226.  
Still not really loving these. But I can only stare at them for so long before I actually throw them away so here they are.
Bright side is that I love this comm idea, especially since I've been struggling a lot lately with making a full set of 20.

Buffy Summers (BtVS S2) for 10in30






[1-5]
[6-10]

Alternate
[11]

Seriously? I love 1-6 and the alt.

#5 is that sort of perfect extra-close crop I keep trying to achieve and keep failing at.

Ok, wait, there is a 10 in 30 comm? I just joined. Because that would be so up my alley - coming up with 20 icons in a set seems overwhelming to me most times.

I don't know that I have time for this round but maybe next one? Anyhoo, your icons are gorgeous don't tell yourself otherwise, 'kay?

Thank you for this lovely comment hon <3
I'm thrilled you like them and your comment has made my day :)

And yeah, I was so happy when this comm was started because I am seriously struggling with a 20in20 set these days. I hope you'll play next round too :D

Your icons give me something to aspire to, they are just that lovely.

And I'll definitely plan for the next round - good luck with this one! There's some amazinginly talented artists participating.

I really like use of fake background in "far" icons! My favourites are #6, #7, #10 and #3 (great crop!)

Great job on these! Buffy caps are really hard to work with and these look really nice :) I especially like #4, #5 and #8

Thank you! I'm so happy you like them :)

And tell me about it. I still don't really know what possessed me to icon early Buffy with my current lack of inspiration, lol :P

Great icons! Your cropping and shadow/light work is fanatastic! My gaves are 3, 4, 5, 7 and 9.

These are all so stunning. I love the inherent softness that your icons have, it's all kinds of beautiful. The close crop set in particular wows me with this, but also with the variety of colouring styles you managed to achieve. The vibrancy of #1 is lovely, and the monochrome of #2 is just wow. #3 is absolutely stunning, it's such a unique crop, and the use of lighting and contrast here is incredible. The contrast again in #4 is wow, and the soft, natural tones of #5 work so beautifully with the more extreme close crop you've used. I also love the way you've used removed backgrounds and created space in your far set too. The softness of #8 drew my eye instantly, as did the bold pinks in #9. Lovely work!

Oh wow, thank you so much for this comment <3

I've been really lacking in inspiration lately and it has just made my day that you like how these turned out! I'm especially thrilled you like 9 because I was thinking it was just too "in your face" with the pinks :)

Oh, I love your close crops! The lighting in them is spectacular, especially in 3 (which also has crazy awesome crative cropping) and 4. 2 has really nice dark look and I love the coloring and crop in 1! The 4th far crop is super pretty too, looove the vibrant pinks and the slightly textured background :) lovely set!
starry_night: btvs: buffy summersstarry_night on January 28th, 2016 10:05 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm beyond thrilled you like them since your icons are always flawless! 3 is probably my fave from this set but it took me forever to get that crop how I wanted it since for some reason I *had* to use that cap, lol :D

I so love your far crops! The overall look is so pretty. I love the negative space and use of textures very much. ♥ The colourings in the close crop icons are exceptional, so very soft. :3
My favourite creations: #3, #4, #5, #7, #8, #9 and #10!

Such pretty cropping in 1, 3 and 5 in particular. Just really gorgeous. And the general lighting in especially 2 and 3 is gorgeous- love how the lighting gives the icon a soft glow. Your far icons are also so pretty- your use of the background is so pretty and I love how warm 6 feels and how much 9 glows. And the lighting in 11 is beautiful.

Thank you so much! I had a really hard time with these so I'm happy you like them :D

I'm so happy I stumbled onto your journal! I snagged so many icons from many posts, and looked at posts for fandoms I have no clue about because everything you make is so beautiful. I was so happy to discover a lone iZombie icon in one post! Thank you!
starry_nightstarry_night on January 28th, 2016 10:15 am (UTC)
Thank you so much and snag away! I'm always happy when people like my work enough to snag :)

I've only recently really gotten into iZombie but there will likely be more icons in the near future ;)

Lovely set! The dark blue colouring in 3 is stunning, I also really like the close crop in 1 and your use of light in 4 and the negative space in 6 and 8.
