Default .:~*Sprite of the Week #9*~:.


.:~*Logo by Tombi.*~:.


Hey, guys! I decided I'd take over SotW, since Tokyo hasn't really kept track of the last one, and yeah. I'd kinda hate to see this die--it has so much potential.
And yes. I did get permission...from Pokemon Trainer Sarah. That is, in case that is important.

However, the winner for the last round was Kuitaran / Gaygar, so congrats to him!


Anyhow, let's get this started, shall we?
Except (if it's okay with the staff), I've honestly contemplated this for a while, but this whole contest needs a bit of a revamp--so expect the categories to be just a little more challenging later on! After all, what good does an art contest do if it doesn't allow one to better their skills as an artist?

But I digress.

Rules
  • Of course, seeing that this is a pixel art contest, only pixel art is permitted. Images that have been clearly edited in photoshop or are just clearly not pixel art (e.g.: Oekaki and the like) will not be permitted.
  • Make sure to follow the theme of the current week. If it is obvious that the theme was not taken into account, it will not be added to the final poll. I will, however, kindly let you know this and encourage you to try to submit something different.
  • The deadline is Friday, April 1st. (hahahah...no, this is no April Fool's joke, either. XD). You have until then to submit an entry (the poll will be posted up sometime that night or the next morning --in GMT -6:00 time.). You are only permitted to post one entry per week, but you may freely edit your entry until the poll is posted up (any edits added after addition of the poll most likely won't be applied.).
  • Of course, I have referred to a "poll" quite a few times--thus, let me explain. Basically, when the deadline comes, a poll will be posted up that will give the community the opportunity to vote for their favorite. However, it is allowed, and highly encouraged that if you post any feedback on any of the entries, if you could give a tidbit explaining why you like / dislike said entry. However, you can also just go all out and critique all of the entries--THAT would be extremely smiled upon, but it's optional. (I will try to post up a small / detailed / whatever crit once I post up the poll...just to throw in my two cents.)
  • Unless there is a certain size limit range for a theme, just try to stay, at the most, within a 100x100 pixel range.
  • Pixel art must be made strictly for the contest--so do NOT submit anything pre-made. It takes the fun out of things, no?
  • Save as PNG or GIF (note: do NOT save as GIF in paint--generally, only Paint.Net, GIF Animator, Photoshop, and the like can give a clear GIF image.) only. JPEGs will not be added.
  • Just have fun with it, okay? ^_^

**************************************

Theme
And the theme for this week is...
Either edit an existing trainer sprite or make a completely custom one...into/of a character outside of the Pokemon world. (preferably from an anime, but it's your choice.). But, hey, it doesn't even have to be a character--feel free to make a real-world person. Please DO make sure that you specify the character/individual's name (if applicable) and what series he/she/it is from (once again, if applicable.). Or just give a reference picture. Or both if you really feel the need to.
  • Try to stray away from OCs and such...at least try. If you really want to make one of an OC, though (such as one of an original character that you believe to be really original and such), please go ahead by all means. I suppose this just makes it a bit easier to relate your creation to what he/she/it actually looks like. X3
  • Human characters / anthropomorphic (human-like) animals only. Please?
  • Most importantly, do not just copy + paste parts from other sprites onto yours and just say it's done. I advise you to at least make the edits completely custom, but if you feel that you need to use an already-existing piece as a reference or as a base for a structure of some sort, it really needs to be edited...possibly heavily edited. M'kay?

Entrants
--Agumonman (Finished)
--Kuitaran (Finished)
--AlterBridge (Finished)
--Randor (In progress)
.:~*(Any and every entrant will be recorded in this list.)*~:.

Have fun! The deadline will be April 1, 2011.
New date: April 8. This is the only and first time I will postpone this round until this next week, m'kay?

Great! I shall look foward to you finishing it, then. ^_^
And stylization isn't a necessarily negative thing--just as long as you can pull it off right! I mean, take the majority of eastern anime / manga artists, for example. They use...well, quite a bit of stylization.

But I digress. ^^;

Yeah, sorry it took so long to reply, though. Anyways, yes, you may enter, because I'm planning on extending the deadline to NEXT Friday. That, however, will be the first and only postponement for this round. ^^;
