So, it has been suggested someone mad a free-for-all armatar contest.
Now, considering there is no prize, and the armatars won't be chosen, I will rather consider it a challenge on fitting a piece of art into a 100x100 square.

Guidelines be stolen from the official AC:
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.

Obviously it will be a good idea to pot a bigger version as well, either 200x200 or 300x300.
And keep to the rules of site.

The theme will be winter for now, might change it in a week's time for fun.
Go nuts.

Theme: Winter
Deadline: The end of this month

No, I drew the background, then recoloured some clipart. I cheated.

I will do one with my own drawing though, I just wanted to get a sort of entry in so I didn't let Cenere down, he's been good enough to get this thread up which is jolly decent of him!

I didn't really want to make an account. I might make one.

Do you have to draw it yourself?

Shame on you, Pikachu!

Yes. If you didn't have to, this wouldn't be in the AMW forum.

I use CorelDRAW because I work mainly in vectors, I find it quicker and easier for most things.

Shame on you, Pikachu!


I know But at the very least, I'm completely honest about it rather than trying to pass it off as my own. And besides, my own artwork will be far more awesome, working on it now

Oh my, I think I just used the word awesome. What is happening to me!?!

It is still art. And I would change the coloring or the shading to make it my own. That way I am not breaking any copyright laws.

Shakes head pretending that he has heard of CorelDRAW.

It's just a vector program, nothing special, but I've used it for about 15 or 20 years. Quite useful for throwing ideas together quickly, but powerful enough to do professional quality graphics as long as they're primarily vector-based.

I'm working on an ice dragon, but more than happy to do a husky version that is all my own work if you like?
