Design contest for everyone!


In honour of Darth Krytie being a super great amazeballs Admin (lol), we have decided to honour her loveliness with her very own novelty!
Here's where y'all come in! One of you gets to design it!

Contest information:
  • Design a novelty based on one of three Pokemon: Altaria, Psyduck, Vanilluxe (just one, no evolutions).
  • You create the design. You create the name.
  • Optional: The Pokédex description.
  • Optional: Any other details on the Pokémon (for example: stats/HP/shiny colors/etc. These are subject to change, however).
  • Send your entry as a PM to PokeNOM NOM NOM, using the form below.
  • Please don't share what you have designed until after the winner has been announced (halfway through September).
  • PokeNOM NOM NOM will create a novelty based on the winner's design.
  • All submissions must be received by reset on the 31st of August.
---

Questions you may have:

'I can't art. Should I even bother trying?'

Answer:
Yes! Everyone can enter. It's not about whether you art really well.
Did you see the pencil Krytie drew? It's about the concept.

~

'Are there any restrictions?'

Answer:
Yes, you must base the novelty on one of the three Pokemon: Altaria, Psyduck, Vanilluxe.
They must be female. Nothing stolen from other fandoms (for example: you sadly can't stick a lightsaber in Psyduck's hand and call it a day).

~

'Which medium should I use to create my novelty concept?'

Answer:
You can draw in any drawing program, or take a photo of an art you drew by hand. As long as the design concept is clear. Also, please use the provided form when sending in your entry (you can find the form below).

~

'So, I designed a novelty and entered. Now what?'

Answer:
Starting on the 3rd of September, we'll be going through a voting stage to determine the winner:
  • Depending on the number of entries, one or more voting threads will be made for you guys to vote on (if there are a lot of entries, we might have more than one round of voting). We're looking for the top 5.
  • Out of the remaining entries, staff will also select 5 entries.
  • Out of these 10 entries, Darth Krytie will select the one she likes best. That will be the winner.
Just to be clear: voting is anonymous. Promoting your own design will be grounds for disqualification.

~

'Are there any prizes to win?'
Yes! Everyone who enters in good faith will get a participation prize ('good faith' means you actually have a novelty concept and you don't just submit an added black dot to the existing Pokemon, call the novelty 'asdgagfad' and call it a day).

The top 10 (5 selected by users, 5 selected by staff) will receive another prize.
The winner will also get a guaranteed shiny of their designed novelty.

~

'How long do I have?'

Answer:
You have two and a half weeks. All submissions must be received by reset on the 31st of August. No late submissions will be accepted.

~

Most importantly, have fun!
We can't wait to see what you guys will come up with!


---

Entry form

Send a PM to PokeNOM NOM NOM with the form below to enter.
She will collect all entries.
  • Username:
  • Pokémon's name:
  • Pokémon's Pokédex description (optional):
  • Any other details on the Pokémon (optional):
  • Pokémon design: -link to image here-
(Don't know how to upload your entry? Imgur is an excellent site for it.)

---

This thread may be used to ask questions and talk about the contest, but it's NOT a place to share your concepts.
Of course, you're welcome to share all of it AFTER the winner is announced. Let's keep this a fun, fair event!

With all due respect, I would like more parameters.

What pixel size do you desire?

I have no idea what size to make my submission.

I or others may think of other questions.

Happy birthday, Darth Krytie!

I think I'll take a shot at this. Better dust off the ol' spriting techniques.

How interesting! Looks like I was right about there being some kind of design contest, to an extent.

Though I'd love to participate in this, I honestly don't have any ideas...was never good at the whole fakemon thing.

I've just about given up on my Pokemon White storylocke because, for once in my life, I have no idea how to fix the flaws I perceive within it, but you can read what's been posted if you want:

Is it okey to use existing sprites as the base for the novelty (from actual games) or should it be fully selfmade?

Nom and DK are running this, but I think I can answer this question from what I understand of it:

This contest is simply for designing the concept, the actual sprite will be created by PokeNOM, so there's no size limit for your submission.

It should certainly be a concept that can be sprited to whatever the size of the current largest Pokémon is, but there's no pixel size requirements for your submission. Someone might draw a large image on a piece of paper and take a photo of it, for instance. That's fine!

Using the existing sprites as the base is fine! Consider Zergoose and Bidofo.

Thank you, O Admin!

I made something, thinking details now.

I'm just so forgetful and impatient, if I don't submit it today I'll forget and get pissed at myself.

Same here... I'll probably see if there are any Vanilluxe sprites I can download off of the internet and then just rework that.

Nice! I'm just brainstorming...and wondering if my idea is good enough lol. I guess there's only one way to find out!

Hey, I'm just doing a mouse drawing in Photoshop. I'm too lazy to even hunt down my tablet pen. Haha nope this is not a drawing I can do with just a mouse.

That's a pretty cool idea
I'm looking forward to see what y'all cook up
I don't think something like that ever happened here before
As a fan of fresh and exciting ideas I'm glad to see this sort of stuff going on

First of all, happy birthday!

I have a couple of questions about the contest - are there any restrictions on how the novelty can be obtained? For example, could it evolve from a regular Pokemon (like Porygon-T)? Also, can it have multiple forms?

Yes, there are some restrictions. It must be a Pokémon based on one of these three Pokémon: Altaria, Psyduck or Vanilluxe.
You can design one Pokémon (no evolutions).

Does this answer your question?

EDIT: Yes, I suppose it could be a form change of Altaria, Psyduck or Vanilluxe.
It would still have to be clearly based on one of these three, though.

I understand that, but I wanted to make sure that - say, if it's Altaria - it evolves from a regular Swablu (or is formchanged from an Altaria like the Cherrim novelties) rather than hatching straight from the egg.

Yes, that's fine. happy.gif
I re-read your question and it became clear to me what you meant, so I edited my previous answer.
Have fun designing and feel free to ask if anything's unclear!
