fifteen boxes of color plus one  
Don't look now, but I think this is an icon post! Crazy, right? (lover_of_narnia, you can stop crossing those fingers now) I feel as though I've forgotten how to make icons, and I don't mean that in a "these are junk" way, cause if I thought they were I wouldn't put them on the internet (that said, I'm not quite happy with all of them. Dear favorite picture of Colin, why will you never work the way I want you to?). I just haven't made icons in so long that I've forgotten the way I make them, so these sort of feel like me playing at someone else's style. I did try a few in that vivid vibrant style that seems to be "in," and then felt like I couldn't get out of it. I messed around with textures a bunch to get different lighting effects, and sometimes things just ~happened~ and I left them that way. Also some of these are reaaaaalllly old (like I made them in March and forgot they existed), so that's also weird. Anyhow, I should quit procrastinating and go back to studying German, so without further ado!

Ooh, very nice! :) My favourites are 001, 006, 013, and 015. Though, I'm thinking some of the Merlin icons are from Series 4?

Thank you! :)
Oops, yes! #4-5 are, and #4 has kind of a big spoiler if you haven't seen S4 yet. Sorry! I didn't even think to put a warning. *sheepish*

Ah, okay. :) Hmm, yeah, I haven't seen Series 4 yet (been too busy with school again!), but I think I accidentally got spoilered for that already by some friends who have seen it (story of my life it seems), so no harm done here. :)

Ah, I see. Sorry to hear that you were already spoilered (but I guess I'm kinda glad that I didn't do it with my carelessness?)! It's a really good series, whenever you do get around to watching it. :)

Thanks. :) Yeah, I'd like to see it but the timing... I'll probably watch it when it comes out on DVD. Or, more likely, whenever it starts instant-streaming on Netflix. :P ;)

*stops crossing her fingers and hops up and down* Lovely, lovely! :D

It's so nice to see some Merlin graphics from you again. <3 I'll never get over how absolutely gorgeous that icon of Merlin, when he is laughing, that you made is.

#1 is so pretty. I love how simple it is, and negative space is one of my very favorite styles. #3 is amazing. You do a wonderful job with the blending, and it's so creative! The colors are also so nice! #4 - #8 are all beautiful! And #16, is also great!

Have a lovely weekend!

Thank you!! :) (though, if you mean this icon that I'm using now, I didn't make it. talipuu did, and she makes some pretty beautiful stuff, if you want to check it out)

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, dear! Have a lovely week yourself! :)
