[identity profile] red-satin-doll.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] buffyversetop5
A continuation of sorts from my previous post: more icons, all from various [livejournal.com profile] slayerstillness challenges during the year excluding Challenge 39 covered in my previous post. Once again, verbiage will be kept to a minimum so the art can do the talking; and artists listed in alphabetical order by name.  (Otherwise I'd never get done here.)

I have set a restriction on myself for these posts: To list the artists only once within each post (so no duplicates, This was a helluva lot harder than I realized when you've got artists so fantastically talented and prolific like [livejournal.com profile] sweet_lyri, [livejournal.com profile] teragramm and [livejournal.com profile] tempertemper.  Complicating things is the fact that [livejournal.com profile] slayerstillness seems to have a smaller pool of regular participants than some other comms. (But don't quote me on that):

1) Drusilla by [livejournal.com profile] emmatheslayer for Challenge 57 (November)
BTW, I've seen other icons use this framing device and even this exact texture since then, but none so effectively.

2) Buffy IWRY (It Hurts Every Day) by [livejournal.com profile] muirthemne for Challenge 47 (June)
One of her only icons that round that did not take home a prize is the one that is my favorite. Go figure

3) Dawn by [livejournal.com profile] sweet_lyri for Challenge 40 (March)
Her Dawn set for [livejournal.com profile] btvsats20in20 was also superb. It's a departure from the style she's established this year of deep shadows.

4) Angel heart graffiti by [livejournal.com profile] tempertemper for Challenge 38 (January)
Sinister, witty and visually striking.

5) Buffy (A Father's Love) by [livejournal.com profile] teragramm for Challenge 51 (August)
In all honesty and with all due respect to the other wonderful artists I adore, this icon is probably in my top 5 for the entire year, if I was really truly forced to pare it down.

Thank you so much for the shout out. This icon was one of my favorites for the year, so I'm especially pleased it made your list.

Very nice list, some of these I some how missed but all are lovely!!

Yours was also wonderful. I'm not sure I saw it before, but it's certainly poignant and true to the characters.

Aw ♥

It really is! I love the way the image of Dru encroaches on the frame a little :)

Ooh. Fantabulous! There's something about that Dawn one that keeps bringing me back to it.
