Grand Emperor of Zelron looks better man, but could you remove dithering on the backsprite? metal textures rarely use dithering in the BW style. the line on top of the bolt also looks odd, you could either tilt it a bit more or make it totally flat. having one break in the line looks off TheAetherPlayer shiny looks good!
I may do shiny Araquanid in the near future, but I noticed the normal sprite has some colors wrong, may I modify it a bit ? (They are brown thingies in our sprite, while in the 7G sprite and official artwork these are more gray-ish)
Also leparagon when will the docs be updated ? Not to stress you or anything, but I'd be eager to see my shiny sprites on the sheet, and it would be more practical to know what is already done and what is not ^^'
