With one colour, and one colour only...

Previous Comps:
~ Mar '15, May '15, Aug '15, Dec '15, Mar '16, May '16, Jul '16, Nov '16, Feb '17, Jun '17, Aug '17, Nov '17, Feb '18, Apr '18~

Welcome to the newest Sprite Comp!
This time around, your colour palette is getting the chop! Say goodbye to all those options! Fan of complimentary colours? Sorry, this is no time for compliments. This time... you need to be shady :wellington:
___________________________

♢ RULES ♢

For this comp, you need to make a sprite USING ONLY ONE COLOUR AND ALL ITS SHADES!
Want the character to have a blue jacket? Why not then give them blue hair, a blue shirt, and blue jeans? :basil:
You can only use ONE colour for this! Skin tones however are exempt from this rule (so you don't need to give them green skin if you've picked green as your main colour). I like the idea of working with limitations, and this time I'd love to see how much you can get out of a single colour.

In terms of the words you normally see in art programs, you can only modify the saturation and the brightness of your colour! (A slight shift in hue is OK if necessary, but only a subtle one)
To put the rules in a visual context:
Image

ENTRIES WILL CLOSE MAY 12th!

Good luck, and Happy Spriting! :pearl:

♢ ENTRANTS ♢

Name: Flora Phens
Predominant Colour: Yellow

___________________________

Spoiler: ORIGINAL RULES
  • Each month a new topic will be picked (by the previous month's winner).
  • To enter, just post your entry here.
  • Stick to the theme! (This one's obvious), but make sure you enter something relevant to the theme picked.
  • ONE entry per person. You can submit one character/sprite design and it can be as little as a single frame, or as large as a full set! Up to you
  • NO USING OTHER FAN SPRITES. Even with permission, we want to see your own creative works. Editing official sprites is OK though.
  • Be creative! Simple recolors are not allowed. At least 2 character sprites edited together with a unique color palette counts as an original sprite. Also drawing custom outfits/costumes from scratch for existing sprites is also acceptable.

    Example:
    Acceptable:
    Image Image
    (Custom drawn costume, or a splice of 2 or more official characters, with a unique palette)

    Unacceptable:
    Image Image
    (Basic recolor of official sprite, or minimal editing of official sprites)
  • Please create an entirely new sprite for the competition. If you made a character you think really suits the theme, then you can still edit that sprite into a new one for the competition.
  • Both AA and AAI styled sprites are acceptable, except if the task specifies one or the other.
  • You get 2 weeks to vote after submissions close. This way people have time to look at the entries and vote.
  • Voting will be done after submissions have closed and, as CR has no polling system, all you need to do is post a comment saying your favorite.
  • You can vote for 2 of your favorite choices.
  • You are NOT allowed to vote for yourself.
  • You can use sprites/characters/poses from any RELEASED Ace Attorney game. Try to follow official Court-Records spoiler rules.
  • You can edit your sprite and resubmit it as many times before the cut off date (preferably by editing your original entry post). These can only be minor edits to your existing entry though like fixing some messiness, anatomy, or adding new poses. No brand new characters or 'second-chance' attempts that you've made. Have confidence in the first entry you make!


Spoiler: RULES FOR HOSTS

  • Make sure you pick a topic that hasn't been done before (Unless it's been over a year since it's been done)
  • Make sure you COPY the rules into your posts to notify everyone!
  • Name your topic as "CR Spriting Competition! - Insert genre/topic here"
  • You have creative freedom with selecting topics, provided the entries are in the AA style of sprites. Ideas like a 2 person team collab, or situations like "Twins" where 2 characters are in the 1 sprite are also allowed as potential topics.
  • For clarity's sake, make a quick sprite as an example of what you're expecting from contestants, and post it in the OP)
  • YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF COLLECTING VOTES! Unfortunately, CR doesn't have a polling system, and so votes will have to be through individual comments (to prevent people voting multiple times, we will stick to posting alone)
  • Once the voting is closed, it is up to you announce the results (1st, 2nd and 3rd place), and the winner.
  • You can take as long as you want to start up the next competition thread. If you don't want to be the one running it, you can let 2nd place be in charge.
  • You CANNOT enter if you are hosting, but you can vote.
  • If 2-4 entries receive equal votes, announce those who tied, and hold a tie breaker voting between those. If 5+ and/or every entrant ties, the host can pick the winner.
  • If a tie breaker ends with another tie, all those tied win, and they decide the next host amongst themselves.

