My first contest entry. Submitted literally seconds before the contest closed, somewhat unfinished. Learned a lot, namely that my palettes tend to be drab compared to other artists. Also that I can sprite quickly if I want, but not miraculously quickly.

Not yet, anyway. ;)

If they did, they shouldn't have. The issue is that, if people are editing their piece during the voting week, then it essentially means that people get an extra week to work on their challenge piece. It also means that, when voting, people don't know if they're voting on a finished piece of not.

Anyway, if you have changed it since the deadline, could you please change it back. You can edit stuff after the voting week.

Oh, sure. Didn't the winner of last week's edit his during voting week? Saw a quote there "Good edit. It got a vote from me," that's why I assumed it was okay. Might have misread in retrospect.

Would it be possible to disable editing during voting? Or mention something about it on the submission/edit page? There's 9 rules there currently, one more would make a nice, round ten.

Again, sorry for the hassle! Disqualify me if you'd like.

Please do not edit your entry during the voting week.

Eh, it's nobody's fault but my own. I'd still say it's a good example of what I'm capable of nowadays. It also clearly displays my shortcomings, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's a rather honest sprite, I think.

One of my favourites for this challenge!

It's a shame that you didn't have a bit more time to spend on it as I liked the otherworldlyness (my made up word for it) of the sprite.
