Round #9: Information

Round #9 Rules:
• Icons must be made originally for this challenge, no prior work may be submitted. If it is found that you submit your previous work, you will be disqualified from the next round.
• All work must be your own, not someone elses.
• Make sure all images are PG-13 rated.
• Icons must fit the livejournal standard, under 40 kb, 100x100px and in either .png, .gif, or .jpg file format.
• When posting the finished ALL 20 please leave 3 icon examples, not a banner, and a link to the icon post/or lj-cut to your journal.
• The icon post must be unlocked for two reasons: 1. I need to be able to see your entries to post voting and 2. so people don't have to join to view your icons. (If they do join, it's a perk for you)
• ALL entries are moderated, which means that I have to accept the entry before it's made visible to the public.
• Please ONLY add the following tags for this round.
# round: 9, # user: ~you~ (optionally what fandom you use, ie. % tv: hannibal, % movie: harry potter, % stock, % actor: johnny depp, % actress: jennifer lawrence, etc. USE THE % IN THE BEGINNING!)
• You can use provided table to post your icons, but it's optional. You can create your own table, just make sure you name it properly so I will be able to find the right theme/icon.
• DO add a subject. FORMAT AS: Round #9: your username
• Completed 20 are due NOVEMBER 30th - COUNTDOWN


This round theme is 'A KIND OF MAGIC'. This contains all kind of magical aspects, wizards, witches, magicians, even animals, etc. As the rounds are multifandom, for this one you need to use caps only from shows/movies containing magic, so no 'real-life' shows are allowed.

List of suggested 'magical' movies
List of suggested 'magical' tv shows
List of mythical creatures you can use in caps

As for technical aspects, you need to use some of the following techniques (at least one of them must be visible in every icon, feel free to suggest any technique!):

star texture
fairytale coloring (almost candylike coloring)
B&W with color
white/light coloring
text not aligned in one line
limb disconnection from body
animal/creature personification
blurry look in icon/light coloring used
wand/hand waving gestures
close obscure crop
cindirella moment
