Farscape mini-batch: 12 John&Scorpius icons :D  
So this is for the farscape_land challenge 'Through the Years'. The purpose was to showcase how a character or relationship changes through the show, and I, being predictable, chose John & Scorpy not only because it's my otp, but also because the only shippy icon I currently have of it is so old and butt-ugly and I wanted to make some new ones! I don't expect anyone else to want them, but that's quite cool cause it gave me total freedom to do whatever style I myself like with no pressure of pleasing others, that's why these are a bit on the trippy side ;D

The challenge only demanded six icons but I'd feel awkward posting that few in a separate entry so I had to make at least 12.


I know this isn't a big post, but comments would still make me really happy :)

They put a big smile on my face. :-)
Some of them are very well done but maybe a little too... technical for me, I don't know how to put it. And some are simply awesome :-)

I love how you decided to explore the darkness (although I am sure you think of it as lightness ;D) of the journey of torture Scorpy subjected John to! Your cookiness is wonderful!

You know me and icons but I adore the third last! That scene is so transcendentally disturbing!

I quite like 5 (apparently I just like simple icons, idk why), 7, 9 (this one is really gorgeous, love the way you have Scorpy silhouetted there), 10 (it's such a dirty scene, and I sort of love it too) and 12.
They all look great overall; though some of the text is a bit hard to read, at least for me.

You have walked a different road with these ones, at least from my uneducated eyes: the colors are used in different ways (like 1, 4 and 6) and I also like the square cuts in 8 and 10 (again, sorry for the non-technical expression. I hope my meaning carries through anyway).

And I love, absolutely LOVE the cut and coloring of nr. 9 - one of the most powerful images from ITLD2: I like the way you went with vibrant colors that remind me of flames.

**loud cheering**

Your blending with this batch is awesome!! I particularly love #1. Not only is the composition fabulous but the the contrasting colouring adds so much interest and the text is absolutely perfect :)
The lighting and heavy shadows in #8 is pretty gorgeous as well. This is a great batch!

YAY, Scorpy icons! Hehe, I love how you just stuck to your own style at this batch, it really shows. Not a bad thing, they're just a little different.

You know that my liking goes in a totally different direction, but I adore #5, #9 and #11 and my absolute favourite is #7. Oh, and 2 and 3 are really nice too.

Yeah, okay, I do like this batch, it just requires a little more getting used to. ;) But overall great work, and I always love to see what your capable of doing when you're not trying to stick to a certain style or theme.
