The only thing that bugs me is that I could have picked a specific artist or style or something but what happened instead? I was inspired by a little bit of this and a little bit of that and this set is soooo all over the place that's it's not even funny D: I just messed around with everything (especially the provided textures) and hoped it would somehow fit the theme :p I guess it's just that this was my first time at 20insp, and one of only two, so I wanted to do *everything*, lol.
Obviosuly, being the perfectionist that I am, I would have liked to make something SUPER AWESOME, especially since it's my first round and I'm not used to elite comms and their standards at. all. and I really really didn't want to make the mods regret approving me/make people question me belonging there, so of course I made three times more icons than necessary. I'm including some of the rejects as alts/extras here. Anyway I'm happy with most of these but wish I was super extra proud instead of mere 'happy', haha.
My claim, for some odd reason, was Star Trek (2009 movie). Which was stupid cause uh there are billions of works more suited to this theme, but hey, I enjoy nothing if not challenging myself...
* Comments would make me really happy, now more than ever :p

attempts at explaining how these fit the theme/what the inspiration was:
1 - I was going for a pencil sketch sort of look here
2 - word: outline, I was going for a look that's a weird combination of handdrawn and photography
3 - I was really inspired by this B.B. Tilt and Son commemorative bookmark
4 - here I went for a more traditional sort of painting look with a bit of vintagey coloring
5 - again inspired by realistic art
6 - used a lot of the provided textures by lookslikerain
7 - inspired by silhouette photography like these
8 - here I was trying a painted portrait sort of thing but decided to only make the background look painted cause I knew I'd suuuck at the whole 'painty look' others do so well, haha
9 - hmmm I started this with a similar idea in mind but got distracted by lookslikerain textures
10 - here I went a bit bolder with the painting thing but not sure if I love it or hate it. Won't become a habit anyway.
11 - again I tried a portraity sort of look with lots of textures from the provided sets
12 - word: circle
13 - inspired by Brooklyn Bridge by Louis Lozowick
14 & 15 - mostly inspired by Amedeo Modigliani, especially this and this, and also use lots of the new fuuurs texture set which is gorgeous enough to be art in itself ♥
16 - trying to go for a modernish art look
17 - inspired by pop art in general
18 - Andy Warhol
19 - I was randomly inspired by Kendell Carter's drip painting stuff
20 - here I was inspired by marble statues and their smoothness and how they reflect light, idk
Any thoughts to share? :3
