I work a lot of hours of my free time on donphan.social, and also pay for most of it with my own pocket because the support I currently get is currently not enough to cover for the server costs (though I'm very grateful for what I already have!)

If you like donphan.social, appreciate my work and can afford to help, consider contributing to my Patreon! patreon.com/siphonay

On that note, this Youtube video is a fantastic breakdown of pkmn Red/Blue/Yellow’s sprites.

I feel it really shows how the limitations of the hardware allowed the first pkmn games to have amazing pixel graphics.

There’s just something about these graphics that sparks joy for me basically.
Although this really doesn’t compare seeing them on the GBC LCD screen.

Each pkmn gold sprite used two colours and black.

But each sprite achieves dynamic shading. Some use dithering to create the illusion of more colours or transparency.

Dragon!Ghetsis for my dragon/medieval AU thing.

In before the "fuck you, I'm a dragon!" jokes.

Here's the first art post of mine here!

I plan on making phone charms of two of my favorite Trainers in Pokemon's core series. I'm quite proud of how they came out.

Hey there fedi admins!

As donphan.social is a Pokémon-themed instance, I decided a few years ago that every single Pokémon icon should be available on here! :luvdisc::munchlax::raboot:

I’ve noticed that some servers over time chose to copy some or all of them. I don’t own the copyright on Pokémon so I can’t put a license of them, but by courtesy it would be really nice to credit me and donphan.social, as adapting them all so that they look good on Masto, and importing them all took a LOT of work.

If you want to import them easily on Masto with tootctl, I made an archive you can download here: demiboy.online/donphan_pokemon

It contains all the Pokémon so far, up to the Sword and Shield DLCs.

Hope you enjoy them, and once again please credit me if you use them!

I was looking at my pride Pokémon recolors I made years ago and some of them look really nice 😁​

(my Patreon was veeeery outdated, I updated it to cover the actual current cost of running the server and my current goals. I see there’s a few new Patrons and I’m very grateful for them, so thank you very much!)
