Two posts in one week! I could have waited until Monday when the [livejournal.com profile] 10in30 set is due, but I wanted to post these before the new episode of Black Sails.

01-12 Black Sails for [livejournal.com profile] 10in30
13-32 Ant-Man
33-39 Miscellaneous (The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Martian, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Zootopia, Panic! at the Disco)

30in10 / Black Sails


Since not everyone knows about the specific challenge I'll start with the theme which was starcrossed lovers (click the link for more information).
The first five icons are all from 2x05 for obvious reasons. It's really hard to icon the kiss or rather this specific scene :(
The other five icons are in chronological order, starting with Flint alone at the beginning of the season. All of these are also kind of connected to the flashbacks (only 9 directly comes from one) and with that his previous relationship with Thomas in my head. Silver does play a role in them, but I never put him into focus. Longing is kind of Flint's default mode and I believe Silver has a strong role in that, but if that pairing really happens romantically? No idea, I'd say the chances are 50/50 right now. In any case, these two will form a strong partnership though that will help Flint get closer to what he is longing for, whether that is a romantic/sexual relationship or power over Nassau, probably hopefully both *coughs*
There are two icons with text and I used the same font and similar placement to parallel the two different relationships. There are better quotes in S3, but they would have been a little long.
I have a lot of feelings about gay and potentially gay pirates.

OH DAMN! *__* I love the cropping on the Black Sails set! #1, #2 (and the light on this one!) and #4 are so amazing!
And I love the muted coloring on them too. Also the Zootopia one is so adorable! (I'm watching it next Wednesday, the trailers looked so cute :D)
Saving a bunch :)

Ahhhh lovely lovely cropping on your 10in30 set, I'm very much swooning over 1, 4 (!) and 5. 7 and 10 are among my favourites as well, love the text in the former and the colours/brightness in the latter.

I have so many feelings about your 10in30 set. I admit, I am intrigued about Black Sails now. :D

I really love the colouring and crops across the whole set. Makes it looks like a very tender love story. In particular, I love icon no 5. The text is so pretty and perfect!

I also love 18! The colouring is perfect and I love the bright pops of blue. Love 33 because the colouring is pretty and also cause I am so looking forward to the movie!

And lastly, I love 37. The colouring and the text are amazing! Gives the icon a creepy vibe.

Great job! :)

#15 has a stunning crop and the light is perfect! same as #21, just.. WOW.

Oh man, that Black Sails set. I really can't choose a favorite because they go together so fantastically as a set. They're dark and moody and kind of sad. But in a good way! I skipped this round because I'm not a huge romantic and I just didn't think I could do the theme justice. But you've perfectly captured it here. Also, I love your explanations for the icons. It gives such lovely insight and creates a little narrative that ties them all together. Awesome job all around. :)

I need to say that I was waiting for more Black Sails icons from you! ♡
You honestly do wonders with those caps, I am speechless.
They way you convey feelings with your crops and compositions is impressive.
The crops in #2, #3, #4 and #6 are astonishing. Your text placement absolutely exceptional
and I adore the idea of similar placement + same font because it really fits, speaking of Flint's
relationship with both Thomas and Silver. Also, perfect balance between lights and shadows in #8, #9 and #10!

As for what you said in your explanation, I do think too that John's going to play an important role in James' life.
Have you seen the latest episode?? There was a moment I was about to cry because THE FEELS. I don't
know if something romantic will ever happen between the two (one can only hope) but oh my gosh that particular scene can even be enough because it was SO good and painful and everything.

Such pretty colouring in these icons, especially in 13, 17, 22 and 29. So vibrant and shiny and I just love the entire feel to 29. Great corpping in 4, 5 and 21 in particular. Just the entire feel to the Black Sails icons is great, you so get the feel of the show across. Just beautiful! Oh and I love the colouring in 33 and the lighting in 35- that icon is so pretty!

These are stunning! I love the "Black Sails" icons and I don't even watch the show. :P The colouring and typography are perfect.

I am saving the Zootopia icon, and will be sure to credit. Thank you!

Black Sails!! They're all so gorgeous. Snagging them. :)

It warms my heart to see so many other Black Sails lovers. LJ needs a fan community for the show.
