View Full Version : Littleman3's first ever sprite thread

6th December 2005, 5:44 PM
The other day I decided to start making pokemon sprites. Tell me please if my sprites are good, and I will do requests for revamps/devamps (from RSEFRLG to GSC and vice versa only) and fusions for just two pokemon. However, if I think they're too much of a challenge, please don't be offended if I don't do them.
Anyways, these are the sprites I have so far:
That was the first sprite I ever did, Growlithe with Zigzagoon colors.
Fusion of Igglybuff and Natu - Igglytu
My Pikachu/Whismur - Pismur
Ho-row - Fearow and Ho-oh
Linoone and Quilava - Liliva
Sanslash and Raichu - Sandchu (sounds rather like Sandshrew)
Chinchou and Paras - Chinras (Not too proud of it)
Revamped Suicune from Gold
Revamped Crystal Lugia (I know some-one else made one but I DID NOT STEAL IT)
Revamped Gold Slugma
Revamped Gold Lapras (has some blue on its ear - might redo that later)
Devamped FRLG Hitmonlee

So those are my sprites. If you have a request, explain it if it's revamp/devamp and fill out this form if it's a fusion:
Pokemon 1
Pokemon 2
So that's it. Request and rate!

Oh, and don't forget the flashing Suicune:

6th December 2005, 9:14 PM
The Igglytu's beak looks a bit miss placed. The Crystal Lugia needs some darker colors. What am I saying?! Their great that's all.

7th December 2005, 4:02 PM
Thanks people. Does anyone have requests? I'm short of ideas.

7th December 2005, 8:59 PM
Yeah, I do. It's not really good, bu if you can make this into a sprite, I'd gladly appreciate it. Sorry, it was a quick draw. http://img339.imageshack.us/my.php?image=araza9mz.png Look closely at the body, it's small.

9th December 2005, 7:54 PM
I'm afraid it didn't really work, Connor. Here is the sprite:
It looks like it's just thrown together with paint because it is. I'll stick with fusions, revamps and devamps for a while. Hope you weren't desperate to get a sprite of that.

Shade the gold Lapras a bit more. I think they're quite good.

9th December 2005, 8:01 PM
These are pretty good for your first sprites. Can you try a Meowth/Skitty mix? Use Meowth as the base

9th December 2005, 8:13 PM
Okey dokey, Torchic23. I'm working on it. But hadn't someone else already done one of those before?

Edit: Okay, here it is.
Looks a bit like it's been sunbathing a bit too long!

Keep on requesting, and I'd also like a sprite something to do with Growlithe.(You probably guessed Growlithe's my favourite pokemon)

Edit again:
I've devamped a FRLG Growlithe!
Is it good?

9th December 2005, 9:32 PM
I am desprate, but that is a pretty good sprite, because I badly drew it. If I can draw a better one, could u make that a sprite and a good devamp?

9th December 2005, 9:41 PM
Okay, but what do you mean by good devamp? What pokemon to what gen?

Btw, I made another sprite. It's a Revamp of Mewtwo from RB.
It's my first revamp from the first gen, and I think it turned out quite good.

9th December 2005, 9:45 PM
I mean a devamp of the sprite u made me. To the 1st generation. I sent u an email.

9th December 2005, 9:53 PM
Oh, right. But I didn't get the email, can you PM me the message?
Also, do you want me to devamp the sprite I already made, or this new drawing you might draw me? I'm not that clear on it at the moment.

9th December 2005, 10:21 PM
There is a little "foot" under Sandchu's right. Also, there's a little blach area around Pismur left ear.
Other than that, they are all good sprites. May I suggest trying to devamp Jirachi? And if not, get an Octillery/Roselia mix (Octillery as base)

9th December 2005, 10:35 PM
The foot's meant to be there. If you look at the original Raichu sprite you'll see it. What gen do you want Jirachi devamped to?

9th December 2005, 10:50 PM
Here it is: make sprite smaller, Littleman3. http://img455.imageshack.us/my.php?image=image12gn.png Now u can see da details. By the way, I want you to devamp the new sprite. Also, I'll re- email u.

