Gone!

Sadly this icon community is now closed. You may have got the hint as it's been 2 years since I last posted. Actually - closer to 3.

Unfortunately, I just don't have the time or inclination to make icons any more. I mostly use my default icon on LJ these days - seriously! And I have like 150! - and although I still dabble with Photoshop and make the odd one for my personal use, there's simply not enough output to warrant keeping this journal open. I'm like a real grownup now with a proper job and everything.

I'll still keep all the icons up on my webspace so feel free to take and credit.

Going through some of my older posts though, I noticed a lot of comments (so many comments! My ego, it is huge again.) mentioning how much you enjoyed my commentary. My ranty, stream of consciousness babble is something I still haven't lost, so if you really miss me and want to read more, how about you check out my blog:

S.B.V



It's a fun little place of photos, drawings and random ponderings. And I would LOVE some more followers over there, if I'm honest.

'lo. It's me again. I haven't been making many icons lately, and I feel kind of bad that these are more VM ones, as I've been neglecting my other fandoms like woah lately. I actually do keep getting the craving to make HP icons, but I have to go through and screencap GoF, and I can't be arsed. Also, life stuff has been keeping me busy, and icons have kind of taken a back seat. Which is a shame. But luckily, I felt the need for new icons, so you all get them too! If you want them, obviously.

The first 9 of these are from s1, and are Veronica and Lilly-centric. I wanted Lilly icons, mainly. The rest are from s2, mostly the latter part, and some are from the finale. Which I'm assuming everyone has seen by now, but the only thing they spoil is that Veronica graduates. Shocking! Anyway. Clickity.

Oh! Caps by marishna.

Lilly, these are naked pictures!Collapse )

Veronica Mars s2 - so who crashed the bus?

exhausted

feeling like: exhausted

Man, I'm so freaking tired. So I apologise for some of these, because I'm exhausted, and kind of sick, and as soon as I finish writing this I am going to collapse into my bed. I rushed them a little, because I wanted to get them in before the end of the weekend, as the finale of Veronica Mars is on tv on Tuesday. So it gives you a couple of days to flash your bus-crash-theory icon about. :) If you actually want to, of course.

Quick disclaimer:

This post is spoiler free for the finale.



I haven't read any spoilers, except for eirefaerie's convincing speculation on who did it (omgitsototallywas) - these icons are just taken as fun. I mean, obviously I really do think that Felix crashed the bus, but that's neither here nor there.

Hello! Welcome. As per requested, I bring you another bunch of icons from The Mighty Boosh (my last batch can be found here).

Man, I love this show. I saw the live show on Saturday - the last night - and it just made me adore it even more. And I was sitting on the front row. Just thought I'd throw that in there. It was amazing. It made me need to make icons. So these, right here? Medicinal. :)

Also, Matt Berry showed up! Squee! I have a deep and sensss-ual love for that man, so you will find a lot of Dixon Bainbridge icons in this lot. I can't quite explain why I love him so. I just do. That voice. Yum. Plus, you've got to love the steely afro. Like a brillo pad.

3: Please credit, preferably in keywords. I work hard on these.
4: NO STEALING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. This means no passing these off as your own work. No posting these in 'stolen icons' communities. If I discover any of these have been stolen, I will force you to listen to Howard Moon's jazz classics until your ears implode.

Hey, my peepies. I have Veronica Mars icons for you again. I'm at home with the lurgy today so I decided to use my sick time productively. It's probably not especially normal to be off work with a stinking cold and spend the whole time making 50+ icons, but I'm not especially normal.

I warn you, though, I'm probably not at my wittiest. I am gross and spluttery.

Oh, quick disclaimer - all of these are from s2, up to and including episode 2x13, I thinks. So if you haven't seen that far, you might get spoiled. Not drastically, but a bit.

Rules!

3 - Want! Take! Have! You don't need to ask. Just tell me, bitches.
4 - Don't hotlink! Or I'll let Weevil and his bikers run you down with their bikes. And then Weevil's adorable (but evil) niece will stamp on your contorted form.
5 - Don't steal! Or post in Stolen Icons communities! Or claim as your own! It's nasty. And I'll force you to watch Kristin Cavalleri's guest-stint again and again and again and again until your head explodes from teh wooden.

