Welcome to the Evolutionary Sprite Challenge!

This is a sprite contest where we will invent new evolutions for some of our favorite Pokemon.
It will be a 3 round contest, and each round will last one week. In the first round we will all create an evolution for Jynx.
Before the next round a poll will be created in which all PE2K members can vote for which Pokemon we will create an evolution for.
And in the final round all contestants will create a new evolution for thier own personal favorite pokemon.
Sound fun? OK!

In this contest you may use existing sprites to "Frankenstein" an entry. But I would encourage you to scratch as much of it as you can. As that will be more original and net you more points ultimately.

Sprites will be judged on a 1 to 10 scale in the following 3 categories.

Color: Which covers how well the colors chosen work with the sprite & the shading of the sprite.

Composition: In the case of Frankenstiened or Semi-frankenstiened sprites this category will judge how cohesive the constituate parts are (how well it's put together) & how difficult we think it was to make the monster.
And... in the case of scratch this category covers: line art, construction (pose, anatomy, & proportion), & difficulty.

Originality: How inventive and interesting the sprite is as a whole.
Naturally scratched sprites will garner more points in this category than entries made from existing sprites, but if your entry is inventive enough it could still do pretty well here.



Well, you have your first challenge "create an evolution for Jynx".
You have until next Saturday the 28th at midnight to turn it in. But no rush. Take your time on it, and do your very best.
Good luck,

I will also need one or two people to help judge the contest as well. Just post if you are interested.

Alright I think that I will join. I will work on my sprite, and edit this post when I'm finished. Just keep coming back to this.

EDIT: I have the sprite. I call it, Cursekiss. (Jinx? Smoochum? *shot*) Also: Those long stringy things are tails. Please also note the sneakers! Very human-y. Also, since Ice and Psychic is a wierd combination, I have decided to emphasize that in the picture. *Shot again*

This is a great idea. Although I'm terrible at scratch spriting, I'll try.

I'll give it a shot. It should be like Medusa.

Cool; Mitsuko, Pika, & I will be judges.
We could still use a few more contestants though.

01-23-2006, 02:32 AM
Well, I have finished mine. It's in my other post, I edited the post. It's crudeish, but I think I like it. Look! It's got sneakers! But it's actually, like, 3% Espeon because of its two tails, even though one is ice and one is psychic.

I think I'll enter.

I think Jynx should evolve to look more... appealing.

Its all scratch. :P Good Luck to all!

Sounds like fun. I will try my hand at this.

I made my entry yesterday, and it took all day. :eek:

I present you, Sedusa.
http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e362/xlandx/sprites/b0f225fe.png

My concept of the Jynx evolution is that it masters it's Psychic abilties, and controls it's hair, and body, with Psychic powers. It outgrows hands because of the ability to control it's hair. It also becomes lazy, so as a result, it moves with Psychic powers.

Surly Professor
01-26-2006, 06:41 PM
Good entries so far!

Lets start nominating Pokemon we want to evolve next round.

Contest participants (judges & contestants) get to nomimate their choices first, and then if we have room other members may offer nominations.
Please no more than 2 noms per person, because we can't have more than 20 in a poll.

I'ld like to nominate Sharpedo & Ariados

.AzureLight
01-26-2006, 06:45 PM
I nominate Farfetch'd and Mawile. :tongue:

Omis
01-26-2006, 07:04 PM
I would like to nominate a Chimecho evo.

RocketMeowth
01-26-2006, 07:08 PM
I would like to nominate a Relicanth and Luvdisc.

Angelic Kitsune
01-27-2006, 01:18 AM
Alright then, I nominate Sableye and Ditto. :P

Togepi
01-27-2006, 01:24 AM
I think I have an evolution for Salebeye...but I nominate Airidos. He could use an evolution.

TVTMaster
01-27-2006, 06:28 PM
I nominate a mid-evolution for Carvahna and Sharpedo. Tiny red fish -> giant dark blue shark + evolution = not very compatible.

Orthar
01-27-2006, 08:19 PM
I nominate an evolution for Mew

Surly Professor
01-27-2006, 08:42 PM
Hey Togi, Boogi, until all the challenge participants have chimed in I can't take those suggestions. You do have another 2 days to work on an entry though if you'ld like to participate.

I nominate a mid-evolution for Carvahna and Sharpedo. Tiny red fish -> giant dark blue shark + evolution = not very compatible.
Well, it's only half a shark. And there are evolutions that are much more incompatible.
Dragonite::tongue:.
A remora that turns into an octopus. :tongue:
But if the Carvahna Sharpedo line gets picked (doubt it). You could certainly do that.

