Again, a batch for inspired20in20 - this is all I do of late, it seems. This round's theme was Warm & cool and although my muse was gone for the past couple of weeks, I really, really wanted to do this round because I love this theme and because I've never really bothered with cool/blue icons. So this round actually challenged me very, very much. (I assume that's why my muse was gone for so long because I struggled with what I wanted to do for this round.)
I decided to take the inspiriation literally and did a set of cool (read: blue) and warm (read: orange) icons. After struggling a lot with the blue icons, I actually like them even more than the warm ones and I have a few that I legitimately favour among them.
I planned to claim "Once Upon a Time" initially but changed my mind before I started making any icons and chose "Slumdog Millionaire" instead. I love this movie so much and it has some beautiful cool and warm shots (and wonderful close-ups). And it's just an overall emotional movie with very sad and very happy scenes... but enough with the rambling already.
24 icons of Slumdog Millionaire under the cut...
Hope you enjoy! ♥

P/S: I read the first book of the "The Hunger Games" series when I was sick two weeks ago and I liked the book. It's a really fast read and the action is very good. The writing is not the best on earth but it wasn't that bad either. The characters overall were okay and I did like the female lead, Katniss. I didn't, however, really like her so-called "love interest", Peeta (what a name). I don't know why, he just came off very whiny, annoying and useless and I'm quite baffled by the undying love this guy seems to receive in the fandom. Meh. I guess I'm too old for this or something. :s
If someone knows of good meta on the political and social themes in these books, they're very welcome to guide me in the right direction. As for the other books, maybe I'll read the second one because of what I heard of it, I might actually enjoy another round in the arena. The third book though... I don't know yet. Maybe if I'm sick again someday (or when I want to tear my hair out over my thesis) I'll give it a try, too.
