Some of you may have already read about it somewhere (our Armor Games News section? ), or perhaps heard a friend talk about it (give him or her a big hug!)... and yes, it's true! The fantastic game Pinstripe made by Atmos Games / Thomas Brush -already available on Steam- is finally going to be launched on Xbox One (February 7th, 2018) and PS4 (February 13th, 2018) as well for you to enjoy! YES! Woo-hoo!
In honor of this special occasion we are launching an Official Armor Games' Armatar Contest: "Special Pinstripe Edition"!!
This is your chance to get creative once more to let us see your own fantastic version of this game in the form of an Armatar. Draw one of the game's characters, re-create the game's beautiful -yet mysterious- scenery, or perhaps think out of the box and truly amaze us? We would love to see your own hand-crafted art work based upon this captivating game! Maybe you need some references, examples, ideas, information, you-name-it? Well, why not play the Pinstripe Chapter 1 Demo Game right here on Armor Games? Or visit the Armor Games Studios Pinstripe Page dedicated to this breathtaking game!
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 03/18/2018, 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!
[EXTRA PRIZES!!] Atmos Games' Thomas Brush ( @wittyhobos ), the game dev who created this wonderful game, has agreed to help judge your entries and will help me pick the winning Armatars! But that's not all... hang on to your seats... each of these winners will receive a special Pinstripe gift bundle that includes a Pinstripe t-shirt, a 'Postcard from Hell' and... the Pinstripe Original Soundtrack! Now, how's that for a Contest prize huh?!
Allright! 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! =)

Totally buying this on xbox to play!
I don't have an xbox or any of those
But I still love drawing and will participate in this contest!(after I find out what Pinstripe is)
Looks like the link to the demo game on armorgames doesn't work?
Here's a correct link
I'll have a go at this game, never heard about it, I kinda had a "nightmare before christmas" kinda vibe when I saw the image in the first post
@Yellowcat The AGAC mailing list is very much alive! I just ran out of time to be able to send it out yesterday... sorry...
@abcdragon66 Pinstripe is a true gem in gaming. You'll see...
@PHLHimself Oops... sorry! I fixed the 2 links now. Thanx for the correct link!
Oooh lala! With extra merch incentive this time! I like it!
I shall be back soon with something, soon!
I'm BACK!!! I've had Mr. Pinstripe stuck in my head since I first played this game (and not in a good way lol). You're welcome; call me when you have nightmares
This will probs be disqualified, but I had to do it.
So, I put a pin on some stripes. (get it, pin-stripe). I've only got the 512 version for now, 100 coming soon.
Oh boo... my pictures didn't work...
Ps. @yellowcat - *Ba-doom tsss* xD nice.
OMG looks amazing!!! Will it be available online soon?
I did another one!! It's looking through the telescope at Mr. Pinstripe's house
Where do you do them? I want to learn!
Where do you do them? I want to learn!
What do you mean? Learning to make these armatars?
You can use illustrator, photoshop, paintshop, flash or gimp to make them (just to name a few). Lots of tutorials on youtube and whatnot.
Once Upon A Coma, boyz!!! Sorry if this is a little off topic but Atmos games ain't done making games. Brand spankin' new one for ya'll to check out on Thunderclap and kickstarter. I'll hand you the links soon.
Yeah @bluebl00d I used Sketchbook Pro for these pieces, but previously, I've used Piskel as well, for pixel armatars You could use traditional mediums as well, like pen and paper, you just have to make sure the picture you submit is 100x100 and 512x512
Thanks @PHLHimself I will check those out and also I will find some tutorials!
@snoboxstudio That's cool, thanks for the info, I will do a bit more of research and probably try out Piskel since it's free and see whether I can do it or not, or maybe use the free trial on Sketchbook Pro.
