A month has already past since our first community sprite contest. Boy does time fly. Number three away we go.


Premise: You mission should you choose to accept it, is to make a custom site banner. The stuff you choose to add to the banner can range from a wide variety of items, but I do have a couple criteria to keep things consistent:

1. The contents should be 100% sprites. No hand drawn or digital art. Just pure pixel art. You may choose backgrounds/characters from anywhere you'd like.
2. Banner height and width should be 1200x250 in size.
3. The file size should be no larger than 500 kB.
4. Animated backgrounds are welcome, but you can also make it a static image if you'd like.
5. Transparency is permitted, but just be aware that it will be over the starry background of the main page.

The goal of this contest is to get as many banners as possible, so that we can implement a new background every page refresh. Whoever has the best banner will have it displayed as the new site banner for 2 weeks before the other contest submissions are added to the batch. Just to give you time to gloat about your sexy art at the top of the page.


Where do we post it?: Your final submission will be posted in this thread, attached as an image.


Deadline: Your sprite must be submitted by Friday, February 19th at midnight EST.


What happens next?:
Once we reach the deadline, the thread will be locked, and the winner will be picked by voting on the submissions. Voting will be located at the top of the page with a poll, with the names of each of the participants. If you posted a sprite, your name will be automatically added to the list. The voting deadline is midnight the next day, in our case, Saturday, February 20th at midnight EST.

Whether you participated or not, you may vote for anyone you'd like. The criteria for the winner is entirely up to you.

In the event of a tie, a runoff between the tied individuals will take place until a majority vote has been reached.


Yay I won!!! Wait, what's the prize?: If you are voted the winner, congratulations! Your prize for this contest is to to have your banner put up on the main site for all to see, and to pick the theme for the next contest. It can be anything sprite related, within reason of course. Your deadline for picking the topic is Sunday, February 21th at midnight EST

We are very excited to see what you submit. If you have any questions, feel free to post below or send a message over Discord. Off you go!

EDIT: The contest deadline has been extended a week and a day.

This time I've got three entries.

My first is a 3D banner (because all good dimentions come in three)

My second is a Runescape inspired banner, because come on, an SGXP MMORPG? Yes please!

And my third is a Yume Nikki inspired holographic banner.
