Icon contest for Legend of the Seeker fans
LotS Icontest
Welcome to lots_icontest, an icon contest dedicated to the syndicated show Legend of the Seeker. Every two weeks a new challenge will be issued. When each challenge ends, a public vote will be posted with three top slots, and a special category. At the end of each month, the first place winners will go head to head in contention for Icon of the Month. The winning icon becomes the community's default icon for the entirety of the next month.
1. If you are not a Legend of the Seeker fan, this is not the place for you.
2. You can only use images provided, unless told otherwise.
3. Icons must fit LJ standards (100x100 and 40kbs or less).
4. Icons must be made specifically for the challenge. Don't post them anywhere else until voting is over.
5. All effects, such as lights, stock, text, textures, even animation are totally allowed.
6. You cannot enter more than four icons per challenge.
7. Don't follow tutorials too closely and don't copy anyone else's work. Try to stay original. Also, the icons must be made entirely from scratch! All bases and manips must be made by you.
8. Be sure to read the rules for each challenge as they might change from time to time.
9. Don't enter variations of the same icon. Meaning, two icons that are exactly the same except one has text and the other one doesn't.
10. Most importantly, have fun! And don't be afraid to take risks. Try new and unique things with your icons.

**Do not use anyone's icons without permission.

To enter, simply post the icons using HTML and then the links under them. Like so:
