Welcome!

[Insert obligatory banner here]

This is INDEED the sprite art war thread, but I'm evidently running a little behind.

So down to the nitty gritty, because I would like to take up as little time as possible.

Basically this, accept the challenge of the week, and award your team with points. I will reveal the challenges every Sunday at times which I am able to.

Check the WAR XI Main Thread and Rules (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=117902).

The eight teams include:

Guardian Units of Nations (G.U.N.) (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=117904)
Team Obscurity (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=117906)

I will be dishing out my points like so:

1st place: 3 points
2nd place: 2 points
3rd place: 1 point

If there is no 3rd entry it is a tie, both participants get 3 points.

If there is no 3rd or 2nd entry, 1st place gets 6 points.

If there is a tie for 1st place, each person will get 2 points, and 2nd place will get 1 point. There will be no 3rd place.

If there is a tie for 2nd, 1st place will get 2 points, as well as the 2 who placed 2nd, there will be no 3rd place.

If there is a tie for 3rd place, 1st and 2nd place will receive 2 points, and the tied 3rd place contestants will get 1 point each.

If there is a 3 way tie for 1st place, everyone will get 2 points. There will be no 2nd or 3rd place.

If there is a 3 way tie for 2nd place, 1st place will get 3 points, everyone in 2nd will get 1, and there will be no 3rd place.

If there is a 3 way tie for 3rd place, 1st place will get 2 points, and everyone else will obtain 1 points. An unfortunate downfall to being 2nd place in this situation, but I did consider you better, you can take that much with you.

If there is a tie greater than that, I will hang myself.

My rules are as follows:

- No plagiarism (Stealing someones art and claiming it as your own is no feat I want seen in my war thread)
- No flaming (Insulting another person's sprite art is my job, not yours)
- No reusing old sprites (Sprites used from a previous war, or other projects are prohibited, it must be new and original to you)
- No spamming (No chatting it up on my thread, keep it professional)
- No Pe2k Rule breaking (keep it fun for everyone)

On a side note: you can only submit one sprite per week, unless the contest states otherwise. However, you may change it freely before the deadline at the end of the week.

--

I will be judging based on these qualities:

Neatness: /10
Originality: /10
Outlines: /10
Shading: /10
Relevance: /10

I want to point out Outlines, because you be like, WHY?! and I be like BECAUSE PEOPLE FORGET ABOUT THE LINES AND IT DESTROYS QUALITY!!

So yeah, there's that. Enjoy this year's Sprite Art war. I know I will.

Now keep it clean and keep it fun.

In homage to this image: http://www.halolz.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/halolz-dot-com-pokemonblackwhite-swadloon-iamthebatman.jpg

I have decided to take an extra step and actually color Swadloon like a bat. A Golbat, that is.

So, the light blue and purple comes from Golbat, while the dark blue comes from Crobat's wings.

I would never do this again, even if I was paid.

I LIED. I'm doing it again, minus the fusion. Also, minus the payment. That recolor last year had the cruddiest color scheme...

Posting a WIP so you guys know I'm actually trying it.

I know it's uncreative to do the same sprite two years in a row, but Final Fantasy X just has the freaking pull on me and I love it. I can't get away from it. </3 And I love a challenge.

Alrighty, well, No more entries are to be submitted until Monday when the next contest starts. Because it starts Monday, that means roll on through Saturday, and end Saturday night, as opposed to ending on Friday night. This will happen from now on, so get used to it, unless my bosses change it again. In which case, deal with it, because you'll still have 5 days to make a sprite. =P

I will now begin judging your sprites.

Week I
Results!

