Yep, here we finally go with voting! :D We've got 9 lovely icons to pick from, and while I might ordinarily wait for ten - because that's kind of my personal limit on when a theme should be extended, if there are less than ten submissions - as you've probably noticed it's been a struggle for us to get beyond even two participants, so I'm just going to take what I can get and be bouncy and happy and pleased with what we've got. :)

Thanks so much to those who entered! I'll have the next challenge up tomorrow, and don't worry - it will be less difficult, I promise. ;)

RULES
+ Choose only six icons (for first, second and third place, plus the special categories).
+ Fill out the entire voting form.
+ If you entered icon(s), you must vote. Failure to vote may result in the entry or entries being disqualified.
+ Do not vote for one icon more than three times.
+ Do NOT vote for yourself.
+ Deadline to vote is Tuesday, December 8 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
+ Please copy the following in a comment and vote accordingly:

Small extension! Very small, just until this Sunday, December 6th at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. We have 8 icons entered, and I'll hold voting with that if I really need to just because I don't want to cancel the challenge completely, but I thought maybe giving you guys a weekend, just in case you can squeeze out a few more entries, might be a good idea. Go to it, and if you can't, that's okay too. Just putting this out there. ;)

Icons can be submitted to THIS POST. Thanks! :D

Yep, 'tis that time of the week again, wherein I poke you folks gently and nicely to jog your memories about the current challenge. :D We're doing slightly better since our extension, with 8 icons entered by two people, but ... still not enough to really hold voting with. It's a busy season for a lot of us, I know - I'm only just catching up on a bunch of commitments that I had to let slide while work buried me up to the neck - but if you do have just a few seconds to yourself, why not fiddle with Photoshop or your image-editing program of choice a little and create some pretties for this challenge? It's a little more difficult than some of the other ones we've had here - which would be why they're called challenges. Hehe. Wouldn't be any fun if they were easy all the time! ;) Anyway, entries are due this Friday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. EST. I'm afraid that is kind of a firm date, as I really don't wish to extend for a third week. >.>

Icons can be submitted to THIS POST when ready. Thanks in advance! :)

It's been a busy week for a lot of us, myself, included, and it kinda showed in our lack of entries. >.> Don't worry, I understand completely - but I will need to extend the challenge, to next Friday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. We only have 4 icons submitted by one person as I type this, which is obviously not enough to hold voting with, so here's hoping real life will be a little less rough for everyone next week and we can get some more! :D

Entries can be submitted in a comment to THIS POST when ready. Thanks! :)

Happy Wednesday, everyone! And an early happy Thanksgiving to all our members in the U.S.! Hope you'll be having an awesome one. :) Before I let you go stuff yourselves with turkey, though, I have to remind you that icons for Challenge #76 are due this Friday, November 27 at 10:00 p.m. EST. We have zero icons submitted at the moment, which kind of makes me a sad panda, but hopefully things will pick up soon? I'd really love to see some pretties if at all possible. ;)

You can enter icons to THIS POST when ready. Thank you so much in advance! :D
 
 
 
I want to stress upfront that this challenge has very little to do with the release of the new Twilight movie - it's total coincidence that I picked this particular theme a couple days after the movie came out. Heh. Anyway, I hope you'll all take the theme for the artistic challenge it is, rather than as an intentional nod to Twilight. ;)

The original idea actually comes from a 2007 padanistillness challenge, and I thought it sounded really cool. :D Basically, you make an icon that somehow conveys the theme of "shine, shimmer and/or sparkle." The theme could be communicated through text, brushes, textures, or whatever means you so choose, as long as the sparkles are a) easily visible and b) not animated. Beyond that, go absolutely nuts, and if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask! :)

RULES
+ You may submit up to four icons only.
+ Obi-Wan and Padmé must appear in the icon.
+ Your icon(s) must convey the theme of "shine, shimmer and/or sparkle." It is up to you how you choose to do this, whether through textures, brushes or text, but the theme must be evident.
+ Comment with both the icon and its URL.
+ The due date is Friday, November 27 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

ENTRIES: 09

Got an idea for a future challenge? Awesome! Submit it to the suggestion post and it will be used in the weeks ahead.

All icons submitted to Challenge #75 are under the cut, along with the artists' names. Simply write a comment with the number(s) of the icon(s) you're snagging. Be sure to right-click and save, because hotlinking is evil, steals bandwidth and may lead you to the Dark Side. ;) Artists, feel free to check this post every so often if you'd like to know who's snagging your icons. :)

Finally, hey? ;) My schedule has been all over the map this past week, and unfortunately it didn't coincide very well with the one this comm has been keeping. I'm going to rectify that with the next theme, which should post immediately after the snag and credit entry goes up. Otherwise I can only offer my apologies (again, ugh) for being such a horrible mod. November has not been a great month, to say the very least. >.>

Here at last are the winners of Challenge #75. Banners to be posted this week by ilovedrwilson. :)

THE ENVELOPE, PLEASECollapse )

Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks to everyone who entered and voted! Thanks also, as ever, for your eternal patience with me. I most certainly don't deserve it. >.> Snag and credit post and the next challenge will be up in a few moments, as I mentioned.

Thanks so much for the late rally, guys!! I wasn't sure whether I should extend on Sunday, and was even kind of wondering afterwards whether I'd made the wrong decision, but since we now have 18 great icons to pick from I think I can emphatically say that I did the right thing. :D Thank you again, and let's get right to it! :)

+ Choose only six icons (for first, second and third place, plus the special categories).
