WEEK FOUR SUBMISSIONS POST



OKAY, so last challenge was probably a little obscure, so to make ammends, here's the theme you've all been waiting for--

Theme: Villains!

This is pretty straight forward, yeah? I'm not fussy with who you consider a villain, from the Joker to Jean Loring (what character bias?) - so long as you don't try and turn the theme "villain" into "characters I dislike", ie. I don't know, Batman (what character bias?!), you should be fine. Characters that back-and-forth between being good guys and bad guys are also accepted, eg. Catwoman.

Also, just for the record, non-DC/Marvel icons are more than acceptable, too!


After considering the results of this poll, I've decided that each iconist will only be allowed to place once, and if they are to receive enough votes to place a second time, the entrant with the next highest score will place, instead. I hope the majority thinks this is fair? At this stage, I'm still leaving the rule as unlimited submissions simply because I love seeing what you guys churn out, pretty much. :$.

EDIT Iconists whom place overall will still be able to place in any special categories!


Example Submission

Character: Harley Quinn

(Already posted. Disqualified.)

As mentioned above, there is no limit to the number of icons you can submit for this challenge!

WEEK THREE VOTING POST


*BAM!*, time to vote! Unlike many awards communities, the order in which you cast your votes will make a difference, eg.

First Place: three points
Second Place: two points
Third Place: one point

...and the winners will be worked out as such. Once again, a special category will be included this week.

This Week's Special Category: Strangest Sound (that is, more like the sound you'd be least likely to hear, realistically.)

^ This special category will only receive one point, which will not contribute towards overall voting. You may vote for icons in this category as well as overall.

Obviously, voting for yourself is taboo and won't be counted; you won't get to revote, either.
Comments are screened.

Note: Thank you so much to everyone who responded to the poll - these opinions will be taken into consideration, and any and all changes made will be instigated next round. :)

VOTING IS CLOSED.


*BAM!*, *POW!*, *ZAP!*, etc.Collapse )


Again, if I've somehow managed to miss an entry of yours, feel free to *SNIKT* me and I'll fix that right up!

Next week's theme, villains is up, now! Enter. ...and that's not a request. >:D

Poll #1477323 Challenge Winners

Do you think that individual icon-makers should be limited to placing only once per challenge?

Yes, I think this would promote more participation and make for a happier majority.
12(63.2%)
No, if an icon-maker is that talented, they deserve to place however many times they place.
5(26.3%)
Undecided. (Please, feel free to discuss in the comments!)
2(10.5%)


Would be really interested to hear your opinions on this. Personally, I'm partial to option A - I think it'd make the community a lot more fun and user-friendly, if a greater variety of people got to win, more often. Self esteem, A+.

Also, sadface, at the moment, whilst they're gorgeous entries, we only have three entrants for our current theme, Sound Effects, so if you'd be willing to enter here, I promise to offer a lot more exciting themes in the future. :Db

WEEK TWO RESULTS POST


Very close, again, oh my Gods. :| I'm considering putting a limit on the number of entries one can submit, participation has been just that outstanding. Congratulations to the winners - I want you guys on my Zombie Survival Team come Zombie Apocalypse. :)b

Survivors of Z-Day.Collapse )

Great job, everyone, thank you for voting and participating, now hurry up and enter some Sound Effects! *SMACK*

I'm slightly apprehensive about the participation we'll get for this challenge, but I figured this would be something you could be fairly creative with.

Theme: Sound Effects

Each icon you submit must have a visible/legible sound effect on it (eg. BAM!, POW!, etc). The sound effect must be present in the original art - no superimposing sound effects onto images that would otherwise be without. Also, make sure that you submit your icons like the example below. It's just much easier to keep track of everything this way.

Speech bubbles/dialogue do not count.

Example Submission

Character: Batgirl
Sound Effect: "CRASH"

There is no limit to the number of icons you can submit for this challenge!

WEEK TWO VOTING POST


(Sorry this is late - your mod is a drunkard. :/)

37 entries - wow! Okay, with that in mind, I'm asking that you vote for your top five icons, as opposed to three; there are just so many, I figure it'll be easier to establish a winner this way. Thank you so much for participating in our first theme, heroes. Now the fun starts - voting! Unlike many awards communities, the order in which you cast your votes will make a difference, eg.

First Place: five points
Second Place: four points
Third Place: three point
Fourth Place: two points
Fifth Place: one point

...and the winners will be worked out as such.

This Week's Special Category: Icon You'd Least Like To Find Yourself With Down A Dark Alley
Scariest Icon (not scariest character, scariest icon.)

^ This special category will only receive one point, which will not contribute towards overall voting. You may vote for icons in this category as well as overall.

Voting for yourself is a no-go and will result in head-gnawing and won't be counted; you won't get to revote, either. Also! I realise there's a definite Marvel Zombies vs. Blackest Night divide, so please keep in mind that we're voting on icon quality, not character/series preference.

Comments are screened.

VOTING IS CLOSED.


Happy voting!

You've Got Red On You. :|Collapse )


If, somehow, I've missed any entries out, call me a douchebag and skip my BRAINZ - they probably wouldn't make for much of a meal, anyway. :/

Our next challenge, Sound Effects, is up now!

WEEK ONE RESULTS POST


So the votes are in! It was incredibly close; pretty sure every icon got at least one vote. I decided not to have a tie-breaker and settle for having two third's - there were so many entries, I think the more recognition they get, the better. Anyway, with no further ado, the results.

Our Most Heroic Entries.Collapse )

Congrats to all our winners,
Now, get your asses over to our current challenge - Zombies!

WEEK TWO SUBMISSIONS POST


In the spirit of Halloween, I thought we'd try this one on for size. :)

Theme: Zombies

This includes your Marvel Zombies, Black Lanterns, The Walking Dead, re-animated Compound-V users, etc! Even Deadpool's severed AU!head. This does not include... Not zombies. :/ Other, live characters may appear in your icons; however, the zombie(s) is/are to be the central focus. Fanart will be accepted.

Example Submission

Character: Wonder Woman

(Wonder Woman =/= a zombie. Disqualified.)
