used in the past, then the head should have round edges like this one: http://www.kougei.or.jp/crafts/1503/images/p1503-502.jpg

Yet neither of these are completely square like your fakemon is, I also don't understand the body of it.

Your other concept I won't even crit, because in my opinion, you stated what I thought it was yourself.

Keep trying and you'll get better.

Thanks. Hamahorn is, well, kinda like one of the round hammers, except it's head is a brick, and it's a concept from years ago when I was just a kid so I didn't want to change too much.
The body is like that because he is also a fighting type, so I wanted it to actually look it.

Here is the finished (hopefully) version of Hamahorn, which was edited a little by my friend Ayato and then edited again by me:

thehead's stilla bit too boxy, and doesn't look attached at the neck. The eyes are a bit odd too. But other than that, its much better.