Pre-judge Note:

I just want to say that I saw a few of you pulling out some crazy and unneeded tactics in order to win. This contest was meant to be very easy, and very simple. Change the colors of the sprite, that's it. I was depending on this week to full of wondrous color pallets and amazing sprites that looked the same physically, but had totally different and original colors that I had never seen before. I got amazing sprites, but I didn't get what I wanted. I expected to have a hard time deciding a winner with all the near-perfect scores that I'd have just handed out. I'm kinda disappointed. I am not going to go easy on you, especially if you're new. But I will help you get better, if I feel you need the help. I won't hold your hand, I'll tell you what I believe you should do, and hope that you do better, next time. Everything I judge will have an explanation as to why I judged your piece the way that I did. There will be no biased, evident in this week's judging. With this said, scroll down to see your results, and expect the unexpected.

Normal recolor is normal. It was kinda bland, but it kept to the theme, which was kinda the point to begin with. While I admire and respect the homage to the Batman, Crobat and Golbat are not Batman. What I like seeing, and any judge likes to see is an original pallet, something unique, and never been done before. So, your originality suffered. Still you followed everything down to the bar, and you got a good score for it. Kudos.

As I personally don't consider these patterns any form of recoloring, apparently it is. Sure, you changed the colors, but when you added an actual biome to Drowzee's body you turned it into something completely different. However, I will judge it as it is meant to be. The lines I feel could have had less black around the belly and its left arm (the one not poking out from behind the head). There is also but one alternative shade for the top of Drowzee, which is like, Pokemon yellow style shading, while the bottom is chaotic and undetermined, as sand usually is. While I'm aware that it's the natural shading of Drowzee, which is sad, you probably could have used a different Pokemon, or maybe could have added more depth to the shading. All the same, it still looks pretty.

My only issue with this is the very thing you worked the hardest on, while really like it, it left me puzzled and looking at it a few times to determine the placement of the skirt itself. See, if the checkers weren't perfectly placed together, basically ignoring the dynamics of the skirt, but flowing with the frills and waves in the skirt, I would have made it all 10s, I'm certain of this. However, I still adore this, because other than the skirt, it is a perfect recolor, it's neat, it's original, the lines look great, and the shading is fine, minus the difficulty I had determining it on the skirt.

While I sit and wait for my eyes to recover, it's a good thing I can type without looking at the keyboard. First off, well done. Let me explain something before I say anything else. Think about a music judge, American Idol or something. When a judge hears a genre he doesn't like, he's not allowed to knock of points because he doesn't like the genre, if the contestant doing that genre right, and it sounds like the music that he so evidently dislikes, he has to give them high marks. That's what I've done here. Granted, it's not very original, and it hurts my eyes to look at it, but it IS a recolor. It is based on the colors of 3D anaglyph, but is not 3D anaglyph. You've done good, here. Kudos.

I have come to the conclusions the shading for B/W and B/W2 are just the worst. It's so bland and unappealing and it makes me sad. So your score for that section isn't your fault. You still got a pretty good score, because it was a recolor, and nothing extra or over-the-top like some of your fellow contestants. Good work.

A type change? Is that what you've done here? I shouldn't even accept this. I shouldn't have judged it. Dude, seriously? I mean it's a good sprite, and I'm sure your intentions were pure. But it's not a recolor, it's a type change. You turned a Poison Pokemon into a Fire Pokemon. If it were a type change contest, you'd get some really high marks. But, it's not that. I'm kinda sad about this, because this is really good.

This one in particular was posted after a very similar sprite (pattern related, and it was on the same team, so I don't know how to take that) was posted, so the originality took a blow. It's also very dark, and difficult to see anything going on. There's a whole lot of black going on in this sprite's outlines, that's pretty bad, even with a sprite this dark, you could have gone without black lines in a lot of places. The pattern on the face is very chaotic, and it's difficult do make out out what's going. Props for creativity, which I should have probably made a category, but I didn't. It's pretty as a whole, but kinda all over the place.

Fox, buddy. Your sprite just doesn't have that WOW factor that I'm lookin' for. It's so plain. That's the best way to describe it. I need originality, and I've seen stuff like this a billion times. I do like that you kept it relevant, and the shading is perfect. But the color is dreadful, on top of that it's all one color. There's so much more you could have done with this, and it's like you didn't on purpose. I grant you that it's different from all the other submissions, but I know you're better than this. C'mon bud, pick it up.

