Winners for week 19 are under this post I'm too lazy to link to it :P. Here is week 20, make sure to get those entries in! :D

Theme #1: Classroom

This might be similar to a previous challenge, I can't remember along with being too lazy to check..., but it's fairly simple: just make an icon that somehow has a classroom in its background. The theatre doesn't count, the hallways don't count, the gym doesn't count, and the outside of school doesn't count. It must be a classroom. I will accept icons that have the Scholastic Decathalon room in it, since it resembles a classroom in my opinion. Mrs. Darbus's homeroom works too.

Theme #2: Green

Totally simple. Just make an icon that has to do with the color green. It can have the word 'green' in it, be green, have green textures/brushes, etc. If you feel like your icon needs explanation, feel free to give one.

something's not rightCollapse )

Week 19 Voting (again) [November 04, 2006 @ 12:01am]

smile_with_care
[ mood | mellow ]

So, week 19 voting has been up for over two weeks, and I think only two people have voted. So, please, go vote! Voting is right under this post. It only takes a second, and one vote can make a difference. :D I know I've totally been sucky on maintaining the community, but I promise to put up week 20's challenge on Sunday. So, see you then, and please VOTE! ;)

[ mood | cheerful ]

Voting for week 19. I know I left up the challenge for two weeks; I was super-busy and I wanted to give everyone more time to put in entries. Anyways, here's week 19 voting under the cut. Eleven pretty icons, so there's a bonus category. :)

first voting post in over a month! (more like two)Collapse )

*Pick the three that you thought were best, and pick an icon for the special category - Best Color That means pick four different icons.
*Don't vote for yourself, don't get your friends to vote for you - keep it fair. :)
*Voting ends on Sunday, October 22, at 9 PM PST (don't hesitate to vote if results aren't posted by then!).
*Check back Sunday at 10 PM PST for the next challenge!

Week 19 Challenge [October 09, 2006 @ 10:14pm]

smile_with_care
[ mood | ecstatic ]

I know there was a week 19 challenge before, but that was weeks ago, and I cancelled it because lack of entries. So, new week 19. I hope we get lots of entries (it's an easy challenge :D).

Theme #1: Already-Made Icons

Yes, I know that in the rules it says that all icons must be fresh for the week. But, just for this week, I want to jump-start the community again with an easier challenge. So, this week, the theme is to submit a premade icon that has not been submitted in previous/ANY icontests (basically one that you've made for a random HSM icon post in the past that you've never entered in any sort of icontest). No specific themes, just HSM-related to an extent.

If you're new to icon making/don't have any good past icons/just want to make icons, feel free to submit new icons. :D Consider this week a free-for-all with added bonus.

Not dead, just super-busy. [October 03, 2006 @ 10:47pm]

I don't know how many people actually check the community now probably none, but I just wanted to let it be known that I haven't died yet. I've been completely swamped with stuff, no joke ( I don't get to come home until 9 PM for the next two nights....). But I really am going to try my absolute best to REALLY make this community active again over the weekend (restart challenges, banners, etc.). Hopefully I'll be back with updates this weekend. :D

Week 18 Results [September 19, 2006 @ 9:22pm]

smile_with_care
[ mood | distressed ]

Long story short, internet's been down for all week. Results for week 18 under the cut, congrats to the winners! :D

dreams do come trueCollapse )

Again, congratulations! Uh, I probably shouldn't say anything about banners. They are so incredibly overdue by now, it's not funny. I'm just so swamped with rehersal and AP classes, it's been icky. But one day, I swear that I'm going to sit down with my GIMP for a few hours and just do those banners! Just not now. :/

And about week 19, there were only 3 entries, I think. I think I'm just going to cancel that challenge, leave this week off, and start fresh again on Sunday night. :)

Extensions for Voting/Challenges and Other Stuff [September 11, 2006 @ 6:53pm]

smile_with_care
[ mood | exhausted ]

Gosh, I'm a horrible mod. I haven't been on all this week (icky internet connection, very busy schedule, etc.). Anyways, we only received a couple of votes in for week 18, so a couple more votes would be nice (please take a minute!).

