Fakemon Spriting Tutorial 2.0 by JESGRAD07 Fakemon Spriting Tutorial 2.0 by JESGRAD07
I have a tendency to be a jerk if I get asked a question that I already answered...Its a condition...I can't help it >-> So to avoid my blunt jerky side please read EVERYTHING...that includes the comments.

FAQ:

Q:Who's that Fake Pokemon? 8D
A: IT'S PIKACHU! :iconhurrplz:...not buying it? :I ok its Frogling I designed him but sold him.

Q: How do you know what size to make your sprites?
A: I don't I just guess. If you have trouble with the sizing then find a official pokemon sprite that has the same size as your fake and use it as a size reference.

Q: Are you going to make a video tutorial?
A: BI nope...

Q: PIKUMBLE WILL RULE US ALL!
A: That isn't a question, but its a true statment XD.

Q: Do you have a Fakemon Drawing tutorial? I want to get my Sugi on!
A: ...(if any of you actually said that well...I think I have lost a lot of respect for you...jk XD) [link]

Q: Can you make the text bigger? Its hard to read...
A: Ctl + and Ctl - to zoom in and out on your browser ^^

Q: Can you make different translation of your tutorials?
A: I could if I knew any other language...And I barely know English for that matter XD. If your interested in helping me with making translations please note me. I would very much like to make one in Portuguese, German, Spanish, and French.

If you see a grammatical error...please tell me...I know I suck at typing so eh...

I remember trying to make a sprite, FAIL.
It didn't even look like a sprite, it looked like a whole bunch of squares in a weird form.
Very nice tutorial though!

Nice tut! I usually draw the outline first because I'm used to it, but drawing the forms looks like a good idea, too.

Something not heavily inspired by another persons fakemon. Something that strives to be different from what is already here on dA. Something unique.

Great tutorial for spriting, can I get your opinion on my Toucling and Graptor? If you need to comment them, go ahead, I just posted them under digital miscellaneous animals or something. Can you give me any suggestions?

BOth sprites look like they could use more shading and a more dull-ish kind a green. I am not saying like grey green but just a little toned down. Why are there black lines in the beaks for?

Hey, thanks, and I got no answer as for the black beaks. Don't know much about spriting or anyhing, but appreciate your input...do you think maybe you could touch one of them up and post the result?

No im serious. How do you get your lines so clear like that
Reply
:iconjesgrad07:
JESGRAD07 Featured By Owner May 5, 2012
that isn't even step 1...step 1 is at the top, you just put down the color in the vague shape of the fakemon. It helps if you have a reference.

move the tops of the claws down one pixel and then add a pixel to the bottom of either side of the middle claw on the left front leg (our right)

Jes, the black part of the outline, you use the same color for all sprites?

JESGRAD07 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012
Yeah pretty much...it might vary though...

oh, do you think it works better than just black? Also, any tip for doing eyes in white pokemon? because the line of the sclera looks to rought on mines :/
Reply
:iconjesgrad07:
JESGRAD07 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012
that and not every online of the official pokemon are straight black. As for the eyes on a white pokemon..it depends on what the eyes look like...I mean if you look at Pipea's sprite on the grado region fakedex its were just black dots so I just make the black dots and added some lighter transition colors.

I meant eyes like those of the first evo: [link]

:iconjesgrad07:
JESGRAD07 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012
just use a gray for the outline of the eye to separate if from the rest of the body and black for the pupil.

Hmm...that Interpolate thing...I never knew about that. o.o

Although, it appears Photoshop Elements lacks it. Ah well.
