Custom Trainer Sprites  
Alright everyone, I'm back with more slots for custom trainer sprites! :) To see examples of my work, feel free to poke around my photobucket.


I'm not making these for free, they'll be roughly $1.50-$6, depending on difficulty. Paypal only. If you want to do a trade(pokemon trade, art trade, etc.) instead, ask, but I wont promise anything.
2. It's first come first serve. Check to see if there are spots available, I'm only taking a few at a time.
3. I make sprites, not trainer cards and/or icons. Once the sprite is done and given to you, my job is over, you figure out what you want to do with it.
4. Give me credit. I'm perfectly fine with you making graphics with your requested sprite, just don't claim it as yours, give me credit where it's due.
5. I can turn down your request for whatever reason; if it's too difficult, if you are rude, etc. If I accept your request but later cannot complete it, I'll compensate you in some way, whether it be through AR shinies or whatever.
6. Please include your favorite pokemon game as you comment subject so I know you read the rules. I will ignore you if you don't.
7. Leave me contact information. This means some way to get a hold of you outside of LJ. AIM or MSN is preferred, but email will do just fine.


Basic Sprite: $1.50

This means simple recolors, non-extravagant clothing, non-animated.

Intricate patterns: +$0.50
Pinstripes, stitching, stripes, polka-dots, etc

Difficult layering: +$0.50
Capes, jackets, belts, t-shirts, scarves, etc.

Animation, two images: x2

If your sprite costs $2 by itself, then it'd cost $4 as a two frame animation. If movement is minor, then it will only be x1.5.

Animation, three images: x3

If your sprite costs $2 by itself, then it'd cost $6 as a three frame animation. If the movement is minor(see the center and third sprites in example) then it will only be x2.
Examples: also, see icon.

Animated Icon/Trainer Card: +$.50- $1
If you want your animated(not for non-animated sprites) sprite in an icon or Trainer Card.

If you have any questions about prices, feel free to ask.

~Request Form~

Tell me exactly what you want done(don't just say "blue," for hair. Say "wavy, shoulder length, navy blue."). Include images if at all possible. I'm pretty confident in my abilities, but don't expect everything to turn out perfect. If you want changes done, just ask and I'll do my best.

Base sprite: (I need one(or two or three, if you want an animation). I can do either a trainer sprite, a back sprite, or a vs sprite, but you need to link me to the base you want. Bases: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Hair: Style, length, color, etc.
Skin tone:
Clothes: What do you want done? Color change? Complete edit? New pants, shirt, dress, cape?
Anything else:

I'll start once I get payment. If for some reason I don't complete your request, I'll refund you.

With school and other things, it'll take me roughly a week to finish all requests. I'll then post them and start again.

~Request Slots~

I'm not going to request a sprite because I have no way to pay for one, but I just wanted to say that they look really great! I especially love that third Basic sprite. I wish I had anywhere near your level of talent. Good luck with selling them!

Is it? Ah, I didn't think of that. :x But I'm not really selling the sprite itself, just my services in remaking them. I don't know if that's the same thing...
Courtney: soulmarioralindir on September 13th, 2009 01:03 am (UTC)
Hiya! Sorry, I'm not planning on ordering one at this point in time, but I just wanted to say that your sprites are utterly gorgeous.

Also, I was wondering if you could suggest to me a good program for sprite editing/icon making/etc? If you'd rather not, don't worry about it. Figured I'd try, at least. :D

God my oh!!!!: Sprite 3.0kimba616 on September 13th, 2009 04:02 am (UTC)
I've been told GIMP is good. I honestly don't know, though; I taught myself everything on MSPaint, and it's what I still use to this day. As for animation, I use free programs online. The best I've found is called oie oie animation.

