Incorporate an onomatopoeia into your icon.
An onomatopoeia is a word that sounds like the sound it is describing when it is pronounced aloud.
ie. CRASH / BANG / CLICK / GROWL / POP, and so on... ^_^
So in your icon, an onomatopoeic word should be there, somewhere.
The rules and guidelines for this type of challenge are as follows:
(1) You may enter up to THREE icons each week, one from each category. More than one icon in given category will result in disqualification.
(2) When giving an overall theme, you must relate your icon to said theme in some way, which is open for interpretation. For example, if the overall, general theme is "use the color pink," then I expect all three icons to utilize some shade of pink. [We have no blanket theme this week. XD]
(3) All icons must fit LJ standards--they can be no bigger than 40k or 100x100 pixels. They must be in one of three formats--".gif," ".jpg," or ".png."
*(4)* BLANKS are images that are already 100x100 pixels. You may ONLY work with the blank provided--you cannot include other photographs, find a bigger version of the picture, etc. YOU MUST USE THE BASE PROVIDED.
*(5)* IMAGES are huge pictures that you are given a link to. You can crop the picture anyway that you want, as long as it comes out to 100x100 pixels. You may ONLY work with the image provided--you cannot include other photographs, find a bigger version of the picture, etc. YOU MUST USE THE IMAGE PROVIDED. If you find a version of the picture with higher resolution, comment and let the mod know--we'll up the better version for EVERYONE to use so that it is fair.
*(6)* The SUB-THEME is a theme that is added ON TOP OF the weekly theme. For example, if the theme is the color pink, your sub-theme might be to use lyrics from the song "Pink" by Aerosmith while STILL using the color pink in your icon. Sub-themes can be anything: Lyrics, structural requirements, etc. The best part about a sub-theme? YOU CAN CHOOSE ANY GRAPHIC THAT MEETS ALL REQUIREMENTS. ^_^
(7) When posting, be sure to include the URL from each image in addition to whether or not you would like a banner!! Also, to point out the obvious, icons must be submitted via "img src=" so that we can all see the pretty picture IN ADDITION to the link! :-)
Questions or comments? Please post them below and further clarification will be given!
The icons will be due Friday 6pm EST, unless baine wants to change it.
