Public Service Announcement. [13 May 2006|04:55pm]
At the moment, I'm not entirely sure as to the fate of this lovely icon journal which has served me so well since last July.

The fact of the matter is that two of the most talented iconmakers I know (regen & spaced_oddity) and I have started a shared icon community.

apparating.

If you like my icons, please join it. I may still post here, but at the moment, I don't know if it's worth it to post the same set of icons in two separate places.

Thank you for your support. ♥

Icon Post #12; Doctor Who (Tooth and Claw). [28 Apr 2006|01:42am]
So, my dears, today I bring you more Doctor Who, because I am hopelessly addicted. & omg, I will have a new episode to cap/icon every week! gsdkljgkklsdgklgfsd;gksgdgd.;gsjlg, etc. :DDDDD (Aren't you excited? I know I am!)

Before I post the icon, I'd like to give a shoutout (rotfl) to unrulygarden, who I tend to make look at my icons + give me opinions on. And, who, furthermore recommended AlphaMack AOE as a good font. As you might see, I got kind of addicted. :/

Finally, I apologise if these are kind of lame. I try to be funny. Sometimes it works, and sometimes, no. Just no.

Edit: Also, because I definitely meant to include this originally: if you like these, and you want to check out more of my Doctor Who icons, here's my set for Children in Need, The Christmas Invasion & New Earth. :D

    Icon Post #11; Doctor Who (Children in Need, The Christmas Invasion, New Earth). [22 Apr 2006|08:20pm]
    I'd like to make it very clear that this post wouldn't have happened without the wonderment of spaced_oddity, who, besides being superb at icons & graphics in general (zaphod_bb, pimpity pimp), is a fantastic friend, and can be held completely responsible for getting me addicted to Doctor Who. Oh, Lisa, curse you & your wonderful taste!

    In short, I'd like to dedicate this set to spaced_oddity. Thank you, dear. You've gotten me onto something wonderful! (And when I say "in short", I mean it. That's all the rambling on I need to do.)

    Icon Post #10; Fruits Basket, A Hard Day's Night, Rufus Wainwright, Veronica Mars, etc. [14 Mar 2006|01:16am]
    Remember back in December, when I was on a roll, and posted about three icon sets in a fairly short time? That was fun. Of course, to make up for it, I've unintentionally gone months without posting a thing. School has eaten me whole, you see. So, hey, guess what? For icon post #10 (it's a mini-landmark of sorts!), I've decided to unload all of the extra icons I have. Some of them were made especially to post, and others have been kicking around for a while.

    Let me just tell you guys that I was amazed at the response to my last post. I made a small set of icons in a manner of hours, along with a mediocre wallpaper, and got the most comments I've ever gotten on an icon post. So, thank you for that. You sure know how to make a girl feel special. :] (Also, for anyone interested, I definitely plan on making more Brokeback Mountain icons once the DVD comes out, whenever that will be, and I can cap it.)

    You'll notice in this gigantic set that there's very little use of text, because a long time ago, we used to be friends but I haven't talked to it lately at all I have a lot of trouble with text, etc. However, to get myself back into it, I've just made two claims at abc_icons: Little Britain & The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Which will go nicely with my Rufus Wainwright set, which was also for abc_icons. So, look forward to that? (I'm going to be getting on those sets soon-- I have lots of free time, as Ontario college professors are on strike. Which is not as awesome as it may sound.)

    Today's selection is pretty eclectic, as I'm sure you'll notice. I hope everyone can find something they'll like.

    Icon Post #9; Brokeback Mountain [30 Dec 2005|03:44am]
    I finally got to see Brokeback Mountain tonight. And I had enough trouble talking about it in my personal LJ, so suffice it to say, it's absolutely brilliant & heartbreaking. I really, really must see it again soon. & I'm probably going to go out & buy the book tomorrow, if I can find it. Oh, obsessions.

    But-- wow. Obsessions. I usually make two, maybe three icons at a time. More if I'm feeling particularly... whatever the state of mind is. Creative, I guess. But, just since I've gotten home, or, more specifically, since I sat down at this computer about three & a half hours ago, I've made an icon set. And I quite like all the icons. :O They're textless, because I favour that recently. (Text is hit-&-miss, I find. And not always necessary.)

