"It was he who lit the flames of love in gods and men, armed with either a bow and arrows or a flaming torch."

C H A L L E N G E
The human body has been a constant inspiration of art for as long as there has been mankind. Enter Eros, son of Aphrodite, the Greek god of love in the sense of passionate and physical desire. He embodied love, athleticism, sexual power, and art.

It's a natural thing to notice the curves, lines, gorgeous smiles, and handsome faces of the people around you. What do you notice first in a person? What is it that you appreciate? In a 3 x 3 icon set (9 total), your challenge is to showcase beauty. You may use one person or several, general stock or your favorite actor or actress. There are requirements, of course! You've gotta get up close and personal. Each icon must be 'close-cropped' or cropped in a style where a portion of the figure is not visible.

R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ Create a cohesive, matching set of 9 avatars (standard icon size of 100 x 100 on Hex or smaller) representing beauty.
+ Each of the icons must be closely cropped in an unusual, interesting way such as shown below:

+ 2/9 icons should not be square.
+ 3/9 icons should be b&w.

either is fine.
as long as you can tell they are 9 separate icons, I'm not opposed to them being on one image.

So basically, is that so that you will have to have 9 icons , 2 of which can't be squares but 7 must be squares? And if I want to put them in a same picture, they don't have to form a square?

None of them have to be square if you don’t want them to be. But at least two have to be another shape.
And that’s fine if it doesn’t form a square. But it needs to visibly be 9 icons and not a graphic if it’s submitted as one image

any chance you can explain what you mean by

cohesive, matching set



like I get how using different parts of the same person would make it cohesive... but like if you don't want to use the same person I am not sure what else would qualify?

Anything from colors to shapes, textures, and so forth can all make a set match without the image base itself matching.

So the images in the first post are about necks it appears. That counts as matching?

LOL.
I didn't realize that, actually.

I mean, the way they're cropped is the point of those three. Or even all have vibrant colors.
If you'd make a bunch of icons and post them as a 'set' in your portfolio - that's what set means here, too. Nothing different.
I mean, don't have a banana and then someone's hair and then a palm tree or some shit like that.

I'm still not quite sure if I know how to use that submission box, but maybe you will get the image out of there... I submitted mine now

That’s what I assumed. Thank you!

Since it's my first time doing a A&G graphic challenge, how do you post your images in the submission box? Do you use BBCode or HTML? No need to tag.

b&w means Black and White, right? Just double checking.
