Wow!! You're improving by leaps and bounds every time you post! I love Favorite Scene. The colors are beautiful (and the crop too, of course, which you've always been good at). The category set is beautiful...very crisp, and I love the moving scene you chose to portray. Alt #5 is wonderful...Zhaan in it almost reminds me of the Virgin Mary, so serene in the face of everything that is happening to her.

Thank you so much! Favorite scene is my favorite too; I was REALLY pleased with how well it turned out.

I agree about Zhaan too...she strikes me as such a saint in her last few the others comfort and solace when it should be the other way around.

Gorgeous! I'm with Zardi in loving Favorite Scene. I also like your choices for the b/w ones.

Great work! Your choice for “smile” is excellent, “blue” works well with the color as well with the mood, so I like that it has a non-literal component. Same goes for “BFF” that’s a layered meaning. Alternate ending is sweet ;) “No space” has some sort of glow to it, it’s one of my favorites.

#2 of Memories in B&W catches my eye especially, because of how Zhaan’s fingers correspond with the ribs on Chiana’s top. You can only really see it in b&w, so good choice.

#1 of Artist choice is probably my favorite of that part. I love Jool’s expression on #5, and #4 is great too.

Good job with alternates as well, the shading on #1 looks really interesting. You did a great job on the coloring/adjusting on all of them :)

Thanks so much! I can't believe how hard it was to find a "smile" in these episodes...this is right before she dies and is bittersweet, but I think the coloring helped brighten the mood.

I liked highlighting Zhaan's hands in the Memories section.

Alternate #1 is several different textures laid on top of each other (all desaturated) and then given a "pewter" finish. I agree though, it does look like pencil!

Very impressive indeed :)

I kind of want to get into a 20in20 challenge myself, but am not sure that I'd keep it up.

Thank you! You should give it a took longer than I anticipated but I think it's because it was a)my first time and b)I chose an episode I wasn't overly familiar with, hoping that would make it more interesting. Next time I'm going with one I have committed to memory ;)

LOL, I've got SG1 playing and *as I'm typing this* your icon and the Baal on my tv are one and the same ;) I decided to get all of his episodes and watch them in order.

I've had a look for SG ones, but there's none currently running. I'll have a look for more general comms, maybe a gen sci fi one. Or maybe I'll just challenge myself.

Hee! No idea how I managed that, but it's funny *g*

Watching in order is a good idea, because there is a character arc. It's not as developed as, say, Crais', but he becomes more personable, more likeable. I'm dying to know what you think of him :D

Yeah, I've thought of snurching some theme sets from other places for a Chi set, but keep getting distracted. I'm going to try my hand at some Eat Me icons in honor of Halloween, but really should be writing and finishing up my WIP before NaNo...but icons are so shiny and fun...

I've now seen his first 4 appearances (grabbing more this weekend) and have already come to the conclusion that he is, as you said in a post i was responding to before I remembered this one, "sex on legs".

I'm still not warming to SG1 in general (to be honest, I find it teeth-grindingly dull) but the instant Baal appears on screen he captivates me. Even when he was munching on a lizard, I was like yum He's got an undeniable magnetism and since he's opposite the characters I find really boring, I'm like yay! Go evil! ;)

I signed up for [ profile] stargateland instead, which is proving to be rather fun. There's a fanmix challenge that I'm thinking of playing with. I may or may not manage the 'shipper manifesto - I don't think I'm in a meta sort of mood, LOL.

I'm going to try and get my latest WIP done before NaNo. I have what was supposed to be a relatively short fic that's rapidly turning into a novella *sighs at Baal* Could we stick to the plan just once? Is that really so much to ask? (It is, apparently)

Talking of, he really is fun, isn't he? And yes, absolutely captivating. As for being sexy... yeah, just a bit *fans self* (I've no idea what that was about, but I'm not overly bothered about explanations strangely enough)

That picture is...I'm dead. You've killed me.

I'm looking forward to reading the novella ;) I know you've got other Baal fics I haven't read yet; I wanted to watch more eppies first but may cave LOL.

Aw, I'm sorry for killing you so early in the day *grins*

The fics will be there when you're done watching, though there's nothing particularly spoilery as far as I remember. Just crack and angsty 'shippiness (I know, I'm pathetic).

Thanks so much!

I actually didn't crop much LOL I was surprised at how...focused the cap already was ;)

Wow, awesome icons! LOVE Coloring, it's so bright and saturated, and also Favorite Scene (crop is beautiful), Alternate Ending, Hell (love the big contrast) and Page 3. Category set and Alt5 are lovely too.

Wow, this is an old post! Thank you for the feedback; I keep meaning to redo some of these since my aspect ratio was off on the caps and it's kind of noticeable in some of the icons. I'm glad you like them!

I've been going through old farscape_20in20 entries just to celebrate the new round =D I'm so happy the comm's back!

There's a new round? Must check, I've been away and LJ piles up so quickly.

I'm working on an Aeryn character round right now, she is harder than I thought! And I keep getting distracted by Chiana caps.

Yes! It's a season round. I picked 3 because I've grown to love it the most, even though 2 and 4 were my initial favorites.

There's also voting for the previous entries and since they've sort of piled up, the pace will be pretty tight I think :P
