CRITIQUE THE SPRITES IN MY MOST RECENT REPLY, NOT THE ONES BELOW. THESE ARE OUTDATED!



So, my old thread has been buried and given a full funeral service, so I thought I'd make a new one.

Nothing too fancy to begin with. I did a few fusions:

Oshawott & Tyrogue.

Darmanitan & Wargle/Braviary. The stuff of nightmares...

I have...no idea. Metapod, that kissing pokemon, Illumise, Volbeat? I was in a splicing mood and got carried away. Shading is fairly poor on this sprite IMO.

Then, an electric version of the monkey trio. Idk about a name. Panshock?

As always, be critical. It helps me improve. :)

For your old thread

Oshawoot + Tyraogue is kinda cute altough i don't like the two pokemon at all.

Darminatn + Wargle (Braviary sucks >-<!!) oh god it creeps me out ._. The body and the arms look werid.

Lucario + Zoroark is cool, i just think you should make more that just copy/Paste one the arms

That thing whatever it is is cool. But weird. It makes me remember of a monster from Super Mario.

The electric monkey is kidna cute :3

I really like what I see C:

Oshawatt and Tyrogue is a really well done fusion. It's essentially what I like to call a 50-50 Fusion (50% of one Pokemon, 50% of another). It is perhaps a littttttle bit more Oshawatt than Tyrogue, but maybe that's what you were going for? Anyways, the hand on the left is a little hard to tell what's what, probably since white is a really hard colour to shade. It could use a little cleaning up just for clarity. Right now it's kind of a blob. For the other hand, it's a little strange that only one finger is highlighted, so maybe an all-or-none would work better. Like I mentioned, white is really hard to shade with, so it makes different shades very noticeable.

For Darmanitan and Braviary, I think what Rex was saying about the arms looking weird is mostly in their positioning. Generally speaking, when something has two arms, two legs, and two wings, the wings should be connected to the body at almost the same place as the shoulders. That's mostly a balance thing, and it would probably benefit your sprite a bit to move the arm to the left, closer to where the wing connects.

For Lucario and Zoroark, I'm personally a fan of mixing and matching colourschemes to keep things a little more... even? Right now it's entirely Zoroark's colourscheme, so maybe switching one of the colours for Lucario's blue? That would also help to make it look less copy-pasted.

With the ... green thing, I kinda really like it xD Sometimes the random things we come up with when just splicing random things together can turn out really interesting. Even though it's really disproportionate, I think it works. It's really cartoony, in that way.

Lastly I really like the Panshock, very nicely done. The tail looks a bit too straight, with it being the same width all the way through, and having the outlines being exactly parallel: // It kind of makes it look flat and un-lively. Pikachu is a good example of making a bolt-shaped tail which doesn't look flat. Finally, with the yellow and beige colours, they're very similar so it's sometimes hard to differentiate between them unless you look really closely. One thing about the actual monkey trio is that it's really easy to differentiate between the beige colour and the colour of their hair. Also, be careful about the bottom of the head - it looks to be perfectly straight across, which is extra-noticeable by the black outline.

This one is fine.

This will definately need work. The head doesn't even begin to look attached to the body, and the bodyitself seems too elongated.

Say What? I don't get it. It's a commonly seen concept, and yours is okay. The arm to our right needs shading.

I believe that you forgot to mention Chobokmai. Yes, needs shading.

Please excuse the white square. XD
Iaza.com for with white square. But make sure the background colour is one you didn't use, such as lime green / pink. It also has an animation section, so you'd thus be able to animate it from there. Once animated, use the tranceparancy tool to remove the limegreen or whatever other colour you used.
As always, be critical. It helps me improve. :)

Comments above in bold. I don't believe I had the chance to comment on your previous thread, as I was either on my hiatus or hadn't joined yet. Your sprites could use more shading and some sratching to make them blend a bit though.

The arms are waaaaay too thin.
Especially compared to the body it has.

.

Should have mentioned it's supposed to be a litttle out of proportion. I deliberately gave it stick arms because I think Krookodiles have spindly ones anyway.

