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)

Smaller turnout this time but great entries!

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

Quote

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.

Quote

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 now me, Smirks) ...or posted in the feedback and discussion thread here to avoid thread derailment.

Maybe we should have a round where people have to sprite what they think other users look like?
