By what do you mean technology? Does this have to incorporate Pokemon sprites, or can it be anthing we desire?

Signomi

There are no judges for this month's contest. Esupio's the only judge.

I'm sure Esupio would agree that an entry relating to the theme 'Technology' doesn't only have to be relative to pokemon spriting.

Ahh, so,for example, like making a Pixel art of a motherboard would be an entry?

Yeah, I may ask a couple of close friends that don't come to PC their opinions but it won't affect my views.

O.o;
Robocop in a pokemon trainer style would work for me, wouldn't score (judging the amount of PC spriter's that just LOVE to edit things) much unless it was totally custom though.

Adam_148's entry breaks the rules twice, first they are recolors which is specified on the rules as not being allowed and second there are two sprites and not one. @Adam - I hope you read this to correct it on time :\

beleive it or not you are a close friend. just you come to PC so *straight away excludes you then*

Nice to see people entering, and wanting to enter

... Adam I do beleive that they are just recolours, and thats against the rules.

Ok about the theme, could star trek be classed as technology "of the future"? It's just that we all know that it's going to happen at one point in the next generation cycle.

Technology is soon becoming like that and we may pretty soon be able to travel further into space.

If so I've got a very very good pixel art to show you all...

if it's technology, sci-fi or not I think you can :x

Esupio
March 3rd, 2006, 10:16 AM
Yeah, it counts, cause that star ship is pretty hi-tech



WHAT IS WITH THE LACK OF SHADING ON THE POKEDEX'S?

its not hard to use shading.

That's...erm.

Anyways...

1. No stealing other Sprite/Image work
Quite frankly, your entry should contain everything that is YOUR work. No use using anything made from other people in your entry. Because frankly, I'd know just by observing it. Your entry would only end up either disqualified or just be given low marks.

This entry isn't Pixel Art, nor is this even the entrant's own work, therefore it's disqualified.

Yer I was wondering about that. Thanks Signomi.

Not only is Carvanha Dragon's entry not pixel art, it doesn't make any sense, and is the most spectacular display of utter ignorance I have ever seen.

EDIT: Signomi got there first.

Your post has been moved into the discussion thread here, as the other thread is only for entries.

Anyways...the judges (or judge, in this case) have already been decided for this contest, so probably not. :/

I want Nusegi's Entry removed becasue it doesn not fit the rules. It has nothing to do with technology at all

Frostfur
March 7th, 2006, 05:16 PM
Nusegi's entry has nothing to do with technology therefore...(did i spell that right?) his entry should be removed
EDIT:
Dang, Coreystranick beat me to em.

Signomi
March 7th, 2006, 11:54 PM
Nusegi's entry has been disqualified due to its lack of relation to the theme.

And can we please NOT post in the Entry thread other than entries? Its for entrants to post their entries only, not for any other posts.

March 9th, 2006, 01:25 PM
Ok, it doesnt matter (i'm sorry i forgot the rules ^^ i hadn't seen that it had to be about technology srry...) can i still enter with a new one? (techno-related i can asure u)

Signomi
March 9th, 2006, 01:30 PM
I'm sure you can, I don't see why not. As long as your entry relates to the theme of the contest then it should be fine with us.

I also have the same question than Budgie Boy, are we allowed to edit our entrys till the judging date? :)

March 11th, 2006, 09:24 AM

I don't want to be evil but since feraligatr_master used this: http://sprites.fireball20xl.com/NSA/Sheets/rayquaza.png as a base for his entry shouldn't he have to give credit to the original author?

Nice save. I was gonna say it actually looked alright. What a loser.

Signomi
March 19th, 2006, 02:02 AM
feraligatr_master's entry has been disqualified, due to his disregarding the first rule of the contest.

Yes, actually somebody did make that Manaphy. So it's disqualified.

Do take note of the contest rules, your entry must be all YOUR OWN work.
