Ask The Maker 2017 banner at icontalking


It's time for our next activity!

This time, it's not an icon challenge, it's Ask The Maker!

Ask The Maker is where you can ask your favorite makers about how they do that thing. You can ask for tutorials, guides/"How to", or ask any other questions related to their work. Check out the Maker thread (below) for makers who have signed up and are ready to answer your questions.

This time, you can also ask questions to the community at large, and hope that someone is able to answer them. Do this in the Questions thread (below).

Ask The Maker is one of the most popular yearly activites for iconmakers on LJ and it always takes place in June. Who knows, maybe it'll turn into a tradition here on DW, too?

The results of the poll we did here this month were tied on doing it maker-driven or question-driven, so there's going to be both! :D I've taken the rules for the maker-driven part directly from the original comm [livejournal.com profile] icon_talk. I hope they are working for everyone. The second part is all new, let's see how it goes!

1) Maker-Driven

Here are the results of our second activity! 11 makers helped create a huge rainbow set. Hover over the icons to see the fandom names.

All comments on this post here are very welcome! Praise, pick favorites, squee about all the beautiful rainbows!

Inspiration & Textures )

Rules:

* Make a rainbow! It works like this:

* Choose five consecutive colors from the color bands in the inspiration section above and make five icons in these five colors

* Each icon has to be primarily in that one color, but not strictly monochrome, as you can tell from the inspiration examples.
* You may (but don't have to) use the textures provided in the middle part of the inspiration section.
* If you can't finish your set, it is okay to enter fewer than five icons, but the colors of the icons you enter still need to be consecutive.
* Please submit your icons (icons and URLs) to this post, all in one comment (if possible).
* Everyone can participate, you don't have to be a member of this community.

* I collect all the icons from the comments and make a result post
* Everyone can leave comments on the inspiration and activity result posts
* There is no voting

Deadline: Saturday, June 17 2017, your end-of-day

Our first activity was a full success! We have no fewer than 14 gorgeous entries! Hover over the icons to see the fandom names.

For everyone who added comments and explanations, those are visible each under their own cuts - including a link to each maker's submission thread, if you want to comment to the makers directly.

Of course you can also comment on this post here, praise, pick favorites, and generally squee about the beautiful icons! *G*

By popular request, there are going to be icon challenges in this community. Since I don't like the word "battle", and there is really nothing competitive about them, I'm going to call them "activities".

These activities will work like this:

* I make a post with all the information you need
* You have three weeks to make icons and post them in a comment to the information post (not screened)
* I collect all the icons (and whatever you have to say about them) from the comments and make a result post
* There is no voting
* Everyone can leave comments on the inspiration and activity summary posts

My current plan is to run one such activity per month, but we'll see how it goes and if you even like what I come up with.

But now, on to our first activity! What better way to get to know each other than by showing each other what fandoms we like:



For this activity, you should make five icons. You have until May 20th (end of day) to submit your icons as comments to this post.

INFO and INSPIRATION )


Some notes:

* It is okay to enter fewer than five icons (but the final results post will look nicer if every slot is filled :)).
* Please submit your icons (icons and URLs) to this post, all in one comment (if possible).
* You don't have to icon five different fandoms. If your first fandom happens to be a tiny fandom and your true love, no problem!
* Everyone can participate, you don't have to be a member of this community.
* For each icon, please add at least the name of the fandom to your comment.
* Feel free to tell us more about what you like about the fandom, or what makes it special for you, in your submission!

Deadline: Saturday, May 20 2017, your end-of-day
