it ocurred to me that it would be fun to do. At the same time, I already got bored and won't update anything so moderation is up to what's currently there.Lol, why you're turning your body into the icons? XD
Well, that'd be a sad case because staff aren't idiots. For me it is obvious how image was made and rules are here to be followed.
What would happen if one would lie about icon being his? Well, no penalty from my side, I never given a single warning point. They would simply become a new material for staff discussion after which practical action based on the conclusion emerges.
I suggest you to read this, it will give an answer to your wondering. If you find something stated to lack ''logical sense'', you are free to start a thread in proper forum.
So, what's the purpose of icon, section, again? To be a 2D gallery where something being freehand is more important than something looking good? I based this icon on 2D data that I had produced myself - since I took the photo using my camera, of my own eye. I didn't CnP someone else's stuff.
- I personally took an image (of myself)
- Brushed over certain parts to create different highlights/shadows in areas and add a different color
- Used a filter to make it look better in wc3/low res
Those same rules once had a paragraph stating that, if an icon is found to be useful, it can still be approved But someone carefully edited that out. Or it was applied to skins, only.
