Banners for kwritten including Banner Maker's Choice Award for her entire AC Set. I love the cinematic quality of her cropping her focus on Dawn's face. That episode and especially that scene is incredibly underrated IMO - it's the entire Bangel saga compressed into one episode, ending in a little girl having to kill her first love. And having just worked with some very dark and grainy screencaps from that ep, I'm in awe of the lovely "finish" she achieves here. (How in the world does she get those clear colors and that dewy look in ipiccy?)

I think I've mentioned this before, but my first place category winner was my homage to sweet_lyri's style of wrapping a figure in shadows until it's nearly submerged; I wanted to give it a try but never imagined it would be one of my most popular icons this round. And I did not see the third place category win coming at all and I'm tickled that it's the Joyce icon; it and the Uncle Enyios icon were two of my favorites of my set.

Kudos to all the winners! I am so proud of you! Your banners are gorgeous, of course!

Beautiful banners, hun!
Also, congratulations to all the winners. Especially you. I love that "obscured" icon so much. It's awesome.
So many lovely icons this round -- including yours! And very good banner maker's choice. I love that set.