Oh look, an animation. If you thought it would get you more points, that would be a silly thought. In fact, because of the animation, I had to judge every single frame, and that annoyed me. On a couple frames, I saw pixels placed sporadically on the arms and outlines while they moved, even if it was on the original sprite, you could have changed it to look smoother and cleaner. So, I deducted points from that, stray pixels also take away from the neatness of the sprite and the animation.

I don't want to know the reference, or why you colored it this way. I want it to look good, I want it to WOW me. I want to look at a sprite and I want to be like, "this is awesome, let me show it to all of my friends." Your sprite, I don't want to show it off. Why? Because it's just as plain as Foxamivalth's submission. It's an MS Paint pallet colored sprite. That means you used shade from the standard pallet given to you on MS Paint, rather than trying to come up with your own. So you lose points on originality. The only thing this tells me is that you're either a beginner, or you're not even trying, which won't get you anywhere. The antennae and claws are practically solid blue, there's no actual shade or appeal to them. When working with blue, especially that tone, you have to get a little more sporadic with the brightness of the shade so it pops out a little more than normal. Widen your range of shading, so that it looks better. There is also SO MUCH black line happening in this sprite, all of this a big no-no, these are things that you need to work on. I'm not insulting your sprite, I'm merely saying you should work and become better than where you are now.

With that, I say congratulations to the winners, and better luck next time for those who didn't win. I can honestly say that these could have been better. There wasn't a single perfect score, but this is only the first week. You've probably already noticed how very nit-picky I am over certain things, if you have any concerns as to how I judged your sprite, PM me, and I will clarify any confusion. So if I haven't scared you off, I'll see you for Week II.

Right now!

This weeks challenge is a bit of a mouth full:

"Edit a Non-Pokemon Sprite and Make it Look Like a Pokemon or Trainer."

and it is literally that. You have you edit a sprite from another game (not a custom sprite that someone made.) And make it look like a Pokemon or a Trainer. You cannot use parts from the game sprites, but you may use their color pallets if you desire. Remember that I look for originality, so keep to your own creativity as possible. I look forward to seeing your results!

Recolor a Pokemon's BW sprite with a color pallet you created. Include the pallet in the image of your submission.



Recolor
---
Simple, find any sprite, change the colors of it, be sure to include the original image with it, so I can notice the differences. Best recolor wins.





Fuse together a Pokemon sprite and a non-Pokemon sprite.

Is this an Epic Fail of a Sprite? Yes (although it does look nice zoomed in?). Alas, this is for the giggles and a chance to try something other than Creative Writing during this WAR - therefore this is an entry just for the sake of it :L

This was quite a difficult task for me :sweat: but hey - do I expect amazingly high points? Nah - but this was fun P:

Spinarak to Bael from Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones. Perhaps spider to spider isn't the most original, but I definitely had to edit this quite a bit to make it work (ex. removing some of the legs). Not exactly a quick recolor. I reimagined the black knees of the spinarak as armor pieces on the bael, giving the appearance that they cover yellow joints.

Because you kids can't read, I'm rejecting these sprites, and you have roughly a day and a half to make new ones. Otherwise they will not be judged.

No, they're not allowed to. You're only allowed the color pallets. I also reject lisa_lynn's sprite, as I noticed the tail, however I checked the sprites for the Pokemon used and I didn't see any equivalent matches to the actual sprites themselves. Only with those three.

My tail is scratched, I just used the real tail for reference. It's supposed to look like Liepard's tail, isn't that the point of the challenge? If I C&P'd it, it would have a curve instead of being so blocky, I also didn't outline it and tried to shade it to stay consistent with the original hyena sprite...

They looked blatantly copied from the sprite. I wanted originality, not for it to look spot on like the pokemon, but also not to the point where I can't tell what it is. I'm sorry if I'm being rude, and White Knight, if you did indeed scratch those things on the clamperl, then I will take back my rejection, be it that you're more pleased with the clamperl as opposed to the Natu. But with Lisa Lynn and White Knight, they made those parts look so much like the original parts of the sprite, that it just took a single look to make it seem like those parts were copied.

