    I'm not an artist by any means, but I figured I might as well make a gallery here of stuff I've done. It's mostly old sprite-work, but I'm starting to get into it again so there is some newer stuff too. If I get access to a scanner then I'll get some old Pokémon doodles here as well.
    I also now have a shop here on LV where you can commission your own sprite ideas from me. It can be found -here-. Also, you can feel free to use these sprites for anything you want so long as you credit me for them and let me know.

    Wow! I love the "Misc Pokémon" section. Your sprites are very nicely done.

    I suppose I should probably post whenever I update stuff here, even though I plan on putting everything in the first post. Since posting originally, I split the Misc Pokémon section into Misc Pokémon and Anime Pokémon. I've also added two new Pokémon sprites, which I'll also put in this post.

    I love your Pinkan Island and Crystal Onix sprite sets -- they're lovely. Illusion Rayquaza is also pretty great looking. Awesome job man! Do you have any plans to do unique sprites, or is recoloring your preference? =o

    My skill set is pretty limited. I'm good at recolors and I can do some minor edits, but any more than that and anything I try will generally end up looking terrible. Although, if I work on more original stuff, I could probably improve those skills.
    Edit: I found some more old sprites lying around. Plus some new ones, some of which are in a new section called "Classic-Style Pokémon".

    I changed all of my sprites from a .BMP format to .PNG and given them transparent backgrounds. I've also redone the Black Tyranitar sprite.

    I've been practicing sprite work for years. I first started by recreating the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Sprites in Paint (specifically the Windows XP version) before eventually discovering that I can kind sprites online to copy and edit to my hearts content. Over time my skills have improved greatly and I have picked up a few tricks. Most of those tricks apply only to Paint XP (which I copied off my old computer on to my current one so that I can still use it), but one that works regardless of program is that when recoloring anything, you should always 'borrow' the colors from other sprites from the same game.
    Also, I have another update. I've turned Alolan Mewtwo into a full spritesheet and added a new Gen II Shadow Mewtwo spritesheet. I also have animated versions of them, but it looks like I can't post GIFs here.

    Your sprite work is very well done! Especially the Pinkan Island sprites! (I'm a sucker for the color pink)

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Okay, it looks like I've hit my limit for how many images I can have in a single post on that first post, so from now on I won't be putting new sprites up there. Anyway, I finally made a new sprite for the first time in a few months so I'm posting it here, plus a few others that I'm not sure why I didn't upload before. I also flipped my Shadow Mewtwo sprite around so that the crystal is sticking out of the correct shoulder. I accidentally put it on the wrong one before and I don't feel like making a properly corrected sprite right now. And now for the new ones.

    Ghost-Type Gardevior

    It's been snowing unusually late in the season over hear and I even managed to get a snow day from school today, so I had time to actually make this when the inspiration struck me this morning. I came up with the idea for a Ghost-type version of Gardevoir and thought that adding parts of Mismagius would make it work well. I replaced Gardevoir's lower half with Mismagius' and made some slight modifications to its waistline to make the transition look as seamless as I could make it. I then changed the colors around so that the white part of Gardevior was replaced with Mismagius's purple and the pink edging of Mismagius is now Gardevior's green. I then decided to change the color of the eye, chest-horn-thing and gemstones to the blue of Gardevior's shiny sprite to make it a bit spookier. I also replaced the lightest shade of of green, found only on the top of its head, to the lightest shade of the blue because I thought it made it look more ethereal that way. At this point I decided to give it Haunter's hands. In order to make sure that the hands were correctly placed in relation to the rest of the sprite, I pasted them over where Gardevior's hands were before erasing the arms so that the hands would be floating in mid air and recoloring them to match the rest of the sprite.

    Blue Celebi
    This is just a blue recolor of Celebi, as far as I recall. I don't remember why I made it, but I thought I might as well post it here.

    "The Gigalith King"
    I recolored Gigalith so that the blueish-purple rocks that comprise the bulk of its body are gold, the red rock-spikes are crystals and the gray rocks that make up its joints are silver. I then decided to name it the Gigalith King, because I thought it sounded awesome and felt like the combination of precious metals and diamond that mad=ke up its body was fitting of royalty.
    [​IMG]
    One-Tailed Vulpix
    Several Pokédex entries for Vulpix state that it is born with one tail (which is sometimes stated to be white) that splits into six as it grows older (and turns orange). This is based off of what a single-tailed Vulpix would look like, based specifically on one shown in the Pokémon Battle Frontier manga. I think the tail I used as a base came from Eevee, but its been a long time since I made this, so i don't really remember.

    I'm back with a new sprite. This one is Black Fog, a giant Haunter from The Electric Tale of Pikachu and probably one of the freakiest thing in the franchise. For those who have never heard of this thing, Black Fog is an ancient and powerful Haunter that regularly devours the souls of people and Pokémon using Dream Eater. It ate the souls of Sabrina's Pokémon when she was young which causes her to go after it in revenge. It then eats her soul. Ash and Brock see Sabrina in the hospital and decide to go after Black Fog. Ash manages to weaken it enough to capture it, but Black Fog uses Self-Destruct to kill itself because it would rather die than allow itself to be captured by a lowly human. Black Fog's death does have the advantage of bringing Sabrina back to life, though. Anyway, with that out of the way, here's my 16-rendition of this horror.
    [​IMG]
    I took Haunter's base sprite and recolored it black using Glalie's normal and shiny sprites. Then I changed up the eyes to make them more rounded and with smaller pupils. Finally, I changed the interior of Haunter's mouth and the glow around its hands to a yellow-orange gradient with a bit of red in the mouth. The yellow as taken from Treecko's eyes, the orange was from Camerupt and the red was from Sceptile. In retrospect, I should have tried scaling up the sprite to better show off Black Fog's size and I may eventually make a revised version that better reflects that.
