kerravonsen: Seventh Doctor hugging a guitar: "Blues" (blues)
[personal profile] kerravonsen posting in [community profile] icon_style
Welcome to challenge #2x12, "Blues". Since my challenges have obviously been too hard, it's a REALLY REALLY easy one this time.
For this challenge, each icon you make must be in shades of blue, or dominated by the colour blue.
And if we don't get more than three people entering this time, I give up.

(okay, so I like blue!)

- desaturation
- colours

Useful tutorials:
- basics
- Gimp For The Artistically Challenged

1. From one to four icons can be submitted.
2. You have two weeks to submit the icons; that is, they are due on 17th of July(that's my time, Australian time, so for some of you that will be the 16th of July).
3. Icons will be submitted in comments to this post. All comments will be screened, to preserve anonymity.
4. As soon as I can after the 17th of July, I will make a voting poll here. People will then have three days to vote.
There will be two sections in the voting: (a) "Best embodiment of style"; this you vote for whichever icon you think demonstrates the style/technique of the given challenge (b) "I just like it"; where you vote for whichever icon you simply like the best.
5. You are required NOT to post your icons anywhere public until after the voting is over, so as to preserve the anonymity of the entries.
6. When the voting is over, I'll announce the winners here. Discussion of the challenge will be encouraged, especially discussion and demonstration of techniques used. The entries will also be un-screened.

In short:
Due 17th of July, post entries here, don't show them elsewhere.

If you know any good tutorials for this challenge, please post a link.

And please pimp this far and wide!

Also, if you have any ideas for challenges you would like to see, don't hesitate to suggest them in the suggestions post. We want to present challenges that YOU want to be challenged by.

I'm hoping to have a bit more time to participate—it has been impossible for the last few weeks. I do understand the frustrations of running a challenge where you don't get many people joining in!

First-time submitter, here. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use the icon for this comment, so I decided not to in case having it on my userpic page counted as "posting it." It will show up in my icon gallery on my LJ scrapbook because that's the only way for me to give you a link to it, but as far as I know, no one actually looks at my lj scrapbook--I just use it so that I can link icons from there in icon posts.

Here's the link:
