Category: Art Movement: Color Field Painting
"Color field painting marks a major development in abstract painting, since it was the first style to resolutely avoid the suggestion of a form or mass standing out against a background. Instead, figure and ground are one, and the space of the picture, conceived as a field, seems to spread out beyond the edges of the canvas."

Love your sets! I like that in the second one, you made cat1 and cat5 look different even with the same crop and the same cut-out. The texture is different and adding the text was a nice touch. I also like hairporn, guess who, first, looking up and ac 1-5..gorgeous coloring and light.

From the first set, I really love eyes, lost, cat1-5 and all the ac ones.

I haven't even started one set and you've finished two gorgeous ones? Awesome!

First the OMWF ones, my favorites are big text, eyes (love the desaturated colors and the crop - PERFECT image for the theme) and faceless (love the ironic contrast with the eyes icon and again, perfect crop, I know exactly what moment it is, and there is something about the tension in Dawn's body that communicates a lot right there), void - love the deeply saturated tones, the high contrasts just on the blades of that labrys (axe)make the icon look more like a painting than a photo, lost, and all the color field icons plus extra #2, the Anya one. I love the concept to begin with and Anya deserves so much more love than she gets in fandom.

For the S4 set (and just the fact that you are giving S4 some love is awesome, IMO) my favorites include plus one, second claim, hands (great use of the light leak effect there); I like the way the text bends around her in Sorrow, the coloring of first and the effect of a - is it a lasso? in scenery? You drew that in? It looks like a rope, bands of light and a heart all at once. Nifty. Of the AC's #3 (Scream once) is my favorite - very effect use of color and light at the corners to brighten a very dark image, and using Giles' line from earlier in the ep is SO effective. And all your Ac's esp 2 & 4. Great work!

A question: your Cat#2 icon looks like it reads "neet ne in the pouring rain" (rather than "meet me") is there a problem with my monitor?
Nicole Westoh_cheezit on June 18th, 2014 06:52 pm (UTC)
no it's just the texture I made. When I stretched it part of the m went off the canvas.
Yes the lasso thing around her in scenery I drew as a texture. I pasted it over her and erased the top to make it look like it was going around her.

Anya definitely deserves more fandom love.
I was considering doing her for the next character20in20 contest
but I haven't decided quite yet. lol

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the lovely comments.
As usual you make me feel ten times prouder of my work than I already am. lol

I've never tried using a text texture before so that's still very new to me. I have made one texture - from the pattern on the inside of an empty jar of homemade yogurt.

That lasso is just beautifully done, so assured - and it does look like the outline of a heart, vaguely.

Anya definitely deserves more fandom love.
I was considering doing her for the next character20in20 contest
but I haven't decided quite yet. lol

I give this plan my full support!

Weirdly enough I've only made a couple of Anya icons, ever. I'll have to fix that someday.

Is that a new banner at the top of your journal with Temperance? Very, very emotional, well done! I can literally feel her exhaustion.
Nicole Westoh_cheezit on June 21st, 2014 05:41 am (UTC)
yeah I just made it.
that banner has to be my favorite Bones banner that
I've ever done so I had to put it on my lj. lol

Well I'm glad you give the Anya plan your support.
I'll definitely do her for the next contest