Base sprite: the animation sprite
Gender: Male
Hair: silver strait and long
Eyes: grey
Skin tone:pale-ish
Clothes: a shining buizel kigu. think the pokefans
Shoes: they shouls look like buizel paws
Anything else: kay well... i would like it as a trainer icon. i was wondering if it is possible. and i am willing to pay for this, if you did him on the back of a tauros with a buizel sitting infront of him and the tauros rears up flails then goes back down.
spiritwolven: pokemonspiritwolven on September 13th, 2009 02:01 am (UTC)
oh and for ref look at the icon here
God my oh!!!!kimba616 on September 13th, 2009 04:05 am (UTC)
When I say base sprite, I mean a sprite I use as a base. Like these --> http://i893.photobucket.com/albums/ac132/DeathSaid/Bases/TrainerAnimations.png If you want it to be an animation, then you need to tell me which ones you want to make up the animation.
spiritwolvenspiritwolven on September 13th, 2009 06:09 pm (UTC)
oh i see. i like the second one in that group. the one that is sitting then stands up. can you add a tauros in there. the platnium sprite would be best i am thinking. maybe him jumping out of his pokeball as he stands up. and be an icon. lol
God my oh!!!!: Sprite 3.0kimba616 on September 13th, 2009 07:41 pm (UTC)
There's also these images --> http://i893.photobucket.com/albums/ac132/DeathSaid/Bases/HGSSanimations.png from HGSS.

Also, I don't know what a "shining buizel kigu" is. Either describe it or find an image(your icon is too small to make out accurately.) Now, tell me exactly how you want your sprite, frame by frame. Don't say "maybe" or I wont know if it's what you really want. Until I know what the sprite will look like, I can't give you a price. :[
spiritwolvenspiritwolven on September 13th, 2009 08:11 pm (UTC)

basically it is an outfit that makes the wearer look like a pokemon. in this case a shiny buizel.

okay frame by frame. i still think i want to stick with the sit down sprite.

first frame he is siting there, second frame the partial get up frame the poke beam shoots from his belt as tauros is released. third frame he is full standing tauros forms does the tauros frame motion and that is it. so i don't know how many frames the tauros frame motion is but it doesn't need to get recolored. and i would want my friend code underneith it like what you have.
God my oh!!!!: Sprite 3.0kimba616 on September 13th, 2009 08:25 pm (UTC)
Okay, so all together it would be $6.50. $1.50 as the base price + $0.50 for difficult layering x3 for a three framed animation and an additional $0.50 for the added Tauros animation and 100x100 icon format.

My paypal address is kimba_616(at)hotmail.com I'll start once I get payment. :]

Also, what's your FC? And did you want your name/nickname/whatever included as well?

Charlie: SEEEEKRITy0te on September 13th, 2009 02:02 am (UTC)
I'm curious, you say you MIGHT do art trades. I have a DA gallery filled with examples of my work, would you perhaps be interested? I do full-color images in Copic, and such.

God my oh!!!!kimba616 on September 13th, 2009 04:07 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm just really picky with art styles. <<; I understand that some people don't have paypal and stuff, but the whole reason I decided to do these again is because I need money, even if it's just a little bit, you know?
Charliey0te on September 13th, 2009 05:39 am (UTC)
Oh, no! I understand, I take commissions myself, mate and understand that there are times where you just need to make a little money, so I get where you're coming from. No worries, man.

They look awesome. Your Evangelion sprites had me wanting an Anime sprite for some time. I've been trying my hand at it but I think I'm lacking in the arts department as a whole.

Since you seem to have an AR, I'm not sure what pokemon might interest you. I have Plat/HGSS event pokemon as well as other events like Deoxys (Gamestop?) and TRU Dragonite. I'm also training up some EV'd level 100s, such as a Supporting Wall Shuckle, Impish with 4 IVs >30. Would you consider any of them? I'd be happy with just a still.
God my oh!!!!: Asukakimba616 on September 13th, 2009 05:18 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
I've never been good with EV training, so that Shuckle is looking pretty awesome. :] What moves do you have on it?
shirogame: Pangya Kazshirogame on September 13th, 2009 05:34 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~

She's going to have:
-Stealth Rock

She's Japanese, has Gluttony ability, named Berry in katakana for now, rename-able, IVs: 30 HP, 11 Atk, 30 Def, 14 Spd, 31 SpA, 30 SpD, EVs: 252 HP / 208 Def / 48 SpD

