I can't decide between them both, so here's two entries!

Here's the self-proclaimed alien called Mikitaka from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure:

And here's the betelgeusian otaku called Meow from Space Dandy:

My entry: a Japanese myth called Yuki Onna. She's kind of like a snow witch who lures people in and then freezes them to death. Spooky. :beef:

According to original rules of the1st competition (invented by SuperAj3, I think) there can be only one entry per person. But both of your sprites are wonderful. I don't know what to do! Houston, we have a problem!

Yeah. The reason I made that a rule was so that each person has an equal shot at winning. (Or else you could have someone enter 5 times and that'd be unfair).

But I guess if both are under the one entry (So you vote for both together as one choice and not one or the other) and the OP allows it then I think it's ok.
So maybe put both into the one image? Like a pair?

I... Don't see how it makes much sense to put them in a pair. These characters are unrelated. It's a shame but I think it's best to just have the user themselves pick one. Personally, I feel the second one fits the themes of the comp better. Though the JoJo one is great, without context nobody's gonna instantly read him as "kid who thinks he's an alien".

I just feel bad he made 2 entries and can't use both. But yeah if they're unrelated to eachother it's hard to join them together (I was thinking they might've been related somehow)

OK. Vitor, just pick one of your sprites to enter.

OP updated! Though the JoJo one was also great (personally, I love both series).
I added Yuki-Onna too. She's marvelous.

Technically speaking, since people are only allowed to vote for up to two sprites (depending on the amount of entries), a contestant could very well end up shooting themselves in the foot if they entered two or more sprites. If you have two sprites of equal quality, the votes are going to spread out a bit.

Example in a contest with multiple entries (voters allowed one vote):

A: 3 votes
B-1: 2 votes
B-2: 2 votes
C: 0 votes
D: 1 vote

B-1 and B-2 are equal quality, and while user B got a total of 4 votes, his entries only got 2 votes apiece, which isn't enough to beat A's 3 votes.

Compare to a contest with one entry per user (voters allowed one vote):

A: 3 votes
B: 4 votes
C: 0 votes
D: 1 vote

In this scenario, the same users voted for B, but since he only had one sprite, the votes piled up instead of getting spread out.

So, then the whole point stands that it creates an imbalance if you enter more than once. Just instead of disadvantaging the others, it can put the one who entered multiple times in a bad spot too. So yeah, no multiple entries!

This is a witch from Russian folklore. Her name is Baba Yaga, and she likes to eat children that get lost in the woods.

P.S This is the worst sprite I have ever done.

I've heard of the Baba Yaga before!
There used to be a book series called "Tashi" I read as a kid, and I remember that's where I'd heard of her before.

D-d-d-d-double post!

I have opened the voting for this competition. Because last time some users reported issues with using forums poll system, I decided not to bother the mods, but to handle the voting in a traditional way. Best luck to everyone!

Original rules stated that there can be only one entry per person, so Vitor-Leal had to choose between his two works.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a...tie :udgey:
The final match will be played between Vitor-Leal's Meow (left) and Virt's Yuki Onna (right):

If 2-4 entries receive equal votes, announce those who tied, and hold a tie breaker voting between those.


The overtime will last one week. This time, you vote by posting username of your favorite artist (Vitor-Leal or Virt). Don't confuse them ;). You have one vote, of course, and you may not vote for your own entry. The voting period will end no sooner than 8:00 PM CEST (20:00), Sunday 26th.

I'm dying to see the final victor. This will be, like, a clash of titans or something.
