    furious Iron Avatarist: Art of WAR

    Welcome to a new era of...
    Iron Avatarist

    The judges in this Iron Avatarist contest...


    (Oblivion/Serpentine/Kwarkpudding/Dogmantra)
    (Final lineup subject to change - If any of you want to draw instead just let me know!)

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    Our theme this month is...
    Art of WAR

    War? HUH! What is it good for? Drawings!
    Conflict and struggle, for sport or dominance, survival or blood lust, lets see it in stick form. All war is up for grabs, any era, any combatant, or a mix of both. Everybody was kung fu fighting!

    Remember: All artwork must be your own. Do not take, alter, or use any of the The Giant's art. Thanks.

    Categories
    There will be a First through Third place award for each of the following:

    Best Warrior (any avatar-sized character)
    Best OotS Warrior (any avatar sized, Order of the Stick/D&D based submission)
    Best Opponents (any two beings locked in combat)
    Best Battle Scene (anything larger than the above)
    Best Rookie Entry (if this is your first contest all your entries automatically fall under this category, along with the main category)
    And, as always, the Best Overall award.

    I'll also voice my opinion on which entry is the most kick-awesome in the form of a VT's Choice Award, which may be anything that tickles my fancy or was shamelessly tailored to my tastes (I approve of shamelessessness).

    Rules
    1. Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.

    2. Every entry must include an itallic introduction as to what your entry is.

    For example:
    Best Opponents
    Yoda versus Hitler
    <image>

    3. Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.

    4. All entries must be posted by June 30th at Noon Eastern Standard Time.

    Good luck!


    Edit: Notice

    Ok, been messaging a few, but for those of you who are planning to submit, a Warrior is not just an adventurer that just happens to be wielding a weapon, a monster, or someone making a face.

    I didn't want to draw that line, but unless I do any drawing is being submitted as 'a warrior'. The glow of enlightenment becomes an aura of holy smiting. A kiss becomes blood sucking. A hand raised in greeting a fist raised in victory. A bratty kid scowling can kill with his gaze.

    No.

    If it wasn't intended originally as a warrior or engaged in combat, it doesn't become so by entering it here. Now, if you like, feel free to alter it slightly to make it so. I have absolutely no problem with that.

    Hope I'm not taking too much fun out of this, but we needed parameters.

    Does it have to be a war in armies? Or can it be like two super-powered like people fighting and whatever?

    The rules state it can be any battle between more than one person.

    Although I assume a clone war is allowed as well.
    Blogging is beneath me.

    Hence it's here in my sig.

    Any kind of battle you like.

    That's why we have 3 basic categories.

    Single Warrior.

    Battle (more than 2).

    Please put the categories and titles on every entry.
    And a reminder: avoid spoilers. Some screen stretching is preferable to spoilers. If it's so big that the stretching is extreme, consider reshaping or shrinking it.
    While I'm at it: don't quote images.

    It should be "Don't say another word or I'll Splinter Weapon/Barrage your face."
