- It's ironic, but since I wasn't online too much in the past week or so, because of all the recent Strokes news I didn't have time to concentrate making a post for the new challenge for the time I was on the computer. LOL! NEWS OVERLOAD, after almost 2 years of nothing. Which is a reason more to enter our challenges and KEEP THE FANDOM ALIVE AND HAPPY. We've got only 2 headers so far, but I hope to see a lot more than that in weeks to come.

(( ENTER OUR FIRST HEADER CHALLENGE!!! ))

- Now onto the new regular challenge: It'll be a theme challenge, for a nice round number 40. :P The theme is: The Strokes & Friends. You can make icons of any pictures of the Strokes with other people. (Except with fans, girlfriends/wives 'cause we had that theme for Valentine's Day, and Ryan and Matt 'cause I consider them with the band.) I'm uploading few random pictures just in case, but you can use ANY picture on that theme. Feel free to ask questions if something is not clear.

- When it comes to other bands The Strokes have been probably the most photographed with The White Stripes, but you'll have to settle with just this one pic of Jack and Julian from me, because while I was looking for pics to post, I realized my Strokes/White Stripes folder is mysteriously GONE from my hard drive. WTF?! D: I found only this one pic that was randomly put in some other folder. I NEED HUGS TILL I GET THEM ALL BACK.

RULES:
- Make sure all the icons fit LJ standards. (100x100, etc.)
- Brushes, textures, etc. are allowed. (Animation isn't!)
- You can submit as many icons as you want.
- You can blend images, reuse them, whatever you like.
- Only new icons, especially made for the challenge please!
- Submit your entries as a comment to this post. They're screened.
- Above all, have fun people! :D

- Here we go with our first ever header challenge. I'll be posting the next regular challenge in few days. The header challenge will last through the course of two separate challenges, so you'll have plenty of time to enter. You can use any pictures you like, do whatever you want with them... Your imagination and graphic skills are the limit. Knowing your creativity and skills, the sky will NOT be the limit. ;) There are only two conditions, though:

- Headers have to be in between 600x300px & 800x400px. No more or less than that.
- All headers MUST feature the words strokes_stills, The Strokes Stillness, or anything along those lines. You get the idea. If you wish to include more text, quotes, lyrics, etc. feel free! But the title/description of the community is obligatory!
- If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

- Brushes, textures, etc. are allowed. (Animation isn't!)
- You can submit as many headers as you want.

- What's going on with the current challenge? :( We were doing so well for the past few challenges, I was hoping we'd be over with this one in decent time as well. I was looking forward to Challenge #40. I planned Header Challenge soon, too. But now everything's on hold. We do have 2 more entries since the last reminder, but by one of the two members (besides myself) who already entered before, so we're still only on 3 participants and that's not enough for proper voting.

(( KEEP ENTERING PLEASE!!! ))

- Well, well, well... This is the second time in a row that I'm pretty satisfied with how the banners turned out, so I guess I'm making a considerable progress in the self-criticism area. Please comment when you pick yours up, and I really do hope you enjoy them. ;)

BANNERS - COMMENT & ENJOY!Collapse )

- I am so ridiculously late with the new challenge. I AM SORRY, YOU GUYS! Just before I was about to post our previous challenge, feeneante had a very good idea, but I told her I might wait for it 'cause I promised you guys that Live 2002 challenge first. Since then both me and her completely forgot what her idea was about. Crazy, I know. I was trying to remember it these days, but nothing rings the bell. So we'll have a regular picture challenge now, and by the time of our Challenge #40 I'm sure we'll either remember that or come up with some other interesting theme. This time, I chose some High Quality live pictures from 2001. It's frustrating that I couldn't find a single HQ pic of Nikolai from this period. He's so awfully neglected, even more than the drummer, dude. So instead of him, here have 2 pics of Albert 'cause his birthday was few days ago. And oh yeah, I'm in the process of making Challenge #38 banners, so those will be posted very soon, too. :)

RULES:
- Make sure all the icons fit LJ standards. (100x100, etc.)
- You can use only pictures provided.
- Brushes, textures, etc. are allowed. (Animation isn't!)
- You can submit as many icons as you want.
- You can blend images, reuse them, whatever you like.
- Only new icons, especially made for the challenge please!
- Submit your entries as a comment to this post. They're screened.
- Above all, have fun people! :D
