Thanks so much to everyone who answered my voting call! It was fantastic!

EDIT: Turns out somehow I misread a vote. Sorry, all! That means now the results have changed. No one could separate your icons after all.

I currently have absolutely no votes for Challenge 12. Please head over there and vote! The quality of the icons is A+, so I know it's difficult!

Awesome quality, everyone. It'll be difficult to choose!

When voting on the Part 2 redo icons, please remember you are focusing on improvement. Is the new icon an improvement over the original? Part 1 is voting as usual. Please use the example voting format.

The Lowdown:
. You must vote for one icon in Part 1: your one (1) favourite (the entry you consider to be the best). Likewise, you must vote for four icons in Part 2: two (2) least favourite and two (2) favourite. You must provide a reason for all votes.
. Please remember that you are judging on technique, not personal preference. Reasons such as "I dislike this character and I can't believe you used my least favourite colour for your background" are not acceptable.
. To assist you, please head over to obaona's guide to giving good crit.

THE FINAL CHALLENGE!

Congratulations to our three remaining participants! Please note the changes in what is required of you in this challenge and that it will be open for the following two weeks. Best of luck!

Welcome to Round 3, Challenge 12 :).

The Lowdown:
. You must use the caps supplied.
. You may submit only three icons for this challenge.
. If you decide to change your entry, simply delete your existing reply and post your new submission.
. Please don't post or use your icon anywhere until the challenge is over. Doing so will result in your disqualification.
. Use of textures, brushes, blending, and animation is permitted. Stock text is banned.
. Check the user info for a how-to on submitting.
. Please notify me if you would like to use your skip. If, by the time the challenge has closed and you have not submitted your entry, I will use your skip to take you into the next challenge.

Challenge 12 has two parts.
1. Make one icon from the Period Dress caps here (caps taken from TrekCore). If you have any problems with my Photobucket, please notify me.
2. Participants must choose two icons they made in earlier weeks. Participants must improve upon these entries. They can follow the same technique or they can do something completely different with the cap. The goal of this challenge is to see improvement. Participants will submit two new icons along with their old entries for comparison at voting time. To see how that voting is conducted, check out R1's final challenge.

Entries are due on Friday, 6th May, 11PM EST. Any questions? Feel free to ask :).

Did you create a few icons for the challenge and then choose the best one to submit? If so, this is where you can post those "rejected" icons (along with your submitted entry) and make them available to others :). In addition, you can leave your comments about what you thought of this week's caps, as well as more freeform dicussion of iconmaking.

I will have to extend the voting until Thursday @ 11PM EST as we only have four votes and it's unfair to calculate results with such few voters. Please head over to Challenge 11 to vote!

Only 3 votes so far! I may have to extend the voting if we don't get enough votes. Please don't vote to cast your vote for Challenge 11. Voting ends today @ 11PM EST. See you then for the results!

This week's voting video is VOY and DS9 bloopers :D.