I'm going to have to take a day to finish leveling her up (just 1-2 more E4 runs~). It's 1am here and I won't be back till evening tomorrow. If she's acceptable, I'll post the request form today and trade you tomorrow ♥
God my oh!!!!: EIP 8Dkimba616 on September 13th, 2009 05:59 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
She looks awesome! :D Request away, and remember to be as detailed as possible(if you're requesting an anime character, images are encouraged). :3

Re: Soul Silver~

It’s so hard to choose! I meant to go with a Flint base but the twin girls in HGSS are so cute… do you think you can fit these two in the sprite base (with male on right (his back will be plain white), female on left)? The reference isn’t that clear, but that’s the best I can find for now. If details contradict, the anime screenie takes priority; the fanart is more for colour reference (and worse come to worst I can try recolouring? XD). Sorry if it’s messy!

And technically it’s 1 sprite but 2 characters, so do you want me to EV another pokemon for you?

Let me know if it isn’t feasible somehow and I’ll fall back to my Flint!Peony <3
God my oh!!!!: Sprite 3.0kimba616 on September 14th, 2009 01:18 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
Nah, the Shuckle is still fine. :) And I think I can do it; their outfits don't seem too difficult.

When will you be online? It's about 6:20am where I am now, but I wont be home again for a few hours.
shirogame: Pangya Kazshirogame on September 14th, 2009 01:42 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~

I'll be home with my WIFI in about 1 hour. After which I can hang around 2 hours. Will you be available then?

Re: Soul Silver~
I have to leave for school, so I wont be back for about 7 hours. :[ When will you be on next?
shirogame: Pkmn Plat (EN)shirogame on September 14th, 2009 01:53 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
Roughly in another 24 hours >_> We can do it through GTS? Request for Lv100 female Shuckle (OT would be Shiy, in case other people trade you >_>), just let me know what junk pokemon you put up and maybe use an uncommon Location (it can be changed right?) so it's easier for me to find you.
God my oh!!!!kimba616 on September 14th, 2009 05:55 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
I'll put up a LV100 Bidoof(female), since I can't figure out how to change my location. <<;
shirogame: Pangya Kazshirogame on September 15th, 2009 05:38 am (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
LV100 fodder! It's sure easy to find. I'll be home in about 7 hours to trade. :3
shirogame: Bou-chan <3 (WO)shirogame on September 15th, 2009 04:05 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
Did you put it up already? It seems I missed it. D8

Sorry for the trouble, can we try again? I'll try to go on GTS before I leave home tmr morning.
God my oh!!!!: Sprite 3.0kimba616 on September 15th, 2009 11:54 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
LOL Someone actually wanted a level 100 Bidoof? Weird! Haha I'll put another one up. xD
shirogame: Pangya Kazshirogame on September 16th, 2009 08:02 am (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
I've never understood the GTS and the weird trades that happen there :E Hacks don't even begin to explain half of them.

I checked in the morning but you hadn't replied so I figured you haven't re-upped the fodder. It's the same: Lv100 F Bidoof right? I'll try to get home early today and grab it before others snatch the treasure away!
God my oh!!!!kimba616 on September 16th, 2009 01:05 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
Yep, still a LV 100 female Bidoof. And I just checked; no one has taken it yet. :)
shirogame: Pangya Kazshirogame on September 16th, 2009 02:29 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
Are you still online? >< I got home late after all. It's gone. These Lv100 Bidoofs are strangely popular. Maybe you can try a common low level instead. Like, I don't know, <10 Starly? I'll try to trade all the rest out till I see yours. Or we can WIFI trade over the weekend. :/
God my oh!!!!: choose wiselykimba616 on September 16th, 2009 06:50 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
The thing with lv<10 pokemon is that there are always so many of them on the GTS; that'd be too much work to find mine. I'll try a lv100 M Exeggcute, because it's a bit more obscure.
shirogame: Bou-chan <3 (WO)shirogame on September 17th, 2009 02:21 pm (UTC)
Re: Soul Silver~
Got it~ <3 Exeggcute

I guess Berry's your 3rd Shuckle huh XD
