    For "My best mood" I chose "gleeful", inspired by this JM quote about Spike (I think it's from a DVD extra):



    So I made a few icons of gleeful Spike moments, and a banner:





    Credits go to burnedbreads (textures), hdbuffy, and dafont

    I don't know if I'll manage to do the other prompts before the deadline, but in any case I've been enjoying this challenge. Many thanks to buffylover for initiating it, and everybody for their wonderful contributions -- I love them all.

    I can see them.

    I honestly don't know why you can't see them betta. Does anyone else have the same problem?

    I hope Double Dutchess doesn't mind me doing this. But I want to help.

    I tried to upload them on the image hosting I use.

    Can you see them now? if so make sure you thank the original Double Dutchess post.

    Of course I don't mind, buffylover. Thanks a lot for your help! I have no clue why betta can't see the pics in my post, but I hope she can see them in yours!

    Three observations:

    a) These are all stunning! I know I keep on saying this but I'm DEAD jealous.

    b) So many talented Dutch people! Who'd have thought it? Except for Mondrian, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Brueghel, Steen, de Kooning, Hals, Bosch, Escher etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum, what have the Dutch ever done for art?

    c) Betta can be scary sometimes!

    Betta:

    For some reason, I can't see Double Dutchess's banners...
    That's a shame! You'd like them. They're really good!

    I'm done!

    I had so much fun! on making these banners. So here we go!

    The best heroic moment. [3/3]

    My best heroic moment hands down 'The Gift'. Sacrificing yourself to save the world not just only her sister but the universe. And her reward was at peace in heaven hence, the idea with the doves and the vibrant colours.









    Until next time.

    OK, this is Best Mood divided into four different memes/banners, I guess?

    I'm not a precision kind of guy so this was a new territory for me but I enjoyed it very much!


    Best Mood - sullen

    Season 6 remains my favorite season for it's exploration of depression and the roughness of life. One of my favorite scenes is when Buffy reveals to everyone she was in fact in heaven. the gloominess in Buffy's voice, her friends' expressions- I cry every time. This is my first try at this style and I really like it. Hope you guys like it as well!







    My underachieving self has yet to earn banner privileges.

    That's a great set Josh, I like the style too.

    And buffylover, your heroic banners are beautiful, I love the pastel tints.

    I didn't manage to complete the second and third parts of the challenge, but if there are new challenges I will definitely try to find the time to participate again, even if it's only partially.

    Best mood - Intimacy


    (you can click if you want to have a peek at the larger versions)

    All resources are my own.


    There are moments throughout the show where the impact in the moment comes because of what we know about the depth of the relationships, what they know about each other. These characters have close dynamics and choose to be in each other's lives. It doesn't matter if it is familial, romantic or friendship based. Or if the moments are happy, sad, loving or filled with anger. The best thing about the show for me is how much these moments touch me because of the intimacy they share. I chose four dynamics and produced a pair of icons for each.

    I would have loved to do more and had scenes in mind for Giles/Buffy, Buffy/Angel, Willow/Tara too. There are just so many that I could have looked at because it is where the series excels I think. But I forgot how time consuming doing icons is (this is only the second time I've done a set) and with the HD versions available I couldn't resist getting new screengrabs for them all. Plus, I'm so rusty with fanart/photoshop I had to remind myself about even just basic colouring techniques. I'm sorry I didn't get on to doing either of the other two parts and I will definitely try to find the time to keep joining in, even if I don't manage more than a portion of the whole. I need to get back into the flow of it all (and will probably avoid icons again for a while, ha!). It has been great to see some more activity in this section of the site.

    Thank you for a very thought provoking and invigorating round! I would be happy to take on this round of questions! Are we doing placement/awards?

    That would be fantastic Josh!

    These set of questions are really entirely up to you! any requirements etc... It needs to be three questions.

    There is no rewards or feedback for these kinds of challenges, it was really just a nice way to get people to create again to try and inspire everyone, but If you wish to host rewards or even feedback IMO I would think it would be more suitable for the challenges like the old days your own professional thread.

There is a deadline for these set of memes/challenges because I would love for us as an art community to let someone else continue with their own specific sets of desired questions, if not I would just continue creating the lists of questions depending on the activity.

    "If people wish to do icons you can do more than one if you wish, for example, you could answer the question within a set of icons not just only one."
    The first set of questions by Josh are;

    Fandom(s); The Buffyverse, Game of Thrones, Veronica Mars

    1. Your top WTF?! Moment.

    2. Your most RELATABLE Moment.

    3. Your most DISAPPOINTING Moment.

    If you need any further explanation on the questions, feel free to contact me via PM!

    Deadline. (FOUR WEEKS) 17th September 2018 (Possible continuation per Stoney's request)




    Hope this round of questions will get you to come up with some amazing artwork and inspiration!


    Mods, I realize I'm posting message after message but I was afraid that people will miss my post. If you want me to delete the other one or edit this one into the other let me know!

    Nice questions, thanks Josh! I'll see what I can do, but it's going to be tough, in particular with Nina's challenge going on in parallel (and I'm already pressed for time anyway). So I support Stoney's request for a deadline extension!

    Great challenge! Although all my entries will have to be from Buffy as I have never seen Veronica Mars or Game of Thrones!

    So my first entry,

    Your Top WTF! Moment

    Was a hard choice in Buffy, because a few choices came to my mind. (I almost came close to doing a Passion/Jenny Calendar banner.) But then I thought of Restless. The Cheese Man, still my #1 WTF moment in Buffy because when you see him in that episode you think...WTF are you doing here? WTF is your purpose?!

    So yeah. Cheese Man is my top WTF moment in Buffy.

    Haha! The Cheese Man does raise a lot of questions to the point of people writing essays about his purpose. I believe Joss said in an interview that he had none whatsoever and was just there. Great job!
