The Traitor and the Betrayed

Description:
In PMD2, Dusknoir was plaiying as a good Pokemon around Wigglytuff's Guild, going as far as aiding them in helping a few Pokemon that they needed to find items for. When he captures Grovyle and is about to go back to the furture he drags the hero and partner Pokemon into the time portal. They wake up in a dungeon in the paralyzed furture in a dungeon (like a cell). They find out that Dusknoir did not want the Time Gears to be placed in the Temporal Tower because it would prevent the world's furture paralysis. He, therefore, is a traitor, that Dusknoir.

Title: Into the Darkness

Description: [ Skip past this if you don't want to read the whole thing... I wrote this specifically for explaining this image! D: ]

So here we are, running from the darkness of the paralyzed world. Clouds of dust refuse to settle; debris floats in the air as if gravity does not exist. Time has frozen here, and the nightmares have not ceased since the day we were dragged out of the present and into this dark future.

In front of me, an old friend lost in my forgotten memories glances quickly over his shoulder. Behind me, a new friend from my new beginning. He's a young and reckless Mudkip... but he's also strong and courageous.

Me? I'm a human turned Pokémon. My past is in the future, my future is in the past. I traveled through time with my old friend Grovyle to rid the world of this horrid darkness, and, through a series of events, ended up back here in the future.

The ominous chanting of a gang of Sableye started growing louder. An occasional roar would sound, one filled with pain and sadness. The ruins of Temporal Tower crumbled far in the distance behind us. "Keep going," said Grovyle, "Or else we'll be caught and killed."

We ran for what seemed to be forever. We escaped through dark chasms and labyrinthine caves, past dead forests and frozen streams. One sentence changed this all... if only for a moment...

"I'm tired of running...!"

Mudkip turned around and summmoned a great wave of water in the direction of the now-near Sableye. Some were knocked back, but they caught up to us quickly. In the corner of my eye, I saw Grovyle smirking, holding a smoke orb. "Alright, let's fight this time!"

And as we prepare ourselves for battle, I remember the name of the one who remained at Temporal Tower, who betrayed us and brought us here to be slain...

... Dusknoir.

[ tl;dr - Dusknoir betrayed the main character and his/her partner in PMD2 by acting like an ally at first but then sending them to the dark future to be executed... and Vanessa used the same idea as me. :( ]

Title: Avenger or Betrayer...?

Description: SASUKE UCHIHA! The name says it all! And I had this idea before Adam did Itachi. >_>

Ever since Sasuke's brother Itachi murdered his whole clan - with the exception of him - he's been training hard and growing strong, once wanting to follow in his brother's footsteps.

Now he is an avenger. The last of his clan. Only he can avenge his family now, and hope to bring Itachi down.

In doing so, Sasuke needed more power, and training with the Hidden Leaf villiage wasn't enough. So betraying his team, he went off in search of Orochimaru.

With great power comes great darkness, and it swallowed him whole. Sasuke is now a demon and a traitor. Will he stay an avenger...or take the dark road leading only to ruin?

Arate's away, I think. I'll be ending this now, and I'll be judging it. Next theme comes up whenever I think it does. Give me a while to review what I'm supposed to do. @_@

EDIT: Judging comes up ASAP, hopefully in an hour or so. For now, the new theme is... Mudkips.

EDIT2: I'm panicking here because it's midnight and I'm getting on a plane tomorrow. :| So, instead of writing beautiful comments...

Best looking goes to Daughter of Mew because there was something I didn't like about every other one, though I had to nitpick for some. DoM's still had stuff I didn't like, but it was more minor stuff. :P Yes, I'm harsh. Honorable mentions are joangaes and Tombi - it came down to those three and it was hard to decide, though in the end I picked DoM's because it seemed the most "chaotic" to me. Joangaes seemed more pure evil than chaotic and Tombi's was about a superhero. I don't find superheros that chaotic, no matter what their methods are. :x

Most creative art style goes to gun6. Didn't look extremely good imo (not that I could do better), but he thought outside the box and that's what earns him a point. Honorable mention is Limelight.

One point to KOTRT and one point to Aqua. Send me a PM if I'm wrong.

I'm not trying to make myself look any better, but having a work of art that is "original" would also take style into account...

Also, remember that just giving grades like that makes it easier to accuse you of something. How do I know that you choose Adam's banner because you were biased, or you didn't choose mine because I'm a jerk?