ETA: Whoops. Caps from cap_it - mostly marishna and awakencordy.

Ok! Whew, that coding took a loooooong time. Note to self: Do not post more than 30 icons in one go. 54? Right out. Thank god for Dreamweaver and copy and paste, I say.

Anyway. Veronica Mars! The best show on television at the moment. I love it so. I've been gradually making icons since I started watching it, but for ages they sucked and then suddenly I got the hang of it (the caps have slightly unusual lighting and so need special treatment. It's... well, annoying. But solved now!) and I made a zillion. And I've been meaning to post them for ages but every time I think of it, I go 'Oooh, I should update the text on that one' or 'Oooh, that sucks'. Etc.

Still, they're here now.

Rules!

1 - Comment if taking. It's only fair! And it makes me look popular.
2 - Credit! It's only fair! Cos, I made these, and I like people to know that, if you use them.
3 - Want! Take! Have! You don't need to ask. Just tell me, bitches.
4 - Don't hotlink! Or I'll tie you to the flagpole in Neptune, set fire to you, and then rip the tape off your private parts while they are aflame. It will hurt.
5 - Don't steal! Or post in Stolen Icons communities! Or claim as your own! It's nasty. And I'll force you to watch a compilation of all of Jackie's scenes. It will hurt.

30 Goblet of Fire icons

at December 5th, 2005 (10:34 pm)
good

feeling like: twisted
listening to: Harold and Kumar get the Munchies.

Yay! I've finally seen Goblet of Fire (twice) and it rawks. It so does.

So, I present you lots of icons ripping the piss out of it.

...what?

*g* I nitpick because I love. And I mock because I love. And I make lewd jokes because I love. And I routinely accuse all the Potter boys of being gay because I love.

And I'm sure about half the people on my flist will be saying 'She's back!' because many years ago, when I started this icon journal, I was known for my funny icons. Then I got all serious and arty. Anyway, I'm back with the sick icons and there's a whole new bunch of you I can warp with my sense of humour.


Rules

1 - Want, take, have. These icons are here for your viewing pleasure.
2 - Comment if you're taking. I like feedback. It makes me feel like a big strong dynamo.
3 - Credit is required. Since I gave up the opium, it's the only fix I get these days. Seriously. Addicted. Help a junkie out.
4 - NO STEALING. Don't pass them off as your own work. Don't post them in 'stolen icons' communities. DON'T HOTLINK. I work hard on these, and it's just plain mean. And hotlinking actually costs me money, and if I find out, I will replace the icon with something unpleasant. Possibly containing a word containing 'runt'. In fact, if you steal these in any way shape or form I will hunt you down and feed you to Voldemort.


I'm assuming everyone has seen the film by now, but if you haven't, look away now, as there are Voldemort icons in here. And that's the biggest surprise of the film. It rawks.

Screencaps by teh_indy, plus a few promo photos from The Leaky Cauldron.

20 Harry Potter icons (mostly Hermione's dress)

tired

feeling like: tired
listening to: Franz Ferdinand: Eleanor Put Your Boots On

So, here's the thing. That's how I begin all my posts, ever.

And, also, this is the thing I meant. There's this whole thing going on in the icon world, because in the Goblet of Fire book, Hermione has a blue robe (not a dress! Why does no one moan about that, huh?) and in the film, she has a pink dress. And there are all these icons, much like the one I'm using now (unless you're viewing this far in the future when I've deleted that icon, in which case you're looking at my default), which have the ball shots of Hermione wearing a blue dress, via Photoshop trickery. So, I have decided to iconise the wank. Cos, it is wank. Fairly peaceful wank, but wank nonetheless.

So scroll on past the rules (but you'd better read them, or I'll beat you to death with a fishslice) and click the cut to see more...


