So I'll be honest I chose this set hoping it would be a simple easy start and even *I* am struggling greatly with it, so I've just got to apologise to you guys.

If I where any better I would have done more, but it would have looked sloppy.

Well you have to keep in mind I'm accustomed to splicing contest entries like these:

Some of those look oddly familiar.

Old FEU Splicing Contest entries I had in the directory. Ideally I had wanted to link to the old contests there as an example, but, well, we know why that's not an option.

You're the only Entrant, and so may well win by Default.

Klarth is correct, much to my embarrassment.

Just keep in mind guys that the splicing contest is not really about winning all the time (it is nice to do so sometimes); it's about becoming a better spriter. I'm hardly the best, myself. I have hits and misses, and even in that batch i posted it's pretty obvious which are which.

I'm certain at least you will make an Entry; if you do not, you may find yourself knocked down a Rank or two.

My entry, plus alternate mustachio'd version.

I was pleased to see some of your old entries, Ethan. I remember several of those.

I didn't think your selection seemed unduly hard, but then I have no experience of trying to work with any previous sets. I have an entry in the works, but I've encountered a slight technical hitch. Hopefully it should be ready before the deadline. I'm not entering with any thought of winning though; I just think it's a fun activity.

And with the old Splicing Contest, we had several slow Weeks, but we have two Entries and the Promise of at least one other — I should say I think this a good Start.

Nils, you're going to need to choose one of those to enter.

-=-=-=-=-

I give up. Throwing in the towel. This is an unmitigated disaster of a sprite, but it's all I have and I have failed you all. Hopefully next week will be better.

Obviously the non-mustached one.

Given the amount of time I ended up spending on this (fighting to undo problems I'd caused myself by not fully understanding the graphics programs) this should have been far more inspiring than it actually is, but I'm pleased with how his head turned out, at least.

It's nice to see we have a decent Number of Entries thus far; I can always hope for more, but there are only three Hours or so remaining...