    So, I hope you guys like them, too.

    (Also, what is up with this? I am posting frequently! It must be the Christmas holidays thing. Which are almost over, sobs.)

    Edit (December 31st, 12:12 am): Okay, adding something to this post-- a wallpaper! Now, don't expect anything stunning, as I'm actually really terrible at wallpapers. Sorry about that. :/

    Icon Post #8; Little Britain (Text-Only) [26 Dec 2005|11:11pm]
    Merry (Belated) Christmas, to everyone who celebrates it! I hope it was a good one for all of you-- I know it was a good one for me. I also know that I got the Little Britain Series One DVDs (among other things)! Thus, just over the past couple of hours, I have whipped up (?!?!?!) fourteen text-only icons, with Narrator!quotes from the first four episodes. Because I know that I love Tom Baker as the Narrator. I can only hope that you do, too.

    These are actually the first text-only icons I've ever made. And I chose to use Cooper Black as my font. Big surprise. In any case, they were good practice, if nothing else. And... I hope there's something else.

    Don't mind me; my brain's broken.

    In any case...

    Icon Post #7; Little Britain / Rufus Wainwright [17 Dec 2005|03:37am]
    Another icon set already? Gasp! Shock! Exclaim!

    I've very recently gotten obsessed with Little Britain. I've only seen series one (because, here in Canada, that's all that's available on DVD), but I am downloading a clip from series two as I type this. 70% done, which means that I only have a few more hours to wait. (Have I ever mentioned here how much I hate dialup?) So-- today, I have a few Little Britain icons to share. Exciting! ♥ They're from publicity photos, and from the polaroids from the official website, because I have to wait until Christmas to get the DVDs. (But, I suppose that's not too long to wait, is it?)

    Then-- okay, Rufus Wainwright. I think anyone who follows this journal knows that I worship the man, and dream of being his best friend one day & living in a mansion with him and about four of my friends. ... well, okay, maybe you didn't know that last part. But the first part's a little obvious. So, there are Rufus icons. Eeee.

    I love parts of these two sets. Because I tried out new things, I played with things, and-- above all-- I had fun. That's the important part, kids. Having fun. :D

    So, you have fun looking at these, okay?

    Icon Post #6; Fruits Basket / Harry Potter | Wallpaper Post #1; Spuffy [02 Dec 2005|01:20am]
    Eee, another set! Exciting! (If you consider a "set" a group of icons pertaining to one fandom, then this is two sets! Even more exciting!)

    So, today we have Fruits Basket & Harry Potter icons. How are the two fandoms related? They're not, that's how. I'm really excited about this set, actually. I've been working on these icons for quite some time, now. Particularly the Furuba ones-- the HP ones, I only started after I saw GoF. (Which, if you haven't seen it yet, was brilliant, even despite my noticing everything that wasn't entirely canon. Geek!)

    Actually, it's rather odd, because this is the first actual HP set I've ever made. And I've been in the fandom for longer than I've been on LJ. I guess, as much as I've loved each of the other movies individually (except, when I look back on the first two now, they pale in comparison to PoA & GoF), this is the first one to inspire me. Also, there are so, so many images available for this one. More than I found for the others. Or maybe I just wasn't looking.

    I'm sorry to anyone who wants to see icons using screencaps-- most of these are from promotional things. Posters, stills, etc. But I think they turned out rather well.

    So, yeah.

    Oh! Oh! I also have a wallpaper. I made it quite some time ago now, but I should share it. Before I forget about it again. Spike & Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Eee! :D

    One more thing, not really related at all-- request post. Knock yourselves out!

    Icon Post #5: Rufus Wainwright for abc_icons. [29 Sep 2005|12:20am]
    Eeee, finally done this set for abc_icons, which I've been working on for way too long. Some of the letters were impossible to think of ideas for. I was only able to think of some of them with the help of the most lovely spaced_oddity. (Thanks to her!)

