I am a digital and pixel artist specializing in Pokemon sprites and Fakemon designs. I have been making art for more than 15 years.
I will not join your fangame and make free sprites for you.
My fakemon designs are not for your game project.
I do however do Pixel Art commissions. My prices are below:
I think working with Nintendo's the best way to make a pokemon game without having it be taken down. Maybe you'll have better luck as Gamefreak worker.
Also, Maybe you should talk to Nintendo about hiring fangame creators. Sega hires fangame creators and I think Nintendo should try to follow their example.
I think I'm happy just staying a fan creator - I get more flexibility to express my own ideas this way!
In the past, yes. I even submitted an application on their website once. I don't speak Japanese well enough, though!
