Season 3 icons for farscape_20in20  
My entry for the 9th round of the awesome farscape_20in20. I claimed the 3rd season.

I have to confess something: I'm a total texture junkie. These have approximately seven hundred billion textures each. Gah. I've always liked to use them, but I guess the Category theme really triggered a large-scale addiction now :D I also have the obsession to tweak my icons until I go crazy; really, I uploaded 63 freaking icons, almost all of which were just slightly different versions of the same ideas. So now I decided that I'll post what I have and be done with it. That's also why I'm posting alternatives for the first time; there were so many to choose from and I'm still not sure if I made the right choices, so at least I want to show some of the rest too :P

Take all you want as long as you don't hotlink, credit would be appreciated, and, most importantly, please do comment! :)

Thank you so much, you flatter me :'D Favorite Scene was a bit tough to make, because I've used that scene in *so* many icons already so I didn't think I could come up with anything new. That scene is just so clearly my favorite, lol.

I really wanted to put Alt #9 into the set, but I couldn't get the same effect I used in the other texture icons to work on it, so I had to leave it aside (or to change the rest of the set too).

These rae great as always.

I LOVE bright colours. I so didn't think of that for theme.

I really love the colouring and texture you used in BFF and the blending in Fav Scene is great. I love that scene too. Love your ENS. LOVE IT!.

The textures you've used in your cat set are lovely and the execution is flawless. I also love all your alts with the textures. Especially #9. And I love the 2 B&W in your artists choice . Espically the blurring. I love a blur (if you hadn't guessed. Chianas expression in ac#2 is fab. Great cap choice and crop.

Thanks for the lovely comment!! (No need to worry about your commenting skills).

Lol, I thought 'Bright Colors' was like the least imaginative own theme ever :D it was the first one to pop into my mind, but I liked it so I thought whatever, I'll just go with it :)

I actually combined so many different textures in my category that any individual textures became pretty much unrecognizable - which I'm glad of, because it makes me feel like I contributed to creating the 'texture' part as well. I can reveal though that a big part was played by the Inhibition set by Azuremonkey. ^^

Once more, thanks for all the kind words!

Oh, these are wonderful. I especially love the 'texture' ones. Will definitely snap #2 of those, I need a good Pilot icon.

Great set! :)

Fabulous set!!!

I actually love your Levels. It took me a second to register what it was, but that really works for the moment; I love the disorienting, blurred look.

I adore Bright Colors and BBF - yay Jool! Drama is a terrific choice and I love the crop and the coloring, the way it seems to fade out while still being clear. Eyes is so sad (and such a brilliant blue) and what a unique way to do favorite scene! I love the coloring. Also great coloring on ENS, Middle of the Season, and Untruth (wonderful choice as well) and Dark is so sad!

I really like your textures. The colors and textures make them look almost like paintings, more than photographs. I really love how Pilot's blending, but they're all so pretty.

Great AC set/theme. So much emotion. I think my favorite is 2.

Beautiful Alts - I'm very taken with 2, 3 (great crop), 5, 10, and 14.

Aaw, THANK YOU! Why does it feel like your comments are getting even more and more awesome every time I think they've reached the top of awesomeness? :D I mean, this pretty much covers all of these icons. *_*

Yay for the Levels thing, maybe you're becoming a levels fan after all and your next set will be all levels ;)
Of the themes, Dark was the hardest one for me, because my style is pretty bright and high contrast, which means the highlights are usually, well, very light in my icons. So this was so out of my comfort zone. I've always had tremendous respect for your ability to make dark icons that are very pretty, so I'm super glad that you like it :)

Thanks for the wonderful words about the textures too ^^

I knew I had to include Zhaan's death here in some way, and the first thing that came to my mind was to make an AC set about that :P Still bitter about the fact that I couldn't get all my favorite season 3 things here, though. But at least I've already done ITLD icons, otherwise half of these would have been of that.

Alt 3 was sooo close to being included in my Category, because at the last possible minute I realized I had no Crais in there and his role on the season is so brilliant I had to make one of him. So I left out Alt 9 and made several Crais icons. In the end I felt the one I chose was a bit better, but I still rather like Alt 3 too =)
