Hello Armor Gamers!

The Halloween Armatar Contest was so successful, that we will be doing it for other holidays as well! It was a great opportunity to see all of the creative talent on Armor Games.

So now we are on the theme of Thanksgiving! I know this is a mostly Americanized holiday, and that it doesn't really reflect what happened historically... but it is still a good time of year to spend time with friends and family, and eat some delicious food!

GUIDELINES:
1. Must be appropriate. Cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Try to keep it clean!
2. The entry must be square, and at least 100x100 pixels in dimension.
3. Must scale down well to 100x100. So if it is larger, make sure that it will still look good when it is scaled down to armatar size. A few suggestions about this:
- Sometimes simple is better. If you go into a lot of detail, it might not look as great when you scale it down. So just keep in mind what the final size will be.
- If you are able to do vector, that can help with the sharpness of the image. However, since they are so small this probably isn't a big issue.

4. Must be completely original. You cannot use elements from other piece of artwork, the entire armatar must be 100% original.
5. Must be Thanksgiving themed.

Good luck! And I look forward to seeing some awesome armatars =)

Is it okay if I come to you and ask how to use that sometime later when I'm not feverishly unable to adopt skills?


Uh, sure, but I don't know how much I don't know about the tool.

First off, I use paint.net, so this tool might not be in GIMP...
Anywho, I first drew a few thick greyish lines that curved at places from the turkey leg. Then go to effects--->blurs--->Gaussian blur. Don't turn up the intensity that much, but that's how it's done!

Alright hope it helps me!

I thought it was just a guy juggling top hats.

It's too small to see anything at 60x60, especially since his eyes, buttons, and cuffs are only 1 px wide. So make the man bigger.

You could throw on the white collar thing and match the color of the hat and the shirt to make him look more like a stereotypical pilgrim.
