Just wanted to try to make a clean, decents picture,
In some way, I think iI quit succeded :p
I still think the eyes look a bit messy, and the outlining is way too fat, and that the shades look a bit messy, but i still try too improve.
So I hope I could get alot of comments (harsh or not :p) so can improve
ps: I you where wondering wich pokemno this is, it's just a fakemon I invented a while ago... please don't comment too much on the concept of the pokemon, cause actually I just trying to improve my GIMP-skills :p
cap 11 is ready to sprite, so I wanted to give it a shot too:
from now on I got this:
the rough line art
I really wanted to make the I-just-became-evil-and-rises-up-to-slice-some-head-off pose :p
But I got a problem, the heart and the needle that go through it: it's would be hardly seeable, in my first pose.
The second line art, is just that I noticed the expresion of the head ad the arm also could be a good standing pose, so I might do that. Of course it somewhat looses it orginality.
The third pose is just the turned, so the heart would be alot more seeable. But the down side of this one is that it doens't look god anymore because my original pose is in a slight angle, and if I turn it it looks like the pupette is a trying not to slip off a hill of something.
the baseic colors with more finished lineart:
I might just do it the easy way: I just put the heart on the wrong side of the puppette, wich actually makes a little bit of sense (because if you are ready to kill, your heart isn't at the right place (figurely and now also litteraly)) (I also made th heart black so it owuld be easy seable, but I quit like it, so might keep it :))
I also gave it a shot on the right place of the puppete, but as I already thought, the heat is hardly seeable. and the needle looks a bit like a weard tail.
(ow and don't mind the pins, I know they look like antenas now, but I'm going to change that)
the back sprite: the rough line art with basec colors:
I wnated to make a dynamic pose, and I think I kind of suceeded in that. The are some minor thing that bother me, especiall ont the arm, but hopefully I can make them disappear. The only thing that worries me it that the width is 80 pixles(I already had to make it 10 picle smaller or something :p) so I hope it won't be necesairry the make it wider because other whise I'm screwed.
anyway, I would love some comment on this because I want to hear some more oppinions before I continue the front pose.
(The reasion why I'm not posting this on the sprite-treath for CAP11 is that all the other sprites posted their first work when the got all the line art done, so I want to do that too)
ps: does somebody know how much colors you can use?
Your sprites are unspeakably awesome! I'd like you to design a game for Pokemon! Seriously, apart from a couple (like Yanmega) they really are splendid! You speed-paint work is really good, too, particularly the Parasect.
