NOVELTY EXTRAORDINAIRE
// Where Inspiring Novelties Are Made \\

Welcome to Novelty Extraordinaire, or Novelty EX! I'd like to thank Foresterra for suggesting such a wonderful idea and Pokii for approving this! A group dedicated to those who like coming up with Novelties of their own and/or if they got the talent, create them through the art of spriting. If you don't know what a 'Novelty' is, here is a direct quote defining such:
QUOTE
Some Novelty Pokémon are made to represent a holiday or time of the year, whilst others are a unique Pokémon found in a video game or from an episode in the Animé. -Commander Wymsy
However, it isn't limited to just that meaning. It can be anything you want, just as long as people can get the gist of it. Note: This is just a spriting fan group inspired by the Novelty Pokemon seen on GPX+. Serves as a place for entertainment, not at all a Novelty nominee bank for the GPX+ staff.

Latest News: [3/19/2010] We have a chatroom now! I've also opened up job positions for a few people: Foresterra, who has been already my advisor to begin with, and recently, zbx, who will be the secretary, managing the member list and making sure the form has been filled correctly, and The Doctor from Galifrea, our current contest host. I'll think of what others can do to help this group more, maybe judges or someone to help me manage the dex, but I'm pretty picky when it comes to choosing for either particularly.

To-Do List: (in no particular order)
  • Novelty Approval
  • Contest Judging
  • December Contest Prizes
  • Artist Credits
  • Nursery Dex
  • Gold Dex

Cool, thanks for having me! Like I said, here's a novelty that I had previously come up with.
I haven't made an egg for it, yet, and the image contains both the regular and shiny versions. This isn't a problem, is it?


"A special kind of Luvdisc that is often given away as a Valentine's Day gift."

Well, mine was made completely custom, rather than editing preexisting sprites. If you're planning to make custom sprites, it helps to have an official sprite on hand for reference, and to use it's colors if you're copying a style and want it to look even more official.

Well, it takes some practice. I find that it helps to sketch out the object using a light shade, then draw the lines over it, tweaking if necessary. Once you have the lines how you want them, decide on a lightsource and color and shade accordingly.

Oh, Corinne, I have a question, if you don't mind answering. I notice that in the rules, you mention not criticizing others' sprites. (Or, at least, the leader won't.) Does this just apply when the criticism is nothing but harsh? Maybe it's because I do so much spriting myself, but I like to comment on other people's sprites and show them way that they can improve. As long as I'm polite about it, is this okay? Just wanna make sure I'm not breaking any rules.

Ah. Yes, yes. I think I should say reword that part. noes.gif You can critique, as long as it's constructive criticism, and like you said, not too harsh as to make the message sound discouraging. More like in a way to encourage them to improve. ^^; Yep... I'm editing that part.

I actually have like... little to no experience with spriting, but I'm a half-decent artist and a quick learner, and I've got a few ideas. I'd love to be part of a group like this where I could get tips and tricks from the more experienced. cat.gif <3
