Greetings everyone, this is where I’ll be posting my portraits and other sprite related work I’ve made in my free time.
This is also a sorts of bio I’ve made here. In reality, I’ve been a follower of the FE franchise ever since 2022, but it wasn’t till April of 2023 when I actually had a Laptop to make my own works and start to sprite for the first time, and it wasn’t till now when I actually got the courage to join this wonderful community.
Anyways, here’s where I’ll post most of the sprite work I did in the meantime, most of it, if not, all of it will be F2E btw, though maybe there will be one or other times where I post something that’s explitcitly neither F2U nor F2E, so keep that in mind.
I’ve also been inspired by some other guys here like Melia and GaryTop to give commentary and backstory to each of the sprites I post here.
Although keep in my mind that for the moment that I don’t take commissions, requests or the like, both because I’ve just started, I treat this more of a hobby, and I don’t have all the time to be spriting, so I’m not always available. And I’ll post irregularbly, not always.
Also, instead of having filled the full 16 color limit of the portrait as some of you could see, I’ve made it my own rule to make it so that most of my non FE human sprites didn’t reach past 12 colors max, just so I could later make edits of these portraits with different outfits (like the Pokemon Unite Holowears). But if some of you aren’t fan of that don’t worry, I’ll later make versions of these portraits that try to fill the color limit there is for these portraits, although some of the more detailed ones won’t be insertable in a normal FE GBA romhack, so you can only use them in other thing like the Tactile engine or Lex Talionis.
For now though, I’ll have only one section, that is the F2E section of my works.
The allegedly strongest pokemon to ever exist… at least for the first Gen. Enjoyed seeing what colors I could use for this one. Seeing as I would only color the top part of this pokemon, which doesn’t have too much variation in colors that I would put, I decided to give him 5 colors that would be used as skin tones for it. Combined with one singular color that was used as the white sclera of his eyes, this one didn’t even up with at least 9 colors! Definitely one that you could put almost anything into him. I may give him a redesign in the future tho, feeling like it could be more better. Other than that, I’ll leave it as it is.
The fully evolved starter from Gen II is here, although it’s just the original variant for now. At the very least it comes with a variant of it looking “amused”, inspired by a scene from the Pokemon anime. Really like how its mouth frames ended up.
This is a portrait that I had a bit of a problem in regards to the colors I’ve used at first. Mainly the dark blue-green ones, because I didn’t notice that the colors I used had a very low color value lol. Other than that I didn’t have too much problems in making this one’s portrait. I’ve even made a version of it looking in another way to help avoid ambidextrous sprites. These ones are the Male Sneasel version too. Later I’ll make a Weavile portrait down the road, alongside the Hisuian Sneasel and Sneasler ones.
The fully evolved fire starter from the 3rd gen from Pokemon, now in FE GBA format. I tried to use some of the normal colors of the skin tone of a regular FE portrait as the colors of the Blaziken’s feathers, although eventually I settled for a slightly different tone.
A notorious pokemon from Gen III who by all means should be pretty normal. Other than that this Pokemon now has a portrait for anyone to use. This alongside Gallade would be the main characters of a romhack I plan to make one day. And much like Braixen I waited to put this portrait until I felt it was good enough to upload, by improving its color palette.
The very first sprite I’ve made. Keep this in mind, most of the sprites I’ve made where first drawn in a drawing book, and then were digitally scaned so that I could insert them in a PNG image. Fun fact there.
Well, as for the Pokemon himself, this is a character I’ve drawn with the intention of having him be one of the protagonists of a FE8 romhack I’ll release in the yet undrawn future. I remember struggling to make this portrait at first, thanks to being well, the very first portrait I’ve made. In particular, I’ve reached the color limit, most of the shading was wrong, and most important I didn’t know how to make eye and mouth frames lol. Beginner’s luck basically
Also I’ve made some miscellaneous expressions for this character down here.
It’s ya blue boi Lucario. My favorite pokemon of all time lol. Making its portrait wasn’t too difficult IIRC. It kind of beats Gallade in being the first portrait I’ve posted here too.
That infamous rabbit pokemon from Gen IV. At least it was a bit fun making this portrait. Similarly to Blaziken, I’ve used a bit of some skin tone from certain FE characters, especially dark skinned ones like FE6 Garret, as some of the colors of the pokemon. I kind of feel like using a bit more colors, or at the very least do different shading, but overall this one went well.
The Chansey expy of Gen V, who is notorious for being a big exp piñata there. don’t confuse expy with exp, okay? Good. You have an Audino portrait that you can use for anything you want.
Another very popular Pokemon that now has a FE portrait. I’ve made it based on the portraits it has on Pokemon:SMD. If I were to redo this portrait, maybe I would only fix the part of the tongue “scarf” it has on the right side, but aside from that, this went fine. And the eye and mouth frames almost overlap by a bit. Overall I’m glad how this one went.
I also made more expressions for this ninja frog, alongside two variants of it without the tongue scarf, for the ones that prefer it without that:

The middle phase of the fire starter of Gen VI, who is also more popular than its final evolution, is now here as a portrait! I had this portrait already made a long time ago as one of my first portraits, although even when I made it better I still felt the need to improve it further, so I spent yesterday’s time [2024-01-28] to give a few more upgrades to Braixen’s portraits. Mainly because for some reason when I’ve made this portrait I made the tufts of orange fur of its ears point downwards instead of upwards, so I decided to edit that. Although I still left the original version in case someone wants it here. At least most of that fur wasn’t large enough to not fit properly into the hackbox
NOTE: If you’re going to use the normal version with the fur of its ears pointing upwards you’ll have to use the extended portrait patch to properly insert the portrait.

That edgy version of the dog pokemon of Gen VII. I feel like making a better version of this portrait, but for the time being I’ll leave this one here in case someone wants to use it.
The fully evolved fire rabbit from Gen VII. seeing as this was one of the first portraits I’ve made, and in contrast to Lucario, this one was a bit more rough to draw and had to do multiple redraws for this one. Maybe I’ll update it later once again, but for now this is the best try I have for this one.
The fully evolved water spy lizard from Gen VII is now a FE GBA portrait. Also my favorite Gen VII starter. Suppose nobody has a problem with that, I hope. I made its portrait by taking Legault’s portrait as reference, which quite fit well enough. I feel like improving its mouth frames, but for now its decent enough.
The fully evolved grass starter from Gen IX. The pose I chose for this Pokemon fits very well, although I think in the future I’ll update how it looks in general. But at the very least there’s a Meowscarada portrait anyone can use. I’ve also made a maskless version of this one if anyone wants it.
