20 Derek Hale Icons  


For round 42 of character20n20.

Omg, this batch is finally done. FINALLY. I feel like I've been slaving over this forever, but I don't even care because I'm ridiculously proud of all my icons. Even the Category ones, although monochromatic icons are really hard for me and I feel like they're all awful. I tried to focus more on composition and text use in here, because those are things I really want to improve on. Also light textures. I found them. And screen textures. I found those too. And then I used and abused them to my heart's content, and it was fun. I have no regrets (cue evil laughter now). I think it's safe to say you'll be seeing a lot of light and screen textures from me in the future. And text, because jfc text is too much fun. I want to use it ALL THE TIME NOW.

And that's my ramble. Also, I got lazy and didn't make textless alternates. I have no problem taking the text off if you'd like to use the textless version. Please, just ask me and I'll get it done right away. I will not be offended in any way because seriously, you're still using an icon of mine. I'll be ecstatic :P

These are stunning, I really love your texture use and bold colorings! Looking up, Profile, Color1&3 and pretty much everything in the acs (esp. ac2, just wow at the composition and lighting) are my favorites. Fantastic set!

Thank you so so much! I'm actually really happy you liked Looking Up and Profile since I wasn't really sure about those! Same with Cat 1 too, XD

And thanks for the compliments on texture and coloring. I'm trying to improve on those (and composition), so this entire comment just makes me ridiculously happy!

Loving the colors! My favorite icon is the Vintage one! So pretty and elegant *u*
Becky: Teen Wolf - Derek Sterek bluehalesmoon on February 17th, 2013 02:30 am (UTC)
I got very color happy when making these icons :P

And I'm so happy you liked that one! I wasn't really sure about it, and it was kind of made with the whole "slap a bunch of textures on under a b&w gradient and see what happens" process, so I'm glad it turned out!

Great post! Love the coloring on heart, looking up, profile and ac3.

Oh these are awesome! I love the text work in #3, it works particularly well with the crop, and the lighting in #8 is beautiful. AC#3 and AC#5 are also gorgeous, stunning lighting and perfect texture work.
Becky: Teen Wolf - Derek who's the alpha nowhalesmoon on February 26th, 2013 04:33 am (UTC)
Thank you so so much! This comment is all kinds of awesome, because #3 is my favorite, and I've been working on my lighting and coloring, so this just makes me so happy. Thank you again :D

There are a lot of people iconning him but I still can't seem to get enough :P
The crops on cold, heart and ac4 are really pretty and I also really like the text on from behind and ac1. The dichotomy between Derek's expression and the warm coloring in Cat2 is surprising but works well with the lighting you went for. Also, I saw the link to this post on boxedcolors but when I saw ac2 (and it's eye-catching mix of colour and b&w) I realised that this was actually an older post that I'd been meaning to comment on for a while (I'm at Uni now but the tab is probably still open on my laptop at home from a few weeks ago when you first posted these, I'm awful like that :P)

Anyway, better late than never right? These are some truly gorgeous icons, great post :)

adfjakldfjaldskja thank youuuuuu! This comment is so awesome, I can't even :D

And haha! I didn't even think about his expression vs the color in Cat2. I just wanted to make a red icon, and the wall behind him was already red, so that's how that happened, but I'm glad it worked!

I'm so glad you liked them! Thank you!

beautiful icons ♥
I love all them, especially vintage, the use of the texture is perfect.
*Can I ask you where I can find the texture that you used on vintage?*
Becky: Teen Wolf - Derek who's the alpha nowhalesmoon on March 4th, 2013 05:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! The textures used in vintage are these (resized down to 100x100 of course :P )

The last one was rotated, and they were all put under a black and white and then a dark brown gradient (the latter with the opacity way way down). The textures are by mm3butterfly and you can find them here.
liightwood: Teen Wolf - Heartbreakfullhouse_10 on March 1st, 2013 11:50 pm (UTC)
Wow, great set!
Favourite is definetly From Behind, I love the cap you used here and the work on the colors! It looks fantastic! I'm really glad you won with this one ^o^
I also really love Cat 3: amazing crop, it looks really good, and I'm a bit in love with the blue tone you made here ;-)
aaaand AC3 is another I like: lovely texture use <3
Becky: Teen Wolf - Derek the beast insidehalesmoon on March 4th, 2013 05:18 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm kind of glad I won that one too, because it's one of my favorites of the whole bunch, so this comment means the world to me! XD

And ajdflakdjfalsd, I'm just happy you liked my icons because I adore yours and this is just awesome! Thank you so much!
