An attempt at gender-swapping the super nerd sprite from HG/SS. I can't decide whether it actually looks like a girl now or not. Could just be a guy with long hair. Opinions?
Only ever got one comment, so I'm reposting it. Comments plz?

If you locked this for length, then why not do the B/W thread? :/ I don't see the point in locking it for length. Just a waste of time and posts in my opinion... -_-

Here's something I did just now, a scratched mughshot, design by my sister and sprite (and idea) by me.

He's an ice-type pimp gym leader. B]

I've never sprited before, so I made various recolors to start off.

I think this one was the best I made.

Dialga recolor -->

ANYWAY
my sister made me do this

Another one of those gym leaders; this one uses steel types (design by the aforementioned sister).
Any comments? :U

First off I really like the shading on the fire here; I can tell the you spent a lot of time on this part and it's paid off. On the other hand, it doesn't really seem to move like fire. My explaining skills are pretty bad, so it'd help you more if you watched fire in motion. A fireplace could work or you could look at some fire-y sprites for reference. Fire Kirby is a good one since he's fairly similar to this character. Next up, you might want to smooth out his circular shape a bit on our right (his left.) This guy seems to have different sized feet, too. I find it's helpful to copy and paste one of the feet and flip it to compare the size. Then make adjustments as you see fit. I like how you animated the eyes, but they seem stark compared the rest of the body. If you used more shades on them, they might blend in more.

The color choice is nice; it doesn't burn my eyeballs out, nor is it too drab.

It could use a lot more shading though. The outline needs shading, and you can probably put half its head and body in shadow, not to mention its tail.

This is my first pixel-over. I know it looks bad (Especially the spheres) but I would like comments.

Smooth out the outlines. They're looking really jagged instead of smooth and circular.
