EDITED X-MEN
edited_xmen is an icontest community.


COMICBOOK CHARACTERS ICONED INTO REAL-LIFE PEOPLE.

This icontest requires skills in manipulation.

The idea behind these contests is that the mod(s) choose a celebrity from a list of suggestions or one of their choice and pair them with an X-Men charater. The icons are to be created so that the celebrity is altered to look like the specified character in whatever graphics program is available to the maker.

RULES (altered and borrow from x_men_stills)

1) You may use brushes, text, to create your icon. No animation allowed in the REGULAR CHALLENGES, however if there is a bonus/theme challenge you may use animation.

2) Do not reveal your icon to anyone until after the winners are posted.

3) You may NOT vote for yourself, NOR get your friends to vote for you, NOR manipulate the results of the polls for your benefit.

4) Please be sure your entry fits LJ's standards. GIF, JPG, and PNG format. 40kb and 100x100 MAX.

5) Host your entry on an image hosting site such as Photobucket and provide a direct link to your icon. (ex:

6) You may use an artist's entry icon ONLY with their permission and after the challenge.

7) You must credit the artist in keywords if using their icons.

New challenges will be posted on Mondays, and entries must be in by midnight (12:00 am, Central) on Fridays. Voting will last until Tuesday at noon (12:00 pm, Central) and votes will be tallied. The winners will be announced later in the day. Banners will follow shortly thereafter. The winners are as follows: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and occasionally a special category, such as 'best coloring', 'best cropping' or 'mod's choice'. The THEME challenge will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd places only, unless otherwise decided.

Entries will be in screened comments as replies to the original challenge. So, if I post up Challenge #4, you would reply to it with your icons when you are finished with them. No one will be able to see your icons except moderators unless you state otherwise.
