As you all know, Halloween is coming soon, let's have it as a theme to start this spriting contest !

This contest will be focused on the sprite colorizations. If you don't know how to this, just follow the colorization part of the Guide which is given in the first post. You will have to chose 2 trainer sprites among this trainer list: http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/sprites/trainers-sheet.png
And now here are the Color Palette and the eventual accessories:

The participants will have to save these two files to be able to work on it. They will also have to follow some rules for this contest:

  • Respect the Color Palette that is given
  • The sprite has to fit in 80x80 format
  • The participants can be able to add one or more pokemons in the sprite, it has to respect the size restriction.
  • The pokemon(s) must respect the theme.
  • The participants can be able to not follow the Color Palette by making a colorization of the trainers based on a pokemon. However the pokemon must be in the sprite.
  • You can edit your sprites until we reach to the deadline.
  • Do not steal other people's creations otherwise you will not be able to participate in any other contests.
How to post for this contest ?

The participants will have to post their two sprites in this way:

Sprite #1: img
Sprite #2: img


For the voting part, the participants and the users will have to vote for the best first sprite and the best second sprite, which means there can be more than a winner for this contest.

If you want to participate, just post "In" in this topic, I will modify this message to make a participants list.

Cynthia612 got it. Be aware that it is opened to everyone if you don't know how to make a sprite I suggest you to follow this tutorial it could help you. However be careful to double post you can still delete one of your posts by clicking on "delete" button near the edit one.

Really nice sprites Jellal Fernnandes that's impressive !

Also to the participants: Jellal gave his color palettes but you don't need to give it, if you want, you can but it isn't mandatory I could check the colors myself.

I'm confused as to what the rules are, because the rules state that it is about sprite colorization, yet Jellal has posted with a sprite edit.

Are edits allowed, or even scratch sprites? If so, it would allow me to do much more than what I have been thinking of currently.
