After a nice turkey and pie dinner... *brp* ...ooopss... (oO) ...gosh, I was so busy eating turkey, the deadline to put up this year's Thanksgiving Edition passed before I even knew it!! Sorry for that everyone!! ...ahem, right... but, we can still look back at two very successfull editions before this new one, which were: the Animals and Halloween edition of the ArmorGames' Armatar Contest!! Once more, a lot of wonderful artwork was created / entered and those that contributed are entitled to receive their deserved Merit! Need to make this happen... *adds it to 'asap' list*
So, the next stop, and this is the last, ultimate, final one (orrr... is it?! Ho Ho Ho...), in the Armatar Contest Editions for 2014... *clears throat* ...dumdummm... sing along everybody!!
"It's the mooooost... won-der-ful tiiiimmme... of the yearrrr!!! (Andy Williams)
Yes! It's time to dress for the cold and have those wonderful snowball fights, make your own snowman, decorate the Christmas tree, wonder what Santa's going to bring you, prepare your Fireworks and stock up on Champagne! This Winter Edition will behold every theme during the Winter Holidays, which means Winter Holidays (duh), Christmas, New Year, Chanoeka, Sinterklaas, you name it! BUT... FIRST, we need you to make some excellent art for the Armatar Contest! The rules never changed! 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 :
The contest will remain open untill mid/end January, so there's more than enough time for you to enter your artwork! Closing date will be announced whenever it's time...
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.)
Allright! Now grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse, and start making your wonderful original works of art! As always... be creative and amaze us! =)
Right, that's that... now, where's my hot coco? Ah! *blows* ...hmmmm... Yumm! ^^

@thesakew I actually tried entering a .gif before and it doesn't work
@SirLegendary yes you can enter as many as you want
My next one looks a bit plain at 512x512, but it looks good at armatar (100x100) size-
Presents! What could be in them? Ooooooo!
@kegaumongo Some presents
I wonder what is the inside of the presents.
@thesakew: mmm, who knows. There could be a smaller box inside of that box and then another one. And so on until you get to the last box and you open it and see a handwritten note with these words: "Sorry, but the present is in another castle".
Nice entry, by the way. Unfortunately, this kind of file is not supported :[
Another entry: snowflakes! I think I did something similar two years ago, but, due to lack of ideas, here we go again:
First time i draw something on paint
Umm... It looks ugly in 520x520 can it be 580x520?
Armatar size (hope it is)
Is it working? I cant see them :/
Oh well, links are here.
@Im_a_gamer your armatar looks great! if I didn't have one already picked, I'd use it.
New clothes for Christmas.
Here's my last, sorry the snowman's so... lumpy.
Hey, I'm new to this forum and this type of contests. I like it. Here is my first image.
What is better than enjoying christmas with a snow leapord?
Idk why the 100x100 expired but here it is again.
