Sunset brother to my Latias avi, because apparently I can't just recolor something and call it a day. /punches self

Gods, I struggled so bad with this "ocean sunset" palette that I ended up running to a Color Balance filter and putting a border around Latios. I really don't like how this came out, so critiques are sorely welcome. ;o;"

This whole piece of art is amazing!

The warm beautiful colors, Latios's pose looks OUTSTANDING and beautiful!

Latios looks like he's having alot of fun flying in the sky, and i really like how you put his head outside the outline too. It makes the icon look really cool and amazing! :)

I really love this icon and every single one you make, and i'd say this is the best latios icon i've seen.

I really love the orange sky, and the clouds as well. I love latios's blue color!

Amazing work, you deserve a watch, my friend. This is a truly amazing icon and i hope alot of people make use of it.

You deserve 2 million watchers!! :)

Hi, I'm here to critique this lovely avatar ;)!

Now this is one icon that I'd love to use on a forum! I really like how Latios' head is is outside of the outline - it looks like they're about to fly out of the avatar; personally, I like avatars that aren't confined within a circle/square :nod:

The one aspect of the avatar that bothers me is the background - compared to your other avatars, this one's background looks a bit grainy/pixellated. It may be because of the combination of blue and pink pixels in the ocean, since your Latias avatar doesn't have this issue; instead of combining pink and blue, two colors that are almost opposites on the color wheel, perhaps you could tint the ocean pink and orange instead, and make the sky bluish (similar to the color palette in this scene), or the other way around (like in this scene).

Hope this helps, and have a wonderful holiday and New Year! :heart:

What do u use for pixels?

Program doesn't matter. Anything that lets me zoom in super-close and work with a single pixel.

I prefer GIMP for pixelling and photo editing. I used to use SAI and MS Paint, but GIMP's superior and allows background transparency.

Haha, I know how you feel xD It took me a while to get used to it cuz there's so many options. OTL

What are you trying to do in GIMP? Maybe I can help.

Okay, cool. What are you having problems with? Do you know the basics of how to change your brush size and color, add layers, etc. yet?

You need to be more precise about your problem. xD Are you having difficulty changing colors, or choosing your palette?

For changing colors, here's text instructions.

For picking colors, try a palette generator like this or this. The first link should link you to an Eevee-ish palette. With the 2nd, you'll have to input a color hex code yourself, like "AB6521" (a saturated brown) or "CA8849" (a pastel brown). (Hex codes are alphanumerical values assigned to colors. They enable you to find/use exactly the colors you want across GIMP, other programs, and the internet.)

Aww, thank you so much! ♥♥♥

Tbh, I actually think the colors in this are horrendous. xD But that's probably just cuz I've been staring at it long enough to give me a headache, haha.