Sorry to double post, but I just wanted to say, "Thanks alot 4 working hard, Littleman3. One of my world wide dreams is to have a sprite of Araza, the drawing I made. If u can make a very good sprite, I promise I will let u see my 37 page cheat book of my own game I worked really, really hard on. I hope you'll like it, though it could take a while to finish, 'cause it is very long. I will give u my website, and how to find the cheat book."

10th December 2005, 3:49 AM
I really like the mixes, especially the Fearow/Ho-oh hybrid. Some parts are out of proportion, you might want to work on that. =|
The revamps are okay but you really need to add more shades and work on the outline. They also look a little sloppy, like the Suicune.
Try to improve on that. Overall, youre a pretty good spriter as a beginner. Keep up the good work. ;)

10th December 2005, 3:54 AM
The scratch sprite has too much black outline.

Here it is: make sprite smaller, Littleman3. http://img455.imageshack.us/my.php?image=image12gn.png Now u can see da details. By the way, I want you to devamp the new sprite. Also, I'll re- email u.
I made one just because I felt like it. http://*******.com/idzzew.png It seems to bee too big and disportional though.

10th December 2005, 12:51 PM
Okay. Polursine, I'll try devamping Jirachi to 1st and 2nd gens. But it's probably gonna be hard, 'cause on say the Hitmonlee, I've got a good color set to work with. I'll try just finding another blue pokemon and use those colors. Connor, the Azara's probably going to be just as hard as it was. I'm not good at making sprites from scratch. Is it okay if I base it on yours, Wigu?

Well, Polursine, here's your RB Jirachi.
I used the colors of Seel. I think it turned out OK.

Edit again:
Here's the GSC Jirachi:

10th December 2005, 3:02 PM
Wigu, it's so cute! I luv it! That is ok, Littleman3. You tried your best. Wigu, u just need a better outline. U don't have 2, though. Nice Jirachi devamp, Littleman3, it's not 2 bad. Hey Wigu, if u want, though I'm not really counting on if u did, could u make mysterious dungeon stuff for my pokemon? If u do, try using the cute version of my pkmn. U don't have 2, but u could do it if u r bored. And if u don't want 2 do that, if you r not busy, can u make a back version of my pkmn?

10th December 2005, 3:59 PM
I'm not sure about this but shouldn't that sort of message be sent by PM and not in a public thread, going off topic and talking about Wigu's sprites instead of mine, which the topic is about?

10th December 2005, 4:32 PM
What, I can't talk about both sprites?

11th December 2005, 12:14 PM
Well, I don't actually know... I'm just short of ideas and want to make new sprites.

11th December 2005, 1:34 PM
A very myserious mix would be a Haunter/Jirachi and Jirachi as base.

11th December 2005, 2:26 PM
Okay, I'll try that. Also, I made my first real scratch sprite using Zelionax's tutorial. I call it Axtran :)

Edit: I tried to fuse a Jirachi/Haunter but it was just impossible. Does anyone have any different request?

11th December 2005, 5:56 PM
Hey, Littleman3, I have an idea! How about you redo my pkmn, but this time use the tutorial! Maybe the picture will turn out better!

11th December 2005, 8:34 PM
Hmmm... that might work. But right now I'm working on a pixel art Altaria.

11th December 2005, 11:00 PM
Okay, give it a try.

12th December 2005, 4:06 PM
Well, here it is. It's actually more of an alternate sprite than pixel art.
I'll get to work on Araza.

Edit: I sort of made a sprite of Araza. But actually it's so big it's more of a whatjamacallit.

12th December 2005, 8:26 PM
That is a very good version of it. Why don't u just shrink my pkmn, and it'll be perfect!

13th December 2005, 7:36 PM
I tried to do that on paint, but the outline came out all blurry. Is there a better way to do it?

