Icon Battle  

My first icon battle, and I am delighted to have done this with winterlillies  as I love her work  :-) *she's not bad either ;-) *
We each chose 10 caps and set 7 themes: texture, colour, large text, tiny text, textless, B&W and blended, leaving 13 to be artists choice.

The first ten caps are mine, followed by winterlillies

I'm so telling the truth when I say yours put mine to shame! I love your coloring and texture use and make mine look so dull and boring. I love love love what you did with the Casanova one! I also love the coloring in the Eowyn icon and the overall composition of it as well as the coloring in Girl With a Pearl Earring and of course Titanic.

Great use of coloring in both the Jane Eyre one (I honestly didn't think that one would be a hard one to icon, but I was proven wrong) and Sleepy Hollow! I love the negative space use in the Alexander, Robin Hood, P&P 05. Am totally loving what you did with P&P 1940-that one gave me the most fits! All of your alternates are great too!

The funny thing is I almost went the same crop you did for The Buccaneers! That would have been fun had I stuck with it. LOL! One day I shall send over a little fly who will come back and tell me all your secrets to making icons, but then I'm sure I'd still be on a much lower scale than you.

Honestly what I've said is nothing compared to how great yours really are because I love your entire set of 20 and alternates too. :) I'm so happy to have done this with you and when you'd like to give it another go just say so. :)

Sorry, I have had my head in too many places, and completely forgot to reply to the comments *headdesk*

awwwwww - you really are such a lovely person. And you down your own icons too much!! *goes off to go find my frying pan*.....

OK..... I have a pan and know how to use it *lifts one eyebrow*

I chuckled when I saw how we both tackled 'Eowen'. How I wish you had stuck with the same crop for the Buccaneers also LOL. It is great to see how you approached the same shots, and I love the results of yours (as you well know by now)

Doing this with you was such great fun, and I know it really made me think about each icon carefully. when I have some spare time ahead, I will be tapping on your LJ entries to let you know :-)

BTW - I have snaffled several of them :-) 21, 30 and 32 (Eowen, the duchess and GWAPE)

KF you know you`re a genius :D What a great selection of caps and pretty icons! :D 1,6,7,11,12,16,17,18 and 20 (actually almost all lol) are gorgeous! I`m saving 11 and 17 for now !

WOW!!! Christmas morning, no kidding! It's present-time for me to get to admire all these pretties!!! ;-D

Now, where to begin...

My faves: #s. 1 (so delicate and serene), 2 (would never have thought about doing this cap in B&W but you did it splendidly!), 3 (GORGEOUS -- I adore that shot, and you've captured the ambiance perfectly), 6 (coloring!), 8 (coloring and crop), 10 (prettyyyy), 12 (GREAT text usage -- I adore how you staggered the G!), 14 (really unique texture usage, and it looks so real and original to the cap!!!), 16 (great placement on the two figures), 17 (classic KF! ;-P ), 19 (PERFECT blending here on a cap I had tons of trouble working with myself so I know how finicky it is. ;-P Great job! I'll be nomming this one sometime soon...), 20 (SO FRIGGIN' CUTE!).

As for the alternates, I'll be saving #49. ;-)

I love how subtly yet powerfully you wield your textures! They're there and yet they're not, you know what I mean? ;-)

Wonderful wonderful job on all these! :-D
kiteflier: B&W marie antoinettekf_creations on August 24th, 2010 09:40 pm (UTC)
hehehe - Christmas morning for us both indeed :-)

Thank you for your really lovely touching words - as ever. classic KF indeed - that made me chuckle for sure hehe

Thank you *hugs*

Amazing cropping & colouring from both of you, equally as good in my eyes. These are a real inspiration and thanks for also posting the original image so we can see what you did with it. Brilliant work.
kiteflier: cold mountainkf_creations on August 24th, 2010 09:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I am glad the showing the screencap works for you, as I know I don't appreciate sometimes how different something is from the original shot. Good to see you Ali *hugs*

These are beautiful! You both did a lovely job, and while I'm really liking waterlilles coloring especially, her icons just didn't speak to me the same way yours did, so I ended up saving 1, 2, 3, 15, 16, and 43-47. Who is the girl in the Robin Hood (#15) icon? I've been needing an icon of a girl on a horse, just like that, for one of my stories, so it will be perfect for that.

That is Cate Blanchett, playing Maid Marian I believe :-) I am glad that that icon can come in useful for you :-)

I really enjoyed y'all's icon battle. Such lovely results from both of you.

I was wondering how you go about doing an icon battle. :D
