Why do I keep doing this? Again I started making the icons for 20muses when there was still plenty of time left and then just stopped and now only managed to finish them with the extension. Anyway, the theme was "keep it simple" which is perfect for me. I used the four different themes from the inspiration post and also used all of the different categories. Only for color I chose bold/vibrant since I'm always doing plenty of muted icons. I also tried that type of coloring on some of the other icons. Overall I'm not that satisfied with how the style of this set is all over the place, but there are some icons I'm rather happy with, especially with the coloring.
The second part of this post consists of all Daredevil icons I made so far this year, mostly from S1, which I wanted to post before really getting into S2 caps ;)

Incredible set! I LOVE 36 and 42. I love the croppings and colors on them. I like what you did with the muted colors in 28 and the overall look on 18. I really like 29 too, this version of the coloring makes a completely different impact, and I love the contrast.

The cropping is so great in these! Especially 2-5 and 21. I really love the coloring in 9, 23, 26, 29, 31 and 39-41. :)

Black Sails! I love that show. I really need to get around to watched Season 3! These are really gorgeous and perfect for this challenge. My favorites are 1, 3, 4, and 16. I also really love the crop and sharpness of 31.

From the BS set, in particular #9 and #10 are astonishing.
I love the extreme close ups of #1, #2 and #5 VERY MUCH.
The muted tones + perfect light balancing of #4 and 12 is spectacular,
and I literally adore the composition in #3. #13 is my absolute favourite
icon of the batch, but I also appreciate #16 and #20.

The DD icons are as marvellous. #29 is the very first one that catches my
attention and I am definitely going to snag it and uploadi it. The sharpening
is fantastic, and the colours are out of this world. I also love the alternative coloured version,
and the way you worked with black & white. The crop in #26, #31 and #36 is magnificent, and
the vibrancy in #35, #39, #40 and #41 utterly beautiful. *O* And the texture work in #27 and #38!

Okay I lied I am gonna save TONS. <33

There are so many amazing things in this post, idk where to start!

Ok so I love that you challenged yourself with ALL the prompts. That's so cool and definitely makes me feel lazy about my set where I only picked one. And on top of that you challenged yourself with the vibrant colorings, which btw are spectacular. I particularly love 8, the colors are so glowy and distinctive, I always admire it when people manage vibrant closecrops, and I love that you picked unusual shades of primary colors.
Then again your muted closecrops are always 1000% flawlessness too, as seen perfectly in 4!! The crop, lighting, coloring, contrast and sharpness are all spot on. I really love the smooth shiny look on 12 and the lighting and pale blueish coloring on 16 (which looks like a nightmare cap, so many characters! but you made it totally work). Loving the strong contrast and dark negative space on 13 and the dark vibrancy of 9. 3 is incredible, it would already be an excellent negative space icon with just the boat (gorgeous clarity and coloring) but the 'reflection' gives it a great composition. Annd I also adore the coloring on 5.

The Daredevil ones are amazing too, I particularly love 26 (another great example of your muted closecrop mastery), 39 (WOW I love the two-colored lighting and the contrast is stunning!), and 24&30 (both of these have a nicely sharp overall look which looks great with the muted tones).

Wonderful post!

Your use of negative space in 3 is just brilliant, actually the whole first row looks amazing together as a set. Love the simplicity of 1 in particular, that icon is just so well done. Also really like 16, the brightness coupled with the low contrast makes such a stunning result.

I also LOVE the more grungier icons in your DD set, like 29, 31 and 37 - so interesting! 30 is great (Foggy <3) and 36 is just stunning, perfect use of light (also Karen <3)

I can never get sets to look coherent, but I'm slowly starting to get used to it and not mind so much.

I like the color ones a lot, especially if as you say you don't usually do vibrant, they all turned out really beautiful. I'm very much into far crops right now, so the "peculiar screenshots" appeal to me, as well. I especially like the first and last ones, and the third one with those glowy yellow things that look like flames (but probably aren't).

The boat one is cool, too. It reminds me of one I did last year. Boats are so well suited for simple center crop.

I still haven't gotten around to starting Daredevil S2, either. I really like 29 with its unusual bold coloring. 37 is amazing, too (and 38). I keep staring at it.
