We reached our goal and this event is now over!! Winners announced soon!

Envato's Most Wanted

We’re putting a $2000 bounty on the heads of Envato’s most wanted file type – Sprite Sheets on GraphicRiver. The first 20 files uploaded (and subsequently approved) to the Graphics > Illustrations category each get $100 (with a maximum of 3 files or $300 per author).

Please Note: All entries need a minimum of 30 sprites, either for one character, multiple characters, or a complete game scene/theme.

Details

In short, it’s a race to see who can quickly submit quality content based on the following criteria:

  • Date Posted: November 16, 2012
  • Prizes: 20 winning files will get a share of $2,000 of prizes! 20 x $100 “cash” prizes are payable ONLY via either PayPal or Moneybookers/Skrill). Not only that, all winners will receive the much-desired Most Wanted Bounty Winner Badge
  • Maximum Prizes per Author: 3
  • Closing Date: December 21, 2012 (12 p.m. Central US Time)
  • Where Files Should be Submitted: Graphics > Illustrations
  • All entries need a minimum of 30 sprites, either for one character, multiple characters, or a complete game scene/theme.
  • Sprite sheets should be uploaded as Photoshop .PSD and optionally but ideally include .PNG & .GIF formats. (This makes sprites easy to be processed and used by anyone.)
  • Authors will need to link to their entries in the forum thread so we can keep track of all entries. Please post a text hyperlink to your item in this thread, e.g. Here’s my entry – [LINK]
  • Winners will be announced 1-2 weeks after the event closes to ensure any late entries are processed. Prizes will be sent out 2-3 weeks AFTER the winners have been announced.

Just to have an overview here, I’ve taken the liberty to monitor this thread and double check the entries (in terms of date of submission first of all), and here you can see the submissions so far, in the order they’ve been posted in this thread.

So, from Left to Right >
