question. For Nohface, I was thinking of putting multiple masks, but I want to know what your opinion is wyverii, 1, 2 or 3 masks?
The idea is that Nohface is simply the mask (or masks) that are all over Kitsunoh's body. Nohface itself is very slow, moving by being carried by the evil spirits that gather around it. When a bunch of Nohface gather together, their various spirits combine together and they form a single Kitsunoh.
You have a lot of artistic license with the kit pre-evo. It doesn't have a set design so go with what you feel is good. Be aware that Kitsunoh's pre-evolution is a point of much debate like Krilowatt's and may not be picked in favour of another design.
i dont like it either. maybe keep the mask,without the spines/horns, and give it a kind of baby wolf look? may help it relate to the final evo much more easily like that. also its kinda unsettling seeing somthing with 3 heads, and no body to share.
hmmm to me the wisps dont look... well... wispy enough.
they look kind of solid. Im not an artist so i dont know how you would manage it, but i think it would look alright if the wisps looked less solid
On request, a more genuine gen5 version of Pyroak. Complete with similar shading scheme and has been split up into parts on seperate layers for later animation, something that would be more difficult with the other pyroak sprites I've made.
This looks really really good Wyverii. o:
The only thing I could point out is that the shading is a tad bit soft on his "armor". ie, it doesn't particularly look hard and wood-y (most notably the cannons). It's still amazing though, don't get me wrong.
i think it looks great considering its just the basic layers. but the neck seems a little sheepish, maybe you could outstrech the neck a bit to make it look like its going on an offensive stance, not trying to run away. thas my verdict.
and can i have a link to the voodoom concept? because im having trouble spriting it.
I rather like that Nohface sprite; it looks crazy cool. I don't quite mind the wisps in it, or that he has a body. I think having a body is kind of important for a Pokemon, and think that a disembodied set of masks would be very confusing for the Pokemon. It'd remind me a lot of like... Dugtrio. Except that, instead of evolving to gain more heads, it'd lose them? That seems weird to me. I say keep the body, or at least try versions of both.
Also, Wyv, the proportions of that Pyroak bother me a bit. The shading and shape of the head suggests that he has it cocked to one side, which looks weird. The arms are huge, too, and I think that the legs are having vanishing point problems. (too big in front and too small in back) All over I get that "looks funny" vibe, though, which I think definitely needs to be addressed. I think fixing up my previous points might be a good start. I like the work so far, though, but miss the cannon-aiming pose. ;_;
