Quick reminder for those of you who have the time to be making icons at this time of year—Challenge #123 is here and is all about PENGUINS. And who doesn't love penguins?

You have at least another week to enter.

This will be the last challenge of this year, as my own timetable is filling up crazily as Christmas nears, and that's probably true for many of you, too.

It's another 'find your own pics' challenge, this time on a theme of...

Penguins! )
I'm... not actually quite sure when I will post voting. Probably on Sunday 11th December, so you have loads of time to hunt down some penguin pics and have fun with them.

Meanwhile you still have until tomorrow morning to enter Challenge 122.

Voting will close on Friday morning.

The next challenge will be up next Saturday morning. Meanwhile, a reminder that I'm hoping some of you will post images—animé and screencaps particularly welcome—that could be used in future challenges Post here if you have anything that might be suitable.

This set was made in PS5 (on a Mac), using basically Filters and Layer Modes. The specifics may not be available in other programs or versions of Photoshop, but the general method is available to anyone.

Challenge #121 is open until midnight-your-time this Saturday. Anyone for Halloween icons?

Four entries so far.

I'm not doing banners for this one, since unfortunately the winner of both icon and texture challenges was me (icon #5 and texture #1). I'll put tutorials up as soon as I have a chance.

I would like to invite both [livejournal.com profile] immortalje and [livejournal.com profile] wunderkind_lucy to put up a tutorial for either or both their texture sets, as I like to see how other people go about making these things.

The Halloween challenge is supposed to close this Sunday morning, so that you'll still have time after the voting to use the Halloween icons you make if you want to.

So far, no entries. I can of course extend the challenge for another week, and will do so if there aren't enough entries for a vote by Sunday morning.

Sorry this is late—I really wasn't sure if it was worth putting one up, but am encouraged to do so.

Halloween ) In order to allow you to use them for Halloween if you want to, this week I will close entries and post voting on Sunday 23rd October. Voting will close on the following Friday morning.

Meanwhile, don't forget to vote on Challenge #120.

Many thanks to the entrants who made this into a competition instead of a display. :-)
Voting this way. )
Voting will close on Friday morning, 21st October.

I was all set to give up on Challenge #120, but someone has entered! I'll probably not be putting up the voting until around 2pm tomorrow, so you have a few hours... go for it!

PS If anyone has difficulties with the texture frame, try changing it from Image>Mode>Indexed Color to RGB Color. I'm not sure why that happens...

Challenge #120 is up until midnight on Saturday, and still awaiting any entries. Anyone?