Rules:

1: Want, take, have. These icons are here to be shared, you don't need to ask if you can take them.
2: Comment if you're taking... please. It makes me happy to see if my icons are popular. It also helps me to see what styles are the most successful so I can keep making them like that.
3: Please credit, preferably in keywords. I work hard on these.
4: NO STEALING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. This means no passing these off as your own work. No posting these in 'stolen icons' communities. DEFINITELY NO HOTLINKING - yes, it is a form of stealing, and it does cost me money. If I discover any of these have been stolen, I will come after you and jab you with a wand so that you're entirely covered in little holes and will eventually die a slow and painful death of blood loss, due to the perforation.



It's a dress, not a robe. Robes have SLEEVES.Collapse )

Ok, I made some more Serenity icons, seeing as my last lot were so popular. :) Seriously, you guys, I wasn't expecting that. And these probably aren't as good. But, y'know, I try.

If you haven't seen it yet... WHY??? Go and see it now this second. I swear, I'm going to start posting spoilers in my SUBJECT LINES so you GO AND SEE IT. TWICE! THREE TIMES! If you go three times and then send off your ticket stubs to Universal, they send you a goody bag. And I've already been twice.

*ahem*

I meant to say, if you haven't seen it, there are no spoilers - these are all caps from the trailers. But I mean it. Go and see it. Now. Now this second.

I'm sorry. There isn't much Simon or Jayne in here. There will be. There just aren't that many caps of them from the movie yet. I will progress to the show soon, I promise, and then there will be naked Simon. Yup.

Rules:

1: Want, take, have. These icons are here to be shared, you don't need to ask if you can take them.
2: Comment if you're taking... please. It makes me happy to see if my icons are popular. It also helps me to see what styles are the most successful so I can keep making them like that.
3: Please credit, preferably in keywords. I work hard on these.
4: NO STEALING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. This means no passing these off as your own work. No posting these in 'stolen icons' communities. If I discover any of these have been stolen, I will set Joss Whedon's wife on you. She beats him, you know. That's why he always puts violent women in his work. Deep seated psychological trauma.

Also, while we're on Joss Whedon, he's my new BFF. Look at my icon. Aren't we so OTP? Yes, we met, it was awesome, and look at how happy he is to be posting with me. Although, some official guy took a photo, too, and I would kind of like to know who he is. Cos, creepy, right? It's like when someone took my photo at the HBP queue party at Waterstones, and it ended up on Mugglenet. Well, that wasn't so creepy. But if this person isn't from something official, that's creepy. At least it's a good photo. *sigh* Oh, I'm sorry, icons.

(ETA: I had to reupload the Neville/Gillyweed icon, as it was being hotlinked. So, if you are hotlinking it, you'll find a nice pissed off message in its place. But, obviously, don't hotlink. It costs me money.)

Ok, I finally sat down and made a bundle of GoF icons, because I have like a zillion images saved on my computer, and really, they need to be iconed. I am very, very excited about this movie. Cuaron really set such a new precedent with PoA, they can't avoid the darkness anymore. So, yay! Deaths and all sorts, hurrah, hurrah! And, look! Eeeebil dark greeen layout! Mweee!

2 - Comment if taking... please? I like to know if my icons are popular. And it helps me to see which styles are best to continue with. :)
3 - Please credit, preferably in keywords. I work hard on these.
4 - NO STEALING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. No posting these in Stolen Icons communities. No passing off as your own work. If I discover any of these have been stolen, I will go Crucio on your arse. Followed by Sectusempra.

7 Mighty Boosh icons

I hate having to post things through Photobucket. Because I have my own, very pretty domain name, all about me, and not being able to use that pisses me off. It’s because – and I know you’re wondering – we just moved house, and don’t have the internet at home yet. When we do, I can hook up CoreFTP again. I was going to install it here, at work, but I worry about getting caught.

Anyway, I bring you icons from the woooorld of the Miiighty Boosh. Which most of you probably won’t have heard of, but hey. It’s a very funny British comedy show, but it’s exceedingly weird, and you have to be either high or exceedingly weird to appreciate it. I am the latter, and I love it.

