Time sure flies when you're having fun! Especially when you're busy frying your brains over that crunching puzzle, patiently laying low to snipe that enemy from the roof, raging while slashing thousands of zombies to a pulp, frenzy-feeding on loads of sushi or carefully planning your strategic march towards the enemy trenches! All this at your favorite web-address for free games online: Armor Games of course! And what do you know? Time really did fly! It's already 10 years since Armor Games started!!!
And because of this awesome 10th anniversary of Armor Games, we would like you to send in your own best memories of this website during the past decade of gaming on this website! Anything related to Armor Games is allowed! Whether it is your own fan art, your very own version of the website's most famous game characters (Important note: your own drawn versions, not a 1-on-1 copy or part of a character), a nice little Ferret or Unicorn, you name it! As long as it is related to the...
ARMOR GAMES' ARMATAR CONTEST: 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION!!!
Here are the usual rules and guidelines to help you...
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 contest will remain open from 10/13/2015 'till 01/14/2016!!
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!
And because we can only celebrate a 10th Anniversary once... we are giving away some...
We will randomly pick one username from all winning submissions and this user will... *drum roll* ...
WIN 6 MONTHS AFG+ AND THEIR VERY OWN SUSHI CAT PLUSHY!!!
We're super excited to see what you all come up with in those awesome creative works of art! Maybe you'll take us back to one of your fantastic memories from the past? Or maybe you want to celebrate with our residential furry frenzy, Sushi Cat, and draw a nice image of it feeding? Surprise us and take us back on a stroll down memory lane, or perhaps... the future of Armor Games?! Who knows! As always, amaze us!!

Hmm! This would need some serious thought, a decade of glorious gaming in one image!!!!
On the case.
First of all - Happy Birthday AG.
Ehm, ¨this is the first time i'll try to make an armatar¨, which application/gear i need to use to make one? (just curious)
PD: i'll try to make my best to do it!
I finally have an excuse to use this:
Hello @SomeAnubis ther are lots of free art apps to create with. A few I use are Gimp, and Pixlr if you can use vector, Inkscape is also an option.
Windows paint is also a fomat that can be used without having to download any other software.
It has to be 512X512 pixels in size and you can upload it using a site such as tinypic (remember to copy the IMG code then change the start capital and end capital IMG to img when you paste it here)
Hope this helps.
Happy Birthday! I hope there are some cool Armatars. Unfortunately, I could not make one but I am sure they will be awesome!
@yellowcat give it a try, no entry is looked on as unworthy.
Happy Anniversary Armor Games!!!
@huwbert2013 i didn't have the software or the time to do one
Gonna get right on it I love AG. Been playing since the start but I was really little and didn't know anything xD
Here goes nothing
Oh, it's on like Donkey Kong @MrDayCee.
and let's not forget one of Games of Gondors mainstay characters:
I have few ideas in my mind... but can't promise anything...
Time is an issue here :/
However , want to put this two. They were made of quest images few years ago , and will perfectly fit for this occasion. My personal favorite addition to Armor Games website , QUESTS XD
I think that the first upload didn't work :O So I will post again.
Happy 10th birthday Armor Games! Have some cake. Mmm, chocolate! ^^
