Icontest #1 - Pokémon
{Icontest - Pokémon}

Okay, time for some explanation - I'm bringing back icontest. I thought I'd do it sometime because I believe we can actually make this work. Making icons is relatively less time consuming and thus I believe that quite a lot of people can easily take a few minutes off from their lives and participate.
note to alexial&gav - I wanted to talk about it with you guys before going through with it but wished to get the thread up before 2nd May. And it is, pretty much, night time over here. So yeah, sorry that I went ahead without any discussion. ;___;

With that said, all you have to do is make an icon with 100x100 pixel as dimensions. Just make one, submit it here along with the stock used and you stand a chance to win an emblem. :3 Plus, ain't like the previous Icontest winners will not get anything. I have something in store for them as well. ;] Icon-making contests are terrific opportunities for veteran and beginner graphic artists alike to improve their graphic abilities so I urge everyone to participate without hesitation! You got plenty of time as well. 20 days to make an icon. The last ten days will consist of voting.


Make an icon with Pokémon as the theme. It doesn't have to center around a 'pokémon', per say, as you can have an icon with a character from the anime/manga in it as well.

May or may not change this, bah.

Right, okay, It's been a long time since I've done icons properly but whatever. I've made a thing because why not.

I used two things for this - a screengrab from the anime & Beartic TCG art. I'm not as happy with it as I wanted to be but I'm def blaming that on the original screengrab and my inability to make lines smooth. :|

I haven't made an icon in ages, but okay.

Sunfished May 10th, 2013 7:40 PM

Okay, this contest is fairly lacking in muscles and Stunfisk, so I'm here to mediate!

JayD May 11th, 2013 5:22 PM

This is my first art contest, so I hope I do pretty good?

Here's the stock

Seki May 11th, 2013 5:47 PM

I initally made one like 1 hour ago, with a SKET Dance character as well, but after I finished, I just found out that it must be Pokemon-related.

Oh well... Ka ka ka!

Tackle May 11th, 2013 9:55 PM

I took the original Chespin artwork and played around with Photoshop.

derozio May 12th, 2013 11:40 AM

Sexy stuff, guys! Never knew FG/OT regulars like LilJz, Snor(es)lax and Tackle had a talent in icon designing too. :3 Really glad to see so much participation! :) Anyway, there's still 7 days left. You can change your entries as many times as you want till then. This thread will be closed on 20th and a new thread with a poll will be set up. Participants are requested to comment as to why they picked an entry in that thread.

Though it's okay if you aren't able to say much. Just vote, in that case. It won't be mandatory or anything. :p But yeah, those who do put effort into those comments will be rewarded. :)

Imma throw inside my entry too pretty soon. maybe tomorrow. :p

Snowdrop May 12th, 2013 2:35 PM

Also, I used a small cloud texture and a rainbow diagonal line texture.

Miss Doronjo May 13th, 2013 7:50 AM

I gave it the ol' college try. As promised. <3
Stock used: click!

Win or not, this was pretty fun to do!

Edward Elric May 13th, 2013 11:08 AM

Sure, why not?

I think it came out somewhat good n_n

Stock I used can be found here.

Avishka May 15th, 2013 3:40 AM

my first icon :D

Fire Flyy May 17th, 2013 3:23 PM

had a hard time deciding the colors lol

derozio May 21st, 2013 12:16 AM

Aww crap, f-forgive my lazy ass, people! Realize I was supposed to close this and post the voting thread earlier today. Sorry! I'll do it in a moment or two.

With that said, I'm just really happy to see so much participation. You guys are so good at icons and yet choose not to showcase your talent. That's unfortunate. But now that you've caught mine and alexial's eye, we'll bug the hell outta you and force you to open a gallery. :p But yeah, honestly, amazing entries, people. Keep it up! :]

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 9:46 AM.