Ok, here we have my first - but definitely not only - lot of Serenity/Firefly icons (there are, like, two from the series, but there's so no point splitting them up).

Yes, I've seen it, a full two weeks before it's due to open in the UK. And it's freaking amazing. I got free tickets to a 'mystery preview screening' by Empire magazine on Monday - all we knew was that it was a film by Universal that wasn't out yet, that would excite the geeky readers of a movie magazine. Oh, and the tickets were referred to as 'shiny'. Yeah, we had our suspicions, and we were right! Seriously, you guys, it's so good. Even if you don't think you're a fan, you should go, I bet you'd like it. It makes Revenge of the Sith look like the complete and utter shit that it was.

You're not allowed to disagree with that statement, by the way. My journal. Mine. *glare* Well, ok, you can disagree, but if you try and post defending the abysmal writing skills of a man who refers to dialogue as 'sound effects' I will just ignore you. And mock you, probably.

Anyway.

Rules:

1: Want, take, have. These icons are here to be shared, you don't need to ask if you can take them.
2: Comment if you're taking... please. It makes me happy to see if my icons are popular. It also helps me to see what styles are the most successful so I can keep making them like that.
3: Please credit, preferably in keywords. I work hard on these.
4: NO STEALING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. This means no passing these off as your own work. No posting these in 'stolen icons' communities. If I discover any of these have been stolen, I will abduct you, throw you into my spaceship, take you up into the air and feed you to the Reavers. Oh yes. They're real. And hungry for hotlinkers.

I should also quickly say that these icons ARE NOT SPOILERY. I have way too many people on my friends list who would gut me alive if I spoiled them for this (and there are some beeeeeeg spoilers), so I'm not even making any spoilery icons until - oh, possibly ever. I fear the wrath of others. All the caps are from one of the fairly short trailers, so you should be safe.

26 icons under the cut...Collapse )

If I discover any of these have been stolen, I will chop you up into tiny little pieces using a rusty saw and nail the bits of you to a billboard in the middle of London. Oh, don't think I won't.

...this is the end, my only friend, the end...'Collapse )

Ok! And I'm done! This was really fun, if not a little stressful at the end. I really didn't think I'd get them all done in time, and I did! Today is actually the deadline, so yay me! I am incredibly awesome.

Feel free to request any tutorials.

General boring admin-y update
by Sarah (maidofawesome)

bored

feeling like: bored

I’ve removed everyone who was listed as a member of this journal. From now on, you just have to friend this journal, you can’t join the community. Basically there was no point having an option to join. No one else was ever going to be allowed to post except for me, and it made the userinfo page look very cluttered, and I like things neater. Also now I can keep a record of everyone who has friended me. And, 200+? Awww, you guys.

Expect the final batch of Harry Potter icons for 100of__ by the end of this week. I’m also starting a set of Sin City icons, and a few Spaced ones for abc_icons (which aren’t finished yet, but again, by the end of the week).

Also, I’m currently writing a tutorial which should be finished by the weekend. There’s a new tutorial on how to do effective tiny text here, for you beginners.

I’m currently closed for icon and layout requests, as I’ve been inundated by requests from my fabulous friendslist, but once I’ve got through all of them I might open up requests on here again.

You may have noticed that I have a new layout. Because I have a permanent account on my personal lj now, I’ve transferred my paid time over to this journal, and I think I’ll be keeping up a paid account here. So, I’ve added tags to all the entries – you can see them listed in the side bar, just click on the subject that interests you and those posts will come up. So if you’re just here for Harry Potter, click those tags.

I’m aware that probably half the people who have friended this journal – if not more – did so for the funny icons I used to post. I’m also aware that I haven’t posted funny icons for a while (ok, the odd one, but nothing particularly great). I promise I will start making funny icons again. I think my icons have become far too serious, and while pretty icons are nice, there are many of them, and there can never be enough funny icons. So, more, soon, I promise.

I leave you with this tantalising piece of information. If you search the photos of the Waterstones (London, UK) launch of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince on mugglenet, you will see a photo of yours truly. See if you can guess which I am.

The end!
