32 Liv Tyler icons. [30 Dec 2008|07:59pm]
I finally figure I've got enough icons from my entries to the liv_stillness icontest to make up a whole post, so here we go!

Some of them make me boggle, 'cause my experimental tendencies have come out frequently while making icons to enter there, and I'm certainly not always successful. Forgive me, people. XD

Icons are shown in the order they were entered, and you can hover over any icon to see where it placed (if at all!).

Now who wants to take a trip down memory lane with me?! I knew you would!

Okay, so those icons behind that Cut are ones I entered between challenges #172 - #195. But my dirty little secret is that I entered about ten of the challenges way back between #18 - #29. Want to see my oldschool Liv icons? Of course you do. Here are a few choice examples (P.S. Safety goggles recommended):

Oh, God, it burns!Collapse )

Enjoy what you can! :)

52 Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) icons. [11 Oct 2008|02:43pm]
Dean's turn now! Apologies to dial-up users (myself included), but I like to think it's worth the load time. ;)

Same deal as the Sam Winchester set: potential spoilers for season 1 and 2, and an apology if these pictures have been iconned to death. I'd say they're hot enough that most fans won't mind seeing them again, though, right? XD I know I've spent hours staring at them (during the making and well after) and I'm not sick of them yet.

Enjoy. :D

Images from SPN Media again. Colouring by yours truly (same as the Sam set). :)

Hope you like 'em, guys! Was like choosing a favourite child to pick the teaser icons.

39 Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) icons. [07 Oct 2008|09:57pm]
Because there is no bigger Sam fan than whisperintheway (see, Cherry, I'm a good friend), I present Winchesticons.

Apologies if these images (spoiler warning for seasons 1 and 2?) have been iconned to death, but I haven't ventured into the SPN graphics section of fandom for fear of spoilers, so I don't really know. Hopefully they're different enough to ones you've seen before that I can get away with it. :D

I made this set a few months ago, so I'm not really pleased with a few of them anymore, but I think some are really nice. Hope you do too.

Enjoy!

Images from SPN Media (where'd that site go, anyway?). Colouring by yours truly (go me!).

Stay tuned for a Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) set in the near future. :D

Part Two: 32 textless icons.Collapse )

As with the first set, I modified a tutorial by cadburied for the colouring.

Hopefully the next set of icons I make won't take as long as these two did. ;)

33 Keira Knightley icons. Part 1. [24 May 2007|03:27am]
Whew. It sure has been a while since I posted here. The reason (well, the main reason; another is that I'm somewhat lazy) for that can be explained by a hard drive crash that I suffered some time ago, wherein I lost everything I use to make icons, including the pictures I use in them. Unfortunate stuff. Until now, I'd been too depressed to make more icons, but I got the urge the other day, and this was the result. :D

Presenting Part 1 of a two part set of Keira Knightley icons! I'm not a huge fan, but I can't deny she makes a pretty picture box.

To get the colouring, I modified a tutorial by cadburied. Yes, I've used this tutorial before, but I really like it. :( If there were some other good colouring tutorials out there that were as pretty and colourful and simple (seriously, who has time to spend twenty minutes making a single icon? Minimalism, my friends!) as this one is, maybe I'd use those! But, as it stands, I'm yet to find one.

Hope people like 'em, 'cause the second batch is coming soon! :)

ETA: For Part 2, click here! :D

Colouring's thanks to another tutorial by twistedlaletz. :)

Couldn't resist me some more Orli either. *wiggles eyebrows*

Return of the glowy pink circle!11

Hm. Seriously, though, I'm not sure how I feel about these icons. I used a tutorial (by twistedlaletz) for the colouring, but I modified a number of things, changed a lot of opacities, added a layer or two, etc. It has the potential to look great (and does, no offense meant to the tutorial maker at all), but it seems to require a very specifically coloured base image for it to come out in full glory.

Or maybe I'm just not doing it right.

I don't know. I quite like some of them! I just wanted to make icons. :( Can't decide who to make next, though. Orli, Liv, Lij, someone else? Dom? Evey, maybe? Perhaps I could make some 'Lost,' LotR, or HP icons! Ah, well, I'm doomed to predictability, whatever I choose! *stubborn fangirl*

Yeah, yeah, more tutorials. It's not my fault my brain is a few words short of a Drabble and can't come up with this stuff on its own! The real culprit here is cadburied, so go blame her! *shifty eyes* I didn't really tweek very much unless the picture I used required more brightness or less contrast, etc. :)

This is the first time I've made one of those "random pink glowy circle thingy" icons, hooray! They fascinate me for some reason. Do they look all right to you guys?

I have to be very honest and admit that I'm actually not a Scarlett fan at all (though she's quite pretty, I'll give her that), but I wanted to make icons, and I knew I had enough pictures of her to make a decent sized set, so I figured why not! My sister has disowned me. XD

P.S. To those on dial-up: I'm really sorry for the loading time. I would've saved them as GIFs to cut down on it, but they whacked out on me as GIFs tend to do with certain images, so I had to go with JPG on maximum. :( Forgive?

Another tutorial set? From me? No way! I'm so original! ... stfu. Okay, the colouring's thanks to a tutorial by desiderio very slightly edited by me. Happy now? P.S. I love you all, really.

This is also the first time I've really attempted to use masks in (what I would hope is) an effective way and en masse. Have I done okay?
