narnia lims: last challenge [06 Mar 2006|07:32pm]

honest_illusion
[ mood | peaceful ]

Alas, it's time for the final challenge. First of all, congratulations to vereine and oravannahka for making it this far. Way to go, both of you! :)

Unlike the previous challenge posts, I shall do things the other way around, and start with the scans I want you both to use.

FOUR PICTURES ARE UNDER HERECollapse )

And now, on to the more complicated part...

THE GENERAL RULES

1. With all the images provided for you under the cut, EACH of you should make FOUR icons featuring ALL of the pictures we provided. There should be a different picture per icon. Also, AT LEAST two of the icons should feature ALL the Pevensies. In other words, you cannot just crop the pictures the way you want. You can do that with two icons, but the other two icons should feature ALL the siblings in the particular images.

2. You may only participate if you made it through the eight previous challenges.

3. Standard LJ icon requirements apply, meaning nothing larger than 100x100 pixels or 40 KB. You cannot share your icon with anyone, not until this challenge is over.

4. The icons must be new and fresh. This means that you cannot submit icons you've made before even if it features the picture/s provided for you. Make new ones.

5. You have until March 15, 10 PM EST to submit your icons, to give you one week to make two icons. If you have no idea of how that translates to your local time, you can make use of this time zone converter. Failure to submit within the appointed time will disqualify you from the competition.

6. All icons can be submitted by making a comment on this post. Please include the actual image and the URL to the images. All comments are screened. If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask -- just make it in a comment separate to the one with your entry.


And now...the even more complicated part...

THE SPECIFIC RULES

For SCANNED IMAGE # 1:

The icon must include a part of the lyrics of "Open Up Your Eyes" by Jeremy Camp. You can find that HERE.


For SCANNED IMAGE #2:

The icon must include a part of the lyrics of "Can't Take It In" by Imogen Heap. You can find that HERE.


For SCANNED IMAGE #3:

The icon must include a part of the lyrics of "Remembering You" by Steven Curtis Chapman. You can find that HERE.

The eight challenge is over and now it's time for getting your votes in! Everyone can vote, even non-participants, but participants, keep in mind the rule about not showing your icon to anyone.

VOTING RULES
01. You will be voting for the icon with LESSER QUALITY than the rest. This means your vote should be based on the QUALITY of the icon, and not because you dislike the icon or a certain style used. Take notice of the technical aspects of the icon -- cropping, colouring, sharpening, text placement, brushwork, etc.

02. Comment to this post with THREE (3) icons. For each icon, we HIGHLY SUGGEST including a reason why you have chosen to vote for them. The explanation does not have to lengthy, a simple

44. There are too many brushes, and the subject is being crowded out because of it.


is enough. However, this is not mandatory, but we believe that it can be a good source of improvement if the icon maker voted out asks for them (everything will remain anonymous). Remember -- THREE icons! All comments are screened.

03. Under the list of your voted lesser quality icons, include your choice of ONE FAVOURITE ICON in the set for the Viewer's Choice Icon. You do not need to include a reason for this.

VOTING ENDS FEBRUARY 28, 8:00 PM EST.

On to the icons!Collapse )

We are now at the last leg of the contest! Or at least near it. :D The sixth challenge is now over and it's time for us to get your votes! Everyone can vote, even non-participants, but participants, keep in mind the rule about not showing your icon to anyone.

Out of 14 participants, there were 11 people who managed to get their icons in on time. We haven't received any icon entry from the following people: dreamergraphix, slowtrain and thelondonrain. We're very sorry but you cannot participate in the Narnia LIMS competition anymore.


VOTING RULES
01. You will be voting for the icon with LESSER QUALITY than the rest. This means your vote should be based on the QUALITY of the icon, and not because you dislike the icon or a certain style used. Take notice of the technical aspects of the icon -- cropping, colouring, sharpening, text placement, brushwork, etc.

is enough. However, this is not mandatory, but we believe that it can be a good source of improvement if the icon maker voted out asks for them (everything will remain anonymous).

Again REMEMBER: We're not asking if you like the colors used or some other thing you prefer. You're supposed to be looking at the technicalities of how the icon was made. From now on, any votes that state personal preference as a reason will not be counted.

Remember -- THREE icons! All comments are screened.

03. Under the list of your voted lesser quality icons, include your choice of ONE FAVOURITE ICON in the set for the Viewer's Choice Icon. You do not need to include a reason for this.

VOTING ENDS FEBRUARY 09, 8:00 PM EST.
