20 Harry Potter icons for inspired20in20  
So I guess I made a set for the 7th round of inspired20in20! The theme for this round was Attraction. At first I thought this was going to be a nice fiasco because there are movies and shows way more sexually expressive than Harry Potter, and I don't really even ship any of the characters (anymore). But then I thought about it again and realized I didn't want to change my claim, but instead take this as a challenge, and I think I did alright. There are still some things I'd change if I had the time but for the most part I'm actually quite happy with the set, and I hope you enjoy it too. If it seems a bit unclear in some of the icons how it relates to the attraction theme, it's most likely one of those icons where I just saw a cap and went all 'god, how attractive is he/she in this one? Definitely fits the theme!' ;)

Also, I can't believe how weird and scary and great it feels to post an icon set of something other than Farscape. I mean, srsly! About time I tried something else, no? :P

Lovely set :)
I adore 2 and 3. Love the blue and the text.
6 & 7 are also great because of the nice purple.

The entire first row is mindblowing. Seriously. The texture use, and the text, and the compositions are all incredible. I especially love #2, which is, in all seriousness, the hugest deal ever, because I've yet to actually watch that moment in the movie because I disliked Cho that much. So I bow down to you for making me feel excited to see it in icon form.

Omg, thank you so much, you're too sweet!

Also, if 2 looks any good at all, it's all thanks to a gorgeous texture that you just might recognize ♥

I envy your texture use! I really like the grunge-y feel of these (especially in #16).
And #3 is just so glowy and soft! I love it *___*

Wow, fantastic set! 3, 6, 7,11, and 17 are my favorites. You have a wonderful sense of color and emotion. Great job!

These are really pretty. You've done some really interesting things with text and composition, I think, and you've worked with the theme really well (even if you just iconned pretty people; I think that's the best interpretation of the theme, tbh)! I really, really love #3. The composition is amazing, and everything so hazy and kind of sad. Excellent use of blue monotone coloring. The blending and text work are ace as well! I also really love #17! perfect texture use. The whole set is great though! ♥

Yay for Harry Potter :D
I love the composition of 2. Your work with shadows is spectacular, I love 12 and 17 in particular. I adore the crop on 7 as well :)

Oh. My. God. They're fantastic! I know you asked for concrit but I really don't have it. Except that these finally pushed me over the edge to actually start an icon collection. Will upload 5 of these (with credit of course) and start using them today. :D

So you've now become my number 1 enabler concerning all things icons. ;)

Aw, thank you so much jac!!! You're too sweet. I'm always amazed when you like my work cause we have such different styles. And yay for starting an icon collection :)

4 is sensational from the composition to the soft pink coloring! The top and bottom borders frame it very well! Lovely job with the crop in 6. It feels very dainty and elegant. 11 is cool cuz he looks like he's aflame! The yellow/orange coloring suits the character cuz he's fiery and dangerous!

ho.ly.crap. 07 is so fantastic that i can't even focus on anything else right now, other than how much i love everything about it. i love the blur, but also how you can still make everything out, and the colouring is just fantastic. same goes for 03-- the blending, colouring, and light blobs are on point. 02 has really great blends, too. and the text work is flawless in this whole set! mostly, though, i love what you've done with textures all over the place, like in 01 and 16. great work!!

These are so lovely! So beautiful colors, light efect, crop and everything :) I specifically love 7 (love light and colors), 9 (great color), 12 (I love crop, negative space and colors), 15 (awesome levels, beautiful text) and 16 (great texture, colors).

I take 7, 12 and and 18 (love that, too!) I love all of them! ;)
