The Holiday Season is over and we're looking back at a fantastic Winter Edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest! A lot of original artwork was created and entered and those that contributed are entitled to receive their deserved Merit!

Remember to check in and comment on my profile and claim your well deserved reward!! =)

Now that the 'most wonderful time of the year' is over, Santa's gone back to the Northpole, the Christmas tree is put back in the attic and the snowman (probably) melted, we're coming up to an annual day of love and affection!

Ahuh... ahuh... that's right! Sooo... who's YOUR secret sweetheart?! Got anyone particular in mind?! Did you buy him/her a nice Valentine's present?! Maybe some flowers, chocolate or a beautiful card?! Yes?! Or... perhaps you're feeling creative and you're making your very own custom special delux Valentine's Card!! BUT WAIT!! First we need you to show an effort and submit some wonderful creations of art for our contest! *whispers* So you can practice on your drawing skills and amaze him/her! *winks* Well, the rules are still the same! Here they are...

# 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 a few days after Valentine's day, so there's plenty of time for you to enter your artwork!

Are you ready? Then grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse and start making your wonderful original works of art! As always, be creative! Amaze us! =)

Oh shute! (oO) I still don't have any presents!! Right, I'm off to the store!! B-BYE!! *runs*

Doesn't that require a scanner?

I think somebody requested something like this a while ago. Again, drawing the human body is not one of my strenghts. However, thanks for the idea ^^

Alright everybody! Several people have suggested that enter this contest, so here is my entry. It's dimensions are 99x99 pixels so it should be the right size.

Ok, I was just messing around on Photoshop and made this.

And, believe it or not the next one does have to do with love too. It's from the Flatt and Scruggs song by this title. "You're not a Drop in the Bucket.

I've spent a total of about 7 hours over the last 2 weeks making this one. After colouring each individual 250000 pixels, I don't think I'll be using Paint again for awhile!

Paint only goes so far, so with a better program (and more art talent) it could've been better. I ended up with 2 that I couldn't decide between. Which do you like better?

Or this one?

Download GIMP. The airbrushes alone can make any image look like real art.
