The holiday season has started and... with Christmas at the door, Armor Games has a special treat for its members in the form of ARMORMAS! 12 days of opening special holiday presents! And one of these special presents is one of our favorite friends who has a new game for you... in honor of this awesome Armormas present, we present a special limited edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest as well! Get ready for...

Yes! Our little ball of furr has returned with a great game once more! But we need you to show your gifted creations to make him purrr even more! Let's go over the rules first...

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!

Allright! Now grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse, and start making your wonderful original works of art to please our purrrring friend! We do want to keep him happy, or he will become angry and raid our precious stock of sushi!! Oh-meow!! Better get to drawing then!! As always... be creative and amaze us! =)

@MrDayCee, I'm sorry, I thought you thought I cropped something but yes, I thought about what they said, and even viewed my work on 50x50 size. I'm going to darken the outlines, hopefully it will work out well without having to remove the text. The text means "sushi" in Japanese Kanji. I asked a friend for help on how it was spelled out.

@MrDayCee Is it okay, if the big image isn't exactly 500x500? If I make it any bigger it looks terrible. But here it is, if it's not accepted can you let me know?

@trigon123 Yes, that sun is part of the Sushi Cat-apult game! Just take a look at page 3 of this thread and you will see...

@SirLegendary Much better! Now it shows up more clearly as a sharper image when scaled down! The submissions need to be in 512x512 format size. You can't resize the image for 12 more pixels in either direction? This shouldn't be that hard without losing quality...?

@MrDayCee, right, so I did my final touches. I made the image bigger and sharpened some parts because I'm bothered if it looks a little pixelated, but here you go
