20 icons of Fullmetal Alchemist's Roy Mustang for [community profile] fandom20in20's Round 13. This is a hodgepodge of experimentation, as the last time I made icons was in, um, February :|

(I'm going to Singapore next week, so I apologize in advance if I take too long replying to comments!)

Very nice set! I particulary like Country, it's gorgeous, and all the Category icons. AC2 is really cool too.

These are amazing! :D I think my favorites are Shishou, AC#2 and AC#3: the cropping, text and coloring fit together so well.

Thease are a seriously impressive set of icons. I *adore* your Blue Sky set. Your colouring is seriously to kill for. Your text yse on the AC set is also pretty impressive.

As for your catagory icons I think Nimiya is the stand out one (for me, anyway) because your composition is seriously lovely.

♥ the colouring. I'm so not going to comment on colouring on this set 'cause ithink all of them are brilliant, srsly, so vibrant and pretty.

I'm more and more tempted to see this anime but how can i expect to like it when i fear it will not live up to what you've shown me?!


my favourite themes: country, birds, beautiful, nimya, journey, shishou, traveler... yes all of those. do ignore the fact that it would have been easier to say that I like but kind of can live without (for a little while, not much longer than that) the others unmentioned above... <- can't comment on each icon 'cause i don't have enough hours in the year to wax poetry (which i've no idea how to do) and just laud them to the maximum possible.

the theme is lovely, absolutely lovely. my fav ourite is 1, 2, 3 & 5 tied. 4th would be a close second (what do you mean that 4 way tie is not really done? pfft!)

ac. guh! 1st, 2nd 5th are stunning, love the use of text with the images. 4th is hilarious. and 3rd ithoguht itwas harry potter for a second there. it's just missing the glasses and now that i look the want but yes. so darn pretty. really, too pretty. one of my favourite sets of all time. *sighs*

so how can i watch alchemy now that I know i won't like it due to the expectatives being so high?!?! <- tricky question i realize.
