Albeit a bit overdue (some managed to squeeze in one last submission!), the "Pirates Edition" of the ArmorGames' Armatar Contest is now officially closed... (N-ARR! Oww...) And even though the amount of submissions was small this time, it was still a big success. Some fantastic artwork was created and entered and those that contributed are entitled to receive their deserved Merit! Simply check in and comment on my profile and claim your reward! Good job!! =)

That being said... we quickly move on to that wonderful, yet always scary, annual event a lot of people from all over the world look forward to! It's coming October 31st... and ArmorGames is taking part in it!!
"When witches go riding, and black cats are seen...
The moon laughs and whispers, âtis near Hallowe'en..."

Ready? Then join the:

It's time to start creating all those skeletons, vampires, goblins, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, grim reapers, witches, ghouls, poltergeists, bats, scarecrows, zombies, trolls and whatnot, oh my... BUT!! Let us go over those rules one more time before you are too frightened to remember what they were!! Oooohh! (O.O)

# 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. (Tip: be careful when you decide to draw twin witches! When you're done, you might not know which witch is which!)
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.

The contest will remain open past the date of Halloween, just to make sure there is enough time for you to enter your artwork! Closing date will be announced whenever it's time...

Right! Time to man up! Shake off your shivers, digg into your darkest memories and start creating all that scarific, spooktacular, boo-tiful, frightastic, AAAAHH!!-wesome artwork and amaze us once more! Just... don't look under the bed when your pencil rolls under there!! There's monsters everywhere... Mhuahahahahaaaa!! (@.@)

BOO!! "Trick or Treat!" Heheheh... =)

You need to upload it to an image site like Photobucket. Then copy a direct link from the image's source, click the "Image" button above the text box here, paste the direct link into the prompt, and click ok.

Alright. Allow me a moment of pride so that I can say that this may be my best armatar batch yet.

First, monster(s?) lurking in the darkness.

And in a twist you probably didn't see coming, a lady dressed up for Halloween.

Uh, the thing where the less-than character popped out happened. Hmm.

I was going to say that yours are great Bronze.

Please try to remember

4) Must be completely original. You cannot use elements from other pieces of artwork, the entire armatar must be 100% created by you.


Doing a similar image search on google:

So it appears the Slendermen is not original (unless this can be proven otherwise).

Darn, it was a cool one too. But Reton8 is right, that's the rules. No cheating.
