    Default Rate my Recolors and Splices

    Ok so I stumbled across a spriter's guide on another site looking for something else. I decided to try my hand at spriting and did some recolors and splices. I wonder what you all think.

    First with the Recolors:



    Some Splices:



    And here is a Noctowl with a hat:



    Well, what do you all think?

    Terrible!

    I am just kidding, they are all great, espeically sense you are new, you don't want to see my first one, Lol.

    In all I would give an 8.5/10. =)

    By the way, here is my latest, the 3rd one I have ever done in my life... yours are much better than this.

    Oh, and I forgot to say, my favorite is Owlking.

    Your splices made me want to splice again. Here is my newest one... still not as good as yours, I don't think

    @Red G: Thanks a lot, my three favorites are Magneot, Owlking and the Hitmonlee Swellow splice

    @Ken The Pen: As I said, Owlking is one of my favorites and he is my first splice. Though, I can't seem to see your splice.

    EDIT:

    Some more splices



    Well...

    Thank you, but again I can't see your splice. How are you putting it in your post? What I do is upload the sprites to my own album and then use the bb code in the album. Try that.

    There are a few very basic errors, but don't worry, every single spriter makes them when they're just starting off. The first problem is the colours - they're default colours, and it is strongly advised that they aren't used for spriting as they have unpleasant contrasts and offer little variety. Instead, try double clicking on the colour, going into 'define custom colours' and picking one for yourself. On the shade bar on the right, move the cursor down so it's nearer the bottom, this will be your darkest shade. Draw a dot on the canvas in that colour. Then, double click on it again, and make another slightly lighter shade, and make a dot. Keep doing so until you have enough shades to fully recolour your sprite. Your sprite will have a more smooth looking colour scheme, and will look more authentic, like this:


    Sorry to sound critical, but it's an important step to becoming a good spriter. Your splices look a lot better than the recolours, I personally like the top one, and wouldn't have guessed it was done by a beginner. Overall, keep it up, the fusions are brilliant for a beginner but the recolours need some work. Best of luck. :)

    BuizelBoy you know your shit ;)

    And that's some very nice work you have there! Overall, I wouldn't have known it was from a beginner!

    8/10 for an excellent job with some minor inconsistencies.
    Kudos to IW for making an awesome avvie of my favourite Pokemon!
