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! =)
Oh shute! (oO) I still don't have any presents!! Right, I'm off to the store!! B-BYE!! *runs*

Well here it is, my first entry :-)
I am quite satisfied with the outcome, hope you enjoy it.
I think something went wrong there @PixelDude... the image directed to in the link doesn't seem to exsist anymore...
And I like your entry, but... you do need to submit it in the mandatory 512x512 pixel size in order for it to be accepted. I think you were trying to with that link, but could you please try again?
I've put a lot of anger and meaning into this. Hope you like it. Btw @MrDayCee, I tweeted this picture so if ever you find a copy of it in twitter that would be. @geeesguerra <-- twitter. Just so you don't think I'm plagarizing!
Alright I'm trying this again.
512 x 512
100 x 100
(hoping these stay).
I don't know how to shrink it, but here.
There we go! Inverted Love!
Excuse me, but on the previous page one of my picture uploads failed, and now it turned into some sort of picture. I did not make it, nor did I try to enter that in. I would appreciate it if you could remove that post to avoid getting banned from the competition.
You mean the post that has a link redirecting to a "Not found" page @Pixeldude? Don't worry about that... such a thing won't get you banned from the competition! I don't bann people that easily you know...
Hmm... on mobile it has some sort of black & white drawing. It doesn't seem to show on desktop.
Edit: Okay, it was on mobile, but now it appears to be completely gone. So no worries.
can we enter more than once? Also, I think this should work....
Of course @Saphire24! You can enter as many times as you want! But only one of the entries 'could' win per user...
"Robots can love too!"
If robots can love, than they can also be hurt. For those of us who have no valentine today.
