[iconbattle] IN THE FLEEEESH  
eng OH GOOD LORD LOOK AT ALL THE DUST. between being busy as hell and losing all inspiration and being sucked into a new shiny fandom AND WRITING! MAN I HAVENT WRITTEN IN AGES I'm not really iconning much. BUT, I had a battle pending with shameless666 & julie_izumi about IN THE FLESH. AND LOOKIE. WE ARE DONE (this was supposed to be done before, ITS ALL MY FAULT!). AND ITS SO AMAZING AND IM SO HAPPY THEY LET ME DO THIS WITH THEM. THANK YOU.

Anyway, I collected some random names/things/quotes/etc related to the series, and we used those names to pick 3 caps & 2 themes each! So there's a totaly of 9 caps & 6 themes :D This was really fun and very challenging. ITF caps are not easy, but it was still a blast, and I'm really happy with the results because you guys are awesome and \o/!

Anyway, I'll update the posts links once they have their posts up, so you can go gush them :DDD


esp. toy muy lazy pa explicar todo, pero hicimos battle, y aquí hay icons de tres personas. y cuantos más icons de itf haya en el mundo, más feliz seré :DDD

OMG, where do I start? :D I love, love, love that we have done this! So many beautiful icons came up from it! Definitely saving some for my inspirataional folder!

nyaza - I'm in awe of your pastel coloring and your use of text and your compositon (okay, I should have said everything and spared some time to stare at the beautiful icons :D).
I love the composition on #1 and how the background colors match with her outfit. The Simon icon is absolutely stunning, the coloring is so soft and so natural, but in the same time it really pops out, the text is also amazing. Then we go to "Shit is that your dad" icon. I could have never fit SO MANY TEXT in an icon and make it look PERFECT. I love how some of the words are outlined with different colors, it really adds so much to the icon. The coloring is perfect as well. And then that Jem icon. Are you trying to kill me? I don't even have words to describe how ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY AMAZING it is. This is the cap I had most trouble with and in the end didn't like the result at all. But you mastered it - cropping, coloring, text, absolutely FLAWLESS icon, which is definitely going in my userpics asap. Great, now I don't know how to continue ... but I really love the complex composition icon and also the text one.

julie_izumi - I love the coloring on #1, the greens and magentas work really good together. And I love, love the composition on "rabid". The texture choice is really great and fits perfectly with the muted colors. The crop on Jem's icon (#27) is AWESOME! The soft natural coloring is also GREAT and I love the shadows/lighting in the icon. I really like the painting on the "vibrant coloring" icon, both on the background and her hair, and pink and cyan are a magical combination. And let's go to the FABOLOUS "text" icon, which is definitely my favourite of yours. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT! The contrast between the muted/b&w characters and the colorful green background is EXCELLENT and the typography is GREAT. Bonus points for the Hozier's lyrics.

AMAZING JOB, GUYS! =)

Im so so very sorry I took longer than expected, but I'm so glad we didi it, and so happy you two joined me, becasue <33333333!!!

And AWWW YOU ARE SO SWEET! I'm so glad you like #1 because that was one of the hardest ones to make. and remake. and remake. LOL. And I'm so glad you liked the Jem one, I just realized I forgot to post the alt version of it (just text on a different place tho XD). But <3333333

*goes to comment on your post* \o/

it's always better late than never, and idk why but I tend to icon very slowly when I'm doing icon for battles, I end up not liking any of them and start over :D

and how could I not like it, it's absolutely amazing ♥ favourite character + red + text is a winning combination! <3
[c]nyaza on July 8th, 2015 08:31 pm (UTC)
jajaj, yes. I'm just ot been in the mood lately? I'm writing again after YEARS of barely doing it, so opening up photoshop was like... sch a dreading experience, but in the end, it was still nice to go back to it and i enjoyed it a lot <3


Awwww <3

oh, I tried writing at some point, but it just didn't work out. I was really in the mood, but the lack of time + trying to write on another language - it turned out that I really have to expand my vocabulary, before doing that, or it will be plain boring :D
[c]nyaza on July 8th, 2015 08:50 pm (UTC)
Oh, well, I mostly write in spanish tbh~(although i'm writing a bit mroe in english now, because i need to fill in the emptiness of my very rarepair lack of fic). so yeah, i don't feel comfortable writing in english, but... i didn't realize how much i missed it until i actually managed to write again <3

So pretty! Decí que ya ni uso el LJ, pero te quedaron preciosos, sobre todo el 1º de Jem, el de Siren y el RickRen.
[c]: utopianyaza on July 8th, 2015 08:30 pm (UTC)

GRACIAS <3

Thank you so much for doing this battle! It was so much fun and inspiring! :D

I love what you did with the caps! My fav are your 3rd Jem icon, perfect composition and coloring, the 2nd one has an interesting coloring, it looks like a painting! I also really love your texture work on "optimist with..." and the "shit is that your dad" is such an emotional icon with its muted colors and that text! Your faceless one is also amazing, I love the color combination and the text use!
But really I love them all, you did a fantastic job!
[c]: in the flesh [c]nyaza on July 9th, 2015 02:27 pm (UTC)
It was sucha pleasure <3!

Glad you like it! It was one of the first I did and didn't completely hate so~~ LOL And I kind of did paint over the second Jem one tee. So glad you like the faceless one because I was so unsure about it!

THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS WITH ME <3!
