I got your invite. Well, this certainly sounds like a plan. Might be kind of hard for me to do the manga scans and the Shouju and Shounen, considering I have no idea where to get any of the 3. And this is all for fun, a friendly contest, no prizes? Sounds like fun.

Lust
February 7th, 2006, 3:58 PM
This is a great idea!

Even though I will not participate in making icons, I will definitely vote each week.

Sawyer
February 7th, 2006, 6:30 PM
I'm just glad I got invited... most of the time, nobody ever lets the abstract guy in... >_<

*jaw drops* you forgot to add my... name.... xD

Geometric-sama
February 8th, 2006, 6:29 AM
;_; Aww! Can we do one that's not invites too? I love making icons!

THIRTY-SIX
February 8th, 2006, 6:44 AM
You never agreed to be in it. XPoh... i thought it was implied when i asked the question xD oh am i early on the avatar / icon?

Geometric-sama
February 8th, 2006, 6:44 AM
ZOMG. I totally love you Paigey. XD

Not in that way. :P

Geometric-sama
February 8th, 2006, 7:02 AM
I don't have animals to photograph so I have to go find humans to take pictures of :D Hmmm... it's 2am, reckon I can find anyone?

Sawyer
February 8th, 2006, 7:43 AM
Can it be 50x50 icons? They're so much cooler, and I'm way better at making 'em. *points to avatar* ;-;

Geometric-sama
February 8th, 2006, 7:55 AM
We could make it both, then? I mean, usually you find icontests in LJs, and they're max 100x100 rather than exactly.

Sawyer
February 8th, 2006, 4:37 PM
Well, your choice, whatever.

THIRTY-SIX
February 12th, 2006, 1:56 AM
so what happend? o.o
or is it going on somewhere else

Geometric-sama
February 12th, 2006, 6:42 AM
We have to wait a week until everyone's entries are in! ^_^

Sawyer
February 12th, 2006, 9:48 AM
Sorry... I'm just really busy =/

Geometric-sama
February 13th, 2006, 4:53 AM
Well, we have all the topics. You can make all your icons when you have time and then just submit them week by week. :D

Sawyer
February 13th, 2006, 9:00 AM
I wish it were that simple... =/

Sawyer
February 13th, 2006, 8:07 PM
Yeah, I know. xD It's other things I have to do that make me stressed out.

rpg pokemon
February 14th, 2006, 1:05 AM

THIRTY-SIX
February 14th, 2006, 5:42 AM
im actually surprised alangeds and rpg pokemon arent in it...

Lust
February 17th, 2006, 5:18 PM
Has everyone submitted their icons?

Geometric-sama
February 19th, 2006, 4:07 AM
JA sucks at real-life things. XD

I'm almost done with this week's, but I'm having problems finding a pic for the last one I want to make. :(

THIRTY-SIX
February 19th, 2006, 4:16 AM
google search it.. i did xD

Geometric-sama
February 19th, 2006, 5:44 AM
I did too, but I still couldn't find one. :(

*has to go through and make her own screenshots* I just don't remember the EPISODE.

alangeds
February 19th, 2006, 10:24 PM
Even if I was invited, i'm not sure I'd want to do this.. :s
Maybe though

Geometric-sama
February 21st, 2006, 6:38 AM
And you don't have to accept an invitation. You can just beg for one like I did XD.

*notes that my first week's icons were terrible because I can't do RL things :<*

THIRTY-SIX
February 23rd, 2006, 3:40 AM
all the entries are good .. i sshoulda used better things >.<
oh is every theme gonna be a new thread?

Geometric-sama
February 23rd, 2006, 5:26 AM
Mine were terrible. :( Paigey, did you receive mine for this week? ^_^

Geometric-sama
February 23rd, 2006, 7:33 AM
He can edit polls, but I think it's nice to do a different one for each theme, so people can see the old icons ;)

Geometric-sama
February 23rd, 2006, 7:48 AM
Worry about them then, hmmm? We've plenty of time until then, after all. ^_^

Kyosuke
February 23rd, 2006, 9:24 PM
Congrats to Kyosuke for winning week one with a landslide 11 votes! o_o;;

Yay me.. I honestly didn't even expect to get any votes.. considering I only had time to submit one entry for week one XD

Good luck to everyone for the next theme!

THIRTY-SIX
February 24th, 2006, 2:11 AM
o.o woah....xD congrats....its because everyone loves wolves....
since we know the winner 3 icons and 3 votes D:

Lust
February 24th, 2006, 10:32 PM
Yay, Lance won! Congrats dude!

Also, ____, Lance didn't just win because everyone likes wolves, Lance won because his icon rocked!

Geometric-sama
February 25th, 2006, 4:32 AM
And I got one vote from 3 icons (mine were 1, 7 and 8). XD I told you mine sucked.

THIRTY-SIX
February 25th, 2006, 6:15 AM
j_a i liked them.. but not the focal points.... mines were 2, 6 and 10 D:

Geometric-sama
February 25th, 2006, 6:34 AM
You haven't locked it yet Paigey! :D

I liked all yours :D The #5 was cool.

Geometric-sama
February 26th, 2006, 6:00 AM
I thought it looked terrible ;_; it was just filler. #5 had an awesome texture.

So you'll just reset all votes on the poll each week then?

