Forums → Art, Music, and Writing → [Closed][Official] Armor Games' Armatar Contest: WINTER HOLIDAYS!
After a nice turkey and pie dinner... *brp* ...ooopss... (oO) ...gosh, I was so busy eating turkey, I almost forgot to launch the next Armatar Contest!! Sorry for that everyone!! ...ahem, right... Sooo, the next stop, and this is the last, ultimate, final one (orrr... is it?! Ho Ho Ho...), in the Armor Games' Armatar Contest Editions for 2016... *clears throat* ...dumdummm... sing along everybody!!
Yes! It's time to dress for the cold and have those wonderful snowball fights , make your own snowman , decorate the Christmas tree , wonder what Santa's going to bring you , prepare your Fireworks and stock up on Champagne! This Winter Edition will behold every theme during the Winter Holidays, which means Winter Holidays (duh), Christmas, New Year, Chanoeka, Sinterklaas, you name it! BUT... FIRST, we need you to make some excellent art for the Armatar Contest! The rules never changed! Here they are once more...
ARMATAR CONTEST GUIDELINES :
ne: All entries must be appropriate. They cannot be offensive or profane in nature. Keep it clean!
The entry must be square and at least 512x512 pixels in dimension.
Your entry must scale down well to 100x100. So if it looks good in its larger form, make sure that it will still look good when it is scaled down to the armatar size. Here are a few suggestions about this :
Sometimes keeping it simple is better. If you go into a lot of detail, it might not look as great when you scale it down. So keep in mind what the Armatar size will be and check often how it looks when it is scaled down.
Remember to save a lot while you are making it! Better to delete 20 -in between made- save files later on, than ending up with a finished piece you don't like or an end result that is showing up blurred when scaled down...
If you are able to do vector, by all means! That can help with the sharpness of the image. However, since they are small in Armatar size, this is probably not a big issue.
All entries must be fitting to the current contest's theme. If a certain entry is debatable to whatever extend, a Mod or Admin will give the decisive and final ruling for submission.
An entry must be completely original. You cannot use entire (or even elements from) pieces of artwork made by someone else, the entire armatar must be 100% created by you! A Moderator can ask you to provide conclusive proof that the entry was created by you entirely and you are obligated to provide this when asked for.
Plagiarism will not only exclude your submission by means of disqualification, it will also exclude you from participation in any future contests AND will have further consequences!
CLOSING DATE OF THIS CONTEST :
This Contest will be held untill 01/07/2018, so there's more than enough time for you to enter your artwork!
WINNING SUBMISSIONS :
Every participant of an official edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest receives a well deserved Merit for submitting one -or more- entries to every separate edition held. This means a maximum of one Merit per participant, per edition. (Note: Your entry needs to be according to the contest rules and has to be chosen for uploading to be valid.)
Alongside this Merit for your participation, we have a special non-game Quest to award for the winning submissions of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest! This special Armatar Creator Quest will be bestowed upon the creators of the winning entries that were chosen for every contest held. The winners will receive this Quest to show our appreciation for their outstanding work. Wear this Quest with pride!
Winners will be chosen after the edition is officially closed;
The winning entries are non-debatable, results are final;
The Armatar Creator Quest can only be awarded once per user. If a particular user wins another edition, they will not receive this Quest again, as Quests can not be achieved a second time;
As a special appreciation for their outstanding work, all the winners and their winning entries of every edition will be placed into the Armatar Creator Quest Winners Hall of Fame!
Allright! Now grab your pencils and paper, and/or your mouse, and start making your wonderful original works of art! As always... be creative and amaze us! =)
Right, that's that... now, where's my hot coco? Ah! *blows* ...hmmmm... Yumm! ^^

[NOTE] The contest is now officially closed for entries. I will make the winner announcement asap, but grant me some time as I am currently a little under the weather...
No worries, just take your time when you're feeling better
I've noticed a whole bunch of people sick recently...
It must be an alien signal causing sickness in humans around the world
I can not access any games on your site they show me sitelocked on the game screen.
Hope you feel better @MrDayCee no rush! Great work everyone
Can't wait until the next one!
Thanx @snoboxstudio ! It took me over a week, but I'm back!
And it's time to announce the winners of this edition of the Armor Games' Armatar Contest!
Trouble is... I can't pick a winner in this edition!!
Forgive me, but... all entries were great!
Why do you guys make it so hard for me to judge...?
So I decided, as a gesture for slacking in making these announcements, everyone is declared the winner! Call it a late Christmas present from me...
Congratz everyone! Now stay tuned for a new edition coming soon!
@huwbert2013 I am feeling better. Thanx!
@PLGuy FYI: Your v2. version of your 'Christmas Owly' has been deleted and your v3. version has been made available.
That's a christmas gift for everybody, no worries @MrDayCee, you were sick and RL is always more important than a virtual life. Good to know you're feeling better. But thanks anyways for everybody behind the curtains making this site great! Can't wait to participate in the future drawing contests!
In my hurry, I typed the wrong username... for real this time: thanx @huwbert2013 , I'm feeling better again!
And thanx for the kind words @PHLHimself !
