1. Inspired by calikalie. I am a huge fan of her icons. I tried to grasp her creative use of borders and her soft colouring. I know she uses a lot of strong hues too, but I was inspired by the softer icons now.
2. Inspired by vetica. I also really admire his work. His use of sharpening and his soft sepias are breath-taking. I also sharpened twice the amount than what I usually do on this icon.
