FINAL CHALLENGE. :D Good luck with this you two it's been a great round! Challenge this time is a little unorthodox and yes something I haven't tried in any of the past challenges or actually seen in the LIMS I've participated in so I hope it makes some sense.
THE FINAL SHOWDOWN.
For this challenge, you only have a single theme option in three parts, all three parts have to be complete (i.e. you will have to submit three icons). Voters will the vote for their favourite icons of each challenge to determine the final winner. Depending on your interpretation of this theme, you may make your icon accordingly.
›› The first theme is essentially a free for all with only one requirement - a maximum of 50% of the icon is allowed to contain an image, and the remaining 50% or above has to be a solid single mono-colour. Examples of this by gyaku: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
›› You will have to make an icon with two JE boys in the icon, both with their eyes not in the icon. You may choose to merely blank out their eyes or a crop from the nose and below.
›› Your icon will have to feature the word "away" using this image set on "multiply" above the base image (you can resize and modify this word as given, but otherwise only this image may be used and not any other text typed or otherwise).
›› You will have to make an icon from this provided image of your Idol which has represented you throughout this round: Chinen Yuuri and Nishikido Ryo.
›› Your icon will have to be desaturated, meaning only black, white and shades of gray are allowed in the icon.
›› Your icon will have to feature a crop ONLY of the Idol which has represented you. Meaning in the crop of the idol from the image provided, you musn't be able to tell that there was supposed to be another individual in the original image. This is acceptable (the white area behind Sho was Aiba but you can't tell it's Aiba/a person, therefore acceptable) but this isn't.
›› Your icon will have to include text in english, the name of the idol "Chinen Yuuri" and "Nishikido Ryo".
›› BONUS: In accordance to what we did for the first round, out of the two finalists, the icon for this theme which wins the most favourites, will be design of the Idol icons (i.e. the ones xenylamine has been using for all the result tally posts) for the next round!
Remember, you do not have to make an icon featuring your chosen Idol-character representing you during this challenge. Your icon merely has to satisfy either of the themes set for the week, featuring any JE boy.
The deadline for this challenge is Monday, 29th of June, at 8.00PM EDT [-4:00 GMT].

Please feel more than free to interpret the theme how you would like! We encourage wide interpretation. Be sure, however, that your icon fits the theme.

You will have until the submission deadline to correct it.
