It's been quiet for a short while since we've all had those incredibly, wonderful, romantic encounters during the Valentines Day Edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest! Is it fair to say we've had our share of hearts in there?! Heheh... All of the creative participants delivered a wonderful dosage of love with their fantastic artwork! Awesome job everyone! As always!

Well, like I said, it has been quiet for a short while and it's a short one this time, but we launch a quick Armatar Contest that will have the bunnies race to enter their submissions before the upcoming hunt for eggs! That's right... it's time for the:

Better start using your creative minds and have them turn into overdrive to deliver those eggs... errr... arts! Like I stated, it's a short run for you bunnies, but who's to say it won't be a glorious one?! Make sure to check the rules for the contest if you wonder about anything and start your run!

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 little over a week after Easter, 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.)

Grab your pencils... Ready?
Lay out your sheets of paper... on your marks?!
Work your mind... set?
Aaaaaannnndddd.... GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my god! We're off! It's promising to be a great race! Everyone is going for the prize!!! Pencils are drawing! Mouses are swirling! Brains are working overtime and get so hot you can fry an egg on it!!! AAAAHHHHH!!!!
Sorry...
Heat of the moment...

@GoodyPundit I'm wondering... do you build up your images one tile at a time, or do you draw something and then color it in? You habe a good eye for shading as it seems! Haven't seen many pixel artists around with such good work!

Great job on the Old English Text font @Koshionos! It's pretty hard to draw those well!

Sorry for late reply
I drew the outlines first, then the raw lighting guidance, and add everything after that

If it's okay to attach the sketch image here for sharing purpose, I'll sure upload it

@GoodyPundit Sure! It's always good to share some images about how art is made to help others! I've been thinking about creating a thread to help artists who have questions on how to make something or help them when they have a problem with getting the right image with what they had in mind... I think I've stalled on making it long enough. I'll let you know whenever it's up so you can post in there too if you want, ok?

@Scarlet53, there are a couple ways, most upload pictures to flikr or photobucket, and then you copy the URL into the prompt that comes when you click (IMAGE) above the comment entry box.
