A New Week, A New Contest!

Somehow I completely missed I_D's threads and thought he was only gone for a few weeks ^^; So, this week will be a special one for I_D.

Theme: Brain-melting Orange

Medium: (Glows accepted) Scratch/Fusion/Recolour/Cosplay/whatever

Size: 80x80 for pre-5th Gen sprites, 96x96 otherwise

Your task this week is to make a brain-melting orange sprite. For a scratch sprite it must be mostly orange, for a fusion use only orange Pokemon, for a recolour make something orange that isn't already, for a cosplay use only orange Pokemon. You can also revamp or devamp orange sprites. Basically, just make it really really orange, for I_D =) If you have a different style you want to do, just ask first, but it should probably be fine.

Go forth and orange.

EDIT Oh, and I noticed the second anniversary is coming up. If you remember, we had a tournament last year to celebrate, and if you guys want we can have another =) Feel free to give your opinion when you post your entry. But please, don't post solely to say yes or no. This thread is still first and foremost the entry thread.

Scratch I assume means fakemon as well, yes?

I love the theme of this week, I'll sertainly enter :)

I think we should host the tournament. I had a blast making those entries and really enjoyed it. I also think it would make the fan sprite section more alive, wich is always handy. I also would sertainly make 2 sections like last year: the ones who once won a wsc and the ones who didn't.

I know I'll enter, trainers are my speciality. Just one quickie question, since there are no defined 'Orange (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Pok%C3%A9mon_by_color)' Pokemon, should we just use something that looks orange, or do a red and a yellow close to each other?

Also, I like the idea of a tourney, we have them every so often on my other site, and they're always tons of fun!

Is there a glow limit, and if so, how large is it?

Duck Fella
4th October 2010, 9:06 PM
Seeing as the new size limit for sprites is 96x96 pixels, is that an okay size for making the sprite? Or would you rather we kept it in the 80x80 limit unless the actual sprite used is over that?

ORGANGE's main feature is its eye meltingly orange colour, which it enjoys showing off. It hates it when people close their eyes at it and may attack them.

Use a Pokemon that looks as orange as possible, like Dragonite or Charmander.

No, I don't think there's ever been a glow size limit. Just make it within reason I guess ^^

Well, if you're fusing or recolouring 80x80 sprites, I'd say keep it to that. If you're using 96x96 sprites, then keep it 96x96, and I'll probably say scratch can be 96x96 as well.


So, does shiny Shanderaa count?
Erm, I don't actually know what that is. Is it orange?

M4zz

so does it have to be the main colour class of orange, or can it have some orange? By the way, this sounds fun.

Actually, I_D usually made the limit one pixel thick, but I would say personally keeping the glow to the same size limit as the sprite(either 80x80, or 96x96 as the case may be) would be a good rule.

hope im not doing anything wrong, this is my first sprite contest, and criticism would be good as i want to improve.

Yes, since it's... orange. XD

Criticism is during the voting threads so wait till then, timmay. ^^

I assume all shades of orange are allowed, as long as they are from the orange category.

Can this be unrelated to Pokémon?
Also, can there be some other colours as well instead of only orange?

I'd say just Pokemon I reckon. And by other colours, you mean like Raichu has some brown, yellow and white? If so, then yes. Primarily orange, but can have other colours on it.

We only have one entry per person, but your scratch sprite exceeds the size limits anyway. Just wondering, what did you actually do to the Buizel?

Yeah, go for it.

It's just that you didn't really do any spriting... XD Check out the sprite tutorials thread if you need some ideas of what to do.

What are the size limitations then? It'd be helpful if you put the dimension on the first post, i was kind of planning to do a sort of large pixel art piece.

For a pixel over, I'd say no bigger than 800x800. That's plenty big =)

I'm quite happy with my entry :)

Reshiham was incredably plain, so I thought it would be nice to brighten him up.


And he was easier since he was one plain colour.

Because only one shade of orange is too plain. And I_D is a colorful person, not just a shade.

Other people can post it up for you once they've WBG'd it for you or something. It does help if you edit your first post with the final sprite though, avoids confusion for the person making the polls.
