A seinen anime and manga based icon contest.

Welcome to seinenawards, a weekly icontest community based around seinen anime and manga.

What is seinen? Seinen is a genre of anime and manga generally aimed towards 18-30 year old men, and as such tends to have more complex plots, relationships and art than shounen anime and manga. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and genders. Seinen titles are very diverse, ranging from cute series such as Chi's Sweet Home and Chobits to the ultraviolent Berserk and Hellsing.

Each week you will be given three different themes to choose from:

general: a word, possibly a certain series, character or even a texture will be provided for you. Your goal will be to create an icon that matches this theme.
lyrical: lyrics from a song will be posted. If you choose to use this theme, you must use at least three consecutive words from the song.
image: an image will be provided for you. You may crop, resize, color & etc... the to image, but it must be the only image used in your icon.

You must be a member to participate.
Do not vote for yourself or ask others to vote for you.
You may only use official images. No fanart or doujinshi is allowed.
If you are unsure if a certain series is seinen, you may ask in a comment or look it up at any of these lists: 1 2
