Event Spriting Contest


Hello everyone!
Do you hear that? Some new, mysterious creatures have been lurking around Emera Town, but their appearance has elluded all of us, including Riako and the other Staff members. In an attempt to finally solve the mystery, we're turning to you, dear users. Help us put a face sprite to the mystery lurking in Emera.

We don't know anything about them, nothing at all, not even where it might've come from or how it'd gotten here. We don't even know what to call it, which really makes for awkward conversations.

Maybe you guys have an idea. What do the mysterious pokémon look like, do you think? Is it big? Small? Does it evolve? Is it something that doesn't evolve? We're drawing a total blank, so answer those questions however you like!

So. . . what exactly do you need to do? I pretend to hear you thinking
Create your own event sprites!

Reward Time
As with all contests, there's something in it for everyone who joins. If you're one of the winners, not only is your sprite going to be part of a site-wide event distribution, you'll also get a shiny of that sprite as a prize!

If you join, but don't win, as always there'll be a consolation prize as a thank you for joining (:

Sprite Requirements
!! Your sprite must NOT have been published elsewhere, anywhere. Only new and original sprites are allowed !!
Sprite Size: The size of the canvas you use, should be 96 x 96 px . The sprite itself doesn't need to be that size, but please fill in the needed space with transparent pixels.
Sprite design: You are free to choose any (non-legendary) pokémon as a base for your sprite. Whether the pokémon has an evolution line or not, is also entirely up to you. You can even try your hand at a mega version of a pokémon. However, the bigger it is, the more impressive it needs to be, so they're worth being released. But, most importantly, have fun!
Obtaining and evolving: You are allowed to suggest a way to obtain* and/or evolve** your event-pokémon. This is decided upon separately and will not affect your event-submission. It's possible for your event to win, but still be obtained/evolved differently.
copyright: The sprite has to be done completely by you. You are not allowed to include (parts of) sprites from other artists, excluding official sprites, which can be used as a base. Previous sprites can also not be submitted. You are NOT allowed to publish your sprite anywhere during the contest and event time.

* example: "Collect 10 Ice Cream Cornets on Rumble Missions"
** example: Fill your Party with the Event Pokémon and 5 other Water Pokémon in order to make it evolve

How to enter
Please use the following form and send it through PM to CatLady. If you post your event in this thread, it will be disqualified.

[b]Event name:[/b]
[b]Event description:[/b]
[b]PokéDex Entries:[/b]
[b]Event sprites:[/b]
-Egg sprite
-Normal line
-Shiny line
[b](Optional) Evolution method:[/b]
[b](Optional) How to obtain this Event:[/b]


Your entry should look something like this [with your own sprites]

QuoteEvent name:Surfer Machop, Machotide, Beachamp
PokéDex Entries:Surfer Machop: Though small in stature, it is powerful enough to surf on huge waves with its surfboard.
Machotide: It's a well-trained surfer which likes to spend its whole day at the seaside.
Beachamp: This well-built Machamp is very popular among female Pokémon on the beach.

Event sprites:
-Egg sprite

-Normal line

-Shiny line

(Optional) Evolution method: Machotide evolves into Beachamp when Machotide and a Female Lopunny are both in your party.
(Optional) How to obtain this Event: Win 500 Hangman


The amount of accepted user-made Events depends on the quality & quantity of the submissions. We cannot release 3 huge Event Distributions within one month, but we can obviously publish 3-4 minor Events in a month.
We'll pick the best submissions and create an individual Event Distribution plan for October.

Please submit your finished sprite(s) through PM only

Deadline
The deadline is September 27th, 23:59
The winners will be chosen by us, the staff, based on quality.
The winners, by name only, should be revealed about a week later.

Please keep SPAM posts out of this thread (:

Most important of all, though, I hope you all HAVE FUN~

If I knew how to sprite, I’d be sprinting my Sundaeite (Vanillite) I drew. I am curious to see other users’ sprites, though.

So, im wanting to ask (might be obvious somewhere, but i didn't see it) Is it only one submission per user? Because i have like 3 planned that would go very well.

Favorite plushies would be Meowstic, Swirlix, and Vanillite.

@Pinkan - Personally, I'd set the limit at two submissions per user.

Just a question
Are certain spriting sites ok to use for this?

Do we need to do the whole evoline or just the base-pokemon?

And are we allowed to use official sprites for the base and modify it?

@XxToxicxX - I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'spriting sites'? As long as you (and only you) made the sprite, you're allowed to use whatever tools you prefer.

@Akemie - If you use a pokémon with an evolution-line, you need to do the whole evolution-line. The only exception to this, is if you try your hand at a mega-evolution.

As for your second question
Quote from first postYou are not allowed to include (parts of) sprites from other artists, excluding official sprites, which can be used as a base.
:3

@EvilWeasel - Yes you do.


[Also, there's an additional requirement about the canvas-size]

@EvilWeasel - The reason there's no theme given, is because the sprites shouldn't have a theme.

If using an official sprite as base, which is allowed according to the contest rules, is there a prefered Gen we should use the sprites from or can we pick what we can work the best with? (As long as it´s not a Gen 1 or 2 Sprite, I mean)

You can use whichever sprite you work best with.
