Ahhhhh, probably a dumb question, but is there anything we can do if we've accidentally submitted the wrong image or are we up a creek if that happens?

Good luck to all! I look forward to being absolutely blown away again like last time! I'm amazed at the skill that this community has!

I entered the one I made today, as I don't think I can get it much better (I lack both the skills of an artist and the patience to go pixel by pixel for very long). I used Paint, and while it's not the most detailed design, and probably won't make it much past round 1 or 2, I'm fairly happy with how it came out. I think it's an improvement over my submission from the last egg contest (a Hostess chocolate cupcake with the white swirls, because I had no inspiration and could whip it up last minute before the submission deadline), so I'm proud of it no matter how it places.

Plus, the fact that anyone who enters gets some kind of prize was a nice motivation to enter regardless! cat.gif

This! The artistic abilities of some are really astounding, especially from the previous art contests! I can't believe it's been this long since we had an egg design one too oh.gif

The best I've come in an art contest was in the Kite design - I made the rose bush flower thing which I think stopped in round 3 or 4 - I think it was 3rd place idk xp

Hopefully I'll do okay with this providing my design is okay!

Yay another egg contest! I entered the first one in 2010 (I still have my entry in my signature) and had so much fun! I might try again if I have time. c':

Anyone else get a warm feeling when the note on your submission page changed from pending to accepted? cat.gif

Not to sound impatient or anything, but how long does it take for a submission to be accepted? I put in my entry Friday night and it's still pending.

edit: I had to wait a week just to have to submit a new entry? I'm not sure I can get one accepted in time.

DESIGN EGG-STRAVAGANZA


Art by Volmise

Hold on to your hatch! We're eggs-tatic to announce an eggs-tremely eggs-iting event!
Yes, you may have guessed it by now - we'll be holding an egg design contest this month.

Take the egg template, decorate it using some kind of art program (be it software or browser-based) and submit the finished product! After the submissions have closed (on the 17th of July), we'll be holding several rounds of voting and everybody will receive prizes based on how many rounds of voting they made it past.


This is the egg sprite template.
It's the base for the designs.

Rules:
  • Don't distort the shape of the egg too much.
    If it barely looks like an egg any longer or the base of the template isn't very noticeable, your submission is likely to be denied.
  • You must stay within the 30x31 pixel dimensions of the image. Using the blank space around the egg is fine.
  • One entry per user.
  • Make sure the image is saved in .PNG format. Use this site if you're having trouble.
  • Your entry must use no more than 64 colours. You can check by uploading your egg to here.
  • You may not simply (shrink/)paste other already-created images/sprites onto the template.
  • Don't reveal which entry is yours or go around asking for votes. Doing so will lead to disqualification.
  • Though not a rule, making the background of your egg transparent is a good idea. This link could help you with that, if you don't know how to.
You can submit your decorated egg here.
Submissions will close on the 17th of July.

So just give it a try, have fun! All accepted entries will receive a prize.
We're looking forward to your eggs-elent designs and egging cheering you on from the sidelines.
(okay I'll stop using egg jokes now lol)

I couldn't enter it even though it was the right size, file type, AND under 64 colors!

I submitted my egg design on Tuesday and was happy to see when I checked a lil bit ago it was accepted. Honestly my spriting skills are rusty to say the least. I doubt I'll get far, though it's nice to know anyone will get a prize for entering. I remember many years ago I was planning to do an egg design and never did it. Honestly thinking of ideas can be such a pain...I still have some element-bent Pokemon designs I want to work on...namely of the second generation starters.

That being said I look forward to seeing the submissions and thank you to whoever accepted my entry. The worst part is that I normally don't have patience for things but spiriting I've always had patience for...or well more patience. Funnily...I think my color count was like...19. But then I've done spiriting for at least a decade so...it's easier to keep the count low and still look good.

EDIT: Looking over the last few pages, I wanted to add that I use Photoshop myself since I can make the egg transparent as well as keep layers for the edits I'm doing. For example I kept the very original base first, then the base colors I was using, then each additional part I added...and of course a layer to keep track of all the colors I need or may use. I was going to try for an actual Pokemon but decided to leave that for another time and just do something non-Pokemon. Would of been cool to do an egg for the new 7th Gen starters though. TEAM LITTEN!

I'm not entirely happy with the less-than-64-colors version of my egg, but at least I managed to make something that doesn't look completely weird. xD

Got my egg in just there. I had to change my idea a couple times, but I ended up making something I'm happy with happy.gif It wasn't too hard to get it under 64 colours either, although I was a bit surprised that it did go over. I just really hope it gets accepted now! I'll show it (and a couple beta designs) off when it gets knocked out.

I'm surprised at how many people had trouble staying under 64 colors. I can't even fathom why you really need too many either. I find it best to use at most 5 shades of a single color. Still I can't wait to see the eggs people have made.
