Default Cogito Ergo Sum (Sprite the Summary)

Approved by D.2

The title actually means "I think, therefore I am" in...Latin, I think. A saying by Voltaire that has nothing to do with this contest, but it looks pretty cool.

Okay, in this contest you are given a short paragraph. It describes a fakemon, and you are going to try to scratch it. (you may also make a fusion that represents is, but try to make it highly edited) Here's the paragraph:


"This flaming monster wreaks havoc in island villages. It's monstrous tail has a sharp end like a spear, and arrows form a deadly necklace around it's throat. Heavy wings lift it's tiger-like body from the ground, and fire expels from it's nostrils at every angry glare."


You may add details to the fakemon, but these characteristics must be there.

Details and Rules

-Due by January 7th

-One entry per person.

-PM me to be a judge, two spots are available.

-Winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) will be determined by the judges and a voting poll.

Great Idea Azumao ^^, but I'm not a great scratcher at all XD. And It would need to be a great fusion to beat scratches, so I will just pop in time to time and observe the sprites XD

Lol, you don't have until June to enter. That's American format for dates, it's month/day/year. You have until January 6th to enter. xD

And I knew that not everybody can scratch, and that's why I added the part about being able to fuse Pokemon parts together to make your entry. :)

I figured that was why, lol.
I'm working on mine right now!
I decided to try and attempt to make a bird with tiger legs but that was a COMPLETE disaster.

So now I'm trying something a little different. :D
I'll have it up when I'm done.
I have to say congrats, this is the hardest contet so far.

Edit

This is my entry:



I've named her Panfla. Pan as-in Panther, and Fla as in flames. I spent atleast an hour and a half on that little beastie. :P
It also includes all of the requirements, but I think it is probably the opposite of what was expected, lol. I'm happy with how it turned out.

A Description:

Panfla lives in the tropical regions of the planet. It lives deep in the unexplored tropical rainforests and mountains of Johto.
Somewhere on it's body is constantly burning, because by burning, Panfla can respire. It also has the ability to heal it's burns quickly.
It torments the tribes that lives on small islands by purposefully burning holes in mud huts.

It's missing the spear on the end of the tail, but I'm not mean enough to make you go back and do that. Lol. I'll just be easy about including everything, especially since that rocks. No points off or anything, lol. :]

Lol, thanks. It was speared, but then I put the flames on the end, and it kinda changed the tip.
It was hard to fit everything in. At first, my attempt was literally a tiger with wings, .
It's not my best position, but I lost patience after the first hour. I need to work on my positions more, and give them more depth... =D

Lol, okay. If I was in this contest, I'd get frustrated with it too. Almost as hard as making overworld sprites look passionate. :P

I extended the deadline to tommorrow. If nobody else enters, Callum can be the glorious and undisputed winner. :D

Can I still enter??

Intigaferno



I dunno. It stinks, But whatever. I callit Intigeferno(In-Tie-Ga-Fer-No). A looong name that is fairly obvious(:P). Intigeferno Lives in the volcanic reigons of Hoenn, paralyzing it's prey with It's threatining glare and then going in for the attack. They will attack small children and is very dangerous. They are known to attack villages. They live in large gangs, or packs.

Yay! Someone else entered! Lol. I think I might have made this contest a bit too hard...Ah, well. Whatever. I'll add your entry to the first post, and I'll do the judging either tomorrow or Monday. I'll post the poll tomorrow. :)
