Hello Armor Gamers!

It's that time again! Summer is here and it is time for a new armatar contest! So how this works is that you can submit your own original armatars to this thread following the theme of Summer. If I like it, I will add it to the 1AP armatar section for all members to use! You can reference previous contests for a better idea of what this is all about here.

Keep in mind that there are some guidelines, and unless your entry follows these set of rules it will not be accepted. So be sure to check those out.

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 summer themed.

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

I can't resize it though...


Why not? Links of sites where you can do so have been provided by other users.

And awesome work! I wonder if it will look as good when it is resised to fit.

I know it's not very... good... or anatomically correct for a manta ray... But I'm really only good when I'm working with a pencil and paper.

And even then...

I really only did this one for my sake.

Here's the original "Bigified" image:

DiGiorno, you need to upload it to photobucket than post it as a url.

And crimson, that's a nice blend of colors you got there. Maybe too blended...

DiGiorno you need to post the a url from a image hosting site in between the BB code tags. Here is a quick guide on how to do so.

BB Code Image Guide

Also for the people commenting about my image thanks. I spent the last 3 hours working on it, and used a guide to help create the water. I used a brush I made myself, and a custom star brush to make the Sun. Also as far as the color blending is concerned. Its just the color orange, a soft circle brush and some changes in opacity between layers. Nothing too hard, but it too some time to get right for me.

I used MS paint, since GIMP was acting up.
