20 Game of Thrones/ASOIAF for 20inspirations

I almost never ever add text to my icons (this represents every text icon I've made since August 2011...) so even when we started planning this round for 20insp I seriously never even expected to try. But the day the challenge was posted, I randomly got really inspired by Game of Thrones and particularly by the book quotes and some characters that haven't appeared in the show yet. It's definitely the longest I've ever taken to complete a challenge for 20inspirations since I started working on it almost 3 weeks ago and normally I finish in a few days. But, I honestly really liked it and even though I included a lot of textless alternates, I'm actually pretty satisfied with the originals. They aren't perfect but I feel like I really did improve in my text techniques!

20 Disney for 20inspirations
The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Tarzan, Princess & the Frog
Beauty & the Beast, Snow White, Tangled, Hunchback, Mulan, Pocahontas



For the far and close round, Disney wasn't my original choice, but in the end I thought it could be fun because I practically NEVER do animation close crops (plus the HP and GoT galleries I wanted to use were down~). I don't really do a ton of close crops anyway. So once I decided to do Disney I ended up doing 10 awesome ladies and I did a far crop & a close crop of each of them. This post is arranged so both icons of each lady are with each other instead of all the close together vs all the far together but it should still be obvious unless I really sucked at this theme~ I also at first tried to do a rainbow, but it was just too much to work in completely!

001-007 Teen Wolf
008-011 Breaking Bad
012-012 Harry Potter
013-017 Lord of the Rings
018-021 Various TV (Suits, Lost, Game of Thrones, New Girl)
022-025 Various anime (Arrietty, Code Geass, FMA: Brotherhood)
026-032 One Direction




So I haven't really made any icons since August with the exception of the few One Direction icons in this post. I was going to try to enter them for the simple round of inspired20in20 but a) photoshoots are hard and b) photoshoots are hard to keep simple and c) I forgot how to icon, so I quit! I'm posting these even though there's not really anything new because I'm hoping that clearing out my old folder will help be get started on making something new. Some of the rest were made for challenges so it's possible you might have already seen them around and the LotR/HP ones were going to be for Round 1 of theiconquest but I never finished that either. Such slacking lately.

This is a battle between myself and the fabulous pointblankdarcy. We decided to choose two common favorite fandoms and do a cap battle and then also include 10 technical themes where we could use any fandom. I loved doing this battle so much! You can check the fandom for each individual technical themed icon by hovering over it. Warning: we both used a lot of Teen Wolf, lol.

10 Community
10 Harry Potter
10 Miscellaneous (Game of Thrones, Parks and Rec, Teen Wolf, The Killing, Suits, Breaking Bad)




of course it's happening inside your headCollapse )

20 Lost icons (battle with vetica)

My first individual battle! Feature Lost and the lovely vetica. This post contains the 20 icons by him and the 20 icons by myself. I've never really iconned Lost all that much, even though it's one of my favorite shows. When it was airing, I wasn't that good at making icons and found a lot of it supremely hard to color. This was very fun to take a stab at though! Thanks to Jørgen for participating with me! :)
