hey dude don't say he would take anyone!

i have been trough several tests.

And watch it! if you can't do it better yourself.

and the only thing i'm asking for is to get a bit better not that i'm a noob nd i don't know how to sprite at all.

im guessing these are for monster sprites? if so, then the first one is ok but its pretty "2d" ish...just imagine it ingame sitting next too a tree or a building, and the 2nd one well, drag that too your trash can cuz it looks like a ms paint job, no offence:D

You should try to make sprites that are more accurate to Akarra's graphics. For example, try to make a new skeleton sprite in the same scale as the current skeletons. Then, when that looks nice, move up to larger sprites as you go along. Dragons should probably be rather large, but since they move on a 16x16 grid you should make it look like they are standing in one of the grid squares.
