After a nice turkey and pie dinner... *brp* ...(oO) ...sorry for that! ...ahem, right... we look back at a very successfull Thanksgiving edition of the ArmorGames' Armatar Contest, once again! Wonderful artwork was created and entered and those that contributed are entitled to receive their deserved Merit!

Yes! It's time to dress for the cold and have those wonderful snowball fights, make your own snowman, decorate the Christmas tree, wonder what Santa's going to bring you, BUT... FIRST, we need you to make some excellent art for the Armatar Contest! The rules never changed! Here they are once more...

# 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.

The contest will remain open untill mid/end January, so there's more than enough time for you to enter your artwork! Closing date will be announced whenever it's time...

Allright! Grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse and start making your wonderful original works of art! Be creative! Amaze us! =)

Right, that's that... now, where's my hot coco? Ah! *blows* ...hmmmm... Yumm! ^^

Odds are it would end up turning into a "draw a heart" contest and we'd have an influx of about 10-15 semi-identical heart armatars floating around the site in various shades of red and pink.

But it just might work...

There is other things about to do. Possible suggestions is Cupid, Flowers and treats. Ban entries with just single hearts if they get too much.

I would love to see the ArmorGames logo(old and/or new) in the shape of a heart.

Either way, it's almost February. Winter is closing fast. It's a bit late for me to draw anything for the contest haha.

Someday I hope to have an Armatar of Matthias that I will never change and will eventually be the only one using it. Maybe a "Self-poitrait" contest? haha.

Another idea for a contest is a Spring related one. Trees, birds. Flowers, Sunshine and stuff.
