Hello Armor Gamers!

Welcome to the Winter Armatar Contest! This is not going to be restricted towards Christmas. Entries for other winter holiday celebrations are also encouraged! So if you celebrate Yule, Hanukkah, Christmas, etc., or just like snow, feel free to submit an armatar about it so long as it fits the winter holiday theme. This has a wide range of possibilities!

You can submit your own original armatars to this thread following the theme of the Winter. 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 Winter 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 Winter themed.

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

can anyone please tell me why this isn't working??

The code should be done in lowercase, and the file name is censored. Try renaming it, and use the lowercase code instead, and it should work.
Good works everyone.

You should rename the image from Elf "AG". Something like elfboy or elfboyAG. The current name will not work due to censorship.

I don't really see why the angel is winter/christmas themed, but it's pretty neat.

In the nativity story, after Jesus' birth, an angel went out to 3 shepherds and told them about it. Those shepherds then decided to go to Bethlehem to see the new king.

But yeah, angels don't play a huge role in christmas/winter (maybe snow angels though), but they are present in most Christian holidays.
