  1. THEME/TOPIC: "Sky High Soaring" make an original/non-derivative FLYING character, that must be airborne or in flight. (Non-Derivative means... No published characters or fan characters, like Laguz, Pokemon, or Power Rangers, etc... however tropes like Mechs, Griffons, Pegasi, Dragons are all fair game as long as the character is original to you) Examples... Prehistoric, Mythological, Steampunk, Mechanical, Biological, Alien, Mounted, etc is up to the artist's discretion Our example Entry: (does not have to match format) -Dragon and Rider for example... Reminder: Do not make a Fire Emblem Wyvern. REMINDER: entry must be an original character in flight, NOT be a character from Fire Emblem, or any other series, or published work. ------ Rules of the competition for your reference. [spoiler=Rules]RULES: 1) only 1 entry per contestant, either in the Full Custom division or in the Splice/Edit division.(Animated may be a division if enough entries are in to justify it) -Please declare which division you fall under to avoid potential confusion. 2) No voting for your own entry! 3) Entries should be limited to 16 colors.(15 colors+ 1 background color) This is more of a guideline, but good to follow for style and challenge reasons. Colors may be custom or using GBA sprite palletes. 4) No posting previous/old works! This means no edits/recolors of something previously made as well. -allowing previous/old works would give an unfair advantage to certain entries, two weeks is a good amount of time to work on an entry... how fair would it be to have to go up against something someone spent months or even a year on? -creating brand new works, encourages creativity and artistic growth and development, kinda what the whole art forums are about... isn't it? [spoiler=Voting and Winners] Depending on Entry types and total number we will either go with split divisions for typically Full Custom and Splice/Edit entries, or single division. (Over 20 entries, or sizable enough division for both entry types will result in Split Division voting) ---- [spoiler=(IF SINGLE DIVISION)] VOTING: Voting will be split into two categories, -Best Overall Sprite (Single Vote) -Pick the ones you like (Multiple votes) >Voting will run for 3 days >Highest combined Votes=Best Overall Sprite WINNERS: Winner of Best Overall Sprite will come from combination of single vote and popular choice votes. > Winner of the Best Overall Sprite gets to choose the next theme/topic of the following contest. Runners-up will be the two contestants with the next highest votes following the winner. > Winners and Runners-up must provide their choices within 3 days of the host's private messaging. Host will provide the next theme/topic if no reply in 3 days. [spoiler=(IF SPLIT DIVISIONS)] VOTING: Voting will be split into three categories, -Best Full Custom (single vote) -Best Edit/Splice (single vote) -Pick the ones you like (Multiple votes) >Voting will run for 3 days >Sprites will be categorized following the voting >Highest combined Votes=Best Overall Sprite >Highest vote Full custom=Best Custom Sprite >Highest vote Splice/Edit=Best Edited Sprite WINNERS: Winner of Best Overall Sprite may also be the winner of Best Full Custom, or Best Splice/Edit category. > Winner of the Best Overall Sprite gets to choose the next theme/topic of the following contest.

Hope you all enjoy and have some fun! Lets get spriting! :D ---- PS: On in thread disputes, from the pinned Spriting and Competition thread. ---- PPS: ...wanting to sprite but don't know where to start, or just want some advice on how to improve? Check out the Spriters Resource thread and/or check some of these out. [spoiler=Helpful Tutorials] Here's a good tutorial on use of colors in pixel art and spriting... and some others that may be a bit more advanced... but good reads anyways... Thinking in Color -Excellent easy to understand tutorial on how colors effect your pixel art/sprite. Definitely worth the read! Derek-Make Games: 10 step custom sprite tutorial -great quick, easy tutorial on custom pixel art/sprites. So you Wanna be a Pixel Artist? 11 part series. -A bit wordy, but very well done in-depth look at the world of pixel art in general, from map tiles to sprites to animations. BwdYeti's tutorials are very recommended reads as well. Please share if you know of any other excellent tutorials! :D ...so here are the links to BwdYeti's custom battle sprite tutorials... Shared with his permission. I found his second tutorial, along with the Thinking in Color very fascinating on palletes... Hoping to apply those to my next couple sprites now that I understand it a bit better. BwdYeti's Custom Battle Sprite Tutorial #1 -kinda old, from before 2009... But a great look at the process of creating custom battle sprites from the Best Battle Spriter around... Then and now. Yeti's custom tutorial #2 -his second tutorial, even better than the first! Great tips on creating a custom pallete that fits with GBA battle sprite colors. A must read for anyone doing battle sprites! --- Anyways, hope these help! Good luck, and good spriting! ;)
