THEME/TOPIC: "Crossover Chaos" sprite a pre-existing non-Fire Emblem published video-game character in Fire Emblem style.
-either translated into the style itself, or reimagined/redesigned into a Fire Emblem class type.


(Examples: Link in FE style, Sonic the Mercenary Hedgehog... etc... Have fun with it! :D )
----

Our example Entry: (does not have to match format)
[Name of character] Link [Entry Division] Splice/Edit

5a6ddbaca5f8745b2054a6d6cd462de7.png
-Credit: Fire Emblem Link sprite by DJ Patrino on The Spriters Resource

[spoiler=Original Art/Reference]

bf160dd5c8a59efd9e3d816c1e5b4d22.png


REMINDER: entry must NOT be a character from Fire Emblem
------

Rules of the competition for your reference.
[spoiler=Rules]
RULES:
1) only 1 entry per contestant, typically either in the Full Custom division or in the Splice/Edit division. (Unless those are not in effect)
-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 typically either go with split divisions, or single division. (Over 20 entries, or sizable enough division for both entry types will result in Split Division voting)
----

THIS ROUND will be Split Divisions: as we have 25 entries and multiple entry types

VOTING:
Voting will be split into three categories with an additional multi-choice vote,
-Best Regular Sprite ~less than 60x60~ (single vote)
-Best Larger Sprite ~over 60x60~ (single vote)

-Best Animated Sprite (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 votes for Regular/Larger/Animated=Winner of category

WINNERS:
Winner of Best Overall Sprite may also be the winner of Best Regular/Large/Animated categories.
> 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 winners.
> 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.


----

Voting Period: 3 days to vote. Voting will go until 11:59pm PST on Friday March 27th.

Hope you all enjoy the awesome entries! Great job every one! :D

PS: On general commentary, complaints and conduct within the thread... From the pinned Spriting and Competition thread.

There has been a lot of arguing amongst members in these forums (especially the competition sub-forum). I know that people can disagree and small quarrels are not a big deal but the sad part about this is the argument always gets out of hand. This is not only a frustration for myself and your fellow members but it is also thread derailment which is against the code of conduct.

The point of the competition threads are to enter in the competitions, to give critique to those who enter, and to vote for your favourite entry, not to bicker about who isn't following the rules of the competition. It is up to the person in charge of the competition to decide who does or doesn't follow the rules, not the participators and other members. If you want to have heated arguments with each other or think an entry is breaking the rules then do so via the personal messenger or some other form of private conversation.

Any further questions or concerns can be PMed to the current host!(That's me Errant, currently) ...or posted in the feedback and discussion thread here to avoid thread derailment.

Captain Falcon has no votes for Best Larger Sprite? I honestly thought that one was going to get a ton of votes...

Also sad that almost no one liked my entry. :( I honestly thought it turned out even better than my Frederick sprite...

Not about yours not being good enough, it's about other peoples' being better. And I mean that in the nicest way possible, if something else grabs the attention of people and they go "wow" then they are gonna pick that over something that doesnt make them say wow

So many entries, so many choices!

Man...the larger sprite vote was tough, but i voted. Damn, the turnout was gr9!

That.

Shulk.

Though.

Difficult decisions as usual

...so true. Have not decided my own vote yet with all these great contenders... D:

Think separating the animations and larger sprites seems to have worked... Or at least allowed a bit more vote appreciation for all the good entries, and they are all so good!:D

Definitely agree tons with separating the sprites by animation v <60x60 v >60x60. Especially since each category actually has a fairly sized population.

I'm not sure if I should vote for "animation that is the best" or "animation that works the best" or "animation that has the best sprites" or "animation that is best animated", though I am more than aware it is an opinion of interpretation I'm still stuck on that.

...probably just a general awesomeness overload. :V

EDIT: decided to go with 3 runners-up due to our 3 way tie.

...sorry for the lateness of the results, busy weekend. Here is a post with results I may touch up later.

our WINNER of round 3 of the Biweekly Battle Sprite Showdown: Crossover Chaos is...

BEST OVERALL SPRITE + BEST ANIMATED SPRITE

0MeqqFQ.gif

Lt.Smirks with their Shulk of Xenoblade Chronicles! 49 total votes

-Smirks garnered both the most votes for Best Overall Sprite and Best Animated Sprite, as well as most Single Category votes with 18/39, and Popular Choice with 31/39 for an 80% approval rating

Our two other division winners...

BEST LARGER SPRITE (more than 60x60)

cd1cbc5688.png

Etain with King of the Cosmos and Katamari of Katamari Damacy! 46 total votes

-Etain came in 2nd place overall, also garnering 16/39 regular votes, and Popular Choice with 30/39 for an 77% approval rating

BEST REGULAR SPRITE (less than 60x60)

fe_henryfleming.png

Kitsu with Sir Henry Fleming of Code Name S.T.E.A.M. ! 32 total votes

-Kitsu came in 7th overall, but first in the regular division with combined vote totals, with 5/39 regular votes, and Popular Choice with 27/39 for an 69% approval rating

We typically have 2 runners up as well, but we actually have a 3-way tie for the 2 Runners-up spots.

I have messaged those involved... therefore we will go ahead with 3 runners up. Merc, vilkalizer and Sea Lion if they wish to be a part of the theme selection process.

Anyways, Here are the total results.

Lt.Smirks will choose our next theme. I will PM the Winners Lt.Smirks, Etain, and Kitsu, and our Runners-up Merc, vilkalizer, and Sea Lion shortly to hash out the next showdown.

Once again, again... I think what I said last showdown applies...

Great job, and great round to everyone involved! I hope everyone enjoyed themselves, the turnout/entries were great, the commentary was excellent! I hope you look forward as much as I do to the next week's Biweekly Battle Sprite Showdown! :D

Wow, my entry did awful... I was never expecting that. I guess I'm not as good a spriter as I thought I was (my Frederick sprite was third place in the first contest). Or people here just don't like Pokemon, maybe...

And as I thought, most of the winning entries are animations. They have a huge advantage, after all. But at least the winner is a sprite I voted for!

everyone did their job well, but i'm gonna say it again, the overshadowing is strong with this comp.

i'm quite surprised some sprites fare better than what i've expected though.
