Week 75 - Quote Icons

This Week's challenge was chosen by, well, me.

I got a Gold Award for Week 69 - Grey Council.

The subject is Quote Icons.

Examples of what I mean are available at curtana's excellent post here.

There are some truly magnificent quotes in the Babylon 5 Universe.

Symbols from fonts are allowed, but no screencaps.

A few quotes can be accessed via the page linked to here, however, there are many other to choose from.  Everything from "faith manages" to G'Kar's speeches may be used.

Animation is permitted, provided that the icons comply with livejournal's filesize limits.

This challenge is open until Wednesday 13 January 2010 until 11:59 pm in Los Angeles.

Week 74 - Black, White and Colour Splash is now open until Wednesday 13 January (details here).

The poll for Week 73 - Battle Face is also open until Wednesday 13 January here. We've not had a great number of votes as yet.

I'll be visiting my Grandma and sans computer until at least 27 December.

Happy Holidays!


Ooh, quote icons! I love quote icons! This is gonna be fun. :D

Also, would it be okay if the quote is... modified slightly? For example, instead of the back and forth of the delusions of grandeur bit, have it say, like, "Delusions of grandeur: If you've going to have delusions, you may as well go for the really satisfying ones"? (That... may or may not be a motto of mine for the 'school' year.)

Yeah, that's fair because it makes more sense.

Go for it.

No need to have delusions; just do your very best by putting in the effort.

Best of luck :)
Okay, I have another question.

You said that symbols from fonts can be used, but no screencaps. What about other sorts of decoration, like stock images, little clip-arty things, or small drawings or something? 'Cause I have ideas for some of those things, but I don't want to overstep the challenge rules.


Actually, I should just make up all the icons I'm thinking of, and then just submit the ones that are okay. Or something. But, yeah, it would be good to know for posting.

ETA: Ooh, another another question. Is there a limit on the number of icons we can submit? 'Cause I'm just starting to go through quotes, and there are so many great ones.

Happy New Year!

No limit as to the number of icons. :)

Clip art and stuff is fine, I mean, common sense really.

The important thing is that they're quote icons so the focus should be on the text rather than any images featured.

(My keyboard was playing up a bit there, apologies.)
