Man, I've had enough of these noob spriting contests. This is the contest for those of us who have skills in spriting and not some noob who recolors with colors that hurt our eyes.
------
Test your skills and earn the title of "The True Spriter" of PE2K.
------
Welcome to The True Spriters' Challenge. The rules are simple:

Tournament format, with Qualifying Round, where anyone can enter; Quarter-Finals, where half will be eliminated; Semi-Finals, where another half will be eliminated; and finally, the Finals, where the best 2 will be held.

Each round, participants submit new sprite entries, or keep their old ones if they fell that those ones are the best. Participants will be judged by 3 judges, that can sign up here. I won't be judging since I plan on entering, and I want to make this fair.

Judges, you will judge the coloring of the sprite, the it-does/doesn't-hurt-my-eyes factor of the sprite; the originality of the sprite, the hey-i-saw-this-before factor of the sprite; and the overall of the sprite, the i-liked/disliked-the-sprite factor of the sprite.

After each round, the three judges will post their ratings and I will round it all up into an overall, and the best sprites/spriters will advance to the next round.

The judges are:
1. The Elite Ygseto
2. Neptune's Disciple
3. None (TMTS removed upon request)

For sprite entries, you will recolor a GBA version sprite however you so desire, make a trainer sprite, or do a fusion-thingy. Remember for the originality, if you submit first, it's original, but if you submit something like something that is already submitted, you lose points in your originality.

Quick Note for Judges: Base the points on a 0-to-100 scale!

To enter, submit:

Name:
Sprite:
Sprite Title:

Note: You are allowed to enter only 1 sprite per round!

YOU HAVE UNTIL JULY 10TH AT MIDNIGHT (PST) TO ENTER FOR THE QUATER FINALS!

Amen to that! Oh, and I love your use of the apostrophe in the thread's title. :cool: Yep....I'm a grammar freek....


Anywho, here's my entry (though I seriously considered being a judge...Next time!) I hope you don't ming the fact that it's a evolution series:

The apostrophe is there on purpose. Spriters plural, cause we all are true spriters... not noob spriters.

Sure, ND, you'd pwn us all, so you can judge! :oops:

Thanks. I used to do a lot of original spriting, for my RM2K/2 games and stuff, so I have quite a bit of pixel experience.

I actually think I may have lost my touch a bit. And compared to some of the spriter's here, I'm not as good as I once thought I was. Lol.

Sorry, back to the tournament topic... ;)

I'm afraid that this entry should be disqualifed. The sprite was actually made by Yami Zidane.

And _Alex_, it's your name... :dazed:

I'm going to judge the sprites as well... just not my own to make it fair, ok?

Don't worry, you have all day tomorrow to judge 'em! :oops:

Here's a sample of judging:

Name: Mark
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/sprites/cleffa1.bmp
Sprite Name: Mint Chocolate Cleffa

Coloring: 55/100
It hurts my eyes, try softer colors for Cleffa.

Originality: 85/100
I've never seen those colors together before. I like the name, very original!

Overall: 90/100
I like the sprite, it's cool and stuff... just try softer colors next time!

Lan, you entered the competition, that automatically makes you void from judging it.

If you judge (and that includes even if you don't judge your own), you will not be an unbiased judge, and use this to your advantage to win.

Have some fairness, and let the designated judges do their job. You consentrate on trying to win.

07-02-2005, 12:04 AM
Sorry Lan, but I'm going to have to go with Thanatos on this one. You did enter the competition, and said that you didn't want to judge as it would make it unfair for the other contestants. Sorry, but I'm going to have to put my foot down, and I think the other judges will agree with me. You did assign TMTS, Ygseto and myself to do the judging, so that you yourself could enter.

If you get to enter and judge, what about the other people that entered? Technically, if you can enter and still judge, they should be able to.

Just leave it up to the judges, I'm sure we'll be able to come to a decision.

I'm just going by what Lan said was 12 pm on the first his time. It is also the third of July my time, 10 to 1 in the morning actually. The judging will be up when its done. There will probably be a new thread with the results in. Once again, entries are closed, so there is no point to post in this thread anymore. Please, if you feel that you much post here, do NOT post 'Wow the entries are all so wonderful! I love yours *name*. I wanna know if I won... :sad:' Or something along those lines. That is called SPAM. Moderators, please feel free to lock this thread

EDIT: Gun6, your entry was not submitted before the closing date. Sorry, but it will not be judged

Ionem
07-03-2005, 04:28 AM
Wow, a perfect score!

You sure that's fair, though? I mean, it's an evolution. Wouldn't I at least get knocked a few points off originality?

Heh, but I won't complain. :D

Time to wait for the other judges.

Neptune's Disciple
07-03-2005, 06:37 AM
ND, that's his entry for the second round if he moves on...

Sorry, I didn't realise that it was for the next round.

