alternates: challenge eight, round five  
Made more than one icon and chose the best to submit? Here you can post your submitted icon and any alternates, to share with others. People following along but are not in the round (eliminated or never joined) can also post their icons (if made with the challenge caps) here. :) In addition, this is also the place for more freeform discussion of iconmaking. Have at it!

I found it so very very hard deciding what to submit for this last challenge. I had very little inspiration to start with, but made a couple of icons, and then ended up changing my mind at the last minute. I've been lecturing and examining a lot, so it sort of sapped all my ideas! Anyway, I'm so chuffed to have come second :D

I love your Maul icon, probably my favorite of all the icons submitted in the finals. The contrast of the black and white with the red glow of his eyes really enhances the demonic look. I like the ship icon as well, both the submitted and the alternate. The crop on Leia looks a bit awkward to my eyes though.

Of the alternates, my favorites are 1, 5, and 8, though on 8 the edges of Vader's helmet are maybe blurred a little too much. I like 3, but it looks unbalanced somehow – maybe the light is a little too bright, or there should be more distance between it and the Death Star. Number 4 – I'm not a huge fan of solid white backgrounds, but you did a good job bringing out the detail in Chewbacca. Number 6 – this one is probably my least favorite since I can't even tell what it is.

*giving lots of comments to make up for not voting* Anyway, congratulations on second place!

Thank you very much!

*lol* Yes, 6 is a speeder, but I wasn't happy with what I'd done with it at all. I think I made it look a bit fuzzy... Thank you so much for the feedback :)
