With a fantastic amount of entries in total, we are leaving a successful Winter Edition behind us and now move on to another round in the ArmorGames Armatar Contest!!

And because you blew us away with so many of your wonderful, creative and talented entries, we decided we want to test your skills to match the latest Quest game that was launched: Sinjid. That's right people! We would like you to surprise us with a submission for the next stealthy theme: NINJA!

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 keep in mind what the final size will be and check often how it looks when it is scaled down.
~ 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. Plagiarism will not only exclude your submission by means of disqualification, it will also exclude you from participation in any future contests AND will have further consequences!
5) Must be fitting to the current contest's theme. If a certain entry is debatable to whatever extend, a mod or admin will give the decisive and final ruling for submission.

Do note that we won't add all submissions at once... all submissions will go up in batches during the entry window and they will eventually disappear from the Armatar roster a week after being uploaded, thus rotating all submissions as we approach the next theme. Keep checking this thread for notifications on the rotation!

The window for this contest will be from 02/20/2013 untill 03/10/2013, so make sure you submit your entries in time to make it on the rotating schedule!

We look forward to seeing your contributions! So, assume your lotus position, completely clear your mind and start searching your inner self... and once you've reached your colorful fountain of creativity, jump into action to grab that pencil and weild it as if you were holding a Katana, slicing your enemy with deadly colorful blows! Make 'em look good! Amaze us!!! =)

(Note: deleted both posts made by GandalftheGrey666 which weren't showing up.)

@ MattEmAngel : I second Ferret: that's some really nice work there! But... could you maybe color the scan? That would be even better! =)

@ weirdlike : As usual, you make some awesome entries there! They look... (O.O) ...dangerous-ly real!!

@ pickpocket : Let me guess... you're a fan... of slenderman...? Nice one! =)

@ GandalftheGrey666 : Looks nice, but... fair critique here... maybe if you would loose those rounded edges and try to center the image. This can be easily done by taking off some from the right and top sides of the image.

@ Bronze : In response to your "Ugh", I say... "Wow!" (O.O)

@ light_chaser : That's one dangerous looking dude there! Double the weapons? Double the hazard when you face him! =)

No, I can't color the scan. I did that entire thing by hand with a dull #2 pencil. When it comes to art, I hate color, and it hates me. Only recently have I experimented with digital color, but other than that...

Paint is evil and unforgiving and when I try to play with it, it attacks me and steals my money.

This contest seems to be more difficult than what I thought. My mind is completely blank at the moment...
Well, here's my first entry: kunais.

Ever time I think "Ninja armatar" I think of a ninja face with glowing eyes (similar to the snowman I did). But Sinjid already has this image:
http://gamemedia.armorgames.com/13549/icn_thmb.png

I doubt I could do better looking picture than that. Also, now that I've seen it anything I try to do on my own will be consciously or subconsciously influenced by that image.

I do have a few ideas though.

Armatar contests are not about skill -- they are about satisfying the theme!
