Hello Armor Gamers!

Spring is finally here! And with the change of the seasons, so arrives the Spring Armatar Contest!

You can submit your own original armatars to this thread following the theme of the Spring. If it meets our quality standards, I will add it to the 1AP armatar section for all members to use! You can reference previous contests for a better idea of what this is all about here. You can also check out a few select returning Spring armatars from 2009 in the 5AP section.

There are some guidelines, and unless your entry follows these set of rules it will not be accepted.

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 great armatars =)

Yay! The spring armatar contest! Do they have to be made with a certain program?

There are no "certain programs" required, but the standards are pretty high, so terrible artists like me never make it!

But that may change this spring...

I like it. It's not really complex but perfect in its own way.

I don't think Easter armatars are accepted in this contest, seeing that Easter is a religious holiday.

Yeah right, I'm rubbish yet they accept my work. And because the armatars are so small, you can make pretty simple ones even when you're bad.

It's a part of Spring though, and therefore can be added here. I admit, not many non-Christians will use it, and they can (Should, to support there religion) make their own armatars for the religion (The Jewish users have made wonderful art for the Winter contest you know).


Yayz, I made another one:

It looks pretty good to 100*100 too:

:S man that sun is big... I could make a smaller one but it won't be the same! Please let me know it it's too big but it's ok if you scale it. It was my background which is why it's 1024x768.

You have to scale them down to 100x100.

They didn't accept them last year, so I doubt this year will be any different.
