Greetings, minioerhmmm faithful citizens of ArmorGames!

The time has come to revive a proud, old tradition; that is, the seasonal/holiday armatar contests!

We'll be starting out with Thanksgiving - you can chip in with a thematically appropriate submission even if you don't celebrate it.

GUIDELINES:
1) Must be appropriate Cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Keep it clean!
2) The entry must be square, and at least 100x100 pixels in dimension.
3) Must scale down well to 100x100. So if it is larger, make sure that it will still look good when it is scaled down to armatar size. A few suggestions about this:
- Sometimes simple is better. If you go into a lot of detail, it might not look as great when you scale it down. So just keep in mind what the final size will be.
- If you are able to do vector, that can help with the sharpness of the image. However, since they are so small this probably isn't a big issue.

4) Must be completely original. You cannot use elements from other pieces of artwork, the entire armatar must be 100% created by you.
5) Must be Thanksgiving themed.

Note that we won't necessarily add all submissions... Make 'em look good, guys!

Also note that these will likely go up in batches preceding the actual holiday, and disappear from the armatar roster as we approach the winter theme.

We look forward to seeing your contributions!

DayCee, I have a not-so-happy turkey too, but I can't post it yet due to reasons already stated. I'll get it up soon. Don't worry, the happiness shall end.

No problem pickpocket, we'll see your entry whenever you're ready... I'm sure Zophia will wait for yours to be uploaded! Just make sure it is before closure of the contest...

I read back and saw people asking what programm to use... I used (and always use) good-ol'-Paint! It's a very simple programm with more abilities than most people realise... =)

Here's my entry. Yes, it's a turkey, but I'm not familiarized with this tradition and it was the only thing that came to my mind. It's pretty simple and in black and white, but I'm lazy today.

I've also inverted the colours. Honestly, I prefer this one to the other.

I cannot currently do anything for the contest, but I can offer a suggestion: Perhaps portray the table at which they eat? With both Native Americans and Americans at the table? Just a thought, don't listen to a madman like me.

Gonna hand draw the suggestion above me, when I get time, but for now.
Here's some of my shakiness in MS Paint:

Did have it drawn on a white flag, but looked sloppy(ier)

Love the scarecrow.


The scarecrow might show up better on a darker background.

This is my first try at this, so it might be pretty terrible.

Your right the second is pretty epic.
