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 one week after the holiday season: 01/07/2017, 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.

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! ^^

@SirLegendary Great tree you've got there. I won't be making armatars for some time. I have to find new drawing software.

All additional entries have been uploaded and made available for chosing!

@Swarmlord2 I've uploaded your entry, allthough the drawing becomes quite unreadable when sized down to Armatar versions... just so you know. Hand drawn images are always something I enjoy seeing submitted, but if they do not have strong outlining, it often blends into a blur of colors as an en result. Perhaps a tip for the future?

@SSOAmelia I've taken the liberty of cropping your image, instead of resizing it the way @Last4Skull did (no offense L4S!), and uploaded it that way, ok?

@SirLegendary I don't mind and nice drawing! I've made it available for chosing! Thanx!

@BalkanRenegades Nooooooo... wait a bit! Please? There's something coming you may want to participate in... trust me!

@MrDayCee To be honest, I was expecting to be completely excluded. I could try to go over the edges with a ballpoint pen and re-upload. Would that be better?
