→ Creativeness: 9 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 8 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 10 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 8 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5 points.
→ Other: 4 points.
TOTAL: 44 points.
Comments: I really do like the idea, but it was a bit plain to me. The eggshell on the body was pretty well fitting, and the legs and wings were a good idea. The recolouring was also good, but for me it lacked that extra bit of specialness.



Mawile-Danmaku
http://i51.tinypic.com/fyldw4.png
→ Creativeness: 9 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 9 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 6 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 8 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5 points.
→ Other: 3 points.
TOTAL: 40 points.
Comments: This is a pretty good sprite. I like the idea, and I like that you didn't overdo it or underdo it. However, the palette went totally wrong, and the underside looks wrong with the white as the main colour, as do the unnecessarily dark outlines. Where the white joins with the underside ruins it for me, and the general blending of the colours, which didn't work. I also don't like how the shell is shaded, especially in terms of the palette.



Sequentio
http://i56.tinypic.com/zmcdxx.png
→ Creativeness: 10 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 9 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 9 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 9 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5 points.
→ Other: 4 points.
TOTAL: 46 points.
Comments: I really like this one. I like how you shaded the skin right near the shell, to make it look like the shell was a costume (and therefore cast shadows when being worn). However, the random bits of shading on the shell of that same area (around the spikes of where it 'joins' with the body) were unnecessary, and the blend of that grey outline against the skin was a mix of colour that could have been better if the colours had been different. I also hoped you'd do something with the red smoke stuff coming from its head.

→ Creativeness: 9 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 9 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 6.5 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 7 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5 points.
→ Other: 3 points.
TOTAL: 39.5 points.
Comments: You're a beginner, and I took that into account. But this is pretty good, considering you're a rookie spriter. The thing that threw me off was the way the shell sat on the sprite. It's a bit awkward, and lack of attention to detail (that pixel out of place on the bottom of the shell which is presumably hard to miss but easy to fix, the crooked outline of the right ear in a few places, the double-outline on the right arm) lost marks for your sprite. Also, the pikachu's shades of yellow are quite odd, and I wasn't sure what you would achieve by changing the palette to a stranger, greyer yellow. Same with the blue ear tips. I really like the idea, though. With some training and more practice, you can turn sprites like this into really impressive ones. :]

TOTAL: 43 points.
Comments: I do quite like this. Only, it's a simple paint job that doesn't show any kind of actual dressing-up or whatever, which is a important part of the contest, I do believe. I was unsure about a couple of the outlines (such as the small part of light grey on the left side of the wing, where it's lighter than the rest of the outline but it's around dark shading), and it seemed a bit plain in some areas, being just white.



#1 - Sequentio (46)

Well done, guys! I hope my criticism doesn't shoot you down or anything. You all did really well, and just remember most of what I said was criticism, so that's the harshest comments you could get, really.

I'll do this when I get home from work. It'll be in this post. =]

Face:


→ Creativeness: 8/10 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 7/10 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 7/10 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 7/10 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5/5 points.
→ Other: 4/5 points.
TOTAL: 38/50 points.

Comment: I severely dislike the 5th gen Pokemon, but don't let this have you believe I'm biased because of it. I dislike some of the shading, because it's all too OUT there, but at the same time very plain and predictable. I do dig that you gave it feet, though, but some of the lines are a solid where they shouldn't be, and it stands out, and bothers me. If things stand out on a sprite, it doesn't flow, and you can't expect an immaculate score. Keep working, keep trying. Practice = improvement.

Mawile-Danmaku:


→ Creativeness: 7/10 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 8/10 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 6/10 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 5/10 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5/5 points.
→ Other: 2/5 points.
TOTAL: 33/50 points.

Comment: Let tell you why I judged yours so low. Because all black lines do NOT = okay because the Pokemon is white. I personally think the whole toge-dress-up idea was dumb, the Pokemon's colors are horrid for it. But it's not my place. Your shading is severely lacking, Yeah, Make it white, remove the horns from the shell, and put em on Lapras' head. It's all just so.. bright. Except the lines, which are like, wait, what? I just.. I dunno, I didn't like it. Better luck, next time, eh? Cause you're a good sprite artist, but every artist has that slump, I guess. xD


Sequentio:


→ Creativeness: 8/10 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 10/10 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 9/10 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 10/10 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5/5 points.
→ Other (appeal): 9000+ (5)/5 points.
TOTAL: 47/50 points.

Comment: Look at it.. No ALL BLACK lines.. Proper shading (apart from the area around the paws).. This sprite really only lacks originality, which is difficult to do, since you have to do the same thing that 4 other people also did. Not your fault for that. Sprite = win.

Pichu1:


→ Creativeness: 8/10 points.
→ Outfit Matches: 9/10 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading: 7/10 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 8/10 points.
→ Theme relevance: 5/5 points.
→ Other: 3/5 points.
TOTAL: 40/50 points.

Comment: A decent score for a decent sprite. You DIDN'T use all black lines, I'm proud of you. However you did simply draw a zig-zach line over pikachu, and colored it white, added patters, and called it a day. Double outlines threw me off, a bit, and..

@ Xanthe: Like I said, colored pikachu white, didn't really scratch stuff.

You're a beginner, Pichu1, and here you are with 2nd place in my judging. Congratulations.

Sammy0295:

→ Creativeness: 7/10 points.
→ Outfit Matches (dress, accessories, make up, etc): 8/10 points.
→ Colour Matches and Shading:10/10 points.
→ Overall Skill and Outcome: 8/10 points.
→ Theme relevance: 4/5 points.
→ Other (appeal, appearance, etc): 2/5 points.
TOTAL: 39/50 points.


Comment: Xanthe, I'm convinced you're just too nice to these guys/girls. Here with me, they swallow this massive pill. Like, "OH MAN, WHAT KIND OF LOW SCORE AM I GONNA GET?!" Sammy, 39 out of 50 is better than 2 other people, so you're smack dab in the center of the votes, for me. Nice blend of colors and shading, purely flawless. Or just about, so. Nothing actually really bothers me about it, minus originality... again. Not your fault. Keep at it, and..


EVERYONE KEEP GOING! Those of you who are good, keep at it, and for those of you who aren't that good, keep practicing.

Thanks! But I don't understand how the shell is a bit akward on the body. And the shades of 'Yellow' come from the body of Togepi. And this is I think Ruby/Saphire/Emerald sprite, therefore the ear is different. :)
