NEW: This is a Celebration CAP, meaning that we are going out of our way to break some rules. We'll be creating a set of three Pokemon this time around, a set of Fire, Water, and Grass-type starters! You can read exactly which rules we'll be breaking here and the logic behind Celebration CAPs here. Give these a read-through to get some context.

Sprite Rules
  • Sprites should be inspired by the winning designs from the Art Poll. It does not need to be an exact rendition of every detail of the designs; "artistic license" is granted to all spriters. However, drastic deviation from the selected art designs is discouraged.
  • All sprites (front and back) can have a maximum size of 96x96.
  • 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
  • No action effects, move effects, environment effects or additional objects can be rendered on or around the Pokemon.
  • Sprites must be in PNG format.
  • Use 8-bit truecolor (aka 24-bit RGB) or less. This does NOT mean 256 color mode.
  • Use transparent backgrounds.
  • All sprites must be scratch sprites that are completely original works by the spriter. Fusions of other sprites or pixel-overs of other artist's lineart (including the main design) are not allowed.
  • Do not alter, fuse, recolor or otherwise modify another spriter's submission unless the original artist explicitly gives permission.
  • All sprites (front and back) must use roughly the same size and pose when compared to each other.

Final Submission Post

All spriters must make a final submission post conforming to the sprite rules (listed above) and the following:
  • The post must have "Final Submission" (in bold) as the first line, with the sprites at the top, and any additional description or comments (if applicable) below them.
  • Final submissions must contain a minimum of 4 sprites - Front Normal, Front Shiny, Back Normal, Back Shiny. If spriters choose to include gender differences (Male and Female versions of each) then 8 sprites must be submitted. Gender differences are NOT required.
  • Only submit ONE PNG that contains all the submitted sprites. Please do not submit separate images for every sprite. One "cutsheet" makes it easier for mods to track submissions and ensure each complete set of sprites stay intact.
  • The final submission image must be hosted on a reliable image hosting service (such as Imgur or puush). Do not use the forum's 'Upload a File' feature. Do not use the 'Attach a photo' tool on messaging apps (e.g. Discord). Do not use Iaza or Ezimba.
  • Only make one (1) final submission post.

All legal final submissions will be included in the sprite poll.

Advice for Spriters

There are 8 possible sprites in a Sprite Set:
  • 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 post a Front Normal sprite first. Once feedback comes in and the poll nears, they make the other sprites. You do not have to make different Male and Female sprites. Typically there are only minute differences between male and female sprites, but some spriters make noticeable changes between genders, which is also fine. Shiny coloring is completely up to the spriter to choose, even if the design artist posted suggested shiny coloring with their art design submission. Please look at your transparent sprites against different colored backgrounds, not just white. In Pokémon Showdown, the sprite will be displayed on multiple background colors in battle.

WIP for Elk so far! My color spaces are mismanaged, so the colors might shift around if I don't pay attention.

Edit (9/28/18): Finished rough draft of front/back sprites!

http://oi68.tinypic.com/rlaq14.jpg

Changes:
  • Made the shape of the antlers more accurate. (Thanks, Birkal!)
  • Made the brown part of the chest more accurate.
  • Gave the hind legs on the front sprite more of an ankle. (Thanks, Snorlax in the way!)
  • Fixed groundline. (Thanks, paintseagull and Zephias!)
Also thanks to Reviloja753 and Warren685 for other feedback!

Edit (9/28/18) (2): Preliminary shiny palettes. :P These are just a few samples! Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

Hey, thanks for your feedback on the shiny, Nyasu! I've decided to open up deciding on a shiny palette to the community in the form of an unofficial poll.

CLICK HERE to fill out the poll!
 
WIP

TIL making sprites is very hard. This is my first attempt ever at pixel art, and wow did I find myself in over my head.

The pose I chose is a shameless rip off of Stantler's sprite from Silver. I wanted to go with something dynamic, lol.



Update: Made the sprite a bit bigger and now working on the backsprite.



Update #2: Arrgh... I actually did make a backsprite but I lost my work (important lesson about saving progress as I go). I probably won't make it again... not sure I have it in me. But luckily Quanyails has an amazing sprite that I would have voted for anyway! :]

the pink one is my favourite, but could deal with a bit of tweaking! >3<
 
Has the color scheme for the shiny been decided?

I have done a recolor of the Render in the modeling project with Magistrum's color scheme, can I post it here?

Modedit: Do not double-post.
