Week 30 - Marcus Entries

Finished my icons :) I went for the serious Marcus. I've always thought of him as a tragic character with a dark side. I wanted to show the side of him that makes Marcus capable of being a Ranger.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

Especially #1 and #3! Oh! The pretties!
Aww, thank you! {blushes}. I'm very pleased with this set. Marcus is one of my favorite characters, so I wanted to do him justice in making these icons :)
The third is awesome! I love the color.
Thanks! Glad you like :) It took me a while to adjust the coloring on #3 to what I liked, since the cap's colors were so different. It also was an unusual cap to crop. I like how it turned out :)
buhbuhbuhbuh. SO MUCH LOVE. I will have to gank some after the contest is over, with your permission of course. <3
Hehehe :D I feel the Marcus love, lol ;) Sure you're welcome to snag anything I make. I'm sure you will anyway, but I'd appreciate credit if you do decide to take any. I'm a slow icon maker and it takes me forever to alter them :) Thanks!
No worries! I always credit. ^_^
Sweet, thanks :) I think the members of this community are pretty good about that.

If you want, you can credit either polarisgraphics or whitestar. I'm not used to having my graphics journal yet so I forget to mention it, lol :)

Did you enter any icons for the contest?
Good to know! I usually credit the maker, but if you'd like I'll credit the graphics journal. That way people will wander your way.

*laughs* No. My icon making abilities are nonexistant. I've made....5? Maybe 10 if you count some REALLY BAD paint ones?

Besides, Hyperbolic Geometry and my Junior Field Experience are killing all my free time. x.x I can't want for the semester to be over.
oh wow, # 3 is perfection and # 5 speaks volumes!
Thank you! :D I'm so glad you like them. I was looking for a quote to put in one of the Marcus icons, and the Ranger quote was short and sweet. It worked perfect for the look of #5. By the way, your Marcus Pike icon is too funny I love it, lol ;)
They are all beautiful! But #3 is pure art. Gorgeous!
Thank you for the wonderful compliment :) I also feel that some icons I've seen are like works of art, so it means a lot to me to have you say that. I'm very happy I was able to find a texture with the tapestry Renaissance feel I wanted. That really helped with the mood.
Those are really pretty! I love the way you worked in the celtic art in 4! Very, very nice!!
Thank you :) Yeah, for some reason I was pulled to the Medieval, Renaissance, and Celtic feelings. I guess Rangers remind me of Knights so I automatically went with those moods. It also doesn't hurt that I like those themes a lot, lol ;)
Have to agree with you on that -- I've always thought of knights when I think of the Rangers. Of course, the Arthurian episode kinda encouraged that, too :D
Beautiful! You really did a lot with the caps :)
Thank you :) Yes, I really liked this competition. I wish I had started sooner because I have some other caps I would have liked to work on. Maybe I'll do them later.
All so gorgeous! After the competition would I be able to use one (or two)? Just so much trouble choosing...
Thank you, I'm glad you like :) All of the ones I enter here are snaggable. You can use as many of them as you'd like. You can even use all of them if you want :)
Eeeghaggh. Guh. Lovely. =)

And I agree. About him having a dark, 'tortured' side- he isn't all fluffy and silly and foppish. =) I would /so/ have entered this contest, but I was at the coast. =/

You did a lovely job and deserved your wins. =)
Thank you! Marcus definitely is pleasant eye candy isn't he? lol ;) I wish you could have entered also, because you make great icons :)
