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 =)

@ Zlith: Perhaps it is in your little world, but in my completely gramatically and linguistically correct realm, it has an ie.

But, hey, whatever floats your boat. :P

Pretty nice, Papi. The background's cool.

...It seems no one ever reads the guide...oh well I will fix this for you. You do not need the HTML tags but just the URL and BB code tags.

I already supplied a link to the image part of my guide on the last page. I'm not sure what more I can do.

Alright, I have a problem. I have been trying to add an image I made on Gimp to my photobucket. It's will not upload, I tried a .png and .jpg but still, won't go... Any suggestions?

My world is actually infinity big. I just sit in the center and lose to myself in checkers...with all the black pieces gone...and without a game board.

@zilth: Sound's like fun.

@Perslos: *scratches head* Huh... Never had this problem. Did you drag the image into the upload box, or did you click the button and select the file?

I went to File and clicked Save as. I saved it first as a .jpg and then as a .png. And as I said, neither worked, it's not too good anyways, but it is sort of aggravating. My first experience with GIMP is not a good one.

@Zlith: Sounds like my vacation to New Jersey.

@AG_King: Nice. A kitty-sun. That also reminds me of my vacation to New Jersey.

I don't think it goes by entries and winners. If I am correcy, you can have more then 1 in it, by reading the OP.

I had the same issue when I first got GIMP. I think the issue is that with GIMP you need to type the file type at the end of the name of the image because it does not save the file type for you. Did you try that?

Thanks Crimson. I need to fix it up to make it more square though. And more colour for effect and such. Just what I have for now.

That is correct, but I get the feeling he doesn't want the other one to become an armatar as well.
