This is an OTP challenge of sorts, using the images below. To be fair to everyone this time around, we have two Erik/Christine and two Raoul/Christine images below, courtesy of ThePhantom.org:
[X] You may submit four icons at most.
[X] Do not blend the images together. You may, however, blend an image with itself.
[X] You may use any kind of effect(s) you wish, including text, brushes, etc. However, no animation.
[X] Do not post your icon anywhere until the winners are announced.
[X] There will be five awards given out for this challenge if we have at least eight entries. First, Second, and Third Places, of course. But there will also be a Mod's Choice and a special award: BEST USE OF COLOR.
[X] Submit your icons in the following format:
banner = yes/no
[X] The deadline for this challenge will be FRIDAY JULY 21ST @ MIDNIGHT.
[X] Questions? Comments? Place them outside of your challenge entry and I'll get back to you ASAP.