And Lunar Latias's entry is not a banner.

Also, remember that just giving grades like that makes it easier to accuse you of something. How do I know that you choose Adam's banner because you were biased, or you didn't choose mine because I'm a jerk?

And Lunar Latias's entry is not a banner.

I gotta agree with Hosh on this one. Wouldn't an original piece take a lot more time and creativity than a banner? I know I spent ages on mine. -_-;

And yes, thank you, my entry is not a banner!

I totally agree. ( In the nicest way Arate x3) But what good is it now? The war is over. ad Giving out poinst and then the winners have lower points? It just doest make sense. Gemma's Graphic doesnt have to be a banner though, thats why it is call WarVII GRAPHIC Arts xD.

Wait, You said that Adam was Too, late" So you will only give him a grade. But he won and his entry was late???

I thought that rule was still being followed. o..o;;

Gonana step into the fray for a second here. I know its frustrating when you spend a long time on something and you don't win. Happened to me in week two, but what you have to do is take the loss and move on.

One could assume that it would take more creativity, but that isn't always true.

Finally, one the biased note: Because she is on a WAR team doesn't make it right to accuse Arate of being biased. Let's go back to week two AND one: If she was biased, she would've given my tags a better score, or something of the like. She didn't. Therefor, she is not biased.

Seriously, just chill. No need to flip out when you don't win. :rolleyes:

Well, she's clearly breaking her own rule. How do you expect us not to rant. Believe me, there's not only 2-3 people who think that she's biased - and if she isn't, how could a 8/10 graded entry beat a 9/10 graded entry? That just doesn't make sense.

Well I think we ALL should have a deep breathe calm down and talk this calmly because if not this will be a disaster.

I know but we can solve things talking instead of flaming Arate, even though you guys have reason.

Okay now lets say that I did enter too late, the point goes to Joangaes anyway so does it really matter?

You cant just decide who the point goes too? You are not a judge!

I thought that the grade counted to say how "good" the work was, but one work could get a lower grade but still be more creative. What I thought would happen is that the graphic with the highest grade gets one point, and the most creative (not the best compositionally) would win a point. Still, that wouldn't make sense, since that would be like saying the idea only counts...

And it does matter who the point goes to. Just because you're on the same team doesn't mean it's okay. To be honest, when Lunar Latias won the first round over my entry, I wanted to outdo her the next round, so I ended up putting a lot more effort into my entry for the second round. :P

I might end up rambling, so if this doesn't make sense at all, disregard it.

As an aspiring artist, I was also looking forward to the comments and criticism Arate would give me so I could improve. I was disappointed about the lack of c+cc for the second round (and I hope you can still manage to get that up if you have time, Arate). U-B-3-R did the judging for the third round, so I can't really say anything for that, but the comments for the fourth round entries looked like they were done in a real rush.

... I just forgot the point of that last paragraph. I'm sure it had to do with the judge's effort or something. :\

I think we need to talk to Arate to sort things out.

But still, the point should not have been given to Adam if his entry was late and Arate said she would not give it to late entries, therefore disregarding her own rule entirely as a judge.

Agreeing with Hosh again, I would've thought one point to be given to the highest marking entry, because say if an entry only receives a mark of three, then it could still win if it happens to be a good style. I, however, don't see much in letting an entry with a really low score win just because of how it was done. Everything should be taken into consideration, correct?

And yeah, Hosh, you were my biggest rival. xD Good that we're on the same team then, eh? And because of that, I spent ages speedpainting my Mudkip. x__x

I do intend to take a Graphic Design course next year, so I'm familiar with what is needed to be a good artist. Comments I think, should be given for people to see how they can improve, as Hosh said, and in design, we take into account every bit of detail, not just the style or how good it looks.

Sorry for going overboard here. ^^;

Doesn't look like Arate's around to settle this bull, so I'll do it. :|

Adam was late, so his doesn't count, sorry pal. Following Arate's Grades, joangaes and LL got 9/10 - the highest score. I like LL's more, so she gets the point, mmk?

Also, it doesn't have to be a banner - what LL did is still a graphic art.

This issue is resolved.

Yeah, I think Hoshika knew that it didn't have to be a banner. She just pointed out Arate's mistake in her judging, where she said that LL's entry was a banner.
