Hey guys... I noticed that I made quite a lot of Pokemon so far, most of them haven't been uploaded... so I will try to update more frequently, because I don't want my backlog to become too big I still have about 40 finished pieces ready to show Hope you don't get tired of my stuff
Although some details of this work may be simple, which may be said negatively in the case of most sprites, it compliments Scyther's palette and overall appearance. The positioning of the sprites pose, as well as the angle were both properly executed. In fact, this piece in general just seems to suite the basic feeling behind this pokemon. My only 'critique' with this piece is that because of Scyther's obvious insectoid resemblance, his shell or exoskeleton might have had some sort of reflected light or shimmer. (Also, I must confess that this is my opinion, and while I enjoy sprites and Hama beads, I am in no means an expert. Also, this is my first critique, so if you inclined, you can critique my critique.) Keep up the good work!
I honestly thought that this was digital art until I looked closer at it. Brilliantly executed. I haven't seen something like this in years. I do like the way you have the 'light' hit. Also, it has great detail. Another thing I like is the fact it looks like it would in the games. Also, I have to congratulate you on your attention to detail, and your ability to show said detail. Before I wrote this critique, I showed it to a few friends. They loved it, so they told me to write a critique. I hope you find it fair. I also hope to see more of this talent in the future.
Only thing I found weird were the toes on the left foot. The pupil is there (even if it is hard to see), so I didn't count that. Especially considering the game puts it in that hard to see spot. Great job overall!
