    [​IMG]

    Pick a hero from an older Hero Contest and create their ability icons (sub-abilities not included)




    [​IMG]

    • Active and disabled versions of all icons are required.
    • No plain screenshots (or shallowly modified) icons are permitted.
    • The icons must be made specifically for the contest. Previous work is not allowed.
    • Blizzard icon naming conventions must be followed: BTNAttack*.blp etc.
    • Works in progress (WIPs) of the icons are encouraged as they keep the contest active.
    • The icons must be physically attached to a post when complete. (.blp files only)
    • An in-game screenshot must be included with all submissions.
    • A link to the hero submission post is mandatory.
    • List of Hero Contests (warning, some entries no longer work, because they were uploaded on Pastebin - these entries cannot be picked):
    • Judges may not participate in the contest.
    • You will need to be able to provide the judge with the *.psd/*.xcf files (if you have worked with either Photoshop or GIMP) if they find it necessary.

    [​IMG]

    • First Place: 45 reputation points and your entry on the award icon
    • Second Place: 30 reputation points and an award icon
    • Third Place: 15 reputation points and an award icon


    [​IMG]

    Creativity How original and unique is the icon? This can be estimated with the conceptual approach, the colors' combination, the technique, etc. /20
    Theme Was the concept tied to the represented ability or was it too generic? /20
    Blizzard Feeling Icons should be executed in such a manner that they can be implemented in a Warcraft map, compliment other Blizzard icons and replace the existing ones. How well was the previous statement executed? /20
    Technique Did the technique offer a unique appearance and what quality did it result in? /40

    • 75 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 25 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.

    [​IMG]

    The contest shall begin on 17th of January and conclude on 17th of February, 11:59 PM [UTC].

    Cool, a new contest.

    I like the idea of using the spells/heroes of an older contest.
    Does this include the #6 too or what does "older Hero Contest" include?
    What about the judges, who are they (if you found any yet)?
    Does this exclude judges of Hero Contests too?

    Hoping for a lot of interest from the community :)

    Nope, since the Hero Contest #6 has not officially ended. Only judged submissions can be picked as a theme.

    Judges can be found, I've already got a few in mind ;)

    Judges and contestants from older Hero Contests are not limited to join this contest at all.

    If I do find the time for it I will be making icons for either this hero or this one.

    You should allow contestants to make icons for Hero #6 So that way the Nightwalker can get some custom love for the good of all mankind. :p

    More importantly, I would suggest allowing users to make icons for heroes from the Hero Contests over at Wc3C.net; they had an excellent selection, some of the best heroes I've ever seen.

    Pretty awesome theme! :D

    I'd join but, too bad wc3 is no longer installed on this piece of crap called PC =)

    Or maybe I'll give it a shot, for the sake of good old times.

    Yes this is my PC
