100 Icon Challenge - Comic Strips

Posting Access:
Select Members
This is a 100 Icon Challenge specifically for newspaper comic strips.


1) JOIN COMMUNITY - No membership = No participation
2) CLAIM A SUBJECT - Go here (http://www.livejournal.com/community/comicstrip_100/362.html#cutid1) to claim your subject
3) Once approved, MAKE 100 ICONS OF YOUR SUBJECT - Post icons in small batches, or all at once
4) Once you have completed the challenge, COMMENT AT "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" POST - Your username will be posted here, and your subject will be up for grabs again.


[x] The subject focus that's allowed in this community are newspaper/web comic strips or comic strip characters. For more information on rules pertaining to the subjects, please refer to the subject claim post.

[x] Each subject may only be claimed by one person at any given time. You are allowed a span of 10 weeks to complete the 100 icons for your subject, though of course it'd be nice if you finish them sooner than that. :) This is done so that one person isn't just hogging a subject all the time without making the icons. To prevent "fake claimes", you should post at least your first batch within the first 2 weeks of claiming a subject.

[x] Each person may claim only one subject at a time.

[x] All 100 icons must contain your subject in them. That's the whole point isn't it? Your icon can include other characters as long as your subject is in the icon as well. While this is allowed, I would recommend you to do it sparingly and to please remember to try and keep your icons focused on your subject.

[x] You do not have to post 100 icons in one go. You can break them up into smaller batches...say about a minimum of 6 or more per post so that the community won't clog up everyone's friends pages with single icon posts. Please put your icons behind a cut! You are allowed to preview up to 3 icons outside of the cut. And before you ask, yes...you're allowed to do fake cuts if you wish- all I ask is that you state clearly that it's a fake cut.

[x] If your icon contains questionable rating content, please post a noticeable warning and place all of those icons behind a cut. You MUST do this! And while I know this should be pretty obvious, please no porn movies. :p

[x] Please make new icons for this challenge. It defeats the point and isn't much fun if you just dig out old icons you have of your subject and post them as part of your 100 icons. :p Also, while icon makers of all levels are welcome...please put effort into your icons. Don't just crop a picture and slap text on it. You're supposed to be devoted to your subject, so show it in your icons! :)

[x] Out of the 100 icons you make, part of the challenge is to make 50 of them following a particular set of themes. These themes are included down below and can be taken pretty much any way you like. You can use them as the text on your icon or you can use it purely as an abstract interpretation. For example, in the "red" theme, your icon can represent that theme in terms of the actual color of your icon...or if red reminds you of anger as in seeing red, your icon can show anger, etc. Be creative! :)

So basically, 50 of your icons are free choice, meaning you can do whatever you like with it as long as it pertains to your subject. And the other 50 has to follow a given set of themes to make it a bit more challenging. :) Note: You do not have to make your icons in the order of these themes. You can make them in any order but each theme can only be counted once. Don't make 5 icons of one theme and skip some other themes entirely.

Please know that these themes are included for extra fun and challenge. There's no theme police around here to determine if your icon qualifies under said theme. All in all, just have fun with them. :)

[x] When posting your icons to the community, please do it in this format:

Subject: (if it's a character, please include the comic name as well, like "Les Moore from Funky Winkerbean")
Themes: (the themes that you are using in your icons, if any)
Additonal Notes: (like credits, disclaimers, your rules of usage if someone wants to use your icons, etc.)

And then your icons, of course. It would also help greatly if you could include the batch number and/or how many icons you've completed so far. This just helps everyone see how far you've progressed.
