    So, you pm your submission or may you post it here?

    And you say only ''scratched'' sprites are allowed. But your example is art, not a sprite. So is there a ''competition'' for the art and for sprites or is it just mixed?

    It's mixed. And you can post your suggestions here, but unless it follows the format I posted, I'll assume it's a comment.
    I'll fix the wording so it's less "iffy"

    And this isn't a competition, just a place for people to display their best art.

    So just so i'm clear, does it have to be pokemon related? Or just artwork you are proud of?

    You know instead of doing a topic to submit, why not be a scout and look throughout this section?

    For example, weekly you will save (and your judges I suppose) work throughout the subsection that is posted, and at the end of each week, make a topic for "This Week in the Studio" or something like that.

    It'll be much better for accurately representing this section. Plus you can do the results of the month for The Smog.

    I like the idea, but I think you can do something much better.

    i really like that idea and i think it's a legitimate thing to pursue.

    even the smog idea. i mean, i check smogon daily, but only really for firebot, CAP, and this section. it would make the smog even more appealing to me, and i'm sure a lot of others are in the same boat. and there would be more incentive for our artists to submit more.

    Any art that you're proud of.

    @Arch

    I'll go through the most recent posts, and choose one each week and month. People can still submit here, though. If anyone wants to be a judge, they can help me choose...

    Holy crap, Doran Dragon, I can't believe I missed that! You did that in Paint?!
    You can be sure it will make the next weekly feature.

    Anyway, just an update:
    I havn't updated this in a while, so the whole week system is starting on Month 2. Secondly, the monthly features are going to be the winner of the Smogon Art Contest, run by Bucky.

    Unless something is posted here, I need to scout for good weekly features. It would be nice is people could send me some suggestions.
    Also, I'd appreciate it if someone would make a banner for this.

    Mmmmm, I figured this was completely dead.
    This is probably why the smeargle's studio mods didn't reply to my approval of a blog type weekly update.
    Anyways, I figure we can build off of this, I'll submit ideas later, I don't have enough time on my comp. ):

    Oh go on!

    Let's turn our attention to Swaggersaurus's Meowth and its nose, I feel like I'm gonna go to the Museum of Fine Arts and look at a Japanese block print and see that Meowth behind a samurai somewhere.

    spoiler: samurai were pokemon trainers

    ^ Never mind

    Uh so it was updated again.
    Discuss?

    Also I might use this as my own art thread, although I'll still keep the weekly and monthly features... although I can't do anything right now, due to my tablet being broken down...
