Very beautiful!

I especially like Pop Art, Famiy, Grey, Duplicate, Stolen Claim and Wild but I must say that my favorite-favorites are AC2 and AC4. SO GORGEOUS!

OH GURL!! These are phenomenal! You've knocked it out of the park AGAIN. Where do I begin with the good?

My favorites include Wild, Mono+text, Evil (that scene is a FANTASTIC choice, and the textures are perfect); Cat 3, and the entire AC set. I think I agree with Kikimay - AC 2 and 4 are my favorites, but I also like 3. Just that entire set - so lush and luscious; your mastery of pale colors (without being "chalky") is a thing of beauty.

Actually AC2 is my favorite here - love it SO much. What is the difference between it and the alt version? They look the same to me. (Snaggage will happen by the by.)
starry_night: btvs: buffy purplestarry_night on March 29th, 2015 02:41 am (UTC)
Thank you so much hon! I'm beyond thrilled you like them - I had one of those rounds where I was not at all happy with my set so it's lovely to hear comments like this <3

For AC2 and the alt, there's a very subtle difference in the brightness/contrast levels. And snag away :D
red_satin_doll: Buffy STSP pastelred_satin_doll on March 30th, 2015 08:17 am (UTC)
I had to look at the two side by side to see the differences - yes, it's subtle, so I snagged both for safety's sake. *lol*

And I can't imagine why you're unhappy with this set but I know the feeling - I always have horrible doubts about the work that other people seem to appreciate best.

Did I mention before that Wild is incredibly powerful? There's something about your treatment of the image that totally runs counter to the context - the softness and pallor - and only makes it stronger somehow than if you'd gone for lots of texture or monochrome etc.
starry_night: btvs: buffy purplestarry_night on March 31st, 2015 09:39 am (UTC)
Lol, as I said, snag away. I'm so happy you like that one :)

And yeah, I'm my own worst critic in general but sometimes I just have moments like that.

I'm so glad you like wild. I had such a hard time with it until I got to the caps for Dead Things (I think?). Then that whole scene just inspired me - Sarah does emotion so damn well!
red_satin_doll: Buffy STSP pastelred_satin_doll on March 31st, 2015 07:24 pm (UTC)
I had a really hard time with Wild as well - we already had "evil" and I know "wild" isn't the same thing · although our classical, judeo-christian western culture often links the two, so I had to make sure I wasn't letting that seep into the icon. And then, what did "wild" mean?

Dead Things probably would no† have occurred to me but it's a great choice. A very different type of "wildness" to Cave Buffy.

Sarah does emotion so damn well!

Right? After I started watching the series I discovered a new law of physics: Sarah cries, I cry. Automatically. (Have you seen her movie Possession? It's a cut-rate version of Birth with Nicole Kidman but there's a single scene where Sarah depicts grief and depression better than I've seen in almost any other film - in basically two camera shots, mostly close-ups on her face.

Joss said that when filming Buffy she didn't understand the hopelessness, emptiness and lethargy/ennui of depression because she'd never been through it herself but DAMN - I have lived with depression for years and she knocks it out of the park.

Ooh, I haven't seen that one but I think I'll have to check it out. I love watching SMG in dramatic roles.
red_satin_doll: Buffy STSP pastelred_satin_doll on April 3rd, 2015 10:21 pm (UTC)
Have you seen The Return? I haven't yet. It's sort of a horror film but IDK? SMG plays a young woman who is a self-cutter.

I just voted in round 8 of 20in20 - good luck, hon!

I really like the colours of the first set, but the seond one is really A M A Z I N G and the categories are flawless!
starry_nightstarry_night on March 31st, 2015 09:40 am (UTC)
Thank you so much my dear. I experimented a bit more with the second so I'm thrilled you like it :D
