Thank you! Saved by you is my favorite from the whole batch. I never saw myself making something like Cat. 05, but I'm glad it worked out well. :)

Saved is incredible! It's flawless =D I played around with the angel wings but couldn't get it to work :( These challenges are great for inspiring new ideas.

Oh yeah, I agree with you. Challenges make you push yourself to work harder and come up with creative ideas. You can't make the same same stuff over and over.

What I like about that icon is (apart from the wings, obviously) is the background. It seems like it's the sky and they're both raising. Maybe it's just in my head :D That moment is one of my favorite between them, apart from the "thank you" after Ares saved Eve and Gabrielle.

If you're interested in the texture, I got it from a set made by joel_le. You can find it HERE :)

I love the background as well! It's what really draws your eyes in.

It was one of my favorite X/A moments as well. I was actually trying to make a manip out of this scene for my couple (Ares/Gabrielle) but it didn't work out too well lol.

I just downloaded this set to use for this challenge! I must have overlooked that texture XD Did you smudge the background?

I can't find the PSD anywhere. Meh

Yeah, I played with the brightness and contrast, added a selective color layer, copied some parts of the background and pasted them and smudged the background a little bit.

Great stuff! I especially like "Quote," "Anger," "Hot" and all the category ones.
