Week II
Pre-judge Note:
Hi again, peasants! I mean.. people! So this week there was a bit of confusion. I didn't think i'd need to go into extreme detail about what I wanted, but I guess it came off differently to some than to others. While this is perfectly fine, I'm picky, and I know what I want. If you're not about to meet those standards, don't expect a lot of points. Here's what I wanted, and excuse my previous harshness, but at least I'm honest. Anyways, what I wanted was a bit more originality, creativity, Last week, I didn't really care, because it was like, Week I, but in the next 3 weeks, you'll understand me a little better. This is Week II, pick it up, you know? Up the ante just a little bit. Anyways, looking past all the confusion, some really good sprites have emerged, so scroll down to see your results (as well as other peoples' results that you might not care about)!

Congratulations, you colored a Kirby purple, and gave it a tattoo. Doesn't really look much like Koffing, though. I can't quite give ya points for relevance because of that. If you had added some bumps and an "8D" sort of face, maybe scratched a bit of clouds, it would have been something amazing. The lines on that particular sprite are confusing, and they seem a bit off to me, not really your doing, but I can't say it deserves a good grade because of it. Props for the cuteness, though, like a little vampire Kirby. I'm betting right now, Velocity is kinda happy he didn't go with the Kirby sprite. Better luck, next time, though.

Very plain, again. You aren't taking any chances are ya? I mean, yeah, it's a Whiscash, it looks like a Whiscash, but it's just a recolor with a W on his forehead. It would have scored you near perfect points, last week. I understand you were pressed for time, but you still could have done more. Maybe the patterns on the fin, or removed some of the whiskers. I mean, I like it, but it's not as much as I'd hoped it'd be.

Just a few things, like, the wings, there's a thicker black line on the wings of the original sprite, you could have done something about that, and it's all very blocky. I understand that you were also pressed for time, but it doesn't take a whole lot of time for some minor tweaking. Some of the lines were a little squared off, whouch should never be the case, and the face is a bit smooshed, where the beak is an obvious feature, as well as the eyes.

SNOR-HULK SMASH! Man, I love this thing. It's not the best sprite, by any means, but it's hilarious, and totally original. I'll drop the "fail" off of the "Epic Fail" remark you made in your post, sir. Because this is truly epic.

My only real two issues with this is the lines around the tail area are too black, which differs from the rest of the sprite, and the face lacks shading all together. Other than that this is a reall good edit, and I like it a lot. Very original, very nice. Kudos.

What were you thinking with those black lines around the legs, and head? Those eyes don't look like spinarak's eyes at all. I approve of the patterns on the backside and it's very cartoony, and appealing. Kinda dropped the ball this time, but hey, work on those lines, that's TOO MUCH black line.

You didn't get last place, this time. But you still need a lot of work. Neatness, let me tell you why this was low, Neatness is affected by everything else, and on top of that, you know those little back dots, and the kinda stray line by the rear leg, I don't care if it was on the original sprite, you could have removed them, and it would have looked better. Also, youre still using solid black lines where they aren't needed, Granted, Zoroark is a black Pokemon, so it's slightly forgivable, but there's just some areas where it didn't need completely black lines. keep working on this, because Week IV is gonna be one stupid hard test for you.

Your entire outline is black. But I suppose that's the style. Do I hate that? No. Do I dislike it? Yes. But there's not much I can say about it that hasn't already drained me severely, today. The rest of it is fantastic. I love the expression, it's adorable, the shading is acceptable, it's clean, and it looks like a Vaporeon. It could have done without the stripes, but still, a really good job on that. For anyone looking through the sprites to see if this was copy and pasted at all, and it surprisingly wasn't. So That's why this got a good score, to be honest.

Welcome to 20+ hours in MS Paint. That recoloring must have taken forever. It also looks like a Charizard. So, besides the lines and the awkward jaw placement, it's a really well done sprite. I enjoy the colors, too. Good job.

Dang... Adorable... Didn't even use the Charizard color pallet. I'm impressed. The only thing I don't like are the dodgy lines at the base of the tale between the legs. This makes me happy. I think it's just because it's Spyro.

Once more, congratulations to the winners! My biggest beef is these lines. You're ignoring lighting factors when you put solid black lines. They only need to be in places that face away from lighting. Even then one should try to shade them darker without it being totally black. Keep up the work! I'll see you for Week III!
