icon battle with shadowserenity! (11 x-men: first class icons (+ 2 header/wps) and 11 star wars)  
Thanks to shadowserenity for doing this icon battle with me! It was so much fun and the results are, I think, stunning. ;) You can find her post here.

rules (such as they are):
please credit.
don't hotlink.
don't alter without my permission (this includes resizing).

- it would be really appreciated if you commented, and let me know which icon(s) you take - it lets me know what you like. :)
- if you want something slightly different (no text or different text, different wallpaper size, etc.), feel free to ask - I'll do it if I can.
- resources.

Thanks! I think I thought out of the box with that one. ;)

Too pretty for words, but I'll try anyway :D I'm taking shadowserenity's last Obi-Wan, lovely rop and colors. I also ADORE obaona's 4 (creative!), 7 (awesome job with texturizing, really unique), 10 (so creative and lovely vibrance!), 14 (love what you've done with the background) & 21 (really dynamic icon, lovely crop & colors), and shadowserenity's 1 (looove the background), 3 (love the zoom effect), 4 (lovely composition), 5 (a warm, rich coloring + interesting crop), and 6 (amazing composition). Also love 16s by both. You're both very talented! ^^

I'm glad you like my 4 and 7, I was really proud of those! 10, too, because it's so different than my normal. Thank you so much! It totally agree with you that shadowserenity's icons rock. :D

Will probably snag some later ♥

Ooh, time to pick some favourites.

#3 - I love your chosen background replacement. Suits Moira's figure perfectly.
#4 - My favourite, favourite icon. It's beautiful. Love the composition - the placement of Charles and Erik and the text (great font choice, too).
#7 - Love the colouring and the paint brush effect.
#8 - Stunning colouring - thank you soft light blobs! That is the prettiest lighting in a submarine ever.
#10 - Love the use of the North American background and the placement of Charles and Erik.
#13 - Great use of negative space and lovely colours. I much prefer your icon to mine.
#17 - Same with this one. I'm still "how did you achieve such bright colours without any pixellation"? Fantastic crop, too.
#18 - The colouring got me straight away. Lovely.
#21 - I'm totally jealous of this icon. The blue blue of the sky and the yellow yellow of the sand combined with the swirl effect - lovely.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment, darling! :D Like I said, I'm so glad you like 4 (and that you're still using it! yay!) because it was a bit of departure for me and I'm pleased with how it turned out. 7 is the same, the paint brush thing is a new effect. 8 was I think the first one I made, I'm glad you like it, simple as it is. :D 10, I really wanted to get the whole world in there, but it just wasn't going to work. :p 17 I did a fair bit of selective smoothing, but it wasn't as difficult as it may look. :p I actually MUCH prefer your 18, that was more creative and doing something more with the coloring, imho.

Thank you, darling!