Miravana
01-27-2006, 10:24 PM
Ooh, I would certainly like to see a Chimecho evo. Many possibilities. :3

Surly Professor
01-28-2006, 08:24 PM
It's the final day of round one!
You have about 8 and a half hours to complete, or put a final polish on your entries.
Good luck guys,

Also we still need round two nominations from participants.
If no new noms are made by participants by tomorrow morning we'll open the noms up to all members until we get 20.

Cursekiss
http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/8899/cursekiss2ne.png

Color: 1/10, I don't think the colors you chose for the Psychic & Ice sides are the best. They are kinda harsh. And it's face looks like one of the freeze screens from an NES.
Composition: 2/10, It has stretch marks and it's difficult to tell it actually has 2 tails.
Originality: 2/10, It's just a stretched recolored Jynx with 2 tails and floaty star thingies.
Sorry Sonic, better luck next round.

Color: 7/10, I really like the hair. The shading on the face isn't quite right, but it's ok. All your other colors & shading are good.
Composition: 8/10, Good pose & anatomy.
Originality: 7/10, Jynx evolves into... a supermodle bellydancer!

Color: 8/10, Again I really like the hair, and the dress & skin tone look pretty cool too.
Composition: 8/10, Cool pose,
Originality: 7/10, Jynx evolves into... an opera singer!

Jylxki (jill-kss-kigh)
http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/390/jynxevobyrocketmeowth2md.png

Color: 6/10, The shading on her shoulders & dress are a little off, but everything else looks ok.
Composition: 7/10, I like the shy "ah shucks" pose.
Originality: 6/10, Jynx doesn't look like she wants to kiss me anymore, but that's good.
______________________________
Lan
Sedusa
http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e362/xlandx/sprites/b0f225fe.png

Color: 6/10, the shading on the hair is kinda weak, but the arual glow makes up for it.
Composition: 4/10, Her face & body are pretty rudimentary, but I guess Jynx was always like that.
Originality: 7/10, Jynx evolves into... a Medusa!
______________________________


Good job guys.
I don't like eliminating people.
So even if you didn't do so hot this round you can make up for it in the next two.

Also: if you guys have any more nominations for next round go ahead & post 'em.
I'ld like to see a Marowak evo.

Cursekiss
http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/8899/cursekiss2ne.png

Color: 2/10, The hair color is an intresting shade. But most of the shading is off. On the main body it also apears as if you used an every other dot shading patern, which is not used in RSE sprites(only in GSC and RBY)
Composition: 3/10, It looks like its cheering, sorta... not really sure whats its supposed to be doing...
Originality: 2/10, the bulk of it is a streched Jynx sprite.

Angelic Kitsune
Svphesella! (Svee-sell-uh)
http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b126/Spinda00X/39ndbr.png

Color: 5/10, the shading.. its nice but kinda off. mainly the outlines are too big.
Composition: 6/10, Its body seems shakily built, and its at an akward angle in some areas.
Originality: 6/10, would have gotten a seven, but there were two other similar sprites entered.
______________________________
Omis
Kissem
http://h1.ripway.com/omis1123/Kissem.gif

Color: 5/10, This one also has thick outlines... Not a real good thing in sprites.
Composition: 7/10, An intresting pose, but its hard to tell much of it from under the dress
Originality: 6/10, same style as Angelic Ketsunes
______________________________
RocketMeowth
Jylxki (jill-kss-kigh)
http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/390/jynxevobyrocketmeowth2md.png

Color: 7/10, Good coloring, but as always, room for improvement
Composition: 8/10, A Nice laid back pose. I like it.
Originality: 8/10, Cuteish, a good job on originality.
______________________________
Lan
Sedusa
http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e362/xlandx/sprites/b0f225fe.png

Color: 6/10, I love the glow, but the face could ahve used more work.
Composition: 4/10, Hard to make at any distinguishing features. Shorter than Jynx which is very odd.
Originality: 8/10, bringing respect (out of fear) back to the evolution chain. Very creative.

theres my grades... who was the third judge?

Umbreon Shadow
01-31-2006, 09:46 PM
Mitsuko Suma is. Hey Surly, could I be a judge for the next one?

02-01-2006, 07:04 AM
Kin I nominate Luvdisc?

Pika57
02-01-2006, 12:56 PM

Then I call the other judging spot.

Surly Professor
02-01-2006, 04:44 PM
Kin I nominate Luvdisc?

Well, the nominations have already been made, but you're in luck. Luvdisc was nominated so you can vote for it in the other thread. :)

Hey Surly, could I be a judge for the next one?

That's fine. I'm glad you guys are interested in doing this again. Maybe every other month or so we can do one.

