Sooooooo... Long time, no see. :3 I'm taking the opportunity of having a working Internet connection right now to make a quick post with some recent icons. Almost all of these were made for the7days and the non-elite version 7by7 respectively. Hope you enjoy! ♥

→ 03 Atonement
→ 06 several James McAvoy movies, TV shows or Theatre Productions (Children of Dune, Macbeth, Becoming Jane, Penelope, Shakespeare Re-Told: Macbeth, X-Men)
→ 01 Amanda Seyfried
→ 07 Les Misérables
→ 07 Misfits

24 icons under the cut. ♥Collapse )
I realised I haven't made a single post since October which seems like... quite a long time. Then I realised I haven't really made that much icons since October to make a post here which seems... quite horrible. I had to change computers in November and this new one absolutely killed my muse. Everything looks so different, the touchpad feels different and for the first time since making icons I see a tremendous difference between my icons in PS and outside of it. It's like the colours are sucked out of the icon after saving anything (even when saving for web) and I don't know what to do about it. :c Changed the colour settings to those of my monitor and this seems to do the trick.

Anyway, I scraped together some icons - some new and some... rather old(ish) but not yet posted - to get a new post up and to show you there's still life in this community. :3

→ 03 Amanda Seyfried
→ 02 James McAvoy, Being Human (UK)
→ 01 Legend of the Seeker, Misfits, Sailor Moon
→ 02 The Pillars of the Earth
→ 01 The Vampire Diaries
→ 02 Veronica Mars, Titanic
→ 01 Big Fish, Atonement, Burlesque

Makes 20 icons in total. Under here.Collapse )
I welcome you to the newest episode of "Icons I still have sitting on my hard drive and that need to get posted", The Vampire Diaries and Once Upon a Time edition. Clearly, I can't make an icon post without Misfits, so there are a few of these in here as well. This post mainly contains icons I've made for the7days and ouat_elite, so it's likely you've seen a few of them already... but I made some fresh, new icons as well (and a new default icon for myself, too).

Here it goes:
→ 10 The Vampire Diaries (mostly Katherine for the7days's "Villain" challenge)
→ 6 Once Upon a Time
→ 4 Misfits
→ 2 Animation (Ratatouille and The Little Mermaid for cusped)
→ 2 Amanda Seyfried

Σ 26 icons in total. I'm all out of cut texts right now.Collapse )

I've got nothing much to say about this post... except that I seem to go through a Ewan McGregor phase at the moment (it's always kind of like James → Ewan → Jake → James → Ewan... etc.; and I watched Beginners which is why Ewan is my Scottish prince of the month now). Hence why there are basically almost only icons of Moulin Rouge in this post. And then there are a few Misfits icons thrown in for good measure that were still sitting on my hard drive, waiting to get posted. That's it, I don't feel like talking all that much today, so enjoy! ♥

→ 20 Moulin Rouge
→ 6 Misfits

When love is for the highest bidder, there can be no trust. Without trust, there is no love!Collapse )
Icon dump y'all! I had a few lot of icons still waiting to be posted... and here they are. So yes, this post is very random, again. There is a lot of Misfits (for the icon_talk anon battle, for the trope_overdosed rumble, for cusped etc. etc.) and a lot of random movies and TV shows I did for the aforementioned rumble, for some flash challenges and iconbattling. :3

→ 15 Misfits
→ o2 Once Upon a Time, Veronica Mars, Being Human (UK)
→ o1 Pushing Daisies, The Vampire Diaries
→ o3 Pride & Prejudice, The Hunger Games
→ o2 Sucker Punch
→ o1 Tristan + Isolde, Burlesque, Titanic, The Avengers, Brave, Penelope, The Notebook, Despicable Me, Lord of the Rings, 500 Days of Summer, Amanda Seyfried

42 icons in total under here...Collapse )
Um, yeah, another post for theiconquest. I promise I'll stop spamming your flist... maybe soon. I've done every quest in Chapter One and feel like I'm done for now, but there are still a few icons on the pile (icon-talk battle, my trope-overdosed icons etc. etc.). Okay, so, another small batch for theiconquest - the Sidequests this time. The first one was to use a certain colour palette in your icons - the chosen colour palette also affected the style of the icons (first palette concentrates on colouring, second one on composition/complexity). The second sidequest was all about fairytale motifs - yep, Simon is a unicorn now, deal with it. ;)

There's also a picspam I made for the current challenge at smashingart. The theme was "I want to go there" and for me that's the UK basically. So have a lot of beautiful shots of the English countryside. :3

→ 10 Legend of the Seeker (o1-o6, o8, 13, 17-18)
→ 06 Once Upon a Time (o7, o9-1o, 12, 15-16)
→ 02 Misfits (11, 14)
→ 01 Bright Star/Atonement picspam

You can get out of my chair.Collapse )

OMG first icon post here! *is so giddy* Okay guys, I made an icon community. Obviously. When I first started on Livejournal (years after starting making icons... and years after quitting making icons), I thought it would just be a place to randomly drop some graphics now and then to not clutter my personal blog. Then I moved my personal thoughts to LJ as well (because of reasons) and I started iconning again and cluttering my new-found personal journal with icons. As I'm not seeing this ending any time soon (you'll see why just shortly after this wall of text is done), I decided to make a community. People feel more comfortable following a comm and I'm totally understanding this. So, community.

I'm starting my very first post with a promotion. Most of you probably already know about "The Icon Quest". Those of you who don't: go check it out, it's lots of fun!

The Icon Quest is a graphics-centered interactive community.
Enter challenges, make icons, earn points, become the ultimate icon maker!

tell me more! | sign-up

It looks a bit overwhelming at first, but it's a wonderful creative outlet, very inspirational and, if you want, interactive. You can sign up at guilds (but you don't have to!) and you get randomly thrown into them. You can find me at the mysterious underground (we're ~The Resistance) and there are lots of lovely people there! ♥

And while we're at it, let me finally get to my first icon post, lol. The first theme was "Adventure" and I've recently started and finished "Legend of the Seeker". So... I iconned this for my first attempt. (More thoughts on the show probably soon at my - now icon-free - journal.)

→ 28 Legend of the Seeker

Well, if you're going to need to rescue every damsel in distress, there's no time to waste.Collapse )
