Wow, those are good. I wonder if I'm doing any better?



It would be nice for you guys to tell me what you think of them, because I want to do well in this challenge. And yes, the lineart on the last one is how I did the others. I firstly clean it up, then make my canvas bigger and copy it over, off the frame. Then I redo it, bit by bit. Works so far.

Pixely (Pokedex #14837)
Electric-type Pokemon

Pixely is created when attempting to save art as JPG.  The red pixely distorts, and as it evolves, Green and Blue pixely's begin to mutant out of Red.  Found only in the gardens of n00bs in the evening when doing their homework and decide to give MSPaint and pixel art a try.

I actually think making an evolving Pokemon out of ones avvy is a great starting point. Especially like this one which is a version of the avvy rather than the avvy itself.

hmmm...evolving scarab

4. Water can't effect it... its a rock...
 
I beleive most rock pokemon in any pokemon game i have ever played are weak to water and grass!
 
grass i haven't a clue why but water definately if you use basic geography... water moves into cracks within the rock, freezes overnight, the water expands, pushing the rock out and making cracks, eventually over time the rock shatters completely.
 
not the best pokemon ever ^_^

The colors are just there to separate the parts. I don't know what color it will be in the end.

i think you are getting farther away from the style than the first one.  there is little to no dithering, no selout, lack of contrast, etc on yours, and those things are some of the basic essentials of the pokemon sprites.

I'm sorry, but all I see is a purple penis.  Wow, my heads in the gutter!  No but really, it's the one-eyed monster.   
 
Edit:  Oh i'm not seeing things.  It's supposed to look like a penis!   Hot.

They're called Woolly Mammoths.  It's really cute, but the style is all wrong for a pokemon.

Looking good, I especially like the 2nd one.

The shading on the head of the 3rd one looks a bit off..
Maybe make the 3rd one look more agressive. Most pokemon go from cute to agressive so it would be more fitting

Well spotted - it is a colour reduce. I'm assuming that's OK for rough sketches, as long as the final piece is hand-pixelled?
 
I mean, I've also done a bunch of rough pen-and-paper sketches to come up with ideas, but that doesn't have an impact on the validity of the finished work based on said sketches, does it?

dont post the color reductions here...  now all you are doing is getting suspicion towards your art.  just pixel it by hand and use the original as a reference, color reductions just hurt you because then you dont learn style, you just learn basically paint by numbers.

if you make a sketch yourself, then trace it, dont just color redux that either.  your new enough to the scene that you actually need to put the work into it and learn how to do it before you start taking such huge shortcuts.

edit: correction, you arent new here, so you should know better.  no, color reductions 99% of the time are never allowed or tolerated.
