    Hi there. I'm Albinoloon. Not an aquatic bird, but an albino drifloon. Welcome to my spriti- I mean art thread. Here I made things. And I made better things. And later, I hope to make things that are better than all of the others. I once decided that I wanted to make a Fakedex because I thought I had the creativity and spriting prowess to do it. Well, I made 100+ sprites within two weeks, but boy were they bad. So, I restarted. I made some better ones, but they still needed polish (a lot) and shine. Now, I'm retracing my creations and slowly going over them and redesigning them and such. Now, I don't have as much time or motivation as I used to, but I occasionally make one or two when I feel like it. Now that you ave an introduction, here's a brief story about my life at smogon, and my spriting history in general.

    Show Hide

    I like pokemon. A lot. It all started when I saw a freakin cool TGC pack for the first time. (the first series or whatever) I was only a preschooler at the time. I saw the awesome critters on the cover, and I wanted one. I wanted them all. Heck, I wanted all 151. So, I bought one. So, I got the pack. Inside, there was a Mewtwo and an Awesome Venasaur. I knew that my future life would be revolved around these little critters. So, at the age of 6, I bouth my first GBA. And I had Crystal in there. Crystal was amazing. It was my LIFE. I played that thing like there was no tomorrow. An then, Ruby and Sapphire came out. A year later, I was in Circut City, and I was strolling in the gaming isle when I saw a demo. Not just any demo. A demo that had just caught a wurmple. So, my pokemon escapades continued. One day, I heard of a pokemon tournament in Gamestop for DP. I was like 9 at the time and I HAD to participate, but not just me, but my friends. Don't get me wrong, this wasn't serious at all. There were no restrictions. So, I beat a guy. Not only a guy, but a hacker. That's right. My Empoleon, Giratina, and Sceptile beat a Mew, a Deoxys, and a Ho-Oh. I was on top of the world. Until I lost to an 18-year lod redhead. He used an explosion team. A team that made mine go BOOM. And so, I now played competively.

    Two years from that date, I went to the Southeastern VGCs in Nashville. It was fun, but I lost. Not just any loss, but against an EIGHT YEAR OLD GIRL. Her name is Jade. But I got over it. It was a good time. Mean while, I became obsessed with something else. Aquablade's Sprite Chronicles. I was like a superfan. I wanted to be in there. I wanted to be in there a lot. So, I started to make my own charactars. They were awful. Like, beyond awful. They were splices od like mew and Groudon. Just like a noob, I continued. Next year, I HAD to be in the VGC. But I learned a skill. EV training. So, now that I was using "professional" methods, I had to play with the pros. So, I turned to Smogon. Dont get me wrong, I was awful. ANYONE WHO TRIED could beat me. But, this didn't keep me from joining. So, I lurked and lurked and lurked and lurked like crap. Finally, I decided to join. The first thing I did was post this RMT. So, I got rated, and I felt like I was on top of the world. But then, I made a bad rate, and I took it WAYY to hard. But, I came back the next day, confidence retored. This repeated until I had 32 posts. Then, I went to the VGC. I would write this, but it would be easier to redirect you here instead. I had a good time, but I was bored competively. So, I turned to my creations. My sprites.

    I was on Smeargle's Studio, browsing, when I saw the X-box game creation thread. I was in love. I wanted to make these too. So, I had to get out of my splicing comfort zone. So, I sprited, and sprited, and sprited, until I had it. Of course, I didn't, but that didn't stop me from trying. So, I made 15 sprites. 5 were accepted. 3 concepts were accepted. So, sad, I kept doing and doing it. And I met friends along the way. So, I was like. "Hey, I jut might be able to make my own fakemo region!" So I did. I made them in mass quanities, but they were awful. Way too dithery. So, Bynine like destroyed my confidence. I cried. I cried. I cried. But that was a good thing. I thought about my crreations and what I could do to improve them. So, I did. I swore to restart the fakedex and make it even greater than before. They were better, but not that better. So, I decided to remake them again. And that's where I am right now. My spriting and competitie history- leading me to Smogon. Where I belong.

    Hope you liked my story! :)

    Yay! Winderr region!

    This region reminds Kanto. I pick my favorite starter, and I'm screwed against the first gym. XD Anyways, congrats on actually starting the fakedex! By, the way, how's that map going for this region? I thought I saw a snowy mountain, so it must be pretty "cool". Is there gonna' be a dark type gym leader? That'd be a first...and I checked this time.
  4. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    Dark maybe the last; Nagarc is kinda the Urugamosu or Tyanitar of this region. Do you want to se anything particular in this region, oh yeah, I've got the legis. But they'll take awhile to sprite. Two are Psychic and Dark, and the other is Ghost Dragon. (you fight the psy and dark in a double battle)

    due to those insane amounts of checkerboarding (or however it's called) in the shading they don't look like pokemon sprites at all.
    otherwise, they're pretty good
  6. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    Yeah, I'm using dithering. My goal isn't for them to look SO much like pokemon sprites, but thanks anyway! :D Oh yeah, I added Durve.

    Jun 13, 2010
    Oh...my...gosh. Archaeot is like, oh my gosh. Nice.

