Spoilers for the first 2 episodes, some scenes from the trailers, and an event from the book (A Clash of Kings) that hasn't appeared in the show yet...though I don't think non-readers will be that spoiled - just a little confused! Also, there's a quote from book 3, A Storm of Swords, that I keep reusing in all of my Cat/Petyr icons looooool - I'M NOT EVEN SURE IF I SHIP THEM OR NOT ilovenedireallydo ;A;
This was a really difficult round for me, because after looking at these icons, I feel like I didn't really step out of my box very much - the theme was "Down The Rabbit Hole" - surreal, trippy experimental stuff - and I'm not sure how much of my icons fit the criteria lol. I think what I did for a handful of icons was use a lot of the provided textures...
1. graphic + textures (innocent_lexys | tinebrella)
5. textures (neke | tinebrella)
6. word: far-out + A bit of a stretch, but I was inspired by the shapes in this graphic, then found this texture by fuuurs and used that because of the similar shapes, though the icon is so dark/monochrome that you can't really tell D:
7. photo + biliki's coloring style sortof.
8. graphic + textures (shalowater | neke)
9. texture - tinebrella + icon - schmiss
10. icons (poshing | colourmayfade)
11. icons - makarosh (1 | 2)
12. words: 3D + glittering
13. icons (paperdreams | 24_amends)
14. word: intense
15. textures (lookslikerain | neke)
16. word: multicolor + (not in the provided inspirations) ofraindrops
17. photo - I originally tried to imitate the technique in the photo, but I failed miserably because the only caps I could find of S2 Renly were in daylight.
18. word: duplicate. Arya also has trees (the ones at the end of 2x01!) on her face, yes.
