Hush Icontest for Avatar: The Last Airbender

Last Week's Winner


By: helium_icons
Week 23: Image Provided

General Information

Yeah, sure, text can make or break your icon... but sometimes, aren't you tired of all the emphasis on text? Good cropping is just as important, as is the application of textures. (I mean, come on, some of those icons are just absolutely mutilated by all those horrid light bubbles gone wrong!) In any case, welcome to Avatar Hush, where the emphasis is all on your cropping, coloring (or lack of coloring, for that matter), and application of textures.

PLEASE READ THE RULES!

Schedule

Every week, there will be a new challenge posted. Each challenge consists of three themes: General, Image Provided, and Lyrical. Then, on Friday at 7:00PM PST, a voting post will be made. You have until Sunday at 5:00PM PST to vote. After that, votes will be tallied, and a winners post, hopefully with banners, will be posted around 7:00PM PST.

WEEK 26 || optimism ; promo poster ; "sweet potato" [10/01/07]

xenoamorist
NOTE ON SUBMISSIONS: Because the new season has started, I'm going to request that you do not use SPOILER caps from an episode until two weeks after it has aired. This means that you can use a cap that doesn't give anything away from the episode. I'll let you know if your icon has potential spoilers.

Your icon must convey optimism in some sense, whether it's through happiness, hope, etc. :D

This week, your icon must feature squares. Just having a square icon isn't enough, though :') You can duplicate your base and put it inside the main frame as a square, or use a texture with squares, or have squares in the original pic, or show nerds, whatever! Be creative! :D
