[VOTE] Official Sprite Contest: Heroes From Other Worlds
« on: October 27, 2012, 02:50:39 PM »
Heroes From Other Worlds

First and foremost I would like to say thank you to everyone that entered the contest. We had an amazing seventeen submissions this time around which blows last year's Halloween spriting contest out of the water! So let the voting begin! As always, only one vote per user [please do not use alternate accounts to vote multiple times] and it is generally considered poor form to vote for your own sprite [but we really can't stop you.] Please refer to the judging criteria for guidance in voting, though it should be noted that all the following sprites are considered valid submissions. Feel free to discuss or ask questions in this thread and for those of you just burning to critique the various entries now would be an appropriate time to do so.

Voting officially ends on Halloween night, October 31st, at 11:59pm EST! I will tally up the votes and announce the winner then! Prizes will be determined shortly after!

If you submitted a sprite that is not on this vote list and you do not believe is failed to meet the submission rules, feel free to PM me with questions.

Judging Criteria:
1) Personal Preference: Vote for your favorite character that gets submitted! The old 'Creativity' criteria doesn't really fit when the goal is to replicate something. :P
2) Artistic Ability: The more like the original character/costume, the better. However, make sure to balance this with the visual quality of the sprite. General pixel art ability, design, and palette choice are important here.
3) Valid Submission: There are clear expectations for submission, please try your best to follow them.

All of these entries are winners. Great job everyone, including Celdia, for arranging such event! I'll comment on the sprites soon after the voting closes. For now, let me cast a vote!

Would it be better if we're allowed to select sprite entries equal to the same number of eventual winners from the poll?

Yes, I agree

I actually took some time to think this one out- Not easy when you only have one vote.

Now everyone sit down, relax and have a good damned cup of tea.
Then go out into the forest and see the stars.

Then come back and realize it's pointless to be so worked up over what's meant to be our hobby.
That should be my motto here, holy s

(I'm still not used to anyone else ever referencing Saga Frontier, so seeing Mesarthim is kind of a weird.)

Nice sprites all around, even if that certainly wasn't the either of Hawkeyes that I was expecting. Heh.

Regardless, I've cast my vote already.

Thanks for holding this Celdia.

And the contest is over! Congratulations to Twinees who takes First Place with his Mario and Yoshi sprite! And we have a three-way-tie for Second Place between Taichii, Lijj and Toshiko!!! Since I don't intend to make people choose between them, this means we have even more winners than originally anticipated!

Thank you again to everyone that participated! I will be getting in touch with the winners about their prizes shortly. Keep an eye on your PMs, winners!

(Congratulations to everyone who won. And then to everyone who competed.)

Heh, Mesarthim still got second place...even though I ended up voting for the Morrigan sprite.

Thanks again for holding this Celdia.

I finished the perler for our 1st place winner. Here's a pic for those that would like a peek.
It's as close as I could manage with the limited palette that perler beads come in. Stay tuned if you're curious as to what the 2nd place winners will receive...just as soon as I figure out what to make, I'll post more pictures here.

That perler is great and so is the entree. Pretty interesting turn out.. I am surprised six of you voted for Mesarthim actually. I actually voted for Mario because it was well done. This was a great contest... big thanks to Celdia for putting it together!

I think these are limited to what you see here- mostly 1-framers.
