Monthlyinspo - Round 14: Film Noir

Hello, dears! How is it going?
I'm realizing this is my first (icon) post of the year, though I have made several graphics for various icontests but I haven't yet posted them here: I hope I'll remember to post them asap!
This is my first entry for monthlyinspo. Man, I love this community, it's so inspiring! But I usually don't have enough time anymore to make lots of icons for communities so it's hard I can manage to do something for this beautiful and inspiring community. I really can't explain why it's so hard to make lots of icons nowadays, I used to make even 40 icons in a day and now I can manage to finish a maximum of 5 graphics per day: it's very strange!
Anyway, going back to this challenge, it was about noir inspirations, so I decided to make not only icons inspired by noir films in techniques, but I chose pictures that reminded me of this genre, like photoshoots and screencaps from noir-ish productions. I tried my best to not make them all in chiaroscuro - it's like my favourite technique EVER - and I'm aware that some of them aren't very good, but I put all my efforts here and, as I said, some of them were really rushed because time is ticking! Anyway, hope you like them and that the overall result isn't that bad!