So I'm a bit tough about it. Believe me when I say it's with the best intentions. I could have chose my words better, but if I think there's something wrong with it, it's optional to do something about it, or don't. I can't promise better points, but I can guarantee a grade, unless I outright refuse it. Which at this point is just Foxamivalth's sprite, which I'm kinda sad that he didn't make a new one. I'm not trying to make excuses for being rude or being a jerk. I'm aware of my actions, and if they're upsetting people, I shall resolve to be a bit easier on the participants. But I have my reasons for being so harsh.

Anyways, it's Sunday, new entries won't be accepted. I will begin grading.

White Knight, you're free to choose which sprite you like more, and I apologize for rejecting your sprite.

Better. I'm sure everyone understands! The thing is, I know I miss things all the time, and it makes me sad to be berated instead of helped. Not that you berated people, but y' know, being gentle helps sometimes. XD And maybe you should check next time for things like White Knight's stuff. I was kinda unclear about a few things to do with this one as well, so I think my thing might have been rejected if I had posted it D: As in, by changing things too much (completely scratch, but still) so sometimes things can get confusing as well.

Results
Week II

Pre-judge Note:

Hi again, peasants! I mean.. people! So this week there was a bit of confusion. I didn't think i'd need to go into extreme detail about what I wanted, but I guess it came off differently to some than to others. While this is perfectly fine, I'm picky, and I know what I want. If you're not about to meet those standards, don't expect a lot of points. Here's what I wanted, and excuse my previous harshness, but at least I'm honest. Anyways, what I wanted was a bit more originality, creativity, Last week, I didn't really care, because it was like, Week I, but in the next 3 weeks, you'll understand me a little better. This is Week II, pick it up, you know? Up the ante just a little bit. Anyways, looking past all the confusion, some really good sprites have emerged, so scroll down to see your results (as well as other peoples' results that you might not care about)!

Congratulations, you colored a Kirby purple, and gave it a tattoo. Doesn't really look much like Koffing, though. I can't quite give ya points for relevance because of that. If you had added some bumps and an "8D" sort of face, maybe scratched a bit of clouds, it would have been something amazing. The lines on that particular sprite are confusing, and they seem a bit off to me, not really your doing, but I can't say it deserves a good grade because of it. Props for the cuteness, though, like a little vampire Kirby. I'm betting right now, Velocity is kinda happy he didn't go with the Kirby sprite. Better luck, next time, though.

Very plain, again. You aren't taking any chances are ya? I mean, yeah, it's a Whiscash, it looks like a Whiscash, but it's just a recolor with a W on his forehead. It would have scored you near perfect points, last week. I understand you were pressed for time, but you still could have done more. Maybe the patterns on the fin, or removed some of the whiskers. I mean, I like it, but it's not as much as I'd hoped it'd be.

Just a few things, like, the wings, there's a thicker black line on the wings of the original sprite, you could have done something about that, and it's all very blocky. I understand that you were also pressed for time, but it doesn't take a whole lot of time for some minor tweaking. Some of the lines were a little squared off, whouch should never be the case, and the face is a bit smooshed, where the beak is an obvious feature, as well as the eyes.

My only real two issues with this is the lines around the tail area are too black, which differs from the rest of the sprite, and the face lacks shading all together. Other than that this is a reall good edit, and I like it a lot. Very original, very nice. Kudos.

What were you thinking with those black lines around the legs, and head? Those eyes don't look like spinarak's eyes at all. I approve of the patterns on the backside and it's very cartoony, and appealing. Kinda dropped the ball this time, but hey, work on those lines, that's TOO MUCH black line.

