Spark2 Entry [02 Sep 2004|07:00pm]

[ mood | artistic ]

I thought I might as well give it a go. I have one icon of Trixie and Lou but it's meant to be mostly Trixie.

This song really has so many possibilities, great choice :)

So here are...erm.... 6 new icons (I should be ill more often, it obviously makes me creative!)

Now really someone stop me before I go completely OTT!

[ mood | creative ]

Just two for now. There may be more.

1. 2.

1. "Cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more."
2. "I only want the same as anyone."

Images from erinsborough.net and AussieCelebs.net.

ETA: This is just a brief outline of what I did on these icons: when I’ve got more time I’ll do an icon from scratch and do a tutorial along with. Read more...Collapse )

Spark 2. [30 Aug 2004|07:08am]

[ mood | crazy ]

Lyrical one this week as it saves me having to find a screencap.

*clicks shuffle on playlist*

Rain King - Counting Crows.

Full lyrics.Collapse )

Hopefully there's a lyric there for everyone! A quote from the song must appear on the icon (even if it's only a couple of words, or unreadable.)

Briefly: I'm save the entries to my photobucket account each week, just so you know where they're going. I'm not posting them anywhere but here. If you could save your icons as yourusername_spark(no) that would be really helpful - it's not a big deal renaming them atm, but as we get more entries (which we *will* be doing... right guys? :P) it'll be more time-consuming. And more likely I'll forget who's is who. If you enter more than one icon, yourusername_spark2_a (b,c etc). Thanks guys!

Entries open until 8pm(GMT) Friday 3rd September.

Don't forget to vote on last weeks entries - voting open until 8pm(GMT) Tuesday 31st August.

(Also of this of course depends on my internet connection behaving itself this week. Gah! Stupid thing.)

Right. Go! Create!

Votin' time! [29 Aug 2004|07:52pm]

Argh! Stupid internet connection.

Sorry for late closing of this challenge.

I was going to get people to vote for they're top three icons, but as we only had three entries, everyone just reply to this post with the number of your fave. 1, 2 or 3.

Entries!Collapse )

Voting will stay open until 8pm(GMT) Tuesday 31st August. (Or thereabouts.) I'll post a new challenge later today.

Firstly? I apologise for picking such a difficult cap. I don't know where my brain was.

Anyway. My attempt. Trying a different style, don't think it worked, really, but it was fun to do. :)

A couple of icons [23 Aug 2004|09:45pm]

First 'spark.' Bit of an unusual cap, thought we might as well do something different!

Episode 4488. Thanks to e.net!Collapse )

So, text or textless is fine. Animation is fine - but this picture has to be the main focus. Same rule applies if you want to incorporate other pictures into a still image.

Open for entries till Friday 27th August.

Have fun guys!

Welcome to nicon_spark! This is a community to inspire makers of Neighbours icons anyway we can. Every Sunday a new challenge (screecap, lyrics, etc) will be posted. Challenges are open till Friday, after which people can vote for their favorite. Voting closed on a Sunday, when a new challenge is posted.

You cna enter as many icons as you like in each challenges - the emphasis is on creativity. Discussion about techniques/tips/advice is all welcome, but can you keep it to the comments threads of whichever icon you're discussing? If you have a specific question icon_tutorial is a good place to start.

Uh, any questions/comments/suggestions, post them here. If you have an idea for a challenge post them here too!

Have fun and happy icon making!
