Let's make sprites for our new design! Remember that these must be in the style of Gen. V.

Design by Slapperfish:

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.
  • 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 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 the same color palette.
  • All sprites (front and back) must use roughly the same size and pose when compared to each other.
Additionally, all sprites (front and back) must be in the same style as Gen. V sprites, which means:
  • Sprites can have a maximum size of 96x96.
  • Sprites must have roughly the same size, perspective, and lighting compared to in-game sprites.
  • Sprites must have a complete, unbroken, distinguishable outline one pixel wide. This outline must be clearly distinguishable from the adjacent interior colors of the sprite. For this thread only, you may omit outlines when spriting in the sand on the design.
  • We recommend that you use no more than 15 unique colors on your sprites' palette. This limit may be broken for complex designs.
  • Sprites must be cel-shaded. Dithering may be used sparingly.
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 2 sprites - Front and Back. If the winning design has supporting art with gender differences, spriters may choose to include those gender differences (Male and Female versions of each), for a total of 4 sprites. Gender differences are NOT required. Spriters cannot create new gender differences.
  • 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 Smogon forums or Imgur). 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.
Advice for Spriters
  • For newcomers, we recommend this tutorial on scratch sprites as an introduction to Pokemon-style sprites.
  • 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.
  • Please make sure that your sprite can be easily palette-swapped to facilitate a shiny palette. In other words, don't reuse one color in two different settings unless they are intended to be the same color.

Sized-up WIP frontsprite! Still needs a bit of work, but I’ll probably get to making the backsprite soon.

Haven't had a lot of time lately to work on a sprite, but I'm definitely going to start putting more time into it.

After checking in on Discord with the people who are spriting, you have one week (168 hours) to make your final submissions! However, please reach out if you need more time!
 
Final Submission



Gotta say, it's definitely a lot easier to sprite something when it's your own design. XD

Special thanks to MrDollSteak and Darquezze for their feedback over on the CAP Discord!