For some reason the thread ended up being created 4 times LMAO
This is the current one, the other 3 were my attempts to post it but my browser would stay on the editor and not take me to the "your message was successfully posted page" causing me to refresh and try again.

I've let an admin know, so hopefully it gets cleaned up quickly

Now that's a fascinating theme.

Tempted to just make Kilgrave (AKA The Purple Man) from Jessica Jones and be done with it, but I think I'll do an OC instead.

Is the example sprite Betty from Last Window? XD

But sure, this seems interesting. I wonder how the entries will be this time.

It was just an 80's inspired character I made up XD

For clarification: are non-human (or rather not-so-quite-human) characters aceptable? Or would it be considered cheating? I migh have a handful of ideas for this...

Alright, now THIS is a theme I'm rearing to tackle!!!!

I gotta ask though, I have two vague ideas floating around and I'd like to clear this up. Let's say that like, a shade of black was introduced for the lines on the face. If I didn't introduce any other shades and only used the one shade to color an article of clothing black, that would be against the rules, correct? I'd simply like to be 100% clear

If anyone's curious about what I'm cooking up, either way I go, it's gonna be fanservice-y, trust me :3ccccc

My initial idea was to do one of the assassins from Ghost Trick, but a Google Image search shows that they actually had red ties, so can't do that.

Got another idea though.

If I understand correctly, black is technically a shade of any colour (as is white) So those are OK together with your predominant colour. (I used white for my example's eyes and belt, for example).

I'll try to explain the rules a little clearer though to better clarify things.
EDIT I made a quick visual of what I was intending:

I don't mind slight variations on this, but the rule is on trying to limit colour choice!

Non-human characters are acceptable yeah! Your only limit is to the colour palette! (So if you draw a Parrot, you can't for example make them red, green and blue, Only shades of red, or shades of green etc.)

Just so we're clear, it doesn't have to be the EXACT same hue, right? Just as long as it is, broadly, the same colour?

Try not to bend it too much, but yeah, stick to the one hue and just modify brightness and saturation. (I can understand for shading wanting to bend it a little, but not too much)
With my sprite I stuck to the same hue for all the colours and just modified brightness and saturation. Skin tones are exempt, so you can bend it for that.

Meet Flora Phens! Last name sounds familiar? She is, in fact, the daughter of Melanthios Phens! (Hope you voted for him...) Still don't know her exact age, but she's one the younger side of the spectrum.

Blonde hair was a pain to look at without shading, but I managed :oops: .

EDIT: A profile pic! And animations! Uuuuugh, lotta frames on the talking one

Shit. I already had my palette sorted out (even managed to make the skin a shade of the colour I'm using, albeit barely). Used like 5 hues of the same colour.

Oh well, starting from scratch I guess.

EDIT: I changed it so that everything but the skin was the same hue and somehow it now looks better. :ron:

Thank you for answering my question and I'm so sorry to ask again but I just realized something very important.
Eye color. Are we allowed to introduce white or a light neutral/skintone/whatever for the sake of having a natural looking screla color? This is also gonna be super important to my entry. I'm sorry to ask so many questions but I need to know before I can start work

wait nevermind i just reread your response more carefully nvm :||||

White should be an acceptable shade for any colour choice you pick! As for slight shading for the eyes, either pick a light grey, or a very bright variant of your main colour (I used a very light grey when shading under the eyelashes for my example, and then used 2 tones of red for the pupil, and black for outlines and white for the highlight).
and yeah because it's part of the face you could try a light neutral colouring for it as well to help make it look more natural!

Not sure if it'll help get an idea of what I did, but here's the full sized art of my example It's a bit different because I edited it after when making the sprite XD

Don't worry about asking questions! I'm not too good at explaining myself, so I'll try my best to clear things up! :edgey:

Erm, I decided that I submitted too early I may or may not have been subtly bragging :bellboy:, so I made animations for her (and a profile pic).
