DNA Mad Scientist in ten pictures.

While PK Tech Girl was the first episode I enjoyed, and TOBM was the first episode where I said, "Oh, I love that bit!", this episode made me realize I was in it til the end.

I know many of you love how bright the images in these picspams are. With "That Old Black Magic" I began with light and made them darker as they went along to reflect the nature of the episode, while this set is dark from beginning to end.

The brightness will be back, but I thought this was a good opportunity to play with mood.

I like this a lot, especially Zhaan’s eye and choices with characters out of focus.

I thought I'd commented on this, but apparently my browser ate it.

I love the first picture of Aeryn. The others are awesome too, but that one just jumped right out at me. Any chance there's an icon-sized version?

Thank you for the feedback!

I made two icons of that image - feel free to make your own as well :)

Thank you! I snagged the second one (with credit to you of course). :D

Yay, another one so soon!

I admit I'm one of the people who just loooove bright colors, but it doesn't mean that's the only type of graphic that can ever be pretty in my eyes, lol :D These darker ones work great too, and it's always lovely to see people try different things. Plus that this is the darkest episode this far, so the coloring fits nicely. ^^

My favorites are the two D'Argo's. I adore the crop on 3 and how 9 is full of feeling. 1 is also very powerful, and I love how mysterious 6 looks. I also love how you take something ugly without prejudice and make it pretty (5 and 7).

Wonderful picspam again! This was the first episode I loved, too. :)

Yay, another one so soon!

I accidentally did them out of order LOL But I would like to purposefully make them at a faster pace ;)

Thanks so much for the detailed feedback, I appreciate it :) I adore the crop and colors on 3, so I'm very happy it resonated with someone else.

From: [identity profile] the hint of purple in the first pic.

Zhaan looks so lovely yet there's that menace we get from her sometimes.

I love these picspams!

And, thanks for the Noranti icon! I'm a happy woman.

Thank you!

Zhaan is super scary there to me...I love when we can see her past darkness coming to the surface. It makes her so much more interesting.

So happy you like the Norantis! *hugs*

#3 can be defined only as "arresting". It's a beautiful, awesome cut, and your choice to use the door-grille as a frame for the scene is amazingly brilliant.

#6 is another of my favorites: there's a powerful hint of darkness there, with that upswept gaze that chills me to the bone.

WOW. Just WOW!!

Thank you Nymeria! Those two (and #1) are my favorites as well. I'm really pleased with how this set came out.

Oh wow, I want to go through and say which ones leapt out at me, but they are all so awesome. I'm going to go for 1,3 and 8 as my absolute faves, though.

Wow! Thanks!

Another great one, Arevhat!

I must agree with the others, they are all awesome but the ones that just jumped out and grabbed me straight away are 1, 3, 5 and 10.

Really great! Thanks!

Great choices, especially for capturing general creepiness of this episode. (I'm happy though you included smiley face :)))

Thank you, D! I do love the smiley face LOL I wanted to have a cap of John holding Aeryn when she collapses, all's the first moment that I really shipped them, he looks at her with such love and acceptance and is so not grossed just made me love him so much. But alas, it was too dark. So I went with the smiley to express the same sentiment :)

Loved all of them! Found myself really oddly drawn to 5 - it's gross and pretty all at once.

The dark colours work well for this episode, and like diarmi, glad you included the smiley.
