basictraining is an icon challenge community whose aim is to inspire icon makers to investigate seperately the two stages of icon construction: namely, making a base and then transforming that base into a finished icon. Each week, we will be inviting challengers to submit entries in two categories: an icon base made from photos, scans or screencaps that we will provide, and a finished icon built from one of last week's submitted bases.
Which steps should be used in each stage of iconmaking? Glad you asked.
If you have any questions at all, please contact either of the mods (nellenoir & patchedrobes) and they'll get back to you as soon as they possibly can.
Awards will be presented as follows:
The first three awards will be based on voting, and the last three are presented at the mods' discretion.
