Darla Icons  
Made for angelbtvs_theme I chose Darla as the character i wanted to iconise for this round. Darla has always been one of my favourite characters, she is so deliciously evil and has one of the most interesing character arcs over the course of both series. Plus i have a little bit of a girl crush on Julie Benz.



Vertical Levels Two faces Eating Unexpected Pain
Nerdy No Eyes Bad Habit Best Quality Plus One

#1 #2 #3 #4 #5

Artist's Choice #1 Artist's Choice #2 Artist's Choice #3 Artist's Choice #4 Artist's Choice #5



Defining Details: Clothes I remember seeing an interview with Julie Benz on the Angel DVD's about her describing Darla as, 'dressing to the nine's in every era.' Darla loves clothes, she takes pride in her appearance and look. So i tried to show that by choosing a range of outfits from a few different decades.

Hi. I really love your batch. Just one thing: for two faces, you were supposed to show the faces only. No body showing.

Would you mind correcting it?

I've already merged all the layers. I can't change it.

Another maker had to re-do the whole icon. I can't make any differences, I'm sorry. I'm afraid I have to ask you to change it. Sorry.

In the example that was shown it has the shoulder visible. If you had just wanted faces perhaps you should have given a better example.

But fine. I will change it.

It was an example to show what I meant as merging faces.

I CLEARLY stated not to show the body.

Plus, you showed a lot more than a shoulder, if we're looking at details.

Firstly, excellent character choice. Darla is awesome!
Secondly, these are really beautiful. I love the colouring and texture use. Faves are vertical levels, pain, best quality, bad habit, cat 1, ac 2 and ac 5 :)