Edit: Also, I suddenly had a brilliant idea while looking at the avatars. Mudkip + Wynaut x Spriting skill / Internet respect =

13th December 2005, 9:15 PM
it's fusion connor...fusion
the sprite, quite frankly, is merely a poor cut-and-paste job, that has little recoloring and blending. the outlining needs work, and more Wynaut in general...
I suggest you read a tutorial

13th December 2005, 9:20 PM
Internet respect
What internet respect? The only person who respects you is Connor. >.>

Also, these sprites aren't particularly good. Just... Okay.
On some of the revamps, they have all black outlines, when parts of it should be dark Blue/White/Green/Whatever other color.
I would say your best fusion is Sandslash/Raichu, and that Altaria isn't very good. The Altaria is... Deformed. It has weird-looking lips, and it's eyes are just dots. Also, the cloud part of it doesn't look fluffy.

13th December 2005, 11:10 PM
Geesh, Electabuzz. Kauser79 is right about internet respect. Kauser79, you have some internet respect too.

13th December 2005, 11:19 PM
Electabuzz isn't being disrespectful just....frank.
the revamps need better outlines and you need to give them your own shading. The R/B/Y/G G/S/C shading sucks
I agree the best fusion is the Sandslash/Raichu
the Mudkip/Wynaut just isn't good

14th December 2005, 4:14 PM
Yeah, I know the Mudkip and Wynaut was a bit rushed, but I like the other sprites, though I say so myself. Also, I was playing Pokemon Leafgreen just yesterday and I now know and understand how the 3rd generation outlining works. I'll try to make them better in future. PS, Electabuzz, how do you think I got spriting if I didn't use a tutorial? Anyway, I don't want the topic to get het up with arguments. If you tell me that they're not that good, that's fine as long as you tell me how I can get better. That's the only way I'll learn.

15th December 2005, 7:13 PM
Do all the game sprites have the light scource coming from the same place? If it did, that would make things so much easier.

Edit: No-one posted and I was bored. So I made a pineapple person!
Isn't it cute? I got the hang of outline shading too.

15th December 2005, 9:58 PM
You aren't bad, don't get me wrong. Of a lot of the spriters here, you have so much potential. I come off as being very harsh, but as Starter said, I tell things how they seem em, no fluffy stuff at all. Some may see this as mean or harsh, but I just see it as me...

16th December 2005, 6:56 PM
Uhh... he meant 'You are right. It is cute.' It was just wrong grammar.

Edit: I got bored again, so I made a sprite of this weird purple snake thing I had in a dream once. The thing on its tail is probably an energy sword, or ray gun. I'm not entirely sure which.
It is rather strange, but it makes a teeny bit more sense if you're me.

~╬Tpz Rzrdon╬~
17th December 2005, 10:19 AM
Pretty good, your best two were Revamped Suicune and Ho-row.
You need some work on the outline and shading.

Good work!

Dark Venusaur
17th December 2005, 1:14 PM
The outline on the things neck and the tail is too dark. But it is still good.

;003;Dark Venusaur;003;

17th December 2005, 1:33 PM
Thanks people. I can now say that I can make 64*64 sprites from scratch. However, I don't know how to make Trainer Cards, shadow pokemon, and animations. And if anyone asks for WBGs, that's no bother at all and only takes about one minute.

Yet another edit: I always like to have something to keep me busy, so I decided to revamp the Gold version Charizard.

Another edit: Same story. Got bored, made sprite. It's a strange rainbow snake called Separchoris. What does it take to make you guys post?
That's it. I might try that Octillery/Roselia mix for Polursine.

17th December 2005, 9:36 PM
Okay. Sorry for double posting but I felt I needed to bump the topic up a bit. I made my first ever trainer sprite of guess who - me!
It was all made by recoloring and fusing. Comments and CC please.

Dark Venusaur
17th December 2005, 10:20 PM
That Charizard looks great I guess. The last creature looks like a Ribbon.

;003;Dark Venusaur;003;

18th December 2005, 6:42 PM
I'm not telling how old I am, but I'm short for my age. I might make the guitar black later, the color it actually is. By the way, the parts I used for it are: Ash's jeans, the guitarist's guitar and hands, the male tuber's head with the colors of the guitarist's hair, and the T-shirt was my own.

