Fairly recently, the VDex Project made second-frame sprite Pokémon available for capture, with some of them (such as Gyarados and Magnemite) gaining a lot of popularity for their... uniqueness. It kind of inspired me to try and make icons of all of them! Just a note: a few quotes for the Magnemite icons were borrowed from the nicknames some people on there have given them.
I also think I need to mention that the style I used for these icons (a soft light spot on the layer above the sprite) was inspired by gayified's sprite icons. Now, maybe they got the idea to do that from somewhere else, but their icons were the only sprite icons I've seen that do that, so there you go. \o/ Maybe I look like an idiot for even saying this, but... I couldn't just take inspiration from somewhere and not say anything!
So, go visit gayified. Their icons are a lot better and funnier than mine, hahaha.
Anyway, on to the icons!
• 295 Second frame sprite icons
-With alternate background colours and female sprites.
-Some have text.
-Some are animated.
|SECOND FRAME SPRITE ICONS|
AND UNFUNNY TEXT/KAMINA EDITS
|UNFUNNY ANIMATED ICONS|
Phew! What a huge icon post, haha. I hope this fits into lj's post limit okay...
If you have any requests for alternate versions of these Kanto Pokémon, suggestions for the future generations, or animated icon suggestions, please feel free to let me know! I only tried to include what I thought people would like, and even then there's probably too many of the Kamina glasses ones. :B
Random fun fact: The frame2 sprite of female Dodrio have their right legs moved one pixel to the right, when you directly compare them to the male sprites. I don't know why. \o/
Next up: Johto! (After some regular icon posts, probably.)
edit: I TOTALLY FORGOT ALTERNATE MOLTRES WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME
There we go!
Make sure you guys check out the comments as well, people have requested some pretty great icons. :Db I'd edit them all in, but I worry that too many more would break the post or something.
Also! A few people asked for me to compile all these icons in a .zip file, so I went ahead and did that. Click here for the download page! (1.81MB). If you think any files are missing from it, or the link's not working or something, just let me know.
♥ Please credit bluicons or bluwiikoon if you use any of these!
♥ Try not to direct-link the icons, and upload them to your own server or image host.
♥ I'm always open to any suggestions or comments you may have.
♥ Thanks for looking!
