voting stage
Details
That's right everyone! We have now entered the voting period of A&D's second icontest : video games! Please read the rules, review all of the entries carefully, and vote for the icon that you liked the most.
Deadline - July 1st, 2013
Rules
  • Please make sure that you, as participant, vote before July 1st. This gives you 10 days to submit your vote. It is optional for non-participants but it isn't so for you. It's mandatory that you vote or you'll be disqualified.
  • Although it's okay if you just vote and go along, it is expected of you that you make a small post underlining why you voted for the icon that you did. No need to write huge paragraphs; a single line would honestly suffice if you don't want to write much!
  • Do not vote for yourself.
  • Be polite, respectful, and mindful of the artist's work. Try to avoid comments like, "well, I would have done [insert icon] this way." or, "I don't think any of the icons are that great based on [insert opinions]". Comments like that undermine the effort the artists put in and subtract from the spirit of icontest. We love to hear everyone's feedback, good and bad, but please be tasteful about it.

I voted for Snowdrop, the whole image just captures Midna so well. And it's easily the best.

The best one around here has to be that Snowdrop's Midna. After looking through the stock I realised what a clever designing it was.

Coming close must be TwilightBlade.

I voted for Bartolomeo, primarily on the basis that I absolutely love how the colour of the stock has been accentuated and really been brought out. Great work.

I vote for Bartolomeo. I like the character, the colors are good and the image is nicely cropped.

All of the entries were good once again, but I voted for Snowdrop's as I felt it was the best overall. Nice work!

Voting for Hoenn, because the background fits really well with 47.

Almost forgot about this; casting my vote for Bartolomeo. Nice use of the game render rather than using fanart. Good pink colors too. The white is creamy and lovely looking too.

Icontest #2 - video games
the monthly icon-making competition

It was a very close match, with two members pulling ahead of the pack. The winners are:
Winners
Snowdrop

Bartolomeo
(Runner Up)

Congratulations to Snowdrop and Bartolomeo for some excellent work! You should be receiving your emblems shortly! Also, a big congrats to all of the participants as well. I've only been running icontest for 2 sessions now, but it's clear some very substantial progress has been made. You all deserve a pat on the back. :]

You know the drill! The winners are now allowed to decide the next theme of icontest #3. This thread here will serve as a discussion thread for the winners to take other contestants' opinions into consideration (if they wish to do so) and come to a conclusion regarding the theme of the next icontest.

With that said, hope you people had fun in this competition. I sure did. Let the discussion begin!

Hm... okay, I'll put my suggestion in

Maybe the next topic can be real life animals. We could use any species of animal in our submission, extinct or alive. No mythicals, though...

Wow, I actually put more efforts this time into my work but not even one vote. My last art had one vote and I didn't work that much on it. /cryinafetalposition


I like Snowdrop's suggestion, animals. BUT I also would like a mythical animal contest too!

Or maybe even a superhero theme? Only from comics and not manga :] (Comic book fanboy in me is kicking in right now)

Ah, the icontest is a cruel mistress indeed.

Snowdrop, I love the idea of real life animals. :)
