Tell Me A Story...

Icons



Info

Each week participants will be given a quote, a short myth, or a small sample of a larger work (such as the Iliad) to work from. They are then expected to go forth and create icons based on the theme of the week. Sometimes, we will provide bases or pictures to work from, but mostly participants are free to use whichever pictures work best for them - so long as it pertains back to the myth/theme of the week. Take a peek, join the party, and have some fun!

Hey all, sorry this is coming late, but I figure a heads up should be given.

Both mods are, at the moment, unable to maintain the community (I'm out of state, the other is moving). Just until the end of the month. The problem though, with the current challenge is that there has been little activity of late and it's been difficult to get enough entries to run a contest.

So, unless declared otherwise, the current challenge is the current challenge. I have two icons already (yay!) but if I have more by the Sunday, November 5th, I will run the poll and post the next challenge. (unless I'm beaten to it. >.>)

Sorry about the lateness of this post, but use the time to make two awesome icons for submission and get others to submit as well -- even if just this once!

HAVE FUN AND SEE YOU SOON!

Alright, next challenge for you! I grabbed a book nearby, opened it up, and grabbed the first myth that came to hand. It's another Native North American one.

Sorry about the miss post and to any who had trouble with it.

Anyway, rather than drag this out, I'm posting a poll for the most recent challenge, Hawaii. Myth Here Choose one.

Hawaii~Collapse )

The next challenge will be posted by midnight (my time) and banners for winners not yet awarded banners will be done with the presentation of these results (thus, tomorrow).

Hello again.

This is the... er... This is gypsy_owl with the wonderful reminder that there is a challenge with still only FOUR SUBMISSIONS and thus, I can not run the proper poll that I would like to run. I have a solution if no one rises to the challenge and remains slackers of not doing icons (I know, it's real life, and thus, hard to avoid) but I would prefer to not go that route.

So please? For me? SUBMIT?

Wow, it's Sunday, isn't it?

That means that normally I'd be doing a poll for the contest now. Except one minor flaw... I only have four icons. That means that it is very difficult to run a challenge. So, I shall give until Tuesday night for you to get them in.

Here there be winners. I do not honestly remember who's supposed to do banners this week so I'm going to have to go back and look at the rotation. I don't think it's me, but I could be wrong. If one of our lovely banner makers would like to step up and take it, that'd be lovely too!

Winners under cut!Collapse )

Also, don't forget Challenge #13! Go yonder and enter!

The time is about 10 pm PST. So, the closing time for this challenge will be the same.

Someone mentioned Pele to me the other day, and I decided that she would make a great source for a challenge.

Meant to do this yesterday, but.. life happens.

So. I only have, as of this morning, TWO icons. I can't really run a test with that, which means I need more icons. So come on! Go for it! Try something different and challenge yourself! SUBMIT!

Hello everyone, enjoy your time free? I come with a myth. I had to search a bit, and it's actually from a site more meant for kids, but I think that there's something in there you can work with. Plus, it's from Australia. So it's all good even if the returns make it a bit long seeming.

Koobor the KoalaCollapse )

~ You may submit up to TWO icons
~ It must be LJ standard: 100x100 pixels and under 40k.
