I'm back!!!!!!!!! *squee jump wiggle twitch squee* [03.07.2009 ; 12:09am]
[6] L Word
[12] True Blood
[14] High School Musical 3

It's true! It has been two years since I last iconned, and I have missed it immensely. Long story short, I lost my Photoshop and now have found it again, and what better way to waste the lazy summer days than to manipulate screencaps of all our favorite fandoms?

I apologize that this batch appears a little rusty; it has been a while. I'm getting the hang of it, though, and I'm working on updating all my credits and downloads and whatnot. It's a laborious process, coming back from the Livejournal dead.

In the past two years, of course, I have developed some new obsessions. House and Gilmore Girls, for example, have died, and the L Word and One Tree Hill have snuck in as replacements. {I can explain all the Shane icons. ...It's actually quite simple. I have a gigantic, insuppressible girl crush on her and I'm not afraid to admit it. In fact I hope you like Shane, too, because she's pretty much the only character I'm willing to icon.}

I finished all of True Blood season one in a single weekend. While that's disgusting, it is also good proof that the show is pretty damn good. (Pardon my mixed shipping-- I can't choose if I like Sam or Bill better. Hence traitor-shipping.)

Here is a little sampling of what I've been watching. Also, I refuse to accept any mockery of my High School Musical obsession. (Is it awful that after several viewings I still love that movie?)

[20] How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
[10] Veronica Mars
[22] Center Stage
[14] House

Hi all! Sorry it took me so long. Damn music camp! I did, in fact, have a wonderous time, thanks for asking, and now, onto more important things: icons!

I made these before I left but didn't have enough time to post them. Having spent the last 6 weeks away from a computer, I actually don't feel the need to use it all that much anymore, so chances are after this post you won't be hearing from me for a very long time. I'm sorry. I'm entering my hardest year of school, and I think it's a good idea to try and focus on a better use of my time. So sure, this is a welcome home post, but in a way, it is only another good-bye post. Enjoy! I only wish some of these were better!

Alright. This batch is really small, but frankly I haven't been inspired at all lately, and I wanted to get these posted and out of the way a) before I leave on summer vacation (which is tres, tres soon, and I still manage to continue to ignore my huge summer reading list) and b) to see if maybe some of your guys' feedback can push me back into some decent work and commitment.

I'm thinking, when I reach another big milestone, like perhaps 200 "Friend of"s, I'm going to do a solely request post, which should be fun. And on that note,

Happy 100! [29.05.2006 ; 10:32am]
[ mood | chungry ]

[20] Gilmore Girls
[20] House
[20] Pride and Prejudice
[20] Rent
[20] Veronica Mars

In celebration of reaching 100 "Friend of"s, I give you 100 icons! Consider these a token of my appreciation to all of you! To those of you that have always been supportive and helpful, thankyou thankyou thankyou. It means so much to me.

I must say, it was really difficult to get through this. I almost caved and gave up after I reached 80, but I held on and pulled through! As a result, a few of these are a little sloppy because of my impatience, but if I have to look at Photoshop ONE more time...

Hanyway, my Veronica Mars cherry has been popped! These are my first ever VM icons. I managed to rent and gobble up the entire first season in a month, and I'm completely hooked. That show has even taken House's place as number one top favorite.

I continue to experiment! I found that my new coloring style doesn't really go well with the Rent icons, so I'll bear that in mind for next time. I also hope the coloring and sharpness look okay. I can't really tell how everything is going to come out on my own computer, because the monitor is really old and dark, so I tend to really sharpen and vividly color things that, on any normal computer not from the stone ages, would make someone's eyes bleed. If bleeding occurs, retrieve medical help IMMEDIATELY.

[10] Gilmore Girls
[12] Pride and Prejudice

Because I simply CAN'T go a whole icon post without adding my two cents, today I'll start with a little pimpage:

Our very first House icon awards community just started up last week, so make sure, House fans, to check it out!

houseawardshouseawardshouseawardshouseawards

Also, visit My Icon Truth Meme! You can tell me what you REALLY think of my icons, good AND awful, and it's completely anonymous.

As for X-Men... Well... When that comes out, believe me, you will never hear the end of it. I can't even think about that trailer without having my heart pump ten times faster. I simply cannot wait, that movie is going to be so pimp. Until then, my little contribution of obsessed anxiety lies in these 20 100x100 creations.

I've also decided that I'm going to stop responding individually to comments. It will be really hard for me, because I so greatly appreciate your support and want to thank you profusely (in fact I'm pretty sure I'll break my new resolution and reply to a few of you, because I'm weak), but it takes up a lot of my time, and I'm very sorry guys, but I need to start getting a life. Pretty much, it's very simple:

If you take my things, and you like my work, or whatever, thankyou so so much, you have no idea how happy that makes me.

[12] Pride and Prejudice
[27] Rent
[6] House
[12] Gilmore Girls

Some quick comments, because I know how much you all care about what I think (humor me :o) :

~More and more I experiment and my style changes. Eventually I will master what I'm going for, but hey, I have to learn sometime, right? These will be remembered as the shakier years.

~Lately I haven't really been into the Photoshopping, so I hope THAT dry patch dies quickly; it's why this batch is so small. Weird... Maybe this obsession is finally dieing... :o(

~For those of you that have met Anthony Rapp on his book tour, I made you icons! :oP WHAT a nerd.

~Pride and Prejudice, meanwhile: be expecting many many more icons, because the obsession will never die and I have also downloaded an infinite number of caps for it.

~My House cherry has been popped! Yes, yes, my FIRST House icons EVER! I still have to figure out what I want to do with it, because I find iconning House quite difficult.

~AND Gilmore Girls. As usual. Yaaay. I really like some of these. Not all.

A pretty small batch, but I don't feel like waiting to make more [05.03.2006 ; 9:55am]

[34] Cold Mountain
[22] Rent

So, after about eight years of slaving away at it, I finally finished Cold Mountain, and thus my desire to see the movie again was renewed. I went out and rented it, and I don't think I've seen a single movie I haven't wanted to icon. I am... SO lame. I'm proud of these, though.

You'll also notice that I am experimenting even more with styles. The icons are getting a little lighter, more colorful and bright... I sort of like it. I hope you do too!

AND, in seeing Rent multiple times, I have developed: a) a greater appreciation for the Mimi/Roger relationship, b) a greater love for Joanne, and c) a MUCH greater appreciation for the Angel/Collins relationship. I know, how did I not fall in love with them the first time? I don't know. I'm weird. But they are both the coolest.

...I realize now that you don't care at all. Drat. Here are the icons, though, enjoy!

P.S. Oh yeah! We all are well aware of my problem-- my inability to NOT turn every screencap I can find into an icon. Well, I currently have downloaded 4,000 Rent screencaps, and things may begin to look ugly soon. You can definitely be expecting more of these. Also, if anyone wants to make a Rent request, by all means, let me know!

[78] Batman Begins
[56] Gilmore Girls

I watched Batman Begins for the second time a few weeks ago, and I enjoyed it immensely. I liked it a lot the first time I saw it, but in the coziness of my own living room for the second viewing, something snapped and I became obsessed! So I pulled a King Kong and turned every single screencap I could find into an icon, resulting in, once again, a lot of really useless icons that no one will ever want. Yaaay!

It really doesn't help that the movie was so dark; I found it quite difficult to make the images large enough to see, light enough to see, etc. Plus, I continue to experiment with brushes and the like, trying to stop making such plain icons that look like bases, but I'm really horrible at it. Yaaay.

Also, COMPLETELY ironically, for the first time ever I'm actually really proud of these Gilmore Girls icons! Funny how things work out.
