"Gotta Sprite 'em All" Banner Contest
approved by matt/d.2

A B O U T
This contest is to decide the banner for PE2K's sprite tutorial website. This banner will be featured at the top of the site, and will represent it in a visual manner.

PE2K Spriting Project (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40858)

G U I D E L I N E S
Your entry must be in some way relevant to sprites or pixel art. The banner must be at least 700 pixels in width, but no more than 850. It should be at least 80 pixels high, but no more than 250.This is due to it's usage as a header banner, so it needs to be the width of the layout. Also, it must include the text "Gotta Sprite 'em All" somewhere on the banner, again due to it being the header for the website.

D U E D A T E
All entries must be due by Saturday, June 16th. I will post the poll on Monday morning/afternoon, which is what will determine the winner of the contest. As long as your entry is posted before I make the official "Contest Closed" post (which will be before I post the poll) I will more than likely be lenient and accept it.

I will submit. It might be a little tricky, getting it in by Friday, but I will do my best. I hate Sprite themed banners. I think I can pull some things out of my sleeve. :oops:

Edit: Are you allowed to submit more than one entry?

No more than two, and I'll change the due date since people are complaining.

W00t! I've gotten finished with my banner, and I added a little sub-text to go along with it.
Link, because image took up too much space. (http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/697/gseapj8.png)
I like how it turned out, oh, and I snuck a special sprite in there for you Azu. *HintHint*

I would enter, but I think Anorexic Snorlax' pretty much takes the cake. Ghastlygoo's is good too, but I like AS' text...y'know the whole "Easy to follow tutorials...blahblahblah"

Don't decide not to enter because of one entry...(even if it has Whiscash, lol.)

Smooooth background. I quite like it, but I agree that you should probably put another entry in case this one is thought of as "Too Plain".

Nice...but what's with the Kingler? Is he like half shiny or something?

And PP, yeah, Paint is tough to use for banners and digital art, but good for spriting at least! ^_^

It fits in with the Pokemon, "Gotta catch sprite 'em all" thing.

Haha, yeah. A regular Kingler looked too... normal. xD

and it kinda shows how you can recolour something I suppose..

Oh, I forgot to ask. Will we be given credit?

Any chance we could make the deadline next Saturday? I have like 5 sprites I wanted to put into mine, and I have to make them all...

Erm...well, since I had complaints about it being early anyway, I'll go ahead and change it. That's as late as I'll go, though, lol.

I used three sprites by people in there, all from tutorials. I probably shouldn't have just looked around and picked up some, but I had a plan in mind- a scratch sprite, a fusion, and then something else. Yours was the fusion. I can't remember where I got the Chao from, but thanks for letting me use it! :) Ehehe...

I think those of you who have Photoshop have better chances of winning than me, but for all it's worth, here is mine:

I got around to using other people's sprites, too:

I don't think it's uploading.

I'll edit this post tom. I got it finished but it's not uploading for like an hour now.

Just a sec.

Click.

That should help. You can't display files from your computer like that; the board makes you host them.
