The WSC 2nd Birthday Tournament

Sorry guys, this was meant to go up earlier but I got dragged on a trip down the O-Bahn XD Anyway.

So it's now been two whole years of spriting contests, pretty amazing. Origins lie in the social group, Serebii Spriters, and we started flooding the forum with threads on the 20th of October 2008 and polls a week later on the 27th. To celebrate, the birthday tournament is back. Once again, get ready for two weeks of intense spriting and voting.

For those of you new to the birthday tourney, there are two divisions, Casual and Pro. Casual is for anyone who hasn't won a week of the WSC before, and Pro is for those who have. If there are free spots in the Pro division near the end of the week, people who have been in a decent number of champion polls but haven't won any yet have the option of filling them. There a maximum of 20 spots in each division.

This is a blind contest, so you don’t post to say you’re in, or showing your entry. If you do that, it won’t be eligible for entry. To enter, PM your entry to me and I’ll re-upload it so nobody can tell whose it is from the location. To make it more fun guys, please don’t tell anyone which is yours, or spend your time trying to guess. Just have fun and pick the best ones! The criteria for each round will be released as necessary. You'll have progressively less time for each entry, so be aware before entering.

TLDR;
Happy 2nd birthday WSC! So we're gonna make, well, more sprites. There's a group for people who've won, and another for people who haven't. 20 people max in each. Entries have to be PM'd to me, not posted, and you can't say which are yours. Make sure you have time to do up to 4 sprites in two weeks.

So, say you were going to recolour a pokemon to green, are you aloud to use different shades on different parts? (for example starmie, do the yellow part darker than the purple part?)

Zadros
11th October 2010, 1:04 PM
Yeah, as many shades as you want are allowed.

Devamp a single-stage, non-legendary DPPt sprite to GSC style.


1. I assume you mean a sprite from DPPt, and not a pokemon introduced in DPPt, correct?
2. Does that rule out HGSS sprites, or did you just forget to mention them?
3. As gen 1 and gen 2 pokemon are not forbidden, do you mean we have to keep the pose for the sprite instead of spriting a completely new sprite for a pokemon in gen2 style?
4. Are you aware that the size limit for GSC is 54*54 Edit: 56*56
5. Please don't use green text. :(

Ah, I'm sure you'll win at some point :)

Btw, won't people who saw your entry know that it's yours? Because at least 2 people saw it (noobbiess and myself), so would that mean that you would have to redo your entry? Just wondering :3

NOw for the recolour, is it the purple we have to change or the whole sprite?

Extreme Floatzel
11th October 2010, 10:16 PM
For the casual one are you allowed to leave certain colours the same if it would look stupid if it was recoloured to the same as the other recoloured parts, or if it was black and white?

No, I'm keeping it up so people don't make a stupid mistake again.

Also I don't get the problem with the greeen color. Then again I have no problem with I_D's orange, which I think people complain about too much.

1 Yep
2 I just wanted to limit the field a bit.
3 Yeah, keep the same pose.
4 Right, I knew that XD
5 Now now, I must have my eccentricities. I isolated it to headings and stuff.



yeah, never :/

Oh, you didn't mention that in your PM...

Whole sprite

Well, you can of course use different shades of that colour.

lol, yeah, bold and red. Didn't think it'd fail me.

Wait...so can we resprite the Pokemon, but in the same pose? Because a devamp turns out much more like a devamp if scratched.

Q: Do we get like eliminated or anything at the end of rounds, or everyone's in till the end?

I may be reiterating a past question, but are glows allowed?

To clarify because I don't understand a little;
For the devamp, do we basically 'de-colour' the sprite? As in we just keep the lineart/outline and just change the colour to meet GSC requirements so no scratching is really involved or necessary.

Consider it a challenge =)


Q: Do we get like eliminated or anything at the end of rounds, or everyone's in till the end?
Yep, last year's Casual went 18>10>4>2>1 and Pro went 8>6>4>2>1


I may be reiterating a past question, but are glows allowed?
Nope, no glows.

No, you can change the outline. Just make it the same pose, within the old size limit, and use less colours. Usually there is some scratching involved.

Keep the same pose and shrink it to the appropriate size (Should be right, that's what I did)

Edit: Never mind, Ninja'd by Zadros :P

A devamp(to GSC style, let's say) is where you take an existing sprite of some sort and change it to the style of that generation. They allow two colors, plus black and white as the darkening and highlighting shades. Dithering was a major factor in the shading aspect.

The size limit is 56x56 and for this contest, pretty much just keep the same pose, while resizing it (in any way) to the size limits of 56x56.

Like so:

Just an example of a devamp I whipped up really fast. (Not my contest entry) Notice i kept the same pose, yet redid the sprite in the 56x56 size limits.

Hopefully this is useful. :)

Gahh.. I devamped my entry but it's not single stage. Worked so hard on it too, now i'm not in the mood to sprite. ;-;

Zadros
14th October 2010, 11:01 AM
Spots remaining for Casual are limited, I have 14 accepted, maximum 20. If you have sent me an entry but I told you to change something, it is not counted as accepted. First come, first served, so if you need to fix something up or make your entry, I'd do it soon =)

EDIT And, when there's two days remaining, I'll open up Pro to anyone who's been in at least three champion polls. If someone swaps from Casual to Pro, I'll notify you so people can use up the Casual spots.

-Raiga-
15th October 2010, 1:04 AM
I'm curious, for the casual section are we able to use shades of black and white, or just black and white themselves?

Because if its just black and white themselves I'm afraid I don't understand why you say feel free to use them as much as you want, because if you do use them to recolor anything you would be changing the shading.

Zadros
17th October 2010, 4:07 AM
Yeah, shades of black and white too.

Oh, Casual is full. Unless anyone swaps to Pro, that's the lot folks.

Kookie
17th October 2010, 6:19 AM
What if there isn't enough people in the Pro by the deadline? Is it postponed or something?

Starrmyt
17th October 2010, 1:46 PM
I'm pretty sure it will just cut off like last year; we only had 8 entrants in the Pro section i think.

Zadros
17th October 2010, 1:54 PM
No, we just proceed with however many there are. Last year there were 8, I now have 10 so it'll work.

-Raiga-
17th October 2010, 6:17 PM

I was going to work on my entry once I got the question answered, but I guess whats in the red dashes any chance of that.

Heck if I know, but I believe I've been I've been at least 3 champion polls, guess I'll reluctantly have to do the pro section.

Zadros
18th October 2010, 1:44 PM
So uh, I just remembered it's Monday ^^; Took the day off uni and it felt like Sunday. Polls tomorrow.

Did you not read the post ABOVE YOUR OWN?!?!? That should answer your question.

...The post above is a post from zadros explaining when he'll put the polls up. I myself am not trying to be rude by saying it, just make sure when you're telling people to read something correctly, you do the same.
