[I have split this topic off from the original general discussion thread so more people will see it and so people can find it more easily. -- RSS]

OK, I've gotten lots of good responses, so let's start the challenge!  Based on your feedback, here are the rules for this round:

Avatar Design Challenge Rules (Beta Version!)

  • Challenge begins on the 20th of each month.  You do not have to "register" or otherwise state your intent to play, but it's nice if you do so so I can see what kind of response the theme is getting.

  • The challenge theme will be chosen by the winner of the previous round.  It will be posted in its own post.  Please quote this post when asking questions about the theme, and when posting your entries.  This was I can keep everything vaguely organized.  Wink

  • Players have three weeks to submit their design (specific due date will be posted).  Please submit your entries by uploading them to an image service such as Photobucket, and then inlining them into a reply to the challenge theme post (use [img] ... [/img]).  Also, post your idea for the next month's theme with your entry, so we can keep everything on schedule.

  • Voting will take place between the end of the challenge and the beginning of the next round.  All interested members are encouraged to vote for their favorites.  The winner and new theme will be announced on the first day of the next round.

  • Please review the Avatar Guidelines and be sure your entry meets them.  Also, please do not use copyrighted images when making your entry, unless you have permission from the copyright holder.

  • By participating in the challenge, you are giving the other Full Members permission to use your entry as their avatar.  Please don't enter avatars that you don't want others to use.  Exception: you may enter your own personal avatar if it was made new for the contest.

During this round, please feel free to give feedback on these rules.  I'll tweak them for the next round if necessary.  I'll post the theme for June/July a little later today when I finish work.

I'll post the theme for June/July a little later today when I finish work.

Or now, as my coteacher just cancelled our class. Smiley

Avatar Design Challenge Round 1 starts today, June 20, and ends on July 11 (let's go with UTC/GMT since everyone's in different time zones).

For the first challenge, we'll do a very broad, but timely theme: Summer.  This can include the summer solstice and other holidays that occur in the summertime, deities associated with summer, etc.  Yeah, I know its obvious, but I know you guys will come up with some great interpretations.

Have fun! Cheesy

P.S. I'm thinking of making the voting a separate thread with a poll.  Does anyone know if you can add multiple polls to one thread, or delete a poll and add a new one?

I think that you can't put multiple polls on one thread, but can delete the poll and add a new one.  Not 100% sure though.  Might be something to play with on the "testing" board to find out.  Smiley

Looks I'm gonna have to submit mine a smidge early because I'll be on various planes over the next 24-48 hours.  Smiley

I came up with three original designs and had a heck of a time choosing, so this one is submitted via the popular vote of my family:

Garden Swim




My vote for theme: Magic Spells (I know, broad and probably a bit corny, but I think it'd make for some neat avatars especially in this crowd.  Wink)

I can't wait to see what everyone came up with! This is fun  Cheesy (Good idea whoever-originally-suggested-it.  Grin)

**Edited to Add: You can see the other two designs on my live journal which you can access via the link in my profile, feel free to use any of them if you like  Smiley. **

I don't think it's any problem to submit early, better than late! Smiley  It looks great, by the way.

That reminds me, I'm making a last minute trip to China before I leave Asia, and I'll be there on the 20th, the start of the next challenge.  I expect to be able to handle it from there as I'll need to send e-mails and upload photos anyway, but perhaps I could get a volunteer to start the July/August thread in case I'm unable to?  Pretty please?

And today's the day, so here's mine:

Tao te Sweets:


My topic idea for next month is: Images evoking paths or journeys.

I can't wait to see the rest! Smiley

ETA: These are the images I used to create the composite: 1 2 3 4 5 6
