32. [bestof_icons] and the winner is...

Without much ado, the people have decided that my best icon of 2020 (or is it their favorite icon of mine?) is…



Thank you, once again, for all the votes and nominations. It means a lot ♥ I do think the poll had many, if not most, of the icons I would've picked for myself so that's pretty cool.

28. [multi] icon remakes for bestof_icons

Wait, am I posting an update before the end of the month!? Wow. I don't know if I'll have the time to make any more icons this year and, if I do, I'll probably add whatever remakes they likely are to this post.
bestof_icons is back this year and I couldn't be more excited. The remakes activity is so much fun (and god, I still have to pick other people's icons!) and this year was no different – even if I really liked most of the icons that got picked and I found it difficult to find a new spin. That's the fun of it, isn't it?
You be the judge of how they turned out. I like a couple of them quite a bit! They're not the best, I'm telling you that for free. They're… fine?

TV: La Casa de Papel, The West Wing, The Good Place, Brooklyn 99, Bones [19]

25. [multi] muted & vibrant for somein30

A set of 16 normal mode muted and vibrant icons (and more than likely somewhere in between) for somein30. I loved the theme and its inspo post, which was simply stunning, but for the longest time, I wasn't sure I'd make anything for it. I haven't really made icons since the last post in here, for the inaugural somein30 round, and I feel rusty – I couldn't make anything work but I wanted to try to make a set of five, at the very least.
The result? 16 very simple icons that are not my best but hopefully aren't too awful. I normally gravitate towards vibrancy/natural coloring in my coloring and I felt I even struggled to take them fully there. Depending on the monitor, they look somewhat muted and weird. I also decided they were sixteen (and not fifteen) while preparing this post so yay.

[Includes…]TV: The Queen's Gambit, Succession, The Good Place, The West Wing, The Crown, Babylon Berlin, Gilmore Girls, Good Omens, Sex Education
Movies: Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Enola Holmes, Solo
Music/Celebs: Phoebe Bridgers

24. [multi] technical game for somein30

All the cool kids are doing it! somein30 had such a fun technical round this time around and though I've been out of LJ for most of the month, I've been catching up on everyone's stunning sets. Seriously, mine is nowhere as good but I figured I'd post it already. (After a good four weeks, I'm starting to doubt whether some of these, particularly in the first row, even fit their normal mode prompt, let alone their second theme. Yikes.)




60 icons total, from the following...
tv: The Mandalorian, The West Wing, The Good Place, Cardcaptor Sakura, Bones, Babylon Berlin, This is Us, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Dead to Me, Stumptown, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sex Education
movies: Hamilton, Knives Out
people: Phoebe Bridgers, Allison Janney
