    Bored so I thought I would make this small contest. The goal is for people to enter with sprite sigs made either with the ones posted here or somewhere else.

    Rules:
    1. No stealing sigs
    2. No posting multiple entries (edit post)
    3. Signature must include a sprite (not the drink)
    4. Maintain a signature sig
    5. Animation is allowed
    6. Text is permitted on sigs
    7. Feel free to post your vote and reasons

    Contest Duration:

    Prizes:
    Winner - 500 points
    Runner up(s) - 100 points

    Pre-cut selected sprites by me (w/ transparency):
    Chun-li
    Gambit
    Hiryu

    Will either be put into a public vote or winner and runner-up(s) chosen by me.

    Having trouble accessing the transparent renders? Click the link, zoom into the picture, right click and "save image as...".

    Those aren't very good renders. Barely any good movement.

    That's not really considered a sprite sig. It's a sig using a character portrait :/

    Sincerely it depends what u understand by the word sprite
    Sprite is usually a drawing on a small scale.
    What makes a sprite a sprite ...
    wiki: "two-dimensional image or animation that is integrated into a larger scene"

    For example I can use a signature as a player sprite in a game, and the sig will become a sprite for the respective game.

    I shouldn't have to explain what a sprite is in terms of making these sprite sigs. Either look at the examples or pre-selected character sprites for an understanding of what is expected as a valid submission.

    Lol I just said a sprite can be considerate any image as long as it can be used in a game.
    Of course u can not use a sprite (character for example) of resolution 1024/768 in a game because it will be processed pretty hard by the PC.
    The simplest explanation of a sprite is this : A 2d image(static or animated) that can be integrated in a larger scene.
    If u do not believe me I will prove to u that a 2d games can be made with a Medium Quality too.
    Sprites are not just 2d LQ pixelated images.

    The so called "render" that u ppl usually use can be considerate a sprite, because u can integrate the respective "render" in to a larger scene(for example game).

    If u want I will prove my theory with a mini game :3, but u will have to download and install it.

    @haxor123 there can be portrait sprites too.

    Fine -.-
    Just because he already put the effort into this and it wasn't "clearly specified", I'll consider this a valid submission. But this is the only exception, all the rest must be proper sprites like the examples.