And I'm putting an extension on week 19 challenge (only got a couple entries in for that, too). Please take some time to get an icon or two in for this challenge. :D

And, banners. Yeah. I haven't done them. I'm so swamped with rehersals and homework, they probably won't be out for quite a while (at least until voting results are in for week 18). For all of you who are tired of waiting, I encourage you to pay a visit to custom_banners or a similar community. They make wonderful banners in great time. :)

Again, sorry for all the delay and temporary-ish hiatus the community has been on. See you all, hopefully, with more votes and entries in by Friday! ;D

Week 19 Challenge [September 03, 2006 @ 11:11pm]

smile_with_care
Week 18 voting here, sorry about lateness. Anyways, about those banners.... yeah. I am going to get to them someday, but I don't blame you if you go to custom_banners.

Theme 1: East High School

Since next week (Tuesday for me) is back to school for a lot of us, I figured this theme was appropriate. So make an icon that takes place on the campus of East High School. That's the only requirement for this icon.

Theme 2: Dreary

Another one of those one-word themes. Just make an icon that has something to do with the word dreary. It can have the word in it, it can just look dreary, it can be the opposite of dreary, etc.

Week 18 Extension [August 27, 2006 @ 10:29pm]

smile_with_care
[ mood | itchy (bugbitten & sunburnt) ]

Only got two icons in for week 18, so I'll extend it another week because I'm too lazy to think of a new challenge. So, please take the time to get in an icon or two for week 18 sometime this week, won't you? ;D

And, banners.... yeah. Life sucks right now (between cramming AP summer work and band camp), so sorry about the long wait. They'll come, eventually. By the way, for the people who used those colored boxes in their winning icons, where did you get them? I found some, but I didn't like them. Greatly appreciated if anyone would point me in the direction of some good colored box brushes. :)

Week 17 Results [August 21, 2006 @ 11:29pm]

Banners will be up eventually. xD Might be tomorrow, or two weeks, depending on my schedule and laziness.

Week 18 Challenge [August 21, 2006 @ 11:14pm]

smile_with_care
[ mood | peaceful ]

Oops, totally forgot to post the new challenge yesterday. xD Hope none of you were planning on submitting last night. :) Sorry if the lateness interfered with your schedule or anything. And week 17 results will be posted in a sec.

Theme 1: Famous Quote

"All of our dreams can come true." - Walt Disney

Besides breaking free from expectations, I think one of the themes of HSM was believing that dreams can come true. So, using the quote above, make an icon inspired by it. It doesn't have to have any words of the quote in it. If you think your icon needs an explanation, feel free to give one. :)

Theme 2: Rain

Totally self-explanatory. Just make an icon that has something to do with rain. It can have the word in it, or it can have a saying that refers to rain (ex: 'rain, rain, go away'), you can use rain textures, etc. This is another theme that depends on your imagination.

Week 17 Challenge [August 14, 2006 @ 7:35am]

smile_with_care
[ mood | blah ]

Eh, a few hours late, but I couldn't get on the computer. :/ Anyways, here is the next challenge, and I hope you all make a little room in your schedule to submit an icon or two. :D And banners will be posted after this, I swear! xD

Theme 1: Splash of Color

This was an idea suggested by sown at the opening of the community, and I thought it was cool. :) So, the basic format is to make a black and white icon with a little color on it (AKA the 'splash of color'). This can be done in a number of ways, from light textures to colored font to choosing a specific part of the icon to be in color (a shirt, lips, eyes, etc.).
Remember that the majority (at least 50%) of the icon must be black and white! Of course, questions can be directed to this entry. ;)

Theme 2: Bold

This is a really broad theme. It can be interperted in SO many ways! Bold color, bold textures/brushes, bold as part of text, and so forth. There should be no problem in thinking of an icon that fits this theme.

Week 16 Voting? [August 13, 2006 @ 5:56am]

smile_with_care
[ mood | hungry ]

Eh, two weeks and only three icons. No voting this week, I'm afraid. After I post voting tomorrow, I'll try advertising the community and see if we can't get more entries next week. :D Week 15 banners are also late, but I will have them up before the weekend is over, I promise that.

PIMP: Check out fluff_lyrical! It's a great lyrical icontest based on couples from any video game, animated movie, anime, or cartoon, and with great mods. :D And I know all of you are interested in at least one of the mentioned categories. ;)
