FIRST: AWZ/10 IN 10/ICON CHALLENGE  

We’ve been having such A GREAT TIME with this asylum, and you have made your MODS SO happy with all the shiny things we have seen lately. And, uhm, hallo, the SEXYS? AWESOME! (Even if some of us lost to that Dennis Grabosch, but are not by any counts bitter) The Celine Laffort NDFUG Fic Challenge? HAHAHAHA, WE WANT MORE CRACKY FICS! OMG YOU GUYS!!!

So now, July is here and we thought we would throw something else your way. (Yes, this is a shameless attempt to take your mind momentarily away from the woobie crying your eyes out because OMG show is making us suffer like the broken fangirls we are and the heartbreak.) 

So, we bring you the 1st ever (and hopefully not the last): 



AWZ/10 IN 10/ICON CHALLENGE

10in10? Is this another Steinkamp plot? No, well…sort of. Mostly we are greedy and we want your icons, so GIEF! NAO! Hahaha! We think this is going to be tons of fun, and it is completely open to ALL levels of icon makers! It’s a FANTASTIC way to find some time in our busy and tragic lives to just be creative! So, don’t stay in the sidelines, come on over and participate, and share in the crack!

OVERALL INFO

How does this work? Well, it’s quite simple actually. You will have 10 days to make 10 icons featuring the challenge requirements. Each icon will belong to a specific category. The icon requirements will be posted on July 10th and your 10 days will start on July 11th.

VOTING:

EVERYONE IS A WINNER IN OUR EYES! HAHAHAHAH! But basically, we will be voting in categories. This means that we will have 10 winners, one per EACH icon category. (OMG THAT’S HOW MANY BANNERS? HAHAHAHA)

I've never made an animated icon. Mine have all be static so far. I just figured out how to maybe make them in that free program someone (was it you?) recommended in their tutorial. Photoscape or some such thing? Anyway, there's an "Animated something or other" tab at the top, and it just lets you put in however many pictures you want, and then adjust how fast they flash. As far as I can tell (I'll let you know once I've tried it) you just make an icon for each frame you want in the gif, then add them in order to the animated thingie...

WOW I AM HELPFUL! I SHOULD TOTES WRITE A "HOW TO MAKE AN ANIMATED GIFS WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW HOW" TUTORIAL, WHERE I'M ALL "LET'S TRY THIS FUNCTION. OK, LOOKS LIKE IT MADE THE GIF FLASH, THAT'S A GOOD START. OK, NOW LET'S TRY THIS FUNCTION... OH MY GOD NO! OK, DON'T EVER TRY THAT FUNCTION UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR ICON TO GIVE PEOPLE SEIZURES. NOW LET'S TRY THIS FUNCTION. OH WOW, THAT'S A NEAT EFFECT... HEY GUYS I JUST FIGURED OUT HOW TO TAKE CLOTHES OUT OF A PICTURE, AWESOME!" Y/Y? ;D

VIDEO CAPTURE? *FACEPALM* YES, I SUPPOSE THAT WOULD BE EASIER THAN INCHING THROUGH A SCENE SCREENCAPPING EVERY FRAME. YEESH.
