Week 33 - Day of the Dead Entries

Here are my entries. This was a difficult contest. Like many others said, getting that red out was tough. I used the require blue square in icon #1. I think I either set it on burn, or color. I don't remember. I also may have used it in the Lennier icon. I don't remember that either.

Edited: To add the Garibaldi icon. I also switched the orders of icons 3 and 4. The Garibaldi icon used the blue square on Multiply, I think it was.

Those are all lovely, but I really like number 4!
Before I joined this community I really limited myself to only making icons of my favourite characters, so it's been a nice stretch to mess with some others, and see the way others' icons can remind you of the vastness of detail the show has.
Thank you :) I left the red in #4, because it reminded of all the blood on Morden's hands. And I like the way the merge of his two images came out. My favorite is the Adira icon. The icon is sort of vintage looking and the poem suits her and the icon perfectly :) I tend to like making icons of people/aliens/topics that aren't the main characters. I like them because they're not the same as others even though they aren't as popular. I also prefer objects to characters, but there aren't as many caps for those.
