10 different icons from one image - can you do it?
There are no more claims, as we've opened up the community. Simply go ahead and post your icon sets. For more information, see this post.


the challenge
You have to choose one image. The goal of the challenge is to make 10 different icons from the same image. The original image has to be recognizeable in every icon. The icons will have to differ from each other visibly in cropping or style. (That is the rule of thumb so you cannot go and make ten different icons by making one and then only change the color, text or y'know, small things.) Aside from that, there are some restrictions that apply to each icon.

01. In the first icon you have to use the original image unresized.
02. In the second icon you have to rotate the original image.
03. In the third icon you have to desaturate the original image (unless it's already b/w).
04. In the fourth icon you have to mirror the original image either horizontally or vertically.
05. In the fifth icon you have to use the original image at least twice noticeably.
06. In the sixth icon you have to alter the color of the original image (b/w images have to be colored in, color images may be desaturated).
07. In the seventh icon you have to be able to see the whole original image.
08. In the eighth icon you have to use at least one texture or stock image.
09. In the ninth icon you have to use only the original image (use no text, brushes, gradients or other images). Adjustment layers and layer effects are allowed.
10. In the tenth icon you have to make the two sides of the icon differ in length (ie no square). The ICON people, NOT the picture in the icon!

We now have an additional set of rules, for those bored of the standard ones!

All icons must meet the usual LJ icon restrictions.

The image you select:

  • should not be altered before you start iconing, except for maybe adjusting the contrast/saturation and resizing it

  • can be a piece of fanart if the artist has explicitly granted permission

You have 10 days to make the icons. All of them must be new and created specifically for this challenge.

This community is here for you to post your completed icon sets and look at the sets others have done. It used to be run by your friendly mods nebulein and theaeblackthorn.

the claims
You no longer have to claim a picture. Simply go ahead, make your icons and post them here.

the posts
When posting the icons you are asked to use the following format:

Please make the subject of your post Category: Sub-category: Subject
You have been assigned these when your claim was approved. For posting examples check out the other posts in this community. Please also include the following claim information in your post outside of any cuts.



All icons must be posted together in one post. Please use LJ-cuts with either the first two icons outside of the cut, or a thumbnail of the original image. This allows us to organize all the icon posts easily. Feel free to tag your entries with the appropriate tags. Each post should have two tags: one for the claim category and one for the rule set you've chosen.
