MrDayCee If someone wants to use text in their Armatar submission, it will only be allowed by discretion of admins or mods, but is not allowed in general.

@ jmababa : Let's make this clear with a simple question... "Did you draw that image yourself?" If not, you are plagiarising, which is clearly explained in the thread's OP. Taking an image drawn by someone else (or a screenshot) and then editing this to claim it is your own, is not allowed for a submission.

Ruling on this one: Excluded from entry. And any further submissions with plagiarism will lead to further consequences. Fair warning here. =)

I have a submission, and a few questions regarding it:
Can I post it in other places, not as a contest entry, but just as a random art project?
Can I submit multiple projects at different times? Because I'm working on another for this contest, but haven't finished it yet. I have finished one though.
Is it okay that I used Adobe PSPro painting?

Okay well, I'll post both the original and the shrunk ones.

If you made it, it is yours; you can do whatever you want with it.

Can I submit multiple projects at different times?

Yes.

Is it okay that I used Adobe PSPro painting?

If the images are completely created by you, yes.

@Terminator
It's nice, but it looks like it needs something as a focal point. Maybe a tree or a sunflower or a bird.

Emp is right, it's just well-drawn grass and clouds without something in the middle. Maybe a field of flowers could be added because everyone likes flowers... :3

There is a focal point. Close your eyes, refresh the page, and look at the image again. Your eye will naturally look towards the sun, but then it's pulled away and towards the dark grass, which poses a fantastic contrast. Focal points don't always have to be in the middle, and the focal point doesn't always have to be obvious.

Mine went to the random patch of dark fog.

I agree with Salvidian on the impression of the image, but I also have to add that when you look at the smaller 100x100 version, the whole idea of the (beautifully made btw) image is a little lost and everything becomes a little faded... =)

A focal point is a focal point!
