Howdy c: I'm really sorry to bother you, but I was wondering how one becomes an egg spriter c: I'm really interested in being one. I looks like a ton of fun, and I love to draw little pictures of eggs <3 Thank you for taking the time to read this c:
Go to the Suggestions & Requests board on the DC forums and have a look at what projects you can help with there in terms of assitance needed with egg spriting or otherwise come up with a concept of your own and ask others for help. Eventually, those completed dragons might then be picked to be released in-cave :)
Unfortunately those involved with egg sprites do not receive any form of credit when a dragon is released. Thus I wouldn't particularly say there is such a thing as a dedicated "egg spriter" position. Don't let this stop you from doing what Bluesonic suggested above though.
Egg spriters are most definitely credited for their work. I can't recall any specific dragon at the moment that has an artist credit like that but I know there's at least one. Every aspect of the dragon creation process is credited- some are even given credit for being the concept creator of the dragon even if they didn't sprite any part of it such as the case with Walker and the Arsani Dragon.
This may be true but egg sprites do not display credits on their page as TJ said there was not enough effort involved for egg sprite credit. Anyway, art isn't always about credit, if you want to learn then you can.
If this wasn't true we would have egg sprite credit on the dragon pages. I agree that holiday dragons may be excepted to that rule, though I don't think this situation where someone has only done the egg and nothing else has happened.
I think they do, but it depends on how much the person contributed to the egg's sprite in the first place. I just think that in the majority of the cases, the egg is sprited by the same person spriting something else i.e. adult or hatchling. Many dragons in fact have been sprited entirely by one person. But if a person did the egg sprite entirely themselves it's quite possible they would get credit for it, and we certainly credit this so on the Wiki (or at least try to). If a concept worker got credit and a spriter's alt, I don't see why an egg spriter wouldn't get credit if they did the entire egg themselves (as opposed to patching something for someone or etc).
Found the egg sprite credit we have on the Wiki :) You can find the Egg Spriter category here but if you see the Seasonal Dragon's sprite credits, you can find an artist attributed to an egg sprite. I do think though that having just one egg of yours released in-cave might not qualify you to be an official in-cave spriter, much like Walker doesn't have that title sadly, but I think if you do many egg sprite releases you would definitely earn that title.
Yeah, that's what I mean :) I think for credit to be given, you need to have been the only one to work on it from start to finish with no extra input, which is very rare hence the lack of listed egg spriters. And that's very cool that you got to work on an in-cave dragon like that! :D
