20 icons - AtS/BtVS - ABOUT ME

Decided to enter the final round of 20inspirations! So this is pretty personal and pretty long but I'm overjoyed with the icons I made for this last round. :D Hope you enjoy and I don't bore you to tears.

            love strong passionate bright alone poet

Englishman in New York - Sting

icons by fav icon-makers and how they represent me

dreamer | special | in love | on a mission | unrelenting
traveller | rebel | queen | fighter | best friend
wicked | distrusting | damaged | alone | sacrificing

my fav icons of mine


And, finally, my icons for the last round of 20inspirations!


 01. "Do you think I ever hesitated when I wanted something? Life's too short. Believe me. I know. Four hundred years, and still too short." That quotes always strikes something inside me. Because we don't have 400 years. Nobody does. And there's so much to do. So much to see. So much to read and write and say. And there's not enough time. Life is too short.
02. "Inspired by your beauty-effulgent" This one is because I write poetry even if it too comes out bloody at times. And beauty is, in fact, the best inspiration.
03. I believe that sometimes the world burried good people under tons of darkness and we must always remember that we are, essentially, made of light.
04. This one is besically 'cause I can be a pain in the ass. :D
05. A crop of Spike's mouth and a text texture. The icon is simple because I think that so are words. People make them complicated when they don't know what they want or how to say what they want but words by themselves are very simple. I don't believe that the wisest people say very little. If we learned to use our words more often and more freely, the world would be better for it.
06. I'm a huge fan of the blood, guts and glory and sod all else philosophy.
07. “Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead.” I'm a very passionate person. To the point where when I'm really sad or angry, I do things I later regret but at the moment of it I just cannot control myself.
08&09&10. About a boy.
11&12&13. Spike's sacrifice is just such a huge thing in my book and there are about a hundred reasons why I do or want to relate to it. He does it for love and quite honestly I think there's nothing above love, it's the greatest force and reason that can exist. He does it for the world and in my life the thing I care most about is leaving a trace in the world, doing something for it, something real and beautiful. He goes down in a blaze of glory. I wanna die saving another, this is actually one of my dearest wishes. And-effulgent!
14. This one is just expressing a need of mine, apparently.
15. Never stop. Never back down. No matter what. It's the way Spike has lived his life, the way I intend to live my life.
16&17. This was getting too serious and overall I'm a very sunny person who smiles a lot and laughs just as much. So some queen C was in order.
18. As stated above, I believe love above all but I also believe that deep inside each person is lonely by nature. We are all alone even when we are together and this 'me' is the thing we must take very good care of.
19. I'm 19 years old, searching for MOST things. But I think that this doesn't change all that much with time. We are all in search our whole life. Google's popularity being a good example. :D And I think there's nothing wrong with constantly searching for something but the happiest are the people who at least find themselves.
20. "Every man is an island." You better know how to withstand all those tsunamis.

Mostly used Spike not only because he is my absolute favourite character in everything ever but also because he has 3 kinds of traits: ones I possess, ones I want to possess and ones I want my partner to posses. :)

Thank you so much and of course!! Happy you did. Enjoy! :)
great set!

Your text has grown by leaps and bounds since last we met. I adore the composition of 1. Her face doesn't actually blend into the larger image. There's the yellow line that you used to border her, and it works so wonderfully! I wanna try that sometime! The shiny quality of 2 really draws in the viewer's eye, and the text is absolutely perfect. 5 has amazing contrast, and the use of the text page on the left really gives the crop more depth and balance!
I KNOW! I totally blame raduation and prom and exam and yeah. :D

Thank you so much! At first I loved 1 then I started thinking it wasn't well composed but now I think I like it again. :D So happy you like 5, I really like going all simple on my icons. :D

These are stunning, especially the text use! *________* Oh and texture/light use too, it's particularly beautiful in 6, 8, 9, 10 and 13. My other favorites would be 1 and 19 (gorgeous colorings!). Also I love your explanations, very insightful :)
Thank you so much!! So happy you liked them and touched that you bothered with the explanations too. :D ♥
