Next stop after the Spring warm up in our Armor Games' Armatar Contest is the sizzling season that makes everyone happy!! Are you ready? Because here comes the long awaited...
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 most of you have a long summer vacation, we will have a long entry window for this contest. Heh, you've got more than enough time on your hands to make a whole bunch of awesome creations, right?! Just make sure to submit them before the closing date of 09/01/2015!
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!
As always, we are looking forward to seeing your wonderful ideas and contributions! Are you ready to take 'em and make 'em? Bake your thoughts to their boiling point in the hot sun, swim in your sea of endless ideas, listen to the seashell whispering to you about what you can make, climb up that tall palm tree and harvest that coconut brain of yours! Eh... eh... that's enough DayCee...
Right! *cough* Ahem... Make 'em look good! Amaze us!!! =)

Awesome job guys! Really impressive...
these are my last update's for this contest
@Andelhofs May I ask what it is to represent? That's a quite sinister looking image...
@daydreamer01 Could you please resize your image to meet the requirements? It needs to be squared and at least 512 x 512 pixels for being made available as an Armatar... thanx!
this one is 518 x 518 size if that's not ok i will try again
does it have to be exactly 512 x 512 pixels? because it
looks a little more blurry at that size?
@MrDayCee do you think it is possible i uploaded the wrong image ? Edit: kind of a ghost like this..
@daydreamer01 This is fine! As long as it's 512 x 512 pixels mininal and squared. A bit bigger is no problem; smaller would be though.
ok great thank you for telling me
and i'm sorry for all the trouble of me posting so much
i really learned a lot about editing and uploading by entering
this contest and talking with everyone here
so honestly thanks to everyone for the patience and kindness
shown to me here
In before the deadline.
Ah, ok! I was thinking of a sea dragon because it spews water.
I've thought it's Loch Ness.
Another entry before the deadline. A seahorse... just because they are cute.
