the colours don't really go together and I don't see the shading

07-13-2005, 07:02 PM
...I can recomend my MSPaint guide. It might help.

The colors do NOT go together. combine that with little or no shading, and it comes up as one rather poor sprite. PLEASE learn about making your own colors- the pallete MSPaint gives you is crap. Total crap. And people keep using it anyway.... :ermm:

Ok Ok i know! I didnt really put much thought into it :oops: :oops: here i did a little more, i might recolor some more sprites when i get more experienced. practice makes perfect! K here it is:


EDIT:crap! your right! now that i look at the first one compared to this, it does suck! yes, i know. I still need a ton more. I hope D2 isnt in a criticizing mood today... if he ever isnt :confused:

Just saying... those two sprites look exactly the same.

07-13-2005, 07:52 PM
I added shading to the 2cnd one... :susp: it might be ur cpu, cuz mine screws up other peep's IMGs but maybe u just didnt look closely or summ :eh:

No they don't. The second one has brighter shades of the same color, with a lot more shading. Your new one looks much better Herp, no offense but I hated the first one. It was too dark.

Edit: I just relized that this is my 100th post! not a big milestone, but I'm happy. Yipee!

07-13-2005, 07:54 PM
it's ok! Bt i guess you can do better with those colors!

07-13-2005, 08:46 PM
Happy 100th post! and TTTT, i made it out of boredom. I randomly selected colors that i thought looked cool, and threw them together and got this. Thus making the sprite. I honestly spent barely ANY time on it l0ol. But im happy the way my first sprite came out :happy:

Its not too bad for a first try.Just the colors don't go too well...
Still pretty good,though.But,TMTS is right.You should try reading his tutorial.
LOL,D.2 always has an opinion he likes to share.Mostly criticism,sometimes compelments.He can spot the slightest of imperfections,keen eye he has.
Its still funny to read his posts. :tongue:

07-13-2005, 11:07 PM
Actually, that was a joke :oops: i LOVE reading his posts, they make me crack up :crackup: D2, CRITICIZE ME!!!!!! MYWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! :twisted:

As requested. I won't even look at the first one. Let's compare the second one to the original sprite for a creative new edge:

Let's start with the colors. The green looks like it came straight from your nose. The black...well...wait tell me why the black has a pink outline. Dark colors with light outlines look REALLY bad. Change the outline to black, or grey where the highlights are. Wait, what's this? You took out the highlights? WHY? I can also see (*points to the head*) that you missed a spot. Next, if you're going to change the black of the ears, considering the black is there to show that the ears are deep, please use te same skin tone as the body (that ugly green). I can also see that you trashed the outline on the right cheek and left front leg. Those should still be there. Overall, it's not the worste I've seen, but it definately needs improvement.

:crackup: :crackup: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: I know. U should post in my other thread after people have posted some work/ideas. Im sure thay'd all love to hear your productive criticizm :razz: Well, anyway, just for fun, im gonna start a new delcatty altogether. its gonna PWN [hopefully xD] So be excited or ILL DEVOUR YOUR MORTQAL SOU- whoops did i talk like that again? :oops: just ignore it, i just doze off now and then. :sleepy: BUT I WONT WHEN I RULE THE WO- oops there it goes again :neutral: Well, ill set to work on that sprite, and hopefully be done tonight. SO I CAN DESTROY EVER- dangit! Stop!!!

I'm not sure if it was green, brown, or yellow it was you were going for, but this is generally what a shaded sprite should look like. Rather than starting over and adding shading yourself, I'd really just recommend starting over completely. :tongue:

07-14-2005, 12:15 AM
Wow, TMTS, thats EXACTLY [ i mean EXACTLY] what i vwas going for... phreeky mind reader.... well, here's my second attempt on a delcatty recolor. I admit, for the body color, i used the invert tool. BUT i tweaked it so the shading was right :hungry: And i Tried to make the headpiece n tail fire, ti make it look, well, firy :oops: I know this is probably worse than the other one, but i cant tell cause im exhausted and i forgot to take my medicine [yes, i take medicine <_<]. So tell me what you think, and i knnow this is really bad but right now im entertaining myself. ill get into real work on my idea thread

EDIT: oops, i forgot to post the actual picture, well here it ishttp://img70.imageshack.us/img70/5992/cyberflamedelcatty8dg.png

D.2, I used to hate reading your critism, but SPM is right IT'S HALARIOUS! and Herp, that sprite you just did........well let's just says that with the colors you used, I can't tell what pokemon it is. no offense.

07-14-2005, 01:35 AM
xD i was barely in this world just then when i made it, but now ive had my burger king! And i dont blame you for not knowing what it was :crackup: Its supposed to be like a cyber-delcatty with a flame headpiece. i REALLY did it in 3 minutes on a computer im not used to, so it didnt turn out like id like it to.

07-14-2005, 04:47 AM
Sorry to double post.

I did another one :hungry: This time i put a little more thought and work into it. And wevery time i look back after making another sprite, the new one always looks better. Im guessing its a good thing. This idea came from me not liking any of the aqua guys, so i decided to aqua-tize a magma. in the middle of it, i decided aquas are bad guys, so i changed the aqua symbol to one of my own :oops: Well, hope ya like it!:http://img344.imageshack.us/img344/39/aquaheroherp4oh.png
EDIT:lol I just made a few last second touchups. If someone can tell me what it is, theyll win a prize! :hungry: ok har way goew maties! Shiver me timbers!

07-14-2005, 03:03 PM
That sprite is much better than the Delcatty. There's shading and the outlines are recolored, and the colors go together well.
Also, your minor touch-up was the characters belt buckel :wink:

07-14-2005, 11:59 PM
OK my first banner! I spent like hours on it, though the conversation may have been going a little too far... :oops: Weil :crackup: , here it is:http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/8601/finallydonew00t0fo.png

xD mmz3 chars and Omega Ulima throwing insults back n forth... classic. I spent 2 hours on omega alone o.0
