    This poll determines the battle sprite that will be used when the pokemon is implemented on the CAP battle server. Sprite submissions for the art poll will be selected by the Topic Leader, based on preference and feedback in the Sprite Submission thread. The sprites for all voting options should be included in the OP and referenced by artist name in the poll.

    This is a clicky poll where you may vote for as many submissions as you desire. Please do not vote for all of the submissions as it may lead to unnecessary extraneous polls. The options are:

    Doug, just Doug, gets my vote. It's the only thing that looks even remotely draconic (with the little fang detail).

    I have to say, I liked a lot of the sprites, and I honestly don't mind who wins. That being said, I'm really rooting for Clawed Nyasu's sprite.

    DougJustDoug's for sure. Aragornbird's would be great too though.

    Its good to see HeadPunch´s submission is doing relatively well, 6 votes so far is not that bad, and Wyverii is doing well too. I know I have repeated this over and over again, but HeadPunch is, as of my, my favorite sprite, I just hope it manages to pass the round

    Doug's sprite was really amazing, he involved a dynamic and relatively new pose, with the awesome shiny sprite i love and the effort he placed in making the sprite, doing all the changes people sugested, show how much he worked to make a great design, which he did.

    Clawed Nyasu's is a very good one, with the bulky and "in guard" pose he added, looks very well done, and while being cute, it keeps the dangerous sense the dragons should have.

    Aragornbird's did an amazing job by adding beutiful light details on his sprite, using a combination of cuteness and bulkyness like few other contendants, and i really like his idea for the gender difference.

    Wyverii's one has a tremendous pose, coupled with the eyes looking at the opponent like thinking "im going to destroy you!". It looks like a dedicated sprite and a great shiny color too.

    Awesome job this CAP spriters! You never let the community down x)

    Wow. I never would have believed that this many submissions would be so good. Aragornbird's is still my favorite, but I need to give mention to Doug's. I'll be honest--I couldn't stand it in the beginning, but all of the changes he made in the last day or so have only now started to "click" in my head. The heads in particular are 394032 times more appealing to me now. There are still a few things I don't like about the body and legs, but to each their own, right?

    And I'm throwing a vote to Estranged. Despite the fact that his sprite is weaker on the mechanics side compared to many, it has my favorite pose ever, and besides the huge claws, the most stylistically true to the original design, imo.

    DJD was the best backsprite, I wish I could vote for his back, and wyverii's front.

    I voted for aragornbird's, but I liked DougJustDoug's shiny color. White and Light Blue would look absolute amazing on this Pokemon, I wish ara had used those colors.

    How come when you quote someone there's a "Fat" before their name?

    Voted for Wyveils. Though the other spriters did fanatastic jobs as well. So Im pretty sure I will be happy with whoever the final winner is.

    It was a toss up for me between aragornbird's and Doug's design. I ended up going with aragornbird. I like the how the positioning for the back sprite in each are closer up than the other submissions, but the pose seems a little more natural for me in ab's.

    I wish Atyroki submitted the first sprite he made, but hey you can't get everything you want so I voted for KoA.

    I personally feel that AB's is the superior sprite. Everyone put in a fantastic effort though.

    Even though they aren't "big names" yet, a few of the unsung spriters are doing better and improving at a good rate. A little part of me is rooting for the underdogs this round, I might try spriting the next CAP just because you guys always put in a good effort.

    I'm finally starting to feel like the CAP art is stabilizing, the good get better and the better stay good.

    Even though I only voted for my very favorites, I think that any of these would make a fine sprite for CAP8. I'm proud that we have such talent around here. :D

    Had to go with DougJustDoug's submission on this. I loved everything about it from the lightning where the necks meet the cloud to the different take on the back sprite. Despite that all of the sprites look great and I would be fine with any other sprite winning.

    Voted for Aragornbird, as I liked his best. Though DJD's and KoA's are also awesome, and would not mind if they won.

    Aragornbird you get my vote~

    It's very cute and 'bulky' which works for it and the back sprite is truly superb. Extreme work.

    I voted for Doug and Aragornbird. Doug's backsprite is AMAZING and Argornbird's front sprites are perfect... also Aragornbird's shiny colour scheme is by far the best.

    I only voted for Aragornbird, as I really want it to win so I decided not to vote for Doug, Nyasu or Wyverii as well. They still were amazing, especially Doug's back sprite. What I love in Aragorn's? Well... simply put everything! The colours (both; normal and the shiny), the pose and the drawing which makes it look bulky, cute and totally awesome. Good job everyone!
