Whoops I suppose I may have messed up to with Helioptile. Didn't check to see if it was animation ready and animated it. Just wanted to try and kick-start some more activity lol. I'll have to reanimate when its sprite is approved.
But when it comes to Honedge, couldn't it be...
So I tried to tweak Honedge a bit. Even though we don't really see a shine in the 3D model, I feel as though some shine on the blade will make the sprite look better. Also, I fixed the back of the sheath. Yet again let me know what you guys think and what should be tweaked further.
I see what Clay means in that the outlines aren't always kept clean. You seem to have cleaned a little with your fixes but I honestly like it better than mine. I especially like the ear fix. I'll do some work on the rare animation and send it on in here.
I'm so glad to see some more activity on this thread! We've seen the effect of people being busy with this thread and how long we go without a single post. That's perfectly fine! I mean I too have been busy. And I think it's time I finally contribute something big (it's been a while for me) and...
(lol I just thought about Sylveon but we'll just keep pushing that til the end of spriting)
But I searched Deviantart for potential poses for Greninja. A few have been proposed in the past but I'll just put them here. Again these are purely for POSE-SAKE!
And that last one is you know...
Princess I've been meaning to show you these.
I made some tail edits to Swirlix because it always seemed weird having the tail moving off to the side. Especially after looking at its models:
I think we need to redo Vivillon. I know we've gotten far with it, but its sprite has been bothering me for some time now.
I put it in the style square or what I think was a gift from....someone who I don't remember, but it clearly has something that makes it different. One of them is...
Could we fix Kanga's mouth? It's really bothering me, and haven't been able to say anything. Considering we're basing it off the HGSS sprite, perhaps reference the 2nd frame sprite from HGSS:
It's skin looks weird like that next to the red of its mouth.
I think Goomy's outlines and mouth should be adjusted to look more like the other two's sprites. Compare their mouths, Goomy's black and the others a lighter purple. They look very different. I know it may have something to do with it being animated, but I think it should be fixed.
