Challenge 12: My Best Friend

Keep voting dears! :D I want to keep this moving, so I'm putting up the next submission post now.

Challenge 12: My Best Friend

During the best and worst moments of a party, you look to your best friend to either bail you out or to go crazy right next to you. This week, you have to pick a character, any character, who you would most like to be best friends with and icon them in a flattering, positive way (no depressing icons, but they can be beautiful/funny/happy/positive!). Pretty easy and open-ended, there are no limitations! But your icon can only feature one character.

Are you up for a little gamble? If you so choose (meaning it is not mandatory), you may adhere to slight stricter guidelines for this challenge. If you want to take a gamble, your icon of your best friend must use this texture by white_lilie, and ONLY that texture. You can use other techniques, but no other textures. If you make an icon that fits these specifications, you are put into a different voting table and are eligible for 700 gil. There will only be one winner of 700 gil, and if you make the gamble icon, you are not eligible for standard placing. Will you take the risk?

Reminder

I don't want to have to extend this challenge because I don't want to make this contest any longer than it has already been. Please consider submitting this week. We have 2 icons for the normal table and 2 for the gamble - your odds of winning are extremely high!

Challenge 11: Super-Special Events

So the vote ended up being 17-7 in favor of continuing this competition, and I'm really grateful that so many people are still interested in this comm. ♥ I promise - five more weeks and we're done. No more interruptions!

Challenge 11: Super-Special Events

Everyone knows the biggest shindigs occur with three different types of milestones in the course of a lifetime - weddings, babies, and funerals. Your icon this week must feature a scene related to weddings, babies or funerals/death.

Are you up for a little gamble? There's a secondary aspect to this challenge. If you so choose (meaning it is not mandatory), you may adhere to slightly stricter guidelines for this challenge. If you want to take a gamble, your icon of weddings, babies and funerals must be entirely black and white with only one visible color. It must have one color other than black/white. If you make an icon that fits these specifications, you are put into a different voting table and are eligible for 700 gil. There will only be one winner of 700 gil, and if you make the gamble icon, you are not eligible for standard placing. Will you take the risk?

I believe gil totals are complete and accurate. Please check your total and make sure it fits with your own calculations.

Crossroads

I am extremely sorry for the probable death of this community. Life interfered in a serious way, and I had no idea that I would lose interest and patience for this community in such an extreme way. I honestly have not had the time or the energy for the running of this community in the past month and a half, and I'm sorry for postponing this contest because of my problems.

We have three options for the fate of this community, so I'm putting it to a poll. I have the time now to continue, and I have five more challenges planned for the remainder of this round, so that this icontest can resume as planned and finish within the first week or so of February. Another option is to do a big blow-out final challenge to determine the winner - the values of gil earned would equate with five weeks of work, but you are only responsible for one more round of play. The last option is to end the contest now, meaning that current gil totals (after I tabulate them) would be the final results.

Poll #1323172 The fate of FF Party
This poll is closed.

What would you like to do about this round?

End it now.
0(0.0%)
Final challenge.
7(29.2%)
Finish the rest of the rounds.
17(70.8%)


I will close the poll on January 4th, at which point I will either post a new challenge with explanations as to the completion of the icontest, or the final results. Thanks for your time.

The next challenge will probably be up tomorrow so that we can stay on-task. Details will be coming soon - it'll be a two-week challenge, so don't worry my fellow Americans - turkey day festitivities will not be spoiled. Also, feel free to calculate in your ff_oscars nomination gil when figuring if you can buy an Ultimate Weapon. I will get to update both of those tomorrow when six hours of sleep before school is not looming ominously over my head :3

Update 11/20

This is just a midweek reminder that you have until Saturday to get your icons in :] We have 5 right now, but I'm being a little lax this week because we have to climb back into the routine.

SUBMIT RAWR~

In other news, I miss the Team involvement D: I would love to see stuff going on at each of the communities to kind of get people excited again - I'm going to be coming out with a team-type challenge soon, so it's important that everyone plays!
