SPRING!!!

As usual, here are the guidelines that help you figure out what is allowed and what is not :

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 :

As always with the Spring Edition, the window for this contest will be a little longer, from 04/11/2015 untill 06/30/2015, so there's plenty of time for you to submit your wonderful pieces of art!!

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 Armatar Creator Quest can only be awarded once per user. If a particular user wins another edition, they will not receive this Quest again, as Quests can not be achieved a second time;
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!

We're looking forward to seeing your contributions! So, soak up that fresh Spring breeze, let those first rays of sun tickle your skin and your imagination, be inspired by the huge palet of vibrant colorful scenery outside and grab that pencil or mouse to splash those ideas onto paper or your computer screen! It's Spring time people! Make 'em look good! Amaze us!!! =)

Let us counteract this bright cheeriness, and a reminder of whom we had left behind.

This time, The Armatar topic is Spring. When the word Spring is said, the first images that may come to our mind is a vast Grassland sort of Landscape or a large area of land filled with blooming flowers and mostly an image which has a sunny background! This was what came to my mind. A large area with colourful, blooming flowers. With these flowers come the Butterflies. They are small, but colourful and beautiful Insects. And when the whole landscape is considered, the Butterflies which are relatively small sometimes go unnoticed. So, when I began thinking of creating the Armatar, I thought that I should bring those little fascinating Butterflies to the Limelight. So, here is my Armatar, created by me.

Note: This entry may appear a bit bright to a few people. This is because the monitor on which the Armatar was designed was a bit dark(It had a low Brightness) and I made it bright on that computer. But after uploading it to the internet, I found out that it was a bit bright.

If AG would like the entry a bit darker, I surely will do it

2) If the Image link is copied and pasted in a new tab, it will redirect you to the Photobucket website and my Username there is "ArmorGames" and not "akshobhya". Sorry about this.

3) I also had a few problems resizing the Armatar. If anyone could do that, it would be great!

@akshobhya I need to ask the question and I would like to get an honest answer from you please... Did you create this butterfly image by yourself entirely?

If 'yes', I would like you to provide proof of this please.

If 'no', then I have to point out and stress the rules on plagiarism, which can be found in the OP of this thread...

If it's the latter, I will let it slide for this one time around, but only if you are honest about it straight away, ok?

@Darkfire45 I am fairly certain that @MrDayCee already knows this. He was trying to give the poster a chance to come clean.

With your post that kind of defeats the purpose.... just saying.

@Darkfire45 I erased your post. No need to blow this up even more, ok? I'm sure you understand.

@xerox, it doesn't matter if your top notch or not, do it because it's fun!

@Koshionos is right @xerox, it's about the fun, not wether you're a top-notch artist or not! You should enjoy making art, if this is not the case, your art already has a disadvantage from the start... simply jump in and try to make something is the general advice here. And you can always touch up or alter your work before the closing date, so no need to worry about that, ok?
