[spoiler=COMPETITION RULES - PLEASE READ]

  • No large "full custom" (made from scratch) areas, parts, or pieces. The final result should be made of and identifiable to areas from the source mugs. If you feel like your entry may be considered "questionable" to others, you are allowed to post work-in-progress screenshots or other visual proof of your process.
  • Only use the given set of mugs; other mugs are not allowed. You may, however, elect to use less than the amount of given mugs. (Ex: 4 mugs are given, but you only use 3.)
  • Recommended color limit: 16 (15 on your mug +1 for background). This is rule is flexible, but being cautious with your color count as a general rule of thumb for good pixel art. You are allowed to deviate from the standard FE color choices if you wish to do so, as well.
  • Don't vote for yourself, or I will cry sad tears devoid of mod power. Seriously, if you think none of the other entries are worth a vote, please select the "abstain vote" option.
  • Hosts may enter contests. As a public poll is used as the voting platform, hosts receive no benefits or unfair advantages from running the contest.
  • Only 1 entry per member. However, you may edit your entry while the contest is still active. Please edit your first post, or quote the most recent entry you wish you submit for clarification, or the wrong entry may be submitted for voting.

VOTING:
A public poll (users can view voted results) will be put up once the entry period has ended.
Voting consists of 2 categories: 'Best in Theme' (single choice) and 'Favorites' (multiple choice).

'Winner' is the popular vote for 'Best in Theme' and the runners-up are taken from the most popular two from both voting categories. If there is overlap (e.g. 2nd place is the same participant for both categories), a weighted average of the total votes will determine the remaining runner-ups.

The winner of the contest will choose the next theme and a mug, and runners-up will choose the remaining mugs once the theme has been decided. If you have been selected to choose a mug for the next set, please try to limit choices to actual portraits and not shopkeepers, blank/placeholders, or dragon Idoun.

PARTICIPATION NOTES:
In the past, there has been a lot of conflict surrounding what does and doesn't constitute proper splicing techniques. This is not the venue to repeat that argument (if you're interested in it, please look at old rounds between 50 and 65). Please remember to allow participants the freedom to experiment and find their comfort zone in splicing. Give them votes when you believe they're successful, but do not use their entry as a platform to tell the world what you don't like.
If you have any questions or concerns, please PM the current host.

Oh, this looks interesting. I'll give it a shot:

Because who doesn't like redheads

It's 15 colours and just barely fits the hackbox.

EDIT: Now that I look at it again, that eyepatch makes no sense. Time for a quick fix:

Did circles scare you all off?

no, idoun did

i mean, i had an idea, but circles did something similar and thousands times better than I could have.

So I got completely stuck and didn't have any ideas for a long while and I'm really disliking the only thing I do have.

You don't have to use Idoun. It is a rather daunting mug, but, again, you're not required to use all 4 mugs. I've also added an amendment to the rules regarding non-standard mug choices (dragon Idoun, shopkeepers, placeholders), as we did sort of have this issue/complaint in the past.

....Dayam that's impressive, although incredibly custom. I don't know that the host has ever had to call one out for over-customing before. Let's hope you're not the first :)

Oh, it's happened plenty of times before; trust me. But whether an entry has actually been disqualified has yet to occur. I'll give it a look over later with some other spriters.

Three days left, mates.

When is the time for the contest to end. Unfortunately, I had an incredibly busy set of weeks at work and didn't really get to work on much of my sprite. I just want to know if I'll be able to finish it in time.

@Augestein - It ends whenever I get around to putting the polls up, pmuch. I'm not super strict about due dates, but as long as you manage to get something done before I put the polls up, I'll accept it.
