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)

Please see Zerxer's post below this one for any updates.

Update: July 23rd, 1:20am EST

Voting has begun! http://forums.gpx.plus/index.php?showforum=157

These first ten polls, with 21 entries each, and 5 votes allowed per poll, will be up until Tuesday night.

Top 10 per poll will move on.

Submissions are now closed! Voting will begin within 24-48 hours. If your submission was denied, please do your best to get it resubmitted within that timeframe!

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Everyone will have a chance to enter before July 17th. There's nothing special for users who submit first, so please don't rush to submit your entry if you don't have to.

Also, DO NOT post your egg anywhere on the forum or elsewhere in public. Letting others know which entry is yours is a fast way to get disqualified.



Good luck everyone!

Nice! An egg design. Just what I'm great at. J/K. I'll have to see if I can entice my youngest back and have her enter one. Not sure if we have the right internet settings to be so creative, but if anyone in the family can do it.. I'm sure she could! Not sure if I will enter because... yeah. My art is with words. Not pictures. So I'm looking forward to seeing the artistic side of everyone on the site. Even the ones that don't get though the first rounds, in my opinion, are usually quite good. GPX just knows so many Pokemon inspired good artists!

Good luck to you all. I'm looking forward to seeing your entries!

I've made my submission. Hopefully it gets through the first round. This is my first egg design contest, so I'm excited to show off my top-notch MSP sprite editing skills! And I bet the other submissions will be great too.

Went ahead and worked on mine and submitted. I'm pretty proud of it as I'm not the best spriter but I've learned a thing or two from people here. Can't wait to see all the other entries.

Can we get a short description field, please? Just so we can get context on people's entries? I like to see the thought process behind people's creations.

Sounds amazing but I'm not that good at art despite getting a B on my art GCSE.

The eggs designed in the last contest were brilliant and very detailed, my would just be crude noes.gif

I was thinking about this a few months ago and had lots of ideas had it ever come back, but considering how dead the site is now I never thought it'd happen again, and now I can't remember any of my ideas LOL.

Tho I do have an idea or two I thought up of when I saw this thread, so hopefully I can make something swaggy. Art isn't really my forte at all so pray 4 me,

Sounds fun grin.gif and I'm glad to see another egg contest ^^ been a long while since we last had one!

But I'm not quite sure yet what type of egg I'd like to do... especially with there being so many talented people out there haha
if I get around to it, though, I'll do my best to submit one

Some MSP Tips (click to show)


Anyways, I want to put that out there for newbies as someone who have been using MSP for spriting for a good while. It's not the most extravagant, but it's a good tool if you know how to use it.

Can't wait to see everyone's designs. This will be a fun event for sure!
