20 Star Trek (2009) icons for 20inspirations + 13 extras

omgomgomg I'm excited. I made a set for 20inspirations and it's my first time participating there and the theme (art) was super hard and I applied so late and didn't even expect to get in that I hadn't even started my set yet so I had to pretty much rush to make this as soon as I was accepted and yeah it was CRAZY. But fun too!

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. NEXT ROUND IT WILL HAPPEN I SWEAR! :P

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
* Concrit is welcome
* If taking anything, credit would be nice but not necessary
* Please don't hotlink
* My resources


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 though this type of thing is what I always do anyway
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
