An ambitious spriter, an expert in art looking for a new challenge
or just discovered the magical world of pixels?
Everybody can have a place in this tournament.

Welcome, this is the Spriter of the Year Tournament 2010 or the SYT 2010
With a little tutorial of each round, every spriter has the opportunity
to participate without any problem.
The explosion of new talent will give this tournament a great push
in the back which will lead into surprisingly beautiful entries and extremely strong new competition.
That in combination with a lot of experienced artist,
this tournament will be certainly end in a heated battle
for the title of Spriter of the Year.

So how do I enter?

Got the spriting-vibes? Better participate soon then. You can just post it on this thread, it’s that easy.
But that isn’t all. Of course you have to send an entry too.
This you can do by PMing me with the entry, so you don’t have to post it in the thread.
If your mind isn’t where it supposed to be and you posted your entry in the thread, you can just delete the post and send the entry to me.
I will personally check whether you have kept it to the rules, wich you can find below and I will contact you as soon as possible if you didn’t. You can just send your new entry back to me and I’ll take care of it.

Don’t have much time or accidently deleted your entry?
Don’t worry, if you send your entry too late, you name will be in the poll but there will be no entry visible until you send it.
Make sure that if you are too late with your entry the first round, you say you’ll participate the tournament on the thread itself so that I know you’re participating.


How does this tournament work?

There are several round wherein you always have to send one sprite to me.
The amount of round will depend of the amount of participants.
After each round there will be a poll findable on the ‘fan sprite’ department where you can vote.
A few participants with the lowest votes of their poll will be eliminated from the tournament.

It would be a big shame when you just figured out how to make a nice sprite and then get eliminated. Or when you really find the next theme really funny but the round before you got didn’t make it.
Or maybe you just had a rough week and you didn’t really feel like you got eliminated justly, then there is a solution for it.
You can send an entry for a round after you got eliminated! What?! Then you just can wait till the finale and then enter?!
No unfortunately you can’t. You can get try ONCE more to get back in the tournament by sending an entry for the round after you get eliminated or the round after that.
Your entry will be in the poll, like every other entry but it will have a small disadvantage.
If you enter the round after you got eliminated, your actual votes will only be 75% of the votes you got in the poll. If you wait one more round, it will be 50%.
If you manage to get enough votes, even with this little disadvantage you are back in the race!

So, if you are capable of surviving it to the finals there will be one last round.
The participant with the most votes wins the poll and the title of Spriter of the Year.
This last poll will probably be around the beginning of January.
But don’t worry, I’ll take it easy on the holidays so everybody can enjoy them.


Voting system

There will be several polls after the deadline is reached. The participants with the least voted of each poll will be eliminated.
The amount of participants who get eliminated will be said in the poll itself.

The amount of votes you can give, will also be findable in the poll.
You can not vote for yourself. (watch out, this rules recenlty changed)
All there is left to say is, please vote fair, not tactical.


Ground rules

Some small rules so this don’t get to hectically.
First of all, there will be no copying others work. You can use the official sprites at all time, which are easily findable on bulbapedia.
Second of all, there will no saying foul or vulgar words on the thread or the polls and respect the other people.
And at last, you have to stick to the rules of the theme.
Please keep it clean.



So what can you actually win?

Well, you get the incredible title Spriter of the Year.
There also would be a trophy for every contestant. This of course is only in sprite-form so you can brag a little with your friends by putting it on your signature.
The top 3 of course will get a much bigger one, so more reason to give it your all.
The trophy will personally be given when the contest if finished.


Themes

Each round has a theme that you can find here.
Your entry is invalid when you don’t follow the rules said in the theme.
For the deadlines, I usualy use a date (day/month) and your entry has to be in before that day ends.
For every round there will be a little tutorial findable on this thread.
Round1
Deadline: 06/12
Size: 96*96 pixels
Recolor a Pokémon by using the colors of a Pokémon where the numbers are a anagram.
So for example, recolor bulbasaur (nr 001) with the colors of voltorb (nr 100)
Glows are allowed. animation aren't. You can anly use sprites from the 4th or 5th generation (you don't really have to choosep okémon from this generation, just the sprites)
You can't use the shiny colors of the pokemon to recolor the other.

