Summer is almost over and so is the "Summer Edition" of the ArmorGames' Armatar Contest. We can truly state that this edition was a BIG success, rendering a fantastic amount of awesome creations made by our users, which made it impossible to choose a winner! Thank you all for your incredible entries!!
Moving onwards to the next edition again and some of you may already know what it is... as we're back with that popular theme that is even celebrated with it's very own, special day of the year, which is coming Saturday! For those of you still wondering what this theme could be, well... Arrr, me hearty! Sat'rday be th'day we be celebratin' "Talk like a Pirate day", so the new theme be all'bout:
...well shiver me timbers... PIRATES!!! YARR!!!
Avast! By the powers! 'ere be guidelines that'll help ye figur'out what be allowed and what 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 :
This'ere brand new contest be runnin' for a fair time now, so aye, we be lookin' at a grand grand booty o'drawin's from all o'ye scurvy dogs! What time 'tis be ye say? Well, that Jolly Roger be wavin' up high from 09/14/2015 'till 10/12/2015 matey!!
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!

Oh wow, very cool entries so far!
And, just to stay modern:
And another in my usual art style :
Looks interesting, I'll probably throw something together for this sooner or later.
Aside from the fact that I absolutely hate Talk Like a Pirate Day because that's my birthday, and usually what happens is that people are so caught up in congratulating each other in their pirate voices that they forget to give me things #tragedie
Awesome entries so far, I hope some bearded pirates make it in though!
Nice stuff here. I badly want to enter a submission, but my computer crashed a few weeks ago so I don't have access to an art program. *on my android here* :|
What should be done on the day, that is this Saturday to get the quest?
I'd like to replace my second one with this, because it turned out much better:
Awesome entries so far guys!! Excellent!!!
@StormWalker Sorry to hear that... I hope this year people will think of your birthday more than Talk Like a Pirate Day!
@SportShark the contest is open untill the beginning of October, so there's enough time! Maybe start thinking about an entry already and get a head start?
@akshobhya Play a Pirate game on TLaPD is what needs to be done!
I will start uploading some of the entries already, just so everyone can get into character before Saturday!
Arr maties! This 'ere be Capn' Doombreed's terrifying flag.
And scaled down to 100x100:
So any game under the pirate tag played will give me a quest?
All entries so far have been uploaded and made available for users to choose!
Along with several others... pick y'er fav'rite maties! YARR!!!
My drawing skills are not really good, so if someone can draw me something related to a Kraken, it would be very kind :3
