POKEDDEXY Day 31 - All-Time Favorite
Sliggoo (approx. 2.5 hours)
[[MORE]]
It’s official: after much contemplation, I’ve decided that Sliggoo has officially surpassed Eevee, Rhyhorn, and any of the other Pokemon that used to compete for my favorite spot. This is the first serious competitor for my all-time favorite spot since Gen 1 (I’m not a diehard genwunner), and it won. Go Sliggoo! :D
Also, this sprite is one of the best things I’ve made so far, at least in my opinion. Ever. As you can see from the time, I spent a lot of time getting this just right, and I’m overjoyed with the result. I even partially recorded the process since I knew it was gonna be great:

Outlined the body. Head, Body, each set of Antennae, Eyes, and Mouth were on 6 separate layers so I could move them if I needed to.
Filled in everything with one base color. After that was done, I softened the black outlines by overlaying each base color over it by 50%
Developed the colors. I stepped up and down the hues to make the shading system, so it’s not just shades and tints. Very little white and black was used, actually.
I did the shading first (right 3 columns), starting with the lightest shade and working towards the darkest spots. I didn’t do many highlights, but I did use every color on this palette.
Recolored it shiny since my best friend on Pokemon X is now a lv 100 shiny Sliggoo. I raised it from a shiny Goomy this dork got me :3