Round 2
Deadline: 11/12
Size: 96*96
Usable sprites: You can only use 4/5th gen sprites (not the pokémon themselve, but the sprites)
Take a dual-typed pokémon and fuse if with 2 pokémon that each have one type of the dual typed pokémon. The other pokémon pokémon also can be dual typed, they just need one type of the other pokemon.
Animations and shiny colors aren't allowed.
For example: fuse giratina (ghost/dragon) with froslass(ghost (/ice)) and Ononokuso (Dragon)

Round 3
Deadline: 22/12
Size: 96*96
Theme: take a single-standed pokemon (so it doesn't have any evolutions of prevolutions) and revamp it into the style of the 5th gen. You have to revamp the gold/silver/crystal sprite (and you can use the second frame of the crystal-anymation.)
You can use a pokémon who still was a sigle-standed pokemon in the second gen (for example gligar)
For example: revamp a articuno
Extra: you can't use shiny colors, animations or glows
Round 4
deadline: 02/01
size: 192*96 (you can choose in wich dimention you take 192 pixels)
theme: take a evolution line of 2 pokemon and scratch a repose of them both. You may let them interact with each other.
For example: a scratched repose of spoink and grumpig
Extra: use the style of 4/5th gen, you can use shiny colors and glows but you can't make an animation

round5
deadline: 09/01
size: 96*96
theme: scratch a sprite of a fakemon (an invented pokemon of your own) that is the cute ledgendary (like mew,celebi,jirachi,...) It doesn't have to have a specific typing.
Extra: you can't use glows but you can (don't have to) make an animation. This animation can have a maximum of 10 images. It has to be 4/5th gen style.

Round6 (semifinals):
deadline: 16/01
size: 96*96
Theme: take an existing sprite and remove everything except the outlining. Then refill it with a whole new concept. (if the concept is'nt clear, check the tutorial)
Example: take the lineart of a voltob and refill it as jigglypuff lookes from above (the refill doesn't have to be a real pokemon but it has to be somewhat pokémon-related)
Extra: no glows and animations allowed

Round7 (FINALS):
deadline: 23/01
size: 96*96
Theme:
Limited color-challenge. You can only use 5 colors (diffrent shades also count as diffrent colors)(black and white included).
With this limited amount of colors you can do anything you want, as long as is has something related with smeargle.
So let your imagination go wild and have fun with it.
Extra:
It doesn't have to be a repose of smeargle, you can anything you like, for example make a huge smeargle-head or an fake evolution of smeargle...
Glows are allowed, but mind that they also count as a color.
Animations are also allowed as long as the total amount of colors you have used stays below the amount of colors you can use.
(for example: when your first image has 3 colors and your second 4 (with 2 colors matching with the previous image) this counts as (3+2=)5 colors



Tutorials

Get you sprite on the net and making it transparent
- Open your image and make the background in 1 color that you didn’t use in the rest of your sprite (preferably light green or yellow)

- Click on the background color and upload the transparent sprite
- Copy the link of your image
- Click on if you Pm me (or if you want to put it into a post)
- Copy the link there
- (preview the post to see if you didn’t miss any spot with the background)
- If there are any problems, just Pm me

animations:
- make diffrent sprites with the same size (the placement on the sprite on the image is important, so don't make 1 sprite completely left and the other one right because then your animation will be shaky)
- make them transparent and save them as a file, soemwhere that is easy reachable
- now go back to iaza and load the first transparized sprite
- click on frame animation and add your other transparized sprites
- select how many time you want your animation to repeat and how fast it should go
- copy the link and place it where you want

I trust this is approved by a mod, because you haven't said so.

If it is, I'll try enter. I've neglected spriting a bit recently, so I ought to try to get back into it.

Ehm... question about Round 1.

noobiess
28th November 2010, 5:24 PM
Only the origial color will be allowed to use. Otherwhise it won't be really clear wich pokémon you used...

When is the Round One Poll Going Up?

Around December 5/6. On the first post, Noobiess states the deadline is to be on December 5th, so one can make a logical assumtion that the polls will be up around there.

Ok a general anouncement:
Added some rules of the 1st post so it became more clear:
- animations aren't allowed
- glow are allowed

I'll upload the tutorial for making a glow soon.
If you want to add a glow to your send entry, you can just resend you entry to me with the glow

Ps: Thanx for the massive signup for now :) hopefully there will be many more to come.

Good luck too you all

3rd December 2010, 9:39 AM
I'm terribly sorry for the temperatly closing of this tournament.
I was a little overexcided and too soon with posting this thread, I guess. But it's all good now. But some rules are changed:

- you can't vote for yourself on the polls
- for this round, you must use 4/5th gen sprites and you can't use the shiny colors of the pokemon.

