MOD: Attention Please [August 15th, 2006 | 00.45]

everbliss
Hello everyone, this is the ever lazy everbliss. As everyone probably noticed, fma_sins has been on an unofficial hiatus and pretty much inactive for awhile. As of the late, I haven't had any motivation to run challenges due to real life and other reasons. Other reasons that also include the amount of participation here. I'm fully aware that it is low and it is hard to get enough icons to run a full challenge. So after much thinking and discussing with twinsofthesky, I've decided that I really have to make a choice. That choice being, whether or not I should close down and delete fma_sins, and if I don't close fma_sins, I will probably either find another co-mod or hand the entire community off to someone else.

That being said, I'd like to know what the members think. Please leave some feedback or any suggestions as to what you think I should do (comments are screened). I am leaving tomorrow morning and won't be back for about a week. I hope to get some responses in that time. Thank you every for your time and I hope you are all having a great summer.

[ mood | numb ]

Hey guys, this is your weekly reminder to submit your 'One Color' icons to this post right here (with examples provided). So far, only one person has participated and it would be really nice to see more icons, as most people are out for the summer (when I say most, I mean, I know some people still have finals this week). So if any of you guys get the chance, please submit here!

Week 13: One Color [June 9th, 2006 | 22.20]

everbliss
Theme: One Color (shamelessly ganking this theme from some other icontests that I'm in)
Your icon(s) must be of soley one color and its different shades. Other than that, the rest is up to you.

ExamplesCollapse )

Rules:
[]You may submit up to two icons for this challenge.
[]No fanart or doujinshi. Videogame caps including Bluebird's Illusion, however, are allowed.
[]Icon must feature one of, or part of one of the homonculi from Fullmetal Alchemist.
[]Icon(s) must be fresh and at the most seven days old. This means you cannot submit icons that have been submitted to other or previous icontests.
[]Submit with both the image and URL as a comment to this screened post.

Deadline: Friday, June 16th @ 9:00pm EST (6:00pm PST)

P.S. If you're trying to achieve the one color effect, one method that I would suggest would be to create a new layer over your image. Fill that layer with the color of your choice and set that layer's blending mode to Color. This is for Photoshop though, so I'm not entirely sure if it'll work on PSP. If you want to know how to do this another way, I'd suggest going to icon_tutorial.
