The deadline for CHALLENGE 5 will be Friday, December 28 at 11:00PM EST. Please realize that because of the holiday season, we are extending this challenge ahead of time for a total of 2 weeks. Hopefully that will give you enough time to submit something! We also that you enjoy the holiday break as much as possible by making wonderful icons :3.

★ You should submit only one icon made from the image(s) provided; no other images may be used. Remember, you can use one image or even all of them in your icon! It's all up to you. Of course, you may also use brushes or textures.

★ As per LJ standards, all icons must be 100x100 and below 40K. Also, do not share your icons anywhere before the challenge is over, otherwise you will be disqualified. No telling people which one is yours either. D:

★ All comments will be screened. Submit your icons through this post, with the icon itself and its URL, like so:


http://userpic.livejournal.com/68343164/1030388

★ You may redo your icon if you're not happy with it, as long as your original comment was deleted and replaced with your new icon. It would be nice to let us know in your comment too! This must be done before the deadline.

★ If you want to skip this challenge, leave a comment saying "skip". Also, be warned that you will only have one skip throughout the entire first round.

★ If you have any questions, post it in the F.A.Q. entry here.

If you would like your critiques, please leave a comment with the number of your icon. We will reply with a list of all the good/bad crits you received. ALL REPLIES WILL BE SCREENED, so if you do not get comments e-mailed to you, tell us and we will leave the crits unscreened. Note: Some of the crits were VERY harsh. Do not ask for your critiques unless you're sure you can handle it. All crits will be kept 100% anonymous.

Voting wasn't posted last night (obviously), so here am I doing that now. Sorry for the incovenience!

I'd also like to note that you do not vote according to your own personal preferences. Saying that (for example) you're not a fan of b&w icons does not constitute as a vote & it will not be counted.

★ Voting for challenge 2-6 will end at December 16th, 2007 at 11:00 PM EST.

★ You are voting for 2 (TWO) icons of LESSER QUALITY to be eliminated, and 1 (ONE) icons that is YOUR FAVORITE for People's Choice awards. For the elimination icons, please judge based on overall technique and aesthetic quality, NOT personal preferences. We reserve the right to void any vote we feel is unfair or petty. You do not have to give a reason for your FAVORITE icon choices (though it is encouraged), but YOU MUST GIVE A REASON FOR YOUR ELIMINATIONS.

★ Do NOT vote for your own icons (for either category) and don't feel obligated to not vote for your friends' icons, etc. Keep things as objective as possible!

★ ANYONE CAN VOTE. You do not have to be a contestant or anything, so VOTE AWAY!

★ Here is an example vote for you to follow (2 eliminations, 1 favorites):
#101 - The excessive use of textures over-powers the icon.
#102 - The icon is too washed out overall.
Favorite - #104 because I love the cropping.

★ Finally, if you have any questions, post it in the F.A.Q. entry here.

HEY GUYS.

The reason results have not been posted yet was because have a three way tie that needs to be taken care of, so the voting period is being extended until we get enough votes to break it. :3;

So if you haven't voted already, please do so HERE!

Thanks~
