Hello Armor Gamers!

Fall has arrived and Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Now I know that Thanksgiving isn't celebrated everywhere, and is generally an American holiday. But c'mon, who can complain about good food and pies!?

You can submit your own original armatars to this thread following the theme of the fall season or Thanksgiving. If it meets our quality standards, 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. You can also check out a few select returning Thanksgiving armatars from 2009 in the 5AP section.

There are some guidelines, and unless your entry follows these set of rules it will not be accepted.

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 Fall or Thanksgiving themed.

Good luck! I look forward to seeing some creative new armatars! =)

Naw, the sizes don't match up. The tree needs to fill most of the background. Maybe you could show the nut sitting at the bottom of the trunk with a leaf beside it or something.

That looks really good, marioman. The only thing that bothers me about it is the two differently coloured leaves at the bottom. Shouldn't they be the same at the leaves on the tree?

I like yours marioman. It looks a little "Chrismasty", it's probably the tree.

Marioman, I like it but make the tree a tree that actually loses its leaves in the fall =P

I think that's due mostly to Carlie's inactivity the past couple of days. Oh, and the thread hasn't been receiving a whole lot of attention either.
