Theme: Fur Trade

---

[spoiler=COMPETITION RULES - PLEASE READ]

  • The contest theme is optional. The theme is provided as an additional option and is not mandatory.
  • 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 fewer 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.

I imagine it would be anything that has to do with the fur trade. Like fur traders, or fur wearing people, or... even furries, maybe? :p

(Insert witty comment here)

I didn't really know what to do so I just made Anna if she ever bought herself a Beast Killer/Horseslayer, and got married apparently?

Took me a while to remember who Jake is...Maybe he did, and got Anna a Beast Killer while he was at it, she's wearing a scarf made of the fur of a several Cavaliers' horses. That turned dark immediately ._.

Oh boyeeee, it's my first contest entry ever.

Though I'm not sure about the hat, looking at the other entries I think it would be fine, but can someone tell me whether or not it's okay?

I'm pretty sure you can't use any other mug other than the ones given, and that hat is Joshua's (I think), so maybe not okay? *shrugs* :/ I don't know much

Up in the rules it says:

  • Only use the given set of mugs; other mugs are not allowed. You may, however, elect to use fewer than the amount of given mugs. (Ex: 4 mugs are given, but you only use 3.)

So Joshua's hat and any other material you got from mugs outside the set given in the first post would be against the rules here. It would've been a good entry for the Mug Description contest but that's a different contest entirely.

Alright, fixed the sprite so it complies with the rules this time, but I think I did a good job retaining the original feel of the sprite

Looks so much better than my "Anna wearing a horse-fur scarf", though this one looks much shadier than the one with Joshua hat xD

Hah, thanks. I think it's because I added the Denning hood shadow onto the face. Also I'm really surprised at how well the random bandit guy's hair worked for fur.
