    Default Iron Avatarist - ANNOUNCEMENT AND RESULTS FOR LAST TWO CONTESTS

    Hello, avatarists, spectators, judges and all!

    It has been, over the course of the last two and a half years, my sincerest pleasure to have been put in charge of these wonderful contests known as Iron Avatarist that several of you love so much. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing what everyone comes up with every contest.

    Throughout my "reign" (yes, I shall call it a reign) I have worked with the help of a lot of you to try to make this contest the best I could make it. Special thanks to the lovely Serpentine for being my right-hand through it all.

    In an attempt to make the contest the best it can be, I have, after much consideration, come to the conclusion that it's time for me to step down from running these contests. I do not feel that I am the best man for the job anymore, and I think we need a fresh start to bring these contests back to life.

    Therefore, I will now hand the reins over to the next host of Iron Avatarist. After discussing a few possibilities, we decided to approach someone that I personally thought would be an excellent choice. So please give a warm welcome to the new host of Iron Avatarist:

    Crimmy!

    Now, I still have a responsibility to the old contests I haven't wrapped up, so I'm doing that now (and it is actually the reason why this announcement took so long). This post will include the results for Iron Avatarist - Monty Python and the Ministry of Silly Avatars and Iron Avatarist - Middle Earth Mania. The trophies for these two contests were also made by Crimmy (with a very tiny and negligible help from me in two of the trophies), so credit to him. Thanks, Crimmy!

    As for me: I'll still be around. Maybe I'll judge a contest or two, and maybe I will enter them. But I cannot continue to run these contests, and I truly think Crimmy will be a better man for the job.

    Without further ado, here are the results for the last two Angel-run Iron Avatarist contests.

    And with that, I make a small introductory speech... ahem:

    I'd really like to thank Haruki for this opportunity. I've always sticked close to the IA contests (or at least, ever since I joined the avataring community) and I've had many ideas for competitions, some bad, and some worse (heh ). I've been there as contestant, judge, and now as helmsman. It's not enough to say I'm kinda nervous (I'm actually petrified with fear) as I know this is a great challenge, and I applaud Haruki for leading us for these past 2 and a half years.

    Theres much I'd like to say, but alas! Time runs short, so I will finish this small statement with an awesome "Thank you, Haruki!" (picture rainbows, some fireworks, stars and a bald eagle flying over a nightsky full of stars and supernovas) and a most anxious "The contest is back!".

    It's a pity that you, Ruki, had to leave, but you picked a very worthy substitute. Thank you.

    Hey Crimmy, thanks for taking over and ushering in a new era. I am excited to see what you'll bring to the screen. When's the next contest?

    Next Sunday, the new IA will come. Be ready for excitement!

    (It may or may not have to do with the picture I shared at the Showcase thread. Muahahahahah! )

    I'll do my best I'm not the best (or anywhere near the top), but it sounds fun and it's worth a shot!
