    Well, um, welcome to my second spriting thread. I'm Vavavoom, and, like, I sprite x3. lol.

  2. Very, very nicely done-especially your ribbons.
    However, to give constructive criticism, many of your sprites lack the lighting source/shadow emphasis.

    Take Tracey for example. Much of his clothing doesn't reveal a single light source (his hands are also kinda...off XD). Well, enough of my minor C&C; I think you're doing great on spriting. :)

    Hm. :/ You're right. I had trouble doing him. I don't know what I did, but the sprite didn't turn out as good as I thought it would. Anyway, thanks. Oh and thanks for the ribbon comment. <3 I'm proud of them. : D They have that Vavavoom touch in them. O:
  4. Ah, why hello there Vava! ;D I see you've improved your spriting ablilty, and I've come to give you some wonderful comments and criticism on your sprites! Anything for a friend!

    Uh...first off, you posted that mushroom Fakemon twice! I kind of like how the mushroom Fakemon looks sort of annoyed or sleepy, but it kind of reminds me of Breloom and Jumpluff. :/

    The grass type badger is really cool! It looks sort of huggable though, so maybe it could be a two-stage Pokemon like Hippopotas or Tangela? Perhaps it could evolve into a big, fierce badger with long claws! You'll need some sort of attribute to enforce the fact that it's grass type, like maybe mossy fur or something?

    I think the black bug Fakemon should have atleast two legs, so that it can actually grab onto stuff and land! :D It looks really cool, I would love for it to exist. :3

    I really like the big fat weird fly thing, because it looks lovable and cute! I don't seen any real problem with the sprite because it has a nice design.

    I don't really like the orca Fakemon very much, because those poor things look like they would have trouble swimming in water without fins! And..what's that grey stuff on the big orca? Barnacles? Foam? Either way, that looks nice.

    I think Tracy could use a little shading on his shorts and shirt, aswell as some weight loss exercises. xD Shirts hang loose and aren't exactly adjacent with the pants, but Tracy's shirt looks like it's glued to his body. Jessie looks pretty though, good work! :3

    Ribbons aren't my feild of specialty, so I won't comment on them.

    Hm! Those are pretty good. My favorite is the big Pink ribbon. Your skills are impressive. You should try opening a shop. I'd request something :)
    Tracy's body seems too big for his head though. And his shirt is all boxy. Otherwise it's great.

    Thanks : D. They're called callosities. <~ They're stuff that can be found on Right Whales.

    Yeah. :/ I kind of messed up that sprite. However, I think I did well on everything above his arms. Anyway, I'll edit it later. o:

    Really? Well, I didn't know if the size was okay... But it looks right to me. x:

    These are really niclely done sprites, i really like how your scratches look really professional and of course your ribbons are always great. on the trainer sprites they look alright but the tracy's legs to straight and not realistic.

    I love the lickitung-like one. It's amazing.

    Vavavoom ...

    Hehe, thanks ^^. I used to be awful, in spriting, before... but now, I'm still a beginner, but heh, I know how it works. :3

    Yeah. :/ As I said, everything bellow his arms is messed up.

    Thanks, pupu. :333~ -hugs-

    The Lickylicky evo is really well done. Probably your best scratch. You have enough people telling you about how the shading is off on the trainer sprites. Just out of curiousity, what is the first trainer sprite?? And you already know, but I absolutely adore the ribbons. You should add the medals from those ones into your shop. Oh and the christmas wreath thing is pretty well done, I don't really see anything wrong with it. <33

    Good Job overall

    Thanks. : D Lickking turned out better than I thought. Like, yeah. I like its tongue. x: Oh and the first trainer is Medea. Yeah, Medea from SPPf. <~ Cool, heh? x33

    very nice of course the ribbons own

    but if i critisize anything its the shading on your scratch pokemon, the shading is too simplistic and lacks detail, and therefore makes them look flat

    hope that helps ~
  13. Vavavoom

    Vavavoom ...

    Oh, okay ^^. Are you talking about all of them, though? Or, like, most of them?
  14. Magicute

    Magicute KKIIIIIIIIIIIII...!!

    The ribbons are really beautiful and colorful.
    The deisigns of that is wonderful.
  15. Vavavoom

    Vavavoom ...

    Thank you very much, Magicute. :3

    ANWYAY. <3 I have something new~ 8D


    It's Jessie in her contest outfit. Well, normally, her outfit is orange+yellow+yeah, but I decided to make it purple+pink. : D C+C, please.

    PurpleMew no promises

    Love the ribbons vava they are fantastic and your scratch sprites are great aswell [ Dust bunny lol ]

    But like nearly everyone else said you need to improve your shading so the viewer can tell where the light source is coming from.

    Oh and your new jessie sprite is great but the colour of her glasses is dull try some bright colours like light yellow and a light purple; that would look nice

    But over all great sprites keep up the good work ~

    lol, just a beginner. That's funny. When I hear "Vavavoom" I never think of beginner; I think of shaunybug or one of those pro spriters.
    Like PurpleMew said, your only real problem is mainly the light source.
    However, I think you could do overall better on Tracey. You made him a little...um...big. You should thin up his shirt a little more as for his shorts and shoes. His shoes are bigger than his head! I honestly think you should use another lighter shade on his shirt and shorts, though, because it looks very plain. The Jessie sprite is fabulous, I would just give more shading to her left arm and; wallah! Perfecto!
    On the newer Jessie, for god sake's change her mouth! It looks tiny, and her eyes; well, those are NOT Jessie's eyes. Otherwise, the rest is nice.
    You ribbons are by far your best work and there is no other way to improve them. Same for your fakemon, unless you want me to make very particular critisizms which I bet you I can do! :)

    But you have some very nice works and should keep it up!
    Great work, Vavavoom!

    Ohhhhh.... I absolutey LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Jessie!! It is adorable! The colors you chose for her are perfect. You are such a talented spriter :333 You should try your hand at a normal colored Jessilina <333

    Keep up the good work!
  20. Vavavoom

    Vavavoom ...

    Thanks ^^. I did make Jessie with her normal coloured dress. :3 And... here it is.


    Not really asking for C+C, since, like, I only changed the colours... but heh. Comments, anyone? s:
