Awards banners for Challenge 146, "Painted Hair", including Banner Maker's Choice - congratulations dixon, fassy, sweet_lyri, teragramm and prilou!  As with last round, the entries are just stunningly beautiful, in an eye-popping "how the **** do they do that, I can't even" throw up my hands kind of way.


To contrast the luminous beauty and brilliant colors of the icons, I chose a muted, grungy background image:

*Banner Maker's Choice: prilou's icon is different to every other entry, employing deep shadows and muted tones to evoke mystery and night, rather than the bold colors and bright lights of the other entries.  (Honorable mention to emmatheslayer's Tara icon and fassy's Black Widow icon; this was one of the most difficult rounds to choose a BMC yet.)

With deepest apologies for the delay - Challenge 145 awards banners for harlequinss_s, lookslikerain and sweet_lyri. Congratulations!

The entries have been knock-it-out-of-the-park gorgeous lately. Even more so than usual, if such a thing is possible.

ETA: the first post had the wrong banner for Banner Maker's Choice; that has been fixed now. Thank you freecat15!

*Banner Maker's Choice:I like the simpicity of it , the unconventional crop (it fits the theme of "center crop" and yet it is off-center at the same time).  I also love the soft, luminous palette of greys; and the fact that it resembles a fragment of an old newspaper or magazine photo torn from the page and slightly crumpled.
