Hello Armor Gamers!

It's that time again! Spring is a great season full of inspiration, which we are hoping will help you make some great armatars. Now I know that it isn't spring everywhere right now, but it is for the AG office. So how this works is that you can submit your own original armatars to this thread following the theme of Spring. If I like it, I will add it to the 0AP armatar section for all members to use! You can reference previous contests for a better idea of what this is all about here.

Keep in mind that there are some guidelines, and unless your entry follows these set of rules it will not be accepted. So be sure to check those out.

GUIDELINES:
1. Must be appropriate. Cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Try to keep it clean!
2. The entry must be square, and at least 100x100 pixels in dimension.
3. 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 armatar size. A few suggestions about this:
- Sometimes simple is better. If you go into a lot of detail, it might not look as great when you scale it down. So just keep in mind what the final size will be.
- If you are able to do vector, that can help with the sharpness of the image. However, since they are so small this probably isn't a big issue.
4. Must be completely original. You cannot use elements from other piece of artwork, the entire armatar must be 100% original.
5. Must be spring themed.

Good luck! And I look forward to seeing some awesome spring armatars =)

Yes!
So ShintetsuWA's offer got through to you?

Good ol' Shintetsu.
I'll be looking forward too all the pictures, especially yours Zophia :D

Being a bad artist, myself...I think mine will look horrible even if I try. Maybe I'll see if I can brew up one.

So, when is the deadline for the armatar? I'm not planning on making one myself, but I'm just curious for the people who are.

OK, I thought since I never entered into one of these, that I would put one up.

Um, I think there needs to be more light colors in the one I can see at the moment.

No, we have actually been planning on doing one for a while.

So, when is the deadline for the armatar?

Hmm... well spring's deadline is when summer starts, but I'm not sure yet if we will go that long. We will have to see =)

Wow, I'm smart, huh?

So, I have another question. :/

I have an idea for this, but I don't know where to make the picture, how to get a url for it, and how to make it 100x100.

I'm sorry, I've never participated in something like this. I want to, though. :)
