Sprite Contest Discussion Thread

Post by Dragon Arbock on Mon Apr 06, 2015 3:14 pm

Please post questions and suggestions here-
As it stands, the contest thread is starting to get a bit too cluttered, to the point where it actually impedes my abilities to locate entries for judging.

Also, anyone have any suggestions for rounds? (I won't guarantee I'll use them, but I will consider everything.)

Maybe a round where you sprite a youtuber or something with trainer sprites overall. We didnt see that alot. Maybe overworld sprites are cool to.

Hm, maybe.
Sure we should do a trainer round soon enough- I just wasn't sure what I should base it around.

I can see the apocalypse of Pewdiepies and Markipliers and CaptianSparklez now.. (and a bunch of others I'll get ridicules for not knowing) Shocked
Eh, all in good fun, but enough people would have to want to do that round. If so, though, I don't mind.

Yeah when you do the round with the youtubers I see pewdiepie mariplier ect exploding. And I get why people maybe dont wanna join that round. Its just a idea and I'm happy when I see a trainer sprite round Very Happy.

What about a round where you do a trainer sprite or a mugshot of yourself?

I don't know how many people want to even remotely divulge their identity on the internet. Fan characters would be fine, but a self-portrait might not sit well with some people.

Too bad April Fools has passed but maybe a make the worst trainer sprite possible challenge as a joke contest if you run out of ideas. Of course there would have to be some limits such as it has to look like a pokemon trainer sprite. Maybe giving extra credit for common beginner stuff like jpegs, upscaling, mismatched proportions, etc.

Another possible idea is redoing an older sprite to make it better. A problem I see with this is that some people might not have old sprites to redo. Shocked

A third idea is a trainer sprite of a person cosplaying as a pokemon.

My final idea is to give everyone a small group of existing sprites, about 3, and have them make a trainer sprite from those. I can see everyone's entries being really similar though...

-I was thinking of doing a gijinka type thing where we turn pokemon into trainers.
-We could also make the back poses of trainers that don't already have them.
-We've already done mugshots of anime characters, so maybe trainer sprites of them instead. And since we already made trainer sprites for trainers in the new games, how about mugshots? (But maybe have the rule that you can't do a character/trainer you've done before).
-Maybe we could revamp old gen trainer sprites/mugshots or devamp newer ones.
-We could also make new gym leaders (trainer sprites and/or mugshots) and their designs have to match their pokemon types.
-Maybe make trainers based off of a certain theme (so if the theme is "Angelic", we could either made angel trainers or sweet, little kid trainers; basically use words that could have multiple meanings to allow for more creativity/interpretation. "Magic" could be used for witches, warlocks, mages, elves, etc). Since this one has more interpretation involved though, emphasis on judging would be more on how well you made the sprite if it remotely fits the theme (for Magic theme, the difference between a magician and a clown; one obviously deals with magic, one does not). I hope my explaining for this one helps ^^; It might be kind of a stretch.
-Maybe we turn sprites from other games/rpgs into pokemon sprites.
-Having an overworld sprite contest would be different. I'm just kinda hesitant about adding it because overworlds are almost too simple to make and not a lot of details can go into them, but that's just my opinion.

Any, or none of these can be used, I'm just throwing ideas around

Heh, you guys all know what Telefang is? (Ever hear of the fake pokemon Diamond?) That could be fun.

As far as the pokemon into trainers ideas, there's two different types- Pokemorphs, which are basically a splice between pokemon and trainer, and cosplays/, where the key aspects of the pokemon are worked into the trainer's clothes, etc. It can be hard to draw the line between the two though.

I also thought about having people take a previously judged sprite and fix it accordingly, but we might have to wait on that for a little while.

A certain theme would be cool. But Angalic, the options seem a bit small when you do a theme maybe Mytholigie(Myhtologic idk). With that options are a bit wider. Or we could do Creepypasta's as a round maybe a Mugshot round? No? Nobody thoughs so Razz.

Creepypastas sound really nice but it will probobly be floded with The Rake, Jeff the Killer and Slenderman(especialy slenderman).

Ah yes, and Ben Drowned. This sounds like a plan though- too bad Halloween is so far away. It won't do to save it for an eternity.

@Yria I've participated in contests that have done both mythological creatures, and greek mythology rounds, so that is a possibility.

Thats great, although it doesn't need to be a mythological theme.

For a CP round.
It would be flooded with all of that... And yes halloween is far away so is my B.day so this wouldn be a option I geuss.

Hmm... I wonder what the net round will be...

..I guess so? I can only see it happening because they're object pokemon, and you basically have things like that in Magneton and Klinklang already.

Well guys, I lifted one suggestion from this thread for this week's round. Have fun.

Also, would anyone be interested in an SCP round? (assuming enough of you guys know what I'm talking about- you might not though.)

An SCP round would be amazing but is it a pokemon or a trainer sprite, some SCPs are even objects

I'd probably say to go with the humanoid and creature SCPs, at which point you could make either pokemon or trainer sprites.

SCPs are sort of like creepypastas. The SCP foundation is a secret group of researchers and agents that track down, capture, and study anomalous and potentially dangerous objects and creatures. SCP itself stands for secure, contain, protect. There's a whole wiki for it, but a reason it became more popular is the game SCP Containment Breach.
