Current Challenge: Challenge 11 - Theme: Senses

thewlis_stills is a icontest community dedicated to David Thewlis icons. This is a stillness (non-animated icons only) community, based off of the other stillness communities on LJ that was started by quebelly.
This community was stared on April 21, 2005 by dark_illusen. Each chalenge will have special rules or guidelines, but there are also general rules to keep in mind. Please read them below, carefully, or your icon may be disqualified.
For each challenge, there will be 4 winners (depending on the number of entries). A first, second, and third place as well as a mod's chioce will be awarded after the votes are counted. Winners will recieve a banner.

Since all icons are submitted in a comment to the icon challenge post, posting access is not needed. I am the only one who needs to have posting access, so please do not ask.

Each week I will post a picture, base, or theme. You can submit one icon, unless otherwise stated.

Challenges will be posted every Friday
Submittion deadlines will be the following Friday at 8pm EST
Voting will begin shortly after
Voting deadlines will be every Sunday at 8pm EST
Winners will be announced on Sunday or Monday

Having trouble finding stuff you need? Here are some resources for you. I'll add more as I come across them.
cap_it - Screencaps

1) All icon submissions should be anonymous. In other words, don't have your LJ username on the icon.

2) Icons should be non-animated. This is a STILLNESS community.

3) Icons must meet the LJ icon requirements, this means keep it to 100x100 and 40kB or less.

4) When submitting your icon to the challenge post both the icon and just the URL itself. (see submitting if you need help)

5) Do not post your icon anywhere until the voting is over and winners have been announced. Submissions should be anonymous. (see rule #1)

6) Do not use an icon you have made in the past and do not submit the icon to any other challenges. The icon should be made specifically for this challenge.

7) Follow the rules that are also with each individual challenge.

8) Do not use someone elses base to make your icon. Make the whole icon yourself!

9) Do not take the icons featured in the challenges. If the icon maker wants you to take the icons, he/she will post them somewhere else and tell people specifially that they are up for grabs.

10) Have fun and be creative!