My judging:

Entry #1:
Name: Lan
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/sprites/slugma1.bmp
Sprite Name: Midnight Slugma

Colour - 80/100
The colours used compliment each other, however, were simply taken from grimer, so this is not really surprising...

Originality - 30/100
It's a re-colour, not very original IMO.

Overall - 60/100
Once again, its just a re-colour. They aren't very hard to do. Although, the shading etc. is almost perfect, again because you used grimers colours.

Entry #2:
Name: Alex
Sprite: http://img173.echo.cx/img173/828/flannery5bq.png
Sprite Name: Flannery's New Look

Colour - 50/100
I know that you don't like putting dark backgrounds on you sprites, but that's what sprites are. And I'm not sure if the colours all mix... The eyes are too bright too IMO.

Originality - 30/100
Like I said to Lan, it's just a re-colour. Nothing original about it.

Overall - 50/100
I don't really like this sprite, but I don't dislike it either. With a bit more work, it could be a good sprite.

Entry #3:
Name: Captain Charisma
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v118/ShaneOMacv3/Other/Azumaril.bmp
Sprite Name: The Easter Bunny

Colour - 65/100
I like the colours used, but you didn't do a dark outline. See Alex's comment.

Originality - 30/100
Recolour

Overall - 65/100
The colours blend, and, even though it is only a recolour, it is done well.

Entry #4:
Name: Defence.2
Sprite: http://img296.echo.cx/img296/8296/golshrew2bz.gif
Sprite Name: Golshrew

Colour - 70/100
The colours all blend well, apart from the bit at the top of golem's body, where the 'light' hits it. They look too... odd. They look like to colours used on the GSC version sprites, which, lets face it, sucked.

Originality - 60/100
Yay, something other than a re-colour! Still not really that original though...

Overall - 70/100
It's simple, but you pulled it off well, apart from that gross colour on the shell. The body parts all fit, although the tail does look a little too high.

Entry #5:
Name: liquid crystal
Sprite: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y230/1421/evolution1.bmp
Sprite Title: Matls, Mirlia, Gardechamp

Colour - 90/100
Everything's good in the colour department, all shaded etc.

Originality - 65/100
Fusion. But atleast these are different type pokemon

Overall - 70/100
The Malts one is an almost perfect fusion. The Mirlia one, however, has a few errors. The head is too low and too far to the left, making it look, well, odd. Something looks up with its right leg too... But a good sprite none the less. Gardechamp has a similar problem with the head, but thats about it. Good sprites on the whole.

Entry #6:
Name: Daniella
Sprite: http://img37.echo.cx/img37/9128/cassidy8zc.png
Sprite Name: Cassidy

Colour - 80/100
Good colours, but I have to ask, why does she have white dots in ther hair? Her skin also looks a little dark.

Originality - 30/100
It's a revamp, do I need to say more?

Overall - 65/100
Its a good sprite on the whole, I like it, just a few minor errors

Entry #7:
Name: Louise
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v700/Inuyashafoolpersonthing/Sprites/Jumpluff-ImakecoloursmatchxD.png
Sprite Name: Gold Jumpluff

Colour - 60/100
I don't really like the colours used, but hey, at least they fit. The shading is well done.

Originality - 30/100
Recolour

Overall - 60/100
For a re-colour, it's good. But it is just a recolour

Entry #8:
Name: Kronos
Sprite: http://img130.echo.cx/img130/6346/skirby1ya.gif
Sprite Name: Skirby

Colour - 100/100
Perfect

Originality - 100/100
Mixing Skitty with Kirby, wonderful

Overall - 100/100
What can I say? I love this sprite. It's so cute and perfectly done. Well done Matthew!

Entry #9:
Name: Shadow
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v322/Thepokemonplayground/growvee.png
Sprite Name: Growvee

Colour - 80/100
Good colours, good shading

Originality - 65/100
Fusion

Overall - 40/100
I dunno, theres just something about this sprite that made me give it a lower mark....

Entry #10:
Name: Ionem
Sprite: http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y263/ionem/feratu.png
Sprite Name: Nosferatu

Colour - 95/100
Colours are great. Then again they should be because they were taken off Xatu

Originality - 100/100
A new evolution, and an awesome looking one that that, well done.

Overall - 95/100
It's a great sprite, theres no doubt about it. But there are a few things that I think are wrong with it. The only way I can show it to you is doing it on your sprite.

http://home.ripway.com/2005-1/243612/nosferatu.bmp

The 'thumbs' of Lugia's wings (red) - I think the sprite would have looked even better if you edited these off

The third eye (yellow) - I think this could have been a jewel or something, other than an eye, it would have suited the overall picture of the sprite better IMO.

Also, the head. At the bottom of the head where you took it off Xatu, there is a straight line. Most circular heads don't have straight lines at the bottom. It would have been better if you had perhaps rounded this off a little.

