LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [livejournal.com profile] library_of_sex)

For the latest round at [livejournal.com profile] 20inspirations, the mods decided to throw a strange curve...by having all participants complete a traditional 20in20 batch! We were provided with 10 interpretative themes as well as a category theme for a set of 5 icons (in this case, obscure crops) and then given free reign over the last 5 pieces, known as artist's choice icons. You might think that it would be harder to stick to themes rather than making whatever you want, but I enjoy having guidelines, so making the AC set tends to be the stranger part. Not really a big fan of my AC icons, and I'm a bit dismayed by the overwhelming recurrence of pinks and purples throughout this post. I don't know why I tend to settle on those hues when I'm coloring. but I'll certainly continue trying to improve in that area. I truly enjoyed working on the obscure crops cuz cropping has never been a strong suit of mine so I got to stretch myself to the limit there, and I'm rather pleased with that set!

I think it's sensible and fair to send this batch out to [livejournal.com profile] ionizable, a fellow maker whose hyperactivity amuses me to no end and whose icons have been blowing my mind over the last few months. Jen, I know we don't exactly know each other well yet, but that hasn't stopped us from sharing plenty of laughs and flailing over tiny 100x100 boxes together. I'm never around to comment much anymore, but I want you to know that whenever I see your work, I'm always thrilled and awed by your wacky compositions and your coloring, especially the wide range of blues you constantly achieve! <3

If any of you has thoughts or opinions on the stuff you see here, I'd gladly accept any feedback or concrit you can lend! As I said, crops aren't a particular strength of mine, so I feel that I hit the mark with my category set, but you may think otherwise, and I welcome your assessment. Also, any tips about how to break out of my odd pink/purple coloring prison would definitely be appreciated, too! :D

NOTE: When you snag something, please credit me and the comm, so people won't friend my personal journal when they're merely searching for my graphics. Many thanks!

I will never understand how outta all those people, anyone could think CB is the least attractive. You boggle my mind, Tash.

admittedly i could probably vote Matt or Andrew, but NEVER Jake or Zach. I'd vote JGL in a pinch, if i HAD too.

Stop admitting that and actually DO IT. Stop voting for CB. It gives me heartache. Almost literally.

but he's not going to get voted out anyway.
I will vote someone else tomorrow!

Well, your vote ends up being a non-vote then. Vote for your truest choice, so that there hopefully won't be a tie today. We've had ties every single day since this began. I'm glad so far, there are clear losers...even if I love both of them.

Nah, you don't have to. I'm glad you're voting honestly, babe. That's all one can ask for when hosting this game! ;)

I love Jake, but man, I used to think he was pretty fugly myself. He's certainly not conventionally handsome, IMO, so I can see why people would find him unattractive. I think he's fuckin' adorable, but that's come about over time and is influenced a lot by his awesome personality.

He really is. And he's a fantastic actor on top of that ♥

As much as I hate pretty people going, my vote has been pretty easy because I keep... voting... for the same... two. :P

I love them both, but I'm just being honest!

When Nadine was doing this, I just voted for Eva Green everyday until she left. It made my job so much easier!

Hahaha! I need to remember to find hilarious pix of Jake to link to if he's eliminated from the competition. I love his goofy pix so much!

I look forward to possible goofy pix! :D CONVINCE ME.

So sad to see Leighton Meester go. She was half the reason I watched Gossip Girl for as long as I did (the first season was good, but the second was a bit of a failure, and third... yeah).

I was trying to decide between Andrew and Jake, and I'm glad I wasn't the only one. BUT WHY NATALIE? WHYYYY?!

Date: 2011-04-20 10:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] library-of-sex.livejournal.com
Yup, she's half the reason I'm currently watching again. The other half is Penn Badgley. Dan/Blair has been my ship since I saw "Bad News Blair" years ago.

I had no idea Jake or Nat would be in danger at the halfway point. This whole game is full of surprises.

I love Matt! I think he's Hot - especially in the Bourne Series :D

Poor Leighton! I just watched her movie The Roommate :D

Always lovely to find another Matt fan around. He's a phenomenal actor!

Was that movie any good? A co-worker told me it was terrible!

From: [identity profile] hamarakissa.livejournal.com
It wasn't that great at all. Could've been so much better - but that's how it is these days :( It was interesting seeing her in such a different role though :)

I need to see's Matt's movie Hereafter. Is that what it's called?

My little sis saw Herafter and said it was awful! I'm certain was wonderful in it though.
