A good day I bid all ye artfull, creative and skillfull citizens of ArmorGames! =)

It's fair to say that the revival of the Armatar Contest was a big success, with lots of wonderful and original entries for the Thanksgiving season, but... we're aiming for more!!

So let's continue this old tradition and surpass the first edition with even more entries of your original drawings in the second launch: The 2012 Winter Edition!

Here are the guidelines that help you figure out what is allowed and what is not :

# ARMATAR CONTEST GUIDELINES :

1) All entries must be appropriate. They cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Keep it clean!
2) The entry must be square, and at least 100x100 pixels in dimension.
3) Your entry 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 the actual armatar size. Here are a few suggestions about this :
~ Sometimes keeping it 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 and check often how it looks when it is scaled down.
And remember to save a lot while you are making it! Better to delete 20 -in between made- save files later on, than ending up with something you actually don't like...
~ If you are able to do vector, by all means! 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 fitting to the current contest's theme. If a certain entry is debatable, a mod or admin will give the decisive answer for submission.

Do note that we won't necessarily add all submissions... remember that all submissions will likely go up in batches preceding or during the actual season/holiday, and that they will eventually disappear from the Armatar roster as we approach the next theme.

We look forward to seeing your contributions, so pick up that pencil, start up your art programs, get your brain into overdrive and do your best to make 'em look good! =)

Jeol, what is that? At first I thought it was a penguin, but now it looks like a small dinosaur.

It's my pet dino. It's all black (pink eyes, though), but in that image has a blanket of snow on top :P

I'll be making another one of him most likely, if I get around to it.

I'm guessing the north pole + northern lights.

Nothing in particular, but Palpatine's description works pretty well so lets go with it

I've drawn a few more

Candy canes.

People singing Christmas carols (or that was the intention). I know the colours are a bit depressing, but they're the only ones I had around when I did this.

And finally something that is somehow related with the winter of 2012. The winter starts tomorrow and also there's a small chance that the world ends too. I thought I could draw something to "celebrate" this. So booom!

P.S.: not the best I've done, but I don't have time to remake it. Oh, and it's obviously a joke

I really like the explosion kega, even if it represents the death of all of us.

@70
If you could center the candy canes and remove the merry xmas I think you would have a very good armatar.
