Congrats, Kirby, for winning Challenge#6!
As per his suggestion, this week's challenge is "Sprites". There is one new rule specific to this challenge: NO BASES or DOLLS for your sprites! All sprites are to be made FROM SCRATCH.
Yeah, that's right biznitches, I changed the name of the contest and there's nothing you can do about it. I really really really want to emphasize the purpose of the Challenge. The purpose is not to beat so and so or his dog. The purpose is to expand your own capacity. The reason is to give you a direction to practice in and a reason to draw something you wouldn't normally do. Don't look at the challenge and say "Oh, I can't do that because I'm not good at this, I'll sit this one out." or "Oh, so and so already entered and they're soooooooo good, I could never win!"
I don't really care either way if you do that, but the only one missing out is you. To put forth an analogy in music, say you have a piece that is within your level except for one line that is really really difficult. The better artist is not the one who plays everything else flawlessly and just practices what he already can play, never improving. The better artist is the one who realizes what he can already play and works late into the night practicing the one part that he *can't* play.
Well that's my tirade. Have at it!
Entries that do not follow the rules below will be disqualified, with or without notification.
>Submissions MUST have been made during this week. Submissions will be accepted until sometime next Saturday (7/30) at which point, they will be judged. The winner gets to pick the next weekly challenge!
>Multiple submissions are accepted during the challenge.
>With your submission, YOU MUST post your suggestion for next week! This will expediate the changeover process. So, with your first submission into the contest, just say "My suggestion for the next challenge is: ______", and we can go back and find it if you win. EVEN IF YOU SUBMIT MULTIPLE ENTRIES, only submit one suggestion please!!
***Rules specific to *this* challenge:***
>NO BASES OR DOLLS! This means that, no matter how much you change it, I WILL NOT ACCEPT something that started as a megaman sprite or whatever. If you're unsure of how to make sprites, you can use one as *reference*, but yours should be made on a completely blank canvas.
>The only other rules are the applicable forum rules!
HAVE AT IT!!
