Icons - Sketched, sort of...
Trying something different here. These all started as photographic icons, but I played with them in Photoshop to try to create a sketched or painted look. I'd love comments... pro or con.

     

There are a couple of spoilers for Stolen Earth / Journey's End behind the cut.

Interesting! I like the ones of Gwen and Donna. The Rose/Doctor kiss looks nice as well.

Thanks. Those are 3 of my favorites.

These are just brilliant. Very artistic looking!

Thank you. I'm still trying to work out what works. It's pretty hit and miss right now, with a lot of miss...

I like this painterly look. :) Saved Donna, Gwen, Donna & Ten, and then Ten in the rain. Will credit with use.

I think the Gwen one is nice, but none of these are really my cup of tea. I think it's a very interesting idea, but I suppose I prefer good ole' fashioned photographic icons.
I hope you make more of these though, keep experimenting xD It's always nice to see something new, even if I don't really like it.

Thanks for commenting. I really do want to hear opinions, both positive and negative. Photographic icons will always be my "bread and butter", but it's fun to just play sometimes.

Nicely observed cropping, like very much the colouring scheme.

Thanks. Turns out one of the tricks to getting these techniques to work is to make the images fairly high key to start with. I may post some straight photographic high key images as well - I like the look.

Icons

These are lovely, I'm seriously impressed. Can I be cheeky and pinch a couple for personal use :> I will of course give mucho credit.

Re: Icons

Thanks. Be my guest and take as many as you want. That's what they're there for...

Really really interesting.
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 16th, 2008 07:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Um... that could be good or bad :-) BTW, I'll work on the request from your other message. May be a few days - RL and all.

Those are beautiful... You should make more... I am saving these to my memories, as I don't know exactly which ones I want :o)
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 16th, 2008 07:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I will continue to play around with these. Hopefully, I'll even get better at it :-)

These are gorgeous! I can't decide which ones I want to snag, but I'll definitely credit when I do!

Thanks. I'm still trying to figure out what works.
