Avast! By the powers! 'ere be guidelines that'll help ye figur'out what be allowed and what 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 is probably not 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.

This'ere brand new contest be runnin' for a fair time now, so aye, we be lookin' at a grand grand booty o'drawin's from all o'ye scurvy dogs! What time 'tis be ye say? Well, that Jolly Roger be wavin' up high from 09/18/2013 'till 10/17/2013 matey!!

So, go! Be gone to yer drawin' tables and start creatin' that thar shiny booty! And if y'won't, well blow me down! We be keelhaulin' ya fo'sure Jack! Now get t'work! Before we make ye walk the plank... YA-HARR!!! =)

Thank you.
I started with the development of some other
armatars as well,but I do not know if I'll have
enough time for everything.

I have started working on one artistic painting,
I am also working on a project castle,plus I have
a real job.I barely find some time to sleep.

That is some really nice stuff just above here, Ivan.

(And indeed and of course, never to the detriment of others. I can't say I keep any sort of eye, just happened to take a look here.)

This is supposed to be a ghost ship, but, at this size, it's quite difficult to see. It looks more like any other ship...

Wow, Bronze and kegaumongo nice armatars!

I think people will know it's a ghost ship, even at smaller sizes. I could tell it was a ghost ship by the sails and colour scheme.

Thank you, Reton

You're probably right. That's why I drew it in black and white. Still, not the result that I was expecting. It's just that I had an image of the ship in my mind, but I've been unable to transfer it to paper :P
