Aaaall right then, sorry about being away (again) xD

Until JSM's back, I'll be taking his place, BronySpriter c: So for now, could you do a Kingler recoloured as Scizor, please? Don't forget to try and replicate the patterns!


Can I give suggestions for them to do?

Okay, I have finished.

I know the shading on one of his little "bumps" is off. I couldn't find a good color on Scizor to shade it.

Ah, I'm afraid not ^^; I go through a selection of Pokemon that I feel would provide a little thought rather than simple 'change this colour to that and we're done!' thoughts c: It helps us improve, that way!

Okay, I have finished.

It looks good! You can tell it's a Scizor recolour c:

For the awkward bumps colouring, that's alright! That can happen a lot while spriting. If you can't find the right shade for it, then I suggest that you create it yourself. If you have the Windows Vista+ version of Paint, assuming you're using it, then you can simply select the closest colour that you have to create which ever shade you want, and then select the 'edit colours' option. After that, you can alter it to make it the shade you want. If you're using an earlier verison of Paint, then you'll need some time to create the colour yourself from scratch.

The spots on the claws do look a little odd. Kingler's right (our right) claw's spot is a bit far forward. If you can imagine the rest of the claw behind it, you'd actually move the spot a few pixels backwards, so maybe not all of the yellow spot would show. The left claw, however, looks great!

Of course! We'll start with recolours first - could you do a Zweilous recoloured as a Girafarig?

At first, I wasn't sure what a Zweilous was, but then I knew it was one of the 5th Gen Hydradragon Pokémon. I knew it made sense to have Zweilous with Girafarig's colors because they both have two heads.



Now, I did each head with different heads of the Girafarig. Was that a good idea?

I get that feeling sometimes when I see people mention various Pokemon xD Makes me think 'huh, what Pokemon's tha-- oh! yes! that one!'. It's been happening more and more frequently recently D:

Yep, I like that. In terms of patterns, I think you've got it more or less spot on! The only comment I have is that the line splitting the yellow and the brown apart is pretty straight and looks unnatural. The same goes for underneath its fur; it should be more circular, following its body. Otherwise, very well done!

Moving swiftly onwards, could you do a Lumineon recoloured as Masquerain?

I really like that! I only have one thing to say that you should maybe look back into, and that's the marking on the tail. It looks like it's a separate object wrapping around it, like a second layer, and it looks like it's because of the pixel-wide bump on where you've redone the outline of the tail. It should look alright with the outline of the yellow part being a pixel downwards, to make it look more like the pattern is part of the tail rather than a separate layer. Otherwise, that's more or less brilliant! If you're happy with what you've made, then I suggest that we move onto another recolour; Zebstrika as Purugly, please? c:

Here's the updated Kingler:

Ah, I think I got my lefts and rights mixed up xD' Sorry about that, haha.

The changes you've made make the sprite look better c: Just like with what you did to Kingler's right claw, you should move the spot on Kingler's left claw a bit further back. However, you've demonstrated that you can move patterns (the pincer spot, in this case) backwards, and I think that's great in itself! If you're ready to move to your final recolour, then could you do a Kyogre recoloured as Thundurus, please?

I changed the marking on the tail. Does this look better?


And...

Ah, my bad. For the first one, I hadn't really looked properly at Pikachu's sprite. I thought that the longer line on the tail (on the left-hand side) was originally straight without the slight bump it has. But yep, both versions look good!

Your Zebstrika recolour looks awesome, too! I don't have anything else to say xD~

Let's move on to mixes c: Could you make a mix of Flaafy and Swoobat, please? You decide on the base c:


Sure, as soon as I get back from my vacation in colorado.

Alright, have a fun trip!
