Hey guys! So, as many of you know, over at 20inspirations the theme for last round was Text. I had been so gung-ho about the theme because text is definitely something I struggle with and I know it's one of my weaker points so I wanted to take a good hard stab at it. I only got up to 12 icons done though :( I had thought maybe I just wouldn't post until I did finish the full 20 but given how crazy things are rn in real life (in a good day, luckily -- don't worry, no shattered monitors or water logged laptops this time lol) I figured best to just go ahead and post now. I can always continue to work on my text in future batches, amirite? My claim was Teen Wolf and I think I feel okay with how most turned out? I definitely have even more of an appreciation of those makers who make it look so easy. I have included textless alts for nearly all of them should you prefer that. The rest of the icons are just ones I've had around on my laptop from various activities. Things are looking up so here's hoping from now til the rest of the year you get a couple posts from me a month, an icon and a texture post at least. Thank you in advance for your comments, I really appreciate them! ♥

01-22 TEEN WOLF
(Includes 10 textless alts)
24-28 TELEVISION
(One Tree Hill, Veronica Mars, Leverage, Smallville)
29-35 MUSIC & FILM
(One Direction [Zayn Malik], Disney [Tarzan, Monsters Inc.], The Princess Bride)

loves on you these are so amazing *~* YOUR TEXT IS SO GOOD HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THIS/?!?!?1/1?! http://i.imgur.com/8Lirp3d.png

im stealing the jane icon for never cuz im never buying userpics ever again (probably) (maybe ill use it on twitter ifthats ok with u)
:333 YOU'RE THE BEST <333

IDK MAN I left those icons (it was a theme where you had to make icons that describe you~ and what you like~ and so on so i was like.. I LIKE ZAYN?? lmao but anyway) til last minute. I literally think of him every time I hear the song ugh. I think the text looks a bit sloppy but I guess people like that because a lot of people pick it out haha.

Haha I know what you mean. I don't want to extend user pics but I sometimes do and idk. But ofc I don't mind sillyyyy ANYTHING FOR YOU FOREVER :****
asdasfsf these are incredible, and yes the text works so awesomely in all of them ♥ 21 has to be my favorite cause I just adore creative silhouette use like that, but I also really love 1 (perfect composition), 3 (gorgoeus lighting and color combination), 7 (LOVE the text, especially the font, and damn the lighting is pure perfection), 15 (stunning stunning candy colors ♥), 19 (wow at the composition *__* the slicing really works), and their respective text alts, though I definitely think the text adds something awesome in each of them :)

24, 26, 27 and 29 have jaw-dropping coloring and a really fun and creative overall look. 29 is particularly stunning in every way, I'm in awe of the text use especially.
Hello. You're cute. Goodbye. <3

i sped-read... speed-read... speedreaded .. i looked at the words in your blurb very quickly the first time around before going back to read it again more thoroughly but both times i thought you said you'd be posting several times a month on TOP of icon and texture posts and i was like !!! (even though i don't... know what else you would be posting... if they weren't already just icon or texture posts?) but even so. an icon post a month is ridic. you're ridic and the quality of these icons in this post is ridic

i'm glad you're too busy to finish your 20insp entry but mostly i'm still sad you didn't finish it because the icons you did get done are perf!!!! the colouring in every single one i stg. WHAT IS 23 AND WHAT IS 12. HOW ARE THEY LIKE THAT AND SMOOTH AND PERF AND PRETTY AND FANTASTIC?

how come you can do both muted and vibrant? that's not fair

I KNEW YOU DID THAT SCOTT'S HEAD IS FULL OF ALLISON ICON LMAO I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT I KNEW IT

i was going to save all my word blahs for 11 and the paleness and the TEXT!!!! and the shadows and THE TEXT!! but i got distracted by zayn and now that's all i want to talk about. isn't that from a pap shot? THAT'S FROM A PAP SHOT, ISN'T IT? HOW COME YOU MADE IT SO PRETTY? HOW DID YOU MAKE A QUALITY ICON FROM A PAPARAZZI PHOTO?

also the colours in 26 are my fav in this entire post i think and i'm always so happy whenever i see you making icons of sophia bush's qt bb face

i don't know why i always end up with so many words for so few thoughts. if i were a person who understood how to harness brevity i would have been able to leave you this comment with an appropriate number of words for the amount of substantial brain waves i actually possess while writing it. that is to say you wouldn't have to waste your time reading this because it would be 5 words long.
why are your comments always 5 pages long

