So I have been frantically trying to get these done in between my icon battle with [livejournal.com profile] vampire_sessah and capping Season 1 of Farscape and work being gonzo. Not leaving myself a lot of time and I am so knackered I just can't even comment. I know I am being a bad LJ friend and once Christmas is over I shall be back to my normal gregarious self!

So, Round 12 at [livejournal.com profile] farscape_20in20 was a character round and I chose Jool. Just to push myself out of my normal boundries. I have never iconned Jool so I am not so familiar with her caps and so on. That said, I REALLY enjoyed making these and once I started in earnest they came really easily. For some reason, for me, she just warrants a lovely center crop so there isn't much in the way of expirements with regard to composition but the colouring of her caps was so. much. fun!

I LOVE making things my bitch. Job done!

yeah, Jool was never my fav character, I don't think she was a lot of peoples fav which is why she only lasted one season!

I really like all the Category ones in particular. Very pretty coloring on everything.

Also I just realized I don't have any Jool icons uploaded, so I'm definitely saving at least one of these!

It was so much fun colouring these caps which is weird because usually i obsess over every colour change. LOL on these I just slapped textures on left right and center. It was great! I'm gonna do it more often.

Yay for Todd. I had to use Todd. He's my fav non-Farscape alien. i was going to do some text with bad hair day/good hair day but liked it as it. Plus I am rubbish at text!

Arghhh! I am sorry I am being such a slowcoach with the battle. It's probably going to be Saturday before I get finished.

Awesomeness!
Faves = Fashion, Crossover, Faceless, Off Centre, Fake BG, OOC, Recycle, Relationships 1,3,4 AC3 and 5.
I agree that she makes for lovely centre crops.
Well done :)

These are fantastic! I love the good old center crop so I have no problem with that aspect of the set (lol, I overuse teh center crop myself). And I also agree that coloring Jool is awesome, her natural colors are so vibrant. You really made that work, looove the bright yellows and reds and oranges everywhere in the set. And also great use of textures again!

I snagged Smile, Looking Up, Fake Background and AC5 which are my favorites. (No, I couldn't choose which one I wanted the most just yet. I'll have to decide in a few days cause I can't have too many icons of just one character and my icon space is running scarce again! D:) Love the composition in Smile and the pic choice. Its colors also rule and the fact that you chose just the perfectly fitting orange for the frame. Looking Up has a gorgeous texturized background and it's just so pretty and soft overall. There's a very high likelihood that I'll end up using at least that one. Fake Background again has a great background and the colors match so wonderfully, plus it's really funny and I think everyone needs a screaming Jool icon. :p And AC5 is so lovely with the colors and again the blending with the new background is amazing.

I also really love Crossover, it's too funny and love the original composition. Really creative. Off Center is another really ovely one, love the crop and how clear the pic is. I loooove OOC, love the soft effect and coloring.

Your category is awesome too, I love the relationships you chose and especially the fact that there's two Chiana's. Aaw. My faves are #1, #3 and #4. 1 has a really cool crop and coloring, LOOOVE the bold colors in 3, and the warmth and CUTENESS ATTACK in #4.

I also really like all the ACs. There's something very interesting about #3, and I love the background work in #1.

Oh, and capping Farscape is a really good reason for being more quiet at LJ. ^^ Can't wait for more of the caps!

These are just beautiful! Absolutely amazing for your first time icconning Jool, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. I think the center crop works so well with her because she has all of that glorious hair, and a closer crop can sometimes look odd with the high forehead.

I love Smile...it's just so happy and bright and interesting. Great choice for Fashion and I really love the blue of Texture! I don't recognize Crossover but like the concept. Faceless is so vivid, and I like what you did with the crop.

All the colors in the next 15 look incredible on my screen. Very rich and pure. Off-Center is *adorable* and I love the kind of blurred effect on Looking Up. Fake Background and OOC blend so well and Recycle is making me smile for some reason ;)

Your Categories and ACs are *excellent*! I never thought I'd have anything good to say about the moment in Cat 1, but that's a damn good icon ;) The crops and colors on 2 and 3 are just *wow*...think I might have to snurch them. Along with AC 1. Beautiful.

I tried to make an icon out of AC 3 once and couldn't. It was an utter failure and yours is beautiful. And AC 5 is dreamy :)

These are just stunning! I think I'm one of the few who ADORES Jool, so it's super awesome to see such a fantastic set featuring her. Smile, Faceless, Off Center, Looking Up, Fake Background, and Recycle are just stunning. I love the way you use texture, and your colorings are perfect. I love every single one from Category, especially #3 & #4 - such amazing crops! And AC #1, 3, & 5 are gorgeously dramatic. Definitely snagging a few of these!