This is not a sprite thread for you. This is a thread for Katanga. Iirc you already had two sprite threads. This is ridiculous.

Katanga, your sprites are just the sort of things we need more of around here. Not only are they very well-done splices, but you also have a firm hand on what I like to call the "wtfactor," that shock value that makes people think twice and remember your work.

Everything that I could find to say has been said already, so enjoy this post of mindless praise. Although I do like the jagged mouth you gave Azumaclops.

Well other than what's already been said, I like the work you put into Panshock. However, the bottom half of Panshock is completely motionless, it should probably sway with the rest of its body... but I'm no expert so I could be wrong.

I like this one- you make clever use of the Darmanitan legs, and the shading is correct despite what some people say *looks in direction* The only thing I have to say is that the head looks a little odd-it's postion looks forward almost, making it look a little strange. All you need to do is put it back a little, maybe up, and it will be perfect (even more so to scare little kids! Muw-ha-ha)



http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/9114/randomsplice.png


This one freaks me out. It is a good-put together sprite though, though the shading (on what looks like a jacket) is a little iff- the greyish 'dots' are used on trainers to create the effect of shimming of clothing-I haven't seen it on pokemon sprite (Though, if it is a jacket, you got the shading right, lol) Still, it's a good sprite, and looks like it belongs in the pokemon musical...



http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/125/electricmonkey.gif


This one is a little off for me- his legs seems to stationary to be a 'proper' moving sprite, and the shading is a little off as well (His legs don't look like they've been shaded) The tail also looks like one color-maybe a bit more shading on that? Though, it is good, as you have a good idea of the b/w animation sequence, and this shows it. Maybe some little lighting bolts or something? I like the name Panzap, lol



http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/6273/sharnivine.png



This one made me lol like a fish. It is a very good combanations- they're is alot of creative flow-as most people would put Sharpedo's bit's on Carnivines. The shading is fine as well *Again, stares in direction* His mouth seems a little odd though- the left hand side, Carni's tooth mixes in with his face, and to me, it looks a little odd. Even though, this is really, really good, and if there were a grass x water contest, enter this!



http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/3489/markbwtrainercard.png


This I actually really like-the sprite is well made and proportioned, and looks cool. Though, on the pkmn sprite card, are the colors meant to be different for each row? As the blue one looks kinda bold- and puts the rest of the sprite off. And there's a bit missing from Altarias (or however you spell it) that's white not blue. However, over all, me likkkeeee.



BTW here's an addition to your "freaky" path:
http://www.iaza.com/work/110325C/iaza14257739181300.gif<--- He has a moustache...............

You do know people can't use other people's sprite without permission? Even if this is yours you could not post it on someones else thread, just message them, or put 'see my thread for good ideas'. Katanga can't use it as well as he would have to ask you or whoevers sprite is is for permission, and put credit in. And that isn't the point of your own sprite thread. Though, well done for at least sharing one good idea.


I believe that wasn't even Zekerom's sprite. He stole it from the user Jappio. It should be somewhere in his sprite thread.

I had a look and I couldn't see it on the main page-but I haven't looked through. If he did, he had to have asked for permission, and if it's his, should have posted it else where.

Beyond posting this sprite in someone else's thread, this sprite is also stolen from me.

Well I want to make my posting here fair and on topic at least, so I'll drop some comments for you.



Gengar & Feraligatr:
http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/6366/gengatr.png

Not nearly enough Gengar in this mix. Besides the color and smile one wouldn't have a clue that Gengar was involved. One option could have been to use Gengar as a base. Gengar has so few features it can definetly be tough to splice him.



Dusclops & Azumarill:
http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/9139/duscarill.png

I really like this one, in a weird way it's cute. I think if you made the feet the light tan color would look a little nice, but in no way is required. It's right eye looks a little mangled.



Luxray & Mightyena:
http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/5982/luxena.png

I'd say the main problem I have with this one is the head are. I can't put my finger on it, but it just seems a little off. I can't tell if it's te way the hair is put on it, if it has something to do with the snout, or what. A minor problem, but you also are missing a bit of bordering on the fur on its back.
