As promised, I'm here to bug you to vote in the [livejournal.com profile] animanga_lims Comeback Challenge, in which I've submitted what will probably be my last icon for Round 1.

[I'm quite happy with the results of my experimentation this time, and I learned a whole lot, but it's hard to hope it would be People's Choice and even harder to hope it would be Mods' Choice, so I doubt I'm getting back in. And, in the miniscule chance that I did, I'd almost definitely be voted out the next challenge given the extremely high calibre of icon-makers remaining at this point.]

On the bright side, you only have to vote for 2 icons you like, rather than the usual rooting around for 5 bad ones and giving concrit. The theme is Chobits, so my past comments about CLAMP bringing out the best in icon-makers apply. Go vote!

And while you're at it, take a look at the regular challenge, also Chobits. Isn't it neat to see the difference in quality? ._.

ETA: So there was some crazy last-minute forgotten-entry no-more-mods-choice first-40-votes thing that happened before I could react, and I'm out for good. I could say more about the thing, but eh, whatever.

Here's my entry, which got zero votes. I think it just didn't stand out -- and apparently no one liked the 3 icons that used the screenshot. *shrug*

And, irony of ironies, the theme this week is Angel Sanctuary manga. D: I found this out just now, digging up the link for my comeback challenge entry, and I'd been working on my Zaphkiel challenge all evening because I thought I had to update it every 3 months not 6. On the bright side, I feel like the icons I've made since participating in [livejournal.com profile] animanga_lims are way better than what came before, so some good came of it after all.

See, I told you I'd get voted off this round. Maybe it's for the best, because I would not want to deal with the Death Note screenshots that are this week's theme.

Here are the icons I made for the competition:

1 2 3
Haruka, from Sailor Moon Kyouya, from Ouran High School Host Club Watanuki, from xxxHOLiC

[There will be a flocked post soon-ish, in which I discuss the comments I received, the competition in general, etc.]

[It's like summary judgment . . . only less, uh, judgmental.]

Since people on my flist have been posting icons lately, I thought I should jump on the boat, too, so I uploaded a batch of them. 8 for my Zaphkiel [livejournal.com profile] iconfiend100 claim here, and these 4 other Angel Sanctuary icons:

I was much too amused by the idea of using only images in which the subject was wearing glasses. (The one on the right was made much earlier.) I gave up after I realized that Setsuna also wears glasses while he's in disguise -- I wanted to upload these now now now, and I was out of inspiration for Setchan. :P

In other news, which I picked up through [livejournal.com profile] iconfiend100, apparently the U.S. is involved in negotiating a WIPO treaty that would give broadcasters copyright-like rights to things they transmit, even if they have no original right in it. The U.S. is pushing to extend this concept to the internet, which seems to be creating somewhat of a flurry. I can't help but be amused that (arguably) copyright-infringing fanfic-writers are so worried about losing their (arguably) nonexistent rights.

I haven't done more looking into this than poking around and skimming stuff on the EFF page, but it sounds like the extension to internet still only involves webcasting and not text-based publication. I wonder if Stanford's CIS has anything on this, though, and whether I could get involved. Now that I've joined the ELJ and am fairly likely to join STLR, the next step is to figure out what public interest stuff I might do, and whether I actually have time for any.
