Thanks to everyone for voting! :) Unfortunately, however, we have to say goodbye to an iconmaker this week. :( It was REALLY hard, as voters noted, and the final numbers were quite close. (Finals will be up later tonight, I have to run to the store!)

Banner-maker this week is lealila.

I'm extending the semi-finals challenge voting a day due to low number of votes. Thank you so much to those that have already voted - if you haven't, please head on over and do so. :)

Really, people! Only three votes thus far, we could definitely use some more. Please take a look at the semi-finals! Voting ends Sunday, April 7th at 9:00pm PST.

Please give us your thoughts! :)

I like them all! ;) Voters, you will have a hard time this week. There will be one elimination, one members' choice, and one mod's choice. Next challenge will be the finals!

Everyone submitted!

the rules:
  • You do not need to be a member of this community to vote. However, you must have a livejournal or OpenId account to vote – anonymous votes will not be counted.
  • You cannot vote for yourself.
  • LF votes require reasons and should address technical problems (too sharp, too blurry, silly font doesn't compliment serious image), not things of personal preference (I hate green, that's boring, that icon sucks) - you should be able to explain your reasons, so that they're helpful to the iconmaker. (There is a guide to providing concrit here.) A reason for favorite votes is optional, but strongly encouraged.
  • Iconmakers are not required to use a week's theme, so votes cannot be based on the theme - you can see the FAQ for other details like this.
  • You are voting for your two least favorite and two favorite icons.
  • Voting ends on Sunday, April 7th, 9:00pm PST.

please vote! :)Collapse )

Made more than one icon and chose the best to submit? Here you can post your submitted icon and any alternates, to share with others. People following along but are not in the round (eliminated or never joined) can also post their icons (if made with the challenge caps) here. :) In addition, this is also the place for more freeform discussion of iconmaking. Have at it!
