mermaids are pretty

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:

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.

21 Hogfather icons

21 icons from the recent adaptation of Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. Mostly of Susan... I thought Michelle Dockery was fantastic. And she's so pretty!

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! Don't steal! Or post in Stolen Icons communities! Or claim as your own! It's nasty. If you do, I'll set Mr. Teatime on you and tell him you mispronounced his name.

25 VM Icons (s1/s2)

Rules!

4 - Don't hotlink! Don't steal! Or post in Stolen Icons communities! Or claim as your own! It's nasty. If you do, I'll have no choice but to cut off all your fingers with a pair of wirecutters. You hear me? NO. CHOICE.

'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.

Veronica Mars s2 - so who crashed the bus?

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.

26 The Mighty Boosh Icons

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.

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 force you to listen to Howard Moon's jazz classics until your ears implode.

52 Veronica Mars Icons (s2)

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!

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 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.

54 Veronica Mars Icons

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

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.
