Balm Icons: Rest & Be Soothed

Both ascadulineadept and amadareneko requested Balm/'This, too, is sacred' icons in my request post. I think that I did a better job on these Balm icons than I did on the Jasmine icons. I may try to revisit those sucky ones later. I'm still learning, and my goal is to learn at least one new technique with each batch. I really like the way these turned out.

I may be partial to Balm, though. While night_court sorted me as a Gentian adept, I think Balm would be an easy tie for me. Balm House really calls to me, so maybe it's just that I had better ideas with this one. As always, feel free to take, credit, & share - and feedback is always encouraged and savored reverently. :D

Oh yeah, I LOVE the Rod & Weal info page! Great reference. DON'T look anything up on Wikipedia - it's FULL of spoilers.

And feel free to let me know what you think of my icons, after you're all clarified. ;)

Thanks so much! I'm glad to know. :) I'm only sorry that my Jasmine ones weren't all that good. I'll keep trying to think of better ideas.

(PS: Eden is totally digging your icon)

yeah I get alot of comments on it, not sure if it's a squirrel (which I've told you the story about why I dislike squirrels) or a cat...but it's awful cute either way.

I LOVE my "sucky" Jasmine icon!!!! I think it is VERY well done!

That being said the Balm icons are gorgeous! I like #8 the best!

rotflmao -

Thanks! But I hope you know what I meant. ;) I wish I had more of a variety. Once I learn some more techniques, I want to revisit Jasmine and have some more options. ;)

Thank you so much! I like #8, too.

Beautifully done once again! The second and fourth are my favorites. Now, i just have to talk you into doing a set for Valerian! :D

Thank you so much! That fourth one is my very favorite, I think. I do plan on doing a Valerian. I'm collecting good photos at the moment. :)

I really like number 8, but I'm confused - are they made from a book, a movie...?
ahavah
Jul. 17th, 2006 05:38 pm (UTC)
Oh yes! These are inspired by my very favorite book series - the Kushiel's Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey. She had a trilogy that started with Kushiel's Dart, and has just released the first book in a new series that ties in. There's a little spoiler-free explanation here.