Surly Professor
02-03-2006, 01:28 AM
Luvdisc was chosen as our subject for round 2.
All participants have until Friday the 10th at midnight to turn in their evolutions.
No rush though, take your time, and do your very best.
There's a lot of room for creativity with Luvdisc.
It's a discus fish btw.
http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y26/NinjaLawyer/LuvDiscus.jpg
But it can become whatever you can imagine.

Mitsuko dropped out so we'll just have 2 judges this time. No biggie.

First round scores:

sonickid01: 13
Lan: 35
Angelic Kitsune: 39
Omis: 41
RocketMeowth: 42

You guys did good. But you'll really have to be on your toes now.
Scores will be doubled next round so anything can happen.

I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with.


Double post, I know, shut up.

Omis
02-04-2006, 05:52 PM
Nice I'll be the first to submit my entry.

Luvdisc evolves into Valenisc:

Wow, just, wow. That's like a perfect pokemon Mexican walking fish! Though, I think there should probably be an in-between evo from Luvdisk to Valenisk

Omis
02-05-2006, 01:15 PM
yeah, I was thinking about making an evo before it. But I dont think we can...?

02-05-2006, 03:51 PM
Wait, does Luvdisc evolve into Huntail or Borebyss? o_o Maybe I'm wrong...

Edit: Nevermind, I'm an idiot, that's Clampearl. xD

Anyway, still love your sprite, Omis. :D

RocketMeowth
02-06-2006, 03:22 AM
Well.......thanks to my cuz I am back (as eplained in sig). Here is my entry. I made it the day the contest started. The idea i have had for a good amount of days.

Anglish: http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/5696/anglish3li.png

I made it by combining a Diamond angle fish and a Golden Marble angel fish.

Heh, the Pokemon world needed an angel. So, why not make it a fish?

It is, you can't.
But the next Evolutionary Challenge will begin in roughly 2 weeks.

02-10-2006, 01:02 AM
Ok, just a reminder that your Luvdiscs are due tomorrow night.
You still have about 28 hours.

Umbreon Shadow
02-10-2006, 01:59 AM
2/5 people have entered their entries. Come on people, I look forward to judging!

Surly Professor

That was so cool that Luvdisc got picked the week before Valentine's Day.
Good choice guys, and a great job spriting by our two contestants.

Color: 9/10, Nice pastel pink pokemon. Excellent shading.
Composition: 8/10, Still just a tad bit light on the outlines. A darker outline between the head & body would have made it look more defined, and more 3D.
Originality: 9/10, Very cute, very Luvdisc-esque, very good job.

Color: 8/10, Cool colors, nice shading, I would've thrown a few more hues into the tower though.
Composition: 7/10, The line work is a little choppy, other than that a fine sprite.
Originality: 9/10, That's cute, I really like the long frilley fins. It reminds me of those Siamese Fighting Fish.

Lap two and it's already a 2 horse race.
We don't have alotta luck with these do we? :oops:
If it's not the judges who flake, it's the contestants. Le sigh~
The future contests will just be a single round a piece so it shouldn't be a problem.


Thank you Omis & Rocket for sticking it out.
Final round should be the most fun because it's wide open.
You just create an evolution to whichever pokemon you want.
Due next Friday at midnight.
Have fun & good luck.

This is a really neat idea for a contest, SP. The second challenge will have more active members, I think. Its a lot more recognized.

I thought that maybe the next should be Pre Evolutionary Sprite Challenge. Just a suggestion. XD

Here is my entry for the contest. Its an evolution for Skarmory.

Name: Pernomik

http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/5952/penormik5kp.png

In the Pokemon world it has been given the nickname the "Devil Bird" for its pure evil looks and for its large stature. Even its newly found behavior has added to this nickname. Due to this nickname this Pokemon is shunned and not wanted by a lot of trainers. Its a known fact to avoid giving a Skarmory a Metal Coat when under the light of the moon or this evolution will comence.

Yeah, I put thought into my sprite. hehe, well thats my entry.

Surly Professor
02-13-2006, 01:46 AM

Well if you guys are sure you're done, and don't want to put any final polishes on your entries, then I'll judge 'em tomorrow.

Color: 9/10, Excellent color & shading once again.
Composition: 7/10, Interesting, but it's a very strange pose, like he's slipping on ice or something.
Originality: 5/10, It's good, but it's a little bit too similar to kecleon.

Composition: 8/10, Nice pose.
Originality: 5/10, Neat, but little too similar to skarmary.

Good job guys, I'm pretty anxious to wrap this one up. Also me & the other judges seem to have quite a bit on our plates right now. So we're just gonna go right to the awards.


RocketMeowth you did very well and with a total score of 86 you should be very proud of your preformance. You placed 2nd in the first ever Evolutionary Sprite Challenge!
You have won a large sprite.

Can't wait to see the next competition! ;D
