If I was the only judge, Allstories would be 2nd and Lil Chikarita would be 3rd. But I wasn't.

Okay, Cowrie's is pretty cool, so I can understand that entry winning first, but Chikarita's entry ISN'T EVEN PIXEL ART. Seriously, you have GOT to be kidding me. This contest is an atrocity.

Would making your entry second place, Shadowfuse's third and Lil Chikarita's fourth, and therefore ignoring the other judge's ratings, make it not suck?

No, because it would perpetuate the stigma you've already brought upon yourself with your complete lack of planning since the contest's inception, you fickle twit. And what's with your signature? How have you not been chastised incessantly about it? I refuse to believe that behemoth of a signature is within the rules.

Don't be mad that someone else beat you, I'm not saying 2nd entrant's is better, your entry is far beyond the skill of the 2nd place winners, but the fact you are calling people twits for having your entry 3rd is pretty selfish, immature, and ignorant. Once again, you should have been second, but, be glad with what you got. If I offened you, oh well, just what I have to say.

Yay. I got 5th, I didn't even like my entry! So, that's cool beans.

I think I'll go write a manifesto about the poor state of pixel art in this community. I can't seem to get people to understand what it means.

I didn't think that the judges I chose would rate the entries in that way. They didn't seem like they would, though some of their scores weighed heavily on some of the entries.

And my signature is within the rules. It's the max size a signature can be.

Ok, enough and calm yourselves. Let this not erupt into more of an arguement, let alone even refer to anything else other than the results of the contest. Whatever's been decided is final, if you feel there are a few things needed to be discussed then feel free to bring it up, but keep the subject from swaying towards a possible flame war. It shall not be had.

A lot of your entry, most notably the balloons and the nose, seem to have been made with the circle tools or line tools, as well as the curviness of many parts of it, including the hands, the front of the body and the mouth. The head seems to have no shading. For some reason, only the helmet has dithering. The anti-aliasing is done okay, but isn't incredibly noticeable. The shading on the nose is hard to see, and there's only a very small amount of shading on the balloons, aside from the bright parts. The only part of the hair with noticeable shading is the hole in the helmet.

Matter of fact, the only tool I used for my entire entry was the circle tool, and it was used once, for the balloons. Of course, that was out of pure laziness, which seems to be a major weakness for me in my pixel art ventures. Anyway, I'm not sure whether I should feel flattered by the fact that the curviness of the rest of my entry was so well done that you assumed it was done with the curve tool, or annoyed by your lack of knowledge on how to tell the difference. I do agree with you on one thing though, my entry had too many flaws in the way of shading etc and it by no means should have been placed any higher than sixth.

Btw, how on earth did Lil Chikarita's entry get 2nd?! Sure, it's cute, it's colorful, and it's from a well known NES game that many people enjoyed, but did it truely diserve 2nd? I think not. Meh, congrats to the winners and I hope you enjoyed entering... I know I enjoyed doing my little entry. Onward to the June Contest!

[edit] I just noticed G-Man placed 5th... I got 6th, and he got 5th. I love you guys so much. >_<
Considering my entry placed sixth because you guys said it "seemed" to have mostly been done using various tools, and G-Man's entry placed one higher than mine and it's totally apparent that his was done using various tools etc, WHAT IN THE FUDGE!!! You guys suck at judging!!!

Allstories

Haha, the scoring descriptions are ridiculous. He keeps nonsensically pushing his newfound anti-aliasing agenda like suddenly everyone MUST use it, and he talks about how good the anti-aliasing is on pieces WHERE THERE IS NONE. All of the criticisms are retardedly arbitrary nit-picks that have nothing to do with anything. I get marked down because you for some reason don't like dithering. This is the worst contest ever. Is it just me, or did people seem to grasp Pixel Art better when this was a spriting forum? HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? WTF

Hey, I didn't ask for 5th, leave me outta this, I don't care if you're a mod, but, Jesus, grow up. Quit whining and take what you got, do you see Maneachicken getting all pissed 'cause he got last? Seriously, you guys cry about such little things.

Zone, put my entry in 6th so Tendo will be happy and not act like getting 6th place in a sprite contest is a big fricken' deal.

G-Man is Right...

Yay! I got Last and guess what...I don't really Care. Its a bit of Fun, and seriously, if you can't take what the judges give (EVEN IF YOU MAY THINK OR WELL KNOW ITS THE WRONG JUDGEMENT) Then Don't enter. Im Happy that I was a part of the Contest, and its obvious I need to improve...

Oh Well...New Contest now...and its looking good. I've Entered, but im not expecting to win...

Alright. That's enough for now. Whatever's done is done and nothing is likely to be changed about it. Perhaps I was talking to a brick wall with my post above? Complain as much as you want, it doesn't affect your result. And if you wish to dispute about this then perhaps taking it up via PM would be essential.

I am an idiot. I did the averaging wrong. I got the average of me and Houndoom1's scores, then got The Black Hedgehog's scores and averaged them with me and Houndoom1's averages. I just realized that it doesn't work that way. Because of this, all the scores are messed up.

They have been corrected.

My intention was not to get the results changed. What's done is done. I was merely stating how I felt, whether you feel it was mature or not. And what I said about the cricle tool usage in yours and my entries, I feel was 100% truth. I'm sorry you felt I was picking on you in a hateful manner or w/e, but I wasn't.

Look, it's quite simple. When people spend any given amount of time creating PA, they expect their creations to be judged properly. Now, like I already said, "congrats to the winners...Onward to the June Contest!"

Due to my averaging incorrectness, you were in 6th and G-Man in 5th, but the corrected scores have you in 5th and him in 6th.

You people see what Allstories is saying yet? That Duckhunt piece wasn't pixel art, it as a paint drawing, none of it used any pixel art related techniques other than flood fill, the fact none of the judges nor the host planned ahead is blatent, and the fact that some guy is trying to look knowledgable whilst judging is hillarious, Cowrie deserved first, granted, and Allstories deserved second, but look at all the hassle it took to realise this.
