It's pretty good! I like the color scheme, and the pose is quite regal! However, besides what Disco mentioned, there are a couple of things that aren't wrong, but can definitely add depth and stuff.

The two things that strike me are the contrast and the outlines between markings. I've never been a fan of outlines between color zones; Pokemon have them and I think it looks silly. If that's your cup of tea, fine; I recommend at least taking off the outlines and seeing what it looks like that way. :)

As per contrast: contrast is your best friend now. Contrast is what helps the human eye make out shapes, and it can help focus the eye and keep it interested in said shapes. Your shading is very light and the lack of contrast makes it harder to see the depth properly; make the shades have a little more of this wonderful contrast and you'll go far. Color contrast is even better. All of your shades lie on the same hue. If you vary the hue a little - make the shade grayer the darker you go, or perhaps make it yellower or redder or bluer, the grays add contrast and plausibility in the shading; the colors add mood, such as yellow being happy, red angry, blue calm, etc.

Hopefully this helps a bit! :D

@ Disco: Your sprites are sexy and you're the best grayscaler I've ever seen. 'Nuff said. (Although the bulb really should go leftways a tad)



Anyway, here's my sprite! A friend and I are halfheartedly making our own region (the 'games' being Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry). Each of us is making a starter set. This is my grass starter, all scratched. Critique all you want. Also, he doesn't have an official name. Suggestions are <3'd. He's based off a pterodactyl because dinosaurs.
Wow I love it. But The Tail Is A Bit Wierd. I don't really know what else to say though. I don't know what to call it either.



It's Just Something I Did in 10 Minutes. Can Anyone Think Of Names For Them? I know they are tiny.

xD They're great! The Munchlax fusion looks more like...an inflation, if you will. And the Yamma looks like it has the forever alone face. It's looks funny! And the recolor is great, too.


How about this one? It sucks, doesn't it?

You know you have to critique the sprite above you also, right? Anyways, it looks good, but some part of it looks a little...unnatural. Like how part of it's face is blue, but it just transitions into that silverish-white, that looks a little wrong.


How about this one, guys?

on you sprites I would recommend not resizing the image and keep it the actual size that it starts with. Also i you right click the image you are trying to post you can click open image in a new tab and get the link from there. Then all you would have to do is add [IMG][/IMG] and just put the link inbetween the [IMG]'s

A couple more suggestions, don't leave all that open space on you sprite image, it is best to move the sprite to the top left of the image and reduce the size so it takes up less space.

Also on the darkrai and blaziken fusion make sure to recolor the lines of of the sprite so they are not all black. If you look on any sprite you will notice that the line art is not completely black and that it has shades in it aswell
