Farscape_20in20: Round 13 icons  
My entry for the 13th round of farscape_20in20. Overall I'm quite happy with this set - I can't believe how much I enjoyed making these. The broader themes left so much room for creativity! Sorry I went all texture crazy again :P I was really inspired by lights this time and that's why there's random glow on most of these. I tried some pretty risky colorings too, I hope it works for you.
Oh, and I just noticed less than an hour ago that I was missing one icon. I can't believe I was that careless! So the result was a quick last minute icon that looks like crap and I hate it, but I'm not telling (yet) which one it is cause then its crappiness would be just highlighted. :D

Thank you sooo much again!!

I apologize for what will probably be a much shorter comment than the amazing one you left me!
No problem, because 1) my inability to express my thoughts in a compact form is nothing to be proud of and 2) your comment is still HUGE in the universal comment scale. ^^

I'm glad that you like the set, I was kind of afraid that if someone wouldn't like it it would be you just because the style is so different from yours. So I'm really, really flattered :) Especially for the TF icon, OMG.

I don't know if I would like the super glowy look all the time, but here, with this set - I can't imagine it any other way.
I know what you mean, I don't think I'd like any look all the time. That's why I keep changing it for each round :) I already have a general direction I'll go for the next round and it will be sooo different! I can't wait to make them. ^^

the composition on 2 - he's looking at someone else, right? Blurring them out creates a really lovely D'Argo icon...he's so hard to get.
I think the image I used was only D'Argo, but still probably looking at someone. The middle part I blurred/covered in textures was just some boring blackness, which is why it needed to go, lol ;)

Would you be willing to post a version of 3 without the text? I like it with, and hesitate to ask because it’s an artistic decision, but the image is so soft and dreamy and captures the essence of “crossing over” so well…I’d love to see it without.
Of course! Always feel free to ask for alterations, it takes nothing away from the artistic choice of the first version :D Here. Um, I can't say I personally care for it much - it was supposed to be just decoration for the background, with the text being the focal point, which is why I left almost all contrast out of his face (and bad contrast = cardinal sin to me, lol)... but I guess it's personal preference so if you like it like this, I'm just happy :D

I'm so glad you like Alien 5 so much. She's one of my least favorite alines but when I saw that cap I just instantly saw it like this, with this coloring, and knew I had to do it. It's one of those rare cases where the result actually ended up as I imagined it!

Thank you so much for liking this set and for the wonderful comment. I'm always stunned by your ability to appreciate different styles and colorings, even if they aren't something you'd do yourself. ^^

The Stark icon - I actually like it a lot better with the text, after seeing it without! But thank you for linking it, it's interesting to see the difference.

Thank you so much for liking this set and for the wonderful comment. I'm always stunned by your ability to appreciate different styles and colorings, even if they aren't something you'd do yourself. ^^

I think life would be really boring if I only liked things I'd choose to do myself LOL But thank you :)

I'm already looking forward to your next set!
