The guy's pants are off, the espeon egg's tail is cut off and the rayquaza egg's horn was chipped. Sloppy, but pretty good.

Hey P-Man, i have an idea. Stop spamming! You go around saying that people's sprites suck and don't tell them how to improve! Stop! You know, saying 'Stop spriting' can really hurt somones feelings and make them never wan't to try again! They CAN practice, you know! They can get better, unlike you, as you'll always be mean. He/She's a first timer, they're just trying! So quit going around swearing at people for trying to sprite!

*End of rant*

On topic: They're pretty goo, though they could use some improvement. I suggest trying to mix some pokemon, but only two-pokemon mixes. The eggs are a little blocky, and they could use a little less pokemon parts, but other than that, you're off to a good start! Good luck! ^_^

Leon

Thanx Kauser, (im Male), i might try some mixes l8er, but im gonna do eggs just now since their pretty easy.

The eggs are okay, but they need to connect better and some have funky shading or outlines.

And the trainer needs to be improved. >.>;; There's no shading on the pants, plus they look weird. And the shading on his head seems weird too.

Leon

espeon & umbreon mixes!

jhoto moto
20th November 2005, 1:58 PM
Well i like these mixes but they still could have a few more improvements the espeon+umbreon and vice verse are okay but houndactyle looked as if his wing was about to fall of and the argon was a little too dark in the shading

Grandmaster Chao
20th November 2005, 2:56 PM
I agree wiv some people. Groudon egg is ace! Raquaza egg is aright. But u can tell dat guy P-Man to get a life. In my opinion he's a bully.

Ok... a lot to say here...
---------------------------------------
Groudon egg: Meh, if the egg is done well, it still gets a max of /10 as a sprite. The spots on the egg aren't appropriate colours though... 4.5/10

Ritchie: Those eyes are scary... Well, he's a recolour with customised pants. Try and add some shading and outlining so the pants don't look like they're joined at the ends. As a recolour + some custom work... 5.5/10

Espeon egg: Ears stuck on well, spots again are inappropriate colours. The tail has some of it chopped off... if you're using Paint, you can select things transparently; no need to chop stuff off. ;) 4/10

Umbreon egg: Colours are getting better. Three ears? >_< One should be a tail; you oughta put it where the tail should be. 4.999/10

Charmander egg: Very simple, but no problems. 5/10

Shining 'Quaza egg: That red spot! >_< The tail needs to be lower; as does the right-hand 'ear'. Left-hand ear/horn is cut off. 4.5/10

Articuno egg: Wings are fine, tail is fine. Colour scheme... red spots?! The only red on Arty is its eyes... 4.5/10

Crobat egg: See that white line over the lower-right wing? Transparent selecting is your friend. ;) The white spot should just be light blue. 4.5/10

Houndoom egg: Wow, so much white space. Please size down your canvas before saving and posting. Tail is too high; white spot is bleh. Horns are fine. 4.5/10

Houdactyl: The outline is stuffed up. Take care when colouring to keep each shade separate; each sprite should have enough shades for satisfactory recolours. Note that outlines can be coloured sometimes. Your recolouring looks odd; use this guide (http://www.bobandgeorge.com/Other/Guides/Spriting.html) to recolour easily and effectively. Don't use this forum's guide; this method's easier. Aside from that, mixes should be more than recolouring and cut+paste. Try and blend the pieces in more, and involve more of the non-base sprite, even using sprites from other bats. 6/10

Argon (lol, that's a gas): Firstly, recolouring. Watch the shades; see how you made the shine on its body darker than the rest? Also note that gray should generally not be used as a darkest shade. It looks tacky. Watch the outlines; in some places it is missing. The 'face' on its hood is fine. Sticking Flygon's wings there just.. doesn't work. They look like they should be protruding from the centre of the hood, not the edges. That would still look odd though. What could you do? Sticking the wings on the body is an option, but overall they're just hard to mix. 6/10

Espeon/Umbreon (Espeon base): A definite improvement. Your positioning of the rings is excellent, although on the front leg the ring is cut off. Just draw it back in. The eyes need some shading. 8/10

Umbreon/Espeon (Umbreon base): The other one was better. The main body needs an extra shade; just like the Umbreon sprite has one. To get another shade, an easy way is to copy+paste the lightest shade of purple you have into MS Word, open the Picture toolbar (right-click any of the toolbars and select 'Picture'), select the image and click brighten (the icon with a sun and an upward arrow), then press Print Screen on your keyboard and transfer back into Paint or whatever. Well, at least that works for me. >_< The rings should be a colour that stand out more, or alternately be erased, as Espeon doesn't have any. Red just isn't light enough. The eyes look decidedly odd, but that's probably the purple and blue clashing. Try and find a slightly lighter shade of blue, and use a further lighter shade for the shine. The tail should be behind the ears, not in front. The blue/gray used for your darkest shade of purple was a mistake; go for a darker purple. 7/10

