Recommended Posts

Once again its time for... the BIWEEKLY BATTLE SPRITE SHOWDOWN!

Current Theme:

Not a Hero... Yet.

-Sprite a trainee class.

Rules

Spoiler

RULES:
1) Only 1 entry per contestant.
2) No voting for your own entry!
3) Entries should be limited to 16 colors.(15 colors+ 1 background color) This is more of a guideline, but good to follow for style and challenge reasons. Colors may be custom or using GBA sprite palletes.
4) No posting previous/old works! This means no edits/recolors of something previously made as well.
-allowing previous/old works would give an unfair advantage to certain entries, two weeks is a good amount of time to work on an entry... how fair would it be to have to go up against something someone spent months or even a year on?
-creating brand new works, encourages creativity and artistic growth and development, kinda what the whole art forums are about... isn't it?

Voting and Winners

Spoiler

VOTING:
Voting will be split into two categories.
-Best in Theme
-Best Overall Battle Sprite
>Voting will run for 3 days
If there are a large amount of entries, Best in Theme will be divided into smaller categories based on whether an entry is custom, splice, or animation.
WINNERS:
(Open to new ideas for this)
Winning placement will be decided by total number of votes across categories.
>The winner gets to choose two potential themes either from a list or of their own imagination.
>The winner and runner ups will vote upon the themes to select one.
>The winner gets two votes in addition to theme selection.
>Second place gets two votes.
>Third place gets one vote.
>Whatever theme wins the winner's votes will be used for the next competition.
Note, votes can be split, if you have two votes they do NOT need to go to the same theme.

I give you...

Mender.png.a670e3fe2d2fdbff94c0dd26dd252dff.png

The Mender Class. This little lass can promote into a Healer or Troubadour. However, she cannot go further the D rank in staves until promotion.

Just my take on the villager class

I showed it wielding every possible weapon.  I think it'd be cool for it to like have access to all of them and then just choose which weapon to continue using when they promote.  If this like, breaks any rules cause I'm like kinda entering multiple sprites, Errant, I'll just take this down and just show the sword wielding one.

If you feel concerned about it, maybe put all the forms in a simple animation?

Anyways, everything is looking very nice so far!

Just a reminder to others hoping to join in, deadline is this Sunday!

Have fun spriting! Hope to see more great entries soon!
