Here's the voting for Challenge 12! There will be one members' choice & one elimination. There will be no mod's choice for the rest of the round.

Everyone submitted.

For the semi-finals, all participants were required to submit two icons made from a single image. Voting will be for each set of icons, and reasons for LF votes will be required for both icons in the set.

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. A reason for favorite votes is optional, but strongly encouraged.
  • You do not need to be participating in the current round and/or weekly challenge to vote.
  • You are voting for your least favorite set and favorite set of icons.
  • Voting ends on Sunday, May 26th at 8 PM UTC (you can translate that to your time zone here).

please vote! :)Collapse )

The challenge:

SEMI-FINALS - For the semi-final challenge, you must submit TWO icons made from the same screencap. You may pick your own screencap, but you'll need to submit the cap in its original form, along with your two entries. So long as the cap is from an aired episode of SPN, you are free to choose any that you like! Good luck!

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!