You didn't get last place, this time. But you still need a lot of work. Neatness, let me tell you why this was low, Neatness is affected by everything else, and on top of that, you know those little back dots, and the kinda stray line by the rear leg, I don't care if it was on the original sprite, you could have removed them, and it would have looked better. Also, youre still using solid black lines where they aren't needed, Granted, Zoroark is a black Pokemon, so it's slightly forgivable, but there's just some areas where it didn't need completely black lines. keep working on this, because Week IV is gonna be one stupid hard test for you.

Your entire outline is black. But I suppose that's the style. Do I hate that? No. Do I dislike it? Yes. But there's not much I can say about it that hasn't already drained me severely, today. The rest of it is fantastic. I love the expression, it's adorable, the shading is acceptable, it's clean, and it looks like a Vaporeon. It could have done without the stripes, but still, a really good job on that. For anyone looking through the sprites to see if this was copy and pasted at all, and it surprisingly wasn't. So That's why this got a good score, to be honest.

Welcome to 20+ hours in MS Paint. That recoloring must have taken forever. It also looks like a Charizard. So, besides the lines and the awkward jaw placement, it's a really well done sprite. I enjoy the colors, too. Good job.

Once more, congratulations to the winners! My biggest beef is these lines. You're ignoring lighting factors when you put solid black lines. They only need to be in places that face away from lighting. Even then one should try to shade them darker without it being totally black. Keep up the work! I'll see you for Week III!

Week III
Topic:

"Oh Maw Gawd! HOW DO I DO THIS FUSION?!"

What do I want you to do here? Fuse a minimum of 6 Pokemon sprites together into a single mega monster sprite. This is the biggest test for fusions that I can think of. Remember to keep it clean, I refuse to judge a sloppy mess of a fusion. I would never ask you to do something that I couldn't do myself. Refer to my past works to see my renditions. Be sure to include the 6 reference sprites separately.

The trick this time:

You can't use a Pokemon that a previous entry has used!

For instance, Foxamivalth posts first and has, like, Poochyena, Wailord, Kabutops, Raichu, Dewgong, and Stunfisk all fused together. (If you decide this, sir, good luck with all that) Those Pokemon would ultimately be his, and no one else could use them.

Good luck, I'm quite excited to see the results that you all have!

This is a negative. You're not allowed to scratch any part of this, you have to make them work together as whole. Even if it's something like using the certain small features on one sprite, just make sure you use a noticeable amount of those small features. Like in one of mine, I used the eyes and neck ring of an Ekans. Also be particular of using that one Pokemon's color pallet. This is just a thought, I'm not actually telling anyone to do this.

Reserving, however, is frowned upon, but is not forbidden. If you all wanna be lame, go ahead and reserve and take my fun away. =P

sammy0295
07-09-2012, 11:22 PM
Call me lame, but I'm reserving some Pokemon because I have my sprite mostly done, but I still need to figure out how to add another Pokemon, which could take a while, and I do not want to have start over because someone steals my Pokemon.

So, I'd like to reserve Nidoking, Deoxys, Terrakion, Swampert, and Metang.

Few things:

2. Do color pallets count as parts?

Can't say I'm in this. I was only able to do it last week because I had some time off. Might have to pass.

Just out of curiosity, did you pick six pokemon that all start with L on purpose?

Thanks. Yours is pretty awesome.

This is a negative. You're not allowed to scratch any part of this, you have to make them work together as whole. Even if it's something like using the certain small features on one sprite, just make sure you use a noticeable amount of those small features. Like in one of mine, I used the eyes and neck ring of an Ekans. Also be particular of using that one Pokemon's color pallet. This is just a thought, I'm not actually telling anyone to do this.

Reserving, however, is frowned upon, but is not forbidden. If you all wanna be lame, go ahead and reserve and take my fun away. =P

Did you mean absolutely no scratching, or nothing original? Like the knees and chest on my sprite are not technically from their respective sprites. Is that okay?

I'm sorry for my lateness, guys! Been ridiculously busy. I'm going to post the next challenge before I post the results.

