Hello Armor Gamers!

Spring is finally here! And with the change of the seasons, so arrives the Spring Armatar Contest!

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

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

2 I heard that you get a merit if yours gets picked, is that true?


Various of them are picked to be in the Armatar Section.. but I think for this Thread there's a winner and he gets a Merit.

1 I want to make a couple of these and I want to know what I should use to make it.


Anything you feel like using. Ms Paint, GIMP, Photoshop.. Whatever. xD

I realize that and it scales down fine.


I think you missed part of my post:

You have to scale them down to 100x100.


Focus on the bold word...

There is no winner, because this isn't that type of "contest". You win if your armatar gets picked, but you don't get a merit for it.

Think of it this way, though: would you rather have 25 extra points, or an armatar that you drew yourself be available to 400,000 users?

I kind of liked the sun one, maybe if you make a sky background in it it would look better.
