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 =)

Ok, so my uhm...armatar nominee didn't have a background, and I should've seen this coming..

Here's my nominee with an added background and a few additions:

and here's the image that comes with it:

I would like this selection to be my new choice

Do you mean nominee? Or submission? Did you originally make that armatar?

Yeah, the two that I submitted were all from me. But the first one I made didn't have a background, and the post above you does, so I would like that to be the submission.

I used mine with Paint, as basic as is possible =)

You need something to upload your picture on, so I used a photobucket account to do so. Then, give the link to AG, and the picture will show up! Simple =D

@Shintetsu:
It looks awesome, but it doesn't look square.

How would you make a picture?

Get a art programme, either use paint like Shintetsu did, or download gimp. Sit down, get an idea, draw.
Make an account on photobucket, upload the picture, take the DIRECT link and put it in the img code.
And you have submitted a picture.