    Well, a plethora of good grass types. They're always Game Freaks lowest priority. I mean, seriously, A Group of eggs is Grass type? Please.

    Maybe(and I would get on my knees and thank you)

    A Lion/Flower like pokemon with a big white main, like..."Dandilleon". (Pronounced DAn-dill-ee'-uhn) Maybe-Grass/Normal?

    A Grass/Dragon pokemon similar to Sazandora. Like an evo of Tropius.

    A Grass/Fire type pokemon based off of a Fire Lily.

    Yes. Now who's got the good ideas, Game Freak?

    Hhm. A DOUBLE-Legend battle? Interesting... Is there a bug legendary? o_O

    OOH! Can we use Nightcrawlen? It's fine if not, I was just wondering.
  8. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    I'll see what I can do! lol I won't do an evo, but I'll do a grass/dragon! Btw, the legis are based off of little paper creatures I made 2nd-4th grade, but that's a different story. Archaeot is based off of the heat-loving archaebacteria, and I made it because of the 2nd gym. (fire)
    I'll be working on the sprites you requested, particularly the fire lily. Thanks for the concepts! :D

    EDIT:If I'm going to use nightcrawlen, could I tweak the shading and coloring so it matches the rest?
  9. ToastTyrant13


    Jun 13, 2010
    Sure. Thanks! I wonder how big that is...if it's a bacteria...

    Don't you're avatar and it's pre-evo go in here?
  10. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    Nah, if I use them, I'm going tto redo them.
    Working on Flairy.

    EDIT:Flairy the fire lily. :)

    I personally think Foliarm should be Foliark (foliage + dark >_>) because it makes more sense imo, and it looks cooler. Looking forward to more of this. :> If I may suggest something though, could all of the final evolutions of the starters be dual-typed? I love dual-types. xD The Water started could be Water/Ice, and Fire could be Fire/Dark (I would say Fire/Fighting but we have too many of those).

    Also, could we make a group for this so we don't spam up the art forum with non-art-related things (i.e. stats and movesets and whatnot)?

    Edit: Awwww it's so cute :D What typing is it? It looks like it should me Fire/Flying or Fire/Bug.
  14. ToastTyrant13


    Jun 13, 2010
    It's Flairy-The Fire Lily Pokemon. It's Grass/Fire.

    Oh my Guanno! That's awesome. A quick comment though.
    The little orange leaf on our top left makes his face a little underappreciated. Perhaps if you made it like our top right leaf-how it sticks out?[​IMG]Also, beutiful coloring. Well done!
  15. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    OK, I understand Flarrex as FRE/DRK, but what about Wanyah? I don't want to make it WTR/DRG, because it woud be, you know, too good, and I just don't see it as WTR/ICE. I'll change foliarm to Floiark as soon as I'm done! :) Btw, Flairy is FRE/GRS. Sure, my friend has a website we could use: (don't mind him, he can kinda be a jerk, lol) Like this? *link deleted*
  16. chocolate-kipp


    Sep 18, 2010
    I'd prefer if we just made a group, since I always forget when I sign up for other sites, lol. Group would be easier to keep track of imo. I still love your sprites, despite them not being as pokemon-esque as everyone makes them out to be.

    How about Water/Psychic? It looks like a whale/dolphin and to some extent those may as well be psychic, lol.
  17. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    Sure, but how are we gonna do that?
    Nah, I just don't see that. :/

    EDIT:Thanks man! that means a lot! :)
  18. ToastTyrant13


    Jun 13, 2010
    Yeah, that's right. I love it's little chibbi legs too.

    Hmm, have we decided if it's a single evo, or it's size? Probably like Celebi's size?

    [​IMG]Flairy-The Flaming Lily Pokemon.

    "It uses sunlight to create plant life, and to defeat intruders. It's heart beats like the morning sun."

    Abilities:Chlorophyll or Solar Power

    Kipp, I'm sure this thing is a monster in the sun. no?
  19. chocolate-kipp


    Sep 18, 2010
    Made a group and invited you guys.

    I actually think if could be a legendary, maybe an event one like Celebi or Victini. It reminds me a lot of them. :P
  20. Albinoloon


    Apr 27, 2010
    Yeah, it's static, as in it doesn't evolve. Thanks kipp! :D

    It's weird, we're the only people posting, huh. I guess no one likes dithering... :`(

    Man, you can really pump out those concepts!
    lol it would be interesting if we could work together on a fakeregion eh? my spriting skills, your concepting like a beast, I think we could do some cool stuff eh? :)

    no I'm not canadian, eh!

    Oops! Sorry, I didn't see that you had already given him abilities and a flavor. They keep popping up XD.

    Edit 1: OOH! A Flying/Fighting! STAB Close Combat+STAB Brave Bird+U-Turn+Whirlwind? SWEET!

    Edit 2:Washio...the new Gyarados! That looks awesome.

    If I may, we need the generic early game rodent, no?

    Jun 13, 2010
    Sure, but instead of Meerkat's, mice, or squirells...how about a bunny that evolves into a big, scary Ice/Fighting bunny? With technician and Ice Shard/Mach Punch? Like, Fluffunny evolves into Frostearn (fro-stearn or Frost+Ear+confusing n)?
