His eye kept bothering me, so:
-Reverted left eye back to Arkeis' design
-Moved right eye up one pixel
-Thickened his horn to accommodate the eye changes
-Made his tail a bit bulkier to fix the perspective
-Tried to make his tail fins more like the in-game model
This is N-kin's Xerneas with 15 colors. It doesn't look too bad, but the antlers might be a bit messy to animate, even more so than they already are. I only did the front sprite to see what everyone else thinks. The original palette uses 27 colors.
Now that I'm off from school, I may have time to help out a bit with this project. I noticed Mega Gyarados' face looked off, so I tweaked the line art of the head and face and tried to soften some of the dark outlines. I also took a crack at the shiny palette and got it to look nice with 15...
Scorpio: In the back sprite, move his eye closer to the front of his face so that the frontmost pixel of his eye is right above the corner of his mouth. Also, the entire part of his front that can be seen from underneath the tail should be his underbelly. For his shiny sprite, the color you...
For the shiny sprite, I brightened his eyes and darkened the shadow on the underbelly. I'm not going to add a tongue since his mouth area is busy enough as it is. Maybe he could stick his tongue out if he's going to be animated.
So here's the deal with the teeth:
Finished the back sprite and made some changes to the front sprite.
-Lowered his head and tail closer to the ground to make him less lopsided
-Added more shading
-Changed his leaf to make it shorter
I tried to make his teeth long since his attack is supposed to be high. But if it's...
-Made him larger
-Tweaked the cone on his tail
-Changed the stripes on the underbelly to match the artwork
-Made his teeth more visible
If all is well, I'll start working on the backsprite.
Shanimanim: That is incredible. The only problem I see is that its way too detailed for pokemon art. Cut back on some of the shading and define/eliminate some lines so that it'll be easier to interpret as a sprite. I'm mostly referring to the ridge on its head and the tiny spikes. Neither of...
Sorry about your sprite getting disqualified. I think someone should have let you know that your sprite didn't meet the requirments though.
I'm kind of bummed out about not being able to finish my sprite, but honestly I thought Wyverii's was the obvious choice to begin with.
