fforward_lims is in desperate need of  votes, because only two people have voted so far, and I simply can't post results that are based on only two votes.
So, please vote HERE if you haven't yet. ;)

Thanks to all the participants for getting their icons in on time!
This won't be easy to decide, because every icon looks quite good imo.

rules.
+ Everybody is allowed to vote, you don't have to be a member of this community.
+ You vote for ONE lesser quality icon SET.
+ You have to vote based on the quality of the icons and not on your personal preference like: The font looks weird. I don't like the style. The icon looks boring...
+ Comment with reasons that might help icon makers to improve their skills like:
- It's a bad crop. Why? Are the person's eyes cut off? Is it too far away? Does it make the subject blurry? Is it too close to be able to tell what it is? What is it, specifically, that makes the crop bad?

- It's too plain. Why? Sometimes, less is more. Giving a vote of "it's too plain" will not be accepted... you need to explain why plain/simple is bad. Is the crop boring? Is the coloring dull? What is it, specifically, that the maker could have done to make it less plain?

- It's oversharpened or blurry. Why? Where? Everyone's monitors are different, so to some people the icon might not look blurry or oversharpened. Is the person's face blurry? Are the edges too sharp? What is it, specifically, about the icon that is too sharp or too blurry?

With this chal we're two challenges away from the finale (the finale will have 3 finalists, btw), and that's why skips won't count any longer.
Another change to the rules is that you'll have to make TWO icons this time.

+ Icons are due Monday, January 11th. If you don't submit your icon in time, you'll be disqualified.
+ All entries must be original and private.
+ TWO icons per person.
+ You're allowed to use only two of the provided caps.
+ Icons must be 100x100 and no more than 40kb.
+ Brushes, textures, stock images etc. are allowed.
+ You are only allowed to participate if your name is listed HERE.
+ Submit your icons as an image and URL as a comment to this post. Comments are screened.
+ If there are still any questions, ask them in a separate post.
