Yay! Thank you so much, you guys, for participating! I'm sorry for the delay in getting this up, in addition to a bit of cat herding I was away for a week. But yay!

waaywardson, I really like the grunginess you have going on in your set! I especially like the vintagey feel of 12 and 15 :)

justmyb0nes your set is fantastic :D I love how you chose just one fandom and ran away with it, and combining your two heroes in 22 (loyalty!) is just perfect! I absolutely love the colors of 25 as well, coupled with the cap, it really is very "Kirk" :D

rebel, I was also thinking of iconning Aragorn! He was actually the first character I thought of doing, before I told myself I was going to try and icon folks nobody else would lol. Your coloring and elegance is amazing as always, I particularly love 32 and 26!

gribouille, I love the crops you did for your set! I love 44 most especially, though I've always had a soft spot for Sayuri ♥

mark_pierre, bless you for iconning Sorsha! I squealed when I saw you had iconned Willow, that is one of my most memorable favorite movies :) I like 47 and 53 a lot!

neversleeps, I absolutely love your Xena icons, that's one more TV show I have really lovely memories of! Your coloring and soft crispness is hands-down amazing as always, I am in awe. I especially love 58 and 60!

THANK YOU ALL ♥

P.S. If you didn't include the characters you are a patron for and I am not into the fandom I've left the hover titles as the fandom. Feel free to provide/correct me if you want!
Thank you so much, doll! ♥

Oh man, these are all spectacular! Everyone did a wonderful job championing their heroes!
In light of how many stunning icons there are, two favorites from each maker are totally necessary:


angelamaria, your text and use of silhouettes were both on fire in this set. These two represent the best of both worlds.


waaywardson, I love that you went the extra gritty mile in your set. The dark side of heroism, haha!


justmyb0nes, your stuff always gives me life, and you + negative space is a positively breath taking combination as usual. <3


rebel, girl, your coloring is stellar as per usual. I had a difficult time just choosing two! The muted coloring/light use in these two is pretty miraculous though. ;D


gribouille, your cropping is pretty wonderful in all of these, and I am loving your focus on mouths. Very interesting!


mark_pierre, I love how bright your set is. You've really done well representing the whole hero= hope vibe, I think. My second favorite of yours is definitely a stand out with coloring/texture use!


& neversleeps proving, as always, why you are my icon idol. Look at all the flawlessly executed action shots! The text! The coloring! I love everything! ♥
Thank you! ♥ I did enjoy working on both for my icons :)
Thank you so much, as always, lovely! ♥
thznk you so much hon, you're a treasure <333333333
Thank you so much! ♥
i'm addicted to grittiness ! haha
thanks :)
OH WOW, HOLY SHIT, PRETTIES ALL AROUND. :DDD
Thank you, and yes, so many lovely icons from my fellow battle mates! :D
Oh my goodness, I am so stoked to see what everyone else came up with and everything is so wonderful and gorgeous! Nice job, everyone!

My favorites:
angelamaria:

1. Wow, super nice blending and text! I love the creamy color as well :)
2. I love the composition and text of this icon SO MUCH!
3. I really dig how vibrant and soft this one is :)

gribouille:

1. Love the crop and color and contrast!
2. Damn, the cropping/composition and coloring on this icon are really great!
3. I really love the composition of this icon!

justmyb0nes:

1. Oh my, this icon is pretty perfect! I wish I was into Star Trek (I've been meaning to get into it) as I'd use this in a heartbeat :)
2. Flawless texture/light blob use. Again, I wish I could use this!
3. The coloring here is really lovely!

mark_pierre:

1. Aw yeah someone else picked the flawless Brienne! Really nice blending here!
2. This is my favorite cap of Brienne because I feel like it really captures and sums up her character very nicely and you made it even better!
3. I really love this cap as well and really dig your yellowish/green coloring here :)

neversleeps:

1. The composition and lighting and coloring here are flawless!
2. The coloring of this icon.. how? It is so perfectly vibrant and lovely!
3. I really love the coloring and text on this icon and the softness!

waaywardson:

1. Aw, this icon is so cute and I love the lighting!
2. The texture use in this icon is superb and I love the tinge of purple!
3. The grainy/grungeyness and coloring is spot on here!
Thank you! :D
Thank you! :D I had a lot of fun working on those icons ♥
thank you!!
Very pretty!
Thank you, my battle mates did a great job! :)
This post is made of win!!! It was stressing but it worthes it!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATS EVERYONE!!!!!!!
(note: awesome coding is awesome)

YAAAAAARGH

Just mimicking Charles in your gif ;) I love that scene lol.

Thank you! :D And yes CONGRATS TO EVERYONE \o/

(I didn't quite think topical themes were going to be difficult, but it was after limiting it to just a few subjects! Lol)
This is great, guys!

So favorites by everyone:

angelamaria

I love the text, the silhouette use, and the coloring.

waaywardson

I love the grungy muted look in all of these.

justmyb0nes

I love your use of negative space, especially in these three.

rebel

I love your coloring on the entire set, but especially these,

gribouille

Lovely creative cropping!

mark_pierre

I like the blend idea in the first, and love the coloring in the other two.
Thank you! Especially for the second, I really wanted to use the cap the silhouette is from but it's so splotchy and mid-motion that it just wouldn't work for me haha.
