Title: Sprite Jam May 27 - June 04
Post by: Ali on 27 May 2003, 13:13
Okay here goes....

Sprites based upon the theme of:
                          "The reason I couldn't get to work yesterday was..."

You know, like a guy on the phone to his boss with his foot in a shark's mouth. Something like that.

Specifications:
250X200 pixels and 256 colours please.

Is that okay?

These seem to be turning into mini-Background Blitzes lately, except for evil's in this case.  I'm not really complaining, just making an observation :)

Post by: SLaMgRInDeR on 30 May 2003, 08:40
yeh, well it is kinda pretty hard to come up with a single sprite showing a whole reason why they couldnt come to work, and be inventive at the same time.

Post by: TheYak on 31 May 2003, 08:03
I agree, a single sprite is difficult for this one, unless it's an animation.  However, I tried to keep a sprite-y feel to this one:

The reason I couldn't get to work yesterday was...

May has 31 days, So May 27 to May forth is 8 days. It will be over Wednesday... And it is a "sprite" jam so lets see some more sprites...
Title: Re:Sprite Jam May 27 - June 04
Post by: TheYak on 31 May 2003, 22:14
Evil you definately get some kudos for making yours very "spritey."  However, one must note that it matches 95% of the example description for the jam.  ::)

What to you mean Yak?

Well, the example Ali gives in his first post is: "You know, like a guy on the phone to his boss with his foot in a shark's mouth. Something like that. "  The difference between that and yours is that it's a bear trap instead of a shark.  =]  Still a good sprite though, excellent work.

I know the smiley's there.  I just want it to be clear.. I don't think you're cheating.  I think you stuck the closest to the rules.. I just think it's not the most original entry.  ;D  Of course, originality is not always prerequisite.

Screw you, that's awesome.  Excellent job, original and spritey.  A little clean-up and it'd fit right into an adventure game.  Yakspit doesn't seek to win, only to amuse.

Belly button, I didnt have time to shade it though. I best keep my winning hopes up! It could be my first sprite jam I won! :)

Very nicely done, sir.  Good quality, very clean.  Also very spritey.. looks like we have another serious contender in this jam.

Well, let's just hope Ali remembers the significance of the day...  ;D  If not, then I guess we'll hafta start voting starting tomorrow.  Maybe he's the type who doesn't wanna comment until the last day is 100% over.

And I assume mine wasn't over-subtle.  ;)  I later made an animated sprite over the image to demonstrate, but it was just too.. ...  crude (both crudely drawn and the subject matter).  Anyway, if we don't hear from Ali soon, I vote for Evil for his tribal sprite (actually liked the art of Squinky's a lot but liked concept for Evil's more).

Hi, sorry I'm late - I've been really busy.

I hadn't realised I'd have to choose, oh the responsibility...

I think evil's Cannibal has to be the winner. There were plenty of others which just as great, but I think evil was the first (and the second) to make a real effort to create a sprite. Especially because the subject was tricky to do a sprite for - sorry that's my fault.

If I have to pick a runner up I'd choose makri just for the expression on the guy's face.

Please don't hate me everyone else, the other entries were lovely, and I have only just got N3Tgraph's joke.
