I'd really like to submit an armatar here, but there's too much school happening right now. What is the deadline.

Also, why do we need it to scale nicely to 100 x 100, armartars are 60 x 60 aren't they?

Also (o.0), is have any of the actually armatars been made Adobe Illustrator or the free alternative Inkscape?

The Winter ones or the normal ones? The original ones were made by an artist who left long ago, so few know. :X

I have two more entries to share :)

Snowflakes: second attempt with a bluish background.

This is more of a joke than anything else. It's a Christmas tree cupcake. A workmate made them last year and they were delicious. So I thought they could fit in with the theme, seeing that nobody has drawn a Christmas tree yet.

FYI : The question nichodemus asked is under consideration at the moment. Untill then, please hold off on submitting brushed art. I will make a general notification in this thread about it. =)

@ GhostOfHorror : Ferret and myself will be the ones doing the picking.

Joey's submission is in! Let's hope more game devs will join in the contest! Looking good! =)

@ Bronze : Great work! Allthough I have to admit that I would like to see a little more shading in that yellow snow... =P

@ pickpocket : I had to do some googling to find out who 'Slenderman' was/is, but now that I know... great thinking on your part! Original! =)

@ 70_70_70 : Santa looks better this way, good job! ;)

Oh and... you might have mighty Hercules threaten me with a huge snowball, but... I am much quicker than he is! Soooo... incomiiiiiing!!!

SPLAT! BULLSEYE!!

@ Reton8 : There's no definitve deadline yet... but let's say that all submissions related to Christmas have to be entered before the 25th of December and those related to New Year's before 31st of December. Winter in general will have a much longer period to work with, ok? =)

@ kegaumongo : Again... great work and the cupcake is really original! =)

But speaking of Christmas Trees... I was actually working on one myself and only finished it yesterday! I had the same thought you know... why is it that no one entered a Christmas Tree yet?! So here it is!

Ooooh denneboooom...

I am not entirely sure if the current background is 'too loud' so to speak... maybe I should change it to a single color, but then again... it looks colorful the way it is right now. =)

.................

General note : I am VERY pleased with how you all give eachother constructive feedback to work with and learn from! TWO THUMBS UP for everyone on that! *bows*

Also, why do we need it to scale nicely to 100 x 100, armartars are 60 x 60 aren't they?

Armatars have a few different sizes from 20x20 in comments to 60x60 in the forums to 80x80 on profiles. It's probably just that 100x100 scales easily to all of them.

Since my last question was never answered (sadface), I suppose I'll do a sort of reiteration of it/them, and hopefully it will turn out better than the last did.

So many good ones this time :O

@Kega Love them, cupcake tree looks a bit tilted, but otherwise great.

@DayCee Alright, okay.
Hopefully if I do do one, it'll appeal to you. ;)

I like the tree DayCee. I like the back ground. The only suggestion I would have is maybe make the candles at the end of the branches a little smaller.
