So I've decided to splice or recolor. It's fun actually, the feeling when you zoom out on your work is awesome. Here are some examples.

Attachment:
Manezy.PNG

This one was my first one. Manectric and Drowzy. I couldn't get the head to look round, but it looks alright, eh?

Attachment:
Linooyena.PNG

This one is my personal favorite. Linoone and Mightyena. The red eye off of Mightyena fit perfectly. The nose, it was the most trouble.

Attachment:
Leafeon Recolor - Glaceon.PNG

This one isn't a splice, but a Leafeon recolor, from Glaceon. It was fun to do, especially when i zoomed out, I was surprised it came out so good.

What do you guys think? Care to comment?

EDIT: I also forgot, Could anyone post suggestions, so i don't get bored. o.o

they look pretty good. the linoone/mightyena kinda just looked like a linoone recolor, tho.... btw, you may want to put transparency in, if you're going to open a shop, or give these to people. just my opinion, tho. good work!!! :-D

I can't get transparency, and I'm doing pretty well as an artist. Once I get arount to buying Photoshop, i'll be in business!

Anyway, the outline on Manezy is nonexistant in some places. Other than that, they're pretty good!

Linooyena is my favorite 1...

I like them all though but the 1 I like the least would be Manezee(Drowzee is spelled like that) & not because of the outlining Mektar mentioned which I agree with...

Oh & though it is probably harder to use then Photoshop, you could get transparent backgrounds with GIMP as well...

okay, while that's true, that you don't need transparency, it's still a good idea (imo).... and as lawence codye said, you can put it in in gimp as well (just go to layers, then add alpha layer, then create alpha layer; use the magic wand on the outside color, and boom, transparency; or you could always just use the select feature to delete stuff). anyways, it's still a good job, Legendary Tamer!!! keep on doing stuff, and you'll probably be better than a lot of the spriters on this site (well, me at minimum lol)

Hey rex, thanks for the support, it made my day. :) I know I will continue spriting. It really is fun.

And I don't know what transparency does, so, I'm just going to keep it in it's tiny canvas in the top left corner until I figure out what transparency does.

Transparency or in other words, Transparent Background makes the background invisible when posting stuff online like for example, my avatar sprite, there was a white background on it then a black background on it & when I finally used what is known as transparency, it shows up black & when I post the picture somewhere or open the file in a program that doesn't edit say the pixels, poof the background is somehow not there...this is cause I used transparency by turning the background the RGB Color Black(R=1, G=1, B=1) which is how it works in a PNG image...GIMP does this with better results easier but by using basically the same method only with layers involved, rex09 basically explained how so I'm done here...

Have no clue if this explained it but I tried so...

I recently got some more done, here they are. Tell me how you like them.

Attachment:
Mudkihita.PNG

I messed up on the lines you call eyes. They are very faint. I forgot to fix it. -.-

Attachment:
Gulpat.PNG


Golbat + Gulpin = Awesome. I really liked doing this one. :D

Attachment:
Plusinun.PNG


Plusle and Minun fusion. It was hard to get Minun's tail to fit where I wanted it.

I have two more. Tell me if you wanna see them.

Plusinun is so so & expected but still fantastic...

Gulpat is my favorite as it is just solid execution with the way you choose to fuse the 2 together, I say they should actually make a pokemon like this 1...

Mudkihita is also very well executed in the way you fused the 2 & tbh I don't have a noticable problem with the lines people call eyes at all, that being said I do see the error though...

& of course I want to see the other 2 "for better or for worse"...I have good things in mind for how good they might look...

Again with the outlines. Other that that, they're getting better for the most part. Do you know how to turn Draw Opaque on and off? Judgeing by Gulpat, you don't. It really helps whey you want Pokeparts to join smoothly.

Ok I dont know what Draw Opaque is, or how to use it. >.> Wanna tell me how?

Here are the other two
Attachment:
Charistoise.PNG

I have to admit, this one looks bad, but good enough to keep
Attachment:
Scicario.PNG

This one is one of my favorites of the patch. It was fun to make.

Legend...I agree with you on Charistoise...

As far as Scicario, it is one of the best in show...

To use Draw Opaque;

- In Paint -

1. Click on Image on the Menu Tab at the top

2. You will see a option without a shortcut command

3. Click on it & a check will appear to the left of it, you are now good to go

4. PROFIT!

This is actually basic knowledge for spriting in MS Paint so be sure to always have it on when doing your thing, it helps & I know why now...

So, I'm thinking of starting a shop. I can do Eggs, Recolors, Pokeballs, Toxic, Inverted, and of course, Splices. Is that enough to open a shop?

yeah, but make sure nobody has that stuff copyrighted (for instance, i know how mektar does his beta inverts; but i can't due to the fact that it's his process). maybe add something that is specifically yours (like my unpopular ice sculptures) to attract attention. and a trainer card, since those are really popular. good luck!!!
