Alright ladies and gentlemen, here it is: the final hour. Through these series of polls, we're going to choose a piece of artwork to represent Syclar, the pre-evolution of Syclant. This poll is a little bit different than anything we've done here in CAP. You see, we already have a design for Syclar! The sprite at the bottom of this post is the finalized sprite that we will be using to represent Syclar. The job of our artists was to draw their interpretation of what the sprite was trying to indicate. What we're looking for is some artwork to put on site officially for Syclar. All of the below submissions do resemble that sprite in at least some form (they were allowed to have artistic liberty), but it is important to note that resembling the sprite is a key aspect of this poll.

This poll (unlike most art polls) operates on instant-runoff voting. This means that order matters in your votes, but you may vote for any number of choices that you like. A typical vote might look like this:

Most Preferred
Second Most Preferred
Least Preferred


If the voter wishes, he may post comments on his vote below the actual vote. Only the vote itself should be bold and none of the supplementary text should be bold.
Note that any posts that do not contain a vote will be moderated and the poster warned. If you feel compelled to say something in your own vote, you may do so, but please don't try to incite a discussion here. Keep discussion to the IRC channel, #cap.

Unlike other art polls, this one will only be open for 24 hours. Let's check out the slate.

Pokedex Entries:
Syclar, the Icicle Pokémon.
Diamond: SYCLAR typically live at the feet of tall, snow-capped mountains. From the day they hatch, they aspire to someday scale the tallest of peaks.

Pearl: SYCLAR celebrate the onset of winter by coming out of their summer burrows and using their small, sharp claws to skate on the fresh river ice.

Platinum: Riding the gusts of blizzards, a swarm of SYCLAR is doubly harmful to even the hardiest of crops; they eat whatever plant matter the cold winds and snow leave untouched.

paintseagull first because of consistency with sprites. Even if it's not the original design.

Apologies, CBMeadow. :C

I'm not as gracious as some of my artist colleagues who vote for others before themselves! Thanks you guys, though I do think you should vote for yourself first :)

others are fine and dandy, but if this doesn't win, I'll cry. One of the best art submissions I've seen in a while. Gorgeous.
