Beck should have the voting for Challenge 1 any time. Meanwhile, here's our next challenge. :)


The general rules:
* Entries are due by 11pm EST on Sunday, June 14th.
* Do not post your icons anywhere else until the challenge has ended.
* Icons must be newly made for this challenge.
* Complete community rules can be found here.


Regular Challenge: First Meetings

For my first contribution to the new cycle of challenges, I thought I'd continue the theme of beginnings--with some images from first encounters between the characters in the films. Use them in whatever context you please.

* You may use only the images provided.
* Blending, use of textures, etc. is permitted. Animation is not.
* You may submit up to four icons for this challenge.






Theme Challenge: Lyrical

We go from firsts to last: the song is "If Today Was Your Last Day", by Nickelback. There's a lot of imagery to play with in these lyrics, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

* Icons must feature at least two consecutive words from the lyrics in readable text.
* Additional tiny text is welcome as well.
* You may use any images from any of the X-Men films.
* Blending, use of textures, etc. is permitted. Animation is not.
* You may submit up to four icons for this challenge.
* The lyrics are provided below, so you won't have to hunt them down. :)


"If Today Was Your Last Day" - Nickelback

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had, if today was your last day?
What if, what if, if today was your last day?

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the price is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you're never living twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?

And would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you're dreaming of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you'd finally fall in love if today was your last day?

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are

So do whatever it takes
'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
Let nothing stand in your way
'Cause the hands of time are never on your side

I think it would be best to replace one of them, yes. Using the same base at different communities or on different dates would probably be fine, but I think it's best not to have them in the same challenge post. Thank you. :)

Yes, unfortunately, comments can't be edited once they've been replied to, and I had to do that to answer your question. Thanks for making the switch, though! :)
