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!