You've done so well with your text set though ;A; I love 05, 09, 13 & 17!
;___; you rly think so??? Thank you!!! <33333
Princess Bride! I FLAILED. And snagged. I am also very much in love with #26. Gorgeous colours.
:D :D The very best movie! Thank you very much! <3
Wow, #34 is absolutely amazing!
Aw, thank you! I was worried I didn't really execute it that way but I'm glad you think so highly of it! <3
You use of text is STUNNING, and I'm definitely taking the Veronica icon, thank you!
Oh gosh, that word and text all in the same sentence I'm not worthy lol :3 Thank you very much for saying so and I'm glad you liked the Veronica icon! <3
Amazing! That Zayn icon(29) is perfect omfg <3
LOLOLOL the ALLISONALLISONALLISONALLISONALLISONALLISONALLISON one. Also A+ choice of font on "losers."
Love the Veronica ones, snagged!

So pretty! Snagging #14. Will credit of course.
(ノ⊙‿⊙✿)ノ*:・゚✧

YOUR
TEXT
GOD
DAMNIT
Did you pass out or something? Why is that comment so brief? It's almost eerie.
These are fantastic! Snagged some, will credit.
The soft, bright glow emanating from 3-4 is just awesome, dude! I love the cheerful, sweet vibe of those icons, and the the text in 3 gives it more punch and gusto! The lighting, contrast, and close crop in 5-6 are absolutely spectacular altogether. SPECTACULAR. Love the font combo and text spacing in 7 as well as the shadowing in his chest versus the lighting in his face in that and 8. I dig the muted color blocks in 11-12 and how his face is super dark and mysterious while hers has lots of soft light! Looooove the paleness, crop, and text cascading down in 13-14. So elegant and pretty! 15-16's coloring totally reminds me of endearest. 19-20 has slicing. I adore slicing so YES PLS! 2 is the coolest thing here, without a doubt. I love the silhouette against that almost pale orange, and the text scrawling within it is just perfection! 27 will make me cry so NO THX. (Love the fuckin' rich, deep colors. But still NO THX. I'm not over the cancellation yet. NO.) 29 is awwwwwwesome, but you already know that. The text is just so funky and offbeat, and I love the laser bright color blocks! 31 is just awwwwww. He looks so sad and alone. I like the solemnity of that piece. Whoa, I've never used "solemnity" when describing an icon. WORD NERD POINTS FOR ME. WHAT UP.

YO FACE IS LOVE. <4
Awesome post! I love the way you can move so wonderfully between soft icons with stunning vibrance and more muted, gritty tones! It's fantastic :)

I love the intensity of #6. The crop is divine, and the contrast is spectacular - especially love the texture to the side and how beautifully you've used that splash of colour to play on the red text in #5. #13 is amazing. The colouring is so flawless, I think the contrast is spot on and the lighting is absolutely wonderful. The subtle texture work is lovely, and the text placement just works so well!

#17 is gorgeous as well. The vibrant colours in the lighting are just divine and the text work is awesome. And #19 has the most interesting, creative composition - the dark muted green and brown tones play off each other so wonderfully and the blending/blocking is just insane. And I reallllly love the lighting, colours, everything about #33. It's all kinds of wonderful!

Gorgeous stuff!
AIEEE. THE BRIGHTNESS. *_* I love it! Loving the text too. It would have been cool to see your finished set. :)

Anyway, let me list out my favourites. :D

26 - It is the first icon I noticed. I love the colours and the grunginess of it. It looks streaky-painty and cool! :D

24 - IS ADORABLE. LIKE SERIOUSLY ADORABLE. :D

13 - I love the brown tones and b'awww, the text too!

15 - IS AMAZING. AND SENSATIONAL. I love the pink and yellow contrast.

4 - Is ridiculously cute. And so colourful. And pretty!

29 - I lovelovelove the text here! The alignment of it is awesome. And as is the background!

Beautiful batch! :D

oh pretty!!
Super pretty!
I have no idea how I missed these, but asdfghjkl colour porn <3333 And I love the way you've used text! Saving 4, 7, 12, 15, 19 & 21 ♥
They are so gorgeous hun!! I love the colors are fab. You do vibrant colors beautifully but I really love the soft ones :)
lovely icons!!!
these are so stunningggggggggggggggggggggggg
snagged 16, 17, and 20.

1 & 7 are absolutely amazing as well.
I really like your use of text --#13, #15, #19 and #21 are brilliant, and let me say, cropping & use of light in #22 are perfect!
Beautiful lighting on 8, and I love the look of 19/20. Plus, the colors on 26 YUM.
