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

Omg, thanks for the comment, it's always a lovely surprise when someone finds and comments on one of the older sets.

WHAT? You really saved freaking 13 of these?! :D That's crazy and amazing. Wow, thanks a lot, I'm super flattered! I know this was my most popular set so if I was smart I'd try to replicate it all the time now, but somehow that wouldn't be as fun, so I'm letting this be a good memory :) I'm really glad you like the colors though, especially since really high powers have criticized their saturation a bit and I get that it's a bit much and that's why I've sorta tried to tone it done now, but I'm also super happy if it can be an inspiration to someone else.

I also admire how you make small figures so clear. I'm always afraid to go small, that people won't be able to see what it is I'm iconning.

Oh, I'm the exact opposite! I'd love to do more close crops, but small is the safest way for me cause the image quality usually isn't great to begin with and I fear that leaving the image larger will lead to the fatal combination of blotchy + grainy + blurry :p But in other shows with more HQ caps I'm all crazy about doing close cropping right now!

Thank you so much once again!
