Sticky Sun/Moon Sprite Project: Dawn of a New Day

View attachment 67905

Sandygast. I have no idea what the mouth is supposed to look like from behind... I realized after starting that even the reveal trailer doesn't show the back view. So until we have better references, this is my best guess, which I got by reversing the front sprite and erasing the eyes because laziness

Also, I'm in the middle of some minor QC on Fomantis and Lurantis

EDIT: updated back sprite
Just to assist on this, the newest Japanese trailer shows the backs for Sandygast and Palossand (plus Type:Null and a lot of others)

calling dibs on type null (so odd yet epic) and Alolan Raticate :P

if i finish fixing Turtonator and doing Zygarde form backsprites, i wanna work on the yellow heart dragon too xD
 
So... after viewing and being horrified by both the new English and Japanese trailers, here are my predictions:
  1. The plot involves some sort of alternate dimension and/or humans-fusing-with-Pokémon mechanic never before seen in the series
  2. Some of the antagonists and supporting characters are blood relatives somehow
  3. The Poké Finder is the closest thing we'll ever get to a Pokémon Snap sequel
Also, Type: Null and UB-01 are the very definition of horror... "something that shouldn't be, but is."

Just to assist on this, the newest Japanese trailer shows the backs for Sandygast and Palossand (plus Type:Null and a lot of others)
Thanks, viper. I'll edit Sandygast's back later, then.


Alongside the new trailers, there's this screenshot of what looks like a humanoid Cutiefly evolution. In case it gets confirmed, I'd like to reserve it.

Type: Null front sprite first. i swear it was actually easier to sprite Perfect Zygarde. and the color count of Type: Null is unfathomably painful. couldn't afford any shades for the green front legs and had to use black for the outline of the main body T^T really gonna need feedback on this xD

backsprite coming soon

also i made Alolan Raticate this morning when my professor couldn't make it to class xD
alolan raticate.png
backsprite coming soon too

tbh i sprited Jangmo-o, both front and back xD but exactly the time i finished it, i saw Wobble's message about reserving it. good luck to Wobblebuns though :D

EDIT: done with Null's backsprite. also made a quick edit to the front sprite cuz i accidentally had one unnecessary color. removed it and used that color slot for the green on its helmet

EDIT (again): done with A. Raticate

here you go
zygarde 10.png


also Wobblebuns since there's a new trailer with the back view of Solgaleo in full range of motion, I think it'd be great if you used that as reference if you plan on tweaking your backsprite :D

p.s: noticed some stuff I need to fix on 10%'s backsprite. but i'm out for the night so will update tomorrow :D

So I've been frustrated with this sprite for a while and I'm not liking how it's coming along. If I can't get it to something I like within a week or so, I'll probably drop it :/
Perhaps I could help.
I actually reworked the shape of the front sprite a little & added in some elements from the Mudsdale sprite leparagon made:
Mudsdale.png

It isn't a lot but I thought it would be of benefit.

Pikafan2000 's edit seemed like a step in the right direction! i thought i might add mine here so you could maybe use it as reference too aside from the official art, since our sprites have more similar poses as compared to the official art:
mudsdale.png
notice how the face is slightly slimmer and how the eyes are more rounded out. the mane of my sprite didn't focus too much on the "poofiness" of Mudsdale's hair so don't mind that part; i think it's better that you slightly defined the mane, although i do think it could be rounded out better :)

dibs on Rockruff's evolution day form xD already made a front sprite
interested in doing night but not calling it yet in case someone wants to sprite that :)

Would like to state that I am willing and eager to do a Lugarugan form. Both are equally appealing, so I'll take whichever one the next person doesn't reserve, Kanto-Fossil-Maniac-style.
yo dude you cool with working on the night form? xD i already reserved the midday form (check my previous post xD)

Edited Sandygast again, finally. The missing pebble is now present, and hopefully, the silhouettes of the front and back aren't so eerily similar.

leparagon The new garde dog front is great, but I agree that the back could use a bit of work. Likewise, Type: Null looks awesome, and imo it isn't immediately obvious that you're running up against the colour limit (if the shiny makes it any worse, though, we might have another Xerneas situation to deal with). The back sprite seems rather odd, though. I feel that the "butt" is too high and should drop down slightly, while the tail is connected at a strange angle.


Since all I have reserved is Oricorio, I'm contemplating doing QC on Stufful and Bewear in lieu of leparagon, as he has a load of other things on his plate. Now that the XY Sprite Project is finished (or rather, I'm finished with the XY Sprite Project huehue), I might just take a break from spriting for the time being.

thanks pom! qc is highly appreciated. and yeah I forgot to mention that I wanted to fix Null's back a bit too. the tail height tipped me off then I realized how high its ass was xD

I'm going to keep HnD's final Mudsdale sprite, I appreciate all the posts commenting on it. I'll see about addressing any changes at the launch of Sun/Moon.

Pikafan2000 please see the first post and consider sending me a spriter application : )

Still far from perfect, but better than my last version I think. Main changes are to the mane, but other areas got pixel pushed too. I also kinda just want to say that lep's version has an incorrect head shape, as Mudsdale has a rounded "Roman" nose/snout, whereas lep gave it a very defined dip that just doesn't exist.

My version of Jangmo-o :>

I know the vid you're talking about! Ugh, should've bookmarked that or something...I can't seem to find it now @_@ Can you link the video please?

EDIT: I would also like to reserve Grubbin, heheh.

EDIT 2: Nvm leparagon, I found it!
