|I made some icons for challenges and especially focused on BatB and Castle. And If you look closely, I obviously found out about the 'Topaz Labs' tool. ;)|
|Icons made for movie_stillness (I miss this community!), 30 icons|
|Same as January. For 'moviefilmstills', I made the Captain America icon which is still one of my favorites. By my standards, a rather complex icon. In this case I draw my inspiration from one of the example icons, the fourth one. - It's all about inspiration!|
|Icons made for moviefilmstills, 30 icons|
|I obviously went to see Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (and not just once). Just wanted to pay tribute and created this icon. And tried my hand at blending! -- April... zzzZZZzzzz|
|After having such an icon-wise successful April I decided to apply at '20inspirations'; got accepted and made 20 icons! With the themes provided I tried to create and apply a different style (coloring, cropping, composition) for each icon. Worked out fifty-fifty.|
|Icons made for 20inspirations, 20 icons - Kate Beckett (Castle)|
|I was obviously picking up pace! Another 20 icons! Another round over at '20inspirations'. The pass-it-on-challenge was quite- challenging. But I liked it a lot and it reconfirmed that Lost is one of the most beautiful shows 'to color'. So I mainly concentrated on the cropping and coloring.|

|With the left icon it was one of these days where you want to throw down everything because half way through all you see in PS is this odd-looking 100x100px-sth. - But, follow through! Textures and coloring and shapes make the impossible possible!|
|August... zzzZZZzzzz -- In September, I made my current userpic and one of my favorite icons. I like the painted, pencil-y look of it. (Also, the hour of birth for the 'drop-shaped' icons.)|
|I saw a post about paintings created by Ivan Aivazovsky (so beautiful!). So I clearly had to icon somebody with a ship! Captain Hook was the obvious choice.|
|Icons made for ouat_elite|
|Thanks to ouat_elite, I at least managed to create one icon in November. Ch 54: Close Crop. Not my speciality, especially since I always walk the thin line between too sharp/too blurry.|
|Four icons! But only thanks to the new comm comics_ic (finally!) and me discovering TVD.|
As I said, I'm still very focused on cropping and coloring. Slowly but surely I try to get more into complex compositions and working with text.
So, here's to a successful year 2014, with lots of creativity and motivation, and lots of icon community challenges!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!
