Yet Another Avatar Revolution

Sat Jul 12, 2014, 2:00 PM


The Avatar Revolution Contest is now closed, and a few deviants will be helping me select the winners. Feel free to change your icon back to its original or to keep your flat color icon if you so prefer. :D

Thanks to all who participated, and I hope you all had fun taking part in this very glorious revolution. :giggle: Until next time, comrades. :salute:

------

This time inspired by the absolutely amazing, moving, and brilliant icon displayed below:

:iconphoenixdestruction:

"A flat colour as an icon is the way to go!" - PhoenixDestruction


If you'd like to join in the Avatar Revolution, just pick your favorite color and set it as your icon. If we gain enough participants, perhaps we'll be able to put together a nice pixel artwork with each icon representing a pixel of color. :lol:

Check out the new contest as well as the pixel creations made from this revolution:

I see that  :icon3rdeye88::iconmenelausii::iconbytestream: we have great taste in colors. :D They're almost identical.

And yay I can go back to my icon, and yours is back to. :meow::heart:

*edit* I just looked at the pixel art and I got ripped off. I was the first one to use the shade of green that's so close to everyone elses and my icon didn't get used. I purposefully made sure not to use the same color as anyone else and these assholes had to steal my color. What a bunch of horse shit. :( :steaming: That's what I get for trying to be nice and not take a color too similar to anyone elses, ripped off.

I feel this is kind of stupid. For me this takes away the possibility to recognice users by their avatars. Flat colors are not something you can recognice a person by, you can't say; "Oh, thats him" by just looking at a flat color, like you can with user that have unique designs as avatars.

This is just my mere opinion, if you feel or think something else, I accept, even though I might not agree.

I understand. I keep getting confused by everyone's icons as well. :lol:

Yesterday was the last day that I was officially running with the project, though. I figured there should be an end date for this so that people will start changing their icons back to normal. :P

I see your point.

Well I don't think this is about taking away someone's originality, it's more about connecting users for a cause. I met lots of awesome people through this which I probably had never talked to otherwise. Additionally, this is just for the fun of doing something together and you don't have to join if you feel you're not going to be recognized anymore ^_^

Unique, preferably own art pieces as avatars are of course better and more recognizable than a flat color.

Don't know if you remember, but when :iconmiontre: (now deactivated) had his icon revolution where everyone had the same sort of flashing icon but with a different letter in the center, things got confusing extraordinarily fast. I kept thinking I saw him everywhere. :lol: And that time, instead of making pixel creations, we played scrabble. :P
