a drop in the ocean; a change in the weather. i was praying that you and me might end up together  
As always I've put the 20inspirations challenge for as long as I could, so I had to make all the icons in one day:O anyway, I was really inspired by this round's theme (epitome). to be honest, I don't remember the last time I've enjoyed making icons this much and being so pleased with the results. I've experimented quite a lot and some icons may not look like 'me' so I'd love to know what you think:)
and I don't usually have lots of alts and post them but this time I got quite a lot:P
p.s. I'll edit in all the rambling/explanations for icons/asap, rn I just need to submit my batch to 20inspirations and go to bed<3

20inspirations: ROUND 10; EPITOME


01 - the vampire diariesdamon/elena. that scene in 2x08 when damon declares his love for elena is so touching and it sums up his love for her - he wants her to be happy, that is all. (photo)
02 - the vampire diariesdamon. damon had been the 'bad guy' for quite a long time but in se02 we got to see the real side of him. that quote breaks my heart, tbh. (icon)
03 - losteveryone. the finale was all about bringing the 'lost' characters together and the church scene is exactly that. they paired them all wrong, but ok. i still love Lost (words: reunite, closure)
04 - lostsawyer/kate. one of my most favorite otps of all time. i wanted to show how they always run from everything and kinda drew themselves apart, thus the blocking and the border.
05 - skinsgen 3. gen 3 seems the happiest skins generation for me now and they are all so awesome and i tried to convey that with ~sunny&vibrant coloring. the song used in the video also reminds me of skins (video)
06 - harry potterthe battle. in this icon i kinda summed up 'the battle' theme in 'harry potter': harry vs voldemort, hogwarts vs death eaters, good vs evil. (theme)
07 - harry potterharry. this is harry's moment before the final battle which was an 'epitome' for his character - it's what he has lived for. i also like the cap because it shows him rushing, trying to be a hero. (theme)
08 - harry potterron. i had such hard time thinking of an icon for ron. i din't want to show him as a comic relief because that's not the only thing his character is about (though there are lots of awesome caps showing that side of him). i wanted to go for something deeper and chose the 'we can end this' scene. i think it shows ron's courage and loyalty and that he's ready to fight till the very end. (word: angst)
09 - harry potterhermione. for hermione i wanted to show the two sides of her: being a diligent student and being a fierce fighter. (music)
10 - harry potterron/hermione. ron&hermione story is full of precious moments and i didn't really know which one to choose because they all are just amazing. i love the deluminator scene dh1 but this one, from dh2, makes me really teary. just look how they HOLD EACH OTHER. like they are the only ones left in the world, like those are the last seconds of their lives and they hold on to the most important thing ever - to each other. (word: close)
11 - doctor whorose. 'doomsday' is soo heartbreaking, woah. it was perfect in terms of rose's character though. how devastated she was when she had to part with the doctor, i can't even. then, he came back to her to leave another 'version' of him with rose. she loves him so, he clearly is everything to her.
12 - doctor whotenth doctor. well, here i wanted to depict the ~last moments of the tenth doctor. he clearly didn't want to die yet because there was so much left for him to do thus the worried/anxious look. a planet texture as a symbol of travelling through space and a clock texture symbolizes time that was running out for the doctor.(wallpaper)
13 - merlinarthur. i deliberately took the caps from 3x08 because that whole episode was mainly focused on arthur (if i remember things right). he was on a quest to save camelot and he was ready to sacrifice himself for the greater good. because that's who he is - noble, loyal, courageous, protective, caring. (theme)
14 - merlinmerlin. the fact that merlin is a wizard is pretty obvious so wanted to be somewhat more creative, lol. that hush thing merlin is doing is showing that he keeps a secret (his magic) and creates a mysterious feeling about his character, i guess. (theme)
15 - harry pottersnape. don't even start me on how amazing snape's character is. so complicated, misunderstood. lily was the love of his life and then the loss (=> devoid) of his life which he never got over. that scene breaks my heart into the million pieces (alan rickman deserves all the awards in this world, btw) and i couldn't imagine snape's epitome as anything else. (word: devoid)
16 - misfitssimon. i went for a simple icon here. i wanted to make the emphasis in the cap itself because that 'angle' kinda shows the 'rise' of the new simon. (i don't know really if this makes sense:D) (icon)
17 - fringepeter and walter. peter and walter's relationship is the one of the most amazing things on fringe (2nd best dynamic after peter/olivia, ofc). that scene when peter's holding on to his father just because he needs him, he loves him no matter what he did and he forgives him. oh (word: flashback)
18 - fringepeter. in se03 we learned that peter had some kind of a higher purpose or idk how to put it. anyways, he is connected with that machine so it made my choice. (texture)
19 - fringepeter/olivia. this ship WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE. they met when they were kids, clearly liked each other even then and understood each other perfectly and then fell in love so many years later. i can't really. flawless otp is flawless. (word: passage)
20 - skinschris/jal. what makes chris/jal so perfect is that they helped each other to get through and each of them had something the other lacked. in other words - they completed each other. (video)

I really enjoyed this round as well! It really gives a great feeling when all the icons you make turn out good!
That said - this batch turned out very good indeed! I especially love 1, 3, 6, 13, and 20! And all your alts are really gorgeous as well! :)

Love how you crammed so much text into 2 without it looking too crowded. And the contrast in the B/W is very nice and well-balanced!

Great work with the composition of 7. The yellow coloring and neg space are beautiful, and the textured feel of it is excellent!

Fantastic crop and coloring in the Simon icon. Very neat and clean and elegant!

Amazing balance of purple and blue in 18!

Your colouring is always gorgeous, the best thing about your icons. :) I like that you use so much violet and yellows.

#01 here stands out for me in this batch. I saved it to my inspiration folder.
But, #2, #6, #7, #11, #20 and #22 are really nice as well.
