CHALLENGE PROMPT:
This week you have four images to choose from and you must make TWO ICONS. The images are screencaps from Donnie Brasco (courtesy JohnnyDeppWeb.com). With only three people left skips are no longer allowed, if you do not enter you will be eliminated. I will be slightly lenient about the deadline, though you'll have to let me know if you cannot get your icons in on time; and I will not extend any further than a day.

You're welcome to blend any or all images, though you can only use the images provided. Any brushes or text are allowed, as always no animation.

CHALLENGE IMAGES:

- Please submit TWO icons this round.
- Only the remaining participants may enter.
- Only use images provided, no others.
- Blending is aloud but only with the images given.
- Do not post your icons anywhere else until results for this round are posted.

- Comment to this post and this post only with your entries.

NOTE ON SKIPS:
Seeing as though there are so few participants I would ask that you only use a skip if you have no possible way of getting your submission in on time. Using a skip simply because you want to pass to the next round is unfair and not what skips should be used for. Especially, as I've already pointed out, since we have so few participants.

VOTING RULES:
- Please do not vote for yourself.
- Vote according to the quality of the icons, please do not base it on which quote you like best.

- Rude votes will not be tolerated or accepted. "The icon sucks" is not reason.

Sorry this is a bit late as well.

CHALLENGE PROMPT:
This week you have only one image. It's from the May 2008 Roadshow photoshoot (courtesy JohnnyDeppWeb.com). Your challenge is simple, make an icon out of the image. No limitations on text or brushes. The only limitations are that you may only use this image.

Just a quick last minute reminder. Anyone wanting to participate in the second chance round must have their icon in by Saturday (tomorrow) at 11pm EST.

Remember that this round is for those who are NOT current participants, so it's basically for everyone but three people (who should know who they are). This is your chance to get back into the competition, or just get into it because you didn't enter the first round. So far we only have two entries.

This week the only people who may enter are those who are NOT current participants in the challenge. This is your chance to get back in the game! Deadline for entries: SATURDAY, MARCH 15th, 11pm EST.

If you win you become a participant in challenge four. You will automatically receive one skip. If you get a friend to participate in this round you will be given an extra skip. Simply pimping will not earn you an extra skip, you must actually get the person to participate. Let us know who this person is in a comment to this post.

CHALLENGE PROMPT:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This come-back contest is simple enough. Create ONE icon out of one or more of the four images given from the movie. You're welcome to blend the given images, but you may not use any other images.
