Welcome to inspirations100!! This community was made when a community that I actually was taking part in really started to basically slow down a little. It's basically as simple as four easy steps.
1) Pick a subject, any single subject that you like. From UFC fighters to Butterflies, I mean any subject.
2) Decide how many icons of that subject you're willing to try and make. Claims extend to 25, 50, 100, 150 or 250 in terms of amount. That way, if you're really interested or only a little interested, there's a claim amount for you.
3) Claim the subject in the CLAIMS POST, get a comment for your approval within a day or two. You can have up to FIVE claims at any one time.
4) Start making those icons! When they're all done, make sure to let us know with a comment to the COMPLETED CHALLENGES POST and within a few days? You'll get a shiny banner for completing your claim!
Now, here's a list of the links you might find useful.