Abchu: Ugh; where to begin.. you've lost outline again. See my Houndactyl comments. Absol's rump needs a light yellow as a light shade. The left ear should be higher and the right ear should be lower. The main reason this one looks tacky is because of all the lost outline. 6/10

Salamence egg: Remove the outline on the right-hand whiskers. I'd suggest the spots be gray/white instead of red; it goes better IMO. Wings need to be lower, what's up with the random bright red parts? Left whiskers need to be moved in a bit, and under the egg, not over.
---------------------------------------
Overall, you've got potential. Please read the above C+C, it'll be beneficial for you. Try and go for quality over quantity; sane people will respect a single high-quality sprite over an army of absolute s***.
---------------------------------------

But u can tell dat guy P-Man to get a life. In my opinion he's a bully.No, he a'int. He's just a harsh critic. Overly harsh, granted, but a critic all the same. Without critics, your sprites will never improve. He did say what was bad, vaguely.

Definitely better. Actually, I have but one criticism: the fin on its head should be further forward. That's it from me. 8/10

Pidgefairy: Aren't wings usually on a Pok&#233;mon's back? This makes the whole sprite look odd... Again, the shades are odd. The grays just don't suit; dark Pidgey-brown is what you want. Well, there isn't much custom work involved, but it's simple, and with relatively few problems. 7/10

PS. You may want to check the Sig rules... you're only allowed 3 images not hosted on SPP.

Well i don't think saying "It's shite. The Groudon egg suxs so much, stop" Is constructive critisicm. It sound like he's saying 'You suck at spriting, stop'.

Alright...I'm not going to lie, you aren't all that good, even for a beginner. I feel I should critique each one, just as bass_forte did.

Groudon Egg: There are major outlining problems-outline should be reddish, rather than gray. Part of the left hand is missing. There is a gray splotch behind the right hand. The tail is missing a chunk. The top egg-splotch is white.

Ritchie: Shading is destroyed on both the hat-thing and the pants. The shape of the pants doesn't look right. The eyes are red.

Espeon Egg: There are more outline problems-outline is gray, not purple as it should be. Huge chunk of the tail is missing. Ears are connected in odd locations. Red splotch should have shading, if meant to look like gem on head.

Umbreon Egg: Once again, bad outlining (more of the same gray). The ears/tail are connected weird...as if there are three ears. Top splotch is white...looks odd.

Charmander Egg: The way that the tail is positions looks off. More gray outlining problems.

Crobat Egg: The wings are attached so that they look like they aren't completely connected to the body. Top splotch is white...looks wrong. More of that same gray outling...

Houndoom Egg: Same gray outlining problems...Some shading problems additionally. Part of the right horn look like they may be cut off (outline?). Better though.

Flygon/Arbok Mix: Parts aren't blended together very well. Recoloring is very sloppy, and doesn't look like regular flygon colors. The tail is very poorly done. The wings look like they may fall off soon.

Umbreon(base)/Espeon Mix: You've destroyed the shading again. Some outlining problems. In general, alright.

Espeon(base)/Umbreon Mix: Shading is almost completely destroyed. Outline is discolored and choppy. Random splotches of color in odd places. Tail attached somewhat oddly.

Well...I don't think I need to go any farther. The same thing seems to repeat over and over again. Read a tutorial or two. They will help. Alright I guess...Good try...

Okay first off
i'm going to be honest
these sprites suck
they do
But fear NOT i have helpful tips that will direct you to the path to greatness!!
tip # 1: NEVER SAVE AS .JPG!!!!!!! It tries to fade the colors into eachother giving them a smoother look (.jpg is good for photographs not sprites) always save as .PNG
Tip # 2: Get rid of the white space and no i don't mean white-be-gone. You know how to make the paint sheet bigger and smaller right? Grab the blue boxes in the corners of the sheet and drag them. There should only be enough white space for the sprite to fit into
Tip # 3. when recoloring and object take the eydropper LEFT click the color you want to change and RIGHT click the color you want to change it into. Then grab the eraser and RIGHT click and drag it over the spirte. Only the color you LEFT clicked changes. And remember ALWAYS match the lightest color in a sprite with the lightest color in another sprite.
Tip # 4: When putting wings on a sprite always decide whether to put them in front or behind the body see http://photobucket.com/albums/y265/mountaindew191/th_wing.png you have to determine whether or not to put the wings in the front or back. For sprites like Poliwag and Spheal the wings would be like arms. But for others they would be like angel wings. On their backs.

i hope i've helped
