Next up! While CAP1 is basically done, we will trek on and continue crafting our pre-evo. We've gotten most things taken care of, but all that stands left in our way is sprites, movepools, and maybe dex entries after that. Movepool submissions will go up after the name polls finish up, so hoorah. That said, this is the sprite submissions thread for PreCAP1. This is where we will develop the server face for our first community-made little CAP. Below I will include both what our CAP looks like (and its sprites) and what our PreCAP looks like, so that people looking to work on PreCAP1's sprites will know what it'll eventually turn into. Here's the CAP's artwork: Typing: Normal / Fighting Base Stats: 55 HP / 85 Atk / 80 Def / 20 SpA / 70 SpD / 40 Spe Abilities: Scrappy / Prankster Rules: 1) Sprites should be inspired by the winning design from the Art Poll. It does not need to be an exact rendition of every detail of the design; "artistic license" is granted to all spriters. However, drastic deviation from the selected art design is discouraged. 2) All sprites (front and back) can have a maximum size of 96x96 . 3) All sprites (front and back) must have a complete, unbroken, distinguishable outline. It does not need to be a black outline, but it must be clearly distinguishable from the adjacent interior colors of the sprite. 4) No action effects, move effects, environment effects or additional objects can be rendered on or around the pokemon. 5) Sprites must be in PNG format. 6) Use 8-bit truecolor (aka 8-bit RGB) or less. This does NOT mean 256 color mode. 7) Use transparent backgrounds. 8) Fusions of other sprites are not allowed. All sprites must be scratch sprites. 9) Do not alter, fuse, recolor or otherwise modify another spriter's submission – unless the original artist explicitly gives permission. 10) All sprites (front and back) must use roughly the same size and pose when compared to each other. I expect anybody who wants to submit sprites to heed these rules very closely. Submissions that don't follow these guidelines will be disqualified, and the posts deleted. What goes to the actual sprite poll is decided by my personal preference and feedback within the thread, and that decision is final. By submitting something here, you are stating that you are willing to conform to these guidelines and standards, and that you won't complain about them in this thread or elsewhere. Additional Information There are 8 possible sprites: Front Normal Male Front Normal Female Front Shiny Male Front Shiny Female Back Normal Male Back Normal Female Back Shiny Male Back Shiny Female In most cases, spriters submit a Front Normal sprite first. Once feedback comes in and the poll nears, they make the other sprites. Animations are not required and will not be used as part of the final product; however, it does add to the "appeal" aspect of your submission. You do not have to make different Male and Female sprites, but it helps. Since there are only minute differences between most in-game male and female sprites, it's not very hard to tweak the sprite for a different gender. Some spriters have made noticeable changes between genders, and that's fine too. Shinies are just recolors, so that's not too tough. There's lots of people that can't scratch, that are willing to recolor your shiny, if you really don't want to do it yourself. Just ask in the submission thread and you'll get plenty of offers to help. Please look at your transparent sprites against different colored backgrounds, not just white. Much of this post was taken shamelessly from reachzero's sprite submissions for Tomohawk! <3 Have fun, and do your best, artists!
