And the category icons where really hard. Bright colors + Vampire Knight = Hard.
Anyway, I love the art from Vampire Knight. It's so mysterious and deep. I have yet to catch up with the manga... yet another seires I have to read. I prefer Zero/Yuuki to Kaname/Yuuki, but there are so many lovely Kaname/Yuuki scans too, I kept wondering if I should have picked general series instead of just Zero/Yuuki. I think I used ever scan of Zero/Yuuki that I had, plus I did some manipulations on a few of these.
Out of the Box
02 - Amethyst is Feberuary's birthstone
03 - Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday to celebrate rembering dead family and friends
06 - The VK chibis are as close to funny as I could find XD
08 - I do not to animated icons... Thus the pause at the end.
11-15 - Slappng sunglasses on a vampire does not mean that the vampire can go out in the sun, but it does make Zero very sexy. And I actually went to the trouble of choosing different glasses for each icon, so that they'd match up and look more natural.
16-20 - I wanted the icons to tell a story. I was going for a tradgedy like Romeo and Juliet where they're forbidden to be friends, but they fall in love and have a secret relationship.
