You've come across idol_art
, the newest American Idol community on lj. I had come across a few icon communities for the show, but none were devoted to graphics as a whole. I decided to change that.
Here, you'll be able to post icons, banners, signatures, colorbars, friends only banners, manips, etc. Really, the only two criteria are (1) it must be AI related and (2) it has to be a graphic. Anything AI related would be past and current contestants, the judges, the show in general, etc. Anything graphic related would be anything you would do in your graphics program. I'm not too picky here, especially since I love pictures people recolor, splice together, and caption. However, this does NOT mean you can post picspams. I firmly believe those should be reserved for your personal lj. This also means no posting of info or gossip. There are a few communities for that, and this one is devoted to graphics, not information.
One of the things I like to do is to tag each post. I find it makes things easier when searching for specific contestants or certain types of graphics. Please try to tag your posts. I will do my best to keep them all tagged, but it would be helpful if you could tag your own. This way, I don't have to spend hours doing it.
A note on tags: I made tags already for the more popular contestants from each season. Rather, the ones we still hear anything about. I left all of the season 7 contestants up to the top 10. If any other tags are necessary, I will add them, but that's the way I decided to do the tags for now. If you're really upset that your favorite is missing, just leave a comment, and let me know. If people will and do make graphics of someone not on the list, I'm more than happy to add the contestant.
Our first layout was coded by minty_peach
. She has many layouts and graphics available at her graphics journal, and I highly recommend checking it out. I did create the banner, and it features our top 10 season 7 contestants who are ready to hit the road for the summer tour. I'll probably change the banner and colors a few times. Just to keep things interesting.
Thanks for checking out the community, and get to posting!
