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!!! =)

@xerox, I think you should enter 512X512 and then resize it below it.(Based on other Armatar-containing posts)

Because of the different uses on the Armor Games website, the entry has to be 512x512 @xerox. The person from the staff in charge of the visual stuff requested this to be the standard format for Armatars. It also means that when they are initially made at a larger size, they scale down better.

Sir Legendary is thanking me?!
The mod MDC has explained everything about my entry. Sorry that it could not make it to the judgement! So I thought of creating another one. But a family tour has been fixed suddenly. I will be away form my PC from today and may not be able to create it once again.
But there is always a second chance right?(Atleast in here)!
[The good news for me is that I can atleast participate in the community through a mobile Device]

Alright. This is my first entry in an armatar contest. The armatar is decent (could have been a lot better) but the way it was created is everything. Take a look:

Yes, I know it doesn't look much but it is a flower. This the first drawing, one that I intend to improve if I have time. But the interesting part is, it was at first one of my Mechanical Engineering designs by AutoCAD. I changed some lines, hit the snapshot key, opened it in GIMP and voila!

Hello Everyone. This is my second Armatar Entry for this contest. When I started thinking about creating a new Armatar, @R2D21999 's Armatar struck my mind and I thought that I could create a new Armatar, based on his Armatar, but with a new spring outfit and background. So, here is the Armatar created by me -

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If anyone could resize the Armatar, it would be Great!

If anyone can give me Reviews about this Armatar and/or Suggestions, it would be good and that would help me to improvise further in my future entries.

Hey @akshobhya, just a thought. If someone tries to resize your image to the correct dimensions(512x512), everything in the picture would look fatter. Why don't you widen the view of the scenery?
