Flam, I just came in here and saw those six at the top of the page and my breath got taken away. That coloring is absolutely beautiful. I love the negative space and the use of textures and lighting. Wonderful! Keep it up! Can you do a tutorial on number 6? Please?

Great work, everyone! :D
Page 83: Ithilwen: Wow - I really love all of yours, they're really creative and you picked beautiful pictures! I think my favorites are 6, 7 and 8, and I love the mistiness in 5 and 6. And of course, 3 is hilarious. :D
Kira: Great job - those first three are really unique and I don't think I've seen anything like them before. And I just love the 4th - so magical! :ymapplause:
Adeona: Without exception, my favorite is 7 - but I really love 2-4 - that's such a cool picture - oh, and thanks for the heads ups about who made those ones. :)
Page 84, flambeau: I'm naturally attracted to your post, because of all that beautiful blue - you did an excellent job! :ymapplause: :ymapplause: The 5th is my favorite, it's so magical!
campgirl: Every.one.of.your.avatars.are.perfect. Seriously, I'm stunned. I don't know how it would be possible to pick a favorite, the 1st one has to be the most beautiful Lilliandil avatar I've ever seen, the 2 and 3 one's are so beautiful - Georgie looks stunning and really mature!! And of course all the Ben Barnes one's are amazing, 6, 7 and 8 are my favorite's! :D You did an amazing job!! :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

Thank you all for the comments on my previous batch of icons! :D I really appreciate them!

sweeet wrote:Can you do a tutorial on number 6? Please?

I'm honestly not sure if I can. I haven't attempted to recreate it yet because I'm really not certain of what coloring I used, but I'll give it a go and see if I can get it close.

Girly, *gazes in delight* #6 is gorgeous!!!!! I would really really really love a tutorial if you possibly could do one. ;;) #5 is awesome as well!

Okay... so I was bored one afternoon, and bemoaning the fact that I don't have a livejournal and can't enter 20in20 icontests, when Becca brilliantly suggested that I go ahead and make a set of graphics using the latest Narnia icontest themes for fun. So I took her up on it, chose Caspian as my subject since I rarely make graphics of him from PC, and here's what I came up with! :) I hope they look okay... I went a little out of my comfort zone with some of them, but I think I like them.

Image Image Image Image Image
(Very Close Crop, Black & White, Layer, Looking Down, Tired)
Image Image Image Image Image
(Day, Favorite Moment, Quote, Sinister, Smile)
Image Image Image Image Image
(Category - Same Image)
Image Image Image Image Image
(Artist's Choice)

Alternates and rejects coming in my next post. ;)

Hey y'all! :D I think it's about time I returned to this thread. I've been absent for far to long; letting my icon piles build up. Thank you for all your comments on my last batch! They are much appreciated.

Brief comments for page 83:

NAH, Lovely! I'm finding myself adoring the coloring on #6. The cropping on the rest is well done.
Adeona (first post) I saw those on LJ! They are fantastic! The artists were very creative with their textures. (second post) These are quite nice! I like 1 and 7 best. 7 especially, though, with it's cropping. :)
flam, Gorgeous. As they never fail to be. :) The croppings are very nicely handled on these. I'm really, really liking them. Not to mention your ravishing coloring. My favorites are: 1, 2, 3, and 4. #4's coloring is especially vivid!
Ithy, Very nice. I like the soft feel to them all. I like 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 the best.
Kira Pretty! Indeed! 4 is especially nice. I love the coloring.

Comments for this page:

flam, (first post) It's so very nice to see you posting so often! :ymhug: Your icons in this batch are as fantastic as ever! I'm adoring the negative space! Definitely lovely! And your coloring is as always breath-taking. My favorites are: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. (second post) :-o *sputters* :-o You never cease to ever amaze me. And I think it's beyond awesome that you did the 20in20! :D I'm SO flattered, that you did the themes I posted. :D I get to see the themes I posted made into icons by the best! My favorites are: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. :D They are fantastic; creative and wonderfully colored. :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

Icons to come!

Oh heavens I haven't been in this thread in forever!

I've been looking through the last page and the level of sheer professional quality you guys keep bringing to the forefront on this thread is astounding! :-o

I have a small batch... I hope y'all like 'em, it's not much and I wish I could comment on everybodies, but that would fill up about two pages of the thread :P

No time for individual comments, but fab job y'all!!! :ymapplause: Everything looks stunning! Thank you for the comments!

flammie, Thanks so much!! I really loved the way #6 turned out.... I believe what I did was: Becca's 9th tutorial (the Caspian one; I left out 2 of the screen layers in the first step) and then I used the textures in your 102nd tutorial. Maybe with some added Hue-Sat or Brightness-Contrast, I'm not exactly sure. And here's the picture I used. :) You're icons are.... gorgeous! I love them! My favorites are #3, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, and 20. That last row is great. Awesome job!! :D

Well camp starts Sunday, so I probably won't be on much at all. :( I'll try to keep an eye on y'all though, make sure y'all are behaving (ha, yeah right!). ;)

Texture on 6 by hyaline12. Please don't use number 3 while I'm using it.

This thread has been going too slowly, lately; but what is here, is stunning!!!!! :D
Flambeau: I love how you did all those Caspian one's; that must have been a really cool challenge! I have to say, the "Artist's Choice" one's were all my favorite; you have very good taste! I especially like 4, 6 and 10, and the coloring in 17 and 19 is just stunning!! :ymapplause: Excellent job!!
violetfirecrazed: Lovely to see you posting in here. As you may possibly be able to tell, I am the HUGEST fan of your graphics, and I am not disappointed with this post! :D I LOVE the haziness and colors, and the vintage feel that all of yours have, it's really cool and pretty! Favorite's are 3, 4, 6 and 7.
Wunderkind_Lucy: Few, but beautiful. :) The soft colors in 2 make it really lovely, and 3 is just really cool! :ymapplause:
narnian_at_heart: Oh, goodness, I love all your Susan one's; they're all so perfect! I like 1, 3, 4, and 5 the best.
dotk: Wow. AMAZING! ;) 3 is my very favorite, it's just so cool! I love how it's like half b&w, but with hints of color. STUNNING color and vintage feel on four, that's such a pretty picture. I also adore 7, 8 and 9.
