10 Hotarubi no Mori e Icons for am_rumble

I was so excited to make Hotarubi no Mori e icons for am_rumble's second Mini Round... I'm just glad I was able to finish in time though. RL has been really packed for me lately XD

Although some of the themes were difficult, I enjoyed trying to interpret the themes to fit Hotarubi no Mori e, which is perhaps the sweetest little oneshot/short movie ever. Since I have screencaps of the series now, I just can't stop making icons for it :3


01 Michael 02 Raphael 03 Gabriel 04 Uriel 05 Mattatron
06 Lucifer 07 Astaroth 08 Sonneillion 09 Mammon 10 Pesado

01 - To represent kindness in this icon, I chose the scene where Gin rescues Hotaru when she gets lost.
02 - Incorperating blue into my icon... I had no problem with that XD
03 - I honestly thought incorperating bold colors was going to be hard, but "If Kay can do it, so can I!" was my mindset, and voila! Thanks Kay <33
04 - To represent destiny, I chose this scene because those red strings in the background had always reminded me of the red string of fate anyway~
05 - Yay, text! I had fun playing with the crop in this one too.
06 - Light and dark... is anybody shocked that I iconned this scene? I started out in the green range, but it turned blue... surprise!
07 - Mirrored image was fun, but I took a literal interpretation and tried to make the icon actually look like a mirror... which would be a lot better if Gin was facing his reflection. LOL.
08 - Hatered was really hard to work in as a theme because there are no haters in this story. So I used my imagination, and found an awesome screencap that worked for me. But the funny thing is, the self-hate icon is sitting right next to the self-love icon. See?
09 - Greed through money/material wealth. This was ultimately the hardest theme to work with. Interpretation is a wonderful thing.
10 - Chaotic. Since I fail at creative composition, I just chose a busy screencap and threw some extra light textures in there. LOL, I'm so bad with dark colored icons XD
