After a nice turkey and pie dinner... *brp* ...ooopss... (oO) ...gosh, I was so busy eating turkey, the deadline to put up this year's Thanksgiving Edition passed before I even knew it!! Sorry for that everyone!! ...ahem, right... but, we can still look back at two very successfull editions before this new one, which were: the Animals and Halloween edition of the ArmorGames' Armatar Contest!! Once more, a lot of wonderful artwork was created / entered and those that contributed are entitled to receive their deserved Merit! Need to make this happen... *adds it to 'asap' list*

So, the next stop, and this is the last, ultimate, final one (orrr... is it?! Ho Ho Ho...), in the Armatar Contest Editions for 2014... *clears throat* ...dumdummm... sing along everybody!!

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, prepare your Fireworks and stock up on Champagne! This Winter Edition will behold every theme during the Winter Holidays, which means Winter Holidays (duh), Christmas, New Year, Chanoeka, Sinterklaas, you name it! 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 :

ne: All entries must be appropriate. They cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Keep it clean!
The entry must be square and at least 512x512 pixels in dimension.
Your entry must scale down well to 100x100. So if it looks good in its larger form, make sure that it will still look good when it is scaled down to the 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 Armatar 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 a finished piece you don't like or an end result that is showing up blurred when scaled down...
If you are able to do vector, by all means! That can help with the sharpness of the image. However, since they are small in Armatar size, this is probably not a big issue.
All entries 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.
An entry must be completely original. You cannot use entire (or even elements from) pieces of artwork made by someone else, the entire armatar must be 100% created by you! A Moderator can ask you to provide conclusive proof that the entry was created by you entirely and you are obligated to provide this when asked for.

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!

CLOSING DATE OF THIS CONTEST :

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...

WINNING SUBMISSIONS :

Every participant of an official edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest receives a well deserved Merit for submitting one -or more- entries to every separate edition held. This means a maximum of one Merit per participant, per edition.

Alongside this Merit for your participation, we now have a special non-game Quest to award for the winning submissions of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest!! This special Armatar Creator Quest will be bestowed upon the creators of the winning entries that were chosen for every contest held from now on. The winners will receive this Quest to show our appreciation for their outstanding work. Wear this Quest with pride!
Winners will be chosen after the edition is officially closed;
The winning entries are non-debatable, results are final;
The Quest can only be awarded to a user once per year. If a particular user wins several editions during the same year, they will only receive that particular Quest once, as we can not award a particular Quest a second time;
Every year there will be a new Armatar Creator Quest, which will be achievable for every participant;
As a special appreciation for their outstanding work, all the winners and their winning entries of every edition will be placed into the Armatar Creator Quest Winners Hall of Fame! (Official thread link will be implemented when created.)

Allright! Now grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse, and start making your wonderful original works of art! As always... be creative and amaze us! =)

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

Wow guys! It's that magical time of year again! It's been almost an entire year since I first came to Armor Games. What could be better to commemorate that than submitting this cheerful little snowman armatar that I made?

@HecticHermit Man... That... that... was a sad song...

@pickpocket Oh, do please make yet another great entry like you used to!

@themastaplaya Yay! I like it allright! Well done!

@AHomoSapien I will be making the final decision today. It took me some time to work to it, but I've been busy lately with a lot of stuff going on IRL. Sorry!

@LEGEND_beast Yes, of course you're allowed to change your submission! But, ahmm... it's not squared and 512x512 in size... Could you please correct it to the required size for use? Thanx!
Also a tip: if you want to make your entry look as good scaled down as it does in larger form, you might want to use stronger (thicker) outlining for the hand, lightning and santa hat, because it becomes less visible when it is scaled down to Armatar size!

Some presents. I know it's not the right size, but I can't find it at the moment and the computer isn't cooperating either. So I'll repost it later.

Edit: I finally found it. And thanks @MrDayCee =)
