Graphix N Words

Icontests

Grphxnwords is an text icon challenge community. The main focus of each challenge is a theme with some words on the icon. The text doesn't have to be legible, just there. It's kind of the opposite of a HUSH icon community. Thank you and be sure to check out the links below or the userinfo :)

Icons

You may post icons here as long as you read the rules. I will be able to tell if you haven't.

I thought you guys might want to know about a graphics program, based on The GIMP, that is free and emulates the look of Photoshop.

It's called GIMPshop, and can be found over at www.GIMPshop.com. It's a free download, and does most everything that Photoshop and the other big guys does, but just costs infinitely less (as in: nothing!).

I've been using it for a while now to make icons and other small pictures, and thus far it's worked out well for me. Lemme know how you all like it.

theme 27: obsession
Interpet this theme anyway you'd like.


1. You must be a member to enter.
2. The icons cannot be textless.
3. Most challenges will have it's own set of guidelines. Just remember TEXT.
4. Remember Livejournal icon standard.
100x100, 40k, JPG, GIF, or PNG.
5. You may enter icons smaller than 100x100.
6. Please, make a new, refreshing icon for each challenge.
7. Do not use someone elses bases either. That's cheating or not doing all the work.
8. Putting your name in the file of the icon is CHEATING. Don't do it.
9. You may only post your icon entered in the challenge after winners of that challenge is announced.
10. Please remember to put your icon(s) URL under your icon.It won't be submitted if you forget.
12. Advertising on your site to vote for icons at the site is okay, but don't tell them which are your icons. You will be banned for this.
