Well, it's better than no rules, like the last contest.

Do you want something more specific? Like recoloring/scratch-editing a pokemon to matck a theme? People could use there creativity to somehow match the theme- "disco dance party" or something?

No, I'm pretty sure no theme > a boring theme.

Disco might be neat, but find a judge for it.

You need to keep the art style consistent. :/

The art style. Like the difference between a picture by Pablo Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci. They're different styles, and like art, two styles in one sprite don't go well.

OK, I get it now. I thought you were talking about something else. I understand what I did wrong on the sprite.

I personally would prefer a boring theme than no theme. No theme is too chaotic. I would like a scratching contest.

yeah, you can scratch stuff on the disco contest.

Any judges?

I'll judge, as long as I can enter too...

Put together whatever contest you think would work out and I guess I'll... add it to the first post or something. [shrug]

MY SPRITE WAS SO AWESOME IT COULDN'T HANDLE A RATING.

xP Naw, I see where you're coming from. I took a chance and it didn't turn out too well, and thanks for being polite about it.

For the next theme we should scratch enemies from other games in D/P style. c: With the size limits and color restriction and everything.

Third place?! Awesome! I didn't think I'd do that well.
How exactly would it work with multiple judges? Would one person judge some, and another judge the rest, or what?

As I remember, anybody can judge a set of sprites, as long as they aren't entered themself, or if someone else says they will first. I don't know.

Even though the contest is over, I fixed the sprite. 6/10 isn't all that bad, considering how many problems it had. I'm entering again in the next one unless it's scratch sprites because I'm horrible at that. I don't care what the theme is, really. Maybe making a new evolution of an existing Pokemon? actually, that's pretty boring too..

Yayy 8.5~ I think your rating on the ghost rapidash was a leeeetle harsh, especially because you gave the Gallade recolor a 7.5. But that's just me.

I'd like to judge the next contest, whatever it may be. |D

How about a contest to turn a Pokemon into a real animal? Like the one it's based on. Because most people here are mortally afraid of scratching but if you tell them they're editing a base sprite they won't think twice about it.

The Gallade recolour looked mostly okay, though, while the ghost rapidash irritated me a lot. :/ But my numerical ratings are kind of... pulled out of my ass really so. [shrug] You're probably right, yeah.

Yeah, anyone can judge, but you probably shouldn't if you entered and it's also probably a bad idea to do it if someone says they will and it's been less than a day or two after sprite collecting.


Sure, Involuntary Twitch. JUDGE WHATEVER I also don't care if multiple people want random themes. And not even necessarily the same theme. I don't care about the existence of other contests: I just don't want a ton of threads in the sprite forum about contests.

FEEL FREE TO USE THIS THREAD FOR WHATEVER, GUYS. REALLY.

Thanks for the criticism, I'll work harder on my scratching & shading skills. However, I'm confused at what you mean by 'buh @ giant hole where butt should be'. Could you please elaborate?
