It's been quiet for a short while since we've all had those incredibly, wonderful, romantic encounters during the Valentines Day Edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest! Is it fair to say we've had our share of hearts in there?! Heheh... All of the creative participants delivered a wonderful dosage of love with their fantastic artwork! Awesome job everyone! As always!

Well, like I said, it has been quiet for a short while and it's a short one this time, but we launch a quick Armatar Contest that will have the bunnies race to enter their submissions before the upcoming hunt for eggs! That's right... it's time for the:

Better start using your creative minds and have them turn into overdrive to deliver those eggs... errr... arts! Like I stated, it's a short run for you bunnies, but who's to say it won't be a glorious one?! Make sure to check the rules for the contest if you wonder about anything and start your run!

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 little over a week after Easter, so there's more than enough time for you to enter your artwork!

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.)

Grab your pencils... Ready?
Lay out your sheets of paper... on your marks?!
Work your mind... set?
Aaaaaannnndddd.... GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my god! We're off! It's promising to be a great race! Everyone is going for the prize!!! Pencils are drawing! Mouses are swirling! Brains are working overtime and get so hot you can fry an egg on it!!! AAAAHHHHH!!!!
Sorry...
Heat of the moment...
*cough cough*

I'll be painting some Easter eggs untill you finish your work... till then, have fun! As always, be creative and amaze us! =)

I was born on Good Friday, on April 21st, 2000. Easter time is lucky for me. So I can't wait to see what I can brainstorm. Good luck to everyone!

I feel like this is premature, but it's what just came to my mind.

I might be posting another one. The Armored Easter Bunny

This is the only idea I have right now: decorated eggs.

@SirLegendary: meh, don't think it's that good. I had another idea in mind, but, after several failed attempts, I was tired and gave up. Thanks, though ^^

And probably my last entry for the contest: a bunny, obviously.

Can we make an entry now and in the future, if we can draw an even more interesting Armatar, can we post the new Armatar and ask that new Armater to be considered for judging?
