THEME/TOPIC: "Creature Features" make an original character, either a non-human individual, or human with pet animal/monster. (Up to you how non-human/monstrous their appearance is.)

Examples... A boy and his dog, half-manakete original character like Sophia, Werewolf, Laguz, etc...
Our example Entry: (does not have to match format)

e1e7b2f78cccef07be2691b2d64fc45e.png
-A man with his... pet bird? REMINDER: must be original character.
------

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.
-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 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)
----
This round will be SINGLE DIVISION

> 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.

Man it's pretty hard to pick overall but I think Essa and her dragon are the best in my opinion. Their palettes match super nicely and the way they're situated together is really pleasant

Yeah... its really good, but then... so are a bunch of entries. :O

(Still trying to decide personally)

Hard choice for myself as well... on a side note, I added the descriptor text to help give the Original Characters more flavor, in most cases I just went with what people typed out themselves, unless they had no specific description, or it was too long. ;)

@ Ana

I did that last round of voting. XD

I figure, if you seriously do like all of them, why not vote for all of them? ...it is the ones YOU like after all. :p

Tough tough choice... was down to three for me, but Essa and her Dragon to me edged the competition due to its shading and colors... damn that shading on the scales and hairs... soooo nice! Other two contenders were Necromancer and Sir Hopsalot for me.

Honorable mentions of course to Shivella, Steve, and the Demi-Gods... There were a ton of great sprites after these guys in my mind too! Fantastic works from everyone involved! You ought to all be proud of your showdown works! :D

Seriously... great turnout in the end, great entries!

@deranger

Yeah, its been very exciting to see so much god damn awesome talent and creativity! ...totally did not expect such a great turn out when I suggested these initially. Kudos to everyone who has voted, commented or entered! :o

there should be a "select all" button

or select none since one does not simply choose one

going with phoenix because of the guy's pose.

also do not call me singu, just leave my name with ???

ODIN'S BALLS, that was the single toughest vote for a best overall ive ever experienced. All of them just SO GOOD.

I was caught between the Necromancer, Essa, and Steve. I went with Steve in the end because its pretty original and extremely clean. He barely beat Essa though. Cuz lets face it, that dragon is badass as all get out. But Steve is just...so gud.

So gud. I loved so many though like the Cat Lady and Merc's wingless wyvern and junk. So fun.
