HBIC 20in20

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
You will have 20 days to make 20 icons featuring a female ass-kicking character known as the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge). You can see more examples HERE, HERE and HERE.

There will be 3 types of sets:
1. 10 default themes: These change with each monthly challenge.
2. 5 icon set following one category: All of these have similar themes. For example, if the category is emotions, each icon must portray a different emotion.
3. 5 icon set of Artist's Choice: You get to make any icon, any theme as long as it fits with your claim.

★ Sometimes "special rounds" are offered where these sets vary.

About The Challenges:
•Themes: The themes set will have 10 themes like you would see in an 100 icon challenge.
•Category: All icons in this set have one specific theme.
•Artist's Choice: Any 5 icons, as long as they fit with your claim.

•Themes: Each theme has one winner. For example, if the theme is happy, every happy icon will be in a poll and you vote on the best.
•Category: These will stay in the sets that the creator made, and will be voted on as sets that the creator made. Each category has a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.
•Artist's Choice: These will be voted on in the same way the category icons are voted on. Each Artist Choice has a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner.

•For each challenge, you must choose a female HBIC.

•Only one icon maker can have each character per round.

•You must choose a different character each round. For example, if you choose Kate Beckett for Round 1, you can't choose her again for Round 2. You can choose her again for Round 3 though.

•You can only enter once per challenge: one set of 20 icons only.

•Your icons need to be made specifically for this challenge. No previous work is allowed.

•You can post your icons before voting goes up.

•All members have posting access, but it is moderated. You are only allowed to post to your set.

•All entries are tagged by a moderator.

•All entries have headings: round, claim(what claim is from), username
*If your heading is incorrect, your post will be rejected - with an explanation. After you've fixed it, you will re-post and it will be approved if it is correct.

•When you're finished, you can post all your icons here, or you can post a preview and link to your journal. However, the entry you link to must be public.

•Vote fairly. Don't ask anyone to vote for you, and don’t vote for your favorite character just because she's your favorite. Vote for the best set/icons.

•Your icons must adhere to LiveJournal standards. That means they must be under 40kb, 100x100 and saved as a .png, .gif, or .jpg file format.

•Animated icons are not allowed for this community.

•Adult images are allowed for this community, but make sure there is proper warning
and an lj-cut. Spoiler icons are also allowed, with the same rule.