Entry #11:
Name: Ardella
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/sprites/ardella_charizard.bmp
Sprite Name: Blue Flame Charizard

Colour - 90/100
Although you kept the Charizard the same as its normal colour, which I think would have been better changed, the colour of the flame is excellent.

Originality - 90/100
Flame. I like flames, and you did the flames very well, especially as you did them from scratch.

Overall - 90/100
Great sprite, I like it a lot. Once again, those flames are amazing.

Entry #12:
Name: Andrew
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/LaN_scyther_66/Yami_Sprite.bmp
Sprite Name: Legendary Trainer

Colour - 70/100
Good colours. They blend well, and the shading is good

Originality - 50/100
It's ok

Overall - 60/100
I couldn't make a decision, so for once I averaged out the other marks.

Entry #13:
Name: Gun6
Sprite: http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b70/Gun6/recolorjiggly.bmp
Sprite Name: Lively Jigglypuff

Colour - 50/100
Alright, but you didn't do a dark outline.

Originality - 25/100
Its a re-colour, but you've only made the colours brighter, not even changed the colours completely.

Overall - 35/100
It bores me.

Entry #14:
Name: Psychic*Fire
Sprite: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a210/apple88888/pikamermaids.bmp
Sprite Name: Pika Mermaids

Colour - 60/100
Some of the shading is a little...off, like where the tails meet the bodies.

Originality - 65/100
Fusions

Overall - 40/100
The tails aren't very well molded to the bodies. If you look at the pichu one, the body goes straigh down, then suddenly curves to the right, you should have rounded them a bit more.

Entry #15:
Name: Yami_Zidane
Sprite: http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/Yami_Zidane/Enticuno.png
Sprite Name: Enticuno

Colour - 60/100
Good, but taken from Articuno

Originality - 60/100
Fusion

Overall - 60/100
The wings are out of place, they are too far forward and too low. The sprite also looks too busy. You should have stuck with Pupitor IMO.

Entry #16:
Name: Chaos
Sprite: http://ourworld.cs.com/SuperiorChaos/starterboy.gif
Sprite Name: Jack Drake

Colour - 50/100
Eh. The shading makes it look like the light is coming from all different areas, but only on that bit of the sprite.

Originality - 90/100
As far as I can tell, its been made from scratch. Please correct me if I'm wrong

Overall - 65/100
It's OK, not great, but not particularly bad either

Entry #17:
Name: _Alex_
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v314/T_dude/1eleventy.gif
Sprite Name: Manene

Colour - 80/100
Shading is well done, colours are good.

Originality - 100/100
Made from scratch, can't get more original than that

Overall - 95/100
Its good, and the only thing that really pulled it down was the square on its chest that it meant to be a circle. Well done, its good to see some original sprites in here.

Entry #18:
Name: Firestorm
Sprite: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/Kitkat509/Ninecuno.bmp
Sprite Name: Ninecuno

Colour - 60/100
You haven't changed them at all... But I guess that means they fit...

Originality - 55/100
Ninetales body, Articuno wings, and a Rapidash tail flame, its a fusion, what more can I say?

Overall - 60/100
The wings are perfectly positioned, but the flame pulls it down. You didn't add a 'border' at the bottom left of the flame, which it needs to look 'right'. Also the positioning of the flame to the mouth, there could do with being a gap, and maybe you should have used the Emerald sprite for it, then its mouth would be open.

Hmm... I'll enter this new one, seems original enough! I bet you've never seen this combination before!

Other: Counts as a fusion and a recolor! :razz: Isn't it original, making your own Pokémon?

Neptune's Disciple
07-04-2005, 01:56 AM
In the second round, as Lan and I have previously discussed, each entrant MUST enter two sprites to be elligable for judging. It would be prefered if these two sprites were not the same style (ie. not both fusions or mutations or recolours etc.). Sorry to the people that have already entered

Matt
07-04-2005, 01:59 AM
Oy, so we're beig judged on both...okay, I'll make another, though I doubt it'll be as good.

Neptune's Disciple
07-04-2005, 02:08 AM
Yes, you're getting judged on both, and neither can be of the same style. This is so that we can see that you can do more than just recolour etc. The overall marks for both will be averaged, to give you a score for this round. The top 5 from this round will progress onto the semi-finals

I'll post my second entry when I finish it. Probably another new pokémon, to be different from the trainer.

How do ya make these sprites?.

Matt
07-04-2005, 01:10 PM
On a drawing program. You erase and draw and color, etc., until you make someting you like. To make a fusion, you use different pokemon and mix their parts together, etc.

But what with?. How?.

