Initially I wrote up long explanations for each icon, my thought process, some links to the textures I used, etc, but after my browser crashed 3 times and I kept losing what I'd written, I realized I should stop tempting fate and just post the darn thing. I'm happy to answer any questions about the icons or texture credits, though!


This is my first time iconning Hannibal! It is a really, really pretty show. Let me know what you think! :D

PS. Ask the Maker tutorials are still coming! Slowly but surely :D

There's so much to say and I don't even know where to begin. First of all, this may be one of the best Hannibal icon posts I've ever seen. Each icon is already beautiful at first sight, but it's even better going back and looking at it longer because I start to notice new things you've done and elements you've added in.

First of all, I'm snagging 1 because it's the most flawless Beverly icon I've ever seen, and the Hannibal icon community can always use more wonderful icons of her. The colors and shadows are just beautiful.

I absolutely love the effect you worked with in 2, making GJH almost invisible but still hovering and influencing Abigail, the clear subject of the icon. So nicely done. Wonderful stock use on 4 and 5, and looking at 5 for a third time, I now realize that Will's silhoutte is in the back (bringing up what I first mentioned, which is such fun because these are like little riddles, which I'm sure was not your intention but maybe it just takes me longer to process the visuals). The beautiful crop and extreme lighting in 6 are just mindblowing. This really caught my eye when I first skimmed the post. I also like how the paint textures in 8 look like the flames of hell licking the edges of Hannibal and the couch, which is so appropriate considering the way Mad views Hannibal in his office. I love the slightly more matte coloring in 12 and the font use for those block letters is perfect! 16 has a really wonderful grungy, painted look, and the yellowish green and blue hues complement one another very well.

As for alternates, to be honest, when I first saw 21 and 23 at A-I I knew they had to be yours! The way you work with colors and lighting is just so distinct. And 27 is wonderful, especially with that paint texture/brush use and the fonts you chose.

I'm so happy you decided to make Hannibal icons, and hopefully this is only the beginning!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Oh my gosh, this comment just MELTED MY HEART :) Thank you so, so much! I love that you are thinking about the icons, because I put a lot of thought into them while I make them! I'm so glad that you like them! I'm always surprised when people can recognize my icons at a-i but that's really cool that you did :D I hope I end up making more Hannibal icons too! Thank you again for this amazing comment, you really put a big smile on my face!

wow, this is beyond perfection, you...making hannibal icons. OMG.
i think the happy dance isn't enough for a momento like this.

Well, the point is, this post is amazing. all the icons are so pretty, but also, so connected to the series, and the characters.
There is A LOT of "script" beyond the icon. And i really love it.
I couldn't choose just a few, i think everything here is so pretty and ....wow.

I really like the contrast you have in these, and the second and last alternate really caught my eye as well.

This batch is breathtaking and I meant to comment to this earlier but it seems I didn't after all, so have a random week late comment instead :>

anyway I LOVE ALL OF THESE! Your texture use is just perfect and so creative and did I mention perfect?? *__* The compositions, coloring and overall looks are all kinds of amazing. But my favorites are probably 3 (fantastic lighting, I love how vibrant it is and yet there are the dark mysterious shadows on his face, amazing look!), 4 (whaaaat how is this possible, incredible blending of stock and cap there), 5 (I love how minimal and complex this is at the same time - all the composition elements are in perfect harmony so the overall look is very peaceful and immaculate), 6 (omg I do realize I'm just listing them all now ;__; but really, stellar bw with perfect contrast, very intense!), 9 (again with the flawless bw thing and OMG THIS COMPOSITION. I think this is among the most masterful blocking icons I've ever seen. I can't believe how many blocks you've managed to put in it while still maintaining clarity. A+ icon, I'll just worship it for the rest of the day and wish I was in the Hannibal fandom so I could use it), 11 (this texture is one of my favorites and you did an amazing job with it - love how well she blends with it), 16 (unf flawless coloring and I envy anyone who can make paintingy textures work like this *__*), 18 (what is this sorcery?? The composition, the text, the deep monochromes, omg no way I can handle this much awesome at once), aaannd 27 (so gorgeous and artistic!). But even those I didn't list are stellar. I totally agree with burntheflaws, if this isn't among the best Hannibal icon posts there are then I don't what is!
