Welcome to challenge #2x15, "Cartoon Effect".

For this challenge, each icon you make must use some kind of cartoon-ish effects: speech/thought bubbles, line art, or both. The pictures you use shouldn't be from a cartoon, so you need to add these effects.

Here are a few examples of what we are looking for in this challenge:

(I couldn't find any more examples and I am kind of running out of time, so if anyone has any other good examples, just link to them :) Also, if you have any questions, just ask)




1. From one to four icons can be submitted.
2. You have two weeks to submit the icons; that is, they are due on October 17 (I will consider the challenge entry phase closed when I get up on Monday, my time (GMT+2)).
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 October 17, I will make a voting poll here. People will then have four 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 October 17, 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.

Also, if you are interested in helping run this challenge, PM me :)
