Hi! I know, it's been almost a month since I last posted something, but february is killing me -.- I've done / 'll do a lot of tests, it's like my teachers wake all up exactly the same day and decide to start testing me all together XD add to that taking part to a history debate with my class and preparing a musical in english, and you'll know what being tired means XD anyway, I also think that this month I tried to do too many icons all together... I took part to 20inspirations 's round 15 (no claim) and inspired20in20 's round 7 (claim: the vampire diaries) at the same time, and I just finished my sets that are due to tomorrow XD because of all the things I'm doing, I didn't really put all my effort in those icons, so I'm not really satisfied.. at lease, these are not the icons I would have done if I had more time XD really hope you will like those though (:

     [6 - 10]
6. first kiss (2): I couldn't NOT use Finchel, my otp of all otps

inspired20in20 / round #7: attraction [31]
the vampire diaries

     [48 - 52]
     [53 - 57]
     [58 - 62]
     [63 - 67]
- inspiration: I chose to represent attraction in various way:
1. my attraction to the characters, by using only the characters I like (Damon, Elena, Caroline, Klaus and Rebekah).
2. the attraction between the characters (Delena and Klaroline).
3. using attractive colors and compositions, or images that attract me.
I used as inspiration the texture and images given and the second quote. 
Words have also been very helpful and inspiring for some icons!

     [68 - 72]
     [73 - 77]

Oh wow. You have some pretty great icons here! On the 20inspiration's batch, I loved the lighting in Rapunzel Hair, there's something about it I can't quite figure out but I really like it. The gunslinger is AMAZING (Ugh, Tate!) Disappears into Light is fantastic - the negative space and the texture use. And Lady in Red is just fabulous.

The inspired20in20 ones are soooo lovely. Loved 49 (the composition!), 56, 64 & 66. <3
Tomswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 03:20 pm (UTC)
thank you so much *-* I also have a love / hate relationship with rapunzel hair XD I like that icon but there's just something strange about it u.u
Mariajokermary on February 20th, 2012 12:46 pm (UTC)
Adoro le tue icons *_* Amo tantissimo le tue composizioni, adoro l'utilizzo delle textures e i colori sono bellissimi!
Tom: tvd - rebekahswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 03:27 pm (UTC)
grazie mille <3 soprattutto per quanto riguarda composizioni e texture, non sono mai molto convinto in realtà XD
hopeitallaway on February 20th, 2012 12:54 pm (UTC)
very nice. your texture use is interesting and you have some very beautiful crops in here.

Spero di non sbagliare scrivendoti in italiano anziché in inglese :)
Non avevo mai visto le tue icons prima di oggi e mi sono spulciata un po' i tuoi post precedenti, belle icons davvero!
Tom: got - jonswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
nono non sbagli XD grazie mille comunque, sono contento ti piacciano *w*

You've got quiet a lot of awesome icons there!

#6 has so many pretty colours + the textures = *-*
#12 is amazing! I love the textures (even though I have no idea what the 8,1 means)
I love the blues in #19 (+ #20 is 10 not 11 :D)
#49 is brilliant! The composition is so awesome :3
#51 ♥♥♥♥ (not my fandom but definitely my colours and textures)
Tomswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 03:41 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I just tried out that color effect on 6 and I'm glad you like it! in 12 the number doesn't mean anything in particular, I just liked that crop and didn't know how to "fill" the icon because it looked empty XD Thank you, I'll edit 20, I got confused with doctors XD

These are gorgeous! Your blending and texture use is seriously stunning.
Tomswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 03:47 pm (UTC)
wow thank you so much! I'm always not satisfied at all of my blending, so it's big compliment for me XD
whatthedeucelibrary_of_sex on February 20th, 2012 06:36 pm (UTC)
Dude, you blend SO WELL! I told you there was something you could do that I can't! 3 is so awesome cuz of the crops and all the muted yellow goodness at the top. It looks like he's almost fading away and that gives the piece a bit of an ethereal feel. 17 has wonderful contrast, and I love the texturing in 20 that gives a roughness to his jacket! It's excellent to see all the different coloring schemes you managed to pll off in 42-45. I love seeing the progression of a single cap like that! 49 is absolutely fabulous with the grunginess and use of silhouettes. That's the true standout in this post for me!
Tom: got - sansaswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 03:57 pm (UTC)
OMG, how can someone as good as you say something like that about me? you made my day *______*
Like I said to someone else, I HATE my blending and I never completely like it, so it's quite strange to hear you say it's good XD in 3 I wanted to give this ethereal feel to contrast the violence of the image and ideas behind the character. as for 42 - 45, as you can see in most of my posts, I can never decide which icons I prefer, so I make TONS of alternates with different colors and crops XD sometimes I think I should just try to decide what I like and reduce the amount of icons I make, for every 20in20 I end up doing like at least 3 times the number of icons requested o.o I honestly don't know how 49 came to my mind, I'm surprised of myself XD Anyway thank you again, I'm so flattered <3

giulsssgiulsss on February 20th, 2012 10:26 pm (UTC)
adoro tantissimo la 56 e la 64, soprattutto la prima però! è di un eleganza inesprimibile (:
per il 20inspiration di rachel avrei scelto la 22 mentre di sansa la 36, sono bellissime :D
e mi piace un casino anche la 17-42-43 (damon), riesci a cambiare i colori in un modo stupendo!!
Tomswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 04:02 pm (UTC)
ahah grazie mille giuls <3 figurati che la 56 è uscita quasi per caso e nemmeno mi piaceva tanto.. la 22 non mi dispiaceva, ma c'era qualcosa nella text verde della 2 che mi attirava di più, come nella 14 amo quel tono di rosa, anche se avrei usato tutte e tre le versioni XD quelle di damon sono state un incubo, ne avevo altre 4/5 versioni in altri colori, non riuscivo a decidere quale usare XD

so much gorgeousness, all in one post!! the blending in your icons is super unique and interesting, i never imagined that something like 3 or 55 could ever be pulled off as awesomely as you did! mostly though the level of detail and intricacy everywhere is super impressive, especially combined with how great you are at your use of textures. my favs are definitely 12, 49, 56, and 59 C:
Tom: tvd - klarolineswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 04:07 pm (UTC)
wow thank you *^* I'm glad you like my blending, 3 and 55 are an example of my main blending style, I tend to use it a lot without even noticing it! And also the fact that I like to make my icons "perfect" in every detail XD

These are divine.
20inspirations faves: Holy bananas the texture and light in #8, just wow. 12 & 18 I just want to touch, the use of texture is so physical if that makes sense--gorgeous.
inspired20in20 faves: 49, or profile magic as I dubbed it. There is something very raw and emotional in 52, it pulls you in. And 56 is a subtle but BEAUTIFUL use of contrast in subtle color and shape, love the crops, everything.

Amazing work!
Tomswanwingful on February 22nd, 2012 04:17 pm (UTC)
thank you so much sweetie <3 I love 8, I seriously don't know how I made it! Rose is magic, that's my theory XD I never heard anyone say that my texture use is physical, but I appreciate it (: in 49 my main idea was "mystery" and I think it kinda turned out that way, and as for 52, yes, my idea was to compare and contrast the two sides of Rebekah's personality, by lighting her hair, and her sweet/teenage girl side, and make the rest very dark, as she wants to appear. 56 was just intended to be a very elegant icon, with an old fashioned look! thank you again for your comment, I really appreciate it *^*
