Awards and nominations, yay!

Recently I participated in my first icon challenge: Challenge 122 "Bright and Shiny" at whedon_elite. I was amazed to win a third place with my Spuffy Storyteller icon (#4). Many thanks to everyone who voted for my icons! Here are all my challenge entries:

1 2 3 4

In the icons I used textures from colorfilter and burnedbreads.

In addition to being awarded third place, I also got the Banner Maker's Choice for my Spike soul icon (#3) by the lovely red_satin_doll. Here are the beautiful banners she made for me:


RSD made some very thoughtful comments on #3, saying among other things, "I love the scratched texture that reflects Spike/William itching to "crawl out" of his own skin". This observation inspired me to make a variant of the icon, adding the image of Spike with his scratched chest in Lessons. You can see it below, together with another variant and also a few variants of the Dawn icon I submitted for the challenge:

But there's more! Some lovely person nominated my Dawn icon (#2) for the No Rest for the Wicked Awards (wicked_awards):

And I got two other "Wicked" nominations: one for my most recent vidlet, Broad Daylight, and one for the story banner I made for sparrow2000's story Searching for Jim. Many thanks to the nice people who nominated me!! I intend to do some nominating of my own soon.

And one last thing to be proud of: I made Giles smile by making a Giles+tea icon set for summer_of_giles. It was my pleasure!
