BATTLE SPRITE SHOWDOWN XXI ~Heroes Reimagined!~

Recommended Posts

Once again its time for... the BIWEEKLY BATTLE SPRITE SHOWDOWN!

Last round:
Our winner was Yoshthethird!

----

Current Theme:

Heroes Reimagined!

-Sprite a Fire Emblem character/class/creature in a new design.

Rules

Spoiler

RULES:
1) Only 1 entry per contestant.
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?

Voting and Winners

Spoiler

VOTING:
Voting will be split into two categories.
-Best in Theme
-Best Overall Battle Sprite
>Voting will run for 3 days
If there are a large amount of entries, Best in Theme will be divided into smaller categories based on whether an entry is custom, splice, or animation.
WINNERS:
(Open to new ideas for this)
Winning placement will be decided by total number of votes across categories.
>The winner gets to choose two potential themes either from a list or of their own imagination.
>The winner and runner ups will vote upon the themes to select one.
>The winner gets two votes in addition to theme selection.
>Second place gets two votes.
>Third place gets one vote.
>Whatever theme wins the winner's votes will be used for the next competition.
Note, votes can be split, if you have two votes they do NOT need to go to the same theme.

Any further questions or concerns can be PMed to the current host! (Errant) or posted either in the feedback thread or within this thread itself.


DEADLINE: Friday, August 11th at 11:59pm PST.

This is my redesign of the Dark Flier/Falcon.  I thought it was dumb that riding a black pegasus/falicorn gave the rider access to magic, so I wanted to design a mount that still looks different from the Falcon Knight's falicorn without having to be black.  I wanted to draw inspiration from more archaic depictions of unicorns, they used to be depicted with lion tails, goat beards, and cloven hooves.

I included the lion tail, but the cloven hooves and goat beard I didn't really include because... I don't know I don't think it woulda looked good on such a small sprite.  I mean the Tarvos' hooves are big enough to show they were cloven; the falicorns have such tiny hooves.  Anyway I also gave the mount a curved horn, it just looked more... Fell? I guess? More dark magic than blessed heal-y magic that the Falcon Knights have access to?

Now the sprite imo looks WAY better in black, but I just wanted to nail the point that it doesn't have to look black for it to look like a different class y'know?

Good luck spriting!

Unfortunately Speny, that Raven is not admissible due to being a previous work of yours.Igvn1fW.png

You are more than welcome to make a different entry and submit it though.

Some strong entries, Blaze, Yosh!
