What’s this!?! A new contest! And you thought that we mods had forgotten about you. ^_^ Sorry about the hiatus, but life’s been rough lately for us mods. My laptop died about three months ago, and I’ve only now been able to get a new one. But that’s ok, because now Merlin is back and he’s ready to give you guys a new challenge!

Theme: Makings of a True Hero
Directions: What is the making of a true hero, you ask? Why, it’s the Sidekick! You can’t be a good hero without your trusty sidekick! So, while we Americans are celebrating our heroes, I’ve decided to let the sidekicks have the spotlight for once. Your challenge is simple. Create an icon featuring a sidekick. The hero may be included, but the emphasis must be on the sidekick. Please understand that all icons are up to my discretion. If I think you’ve missed the theme, I will let you know.
Entries: Text is allowed, blending is allowed! No animations. You may enter THREE (3) icons. ^_^

Character: King Triton
Directions: For being the Sea King he sure doesn’t get much icon love. ^_^ Well, I’m here to fix that! Your Profile challenge this week is to create an icon featuring King Triton, using one of the three caps provided. ^_^

Mysterious Caps BelowCollapse )

Entries: Same rules as above. Text and blending of the three above pictures only is allowed. However you may only enter TWO (2) icons for the character challenge.

Overall Rules:
*All icons must be new! As in they can not be any more than SEVEN (7) days old.
*DO NOT display your icons ANYWHERE until winners have been announced.
*All icons must fit LJ standards (no more than 100x100 pixels, no more than 40kb)
*You do not have to enter both challenges.
*Please specify which challenge your icon is for.
*Deadline for entries is the stroke of midnight (Eastern Time) Saturday, July 7th, 2007.
*Don't hesitate to ask questions. ^_^
*Have fun! ^_^

Also, with getting a new computer, I unfortunately lost my Photoshop, so I will not be able to make banners. If someone would be willing, I would appreciate it. ^_^ Thanks again!

This should have gone up last week but I forgot *head desk* anyway, better late than never, right?

Theme: Four
Directions: Take this theme as you like, as long as there is something to do with the number four in it. Like four legs, four characters, four dancing plates, some kind of lyrics with "four" in. But no cheating and just writing "four" or "4" on the icon. Be creative! Ask questions if you're unsure of anything.
Entries: You may enter up to three icons. Text, blending is allowed. No animations!

Character Profile: Merriweather
Entries: You may enter up to two icons. Anything goes as long as you use the provided caps!

Submit your icon(s) and its URL to this post. Make sure to add in your comment which challenge the icons are for. All comments are screened.

Deadline: The deadline is Saturday, 31st March 5pm AWDST for both challenges.

I know I still have banners to make and they're ... coming. I'm not sure when though, because I formatted my computer a couple of weeks ago, and my external drive (that had all my backups on, including my icon stuff!) got corrupted. Lovely. So I need to rebuild all my stuff back up *sigh*

// ALL icons must be new and made specifically for these challenges.
// Icons must fit LJ standards (<=40kb; <=100x100 pixels; .jpg, .png, .gif.)
// All icons must remain anonymous until voting has closed and the winners have been posted.
// Entering both challenges is optional.

Theme: Power
Directions: It's a very general term so I'm going to be pretty lax about what goes. Power could be electricity (no icons of tv sets though.. i need to see the power/electricity), it could be super powers (those need to be in effect. violet with her bubble on == a-okay), or any number of other things.
Entries: You may enter up to three icons this week. Anything goes.

Character Profile: Violet Parr from the incredibles
Entries: You may enter up to two (2) icons.
