    Bert's Tentacruel-Kabutops-fusion used the scythe as bat and hit an home run! Congrats!

    Challenge: "Feeling Lucky?!"
    This challenge is in theme with this week's holliday: Saint Patrick's day. You will need two things to complete the challenge succesfully: luck + green!
    You have to use a random number generator to choose a pokemon to recolor. The colors you will have to use are the typical green colors of the forum (serebii.net-style).

    Since you don't have "shade-colors" (darker/lighter shades to make shading) you will have to make them on your own. The focus of this challenge lies here in choosing the right colors (not too bright/pale or dark/light). Find the right balance by trying out more things!

    Also a white outline is allowed this week!

    Feel free to ask questions if something isn't clear.
    Try to be so original as possible ^^ Good luck!

    Ps: I'm running out of ideas so if you have any challenges you want to see in the next GWSC's please Pm me!

    Restrictions/TroubleShooting
    - size limit: 96*96
    - White outlining is allowed

    Post your entry here in the thread by 11:59p.m (GMT+1). Sunday, and voting will occur the following Monday!
    Thanks to everyone who has entered the contest, and will enter this one.

    I think I took this far too literally.

    Alright; I rolled #020, Raticate.



    I don't know; I almost feel the complete-greening gives it an almost shrub-like look.

    (BTW When I said "I think I took this far too literally" I mean I didn't use any other colors; I replaced the black outline with a grey one, and I even recolored something as trivial as the teeth. xD)

    Alright, did the best I could, including making different shades of the colors I was given to work with. The fates determined that I would be working with Kingler this week, so here we go:



    I'm actually pretty pleased with how this came out, too, I was a little worried at first about how it'd look.

    I don't need the luck of the Irish when I have the heart of the cards!



    wanted something with 4 colour palette, but oh well.

    Edit: I just noticed that other than Saif5's, everyone's been getting gen 1 pokemon. could we get someone from the other gens as well? XD

    What do you mean by patterns? The ho oh looks like everyone elses, colored it its own way. What's wrong with it?

    I don't have a computer or laptop but when I was younger I used to make tons of sprites, I kind of miss doing it. I wish I had money for one. Lol.
    I left the site. I'm not going to deal with tons of admins bashing on me. I have feelings and I'm mature and I don't need it. Bye nice people.

    There is nothing wrong with ,Ex's entry. He didn't use any pattern, at least not any I can see.
    I just answered his question ^^

    If you were to change, say, Poliwhirl's swirl into a triangle or something. Or add/remove/change triangles, stripes, etc.. You can't edit your sprite, just the colors.

        Spoiler:- Mfw these entries (image warning):

    Question: Do we have to recolor the WHOLE sprite green, or can I get away with small portions of it?
    (Example: Coloring Blastoise shell green only)

    Question 2: May I use other variants of green to make the contrast of colors work on the sprite?
    (Example: Instead of an Arceus that is pure puke green, contrast it with other shadings and lightings of green where texture of colors are different)

    Question 3: Can we use OTHER colors with the green, or are we strickly stuck with it?
    (Example: Gold & Green Roserade)

    By looking at what the first post says, I'm guessing the whole sprite has to be recolored with only those shades of green, since its for St Patrick's day.

    Question1: Yes the whole sprite should be colored. White/Black parts can still stay the same color since they are also part of the forum layout.
    Question2: You can alter the proposed colors a bit (darker/lighter or brighter/paler). But it should be clear you started from the original serebii.net style-colors.
    Question3: Nope, only green! ^^

    Rolling from 1-721, I rolled a 583: Vanillish



    I used serebii format colors for bordering/outlining and used lighter versions of those colors for contrast!

    EDIT: As much as I love outlines, I did not do it this time because it made my pokemon look like it was ripped out of a piece of paper :3
