The last edition was a HUUUUGE success! It was awesome to see so many entries and participants in an Armor Games' Armatar Contest!

So, let's try and continue this momentum. Unfortunately we had to skip it last year, but the beloved seasonal theme is back! Let's dive into the...

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2937/14655297575_25c7cc7ce1_b_d.jpg

As always, the rules remained the same. 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 :

This Contest will be held untill 07/30/2017, so there's more than enough time 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. (Note: Your entry needs to be according to the contest rules and has to be chosen for uploading to be valid.)

Alongside this Merit for your participation, we 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. 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 Armatar Creator Quest can only be awarded once per user. If a particular user wins another edition, they will not receive this Quest again, as Quests can not be achieved a second time;
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!

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

@PLGuy Excellent entry! And yes, you can submit your art work on July 30th as well. The last day of the deadline is always included for entering. Sorry I missed your post a few pages back... But yes, as long as you made it yourself, you can enter it into the competition, as it is art. Even 3D models of course.

All submitted entries thus far have been uploaded and made available for selection! Well done everyone!

Remember... closing date is July 30th, 2017, so you better hurry if you want to add more art work!

( @koshionos If you want your work included into this edition, please make sure I can grab the images. Right now, your links are broken/expired. )

@SpiritTaker If you still want to have your work submitted, I suggest you re-upload your art work to another hosting website, like imgur.com for example. It is easy to use and has no restrictions as far as I know, ok?

I think it had to do with an old privacy setting on photobucket...

@SpiritTaker The problem with imgur is that they provide an embed code, but this does not work with the image brackets we use on our forums I'm afraid... I can fix the links, but I need to be on my laptop in order to do so. (Mobile now) I will try to grab them tomorrow and notify you, ok?

Oh i totally forgot about checking this topic!
@MrDayCee I thank you for complimenting my armatar xD I also like yours very much!
@SpiritTaker Yes I am using mainly Gimp to edit picture, and in some places Paint, cause Gimp is in some places very slow in use (at least in my case ).
You also forgot to add to your links of images .png (it's not automatically in a link from imgur).
So to speed up the work for MrDayCee I'll just do that for you mate:

@SpiritTaker I can see your entries now, as @PLGuy posted yours again, but the sizes are not according to the contest's rules I'm afraid... they need to be at least 512 x 512 px squared to be suitable for uploading. Could you please fix that so I can add them?
