Excuse the fail. ( ・_・) ゝ I haven't made icons in years; heh, I need more practice and it shows through the 102394012983402934 alternates unposted. This was mostly an experimental batch to get into the swing of things again. :)
In any case, this is my first 20in20, and homg the themes were difficult for me this time around. ^ ^;; I wanted to give myself the time to revise and edit, but school and work caught up with me. 'Twas fun anyway. 8D

This film is... everything. I love every part of it. I cry every time I watch it, too. :x I love all of the relationships, but Takaki's and Akari's is especially dear. I basically had the film OST playing in a loop on my iTunes as I was making these.

OTP QUOTES: One of the said OST songs playing on loop. As soon as I saw "OTP quote," I pretty much knew I was going to use it.
CLOSE-UPS: Ah, I had so many ideas for this one, but decided to go with this scene. I'll post the rejects at a later time, possibly. :V
HUMOR: Totally. Lost. - -" This was the only remotely humorous scene I could really think of.
CATEGORY: I sort of wanted to create the feeling of a deteriorating relationship, I guess. See if you can catch the subtle details...?
AC: I think these came out better than the themed ones; it really helped me to grasp a style without worrying about whether or not I was conveying the theme. ^ ^

Check out my awards?

Congrats on finishing :D Really lovely icons, I like how experimental you are with your cropping, esp. in the category set. That category set is wonderful, though, I think you captured their emotion perfectly well - I felt a bit sad looking at them even before reading your description of the category XD; My favourite is Serendipity though, lovely cropping and gorgeous colours in that one!

Hmmm I need to watch this now.

Thanks for participating :D!

Edit, since your PM is disabled I have to post this here, sorry ;A; But I think you're gonna have to change your Close Up icon. Close up means a zoomed in shot of your pairing, whether it be their face or other body parts. Example seen in my current userpic. I see you do a wonderful job of playing around with cropping, so I'd love to see you try this close up crop :D! It would be much appreciated if you make this change ♥
