Hello and welcome to round #35: Flashback!
Presented in this post are several different techniques we've seen around the icon community through the years. The challenge is to represent as many of these styles into your post as possible. You're highly encouraged to keep true to your own style, while trying to incorporate the following styles to learn new techniques. There are no rules on how many different techniques you have to use.
Feeling adventurous? Reply to my comment and you'll be given:
• 2 styles that you have to combine.
• a list of 5 themes and 2 main colors to work with.
A new post can be found on 20insp_talk, I would appreciate your help here everyone. For each style we should find tips and tutorials for how to achieve that type of coloring and effect. These will be put into a master-post to help and inspire all members to try new things.
• You'll use this post as inspiration to complete your icons, we would love to see an explanation for the inspiration used.
• Your icon post must be public.
• Checking out other members post, leaving comments is highly appreciated.
• Deadline: 15th of August
