\\\Pokemon Amethyst Pixel Project--PLEASE HELP!///

Aquakip

Mud in my veins
Hello everyone, this game is over on PC and is being restarted by. I am helping and thought of spreading it over to here. I am helping out with this and need you all to help too. Think of it as a fun site project!

AND PLEASE DO NOT SPAM A WHOLE LOT, I DON'T WANT THIS TO BE CLOSED OR DIE BECAUSE OF THAT. :/

(The following post is directly from Wichu, revised by me to make sense to everyone here.)​

Anyway, this means I'm also going to need all the Pokémon resprited to a higher resolution (in this case, 160x160). Obviously, I'm not going to attempt doing this by myself; it would take years

So Wichu was thinking, why not make this a public resource to which anyone can contribute, and anyone can use? It would be selfish of me to keep such a project for my own use; besides, if it's public, people are more likely to help out.

Here are some examples of what Wichu means (He made these in about an hour each a couple of days ago):

redad.gif
gligar.gif


Red is there for size comparison; Don’t you hate it that the official sprites are often not to scale (e.g. Pikachu in 3rd gen)? This Gligar sprite is to scale; have a look at its dex entry (it's surprisingly big). Having the sprites to scale will also make the job a bit easier, since for smaller Pokémon like the aforementioned Pikachu, you wouldn't have to make it much bigger than the D/P sprite. I'm probably not going to use Red's sprite in-game.

Both sprites use 16 colours; Red's are taken from his official artwork, while Gligar's are from its HG/SS sprite.Wichuused 4th gen shading on the Gligar.

He didn't do the backsprite, but Wichu thinks it would suffice to resize and clean up the Platinum backsprites, which is pretty easy.​

He was originally planning to do multiple frames - a 4-frame idle animation, as well as attacking and hurt frames. However, Wichu has decided against that for now, as it would drastically increase the time it would take to complete this, and 99% of people wouldn't have a use for those anyway.

A new sprite resource would be useful for everyone. Existing spriters would have a larger pool of sprites to use for fusions, and would be able to make more detailed sprites. Wi-fi traders would have a different set of sprites to use for their trade threads. ROM hackers would have better sprites to use for their title screens. And game developers would be able to increase their resolution without pixelating everything. Finally, anyone contributing can use this as a chance to improve their sprinting skills and get feedback.

So, do any scratch/pixel-over spriters want to help out? I'm going to post this on other forums too, to try and get a largeish group of volunteers. If we can get around 10-20 people, we should be able to get at least one, probably 2 or 3, sprites done per day between them (if each person makes a sprite per week, which isn't overoptimistic given that a sprite will take an hour or two to complete). This means the whole Pokédex could be complete within a few months. With more people, it could get done faster.

Any comments?

I hope you all decide to help out. Maybe even take a look at the old thread entitled Pokémon Amethyst to see how it used to look. :/

I'd be on board, but you may need to reiterate some things. You want to draw Pokemon to scale using a 160x160 resolution? Some Pokemon still wont fit in these confinements without requiring being scaled down.
 

Turtle Master

May's lover!
I'll help as well but I agree with what Skaisdead said. Pokemon like Wailord are huge.

You Red is 116 pixels tall and roughly 5'6''. That means one pixel is .5 inches. Wailord, in ratio, would be 1142 pixels. That's pretty huge.
 

Aquakip

Mud in my veins
Well, those pokemon would be moreso, fit to the full size of 160x160.

And some ways that it could work around this would maybe be different poses, that allow them to fit in and still be to scale. Make sense?

Thanks for worrying though. Wichu has thought about this already. :/ And thanks for saying you'll help out. it's very appreciated!

Anything.

It goes from Pixel-overs, to scratches, etc.

You could do a Pixel-Art from a Pokemon Card. Sugimori Art. As long as it comes out proportional to the Red up there, it's fine. ^_^

Thanks.

I'd like to present my first official contribution, Breloom.

I hope it meets the standards you were aiming for, because I don't feel like redoing it. Modeled after the official Sugimori artwork.

Hey guys :)
Aquakip, thanks for making the thread while I was busy.

Just to clarify, if a Pokémon is a lot bigger than the trainer, just shrink it until it fits in the 160x160 box. It would be silly to make the huge Pokémon exactly to scale; you wouldn't be able to use them for anything (they wouldn't fit in a game window, and would be very hard to fuse etc).

Oh, and for reference, here are the first bunch of official Pokémon in the regional dex:

If you want to be extra helpful, it would be great if we could work through these first. You don't have to do the Pokémon on this list; go ahead and sprite your favourites. If those happen to be on the list, great :p
Feel free to reserve Pokémon that you like :) As you can see, I'm planning to do the Shinx, Shellos and Aron lines.
Aquakip, could you possibly add a list of Pokémon to the first post, so we can see who's working on which Pokémon, and which ones have already been done?

Anyway, here's a WIP of Aggron. The shading is incomplete; I'm going to work on that.

No, of course not :p
The project is still to remake every single Pokémon; I was just suggesting an order. You don't have to follow it. Breloom will be in the game eventually ;)
 

Aquakip

Mud in my veins
Consider the PA accepted. :)

I've gone ahead and reserved some Pokemon. I wanna do Mudkip, but I'm afraid I won't do him enough justice. :(

So yep. I'm making a Teddiursa one now and will post it soon, along with link those Pokemon to their names. ;)

Reserving Tentacruel, Solrock and Chatot.

Yes I'm the same on Smogon, and talking of Smogon maybe we should cross-link or something? Or keep updating at least.
 

Aquakip

Mud in my veins
Maybe, that would be cool, but could you possibly ask Wichu about that? I'm just helpign with the project. This is actually his.

But I'm sure he'll say yes, just ask him first to make sure he wants that. ^_^

I'm happy that everyone is wanting to help. It's so nice.

Yep, we should keep this organised. The problem is that I haven't had the chance to make a thread there yet...

Anyway, Aron is done :)

A Re-coloured HGSS Pikachu, is it alright?

The point of the project is to make a NEW spriting resource for everyone. If the sprite already exists it sort of defeats the purpose of it.

Edit: Also I would just like to reserve Charmander, Beedrill, and sandslash if I could.

Should I try cleaning it up?

By the way, when you resize a sprite, it's easier to clean up if you use 'Nearest Neighbor' in the resize options.

EDIT: Lairon is now finished. Comments?

Also, Aquakip, you might want to have a look at the Smogon spriting thread and update the list.

I'd love it if you'd try and clean it up Wichu, I just lack the ability to make things rounded D:

The Lairon looks great, but the lower jaw seems a bit too square. That's probably just me though.
