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 =)

@kingryan, it looks a little red. The bone is pink and the skin is a deep red color.

You should smooth en it a little more and use different colors to blend in with it to make it look more realistic and some shadings on the edges. Other then, it looks good.

But I made a pretty awesome capricorn [...]

No. You didn't.
It's a pretty awesome cornucopia.

I want to see some pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce. There don't seem to be as many entries as for the Halloween Armatar contest.

Pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce are plain. Draw an orange pie and a red jelly with a can shape, that's fun.

I hate being colourblind! I'll try and fix it...*shudders*

I'll try...Once again...colourblindness doesnt help!

It is GIMP...I just suck at it so much...

Sure I will be sure to let you know. I had a picture I made for the Marines in a game a while back I don't know if I still have it but that would be way to big. In my opinion a few symbol armatars would be good.

No turkey? I'm sorry man. I hope you still have a great Thanksgiving though

Well, I've said it 3 times, but all you have to do is use a image creation place, like Paint, or GIMP, whichever, then create the image with your ideas. Then use something like a photobucket account and upload the image here in link form.

As to when I will start uploading them: when we get more entries!

I hope to see some more high quality entries before adding them, just so that we can start off with a good choice of armatars. So far, not a whole lot of submissions have been posted.
