alternates: challenge seven, 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!

Submitted: neg space icon 2b other icon 2e

Alternates for negative space:

1.neg space icon 1a 2. neg space icon 2a

Alternates for icons from gallery:

1.other icon 1b 2.other icon 2f

I wasn't sure with my icons this time. I knew I wanted Han for the negative space one, but found it hard to choose, and I thought Yoda worked better than my Mace for the gallery icon, but wasn't sure on Yoda's colouring.

I think it was a wise choice to pick the b/w Han, the deep contrast there works better in b/w. I also think your carbonized-Han icon is a very creative way to do negative space! As far as the gallery icons, I like them both, I just wish they had more color (they look rather muted, and not purposefully so, if that makes any sense). :)

Thank you very much! I found it hard doing something interesting with the gallery caps this time. I think I got the atmosphere right for Yoda, but you're right that I didn't do so well on the colouring there... I wonder whether I should have added another source of light and done something a bit zingier with it. Mace was really hard - I just couldn't get a good balance between the light and dark areas!
