Desert Battle by Kyle-Dove Desert Battle by Kyle-Dove
Man I'm really churning out these battle backgrounds!

Also, it's difficult to sprite a lens flare
Dasypudge vs Termitooth <3

There's not much you can animate in a desert battle...clouds drifting and sand blowing past?

I can understand. There are so many thieves around. But it's still really awesome and I wish Nintendo would listen to their fans and people like kymo.

Well you gotta imagine getting like 500+ messages a day. All of them could even be about the same thing. You can't listen to them all.

That sun was done really well :> I would've used a light yellow or white maybe, but it actually works like this too.

Tumbleweeds could drift past occasionally?
Flying pokemon in the background like vultures?

I don't like the shading on top right sand dunes.
I know it's lens flare but but using some AA wouldn't harm.
I dislike the colour of the sun also.
But over than that, great!

Como siempre genial, solo veo raro el sol, es como saliera de la arena y no de atrás, supongo que será el destello xD.
¿Que programa usas para diseñar? ¿Paint?

Tumble weeds! That would be awesome and funny, the first time one goes past.
Must use spaghetti western music for desert battles.

i am not to fond of the background in this case....
i don't like the dark outlines u used for the sand "cliffs".... making them lighter will fix this imo!
otherwise kyle as alwayz i envy ur skills!
the rocks and bushes look so real!
well done!

Anyways I love their battle and I love thinking about deserts, but I probably won't visit one anytime soon (too hot).

Probably best in a nice, air-conditioned terrain vehicle or something... that sounds like fun!