Matt
07-04-2005, 01:23 PM
Do you have any drawing Program? Photoshop, PaintshopPro, MSPaint, Appleworks, Clarisworks, anything? Once you do, copy and paste sprites, such as the ones in your sig, and use the eraser tool to erase parts, and pencil tool to draw more parts on. This (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5793&page=1) may help.

1 sprite everyone, only one. It's easier, better and proves you have more skill. :dazed:

Neptune's Disciple

LAN! How does only doing one sprite prove that you have more skill? If someone can only re-colour, they obviously don't have as much skill as someone who can do more than that, but if you only have to submit one sprite, then we won't be able to tell as easily. It's the best way to get a fair competition, and if you can't work out the averages for two sprites, then stop having a hissy-fit and let someone who can do it. You handed over the authority to change the rules to the judges, and unfortunately for you, I am a judge. Im sure that the other judges will agree with me that this is the best and easiest way for everyone to have a fair competition.

.AzureLight
07-06-2005, 04:47 PM
Let's see... I have a better chance at moving on with 15 sprites than I do 1, why? Because of the average factor.

And I made that decsion on AIM at the middle of night because you persuaded me.

This is my idea, my competition, therefore I am the final ruling. You don't like it, go make your own competition.

Sky Girl
07-06-2005, 05:35 PM
Lan! you're being silly. ND's right, you gave the judges authority and the judges (as well as everyone else) are saying two sprites. so suck it up and quit complaining. (though it is funny to read all of your hissy fits :cool: )

.AzureLight
07-06-2005, 06:03 PM
ND, next time, participate, don't judge.

On another note, December's competition won't be so corrupted.

.AzureLight
07-06-2005, 06:10 PM
Ok, enough of this F***ing argueing unless we all want to be banned.

It's my competition, I make the rules and I can go back on my decsions if I want and there's nothing you can do to stop me.

1 sprite per round as stated from the beginning, end of disscussion.

Got a problem? Make your own damn competition.

Yay! Fighting. :)

I've gotta say I agree with both Lan and Neptune's Disciple, here. I agree that there should be one sprite per round, because otherwise it seems wierd...

But I also agree that there should be a variety of types of sprites, like ND said. Perhaps, maybe the next round should be a different style than your previous two entries?

Anyway, I'll stick with the trainer I made for this round.

Ardella

:question: So what counts as two sprites and what counts as one? Say, if you entered two different versions of the same sprite, would that count as one entry or two?

Neptune's Disciple
07-07-2005, 07:03 AM
Ok then, being as Lan won't follow through on what he said. And I didn't persuade you to agree, I asked you if you thought it was a good idea and you said yes. But whatever

Sorry about all of the arguments and confusion guys. One sprite, and hey, while you're at it, why not make it the exact same style again so we can't tell how good you actually are... :susp:

It would count as one sprite, since it's the same sprite.

TMTS
07-18-2005, 03:49 PM
Ok, seeing Ardella's sprite, it takes first, and everyone else's moves down one place.

D.2- it's a very good sprite, but blue didn't seem to fit the general "evil" theme. I'm not saying the fork necessarily "should have" or "would look better" red or w/e, but I was thinking maybe if the entire sprite wasn't blue, but rather a more "dark" or "evil" color, it might have looked nicer.

Maybe a brown fork. I dunno.

I think I was probably a little harsh on a couple, and a little too nice on some, but over all, I was a little disappointed by the quality of the sprites from spriters that I know can do so much better. That of course doesn't go for Ardella, I really liked her sprite, I thought Ionem's wasn't up to his standard, and Matthew's could have been a little better. I was probably too harsh on those three, as I expected better from Ionem and Matthew, but when compared to the other sprites that were entered, they should have recieved full marks. However, that being said I will not change any of the marks I gave. D2's and Lan's sprites were fine, but the other entrants were, lets face it, crap.

Let round 3 begin!

The 5 people who passed are as follows;
- Ardella
- Kronos
- Ionem
- Defence.2
- Pokemaster Lan

Sorry to the other guys who didn't get through.

Here is my entry FOR THE TIME BEING

I might change it... but this is it for now. 100 % scratch (With reference of course)

I might go back and either make a trainer sprite of her with a custom pose, or make a monster sprite of her little friend. But who knows :rolleyes: I am notorious for saying stuff and not doing them... I suffer from lazyitis... so sue me :cool:

Sprite Name: American Ho-oh

Colours - 40/100
Eh

American Ho-oH....what did you want Christmas colors!

Originality - 40/100
Lets face it, there have been a lot of these kind of sprites going around lately. And this certainly isn't the best by any stretch of the imagination.

Actully if people would have judged ON TIME back in the first week of July....it would have went with the 4th of July thing. The only reason there were so many going around was because I was the first person to make it like that. NP or Lan made it into a bald Ho-oH

Overall - 30/100
I just plain don't like it. It bores me, theres nothing really interesting about it. Sorry

I have nothing to say about this...lol.
