What best way to bring back activity than a good old competition? Huh? Isn't that awesome that I randomly discovered an awesome Sprite Comic Tournament that I had never heard about to randomly register into and start fighting people? huh? No?

But seriously the World's Spriters Tournament (or WST for short) is a pretty awesome, and frankly finding sprite artists good enough to make entertaining comics is more and more difficult nowadays, especially with original or edited character. Therefore, although I'm kind of a rookie, I do believe I have a chance to show them all that I can be creative and interesting despite my barely edited characters (Dart and Scalgon. Because yes, this year it's a tag team Tournament).

Aside from that, y'all probably saw my rushed entry comic for it, who was by the way my first sprite comic page... EVER. Just letting you know: I've been working on a lot of things in the shadows, and although I've been barely alive in Deviantart, I was gettin' more and more ideas that I should be able to introduce  this Summer, one of which being my first Sprite Comics, and not only for the WST. I'm actually gonna start my own series. What will it be about? That, dear Watchers, is something that you have yet to discover.

No more long explanations for now, just enjoy the next pages you'll see, as I intend to go as far as possible in the tournament. Many Veterans from previous WSTs are in the big game though, so I don't know if I can actually win, but I sure have a victory plan in mind.

Stay tuned! But for now I must go, as I have lots of things to do... And a heavy shell on my back!

Greetings ladies and Gentlemen! I am Shell Mster Tortwag, a 16 years joyful and creative boy, nice to meet you^^
I live in France, and I entered in a special international school, where many languages meet^^ It's like a crossroad where different culture meet, and it's pretty good :)
I'm improving, learning and getting better at speaking English, which is important considering I want to become a Game Designer. That'll be the first step for a project I'm been thinking since a long time, and that have been developing slowly but surely in my mind. I must improve my creativity as well for that.

I hope I can succeed, because if I do, you might discover a world, no, a brand new universe with one goal: Entertain :D

Hey Tortwag,remember me?
Tortwag Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2015  Student Digital Artist
...I should be much less polite that I'm currently trying to be, especially considering that your activities don't seem to haven't changed one bit.
But I'll give this a shot.

Yes. I do remember you. So, what brings you here? Though you can clearly see I haven't been active in Deviantart in a few months, I assume you came here seeking for some kind of help.
TerenceBird1 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Yeah,I need a battle script.
Tortwag Featured By Owner Edited Nov 13, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Heh. Hahahahahah.
Oh gosh. The funniest part about this is that you're not actually joking. Alright, I know you're probably going to ignore this next part - since it seems to be your answer to anything you find inaproriate to your... "ideas", if we can call them that - but I need to say this out loud, preferably as bluntly as possible, so that you MAY understand what I mean and finally fly out of your little bubble. I'm going to start with a few, actual questions.

How exactly can you look at your content every day and think that what you're is enjoyable in any way?
How the heck can you look at your content every day and think that people give a shit about what you produce? 
How the name of the freakin' Universe can you DARE to ask me for a battle script again, considering that last time I gave you one - which had three fights in it, with me trying to be as original as possible in order to handle them - you essentially cast it away, never used it and ignored all the suggestions I attempted to give you afterwards?

↑ I'm actually waiting for you to seriously consider and answer these questions.

I'm not trying to insult you with these. I invite you to take a honest, critical look at your content, your near-inexistent amount of comments, or other people such as Aeon suggesting you to do something original, NOT RIPPED OF from SMBZ - advice that, by the way, you're still ignoring to this very day - and the fact that you've been doing the same exact thing over and over again for months, which is posting a recolor or some kind of poster with a custom logo, saying something about your "progress", or plan a new saga or major plot point for your EXTREMELY ORIGINAL SERIES that is Dawn of the True Power.
Oh and by the way, you've been using Seelkadoom and Aeon the Hedgehog, the 3-Up Koopa Squad and Merlow. They're not your characters. AT LEAST have the decency to remove them.

Now, look at me. I'm not saying that I'm the pinnacle of originality - my first experiences with sprites are recolors as well, we've all done it at some point - but I've been trying to experiment slowly towards custom-made things and ideas. And I've also been inactive for a WHILE, because life is a thing that eats time for many people, including me. Heck, even as a writer I'm FAR from unlocking my fully grown potential. I have a lot to learn, I'm not even a half-decent sprite artist, but I'm trying. Even in the shadow of my inactivity, I'm trying, and I am improving - slowly, yes, but I am improving.
You, however, are not. One look at your current content proves it - that and the help request you just made.
With that said, you can therefore logically guess that there are no computers in this world that could possibly calculate the amounts of fucks I do not give about your current work, nor the possibility to help it. And that's because you're not trying to evolve.
Grow up. Wake up.
Get away from this pathetic bubble you've thrown yourself in. You CAN learn to make custom sprites, self-made stories and decent animations. But that's only if you cast away these useless SMBZ rip-off content you're constantly trying to make. It's barely attracting anyone, you can SEE IT. Just... make something of your own. When that happens, then maybe I'll be of help again.

But as you are now, I'm sorry, but if you keep behaving like you do, then you're not worth helping. I know I'm being extremely harsh, but that's really the only method I have left to reach you.
