Burger Very official spriting contest

[Image: qNJI3CF.png]

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls,
My Bug-eyed friends, hold onto your pants!

It's the spriting contest!



You, the ambitious sprite artist shall make one sprite that fits the pw scale and is no larger than 64x64, it doesn't matter what it is or what pose it's in - then, for a little bit of fun, write a short paragraph about what the sprite is, where it's from etc etc. No larger than 300 words please. You will mostly be judged on the sprite quality, but quality fluff won't be ignored!

You may get one of 8 rewards for anything of quality to put in your sig or wherever you like for that matter to look swag. Bonus points to anyone to prints it out and puts it on a badge.

The awards include:

- Gold Trophy, for quality spriting and writing.
- Silver Trophy, for less quality spriting and writing.
- Bronze Trophy, for still good but not gold or anything spriting and writing.
- the famed Jacquerel Tyranny Trophy, where he selects his favorite of the bunch for whatever reason he bloody likes!
- A lore trophy, for especially good storyline bb.
- Oscillation medal, for he who oscillates his particles most effectively.
- A heartfelt congratulations from yours truly.
and lastly
- Originality trophy, for you know in the rare case someone decides to not do mwg.


You have two weeks from 3 pm AEST, on the 29th of the 8th to get your sprite and story done, I recommend not leaving it until the last second.

Post your wip's in the thread below and specify whether you want any cc
Whether it's a unit in an army or a loner superhero or an animated sentient tank idc

Good luck and happy spriting!

SPRITE FASTER, COLOUR HARDER, PARTICLE OSCILLATE WITH AGILITY.

I'd say the Oscillation medal is actually the least self explanatory. To me at least.

RE: Very official spriting contest

I spent a lot of time on that cup, what're you trying to say?

It can be anything smaller than 64x64 that would like work on a pw map, Whether it's a unit in an army or a loner superhero or an animated sentient tank idc.
Description of it, as if you were describing a small army in an army thread.

You will be refused an oscillation medal and in turn be robbed of your beloved Particle Oscillating Pioneer status.

RE: Very official spriting contest

Might as well kick this off with my lazy entry WIP to give something for everyone else to gauge themselves by.

[Image: xckelv1.png][Image: 2Cw3v1T.png]
Gyrochaun, Fairy Alliance (cira. 2019, Operation Poltergeist)

Background:

"Long before the fairies of earth were organized into civilized nation states, they lived separate from one another among magical pocket lands scattered across the world known as “barriers”. Most notably, barriers that contained female variants of fairy were never allowed to possess populations of males, and visa-versa for fear of overpopulation, due to the near immortality that their race possessed. This changed when what is now only known as the Northern Barrier, located in Ireland, collapsed during 2017, and its former inhabitants were transferred into Gensokyo, a barrier located in Japan, as a failsafe measure. This marked the first time in over a century that a sustainable populace of both genders made contact, and cultural shock on both sides abounded before they eventually found a common ground and stabilized.

In spite of seemingly integrating themselves into the rest of the supernatural populace, these “leprechauns” were not exactly welcome among the majority of the non-fey, as the native Youkai (other non-human supernatural entities) felt that their presence overcrowded the already land-scarce area and gave the fairies a disproportionate amount of power, while the humans disliked their foreign appearance and mannerisms. This would eventually lead to a three-way series of conflicts between fairies, humanity, and Youkai known together as the Grand War, or “Great Incident”.

The average leprechaun footsoldier remained fairly static in load-out throughout the Grand War. His main armament was either an iron melee weapon or a crudely fashioned tool that fired rockets (lacking the knowledge of conventional firearms) known as a gyrojet, which was inaccurate and clumsy at best, while wearing virtually no protective gear. Soldiers of this description bravely fought and died by the thousands on multiple sides, including the Scarlet Devil Mansion and the Great Fairy Alliance which would eventually split into the multiple fairy countries."

You will realize that fishmen are really difficult, and be slightly more likely to win multiple medals.

K I didn't make a fishman. I made a guy but can't even upload him from my laptop :o

Update later this day:

Scaled 4X for easier viewing

So this is an M-sized bonecracker/miner/worker, possibly a part of my future melee army.

Don't get me wrong, that is one tasty bird-man, but the contest states "pw scale" and if this thing is to scale i'd shit my pants because it's about 4 meters tall

It is indeed pw scale, and about 4.8 meters tall. The sprite itself is 63x64 px, hahaha, just BARELY within the limits. Ragged Tom is one tall bastard.

He trap his soul into magic enchanted couldron.
He has bubbling cauldron on head and skull of dead knight.
All armour is hanging on that couldron.

T-54/55 medium tank was a marvel of Soviet engineering. An idea of tank, adopted for mass-production pushed to its limit: about 100.000 tanks of that type were produced in Soviet Union, China and Eastern Europe. For the time of its arrival at the scene, it was a formidable opponent to any type of its Western counterparts: T-55 featured exceptional mobility, powerful 100-mm main gun, it was reliable, well-suited for harsh conditions and, of course, it was produced in vast numbers, so if you're able to knock out ten of them, there's still several hundreds nearby, ready to avenge their fallen brethen.
Even now some countries still using these tanks in their armies. While lacking modern electronics, fire control systems and somewhat inadequate protection from modern ammunitions, they are still able to deliver powerful blows to unprotected and lightly armored targets, such as IFVs, APCs and such. The T-55 remains as last really mass-produced tank in the history.
