Righty, so I've had my modified sprites for a while, but I didn't feel like updating. Now I do! I've made some few adjustments--mostly to Argalis. The shells around its body should be okay in terms of making them look like four shells, as one can see a slight divide at the bottom of the capsule. I've also made a divide in Argalis's hair, as I had missed that with my first draft.
The shinies should look familiar, and there's a reason behind them. :) ICC's shiny Aurumoth was dubbed 'Argentumoth', and if the pre-evolutions are based off of Cuprum and Argentum as well, I could make a pattern of having an 'Aupra' and 'Cupralis'.
I should divide the sprites to Cupra and Argalis separately for final submission, note to myself.
- elcheeso: The body's pretty good for Cupra, but the face's geometry is a bit unnatural. A diagonal line with a slope of -1 is easy to make for sprites, but it looks odd for the face of Cupra. Perhaps you can round it like you did the right side of the face. Additionally, the left eye has a corner from compressing the curve into that many pixels, and it makes that area, well, sharp. Using a lighter color for the top left of the eye will make that 'point' look less so. Is my comment understandable? X3
- CBMeadow: Ah, nicely done with the perspective. I just follow paintseagull's given one. v.v Other than the shape of the head I mentioned on IRC, the antennae don't look symmetrical. Where as the left branch of the left one is always vertical, the right branch of the right one has a very distinctive bend. I believe the left one should be moved left slightly and similarly angled. Other than that, the shading of the fur ruff compared to the wings confuses me, since there's a distinctive black line separating the two, but softer colors and highlights on the wing that says otherwise about lighting. Just a minor change to the contrast should do. There's also an inadvertent illusion of a line you made that follows the shadow of the right antenna to the tuft of hair sticking out perfectly horizontally. Breaking one of those lines will make it look more natural. :)
