[Prompts & Ramblings]
1. Random character: Rean Schwarzer (Trails of Cold Steel)
I got lucky with this, I really like Rean
2. Random icontest challenge: Challenge 54: Two-tone
Nothing really fancy here, orange + green icon, I think it fits the challenge just fine!
3. Random praise: "I really like the dominant pink in the colouring [...]."
Again nothing fancy here. Thinking about the color pink, the hepatocite in Cells at Work was the first thing that came to mind, so I iconed her
4. Random screencap: The Mummy
I know is a cult movie and everything, but I have never seen the mummy and I know nothing about the character in the cap, so I went for something simple
5. Random song: No Doubt - Spiderwebs
As I was listening to this song, I thought Cynthia from Great Pretender was a good fit. Lyrics from the song are also used in the icon
6. Random tutorial: Tutorial by 12feethigh
This was kinda hard, but as I tried the tutorial, I really like the use of contrast as well as the textures that were used
7. Random movie poster: A Good Woman Is Hard to Find (2019)
I took a fiew elements from the poster such as the red and blue colors and the dark athmosphere with misterious background
8. Random quote: "Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." - Og Mandino
This quote sounded something Sylvando from Dragon Quest XI would say as it fits quite well his philosophy. So, yeah, I made him actually saying that
9. Random textures: trapunta
Nothing fancy here either, the texture should look very recogniable too!
10. Random font: Tw Cen Mt
i got quite lucky here as well, nice sans serif fonts are the easiest for me to use!
11. Random trope: Rain of Blood
Given the prompt, I couldn't help, I had to icon Estinien in his covered in blood armor. I also tried to picture blood within the icon as a decoration
12. Random remake: this icon
The original icon is among my favorites. I tried to replicate what I really liked (the floating element) and elaborate on other things, such as background and colours. It got a lot busier, but I feel like it is still quite recognizable
13. Random song title: Apocalyptic Prophecy
Profecies about the world ending are a beloved trophe in JRPG and as a super fan of the genre I had a lot of examples to choose. I ended up iconing Estelle from Tales of Vesperia as I think she fits the concept just fine and it is quite some time since the last time I iconed this game
14. Random inspiration icon: Icon by longerthanwedo
I feel like this doesn't need many explanations, I was of course inspired by the composition
15. Random palette: Bella9102 CLAD
I'll admit I kinda prefer the alt I made, but I didn't want to exclude any of the colors in the palette
16. Random art: Slow Motion Walk (Presented at Kaldor) (Marina Abramović, 2015)
This was hard. I had a pretty good idea on how I wanted to elaborate on this, but I managing to find a cap that could be used for it was terrible. I think the most prominent feeling in this photo is solitude and isolation despite being in a crowd. I hope I managed to replicate this feeling in my icon
17. Random album cover: Slipknot – 9.0: Live
I tried to come up with a composition that reminded me of the album cover, with the subject in the lower half and text in the upper one
18. Random book cover: The Hanford Plaintiffs: Voices from the Fight for Atomic Justice by Trisha T. Pritikin, Richard C. Eymann (Foreword)
Another though one for me. I tried to replicate the text composition using with different fonts
19. Random word: mourning
Tifa's mourning in this scene is very powerful and hit me like a truck. Seemd like the right scene to icon for this word
20. Random screencap pool: Sherlock (caps from kissthemgoodbye.net)
I feel like I already used the fifth cap for another icon back then, so I went for another one. It's always quite fun to icon Sherlock
