Sticky Sword/Shield Sprite Project

Hey, this is my first post on the site, and I'm not a part of the project, but I've been lurking here for a while, and I just felt compelled to interject.

Not to be rude but that comes off as arrogance. Don't be pricks and allow everyone to submit their sprites instead of forming an "elite" spriter group.
It's not an "elite spriter group." There were applications. Literally anyone could apply.
I think it's fair to say that this is a necessity - it makes sure people are reliable (i.e. not posting incomplete sprites or sprites without backs and dumping even more work on the rest of the team to pick up their slack) and legitimate (i.e. people who have established credibility and won't just go around posting other artists' work) and that they can be held accountable if they aren't (if they're not doing their part and are causing problems, they can just be removed from the list of approved spriters without some ridiculous blacklist of "only these specific users CAN'T post here").
Meanwhile, I think "arrogance" is someone thinking they're above that process and somehow don't need to go through the same vetting as everyone else - that they should be welcomed with open arms into the project because they're just that good.

In any case, the point of having specific approved spriters and a shared chat is that it also allows them to collaborate and divide the work reasonably, which is obviously not going to happen if everyone is posting their own sprites on their own time. This thread is only seven pages long, and the ones posting sprites without approval didn't even properly read the first post - which is only three short paragraphs, and half of one of them is crossed out. How do you expect to open this to everyone at once without seeing three or four people post competing sprites for the same Pokémon while plenty of others need to be done? Establishing a reservation process, only accepting sprites from specific people who understand that reservation process and making sure those people are all in contact with one another is a perfectly good solution - and when the ones still posting sprites are by definition the ones who don't respect that reservation process, they would obviously be creating the exact problems this system is meant to avoid.

In any case, I really, REALLY don't think it's appropriate to clog up the thread with this discussion any longer. If people still have concerns with or questions about the process, I'm sure they can DM Leparagon (like he said on this very page...), but going out of your way to make the policy dispute a public affair - and insulting the people on the project while you're at it... - isn't something Leparagon should have to be dealing with right now.
Especially when the alternative is, you know, working on the project that you want so badly to speed up.

As a final note, if you still really badly want to contribute the project... I can't say if you'd actually be considered, but I'm sure there would be no harm in just contacting Leparagon and applying properly even though applications have officially ended. Even if you're a bit late to do it, I'm sure showing that you have some understanding of the process, that you can follow the process and that you're interested in collaborating as part of the team would at least give you a better chance than straight-up ignoring the rules and expecting your contributions to be taken seriously. I'm not sure if Leparagon would accept a late application either way, but I'm pretty confident that that's at least a much better way than posting unwanted "help" here.
 
Ye I kinda got carried away, but y'know, people are criticizing our system which proved itself in SM
We have a group of "chosen ones", to divide the work properly, and make sure the chat doesn't become a fucking mess (see XY, where 50 people at a time posted their sprites)
We also don't want people coming by, posting some good sprite by someone else, pretending it's theirs, and then the artist coming by telling us they didn't agree with the person posting it here.
You can still help, there are 2 sprites in SS which were made by external streamers who told us we could go ahead and use it.
Sprite as you want, send MPs to approved spriters telling us we can use it/get inspiration from it if we want, we'll review it thoroughly and maybe after 2-3 sprites, we'll even accept you ^^'
Just make sure the Pokémon isn't "reserved" on the Docs ^^
You know, I got in by Shiny editing Zeraora during SM, without leParagon asking, and I wasn't approved or even registered on Smogon.
When he saw it he asked me if I could use it, and when I registered on Smogon, I was kinda officiously approved xD
And then I did like Oricorio and Mudbray xD
So don't take it like an "elite group" or some shit.
It's like a group task : if you want to come in, prove yourself ^^'
 
Yeah it's definitely not an "elite" group, compared to everyone else on the project I'm an absolute novice who just wanted to help out in any way. I wasn't on Smogon either (although I used the XY and SM sprites all the time) until someone told me to apply after seeing one of my sprites on Reddit. It's honestly a really relaxed environment where the only pressure we have is the time pressure of trying to get as many sprites out there as possible.

Everyone involved is quite relaxed and we're just trying to do the best work we can. All the work the other spriters have done has been really good, maybe less so myself but we're getting closer to the finishing line day by day. I'm working on an early draft or Rillaboom now for example. :D

some of these gmaxes were made before but with a "giant" perspective since some people asked me to do it that way before, but now there are more people saying that it's better to make the perspective match the usual style, so i either edited or remade them

Hmmm. Yeah, looks like a desaturated purple. Without the weird Gmax lighting, it's probably the same shade as Mega Zard Y.
don't take the home renders for gmax at face value. theyre slightly saturated with red cuz of dynamax energy. gmax mons have the same shiny as their regular counterparts. it's more noticeable on some gmax than others because of how red affects their colours

fixed colour count for gmax butterfree
removed "ear" from grapploct's back sprite. it should only have a left ear

here is a download file for all the sprites that are listed in the spreadsheet. all the sprites in the download are optimized, so they're all indexed and have smaller file sizes.
the only things missing are shinies for crown tundra pokemon, a backsprite for regieleki, and the remaining mini gmax sprites. i will update this download again in the future
