Next stop after the Spring warm up in our ArmorGames Armatar Contest! is the sizzling season that makes everyone happy! Are you ready for? The long awaited...

SUMMER EDITION!!!

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

As usual, here are the guidelines that help you figure out what is allowed and what is not :

# ARMATAR CONTEST GUIDELINES :

1) All entries must be appropriate. They cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Keep it clean!
2) The entry must be square and at least 512x512 pixels in dimension.
3) 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.
4) 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!
5) 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.
...

# CLOSING DATE OF THIS CONTEST :

As most of you have a long summer vacation, we will have a long entry window for this contest. Heh, you've got more than enough time on your hands to make a whole bunch of awesome creations, right?! Just make sure to submit them before the closing date of 08/24/2014!
...

# 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.)
...

As always, we are looking forward to seeing your wonderful ideas and contributions! Are you ready to take 'em and make 'em? Bake your thoughts to their boiling point in the hot sun, swim in your sea of endless ideas, listen to the seashell whispering to you about what you can make, climb up that tall palm tree and harvest that coconut brain of yours! Eh... eh... that's enough DayCee...

Right! *cough* Ahem... Make 'em look good! Amaze us!!! =)

Dang you, @MrDayCee. I guessed that there would be a summer contest, so I made a beach ball two weeks ago.

It looks more like this scaled down to 100x100:

I also edited an old design of mine all the way back from the Spring 2010 contest, now that I have four more years of computer graphic art skills under my belt.

Old image (100x100):

New image (512x512):

That's all I have for now.

Why do you feel it is not great at a larger scale @HecticHermit? I think it looks fantastic! It's almost a real painting to me!! =)
