2.6 Ask the maker pt.2

So, I've been asked about my "painted looks" in icons by esgeee and lady_kingsley and I wanted to briefly give you all a guide in how I go about (fake) painting in icons since my last guide has been written more than three years ago and a few things are changed since then!

2.2

Let me tell you two things: ART IS HARD. Legend of the Seeker has too many portrait shots. That's it. This is my set for 20muses, some icons make me proud some other not so much, but after more than a year of doing nothing it's getting better and better.
Comments and critiques are welcome this time around (they usually always are, but I forget to state it because I'm a lazy woman with too many things to do at the same time).
Inspiration came MAINLY from the atmosphere of each artist; I went and looked at more painting (and fell a bit for Richard Whadcock...)
Anyway, preview time!
