After a nice turkey and pie dinner... *brp* ...ooopss... (oO) ...gosh, I was so busy eating turkey, I almost forgot to launch the next Armatar Contest!! Sorry for that everyone!! ...ahem, right... Sooo, the next stop, and this is the last, ultimate, final one (orrr... is it?! Ho Ho Ho...), in the Armor Games' Armatar Contest Editions for 2016... *clears throat* ...dumdummm... sing along everybody!!
"It's the mooooost... won-der-ful tiiiimmme... of the yearrrr!!! (Andy Williams)
Yes! It's time to dress for the cold and have those wonderful snowball fights , make your own snowman , decorate the Christmas tree , wonder what Santa's going to bring you , prepare your Fireworks and stock up on Champagne! This Winter Edition will behold every theme during the Winter Holidays, which means Winter Holidays (duh), Christmas, New Year, Chanoeka, Sinterklaas, you name it! BUT... FIRST, we need you to make some excellent art for the Armatar Contest! The rules never changed! Here they are once more...
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 untill 01/07/2018, 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. (Note: Your entry needs to be according to the contest rules and has to be chosen for uploading to be valid.)
Alongside this Merit for your participation, we 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. 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!
Allright! Now grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse, and start making your wonderful original works of art! As always... be creative and amaze us! =)
Right, that's that... now, where's my hot coco? Ah! *blows* ...hmmmm... Yumm! ^^

@coldplaytalk As much as I would love to talk about coldplay, this forum is for the holiday contest and not dice rolls and coin flips. @MrDayCee to remove the posts?
As @Yellowcat already explained, this thread is for the Armatar Contest only. Your posts have been deleted @coldplaytalk .
If you want to, you are more than welcome to participate in the contest of course. Just make sure to read the instructions on the first page, ok?
All entries up till now have been made available for chosing!
Enjoy the Holidays everyone! And have a Merry Christmas with your family, friends and loved ones!
@MrDayCee Thank you very much and Merry Christmas! :-)
I see that you uploaded my previous version, that I deleted. Here's my final version and really sorry for this confusion :-/ I will remind this after Xmas if that won't be a problem to upload :-)
Congrats to all!! And Merry Christmas!! Have a fun-filled holiday!
@PLGuy I've exchanged your entry with the new one you made. Nice work!
@PHLHimself I seemed to have missed your post about the game character? Sorry for that... yes, you are free to create your art work based upon game characters from Armor Games. As long as you make it your self entirely of course. Editing an image of a game character is not allowed as this is not something you made from scratch. Looking forward to your entry!
Thank you @MrDayCee ! I learned how to make vector graphics thanks to Armatar Contest Winter Holidays xD
This drawing was inspired by Bernard Bronzefist and Yule Present Bearer from Dawn of the Dragons because both of them are only around during winter events (or materials only obtainable on winter)
i had lot of fun doing it, it took a while, maybe on next entry i will manage something more simple, question, can i post more than 1 entry? i didnt understood very well the description on that part
have a awesome xmas btw! :3
@muglo That looks awesome! xD I first time see a Christmass armor.
You can post more than one entry during one Armatar Contest, but according to the rules you won't get multiple merits for that. And of course on next editions you can get another merits.
Thanks and Merry Christmas! ^^
Drawing inspired again on Dawn of the Dragons (i really like that game >.> )
this time it was inspired on the Dragon Spirit Illusion set which the materials to craft only appears at Winter World raids(desisaav citadel) and was very useful for me during 2017(free set XD )
happy new year, i hope im not too late, ive been working on this, the idea started being something pretty simple but i ended up having so much fun ahahha
im looking foward to participate in the next ones.
Just Santa as a jester with a coockie I wanna dip in my milk
Wow these entries are pure awesomeness xD
@MrDayCee I would like to exchange my armatar for this one:
Gray borders kinda cut some of previous picture on forums. I hope it's not a problem
First time I try this. I might submit variations of this if that's O.K. Sorry if I messed up. Here goes nothing.
Here's Father Christmas!
Sadly, i cant join because i have exams.
