    Gonna reserve Mega Aerodactyl when it's officially revealed.

    I should probably work more on Kalos Pokémon and less on Mega formes, but they're just a lot easier to make given that there's already animation references in the original sprite. When we get more in-game footage after the release, the Kalos mons will be easier.

    EDIT: It's revealed, but I'm going to wait for a clearer picture before starting.

    Look at other bird sprites, Pidgeotto and Swellow may be helpful for you to figure this all out.

    elcheeso we still tag teaming this?

    [​IMG]

    I used your colurs but noscium sprite and I think it looks good.

    another Noscium work, that I shrunk down cause this dumb thing I swore would be fake is only 2 feet tall.
    [​IMG]

    I'll probably wait for more images of this dumb bird at the back or someone could draw it up for me too.

    Alright, Layell, I would very much like to apologize. I originally thought I could help out here, but it appears all I am doing is hindering. If you want me to stop spriting, let me know and I will, but in that case could I just do work on recolors or shinies?

    Hello,

    I have attempted a Skrelp for you all (interestingly, I was typing as Layell was, but I have changed it ever so slightly), but most importantly a terrible backsprite included!
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It is slightly bigger than Horsea, as it's supposed to be.

    The backsprite needs help (silly headflaps) but I'm just not arts-y enough to figure it out.
    This is further than I got with Spritzee, so there's a moral victory there somewhere.

    I hope you sort of like it.

    edit: sorted an issue

    [​IMG] How's this for it? I have to edit the flaps atop it's head, but it's a first draft and sprite.

    I drew it the same size as Scizor's sprite, because they seem the same heightwise, but it seems slightly small compared to Skrelp up above

    I probably should make the outline more black also, it's looking a little vague atm

    I'm not going to make a back sprite or animations for this, but it should be a good start for anyone that is willing to do them.

    Hi! I know there already are sprites for Tyrantrum, but I'm still making an animating sprite of it :
    [​IMG]
    It's still an early WIP, and since I don't plan on doing a back sprite of it, I'm not sure that's really interesting for this project.

    Very cool man, but what's with the black patch near the base of the tail?

    Also, anyone mind if I make a hideous attempt at mega dactyl before e professionals take over?

    Here, I made a small Edit to Fletchinder. Just showing the Legs slightly, and a bit more detail on the wings. http://sta.sh/0vmsr0epim6
    Also, I would be glad if someone could convert it into an Image, still having troubles with that. Sorry.

    Never mind Mega Aerodactyl, it seems Mega Meloetta may be confirmed. If it's revealed anytime soon (as I'm still waiting for a better reference on Aero), I'm cancelling the former reservation in favour of the latter. At the rate things are being leaked right now, that seems pretty plausible.

    Could people that are making sprites please do the backs as well. This goes double for animations. Emulating someone else's style and technique is not particularly fun, or quick.

    from #xysprites, the following colloquy log:

    [7:54pm] Legitimate_Username: Anyways reptile, I use Pivot Animator to animate sprites.
    [7:54pm] Legitimate_Username: There's a good tutorial on YouTube I can find.
    [7:54pm] Wyverii: I use graphicsgale.
    [7:55pm] Wyverii: You could also use photoshop, or anything you know how to animate in.
    [10:24 pm] Quanyails: Other than GraphicsGale, I hear Adobe Flash is a useful, if a bit expensive.

    Further technical questions regarding this sort of thing should probably be investigated elsewhere. Unfortunately, this is not a tutorial thread.

    Thank you!
