20 icons for Farscape 20 in 20 
26th-Sep-2011 10:57 pm
Us with Nichelle Nichols at Fedcon
Okay, so this post is full of first times ;)! It's the first time I've done theme-specific icons, the first time I'm participating in this community and the first time I'm using an icon table (which was a total pain in the butt, I used three different tables to finally find one that worked - thanks again for your help Mav and John_Scorpy - this took longer than making the icons LOL)! I really really hope that this works!!

The quality of my icons is not very good, I'm just at the beginning of my career as an hobby graphic artist, and I just learned today how to use brushes in my program, which is too late to factor in to the icons for this round, but definitely will increase the quality of my icons for the next round (well, hopefully anyway)!!

I LOVE iconing however and anyone has to start somewhere, right?

Thanks!! Circle I had to think about a lot, I'm glad you liked it! And AC 4 is one of my favourite scenes!

For a beginner these are really good! :) I especially love the crop in 'amused', it's lovely. Nice job, and good to have you on board!

Thank you! I'm happy how 'amused' turned out too!

Really great icons! I really love 2 colours, zoom and amused :) Category set is also lovely, 4 and 5 are so funny ;D

AC is great too, 1 and 4 ra emy favorite! :)

Thank you! Hehe, annoyed John is the best, I noticed my AC's were all John and Aeryn, thought about adding others, but I just love those two too much!

GREAT JOB! Especially for your first round!

I love your crop on Sidekick and Struggle is fab...great moment and crop. Circle is a very good choice, love John's smile in Center Crop, and I love the crop in Amused! Weird makes me LOL. Love it.

Your category set is really good, 2 and 4 are so cute, but I really love 3...it's bright and soft and sad. lovely. And you know, 5 really makes me think - I've seen the show like 2546627 times and I've NEVER realized that those three are probably meant to be reflections of the Moyans. I always thought, "Oh, that's handy that there's a Hynerian and a Nebari and a warrior guy they call all pair up with." LOL Now I want to rewatch the episode.

I love AC 4 and 5 too, and the lighting and color on 2 is perfectly melancholy.

Thanks very much! I'm really happy that you liked AC 3, I thought of you while I made it, it's such a sad scene I didn't appreciate before you made me fall in love with Chiana!! So that's kinda my thank you ;)!

Hehe, the mirror image thingie was the first thing I notice, especially with Aeryn trying to get back in PK mode and the PK, who seemed innocent but turned out bad!! So much layers to this episode, I love it!

Yay, welcome to the comm! It's awesome to have you here.

This is a really good first set! There's a lovely soft glow in these icons, it's really unique, I love it. My favorites are Struggle (brilliant crop and image choice, so much emotion), Center crop, Body Part (awesome choice again), Amused (another nice crop), cat #2 (very cute), cat #3 (so sad, with an almost ethereal feel), and ACs #4 and #5.

I'm just super-excited to see new iconers around, it's not long since I started iconing myself and it's a GREAT hobby. The progress can be so fast, especially in the beginning, it's thrilling.

Anyway, very nice job!! :)

Thanks for the welcome and the nice feedback!! Yes, I don't like hard colors so I went for soft in pretty much all of them, glad you liked that! Hehe, I liked body part very much, thought of that almost immediately!

Iconing is real fun, I learned so much already, you're right the progress seems to be very fast.

Thanks! And thank you very much for the links, I'm sure they'll be very helpful, already looked into the tutorial for using brushes, and it's really good!!
