Farscape season 2 icons for farscape20in20  
These are for farscape_20in20 round 17. It was a season round and I picked season 2, obviously, having already iconned s3 and s4, and these three really are my favorites.

Anyway, I MADE IT!!!!!!!!! \o/ I serisously didn't think I would this time. I know I always complain about how busy I am but this time I've been literally programming almost 24/7. But whenever I could afford a little break, I went straight for iconing.
Because of the lack of time, this is my quickest set ever and thus it's far from the best I've done IMO, but I still definitely like them enough to want to post them :) I didn't have time for complexity or coming up with something really new at all, but instead I decided to really work on my on coloring, texture use and lighting this time around, and I hope some of it works for you.

Um, sorry this is a bit Chiana-heavy. She's so gorgeous that she's perfect for iconing. The lack of Scorpy shocks me too :p

OK, I am totally in love with ac#3. I love the crop, the colouring, everything. In fact I love your ac set. You can never have enough D'argo as far as I am concerned. Silhouette is really fun and clever and your req texture is not what I was expectig...in a good way!

It's a great set.

Aw, thank you!!! Oooh, I should make more Dargo. He's one of the harder characters to icon definitely, but I can see a shortage of D icons now that you mention it... :p

Yes, the lack of Scorpius does worry me too... It's not like you at all! :-D

Back to more serious ground, the "Artist Choice" row is nothing short of attention-grabbing: I love the color choice, and there is something in the way you arranged them that makes it look as if a sun ray is passing through them all.

Your Chiana pictures are powerfully evocative of her character, and I'm snurching the "vertical" Aeryn. Just because. ;-)

Great work, as always!

Thank you so much again! Yay, I'm happy you like the ac set, while it's not as ambiotious technically as most of my sets, I did try really hard to get it right so a big yay if it's working for you :)

I could tell you focused on colouring and lighting without you even having to say it and the stuff you produced this round is amazing! I adore the crop on #4 of AC and the colouring there is really cool as well. I love how you emphasised the difference in their skin tone and still managed to maintain the overall cohesiveness of the icon! Also your monochrome icons are out of this world, favourite colour and extreme close-up are stunning icons and I believe you reached a similarly high standard with this style with your Hermione icons in your last post :D

Omg your comments are THE BEST! Thank you so much! :D It's still not my favorite set, but I'm so happy you can see that much good in it :) I love doing monochrome. I mean I do it waaaay too much, why is it suddenly so hard to do natural colorings for me? So a big yay if they're at least any good, makes me feel less guilty of overusing that style ;)

I was trying to do a Rygel silhouette too, I tried working with 3 different caps but I just couldn't get it to work; so I am quite impressed with that one.
I really love the texture work on Favorite Color. Also like how you used the required texture and just made it bnw, it works well like that.

The look of Touch is really interesting, because it has that sort of grungy look that also makes it look a bit like an old photo, which works with the image I think.
