Hey, everybody! It's time for the new sprite contest to begin!

The winner of this contest will not only get bragging rights for a while, but will also have the choice to either host the next sprite contest or allow someone else to in their place. Now, for the rules.

Rules

1. All sprites must be edited, at my rule
ex: you can't just change like 1 or 2 things
2.The sprite base must be from the MegaMan series
ex: you can use MegaMan Zero sprites but not Zero from SNK etc.
3. THEY MUST BE YOUR OWN!! DONíT STEAL THE WORK OF OTHERS!!
4. All sprites must be made one week before this post or after this post.
5. Sprites must be provided with a URL or posted. I will not search through your site to look for sprites.

Sprite SHEET rule:
They have to be new, it takes a bunch of time to make a sprite sheet, some people have already made some, don't enter those, make new ones.

I have borrowed some rules from SnakeManís contest with a few modifications to make things a little more fair.

Like last time, there are two separate categories:

"The Scratch Spriting Contest"
and "The Remake Spriting Contest".

I do this mainly to separate two very different styles of spriting. Most people have won due to scratch sprites in the past, leaving little competition from recolors and such.

Here are the Rules for each:

SSC:
1. You must make the entire sprite yourself, from scratch. Not just a few alterations. Every single part MUST be your own, nothing borrowed and changed slightly.
2. You are allowed to enter sprite sheets, single pictures or animated gifs. Movie files like avi, or flash animations are not allowed.
3. If you are to make an animated sprite, do NOT make a movie including camera angles and stories. They are supposed to be game sprites.

RSC:
1. A recolor must be made with an effort. I will not accept a sprite where only one color is changed. New or borrowed parts, modified or the unchanged, from other sprites are allowed. Modified parts, such as little details added and
2. You are allowed to enter sprite sheets, single pictures or animated gifs. Movie files like avi, or flash animations are not allowed.
3. If you are to make an animated sprite, do NOT make a movie including camera angles and stories. They are supposed to be game sprites.

You are allowed to enter both genres.
I will start taking entries today (August 28), to enter the competition. Send me a PM telling me which category you want to participate in.

Entries must be in by midnight next Saturday (September 4). Any entries after that will be refused unless itís just a few minutes difference.

The winner will get the Twin Sword Trophy I made for this contest

Okay, to make sure everyone's clear on the details, I'm going to say here and now that a new round will begin each week, starting Sunday, Septemeber 5. Before that, don't work on anything. There will be three rounds in all for both categories.

People planning on entering the Scratch Sprite category, make a note of this: I may allow you more than a week in exchange for one less round, depending on how many people enter it.

In the interest of fairness, I think I'm going to have to say no to that. I don't know what that sprite that was made for you looks like, and I wouldn't know if you actually put any effort in to editing it. It would be best if you just edited your own.

Now, I know the Sprite base has to be a Megaman one, but does the end result have to be MM based?

I don't know if that's ever come up before in previous contests... Hmm... Well, I suppose I could allow it, as long as the base is definetly from one of the MegaMan series.

If anyone has anything against this, PM me. Former sprite contest hosts' opinions are especially welcome on the topic of if the end result should be MM based.

EDIT: I've come to my final decision on this topic. I've already received a PM on this subject and it was rather convincing, although brief. I have decided to rule that the end result of spriting will have to be based on at least one the MegaMan series. However, remember that the characters don't have to have "Man" in their name to be considered based on the MegaMan series.

It would be my RockMaster spritesheet, i've put years into making RockMaster after Pharoh made the original ,and am still changing him today.And i've spent so long working on RockMaster(a bunch of X armors,with some recoloring,and plenty of recolors of that)that i've kinda lost the skill on most other sprites.Pokemon is so simple,it's easy,but this is a MM contest.

You can't use old sheets in this contest. You have to make new ones. One's that have been made over years are especially banned from entry. Everyone else needs to make a note of that as well. Make new sheets, don't post old ones!

Well, the sprite contest has officially begun. It's a pity that more people didn't sign up. Oh well. It looks like there will only be one round for the SSC and two for the RSC. The SSC round will be for three weeks. That means you have a lot of time, but don't waste it. Use it to make something really impressive. As for the RSC, I'm giving you a week and a half. I expect the sprites for the first round by by next Wednesday.

I still wish more people would have signed up...

To Nayus Dante: It's not too late! If you still want to be in the contest, you can. However, I need to know which category. I'm giving you until this Wednesday (not the one the first round of the RSC ends on) to decide. If you don't want to be in the contest, then that's okay as well.

Well, that was fast. I expected a much longer wait before I saw any entries. Oh well. Anyways, there's still a while left before either contest's first (and for the SSC, also the last) round ends. Work hard, everyone!

Have I missunderstood this? I thought we were supposed to post just one peace of work after a 3 week peiod, not post one every week. I have been working with this in mind and was planning on something big this time. It won't be easy submitting something finished by this week. if it is possible, can I post my endresult at the third week as planned?

EDIT: Aftr reading a little more carefully, most of it suggested that the SSC will last just this one week. I'm not sure if this is correct, but it is important that I know this before time runs out.

The SSC is going to last three weeks. However, you may post your sprites at any time. However, I will only accept your first entry. Any afterwards will be ignored. I probably should have mentioned this before. Sorry!