Hopefully this all didn't scare some of the participants away so we still could have a fun nice tournament :)
Good luck to you all :)

3rd December 2010, 8:44 PM
When you say 4th and 5th gen, do you mean the actual sprites or the pokemon?

noobiess
3rd December 2010, 9:10 PM
I mean the sprites, not the pokemon, so you can use for example voltorb... but it has to be the sprite of the 4/5 th gen

SoulFang
3rd December 2010, 9:15 PM
definetley entering. btw, so lets say i used pokemon #150, would i recolor it with pokemon #015?

SirHoney
3rd December 2010, 9:32 PM
I shall enter!

So if I choose to recolour a Noctowl (164), then I would have to recolour it in Moltes' colours? Or perhaps Vespiquen?

Chubbs
3rd December 2010, 9:42 PM
I know you already have my entry from when I pm'd you on Smogon, but i'm going to post here anyway.

noobiess
3rd December 2010, 9:46 PM
Yes, you can choose,

for example nr 150 can be recolored in 105,015 or 051. So you still have alot of choise :)

I also uploaded 2 tutorials,
one of adding the glow and one of making your blackground white without removing outlining (just because with the B/W sprites, you might have some problems with that)
Hopefully they are clear

I also changed the deadline to one day later (because I won't be able to make the polls that day, so I better can give you all a day extra then :p )

A small question here, first, can we change the entries after they are in? Second, can we do complex recolours, like adding the markings of the pokemon whose colour you are borrowing?

noobiess
4th December 2010, 5:06 PM
yes you can make patterns with the colors, and you can remake your entry too

Chubbs
4th December 2010, 7:34 PM
I think that my current entry will have to do, as I cant be bothered to remake it.

Hi,
I already made the tuturial for the next round, a fusion.
There are still 2 more to come, I'll make them as soon as possible.
I also put the theme of the next round, because everybody is able to make his second entry already anyway.

So for the ones who didn't get their entry ready, Pm them soon becausem onday the gates are closing :p

ps: cynder, I got your entry

Northern Lights
5th December 2010, 7:26 PM
^ You should send a PM in reply to people entries so that they know you got them, for instance I assume you got mine, but you havn't replied.

noobiess
5th December 2010, 8:50 PM
Well, if you are shure you Pm'ed it to me, I've got it. But I'll change the rule then, if you want me to send a note back that I got your entry, please say so when you're Pming the entry. I'll send a note back as soon as possible then.

I'm terribly sorry for the few mistakes in the polls, but this also is my first time make such huge polls :p I will check the entries more next time.

Also update the front post with the tutorial for the line art. The one for shaidngs will be next.

timmay
9th December 2010, 1:30 AM
for the fusion, does the base have to be the multityped one? eg giratina in your example, or could it of had frosslass as the base, if you know what i mean?

noobiess
9th December 2010, 10:12 AM
No, it doens't matter. You can choose wich pokémon you want to use as base.

edit:
I just updated the tutorials, the shading-tutorial is now available too

9th December 2010, 5:42 PM
Are we allowed to enter this round if we didn't realise this was on and didn't enter in the first round? because it says in how does this tournament work:Quote-Or maybe you just had a rough week and you didn’t really feel like you got eliminated justly, then there is a solution for it.
You can send an entry for a round after you got eliminated! What?! Then you just can wait till the finale and then enter?!
No unfortunately you can’t. You can get try ONCE more to get back in the tournament by sending an entry for the round after you get eliminated or the round after that.

Hopefully it's clear that the tail is part of the 'r' of 'year'... :p

Anyway, I'm going to make the polls tomorrow because I'm not going to have time tonight. And it gives people a little bit more time to make their entry...

I don't think alot of people going to get their entry ready, so I'll see what I do when I make the polls. I'll try to be as just as possible...

Can I suggest something? From now on, give everyone a week for each round. It's what WSC do, and that's always worked well. That was, if someone can't get on the computer today or is slow at spriting and likes to take their time, then they have a fair amount of time to do so.

The banner is OK, but you haven't put "the" after "of" and it is NOT clear that the tail is part of the "r". Pus, I can't figure out what is going on on the right.

Just wondered if we can use the intro sprites? (The actual sized sprites, not the overly large ones like the suicune mugshot in crystal)

noobiess
13th December 2010, 10:20 PM
I'll change the banner when I got time :p

Yes you can use those sprites if you want, cynder.

I also try to give each round one week preparation time. I just start counting when the polls are up. But since this week is much easier then round 3, I guess I put the deadline on saterday in stead of sunday.

I'm also going to show the deadline on the polls themselves because I noticed alot of the participant just didn't see the deadline...

Hi,
I have put the polls up,
I'm going to make some few adjustments to them later (put more info in it and stuff) but now I don't really have the time for it...

