What do you mean?
Like; you can't get it from 'My Pictures' to here?
If that is the case, you need to upload it to an image hosting site, like photobucket, imageshack, tinypic, ect.

Hey Zoph, would this be deemed, er, acceptable?

It'd be a bit of a stretch. We'll see.

What is the due date?

This is where I'm supposed to know what date Thanksgiving is, right?
GoH's just about nailed it, though. You have until the holiday theme is no longer fitting.

As already mentioned, you need to host it somewhere to link it.
Imgur, flickr, tumblr, deviantART and a ton of other sites (like the ones GoH mentioned) all work for this.

22nd of November.

Last question still stands, though.
Can they be hand drawn?

Thanks. :D

And yeah, if you can scan it in nicely and crop it square, I don't see why not.

Okay, right, I'll give it a go.

Also; in case it doesn't work right, I've downloaded GIMP, but don't really know how to use it.
Anyone have any guildelines?

If I can only enter one, then I guess I'll go with mean corn guy. Btw, it warms my art to see another armatar contest.

Sweet.
Love every one of them.

Oh, and another few questions.
How often will you be putting up submissions?

And; is there a certain criteria one must pass to be submitted?

Delicious pun.
Multiple entries are fine. :)

Was planning on pestering Ferret about adding some every 5-10 or so, depending on entry flow.

And; is there a certain criteria one must pass to be submitted?

We (mainly Ferret and me) must subjectively deem them good enough. No exact criteria, just "looks good".

Not sure about this one - it looks fine as it is, but I worry it won't scale down well due to being pixel art-esque. Haven't checked, though.

Gonna be a day or two before I round the first batch up.

(Btw, forum posts display armatars as 70x70, comments use 25x25 and profiles 80x80.)
