Okay, let's try this again and see whether anyone still wants to play. I'll try making this an 'easy' one.

Welcome to challenge #2x16, "Frame it!", inspired by a recent round of [community profile] fandom20in20.

For this challenge, each icon must have a very noticable frame around it, at least 5 pixels wide. The color of that frame does not matter, you can also make it look like a picture frame, make it a gradient, or whatever you'd like to.

examples, tutorials, rules, and dates )

Hello again, folks. Since the poll on challenge-length was tied, I'm leaving the challenge length at two weeks, because it's more flexible.

Welcome to challenge #2x04, "Viva la Revolution!"
For this challenge, each icon you make must contain an element which is rotated; an image which is rotated, text which is rotated, or both. This does not mean that the icon should be animated, just that it should contain elements which have been rotated at an angle, whether that be a 90-degree angle or some other angle.

This challenge is now closed.

Talk low, talk slow, and don't talk too much.
-- John Wayne


Welcome to challenge #2x02, "Talk Slow".
For this challenge, each icon you make must have animated text in it. However, the further challenge is to do the animation so that the speed of the animation is slower than the default. Even better, if you can have more interesting things happen, like some parts of the animation being at a different speed than others. Don't forget that the icons still need to fit within the 40K size limit for user icons.

Welcome to challenge #2x01, "Selective Colouring"; this is "season 2" of icon_style!
For this challenge, each icon you make must use selective colouring; that is, most of the image is changed to a "false" colouring (usually Black-and-White, but it can be colourized in some other way) and the original colouring is "restored" in selected areas.

My apologies for the lateness of this, but we can still finish this in this month, so I'm going ahead. Go us!

Welcome to challenge #18, "Contours". For this challenge, each icon you make must look like map contours; that is, a finite number of colours, looking as if it was made with a vector program like inkscape (well, you could use inkscape if you wanted to, too!)

We're baaaack! And in celebration of the New Year, this challenge #16 is called "Ring in the Changes". For this challenge, each icon must use colour gradients, that is, gradually changing from one shade to another. Using the gradient as the background with a person in the foreground is not enough; the gradient has to be more important than that. Gradient-as-background would be fine with things like text or a silhuette in the foreground, because the background gets more attention with visuals like that.