Edit: I've sorta got a drummer now - but he doesn't have any drums. He's got blue drumsticks as well, but that's just because I was lazy.
Together with the 'Me' sprite and some others, I could make a band!

19th December 2005, 6:13 PM
I've spent hours trying to find a good battle scene picture, and I've finally sorta got it. I made a kinda funny battle scene picture. Credit to pokemon elite 2000 for the bg.
Does anyone know where to get the other battle scene bgs?

19th December 2005, 9:00 PM
Wow! That's an amazing battle scene! Can you make yourself battling a Kirby!?

19th December 2005, 9:38 PM
Haha, the battle scene is good.

The guy has no neck though and what's up with Charmander's HP? Also, the levels are moved too far to the right.

Dark Venusaur
19th December 2005, 9:58 PM
Its good but what Polar Spirt said about the levels that needs to be fix.

;003;Dark Venusaur;003;

20th December 2005, 4:54 PM
Connor, I can't make me battling Kirby. I don't have a back sprite of either. Thanks for the hp tip, I didn't notice that when I made it. I'll post a fixed version when I've made one.

Edit: Fixed! Here is the image.
There! Does anyone know a good place to get just the bgs?

20th December 2005, 8:41 PM
It's Perfect!

21st December 2005, 10:20 AM
You think that helps me but actually it doesn't. Compliments are good, but still no-one has answered my question. Until I know where to get the BGs, I can do no more battle scenes.

Edit: Yes! Yes! Yes! I found the battle scenes. I looked in the sprite resources thread and found this:
The battle locations (http://img127.imageshack.us/my.php?loc=img127&image=Battlescreens.jpg)

Edit again: I gave myself a challenge by revamping a RB Tangela with lots of outline shading - and it worked! Yay!

21st December 2005, 8:30 PM
The eyes r really small. I mean really small.

22nd December 2005, 4:42 PM
The eyes were that small on the original RB Tangela. I thought I should leave them in there, 'cause there isn't any more room in the black bit to put bigger ones.

22nd December 2005, 4:55 PM
Your shading needs work. =\ Look at the shirt of the trainer sprites (And certain revamps too) But for the rest they're OK.

22nd December 2005, 8:57 PM
Ok, Littleman3.

22nd December 2005, 8:59 PM
what was the point of that post connor?
wow...that tangela is really quite good...that sprite is nearly impossible for experienced spriters, so the fact that you made that so well is really quite amazing...great work!

(edited so my post had a point x_X)

22nd December 2005, 10:04 PM
what was the point of that post connor?
And what was the point of that post? And what is the point of this post?

In order to give this point a post, I'll give you some advice. Try looking at existing trainer sprites to get an idea of how they are shaded.

Dark Venusaur
22nd December 2005, 11:55 PM
Anyways it looks good but thats how a real Red and Blue Tengela looks like.

;003;Dark Venusaur;003;

23rd December 2005, 4:57 PM
I think once the anime came out, Tangela was changed a bit from the original RB sprite so it was easier to draw. Then they changed the sprites for all the other games starting from Yellow, so they do look quite different.

Edit: Made my first Trainer card! Made with the GIMP (http://gimp.org) and credit to my brother who knows how to use it.
The last two slots are Sandchu and the PINEAPPLE PERSON (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showpost.php?p=2488332&postcount=36)!

Dark Venusaur
23rd December 2005, 10:39 PM
The body parts are popping out you see how my TC look like. Well Blood Vampire made these.

;003;Dark Venusaur;003;

23rd December 2005, 11:02 PM
Dark Venusaur, isn't it obvious he did that on purpose?

Dark Venusaur
23rd December 2005, 11:14 PM
Dark Venusaur, isn't it obvious he did that on purpose?
Isnt it obvious that I did not know that and he probably made a mastake?

;003;Dark Venusaur;003;

24th December 2005, 3:57 PM
It is to make it look cool, Dark Venusaur. DUH.