And for week 3, can we use stuff we've drawn? I don't quite understand the brushes-only idea. Can you give a sample? And can we use other people's brushes?

Kyosuke

I think pretty much what it is, is creating an icon where we only use brushes in Photoshop or whatever, and use various techniques to make it look interesting, without any sort of stock picture... at least thats what I think it means ^^'

Geometric-sama
February 26th, 2006, 4:20 PM
Better let us know soon since it's this week! XD Or just switch one of the later weeks with this one, and change it then if you need to. XD

But yes, I still need example ;_;

THIRTY-SIX
February 27th, 2006, 2:18 AM
D: oh man... it changed...i do quite well without a stock....oh well find songs =D

Geometric-sama
February 27th, 2006, 4:41 AM
Oh AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME <3. I love lyrics-themed icons XD. Actually... I had an idea for one yesterday... BUT I'VE FORGOTTEN IT ;_;

Geometric-sama
February 27th, 2006, 4:51 PM
I still think a new thread would be better x_x

THIRTY-SIX
February 28th, 2006, 3:44 AM
will the poll be open when the new icons are up? o.o

Kyosuke
March 1st, 2006, 8:23 PM
There seems to be a problem with the poll, it says that I have already voted, even though I didn't..

Its probably easier to start a new thread for each week.

THIRTY-SIX
March 2nd, 2006, 3:17 AM
D: i thought this mightve happend ....ooh wells...

Geometric-sama
March 2nd, 2006, 5:15 AM
:D I told you there should be a new thread. XD It makes it more obvious anywayz~ :<

THIRTY-SIX
March 6th, 2006, 3:10 AM
we need more votes... im guessing that the next few week will have less D:

Lust
March 6th, 2006, 9:12 AM

Pessimist.
I got at least 10 people to vote by bugging them on MSN, I'll do that again sometimet this week. xD

Kyosuke
March 6th, 2006, 3:18 PM
I'll have this week's thread locked as soon as Jorge gets on MSN~
Only one person submitted icons this week. >>;

Week 3's icons are due today? If so it seems kind of sudden seeing as how the 2nd theme was posted just last Thursday for voting. Not trying to sound like an a-hole or anything.. I'm just saying.. XD

THIRTY-SIX
March 7th, 2006, 3:11 AM
my week three entries suck but ill pm them to you soon
o no...... i came in second with 4 votes D:

Geometric-sama
March 7th, 2006, 5:07 AM
Paigey, I think you need to set an actual date for submissions to end for each week, since all the times got stuffed around. :<

Mine were 2, 11 and 12. Double the votes of week 1!

Kyosuke
March 7th, 2006, 1:08 PM
my week three entries suck but ill pm them to you soon

As much as I use gifs and whatnot, I didn't do that "touch" icon.. using technique like that aren't that easy in PSP8.. so theres no way its mine XD

THIRTY-SIX
March 7th, 2006, 1:22 PM

THIRTY-SIX
March 7th, 2006, 1:44 PM

THIRTY-SIX
March 7th, 2006, 2:00 PM

THIRTY-SIX
March 18th, 2006, 2:44 AM

Geometric-sama
March 18th, 2006, 10:26 PM
Mine were 4 and 7, 7 in particular was filler~

I haven't had time this week to make any icons yet ;_; STUPID PROGRAMMING ASSIGNMENTS THAT SEG FAULT

Geometric-sama
March 19th, 2006, 6:25 AM
I don't like any of them much actually :<

I should have entered some of my old ones for this week~ I did want to do some but had no time. Oh well, too late to submit now ;_;

Geometric-sama
March 19th, 2006, 6:47 AM
Didn't have a chance ;). Will have to find time for shounen is all~ :D

Lust
March 19th, 2006, 9:36 AM
This week's icons are sweet! Whoever made #1 is God!

Geometric-sama
March 24th, 2006, 6:50 AM
I totally made icons for the coming week. XD Paigey, you gotta update the first post~ The ones I made are mostly filler though.

Geometric-sama
March 24th, 2006, 9:02 PM
They aren't awesome but hopefully I'll get some votes XD.

*PMs a replacement*

THIRTY-SIX

Kyosuke
March 30th, 2006, 4:02 PM
Seeing as how next week is Gif week, are there any guidelines to what kind of stock picture to use?.. or can we use whatever we want?


And nice job ____ I guess it is true when they say sex sells...XD

Kyosuke
March 30th, 2006, 4:45 PM
Ah okay, just making sure ^^

THIRTY-SIX
April 1st, 2006, 9:11 AM

Geometric-sama
April 1st, 2006, 4:39 PM

Eeep. Gotta rustle up a GIF. Puzzle hunt is eating my time.

Geometric-sama
April 1st, 2006, 5:42 PM
#3 was awesome... even if it was something ridiculously popular XD

Geometric-sama
April 1st, 2006, 6:45 PM

Kyosuke
April 12th, 2006, 7:55 AM
I'm not sure whats going to happen either, I guess we'll just have to wait and see until she gets back.

THIRTY-SIX
April 26th, 2006, 3:01 PM
so her last activity was yesterday .. but what happens now? given up?

Kyosuke
April 26th, 2006, 4:33 PM
Yup.. I think what this means now is that the contest is over.

Goodluck Kahoshi with whatever your up to, everyone needs to move on and get on with life and thats what you did.. so you have my respect for that. ^^
