Spriting duels have been around for a very long time and died many times and have been revived courtesy of Amachi and Fox 3-4 years ago. Sadly it has died between those years. Today I bring you the new and revived Pixel Art Duel thread! You'll be able to setup a spriting duel and have a battle consisting of 1 friend or 2 in a small pixel art competition!
What Is A Spriting Duel?
Basically a spriting duel is a small spriting competition between you and one or two other friends.
2. Stealing sprites will NOT be tolerated and strictly dealt with.
3. Sprites must be made only and specifically for the duel,meaning you can not enter sprites that have already been made in the past.
4. Only two duels can be ongoing.
5. Voting threads will be in the Competitions section of the forum. Yes, these duels will depend on the people.
6. Only three people can be in a duel.
7. The themes will be Pokémon related only unless you and your opponent(s) would like a theme unrelated to Pokémon.
8. Your opponent must accept your duel in under 5 days. After that, the challenger is available to duel someone else.
9. The deadline to send your sprite in is 7 days.
10. Have fun. This is just for fun people, that means have good sportsmanship and good spirit. :D
How to Setup
1. Starting The Duel
In this thread you must post in this thread or send a PM of who you are battling to countryemo. Your opponent(s) must agree to battling you and also post in the thread or send countryemo a PM as well for a confirmation.
Once you send the PM, be patient and wait for the judge to send you the theme and restrictions. If you haven't received the PM please send a visitor message to the judge.
This list is for duelists that are looking for a duel, so if you're looking for one why not choose one of these spriters?
1. No duelists
I'll be removing duelists who do not get a duel within a week, if you'd like to be readded to the list then just post again! Also, if you'd like to be removed from the list, please post and say so or send me a PM/VM!

Hall of Fame
This is the Hall of Fame where the winners of past duels will be listed here along with the thread of the duel, winning sprite and the duelists. #1 - #10:
There's an ongoing duel right now between Chesu and Froslass_Maniac which needs you pixel artists out there and vote for which sprites you would like to win.
The theme our two duelists had to do was a 'Three Sprite Amalgamation'
An amalgamation sprite is when you create a fakemon taking different bits and pieces of existing official Pokémon sprites, fusing them together to create the fakemon's anatomy.
Here are the two sprites our duelists have entered:
Chesu and I will duel first while Ben and Conan will be on the waiting list. Spherical Ice's duel with Froslass is going to be ending soon too.
The reason I decided Chesu and I will duel first is because Conan said he's lacking some free time, so I think Ben and him can wait a few days until Spherical Ice's duel ends which is in three days I believe.
You should choose your own opponent... look through recent posts in the showcase / discussion thread or personal showcase threads that have been updated recently and find someone around your skill level, then send them a PM. :D
