I'm sorry this vote is so late going up. The positive part of the delay is that you'll have a bit longer to work on the next challenge! We have some beautiful icons and we'll have some tough choices. Three skips were used this week.
RULES
  • Vote for 2 icons of least quality per challenge. Not which icons you like the least, just which ones have the lowest quality.
  • Give real/technical reasons (see how to vote tutorial)
  • Don't give personal reasons like; "I don't like the font", "I don't like the style" or "the coloring is boring". If you do your vote will not be counted.
  • Don't vote for yourself.
  • Also, vote for 2 favorite icon per challenge, the reason is not required.

    Share your alternates!

    Did you make an icon that you almost submitted for the first round? Now's your chance to share it with the rest of the community and get a feel for how people would have liked it. This has worked really well over at xf_lims, and I'm looking forward to how people like it here.

    RULES
  • ONE ICON ONLY.
  • LJ standards apply (e.g. must not exceed 100x100 pixels, or 40kb, .jpg .png or .gif format).
  • No animation allowed.
  • Brushes, textures etc are allowed.
  • Use only the images or links provided.
  • Comment with your entry as an image and with the URL link. Upload the image to tinypic.com or some other anonymous host so that your username is not visible in the URL.
  • Do not post your entries anywhere until the results are announced.

  • SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: This is a HUSH challenge. That means there should be no legible words on your icon. Tiny text used as brushes or textures are okay as long as they are not meant to be read. When in doubt, don't use words. This is a chance to really let your skills with crop, color, and textures shine!

    Thanks to everyone who voted for in the first round! We sadly had to say farewell to two great artists, but we also have two people's choice icons. I'm also trying something a little new this round. As seen in other LIMS communities, I'll shortly be posting a thread that will let people share their alternate icons. Not sure if you would have done better with a different crop or color?

    Challenge two will be up shortly!

    We have also affiliated with two great icon communities!

    ic_challenge is a multifandom icon community. It is on hiatus until September, when it will be back to regular challenges.
    lims_movie is a LIMS competition that focuses on a different movie each session. The first challenge for Alice in Wonderland is running until August 1st, so there is still time to join in the fun.

    Thanks so much to those of you who submitted icons. They are beautiful, and we'll have some tough choices. We'll be starting round 2 with almost twice the number of participants as we had at the beginning of round 1! Fabou! Thanks also for remembering to upload your icons with anonymous URLs!

    With such great turn-out, we'll be saying farewell to two artists at the end of the week. However, we will also have two member's choices!

    RULES
  • Vote for 2 icon of least quality. Not which icons you like the least, just which ones have the lowest quality.
  • Give real/technical reasons (see how to vote tutorial)
  • Don't give personal reasons like; "I don't like the font", "I don't like the style" or "the coloring is boring". If you do your vote will not be counted.
  • Don't vote for yourself.
  • Also, vote for 2 favorite icons, the reason is not required.

    Just a note for those of you who are waiting for the first challenge... I'm really hoping to start with 15 participants. At this point, I'll hold off one more week unless we get our last participant (in which case, the challenge will go up early).

    My thanks to all of you who have already signed up!
