Buffy - Season 2
Having time off work while I am healing is frustrating in many ways, as I am still both exhausted and coughing.  However the good thing is that I have been able to get a set of icons done for btvsats20in20

This set is for the two episodes called What's My Line (BtVS 2.09-2.10).  Here are my 3 teasers -

The song for the Catagory Set had to be a random song from my play list ... and this also shows that I do listen to other music rather than just James and GotR

The Monkees : "I'm A Believer"

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Love was out to get me
That's the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.

I thought love was more or less a given thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What's the use in tryin'?
All you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.

I used to have such a crush on Davy Jones!

I was so glad it was a Monkees song - I love their work. And, es, I can see where you are coming from with Davy Jones!

There are worse ways to spend your forced downtime! My favourites are your artist choice's 1, 3, and 5.
5th-Mar-2016 03:38 pm (UTC)
Thank you. It is nice, as ever, to do some slightly different scenes.
4th-Mar-2016 04:02 am (UTC)
Very nice set, I really like AC2 and AC3.
5th-Mar-2016 03:39 pm (UTC)
Thank you - especially AC2, as I was not particularly happy about how that eventually turned out.
6th-Mar-2016 04:05 am (UTC)
Excellent work! Wow!

7th-Mar-2016 01:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much
6th-Mar-2016 03:31 pm (UTC)
This is a great set.

I love your use of the Davy Jones song. :)
7th-Mar-2016 01:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you

The rules stated it could just be general if you want, but thought it was nice to pick a specific line ... and I got to hear the song in my mind more often!
6th-Mar-2016 10:38 pm (UTC)
Love especially your AC 1. Snagged it and C5
7th-Mar-2016 01:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you - I will admit they are a couple of my favourites.

These are very interesting. Smile is lovely, Cat 1 has a very good crop, angst is a lovely use of gradient or texture, and I like ac 1 a lot. :)

I grew up listening to Monkees reruns on tv!

I LOVE Content and Cat1 - the splash of color and design provided by the stained glass backgrounds is stunning, but it somehow doesn't overwhelm the figures, which have a real solidity and weight. (Was the stained glass in the caps or something you added? I honestly can't tell either way.)

I also love the retro look of AC3 (you know me and retro stylings) and AC5 is a very subtle little miracle of perspective. I love how we are peeking at Giles between the stacks of books, like you've brought me right into the scene!

Great claim! And these are beautiful. I really love how you interpreted the Category theme - you have to love The Monkees :)

I really love black, content, smile, far crop, not human, C1, C2, C5, AC1 and AC5. Lovely set :)