24th December 2005, 4:20 PM
It was actually my bro's idea. I thought it worked well. Expect an edit to this post, I'm thinking of de/revamping Ursaring.

24th December 2005, 4:37 PM
Do a devamp of R/S/E Ursaring!

24th December 2005, 4:43 PM
OK. Here.
Before you complain about the black/brown half tone shading, take a look at the GSC sprites for Ursaring. They have that too.

24th December 2005, 5:04 PM
Good! Try a R/S devamp of Deoxys to G/S/C generation.

24th December 2005, 5:06 PM
Hmmm... a challenge. Excellent! I'll try it.

24th December 2005, 5:15 PM
When you are done, can you do a repose of R/S Blaziken?

24th December 2005, 5:26 PM
Here's the devamped Deoxys.
Connor, are you going to use any of these or are you just challenging me?

24th December 2005, 11:52 PM
Can't I give you suggestions? *crys very loudly*

25th December 2005, 12:33 AM
you should do more to devamps then just recolor...try to change the poses to make them more similar to RB style sprites...it makes them look more "devamped"

26th December 2005, 3:01 AM
Try Blaziken into a R/B devamp.

30th December 2005, 2:28 AM
that's spam connor...not to mention, as you said...double posting

30th December 2005, 12:20 PM
you should do more to devamps then just recolor...try to change the poses to make them more similar to RB style sprites...it makes them look more "devamped"
If I do that though, it makes them look very me-ish. I have a different style of drawing than the way Game Freak drew the sprites. Just look at my Pineapple Person:
Now compare it with one of the game sprites. Does that clarify my point?

30th December 2005, 5:29 PM
Try making Dratini green! ^_^

31st December 2005, 10:24 AM
*Sighs*... Okay, but it'll be very very easy.

The first Buizeru
31st December 2005, 10:44 AM
My favorite is the flashing Suicune, I think you should make more flashing pokemon, they are exelent, all of them, well done!

4th January 2006, 4:31 PM
I've made some new sprites... I thought I'd post to just give the thread a second chance, cause all anyone looks at are the threads on the first page.
Glatangrockwhirley aka Norman the Nondescript. Super-pokemon created for a competition.
Charizard in chainmail. Created for the Medieval spriting competition. Made with the gimp with my ideas and my bro's ability to use the gimp. I myself find it ever so complicated, especially for spriting. I just use it to WBG my sprites mostly.

Please comment. I'm not sure I want this thread to die yet.

Edit: C'mon, I'm screaming reply reply reply! I made a Pupitar/Shedninja mix:
Please comment! Reply! Please, I'm beggin' ya!

10th January 2006, 10:05 PM
Nice! I'm finally unbanned, so... I like the Pupitar/ Shedninga, good!

12th January 2006, 8:58 PM
You replied... Yes! Woo-hoo! Anyway, thanks for the compliment but I've run out of ideas again. Boo-hoo. Anyone got some?

12th January 2006, 9:07 PM
Electabuzz and Parasect...

13th January 2006, 12:43 PM
Ampharos with Spearow colors?

13th January 2006, 8:52 PM
I made something a bit strange that has nothing to do with pokemon.
Click if ye really want to (http://img494.imageshack.us/img494/5615/strangeman7ds.gif)
I didn't know if it was small enough to post as an image, so to be safe I've given a link to it. It's rather strange... I don't know why I made it yet somehow it feels satisfying. Germs must always escape the body! Arr!

13th January 2006, 11:35 PM
Ok. It's...ok. Weird.

13th January 2006, 11:48 PM
it's poorly animated...very choppy
not to mention very weird o_O

14th January 2006, 9:57 AM
I don't know why I made it... I just have these strange ideas sometimes.

14th January 2006, 10:45 AM
Can you make an Absol/Mightyena fusion, Absol base?

6th June 2006, 9:15 PM
I'll also say I liked the mixes, especially the Linoone/Quilava one. Sorry I didn't say so before!
