Hey everyone! Welcome to ISML 2016. We're currently in the process of preparing for the Regular Season and we'd like as much help as we can get with making avatars. Please read the guidelines below, but they should be mostly the same from 2013 onward. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or send me a PM! Otherwise, please post all new avatars in a new post! This will make it easier for me to compile a master post in the staff forums without any duplicates.

DEADLINE: July 8th 2016

Avatars must be spoiler-tagged with the character's name (and series name, if possible).
Example:
Roromiya Karuta @ Inu x Boku SSShow
Image
Natsume TakashiShow
Image
Using the Template (Please read this if you haven't made avatars before!)
SpoilerShow
When you open the template, it should look like this, with the Test Image layer selected:

Image

Notice that all images should go inside the group. The purpose of this group is to round the edges of any picture you put inside it, so it's very useful. Make sure all images are inside the group. Now when you put in a new picture, its edges will automatically be rounded. When you resize your picture, it should look like this:

Image

The corners should be transparent (not white).
Saving the avatar

This is important. Always save as a PNG to preserve transparency! Use the regular Save As... command from Photoshop, and chose None for interlace options.
Note: Do not save as a JPG, GIF, or PNG-8. Use PNG-24 (default).

Some Tips from Hikari-chan
-Don't cut off the chin in the avatar. Most of the time you can show the full chin.
-The top of the head should never be shown. If so, then the avatar is probably too small.
-Some hair on the forehead should be shown. If not, then the avatar is probably too big.
-Be careful of turning heads, because those are often troublesome.
-Avoid empty spaces. You may shift the avatar off-center to cover them up.
-If the character in the avatar is not recognizable, then you may need to zoom out or find a new picture.
-Never resize up an image (make it bigger). If you made a mistake in resizing an image down, undo the transformation and try again.
-Avoid awkward body part placement around the edges. Hinagiku's avatar from above has part of her hand cut off on the top. This is fixed below.
+ Few more from Aru-chan
-If you think the avatar might be blurry, it probably is. Try to find a higher resolution and better quality of the picture. Alternatively, you could sharpen it, but NEVER overdo this.
-Pay attention to color tone of the avatar.
-Before you submit an avatar, take a careful look and ask yourself honestly: Would others recognize the character?

Examples of good avatars

Image Image Image
Image Image Image

These are grouped by highest priority to lowest priority, divided by the dashes (---) !! Please prioritize first two groups of each list first if possible.
These are the characters in most need of avatars. If you make any not on this list, even if they are candidates, there is a chance they may not get used.

I have over 700 and I don't want to upload and copy the link for every one of them, can I put it into all into zip folder and send it as a download link instead? Each avatar will have the character name attached. Any more I made after that will be posted as a image in this post.

Thanks for asking; that was my bad, I compiled the list before the tiebreaker rules were taken into effect since they were all at the bottom.
akumaxx wrote:Is this list part of the main candidates?
Yes, this list is a fraction of the main candidates who do not have avatars, or have not enough sufficient avatars.

thanks for these but I'm focusing on getting main tournament avatars first before I ask for winter or spring submissions. I will make a mental note for this though.
