Azumao's gift ^

Whoo! It's time to recreate the Evolutionary Sprite Challenge again! That's right, folks!

This round, let's kick it off with...

It got a preevolution in Diamond and Pearl. But we still don't see what this freak would look like in its next stage. Let's welcome the acting atrocity of telekinesis..

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/pictures/sugimori/sugimori122.png

Mr. Mime! Your job is to create an evolution for this clown.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
All entries will be due one week from today, or June 11th.
We are NOT in need of judges! We currently have 2 out of 2 judges necessary.

It will be a single round contest. In which your sprite will be graded by our panel of judges as outlined below. As well as put up for the popular vote, where every vote your sprite receives will add 1 point to your total score.
Every forum member is allowed to vote for any sprite they wish; even their own if that's the one they like best.

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.

Contestants may turn in up to 2 different entries, unless we have 10 or more participants in which case I can only allow 1 entry per person. Also, there may not be more than 20 entries total. If more than 20 entries are received it will be at my discretion as to which entries are cut from the competion based on which ones I believe have the least chance of placing. I'm sorry.

The final draft of your sprite that you turn in for judging is only to include your new sprite, nothing else, no side-by-side comparison to it's evolution, and no sprite towers please.

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, 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 really won't hurt you too much at all here.
We will also use this category to determine how well the sprite fits into the Pokemon universe. Does it really look like it could be a Pokemon?

----------------------------------------------------------

So hop to it, mimers.

This contest was approved by Matt, and recreated in honor of the legendary PE2Ker, Surly Professor. Surly, next time you come on, I hope you look at this and grin.

Matt, do you want to judge this, or are you intending on entering instead? We need one more besides Pokemole, two more would probably be best though.

Eh, it's probably better if you don't judge then. We need more experienced judges, rather than just people with no talent giving advice.

So, I've rethought and I think I'm going to take a judge out. So we're still in need of judges, because I have cut Pokefreak51 out.

I don't mean to be rude at all to either KOR888 or Pokefreak51, but it'd probably be best. Hope you guys understand!

Dang it, Azumao. I'd have to kill myself if I didn't say, Accepted!

Yeah, I know no one likes this clown. But I thought it might be a bit easier to give it an evo.

Entries look great so far. My outline is finished, onto coloring and shading...

Linoone, you are accepted!

A third judge would be nice at this point, if you want to sign up, everybody! But preferrably someone who's talented in spriting, please. Just being straightforward.

Anastasiar, nice job. I hope to see stuff from you in future ESCs.

I can't say the same for Matt, since I know he'll be in the future ESCs.

"I'm Matt. Oh, that sprite? That's an easy one. I've been working on it for a day, and now I'm 10% finished. All that's left is coloring and shading."

Lol. Man, you spend so much time on these sprites. It should be good. Can't wait!

So we have, like, five entries. It was like 10 when Surly was running it.

I also requested a second banner for more advertisement to make this more popular.

If you want, you can always put the banner on the first page in your sig to help people see this thread. :D

Hm, I understand if you don't want me to be a judge, but on the other hand, I know what makes a good sprite, and I'm fairly good at edits...what I meant to say is I REALLY can't scratch =/

Either way, it's your call, but if you want a third judge, I'm still here ;D If not, no offense taken, just thought I'd clear it up and maybe have another shot =P

06-07-2007, 05:11 AM
I suspect Matt will run off with first while Tabz takes a close second. I like Tablozza's concept more, but the proportion and great line structure of Matt's blew me away.

Makes me wish I could scratch. ^^;

Can i please be a judge?

sonickid01
06-07-2007, 02:13 PM
I did a quick search and I couldn't find any sprites by you. If you can show me one, I'll let you in.

Eh, this judge thing is getting a bit hectic. Everyone says they can be a judge, but can they really?

What I need is someone who is sure that they are skilled in spriting and knows a lot.

So if you don't think you know a whole lot about spriting, please don't offer to be a judge, because it will be trouble for both you and me and everyone participating in the contest.

Alrighty, Ali, can't wait for your sprite!

TVTMaster
06-07-2007, 06:03 PM
Moi shalt be le judge.

By the way, if you want people who know a lot about spriting, how come you let Linoone be a judge? This would happen to be his work.

I was hopin' you'd find this, TVT. Two judges and we're off!

I'm shortnin' the due date to the 11th. Two weeks is really long, and we need a week for judging plus poll.

Se Fin! This took me forever because this morning at eight o'clock, my area had a power outage, and the power didn't come back on until 4:40... Anyways, I finally finished my clownish, weirdo scarecrow thing...

Sprite: http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/6972/mimeevoer0.png

Written position description: Standing on its leg, arms out as if it were on an invisible scarecrow pole, sock things filled with air and wriggling, sheets (clothes) swaying in the wind

Name: (Undecided, I'll refer to it as: "they")

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 855 lbs.

Gender Ratio: 100% Male; 0% Female; 0% Genderless

Species: Funny Scarecrow Pokemon

Type: Psychic

Evolution line: Mime Jr. + Mimic known = Mr. Mime + Raggedy Doll = ???

Description: They’re exactly like living scarecrows, their leg is like a pole and they always stay in the same position: standing like its arms are hanging off of an invisible scarecrow pole. Even though they always keep a straight face, they actually quite enjoy it when children play with their body parts. Each body part is like a different toy, and they all have secret gags (e.g. if you pull on one of its buttons, its hands will glow purple). While the actual body is quite light (about 10 lbs.), the shoe that is on their leg is a very large damper. The shoe’s weight makes up almost of their total weight. Some scientists believe that this pokemon holds the secret to gravity (next part sounds hilarious) inside of its shoe. No one knows how they move from place to place because they’ll never move their foot when an adult is watching. They’re quite commonly caught by mothers or farmers because they understand human language, love doing household chores with their psychic powers, entertain children, and repel MURKROW as well as other crop eating pokemon. It looks as if its body is made out of cloth, gloves, tube socks, sheets, coiled up springs of rubber, polyester filling, yarn, a wood pole, and a shoe. Because the materials are picked at random upon evolution, it is quite rare to find two of them with the exact same cloth texture. Some people think that the type of material in them is determined by any of these factors: happiness, EV’s, condition, or the level that it evolved at. However, most just believe that it’s random.

I'd love to see a Dunsparce evo, or a Ariados evo

I would also like to see a pre-evo of Tauros, along with the evo of Milotic or Gyarados. |D

That's alright, Pokemole.

All of them are good suggestions. I was thinking a branching pre-evo for Miltank and Tauros.

This can be unstickied now, as well as the poll.
