Hey all! Let's get the Sprites up and running for the newest piece of artwork provided again by Pipotchi!

Pipotchi I think I saw you post some other reference material for the prevo somewhere? Could you link it me? I can add it to the OP :)

EDIT: Pip also created this bit of artwork to help too!

Sprite Rules
  • Sprites should be inspired by the winning designs from the Art Poll. It does not need to be an exact rendition of every detail of the designs; "artistic license" is granted to all spriters. However, drastic deviation from the selected art designs is discouraged.
  • All sprites (front and back) can have a maximum size of 96x96.
  • All sprites (front and back) must have a complete, unbroken, distinguishable outline. It does not need to be a black outline, but it must be clearly distinguishable from the adjacent interior colors of the sprite
  • No action effects, move effects, environment effects or additional objects can be rendered on or around the pokemon.
  • Sprites must be in PNG format.
  • Use 8-bit truecolor (aka 8-bit RGB) or less. This does NOT mean 256 color mode.
  • Use transparent backgrounds.
  • All sprites must be scratch sprites that are completely original works by the spriter. Fusions of other sprites or pixel-overs of other artist's lineart (including the main design) are not allowed.
  • Do not alter, fuse, recolor or otherwise modify another spriter's submission unless the original artist explicitly gives permission.
  • All sprites (front and back) must use roughly the same size and pose when compared to each other.

Final Submission Post

All spriters must make a final submission post conforming to the sprite rules (listed above) and the following:
  • The post must have "Final Submission" (in bold) as the first line, with the sprites at the top, and any additional description or comments (if applicable) below them.
  • Final submissions must contain a minimum of 4 sprites - Front Normal, Front Shiny, Back Normal, Back Shiny. If spriters choose to include gender differences (Male and Female versions of each) then 8 sprites must be submitted. Gender differences are NOT required.
  • Only submit ONE PNG that contains all the submitted sprites. Please do not submit separate images for every sprite. One "cutsheet" makes it easier for mods to track submissions and ensure each complete set of sprites stay intact.
  • Only make one (1) final submission post.

All legal final submissions will be included in the sprite poll.

Advice for Spriters

There are 8 possible sprites in a Sprite Set:
  • Front Normal Male
  • Front Normal Female
  • Front Shiny Male
  • Front Shiny Female
  • Back Normal Male
  • Back Normal Female
  • Back Shiny Male
  • Back Shiny Female
In most cases, spriters post a Front Normal sprite first. Once feedback comes in and the poll nears, they make the other sprites. You do not have to make different Male and Female sprites. Typically there are only minute differences between male and female sprites, but some spriters make noticeable changes between genders, which is also fine. Shiny coloring is completely up to the spriter to choose, even if the design artist posted suggested shiny coloring with their art design submission. Please look at your transparent sprites against different colored backgrounds, not just white. In Pokémon Showdown, the sprite will be displayed on multiple background colors in battle.

Let's get this done! You've got a few days at least at the minimum!

This is the version I've posted on Discord. I'm currently in the process of touching up the leaves and limbs on the front sprite, and then I'll move on to fixing up the back one.

I've been working on these sprites over the last week, updating them and getting feedback on Discord. I'm getting close to submitting these!

I'm interested in whether I should stick with the classic shiny scheme, go with something carrot-themed, or do something completely different. Suggestions for tweaks to the palettes also are welcome. Suggestions in general are welcome! ^_^

Thanks to Plazzap and StephXPM for their feedback on the sprites! :)
Bit late but I just wanna say these submissions are all so amazing T_T its so neat to see it in sprite form. Quanyails i think the idea of the bottom shiny with the pink bow as the main change is definitely interesting, but i dont think the pink looks as vibrant as the red of the original. maybe you could experiment with the bow being cyan like the body of shiny jumbao? that could maybe stand out a little more since its a contrasting color to the orange body.
StephXPM this is amazing, great job. the stance is wonderful too.

I'm giving you guys a 48 hour warning on these sprites (maybe a bit longer cause that puts it into Saturday morning and I will be sleeping). But be final submitted for then!
Final Submission

Gonna go with the orange shiny! Nemmy, S. Court, Okamu, Pipotchi, Plazzap, and QxC4eva helped with that decision. :D It's not unprecedented to have 'mons with the same regular palette to have differing shiny palettes, if that is a concern for anyone: e.g., Charmeleon -> Charizard, Purrloin -> Liepard, and Ferroseed -> Ferrothorn.

Other changes:
  • Made the front legs brighter than the back legs so the pose isn't as confusing.
  • Fixed outline issues.
  • Bumped up the saturation of the shiny's bow.


Pipotchi, I gave a cyan bow a shot. I wasn't too fond of the complementary color contrast between the orange and the cyan. What are your thoughts? This is what it looks like with a cyan bow. Let's talk more about it on Discord, too!
