WINNING ENTRY


This entry feels like the best representation for the group. The spinning animation is subtle and not too flashy, which suits the dark and serious atmosphere of the campus. The name is prominent and easy to read. Equally as important, as one of our staff members said, it's visually pleasing while not too distracting when inside a deviation artist comment's box.

RUNNER UPS


It was a close tie between this entry and the winning one, as this one was very well put together. The reflection brought to mind a pool of blood, and the design behind the text is very expertly crafted and mystifying. The only things I didn't feel worked with this icon was how bright it seemed and the animation. 


This animation had a very unique and respectable concept, especially with the insinuation of walking through hexed doors into the castle's main lounge, a good use of the group's lore. The only issue is the icon seemed a bit too ambitious for the mandatory file requirement, leaving it with highly pixelated images, which detracted from the aesthetic.

COMPLIMENTS FOR THE OTHER ENTRIES


To take a moment to say what we liked about the other entries...


The second frame was very well drawn and creative. It was a great interpretation of the coat of arms.


The last glowing portion of the icon's animation cycle is definitely still one of our favorite animations!


This icon very creatively displayed the departments and the dorms.


We loved the concept behind this icon, but unfortunately the name was spelled wrong.


The blurring of the title at the very end of the sequence was a neat looking animation.


The glowing blood designs on this were really nice.


The animation on this was superb, though the pixel style ultimately wasn't the best match for our group.


The design in the box is really pretty and has a lot of detail.


This twisty entry was fun to look at!


This icon's animation sequence displayed locations in the campus nicely.

#

Sooooo... with all the makeovers happening over at :iconotherworlde:, it seems prudent that the icon should get a makeover also! Come June we'll have used that icon for two years, and some change is always a breath of fresh air.

Thus, this contest was born!



OtherWorlde is looking for a new icon!

I totes understand you Q_Q But I've spent too much time looking for ideas, concepts and making them and it'd be shame if I don't show my effort.
Tbh I've been aiming for that 50$ but now I just hope to win 10$ for the effort ;A;
