Forums → Art, Music, and Writing → [Closed] Armatar Contest - Theme NINJA!
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!!! =)

@Ferret Turn that frown into a frown... of confusion!
I like your new version better too! I think the form and colors are a lot bolder
MattEmAngel your work is so nice
When is the next round projected to begin? Will it be right after the submission deadline for this round, or will there be some kind of incubation period in between?
I call it Angry Ninja Dwarf
he is mad and spewing foulness of turtles in the martial arts, dwarves are not common ninjas yet they fight well in the dark and have great fighting ability, though clumsy cannot be anymore then a turtle lol
@Ferret and xian37: Thanks, but unfortunately it's too detailed and is not going to look good as an Armatar. I'm asking Krin if he will customize it into his current, much more simplified style. All the shading and detail will not look as refined in its current state, so yeah. It needs thicker lines and less detail, and since Krin has done that four times in a row, I'm hoping he'll help me out. Thanks for the feedback, though.
Hey Matt, if you don't mind me tweaking with your image :P I dunno if this is good for you or not but I decided to post it here since its almost the last day for armatars to be posted, and I won't have time later so here is my tweaked version of your Ninja, if you don't approve of it then I am sorry for messing round with it, and you can ask the admins not to use it.
@Krin is that the mask of shadow that I see?
@Hectichermit: You can post a link by just copy/pasting the URL. you don't need the "Link" button to do it.
Also, you didn't really change it...you just made the background black and shrunk it down. I can't see the sword anymore. Don't take the image and change it. Redraw it. Use it as a template.
I've tried to make another one. I'm not very happy with the result because it could've been better, but I don't have time to remake it.
Awesome work once more!! Really impressed about what has been submitted thus far! But if you want to enter some more, better hurry, because this is the last day!!! Contest closes tomorrow... =)
@kegaumongo I really like the hand-drawn style! Is that with water color?
Here are the final two from me. These were actually requests - Ferret, there's one here for you And the other is MattEmAngel's picture, but just redone in a different style.
Awesome work Krin! Really... really... ... ... wow! (O.O)
Now you got me wondering whether I should ask you to make me one to replace my 3.5 year old Flaming Sun armatar... puzzling... =)
