Since they are supposed to be tiny sprites, the fact that the images are large makes them blurry... but I can see all the hard work, and I can really see how great they are. Keep it up!

My new avatar was created by myself. Not very professional though. It's Yoshi's artwork for SSBU, based on his new appearence for Crafted World, except colored pink!

EDIT: Looking at it now, there are some visible blotches on Yoshi's right foot, I need to fix that.

EDIT 2: After looking at the ORIGINAL artwork, those blotches are supposed to be there. Never mind then.

Here's a link to more recolored artwork, this time from Crafted World itself. The Yoshi shoes actually are harder to recolor than the fur. My mistakes are most noticeable on the Yoshi shoes. By the way, I use GIMP for my picture editing.

Let me know how it is!

Here's some more, utilizing some underused Yoshi colors, such as brown, orange, and black, along with purple.

I might try some different characters; always recolors though, I'm no good at from-scratch art.

This is a sprite sheet that I never finished, since I'm not good with full sheets. I'll happily take any advice!

I haven't done full sheets that size myself.

But from the looks of it, nothing wrong stands out.

Alright, been a while, but this post is for YFJ and LGM specifically. I decided to edit artworks to see what their avatars might look like. Here's what YFJ's avatar might look like for halloween (To fit with his Ghostly Yoshi name):
Open it in a new tab to see it better.



And here's what LGM's might look like if she went back to her original theme:

Have you tried using the select color function so you don't need to change palettes manually with the fill bucket?

I use GIMP. I use select color often, but I don't think you're able to change colors using the bucket with GIMP.

You can. It's either ticked in "fill whole selection" or "fill similar colors", something like that. You use the color picker selection tool to pick the all similar colors in the picture (for sprites the tolerance should be at its lowest since there is only a limited amount of colors anyway). But even without the bucket, you can just get a really big brush and paint over the selection.

Anyhow, it's related, but if you ever get the thought of "wouldn't it be easier if I could just select all similar colors", there's a chance a program has it, so just look up online to check if a function exists!

Here's something new. I fancy myself pretty good at paper drawings, and this one has my best shading yet (that's not saying much though). The shading is most evident in the face, under the mustache and the shadow cast by the brim of his cap.

I drew the head weeks before I drew the rest, and I forgot what the original goal was, so I just drew in Mario's body. Then, from the strange, twisted recesses of my mind, I colored him in with my three favorite colors: gold, bright blue, and pink.

I was probably gonna draw him in a more action filled pose originally, but I still haven't remembered.

Tell me your thoughts!

Your artstyle certainly is... unique.

That said, I like your shading. Really adds a lot to the piece.

I don't know about Koops, but I like how it is unique! It's cool that you have an artstyle that looks different than the norm.

Man, we sure do have a lot of good artists on these Boards...

Could I say anything bad about Moldo's artwork?

Though your last statement is correct.

When shading, I suggest using complementary colors, not just simple darker versions of colors, and not black. For yellow, use like a dark purple (lightly). For reds, try greens. Blues, use oranges. And so on.
