Challenge 169

Themes for this challenge are:

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Jensen Ackles
Thandie Newton
stock: sunrises and sunsets
Smallville [as suggested by americangrl69]

Deadline is Tuesday, May 28, 8 PM GMT.


Rules and info:

  • You can enter up to 5 icons.

  • You can icon as many themes as you want (all icons with the same theme, one icon per theme, or anything in between).

  • You can only use the pictures provided.

  • You can reuse pictures if you want to, but don't submit alternate versions of the same icon, for example text/textless or color/black&white.

  • Text, textures, brushes and all other effects are allowed. Animation and blending (within the same theme!) are allowed too, as long as you use only the pictures provided.

  • All icons must be 100x100 px or less, and 40 KB or less.

  • No premade icons. All icons must be made for this challenge and can't posted anywhere else before the winners are announced.

  • Not a rule, just a suggestion: For better quality save your icons as .png rather than .jpg.

  • Submit your icon(s) as a comment to this post. Comments are screened.

  • You can change your entry or add more icons (up to 5) until the deadline. Just edit your comment, or post a new comment and delete the old one.

  • Submit your icon(s) as both the image and the URL. If you're unfamiliar with html you can copy this code, and replace URL with the direct link to your icon:

  • By entering this challenge you decide which themes will continue for the next challenge(s). 2 themes that get the most entries will appear again in the next challenge, with different pictures every time. The other 3 themes will be replaced by new themes I choose. (Feel free to suggest new themes here.)

  • It doesn't matter for a theme whether its icons win/place or not, it only matters how many entries there were.

  • I don't enter, so there's no bias. Before the voting is posted no participant knows how many icons for a theme have already been submitted.

  • If there is a theme you want to continue, and you know people who like that theme too, you are allowed (and encouraged) to let them know about the challenge and ask them to enter. The more entries the merrier! :)

  • Using a "sock puppet" account to make a theme win - or for any other reason - is not allowed. Asking other people to help your icons win is obviously not allowed either.

  • Let me know if anything is wrong or unclear, or if you have any questions or comments. :)

Theme titles above the pictures are wiki links. Of course in some cases it's obvious who/what the subject is, but they will still be there.

Since photobucket has been wonky recently, HERE is also the direct link to the gallery.