    I really quite adore this set, and I hope you guys do, too. ♥! Rufus Wainwright is such a lovely person to make an iconset of. And I'm going to Montreal to see him on November 6th! :D Quite excited about that.

    Now that I'm done these, you can expect more frequent posts, because I have a whole lot of other icons I've made. Plus, I'm going to have to start making Lost icons if I get the first season on DVD for my birthday, which I hope I do. :]]]]

    Icon Post #4; Anime (Fruits Basket / Gravitation / Naruto / Tsubasa) [18 Aug 2005|03:33pm]
    For those of you who had already long since purchased extra userpics before LJ decided to be superb and increase them to a hundred, you know how exciting it's been to fill up those fifty extra spaces. Though, also quite overwhelming. I've been making icons obsessively, for myself, but I realized that since I'd put a great deal of effort into them-- colours & light textures for most, then even more for a select few-- I might as well make them a set. As well, I just love iconposting. It's kind of an addiction of mine.

    This set consists of anime icons, because I do love me some anime. And yay, this is my first anime set in triptochinatown! That's exciting, isn't it?

    ... shut up, it's exciting for me.

    Tons of Naruto because I made my brother lend me the burned discs of it, so I have the first 101 episodes on my computer (oh, how you wish that I had made icons for episode 101. It's the best episode ever, after all.) Then there's some Tsubasa, Gravitation, Fruits Basket & so on. Anime that I just adore & which is heartwarming, etc.

    (I actually really enjoy writing these rambly parts before I post my icons. It gives you guys a bit of insight into me. Which could be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. :D)

    Icon Post #3; Gwyneth Paltrow. [12 Aug 2005|04:40pm]
    Today, rather than following my own trend of making Dead Like Me icons, I opt to bring you something different: ten icons of Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Why Gwyneth, you ask? Well, first off, I have a great many pictures of her, as I use her as the play-by (PB) for Fleur Delacour in two Harry Potter roleplaying games. Secondly, she's absolutely gorgeous. Stunning. Thus, she was very easy to make pretty icons of.

    In this set, all of which I made today (this is a rarity), I overdosed a bit on light textures. After all, last night, I searched LJ in hopes of finding a certain kind of light filter, and I found a wonderful set. (Credit can be found at the end of this post.) You'll also noticed that only two of the ten icons have any text on them. This is because I couldn't think of anything for them to say, and I didn't feel the need to dig for anything. Rather than having a few icons that said, "Gwyneth", or some such, I chose to leave them blank. I feel that, even despite their lack of text, they look lovely and complete.

    Icon Post #2; Dead Like Me (2x03) [29 Jul 2005|05:03pm]
    My last set of Dead Like Me icons was well-enough received, so I thought I'd make more. Only one episode, this time, because when I was screencapping it, I went a little nuts. Hey, the whole part with Mason & Daisy drunk and frolicking about in Rube's apartment was adorable. I couldn't help myself. I tried to expand with the characters I'd icon. This, too, is Mason & George-heavy, but I added more Daisy, and a couple of Reggie, too. If I'd been able to find any really good caps for Roxy, I'd have had her too. Same goes for Rube. But at least I'm expanding. Because, really, I like most of the characters on DLM a lot. My preferences just tend to shine through.

    I can't decide on my OTP for Dead Like Me. I guess I don't need one, really, but I like having an OTP. Like Spike & Buffy in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They're my favourite. (Actually, I'll be making tons of BtVS icons eventually, besides the ones here, at my old icon journal.) In any case, as I was saying. I can't choose an OTP. Because I'm kind of pro-Mason/Daisy to a certain degree, because Mason's loved her for ages, but I'm also inclined towards Mason/George. Though I have yet to find any real evidence, which doesn't just seem platonic to me.

    Let's have a hand for me rambling on & on about absolutely nothing!

    Because the Dead Like Me Season Two DVDs call for screencapping and iconning, I did just that. For right now, it's only the first two episodes, and very centred around Mason & George, but you can be sure that'll change sometime. More episodes, and more icons of Rube, Roxy, Daisy, Reggie, and the rest. (Which is to say that I'm too lazy to list anyone else.)
