[sc]The Heat of Battle - [Complete!]

Alright, Spriters it's time for y'all to show out! Kicking off the first Sprite Challenge of The Spritas is The Heat of Battle. In this Challenge you will be creating the sprites for a very intense scene. The sprites for the scene will be sprites of two characters in the middle of a fight to the death.

The Rules for this Challenge are as follows:

  • The sprites for the two characters must be made by you.
  • If your characters need equipment (weapons, shields, etc) then you do not need to make these; however, if you do make custom equipment state in your post which equipment you made is custom (i.e., which equipment you created) and which equipment is from something/someone else. Additionally, do not be afraid to use non-custom equipment (the only things that must be custom are the character sprites). If you are able to use non-custom equipment creatively, then you could get a better grade.
  • You do not need to make backgrounds and scenery objects (cars, buildings, flowers, etc) and even if you do they will not be considered in the judging process as this Challenge is about two characters in the midst of a fight.
  • Important: The scene created must depict two characters in the middle of a fight. I am specifying this because something like two characters powering up is not them fighting. There does not necessarily need to be any contact between the characters, but it must be clear that they are attacking each other.
  • Important: You are allowed to have more than two characters but they cannot be included in the fight. The fight is between two characters and those two only. As such, any extra characters will not be considered during the judging process.
  • Optional: Give your submission a description about what is going on in the scene that you created.

Clarification:
What we're looking for here are custom or heavily edited sprites. Thank SXR for this illustration that shows what's acceptable and non-acceptable for this contest.

Essentially, don't just take an already existing sprite and add a little hair and change the color. While that would count as a valid submission you will not earn a lot of points that way.

Grading Criteria:
Your submission will graded on the creativity, complexity, and intensity of the sprites that you create. To explain further, two characters simply punching each other is definitely them fighting; however, if it is just a side view of two characters with their fists connected and no emotion in their face, then it will probably be graded less than a close-up shot of two characters punching with their faces filled to the brim with raw anger. Don't just show actions; create a story and then create your sprites that tell that story.

Submission Details:

  • Pretty much any dimension is fine as long as it's not monstrously big or super tiny. We need to be able to clearly see the sprites.
  • You're showing a single scene so the submission should be an image and not a video.
  • Important: Submissions must be posted in this topic. You cannot, for example, say that you posted your submission in the Discord channel or on your DeviantArt page. It must be posted in this thread.

Judges:

  • Rapidfir3Pho3nix (me)
  • SXR123
  • TBA

Prizes:

  • A medal (once I get medals implemented)
  • $50 Digital Gift Card

Due date: May 31st, 2017.


Example Submission by @SXR123

Description: In this fuckin terrible example submission by SXR, Haruhi fights off the sexual urges of a teenage boy in a orange jumpsuit who has relentlessly pursued our heroine to actual Hell and back just to be with her. You can see the raw anger in the majestic swing of the bat as it collides with the now brain-damaged or was he already brain-damaged? who knows. head of what can only be described as the epitome of teenage hormones. Notice how our heroine is even stomping on this boy's foot to ensure that the bat and the boy's head have a proper and enthusiastic introduction. Surely, these two will forever thank our heroine for allowing them the chance to have such an impactful meeting that will flourish into the kind of love that even Disney wishes they could pretend to portray.

unless you meant, first sprite creation challenge in which case, I'm sorry, Ignore me, and carry on.

@Rapidfir3Pho3nix wrote:You're showing a single scene so the submission should be an image and not a video

in this particular case, which does a gif count as?

EDIT: ALSO does it matter if the custom sprite is based on an existing character(example goku but not from any games) or are we talking 100% original from scratch no recolor/edited to the point of not being recognized.

Yes I mean sprite creation challenge lmao

Nah it can be an existing character and the sprite can even be based on a particular game with that character. The sprite itself has to be custom though.

Ok clearly did not explain this challenge well lmfao

This isn't an animation challenge lol all you have to do for this challenge is make sprites and the sprites you're creating are two characters of your choice in the middle of a fight.

So lets say you choose Goku vs Vegeta. And you wanted to show Vegeta dodging one of Goku's kicks. You'd make custom sprites of Goku kicking at Vegeta and Vegeta dodging Goku's kick and that would be your submission lol

Kinda hard to see that cuz it's really small lmfao but unfortunately I dont think that fits. That looks like it's after the All-Out attack sequence. If you want to do that tho just change it where Morgana is focusing on one Persona since this has to be limited to just two characters. You can add extra persona but they won't count but you can still add them and if you do you have to point out which two sprites you're submitting for the contest.

I really wanted to do more but time is tight so.....Time skip ninja Inu vs Sith Inu...

(After years of training, trials and tribulations Ninja Inu has returned from the land of the dead to get revenge on Sith Inu. Sith Inu castle Has been destroyed in this epic battle between counter parts.)



seriously sorry I know this is shit, I promise I'll make it up to you guys.

Both characters Are Edits from A ps1 game called "Panzer Bandit" (ninja Inu sprites was ripped by me)
Ninja Inu scythe is An edit i did from "Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?"

"With the Space Colony ARK's cannon ready to shoot in five minutes and forty-four seconds, Sonic meets up with Shadow. It is at that point that these two hedgehogs, good and bad, duke it out for supremacy, and the fate of earth."

Welp, here's my entry! I think I did a pretty well job on Sonic and Shadow. This really took me a while to make and I think I did a great job on it. but still how the hell am I supposed to beat SXR's entry

A Heated Pokemon Battle

"Two fierce rivals face off in one last showdown before heading to the Pokemon League. After the rest of their party has fainted, each trainer sends out their ace leads of the team. As the battle comes down to the wire, Ninetales unleashes a blazing Flamethrower, with Togekiss just narrowly avoiding it in time. With the battlefield erupting into flames, which side will remain standing in the end?"

I guess I joined just in time to enter into the contest! Togekiss and Ninetales are some of my favorite Pokemon, so I had to utilize them in a format like this. I was torn between including descriptive text such as "Ninetales used flamethrower!" "It missed!" or including trainer mugshots. Ultimately, I decided I could simply type a description up and include the trainers.
