joining icon contest communities. I blame this solely on [ profile] abrynne. She kept post about them, so I joined [ profile] movie_stillness, entered a couple of contests, have yet to win but I'm having fun.

So in the last week I've joined:
[ profile] scifi_stillness
[ profile] buffy_stillness
[ profile] hp_stillness
[ profile] snape_stillness
[ profile] stargate_still
[ profile] starwars_stills
[ profile] sw_lims (just watching this round, intend to participate in the next)
[ profile] james_stillness
[ profile] rickman_stills

Now all I have to do is sit down and get with the icon making. Oh dear.

Edit: Seriously, stop me now. Now joined and participating in [ profile] chosen_lims

Oh hey now! That's a tad harsh LOL

Oh! An HP LIMS group?! Gah! Can't, can't, can't...won't, won't!

Did you do the header graphic thing for [ profile] movie_stillness? I entered mine earlier this week. That's one of the cooler things about that group, I think.
Lurv the SW groups :D

It's a good thing :) I need motivation to do graphics stuff and these contests are just the thing.

It's a stillness group that's running a lims challenge right now. Which I joined too late to get in on, which is fine with me.

I haven't tried the header graphic thing. I'll do that next round perhaps. Right now I'm just trying to get enough creative energy to make icons for the rest of the contests.

Hmmm, that sounds like a good idea actually. I may see if the members want to try the same thing in my Firefly group.

Could be fun :)

I'm only in two... I don't think I could do much more than that.

I like too many fandoms. And I won't enter every contest every time. But I need the push and inspiration for doing icons, so I join communities.

um... I don't want to sound stupid, but how do you make icons? I mean, what programs or whatever do you use? I've made a few icons before in the photoeditor on my computer, but it's not a very good program for icons and the icons are just plain and nothing great. any advice would be appreciated. :)

and wow!- won't you be busy making icons for a while! ;)

I use Photoshop, some people use PaintShopPro. You add texture, text, sometiems color. Tutorials are the best way to go for a beginner.

Yep, I'll be very, very busy :)

If you want me to, I could ban you from two of the above icon contests. ;)

*grin* Naw - thanks for offering though. I just won't participate in every contest every time :)
