    Weekly Pixel Art Challenge: #21 - Retype
    Hosted by: Logiedan
    Approved by: Logiedan
    Medal System activated

    Theme: Summer Match 2 - The Relaxing Retype

    This week's task is to take a Pokemon and retype it into either Fire. One of Summer's known element whether it be the heat from the sun, or how it represents joy and happiness. And like the previous week and Summer match, you'll be given two colours that must be used again:


    Cinnabar & Goldenrod

    Keep in mind that you are allowed to use any type of Pokemon AND dual-type Pokemon, but it's fairly obvious that you shouldn't retyping a Charmander into a fire-type. The goal here is to turn a Pokemon into either a pure-fire.

    I expect some scratch work involved, so try your best.

    Omits:
    In some cases and themes there will be omits.
    • No omits
    Main Rules:
    • One entry per person. You may update your entry until the end of the contest.
    • You can't enter if you picked the theme.
    • All work must be made from scratch (unless the current theme states otherwise).
    • No previously made work.
    • You are allowed to post WIPs (Work in Progress) but please specify which image is your final.
    This Week's Rules:
    • Canvas Size: 96x96
    • Palette Requirements: 16 colours max.
    • Transparency: Optional (WILL NOT COUNT AS A COLOUR)
    • Animation: None
    • Other: N/A
    Good luck. If you have any questions & concerns, feel free to send me a PM.

      It's a lot tougher to get the light from the flames right than I thought it was, nevertheless I'm satisfied.

      Edit: made a small adjustment to the flame on his head so it looks slightly more natural.
      Ugh I have no idea what's happening to my internet connection today.

          I didn't think this as through with the colours and all, so I've changed the theme. The goal now is to retype into a Fire-type only.

          Ah, I didn't even notice the theme had changed. XD Luckily I was doing a fire-based retype anyway.

          Anyway, here's Fyrefly (Yanmega). :D

          I tried to make the fires 'insect-like', if that makes any sense, while still sticking to the Pokemon-like fires. It was pretty fun to do, actually. Good luck, everyone. :D

            Gold-plated lava hippo? Well there's something you don't see every day.

            The rules state that we can use up to sixteen colors, and that if we choose to use transparency it won't count toward the color limit; are we allowed to use alpha channel transparency, or would that be considered an addition to the color count?

            Hello all, I'm proud to present my retyped Grovyle & it's in palette limits even though it looks complicated. Yes, no transparency for this one, I'm just lazy to do it, haha.

            Originally i was going to retype Shroomish into a Water-type, then the challenge changed so I tried retyping a Cradily to fire type but it turned out really difficult to make look good. I ended up with this:

              Of course I would pick a horse to re-type. I present...Fire Keldeo.



              15 colors + transparency. The fire mane and tail are from scratch, save for the palette which was taken from BW Rapidash. The rest of the palette is custom and includes the contest colors.

                  I would imagine alpha channels wouldn't be an addition to the colour count.
                  White, Black and Grey all counts as colours. However, the colour of your background whether it be transparent or another colour will not count towards the sprite's colour count.

                    It's a mysterious, superpowerful being found dwelling in the middle of a volcano. (Or it's just a Ferrothorn that caught fire)

                                    What about Chesu's?

                                    The sand replaced with lava was brilliant.

                                    But, I also have to say that all of the entries are very good. It would be hard for me to select a top three with the amount of quality work

                                      I've finally returned to the PC!
                                      It's great to see all of the talented participants in the contests.

                                      Here's a spicy take on Cherubi.

                                          And the winners are...




                                          1st Place - Chesu


                                          I felt Hippowdon would be a very popular pick, but I'm surprised people choosing very unusual picks. Like that Wooper! I think the idea is clean or simple but brilliant, and you executed the sprite very well.


                                          2nd Place - Retribution


                                          The addition of the green hue makes the colours work so well together, especially with the yellow.


                                          3rd Place - Spherical Ice


                                          It was hard to tell where the fire aspect was, or what it is, but I'm assuming it's body is a spherical ball that contains fire or lava. The red and dark brown-ish grey works so well making it look like a molten/lava golem. I like the fire emblem on the front too.

                                          Honourable Mention(s)




                                          -ty-


                                          Such a clever idea.

                                          Good use of fire to put onto its claws and whatnot, but I wish you used Cinnabar a little more. Or even out the amount.

                                          Thanks for participating. See you next week. :D
