Community description:An icon challenge with weekly tutorials
The idea of this community is to share ideas and techniques with other icon makers, by participation in a regular icon-making challenge. The winner of each challenge will be required to post a tutorial demonstrating how the winning icon was created. In addition, Pensnest will usually invite another participant to post an 'invitation tutorial', and occasionally it'll be possible for anyone to request a tutorial of a specific icon.

Participants: bear in mind while you're making your icon that you may be asked to make a tutorial! Keep the unflattened file, and if necessary, make notes.

When entering a challenge, you may submit one or two icons (unless otherwise stated). Please post the image and url in comments in the usual way (if you need to know how to do this, please ask Pen via

When posting a tutorial, please begin by stating which graphics program was used to create the icon. Use as many or as few images as you wish. Please do not include a .psd (or equivalent) file, although a screencap of the layers palette is a good idea. Credit resource makers for any textures, brushes etc you have used. For the moment I have set posting access to Moderated, so that if I have any questions about your tutorial I can let you know before it goes public. We'll see how that works out. Quite a few people have now been granted posting access without moderation.
