Hey guys.

Okay, the extension got us only two more entries... Meaning we have six... Which isn't as many as I would of liked but considering how swamped nearly everyone is with school work, it'll have to do.

It's play timeCollapse )

I think it's _day_dreams theme next.

_day_dreams I'm not sure who is next to post up the next theme, but since no one is posting anyway. I shall post up this next theme. Week 50's theme is

Promises

.

I'm pretty sure we haven't done this before. But, this up for interpretation. You can use the text as for "promise" or use syn to illustrate the idea. You could even use two hands, holding or something. A couple, anything. Just as long as it conveys the theme of promise. You may use textures, brushes, gradients, and even animate your icon to demonstrate the theme.

1. All icons must be 100x100, 40K or less.
2. All icons must be either gif, .jpeg, or png
3. Do not use livejournal as your source of imagehost.
4. Must be related to Japan.
5. Do not show your icon to anybody else or any icontest community.
6. Only two icons per username.
7. Icons are due by Sunday, May 14, 2006 at 3 PM EST
8. Please submit in a format like so

[img]
[img src]
[artist/character/series/group/thing]
[original image link]--> this means, where did you find your image pic? This is so I could make you a pretty banner.
Please provide a link.

~Ames
