adaptions - the type changing contest
Before you ask, yes, this is approved by Mayo.

]about://[
If you for some reason can't read the title, this contest, clearly, revolves soly around type changes. Each week, for some weeks until this dies like any other contest, I will specify an area from the Pokemon world.

It could be Mt. Pyre, the Frosty Forest, or even a simple city. You will be informed the type you must change, and perhaps a rough outline of what I'm looking for(for example, for Frosty Forest I may say "make the Pokemon look warm, but not firey. Think Piloswine."). Simple, eh? Anyone can enter, so long as you aren't banned from this contest.

]rules://[
Any contest has them. You should know the basics. If you don't, you're silly. :[
1.No. Stealing. Stealing will not be accepted in any shape, form, or matter.
2.Follow the guidelines. If I say make a steel type change, don't make a rock type change!
3.I don't tolerate gloating, taunting, put downs, or anything of that sort. Make sure all of your comments are positive to everyone, not just you.
4.You must not follow this rule.

]this weeks objective://[
This week, Pokemon must adapt to... Petalburg Forest!
An always-dark forest that is bursting with Wurmple. The habitat causes certain genes to mutate and become bug-like.
You may change any Pokmon to - the Bug type! Don't just color a mon green, stick on wings and/or antenna and call it good or I'll bite your head off. Understood?
Ends on October 3rd.

Etc.

Example:
Y halo ther!!1!
-in other words, not here at the moment-

Entrys will stop being accepted at fifteen. If many more people wish to enter, then 20.

]grading formula://[
Here's the grading formula. :D
Colors:If you color choice is good, so will your grade. A gray rock type change will get more points then a green one.
Shading:DId you shade well? Did added parts stay consistant? If your shading looks official, you'll be fine. Reshading correctly will also be good for your score.
Skill:How much skill was put into your type change? A fire type change with scratched flames and custom colors will be better then one with colors and flames from Charizard, even if the quality isn't quite as good.
Originality:I don't want the same thing over, and over again. Spruce things up! Use parts one would never think of using. Spoons for a psychic type change, scales for a water type. The possibilites are endless.
Pokemon choice:THis also affects your grade. A Camerupt that is changed to Flying and is given Togetic wings and a Pidgey tail won't look very good.
Other:Anything else, wether it be porportion, other comments, or an uneven pattern.
Overall:You're overall score out of 60. How good your sprite is.
Sprite levels:
6- | You suck.
7-14 | Horrible.
15-21 | Bad.
22-28 | Below average.
29-35 | So-so.
36-42 | Average.
43-49 | Good
50-53 | Great
54+ | Amazing

]banned://[
None. Keep it that way. Or else.

]closing://[
Have fun! :3
I have no idea what else to put here.

Is that good? It's not a Dark Type, but It's adapted like real life cave animals. They lose all color and don't need eyes, so they dissappear after a while. I'll change if not.

As far as I know, My Idea, don't steal.

Well, this is a type change contest. THe idea is good, but it should have more of a dark hint(maybe dark grey instead of white?). Also, the form needs to be used.

And yes, you may.

I'll fix mine asap, can't get on my computer to sprite, just on laptop, and it's really hard on here. And if you made something like my entry, I'm sorry. I didn't take the idea from anyone, just by recoloring it.

Dark Type Abra and Dark type Mew. Choose whichever is better. Cause I suck at deciding. D:


This week, Pokemon must adapt to... The Wayward Cave!
This cave, inhabited by the rare Gible, is moist, dark, and very creepy. Because of the abundance of eddible mushrooms and lack of Pokemon, Pokemon from all over are inhabiting this cave.


Do you perhaps mean lack of light? o_O Because I don't think pokemon can inhabit the cave if there is a lack of them. :oops:

And, there was a lack of Pokemon except GIble(which is still rare there, last time I checked) before they started inhabiting the cave. [/badexcuse]

Judging will no be commenced. Hold tight!

1. Anala
http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/9223/darkpikachuog3.png
Colors:Well, it's just the typical black and red. Nothing special, but there's also nothing too wrong. 7/10
Shading:The red marks are far too lightly outlined compared to the black. This makes it seem neon against the black. Otherwise, it's fine. 7/10
Skill:Well, it's basicly a recolor with teeth. You could've done more. 6/10
Originality:I guess the red paws are nice, but fangs are way too cliche on a dark type. Meh. 6/10
Pokemon choice:Weeell... I honestly don't think Pikachu fits the theme, to be honest. I can't really picture an evil Pikachu after watching the anime so much. o__0 6/10
Other:None. 10/10
Overall:It's not as bad as I made it sound, honest. It just wasn't too amazing. 42/60 Average

2. Wandering Mew
http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l25/lindz398/re-elements/dark/abra.png
Colors:It's the regular scheme, but the colors looked good together. 8/10
Shading:The Pokemon itself is fine - despite using bright red, you outlined it dark enough to not hurt my eyes. But, the completely black outline isn't too good. Even black should be properly outlined. 8/10
Skill:You didn't add much, but all the same I can see you put effort into the ears. 7/10
Originality:Hmm. The long ears disturb me, rather than fascinate me. o__0 7/10
Pokemon choice:Abra is fine for the challenge. 9/10
Other:The ears are creepy. :< 8/10
Overall:Nice, but there were some things here and there. 47/60 Good

