Themes 1-10: Mixture of Abstract and Concrete
1. Dreams: interpret however you wish…
2. Stock Image: use a stock image in the icon
3. Broken Record: icon must feature at least 2 consecutive words from Radiohead’s Videotape
4. Raw: present a “naked” image, meaning no color changes, no brightness/contrast edits, no texture, no text, nothing… all that is allowed is cropping. Let the image you choose speak for itself.
5. Time: interpret however you wish…
6. One Color: the icon must feature only ONE dominant color
7. Grunge Texture: use a grunge texture in the icon. Try searching dA for textures!
8. Humor: make the icon funny in some way
9. Blur: some part of the icon must be noticeably blurry
10. Nightmares: interpret however you wish…

Themes 11-15: Special Category, Overkill
For these five icons, you must use one image to create five different icons. Each icon needs to be noticeably different. For example:

These two icons are NOT different. They are the same, except the second has a slight alteration.

But these two ARE different! :] Major changes should be made to the icons to separate them.

Image is the cover of the comic, Silent Hill: Dead or Alive.

I’m sure you guys won’t have a problem with this, but I wanted to provide examples just to be clear.

And finally, the last five icons, 16-20 are Artist’s Choice, so they are entirely up to you!

If you have any questions, please post them below!

Lemme get this straight bb. For the Overkill portion, you can use different crops so long as you use the same picture???

Correct. :] Different crops, colors, textures, text, etc. is all allowed. The goal is to make all icons look very different, even though they're all produced from the same picture.

You can also focus on different portions of the image. For example, if you used this image, it'd be fine to icon the girl's face like I did in the example as well as the nurses in the back. It's all in the same image, so it's all fair game. :]

So you could have one icon focus on the girl, one on the nurses, another on the title... and so on. You can virtually do anything, just so long as all five icons come from the same image and they are all obviously different. :]
