Week 90: Challenge

RULES
☆ For this challenge, we will provide 2 cropped bases, and one image for you to crop yourself. You are allowed to submit up to 3 icons, one for each of the provided bases/image.
☆ Submissions must fulfill livejournal requirements, i.e. be no more than 100x100 pixels/40 KB, and in the jpg, png, or gif format.
☆ Your icons must be made fresh for the challenge - please don't recycle or do cookie-cutting (That is, just changing images of a previously made icon).

Only one person needs to submit, but in the submission, you must include the lj username of your partner, and that partner must reply to confirm the collaboration by making a comment that says "I collaborated with this person". You may only collaborate with one individual a week, though you can switch partners each week.

This week's theme is...um, TOUCHY FEELY!? All the bases and the scan involve characters touching each other XD. Valentine's love should still spread after, Y/N?

Week 89: Results

I owe you guys this much, after disappearing. I'm so sorry about our failure as moderators. I'm going to try my best to keep this place alive...though once my exams come, I'm not sure how I'll handle!

I'd also like to apologise to innocent_lexys for missing out one of your icons! I never meant to, and I just must have missed it when I was randomising the icons. I'm so, SO sorry!

New theme coming right after this :').
Hot chocolate and cookies

Banner Catch-up post #1

I'm not entirely sure what happened to this community... but anyway, here's the first round of catch-up banners. For tranquilsquall, innocent_lexys, logically, nyaanoko, frogpillow and kinomoto_95. I'm sorry if these aren't up to my usual standard, I was kind of rushing because there are a lot to do. ^^;

Please comment once you've saved them and let me know if there's anything you want changed. Thanks!

P.S. Mods, if you could screen the done ones at the request post to avoid confusion, that would be awesome~

This week...there's actually a theme *gaspshockhorror*. 'sbeen a while, hasn't it 8D? Anyway, what could it possibly be? White space. Yes, all the bases as well as the free-crop image have excessive white/negative space backgrounds. Wheeeeee.

FREE CROP
Something not entirely new - I believe nocturnelorelei has done something like this. But I'd like to make it a weekly thing :D. Anyway, from now on, we will provide one full-sized image for you to crop yourself. It's a different sort of challenge, in a sense of coming up with a good crop on your own, but it also gives you more versatility.

The deadline for submissions is FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12 @ 10:00 PM EST (May possibly be earlier or later).

Annoucement in regards to banners

To anyone who has yet to receive banners up until Week 88, this is the post for you.

We're horrible at keeping track, and keeping up to date with banners, we ain't ashamed to hide it. With that said, We will no longer be doing banners after Week 88. From Week 89's results onwards, we will be directing you to custom_banners. I will inform the people over there about our change, and hopefully it'll all run smoothly and you'll get your banners really quick because CB people are super speedy :D. We will, however, be doing all overdue banners. It is not the duty of custom_banners to deal with banners prior to us removing banner makers, so we shall fulfill our own problems until them 8D.

To all our current banner makers, THANK YOU SO MUCH, up until now! Hopefully you guys, with your newfound free time, wouldn't mind helping out filling overdue banner requests ♥! No hard feelings, we love you all, it's just...well, you know how it goes (And obviously you know how overdue some of these banners are. I swear we have stuff from Week 40-ish that haven't been done). In case you care, tenipuricon is looking for bannermakers *coughchokehackhinthinthint*, so feel free to apply there :D


Now that I'm done with the annoucement, please feel free to fill in this form if you have a banner that has not yet been made. If you have more than one overdue, feel free to stick all of them into one comment, or seperate them out - up to you! We will reply to your comment with the completed banner when we're done :)




NOTICE: We will not make banners for people who do not request them at this post, even if they have mentioned they wanted banners on results posts in the past. So if you really want one, please request here. Sorry for all the trouble this causes!



(Hopefully none of the other mods disagree with me...?)
