Deets! Digital pen? Mouse-drawn with shapes? Any base-line images or freehand?

The only suggestion I have is to either shrink the bottom half (legs/abdomen) or to grow the top half (head/arms) for proportion's sake. Aside from that, it is recognizable right off the bat, and pretty accurate too! :D Cool stuff

Yeah I made that top part to small :P

I used a tutorial to help draw it, probally why it looks halfway decent.

And yes, I used a pen tool, as I lack the super concentration needed to keep my hand steady while using the mouse.

Right now I'm remaking my Avatar so its not sprite art, any tips would be well received :D

Just finished This, I think it turned out okay. It was a tracing of my sprite art avatar.

Quite the lesson in layers.

Very nice. My only concern is, why is it not your avatar lol. You're still wearing the sprite art.

The pen tool is an amazing tool that everyone should learn about. I'm glad you're giving it a try.

And layers are super important. I can run projects that have over 100 layers for something really basic. Getting used to doing everything on a new layer will save you a lot of frustration in the long run.

The first image needs a little clean up, and the feet are a bit weird, but it's still good. the warped perspective is really cool.

The second one is super clean, but something seems off about it. I think it's the jpeg compression.

This was done months ago on a whim, I haven't touch photoshop since.

There's still hope for pokemon art, as I want to get Pokemon Art Acadamey...
