Forums → Art, Music, and Writing → [Closed][Official] Armor Games' Armatar Contest: VALENTINES DAY!!!
The Holidays and Winter Season is allmost over... and this means we're coming up to an annual day of love and affection for everyone!
Ahuh... ahuh... that's right! Sooo... who's YOUR secret sweetheart?! Got anyone particular in mind?! Did you buy him/her a nice Valentine's present?! Maybe some flowers, chocolate or a beautiful card?! Yes?!
Or... perhaps you're feeling creative and you're making your very own custom special delux Valentine's Card!! BUT WAIT!! First we need you to show an effort and submit some wonderful creations of art for our contest! *whispers* So you can practice on your drawing skills and amaze him/her! *winks*
Well, the rules are still the same! Here they are...
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 2 weeks after 'THE' day: 28th February 2015, so there's more than enough time for you to enter your artwork!
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! =)

This is so terrible. I'm already heartbroken.
BUT for my love of this site I must enter in this one too.
Don't worry, Legend, me too. :'(
I hope to join this too, but I'm stuck with paint...
I don't like Valentines Day.....but I do like art contests..... I will see if I can come up with anything remotely good.
This looks fun ^^
I'll see what I can do, I can't guarantee that it'll be good though
Btw, you shouldn't be heartbroken Legend
And Saphire, I use paint too, and I think most of us do tbh
PixelDude, Although I've never seen your art before, I'm sure your drawing(s) will be amazing
I look forward to seeing all of your entries, I'm sure they'll all be amazing
Uhmm... how is this 'so terrible' @SirLegendary?! I'm a little confused here...
Looking forward to everyone's creative work!
@MrDayCee it's not the contest, or anything related to AG, ITS LIFE, ITS LIFE MAN. PROBLEMS, PEOPLE, VALENTINES DAY IS ONLY A DAY FOR A SMALL PERCENT OF THE WORLD KILL ME NOW.
I mean, *cough* love is only chemical.
Bang, there goes inspiration from the barrel of a smoking gun.
I've decided to recycle one of my submissions from last year, since it wasn't added to amartar list (if I'm not mistaken). I've made a few tweaks, though.
Cupid! Nice one @kegaumongo!!
@SirLegendary use this 'anger' (?) as inspiration and be awesome and creative!
"Robots can love too!"
Another great entry venom!
Here we have some sort of flower.
Everything that spawns from your hands is magic @kegaumongo... (oO)
For the ladies XD
