    Welcome to Fantasy Forum's Avatar Contest.

    Everyone is welcome to join in whether you are good at graphics or not, it's all for fun.



    These are the rules:

    1. You are allowed to make up to 2 avatars per theme.

    2. The contest will be voted on every fortnight (that means you have two weeks to make your entry(ies)

    3. Contestants must PM ME with their entry(ies) DO NOT POST IT ON THE FORUM. I will be putting up entries all together in one post every
    fortnight for people to vote on. No one will know who has made the avatars until the winner is announced. Voting will take place on the board.

    4. Avatars must be 150 x150

    5. For every contest there will be a theme which I will post.

    6. The 1st/2nd/3rd place winners of every contest will receive a banner which I will make.

    7. If anyone isn't happy with an entry or wants to resubmit a new version of it or a completely different one in any competition, that's fine as long as
    I receive it before the deadline of the contest.

    8. Please vote! I don't want to make voting mandatory if you want to win, but since people aren't permitted to vote for themselves, those who submit but
    DON'T vote have an unfair advantage over those who submit and DO. Be aware that in the case of a tie, if one person has voted and the other has not,
    I will break the tie in favour of the person who voted.

    Count me in ~ I like the anonymous/prize/2xavs elements too. Perhaps the wiinner could use the prize banner (a) to show off & (b) promote the competition so more people join in too.

    Yeah, I prefer that to. Anonymity is a much better thing. I also love the idea of a prize too, it makes it more worthwhile I think.

    Thanks everyone for showing some interest. I think we'll get started and see how it goes.

    The competition is open to everyone in the forum, if you want to join in, just read the first post to understand more.

    Challenge #1: Lyrical

    Rules:
    1. For this challenge you can use any images you like to convey the lyrics, it's totally your choice.
    You must use at least three consecutive words from the lyrics in your avatars.
    2. Avatars must be 150x150
    3. You can make one or two avatars
    4. PM ME WITH YOUR ENTRY(IES) I will be posting them. The idea is that no one knows who made which avatar.
    5. Entries are to be pm'd to me by Tuesday 8th May.

    Good luck and have fun :)
    If you have any questions, just post here and I'll answer.


    Lyrics: Within Temptation - What Have You Done.

    Would you mind if I hurt you?
    Understand that I need to
    Wish that I had other choices
    Than to harm the one I love

    What have you done now?

    I know I'd better stop trying
    You know that there's no denying
    I won't show mercy on you now
    I know I should stop believing
    I know that there's no retrieving
    It's over now
    What have you done?

    What have you done now?

    I, I've been waiting for someone like you
    But now you are slipping away
    What have you done now?
    Why, Why does fate make us suffer
    There's a curse between us
    Between me and you

    What have you done? (x4)
    What have you done now?
    What have you done ? (x4)
    What have you done now?

    Would you mind if I killed you?
    Would you mind if I tried to
    Cause you have turned into my worst enemy?
    You carry hate that I feel
    It's over now
    What have you done

    What have you done now

    I, I've been waiting for someone like you
    But now you are slipping away
    What have you done now?
    Why, Why does fate make us suffer
    There's a curse between us
    Between me and you

    What have you done? (x4)
    What have you done now?
    What have you done? (x4)
    What have you done now?

    I will not fall
    Won't let it go
    We will be free
    When it ends

    I, I've been waiting for someone like you
    But now you are slipping away
    What have you done now?
    Why, Why does fate make us suffer
    There's a curse between us
    Between me and you

    For now we'll stick to up to two entries per person.

    We need to promote the contest more, I have an idea :D
