Yes, this is now an open themed round.

Sorry I have not judged this like I said I would. I have been swamped with college and band practice, so I haven't had much time. ElectricArcanine, if you have time tonight, could you judge? If not, I will judge most likely sometime tomorrow.

Judging Time! Sorry for the delay, I had a busy couple of weeks. We didn't get as many entries as I hoped,nevertheless let's get on with judging!
quote Shmexie_x_Deoxys

[A+]-I really love this sprite. It looks like a completely new pokemon, which I assume is the look you were going for since you fused 10+ pokemon. The colours work well together and the pose works nicely. My only complaint is how the shading on the purple knee-things looks about dithered(like GBA shading) with how you've arranged the pixels. Fix that though, and this sprite is perfect!

[B+]-First of all, welcome to neoseeker and this contest! It's always great to see new spriters entering contests. Now, if this is one of the first sprites you ever made you can be proud. At first glance, it works really well, and gives of that new pokemon feel that comes with fusing 10 pokemon. However there are some aspects holding you back from the A-grades. The main thing that bothers me here are that the sprite looks overcrowded. When I say this, I mean that there's too much going on which confuses the eye when you look at the sprite. The best way to fix this would be to get rid off Beautifly's wings, as they create most of this overcrowding problem. Secondly, I think this sprite would work better if you flipped the tail so it faces upwards and the back leg doesn't touch it. The colours you choose(primarily white, pink and green) work well together which is good. One last criticism that I have for this sprite is that the white colour needs to have more of a darker white colour for contrast as you can't really see the dark white unless you zoom in, which makes it look like one shade and consequently flat. Fix these problems, and this sprite could be on it's way to the A-grades.

quote Vast

[A]-This is for the most part, a very good devamp of Snivy. There's only one shade of the main colour and you've contrasted it with white, which is good. However, the one thing stopping this from getting an A+ is how structured the outline is. If you're doing a devamp, the outline should be choppy and dotted with pixels just like the old sprites. Apart from that though, a great devamp.

quote CJames

[A-]-First off, I do like this sprite and it's executed quite well as I can immediately tell that it's a ice/ground type. However, there are two things that bother me and are holding this sprite back from higher grades. Firstly, the complete lack of a mouth really bothers me. A sprite doesn't have to have a tail or patterns but it must have a mouth. Because there's no mouth I get no real facial expression which let's this sprite down. Secondly, the way you've proportioned the feet gives it a bit of an awkward pose, like it's mean to be standing on something but there's nothing there. Lastly, the body is very thin. I think that you should really make it fatter and get rid of someone of the white fur underneath it, as right now the dog looks anorexic. Apart from these problems though, a very well made sprite.
First:Shmexie_x_Deoxys.
Second:Vast.
Third:CJames.
well, that's another round of judging coming to a close. Hopefully this next round can create more entries and spur this contest back into life. As some of you may already have guessed, as soon as this thread hits the 30-page mark the new contest will be in the Black 2 forum, which will hopefully gain us some more activity.
New Theme: Sprite your favorite singer or your favorite band(you don;t have to sprite all the band members if you don't want to, however you can if you want). For example if I was entering this theme(which I probably won't since my trainers are awful) I could sprite all five members of my favorite band, The Wanted or just one member, Nathan Sykes. Any questions or queries, feel free to ask!
Due Date:27Th of October.
Judge:Axelea(or myself if he's not free).

Yay, a B+ and a B- on my first sprites! I'll get around to fixing this one later as I have an exam coming up.

I'll see if I can get something in for the next round, although the bands that I like would be a bit difficult to sprite...
