I would like to take the Coloring Ball back to its original rules;
* Colouring Ball: You get a basic sprite outline, and it's yours to colour and improve. Sometimes a theme is given. The thread starter elects a winner, who gets to initiate the next round, and provide the start-sprite.
Specifically, I mean to remove the voting period. It's good for some contests but I feel that in the case of the Coloring Ball that a voting period detracts from the point of the competition.
The point of a voting period would be to declare a more fair winner, rather than the host appointing one. That in itself does have some value but the Coloring ball isn't about who wins, or whether or not that was fair. It would be about making things for it's own sake.
The voting period also removes active competition time, I personally enjoyed always having a Coloring Ball around.
(It would be nice to hear some opinions on this, even though it will dilute the thread somewhat)
So this time, I will select the winner after this Coloring Ball ends on April 22nd.
Without further ado, here's the new Coloring Ball;
