Now that we've had our annual dosage of chocolate and colored eggs, the contest aaaaalllllmost over, it is time for our returning seasonal themed edition of the ArmorGames Armatar Contest! The season that brings out everyone to play, even the game characters! They too are taking a short break to enjoy the colorful scenery of:

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!!! =)

@Doombreed The 100x100 image shows an 'upward curve' on the body on the top side underneath the upper wing, whereas the 512x512 image has a 'downward curve' which makes the body more slim. See it?

@mrDayCee , it's sad i told some other AG people last day that you are the most independent Moderator on AG i was wrong...

People post here pic of baseball bats, with text (for stormwalker), or a (waffling) fish.. people post here even insulting text to each other and you didn't step in once... except for me now...

The last entry for me is the special laughing feeling i get when it's spring.. girls look more 'natural' when spring begins.. i can tell hours about that feeling..

And i made it with my entry (it's not finished yet) but i will not make it done.. i did wanna show my drawing as i'm still a beginner but the criticism of some users and now you are to much for me.. delete my magic feeling post... and ban me.. and join yourself with that other mod that in fact inst a mod but just a user that only judge hes not-favor team.

And if you think this post is harsh and unfair.. you are properly right.. but the bitter for that first moderator makes this worse...

Greetings.. (or not)

edit: and where is MATT's entry he did post a entry (or i'm a wrong??)

Baseball bats and other related armatars are relevant to the spring theme because baseball season begins in springtime, and the "for StormWalker" armatars are more of a running joke than they are serious entries.

Matt's entry can be found on page 7.

Um... Waffling?...?...?

Also:
Baseball stuff => Baseball season => Summer.
Salmon => Salmon run => Summer.
Dying snowmen => Hot weather => Summer.
Birds return to the northern hemisphere in Summer.
Watermelon is conventionally eaten in Summer.
Many flowering plants bloom in Summer.
Partially drawn face-like-things do not suggest Summer.

people post here even insulting text to each other and you didn't step in once...
Where? Show me one derogatory, deprecating, or otherwise libellious statement within this thread that is not coming from you.

i did wanna show my drawing as i'm still a beginner but the criticism of some users and now you are to much for me..
What criticism? He only asked you for some clarification.

@FishPreferred you can leave me alone please

if this is not insulting, than i'm living on an other planet...

And you are mistaken...
IT's NOT SUMMER it's SPRING

And as you mention you fish is summer not spring.. so pull it out of contest..
People like you destroy many things...

And if he only asked some clarification.. i don't feel it that way.. if he don't say a thing about your waffeling (as no i don't tell anything) fish than he is prejudge and unfair... if a police officer give 1 man a fee and the other not in the same conditions..; that is exact what happen here..

As stated before, people like you (FishPreferred) destroy society, stick there nose in a lot of things that they are not even allowed to.. and i hope people that do that pay the price sooner than later