Hopefully many peopel will enter this time :)

Quick question about the polls: Is it 3 for each topic (3 in poll 1, 3 in poll 2, etc) for a total of 12 votes or is it 3 across the topics, for a total of 3 votes?

noobiess
14th December 2010, 10:45 PM
you can vote 3 times on each poll... so in total 12 votes

Maybe you could just post your proper entry in the thread below until Noobiess gets around to it, just so people who are going to vote can see what is supposed to be there?

Lucario, the next theme (due on the 19th!) is posted on the first page already, and has been for a few days.

yes there will be, one for reposing (starting from scratch for round 4) and another one but that will be after round 4

My computer actually has a virus, so I can't come on the net for a while. But I only use it in the week, so in the weekend I always will be able to be on the forum. I'm really trying to fix it so hopefully it will be fixed by thusday. If it doesn't, next week will be a big problem.
I will try then to find another pc to work on, but that might not work.
If I doesn't work, the round 4's polls will be up in the weekend, so you know you just have to wait till the weekend to see the polls.

So hopefully the virus will be killed :p

Hi,
I updated the first post with a list of the participants to let them see who is already eliminated and stuff like that...

Since critical0 already is eliminated and already made a sprite I thought it was a nice idea to post his entry here, for the effort he put into this sprite:

Here are also the winners of this week:

Wait, I tied for second place this round? Compared to Cynder's amazing sprite? Wow, I actually thought I'd get eliminated at first! And great job to everyone else, especially NorthernLights.

Cynder
20th December 2010, 11:47 AM
Woah, I came second? There were loads of sprites that were better than mine! I was surprised aragornbird and reaperneku didn't at least come third.. Ah well, I got lucky I suppose ^_^

And Epwna is a sceptile, thanks for that but your sprite was exactly where it deserved to be! (It was great!)

Epwna is a Sceptile

Noobiess, I'm not trying to be rude, but I shouldn't be eliminated. I had 4 votes. Server Crash had 5, but it was his callback, so only 75% of votes counted. 75% of 5 is 3.75, which is less then 4.

Admittedly, I didn't really read the rules over too much, but I was wondering if there is anyway I'm still elgible to enter.

Basically I got bored with a few of the themes and haven't entered since round two, so can enter round 5 with like 25% of my votes counting or something?

noobiess
3rd January 2011, 11:18 AM
-Riaga- You still can enter round 4, but only if you Pm me the entry before the polls are over. You'll get -50% of your votes. But you can only wait 2 rounds so you can't wait another round.

For the rest, I'm going to put up the polls in the afternoon. Hopefully I'll still get soem entries because some still didn't enter

noobiess
4th January 2011, 11:11 AM
Hi,

I've putted up the polls. As you can see there aren't much entries...
But there isn't much I can do so hopefully I will receive some entries during the week.
Otherwhise all the ones who made an entry go further.

I also added pokemazters entry in the polls...

Also edited the first post for the result of the previous round. Alot of them are now eliminated, but some of them still are standing.

The winners of this week are aragonbird, cynder and Northern Ligths and Pokemazter3001. The total winner was aragonbird with his wonderful image of milotic and feebas

So hopefully I still get some entries :)

also to epwna is sceptile: you are probably wondering why you didn't get enough votes for the previous round. Well, some votes where invalid because they voted for more then one participant.

Is Round 6 like a complete reskin? As in, leave the structure and lines from the previous mon, but give it new skin and filling using a nother pokemon?

Does this mean we can't add any extra lines to this sprite, we can only use lines available from the bas sprite?

Well you can add lines, as long as they are within the sprite. So you can change the inner lines, but not the outer lines.
I hope it's clear.And if it isn't, you can look to the tutorial. I added some inner lines there, but save the original out lines.

Alos wanted to say that I added the polls for round5. I'm glad alot of you entered :) Good luck :)

Ok, I posted the polls for round 6 and the theme for round 7: the finals! (know I was al ittle late with posting the polls, but that wa because I had an exam today :p)
So have fun with it...

The voting system of the finals is a bit diffrent: the one with the most votes wins... But the call-back entries still count but they still have to loose 25% of their votes then.

ps: I also made the trophee for the winner :) hope he/she likes it :)

So, hopefully you all enjoyed it very much, because despite the huge amount of effort I put into this, I'm really happy I made this tournament.
And hopefully it could create some new rising spriters :)

I'm also really going to try to do this next year too,
of course with some adjustments of the rules (so that not every polls has the famous ~no entry~'s :p)
so it will become much more organised next year.
So hopefully I see you next year :)
