[Pretend like there is an awesome logo here specifically made for this contest]


So, since Valentines Day was just a few weeks ago... Two established characters (either canon or from a fangame) have come together, fallen in love, and made a child. You are to draw that child, either as a kid or all grown up.

The only catch is that the parents must not be people who have met at any point in the series. Everybody and their best friend has already imagined what NickXMaya or NickXIris or NickXEdgeworth would look like. We’re not going to see the products of those pairings in this contest. This is the time for crack pairings to shine – any two characters who have no reason even knowing the other exists. MayaXKay, for instance, would be allowed. Or my personal favorite pairing, ShoeXMissile...

VOTING HAS STARTED!!!

THE CONTESTANTS:

Cassandra Grimoire, by Zoo977
Parents: Max Galactica and Zak Gramarye
Image
Image


Mark Meekins, by Darth Wiader
Parents: Mike Meekins and Lotta Hart
ImageImage


Mo-Fa Lang, by SuperAj3
Parents: Lamiroir and Shi Long Lang
ImageImage


Also, as a little motivator, I’m going to be adding something to this competition: A prize, and one more than just choosing the next topic. If you win, I will make a single-pose sprite for you. Anything you want (provided it fits the rules for requests on my own sprite page - namely nothing ultra violent and no porn).


  • you can provide your character's backstory (in fact, it is recommended)
  • frankenspriting and making sprites from scratch is allowed
  • we vote to decide the winner
  • When posting your entry you must add a mugshot (front or bench is allowed but front is prefered) it's for the voting process.

The deadline: The deadline will be on March 25th 2018.
The date will be pushed back if any body needs more time or it's too fast a deadline.

All 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,
Jan '18
~

THE ENTRIES:




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 "Monthly 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+ to/or every entry 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.

While that would be beautiful, it is actually a plot point in the game that Grossberg knows who Redd White is (even if he hasn't actually met him in person... I can't remember if he ever says that), so that would not qualify for this contest.

ACtually since I'm here and drafting my entry I should ask in advance. This needs to be a ridiculous concept right? But like, are you cool if there is no way these two particular parents could create a child but they have one anyways? I just wanna be totally sure here

Just noticed something with the past comp links. Last comp should've been "Dec '17" but it's there twice as November and January XD (That was my fault I said the wrong month to Heroman last comp)

Well, I have ShoeXMissile up there as an example of what is okay, so I assume that whatever you're thinking of can't be crazier than that. Whatever it is, go for it.

Name: Cassandra Grimoire
Pun: Cassandra is a figure in Greek mythology who has the ability to see the future. Grimoire is a term for a book of magic spells, and has its etymology rooted in 'gramarye,' thus referencing her parents.
Age: 6
Occupation: Fortune telling 'bubblemancer' / Elementary school student

Parents: Maximillion Galactica and Zak Gramarye

How they came to perform together may forever be a mystery, but what is known the sheer immediate attraciton between these two. Their magical powers, their love for cards, an eye-searing amount of pink. It was a match made in heaven. Or in this case, backstage at a magic show. And as everyone knows, when a man and another man love each other very much, they make a lot of magic. So much that they managed to spawn a child out of nothing. Ashamed of accidentally a whole child, they gave her a fake name and sent her to an orphanage, to start her life away from the countless peering eyes and horrid scandals of the celebrity world.

But the Gramarye name is inexorably tied to the Wright name, and Trucy took interest in this child's seemingly real magic abilities. And when watching the girl perform at her school, she came to a shocking fortune that would come to pass, and suspicion would fall on the pair for the murder of her gradeschool teacher, miss Kimber Garten. So just how was her fortune manipulated, and who was really responsible for Kimber's death?

Image

I wanted her design to invoke romani fortune teller stereotypes without being offensive. Her color palette was made to be similar shades that still looked cluttered together, hence all the pink. Max's thing is the hearts card suit and Zak's is the club, so I thought Cassandra's should be the spade, since that's sort of a mesh of the two symbols. Her hair was designed so when viewed from behind, like her witness stand sprite, her hair would look like an upside down spade symbol.

I didn't just want another generic magician, so I went with the magic of Max with the seer powers of Zak, like how Gramarye's can use the percieve ability. The natural combination of magic and hyper-competent vision is foresight. Originally, she was going to be carrying a crystal ball, but I wanted something more kiddy, more silly. The end idea was she would be a 'bubblemancer,' and would use her magic (bubble) wand to blow bubbles and read the future in the irridescing bubble fluids.

Just a reminder that the listed due date is in 5 days. The first one came in within a week, so it's definitely possible to make something in that time!

Although I figure we're more likely gonna have to extend the due date once again...

So, after retiring from prayer, Bikini moved back to Japanifornia and ended up meeting a charming(?) man at a local french cafe.
They wed, had a child, and Victor and Bikini gave birth to their first child,

I'm fairly certain he took an image straight off of Google and posted it here, so let's go with "no."

(He did say he's working on a real one, in any case.)

Meet Mark Meekins, a terrible Cody-based frankensprite, that was supposed to represent an offspring of Lotta and Mike Meekins (I failed, in my own eyes). He wants to combine the career paths of both his parents (a journalist and a policeman) and aims to be an investigative reporter! Anyway, I just throw it here to liven this competition up.

I'm gonna hold off on the voting until, let's say... the end of the month. If you are currently working on a sprite, please finish up quickly. We will begin voting in April.

So after losing her memories, Lamiroir was exploring Borginia, when she happened upon a drug bust being carried out at a building near her usual performance venue.
Ever since then she had been head over heels for the leader of the investigation, Shi Long Lang.

In sum, they rendezvoused at an undisclosed location, and thus, Mo-Fa Lang was born!
using their ultra-super powers... Lamiroir, Lang, and child, dedicated their lives to fighting crime, and the forces of evil!

Just realised this, but shouldn't the entries be added to the OP, along with the updated deadline? It feels a bit lacking currently.