3. DratiniLover
http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p25/DarkRoseGothic/Re-Elements/pWnA.png
Colors:The usual, but you didn't really have many other choices so I can't blame you. 8/10
Shading:The blood doesn't look like blood. It looks more like slime. Liquids are hard to work with, I know. Other then that, nicely done. 8/10
Skill:I can see you put great effort into making the blood. Very nice indeed. 8/10
Originality:I like the blood. It's very unique, and you used it differently then I so you couldn't be blamed for plagirizm. 8/10
Pokemon choice:Golbat is already kinda evil, but that only adds to this. 8/10
Other:None. 10/10
Overall:Overall, a brilliant sprite. 50/60 Great

4. BulletAngel
http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc290/deadlydisturbia123/Darknidorino.png
Colors:I like the white. It's unique, yet still matches the theme nicely. 9/10
Shading:A shame the lovely reshading went to waste because of the black outline. Sorry, but the black is really bad. 7/10
Skill:It obviously took a lot to reshade that so nicely. =) 9/10
Originality:Basic, but the white mohawk really stands out. Nice. 8/10
Pokemon choice:Nidorino is believable. 9/10
Other:The read hurts my eyes. Eh. 8/10
Overall:I'm speechless at the beauty, yet, the black outline is ugly. 50/60 Great

5. Djax
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t215/djax94/DarkParasforPikabluscompetition.png
Colors:I don't know. Lavender isn't really that menacing, you see. xD 7/10
Shading:It's no different from the original, so meh. 7/10
Skill:You just recolored it... 5/10
Originality:I guess the lavender was neat, but otherwise it was very plain. 6/10
Pokemon choice:Paras is good, but if you read the challenge more closely you'll see this Paras in canibalistic. =P 7/10
Other:Nothing. 10/10
Overall:A good recolor, yes. Type change, not so much. Don't be discouraged, though! 42/60 Average

6. Duo
http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x127/CooltrainerDuo/CaveEkans-1.png
Colors:I certainly wasn't expecting white, and you used it cleverly. Far too light, however. 7/10
Shading:Far too light. 6/10
Skill:Well, I can't say much. 7/10
Originality:Defiantly something original. I like how you ade it a cave snake to put a spin on the challenge. 9/10
Pokemon choice:Ekans is fine. 7/10
Other:It kinda looks like paper... 7/10
Overall:Nice idea, but too light. 43/60 Good

http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l25/lindz398/re-elements/dark/abra.png
Colors:It's the regular scheme, but the colors looked good together. 8/10
Shading:The Pokemon itself is fine - despite using bright red, you outlined it dark enough to not hurt my eyes. But, the completely black outline isn't too good. Even black should be properly outlined. 8/10
Skill:You didn't add much, but all the same I can see you put effort into the ears. 7/10
Originality:Hmm. The long ears disturb me, rather than fascinate me. o__0 7/10
Pokemon choice:Abra is fine for the challenge. 9/10
Other:The ears are creepy. :< 8/10
Overall:Nice, but there were some things here and there. 47/60 Good

Ha, so the ears are creepy! :3 Yeah, I did this one a while ago so I would expect it to have some problems.

Hakken

Colors:Well, it's just the typical black and red. Nothing special, but there's also nothing too wrong. 7/10
Shading:The red marks are far too lightly outlined compared to the black. This makes it seem neon against the black. Otherwise, it's fine. 7/10
Skill:Well, it's basicly a recolor with teeth. You could've done more. 6/10
Originality:I guess the red paws are nice, but fangs are way too cliche on a dark type. Meh. 6/10
Pokemon choice:Weeell... I honestly don't think Pikachu fits the theme, to be honest. I can't really picture an evil Pikachu after watching the anime so much. o__0 6/10
Other:None. 10/10
Overall:It's not as bad as I made it sound, honest. It just wasn't too amazing. 42/60 Average


Heh, well, I got an avarage grade. Yay. Well, at least its not that bad... like a twenty or something. Then I'd be really upset with my self. D:

Nooooo! I knew not being able to shade would come back to haunt me. DX

But yeah, after looking it over again and again, I kinda agree with you. She wasn't suppose to be smiling though, it was suppose to be a smirk. XD Meh, but average is an okay score for me, considering it was the first sprite in a few weeks, and my first try with Delcatty. And it was fun. ^_^

Anyway, good job to everyone who entered. And I figured, after seeing the sprite Psychic posted, I wouldn't win. That's a really mean looking Victreebell. =P

Don't worry, type changes are like fusions but a bit more complex. If you need help, look at some tutorials at Gotta Sprite em All once it re-opens, and I've always got mine if you need it.

I'm going to have to reject that, because, really, it's just a Swablu head on an Ariados. Sorry