This week's challenge is:

"Create-A-Comic"

Pretty simple create a sprite comic. The theme for the comic. "Comedy"

It shouldn't take a whole lot of explaining, you just gotta make a comic. Make me laugh. I will be judging this particular round in this way:

Originality: /15
Comedic Value: /15
Creativity: /10
Neatness: /5
Relevance: /5

Nothing else. There are no restrictions, but you won't be getting bonus points from scratching EVERYTHING. xD

Okay so my issue was this: Shading. You did a whole lot of copy pasting, but didn't take into consideration the shading. I don't consider changing the brightness of the sprite a form of scratching. This also effected your outlines as you didn't bother to change those much, either. This will probably be something to consider next year, if I am not the judge, again. If you have an issue with the way I scored you, or would like to understand why your score is the way it is, OR you want advice or help on how to improve, feel free to PM me. Either way, if fusion comes up next year, and shading is part of the scoring, I definitely recommend working on that.

I'm happy with third place! XD I always used to pay attention to outlines but they've kinda slipped from view. =/ I was kinda confused, Caleb, what you considered scratching and what you didn't, on account of how changing the shading too drastically could have been interpreted as a form of scratching. I, for one, didn't consider it a part of scratching because it's more to do with the overall composition, but I realised that my shading wasn't that great. xD And I also rushed it a bit to ensure I got it finished on time, but now's no time for excuses!

Good work, you guys! :D Your sprites were great, so well done. Everyone did really well!

Pokemon Center Pick Ups!

http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k199/Tallyns/spritcom.png

link. (http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k199/Tallyns/spritcom.png)

I've never made a sprite comic before, so I went for the humor points.

Well, According to my higher ups, the Sprite Art Week VI will not be receiving points, as there was only 1 entry, and that 1 entry didn't do a good enough job by their standards, and thus, not even I get my judges point this week, because I started the week so late.

With that said, I wanna say that I think the comic was cute. Was it the best? No. However, it's way better than my first ever comic. Mine straight up had a sprite of Skeletor screaming I AM EVIL! for 3 scenes and then the next scene had me sleeping on a bed in a gas chamber. SOO! your first comic is good. I'm proud of you, and if it were up to me, I'd at least give you half of the total. and deduct my point still, because I started it late.

Anyways this week's theme is pretty hard, but you'll have options and fun with this.

"Omega Supreme Deluxe Super Chocolatey Fudge Coated Mega Ultra Alpha Beta Gamma Pixelized Perfection!"

Say THAT 10 times fast.. go ahead. =P

Anyways, yeah, so with this. you're scratchin' a sprite. Don't care what it is, but you gotta make it 100%, and it's gotta be yours. I'm going to judge it like this:

Creativity: /15
Shading: /15
Lines: /10
Colors: /10
Neatness: /15
Animation: /10
Effort: /20
Relativity: /5
Total: /100

This is going to be my harshest grading. You maybe wondering: Do I have to animate it? Answer: No, but be prepared to lose points for not animating it. =D I'm kidding, Animation is a bonus. You don't have to. I won't hate you for not animating your scratch sprite.

I realize that would take a lot of time, and I don't want to see anything for at least 2 days. I don't care if you have it done in 20 minutes, you're going to hold onto it, revise it, and see if there's nothing else you can do to it. In doing this, you'll automatically obtain 10 points to your Effort score, I want good sprites for this last week. So, don't give me some sloppy mess of a sprite, do you understand? Effort means just that. TRY to make it look good. I'm not trying to scare you, because I will indeed be accepting all entries (even though every person is still only allowed one).

With that said, let's see how you do. Scratch a sprite, that's all you have to do. You get a bonus if you can make it move and look good. =]

Okay, so I'm currently having problems with this, and I don't know why, but I'm posting this because its rather late, and I just want to say I have this done. But despite the fact that it's saved as png, every time I upload it, it turns all sucky. I'm working on fixing it.

EDIT
Alright, so I got it to work.
It's a little dragon, obviously. It's the first scratch sprite I've ever finished, and while it's not that great, I'm happy enough with it. Also, he's wearing mittens. Dragon mittens.
