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! =)

Ah yes, finally, I get to wear my valentines day masterpiece.
Heyyy, those avatars are lookin' nice. It's a cool thing thinking someone may like the work you did and choose it as their armatar. There is a better selection than I thought there would be too.
The slow ferret. I made a note for the Easter ones to go up before Easter this time.
I "love" my new armatar!
Uhmm... which armatar was that then @trigon123?! I only see the flaming dude from KR you've had before... (oO)
Allright everyone! This is what you were waiting for!!!
Here are the winners of the ARMOR GAMES' ARMATAR CONTEST: VALENTINES DAY EDITION!!!
(All winners are presented in random order...)
Tough call between the rose and this one, as they were both awesome! But I liked this one juuussst a little better for its simplicity and perfect portrayal of the theme. Great job!
This one was amazing! I loved it from the get-go! It is original and out of the box, but adorable in a simple way. Truly awesome job!
"Lady Valentine" @ivanxxxxxxx
Who would not fall for this beauty?! She stares with a seductive glance and her mouth draws you near, even if you don't want to! Fantastic drawing!
I love how you took liquidvenom13's idea and turned it around Frank_Frooton! It would have been completely finished when his rainbow mouth would have been tilted downward to express his sadness, but that's a detail. Loveable and colorful! Good job!
"Tough Love" @Koshionos
This one made me laugh... the expression on Cupid's face portrays his struggle with 'tough love' and he seems to be dazzled by the problem of fixing it. A great original piece once again! *two thumbs up*
A lovely hand-drawn image of a gift during the romantic holiday. I already liked the first entry with the single rose, but this one exceeded its predecessor. Very well done sir!
And even though it wasn't chosen as a winner, this entry is definitely worth an honorable mentioning @ThunderCam777! I liked your image, which is bright and shiny, but when scaled down, the image looses its clearness... you can't make out the arrows anymore and the mouth on the heart is lost in the colors. I'm sure to expect more awesome work from you in the future, when looking at this though! Well done!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this edition once again! I enjoyed your entries and now the Armor Games users can too! Everyone should be proud of their work! I hope to see you all back for the next contest!
@MrDayCee Thank you for picking my work! Also, thank you for hosting these contests, they are always fun to join, and I've learned a lot from entering in them, we also owe you thanks!
Congratulations to all the winners!!
@MrDayCee Thanks again for making it fun! Congrats to everyone else who won! It's been a privilege to see such diverse and great artwork!
Those are the very reasons I love to host these contests. Seeing all the great art work and stimulating everyone to be as creative as possible! I simply enjoy pushing people to be creative and find ways to portray their thoughts on paper or on the screen! It's wonderful!!
Merits have been handed out to all the participants! Congratulations to everyone who participated and a BIG thank you for their awesome creative contributions!!!
We couldn't have done this without your creative minds! Thanx!!
