If so, could you send a link with a picture of the shiny sprite?

Nah, i think
Aren't they in black in white? How would they have shiny sprites?
No, they're in color.
Oh, okay. Guess I didn't realize when I've looked at them.

As far as I can figure, no.
However it did seem to happen to this gentleman on this YouTube video (warning: this video contains strong language)
Although I am uncertain of the legitimacy of this find. Furthermore, the alleged shiny he found was the unused sprite for Hoppip, a species made the final cut and so is not grouped with the unused beta Pokemon of which you are referring to. This may have a bearing on the fact that it was found shiny when the other beta Pokemon were not, but I cannot say for certain.

I looked at the website for the group who discovered the beta material and found no mention of shiny variants for the beta Pokemon. I think that they, who hacked the game to get such information, would have known about any existing shinies and told us in the case that they were present.

I hope this helped.
