Round 8: Themes





ICON POWERS ACTIVATE!
An epic multi-fandom battle of good versus evil. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to compile teams of hero/es and villain/s (to create a set of 12 icons total). You may choose to have one villain and six heroes, one hero and six villains, or any number in between as long as your icons are split evenly between heroes and villains (6 a side).

You may choose any characters you like from any show, movie, comic, etc that you'd like for each side. Characters must then be showcased in an icon that complies with one of our themes. Each icon will be judged separately, but at the end, there will be a grand showdown where full sets of heroes will face down full sets of villains. Will good triumph or will evil?

Technical

01. Secret Identity
Super heroes and villains all need a second face to hide behind. For this theme you must use cropping or textures to hide your subject.
Examples

24_amends | elli | wekillpandas | boxed

02. Catch Phrase
Text; create a catch phrase (or borrow one from a Superhero or Super Villain) for your own using.
Examples

_puchula_ | equanimousicons | cookiestome | longerthanwedo

03. Darkness be my friend
When the sun goes away, the villains come out to play. Dark colours, shadows, &/or grunge textures should be used on this icon.
Examples

hugmybrain | hopeitallaway | ovideo | memonechan

04. The Battle For...
Every rivalry has a showdown, where heroes and villains meet on the battlefield. This icon must use multiple images, combining both hero and villain in an icon.
Examples

prettybutt | paintable | sky_magenta | tinebrella

05. Symbolic Colors (chosen by last round's MVP john_scorpy).
All icons must feature a coloring focus on two or three distinctive colors.
Examples

dudette_in_town | dancelies | mm3butterfly | lookslikerain

06. Come to our side; we have cookies (chosen by last round's MVP john_scorpy).
All icons must be either strong and bright or dark and moody in a way that reflects the character's moral leanings.
Examples

sallyna_smile | saxify | spg_spn_girls | v_allery

Interpretative
01. The Original
The leader of the pack - the hero that starts them all. Which character created the group that screams "Icon Powers Activate!" when a villain looms in the distance?

02. The Evil Overlord
For every original there is an Evil Overlord, bringing villains together to fight the righteous. Which character draws devils out from darkness?

03. Redemption

04. Justice

05. Origins (chosen by last round's MVP john_scorpy).
All heroes and villains have their beginnings. This theme asks for insight; showing in an icon an interpretation of why a character is a villain or a hero, what motivated them to become who they are.

06. Turncoat/Moral Ambiguity (chosen by last round's MVP john_scorpy).
Not all heroes are all good, and not all villains are all evil. This theme asks you to show us the other side. Or turn your character to the other side, if you wish.
