We are calling all artists to create an icon for the Discord CAP server! If you are interested in drawing for CAP, having your art be used in a server of 100+ users, and/or are interested in a cash prize, here is your chance!

Here are the rules for creating and submitting the icon:

Requirements
  • The only characters and imagery that may appear on the icon must be resources owned by the CAP Project. This means that canonical Pokemon, 3rd-party Fakemon, etc. cannot appear on the icon.
  • All art must be made by the artist. Using existing images for art (e.g. Main Designs) is considered plagiarism will result in warnings or bans depending on the severity.
  • Collaborative material (such as work made by multiple artists or a vision and art direction by a non-artist and execution by an artist) is not permitted.
  • The icon must be a square image of at least 512x512 in size. However, the artist must submit what the icon would look like shrunk down to 48x48 inside a circular container. Here is a template for the artist to use when checking how the icon looks at thumbnail size:

Posting Frequency
  • In order to ensure that everyone has a reasonable chance to showcase their designs and air their opinions, thread-hogging will be moderated. If a poster wants to add new comments or art, but doesn't want to hog the thread, edit most recent post to add new content.
Posting Rules: Artists
  • Artists can post any work-in-progress (WIP) artwork in order to solicit feedback or to help develop ideas. WIP artwork can be in any medium or stage of completion, but it must be related to an original art design by the poster.
  • Do not post to state your intended design. You may not reserve an idea for yourself.
  • Do not post questions asking for help in making art. For art resources on Smogon, check out Smeargle's Studio.
  • Do not post inconsequential updates to designs. Only if you have made a significant change should you post an update in the thread.
  • Do not bump art or beg for feedback. If no one comments on your design, consider the silence to be your feedback. Also, check out the CAP Discord channel or the CAP PS Room for open real-time discussion on CAP art.
  • Each post should contain no more than one full-sized image, subject to the following rules:
    • The image must be in .jpg, .png, or non-animated .gif format.
    • The image is at most 768 pixels in both width and height.
    • The image has a file size of no larger than 300 kB.
  • Each post should contain at most one thumbnail, subject to the following rules:
    • The image must be in .jpg, .png, or non-animated .gif format.
    • The image is at most 48 pixels in both width and height.
  • If the artist wishes to post additional images, such as the full-resolution icon, the images must be posted as links.
  • The use of hide tags does not circumvent or alter any of the image posting rules.
Posting Rules: Commenters
  • Please DO post constructive feedback for artists.
  • Do not post ideas or images to serve as inspiration for artists or attempt to commission an artist in the thread to render your idea.
  • Do not declare any artwork as "the winner" or make similar comments to that effect. Such posts are insulting to all the other competing artists.
  • Do not repost images from the thread. When quoting a post, remove any images.
Final Submission Post
  • Final submission posts must follow all rules in the Requirements and Posting Rules: Artists section.
  • Artists may only make one final submission post. Artists may update or delete their final submission post, but they cannot create a new one.
  • Artists must use the following template for their final submission post:

[Any additional description here.]
By making a final submission, the artist gives the CAP project permission to use the submitted art for CAP and related projects.

Deadline
  • Artists will have 3 weeks from this post to submit their icon. An extension may be granted upon request.
Deciding results
  • Each legal final submission will be voted on through one Approval Voting poll (if applicable depending on the number of entries) and at most 3 Ranked Pairs polls.
Winner
  • The winning art submission will be used as the icon for the CAP Discord server until at least the end of Gen. VIII.
  • The winning artist will also receive $10 USD to be sent through PayPal.

Edit: Made a final submission! Here's the old comment I had for the WIP:
All right, let's get the ball rolling! Here's a WIP icon of Pajantom (the small, cute one, not the specter). :)
