leeeeeeeeeroy jeeeeenkiiiiiins
I realize there's no round going right now but sometimes you just have to pimp.

Series and category nominations are now open!

The icons this week were amazing, and we were impressed that people could pick favourites at all. ♥ Overall, this round was really amazing, and thanks to all of you who participated for making it so. We loved seeing all the icons (before anyone else did xD) and I hope everyone else had fun too.

THE WINNERCollapse )


If you'd like your critiques, please leave a comment. Because of the way we did voting there's only negative crits with this round, though, just as a note.

Congratulations guys!

because i'm chuck bass
Voting closes in less than 24 hours and we have 3 votes. I was hoping to get at the very least 7-10 so we could really use your help. Would you want to win by one vote when only three people voted? Probably not. :\

So give us a hand and vote for the Last Icon Maker Standing!

The 6 icons behind the cut symbolize the end of the road, this is the final battle! Voting will be a little different this week since we're changing things up a little but don't worry, it won't be a mind-blowingly hard-to-understand change.

We're going to ask you for your favorite icon from each set and give us a little explanation of why you didn't think the other icon deserved your vote. And we'll also ask you to choose your favorite set as a whole (no critique needed.) If that sounds a little funky, feel free to use the voting table below.

VOTING TABLE: (In case the instructions still sound wonky.)

Please give us your votes by Sunday, August 30th at 5pm PST. You are not required to vote but the more votes the better. As a reminder, you do not have to be a part of the contest to vote!


Edit: PS! Sign-ups close tomorrow on vg_battle! So if this round ending here has you down, there's still more video-game-icon-contest-action to get in on over there.

may the bridges i burn light the way
It's the last mid-week reminder of the round! ;_____; Though I'd bet you guys already know icons are due on Friday, I usually spend forever perfecting my final icons, too. XD

Good luck to the both of you! ♥

And if anyone would like to check out other icontests running/starting, check out ff20in20! They're finishing up the voting for this round (SO YOU SHOULD VOTE!) and sign ups are still open for the next month (and there are some really big names in there, guys!)

That sure is a mouthful, isn't it? But RSENFF just doesn't roll off the tongue. This week is going to be a little different because since it's the FINAL COUNTDOOOOOOOOWN final challenge we have to give you something... Challenging.

TRIFECTA!!! Yep. Three icons this week. Because we're assholes. :D (We weren't sure if asking for three icons in one week was too much so let us know if one week isn't enough time. We were kinda unsure on it.) Your icons will still fall into the general theme of the week but each one will have it's own specific theme to go along with it, I told you we're assholes. XD

Provided Image: Your first icon will be a given image, you can crop it however you'd like but it must be the image we've provided. Your image comes from The World Ends With You: HERE.

Negative Space: You can use any image (so long as it fits in the general theme) but your subject can only fill up to 50% of your icon, meaning you must also have at least 50% negative space. That negative space could take the form of background imagery, a texture, stock background or anything else you'd like so long as it's at least 50% of the icon.

Texture Usage: Again, you can use any image you'd like (fitting the theme, of course) but you must use a visible texture (or textures). And we don't mean "a grain texture at 10% opacity", we want to know you're using a texture. For example, this icon by powercorrupts or this icon by yours truly would be visible texture use.

Suggested Galleries: last remnant concept art, infinite undiscovery. the world ends with you, star ocean: the last hope.

Games That Qualify: Nier, Dragon Quest X, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, The Last Remnant, Infinite Undiscovery, The World Ends With You. There are probably others so if there's something you don't see on the list, just ask us.

As a reminder, you are not required to use these images. If you know of a better gallery or have a different picture in mind, feel free to use it. Just make sure the image fits the theme of the week.

Icons are due by Friday August 28sth at 5pm PST. Any submissions entered after that will not be taken. If you do not submit, you are disqualified. (Which would suck because that would default the other person as the WINNER.) Please remember that if you will be unavailable for a challenge to let us know in advance, if you contact us before a challenge goes up we will give you the theme and images but it must be before the challenge is posted.

mod's pick: special mod's pick for this weekCollapse )


If you'd like your critiques, please leave a comment. Again, we do not censor critiques. If you don't think you can handle your crits, you do not have to ask for them.

OMG we're almost at the final round guys. Are you excited?

As a note, we've been low on votes lately. With so few icons, every vote shifts the balance. The more there are, the more stable of results we get. So please, even if you've been elimmed, vote! You're the ones who decide who wins this, after all!

We've got 3 submissions this week.

This week we'll need you to pick your 1 least favorite icon and give us a little explanation why you don't think they should go on to the next round. We'd also like you to pick your 1 favorite icon, if you'd like to say why those were your favorites, you are also welcome to do so. (General critiques are also welcome but not necessary.)

THE ICONS;Collapse )

Please give us your votes by Sunday, August 23rd at 3pm PST. You are not required to vote but the more votes the better.

Submission post is here.

(yes, this does mean my computer is alive again - I'm never touching boot.ini again - so we'd like to not have to postpone voting this week!)

Here is your slightly belated mid-week reminder! The following participants have not yet submitted an icon:


The submissions post is here.

Also: Kai's computer is borked and I'll be gone all day tomorrow so the voting might not go up until very late in the night.
