20muses Round 1: Game of Thrones  
This set didn't turn out at all like I had imagined, I mean it's an ok set but I'm disappointed by many of the icons and executing the ideas I had for each artist group just fell flat.

For the most part I used the general 'feeling' I got from the artists work combined as inspiration (well the ones I liked from the inspiration post anyways).

Inspired by Louise LeBourgeois
These I made simple; minimalism (well..there was an attempt), tiny text, lots of negative space and blues.
I don't like how these ended up being rather repetitive but it's too late to try and fix them now. :\

Inspired by SIT (website)
These didn't turn out as I had imagined, especially the far crop ones. I think they would have worked better as larger graphics as the details get lost.
Particular pieces that inspired me the most were these; one, two*, three, four, five.
*directly inspired 6 and 8.

Inspired by Richard Whadcock
Faded(ish) colors and (at least partial) obscurity...yeah that didn't work out so well.

Inspired by Ian Francis & Fran Williams
I tried to blend these two styles together in a cohesive set but I gave up because nothing was working. So instead, the first two are Ian Francis inspired, 3-5 are inspired by Fran Williams.

Wow, these are all so amazing! #7 is just, amazing. I love the slits within the composition, it creates such an interesting, unique style to the icon. I love how focused it is as well within the icon, and how the black & white element seems to strengthen it so beautifully. The softness of the colouring in #11 is beautiful too. Even the gentle tones you've used in the background, and the way you faded the lighting just, works so magically here. And the boldness of the colours, and sheer vibrancy in #17 is all kind of exceptional. I love the contrast of the orange in the foreground to the blues and pinks and purples in the background, it all looks so perfect together. Stunning stuff!

Your icons feel so rough and yet so polished. I find myself in awe of them.

Fantastic set!! :) Your icons are always so flawless and stunning! I really need new words to describe how amazing your icons are :p

I love the blue colors this icon and texture work!

I love the lighting :)

I love what you done the character! Grunge texture work so well and contrast here is flawless!

You covered the character's face really skilfully ♥ The fog and the use of texture is amazing! The character is cut-out so well!

I love the sparkle textures ♥ These icons are so pretty and colorful! The lighting are amazing :)

Again, the way you cover the character face is just awesome ♥ I love fire texture and bg!

So beautiful crop ♥

I honestly adore them all, your interpretation of the paintings & overall artists' style is incredible. ♥
I love the grungy effects and the combination with crops and colours, I don't know how to explain it but the icons are truly emotional.
I'm saving almost all of them, but my absolute favourite ones are:
#1 – perfect composition, the cut-out is amazing and I adore the contrast between background colours and Ygritte. Also, the texture placement is on poin.
#2 – awesome sharpening, great lighting and the tiny text is a very brilliant idea because it gives that something more making the icon more... magical? (Oh gosh I am not so good with words today).
#4 – I just adore it, so ethereal and I just asdfghjkl
#7 and #10 are exceptional. The way you changed their appearance is astonisghing. And it feels like you're portraying the characters' personality? A+++
The colour splash in #8 is an excellent idea (you seriously do wonders) and #9 is pure art.
#12 – simply stunning. The colouring, the shadowing, the crop.. everything is splendid.
The composition in #14 is exceptional, and I love the warmth of the colours and the fact that the cut-out looks natural, it feels like the original background is this one you edited. WOW.
And I adore the crop on the Missandei icon, too.
#18 and #19 are spectacular. :D

What an amazing set! I adore all of them! What you did with textures and colors is gorgeous! LOVELOVELOVE! It's hard to pick any favs, but I would say #8 is one of them! I love the eyeshadow and that you work with two colors! But really, ALL OF THEM ARE WONDERFUL! Saving all! ♥
