It is time to feed all you hungry artists and finally give you something new to work with, right? Well, we have just that! A brand new Armor Games' Armatar Contest for you!

A special limited edition dedicated to friends for life who battle side by side endlessly... it's time for:

If you're wondering what to do, or in need of some inspiration, why not check out the game and play a little to get the feel of it?! Get to know all the characters, the surroundings and the game specifics... try it out and play Super Adventure Pals !

Fire up those creative brains once more and pump out those awesome works of art! These pals deserve a wonderful submission from you! But first... as always... zee rules:

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 be held from 08/24/2016 untill 09/21/2016, so there's more than enough time for you to enter your artwork!

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;
If a particular user wins more than one edition, they will only receive this special Quest once, as we can not award a certain Quest a second time because it is unique;
Every year there will be a new Armatar Creator Quest, which will be achievable for every participant;
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!

BUT WAIT

...that's not all... huh?! It's not? ... NOPE! We have an extra prize to give away, something very special! From the winning submissions, we will draw one lucky user who will receive an exclusive one-time-only personal Armatar made by Jimp! Oooohh... You may know him from his most famous creation of all: Sushi Cat!

So if you want to have yourself 'Jimpified'... you better get to work then!

We're looking forward to see all your wonderful creations!

As always, have fun, be creative and amaze us! =)

So... is this a game that we need to draw from? or whatever we'd like?

@Koshionos The idea is to draw anything that relates to the game in general. There's tons of stuff in there, so you have quite a wide angle to work from here. (Did I just give a hint? Oops...)

Great start @SirLegendary!

Here is one cute pixel art giraffe. It was much easier to create it than I was expecting. I think I'm gonna make another Armatar.

The Quest can only be awarded to a user once per year. If a particular user wins several editions during the same year, they will only receive that particular Quest once, as we can not award a particular Quest a second time;
Every year there will be a new Armatar Creator Quest, which will be achievable for every participant

Was that part always there, or is it a new addition?

So if I am reading this right, I will earn the "new" Armatar Creator quest for example, since I haven't won any armatar contest this year...is that correct? o.O

*EDIT* I just checked, this has been happening since the last contest, the Easter armatar contest o.O It is a relatively new addition but, funny...it slipped my attention completely

Well, since we had a hot dog competition, I thought "Yeah, why not". So I created another pixel art Armatar with hot dog on it and with good old wooden swords, starting weapon in Super Adventure Pals!

I couldn't help but make one more, but I deleted one of my entries because I didn't like it.
