Season 4 icons for farscape_20in20  
This is my set for the 14th round of farscape_20in20. My claim was season 4. The category set is especially dedicated to virkatjol, who gave me some caps for inspiration. I hope you like them, and I'll icon the rest too at some point! :D

Okay, I must say I'm really happy with this set. I actually think it's my best this far and obviously hope someone agrees :') After not seeing my last set do all that well I *really tried* to do something simple for this round, but in the end it just felt wrong and fake and I couldn't stop myself from doing the things I really wanted to do, even if it meant a smaller likelihood of success. So this set is pretty much a representation of the way I'd like to go now, which makes me especially nervous about this. I especially loved the whole Rainbow theme and thought a b&w AC set would be a nice contrast with it! :)

* I love comments!
* Concrit is welcome, a comment doesn't have to be all hearts and roses. If something doesn't work for you, I'd rather hear it straight and direct in the comments than just see it from the polls, because if I know the *reason* an icon doesn't do well, I might learn from it, and learning is a huge part of why I even icon! :P

Thank you so much!!

Two Profiles- LOOOVE. Do you have any links to tutorials that show how to do that effect? I can never ever get it!
I'm afraid not :/ I've been looking for one too but failing, so I ended up just sort of trying stuff. If you don't find another one, I could try writing one for it since I still have the psd.

I'm so glad you like the alts too. I liked the idea of 3, 12 and 13, but ended up doing so much stuff on them that they lost too much image quality to be included. 4 on the other hand had a good image quality but I felt the text placement was awkward - it was supposed to be my Defining Moment. I'm always stunned if people like the ones I see as flawed, so thank you :')

Also, do you use Despeckle to make them sort of softer looking?
This makes me sound really stupid but I hadn't even noticed that function before so I had to look it up. No, I do all the blurring by hand with the blur tool so that I can control exactly which parts I want more blurry and which more sharp. Despeckle looks like it would work in most cases though!
