This is a sprite of Niddler from Pirates of Dark Water if anyone watched that show when they were younger. I tried to make it look as much like a pokemon as possible, but we'll see.

Here he is:

If you don't know this is what he is supposed to look like.

Criticism appreciated.

I see you are new here.
Welcome at our forum :)

Well, the sprites looks a bit unclear to me. I couldn't make much of the face but when I looked at the real picture of niddler I sough what you where trying to do.
Overall the shading is quit good, only a bit undershaded in general.
I think the biggest problem of this psrite are the lines. The are really unsmooth so I think oyu just have to smooth them up a little bit and it will look alot better then :)

Yea I can certainly see the lines now that you mention it. I made it with MS Paint and heavily used the line tool. I tried to shade it in a similar fashion to the sprite for Simisear (I even stole a few of the colors, they looked nice).

Do you think it would help to maybe characterize the facial features more? It was hard to fit that kind of detail into the sprite. Maybe I'll make the face larger and see what happens.

Thanks for the help, I'll post another one when I get the time and see if it is any better.

This is just the face but I'm trying to allocate more room for the features of it. Think it looks a bit better, shading and detail wise.
